Guestbook comments from the owner

Was on-site at guest arrival. Guest mentioned three times in 10 minutes 'You have a beautiful home here!' Further emailed comments:

We truly enjoyed the Lodge of the Rockies. It was just what our family needed. We had not all been together for 3 years, and the lodge provided so much space. Each family unit had a space of their own, as well as shared room to hangout together. Thanks for having it so well stocked! We loved all your little signs with instructions. We really could not have asked for anything except that we should have brought a pack & play for our littlest grandson. At 4 months he is almost 20 pounds and too big for the bassinet you provide on site.

Blessings, and may many, many more people enjoy your beautiful home.

Wonderful family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful Colorado vacation with family. Six teen grandkids had so much fun even though it rained most of the week we visited. Many of the outdoor activities had to be changed because of the weather but the kids had plenty of things to do at the house. The kitchen has everything you might need for those who like to cook. We loved the location away from the crowd and the view is amazing. We enjoyed just relaxing and watching the sunset and the deer from the porch. We would definitely come back again for a family vacation.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This home was great for our girls getaway in Colorado. The house was clean and well maintained. The owner was a pleasure to speak with and was very helpful with information about the area. The road going into the home proved very challenging for our motorcycles and we had to use our truck for most of the outings. The area is absolutely beautiful and we enjoyed having our morning coffee on the back deck watching the local wildlife.

Wonderful house & location

  • 5 of 5

This large house is conveniently located close to many area adventures: hiking, mountain biking, dirt biking, fishing and the town of Buena Vista. The views are gorgeous and the surrounding area is very peaceful. The house is very comfortable and has everything you will need and more. The kitchen is very well stocked with pans, dishes, utensils, coffee makers, outdoor gas grill etc. The owner has thought of everything, including many suggestions on what to do in the area. He was super easy to communicate with and did everything to make our stay enjoyable. We enjoyed seeing some wildlife, hiking the "park" hill with 360 degree views of Ranch of the Rockies and also did several longer hikes in the mountains. Our party ranged in age from 6 to 50 and we all had something to do. I would highly recommend this as a vacation destination, comfortable house for anyone interested in the Buena Vista area. We will definitely rent this place again if in the area.

Our stay at the Rocky Mountain Lodge was wonderful. Having so much space helped our family.

  • 5 of 5

We truly appreciated all the amenities of the Lodge. Chris was a great host and happened to be present at our arrival. We wished for a pack and play or crib since our 4 month old was a tight squeeze for the cradle. Lots of games and activities. The beds were comfortable. Lots of linens and towels. Kitchen is well equipped. Because of dietary needs we cooked every meal and it was nice having the kitchen open to the living area. We enjoyed the downstairs fireplace several times.
