About Katarina Sky
We are lovers of the outdoors...a forester from Switzerland who love our home and life in the Rocky Mountains of the Wild West. The great people and the amazing place here is something for everyone that we love to share with people from around the world. This summer we will also have our Tiny house up toward the back of the property, we may be up there and meet you, but you do have all the privacy you need and want on the property.
Katarina Sky purchased this House in 2017
Why Katarina Sky chose Westcliffe
The moment we saw this awesome slice of heaven, the forrest, the beauty and views, meadows, fireflies, our pond and stream ... and a 500,000 acre "backyard" called Sangre de Christo mountain range and San Isabel Forest. How can one resist that???
What makes this House unique
To have the feeling of a mountain retreat where you may not want to leave, you can go straight in the National Forrest to Rainbow trail through our back gate. In the morning just after sunrise the deer migrate back into the hills while you sip your coffee of sort on the porch. The elk , turkey and deer may come around, early in the morning and at dusk, or you like to sit and rad a book by the pond and listen to the the creek spilling over the rocks. Be in your mountain adventure while you can take outings to hot springs, breweries, mountain trails and peaks, white water rafting, hunting, fishing or go visit the wolf sanctuary to see those magnificent animals up close. Hop into the local town for a cold beer and good food., a open sky shakespeare performance or skiing and snowshoeing along the beautiful trails and near by ski area of Mammoth that is not very crowded.

Thank you for coming to stay at our place and leaving it so nice...please come back any time :)
A perfect place to find some seclusion and quiet. My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon and it was everything we wanted. Loved the property and surrounding land, especially the private pond and canoe. I'm sure we'll be staying here again.
Thank you again for taking such great care, we love sharing our place with people and when people do such great job caring for our place! Congratulations again on your journey ahead and so happy you could have your honeymoon at our place!
A slice of paradise!
This was our first time using VRBO and we couldn’t have been more pleased with the property and it’s owner, Katarina. The house was very well stocked which made it easy for us to prepare our own meals. The home is tucked away and secluded. The views are incredible and the creek that runs through the Iproperty brings a level of solitude and peace. Katarina was quick to respond to all questions which made me feel at ease. She has the home well stocked with brochures about the local area along with interesting books. It was so difficult to say goodbye but we will be back in 2020. If you’re on the fence about this property, don’t be. The property is on 40 acres and there are trails to walk. I can’t say enough about this slice of paradise in Westcliffe. Thank you, again, Katarina for making us welcome into your beautiful home!
Dear Barbara, thank you for coming, it is such a pleasure to share our place with others...it is to pretty to not to:) That is why down the road we want to turn it into a little retreat center down the road so people can relax and be in nature like that. Thank you for writing such a nice review and the time it takes to do that. Best wishes and if you come visit again perhaps we meet, sometimes I get to meet people as we try to spend as much time as possible up there!
A great place for relaxing and enjoying the cool mountain air the house is great with everything you need already furnished
Thank you for coming again and you all had a safe trip back, happy Trails and good rest of the year!
Katarina & Reto
Sangre de Cristo Retreat
Perfect place for a large family on a wedding weekend or as a base for two weeks in the mountains. Breathe the rarefied air, drink mountain spring water and enjoy the tranquility of the Wet River Valley.
This property is in a beautiful location with great views and lots of solitude. Katarina is a great host and very helpful. The house is stocked with everything you can think of to support a great stay and it's all organized and labeled clearly. Looking forward to coming back in the future.
Wet mountain valley has very unique attractions, like a a small observatory for the Dark Sky Community.
The Royal Gorge Train and amusement park
A Wolf rescue sanctuary and many attractions in the area like rafting,
