Live Out Your Westworld Dreams at Casteel Creek Retreat

Picture the ultimate dream home. Does it include a sprawling contemporary castle? Acres upon acres of trails for every imaginable outdoor activity? Stunning mountain views? Your own ice cream parlor? How about a jail cell (okay that’s a bit weird, but hey, it’s your dream house). Well you’re in luck, because not only does Casteel Creek Retreat come with all of this, it’s up for sale. You just need to wrangle up a cool $78 million and it’s yours.

Located in Edwards, Colorado, Casteel Creek Retreat is truly a one-of-a-kind estate. The property checks every item off of the “dream home” wish list of any outdoor lover, along with having a 32,000-square-foot residence that needs to be seen to be believed.

Like any luxury property, Casteel Creek Retreat has all of the high-end features you would expect. There’s a private movie theater, a spa, 8 bedrooms and 16 full bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, a bar and game room, a full gym, and even elevators to get your from floor to floor. 

Finished in exotic granites, marbles, and wood inside that is complemented by wood, steel, copper and stone outside, the home offers up a contemporary take on the classic mountain rustic style. Double-height ceilings provide a sense of grandeur typical of hunting lodges and the color palette blends natural tones of browns and grays for a masculine look. But gone are the cliche dark rooms filled with plaids, animal heads, and antler chandeliers. In their place are bright open rooms with sophisticated touches like frosted glass floors on the mezzanine levels, subtle patterns, and a Chihuly chandelier.

Despite all of the opulence of the design and finishes, there is a welcoming comfort to the home that mountain hideaways are known for. Fireplaces abound, offering cozy spaces to unwind during those snowy Colorado winters. Massive windows frame stunning mountain views while allowing in plenty of natural light, making the already large rooms feel even more spacious. Exposed wood beams add a touch of warmth to some spaces while plush carpeting adds softness to others.

Casteel Creek Retreat is an estate in the truest sense of the word. Along with the main house, there is a fully furnished guest house, a caretaker’s cabin, and a Wild West-themed area complete with a primitive cabin, a saloon, an ice cream parlor, and a jail cell for rounding up outlaws. The saloon is an authentic replica of the historic Silver Dollar Saloon and there is a poker table outside of the jail cell so you can gamble while you keep an eye on the prisoners, making this more Westworld for adults than a Disney playground for kids. 

Keeping with the adult playground theme, the estate comes with 12 snowmobiles, 3 ATVS, a fully stocked trout pond, a shooting range, and a 25,000-square-foot recreation building that’s been outfitted with a five-story rock climbing wall. If all that still isn’t enough for you, the estate comes with a touring snowcat that seats 10 allowing you to explore the 439 acres once the land becomes blanketed in snow each winter. Casteel Creek Retreat offers everything we love about Colorado all on one stunning property. 

So who has a spare $78 million we can borrow?

Google Maps has long been a dominant player in navigation, known for its comprehensive data and ease of use. However, with the release of iOS 17, Apple has introduced a game-changing feature that's set to make Apple Maps the go-to choice for outdoor enthusiasts and adventurers. Apple is finally introducing offline maps, and it's a feature that will revolutionize the way hikers, campers, skiers, and snowboarders navigate the great outdoors.
iOS 17 unveils offline maps for Apple Maps
Apple Maps has come a long way since its initial launch, and it's continually striving to offer users a more robust and feature-rich experience. With the launch of iOS 17 on September 18, 2023, Apple is introducing offline maps, a feature that will be a game-changer for those who love outdoor activities.

Offline maps allow users to select specific areas to download to their phones. Once downloaded, these maps can be accessed and used without an internet connection. This makes it possible to enjoy turn-by-turn navigation and conduct searches even in remote areas where internet connectivity may be unreliable or nonexistent. It works similarly to Google Maps in the sense that you do need a WiFi connection to download the maps, but after that, you're good to go off the grid.
The perfect companion for outdoor adventures
For outdoor enthusiasts, this feature is a dream come true. Whether you're hiking in the wilderness, camping in a remote location, skiing down the slopes, or snowboarding in the mountains, having access to offline maps can be a lifesaver. Here's how this feature can benefit different adventure seekers:

Does your favorite Brad Pitt movie make the list?
Brad Pitt staring across the table

If you were to look up the word "superstar" in the dictionary, it wouldn't be surprising if Brad Pitt's visage was strewn across the page. When you hear his name, it’s hard not to think of his chiseled abs, effortless charm, and distinctively beautiful face. Many may even immediately think of all the media surrounding his romantic entanglements with Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston, but we’re definitely not here to talk about that.

Today, we are here to talk about the many strides Brad Pitt has made in his film career; from war movies to heist comedies, he's taken his physical beauty and made the most of it. While he may not have the reputation of Tom Hanks or Al Pacino, Pitt has become a great performer in his own right. In addition to his prolific acting career, Pitt is also a producer with more than 60 credits to his name. Clearly, there is much more to him than just what meets the eye, which is part of what makes him such a compelling screen presence.
