God's Country Lodge is just the site for your next family, church, executive, or hunting retreat. Located in the center of the 'western slope' of Colorado, this remote retreat is for guests who want to 'get away from it all. Activities in the nearby vicinity include hiking, hunting, lake & stream fishing, wine tasting, and horseback riding -- however, God's Country Lodge is so peaceful that you might not want to leave!
This 6,000 square foot, two-story lodge features two kitchens (one is fully equipped), a great room, a recreation room, seven bathrooms, and six bedrooms (Upstairs there are two kings, two queens; downstairs each of the two bedrooms have 1 XL double and 2 XL twins). Extra features include a huge fireplace, wet bar, two TVs with satellite TV, wireless internet, pool table, dart board, games, puzzles, toys for the kids, books, gas barbeque and a steam room. The taxidermy mounts (bear, deer, elk, beaver, turkey, etc.) and the unique woods throughout promote a Colorado high-country ambiance. Incredible views of the West Elk Mountain range and Grand Mesa.
This is our beautiful home-away-from-home - and we want you to experience it, too! Guests can access the entire home except for the garage, the mechanical room and the owner's storeroom.

If there is damage to a property or its contents within, after the Guest(s) departure, the Guest will be notified of any excessive cleaning needed or damages made and the amount will be deducted from the above mentioned damage deposit.

The garbage disposal can easily be clogged if food wastes such as fats, grease, coffee grounds, tea bags and fibrous materials (such as rice, celery or cornhusks) are put down the drain. If it is found that improper material has been dumped and thus clogged the drainage system, Guest shall be charged for damages.
Housekeeping: While linens, bath towels and cleaning supplies are included, daily maid service is not included in the rental rate.

Assignment and Subletting: Guest shall not assign this agreement or sublet any portion of the premises or allow extra guests to occupy the unit overnight without prior approval from the Owner/Manager.
Uncontrollable Circumstances: Neither Owner nor Manager shall be liable for events beyond their control which may interfere with Guest(s) occupancy, including but not limited to acts of God, acts of governmental agencies, fire, strikes, war, inclement weather, construction noise and natural fauna inside or out of property. No rebate or refund will be offered in these circumstances.
Holding Over: Because of the nature of short-term vacation rentals, Guest agrees that any unauthorized “holding over” of the property past the stated rental period could severely jeopardize Owner/Manager and cause loss of rental income from other previously booked tenants and/or permanent loss of business, goodwill and reputation, and could force Owner/Manager to breach an agreement with similar short-term vacation tenants who may have reservations during Guest’s unauthorized “holding over” period. In this event, Owner/Manager may be legally liable for loss and damages to other tenants. Unauthorized “holding over” will result in Guest’s responsibility to fully indemnify Owner/Manager for any and all losses sustained as a result of any such “holding over” – including attorney’s fees and expenses.
Indemnification: By accepting this reservation, it is agreed that all guests are expressly assuming the risk of any harm arising from their use of the premises or others whom they invite to use the premise. Guest agrees to hold Owner and Manager harmless from any and all claims for damages or injuries occurring on the premises or any part thereof, or in common areas thereof, and to indemnify Owner/Manager for any and all losses sustained as a result of any such claims, including attorney’s fees and expenses, unless such damage is the result of actual negligence or unlawful act of Owner or Manager. Manager shall not be liable for negligence or unlawful act of Owner.
Physical Possession: If Owner and Manager are unable to deliver possession of the premises at the start thereof, Owner/Manager shall not be liable for any damage caused thereby, nor shall this agreement be void or voidable by guest, but guest shall not be liable for any rent until possession is delivered. Manager will make every reasonable attempt to find comparable accommodations if Manager is unable to deliver possession. Guest may terminate this agreement if possession is not delivered within one day of the start of the term hereof.
Arbitration/Venue/Law: Any dispute or claim in law or equity arising out of this contract or any resulting transaction shall be brought in Irvine, California, and shall be determined pursuant to the law of the State of California and shall be determined by binding arbitration under the rules of the American Arbitration Association, and not by court action except as provided by California law for judicial review of arbitration proceedings. Judgment upon the award made by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The parties shall have the right to discovery under Code of Civil Procedure 1283.05.
Rental Rules: Guest agrees to abide by State of Colorado law and these Rental Agreement Rules at all times while on the property and shall cause all members of the rental party and anyone else Guest permits on the property to abide by the State Law and Rental Agreement Rules at all times while on the property.
