Canon City House Rental Photos and Description
5 Bedroom, 3.5 Bath, Sleeps 10-12
Centrally & conveniently located about an hour from the Colorado Springs Airport as well as an hour from the sights of Canon City, Westcliffe, & LaVeta yet a mere 20 minutes from great amenities in Pueblo, this remarkable vacation rental is situated on 100 glorious very private (there isn't another home in sight), ponderosa pine-filled acres. Beulah Valley is known for its beauty and history & the quaint mountain village of Beulah (about 4 miles away) has a general store w/fuel, an antique shop, post office and restaurant. Be sure to check out the historical society, too!
This lovely, spacious, timberframe home beckons you to linger for a while on the 12-foot-wide deck that surrounds the perimeter of the 5,600 s/f house... snuggle up in the hammock, hike through the pines, explore the surroundings, stand in awe (from only a few yards away on the deck) of the abundant wildlife ~ elk, deer, turkeys & dozens of hummingbirds. The summer garden is beautiful & always happy for an extra hand at weeding. Above all take deep breaths of cool, clear mountain air and marvel at the breathtaking, unobscured views of 12,352 ft. high 'Old Baldy' (Greenhorn Mountain). At night gaze in wonder at the brightly starlit sky and fall asleep to the songs of the coyotes.
The home is window-filled on all 3 levels and affords large families plenty of privacy on each level. The library on the third floor has floor-to-ceiling shelves lined with hundreds of fascinating titles. In addition to the library there are two bedrooms (1 full bed, 2 twins) & a full bath on the upper third floor.
The main level (2,500 s/f) with a 2 story stone wood-burning fireplace and grand piano for your enjoyment includes the master suite which opens on to the deck, another bedroom (full bed), the kitchen & dining room, pantry, laundry room and bath.
The refrigerator is stocked with condiments, the pantry with herbs, spices & basic canned goods all of which you are most welcome to use if you forget an essential ingredient. The kitchen is well supplied with dishware (service for 12 of everything), pots, pans, utensils and baking equipment. The corner hutch is filled with fine china & crystal if you feel like celebrating.
The light & window-filled, lower level walks out to the garden has a wet bar, full bath, huge bedroom (queen), living room w/gas fireplace (& blower) and a dining area.

This is a magical place for our large family who grew up in the South ~ now grown and living in 5 different states. We're all about tradition and spend precious time together in this special Colorado home. We've laughed and loved and made wonderful memories to cherish for a lifetime.
This property is a gem ~ secluded & private yet within 20 minutes of a major city and an hour or so in any direction of many major Colorado attractions.
The house is full of windows ~ to bring the outside in. The breathtaking view of the mountains from the wrap-around porch draw us to spend much of our early morning and evenings watching wildlife and enjoying the ever so quiet surroundings. You'll be in awe of the starry, starry night sky!
