Idaho Springs house description

SKIER'S DELIGHT! SAVE DOLLARS by staying in this cozy home. $350/night (2 night minimum stay), $300/night (3-5 ngihts), $1700/week. Only 30 minutes from Loveland ski area on the Continental Divide and 45 minutes from Winter Park, one of Colorado's premier ski destinations. Pack lunches to take to the slopes. Cook at home in this fully equipped kitchen. Enjoy many restaurants within 15 minutes. This secluded mountain retreat is nestled up against the National Forest and bordered by a gorgeous mountain stream. In warmer weather you will enjoy this magnificent outdoor setting by relaxing on the 1500 sq.ft. bilevel wrap-around deck, which overlooks the creek. From this location at 9200 ft. altitude, there is easy access from the property to miles of hiking and great access to multiple ski areas.


This smartly remodeled home can accommodate up to 12 guests. The master bedroom with a king size bed has a private full bath and double doors out to the deck. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and the third bedroom has day bed (with an extra pull-out mattress). These two bedrooms have access to the second full bath. The downstairs bedroom with two bunk beds, sleeps four and has private deck with its own entrance. The living room sofa opens into a ungraded and comfortable queen size bed.The living room is accentuated by a soapstone wood stove and rustic mantel. Large picture windows bring the lovely outside setting into the home.
Though seemingly remote, this home is a 10 minute drive from Interstate 70, the major east/west highway through Colorado. It is 30 minutes from west Denver, where you can enjoy all the amenities of a large city, including restaurants, theaters, shopping, golf, amusement parks. Yet you are also within 15 minutes of three small mountain communities - Georgetown with its Georgetown Loop Scenic Railroad tour, Idaho Springs with its hot springs, and Empire where you'll enjoy the Peck House Hotel and Restaurant, established in 1862.

Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, and Keystone provide a variety of skiing adventures as well as small mountain town charm, boutique shopping and factory outlet stores. Central City and Black Hawk, are Colorado's gambling meccas. While some may enjoy a performance at the Central City Opera House, others might take a gold mine tour.
If you are an outdoor enthusiast, you will be enthralled by the opportunities for hiking, biking, white water rafting, climbing, fishing, golfing, zip lining and many others close at hand.
