Best place around
From the sunrises in the loft, the decor, the surroundings, wild life and outdoors, this place exceeded our expectations! I'm used to Cuchara area but would stay at this home again and again. Thanks for sharing it was a wonderful family and friends new years eve!
We are so glad that you appreciated the Spanish Peaks Villa, its privacy, and views as much as we do. We hope your children had as many memorable adventures as ours have had. Thanks for being such wonderful guests!
Please come back to visit again soon.
We enjoyed every aspect and Joan was so nice!
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!
Thanks for choosing the Spanish Peaks Villa for your most special day. 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!

The property was fantastic.
The added bonus was the manager Joan H.!
We really enjoyed hosting you and your wonderful family, Victor!
Thanks for choosing to stay at Spanish Peaks Villa.
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.
It was a pleasure to host you and your friends! Thanks for appreciating the wonders of the Spanish Peaks Villa's immersive natural setting. Please come back again!
Million dollar house with million dollar views!
A five star reviews doesn't do this villa justice - it blew us away!
Definitely a trip and deal of a lifetime.
Eclectic, scenic town nestled in Cuchara River Valley between majestic Rocky Mountain Peaks - perfect getaway and launching point for outdoor activities or local fun, arts, and conversation. La Veta is a haven for renowned artists, musicians, CEOs, ranchers, summer bikers, and friendly hard working locals.
