Had the BEST experience at The Marble House! From the beginning, communication was easy and efficient. Directions to the house were detailed and spot on! Upon arrival, we knew exactly what to do per directions shared by Lynn. This camping experience was a great balance of camping and glamping! There is access to a great communal kitchen with appliances and utensils you can use or enjoy the space to warm up if it's cool at night. There are a number of different sites on their property but you still feel very much like you have your own area and we didn't see others in/at/from our actual site. Each site has its own individual toilet tent as well with a small camping toilet in it, they provide wipes, sanitizer, TP, baggies, a small garbage can, etc. etc. Gorgeous property, pond on property, river on property (we camped right next to it) mountain views with a waterfall (also audible which was peaceful). Overall GREAT experience, 10/10 would recommend to a friend!

The pictures do not do justice to the beauty of this place. There are several little wonders with this land: the Crystal River, the private lake, and the surrounding mountains are all such a pleasure to wake up to each morning. The host, Lynn, and her family were wonderful. This was the most hospitable stay we have ever had! I would recommend this spot to anyone looking to visit Colorado and also plan to return each time I visit the area.
