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 La Veta

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.

Everything was great

  • 5 of 5

We had a really large group, 6 adults and 7 kids. The house was perfect and fit all of us. Everything was stocked and available, the view was awesome. Seeing the deer everyday was awesome. We are from Texas and this was our first year to do anything like this, just picked a house and location on the map, couldn't have asked for more as far as the house and location.

Owner's Response: So glad that you enjoyed your stay. We have had wonderful family gatherings at LaVeta Lakeview. For our future guests - our stated capacity is 10. Although the house could potentially accommodate more, we have chosen that number in order to insure that all of our guests (as well as our wonderful local managers) have a positive experience. Anything outside of the stated capacity needs to be discussed prior to reserving the property, will be reviewed based on the specific number of guests, and will likely involve additional fees to account for the extra cleaning time that is involved.

Impressive cabin in country

  • 5 of 5

Recently my family of 10 spent a week end at the Lakeview cabin/house. Accommodated us well. The large room on upper floor offered an open design: kitchen, dining area and living room with lots of windows. Small balcony extended from this room and overlooked a lake and surrounding mts.. Furniture was mostly comfortable. Appreciated lots of sunlight in the great room. Kitchen was well- equipped with lots of cupboards, counter space, dishes, dishwasher and refrigerator with working icemaker. First rental we've had that had a table with leaves that seated all 10 of us. We enjoyed the deer that came up to the patio every morning. Lower level was enjoyed by my grandchildren so had their own space when desired. Only negative was the futon in sml. bedroom...uncomfortable for sleeping. Would like to stay here again!

Owner's Response: Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to seeing you again. Interesting that you mention the futon - That is something that my children sleep on all the time - it is their choice even when other rooms are available. However, in about 5 days, it will no longer be in LaVeta. It will be replaced by a twin/twin bunk bed. Hopefully that will continue to fit your needs. See you soon.

Beautiful, private

  • 5 of 5

We rented the top half, as there were only two of us. The entire place was beautiful. There were wild deer running around the house and the balcony has a gorgeous view.
