Crestone House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + 2 baths with mountain and valley views (sleeps 6)

This tranquil 3BD/2BA home is nestled in the trees on several acres in the Sangre de Cristo mountains at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac that backs to a large open greenbelt. The magnificent views stretch from the forest to towering mountain peaks and out to the wide open San Luis Valley.

Our 2 story home has 2 bedrooms upstairs (1 with queen, 1 with 2 twin beds), and 1 bedroom downstairs (queen). There are 2 bathrooms (one on each level) and the upstairs bath has a steam shower. It is a peaceful, beautiful home, nicely decorated, with an open floor plan and many outdoor areas to enjoy.

Sip your morning coffee on the downstairs deck watching deer wander through your backyard. In the evening, enjoy a glass of wine from the covered balcony, watching the sun set over the valley and the San Juan mountains. At night step out on the upstairs deck and have your breath taken away as you gaze at an infinity of stars above the mountain peaks. Later, take a steam shower and relax in front of the fire after cooking dinner in the open-floor plan gourmet kitchen.

Our home has everything you need to provide a relaxing, rejuvenating retreat, or to simply be your comfortable base camp from which to venture into the great outdoors.

About The Owner

We love the mountains and getting away from a busy life to recharge in nature.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose South Central Colorado

The first time we each came to Crestone we were overwhelmed by the serenity and the beauty. It just felt right to have a retreat in this magnificent place.

What makes this house unique

The best thing is the quiet, the mountains stretching all around as far as the eye can see. It is wonderful to look out the window and see deer walking by. Sometimes I just want to sit in front of the fire watching the natural world go by, without leaving the house. It is always wonderful to arrive and difficult to leave.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great trip and really enjoyed your house.

It is really really spectacular.

Lovely house in a beautiful private location in Crestone with nice furnishings and appointments.

  • 5 of 5

We two women stayed in the house while attending a yearly meditation retreat in Crestone. One stayed in the big bedroom upstairs and the other in a smaller bedroom downstairs. We used the small bedroom upstairs as a meditation room. We cooked alot in the well appointed kitchen and enjoyed the outdoor decks and patios with nice furnishings. A lovely place. Also Michelle was right on top of it with communications and directions. Thank you Michelle!

Gorgeous and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at Michelle's place. Last February, my boyfriend and I had a romantic weekend away there. This past week, I stayed two nights with my kids (ages 20, 16, and 13) while we were on a road trip through central Colorado. Both times it could not have been more perfect. If I had a vacation home of my own, I'd want it to be just like Michelle's.

Hope to stay there again someday soon!

We had a wonderful and relaxing experience in Michelle's home. It was perfect for us (parents with two teens)--the location is beautiful, the layout of the house works well for families, and the view from each deck is superb (sunset from one, star gazing from the other). Directions to find the house were easy to follow and the house was very clean. I was pleased and surprised to find that the little market in town was still open on Sunday evening (around 7 pm) when I discovered I had forgotten a few food items that I wanted to have to make dinner. The kitchen has everything you need. We had a great stay.

Great Views

  • 5 of 5

The house is nestled among the pinyon trees making it feel secluded yet you can still see the gorgeous San Luis valley. House is very comfortable and the kitchen was great for cooking.

New Year's Week

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent our New Years week in Michelle's cabin, and it was such a wonderful experience. Her handyman, David, was extremely helpful in giving us directions and showing us around as well as the housekeeper, Bon. The Cabin itself was perfect for my family of 6. It's about 10 min from the town and 5 min away from the horse stables, which my kids loved, and the Monarch sky resort is about 1hr15min from the cabin. It's exactly the place we were lookin for. Ps. When I told my kids that next time we would get a place closer to the sky resort they said "no!" - they prefer Michelle's cabin!
