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.

Serene, peaceful and private.

  • 4 of 5

We found this home very accommodating. The open vistas beyond the lakeview were exciting morning and night as we spent much time on the deck talking, drinking coffee, watching storms, animals and taking in the beautiful scenes of nature and sky in front of us. There were many walks to be had and lake access is easy. The house best serves a maximum of eight adults unless there are married couples or adults that do not mind sharing a bed. The owner was very honest in her expectations and the rules were few and easy to follow. More comfortable and accommodating beds in the downstairs area and we would have easily rated this a five star stay. We very much enjoyed our stay and would return again. Thank you much for the cleanliness and ease of access.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your time in LaVeta. The views off the deck are my favorite, too. I would definitely agree that the house would not accommodate 10 adults all that well. I do try to communicate directly with guests any time the number of adult guests causes me to wonder if they will be comfortable. For our family, and the majority of our guests, the configuration of beds works well since we usually have a number of young adults and children. The listing and the pictures accurately portray the current situation. Look forward to having you return.

Just perfect...

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about this beautiful home. The property, the home, the area, all was perfect. Marcia, the owner was very kind, thoughtful, and personable.

We tried many restaurants, white water rafting, and a hot air balloon excursion.

Great vacation getaway for us Mainers...thanks again Marcia, for an A plus experience.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a good time. If you found a good place for whitewater rafting, let me know so that I have that info for other guests. Judi

Great LaVeta Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The pics don't do this La Veta property justice! Clean, quite, spacious, airy, well stocked and with multiple spots to enjoy the great view - I will certainly book mark this for future stays!

PS - Charlies market in town can be depended upon for most everything.

Spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

The Lakeview home is clean and comfortable with incredible views of the water and mountains. It sits on a large lot with absolute privacy. Easy to get to on a well maintained  dirt road. Like many homes in the area there is no air conditioning but on those hot days  the down stairs stays cool and the deck had a refreshing breeze in the afternoon. Judi is a great communicator and always responded right away to my messages. On our next trip to Colorado we plan on staying here again.
