NOW ACCEPTING Pay Pal. For more information please contact us via email or phone for details.
Our 129 year old historic retreat is located approximately 45 miles from Denver via Hwy 285. Our1700sf retreat was originally built in 1898 and its history served as the Insmont General Store and Post Office, Depot for the Colorado Southern and Pacific Railroad,, painters studio and now our family mountain retreat.
The retreat is a truly inspirational "RUSTIC" home situated a stones throw from the North Fork of the South Platte River and nestled in the solitude of the Pike National Forest. The sound of the river rapids are heard year round and sweeping views of the river and mountains to the west make for some of the best sunsets in the area. It is understandable why our retreat is the perfect location for writers, artists, lovers, hikers, anglers, and all those who seek intimate sanctuary and solitude from city life. You will be surrounded by nature, tall pines, firs, wildflowers, deer, elk, wild turkeys, small mammals, fox, a variety of native birds and the picturesque beauty of a meandering river below a mountainside backdrop.
If you are looking for the quality of a luxury hotel, the retreat is probably not for you as it is still rustic! The Retreat is ideal for enjoying the view while soaking up the morning sun over a cup of coffee. The large fireplace perfect for sipping brandy in the evenings or reading a new novel. The main eating area is grounded by a large historic 12 foot farm table and chairs which is perfect for hosting large group dinners or crafting your favorite art project. Off of the main living room is the entryway and reading room with two cozy reading chairs, vaulted ceiling and an amazing view of the river and the mountains to the west. It is common to view Elk, deer and other wildlife in the meadow from this room.
