About the Property
Large Natural Log House, 3 floors, sleeps 6-10, Baths 2.5
The huge master bedroom suite has a log king-size bed and private living room with TV and DVD player. Snuggle into the silky high quality sheets and cozy comforters with lots of comfortable throw pillows. The private hot tub is just two steps out your bedroom door. It also has an exercise area with weights and state of the art treadmill. The couch in the master makes into a queen-bed for extra guests or children if needed.
The upstairs bedroom has a 100 year old brass bed with roll top desk and seating area with TV. It also has a day-bed and trundle-bed for extra guests or children. The balcony deck is perfect for secluded sunrise coffee overlooking the pastures and down valley views.
The vaulted ceiling living room has two comfortable seating areas, one for gathering the family together and watching movies or listning to the stereo, the other for a cozy evening around the glass fronted wood burning stove. Lots of split firewood for a roaring fire every night. The large ceiling fan 2 stories above will gently circulate the warm air on cool nights and the infloor heat feels good on bare feet on the coldest nights. The couch also makes into another queen-bed for additional guests.
The dinning rooms huge aspen log table and chairs easily seat a large family and the kitchen bar seats any overflow. Step out to the deck off the dinning room and enjoy the gas BBQ and seating area or even eat on the deck and take in the sunny southern views.
The fully equiped kitchen and walk-in pantry has coffee maker and grinder, toaster, microwave, pots and pans, pizza pan, tupperware, pitcheres, metal meat skewers and just about anything you could want. You also receive a welcome gift basket with local coffee and treats as well as a flyers of recomended activities.
Summer...Bring your own horses (or we can help arrange) and ride the trails of more than 1 million acres of the 3 most spectacular wilderness areas in the Rockies. Meditate in the midst of the hillside aspen grove at the back of the ranch or your private ridge top overlooking the property and serene valley below. Hike among the wild flowers and evergreens up the steep 11,000 ft mountain right in your back yard. Stillness speaks here... Relax and watch the longhorn calves romp in the lush pastures. Ease into the evening sunset in the large outdoor hot-tub, then enjoy the cool night before a cracking fire. (Many other outdoor activities and sports too numerous to list here).
Winter...Enjoy the greatest little ski town in Colorado. Soak away the days activities in the private hot tub then relax in the comfort of a roaring fire and walk around barefoot enjoying the in-floor heat. Cross-country ski on the ranch or ski & snowboard on the mountain. Snow-mobile, ice-fish or just enjoy the glistening blanket of crystalline snow covering and quieting the most beautiful high altitude valley in Colorado.

About the owner: I love this ranch and the area and really enjoy sharing the mountain experiance with those that visit. The rental home is a reflection of me (a little bit rustic and very comfortable).
Why the Owner Chose Almont, CO, USA:
This property is close enough to town (10 min.) to be very convenient but just far enough away to be peaceful. Sitting on the deck watching the calves romp or horses graze brings the heart rate down and keeps us grounded. My great granddad cowboy-ed just down the road from here when he was young (his picture is over the kitchen bar) and that history here just feels right.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Come play hard and rest easy. Enjoy a unique place to stay.
