Turkey Rock Retreat is a beautiful mountain home with spectacular views of Turkey Rock and the Rocky Mountains beyond. Turkey Rock Ranch Estates is a community named for the dramatic red rock formation that sits high above its valley. The area is well known to technical rock climbers. It is located one hour from Colorado Springs, two hours from Denver and Breckenridge and a scenic drive to over one hundred Colorado tourist attractions. Turkey Rock Retreat is perfect for all seasons. During the summer months hiking, fly fishing at Deckers, rock climbing and exploring the nearby Pike National Forest keep those who look for adventure busy. For those needing a restful vacation there are many options other than reading and bird watching, such as taking a drive in the gorgeous Rocky Mountains or shopping and wine tasting in the quaint nearby mountain town of Woodland Park. Regardless, the perfect way to end the day is settling in on the expansive deck enjoying the peace and quiet as the sun sets behind the mountains. Summer nights in Colorado can be cool so be sure to bring a sweatshirt so you’ll be comfortable as you take in the night sky and the constellations that shine bright at 8,500 feet. During the winter months temperatures vary. There have been days in December when the thermometer reads sixty degrees in the sunshine. But on the days when the temperature drops, the snow is falling and the valley below is a blanket of white the flames in the wood burning stove make for a day spent inside perfect. Knowing a warm fire and a cup of hot chocolate is waiting for you after sledding, snowshoeing or a long day of skiing fills the heart with happy anticipation. This beautiful mountain home truly is a retreat and the perfect getaway. It is situated on a cul de sac overlooking pine and aspen trees, Turkey Rock and the mountains beyond.
