Guestbook comments from the owner
"you can't improve upon perfection. You are the example of graciousness. This cottage is so lovely and down to the very best detail. Seventeen sparkling windows, excellent quality facial bathroom tissues. I have visited 39 lodges/cottages in PA & CO and yours is absolutely the very best. This is far above the Broadmoor & The Ritz Carlton in Denver. We'll be back in the summer! Nothing could be better! You really take the prize for cleanliness and attention to detail.".

The previous owner designed and built the three cottages in 2001--architecturally, it was designed based on what he thought Thomas Jefferson may have built--the scale is much smaller however—he believed Thomas Jefferson was the greatest architect for visual effect in the history of our country. Valley Glen is a truly unique place to stay in the Colorado mountains!

Amy Nordquist purchased this cottage in 2001

The mountains offer serenity and in our busy lifestyles, we all need that relaxation. This location combines a blend of a remote, romantic oasis with access to outdoor activities, historic locations, and the entertainment of gambling, shopping, and dining.

the Big Horn Sheep hang around frequently along with deer, elk, and my favorite is the awesome little Hummingbirds that stay around from May through Sept.
