Property description

**** PLEASE READ THIS TO UNDERSTAND PRICING!!!!!! VRBO DOES NOT HAVE A WAY FOR OWNERS TO SHOW A RANGE OF PRICES THIS HOUSE IS PRICED ACCORDING TO ROOMS USED AND NUMBER OF PEOPLE. THE RATE OF $145.00 IS THE STARTING RATE FOR DOUBLE OCCUPANCY USING ONE BEDROOM. THE PRICE GOES UP FROM THERE. SEE 'RATE' SECTION TO FULLY UNDERSTAND THE COST. We designed and built this house with the intention of using sustainable building practices as well as creating a luxury home. We found you can have both. Graceful curves and custom touches will delight and inspire you. The house is at once grand and homey. The kitchen is enormous with ample room to have many hands help with producing meals. The bedrooms have thick wool carpets and hand tinted wall colors. The beds fitted with high quality linens, plump pillows and down comforters. Crestone Creek flows through the land cutting between hundred year old Cottonwoods. The view is astounding...massive peaks silent before you from almost anyplace you stand. If you would like, we have an amazing chef just next door who will delight you with his mile high chocolate cake and fried chicken or any other type of diet. The quaint town of Crestone is a short walk away. We are flexible with our accommodations so please don't hesitate to write us with any specifics i.e. from a couple's get away to a family reunion.

Keywords: Located in the high mountains of the Sangra de Cristo range
Near hot springs and The Great Sand Dune National Park, this custom strawbale house features plenty of room and comfort in a park like setting. Crestone Creek runs through the property, and the interior of the house will enchant you with it's quality and lush surroundings.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We are a family of 6. We now reside in Boulder, Colorado. Our children are teenagers and we love to travel and spend lots of family time together. With a busy schedule of our children's activities we do not get to Crestone as much as we would like. Please go to our house and enjoy it as that makes us happy!

Why the Owner Chose Crestone:
We did not intend to have the house as a rental but as we needed to relocate to Boulder. We built it as a great family house when our children were young.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The peace and quiet is amazing as well as the quality or the air and water. Everything is so fresh and lovely. We love hiking and going to the hot springs and the sand dunes.
