About Matt Gould
I want to personally thank you for booking our Mountain House. I sustained a spine injury while serving in the Air Force from 2001-2006 and my physical limitations make it difficult to find work that I can do. Your patronage is vital in helping us make ends meet. My family and I are very grateful for your support.

Snow for Christmas!
We had no idea what kind of weather to expect and thought we might have to venture out to play in the snow. Wrong! We had so much fun exploring the property with our 4 teenagers. The cabin stayed nice and warm and was just amazing. Plenty of room and definitely high quality. We felt very spoiled and didn't want to leave.
Awesome rental. If you’re looking for a great secluded get away this is the place! Matt does a great job of communicating and checks in regularly. House has everything you need and some awesome views! Highly recommend!!!
Our family enjoyed our stay here and hope to come back sometime.
Beautiful, peaceful home with an incredible view
Our family of four stayed at in this beautiful home for 6 nights. I was most pleasantly surprised by how remote yet accessible the rental is. Our family’s favorite aspect was the view of the mountains. We could clearly see the amazing moon rise and fall above the mountains and the incredible sun sets. We enjoyed the walk down to the county road seeing mule deer, in the horses front the ranch nearby, and the grazing cows.
While staying in Westcliffe, we had pizza at Tony’s pizza and sandwiches at Elevation Meat market. We did most of our cooking and baking at the house and purchased all our meat at Elevation (which needs a 5 star review as well - all local and natural meat) and groceries at Lowe’s. We drove North of Westcliffe and enjoyed it the canons and river views in addition to the Mountain View just outside of Silver Cliff. We also went into Pueblo, enjoyed the drive with the mountian view but couldn’t wait to get back to Bear Basin’s peaceful oasis.
The house was absolutely beautiful, spotless, and had everything needed for the entire week. We were thrilled they had a gas grill with plenty of propane to cook all of our amazing meat. The kitchen was stocked with every herb and spice needed. The pots, pans, utensils, and flatware were of great quality and quantity. I was pleasantly surprised that they even had a waffle iron! Additionally, they were stocked with trash bags, paper towel, dish soap, hand soap, toilet paper, laundry soap, and all the toiletries needed.
The house had great circulation with windows on every side to cool off during the warmer days. Even at its warmest of 92 degrees in town the house never got above 76 - and that was with the oven on. The bedrooms were spacious and very comfortable. The downstairs room with the double bed has a great view of the mountains as does the room upstairs with the two double beds. The room in the back with the king bed was quiet and the coolest with beautiful wood furniture.
Outside we used the hammocks, the table and chairs on the patio, chairs on the front porch and deck, and took hundreds of pictures of the mountains.
I cannot recommend to rent from Matt enough! An outstanding home with incredible attention to detail, with great communication and willingness to answer any and all questions to help you enjoy your stay!
