Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a fabulous time in Colorado. Your house was wonderful. We have used VRBO many times for rentals all over the place, but yours was the best stocked of any place we have ever been. It was really nice to actually have enough silverware and dishes for 9 people and plenty of pats and pans to choose from. The bottle of wine upon our arrival was really a nice treat after a long day of driving and so very thoughtful. Thank you for everything.
