                                                                We recently returned from a week long stay in La Veta. We had a beautiful wedding ceremony and reception in the home. It was absolutely perfect in every way, and we will always hold that space in hearts. The house was spotless and extremely well taken care of in the middle of paradise! The views were breathtaking all around the house and we saw all sorts of lovely creatures outdoors. I can not say enough about the hospitality given to us by Peter and Joan. Both went WAY above and beyond what any traditional host would have offered. The place was very close to an adorable little town and we loved our morning walks where we could stop and see the horses and zebra donkey at a neighboring property. This is the best VBRO/Airbb experience we have ever had, and we travel frequently. Highly recommend it!

                                                                Owner's Response:

We were delighted to be able to host you, and thrilled that your wedding was such a successful event! Your family and friends were a joy, and we are glad that you appreciated La Veta and our memorable views. Please come back to visit again any time!

                                                                As beautiful as advertised!

                                                                We LOVED staying in this villa. We were made to feel very much at home- even with 4 kids. The place is plenty spacious and the views are absolutely gorgeous!

                                                                Often times renters can use photos that are misleading to entice your business... not here. The view and surroundings are even more fantastic than advertised. We were all so excited to see the mule deer roaming the area every day.

                                                                We would highly recommend this place and will most definitely be staying here again next year.
