The time on the property was terrific. The scenery was absolutely beautiful. With the pond right out front, the Colorado River in back, and surrounded by mountains made for one of the most scenic properties we have been at.
The house was perfect for the 8 of us. The open floor plan allowed us to socialize together as we prepared meals and the large table allowed us to all eat at the same table for meals.
The house was perfectly centralized to visit the wineries in Palisade and the hot springs in Glenwood Springs.
We really enjoyed staying at this unique property, including hiking with the dogs up the ridge and seeing the cows in the field. All of the decks and balconies really added to the experience and connected us to the outdoors. The roaring creek even in winter was beautiful to see. Charity decorated the house for Christmas, complete with a Christmas tree and lights, and provided candy and other decorations which was super thoughtful.
While the stay was great, we would make a few recommendations to make it even better. The full moon didn't help, but the master bedroom is awfully bright without shades on the windows or skylights. Also, cooking spaghetti for a large family was a challenge with one big pot--had to cook the sauce, then wash the pot and cook the spaghetti. A large bowl for a salad and mixing was also needed. Also, in the downstairs bathroom having a place to put your shampoo, etc. while in the shower would be great. These are mostly easy fixes that would make this truly 5 stars.
Thanks for the fun! We'd love to return in the summer.
