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.

Absolutely Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four picked this location together and couldn't have been happier with our stay. Everything was exactly how it was described and the seclusion and nature all around was just what we were looking for. The views were amazing and the loft was a perfect place to call home for the week. The location was great for us as we spent some days in Denver and some days in Colorado Springs (as well as the Epic Sky Challenge right there in Castle Rock!!) We would suggest this ranch to anyone who is traveling to the area, and we hope to be back again someday. Thank You!

Wonderful place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome and restful experience. Kevin has a beautiful place and our dogs loved it! Very convenient to shopping and great walking/running areas. And easy access to roads leading to Denver area. We would love to return one day and would highly recommend this place for anyone, especially if you have dogs. Thanks Kevin!

Wonderful place with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

We have spent three nights at this place with our teenage daughters and really loved it. The apartment is spacious and clean and offers a well equipped kitchen and a good size bathroom. We enjoyed the great views, the most beautiful sunset and the alpacas that graze on the fields around the house. Kevin is a very nice host. We would definitely recommend to stay at this unique place.

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!
