Staying at Somah's home for Just over two weeks was fantastic. Somah is so warm and welcoming as are her sons. The house is bright, beautiful and so clean. My room was perfect from a super comfy bed and linens to support closet space. I had an enormous walkout basement besides my room and very lovely private bathroom. Outside of sliding doors was a quiet scenic stone outside area. The location of Somah's home Is wonderful. It's super easy to find, scenic and quiet with absolutely wonderful walking trails. I will definitely bring my family to stay at Somah' s home on our next stay in Castle Rock.
Tracy was a simply gracious, smart, personable and interesting host. I could go on about her world travels, keen insights and talents in yoga, skating, health, etc., but that's not why we originally chose to stay there. I have a wife, two teenagers and even three dogs! We were all accommodated, had a great time, and REALLY enjoyed the peaceful surroundings, only 20 minutes to the Denver Tech Center where I'm working. We had three rooms, a refrigerator, access to the kitchen and deck, etc. Thank you so much for a great stay... don't know how it could have been better. Thanks Tracy!
