These suggestions should help. Enjoy!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Mary,



Just wanted to thank you for the wonderful experience of being at your cabin during Christmas. Just as it was two years ago, everything was perfect. We've rented several cabins at Crestone over the last 20 years, and yours is by far the best. We had a fantastic Christmas there and only wish we could have stayed longer. I've been going to Crestone since 1960 (just a week after I was born)!! The town has changed but it still has incredible appeal. Those mountains truly do emanate something magical. I feel more at home in Crestone than anywhere in the world.



Everything at the house seemed in perfect order. I did note that the little Buddha under which I think you have placed the back-up key was knocked over. Since we accessed the main key we didn't dig through the snow to see if the other key was there, but you may want to have your caretaker verify.



Thanks again. We hope to visit Crestone again sometime next year, and hopefully the fantastic Willow House will be available.

This place was incredible. The house was situated on a secluded lot with a beautiful stream running in the back yard down a mountain path. The home itself was lovingly decorated, with many hidden treasures tucked here and there. At the top is a meditation room where we spent a lot of time viewing the valley and mountain top. We spent a memorable morning watching the sun rise over the mountains. The home has a well equipped kitchen and bath. The bed was comfortable, and the garden was lovely. The owners were friendly and responsive. We will most definitely be back. It was magical.
