Enjoy million-dollar views of the Rocky Mountains and on quiet nights, listen to the soothing sounds of Bear Creek from your very private deck. This comfortable and charming family-friendly home is just a five minute walk into the Heart of Evergreen.

Your Mountain Home is a traditional Colorado cabin that has been lovingly expanded and updated over the last 50 years, most recently a with solar electric system in 2008. It is the only rental property adorned with hand-carved doors, panels and even a totem pole!

It is a sunny and spacious home perched on the side of a mountain. While close to the village, you have the sense of privacy that usually comes with far more isolated locations.

Comfortable surroundings, privacy, great views, great location - what else do you need?

The bright and sunny master bedroom is on the lower level and features a queen bed and bathroom with a separate shower and tub. There are two bedrooms on the main floor, one with a queen bed. The Bunk Room has two comfortable bunk beds. It is next to the upstairs bathroom and has a roomy closet.

The well-equipped kitchen opens into a large dining room with a table that easily seats 10. Go up one step into the living room and enjoy the view of Mt. Evans from the large picture window. A large and sunny mudroom is a perfect place to store skis or bikes.

The kitchen has everything from flatware and measuring cups to a blender and waffle iron. The hot tub towels are stacked on living room shelves right next to the sliding door to the deck. Warm and cozy throws are perfect for wrapping yourself in while reading or watching TV, and are kept in the upper and lower living rooms. Everything you need is here - just bring clothes and something to eat! Better still, enjoy the wonderful restaurants in Evergreen. Creekside Winery, Rio del Sol and One World Cafe are just three of the owners' favorites.

Main Level: 2 bedrooms (1 with queen bed and 1 with two bunk beds) full bath, washer/dryer, kitchen, dining room, living room mudroom, deck with hot tub

Lower Level: Master bedroom with full bath, large living room with 55' HD TV, door to small fenced yard

Carport has covered parking for two cars.

Hot Tub: Easily accessible on the deck

Family Friendly - Portable crib with sheets (on request) and blankets, high chair, plastic dishes, kid videos and books, arts and crafts supplies. There is a baby gate that goes across the carpeted stairs leading to the lower level, but a determined toddler could get over it. Direct parental supervision of children is required at all times.

Handicapped Access - 3 gentle steps into house and 1 step up into living room. We will put a shower seat on the huge shower on the main level on request. There is a flight of stairs to the lower level, but the lower level just contains a second living room and bedroom. Everything you need is on the main level. Please call to discuss your specific accessibility needs with the owner in advance. We will do whatever we can to make your stay easy and pleasant.

We are one of only two PERMITTED and LEGAL vacation rentals in Jefferson County, which includes Evergreen, Conifer, Morrison, Genesee and Golden. Feel free to call and ask why you should stay in a legal rental as opposed to an unpermitted one.

                      Evergreen is your 'Four Season Vacation Destination!'

                      A gentle, 30 - 45 minute drive puts you in the middle of Denver's vibrant arts, culture and restaurant scene. The Performing Arts Complex, museums, Denver Zoo and The Pepsi Center are 'must-do's' while on vacation in Evergreen! Did I mention that Red Rocks Amphitheater is about 15 minutes away?

                      WINTER

                      The largest outdoor ice skating area in North America is on Evergreen Lake! Evergreen is an easy day-trip to world class skiing in resorts like Breckenridge, Winter Park and Vail. Casinos in Blackhawk and Central City are close by too!

                      SPRING

                      Visit Red Rocks Park and inspect the amazing natural amphitheater. Enjoy spring skiing at discounted prices. Enjoy a 'Last Friday' gallery and restaurant walk in The Heart of Evergreen. Take in a Rockies baseball game at Coors Field. How about a Coors Brewery tour?

                      SUMMER

                      Evergreen ROCKS summer! Hike in Elk Meadow, mountain and road bike everywhere! Enjoy music festivals, arts festivals, the Evergreen Rodeo and Parade, free Wednesday concerts at Evergreen Lake, paddle boating, golf - you can even sail on our little lake!

                      FALL

                      Just spectacular! Aspens turn an amazing gold and their gentle rustle fills the air. Fish in the lake or the creek, attend the Yoga High Festival at the lake. Bikers are enjoying cooler temperatures, and football fans flock to see their team play the Broncos at fabulous Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

                      Your Mountain Home provides local attraction guides, and we will be happy to advise you about upcoming events happening during your stay.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: We made multiple trips from Massachusetts to Colorado with our two young sons to visit relatives, and finally bought the property to use as a second home. It turned out that we loved Evergreen so much that we moved to a house on Bear Mountain!

                      Why the Owner Chose Evergreen:
                      I stepped into the mud room of Your Mountain Home and knew that this was the place for us! Even unfurnished, the house wrapped its arms around me and gently ushered me inside. The light was beautiful. The layout was perfect. The view was wonderful. The hand carved details blew me away. The location - well, I still think that it is the best location in Evergreen, bar none!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      I love everything about this home, and past guests concur. The house is charming and functional. The location is convenient and private. You can relax in your private oasis during your vacation, or pack it with activities. The choice is yours. Also, we live in Evergreen, about 15 minutes from YMH. We are happy to make suggestions about dining and activities, and are close by in the unlikely event that you need help.
