The Rocky Mountain Guest House was originally built on a two-acre lot by Ross and Lorna Uibel in 1978 where they raised their family of 6 children for 22 years. They sold their home after the kids were grown, but bought it back in 2017. It is an amazing 5,800 sq. ft. home with split levels and unique post-and-beam construction with 15-ft ceilings, making the rooms very open and spacious. All of the walls on the inside were freshly painted in 2018 and we are currently working on painting the outside and repairing the yard. These projects should be completed by July 2018. Sleeping accommodations include 6 bedrooms with 8 queen beds. We allow a maximum of 20 people with an extra charge per person for more than 16 people. (The extra people will have to bring their own bedding and mattresses.) When making the reservation there is a one-night deposit taken at the time of the reservation with the balance due when checking in. There is a minimum of 3 nights stay.
