Part of the reason we love vacationing in the mountains is that we get to stay in a cabin, which is cute and fun, but not always comfortable. This is why we’re super into this house. Striking the right balance between cabin-comfy and full-time-home functionality, 129 Bonnie Heath Circle makes Loveland feel like a getaway. Though the woods that come up to the edge of the property lend a hand with that as well.
The home is big on neutral colors, but uses exposed wood beams, stone, and granite to spice things up. This leaves decorating opportunities wide open—and you don’t have to buy all new furniture upon moving.
High ceilings characterize this three-bedroom, three-bathroom home, but its crown jewel is the great room, which features an exposed beam cathedral ceiling. (You could fit a massive Christmas tree in there. Maybe one from your personal forest out back. Just saying.) Directly off the great room is a unique take on a screened porch. Because it sits on the second story, there’s still an open-air (shaded) patio underneath.
The master bedroom is nothing revolutionary. But the bath? As usual, that’s where we want to spend most of our time. Not only does it house a large dual shower (with a built-in seat so you have an excuse to stay in there longer), but the clawfoot bathtub sits in its own nook. The extra privacy makes it feel extra glamorous.
But our favorite part has to be the wine grotto. Yes, we said grotto. Frankly, we’re not sure why it sounds so much better than the standard “wine cellar”, but it does. It looks better, too, with that gated door, nicely stocked storage, and built-in wet bar with seating.
And if you bring a glass from the grotto up to the clawfoot tub… well, we’re just saying we won’t judge.
