The previous owner designed and built the three cottages in 2001--architecturally, it was designed based on what he thought Thomas Jefferson may have built--the scale is much smaller however—he believed Thomas Jefferson was the greatest architect for visual effect in the history of our country. Valley Glen is a truly unique place to stay in the Colorado mountains!
Amy Nordquist purchased this cottage in 2001
The mountains offer serenity and in our busy lifestyles, we all need that relaxation. This location combines a blend of a remote, romantic oasis with access to outdoor activities, historic locations, and the entertainment of gambling, shopping, and dining.
the Big Horn Sheep hang around frequently along with deer, elk, and my favorite is the awesome little Hummingbirds that stay around from May through Sept.
"you can't improve upon perfection. You are the example of graciousness. This cottage is so lovely and down to the very best detail. Seventeen sparkling windows, excellent quality facial bathroom tissues. I have visited 39 lodges/cottages in PA & CO and yours is absolutely the very best. This is far above the Broadmoor & The Ritz Carlton in Denver. We'll be back in the summer! Nothing could be better! You really take the prize for cleanliness and attention to detail.".
If you are looking for a cozy cottage, next to a mountain stream with tons of character, look no further. We LOVED this place and are certain you will too! The location is tucked away, yet only 20 minutes away from Cripple Creek. Giving you the option of having a glass of wine by a warm quite fire, or a cocktail during a night out on the town.
great location and perfect hospitality
Iloved the property and the surrounding area its a great place if you want quiet and relaxation
Valley Glen is nestled inside a narrow canyon which offers seclusion and quietness. The cottage we stayed in was well equipped, nicely decorated, roomy and very comfortable. We stayed in February while there was still a blanket of snow covering the grounds. The rippling brook just outside our front door created a beautiful scene with relaxing sounds. We imagine the summer and fall months would be ideal as there are brick patios along the stream, a gazebo, fire pits with tables and chairs . It's an easy drive from Valley Glen for sightseeing to Mueller State Park nearby and the old mining towns of Victor and Cripple Creek also just a few miles away.
My partner and I had a very relaxing weekend in this beautiful cottage tucked into a canyon near Mueller State Park. The cottage is beautifully furnished and a perfect peaceful getaway from the city. We snowshoed the trails in Mueller State Park and donated our money to the slot machines at Cripple Creek. A fun, fun weekend.
Absolutely the most relaxing vacation we have had! Loved the coziness of the cottage! The property is beautiful and away from it all! You get to disconnect from the real world and just enjoy the beauty of Colorado! Amy's dedication to making her guests feel welcome is what makes it all so charming! We can't wait to come back! Thank you Amy!
