The home includes a private master suite on the main level with an ultra-comfortable king size bed, private deck with a two person hot tub, and a large master bathroom with heated floors and a huge walk in shower. The upstairs loft has a very comfortable queen sized bed, with a closet and armoire. Guests in the loft typically share the master bathroom for bathing, though there is a powder room available as well. All the beds are made with high quality designer linens and pillows. On the main floor you will find a truly awesome and well equipped gourmet kitchen with all the bells and whistles that every cook will love, plus a large dining area, great room and beautiful rock fireplace. Off the kitchen is a wonderful library with a large movie collection and an assortment of books for your enjoyment. You will also find wireless internet, and a 55” flat screen TV with surround sound.
Our large deck is the perfect outside space with beautiful mountain views and screened in gazebo with a double hammock, perfect for lounging in the treetops.
On the lower level there is a large separate studio (not accessible from main house) which we've recently remodeled (June '14) to include a king sized bed and double futon couch. Cozy and light-filled, the studio also features a private entrance, beautiful rock, wood burning fireplace, a full bath, and a private deck. The Studio serves as a second, private master suite, making Five Peaks very flexible – two friends can each have a private bedroom suite with full baths, two couples can each enjoy a private suite, or larger groups can sleep two in the semi-private loft with queen sized bed, up to four in the Studio, with the king sized bed and comfy double futon, and two in the master suite. The Studio is never rented separately from the main house ensuring privacy for you and your party.
