My place is perfect to rent for a vineyard crawl! It's located across from Stone Cottage Cellars, and equidistant between Azura and Terror Creek Winery. It's also very close to downtown Paonia, to pick-your-own orchards, and hiking galore. It has fantastic views and is built amid a grove of 100 ft cottonwood trees. It gets amazing light and is so cozy with the wood-stove. It's good for couples, (2) friends or a solo adventurer.

The space

The home is a real treasure, hand built by a Paonia local. We call it "The Tree House" and it is so uniquely one of a kind. There are 100 wild turkeys that roost in the tall, tall tree boughs just outside the windows. At about 4:30 pm they take flight and settle for the night in the boughs. It's very peaceful. Additionally, the pasture to the left of the driveway is home to grazing Yaks! It's really a country experience to stay here. The home is well lit and south facing, and in the morning you can sit in a pool of light and play the old piano, or have breakfast on the sunny porch.

Guest access

The main floor, including kitchen, bath, living room, king bed, as well as the 2nd floor library. Please note: The basement is not included in the rental.

Interaction with guests

I am always accessible by phone to help or troubleshoot, or advise activities. I am available for check in and to show you the space, but I recognize that this rental is ideal as a couples retreat and your privacy and ability to unwind is important to your stay. Sometimes we take the opportunity to travel when we get bookings, and other times my partner and I stay in a mother-in-law cottage on the 1 acre property. In these circumstances we give you total privacy, but are nearby should you need something!

Other things to note

This is a low water use household, so I ask that guests be consciousness about their water use. In other words, please don't just leave the sink running!

- The house is on a limited water supply - it has to be delivered - so I ask that you be thoughtful about your water use.
- the bed can be either one twin, two twins, or one king (with a very thick and wonderful mattress topper.) I need to know how you would like it made up. It's very comfortable and I've had great feedback about it!
- The house has one room I keep locked and off limits, and the basement is not included in the rental.

The house is beautiful and in a great location - walkable to some delicious and scenic wineries! Just a few minute drive into the town of Paonia. It was absolutely perfect for us! Gabrielle was such a great host. I'd absolutely recommend this spot for your stay in Paonia. You can't beat the location/scenery!

Lovely home in a beautiful town. The house is very quiet and peaceful. Quick access to 2 very nearby wineries and a short drive into downtown Paonia. We really enjoyed our time there.

It's a beautiful home secluded on top of a mountain. Very close to 3 amazing wineries which we visited. I enjoyed a very relaxing few days and Paonia is an adorable town! My only heads up is there is limited cell service and no wifi at the home. But if you're looking for a secluded retreat even better!!

Response from Gabrielle:
Thank you, Lindsay, for staying with us! I enjoyed meeting you, and hope your travels home were safe! Just for those reading and considering booking, would like to clarify two things so folks know what to count on when booking: We are 3 miles from town center, it takes about five minutes, while the home itself is in fact very private and does boast a great view! On our listing does specify that there is no Wi-Fi, however, most cell service providers do get full service at our location. Verizon, Cricket, and ATNT all work very well, for example. There is Wi-Fi in town at the cafés and library!

Gabrielle's place was wonderful! The house and surrounding area were just beautiful! Her home is quiet and private, but not too far from town. We would definitely recommend her place to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.
