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.

We received the first ever Short Term Rental permit issued in Jefferson County, June 1, 2012, which was very difficult to obtain, yet, we maintain the requirements to keep the permit in force and effect!! There are only 2 legal short term rentals in Jefferson County at this time, although there are over 40 listed in Evergreen!

Every Season is special in Evergreen!: You'll find every season has the best activities here in the Evergreen, Colorado area! Snow skiing and boarding in the winter, along with ice skating, ice fishing and sledding, dirtbike and ATV tours, fishing, ice fishing, and hiking, and biking in the summer, hunting, camping, sightseeing in the fall, and all kinds of festivals in the spring and summer. Professional football, basketball, baseball, hockey, and soccer, all year long. Gambling at Blackhawk and Central City. Museums, Red Rock Amphitheater, dinner theaters, world class dining to down home eating at the Buck Snort Saloon! Amazing scenic drives in the mountains! The list goes on and on! And all within minutes! That's an hour or less! Or, you can kick back and do nothing. Just sit and enjoy the view and the peace and quiet while you sit in the hot tub! 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. We've had families who were in between homes, and needed a place for a while. We host families visiting relatives in Evergreen. Vacations, weddings and mini family reunions are the mainstay of visitors at our home.
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!

The Master boasts a King Bed and ensuite bath, beautifully decorated with rich browns and cream, cowhide pillows and western artwork. You'll find a TV in the Armoire. The Master Bath has dual copper vessel sinks atop a rustic quartz coutertop sprinkeled with copper flecks. Beautiful!
The Guest Bedroom, is southwest style from the artwork to the drums, to the lamps and peace pipes, with a high sloped wood ceiling giving the room such character and warmth, you could stay here forever! You'll be very comfortable in the Queen Bed in the Guest room.
Jarrett's Bedroom is 2 story!, and is where the kids will want to stay! It's decorated with kid friendly black bears, climbing up the wall! There is a full/twin bunk bed, and a sleeping loft accessible with a rolling library ladder containing a queen bed. Complete with a log bench and custom horn coat and hat rack, it's a very cool bedroom, not another like it!!

You'll find a well stocked kitchen, complete with pots pans, baking dishes, utincils and spices. The kitchen has a wood ceiling with recessed lighting, custom cabinetry, and a view that will make you want to stay there! Very cozy! The dark wood dining table seats 10 and the breakfast bar in the kitchen seats 3. The kitchen is open to the dining and living, completely open concept! The dining area looks out with a huge glass window to the spectacular view of distant mountains, sunrises and sunsets! You might like watching the distant lights twinkle each evening, across the darkness of the peaceful mountains.
The living area has a comfy leather sofa and 2 leather arm chairs, a flat screen TV, large coffe table, and wood stove for additional warmth, although there is a forced air heat system in the home. You have the beautiful views from here as well.
There is an open loft upstairs, between the guest room and Jarrett's room, which looks down over the dining and living areas. It has another sofa, TV and Stereo system. This is a great place for all ages to play video games or just relax with the additional space.

The main level has the Master Suite, Kitchen, Dining, Living, Half Bath and Laundry. The hot tub(perched among huge granite rock outcroppings) is also acessible from this level. The upper level has the Guest bedroom, Jarrett's Bedroom, Bathroom with Tub/Shower Combo, and the Loft.

The home is set on over 4 acres, but abutts parks totalling over 1100 acres! Looking out from the deck at the house, one cannot see any other homes, except on other mountains!

Guesthouse-Extra Bed and Bath- Extra Privacy. 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. You can lay in the king size feather bed and watch it snow out of the 21 foot tall windows! Or watch the moon rise over the snow! Enjoy your own private hot tub just outside the front door on the huge deck! Watch the wild life and enjoy a glass of wine on the deck as well. You have two TVs, one upstairs, and one downstairs. Also enjoy wireless Internet. This is truly a very special place, you won't soon forget! Perfect for meditation, writing, painting, etc. Available if needed, for an additional fee.

I cannot express how wonderful and special, this home really is! I hear it from every guest, and they also say that the pictures don't do justice to the reality. Come see for yourself! I don't think you'll be dissappointed!

The bear loves the spiral staircase up to the master bedroom loft 05/20/2007

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.
