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.

Excellent stay!!! Really enjoyed!!

  • 4 of 5

This place is superb in terms on location, cleanliness, space etc..

Few things to note though:

1. It's not a 4BR, it's actually 3BR

2. Owner is extremely strict about checkout time of 10 AM, she entered the home at exactly 10 with few others, even though we requested for half an hour additional to move out...

Owner's Response: Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Sorry that you were confused by the 4th bedroom. The listing indicates that the 4th bedroom has a futon which converts to a queen bed, and the pictures accurately portray that. Many of our guests (as well as our own family) use that room either for a single adult or for a couple of children. Our property manager is the one who does the cleaning. There are times when it is important for her to get in there right at check-out time. Particularly if there are other guests arriving that day, she needs that time to get the house ready. If you think that you may need extra time, feel free to contact her directly or contact me, and we can let you know if an early check in or late check out is possible. If you have not made those arrangements in advance, we do operate on the stated times. We will likely not commit to an adjustment in those times until the day or two before, though, since we do get numerous last minute bookings. Hope to see you again.

The stay went well

  • 5 of 5

It is a good size house and in good shape and everything went well. The turn off to the house was a bit hard to find at night (couldn't see a house number), but if you locate it on google maps before-hand and use a GPS it should be easy enough. During high winds the gutter made a loud humming noise, maybe it is fixed by now. There is a lake nearby that you can walk to. It's a nice quiet street.

Truly Blessed

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to LaVeta to visit my dad for Christmas and was completely blessed to have found such an amazing place to stay. This home was situated perfectly to take in the beauty of Colorado. We had 8 total in our group and there was an abundance of space for everyone. It had everything we needed to enjoy our week in LaVeta. The kitchen was well equipped to entertain a large group of family. The added downstairs game area and den with a large screen TV allowed part of the bunch to enjoy the football game without being disturbed by the kitchen commotion. The beds were very comfortable and supplied with plenty of linens. Everything about this home is perfect. I call it a home because it was very welcoming and we felt at home. I will say that I have never stayed at a place that was concerned about left belongings until now! Jennifer went above and beyond to make sure my granddaughter was reunited with her pony. She texted me as soon as she found it in the bed and got it in the mail as soon as she could. Very sweet of her to do this! We will defiantly rent this home again in the future. Thank you for providing such a wonderful place to stay. Judi you have a wonderful family managing your property and we were so blessed to have stayed in your home.

Yes, the view IS to die for!

  • 5 of 5

The property is everything that is promised. Plenty of room easily accommodates one or more families for a great getaway to the mountains. The kitchen is very modern and fully equipped.

Loved watching the sunrise with the fire in the fireplace, and a cup of hot coffee - and enjoyed the deer foraging for fresh grass that evening. Its a private location but just on the edge of town. A little tricky getting in the first time after dark but trust the GPS. Charming area - and we recommend you take the scenic drive to Cuchara. Take some groceries in with you - major store is in Walsenburg. All in all - a winner. Great owner and smooth arrangements.

Amazing views and very peaceful location.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful set up home with amazing views. Very peaceful area. We enjoyed watching the deer walk around the property. Enough room for three couples plus extra room for more. Looking forward to our next trip out and plan to stay an extra few days. Thank you so much.
