Perfectly situated in the heart of the Crystal River Valley under towering red sandstone cliffs, this beautiful historic cottage is the perfect destination to get away and be immersed in nature. Built in 1893, this is one of the original homes for the historical coal mining town of Redstone. Beautifully restored with all of the conveniences of modern life, Redstone Roost has maintained its Victorian charm for over a century.
This unique mountain escape features 2 fireplaces, an expansive west-facing deck, and is located at the end of the road for privacy and seclusion. The three bedroom and 2 bathrooms offer a comfortable retreat for 6 guests after a long day of exploring all that the “Ruby of the Rockies” has to offer!
Exposed wood beams, cedar paneling and cozy furnishings give the living room a warm and inviting quality. A large wood burning fireplace in the center of the space brings warmth and is the perfect place to unwind after a long day of adventure. Windows throughout the home overlooking aspens and evergreens provide a bright, airy feel.
The well equipped kitchen is perfectly suited to whip up a meal for the family to be enjoyed near a second fireplace in the dining area. Both rooms boast views of the incredible red mountains that tower over the wooded landscape. In the warmer months, enjoy dinner or a glass of wine on the massive deck overlooking the town of Redstone and the Crystal River Valley.
A private main bedroom with a comfortable king bed and crisp linens, and a full bathroom can be found on the lower level. Upstairs, a soaking tub overlooks the bright foliage of the grounds. Additionally, there are two charming bedrooms with spectacular valley views. One is furnished with a queen bed and the other with two twins, perfect for children.
Throughout the grounds, relics of the past century can be found. The original #31 address marker, doorbell and even a historic outhouse are on display for fun family conversation! A trail at the end of the driveway heads north to connect with East Creek Trail which offers fantastic opportunities to view wildlife and experience the breathtaking Colorado landscape. Take a walk through the quaint town of Redstone and down to the Crystal River for an afternoon of fly fishing or skipping rocks under blue bird skies.
