view to die for

  • 5 of 5

I loved this scenic cabin so much I rented it again a month later. Woke up every morning to wild mustangs watering and bathing in the lake 200 feet below. Chipmunks, hawks.

We recently stayed at this beautiful location. The wild horses are amazing. They come right onto the property and up to the lake. We caught a lot of fish. The porch is the true gem. We sat on it every morning and night. We saw so many birds and feed the hummingbirds. Watched the moon come up and shine on the water. It's so peaceful. We went to Taos for the day. If you truly want to unplug this is where you need to be.

Perfect peaceful place to relax and get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

Full length sliding glass doors wrap around the dining room and open to a huge back porch with a gas grill and plenty of space to lounge around soaking in the scenery. With the open kitchen I was able to enjoy the view while doing dishes and cooking in the most beautiful kitchen. The master bedroom also has a sliding glass door that opens up to back porch for late night stargazing at the billions of stars that are visible there. We watched wild horses come down to the lake every morning and most evenings. The panoramic views of Rockies were a most gorgeous sight to see reflecting on the lake in morning and evening sun. With as wonderful as the property is the owner is just as amazing, he went well out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our stay and got the most out of our time at his place. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we are already looking forward to coming back to this amazing spot.

Best view and total isolation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two kids stayed here for a few days and we were just amazed at the beauty that surrounded us. The cabin overlooks the lake with the Sangre de Cristo Mountains right behind. In the mornings, the heavy fog over the lake made it seem like we were in a movie. There are two houses on either side of the cabin, but faraway enough that we didn't hear any noise or see anyone. Without any noise of a city or highway nearby we felt like we had the beautiful area to ourselves. A great escape in a comfortable home.

Amazing Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not do this cabin justice! Though we only stayed one night, we both agreed it was one of the best accomodations we have experienced to date. Waking up to enjoy the sunrise with some of the wild mustangs near the house was so beautiful. Thank you for your hospitality and the memories!

Best view in Colorado

  • 4 of 5

Loved the place and location. The view was spectacular from the wrap around porch. Beds were clean and comfortable. The only constructive criticism would be a more thorough inspection/cleaning of kitchen before arrival. Could have just been the tenants that were there before us, but some of the dishes were put away dirty so we elected to wash everything before use. Not a deal breaker, we would definitely come back!

Owner's Response: Sorry for the plates but we can not check every time more than 100 between dishes, pans and glasses. There is a posted rule on the wall saying wash your dishes ( twice by the way ) and I do say it at least 3 times at the check in. So its a pity that the previous customers did not clearly listen/read and act upon it. We provide an excellent location but we can not babysit the clients we rely on the respect of people that sometime is not there and the next customer pays for it. I have 2 maids already going crazy with the cleaning I can not hire a soccer team to have checked every inch of the cabin. So please whoever read this review if you come here WASH PROPERLY YOUR DISHES.
