Overview

About the property

The Byers Peak is on the top floor of the lodge at Williams Fork Lodging VRBO #61999.

Located on 40 remote, private acres. the Byers Peak is the perfect place for a romantic getaway, it features a gas fire place, balcony, dishwasher, washer/dryer.

Queen bedroom, dinning room and large kitchen. additional single beds can be set up if needed.

Discounted passes to the Hot Springs resort are available as well as fresh chicken eggs!

Experience the old west as it was and still is as you pass through working ranches that were homestead on the early 1900's their weathered log cabins can still be seen and are often still in use, others are close enough for a great photo opportunity.

Colorado's open range law permits ranchers to graze their cattle without boarders so you will often find them on the roadways or you may even get caught up in a cattle drive as the ranchers move cattle from one pasture or paddock to another.

Spring brings all the calves and branding time! Observing the rancher, his horse and dog working together is a real treat.

Look along the sides of the road for sage grouse, in the open fields for pronghorn, down in the willows and streams for the bull moose, in the trees for the mule deer and on top of the ridge lines for the elk. There are also bald eagle and osprey nests, alpacas, horses and sheep, All this just on the ride into Williams Fork Lodging!

Our place sits above all this at the end of the road and adjacent to public lands tucked beneath Copper Peak on the Williams fork range. Our elevation is roughly 8,500 feet.

The view is breath taking, it's 180' takes in three mountain ranges many peaks, pastures, forest, ponds, the sun rise, as well as being one of the best places to be for a full moon or if you prefer the stars our view of the Milky Way is unobstructed and has no light pollution for outstanding celestial shows. Meter showers are spectacular from the hot tub.

We live on the same property and are quite self sustainable, hunting, gardening, gathering wild berries and raising our own poultry meat.

The guest house is constructed of concrete and rock this as well as high efficiency windows and takes full advantage of passive solar heat, backup heat and the hot water are then provided by wood via an out side boiler maintained by us.

You are greeted with fresh eggs from our chickens. Dale offers fresh baked caramel rolls and other breads. We also have discounted passes to the hot springs!

Every season has it's own special beauty, spring brings abundant wild flowers, contrasting greens of the pine, aspen and sage. New born livestock and wild life, thunderstorms and brilliant double rainbows. birds singing, chickens crowing and total silence are welcomed in summer. Our view of the fall colors are hard to match, the changing yellow, gold and reds quaking in the valley are quite beautiful. Winter white snow untouched by human and cobalt blue sky's are post card perfect and right out your window.

You may get the feeling you'll be snowed in for months but not to worry as Greg is most likely already out plowing for your safety and convenience.

Stunning views and very nice owners

  • 5 of 5

This was a fun home base for our trip. The drive back to the property was longer than expected coming from Kremmling but overall very enjoyable once we arrived! The owners were great!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Would recommend this property to anyone and everyone. I had an amazing, relaxing time here. It is a little far out of course but well worth every minute, it’s very secluded and such a beautiful drive to the property!

Fantastic, secluded cabin in the mountains with all the needed amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for what we were looking for which was peace, calm and quiet with a stunning view!

Cabin had the amenities of being right in town without the neighbors. When you step outside the silence is deafening...definitely a welcome change from our city life.

It’s definitely off the beaten path so may not be ideal if you are planning to use it just as a place to sleep, but for a destination with a couple “day trips” planned it was perfect. Also, if you go in the winter months especially 4x4 or AWD is needed to climb their driveway in the snow and ice (but that was my favorite part of the drive in).

All around great experience for our trip, would stay again if life brings us out that way again!

Beautiful, relaxing mountain home with incredible views.

  • 5 of 5

This suite is the upstairs of the guest house at William’s Fork Lodging, and the views are absolutely incredible from all rooms of the house. There is a private deck with a grill as well as a hot tub with views of the mountains. We also enjoyed hiking around the 40 acre property. This place provided the perfect weekend getaway. Everything was very clean and comfortable when we arrived, and Dale was a great host. Highly recommend!
