About Patty

I moved to Chaffee County, Colorado in 1985 to work and play in the mountains. I worked at Monarch Ski Area as the Director of Snowcat Tours. I also started and owned a rafting photography business, Sunshine Studio, on the Arkansas River. The area has endless opportunities for outdoor recreation.

Patty purchased this house in 2008

Why Patty chose South Central Colorado

My wife and I always wanted a property near Mt. Princeton with geothermal hot water. We were blessed with this house which was located on Chalk Creek and had a geothermal spring that produces geothermal water at six gallons per minute. That's over 300 gallons an hour and over 4000 gallons a day of mineral enriched hot therapeutic soaking water.

What makes this house unique

Soaking in hot water wataching the cosmos. Other activities are endless, such as hiking, biking, fishing, skiing, rafting, rock hounding, horse back riding, mountaineering, and on and on and on. All those who wander are not always lost.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful weekend at the beautiful mountain cabin. Amazing views, wildlife and activities kept us busy. There are no words to explain the pool at night under the stars. We hope to visit again, and make this our getaway for many years to come.

Peaceful Winter Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The cabin itself is comfortable and inviting, but the hot springs are just about perfect, especially if you sit in it while it's snowing lightly.

Owner overcharged me - stay somewhere else!

  • 1 of 5

The owner charged me twice for our stay. I could understand an honest mistake, but it took over two months and lots of hassle before I finally got my money back. Don't risk your credit card number with this owner!

Owner's Response: Upon the traveller issuing her concern I sent a check overnight. She was not satisfied with this. It took some time to reissue a credit card refund as so much time had passed since the error had been detected. It was an honest mistake that was immediately corrected. I was very sorry . Patty
