About the Retreat

The Retreat Landowners Association (Retreat for short) is an association of about 217 owners of 261 lots covering approximately 1000 acres and is located near the town of Glen Haven in Larimer County, Colorado. As of March 2011, 166 single family cabins have been built in the Retreat. Originally when the Retreat was established in 1971 and lots were placed on the market, the intent was for summer cabins to be built, but over the years many full-time residences have been built. The Retreat is closely associated with the town of Glen Haven. Both share a common post office, Glen Haven Area Volunteer Fire Department, social events and access via Devils Gulch Road (County Road 43). Although they are less than 1 mile apart as the crow flies, Triangle Mountain (8415 feet) geographically separates them.

Historically (Retreat Photo Story video) the Retreat area was hunted by Arapahoe, Cheyenne, and Ute native Americans with archaeologically evidence of their presence over 2000 years ago. In the late nineteenth century the Retreat area was homesteaded by several families for grazing cattle and sawmills as a source of income. Through the most part of the twentieth century the area exchanged hands, until 1971 the large Maitland ranch was sold to Escape Properties LTD of Boulder to be divided into two to twenty acre lots to be sold and the Retreat was born.
