Home away from home at The Inn at Riverwalk!

If you haven’t gotten the opportunity to stay at the newly renovated Inn at Riverwalk you are missing out! Nestled between the mountains and river in downtown Edwards, the Inn at Riverwalk is my go to hotel for a weekend getaway or inviting family in town!

Tastefully renovated from top to bottom, with a cozy mountain modern feel. It was so relaxing sitting in the hot tub as you hear the river running past! The lobby is warm and inviting, we cozied up next to the fireplace drinking mocha from the espresso machine and snacking on their DIY trail mix bar.

There is something for everyone in the family to do with its prime Riverwalk location. Shopping and dining, ski shuttle to Beaver Creek and Arrowhead, along with free snowshoes and sleds for the kids. Even bikes to take out in the summertime!

It felt like home away from home, and reasonably priced which is hard to come by in the valley! Looking to buy/sell a home in the area? I would love to go over your options with you! I can be reached at (720) 275-3186 or RealEstatewithHope@gmail.com!

On Monday-November 14th, you will be lucky enough to experience a front row seat to the largest Super Moon since 1948! A Super Moon or Perigee Moon appears to balloon up to 14% larger than an Apogee full Moon (traditional moon) and beams up 30% brighter!

November 25th, 2034 will be your next opportunity to witness this spectacular gift of nature, so be sure to savor this moment. The best way to see this interstellar stunner is in a dark, open area, but, if you would like to add some bigger then life illusions to your experience, catch the moon as it rises along the horizon! It will appear even more magnificent!

The moons’ peak will be at 6:52 am on Monday morning, not to worry, that does not mean that it won’t be brilliant that evening, you might even need to wear your sunglasses!

Moondance anyone….?

Redstone Castle

Redstone Castle is located in Redstone Colorado, just outside of Carbondale. Built in 1897 for John C. Osgood, this residency has seen it’s share of Colorado history. Teddy Roosevelt and John D. Rockefeller have enjoyed spending time at this beautiful, historical abode. The movie, ‘The Prestige‘ starring Michael Caine, Christian Bale and Scarlett Johansson was filmed at this location, as well!

The Castle remains essentially true to the original form from when it was assembled in 1897, and for that reason it is protected under the Colorado Historical Easement. This essentially means that only the furniture may be replaced. There are 42 rooms spread out over 24,000 square feet, along with 14 fireplaces for warmth. Beautifully designed Tiffany light fixtures adorn the custom motif of every uniquely created room, each with it’s own testament to a different country. A must see is the Gentlemen’s Game Room, so many rich, opulent stories to be told there!

This beautiful property is set for Auction on October 7, 2016, you must provide a minimum bid of $2,000,000.00 to throw in your hat. Good Luck!!

Lanternfest~Awesome!

Lanterns    Lantern1

This past weekend our Front Range Friends were enticed to take part in a beautiful Lantern Festival in Dacono on Saturday and Sunday nights! Live music provided amazing aviance and serenity as the glowing lanterns floated weightlessly…into the night sky! Lanterns are released for good fortune, hopes and dreams, but they can also provide a release of burdens, fear and regret. 

On May 20th, there will be two venues hosting Lanternfest in Colorado, one in Colorado Springs and the other in Pueblo. This should be a spectacular sight, stay tuned for more information!
