There is mountain hiking on the property and all around with fishing, hunting, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing nearby. This property does not just have views--it is in the 360 degree view. You are a part of the scenery. With 7.4 acres touching the Pike National Forest just go out the back door and hike. This property welcomes writers, artists, lovers, hikers, anglers, and all those who want a special retreat away from life's stresses and the hustle-bustle of city life. Better hurry, we are BOOKING UP FAST for the whole year.
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, deer, elk, wild turkeys, small mammals, fox, birds. 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.

Great views and perfect house.
This is the second time we have stayed here. We Love how high up on Mt. Bailey you are. The little town of Bailey in s great place to get breakfast and lunch. Only an hour to Denver! Jaron is very helpful if you need him
Great place to relax and unwind.
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!
