Live your Rocky Mountain high at 9000 feet, while overlooking spectacular views of the Continental Divide. This beautiful, mountain home is in the perfect location to enjoy all of the best that Colorado has to offer. Enjoy the snow-capped views, amazing sunsets, crackling fire, and shooting stars under a clear night sky. Spot native wildlife including hummingbirds, chipmunks, deer, and an occasional elk or moose. This mountain getaway is perfect in any season for adventurous travelers. Escape the summer heat to the cool mountain air, or soak up the tranquil winter beauty of blanketing snow.

PLEASE READ THE FINE PRINT CAREFULLY:
- If you bring more guests than you requested in your reservation you WILL BE evicted with no refund (sorry to be harsh about this but we have to be 100% accurate with our occupancy to maintain our rental permit, and our septic system).
-You will need a 4WD, high clearance vehicle October- May, and a comfort level with mountain driving to get to our remote home. If severe snowstorms are predicted, you will need to park above the house on a parking pad, and walk 50 yards down the driveway. Boots are needed.
-The house is at 9000 feet. Services are not always readily available, we get up to 500 inches of snow, there are no hotel type amenities, and it is a regular home, so things can break or go wrong unexpectedly. Cell phones often don't work, and we don't have cable TV or Netflix- this is a vacation for those who want to unplug. There may be dust on the ceiling fan, or ashes in the fireplace. If these are the kinds of things that will bother you, this is probably not a good fit.
-This is not a 5 star hotel experience. Reviews have a significant impact on our listing, and we want to make sure that you are fully informed so that we can provide a 5 star vacation experience.

---How far to Golden Gate State Park?
6 miles/15 minutes
---How far away are the neighbors?
The house looks pretty much straight out towards the mountains. If you stand outside in front of the house, you can see 2 homes farther down the mountain about 150 yards. One is occupied full time, and the other is a vacation home. There is also a home on the other side of our driveway, about 100 yards from our home. There is a house further up the mountain that can be partially seen, depending on where you are standing outside. We have a fairly long drive, and it feels private.
---Can I bring my dog?
Sorry, no pets.
---Will it snow?
Often. Sometimes way more than other times and the driving can be challenging.
---Does the house have air conditioning?
No. Even on the hottest summer days, it cools off at night.
---How are the driving conditions?
It depends on the weather. Our neighborhood has hard packed dirt roads, and we have a paved driveway. One mile of the drive up the mountain is fairly steep. A 4WD high clearance vehicle is definitely needed in winter November-March, but we can have large dumps of snow as early as October and as late as May. Early and late snow melts fast and is easily plowed, but can cause travel delays.
---Does the house have cable, Netflix, TV plug in for more watching options....?
No. Colorado has endless, amazing outdoor options, and we love to wear ourselves out during the day, disconnect from all of the electronics, and enjoy the hot tub, fireplace or fire pit, grilling out, and playing games in the evening. There is a large TV and DVD player for an occasional movie night.
---Is there Wi-Fi?
Yes, but we have the basic package with limited data, so plenty for researching local trails, checking email, etc. but not enough for video streaming/movie watching. Again, we go there to unplug.

Tour of the house:
