Convenient and serene

This beautiful home is just as advertised and very convenient to many destinations. Our motorcycle group could not have been more pleased!

Thank you for the wonderful accommodations.

Perfect Place, no complaints from anyone.

  • 5 of 5

This is an awesome property, a great gathering place for our family. Lots of room outside of the grand kids to run around and play, for the adults to relax. the pond, grass and the house were terrific and space for all, no crowding. A very quiet area away from it all, yet close to town made it very convenient for what ever desires we may have had. The owners did a great job of setting it up with everything we may have needed, wanting for nothing. If our travels bring us back that direction, this will be the place we will stay, it may become a family tradition.

Beautiful setting. Very clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Brought my adult children and teenage grandchildren along with one infant. They all loved it! We had preplanned outings each day and they all wish we had one more day to stay and just enjoy the property. We had taken the teenagers river rafting and they all preferred paddling around the pond in the paddle boat at the property over the river rafting trip. There were plenty of nice TV's that never got turned on. We played pool, chess, and just visited out on the cozy lawn chairs. We all loved our stay!

Family Adventurers

  • 5 of 5

We were searching for a quiet, relaxing place to gather our family over the holidays...and found it! The first few days we spent were with two of our adult children. We enjoyed the billiard table and the warm, cozy family room with fireplace. Audio and television systems were awesome and user friendly. The kitchen was roomy and fully equipped. Another family of five arrived later in the week. We had plenty of rooms and beds for nine people (three generations). We cooked all meals together and enjoyed the wildlife table and glass ware. Loved being snowed in by 18" of snow! We were able to access property with four wheel drive at all times, but didn't want to leave. After the teenaged grandchildren arrived, we spent time in the pastures and around the huge pond playing in the snow (picture snow forts and snowball fights) under the impossibly blue sky. I could not help but wake early to watch the beautiful sunrise each morning. We had to stop many card and board games to take in the view of storms moving over the Sleeping Ute Mountain and incredible sunsets from the huge windows in the living and dining rooms. Although the property in closely situated to a main highway, it felt very rural and private. The teenagers went snow boarding for a reasonable price at Hesperus, which was only a half hour drive. Both Telluride and Purgatory are near but are pricier. We have all spent time at Mesa Verde in the past so didn't take it in on this trip, but its probably only a half hour drive. The owners of this beautiful ranch are hunting guides and the property has a lodge feel that was perfect for this area with its' western heritage. There were many places in the home to find privacy for reading and napping. There were card and board games always in progress and were never in the way of cooking. The home was tastefully decorated for Christmas, which was a huge plus. The bathrooms were well stocked with toiletries and the laundry room had everything necessary to keep up with laundry for nine. The beds and bedding were top notch. We loved staying at this property and would love to spend time here at any time of year. Looking forward to taking a vacation that would include boating on McPhee Reservoir (which is five minutes away) during the warm summer months. Thank you Josh and Gina for the perfect holiday retreat!
