Met expectations

Found the place to be very clean. Including hot tub water. Appreciated the firewood as the evening cooled down. Clearly met our expectations. Thank you Cathy!!

Westminster, CO

Charming place with great views and accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This was a charming place to spend a long weekend in the mountains. The house came well-equipped with everything we needed to have a comfortable stay. The view from the deck and hot tub was amazing, although the deck itself could use updated.

The location was perfect--just close enough to Breckenridge and Alma to make an easy trip to town, but comfortably isolated in the mountains otherwise. There are many, many amazing hikes and trails within a couple of miles with varying difficulty. Cell phone service was pretty spotty at the house if that's something that would affect your trip, although it did not for us.

The owner was friendly and more than accommodating and informational.

A lovely place to get on mountain time.

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this comfy family home. Our family of five fit very comfortably. We had everything we needed as well as hikes near by. My adult children enjoyed using the hot tub each day. Cathy was an awesome host. We did fine staying at a high altitude, but I’m guessing that may be hard for some. I enjoyed birding from the deck each morning and we even saw a moose just 20ft ahead on the road one day. It headed so quickly into the trees that I only got a picture of his backside. This is a lovely home with beautiful scenery. A real gem.

Beautiful property with breath taking views!

  • 5 of 5

This home had spectacular views from every window. It was beautifully decorated and so comfortable. It felt like a quaint ski lodge. It was a short drive to Breckenridge where the food was excellent and shopping was superb. The sprawling deck with a hot tub made for relaxing evenings and daytime wildlife watching. I highly recommend this property anytime of year!

View to die for!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 people staying in the cabin for our 4th of July family get away and the cabin was the perfect size. We never felt like we were on top of each other, yet was cozy enough to sit around and have great conversations. The teens had a blast in the loft- perfect area for them to make their own. The view was just breathtaking, lots of time spent out on the deck just looking at the mountain and the blue sky. Furniture and beds were all very comfortable. Last but not least the owner is super responsive to any questions or concerns just a call or text away. 💙🏞
