Guestbook comments from the owner

Bride – two thumbs ups – loved it!



Groom – sometimes you do things just because they are funny.



Great time, gorgeous weather, good food & great people. Enjoyed hiking, grilling, catching up and even some dancing! Dancing was during sampling of “Scottish Scotch from Scotland”



After many great times and infinite laughs, discovery of the “song-bird or our generation” and enjoyment of wildlife, we celebrated the wedding.

Great Venue for a Wedding!!! Unique and Spacious!

  • 5 of 5

We had our Wedding at Bristlecone and were absolutely thrilled with everything!! We had been looking for a unique mountainous venue and when we visited Bristlecone, we knew it was the perfect place! We were not dissapointed. It turned out exactly the way we wanted. We were initially worried about having enough room for dinner inside but we easily were able to fit tables for 100 all upstairs. Parking was also very easy. The view is spectacular, getting a direct shot at the Spanish Peaks. Pictures turned out amazing with the beautiful surroundings. We also didn't have to decorate much as the venue speaks for itself :) We had tent campers and RV's as well which is a nice addition since it is a far location from our home in Denver. We will definitely be making it back for an Anniversary or just a weekend getaway. Stephen, the ranch hand was also extremely helpful! Thank you very much!

Wonderful Wedding Site

  • 5 of 5

We hosted our daughter wedding at this beautiful ranch. It was a two day event, we had the rehearsal dinner and the wedding at Bristlecone and it was a perfect venue for both. The house is spacious and well appointed. We enjoyed the time we had to just hang around in these tasteful and comfortable surroundings.

The home and the property were lovely and the fall colors and mountains set an amazing backdrop for the events. Both events were catered by Rhys Street Bakery and the food was outstanding, Kristina was extremely helpful and everything was perfect.

This is a beautiful site for a wedding, family gathering or just to get away.

We and our guest had a wonderful time here. We would love to come back.

Stephen the ranch manager was very helpful and able to handle and problems we has.

Difficult to coordinate an event

Beautiful home and location but difficult to coordinate an event like a wedding.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. I’m sorry you had a difficult time arranging the wedding. We have had several weddings at the property without any complaints regarding the Guest's ability to organize them, but I have recently engaged a company called “Planning Folders” that specializes in researching and gathering pertinent information for organizing a wedding in the area. It will provide detailed vendor information about wedding related goods and services which I will send to all wedding bookings in the future. It takes approximately 3-months for the research to be completed, so I won’t have the folders ready for distribution until February 2017. I’m hoping this will further enhance the overall wedding planning experience for future guests.

Christmas at Bristlecone

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent Christmas at Bristlecone, our total stay was for 6 days. The house was very clean, and it is very spacious; more than enough room for all 20 of us. The house is beautiful, it sits on a hill and is surrounded by mountains. It has awesome views from every room! There’s two Chimneys, upstairs and downstairs which kept us nice and warm during those minus degree temperatures. The bedrooms are large, all but one have king size beds. The dorm-like bedroom has 3 beds and some inflatable mattresses, 8 kids stayed here and they loved it! Both the owner and the property manager were available to help at all times. The kitchen is huge, plenty of room for all. It is equipped with everything you need cook your own meals, the only thing we didn’t find was a blender/food processor. It really wasn’t a big deal, but it would have helped with some of the meals we wanted to prepare. It truly is getting away from it all, which is what we wanted. We had AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon cell phones but only Verizon worked, there’s Wi-Fi but if you connect too many devices it slows down. The kids preferred to be outside sledding in the snow so no Wi-Fi, no problem. We will definitely stay here again in the future, maybe for the summer this time. Lastly, I want to say thank you once again to Stephen for all the help he provided; especially on the night of our arrival when we got stuck in the snow. We will be better prepared next time.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house and vista for our family's yearly get together over New Years. Plenty of room for 18 and the dorm style room was perfect for the 8 granddaughters. Lots of snow for sledding and made for great pictures. The ranch worker was great on keeping us loaded with firewood since the temps outside was below zero for a few days. Hope to be back for a fall visit sometime soon. Would highly recommend to others, owner very easy to work with.

Things To Do In / Near La Veta:.......... DOWNTOWN LA VETA.....This small, laid-back town at the base of the majestic Spanish Peaks is located along the Scenic Highway of Legends, La Veta, the vein, served as a vital lifeline a century ago; the town was originally a busy trading center, supplying the nearby area with goods. It is now home to a diverse population of artists and ranchers. Nine buildings on the site of an adobe trading post make up the Fort Francisco Museum. In addition to a schoolhouse and re-created general store, the fort contains collections of furniture, clothing, tools and more. While in town, visit the Spanish Peaks Arts Council and other local galleries for exhibits of local artists' works. Enjoy dinner at the historic La Veta Inn in the heart of town.

Against the backdrop of rugged 14,000-foot peaks in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the 30-square mile dune field, with no designated trails, invites you to explore freely. The natural system of the Park ranges from sand dunes to forests, from cottonwood groves to majestic mountain peaks and tundra. The highest elevation in the park is 13,604'. Play in intermittent Medano Creek, hike forest trails, or camp in the back country (1 hr. 8 min., 57 mi.)............... TAOS, NM.....Take a moment to explore Taos and discover the beauty, the culture, the people that make Taos and Northern New Mexico the Land of Enchantment.
