Host

My husband and I just recently moved to Colorado from Texas. We enjoy everything about the outdoors- riding our atv, going on jeep rides, kayaking, hiking, skiing and even some fishing. Our dream was to own a church retreat center, but when we found this big beautiful cabin in one of our favorite places in Colorado we knew it was meant to be. We love hosting church groups, family reunions, fishing and ski groups, and quilt/ craft retreats. Our favorite part about managing the cabin ourselves is meeting all of the wonderful people that have come here from all over the world and sharing stories with them and giving them ideas of what to do while they are here. We look forward to meeting you and your group!
