A place so picturesque....The Bachelor was here filming this season's "Meet the Parents" episode, The Weather Channel's 'Freaks of Nature' The Human Eclipse and Wasteland III, among other film shoots. This beauty has even been host to an Oscar winning director, best selling authors, celebrities and top of their game athletes/sports stars who use it to recharge and be inspired in their creative and training process. Even a billionare stayed here for a month!

Imagine arriving to a private mountain vacation home estate thru a long & winding quarter mile driveway ending at a large log cabin lodge atop a mountain that overlooks The Great Rocky Mountains. NO peek-a-boo views here! Full ON mountain range views from almost every window of the home and a thriving, diverse natural forest to explore. Space and privacy you just cannot get ANYWHERE else.

Having an event or having a bachelor or stag type stay? Meaning, not just a vacation type lodging stay....scroll to the bottom of this description for more and how we define events.

Enjoy the most AMAZING sunsets from your private enclave on top of the world with not a neighbor in site.

It IS one of the very FEW properties in the state you need NOT leave the property to enjoy your vacation! Great spot for extended family, corporate retreats, intimate weddings or reunions as Blue Sky Mountain Ranch is close to Denver International Airport, honestly the quickest way to unplug and enjoy nature and no crowds!
57 miles from Denver International Airport!

Take advantage of miles of hiking & biking immediately outside the door with a seasonal stream bed, hills, valleys, large rock outcrops, a diverse forest and flowery meadows. It will take you a week to explore this property. And if you stay longer, the Ranch adjoins national forest on it's entire Northern border, so you can enjoy even more exploring!

Blue Sky Ranch is so exclusive & private, you'll feel like you're the only humans on the planet and in one of the most serene and nature inspired settings most never see, totally lacking in any sense of the typical urban/suburban sprawl which is so common these days. On the other hand, you're in very close proximity to all the things one expects to do in Colorado.

*****Vacation Rental agreement (specific to this particular property) must be signed before the booking is considered confirmed by owners within 48 hours of booking thru this platform or guests will lose their reservation. VRBO's standard and general agreement does NOT cover this type of property. If you are a bachelor party, group of singles of stay, you must indicate this in your inquiry and we must speak with you prior to you "booking" the property. It's important that guests know we don't condone "partying" at this accommodation. If you wish to throw a party and drink heavily, this is not the accommodation for that. We accept only mature bachelor retreats who enjoy hiking and getting out in nature without that element.

There are additional fees if you invite day guests to the property or for certain type uses of the property. Booking the ranch for lodging thru "lodging platforms" never automatically includes usage of the ranch for any parties, day visitors of any kind, get-togethers, elopements, ceremonies, commercial retreats, commercial filmings or photo sessions, reunions, day guests, dinners or events etc. Those come at extra fees. Vendors, you may hire and invite to the property are at additional fees. Getting Married or Eloping on property comes at an additional fee.

Events: We define an event as "any" occassion which involves day guests, any kind of vendor you hire or any others visiting the Ranch outside of your lodging guests registered on your reservation. An event is a (1) day affair lasting 6 hours or less. Let us know what type of event you intend to have so we can properly quote you. This platform or any other platform only charges for lodging, no events or occassions as defined above are permitted without the addditional fees, policies, deposits and an additional "event" agreement.

For specifically weddings of any sort, there are two kinds with two different pricing structures:
1) The Elopement Package with obvious dramatic views and backdrops, makes it permissable to have a professional photographer on the ranch to record your event in a quiet mountain setting. This is our smallest package and is for a a max of you and your lodging party of up to 12 (no additional guests), ability to hold a "ceremony" somewhere on the ranch (we can point out the best spots for you). It also makes it permissable to bring a photographer, an officiator, and one other non-food vendor the day of, for your special occassion. Our vetted private chef service is also included for a 4 course celebration dinner/intimate reception to be held after your ceremony in this package. Inquire for pricing.

And 2) The full wedding package -If you wish to have more than your registered and permitted paid lodging guests of up to 12 and/or more than 3 vendors to the property for such an occassion or any occassion, you must inquire with your estimated guest/vendor count for quotation. Larger events are not permitted thru lodging platforms, but we do permit them with the proper package and requirements met. If you require a tour, that can be set up when no one is renting the property. The tour is $150 and is 90 minutes in duration and can be credited back to you if purchasing the full wedding package thru blueskymountainranch. Inquire for pricing.
VRBO is a "LODGING" Platform only. Events, On location film/photo shots or Reunions that include day guests and/or vendors are never included in the cost of lodging that this platform quotes you. If you do not input an accurate amount of guests into the platform, it will not quote you correctly. Be sure your guest count is accurate as adding guests over 8 in number later will result in additional charges.
