Labor Day at the Irish Rose without the Bears?
The Irish Rose is a very well maintained property, very clean, well stocked with necessary utensils, etc. and very well and "Colorado." The house was not quite as near to the river as we would have liked but a short hike and we were there. It was however very close to the road which was more well traveled than we had expected. It was interesting to read about and see some the history of the area. We were also looking forward to seeing the wildlife talked about in detail but I guess they had the holiday weekend weekend off. Except the beautiful rainbow trout in the the South Platte which we caught several (and released back for next time). All we saw were a few mule deer at a distance on the afternoon of our arrival. No moose nor bears. Maybe next time as the Irish Rose will definitely be on our return list. Thank you Rich and family for a great place to stay.
Everything was wonderful. The hot tub was well maintained under a beautiful night sky. The home was thoughtfully equipped with just about anything you could need. Kay, the caretaker, was kind, available and helpful. We loved the lemon poppyseed cake she left for us. It is just remote enough. We enjoyed lots of breweries in the area.
A True Mountain Get-Away
The description of this property is spot on! It's extremely remote location gives you privacy and spectacular views, including wildlife. The owners have strategically placed a salt lick in a field that can be easily viewed from inside the house. We woke up one morning and looked out the big wall of windows and saw mama moose and her baby grazing and another night we spotted the male moose in the timber. There are trails and lots of land to explore. The running water sounds of the nearby creek were spa-like and so relaxing! My husband was able to catch a few small trout in the steam as well.
The house had everything we needed. I was a bit hesitant about having someone living in the lower level but Kay ended up being a great blessing! The key wasn't in the box when we arrived (which is always alarming) but having her on location made getting into the house so easy. She was very helpful with advice on altitude sickness, local eating places, etc. when we approached her but otherwise, we hardly knew she was there.
The only drawback of this location was the high altitude. We all experienced some sickness, even with drinking lots of water. My advice would be to buy a portable bottle of oxygen and use it. They can be purchased at the Al-Mart in Alma, which is an awesome little store, by the way! And the South Park Saloon in Alma was one of our favorite places to eat, with burgers that are ground fresh daily, buttermilk battered fresh pickles and pizza made from homemade dough and fresh ingredients!
This location is also within driving distance of several places. We visited Breckenridge, Frisco, Fairplay, Buena Vista, Canon City and Royal Gorge. Overall, it was a really fun trip and a great lodging experience. I would highly recommend it for a family vacation!
Solitude and convenience
This is the place to get away from the daily grind. Lovely property with many areas around it to explore. We enjoyed hiking around and seeing the old mining operations, we panned for gold and had a memorable time. We built a sluice, named him "SLOUIE" and left him at the Irish Rose for future guests to use. We will definitely be returning again to make some more memories. Thank you so much.
Beautiful home, tranquil surroundings
Had a great time, quiet, peaceful. Surrounded by mountains, still capped with snow. We caught brook trout in the stream and saw the cow moose a her calf, the bull moose the next night👍�🏻�. Rich and his family have more movies than Blockbuster, lol
