Escape to Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Five stars may not be enough, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the Ranch. The location was absolutely perfect. Great fishing just minutes away! The kids took off on the ATV's right from the house. Property backs BLM so you don't have to trailer your ATV's for adventure. Just get on and go for hours on trails, from splashing in mud water on trails to exploring old mines, there's plenty to do, not to mention the scenery. If your looking for seclusion and serenity this is the place! Fish, ATV, play all day and enjoy friends and family around the campfire at night. House had plenty of room and kitchen is well equipped. With a backdrop of the mountains and forward view of the valley you will not be disappointed with this property. Thank you for letting us enjoy your home!!

family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This rustic and beautiful site was great for our mini-family reunion in the cool mountains. The bedrooms are spacious and so is the parking. We enjoyed the south deck in the cool mornings and the shaded east deck in the afternoons. The views are amazing in every direction. We also enjoyed the fire pit at night, exploring the nearby towns of Buena Vista and Salida, and a few of the local hot springs. This is a wonderful and quiet spot. The dogs loved it too.
