Engle House Living Dining RoomEngle House Master BedroomEngel House is a precious “Queen Anne” Victorian home which was built in 1892 in the quiet town of Rico, Colorado. It is situated at nearly 9000 feet, deep in the Rocky Mountains, and surrounded by national forest areas.

Recently run as the “Engel House Bed and Breakfast”, it is still owned by original families to the mountainous area. Today, you’re invited to share the 2000 square feet of renovated comfort. During your visit you’ll enjoy original historical details including fine wood work, high ceilings, original fixtures and hardware, as well as great footed tubs.

As you enter the home through wrought iron fencing and an over-sized door, you travel back in time. The living room is cozy with a beautiful bay window allowing the winter views and summer sunshine in. A wonderful piano is available for entertainment, as well as the satellite TV and VCR. In the dining room you find solid wood floors, the original built-in china hutch and a gas fire place; great ambiance. The fully-equipped kitchen speaks 1950’s and again is opened up by windows and high ceilings. The prize in here is the six-top woodburning stove reminiscent of the “early years.” Although, the convenience of a double oven and electric range is right at hand.

Engle House KitchenOff of the Dining Room, through wonderful old pocket doors is the master suite. Complete with small dressing/sitting room and full bathroom. Entering through French doors you find a large footed tub/shower and two sinks in this spacious bath. One sink set high for a man’s shaving, and the second set as a wash basin for the ladies.

Upstairs you find two guest rooms heated by a second gas fireplace. One room set with both a double and a twin bed. The second room, rather cozy set with a twin bed… the perfect space for a single guest. Both rooms have wonderful views through tall windows. These rooms share the upstairs bathroom. Another large space fitted with an even larger footed tub, and the basic sink of the early 1950’s. The tub in this bath is settled into a dormer window cut out of the room… and into the wide open spaces, with windows set perfectly for you to enjoy and take your time. So cozy!!

This property is just right for the passionate guest needing time away, and who is respectful to the finery of yesterday. Your small, well behaved pet is welcome with an additional damage deposit. The perfect retreat after a long day enjoying time in Telluride or Mesa Verde!
