About Matt & Diana

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Colorado Estate!

Plenty of room for 14 of my family member. The kitchen was very nice and the kids and adults enjoyed the indoor pool!

Looking forward to our next stay.

Lovely and ideal place for large graduation gatherings~ great accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

This house and yard are magnificent, spacious and wonderful for entertaining! Quiet area and gorgeous views in every bedroom. Large downstairs area with enclosed pool made it like a separate living area. The backyard is private~deer roamed it! Additionally, the owners are very accommodating to your needs and very pleasant to work with. Would definitely rent this home again as it met all our needs.

Great Board Retreat Location and Facility

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful Board retreat at this beautiful home. The facilities worked great for our meetings and there was more than sufficient room to save us on lodging in the area as well.

The place was well maintained and everything worked out well for us. We hope to be able to use the facility again in the future.

Incredible home base to celebrate our father's 80th birthday

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this house online are amazing, but it is not possible to capture the complete experience this house offers for the guests who stay here.

This home sits on top of a hill with gorgeous views of the valley's below as well as the mountains that surround the home. The trail in the back of the property offers a quick 15-20 glimpse of what the state of Colorado has to offer. On my hike on the property at dusk, I saw 7 deer. Each night and each morning, we saw more families of deer on the property.

Eleven of our family members flew from the east coast to celebrate our father's 80th birthday. There was more than enough space inside the house and outside on the gorgeous decks that surround the home.

Many of us had never been to Colorado. Monument, CO is a great location from which to "launch" a visit. Grocery stores and other stores are nearby as well as some hiking trails. If you are feeling more adventurous, Pike's Peak and Garden of the Gods and several other beautiful tourist spots are not far away. You will definitely need a car, but I loved the accessibility of so many beautiful spots in CO.

The owners were super responsive throughout our planning of the event as well as during our stay.

This place is top notch in every way. We are so grateful for the memories we created there.

Thank you!

Magnificent in all regard!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Diana and Matt,

Thank you for opening up your gorgeous home to us for our annual family vacation. The "house" truly was our home for one glorious week, and we had an amazing time, reveling in the beautifully decorated interior landscape of this mansion, with its fully equipped kitchen and outdoor barbecue grill area that permitted us the luxury of preparing wonderful meals, served on your fabulous array of beautiful dishes. The indoor pool and spa, tucked into the lower level of the house, added to the ambiance. Of course, who would not have appreciated the mule deer visits every morning along with magnificent sun rises. We very much appreciate the fact that you were totally accessible to us to meet our every need. Thank you again for your many kindnesses and for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Extraordinary Home

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Summit House for our son's wedding for a week, housing our family and all the groomsmen, as well as hosting the Rehearsal Dinner there. It was a perfect home base for a glorious week of wedding celebrations and provided opportunities for meaningful visiting that would not have been possible in a hotel. Spacious and beautifully appointed, it was also a gorgeous setting for our rehearsal dinner for 85. Kitchen is huge and spacioous, great room is gorgeous and cozy, beds are all super comfy, master bath alone is a luxurious oasis. Views from the house are all spectacular. Matt and Diana have thought of everything to give guests a splendid experience in their home. We recommend this home highly and hope to return someday to enjoy it.
