How long has it been since you were able to look up at the stars and actually see the Milky Way? Our condo is away from town, in the high mountain valley south of Cuchara, and you won’t believe the views! Sunrise in the morning over the Spanish Peaks, sunsets in the evening over San Isabel National Forest, and the stars at night! Wildlife roam the mountains. You may see deer, elk, big horn sheep, black bear, mountain lions, foxes, bobcats, coyotes, and beavers. If relaxing isn’t your thing, then enjoy the fishing, hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, golf at Grandote Peaks…all yours!
Cuchara, just two miles away, is home to the famous Dog Bar. (Yes, people do take their dogs there!) And the excellent Timbers restaurant, as fine as any in the area.
And if that isn’t enough to entice you, take Highway 12 (Highway of Legends) south to Trinidad, past Monument and North lakes for unbelievable scenery. Or go north on the highway to La Veta, where you will find unique treasures from the artists who reside there. And the bakery in La Veta is the best!
Don’t forget the Great Sand Dunes Monument, about an hour away. And the Uptop Ghost Town on Old La Veta Pass gives you a glimpse into early Colorado. Also, San Luis is the oldest town in Colorado, and is just southwest of Cuchara.
We fell in love with this area when we visited a year ago, and found ourselves buying a condo. We love it, but aren’t totally retired yet so can’t be there full time. So we are sharing it with you and know that you will enjoy it! Our condo is an end unit, so it is very quiet and has views from `windows on three sides.
Spend summer evenings on the deck enjoying the cool air, or winter evenings inside by the fireplace just relaxing!
Three full baths ensure lots of privacy! Kitchen has been remodeled to include deep sink and full-size dishwasher. Wood flooring gives a beautiful warmth to our home. New refrigerator with icemaker is great!
One bedroom with twin beds, one bedroom with a queen bed. Pull-out sofa on the main floor. There are two very nice inflatable twin beds available (inflate immediately). Come enjoy!
We are Okies and fell in love with the Rockies. It is close enough to use we can drive it in one day - and escape the heat in the summer and enjoy the snow in the winter!
Barbara Smallwood purchased this condo in 2012
We love the coziness of the condo, the deck where we can enjoy coffee and the sunrise, or maybe a glass of wine and the sunset. The trees surround us, yet we can view the snow-capped mountains. This is an undiscovered area - we found it when my sister built a retirement home a few miles away.
The deck, the coziness of the condo, the wood walls - all have the feel of a cabin in the woods. The loft is above the dining/kitchen area, and the living area is then open, giving the condo a very spacious feeling.
We stayed at Starry, Starry Night for a weekend while in the area for my cousin's wedding. It was the perfect size for our small family: clean, comfy, and nicely decorated. It had everything we needed for a relaxing stay, and was convenient to town while feeling totally "away from it all."
Starry Starry Night is a very nice and peaceful place for a comfortable get away! Everything you need to feel at
home. Clean and comfy !
Great location, Great floor plan. Great solitude. Beautiful, restful, and peaceful.
Could have used a good going over with a caulk gun to keep the carpenter ants out. Also, could have had better lighting as some areas were rather dim with existing lights. We had to use our flashlight in the dining and living room areas. Would also recommend upgrading the DISH Network package as only one or two stations were worth watching. On a positive note, the whole house, including the kitchen was stocked better than we anticipated. Also, nice recent upgrades on the kitchen appliances, etc..
We would liked to have stayed one more day but we didn't have computer access to do so. It would have been great for the owner to have worked around that for us.
We had a wonderful stay at Starry starry night. The condo was beautiful and has obviously been well taken care of. The kitchen was fully stocked, the beds were comfortable, and Barbara was very helpful with any questions we had. We will definitely try to stay there again if we are in the area.
We had a very relaxing and peacful visit at Starry Starry Night. The owner was very helpful before our trip and during our visit with any questions we had. The condo was very comfortable and clean and set up to be a home away from home. We took our food from home and then just relaxed. We visited the Dog Bar and Grill more than once (great pizza), shopped the stores in Cuchara, visited Blue Lake, walked the nearby paths, saw lots of animals, went to the Great Sand Dunes (amazing part of God's creation) and just loved looking at the mountains. We hope to go back again soon.
Our condo is located in the San Isabel Forest at 9000 feet, a beautiful high plateau where one can enjoy the mountain views, hike, golf, shop the galleries in La Veta, or just enjoy the stars!
