About Kim

Property Owner in Travel Business for over 25 years and has worked on an 80' Yacht B & B in the San Fran Bay Area. She knows what good hospitality involves and strives to make your experience here on the Ranch a good one! If you have a special occasion, please advise Owner in advance as she'll be happy to decorate for you. Special Events available for a fee.

Kim purchased this house in 2000

Why Kim chose Coal Creek Canyon

This is our family home. We liked the idea that we could share our slice of heaven with others looking for the true rocky mountain high experience!

When the owner is in town there is the possibility of the family being on land. It's 11 acres, so lots of room! If in town during a booking & if they opt to stay on property during your visit, they have a separate, private fenced off area in which they stay, or separate entrance back apt. room, (which isn't part of the Vacation Rental). They totally respect guests privacy and are here to be of service if needed, otherwise, they keep to themselves and will never enter the main Ranch House rented during your stay.

Pony rides, Special Events; parties, weddings, retreats, etc. and also catering are available for extra fees.

What makes this house unique

Beautiful Views, wildlife, serenity, fresh mountain air, hiking and mountain biking nearby, close to skiing, gaming, shopping, 45 min to downtown Denver. Within 30 min to Boulder and Nederland and 20 minutes to Downtown Golden. Lovely Coal Creek Canyon Community. We are away from City lights so the Stars at night from our land are truly wonderful, most of the time you can see the Milky Way, great to gaze upon while soaking in the outdoor Hot Tub!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were fortunate to have a family reunion and to spend a week over Thanksgiving at this lovely Ranch home. The home is very nicely appointed and spacious inside and out. The kitchen has two ovens, which was great for holiday cooking and has everything anyone needs to cook with and serve. The living room has an awesome stone fireplace which added to the cozy ambiance and also has a wonderful pool table and nice leather furniture. The master bedroom has a great very comfortable king size Aspen bed and matching end tables. Our family felt right at home (as will yours) and would highly recommend this property to all!!!

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from our family vacation at Kim's ranch home and words cannot describe how incredibly wonderful our stay was. :) Below is the list of things we absolutely loved and appreciated at the ranch:

- The house is HUGE!

- Kim has provided more than just the basic necessities all around the home for a comfortable stay. For example, besides coffee, sugar, spices, she also stocked some additional food items in the refrigerator for us to use during our stay. Including wine! :)

- Kim was personally there to give us a walkthrough of the home just so we could understand and operate all the things provided in the house for us to use. She was also available via phone to speak with in case we had any additional questions.

- Kim has been incredible with communicating any and all the necessary information that would make our stay extremely comfortable.

- Kim has also provided information about the local history and/or tour guides for local places to visit. The hot tub, wi-fi and home phone, pool table, piano, etc. were simply the icing on the cake! :)

- All the items provided in this home are very unique and novel. The unique lighting in the home simply added to the coziness and warmth of the place. We even got to experience a fox that came trotting right in our back yard and got some food. It felt like a genuine experience of living in the mountains of Coloraro. :)

- The home is located only 20-25 mins drive from Boulder and/or Golden. The drive to and back is also enjoyable.

Thank you Kim for sharing your home with us. We thoroughly enjoyed staying at your home and would most certainly come and stay there again next time. :)

Awesome stay in the mountains.

  • 5 of 5

Kim was a great host, and her home was very lovely. The views, the snow, the horses, and the whole house was just great. This was my first visit to Colorado, and the location and amenities on this ranch were beyond my expectations. The pool table, piano, and hot tub were great additions. We even found a pretty stocked up kitchen, which was great for some items we didn't think to purchase. Included a slow cooker, rice cooker, a kitchen-aid stand mixer, and more... Made me feel like I was at home in my own kitchen. There were labels every where, which I found extremely useful, I would recommend adding labels above the light switches, which are numerous. It was also very close to ski resorts and other activities and locations we wanted to visit. Only had one issue, which Kim addressed quickly and professionally. All in all I would recommend this location to anyone!!! Thanks Kim for inviting us into your your vacation home.

What a peaceful ranch!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My three sisters and my daughter came up to celebrate my birthday at Rocky Mountain Ranch and we just loved it! There was plenty of room and all the amenities you can think of. We enjoyed the hot tub and a fire every single night. Ranch was so quiet and beautiful. Loved feeding the beautiful horses apples everyday.....they were so sweet. Kim was such a gracious and thoughtful host. I will definitely recommend the ranch to my family and friends when they come and visit me in Colorado. We had such a wonderful time! Thanks so much for your thoughtfulness Kim!

Nice stay in Coal Creek Canyon

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed staying at Kim's house and she was very friendly and accommodating. It was wonderful to be near Boulder but away from the town in the evenings. The property was beautiful with horses wandering out back. We were able to hike at the nearby Walker Ranch trail and the scenery is stunning.

Owner's Response: THIS STAR RATING WAS IN ERROR! I communicated with the Guests as they had said they had a great time and left nice comments on their review and in my Guest Book. Please see Polly's comment she sent to me below. * * "Hi Kim - Oh dear! I will fix my star rating for you right away! I must have been in a little bit of a hurry. Let me find where to go to redo that for you. We loved our stay! Thanks - Polly" - Unfortunately, after contacting VRBO there is no way to change the Star Rating even in an error. :( Please know I do my very best to give all my guests a 5 Star Experience!

Great property for family gatherings!

  • 5 of 5

Several family members rented homes around the Coal Creek area for a family reunion, but ours ended up being the family gathering spot with good reason. The play set and horses were perfect for the kids, we set up horse rides before getting there and were surprised at the time attention the kids got. The house is bigger than it looks in the photos, and we got good use out of the pool table, fire pit, and hot tub. Considering renting again in the future!

Great place for a mountain get away!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at the ranch. There was plenty of space for 5 adults and we never felt cramped. We enjoyed wandering the property and interacting with the horses. The hot tub was a welcome sight after a day of hiking. The location made it convenient to get to Boulder and plenty of hiking trails. I would not hesitate to stay here again!! Thanks!!
