      Pleasant place

      Greg has an awesome little cottage that is warm and homey nestled in the mountains out of town. It is also part of a really great property with a fire pit, outdoor kitchen, mountain lookout, swing set, and more. Check in and out was easy, it felt like home. Very creative and enjoyable spot. Thanks a bunch!

      5/5 Excellent

        Quaint and Quiet

        We enjoyed the space away from the buzz of the hot air balloon festival. The property was beautiful and I’m sure even more lovely in the spring and summer when everything is blooming. The casita itself is very snug and full of art and other decor. We were there for a very short stay so it was not bad for two people but might be a little tight for a longer stay of more than 1 person.

        4/5 Good

          Nice quite place

          Wish we would have been there earlier to see the sunset


            Balloon Fiesta

            Greg and Robbie were very sweet and overall the property is beautiful. Unfortunately the property did not meet our needs and we ended up leaving a little early.

              Private & Quiet - Lovely!

              Arrived easily at cottage because of super detailed directions from owner. Very helpful, as we were running late & got there after dark. Very quiet & secluded, I think peaceful is a good description. It was wonderful being able to bring our dog on the trip with us, her first road trip out of state. The only problem was we had a hard time trying to get her inside after walking the grounds. She loved all the sights & smells & didn’t want to go inside to go to bed. The cottage is small, but comfortable & all we needed. Bed was VERY comfortable & we slept like babies! Wish our mattress at home was this comfy!! Price was great & it was an extremely easy check-in & check-out. Husband did get to meet Gregory, the owner & said he was so friendly & easy going! All in all we enjoyed our quick one night stay & would definitely come again! We usually travel without our furry child, so next time would like to try one of the other units. Thank you for a quick & easy comfortable stay! Jim & Ruth Thomson & Miss Kitty!
