We had great views thru the telescope of the herd of elk across the mountain. The pictures of the property online do not do the views justice. This is definitely some of the prettiest country in the world! Fantastic place!

Everything was amazing and the property manager (Frank) had everything in order and in perfect shape. The views from this home are amazing and the location is extremely peaceful. Awesome place to stay and enjoy beautiful Colorado at it's finest! Rod Henningsen

The views amazing. This home had every amenity you could possibly need. The caretaker Frank was extremely helpful with local spots. It was hard for all of us to leave. Would love to see in the winter!
