This a no pet and no smoking home. Thanks for honoring that request.
There is an age requirement of 28 to rent
We lived for many years in Minnesota but always wanted to live in Colorado at some point in our lives. We now live and work in Denver but fully enjoy our time "up on the mountain".
The pace, the beauty, the adventures that we have at The Good Shepherds Lodge help us relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. We hope that, as our guests, you feel that way as well.
