This expansive compound—nestled between the town of Edwards, Colorado, Beaver Creek Ski Resort,—is fit for adventurous royalty. Dubbed Casteel Creek Retreat, the 439-acre property borders one-and-a-half miles of national forest and backs up to breathtaking open space, with 2 million acres of White River National Forest to keep even the most experienced outdoorsman entertained.
The home and various structures on the property are also stunning—from the modern-castle-like main residence to the 10-vehicle “car barn” and 25,000-square-foot, ranch-inspired recreation station. Oh, and did we mention the ice cream parlor?
Casteel Creek Retreat sits at the end of a scenic drive through mountain forest. Upon arrival, a 250-foot driving bridge leads to the main residence—a grand, 32,000-square-foot mountain modern home clad in copper, steel, glass, and stone.
A dramatic observation platform extends from the home, providing incredible views of the surrounding Rocky Mountain landscape.
The main house boasts eight en suite bedrooms, multiple elevators, a home theater, ice cream parlor, and a swimming pool with a nearby hot tub, exercise facility, and spa. The home’s rustic interiors boast finishes like imported flamed Vyara granite and exotic marbles and woods from around the world.
A large circular driveway is framed by a modern-ranch-inspired “car barn,” a 10-car garage that holds a snowmobile, snow cat, and any other vehicles one might need for the property—as well as an additional apartment and an authentic sheriff’s office complete with a jail.
Additional structures on the property include a caretaker’s home, two Wild West-themed apartments, three fully equipped and furnished guest houses, an a historic primitive cabin with 13 bedrooms.
One of the property’s most extravagant structures is Coyote Lodge, the 25,000-square-foot recreation structure, complete with
- exercise rooms
- a spa, pool, and hot tub
- Pistol Shooting Range
- Rock climbing wall
- Indoor Tennis Court/Multipurpose Room
- an elevator
- a full catering kitchen
- an authentic teppanyaki bar
- meeting rooms/massage room
Surrounding the lodge is:
- a tubing and sledding hill
- a soccer field
- a stocked trout pond
- over 12 miles of groomed paths for snowmobiles, cross-country skiing, horseback riding, hiking, and biking.
In addition to its accessories and amenities, Casteel Creek Retreat is self-sustaining and comes fully staffed. If the homeowners so desired, they would never need to leave the property for want of anything—enjoying all that the Rocky Mountain West has to offer, along with the ultimate luxury and convenience, year round.
