About the Property
3BR, 2 1/2 Baths, sleeps 8, spa tub, hot tub , 7.4 acres - unobstructed views
CAUTION: THIS LISTING IS NOT LEGITIMATELY ON CRAIGSLIST
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.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Must be at least 25 years old to rent or have a responsible party willing to assume financial responsibility. A copy of a drivers license or passport or other government ID is needed.
This is a NON-SMOKING property without exception. No open fires on the property. No glass or bottles (beer or wine bottles) or any other breakable glasswear outside. Polycarbonate or non-breakable containers are provided. No foodstuff should be left outside unattended at any time including trash so as not to attract wild animals. No guns, hunting, pellets, paint balls or shooting anything on the property. No golfing on the property.
If you are caught smoking you will forfeit your deposit and any remaining days at the property without refund and you will be asked to leave. Any open fires, doing anything that may set a fire, or shooting of firearms on or near the property will lead to the local sheriff being called and you may be arrested, fined, asked to leave without refund or all of the above. No exceptions.
There is a local newspaper 'The Flume' and a summer and winter guide called 'Summer or Winter in the Park'. This is good information about attractions in the area. Google it online.

About the owner: 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.
Why the Owner Chose Bailey, CO, USA:
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.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
7.4 acres of mountain property in a natural wilderness area with all the amenities of a modern home. Clean air, quiet, nature all around.
