Why Joyce and Michael Omohundro chose South Central Colorado

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. :-)

Relaxing and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Amazing location, quiet and secluded. Breathtaking views of the mountains. The house was designed beautifully and was an exceptional fit for our family of 5. It was nice to have good quality skillets and baking sheets to make meals. The beds are super comfortable and there is even a reading nook upstairs. The owners were most gracious hosts and we loved having them available to answer our questions and educate our kids on various plants that grow in their lovely garden with a koi pond and greenhouse. We cancelled our plans one day just so we could stay at the house and enjoy all it has to offer. We walked all around the property breathing in clean, pine scented air and had a picnic while watching deer in the forest. We would definitely stay there again and highly recommend this beautiful property for its quiet, secluded location and spectacular views. Joyce and Michael, thank you for your hospitality and letting us stay at your property.

Home away from home - everything except the chores!

  • 5 of 5

We had everything we needed and anything else we could think of. The hosts were friendly and offered any advice we asked about. Sitting on the back porch we had amazing views of the valleys and mountains - it was very relaxing. I was able to make some home made dinners and feed my family some healthy items to mix in with all the treats and dinners out. The kitchen was even more stocked with equipment and spices than mine. We took our time driving to and from our activities and were amazed at the wildlife along the roads and pathways. Our boys actually looked for animals instead of burying their selves in their phones. We photographed antelope, prairie dogs, squirrels, ground hogs, a Golden Eagle, Bluebirds and many other birds. We played games at night and spent more time as a family. Overall a wonderful time - Thank you Joyce and Michael - it was everything we imagined and then some.

Off the beaten Track, Comfort in ranch country

  • 4 of 5

This is a very well equipped and comfortable home. It accommodated two couples and two young children with ease. The views are tremendous. We were a little unlucky and saw very little wildlife. The opportunities for hiking are limited and local attractions require much driving. However well recommended as a pleasant retreat from urban living.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Unfortunately there is no way to transport our 80 acres and the mountain views to town! :-) (smile) We post on the site our distance from Canon City (about 50 to 55 minutes) and from white water rafting (25 to 30 minutes). We also remind our prospective guests of this when we approve their stay in case they didn't read that on the website so that they will be sure to understand our location before they book. We look forward to having you return. Thank you for the review and for staying with us.

Remote but beautiful and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Soaring Eagle was an extremely beautiful property. You overlook miles and miles and miles of lovely mountains. The sunrises and sunsets will truly create memories for you. When sitting on the back deck all you can hear is the chirping of the birds. It is however quite a drive to get out there. So if you're looking for convenience to town this is not the spot for you. It is about an hours drive to get to zip lining and white water rafting.

On the drive however we saw a bear, antelope, wild turkeys, deer, and we love the free range cattle just roaming all over.

Having Joyce and Michael stay on the property is not a big deal at all they are very helpful and will let you know exactly what you need to do. If you are looking for a slice of heaven this is the place to stay.

The house is extremely beautiful and very well-stocked. They have thought of everything. So I highly recommend this property if you're looking for peace and quiet. One last thing, sitting in the hot tub looking up at the stars was truly an amazing experience.

Remote, with exceptional views! Bring binoculars !!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for us! We really enjoyed being out in the country for the breathtaking views, star filled skies, and wandering animals. The place is remote, so will take a bit to get to and from town, but this was not a concern for us. Not sure why the other reviews are toned negative that the owners are present, and living below you. They were great people and an excellent, readily resource, for knowledge around the area. The homeowners' only concern was to make sure we were enjoying our stay, and we did! We really appreciated the fact that they were willing to share their home!

Canon City cabin review

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful. The cabin has everything needed for a great stay. The kitchen is very well stocked with quality pots, pans, dishes and many other items. The furniture is very comfortable, including the beds! The hot tub is quite nice. Temperature was perfect, the water was clean and everything worked well. We also saw a wide variety of wildlife including deer, turkey and elk. The owners were nice and helpful. Our stay was very enjoyable. We would most certainly rent this property again.
