About Judi Best

Steve and Judi (and their 4 children) live in the Denver area. Steve is a retired military officer, and Judi is a church musician.

Judi Best purchased this house in 2013

Why Judi Best chose Southeast Colorado

Judi visited LaVeta in 2012, and fell in love with the area. A few months later, we began looking for a location for Steve's WWII vet dad to relocate. We found the VA facility in Walsenburg. We bought our home in La Veta as a wonderful place to get away from everything with the added benefit of getting to spend time with Steve's dad.

Absolutely Fantastic VRBO Home

  • 5 of 5

Stunning panoramic views in an absolutely beautifully maintained vacation home. Every possible amenity in the kitchen, extremely clean and very relaxing. Deer in the front and back yard, beautiful weather - all in all I'd give this place a 10! Thank you so much!!

So pleasant!

  • 5 of 5

The house is very nice, clean, well maintained and nicely appointed. It was super fun to get up in the morning and see deer grazing right outside the window!

wonderful weekend with family

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I met up with my sister and her husband for the long Labor Day weekend. Since our parents passed we are starting a tradition of traveling together 2 times per year. In May we stayed in Walsenburg and checked out the surrounding areas and properties. We liked what we saw and started the rental process for Labor day. We were not disappointed. The house was comfortable and spacious enough for 4 adults and two small dogs to have plenty of room to spread out. We enjoyed walking each morning and cooked one evening and enjoyed the wonderful patio area. The large hawk with a nest in the tree and the deer in the morning were an added bonus.

The only two negatives - 1 the dishwasher was not working, no biggie, we came home with dishpan hands. and 2 we do not subscribe to Direct TV or have any experience with Roku so the TV was not usable to us. Better instructions and passwords would have been appreciated. Otherwise the home is lovely and we will consider it again if we go back to the SE Colorado area. Wonderful, Clean, Comfortable home.

Owner's Response: So glad that you enjoyed your week-end. The LaVeta area is perfect for making wonderful memories with family. We so appreciated the note you left us letting us know about the dishwasher. We checked it out immediately and found that the problem was in the latch. A latch kit was ordered that day, and repaired as soon as it came in. One disadvantage in LaVeta is that sometimes things like that have to be ordered via mail so do take a little longer than if you could drive for 5 minutes to Home Depot :-) The TV also reflects the location. There is a DVD player available (with a few DVD's and the ability to get lots more by going to the library) and then has access to Netflix, Hulu, and Sling. Those passwords are already set and automatically available. Other possibilities show up on the Roku device, if a guest happens to have those accounts but we do not have those available. We will add a note to our notebook to clarify that not all possibilities can be accessed. Thanks for that feedback. Hope to see you again when your travels bring you back to the area.

This is our 2nd time to stay at La Veta Lakeview & once again, we loved it! Honestly, we didn't want to leave... it is easily accessible to so many things to do! House was very clean, accomodating & has everything you could possibly need. The deer greeting us each morning was such a treat! Thanks again Judi!!!
