Kim purchased this House in 2000
Why Kim chose Coal Creek
This is our family home. We liked the idea that we could share our slice of heaven with others looking for the true rocky mountain high experience! When the owner is in town there is the possibility of the family being on land. It's 11 acres, so lots of room! If in town during a booking & if they opt to stay on property during your visit, they have a separate, private fenced off area in which they stay, or separate entrance back apt. room, (which isn't part of the Vacation Rental). They totally respect guests privacy and are here to be of service if needed, otherwise, they keep to themselves and will never enter the main Ranch House rented during your stay. Pony rides, Special Events; parties, weddings, retreats, etc. and also catering are available for extra fees.
What makes this House unique
Beautiful Views, wildlife, serenity, fresh mountain air, hiking and mountain biking nearby, close to skiing, gaming, shopping, 45 min to downtown Denver. Within 30 min to Boulder and Nederland and 20 minutes to Downtown Golden. Lovely Coal Creek Canyon Community. We are away from City lights so the Stars at night from our land are truly wonderful, most of the time you can see the Milky Way, great to gaze upon while soaking in the outdoor Hot Tub!

I just returned from our family vacation at Kim's ranch home and words cannot describe how incredibly wonderful our stay was. :) Below is the list of things we absolutely loved and appreciated at the ranch:
- The house is HUGE!
- Kim has provided more than just the basic necessities all around the home for a comfortable stay. For example, besides coffee, sugar, spices, she also stocked some additional food items in the refrigerator for us to use during our stay. Including wine! :)
- Kim was personally there to give us a walkthrough of the home just so we could understand and operate all the things provided in the house for us to use. She was also available via phone to speak with in case we had any additional questions.
- Kim has been incredible with communicating any and all the necessary information that would make our stay extremely comfortable.
- Kim has also provided information about the local history and/or tour guides for local places to visit. The hot tub, wi-fi and home phone, pool table, piano, etc. were simply the icing on the cake! :)
- All the items provided in this home are very unique and novel. The unique lighting in the home simply added to the coziness and warmth of the place. We even got to experience a fox that came trotting right in our back yard and got some food. It felt like a genuine experience of living in the mountains of Coloraro. :)
- The home is located only 20-25 mins drive from Boulder and/or Golden. The drive to and back is also enjoyable.
Thank you Kim for sharing your home with us. We thoroughly enjoyed staying at your home and would most certainly come and stay there again next time. :)
It was so lovely having your family here, you are all most welcomed back anytime!
Beautiful and peaceful. It was exactly what we needed
The property is so beautiful. It was a pleasure to just relax with some friends for a few days. Kim was an absolute joy, and she does so much for her guests. When we arrived, she gave us a full tour of both the house and the property. My friends and I created many memories that we will forever cherish at Kims ranch.
Lovely house; horses, mountains, snow... idyllic setting- everything was beautiful and well accommodated
Thank you Robin, I am so glad your family enjoyed your stay at our Ranch! If you’re ever in our neck of the woods again you would be most welcomed back and I do give a “repeaters” discount.
Amazing place to stay
Awesome stay in the mountains.
Kim was a great host, and her home was very lovely. The views, the snow, the horses, and the whole house was just great. This was my first visit to Colorado, and the location and amenities on this ranch were beyond my expectations. The pool table, piano, and hot tub were great additions. We even found a pretty stocked up kitchen, which was great for some items we didn't think to purchase. Included a slow cooker, rice cooker, a kitchen-aid stand mixer, and more... Made me feel like I was at home in my own kitchen. There were labels every where, which I found extremely useful, I would recommend adding labels above the light switches, which are numerous. It was also very close to ski resorts and other activities and locations we wanted to visit. Only had one issue, which Kim addressed quickly and professionally. All in all I would recommend this location to anyone!!! Thanks Kim for inviting us into your your vacation home.
What a peaceful ranch!!!!
My three sisters and my daughter came up to celebrate my birthday at Rocky Mountain Ranch and we just loved it! There was plenty of room and all the amenities you can think of. We enjoyed the hot tub and a fire every single night. Ranch was so quiet and beautiful. Loved feeding the beautiful horses apples everyday.....they were so sweet. Kim was such a gracious and thoughtful host. I will definitely recommend the ranch to my family and friends when they come and visit me in Colorado. We had such a wonderful time! Thanks so much for your thoughtfulness Kim!
I am so glad that you were able to celebrate your Birthday with your family at our Ranch and I'm so glad you guys had such a nice time while here!
You would be most welcomed back anytime and I do give a "repeaters discount".
Blessings on your year,
Close to world class skiing, casino gambling, Gross Dam Res. for fishing, canoeing and animal watching, close to Golden, Boulder and Denver for the 'Urban' experience and close to quaint mountain towns and restaurants.
