Property description

A beautiful Colorado mountain lodge luxury vacation rental located at 9600 feet elevation, between Idaho Springs and St. Mary's Galcier. Surrounded by National Forest, this secluded yet accessible vacation home is the perfect place for your family reunion, vacation, group get-together, retreat or meeting.

The Invincible Lodge is located on 3 old mining claims. Historic mining ruins are still visible on the property. Fall River Reservoir is 3 miles up the road, with abundant hiking, Jeep trails, and fishing. This is a great road for snowmobiling in the winter! Fall River is literally feet from the Lodge. The relaxing sound of the rushing water can be heard from every room in the house! Abundant outdoor opportunities await!

Inside, the Lodge features luxurious rustic appointments. In the Great Room, relax next to one of the two stone wood-burning fireplaces. You can take in a movie downstairs in the Home Theater, fully equipped with a HDTV digital projection system. Play games in the upstairs loft, with beautiful views of the mountains. Grill a steak on the wrap-around deck overlooking the creek.

Several ski areas are within easy drive of the Lodge. Idaho Springs is only a few minutes away, with ample shopping and restaurants. Denver International Airport is only 1 hour 15 minutes away! Easy to get to, yet far away from the crowds, the Invincible Lodge will make you feel miles away!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: We are the Steitz Family. We purchased this beautiful land in 1996. We enjoyed it for camping and hiking for many years. Our parents had a dream to build a "cabin" that the whole family could use together. Our dad began work on the bridge in October, 2003. He suddenly and unexpectedly passed away in February, 2004 of a heart attack. We decided to build "The Invincible Lodge" in his memory, and it was completed in May, 2007. The Invincible Lodge has already been a blessing to many people, Dad would be proud!

Why the Owner Chose Idaho Springs:
The beauty of this setting speaks for itself. The seclusion, the forest, the mountains create a spirit of quiet and relaxation. The soothing sound of rushing water eases away any tension in your body, mind and soul. It is truly a spiritually refershing place, as Dad always said.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Lodge is big enough to allow the whole family. We enjoy games, relaxing, building a fire, staring out the picture window at the mountains. It is truly a getaway. In the winter, we sled, snowmobile, snowshoe, or just stay warm by t e fire. In the summer we hike, fish, mountain bike, run the trails, enjoy the wildflowers, have big bonfires by the creek!
