Technically we're not a ranch, but it sounds good in the name.
We're on narrow small-acreage (2.73 acres) property in a subdivision deemed "rural estates". We are on a good well with decent water pressure. A water spigot is available spring through fall. No shade at parking spot, but there's plenty of room for your awning. Our back patio is covered if you want to barbecue out of the sun. The side drive and front circular drive are fairly level, but one or two leveling blocks may be needed. Now that we've hosted a couple of folks in Class A's, we've come to realize that longer wheel base vehicles with auto level should be prepared with extra leveling blocks, as there is a bit of a sudden slope. No tree cover or branch hazards. Our driveway is poured concrete but the side-drive is recycled/crushed asphalt. A 20 amp outlet is available about 40' away from the parking spot and a heavier duty cord is suggested to minimize line-loss.
Inverter-type generator use between 10AM and 3PM only. No industrial "open frame" generators, please. The lots in this area are somewhat narrow so our wonderful next door neighbor is within a hundred feet.
Quiet hours are 8PM to 9AM.
We are still working on our new fence configuration in our yard, but the unfinished section is blocked by affixed but temporary fencing and you will be allowed to let your dog have free range of our mostly sod covered yard. You must clean up after your pet(s).
Please don't arrive after 8PM or before 7:30AM.
And yes, we are in Colorado and have no problem with recreational or medicinal smoking, but we ask that if you're 420, please remain in your trailer with it. The same with cigarettes. Thank you. With that being said, we have a grill on our back patio and usually enjoy sharing a meal with our guests if our schedules align. Cocktails or a cold beer or glass of wine is not out of the question.
Paved streets in rural estate subdivision with very little grades. The opening in our front fence might seem tricky to some. We have a circular driveway, but that would only be for short vehicles like popup campers, small Class Cs, Class Bs or teardrops. Our side drive can take larger vehicles but that surface is crushed asphalt. Both the main driveway and the side drive are fairly level.
We're on small acreage in a subdivision without special covenants. We have a crushed asphalt side-drive with a concrete approach. Because this drive is used by us on occasion, we ask that you please don't block it when you park.
We host a lot of family and friends in our little part of the paradise known as Colorado. We do some traveling ourselves, so our availability is variable. Our house sitter will be unable to assist you, therefore we've blocked out certain dates for those two types of situations.
Also, if you need more than our stated maximum, please ask. Sometimes our personal schedules allow longer stays and more than once, our guests have added days, so feel free to ask us.
~The Lost Leopards~
Barr Lake State Park and the Wild Animal Sanctuary are each about 8 miles away (although in opposite directions.) There are both fine dining and fast food restaurants available nearby. We are north from Denver International Airport.
We are so grateful that they could accommodate us for the second time in such a short period. Our dogs absolutely love running around their yard. This was my far the nicest people we stayed with !!!
This was by far the best boondocks we stayed at !! We have two dogs and they were so friendly about using their yard. They even offered to let us use their grill!! Friendliest people I have met !! I would 100% recommend them !! They hooked us up with electric and water and we stayed 3 days! Very quite community so not much noise at night. We hope to stay with them again before they are full timers.
We really enjoyed our stay at lost leopards. She greeted us when we arrived to show us where to park. They let our dogs play in their fenced back yard, which was awesome. We had dinner together 1 night, great conversation and food. She gave us a lot of ideas for places to explore with our Jeep. Maps, brochures and good directions. It was a great place to stay, we will go back if we are in the area again.
We enjoyed our stay with this great couple,they are easy going and friendly.
We shared talkes and dinner on thier porch.
Hope our paths will cross again.
Dave and Sue were so kind and welcoming towards us!! We even had dinner together a few times. They are so wonderful, and their home is a great place to stay in the Denver metro area.
Sue and Dave could not have been more welcoming and kind! Their place is about 25 minutes from downtown Denver and just a few minutes from the nearby state park. They even ran us electric to run our air conditioners on a hot summer day. Thanks so much guys!
We had a wonderful stay with Sue and David. The site was easy in/easy out, their place is in a convenient location to Denver Airport and downtown, and above all Sue and David were some of the friendliest people we've met in the BW system! Thank you so much for having us and we are glad to have met you :)
This is our second time staying here and it was lovely just like last time. Sue and David are great hosts and have been a huge help in our travels. Their property is away from the city but close to the airport which is a huge plus for us.
Their property is a perfect proximity away from everything but close enough to Denver for anything! They were sweet, very accommodating, and helpful. We would love to come back and stay the next time we are in the area!
Our hosts couldn’t have been friendlier or more helpful. The parking spot on the side of the house was fine and entrance was easy. We even got to see little foxes running around in the area behind the house. Hope we are able to stop by again.
Great couple who were super easy and fun to talk to. We arrived in the late afternoon and introduced ourselves.
We let our pup play a bit and we chatted and looked for the fox kits.
The next morning we worked and watched the wildlife play all around us. The stay was perfectly relaxing!
Sue and Dave have been great hosts. The interaction was easy and conversations were fun. The visit of their RV was impressive. The location is great, easy to find, easy to park and in a secure neighbourhood. Felt like home. Will certainly go back.
