Nice stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Colorado for a wedding in Larkspur. We chose this home because it was large enough for our group of 14 and it was between Denver Airport and the wedding. We stayed 4 nights and had a great time. The only problem was the weather. Can't help Mother Nature!

We totally would choose this home again if another occasion came up! Everyone was happy with the privacy and quietness of their areas and the kitchen area was big enough for everyone to gather.

Magical Thanksgiving Holidays at the Retreat House

  • 5 of 5

My family had a mini family reunion at the retreat house over the Thanksgiving holidays. We had a house full, and there was enough room for everyone to relax and enjoy the time together, playing games, watching movies, playing outdoors, walking, talking, cooking -- we all had a grand time together! The property is so beautiful and the house was clean, well stocked and gorgeous. We especially enjoyed the dramatic sunsets from the back deck. It was a highlight of each evening to witness the intense colors and quiet beauty of the sky.

Many thanks to Cristine Arnold, who was so attentive and available to answer any questions we had before and during our stay. Cristine was so friendly and made the entire rental process easy and fun! We all highly recommend this home to get away and relax; from my 89 year old Mom to the 8 month old great-grand baby, we all were comfortable and had a wonderful time!

(One suggestion -- if you are going to be using the bunk room downstairs for children, it would be a good idea to check with Cristine as to whether portable guard rails are available, or to bring your own. )

Wonderful Vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

My entire family loved this property! The teenagers had a retreat area of there own in the basement where they kept their snacks in the fridge and played games. The master bedroom has the most wonderful view through the private patio doors and even those in the basement had a view through the patio doors leading outside. We never felt stuck inside the home because everywhere you were you could see the mountains. The kitchen was wonderfully stocked and helped us create large family meals. We almost didn’t get a Christmas trip because another VRBO owner closed the home we had rented for repairs and this home was available and ended up saving our Christmas! Thank you for sharing this home with us.

Owner's Response: Bobbi, when the teenagers have their own space and are happy, then everybody's happy!!! Thank you so much for sharing your experience with our future guests. This house does have the most amazing view of the Rocky Mountain glad it worked out for you all to move your reservation over to the Retreat House. We sure enjoyed having you! -Cristine

Beautiful property, magnificent views, quiet, clean and accommodating

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend. Oh my gosh, the kitchen was particularly spectacular and well stocked. The property manager made sure our stay was comfortable. The ONLY thing we didn't like was that we couldn't bring our dog with us. She doesn't shed, and is well behaved, but the rules were very specific about their "no pet" policy. Major bummer for us. ☹️

Owner's Response: Barbara, so glad you found the kitchen to be well stocked. We love to hear when our guests are happy with the way we set up of the house! I'm so sorry you were unable to bring your dog to the house. All of the homes I manage have a strict no pets policy due to the fact that so many people have pet allergies. I do understand that this policy doesn't work for everyone and fortunately, there are many pet-friendly rentals available in Colorado. Barbara, I just want to say thank you for honoring this house rule even though it wasn't says a lot about your character and who you are! Thank you again for being such a great guest. -Cristine
