Our cabin, in a rural, agricultural setting with valley and mountain views, has easy access to Glenwood Springs (15 miles) and Aspen (55 miles). Outdoor acvities abound. In addition, nice restaurants are located in nearby New Castle (3 miles).

The space

Our log cabin is a private 1300 square foot guest house which we designed and built ourselves. The antique furnishings are from my childhood home in Missouri. With two bedrooms, two baths, fully furnished kitchen, living room, and laundry, it is a perfect retreat for a girls' getaway or family retreat. The upstairs bedroom has a queen bed, a single bed, and a single foldout couch. Adjoining is a bathroom with a shower. Downstairs is a bedroom with a brass double bed and a single bed. The living room couch folds out into a comfortable queen bed. Relax in the clawfoot tub in the downstairs bath. Enjoy the ambiance of the gas fireplace in the living room.

Interaction with guests

We are usually available in person since we are retired and live on the property and are always accessible by cell-phone. If you like, we would love to meet you and hear about your travels.

A PERFECT spot to explore the Western Slope from. We stayed at Margo and Howard's over labor day weekend and absolutely loved it. Their attention to detail and comfort is unsurpassed. Seriously, they thought of EVERYthing. The beds, bedding, towels etc are all so soft and comfy. Fully equipped kitchen - we cooked breakfast every morning. We stayed with our 3 and 5 year old and they loved exploring around the property while we sipped our coffee on the porch in the morning. We chatted with Margo and Howard every morning before we headed out and they are just the sweetest, most caring, accommodating people. From this spot we spent a beautiful day at Rifle Falls and another beautiful day driving the Fruit & Wine Byway in Palisade and exploring Grand Mesa. Stay here! You'll love it! We plan to be back. :)

The Peach Valley Retreat is such a special place! My husband and I stayed for our anniversary and we could not have chosen a more perfect getaway. From the personalized chalk board note and flowers upon arrival, to Margo's delicious muffins, all the little touches at the cabin surpassed our expectations. The cabin was spotless and very well appointed. We cooked all but one of our meals there and wanted for nothing in the kitchen. How can one house be so spacious and so cozy at the same time? We kept thinking about how perfect the space would be for our whole family including our three kids. The pictures don't really do justice to the obvious meticulous care Howard put into the building of the cabin. They also can't reflect the beauty of the many antiques that decorate it or the amazing views from all of the windows. The bed in the loft was super comfy. We loved having the fire pit (even though we ran out of time to build a fire), the sweet little porch and chair swing, and the dart board. The location was (URL HIDDEN) close to all the great activities in Glenwood Springs and surrounding areas, but away from the crowds and construction. We planned to head out early our first day there, but then changed our minds because we really just wanted to spend more time at the cabin. Margo and Howard are just phenomenal people, so welcoming and down to earth. We can't wait to come back with the whole family.

We so appreciate your articulate and beautifully written comments. You also win the "Peach Valley Retreat" Review award! Please return soon with your 3 kids for a family getaway - dart contests and marshmallow roast!

Margo and Howard are terrific hosts and were extremely helpful on our arrival and during our stay. The cabin is clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated, and feels like a home. The drive into Glenwood Springs takes about twenty minutes, but is just a few minutes into Silt where there are restaurants and coffee shops. You're also midway between GS attractions and Meeker, so if want to explore trails and parks all around the area you won't find a better option than Margo and Howard's place. And their dog Kona is super friendly and a joy!

A lovely cabin with inviting hosts. I myself host an Airbnb and I got some great tips for my own place. They have thought of everything you might need for a stay. The extras i.e. condiments etc. saved us money as well. I respect what they have accomplished. We will be back. Thanks for the terrific time.

We have enjoyed the "country Life" in Peach Valley since 1978. Here we have (at various times) raised vegetable gardens, angora rabbits, goats, geese and ducks, sheep, cats (too many), chickens, and Australian Shepherds (6), and our son who is now a professional musician in Nashville. Now we have one sweet old cat are on our 6th Aussie. We still have chickens. You will hear our rooster crow in the morning. Also, the train whistle is quite likely sounded by our other son, the engineer. All part of the rural ambiance.
