Indoors, light a fire and make your gourmet meal in the kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances.

Perfect Home!

  • 5 of 5

We were more than happy with our stay here. Everything we needed was available for us. The house was clean and comfortable. It is in a beautiful setting. We had more than enough room for two families and four children in total. It is far enough from town to feel remote yet close enough for a short drive to dinner. The hiking trail above the house is great even for young children. I hope to have the opportunity to stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.

Great property and atmosphere!

  • 5 of 5

The property is absolutely stunning and the amenities are amazing! There was a slight hiccup in the beginning, which couldn't have been handled any better than it was! Overall, we loved the house and experience and would most certainly stay here again!

near perfect cabin for large or small groups.

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was great. The floor plan is open and perfect for large groups to hang out. The cabin is stocked with pretty much everything you need from towels and robes for the awesome hot tub to seasonings for cooking. My only complaint is the beds could use some upgrading and maybe put some thicker curtains on in the bedroom so people can sleep in while on vacation. Other than that it was pretty much perfect!

Our family had a great time! The owners were so, so accommodating for our large group! We had a great time skiing, riding the train, visiting the Four Corners monument, and Mesa Verde National Park. Thanks again!!

Perfect for a large family

  • 5 of 5

2 families of 4 slept more than comfortably. Kids loved the Foosball table and family board games. Owners live onsite were amazing and very accommodating. They even had a Christmas tree set up. Great touch, especially being we went there for the Polar Bear Express. Kids already want to come back. Thanks for a great stay.
