About Amy

The previous owner designed and built the three cottages in 2001--architecturally, it was designed based on what he thought Thomas Jefferson may have built--the scale is much smaller however—he believed Thomas Jefferson was the greatest architect for visual effect in the history of our country. Valley Glen is a truly unique place to stay in the Colorado mountains!

Amy purchased this Cottage in 2001

Why Amy chose Teller County

The mountains offer serenity and in our busy lifestyles, we all need that relaxation. This location combines a blend of a remote, romantic oasis with access to outdoor activities, historic locations, and the entertainment of gambling, shopping, and dining.

What makes this Cottage unique

the Big Horn Sheep hang around frequently along with deer, elk, and my favorite is the awesome little Hummingbirds that stay around from May through Sept. AND if you are lucky (?) you may see a bear!

                                                                Perfectly nestled in the valley between two mountains with a creek right outside your door.

                                                                Starr S.

                                                                The views out the study are breathtaking on clear days. I visited with weather in the mid 30's to upper 40's, and still enjoyed walks across the property. It was nicely away from the business of town, yet within driving distance to groceries, gas, or other necessities (about 15 minutes). My goal was to "get away from it all" and truly have some down time, and to come back home rejuvenated. This helped me achieve exactly that.

                                                                We had a wonderful, relaxing weekend away !

                                                                Keith G.

                                                                Beautiful cottage with everything we needed for the weekend. Amy was very sweet and had cookies waiting for us. I really appreciated the breakfast food that was provided.

                                                                We will be coming back!!!!
