About the property

'Worth every penny!' 'Can't wait to return!' 'LOVE IT HERE!'

FOUR MASTER SUITES makes this the perfect property for a couples getaway or a corporate retreat!

Our 6000sft home is set up for entertaining and hosting guests and we would like to invite you to join us! Our huge great room is enhanced with unobstructed views of Colorado's two highest mountain peaks; Mount Elbert and Mount Massive dominate the view to the west and we are surrounded by many additional '14-ers'. After dark the only lights you will see are the stars.

This is truly a mountain get-away to rival any you have experienced or will experience in the future! Our gourmet kitchen is fully set up for cooking your favorite meals complete with every possible tool, and our stunning dining table comfortably seats eight in front of the fireplace. The granite island bar seats four and is perfect for keeping in touch while cooking.

Our guests experience the mountains in style! Relish being outdoors, and relax in the evenings on the wrap-around porches, enjoy the movie theater or play cards or games at the game table. We have so much to keep you occupied you won't miss our hot tub which is available in the summer only, its just too much of a danger in the winter - sorry!.

We prefer to rent to couples or singles. We have named our suites after the best of the best as we feel 'The Lostberry Ranch' is the best of the best in Colorado and a gem in this historic mountain mining town!

The Royal Suite, one of the favorites in the home, has a king cherry sleigh bed, a view of the sunsets, and a private bath with huge soaking tub.

The Executive Suite is next door to the Royal on the upper level of the home. This room has a king size custom iron bed designed and built by the homeowner and has a Sleep-number mattress. The bath has no tub - shower only. A twin trundle bed is also available in this room if you have a well-behaved child with you or you have two singles that want to share a room but not a bed.

On the lower level of the home we have the Admiral's suite with a private entrance and patio, another king bed, and a kitchenette with convection microwave oven and full-size refrigerator. No tub but the privacy of this room more than makes up for it!

Next door to the Admiral's suite is our only room with two beds. We generally reserve this room for children over 10 who will share the bathroom with their parents in the Admiral's suite but it will work for the single adults as well (the only draw back is this room shares it's bath across the 'playroom' with the rest of the house and has a claw-foot tub only - no shower).

Our 5th bedroom is the Presidential Suite - the "actual Master suite" of the home. Another king size sleep number bed, an exotic shower with 16 heads, a private sitting room and deck, and a claw-foot princess tub make this room special.

All bedrooms also have large screen TVs with satellite and many with DVD players if you aren't interested in the movie playing in the 7-seat theater complete with real movie theater seating.

Enjoy snowmobiling trips in the winter right from our yard, 6 world-class ski resorts are within an easily accessible one-hour drive, and in summer we are close to tons of outdoor recreation activities including biking, hiking, gold-panning, North America's highest golf course, fishing, and ATV trails.

We promote 'The Lostberry Ranch' as the Ritz-Carlton of Leadville and welcome you to enjoy it as much as we enjoy hosting you! Ask about the name of the home~ we love sharing our stories and look forward to welcoming you to our family!

About The Owner

Carrie and Barry designed and built 'The Lostberry Ranch' from a drawing on a napkin! We love hosting and enjoy spending time with our guests who want a true 'home' feeling but are also fine giving the space over to you to enjoy on your own. We are avid snowmobilers and car collectors, enjoy cooking and playing games, think movies are a great way to spend an afternoon, and love traveling the world more than anything!

The Owner purchased this estate in 2004

Why The Owner chose South Central

We love Leadville as a beautiful little town with amazing views and a close-to-perfect climate for us. We have tons of space and enjoy meeting people so we decided what better way to do what we love than to invite you to join us! We are most happy acting as hosts and rent the whole house while we leave town in our motorhome...We also sometimes rent out just a room or two in the Bed and Breakfast style so If you want something a little more budget friendly, or want just one room or: this is your vacation and we are here to make your stay the best it can be whether that is enjoying it with you or keeping out of your hair....

We think Leadville is an awesome vacation spot for outdoor recreationalists year round but we also know that sometimes sitting by the fire and playing a game of cards is the best thing in the world so we welcome you to experience the best of life for yourself!

What makes this estate unique

We cater to adult couples. We have various choices of rooms but all have access to 'the playroom' with the pool table and pinball machine. Our hot tub has an amazing view as do all the decks and patios (open summer only). We have two fireplaces in the public portion of the home and the Presidential suite has it's own fireplace as well. Our 7-seat theatre has authentic movie theatre seats and comes complete with 113' screen and it's own snack bar. We offer catered meals as well as picnics, and in the winter we love showing you around the area on snowmobiles that we take directly from the house to the hills!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family LOVED this property! The public rooms are very comfortable and well laid out and the sleeping accommodations are simply divine! Next year we would love to stay a whole month!

Ideal vacation house with spectacular mountain views

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 had a fabulous time staying in this beautiful, large home. It had just the right amount of space for togetherness and separation (when needed). Having the use of everything in the kitchen was a huge benefit for us, truly home away from home. The location was perfect for daily trips to Ski Cooper for skiing and tubing. Carrie was most gracious and responsive in helping us resolve the few issues we had settling in, learning to use some of the remotes, getting the garage door repaired quickly when it didn't work, etc. The movie theater and pool table provided hours of evening entertainment. The nearby town of Leadville was quaint and has a nice museum of mining. If we're back in the area , we will definitely stay here again!

Great Place to stay. A mansion vacation home. A outstanding view.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at the Lostberry Ranch. Carrie (the owner) was great to work with. The View of the Rocky Mountains in the Great Room, Kitchen and bedrooms was the most impressive. Our three adult families had very comfortable King Beds and the Kids loved the Pool Table and Movie Room. This mansion vacation home is Great. We're coming back.

Wow--What an amazing residence this is! We didn't want for anything, and the views were just majestic. Home theatre, hot tub, pool table and much, much more. Such a fun and relaxing place to stay. Highly recommend!

Gorgeous Home near Leadville District

  • 5 of 5

The residence was gorgeous, fully equipped with every amenity and more. An entire week+ of an atmosphere and accommodations which exceeded my expectations! Hot tub (bonus), Home Theater, remarkably spacious common rooms, and not withstanding the excellent attention given by the owners are just a few details that are exemplary. An impromptu and surprising effort that I must mention: a custom bike rack was built just for our stay! Accommodating a Cycling Team allowed us to organize and prepare for our Leadville MTB race. The downstairs Master Bedroom was certainly a bonus: kitchenette and deck with a view.

Awesome place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the last week of July 2016. We didn't want to stay in Denver because of the big-town "busy-ness" so we looked for a location that was a bit more out-of-the way and yet would allow us to see and do things within a reasonable drive time. Leadville was, for us, the ideal location. We visited Copper Mountain; went rafting on the Arkansas(?) River down by Buena Vista; visited St Elmos and other things.

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at this home in Leadville. Very spacious and beautiful home. My favorite place was on the deck just outside of the kitchen area. The view from here was fantastic. Mt Elbert and Mt Masive were awesome! Watching the sun set behind the mountains was such an awesomely beautiful sight to see and then watching the stars at night was so peaceful!

Our hosts were the most fantastic people and was delighted to be able to meet them and have great conversations with them.

I would absolutely recommend this house to anyone who is considering it. We would stay here again; no doubt about it!
