With 7.4 acres touching the Pike National Forest just go out the back door and view the beauty of the Colorado Rockies.

Retreat: If you want to get away from Denver for a long weekend, or stay for a month as you write a novel, Big Rock Mountain House welcomes you to a brand new, modern, gorgeous mountain home that is casual, comfortable and custom designed to be a contemporary cabin experience. You can hike on the property for thirty minutes to the National Forest and beyond and not see another human. You will be surrounded by nature, tall pines, firs, wild large and small animals. You can hear the sound of water rushing from the rapids of the North Fork of the South Platte River far below you, or the wind rustling through the forest. Go to the bottom of the property, look up, and see that you are literally on a BIG ROCK. Sit in the 8 person spa under the stars. Take a bath in the 6 foot 7 jet spa for two located in the master bath, look out the window and have a glass of wine. Sit on the balcony and look at the 180 degree mountain views. Rock on the back patio in huge log rockers or relax on a lounger.
Hikers and Anglers Welcome: The house overlooks The Lost Creek Wilderness. Hike the property--on one side, climb down the rock outcrop. On the other side, climb through a dense alpine forest to the plateau below overlooking the river valley and continue descending to the river. There are many other places to hike. Hike to South Twin Cone Peaks, Platte Peak, Payne Benchmark. Take a drive and go to Kenosha Pass, Windy Peak, The Castle, The Taryall Mountains, Puma Peak, or Mount Evans Wilderness to name a few. Anglers can fish in the river below but access is from Bailey and must be on public land. Or you can go to Pine, Shawnee, Boxwood Gulch, Blue River, Long Meadow, Chatfield Reservoir or many other fishing holes near and far. For details, check with The Knotty Pine in Bailey.

About Jaron Winston
I have always loved Colorado. We use to drive for 16 hours when I was in college just to spend a long weekend in the mountains. When my kids were growing up, we would all go and everyone loved the change of scenery from the hills of Central Texas to the majestic Rockies. When I told my family 'I don't know why I bought land and built a house in Colorado', my daughter reminded me 'Dad, you love Colorado, we always went there as kids'. It made perfect sense to her. I do love Colorado and so will you.
Jaron Winston purchased this House in 2009
Why Jaron Winston chose Bailey
Incredible. Overlooking the Lost Creek Wilderness with 180 degree unobstructed views of National Forest. Yet, only 1 hour from the big city and 1 hour and 20 minutes from downhill skiing. You can't find beauty like this just anywhere.

Beautiful home with all the amenities you need!
Beautiful home and a peaceful retreat from the busy day to day life. The views were amazing and we loved seeing all of the wildlife so close.
We had a beautiful time here in the mountains. The property is absolutely breathtaking with all the amenities he would ever need. When you open up the back door you’re literally in the mountains. Heaven on earth.
Breathtaking scenery. comfortable home in the mountains!
I was in Bailey for my Sister's wedding. The home was beautiful and very comfortable. It had all of the amenities we needed, and the scenery was breathtaking. We saw some wildlife, and sat on the porch and just enjoyed the silence. The hot tub is amazing too! We highly recommend this property, and hope to visit again.
Gorgeous home, amazing views, attentive owner. Every thing you need is there!
We stayed one week and had a party of 5 and 2/3 visitors in town for our nieces' wedding by Staunton State Park.
The home is truly amazing and the views are incredible. It is well maintained, well thought out and has everything you need to feel "at home" and comfortable. It truly exceeded our expectations.
We drove 1.5 hours both ways to Lake Dillon to meet others for a 4 hour pontoon cruise of the lake. Make sure to take the route through FairPlay, Alma and over the Hoosier Pass. Incredible views less traffic and easier drive than the route through Evergreen and I-70.
The road to Castle Rock and Lake Wellington is well worth the scenery.
The bailey restaurants, brewery are quaint and much better than expected.
The drive to conifer is easy when you need groceries.
We used the hot tub daily and the sunsets from there are gorgeous.
There is a lot to do around the area, but you may just want to stay at the house and enjoy the peace and epic views from the patio, hot tub, upper level deck or any room in the house!
WOW. Another great review. We are glad you had a great stay and hope you come again.
Amazing house and location!
Everything was as described, easy, simple and peacefully quiet. Great getaway with awesome amenities!
Fantastic View and Great House
We had absolutely fabulous stay in this house. The house is perfect if you are looking for a quiet stay in the mountain and enjoy the scenery. The house had everything minus the food for our stay. The owner and the cleaning crew thought of almost everything needed for our stay. The design and layout of the house was perfect for a comfortable stay. We would definitely consider coming back if we are back in the area again. The owner was good to deal with and very responsive in the communication.
Thanks for coming and we are glad you had a great stay. Comfortable with great views, for sure!
