Evergreen house description
Amazing mountain getaway in Evergreen, Colorado! This is a dynamic mountain home with huge decks facing southwest, with awesome views of meadows, snow-capped mountains and sunsets. On a secluded 4.25 acres and bordering over 1000 acres of park land, you’ll feel like you’re the King or Queen, while you survey your private domain! The only thing around is quiet, mountains, wildlife, trees and rock outcroppings. And it's own private hot tub! You might be content to sit, relax and enjoy! Yet we are close to so many attractions and interesting places to visit. Ski slopes, Red Rocks, LoDo, Blackhawk & Central City, The Buck Snort, charming downtown Evergreen, & more! There is an endless list of activities! We are easily accessible from I70, Hwy285, or Hwy73, & are located on a well maintained dirt road. We recommend 4 wheel drive in the snow.

There are only 2 legal short term rentals in Jefferson County at this time!

You'll probably see some deer or elk, or a fox, or chipmunks, and lots of birds. So many of our guests can't wait to come back!
The Space: Colorado Dream is perfect for family visits. We've had families visit who have family members receiving medical treatment in the area, and we've hosted business retreats.

Whatever the reason, you won't regret your choice! Amazing views and peace and tranquility are what it's all about here. The house is the perfect place to connect with your loved ones! Enjoy dining on the deck, and watching the storms roll across the sky. The sunsets are breathtaking! Relax in the hot tub! Once I was joined by ''Fox E Brown'' our resident friendly fox, who sat next to the hot tub and enjoyed the sunset with me, while I was in the hot tub! All the wild life is a treat to watch! We can't wait to hear your stories!
Guesthouse-Extra Bed and Bath- You can expect a great deal of privacy and relaxation! It's such a unique and relaxing bit of heaven! Slate and knotty pine walls. Aspen ceiling in the kitchen.

VRBO Bear stayed here:
My adventure story experiencing the "Colorado Dream Vacation" still feels like a beautiful dream! I arrived in Evergreen at 9:30 at night in the wilderness dark. It was so fun and exciting to follow the solar powered lights to the magnificent home and cabin on this mountain. It was even more gorgeous than any of the pictures I had seen of this "get into the woods and away from the city" vacation site.
The first sight was the Jacuzzi. It was so warm and cozy. Then I pounced into the amazing cabin and when I looked up, I saw the tin ceilings; and when I looked straight ahead, I saw this huge all natural mountain rock built into the family room. I couldn’t believe it! Then, as I turned to my left, there was this tall spiral wrought iron staircase that let up to the master bedroom. I couldn’t wait to see what was up there, so I climbed as fast as I could, and it was pure Colorado. It had tree trunks for night stands and a big comfy bed and a light with antlers. I felt just at home as any bear would here.
Did I mention the terracotta color slate tiles on the walls in the kitchen, bathroom and on the floor? They were so unique and wonderful, I just loved them. But my favorite was the view out these huge windows at the unforgettable Colorado Dream Cabin. I could see the tops of the trees and the moonlight - and in the morning - the blue sky.
The owner explained to me that there is a honeymoon package available including champagne, strawberries, and massage available for the most romantic getaway. I hope you find this cabin as much of a dream as I did.

My dream home away from home!
My dream home away from home!
The property is just mins away from downtown Evergreen and easily accesible even after the flooding that occured just days before we arrived. The main house was very inviting and functional for all our needs. Great kitchen with wonderful space for group meals with a view. Washer and dryer, comfy furniture, and did I mention the views? It is hard to see anything but beauty from those windows. The hot tub was used morning and night every day, hard not to kick back, relax and take in those views from the hot tub. The cabin was perfect for a more intimate stay. My fiancee and I absolutely loved it. Upon awaking every morning, the first things my eyes could see was that view...the window just opened up the whole house to awesomness. I didn't use the kitchen as I did all of my cooking in the main house, but it was very nicely laid out, and stocked with any utensil/dish I may need. The hot tub was a bonus with the little cabin... I very much look forward to visiting the property again in the future. If you're planning to visit, bring a camera, some good hiking shoes, and an open heart ready to discover nature's beauty. The variety of plants, trees, and other assorted wildlife is almost unbelievable. A herd of elk bedded down in the front yard, a fox passing through, even the little woodpecker that visited daily...all of these moments right in the front yard...and just steps away from a beautiful hike up to the peak of the mountain where the views are even more breathtaking! The rental process was straight forward, easy, and all transactions were dealt with in a timely manner. We received our deposit back almost immediately. Sandi was a tremendous help answering all of my questions, as well as staying on top of the flooding situation and how that may affect our travel to the property. She kept me posted and prepared for any obstacles that might come along, although it turned out everything was passable when we arrived. The property was very clean, better than described, and the pictures just don't do it justice. I would absolutely recommend this property to others! Because of the flooding, several restaurants were closed for repairs, etc...We did have the pleasure of enjoying a lovely meal at Saigan Landing. The food was delicious, fresh, service was polite and prompt, and the cost was very reasonable for the quality of food. Overall, an outstanding visit to an outstanding property. Can't wait to go back!

