About the property

Relax Away From Everyone And Everything!

If you are ready for a break from cities and people, this is the place!! With over 2000 acres of serenity, we offer you a quiet destination with peaceful existence. Our nearest neighbor is 1/2 mile away. We live in a gated community where only 6 people live on over 15 thousand acres! Everyone has the same reaction when they first get here and see the views!! It's breathtaking and Serene!

No light poles or electric lines. No noise which can be strange at first.

We are 45 minutes from 3 towns. The Arkansas River is 20 minutes away and great for fly fishing! River rafting, horseback riding, fly fishing, hot springs and helicopter rides are 25 minutes away! we are at 8000 ft. right in between Salida, Westcliffe, and Canon City. Florence is just outside Canon City and is perfect if you enjoy searching for antiques. Breckenridge is a 1.5 hour drive. There are many day trips to interesting towns including Leadville, Manitou Springs, Colorado City and Buena Vista.

This is a shared home where the owners are home a lot of the time! They are friendly, fun and respectful to your privacy as little or much as you prefer!

There is plenty of hiking right outside our front door! Polite pets are always welcome!

We offer bicycles for an enjoyable diversion.

If flying in from out of state, the Colorado Springs airport is a mere 1.5 hour drive to our home. Denver international is just under three hours drive to our home.

As Your Hosts, we are artists who make steel and tile sculptures and functional items for both in and outdoors.

We are on the road at art festivals many times during the year. The house is sometimes there just for visiting guests! When we are home, master bedroom which is for owners only is upstairs. You as our guest have a downstairs private bedroom, separate guest bathroom and use of living room, tv room and kitchen. there is a bar b q and table & bench set outside. Sit outside and view the 14,000 peaks with a beer or glass of wine.Hiking on the property is footsteps away! You will have the best of both worlds with privacy when you want it, and interaction with us as much or little as you want.

For anything you might want, just ask. remember, when we are home, we do work in our shop during the days!

We now offer paid classes in tile and steel design. if you are interested in turning your stay into a learning experience, we have a lot of creative energy to offer! we teach how to make tiles, tile setting, welding and plasma cutting.Let us know in advance for the optimum artistic experience!

Beautiful scenery, hummingbirds on patio, views of Sangre Mountains, great hiking, walking, beautiful sky and stars. This was our perfect rest and refresh get away. Loved how they shared not only their home, but themselves and their amazing metal art business. This was our first bedroom only rental, would definitely stay with them again. Easy to find, easy to book, go discover this beautiful mountain and home.
