Leadville house description

Accepting Reservations: May 1 – Thanksgiving 2014

Welcome to “The Foley House”, our cozy, restful Leadville, Colorado retreat.

We are located 2 blocks east of downtown within easy walking distance to just about everything. Our inviting, tastefully furnished home offers 2 spacious bedrooms, den, living room, eat in kitchen, full bath, hot tub and a fully fenced in back yard. Two bedrooms have plush queen beds and the den has a full size futon bed suitable for two children or one adult. If your goal is to relax and unwind we have Satellite TV, movies to view, internet access and a warming gas fireplace. In addition to off-street parking, we have a single car garage and parking in the rear. Both Mt. Elbert and Mt. Massive are viewable from our back yard and at night the stars will reach down into the Hot Tub and carry you away.

Best of all, we are pet friendly for the furry members of the family who enjoy a vacation too. Our yard is enclosed by a six foot high wooden fence and provides a secure area unless your dog is an awesome digger. We do not charge a pet fee but rather ask you treat our home as your own. Foley is our Golden Retriever.

Leadville and the surrounding area provides a stunning backdrop to world class fishing, mountain biking, hiking, climbing or leisurely walks on quite mountain paths. As a base for touring we are a scenic drive to Vail, Aspen (via Independence Pass) and Summit County home to Copper Mt, Breckenridge, Keystone and Frisco. Just south of us in Buena Vista is Cottonwood Pass with access to Taylor Creek Reservoir.

Leadville also has altitude (10,200’) but visiting the high country takes some preparation and precautions. Our guests from lower altitudes notice that they are often out of breath, their breathing is faster and their heart rate is faster. The effects of altitude are felt by everyone no matter what your physical condition. So relax the first few days, stay hydrated and go easy on alcohol until you have given your body a chance to acclimate.

We hope you find as we have, Leadville is special.

Please contact us via email if you are interested in the Foley House. Sorry but we do not accept one night rentals.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: Cindy and Jeff live and work in Colorado Springs with Foley and Tubbs our Golden Retriever Agility Dogs. Jeff is a member of the Volunteer Ski Patrol at Ski Cooper.

                      Why the Owner Chose Leadville:
                      Leadville is a laid back mountain town at the top of the Rockies. It is a very special place where you can come, unwind and find yourself. From quiet mountain walks to world class outdoor pursuits of all types, one only has to head out the door to explore. The town is quirky and quaint and runs at its own pace … for us this is perfect.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We love our property because it also allows us to vacation with our 'hard working agility dogs' Foley and Tubbs. Finding comfortable and upscale accommodations can be challenging when dogs are part of your family so we decided we'd create our own vacation home. An alpine meadow, a stunning view and a golden retriever, grinning from ear to ear, sure puts life into perspective. Downtown is an easy walk so a morning ritual is to head to the local coffee shop, grab a bench and watch the town wake up. Ski Cooper, one of Colorado Gems, is an awesome off-season walk for dogs. The wide ski runs allow your dogs some off-leash time and keeps them in view over a wide area.
