Property description

WELCOME HOME! Arrive-Unpack-Enjoy !

The Colorado Retreat at Saxon Mountain is wonderfully outfitted to fit all of your needs. From the huge curved living area to the large open kitchen and dining area, you will feel warm and welcome. Service for 20 but with space for over 30!

Your Master bedroom (with queen bed) and master bath with a two-person jetted jacuzzi, provides a beautiful and private space to relax.

Upstairs!! Two bedrooms contain either a queen bed or two twins/king. Both have a convertible sofa for your children. These rooms share a full bath.

The Lower level " Bunk Room" is a 'Great Family Room'. It is a wonderful area for entertainment with billiards and Xfinity. Here you have 3 double beds and a set of single bunkbeds set up to provide comfort and security.

On the back deck 'outside under the stars' is a six-person hot tub with plenty of towels to go around, but bring your suits.

The Colorado Retreat at Saxon Mountain is perfect for small wedding ceremonies, rehearsal dinners and day after reception gatherings. Annual family reunions and celebrations for returning military members round out the majority of folks who enjoy the Retreat.

Every year many youth and church groups enjoy their events with us. Retreats of all kinds, corporate, church or youth trips find the Retreat to be a perfect location because of the space and the amenites provided such as the 50' Smart TV combined with xfinity access, high speed internet which allows TV connection to Facebook, Youtube etc.

Thanks for choosing to spend your time at our special home. We know you will just love it.

Your Hosts,
Butch and Deb

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!

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, Mountain Biking 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.
