Why Kevin Layton chose Castle Rock

Our beautiful property is blessed with calming, majestic views in every direction. The west showcases some of the Rocky’s highest peaks including Longs Peak, Mount Evans, Grays Peak to name a few. To the north we have the views of Castle Pines Canyon, to the east you can see the town of Castle Rock and to the south Pikes Peak. We are so fortunate to have an array of wildlife that inhabits our land such as Elk, Deer, coyotes, owls and daily appearance of Red-tailed Hawks and Bald Eagles soaring in the bright blue Colorado sky. Along with our wonderful herd of horses we have our small herd of simply sweet Alpacas and a few of man’s best friends.

What makes this apartment unique

The location of this property is one of the many wonderful benefits. It resides on the top of the rolling meadows of Castle Rock in a gated community offering privacy and yet driving convenience to Denver, Mountain destinations, shopping and local landmarks.

Peaceful setting with amazing sunrises and sunsets from the Loft!

Great location almost midway between Denver and Colorado Springs 7-10 minutes out of town.

Very comfortable Loft studio tastefully decorated.

We enjoyed city life as well as some great hikes.

Looking forward to next time!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a few days at the ranch and loved it. The loft is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed for a relaxing and peaceful weekend. We enjoyed all of the animals, especially the alpacas. The ranch is minutes away for shopping, dining, and area recreation. It is truly a small slice of heaven. Thanks Lin for sharing this property and being a great host. We will be back again.

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property. Was outstanding waking up to the horses and llama each morning. The inside of the loft was so beautiful and decorated so very nice. The bed was outstanding and very, very comfortable. Great place to stay if you want to be alone and listen to the outdoor sounds. We will be back, but not soon enough.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the loft! I stayed there with my friend and my 3 year old son. It was fun interacting with the animals and my son especially liked chasing the "kitties" around! Although I don't know how much they appreciated it! The loft had everything that we needed and is well stocked with everything from paper towels to spices. The bed was comfortable and the linens were very nice. It was nice to see Lin every day as she went about her barn chores! The weather was cold so we were only able to spend short periods of time outside, but the loft was big enough to keep my son entertained while inside! We took a nice walk on the paved paths in Castlewood Canyon park, which is only about 15 minutes from the loft. The town of Castle Rock is a short drive away and offers lots to do. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful and Quiet stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was peaceful and relaxing. The loft was clean and inviting. The hosts were welcoming and felt like family. Loved the company of the alpacas(Pappy was a treat), horses(loved Danny), kitties(Luna was our favorite), and of course the daily visits from Aspen and Riley. Beautiful sunsets and quiet coffee mornings on the deck. Thank you! We'll be back. Hopefully we can meet Lin during our next stay.
