When one thinks of the holidays in Colorado, they imagine a warm log home surrounded by pine trees with loved ones nestled inside. Scents of honey baked ham and cranberry waft through the rafters as fire places blaze. Family and friends’ laughter resound while playing board games and charades as snowflakes cascade outside the foggy window panes. When someone pictures the perfect holiday getaway, they are picturing Lazy Bones Ranch.
Lazy Bones Ranch is a private scenic retreat just minutes from Denver. It lends itself as a perfect location for a secondary home or as a primary residence to entertain family and friends.
The property has a 7,500 square foot magnificent log home with room for numerous guests from every generation, as well as a mother-in law apartment with completed kitchen, bathroom and bedroom.
The scene at the ranch is reminiscent of those described by Frost or Dickens. Large ponderosa pine and douglas fir tower over the blanket of snow as you drive up the main drive. As you wind your way through grassy meadows, you reach the main home in a forest clearing surrounded by the Pike National Forest. Lazy Bones Ranch’s adjacency to National Forest makes it perfect for winter sports. One can strap on snowshoes or cross country skis to explore the surrounding trails or saddle up the horses for a walk.
If one would rather not face the snow, they can also cozy up to the grand wood burning fireplace at the center of the home in the two story great room with 22’ ceilings while snow falls outside the numerous large bay windows.
The heart of a home is in the kitchen. Meals for your family and friends are prepared in a six burner plus griddle Wolf stove big enough for honey baked hams, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and chocolate laden desserts.
Unlike other rural getaways in Colorado, Lazy Bones Ranch is ready and accessible for all of one’s loved ones. Although the property gets plenty of snowfall, it is accessible year round and only a short drive from Denver. Friends and relatives from out of state will be able to fly into Denver International Airport and reach the property within 1.5 hours.
Lazy Bones Ranch is your perfect year-round escape.
