Sun Mountain Retreat
This spacious residence has easy access, yet it is secluded in the mountains where you bask in clean air and brilliant winter sun.
The backyard forms your own private park. You can relax while your children are engrossed with the excitement of their own secluded space. The large log playground provides swings for tiny tots to adults. Logs form a balance bridge, slide pole, a sliding board, climbing tires. The concrete basketball court has two baskets. Equipment is available to set up tether ball, volleyball or badminton. The treehouse is a challenging climb - only for the adventurous. National Forests border the property and provide hundreds of acres of hiking. A treasure map leads the adventurous through the mountains to an old gold mine and 'treasure.' There are hammocks, , lawn chairs, , gas grill. We are located in the beauty of Ute Pass.
Relaxation is enriched with our spacious spa / game room. There you can soak in our hot tub where you can watch movies or cheer on your energetic friends. The kids compete in air hockey, while adults play foosball or billiards on our 8-foot slate pool table.
Since your vacation is a time for rest, we splurged on the bedding. Memory-foam on the mattresses provides form-fitting support. The beds are covered with fluffy down comforters. Sleep in the unique, theme-decorated bedrooms - each is an imagination experience.
'King’s Crown' room has a king-sized bed. 'Country Garden' has two queen size, canopy beds. 'Grandma’s Attic' has two twins, one of which is an adjustable bed that can be positioned for special sleeping needs. 'Wilderness Trail' has two twin beds. 'Mountain Adventure' has two twin beds inside a large tent. Finally, one of the living rooms has a queen-size hide-a-bed.
The house is specially designed to be environmentally friendly. Sun rays flood the house with toasty warmth during the winter, and in the summer the house is naturally cooled. Laundered linens are dried on a line in the fresh mountain air. Woodland Park, our nearby 'City Above the Clouds,' boasts an average of 300 sunny days per year, more than San Diego, CA or Miami Beach, FL.
In the summer the 8500 foot elevation means pleasant days and cool nights. Another benefit of our high elevation, recent studies show that obese people can quickly lose weight and keep it off for weeks afterwards by spending time at higher altitudes.
Our expansive solar windows take advantage of the sun and clean mountain air. Through them you look on to your private yard. There is no central heating system, so on those occasional winter days when the sun is hidden, you set individual heaters in the rooms or better yet, your family will gather around your glowing fire in the wood stove. 'Roughing it' never felt so good.
The home is well stocked with a convection-oven stove, coffee maker, large cooking pans, commercial steamer, crock pot, mixer, blender, toaster, microwave and MUCH MORE - equipment that surpasses most home kitchens. Plus we supply a good supply of your basic staple foods so you generally need to buy mostly just meat, produce and dairy. There is baby equipment: high chair, crib, backpack baby carrier, stair guards.
We, the owners/managers live nearby so are immediately available to provide for your every need.
