New Mountain House-Platte River Valley & Lost Creek Wilderness

Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

At the end of a 2 mile gravel mountain road, custom built, full view of mountains and river valley, private. This 2010 house has nothing behind it except mountains and forest. Hike down the property to the Pike National Forest and to the North Fork of the South Platte River below. 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.

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 from the property. Or hike nearby South Twin Cone Peaks, Platte Peak, Payne Benchmark. Take short drives and go to Kenosha Pass, Windy Peak, The Castle, The Tarryall Mountains, Puma Peak, or Mount Evans Wilderness to name a few. Anglers can fish in the river below or go to Boxwood Gulch, Blue River, Long Meadow, Chatfield Reservoir or many other fishing holes near and far.


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 glassware outside. The local newspaper "The Flume" has an online summer guide called "Summer in the Park 2010". Good information about summer in the area.

Why The Owner chose South Central

This is a great property because it is only 1 hour from Denver but in the mountains and very private. You overlook the National Forest. You are in a wilderness area but close to many activities.

What makes this house unique

You have peace and quiet. You have fresh air, smell pine, see and hear many birds. You can hike out the back door and be in nature. The house is new, modern and has every comfort yet give a cabin experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A fantastic vacation. The house is amazing. A perfect spot to watch the sunrise, a lightning/hail storm move across the mountains, a magical rainbow, the full moon rise, fox, deer, birds, chipmunks but no mountain lion! We loved the hottub, hikes, kitchen, the dance party. We love the house! From guest book comment.

Gorgeous home, amazing views, attentive owner. Every thing you need is there!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Fantastic View and Great House

  • 5 of 5

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.

Absolutely Phenomenal Home!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect way to spend time with the family in the cool crisp humidity free mountains of Colorado in a beautiful home. Amazing views abound with tons of hiking, exploring and all within a quick drive to good food and brews of Bailey, CO.

My wife to be, son and his fiancé as well as my daughter had a great time coming together and enjoying this home. It was all within a reasonable travel to other activities such as rafting in Buena Vista, Shopping in Breckenridge, horseback riding and fishing. Couldn't ask for more.

My daughter whom learned while there, may have rheumatoid arthritis which would explain her pain issues of late, didn't get out too much but truly enjoyed the views of the mountains from the upstairs bedroom while Skyping with her boyfriend back home.

We had to ask for and all felt lucky enough to receive one more day.

We'll be back! Thank you so much!
