Great place and service

  • 5 of 5

From the beginning Sandy communicated well. Rock House is quaint and cozy with plenty of space for the 4 of us. The home is generously supplied with everything from towels, linens, and blankets to kitchen supplies and everything else one needs. We left something behind and Sandy mailed it to us. The cafes in town offered good food at a good price. We did a day trip to Saratoga, WY which has a few shops, restaurants, and a free hot mineral springs. We also snow shoed in State Forest State Park which is near. Only disappointment is not seeing a moose. High recommend The Rock House.

Nice size story book house. With everything you could possibly need. We stayed over the Thanksgiving holiday, a perfect experience for us. We wil be back again. Sandy was a terrific host. We just love Sandy and what she has done to the home called the Rock House.

As with our previous stay at the Rock House, everything was great. The house was clean, well supplied, and convenient for our activities. We plan to stay there again.

Located in the scenic north central portion of Colorado, North Park/Jackson County offers a wide range of outdoor recreation opportunities in spectacular a mountain setting.Terrain varies from 12,000 feet glacier carved peaks to lush river valleys, even sand dunes. No matter the season North Park has a unique natural beauty and down-home western atmosphere. If you're looking for an undiscovered alpine area, look no more. Over half of North Park/Jackson County is national and state forests, parks and wildlife refuges where you will discover unique and plentiful wildlife, fields of wildflowers. Dotted through out are working cattle ranches and sweet smelling native hay. Ghost towns dating from turn of the century mining days can be reached by car. Lakes and streams provide balm to a fishermans heart. Many areas are available for horse trail rides, hiking, ATV and cycling.

A rural community must rely on its own ingenuity. Every season has some must do activities sponsored by community volunteers. Winter provides the Gould ski scramble, snowmobile poker run (hosting disabled veterns), fishing derbys and Frosty Pines golf tourny. Spring brings guided Sage Grouse lek tours that are a special treat to birders. Summer finds North Park Pioneer reunion, Never Summer Rodeo, North Park Day street fair, Motorcycle poker run and enduro, not to be missed first weekend in Aug is Sky's the Limit hot air balloons, several Ride in the Park car rallys come to town including Viper club, BMW, Antique. Peddling abounds and touring bicycle events are scheduled through out the summer. Fall is time for the North Park Fair, Ranch Rodeo, Harvest Craft Festival. Come visit, investigate when you feel the need, relax, take time to appreciate peaceful sunsets, breathtaking clear night skies and friendly natives. We're open all year long.
