“Above the Clouds” is the name of this truly unique Luxury Estate, sitting on 32 private acres on top of Bear Mountain at just over 8,000’ elevation. This home is built directly into the side of the mountain with 20’ boulders on each side of the entrance to the front door, with huge boulders carried on into the great room, with 3 waterfalls cascading from the dining room, down into the Great Room.

Please note: We are firm on our pricing and minimum number of nights and are unable to accommodate requests for discounted nightly rates or shorter stays. The minimum night requirement ranges from three nights to six nights, depending on the season, and our seasonal pricing does vary. Our minimum booking age is 30. When inquiring, please include the following details that will help us determine if this home is a good fit for your group and give us info needed for the contract:

-Your age and if you are an all-adult group, the average age of your group members.

-The maximum number of adults and kids that you will have (even if you don't yet have final numbers).

-Any day guests that you plan to have at the house.

-A little bit about the purpose of your visit to CO. What brings you out, what are some of the activities planned?

About Cristine Arnold, Legacy Real Estate Management

About the Property Manager:

I’m a Colorado native who was fortunate to spend my elementary school years living in Evergreen. I have love and passion for houses…over the years I have fix and flipped several homes, moved a handful of houses, completed construction on builder-abandoned homes, and managed dozens of rental properties. (One of my remodels even made a debut on HGTV!) I have found my true love in managing luxury vacation rental properties along the Colorado front range, and taking care of my incredible guests! –Cristine Arnold

About the Owners:

We own several VRBO properties in Texas and enjoy seeing families and friends gather at our homes. We have always loved visiting Colorado so in 2014, after months of looking, we found and purchased this beautiful mountain property to use as a second home and to share with others when we're back in Texas. My wife is an amazing interior designer and has worked hard to create a warm, inviting environment where you can kick off your shoes and relax as you breathe in the clean rocky mountain air. Welcome. And if you decide to book with us, we're glad to have you. Enjoy your stay! –Phil and Peggy Collins

Cristine Arnold, Legacy Real Estate Management purchased this estate in 2014

Why Cristine Arnold, Legacy Real Estate Management chose Evergreen

Even those who call themselves Colorado natives walk into this home and find themselves speechless; the view is like nothing you have experienced before. The summer landscape boasts beautiful shades of green, fall showcases the golden leaves of the changing season, and the winter dusts thousands of pines with a soft, white snow which fully covers the distant range and calls you to the slopes!

What makes this estate unique

Not only is this property breathtakingly beautiful, it also sleeps up to 22 guests (double occupancy), or 14 (single occupancy) in beds. Companies wanting to give their employees the ultimate retreat experience, families wanting to take in all that Colorado has to offer, and friends who wish to gather and spend time together on top of a mountain...these are the groups to which we open our doors. Welcome!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you! My family (15 of us ranging from 8 to 72) enjoyed everything about this home. The accommodations, the views, and the central location made it the ideal home to either relax inside for the day or head out to the surrounding areas! Would definitely return!

Super Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

I can't even describe how awesome this place is! The house is spacious with gorgeous views! It never felt cramped with our group of 19. The house was super clean when we arrived. The entertainment room is amazing! Movie theatre, hot tub, pool table, foosball. Many hours were spent there!

We didn't have any issues, mostly because Cristine had taken care of everything. She was fantastic throughout the entire process! The only complaint my group had was we should've stayed longer. We will definitely be coming back!

Stunning Mountaintop Getaway in Gorgeous Huge Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of nine adults from Texas had tons of room to spread out in this spacious home with breathtaking mountain views and luxury amenities like a large indoor hot tub, movie theatre, game room, and well-appointed kitchen. We enjoyed the most relaxing weekend here at Above the Clouds and loved working with Christine, the manager, who kept in contact from the time of booking through checkout and even helped us with local dining and activity recommendations. We enjoyed exploring Denver as well but were tempted to never leave the house after we arrived. Truly a break from everyday life at this amazing Colorado getaway!!

Perfect house for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

The house is more beautiful than pictured. The views are amazing and there’s so much space no matter how many people are in the house you never feel too crowded. There were some days where we’d rather stay in the house taking advantage of all the amenities versus going out into the city. Christine was extremely easy to work with she went above and beyond to help us have a memorable experience. This is the only places I’d want to stay in Denver.

Incredible.

  • 5 of 5

I didn't want to leave! Not only is this property amazing, but the property manager Cristine is incredible. We had the most amazing time. The views were incredible, the house is well maintained and stocked. It was easy to find. If we needed anything Cristine got back to us within seconds, and that is not an exaggeration. I highly recommended staying here, you will not be disappointed.
