A Colorado mountain dream come true. The 360 degree views from this stunning home on 120 private acres is a rolling sea of pristine mountain tops by day and the shimmer of milky way by night. Take in the majestic scenery from the hot tub or on the wrap-around decks where you can look down on soaring hawks and eagles. Enjoy all Colorado has to offer, hiking, biking, rafting/kayaking, fishing, zip-lining, horseback riding, birding and more from this exquisite property located on the old Ute Indian trail connecting modern-day Canon City to the hot springs of Salida.
Crown of the Rockies has been recently updated with splendid southwestern art and furnishings. This is a home for vacationers who appreciate fine touches and are looking for a comfortable place to experience an exhilarating Colorado mountain vacation or just get away from it all. The rewards are many in terms of sheer beauty, serenity and comfort.
The main level features a large open living space with walls of windows to the panoramic views, access to the upper level decks, a modern kitchen and a master suite with a King Size Bed. The bright lower level has 3 bedrooms (2 queen, 1 twin) and a large rec room with one futon sofa, a pool table and hand-made bar and access to the lower-level decks. There are two full baths, one on each floor. A total of 7 can sleep comfortably. A gas grill is on the lower-level covered deck. There is no air conditioning at Crown of the Rockies but the night air is comfortable in summer.
This private property has a 1/2 mile driveway with easy access off the paved county road.. Your party of 2 to 7 can relax on the spacious exterior decks, the light filled open floor plan upstairs, or downstairs at the hand-made bar with a game of pool or ping pong.
5.2 miles to the Cotopaxi store and Arkansas River with easy access to all the river valley has to offer: the vibrant town of Salida (23m) with its riverside cafes, galleries and shops, The Royal Gorge(25m.), the picturesque town of Westcliffe (30 minutes), Monarch Mountain Ski Area (50 min), antique center of CO (Florence-55 min), all in the middle of the views you dream about.
In winter, the private driveway is plowed but can have snow pack; all wheel or 4 wheel drive is recommended.

We look forward to hearing from you and sharing this beautiful home!
Stayed here briefly both before renovation and afterwards. It's been upscaled to museum quality reflecting the Southwest. Everything needed for a comfortable stay. Beautiful views and exciting to look out and see eagles and hawks soar beneath me. Having travelled widely the house sits upon the land in a Japanese manner whereas the front reminds me of a Swiss chalet. Having observed many sunsets in my life this home on the spine of the Rockies has created a new appreciation of sunrises and offered me a glimpse into eternity. Highly recommended.

Beautiful house and amazing views. Tons of fun and our dog had a great time too ! July 2011
Your house was the perfect venue for our family reunion. From here we zip-lined, whitewater rafted in Brown's canyon, mountain-biked from St Elmo's ghost town, relaxed in hot springs, hiked, visiting (successfully) the haunted Silver Cliff cemetery and ate an incredible meal at Sangrita restaurant in Westcliffe. Your house is beautiful. The hot tub was a good addition under the bright stars at night. The satellite and wi-fi made us feel right at home. Thank you again!!!! Houston Tx
