Why Rachelle Rausch chose

My husband and I bought this property because of the beauty of the surrounding areas and the incredible views from the home. Also the access is just off the paved road so it is very easy to find and get to. The beauty and warmth of this area is unparalleled and that is why we chose it to build our families full time home and raise our children in this community.

What makes this house unique

While staying here you will experience the peace and quiet of the mountains, the fresh air, the sights and sounds of wildlife and nature. Just open the sliding glass doors in the sunroom and let the breeze blow through and carry your stresses away. Just minutes to outdoor adventures such as hiking, mountain biking, rafting, skiing, fishing and more.

Very Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to get out of town and found this placed tucked back in the mountains. It has great views and very peaceful. It is away from the tourists but yet close to several mountain towns. It was great to be able to take our dog to a nice place with us. We went to the near by state park and hiked for an entire day because it was so beautiful. We had stopped by the market on the way to the house so after our hike we were able to make a nice meal and enjoy the great evening views. I highly recommend this place as either a stop in your trip or a weekend getaway.

Great views

  • 5 of 5

We found this place to be very calming. The views are great! It is tucked back so you don't have to bother with tourist but it is close to nice mountain towns. We were able to take our dog who goes every where with us. It is hard to find nice places that allow dogs. Being close to the state park made for a nice hike for us and the dog. I highly recommend this place as a getaway!

Beautiful Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful mountain home. It was a great place to hold our retreat. It had plenty of room for our large group, but was still comfy and cozy at the same time. The views were incredible. I highly recommend it!!
