About the property

When you step through the door at the Casita, you feel the welcoming energy of this sweet place. She was created using architectural principles of sacred geometry. The views of the Sangre de Cristo mountains, Kit Carson especially, are breath-giving. The house is set on 2 1/2 acres of land, bordered by National land and serenaded by the soothing sounds of Willow Creek. The Crestone community is shared by a diverse range of spiritual and new age centers, and is also a mecca for alternative, green and sacred architecture. With prolific wildlife and exquisite nature, this is an ideal location for your retreat.

About Merrin Wilding (Stein)

I am the fortunate owner of the Casita Crestone, living in Boulder, Colorado. Drawn to the Casita years ago as a writing/meditation retreat, it was a joy to come into possession of the Casita when our friends were able to let it go. I love sharing this space with the many guests and friends that have had the opportunity to travel here. I hope you get to enjoy it as well!

Merrin Wilding (Stein) purchased this house in 2009

Why Merrin Wilding (Stein) chose Crestone

This is fast becoming the choice retreat rental in Crestone; energetically peaceful, well maintained and specially cared for by an owner that loves it as well. Please take the time to read a few of the many positive reviews I am so grateful to have received. This Casita is a little gem.

What makes this house unique

Deep quiet and stunning views. Elegant simplicity in an earth- toned palette. A short walk to Willow Creek and many temple sites just down the road.

Magic by the mountains

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect weekend getaway. The views from the living room are awesome. We quickly noticed how quiet and peaceful the space was. The deer are plentiful and very friendly and welcoming! This is a special place in every way.

I would recommend you try and touch base with Marrin ahead of time and take her tips on places to see and visit nearby. It is very useful if it is your first time in Crestone/Baca.

Mind blowing get away

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was absolutely mind blowing. From the deer outside to the huge windows with the sight of mountains, we have never experienced such a warm and welcoming environment. Home away from home is how it felt! From the little town of Crestone and exploring the Stuppas and temples to a 30 min drive to the hot springs and Great Sand dunes, our time spent there was so beautiful and intentional. We definitely will be back, and recommend it to anyone seeking a warm and welcoming getaway environment!

Beautiful, comfortable and clean. Highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

My siblings and I were looking for a place to stay as my father entered Hospice Care. The house was beautiful, clean, and comfortable. It was a much needed place of peace and solace during a difficult time. We look forward to coming back at another time.
