About the property

2 bedroom with panoramic mountain views

The Stone Cottage Getaway is a newly constructed cottage built using the local fieldstone on the property completed in 2000 by owners Brent & Karen Helleckson. The cottage housed the Helleckson family while revitalizing the vines and raising their two children on the estate. Hellecksons reside in a new home on the property. Enjoy incredible mountain views and starry nights in the quiet Paonia atmosphere. A complementary bottle of Stone Cottage wines is included in every 3 day minimum stay.

About Karen Helleckson

Brent and Karen Helleckson hand-built this cottage before starting their successful winery, Stone Cottage Cellars.

Karen Helleckson purchased this cottage in 1994

Why Karen Helleckson chose Southwest

Staying next to the vineyard in this hand built stone cottage is a unique and peaceful vacation for anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Three miles away from the town of Paonia gives you access to shopping, ice cream shops and special events.

What makes this cottage unique

Sit at the table outside the cottage and watch the hummingbirds feed while reading a good book.

Our stay couldn't have been better, Karen and Brent were great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting our son in the area and the cottage was so charming and in such a beautiful setting. We enjoyed sitting outside by the vineyard each night for a relaxing glass of wine. Gibbs the family dog greeted us each morning and the hummingbirds were fun to watch...our stay couldn't have been better, we'll definitely be back!!

The Stone Cottage was perfect for our family of four! The

So beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage and location are lovely. We would definitely come stay again! Our hosts were friendly and helpful when we had a request, and gave us good tips on restaurants. The cottage is located at a winery with super wines. The property has amazing views overlooking the Paonia valley and mountains beyond. There are two other wineries to visit in the same neighborhood and it's a quick drive into town. The kitchen is well-stocked, with a very nice espresso/capucino/coffee maker (bring your coffee pre-ground). We walked over to the farm next door to purchase rack of lamb for our dinner in. There is no TV, but we were fine with that. There is wifi (ok, but not a big bandwidth if you were thinking about streaming videos - that's just the nature of being away from it all in beautiful Paonia).

Darling Little Cottage within a Beautiful Vineyard

  • 5 of 5

Firstly staying in Paonia, Co was really like stepping into another world. Every part of the area, the hills, orchards, farms, Wineries, People, and even the Ice Cream store in town was really charming. The Stone Cottage was a delightful place to stay. The Cottage was just as they pictured it and very quite for getting away from it all. Master Bedroom Loft was up the stairs but still doable. Looking outside was a real treat because of the lush grapevines and garden. The view was quite expansive that looked at the whole Valley in some spots. Driving up to the cottage was so picturesque. There is a cute little Sheep Farm along the way. Where the little lambs baa during the daytime and let you sleep at nite! I really would suggest staying here. The owners are wonderful, and their wine is delicious. It's well worth staying here!