And we try to keep it just as perfect as possible so all our guests have the opportunity to appreciate it as we do, and as you have. We love it for all the same reasons you shared. Just sitting on the deck all afternoon, provides the inner peace I cannot find anywhere else. We will welcome you back anytime!! Thanks again for your visit!
Perfect family vacation home
Perfect family vacation home
This is an amazing property. It is a huge house with a wonderful guest house right next door. It is on such a huge lot that we could not see another house on our part of the mountain. The house was very clean and included all things expected in a rental plus many nice extra perks. The hot tubs rock and the huge boulders on the property are great for kids. We cannot wait to return. We came for a family wedding and had many people in other cabins in the area. None came even close to matching the value, beauty, and location of this rental. Sandi is so kind and helpful. It is very clear that this is a home that they love and that they love to share. Thank you for allowing us to share time in this wonderful home!

Great Mountain Views
Great Mountain Views
Great vacation get away house. Wonderful views from the 2 balconies and from various locations behind the home up the hill. Lots of land to explore on the property. Deer, fox, squirrels and chipmunks to see. Nice wide open kitchen and family/living room. Large wooden dining table to accommodate a big family. Great having a cocktail in the pm or coffee in the am on the large spacious deck off the living room. It is gated so the dog can come out too. There is also a fenced in small yard in the back of the house with dog house. Nice location for a hot tub with views but we did not use. Would be great in the winter. We cooked most dinners in the kitchen -- all appliances you need and cooking utensils, pots & pans, etc. Grill on deck to cook on. Was warm during our visit in the late afternoons but best to take owners' advice and close curtains and back door. Wait until sun goes down to reopen. Leave all windows open during the day. Previous comments were about the stairs. It was not a problem for us. There aren't that many as stated. Large garage to park and plenty of other parking as well. We heard the resident fox too! Beds were very comfortable. Master bedroom and bath great and cool off wonderfully in the evening. We really enjoyed our stay!

Owner response: So, so glad you enjoyed your visit at the house! I can see from all the things you liked about the house, that they are things we advertise, so you were expecting the amazing views, the peace and quiet, the wildlife, and of course the house, and all guests can be sure they'll receive exactly what they expect. A great, well maintained and appointed home, fully stocked kitchen, luxury linens for all the beds, fresh thirsty towels; really all one needs except food, clothes and toiletries. And basically, besides taking out the trash, when it's time to go, you just leave. A great place to share good times, make memories, and relax. That's a great vacation! The deck, grill, hot tub, and amazing views are the whip cream on the cake! We appreciate so much, the great care you took, of the house, and hope you and your family will come back again!! We consistantly work to keep the property in the best condition possible, to ensure every guest is as happy as you. Thanks again! Sandi
This home exceeded all of our expectations. The owners were great and sent us information ahead of time, but the pictures did not do the views justice. The views were spectacular and the house is wonderfully maintained and has a personality of its own, only accentuated by the tile and wonderful accent pieces . The home was equipped with everything we needed, and the bed was extremely comfortable. I could have spent the entire time in the hot tub, with the expansive views of the mountains and completely private. Evergreen was right around the corner and we found great places to hike. There was wonderful wild life and we were visited by a grey fox and lots of deer.It will definitely be an annual event for our family!

Everything about my stay was great. The view was nice, the bed was comfy, and the hot tub made my nights complete. Everything was clean and ready. I needed help to find some things when I first arrived and the manager was right there to help me out on the phone. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to someone else.

Owner response: We're so happy you enjoyed your visit, and hope to see you again for your next vacation in the mountains!
The house and property were perfect. Easy to find and excellent access to downtown Evergreen, where you don't feel like a tourist. Amazing views and cozy yet spacious house that exceeded our expectation. The gravel hill leading up to the house is pretty steep, and was a little icy when we first arrived. I can imagine in snowy or heavy icy conditions, might be a little tricky to navigate, so I definitely recommend at the very least a front wheel drive vehicle and a little momentum. Definitely will consider staying here again. Communication with the owners was smooth and easy and it was a great value as well.

Owner response: Thanks so much Daniel! We love the place so much, I hate leaving there! Yes the road is a little steep, but you can also come from the other way so you're going down, and you'll reach our drive before it gets as steep. Ask me, next time you visit! We're so glad you enjoyed the house as much as we do! Please share Colorado Dream Vacation with your family and friends! Sandi
Great Place To Stay!

This home is better than advertised. The views are amazing, and the property is beautiful. We enjoyed all of our time hanging out on the deck, and relaxing in the hot tub, which also has great views. There are great hikes within walking distance, and Evergreen is only a 5 minute drive away. I would definitely recommend this property for anyone looking for a nice getaway in the Evergreen area.

We really enjoyed our stay at this house which is a few minutes drive up the hill from the main street in Evergreen. The house is well equipped and spacious and we enjoyed the Hot tub in particular. The views are fantastic. Makes a good base for exploring the older towns in the area like Georgetown and Idaho Springs and only about 45 mins drive back into the centre of Denver. Or just sit and enjoy the peace and quiet and the view! Would recommend.
