Welcome to Mt. Ralphmore!
Absolutely the best in every way...location, scenic views & price. This mountain retreat is built in the Heart of the Colorado Rockies(more 14,000' mountains here than anywhere else in North America), breath-taking mountain views in every direction, best view of the famous Chalk Cliffs.
Overlooks & constructed on the banks of the beautiful Chalk Creek w/ floor to ceiling windows.. Enjoy the beauty (magnificent) & sounds of nature (bubbling creek below), watch the wildlife (deer, elk, fox) fish, hike or sit out on the 40' plus wrap around porch. The large screened in porch is great for outdoor eating and relaxing as well.
This is a warm & wonderfully built abode w/ all the comforts & amenities (maybe more) of home. With 3 full baths and 6 separate vanities, everyone gets accommodated.
Mt. Ralphmore is located just 15 min. & 23 min. respectively from the historic towns of Buena Vista & Salida, where charm, dining, shopping & galleries abound!
The San Isabel National Forest, St. Elmo (famous ghost town & great place to feed the chipmunks or rent jeeps/snowmobiles), Mt Princeton Hot Springs (Colorado's #1 hot springs)& the Arkansas River (great rafting or fly fishing) are all right here.
Monarch, Ski Cooper & Copper Ski Resorts are all 35-45 min. away, as is Leadville (lots of history there). Breckenridge is just a bit over an hour & Vail is 1 hr. & 30 min. Located 90 miles from Colorado Springs, flying in & out is easy.
Plenty of activities to enjoy year round. The best place to take a family, take a friend, take a break & take a vacation!

About Elizabeth Baker
We live in Dallas, have a career in real estate and a passion for design. We enjoy sharing what we have been blessed with!
Elizabeth Baker purchased this House in 2008
Why Elizabeth Baker chose Nathrop
We have been coming to this area for over 40 yrs. We built in this particular area because it is in such close proximity to all that Colorado has to offer. The view is tremendous and the location fabulous. It just does not get any better than this!
What makes this House unique
The best home in the area w/ the finest views. A very warm inviting home that sits on three+ acres overlooking Chalk Creek, the Chalk Cliffs, Mt Princeton & Mt Antero. Hearing the bubbling of the creek or viewing the Chalk Cliffs at sunrise, walking down Bunny Lane or driving up to St. Elmo, memories for a lifetime will be made.

Awesome mountain home for family getaway!
We had family members from VA and GA join family members from Colorado Springs for a post-Christmas get together. It couldn’t have been more perfect! The house was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed! It was a welcoming, cozy home, with majestic views. We enjoyed the grand stone fireplace every night. The master suite was spectacular! The kitchen was stocked with everything imaginable and looked like Joanna and Chip Gaines (from Fixer Upper) decorated it! The location was perfect as we were less than an hour away from snowmobiling and skiing. We will never forget this beautiful home and are so thankful we stayed there! Would recommend it to anyone!
Well, thank you! This review is as good as we could ever hope for and we hope you return! Have a wonderful New Year!
Perfect! In every way!
Gorgeous scenery, accommodations superior! Great place to gather with loved and treasured friends. We will return!
Aw, thank you!
My entire family (12 people) spent 3 days at Christmas here. It was an amazing adventure, a memory for a lifetime. Thank you for such an incredible space, for us to gather.
Only thing I didn't like was leaving!
Beautiful, well maintained and well furnished home with great views and a peaceful relaxing atmosphere. Enjoyed feeding all the birds from the porch railing and seeing the deer come up to the yard every day. Close to fun little towns and shopping. I really liked seeing the Elk and Antelope herds in the large pastures near Nathrop. We cooked a full Thanksgiving dinner in the large kitchen and grilled steaks on the outdoor grill. The fire pit by the running creek was a great place to smoke a good cigar and chill. After 10 days, none of us wanted to leave. We're ready to go back and do it again.
Aw, love this and yes return! Always welcome!
Cabin to perfection, Wildlife, and Mountains!
Bill and I loved every minute of our time in your fabulous Colorado cabin! I had high expectations that were far exceeded when I experienced it. Bill did not know what to expect and was blown away from the moment we drove in the driveway, and there were deer surrounding the property. Bill loved feeding the deer and the birds.
The cabin is fabulous with every detail to perfection! It’s spacious, clean, comfortable, beautifully decorated, and sitting in a valley of beauty surrounded by gorgeous mountains!
We enjoyed long walks in a beautiful setting, and eating and shopping in Buena Vista, Gunnyson and Salida.
I would definately reccomend Mt. Ralphmore to my friends and family!
Thank you for a wonderful memory,
Thank you very much!
ABSOLUTELY SMITTEN WITH THIS PLACE!!!
I have come to this gorgeous vacation home for several years, now. It is relaxing, gorgeous, peaceful, fun, inviting, and comfortable! From the creek, to the walks/hikes, views of mountains, deer, birds, foxes, and fabulous air to breathe, I wouldn't stay anywhere else!
Mt. home is just one mile from natural hot springs and all that has to offer. Kids and adults enjoy the year round pools and springs and spa. Another wonderful short and beautiful drive is on up the road to St. Elmo, old historic ghost town with seasonal offroading vehicles, feeding the chipmunks and antiquing. Great spots to sled in the winter months. Agnes Falls, another short drive up the road, one can hike up and see gorgeous sights all in under an hour.
