La Veta house description

This home is what makes Colorado spectacular. Thought has been given to every detail. From the rustic hardwood floors and beautifully designed kitchen, to the see-through fireplace, Bristlecone Ranch offers five-star luxuries in one of the area’s largest rental homes. It has an open floor plan with large living room; dining room and kitchen perfect for large gatherings yet cozy enough for just a few. Sit by the flames from a fireplace that soars 25 feet to the ceiling of the great room with incomparable mountain views. The master suite features large private bath with shower for 2 and a Jacuzzi tub. The 2nd bedroom also has an attached bathroom. Off the grand foyer and a few steps up are sleeping quarters for more guests in an over-sized bedroom with abundant windows. Views from the lower level of the home are equally picturesque. It features two more bedrooms, a game room with ping pong table, kitchen, living room, bath and fireplace.

This property offers something for everyone. The home is perfect for weddings. It has a large outdoor area ready for a wedding tent with breathtaking views of the valley and mountains. Golf courses are minutes away in La Veta and Walsenburg. The home has 600-acres of pastures, rolling hills, mountainside and plateau to serve as your private hunting paradise (call for details). Or you can explore the terrain on your ATV, enjoy an afternoon hike or have a romantic picnic overlooking the valley.
