PERFECT COUNTRY GET-A-WAY~ 5 bdrm~35 Ac & Weddings
It was an honor to be selected as one of four houses in all of Colorado!!
Want to get away from the hustle and bustle? Want to find the vacation spot of a lifetime? Look no further. This is true Country living at its finest on this 35 acre working horse ranch property with beautiful rustic log home and all the modern amenities you need. Watch wildlife from the comfort of a scenic wrap around deck, as well as taking in the most amazing sunsets and sunrises around. Why do people want to come to Colorado? They come for the Rocky Mountains, of course. The Front Range Mountains are nestled up right to the front door and start within (almost) walking distance of the house. You can practically reach out and touch them. Want to bring family and friends? No problem with this 5 bedroom, 3 bathrooms, 2 full sized kitchens, (1 king, 5 queen sized beds and 2 doubles) and more. Can you feel the excitement of the best vacation EVER beginning already? We've only just begun.
You will turn onto your own private drive (only 10 minutes from town) to arrive at this -no neighbors- dream property. Begin with relaxing in the 23' high ceiling great room that will remind you of being at a very high end hunting lodge (but don't worry ladies, no animal heads in all the bedrooms). Take some time to make arrangements for a fun filled horseback riding trail ride that leaves right from the front entrance. Book a horseback riding lesson with an onsite horse trainer in a quite indoor or outdoor arena (great year round), located right on the property. Need a relaxing massage? Say no more. An onsite massage room and licensed massage therapist is available upon request!
Country living isn't complete without fabulous meals! Make your own home cooking in a fabulous, granite countertop, Australian Cypress flooring, 6 burner gas stove w/ 2 ovens, gourmet kitchen upstairs. How about a good old fashioned BBQ? You'll have access to 2 large gas grills that will cook your meat to perfection. Or make reservations at Gabriel's Restaurant and Tuscan Bar. This 5 star restaurant is just 10 minutes away and has the most amazing Italian cuisine around. There are also several nice restaurants to choose from right in downtown Castle Rock (only 10 minutes away).
This is definitely a year round property with fun in the sun opportunities as well. Love to golf? Say no more. The Ridge at Castle Pines, Castle Pines Golf Club, Red Hawk in Castle Rock, Bear Dance in Larkspur, and Lone Tree Golf Club all within a few miles. The best golf courses around. Fishing, boating, and swimming are also only 20 minutes away at Chatfield Reservoir.
Is shopping in your future? Try being 10 minutes from the #3 attraction in Colorado, The Castle Rock Outlet Mall. Get unbelievable deals and shop to your heart's content. Maybe you love to gamble. Blackhawk and Central City have some amazing historic casinos, but also features the new Ameristar Casino that gives you the feel of Vegas. They are only an hour scenic drive from your best vacation spot ever!
Ok, winter wonderland adventurers, want to talk skiing? Again, you've come to the right spot. Colorado has the most amazing ski resorts around and they are closer than you think. Loveland is but a 30 minute drive, and Breckenridge you can reach in less than 90 minutes. To take in the full scope of the beautiful Rocky Mountains, you can drive further to Aspen, Vail, Steamboat Springs, and many more.
You will be centrally located between Denver and Colorado Springs, offering excellent Colorado History opportunities, or take in the nightlife. Catch a professional Bronco's Football game while you're here at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Only 45 minutes. We also offer Rockies Baseball games at beautiful Coors Field, or Avalanche Hockey and Nuggets Basketball tickets at The Pepsi Center. Take the light rail that will drop you off right in front of you destination, only 25 minutes away.
There is truly something for everyone here in Colorado, but if you are looking to just hang out and relax for your dream vacation, then there is plenty to do on this 35 acres.

Finding this listing and the immediate response from the owners started a great experience. The location was perfect! Right outside of Castle Rock, convenient to restaurants, the Outlets for shopping and the interstate. The beautiful drive to the home couldn't even prepare you for the spectacular view from the property. Lots of wildlife sightings, breathtaking day and night views; very relaxing and spacious. Our family enjoyed the pool table, hot tub, outdoor grill, basketball goal, shooting range, walks and relaxing on the deck. Not to mention all the space indoors - to be able to house 7 people and at times not even know where people are... You could go to an area, read a book and have peace and quiet. A very relaxing experience! The home is absolutely gorgeous with lots of entertainment and comfort. The decor and furnishings are very nice! The home was clean and furnished with all the necessities. We spent lots of time in the kitchen and large dining table. Eating, playing games, telling stories around the fire pit under the stars. Words or pictures really can't totally explain the beauty offered by the home and property. All the above plus the exceptional hospitality offered by the owners from beginning to end made a truly magical experience for our family. We would recommend this property to anyone and definitely plan to return in the future. A special thanks to Cindy & Gary for their hospitality and contact during the arrangements and stay. Their hospitality to our family was touching and we cannot thank them enough for sharing their amazing home. Melissa - Tennessee
We own a CrossFit gym and had the 2012 Southwest Regional Games in Castle Rock. We brought our whole team down to stay at the ranch for 3 nights and 3 days! I am certain that our stay is different than most but we had an awesome stay, the views are amazing and the house is beautiful! There is MORE than enough sleeping room, and places where you can get away if you need to. WE did a lot of cooking and eating, so the two kitchens were perfect! The taxidermy is amazing, I think at one point we tried to count them all...but failed :) We enjoyed dinners on the back patio, and hot tub time watching the sunset. Cindy and Gary were awesome and anything we needed was provided with warmth and hospitality! We would highly recommend staying here is you are looking to get away, but still be close to the city. We were not able to use the firepit or enjoy the horses but I can only imagine this would add to anyone's stay! If we ever head back to the area we will return for sure!

We're delighted to be amongst your first guests! Sunrise coffee in the hot tub was an excellent suggestion; likewise winding down after riding! I am stunned by the taxidermy - this is one of the most memorable, unique homes I've ever been in! Best wishes and continued success! Tai, Chicago
My wife and I had a wonderful time at the property. The sunrise view in the morning was spectacular. The house had everything we needed to have a peaceful and enjoyable stay. My wife (the active one) was able to get horseback riding lessons on site. I (the couch potato, er..... I mean intellectual, contemplative type) was able to sit on the very comfy couch, watch the views and read, and utilize the satellite TV and internet which both worked great. The outdoor hot tub was also a nice feature. Probably most importantly, the owners were very conscientious folks who went out of their way to make us feel welcome. They stayed readily available by phone or email for questions, and they did many other little things (like making sure the outdoor fire pit was ready to light with a single match). We'd recommend the place to anyone. Brandon, Chicago
Thank you for having us at your lovely home! The hot tub was great, and having the fire outside was great fun! Thank you for having the fire pit all set up; it was a treat to only have to light a match and nothing beats a massage after horseback riding. Cell service and wi-fi were good too! Thanks again! Kristy (Chicago)
We've had a wonderful visit, thanks to your thoughtfulness and hospitality, and for your wisdom in creating a perfect retreat in a gorgeous setting! It has been a relaxing and active long weekend, with lots of laughter and fun, along with bragging rights claimed in pool, age shown with some basketball and huge smiles flashed! Thanks for helping make my Mom's birthday so special. Joyce
What a location to celebrate my wife's birthday. The hospitality was way beyond expectations. Your attention to detail for your guests created a marvelous weekend. Thank you! Fred
