Better than the photos!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing, just amazing. We had so much fun and it was beautiful. We did not want to leave. Kent is a really nice guy and was so helpful. We are hoping to make it back in a few years just to lay around on the property and have another vacation!

Girls Weekend!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time staying at Kent & Janie's home. Kent met us there when we arrived to give us the tour. He was very helpful and not at all invasive. This was a great space that fit all 7 of us comfortably. We did crafts, painted and drank lots of wine. The pizza oven was great!!! Highly recommended!

Great New Year Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great New Year at this property! It had everything you could possibly need and was in good shape. A previous renter had damaged the cooktop and Kent was worried about that, he was very kind in explaining the property, and the slight damage to the cooktop did not negatively affect us at all. If you have a chance definitely check this rental out!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. 4 couples, lots of room. The beds were all wonderful and we all got wonderful sleep. The surroundings were the best. Great area to relax and enjoy the mountains. Friends hoping to do daughters wedding their. Close to Estes Park despite the construction.

Kent was great in lending tools when an issue came up with one of our vehicles window. Thanks again Kent. They meant all of our request. One needs to only bring clothes and food, everything else is here. Games, cook ware, we mean everything. Thanks again for a wonderful stay.
