Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Coal Creek Canyon, CO, USA:
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 owner is in town there is the possibility of 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. Horse back riding, Special Events; parties, weddings, retreats and catering are available for extra fees.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Beautiful Views, wildlife, serenity, fresh mountain air, hiking and mountain biking near by, close to skiing, gaming, shopping, 45 min to downtown Denver. Less than 30 min to Boulder, Nederland & 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!
