My family and I had the best Christmas vacation ever. It snowed at Midnight on Christmas day, it made a perfect Christmas for this Texas family. Thank you so much for letting us use your wonderful home to make great memories. We definitely want to book this property in the future for another vacation.
We reserved Tbirds for our family of 6, plus a few occasional family members that dropped by while we were on vacation. The house was breath-taking. We really loved the set-up.
We did not venture very far into the property, but what we saw was beautiful. There was plenty of room for our rambunctious 8 year old to roam and explore. The night sky was amazing from either deck, as well.
The days were fairly hot, in the mid 80's, but the nights cooled down nicely. With windows open on the east and west sides of the house, it was quite cool and relaxing. The basement was always cool, and the games and pool table provided a lot of entertainment when it was raining or night time.
We took day trips to San Isabel (30 mins), Mission:Wolf (1 Hour), Westcliffe (20 mins), several mountain trails (< 1 hour), Cripple Creek (< 2 hours), and Salida (1 hour). We also did a couple hikes in the Sangre De Cristos, and rode our UTV/dual sport on multiple trails in the area. Custer county also is open to OHV's on the right-of-ways, so we permitted the machines and toured the area directly around T Birds. Needless to say, the proximity of the house to all of this was perfect. We also just sat around a couple of days, too:)
Nothing was lacking in the house. All necessary utensils, cookware, laundry items, etc. were on hand. Quite honestly, I have never seen a rental house so personally appointed by the owners. It felt more like friends loaning us their home than an Internet rental.
We had a couple questions about the Internet and TV upon arrival and Bryan and Tonya were very responsive. They also tended to my every question prior to arriving ( I can be a pain). We sincerely appreciated the opportunity they provided to us for a bucket-list trip; parts of which were in the making for 25 years (hike to Lakes of the Clouds).
We only hope we can make it back to T Birds in a much shorter time frame than it took us to get there the first time. Thank you, sincerely.
We reserved the T-Bird Lodge for nine people for a buddy's bachelor trip, which accommodated all of us comfortably. The cabin itself was incredible. The view from the back deck gave an amazing view of the mountains and the yard provided ample room for activities (football and crawfish boil for us). The cabin was also stocked pretty well. Plenty of pots, pans, plates, and cups. It also has plenty of towels and washcloths. The location is also fairly remote, giving the feeling you have the Colorado mountains to yourself. The pictures do not do this place justice and we were all talking about reserving the place again for a return trip. The owner's are also very responsive and accommodating.
Everything was well planned for us by the owners. They communicated very well. The house was incredible and the views are amazing. I hope the new owners continue to VRBO this house because we will definitely visit again if available. Thank you for letting us visit the house!!
We loved our week at the T-Bird Lodge! 4 adult couples and two kids fit perfectly in this vacation rental for a fall wedding. The space available in this house is perfect for all different personalities to enjoy a week together. The view was spectacular. The quiet grounds were fun to explore and even though the altitude at this rental is close to 8,800 ft ASL we didn't even notice except when hiking up some of the steeper spots on property. We enjoyed all the decks, especially the back deck on the 5 moonless nights we had. The milky way and stars were spectacular at this property.
The kitchen was tight for 4 adults but perfectly appointed with all we needed to make breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Rave reviews from all members of our group. Thanks to your family for renting out this great property!! It was a perfect rental experience from the inquiry to check-in. The owners are great to work with and you won't be disappointed!
My husband and I and our 3 grown children stayed here to attend a wedding at Historic Pines Ranch, traveling from Portland, OR; Chicago and Manhattan. We were so happy we stayed here instead of in town (Westcliffe) or at the ranch as this property was so calming and quiet. The 4 bedrooms afforded plenty of privacy, the views are great, the walks are great and the local people in town (Westcliffe and Silver Cliff) are great. Westcliffe now has a very nice grocery store. It is a nicely appointed house as well--thanks for a great stay. The Wet Mountain Valley is an under appreciated gem in Colorado.
