There was a lot of space both inside the house and outside, great cooking appliances and space in the kitchen with everything we needed, lots of board games available to play, very comfortable beds, lots of fresh air with beautiful views of the colorado mountains and landscape, extremely clean and well kept. The hosts were very helpful, kind and agreeable. Wonderful for either a short or long visit with family or just for a get away from reality to relax.
