Mountain modern home in the middle of the Rocky Mountains! Our solar array of 36 panels helps make this off grid home feel like you're living on the grid, just powered by clean energy. We are located at 9,200 feet, 25 minutes from Vail and 25 minutes from Leadville on dry roads, yet easily accessible with a short private driveway to access the house off of HWY 24. The perfect location for a true Colorado mountain family retreat! Endless outdoor activities right out your back door.

The space
This passive solar heating home was originally built in 1985, and was recently remodeled down to the studs in 2017. It is surrounded by national forest land, and is the only private property of its kind for miles to the East/West. In the winter, there is endless snowshoeing available and direct access to the backcountry of Vail Pass for snowmobiling or cross country/backcountry skiing. The closest ski resort is ten minutes away and one of the most affordable resorts in the area, Ski Cooper, an ideal location for beginners on a budget. We are also 25 mins from Vail Mountain for the more advanced skiers who want the best skiing our nation has to offer.

In the summer, you have access to more hikes than you could complete in a week within a 30 minute drives in either direction from the house. Or just hike around the property, exploring the abandoned railroad tracks, mining caves, creek, and small pond behind the house. Bring your bikes, ATVs, hiking shoes, and be ready to explore some of the most beautiful mountain terrain you will find in Colorado, all at a cool climate being close to 10,000 feet. Our large private deck is great for relaxing after a long day of playing outdoors, both in summer and even in winter as the house faces due south for some powerful sunlight especially in winter until 4-5pm.

Where you’ll be

Red Cliff, Colorado, United States

We are in the middle of the White River National Forest, 7 minutes from the nearest small town of Red Cliff. Red Cliff has a small liquor store, restaurant (Mangos), and convenience store. Nova Guides is 1.5m from the house and rents snowmobiles in the winter, ATVs and Side by Sides in the Summer.

The next closest town is the town of Minturn, 15 minutes away, with a couple of small restaurants.

For full grocery stores and such, we are equally close to the resort of Vail (to the West) and the historical town of Leadville (to the East), both 25 mins away from the house.

During your stay

We have an on site manager, Mark, who lives in the lock off apartment attached the house to assist you with any needs. This lock off apartment has a private entrance and living quarters, so you won't be sharing any parts of the house indoors with the caretaker. That said you might hear him washing dishes if you're out in the indoor porch area that connects the two units with a shared wall. Galen, the host, lives 25 minutes away in the town of Avon. I love meeting guests at this special house, so let me know if you'd like to meet! Especially during COVID, Mark and I will keep our space from you unless requested. You'll only see us outside refilling the hummingbird feeders (a daily task), or tending to the other two airbnb tiny homes on the property.
