About Barbara Hoyt

We live in Boulder, CO and are raising 3 children. We enjoy skiing, hiking, biking, camping and all things outdoors.

Barbara Hoyt purchased this house in 1998

Why Barbara Hoyt chose Homestead Hills

We built this home after the birth of our second child as a safe place to enjoy the outdoors, yet have a warm place to return with our small children. We have many happy memories of jumping off the deck into snow, enjoying hot chocolate by the fire, building forts in the woods and mountain biking out our back door. The combination of aspen, pine and spruce on the property was appealing - not knowing how much value the diversity would have when the majority of the pine were consumed by Pine Beetle.

What makes this house unique

With 3 acres to explore, but only minutes from stores and resorts the property is the perfect place to remove yourself from the hustle of life without feeling isolated. Our home is a place to use and enjoy - its functionality was built with families in mind and comfort is stressed over price tag.

Amazing Views!

  • 4 of 5

The views when waking up are awesome! House is in a very secluded area surrounded by many trees. We rented this home during January and wished we would have rented a 4-wheel drive vehicle. We had to push our car's up to the driveway several times since it was only a 2-wheel drive. Everyone had a challenging time attempting to get signal on their phones or internet connection. However, the home was very spacious and kept us warm. Which is what we wanted and needed.

Quaint Mountain Retreat

  • 4 of 5

This home was perfect for our ski trip to Winter Park. Our group found the house to be plenty big enough for all 18 members who came. There’s nothing fancy about this house but all amenities for a stay are accounted for and that was perfect for what we were looking for. The price tag is perfect for this house. The view from the house is also very beautiful, which is a nice added bonus. We did not require much contact with the house owner, but the instructions given to our group through VRBO and posted at the house were very understandable. Overall a great experience!

Nice and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Being in the forest was beautiful. We saw a moose the first day and a family of moose the last day. The home is very spacious and comfortable. Everything we needed was there except wifi lol. Some of us had to turn in work and we couldn't give our location unless we were outside in a hotspot. But it all worked out. Very nice. Thank you.

Overall the fishing wasn't that great in some of the smaller lakes around the area. But coming home to the cabin made our vacation very enjoyable!

Amazing views and spacious!!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the spaciousness of the cabin and the view was astonishing. It was nice to have a fire going at night to warm up beside. Enjoyed being able to step inside and remove our boots in the entryways. The only thing that would of been handy was knowing what spices, condiments, and cooking oil or sprays were available before coming. Thank you for the enjoyable stay and relaxing atmosphere.
