The master bedroom is equipped with a King bed with a Sleep Number mattress, a walk-in closet and an en suite all on the main level. Also on the main level are the kitchen, living room, laundry facilities and a 660 sq ft game room! The two bedrooms upstairs can sleep another 4 people, all on memory foam mattresses, while sharing another full bathroom on that level; One of the upstairs bedrooms also has a love seat, TV and gaming set-ups while the other one has another desk, book shelves and a ton more books; the game room has a queen sized futon plus a twin trundle bed which provides additional sleeping accommodations for 4 more people!

The game room also has a regulation sized pool table, treadmill, TV with DirecTV service, a stereo, a wet bar, gas free-standing wood stove-look fireplace for heating and ambiance, table and chairs for card games and board games, plus another refrigerator and microwave! It has access to the front of the home via a sliding glass door as well as access to the back of the home via a standard door. The cabinets are stocked with games, additional linens as well as additional kitchen supplies.

The office area has HughesNet satellite internet service with the Apple Airport wifi enabling device. Free local calling and free long distance calling anywhere within the continental United States is provided! It also has a commercial-grade printer, bookshelves with a ton of books in them. There is access to the deck and BBQ grills also through the office, which adjoins the dining room and provides easy access from the kitchen through to the deck. (There is a charcoal bbq grill/smoker on the deck next to the office and a gas grill on the deck to the front door.)

The living room boasts a 2-story rock wall as the backdrop to the free-standing wood stove. There is also a piano, large TV, also with DirecTV service, VCR, DVD player plus plenty of books, Videos, DVD's and CD's for you to read and enjoy during your stay.

Pets are allowed with prior approval, additional deposits and additional nightly fees apply. Please call or review our Standard Rental Agreement. for more details. All 2 acres are fenced with field fencing (2'x6' at the bottom up to 6'x6' at the top - not suitable for the small dog breeds and cats can easily go through it). There is a large 4'x8' dog house in the back yard, as well

I do own the lot next door, as well, where there is additional national forest access, as well as additional hiking in the immediate vicinity of the home. It, too, is fenced in with the same fencing described above. (I plan to build another home on that lot sometime in the future, as well.)

Please note that the VRBO website does not allow individual fees and discounts to be added to their "Rates" page (it assumes all fees and discounts are applicable to all renters, which isn't the case) so please note:

1. I do charge $25 per night per person in excess of 13 people (but no children 2 and under are not counted),

2. I do charge a $250 pet deposit and a $25 per night per pet fee,

3. There is a boat deposit of $500 and a daily use fee of $100. The Colorado Parks and Wildlife requires all people that may be driving the boat to take a test to ensure knowledgeable people only are driving boats on their lakes.

4. I do offer a 10% discount for active and retired military, law enforcement, first responders (including EMT's and fire fighters) and Emergency Managers. Proof of profession is required and you must ask for this discount at the time the reservation is made.

Notes:
This property is great for family reunions! With sleeping accommodations for 10 (in beds and futons) with another inflatable queen sized bed for 2 more and an abundance of outdoor space to pitch a tent or two or three, or park another RV in the driveway, multiple families can enjoy each other all in one location at a fraction of the cost of hotel accommodations! Since this home is also my primary residence, for smaller parties, individual room rates can be made available in lieu of occupying the whole house. Call for more details. ALL Events, such as wedding events and extremely large family reunions that will cause overflow of people beyond my own accommodations MUST BE approved ahead of time! Home is on a well and septic system and the county has permit requirements for specific events and sizes.
