About Blair & Lori Decker
In 1982, after patiently searching for 10 years, my parents found & purchased 80 pristine acres bordered by thousands of BLM acreage. It was their dream to build a home where their grandchildren could visit & experience some of God's amazing creations. So in 1991, after my father retired from the military and his civilian career, he & my mom & her brother spent two years lovingly building this beautiful 4,380 square foot custom home. In 2009, I was blessed to purchase the property from my parents & I began updating it with some wonderful amenities that somehow make this great property even better. My family & I love getting up to the property for our vacations. Some of our favorites include preparing big meals together, enjoying the crisp mornings with a cup of coffee out on one of the patios, hiking the back acreage, spotting the beautiful animals, getting a great game going or having a movie night, enjoying a beautiful fire in the living room or in the stone fire pit,....the memories & precious moments go on and on. In 2013, we decided to begin sharing this amazing place as a vacation rental home & now we love returning to read the great notes in the guest book where we get to hear about some of the favorite experiences our guests have on this incredible property. We greatly look forward to having you & your family here to do the same.

Why Blair & Lori Decker chose Cotopaxi
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION...80 acres of private land with a lush front pasture with a big beautiful barn, views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, hiking right outside the back door up the back 20-acres & 2-sides of the property are bordered by thousands of BLM acres & it's ALL just 15 minutes from some of the BEST rafting & fly fishing in the United States! The home is 4,380 sq. ft with three levels including 4 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths & a HUGE game room level. The house sleeps 12-16+ people (14 in beds + we have additional spots on 2 air-mattresses + couches). Outdoors: We have many outdoor activities that you can enjoy – There are 2 Mountain bikes on-site & available for you to use. The hiking sticks are ready to go in the garage so grab one before you head up the mountain on the back-half of the property. The stone fire pit is great fire-side stories. Out in front of the house, is a fantastic adult sport area for horseshoes & Bocce. And, on the mountain side, we now have an AMAZING kid's area with a 10x12 ft fully decked out Playhouse & game area with hammocks for relaxing adult supervising. During the summer months, we have a basketball hoop in the large driveway area & the basketballs & other sporting equipment - including fishing pools, etc. are just inside the garage. - A Short Drive Away: You can enjoy White Water Rafting, Fly Fishing, Kayaking, Rock Climbing, Rappelling, ATV/4-Wheeling Adventure, Horseback Riding, Hunting, Royal Gorge & the Royal Gorge Route Railroad & Helitours, Zip Lining, Skyline Drive, Colorado Prison Museum, Tunnel Road, The Gold Mine Rock Shop, etc. Monarch Ski Resort is fantastic & it's a doable 90-minute drive from the house if any one in your group is looking to ski one or two days of your vacation.
