                          Anyone for a game of pool? 07/21/2008

                          VRBO Bear stayed here:


                          Holy bear cubs, this place is amazing! I arrived with my seven new human friends and two new canine friends at this pet-friendly mountain home and had to immediately check out every room in the house. Everything was just as the photos depicted and then some! We walked downstairs, saw the pool table, and it was all over. Game on! Between the pool table and the hot tub, I’m not sure which was the bigger hit.

                          The home is wonderfully decorated to make visitors feel comfortable. Even the large open areas had a cozy atmosphere. DirecTV is provided in each of the bedrooms. In the kitchen we found everything we needed to cook our meals. For those of you who like outdoor barbecues, there was a nice new grill.

                          If you prefer to dine out, you'll find some rustic and unique places to choose from in town. Our favorite was The Red Ram! For a great after-dinner treat, we stopped at Georgetown Valley Candy Company, where they make most of their own candy by hand.

                          Looking for adventure? It’s all around! Check out the hiking trails, starting with the one just outside the front door. There’s also my favorite activity - fishing! Georgetown Lake is just down the hill. Scenery abounds! All you need to do is look out the windows and right up a mountain.

                          If you’re looking for a mountain getaway, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed with this top notch vacation rental!

                            We will be back! Had a wonderful time with our family in this house. It was big enough so everyone had their own space. However, it was nice being in the same house as everyone. Already talking about our next trip back there. Thanks so much!

                            A lovely setting on Saxon Mountain: we enjoyed the historic railroad, hiking, swimming, sledding, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing. The house was close to all of these and the views were great! The unusual house design was a delight, and we found the house well stocked. A couple of shades and a lamp were broken when we arrived, and need to be fixed.

                            The place was absolutely beautiful! Plenty of room for everyone! We ended up with 17 adults joining us for the weekend and we had a wonderful time! The ONLY thing that was a disappointment was the hot tub was not working! It wouldn't get hot. Other then that, every need was met and Butch went above and beyond to help get us there! Thanks for the great memories that we can add to our list!

                            I stayed here for a wedding in Dumont, with about ten other guests. Everyone had a comfortable place to sleep, there was plenty of room for all of us to socialize, and the atmosphere was great. The owners were very easy to work with and accommodating. I would highly recommend this place.

                            The cabin is very spacious. The large kitchen was great for our large family (of 11) who loves to cook. A few staples were provided, too. The bunk beds were good for the older kids, and we enjoyed having a futon in our room for our toddler to sleep near us. Carpeted stairs were good for the little ones who walked up and down them constantly! The kids loved the master jacuzzi bath, too. Would have liked a better view of the mountains and a less noise from I-70 (only noticeable at night w/windows open), but overall it was great. Would suggest more outdoor seating for larger groups. Easy to drive into beautiful downtown Georgetown for food and shopping, and we enjoyed our rafting/zip-line tour in Idaho Springs, as well as horseback riding! Overall, great place and the owners were very helpful and friendly!

                            I can't say enough about how wonderful our stay was in Georgetown. The home is beautiful, spacious and was absolutely perfect for our large family getaway. We had 14 adults and 5 children (under the age of 4). The kids enjoyed "camping" out in a tent in the large downstairs room and everyone slept comfortably in the rooms. The kitchen and dining area was large enough to accommodate all our cooking and meal times for our large group. The trails around the house were great to go hiking on and we enjoyed our visit to the very quaint downtown area in Georgetown. If there were any issues that came up, Butch was very responsive and made sure that everything was in working order for us. We never got around to using the hot tub so I can't speak for that. We experienced some great weather, from sunshine, to hail, to snow and rain! We thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Thank you again for opening up your home to us. We absolutely loved our stay!

                            We had a group of right around 20 come and stay here for a Ski Trip recently and this was the perfect lodge for our group. Georgetown was a great location to access our Ski Resort quickly everyday and this lodge had everything we needed. I would recommend this lodge to anyone interested in hosting a group from 10 to 25 people. The owners were great to work with and we would definitely stay here again for our Ski Trip.

                            We three families spent three nights in Georgetown. The house is very well maintained and all facilities are functioning properly. Kids like the wood burning stove in the living room and the jumping bed in the basement. You do need to bring a ultrasound humidifier though if you are coming in winter. There is only one humidifier in the house and it makes noise when running at night.

                            Recommended for: Families with teenagers, pet owners, girls getaway, families with young children, romantic getaway.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2003

                          About the owner: Hi, Welcome to Saxon Mountain Retreat! After living in Breckenridge for 27 years (let it snow, snow, snow) we needed to find a more sane and relaxing location. This is Georgetown! At Saxon Mountain, we found the PERFECT home for our active lifestyle-hiking and biking right from our front door. We especially like NOT having to live with a snow shovel in my purse. We LOVE the evening walks to see the deer, fox and other critters that abound. We know you will love our custom home and its spaciousness, warmth and many momentos from our travels!

                          Why the Owner Chose Georgetown:
                          Georgetown is centrally located for all of the Rocky Mountain outdoor recreation activites we could want plus we have 7 world class ski resorts within a hours drive. There is historic Central City and Blackhawk casinos within the hour. Two nation scenic byways, 4 fourteeners, gold and silver mines, museums, and hot springs are all right here or very close by.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Besides the hiking and wildlife exposure that starts right at the front door, we can fish in Clear Creek or walk the Continental Divide. It's nice to be able to quickly get to Denver for a Bronco game, or a Rockies baseball game and then come home to peace and quiet, cool summer air and great neighbors. For the small business or corporate meeting it is perfect also for intense personal training or education.
