If you love starting your day with a cup of coffee enjoying nature, being warmed by the rising Eastern sun and a panoramic view of Pikes Peak, then that is only the beginning of a wonderful experience at this home. We spent many hours outside on their private expansive deck enjoying our meals as well as relaxing and enjoying nature. The home was newly renovated, clean, comfortable and roomy with great mountain décor. It is very open with a lot of windows for great viewing. We had 4 people in our party and the 3 bathrooms gave everyone their privacy. A few extras that came with the house that we enjoyed having were: Wi-Fi, Pandora Music, Cable TV, Gas Fireplace, Gas Grill, all new appliances,binoculars, a pair of readers, if needed ;), a garage and bicycles. The beds were very comfortable, especially after relaxing in the hot tub which sits just out the door on the deck. We enjoyed this nightly while star gazing and visiting with family. We saw planets, shooting stars, the milky way and many constellations. Our purpose for this stay was to get out of the Denver heat and do some star gazing and just relax. We did go to Cripple Creek one afternoon and toured the Mollie Kathleen Mine. It is WELL worth the $25.00/person and one of the best we've seen here in Colorado. We'd like to thank our host and hostess for their great communication and making us so comfortable in their beautiful mountain home. We hope to be back soon!
