Our family had an absolutely wonderful time in your cozy mountain cabin. We enjoyed playing in the snow and exploring around this magnificent cabin! We spent time skiing at Monarch and a day snowmobiling- so nice to be so close to everything! Your cabin and beautiful property provided a very memorable spring break for our family. Thank you! Austin, TX

Thank you for opening up your home! The Views are amazing. Loved all the special details you put in and outside your home. Gorgeous!! We drove out from Dallas, TX and decided to stay a few nights up here before heading down to Denver for Thanksgiving. We enjoyed being able to relax and enjoy the beauty all around us! The Ingells, Dallas, TX

What a wonderful place! It's a picture postcard. The snow surprised us, only brought tennies. We'll come again I'm sure! The lodge is extraordinary & the views are without compare. Thanks so much for having us. Mike & Glenda.

First off, this place is absolutely remarkable. Way better than any of my family could have imagined. The scenery was breathtaking and the details inside & outside the home make you feel a part of nature. The mine next door was never an issue and was a unique scene coming and going from the home. The 3 children absolutely had a blast while fishing and hiking on the property. The deer that visited on a morning were a joy and made the morning so beautiful for us. The deck was also very relaxing to everyone as we sat and enjoyed time with one another. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with my family. This is a vacation we will treasure always. The Melton's

From the picturesque view to the "over the top" amenities, this home is #1! We knew from the moment we drove up this would be a vacation to remember! Waking up w/a coffee on the deck & just taking the mt. view in was AMAZING!! Our children enjoyed fly fishing in the pond... if only you could have seen their faces as they proudly held a trout in their hands :). I love to cook & the kitchen was perfectly designed to accommodate our meal prep. The beds were very comfortable!! I don't think you could take a bad picture out here! Found myself mesmerized at times by the beauty you were able to share w/us! Wheat a PRIME LOCATION!! We even visited Great Sand Dunes Nat'l Park (2nd time) because it was only 1 1/2-2 hour drive, but staying home & relaxing was NOT HARD to do! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!
