Idaho Springs house description

This beautiful, spacious four bedroom, two bathroom log cabin has all the modern amenities and gorgeous mountain views from every room. The house sits nearly on top of the mountain on 3 acres in the national forest with no neighbors in sight. There is a stream running along the bottom of the mountain.

The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking, including all small and large appliances, utensils, pots, dishes, etc.

The home has a whole house water filtration system with reverse osmosis in the kitchen. All linens are provided. The home has beautifully landscaped yards and gardens and the hummingbird feeders on the deck will provide an endless trail of birds if you keep them filled.

This is a great place for a few friends or a family to gather for rest and relaxation or for the many outdoor activities in the area including hiking, white-water rafting, four wheeling, snow shoeing, skiing, etc.

St. Mary's Glacier sits at the end of Fall River Road - 5 miles from the home. There is snow year-round at the glacier and a gorgeous waterfall.

Car: Necessary

Because the house sits in the national forest, you can literally walk out the back door and hike as far as you want. You can also drive 5 miles to St. Mary's Glacier, where you can hike or sled year round and snow shoe in the winter. Driving Fall River Road as you head to the home, you will see spectacular views and the fall brings incredible sights as the aspens change.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: My husband and I split our time between this home in Colorado and a home in Houston, where two of our children live. We are both professionals and enjoy the peace and tranquility of this amazing retreat.

Why the Owner Chose Idaho Springs:
When we were choosing a property, we wanted to live halfway between Lakewood and the ski slopes. This home was easily accessible from the highway and remote enough to provide the rest and relaxation we wanted.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home is remote but within a few minutes of I-70. It is located in Arapahoe National Forest, so there are no neighbors nearby. The views are better than any we had ever seen. The town of Idaho Springs in 6 miles away and has a grocery store, bars, restaurants, parks, and a gold mine that is now open for tours. There is also a glacier approximately 5 miles away, where you can enjoy hiking, sledding, and show shoeing.
