Wonderful property in a spectacular location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a work retreat and were able to sleep twelve people very comfortably. The house is beautiful and very well-maintained, with everything we needed for a great stay! The 360 degree views are spectacular and both the property owner and caretaker were great to work with. Everyone on our team was delighted with the property.

Awesome house with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this property. The house is very well stocked and accessorized. 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!

Absolutely amazing location and home!

  • 5 of 5

If you don't reserve this house then you and your family will be missing out big time. 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

GREAT FAMILY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. We were celebrating our son's wedding which was in Maroon Bells. The home was breathtaking. 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!
