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.

It's an absolutely amazing and gorgeous setting. The pictures do not do it justice. Perfect for a relaxing weekend away from all of the busyness. The house is very clean, well furnished, and has a nice open layout with plenty of beds. Federico was a great host, gave accurate directions, and always replies immediately. Highly recommended.

Amazing view, very welcoming, just needed a few things cleaned.

  • 4 of 5

The owner, Federico, was very welcoming and gave us a great tour around the house. The view was definitely the best thing to wake up to. The was house was very stocked up on dishes and ingredients. There was only one thing that bothered me which was the blankets smelling like they haven't been washed since the last guests visit. It would have felt more comforting going to sleep with good smelling blankets. But other than that everything else was great and peaceful.

Owner's Response: And that is probably the reason why this group smoked Marijuana in the house leaving the windows completely open to try to cover the smell. By the way you don't wash the blankets every time you change the bed linen / sheets every time. For any host do not accept this group. It took me 4 hours to clean the house. The wood stove was a mess, towels and bed linen dirty of food they did not respect the trash recycling rules, they moved furniture against the wall posted rule and more than appalling no respect smoking in the house.

Absolutely amazing home and location, it's truly a hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was out of this world. The host was exceptional, he made us feel very comfortable and was very accommodating especially to our larger group (the home was a o spacious). The home is absolutely beautiful, my favorite part was the wrap around porch that looked over the lake. We felt right at home and was exactly what we wanted, a relaxing vacation away from the hustle and bustle of life. The kitchen was very well equipped with all necessary cooking essentials which was perfect for making lovely meals. We were happy to detach from electronics and enjoy the games the host left and the stunning views. We even took a dip in the lake! Couldn't be happier with the experience and will for sure visit again!

Owner's Response: Guys thanks a lot for leaving the house absolutely impeccable. Definitely one of the best group I ever had. When I entered I smiled and sat down instead of starting the house keeping . I am happy you took a bath in the lake. Come back anytime you want and you can do it being so closed. Thanks again! Federico
