Overview

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.

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, 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.

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 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.

Perfect Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Private location, amazing views, hot tub, ping pong/pool table in garage -- this place has it all!

Stayed here with a group of 7, had a great time and didn't have any issues. The home owner seemed to have though of everything already, the house really was impressive. The house was very well organized and came with instructions, which was a nice touch. Master bathroom is amazing. The views are incredible. There are some cool places to hike around just outside of the cabin, but with the views from the deck and hot tub it's almost better to just stay at the house! There are some places to eat around 10 minutes from the house (right after you get back on the highway), and the closest grocery store is just 30 minutes away.

I highly recommend this location and will definitely consider it for future trips! Jaron was great top work with and I didn't have any issues or complaints

Great View...House was SUPER comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

This home had everything we wanted. We found ourselves torn between enjoying the home and getting out to see all the sites in the area. The views of the mountain seemed to change by the hour. We spent considerable time reading, relaxing and enjoying the hot tub. Sunny southern exposure made 60 degree days seem like 80. Inside it was very comfortable open layout that lead to keeping everyone connected even if we were doing different things. We had everything we needed to make some fantastic meals... well equipped kitchen.

The home wasn't right on top of attractions but you can't expect it to be when you are in the mountains. We hiked the new state park...very nice. Also did Pikes Peak (about 2 hour drive). Many other sites taken in. Mad Jacks Brewery was a highlight for us. Loved the brew and the staff was fun to interact with. Check it out.

We'd stay here again in a heart beat....

FANTASTIC

  • 5 of 5

WOW. Great house. Great property. Everything was just as described and more. The views are phenomenal. The house is warm, comfortable, has everything anyone could ever need for a 5 star plus stay. Great location--close to everything yet a million miles away at the edge of the wilderness. Quiet, peaceful. Saw one or two people on the road in 4 days!! I would come again in a heartbeat. Great for a weekend getaway or to stay for a month. Thanks for a great time.
