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.
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.
