Super hosts..generous and attentive. Vast, very nicely appointed home with great views. Sky was sunny, air was dry, which was a treat for us. It is a “dark sky” location, for stargazers. This is a luxurious home, situated on a working cattle ranch, and they tour by. Location is well-positioned to drive less than an hour to enjoy Alpine nature. I particularly enjoyed fly fishing in the Arkansas River, which was both beautiful and accessible. Lake Isabel, also a pleasant day trip. Closer in, the town of Westcliffe (pop +600), has the essentials. We found two nice restaurants. Capacity and hours are limited. Westcliffe is an authentic Colorado working town, with few out -of -state plates. If you have a medical condition which might require immediate treatment, you should do due diligence. Very relaxing and unique experience…would look forward to next visit.”
Wildcat Ranch was a wonderful escape from the world for our family, and the hosts could not have been kinder or more accommodating. With stunning views of the Sangre de Cristo mountains, we enjoyed exploring the countryside as well as kicking back at the end of the day in the hot tub on the wrap around deck. We would happily return anytime!”
We absolutely loved our stay at Wildcat Ranch! The house is full of open seating, fun bar room, and 3 of 4 bedrooms have attached bathrooms. The incredible deck area provides hot tub, firepit, seating and views galore! The ranch is set near the beautiful Sangre de Cristo Mountains full of hiking and outdoor adventures. You will not be disappointed!”
