                        Stayed here over the fourth of July weekend, and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. It was spotlessly clean upon arrival, and was exactly as advertised. The cottage sits partway up the wall of a valley that provides great views, and somehow feels very isolated despite the other homes in the area. There are several roads close by that take you to breathtaking views (Pine Valley Road, in particular, is incredible). The cottage has the perfect amount of amenities, and a deck that I could sit on all day, smelling that wonderful mountain air, watching the birds, and gazing at the nearby peaks. Again, just a wonderful, wonderful location. Sealing the deal was the owner of the cottage. Judith is very friendly, and equally happy providing tips for things to do and places to go as she is stepping back and giving you the feeling that you're all alone in your private hideaway. Her house is close by if you need something, but completely out of sight from the deck and windows of the house if you don't. I can't stress enough how private this place feels, just a fantastic place to getaway for a weekend. I'll definitely be looking for an excuse to come back!

                        After a long day of travel, getting in after dark, what awaited us was the warmth of homemade bread and friendly hellos from Judith and RIchard from their deck above Tucan. In the morning, we had a blanket of snow and a huge variety of birds at the feeder. They were the most gracious hosts we have ever encountered at a VRBO! The cottage is decorated so warmly and is very modern. Direct TV and WiFi helped us keep up with happenings back in our state and provided an opportunity to even watch our home college football game. Judith and Richard helped us find great fishing and hiking spots and we appreciated the time we had hanging out with them during the visit. Bailey is so centrally located and just hours or minutes away from many hiking and historical spots. We had a very wonderful time during our 4 short days and were sad to say goodbye to them and the area. Tucan Cottage is a treasure and we hope to be back in 2014 for sure!

                        Owner response: We are so lucky to have the 'bestest' guests and new friends for life. Our Fall has been a little different this year with earlier cold and even a bit of snow. The Aspen gold is always glorious. What fun to experience the excitement of our guests. Thank you and we hope to see you again next year.

                        Judith & her husband were very accommodating. My brother and I had a short amount of time to stay, but we wanted to spend time in nearby Staunton State Park (beautiful hiking/mountain-biking trails/climbing, etc). They recommended a peaceful morning bike-ride through their quiet residential neighborhood. The house was immaculate, beautifully-decorated, with updated fixtures. My regret is that we weren't able to stay longer but since I live in the Front Range, I'll be sure to visit again.

                        Although we visited Colorado during the Great Floods of 2013 at the Tucan guest cottage, our stay there was very home-like and comfortable. The views of the surrounding Mountains were breath-taking. It was everthing my wife and I hoped it would be ! The VRBO advertisement was exactely as described. The cottage was extremely clean (everthing in he cottage was like new !) Judith and Richard were exceptional as hosts during our stay, giving us options for activities to take in during our week stay. The driveway at first might seem intimidating, but it is not the beast it looks to be! When the rains came, we knew we had a safe and welcoming place to return to at night. We would highly recommend Tucan for a Colorado vacation !

                        I MADE MY RESERVATION AT THE TUCAN BECAUSE I WANTED TO SPEND TIME EXPLORING THE AREA AROUND BAILEY,AND ALSO BE CLOSE TO MY SON AND GRAND KIDS IN DENVER. THE TUCAN EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS. EVERYTHING IN THIS COZY CABIN IS NEW AND CLEAN. THE OWNERS WERE FRIENDLY AND VERY HELPFUL, AND MADE ME FEEL AT HOME. THE TWO WEEKS THAT I SPENT HERE WERE NOT ONLY MEMORABLE, BUT I ACHIEVED MY DREAM OF FINDING A HOUSE TO BUY IN THE FOOTHILLS OF DENVER. THANKS TO JUDITH AND RICHARD, MY TIME SPENT THERE WAS OUTSTANDING. YOU WON'T BE DISSAPOINTED IF YOU DECIDE TO STAY AT THE TUCAN.

                        Owner response: Thank you for your kind words, Ed. Our guests become our friends and now you'll also be a neighbor! Some of our guests love the mountains enough to want to live here part time too, so Richard has extended his real estate license to Colorado also. You can stay in the comfort of The Tucan and perhaps he can be helpful.

                        Our stay at Tucan Cottage was great. Judith and Richard were able to accommodate our last minute stay in a moments notice. The cottage was spotless and had everything we needed for our 2 day stay! I would not hesitate recommending this cottage to anybody. Rated a 10/10 in our book! Thanks for your wonderful hospitality. Hope to see you next year, Zach Keith

                        We want to thank our wonderful host Judith & Richard. Your cottage is just great and the pictures tell all. You should be very proud of yourself for the remodel of the cottage. We had such a lovely 10 day stay, we didn't want to leave. You reccomended so many places to see. I think we took most of them in. We put a lot of miles on the truck. The colors of the trees were spectaclar. Looks like we picked the right time to visit. The weather could of not been any nicer during our stay. The wild life around the cottage was so much fun to watch. I really loved having the deer eat right out of my hand.( I thought she was going to come join us on the deck for the cookout) We had good times with the ATV and didn't have to go far from the cottage for a beautiful ride. Played some golf at a few of the nice courses near by. At the end of our busy day, we came back to the cottage and relaxed. We slepted like babies in the most comfortable bed ever. We really enjoyed stopping at the local winery, where Richard was performing. He has such a lovely voice. Again, thanks for the wonderful stay. We have already told many friends about booking. Hope to see you next year.

                        Beutiful retreat off the beat'en path! Lots of wildlife from bear to humming birds. Quite, we caught several nice trout nearby lakes and streams, finished a couple of books, and enjoyed sleeping in the cool mountain air, 50-60 degrees at night, days were generally in the 70's. We've already planned for next year's visit.

"Tucantu" misses you too! The fact that our guests are planning re-visits is such a compliment to us. Fall is in the air now. October is also beautiful in a different way because of the Aspens 'changing colors' throughout the valley. Thank you and come back soon. Judith and Richard

                        We loved staying here at Tucan! Our daytime routine of exploring the Rockies and surrounding area was made complete by coming "home" to our retreat in the mountains. we had everything we needed, sleeping was so relaxing with the fresh mountain air and our hosts, made sure we had everything at hand. Everything was so clean and well maintained, all the photos came to life for us beautifully!The towns of Bailey and Conifer are so close for picking up groceries or going out for a bite and shopping. There is so much exploring to do...and the sight of birds, deer and fox was a real treat for us. We would come back tomorrow without hesitation!! THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING !!!

Our visitors become our friends and we love to have family and friends visit often. Note the new pictures in our photos section of Tucantoo and the new babies that visit us daily now. We just loved following your vacation blog and are amazed at the over 3000 miles you traveled on motorcycles to come visit Colorado and stay with us. PLEASE COME BACK SOON!
