Beautiful setting....

  • 5 of 5

This was great house in an immaculately kept place! Gorgeous! If our travels take us here again, we'll stay here again. I can see why this would be a favorite spot for weddings. Watching the elk was a bonus as well. The kitchen is well-stocked and the beds are luxurious....just waiting for your time here. We loved it!

Peaceful and well situated

  • 4 of 5

We booked this property as a base for some sightseeing in the Telluride and Ouray areas. It was perfectly situated and the setting is absolutely lovely. The house is very comfortable. One special treat was evening visits from Boone, the family lab, while we were relaxing on the porch and enjoying the view. We would stay here again without hesitation. I wish we had been able to stay longer!

Simply outstanding

  • 5 of 5

This property has everything that a small to mid-size family could possible need. The property is HUGE! Tons of grass for kids to run around, large covered porch with grill and plenty of seating. Peaceful and quiet, and the dark, star-filled sky at night is amazing. We would re-book this place in a heartbeat.

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful and peaceful. The view of the night sky was a treat. We hated to leave!

Linda was wonderful to work with and even came out to give our car a jump start when we discovered that we had a dead battery.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at the Elk Ranch. The owners were very nice and accommodating while the property was clean and well maintained.

My wife and I enjoyed sitting on the porch watching the Elk while our sons played ball with the owners black lab Boone.

There is plenty of room for parking a large trailer and it was nice not having to worry about things getting stolen at night like you do at a hotel off the interstate. Our only regret is we wish we had found the place sooner!
