  • Home away from home

    "It was the perfect condo for my 4 day conference at Copper. Right in the middle of it all, I was only a couple minutes walk from any of my sessions. Great accommodations!"

  • What a great cabin!

    "My husband and I with 2 children stayed at the cabin for 7 days and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We made day trips outside of South Fork after hiking several trails there. We loved staying in the cozy, well equipped cabin with lovely western decor. Our needs had been anticipated and the immaculate home readied in advance of our visit. We loved being able to cook instead of eat out though enjoyed the Whistle Pig barbecue, Cottonwood Cove steaks and Rainbow grocery for everything else. The visitor's center at South Fork was fantastic. We drove to Pagosa Springs, Gunnison and Durango for attractions including hot springs and river floating, boat ride on the Gunnison river from Morrow's point and the Durango to Siverton train ride with informative bus ride back. We prayed the Stations of the Cross at the shrine in San Luis and sandboarded at Great Sand Dunes! We plan to return to South Fork and stay at the cabin again as soon as possible and will rent a jeep to enjoy more of the South Fork trails including Wheeler Geologic site and Summitville. We've never enjoyed a vacation more in large part due to fantastic accommodations and host. Thanks very much!"

  • Great stay!

    "This was our first time in Breckenridge. The condo is at a great location, short walk to Peak 9 base and the village shops. The condo is clean, cozy and the kitchen is stocked. We had a great stay and hope to come back again. Thanks Anne!"

  • Just what we were looking for....

    "I'm not sure exactly how we stumbled across the Tucan in Bailey, but am glad we did. Having never been to Colorado, we wanted to see some picturesque site, possible fish , see some concerts at Red Rocks Amphitheater and travel to Breckenridge & Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs. This location was central all of them and the views (we stayed off the interstates) were breathtaking. The deck of the cottage had awesome views and offered a tranquil setting. We really appreciated the suggestions offered by the hosts, Judith and Richard. The cottage was clean and cozy. Plenty of windows and a lot of privacy that offered us a retreat from our daily hustle & bustle. Thanks again!"

Colorado Travel Tips

The Rocky Mountain State is a wonderful place to visit if you love being outdoors. Whether you’re an avid mountain climber or just love to take in the scenery, this state offers something for everyone. Here are some tips for what to see and do on your Colorado vacation:

Denver

The capital of Colorado is located at the foot of the Rocky Mountains on the High Plains. Most people don’t realize that Denver has milder weather than other mountainous cities - the average temperature is in the 30s in the winter and averages in the 90s about 36 days a year in the summer. Additionally, Denver surprisingly gets an average of 300 days of sunshine per year, rivaling sunny Los Angeles!

While in the Mile High City, make sure to go shopping and dine in Larimer Square, the historic district established in 1858 that once represented the entire parameters of the city. Get in touch with your creative side at the Denver Art Museum or take a slow stroll in the 23-acre Denver Botanic Gardens, just east of downtown, which houses 15,000 plant species from around the world and includes a Japanese garden, tropical conservatory and sculptures and fountains throughout the space.

Catch a Colorado Rockies game at Coors Field, take a tour and tasting at Coors Brewery and visit Washington Park, which features bike and boat rentals, walking and jogging paths, tennis courts, lakes and playgrounds for the kids. The kids will also love Lakeside Amusement Park and Elitch Gardens. Serious hikers should consider ascending 14,000-foot Mount Evans for the views. If there’s a show during your Denver travels, Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater is a must-visit - the concert venue is carved into the reddish-brown cliffs, and it’s located only 15 miles southwest of the city.

Boulder

Boulder is just about a 45-minute drive northwest of Denver. It’s known for its culinary scene, healthy citizens and natural beauty.

The Flatirons are a must-see symbol of Boulder. They are flat walls of rock near Green Mountain, scaled by many adventurous climbers. Instead of this intense jaunt, you can hike the trails on Green Mountain, but they’re too difficult for kids. You can also head to the park at the base for a picnic and beautiful photo op. Chautauqua Park is a local favorite and it provides some of the best vistas in the area. It’s located just south of the city on the edge of Green Mountain. Chautauqua has family-friendly trails and plenty of picnic spots.

Art-lovers should check out the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art and the very unique Leanin’ Tree Museum of Western Art - it features a private collection of Western-themed paintings and sculptures and sit right next to the Celestial Seasonings Tea Factory, where you can visit for a free tour and tasting. Boulder is a great place for star-gazing - head to the Fiske Planetarium or the University of Colorado at Boulder for some excellent celestial sightings. Don’t miss Pearl Street Mall for awesome outdoor boutique shopping!

Colorado Springs

Colorado Springs, another major Colorado city, is located less than an hour and a half drive south of Denver. The biggest attractions in Colorado Springs are its natural wonders: Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak and Seven Falls. Garden of the Gods is a collection of red sandstone pillars that were formed over millennia and jut high above the surrounding landscape in peculiar formations. The park in front of the rocks has several different paths, many of them suitable for young children and seniors, so you can see the rocks from all angles. Take a hike on Pikes Peak or a scenic but slightly frightening drive on Pikes Peak Highway. The hikes to Seven Falls in Cheyenne Canyon are easy enough for young kids, and you’ll be treated with a spectacular view of the 181-foot series of seven waterfalls, cascading into each other in a zig-zag formation.

Other Must-Visits

Colorado is one of the best places for skiing in the U.S. In the late fall, winter and early spring, people head to popular sites like Vail, Aspen, Breckenridge, Telluride, Steamboat Springs, Copper Mountain and Crested Butte for some excellent skiing and snowboarding options. In the off-season, many of these places offer rides on the ski lifts for scenic mountain views, as well as alpine slides for a bit of summer adventure.

Another must-see is the Mesa Verde National Park - a historical treasure located in Cortez near Durango. It features 600 cliff dwellings that were occupied by the Ancestral Pueblo people for more than 700 years between 600 and 1300 A.D. The most famous is Cliff Palace, which has 150 rooms, 75 open areas and 21 kiva rooms. You really can’t miss coming here!

Also nearby, just east of Durango, is Chimney Rock National Monument, which encompasses nearly 5,000 acres in the San Juan National Forest. Ancestral Pueblos lived here as well, and you can pass ancient remnants of their settlement on your hike!

Finally, don’t miss a visit to Rocky Mountain National Park near charming Estes Park - it’s a national treasure that occupies nearly 266,000 acres of pristine wilderness.
