Property description

Little Victorian Cottage is located on Clear Creek in historic Silver Plume, a historic mining town known for silver mines.

Silver Plume, home of the George Rowe Museum, is a very small, old, rural mining town dating from the Colorado gold and silver rush of the last four decades of the 19th century.

Silver Plume is the closest town to Loveland ski resort - only 9 miles. Enjoy various winter activities in the winter (sledding, skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, ice skating) and numerous activities in the summer (water rafting, mountain climbing, biking, fishing... ). There are trails, lakes, parks, restaurants, shops, museums and many more places to visit.

The cottage has 2 bedrooms ; each bedroom is furnished with a queen size bed and a pull out in the living room for additional sleeping place if needed.
Newly remodeled bathroom is our pride: it has a clawfoot brand new vintage style bathtub, a retro style new vanity, tile, and more..
The cottage is located right on the creek: just sit on the bench, listen to the creek, relax and enjoy watching the water rushing through...

About the owner: Our family loves Colorado Rocky mountains and all activities they can offer: skiing, snowboarding, biking, taking trails, fishing, white water rafting. My husband and our twins were born and raised in Colorado. We love Colorado history (especially Colorado Gold Rush period), small historic mining towns, beautiful nature and abundant watchable wildlife.

Why the Owner Chose Silver Plume:
Our family always wanted to have a small house nearby ski resort. Silver Plume house happen to be a great location. The town of Silver Plume is very quiet, the people are friendly. A lot of historic sites around and small old mining towns with gorgeous Victorian architecture, museums, restaurants, antique shops, beautiful lakes, trails, etc.. Only 9 miles to Loveland Ski Resort, close to other famous places such as Silverthorne, Brekenridge, Vail...
