As noted on the home’s AirBnb page, it’s “a place to ground, disconnect, and fully immerse yourself in the beauty that is Colorado. This plant-filled, handcrafted home is pure magic and unlike any other stay you’ve experienced and we are honored to share her with you.”
Plus, there’s plenty of space for exploring and recreation, with the home sitting on five acres of land filled with ponderosa pine and plenty of nearby trails to be found in the greater Black Forest area.
Prices vary by date, but seem to start at about $250 per night, plus taxes and fees. Note that there is a two-night minimum.
Past guests have called the home “stunning,” “beautiful,” and “a magical time,” also frequently complimenting the host and her responsiveness.
As one reviewer named Laney wrote, “I feel so lucky that we got to stay here! It’s such a unique experience that encourages you to disconnect and be present with those you’re with.”
