About Linda Sivyer, My amazing sister who will spoil you!

My husband and I feel like we are in Paradise when we are at our home in Wildcat Ranch. We built our home and guesthouse to gather our large family and friends together. Our home "In Elk's Way" is truly a unique luxurious retreat that will generate memories that will last a lifetime.

Linda Sivyer, My amazing sister who will spoil you! purchased this estate in 1994

Why Linda Sivyer, My amazing sister who will spoil you! chose Northwest Colorado

With a very large blended family we wanted a vacation retreat that would allow our children to roam freely on a wildlife preserve, yet be close enough to the convenience and amenities of two great resort communities, Aspen and Snowmass.

What makes this estate unique

Our Wildcat Estate also has a Guesthouse that sleeps an extra 10 to 12 guests for an additional fee.

Plus.....a lake full of trout. Eagles soaring above. Elk, deer roam across 6800 private acres. Miles of trails for horseback riding and hiking.

Spectacular mountain views and serene lake views. Ultimate privacy, yet proximity to world class skiing, Aspen Music Festival, Aspen Institute events, great golf courses. The most unique mountain resort in the world.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The perfect retreat! Your own private Aspen world.

This amazing oasis was everything I had hoped for as a winter getaway. The privacy of a cottage and the luxury of a 5 star hotel with all the amenities, not to mention the tranquil, classic aspen winter landscapes that wildcat is famous for. My stay was perfect in every single way. Super close to the town and easy to drive in and out for skiing or enjoying the shops...etc. I have a job that is constantly in the public eye, so it was exactly what I needed to relax and unwind in a winter dream. Loved the owners!!! Super nice and accommodating. What a pleasure :)

I'll continue to make my winter memories here for years to come."

Mrs Fields Family Retreat - In Exclusive Wildcat Ranch - 20 Min From Aspen, CO
average rating of 5.0 based on 2 reviews

Excellent family getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I truly enjoyed our stay at In Elks Way. We have six children and this is the first time my husband and I have ever truly felt like we had some space for ourselves on a vacation. Not only did you have a beautiful view of the mountains, the view inside was amazing as well. From spacious rooms to an incredible driveway to sled on not to mention the very cool fire places and big kitchen, it was like having the coziness of being at home. The house is close to all areas of recreation but far enough away where you felt the seclusion being on a ranch. The whole ranch staff was super helpful and friendly by drilling holes for ice fishing and a rink for ice skating. The house manager Brett was very helpful in aiding in all requests and coordinating our activities. All in all an incredible stay incredible house and incredible experience for our family of 8. Thanks again Mike And Debbie!!
