We fell in love this home the moment we stepped inside 7 years ago. It was then being operated as a boutique hotel. After continuing to operate the property as a hotel for several years (and garnering a lot of national publicity), the town shut us down due to zoning regulations. It was a blessing in disguise because now groups of people can enjoy the home without feeling like they are intruding on other people's vacations. Everyone can now experience our amazing home the way that we do, privately!
Our home is all about the views! Our favorite spot is in the hot tub on the deck of the Castle room, looking up at The Butte. We also love the interior architecture of the home...hand-forged iron railings, soaring exposed-beam ceilings, hickory floors, and windows, windows, windows!
