Enjoy breath-taking views of the Sangre de Cristo range from the ranch house at A Painted View. This 160-acre property is on the floor of the Wet Mountain Valley, situated 3 miles west of Westcliffe. It's just another 3 miles west to the Rainbow Trail, a 100 miles of uninterrupted, multi-purpose traverse of the Sangres.
Corrals with cherished Nokota breed horses are just across the drive. Miniature Mediterranean donkeys out back. Horseback lessons are offered for $50/hour. Travelers or hunters with horses may inquire about boarding options that can be arranged separately with the ranch management.
Travelers with ATVs and/or horses have access to National Forest WITHOUT TRAILERING.
Your temporary home offers a very large, well-equipped and provisioned kitchen. The master suite is very large with separate bathroom, designed for weddings. Two large vanities with ample dressing room on both sides prove the sense of luxury. Guests may relax in a honeymoon-type tub or grab a quick and efficient shower. On the other end of the house are two ample bedrooms that share a full bathroom with a shower/tub. A fold-up, single bed is also available for a nominal per-stay charge.
The living room and the entire setting is luxuriously Western. Guests may feel like they are in the Texas Hill Country... until they look outside and enjoy a foreground of horses and donkeys grazing in several directions... and miniature pigs and chickens too! The backdrop to this peaceful, pastoral setting is an eye popping view of Hermit, Horn and other peaks of the Sangre de Cristos.
If you love horses, wildlife and mountains in a peaceful, quiet setting with casual, western style luxury, BOOK now. This is a new listing and will fill up fast.
Also checkout the A Painted View Ranch website for activities such as horse (or rather, people) training and Kids Kamp. Parents can book this house and take a break while the young buckaroos attend Kids Kamp and learn about horses in a safe, and soft, area environment.
