Our home was built with a lower level to accomodate our four children. We are now empty-nesters and share that space on AirBnB. You will be guests in our home with a private-entrance (your choice to mingle or not). Adding meals is negotiable.
This is run as an old-fashioned boarding house more than your customary Bed and Breakfast. We rent private bedrooms that offer a shared living/kitchenette/bath rooms for the exclusive use of guests. We can provide family-style meals for an extra cost. There is a full-size refrigerator, microwave and coffeemaker available in the guest kitchenette. There is no smoking anywhere in the home. If you choose to smoke outside, please be respectful ot the forest and "leave no trace". Quiet hours are between 10pm and 8am. There is a rambunctious Golden Retriever male on the premises, but guests may NOT bring pets and children should be supervised. We ask that you remove your shoes at the entryway (we have slipper socks for your use). And, please store your ski boots in the entryway as well. There is no maid service unless you are here for longer than one week. You are expected to keep things tidy during your visit for the comfort of everyone (cleaning the microwave, coffee pot, dishes, counter tops and table after your use). Plus, please wipe up the bathroom sinks, tub and toilet splatters after use as well (no one likes to see another's globs of toothpasts, make-up, hair, or your toilet and sink dribbles, etc.). We do deep cleaning after each guest departure and provide linens and towels for you. There is a separate entrance for our guests with a set of French doors to the owner's personal space. When the curtains are drawn we ask not to be disturbed. However, when the curtains are open, you are welcome to join us. If you have an emergency, please call our phone nos. at any time. We want you to feel at home during your visit and to enjoy the time spent in our mountain community, so we are here to assist you in any way. Please do not block double garage doors when parking.

We are semi-retired empty nesters who are parents of four near-perfect children and grandparents of 9. We live in beautiful Grand County, Colorado and love to share our mountain community with visitors. Our children grew up and went to school nearby. And although they consider themselves Coloradans, none of them live in state right now (what you have to do to for work and family). We built our family log home on 14 acres several years ago to accomodate everyone and now it's just us most of the time. Our kids were pretty surprised when they heard we were sharing their rooms with strangers! When we built there was only one neighbor within a mile and in all of Grand County (1800 sq mi).there was only a single streetlight! One night some folks actually set up their camping tent in our "yard". It's not quite like that anymore! Today, we have over 300 homes in that mile radius, but we STILL have our 14 acre "buffer" and it's peaceful here. BTW, there are at least 8 traffic lights in the county now and lots of talk about adding another. Doug and our neighbors fought the recent scourge of pine beetles and were rewarded with a healthy forest and abundant wildlife. Our home is situated peacefully "smack-dab" in the middle of the combined 30 acres and we've seen bear, fox moose, deer, coyote, pine marten, porcupine, racoons, squirrels, chipmunks, and marmots on our property.
Doug is a retired pilot turned bookkeeper/handyman/day laborer (that's the forestry part of his life) and he's a closet musician (I am the only one who gets to hear him play!).
I've worked mostly for the US Gov't. (Dept. of Defense, IRS, and US Post
Office). Now, I work wherever/whenever it's time. I'm the one who decided
to work as an innkeeper/maid at this point in our lives because "keeping
house" was what I most enjoyed and did pretty well.
We love music and attending the many outdoor summer concerts in beautiful Grand County as well as the frequent indoor shows all winter. We are long time members of the local Grand County Blues Society. We ride motorcycles (Roadstar for Doug and a V-Star for me). We built our home ourselves (with lots of help from great local sub-contractors and an Amish log crew from Montana). We enjoy golf, hking, and skiing together. I also like to garden. We especially enjoy having guests to our little peace of paradise.
After a career traveling by air (including hotels and restaurants) my husband dislikes it these days (and I'm raring to finally use our flying benefits!). If we go anywhere together, it's usually by car (with our Golden Retriever, Duke) or motorcycle.
We mostly let our guests decide how much they'd like to interact with us. Our spaces are separate and guests can come/go via their own entrance. If they'd like to jolin us, we have a french door for their access. Sometimes we can arrange for apres' ski wine and cheese before dinner or a pot of chili to share for an extra nominal fee.
Besides our Golden Retriever, we occasionally foster shelter puppies awaiting adoption via Mountain Pet Rescue.
Now....you know everything there is to know about us and whether visiting our mountain home for a few days sounds like something you'd like to do. If so, please ensure that your profile on AirBnB tells us enough about YOU so that we, too can be comfortable sharing our home. This site is growing so rapidly, that new people seem to be joining everyday and we are a community of people who are sharing our living spaces and we are not your ordinary business. Thank you.
