About The Owner

My husband Steve and I are living with our daughter Julia in Boulder, CO. We love going to Crestone to get away from our busy life in Boulder. We love the quietness, the Crestone community, the Crestone Retreat Centers and in general, the more relaxed life style of the San Luis Valley. We try to spend as much time in Crestone as possible. When we are away from Crestone, we like to open this beautiful, peaceful place to visitors trying to get away from their busy lives.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose South Central Colorado

Our Crestone home is very open and light. Especially when you open the three doors it gives you a feeling of living within nature. No neighbors are close by. It is very quiet.

What makes this house unique

We love Crestone for it's beauty, the Crestone Peaks to the East and the San Luis Valley to the West. There is so much to do around Crestone: hiking, photography, biking, rock climbing, visiting historic sites, hot springs, skiing, just to mention a few.

beautiful pace

  • 5 of 5

This spot was as described. Very nice comfortable place with fantastic views. We loved it, and both of us wished we had more time here. Being novice to the area it would have been helpful to have some specific directions for where we might go for simple hikes, but we found plenty to do without that. Communications from the owner were great, and very helpful directions. Crestone is a throwback to the late 60's and very interesting place and the "Great Sand Dunes park" is amazing. Loved the area. and this nice place.

My first of what will be many rentals of this property. Very accurately represented, a tranquil environment with lots of friendly wildlife in the neighborhood. Great instructions from the Owners, what more does one need?
