Why Lisa or Brian Wheatcraft chose South Central Colorado

This property is a passive-solar home. It was built on a site that was too irresistible to pass up. The views are stunning. It is secluded, yet close enough to town to not feel isolated. The peacefulness of this setting is overwhelming at times. Curl up with a good book, turn the music up and watch the sunset, or whatever it is that you enjoy.

Amazing Home and Experience

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I were supposed to come with another couple but they backed out last minute. Although we lost out on that experience, we had the most relaxing time at Sunset Ridge. The home is just incredible and so comfortable. We parked the car and didn't move for two full days. It felt really good to just relax. My cell didn't get coverage there, which i loved! But there was wifi and my girlfriends phone worked just fine if we need to reach the outside world. Waking up in the morning to the stunning views was just what we needed. I'd recommend this home to anyone. We have already spoken about returning in the future with family or friends. Thanks Lisa and Brian for being so responsive to all of our questions. We appreciate you.

Quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at Sunset Ridge for a family weekend getaway to Cripple Creek. The property is so beautiful. I could sit on the porch and look at the mountain views all day / night long. The driveway is just typical Colorado house steep. We had no problems on it with our truck. The house had everything we needed and I could see us staying here for a longer vacation next time. I could not believe how quiet it is yet so close to town. The owners were very responsive and easy to work with.

Perfect Place to Relax and Enjoy Nature

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful property to spend a week relaxing and enjoying the Rockies. Brian and Lisa are gracious hosts and made us feel very much at home. We were surprised by the many luxury touches including a vase of cut flowers from the garden sitting on the dining room table, the world's fluffiest towels and an outstanding kitchen.

Besides all of the features of the home itself the location is amazing. A picture perfect view of the mountains from inside the house or from the wrap around deck's many seating areas. And the sunsets truly do justice to the property's name.

Lots of wildlife to see including deer that dropped by most mornings. What surprised us the most is that, even though it is only a five minute drive into Cripple Creek, you could sit on the deck and see and hear only what nature provides. Very peaceful and private.

The kitchen and view were so nice that we chose to eat most of our meals at home. The grocery store in Cripple Creek is small but actually has pretty much anything you would ever need (and easy to get to once you realize that it's the bottom floor of the Ace Hardware store!). Lots of places to visit for day trips. If you are visiting during the Summer we highly recommend catching a show at the Butte Theatre. The quality of the cast and production were far better than we ever would have expected.

We give this our highest recommendation!
