About Rob and Cathy Fritz

Hello! We are Rob and Cathy Fritz. Welcome to our spectacular mountain home! From Florida, constantly, we are overcome by this place's beauty and we love to share it with our guests!

Rob retired from the investment industry and Cathy from the construction industry.

Like you, we love the outdoors: playing in the snow, hiking, biking, riding ATVs and dirt bikes, climbing 14ers, camping, and just appreciating nature.

We truly value you, our guests. We know what it's like to feel stretched in every direction, to need to get away and refresh. Our goal is to provide you with a fabulous rejuvenating Colorado experience.

Rob and Cathy Fritz purchased this estate in 2013

Why Rob and Cathy Fritz chose Leadville

You will LOVE this property as much as we do! Nothing is more private - a 40 Acre Playground! This place enchanted us; it has a way of refreshing you; it's paradise! For us, it's a place to Unplug from life's distractions and reconnect with each other and the outdoors in luxury and comfort, with Internet, of course!

We LOVE the privacy and quiet -- no neighbors right next door, no traffic, no street lights or power lines blocking the spectacular view. And, WHAT VIEWS!!-- located minutes from downtown Leadville for shopping, dining, and entertainment.

What fun to explore the woods, there's room to build a snow fort (or a VILLAGE). It's a great family get away. So close to all the best ski slopes and sledding destinations.

We love this place because it refreshes us, rejuvenates us, and helps us to reconnect. We know it will do the same for you!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stunning and gorgeous views from the entire property. The house is amazing and so are the owners, Rob and Cathy. From booking to our return trip home, they went out of their way to make our family feel welcome. The listing was exactly as described. We have already recommended this property to friends and family. This home is in a perfect location. It is secluded enough and yet just a close enough for any shopping or dining you could want. Our group of seven spent most of our time deciding on sitting on the deck enjoying the views and each others company or getting out for all the outdoor activities. Bike trails from the front door, fishing at many different locations, ATV trails from the driveway, star gazing on deck, shopping in town, whitewater rafting, or a quick drive to Breckenridge, make this home ideal for all types of families and activities. We never would have thought that our two 15 year old boys would not have turned the TV on for an entire week. Home gym and hikes everyday or sitting around the house in a secluded mountain setting, you pick. This place has it all. We are very thankful to Rob and Cathy for making this a great family vacation. We no longer have to search through other properties or locations for next summer

Great family vacation

  • 4 of 5

The view from this house is spectacular! The house is very roomy and we were a family of 8. We loved the huge wrap around deck and the 3 levels. We were never crowded! Did miss having cable and the internet was weak and very slow. They did have a huge supply of movies that you could watch. Loved the location and the town was very close by. Good choice of restaurants and stores nearby. The house was well supplied with all toiletries , kitchen equipment but we missed having a dishwasher

Rob and Cathy were very helpful and so great to rent from. We had a great vacation that included snowboarding, skiing, tubing and other activities. We did have some altitude sickness which they say is very common for this area. We did drink lots of water also. One of our couples had to go down to a lower altitude and finish their stay in Denver. If not for that we would go back for sure. The view , house and owners are great!

Beautiful home/location/view

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this home in Leadville. It is a beautiful home that had everything we needed and wanted for our stay! The property was just beautiful with all of the trees and snow. We were glad to have 4 wheel drive for the driveway. But, Rob and Cathy were very attentive to our arrival and making sure the driveway was plowed when we got there. And, the views out of the house windows and from the deck were amazing! It seems so secluded, but is so conveniently close to Leadville and Ski Cooper. The house was well stocked and CLEAN! We skied 3 days at Ski Cooper and then were able to relax in the evenings at the house. Kids enjoyed the movies, books and ping pong table. The owners were very easy to work with, very reachable and responsive. We would definitely stay in this home again if we venture to the Leadville area!

Thank you again and come back and see us in the summer or fall--both seasons spectacular! Our Best, Rob and Cathy

Beautiful house, beautiful spot, amazing hosts!

  • 5 of 5

A simply wonderful home in a gorgeous spot. We stayed for 5 days the week of Labor Day. Cathy and Rob are amazing hosts, only concerned with making things seamless, easy, and memorable. From the furnishings of the house, to the extra details like blankets, games, etc, everything about the week in the house was fantastic. We spent the days climbing some of the beautiful area 14ers, and the evenings just relaxing in the house. A true highlight was sitting out at the firepit in the evening, having a drink and just enjoying the peacefulness of the location. Thank you Rob and Cathy for being such wonderful hosts and sharing your home with us.

If you are planning to be anywhere close to the Leadville area, I cannot stress enough what a wonderful choice it is to stay at the Garden of Rocks as guests of Rob and Cathy.
