Your mountain hermitage snugs among ponderosa pines and boulders, overlooking the Little Thompson creek. Deer pass by the glass walls of your living room and dining lounge. Your sandstone terrace promises an afternoon doze in the sun or a starlit soak in the hot tub.
Follow the steps down to the picnic table engulfed in the splendor of wildflowers beside the creek. The absolute silence is broken only by burble of water and zizz of hummingbirds. Squirrels squabble with nuthatches foraging at the feeders. The moderately high altitude intensifies the searing blue skies and crisp clean air, restoring and energizing body and soul.
Complete seclusion is yours in a queen-size bedroom with bath, dining lounge and living room with fireplace, and flagstone terrace with hot tub. Though the community is rustic and retiring, it is conveniently located between Boulder and Estes Park, Colorado at the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park.
