About Us


Welcome to our homes.  I tell people that if you are good on earth, eternity will be spent somewhere near Summit County, Colorado.  The people in Summit County are warm and friendly and life is comfortable, the way we like it here.  We value our surroundings and treasure the opportunity to live in the most beautiful place in the world.  If you have never experienced it, please come here for a weekend, or a week, or put down some roots in our glorious land and stay.  We look forward to welcoming you to paradise.

Mountain Clover Homes is a new generation of property management service.  Our team of Happy Bookers manage individual, large homes specializing in family reunions, group vacations, corporate retreats, and weddings.   

In 1998, I left my corporate career and lived out my dream to own and operate a bed and breakfast in the Colorado mountains.  With the addition of two little boys to my 'team', that home was converted to the lovely Lodge at Carolina in the Pines and is offered to our guests as a private home for events and vacations.  As the Lodge grew in popularity and filled with friends, The House at Keystone Ranch and The Meadow House at Keystone Ranch were added to our list of homes that charm and delight guests from all over the world. 

In 2003, we began managing other people's homes with the same care and service that we apply to our own and The Happy Bookers were born.  Amy Phelps and I have been working together for ten years and we are both completely dedicated to the complete care and satisfaction of our guests. 

Amy manages all aspects of the care of our homes and guests and ensures that guest experience is a priority.  Her enthusiasm is infectious and her care is genuine ~ she can answer questions about anything in the county.  She is joined by Miglius and Diana, who maintain the linens and interiors of our homes ~ carefully preparing each house for guest arrival.  Their dedication is evident at every check-in.  Together, we provide more than short term rental properties, we provide homes away from home and we ask that you enjoy them as if they were your own and fall in love with Colorado the way that we all have.

Our company prides itself in considering 'good karma' as a solid business principle and direct ourselves in that way.  We love our homes and treat each group as though it is our family.  Our goal is to focus on the individual needs and desires of our guests and guide them to the perfect property to suit their vacation, wedding, or retreat plan.  If ever there is any aspect of your travel that requires our attention, please call me or Amy and we will do whatever we can to correct a problem or provide guidance.

Our greatest compliments are the guests who return each year and their friends who tell us that they want to work with The Happy Bookers.  Thank you again for entrusting us with your vacation, retreat, or event.

Fondly, Carol Kresge

We have reached the end of an era and I feel as though I'm finally becoming a big girl with new reservation software and a new website presence.  This site will stay up for a year.....to direct our returning guests to new pages, but after that, I will say adieu to all of the photos of my boys over the past decade!  Please know that we are still here.....we've just created a much easier experience for our guests.

Some elements of this site may be outdated.  We have finally launched our new one, click here to visit.
