The Owner purchased this chateau / country house in 2013

Why The Owner chose Canon City

We looked for 2 years before purchasing Soaring Eagle. We wanted beautiful scenery, serenity (no road noise - just the wind in the trees). We wanted to see wildlife: deer, elk, antelope, fox, bobcat, etc. It has wonderful water - its own well so we are able to have a lovely garden in front of our house.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The home has southern exposures and views from almost every room. The interior is paneled and has a wood smell when you walk in. I love the flow of the house. From the deck we have a plethora of hummingbirds and other local birds in the summer. They look like flying jewels. :-)

Pictures don't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about our time at Soaring Eagle. The pictures just scratch the surface of how beautiful the property is. It is far enough away from everything and close enough for day trips to many attractions.

Will definitely stay again when we come back to Colorado.

Beautiful views at this mountain property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this beautiful mountain property. The house is very comfortable, and we got great use out of the hot tub. There is a lot to explore around the property itself and it is not too far from the Royal Gorge and Canon City. It is about an hour drive from most activities, though. The best thing is the views!!! It was great to get away. We had a wonderful experience and great family time. It had a remote feel, but Internet and satellite TV were helpful for some downtime.

Beautiful house and property!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing, it's remote and absolutely gorgeous! Amenities were great and Michael and Joyce were there to meet us and supplied with anything we needed! There was a teepee on the property as well and the hot tub was amazing! It was hard to leave to go do activities as the beauty makes you want to stay forever! I did not read how far the location was off the main road, so be aware it's about 15 min off the highway on a dirt road, but totally worth it! I would recommend it for a retreat/chilling out trip and get your groceries/fill up on gas on way up as there is nothing around for miles!! Total seclusion = relaxation!
