About William or Joyce Carpenter

Craglough House was built by Bill and Joyce Carpenter as their dream home. Joyce is a social worker in the Social Work Department at the University of South Florida. Bill is a professor and chairman of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. The house is modeled on Cragside, a Victorian mansion in Northern England. David Elfring, a renown archtect, captured the spirit of Cragside but with modern conveniences.

Why William or Joyce Carpenter chose Tabernash

Joyce and I fell in love with Colorado many years ago. We spent several years looking for the perfect spot. We found the current location in the early 1980s and then proceeded to buy all the land we could afford. By 1997, we had aquired 80 acres and then started house construction. Improving the road, bringing in electricity, telephone, and building the house were epic tasks. You will enjoy the products of the effort.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a lovely vacation/anniversary celebration we enjoyed in your wonderful home. Our entire family fell in love with Craglough and all were sad when it was their time to leave for the Denver airport. Keith and I stayed until Wednesday morning and truthfully, yours was the first home we have rented over the years that we didn't want to leave before our time was up. Everything was furnished and appointed beautifully, the kitchen was beyond compare and we couldn't have been more comfortable. So, thank you!



Krista was very helpful and we appreciated the fact that she was there if we needed anything. Turned out we didn't, but we knew she would help if needed.

Please feel free to use our comments. They just didn't say enough good about how comfortable we were. The design of your home was one of the best we've been in and we've been in many. How blessed you are to have this wonderful place to visit and eventually live in.

Beautiful view. Perfect having each bedroom with its own bathroom. Gorgeous views.

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of dishes, silverware and cookware. We had everything we needed. Our family of 10 easily sat at the dinner and kitchen tables for meals. We enjoyed the decks immensely and the scenery. Couldn't have asked for more.
