The Ranch is quite beautiful. Federico has done a wonderful job to create a very peaceful environment. We arrived just before sunset and climbed to the top of what I call “The Eagles Nest”. It was a breathtaking sight. We did not spend much time on the property except in the evenings. The pool and hot tub were closed for the season and we did not have a chance to try out the sauna. The Chalet itself is quite comfortable and cozy with a beautiful rock fireplace to sit and enjoy. We enjoyed coffee on the front porch in the morning with the fantastic view, and found time for star gazing in the evenings. About “Living Off the Grid”: I don’t believe everyone fully understands what this means. It means you are not hooked up to city utilities. The only source of power is a generator, which means you can’t have every power sucking modern day electronic running all at the same time. Be mindful of your energy and resource consumption and all is well. We did have a couple of times our first night when the power went out for a few minutes until Federico had things up an running again. Be aware the generator is OFF during sleep hours. This means once the tankless water heater is out of water, there is no water until the generator is turned back on in the morning. This isn’t a big deal. We enjoyed our stay and the beauty of the location. Our only wish was that we had more time to hang out on the property and get to know Federico a bit more.

Response from Federico:
Just to underline the specific that there is plenty of water also during the sleep hours. The indoor tank has 40 gallons capacity enough to use the bath till the morning. Power went off due to a fuse to be changed thing that happens once a year. Even off grid the chalet is providing the power you need being in the middle of the forest, including the full service of the hot tub and sauna. It is clear that if you arrive here with TV, stereo, play station, and more, this is not your place. People choose this place to plug off and relax not the other way around.

This place is beyond beautiful and peaceful. The fire waiting for us was amazing. Make sure you show up as early as possible to make full use of the place. There is a watch tower with a beautiful view out front. The pool is not heated, and the hot tub/ sauna run on a generator so Frederico has to turn them on and they've got some special rules because of the altitude (just message him and he'll explain). The place is like your own retreat. Well worth it!

Response from Federico:
Miranda the back to back use is a safety rule issue. You can not do it at 9.000 feet people can have heart failure. But you could have had either the sauna or the hot tub any time you wanted. I have plenty of people doing it in the middle of the night. They just ask!

You are not just getting a place to stay, rather a resort with many facilities. While we did not use them because time did not allow, we will consider renting it just for that. Federico did everything he could to meet our needs, as we are very quiet we had little interaction. This is an off the grid facility and when you understand how it works, then it is very easy. Mille Grazie Federico

Marc thanks a lot. There were plenty of fresh dish rags in one of the kitchen drawer. Next time just ask. I throw them in the trash every other client to my standards.

If you're looking for a completely relaxing escape with the best of Colorado's nature all around, this is your place. You get a private, beautiful, rustic cabin with a pool & hot tub & amazing views of multiple 14,000ft peaks all to yourself. While "off the grid" the house provides all everything you could want for an unplugged mountain getaway - great beds, great bathroom, full kitchen, a great fireplace with leather couches, & many outdoor relaxing/site seeing options. Federico is an incredible host - we came here to honeymoon & recharge after busy wedding week. Federico stays on the land & will provide as much or as little interaction as the guest would like. Federico gave us an amazing experience, from preparing us the hot tub, to giving us recommendations for an excursion (sand dunes), to cooking us a 6 course gourmet meal with excellent wine pairings. While we had all of the romantic time we needed, we had a brilliant time conversing with Federico and invited him to sit with us and finish our wine. He was such a great host we felt like we made a friend in the end. We are already planning to come back to Dolomites Ranch for quick weekend getaways that can either prove to be full of adventure (ski, hike, lake, dunes) or completely serene & peaceful....or a stay here can provide the perfect balance of both. Great value, great service, great property/accomodations. Just a few notes for future visitors: 4 wheel drive is a must & grab some snacks/drinks before you arrive as neighboring towns are 20 min. Prepare for a great time.

This rustic getaway is great for anyone looking to escape the city life and cozy up with a loved one! Federico was very communicative prior to our arrival to make sure we arrived safe and sound!

Federico is an outstanding host. He was extremely thorough in aiding navigation to the cabin, he was able to provide detailed advice about surrounding attractions and was incredibly attentive as to our level of comfort within the cabin; even having set up a stretch within the best sauna I have experienced. Ultimately he provided excellent accommodation. Five stars.
