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.

We want your time at Wild TurkeyRanch to be memorable so let us know what we can do to make your vacation all you hope for.

About Hamp and Sherrie Howey

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.

Hamp and Sherrie Howey purchased this house in 2000

Why Hamp and Sherrie Howey chose Canon City

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.

What makes this house unique

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!

We had a wonderful time at the ranch in this beautiful mountain home. The views were as breathtaking as stated in the overview. Lots of wildlife entertained us and we made many more family memories. Hamp & Sherri are great and will do anything to make your stay wonderful. We have stayed in many VRBO homes and this one ranks as one of the best. We highly recommend this wonderful vacation rental!

We didn't want to leave!

We walked into this lovely home and immediately didn't want to ever leave! This very comfortable home welcomes the beautiful mountain view right inside with its many large windows. It was spacious enough for our four families (8 adults, 5 preschool grandchildren) to enjoy each other for a week. It's ideally located for day trips to many nearby Colorado attractions.

We had a wonderful time together playing games, cooking, hiking on the forested property, talking late into the night after the kids were in bed, relaxing on the porch and drinking in the view, and spotting wildlife. Seeing the double rainbow, watching the changing faces of the mountains, listening to rain on the roof, sleeping with the windows open and waking up to birdsong and deer outside, having breakfast on the deck…how could life get any better? Simply sitting and looking at the mountains and thanking their Creator was refreshing and restful.

The grandchildren adored the attic play room, the large covered wrap-around porch on rainy days, the hummingbirds in the hollyhocks, the baby birds almost ready to leave the nest right outside the window, and the Secret Garden, as they called it.

Hamp and Sherrie were so very gracious, friendly, and helpful to our family both before and during our stay. Their home is an outstanding property--we highly recommend it!

Most amazing luxury family getaway/kid paradise/nature-lover's oasis!
  • 5 of 5
My family and I were lucky enough to get to spend several weeks at Sherrie and Hamp's ranch in Beulah, and what a treat it was! The moment we drove up, the views absolutely took our breath away...the red barn, surrounded by beautiful grasses blowing in the breeze, set against the green, and then higher up, snow-capped mountains, all against a bright blue sky. The house is gorgeous with the 2 story wall of windows, the beautiful hardwood floors, the wrap around deck, the comfortable beds, but my favorite place was the library. Bookshelves filled with awesome books, super-comfy chairs, and an incredible view to the mountains...I could have spend the entire time there! Outside we saw so much wildlife: herds of deer and elk, a red fox, hundreds of brightly colored hummingbirds, bright bluebirds, toads (which the boys LOVED), wild turkeys. We had picnics almost every afternoon under the shade of a beautiful patch of trees just off the deck, we hiked all over the property (which is pretty amazing when you can do that right outside your back door!), we watched as storms came in over the mountains, we snuggled in front of the wood-burning fireplace on cold nights, and sat outside on the huge back decks sipping wine on warm evenings. This place is truly a slice of heaven! Sherrie and Hamp were absolutely wonderful to work with, and people we now consider friends. We absolutely hope to go back in the future...a fabulous place we would recommend to anyone.

Wow! What a place for the family to get together for my husband's 70th birthday. The home is beautifully set in the mountains west of Pueblo. Three generations had plenty of room to have personal space and the "downstairs den" was a great meeting area for all of us to gather to cheer the Spurs on to victory during the NBA playoffs. The well equipped kitchen with it's large table provided a meeting place for family meals. When we arrived we were pleasantly greeted by an eagle standing guard in a pine tree near the house. We watched the deer graze in the pasture in the mornings and evenings, and laughed at the hummingbirds taking turns at the feeders. The location provided us with a chance to take in the sites in the Pikes Peak area (approximately 60-90 minutes away), the Royal Gorge area, and return to the seclusion of this mountain hide-away. From the 10 of us to Hamp and Sherrie, thank you for sharing your home. We definitely have come away with pleasant and heart warming memories.

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This house and property is absolutely beautiful! We came for a relaxing trip; and this location was perfect. The mountain views are amazing, we saw deer and elk grazing in the early morning and evenings. We ate breakfast on the deck each morning and spent time on the hammock and comfy chairs.The yard is great for a game of bocce ball. The kitchen is great for cooking-well equipped. This house is far enough from a city that you feel "away from it all", yet near enough that is no trouble to go buy groceries or find a place to eat. Hamp and Sherrie are fantastic hosts! They are so welcoming, helpful and fun to meet. Our favorite restaurant in Pueblo was D Cs on B Street. The Pueblo Riverwalk is a great place to take a relaxing stroll. We felt Bishop's Castle was worth checking out-we drove through the San Isabel Forest to get there which is a scenic drive. We also went white water rafting in Canon City which was only an hours drive away. We highly recommend staying here!

Oh Wow! What a lovely view

  • 5 of 5
My teenage son’s first words walking into the front door was “Oh wow!” He was right. What a nice place for a family to vacation. This is a very comfortable home in a great location and the whole family loved spending time there. The views of the Wet Mountains to the south are breath taking. We loved sitting on the porch looking at the scenery, listening to the evening breezes rushing down the hills, and watching the deer grazing just a few yards away. The porch is also frequented by a flock of delightful Hummingbirds. The owners have made several paths throughout the woods on the property, perfect for hours of exploration. The home is lovely, very comfortable and obviously loved by the owners. Thank you Sherri and Hamp, we hope to visit again. We recommend this home to families large and small.
