  • Our third stay, it's like home!

    "This was our third trip to Leadville over Spring Break, having skied Copper Mountain twice and Ski Cooper once. This place continues to be preferct for our family of four. It's located on the north side of town, about three miles from the Leadville Safeway to the south. You are closest to Copper and Ski Cooper, both north of Leadville. You have the feeling of being in a secluded cabin setting, yet less than a few minutes from the grocery store. There are many personal touches to really make you feel at home. It's about 20 miles to Copper Mountain, one of my favorite CO mountains, as the mountain is huge, one of the famous 'Summit County' hills, lift lines are short, and it's not pretentious. Plus, being able to stay in Leadville vs a high-end condo is more appealing to our family. And, the owner is a really easy guy to work with. Although we have never met face to face, I consider Paul a friend after three years of swapping snow reports! This is our second year in the Tashi, a 2-bedroom cabin, one BR with a queen, the other bedroom with twin beds. We stayed in the Buckeye once, also an awesome cabin. Kitchen is well stocked, huge porch, very clean gas grill for your steaks or burgers. The woodbunring stoves work great, maybe too great. Three years and we still can't get a comfortable 'burn', either too hot or needs more wood...but it's fun having a fire. Beds are comfortable, and the living room has easy seating for four. It's a cabin...plugs are a premium and with this being the 'gadget age', ie phones, computers, Go-Pro, boot dryers, i-Pads, Nooks, Garmans, etc (kind of embarrassing!), it can be a challenge. But, there are a few plug in power strips to get stuff charged as long as you don't want it bedside. Also, no dishwasher or washer/dryer, but the website accurately reflects that. Pictures are spot on! At the end of the day, if we plan to return to Leadville, I wouldn't consider another property unless this one is booked. No, it's not a five star condo, but good luck finding one in Leadville, as that's not Leadville's vibe. It's clean, comfortable, priced right, and just an absolutely charming place to stay. You have a great feeling of being in the mountains, with town only a few miles away."

  • Excellent, clean, cozy place

    "We have been impressed with this condo. All you need, clean, comfortable, all modern, and well equipped. The best of it was a working WI-FI right where you need it. My kiddos appreciated it the most. Access to outdoor jacuzzi and pool. Would love to come back an rent again. Location mostly for drivers, but there is an easy walk to free Summit Stage bus stop without equipment. Altitude and heavy bag makes it a challenge."

  • Beyond my expectations!

    "We visited before the holidays for a family getaway and were blown away by the beauty of this property and the beautiful Christmas decorations and lights! It truly represented Colorado living at its best! My sons really enjoyed the kids' room with a video arcade and boardgames while my husband loved the pool table. I got the chance to relax in the hottub and later visited the Aveda spa, Tall Grass, just up the street. The kitchen was well equiped to make any meal and the amenities throughout the house were fabulous. We even fed the horses apples and carrots! The town of Evergreen was quaint and fun for all of us to explore. We plan to come back in the summer to mountain bike and enjoy paddle-boating on Evergreen Lake!"

Colorado Travel Tips

The Rocky Mountain State is a wonderful place to visit if you love being outdoors. Whether you’re an avid mountain climber or just love to take in the scenery, this state offers something for everyone. Here are some tips for what to see and do on your Colorado vacation:

Denver

The capital of Colorado is located at the foot of the Rocky Mountains on the High Plains. Most people don’t realize that Denver has milder weather than other mountainous cities - the average temperature is in the 30s in the winter and averages in the 90s about 36 days a year in the summer. Additionally, Denver surprisingly gets an average of 300 days of sunshine per year, rivaling sunny Los Angeles!

While in the Mile High City, make sure to go shopping and dine in Larimer Square, the historic district established in 1858 that once represented the entire parameters of the city. Get in touch with your creative side at the Denver Art Museum or take a slow stroll in the 23-acre Denver Botanic Gardens, just east of downtown, which houses 15,000 plant species from around the world and includes a Japanese garden, tropical conservatory and sculptures and fountains throughout the space.

Catch a Colorado Rockies game at Coors Field, take a tour and tasting at Coors Brewery and visit Washington Park, which features bike and boat rentals, walking and jogging paths, tennis courts, lakes and playgrounds for the kids. The kids will also love Lakeside Amusement Park and Elitch Gardens. Serious hikers should consider ascending 14,000-foot Mount Evans for the views. If there’s a show during your Denver travels, Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater is a must-visit - the concert venue is carved into the reddish-brown cliffs, and it’s located only 15 miles southwest of the city.

Boulder

Boulder is just about a 45-minute drive northwest of Denver. It’s known for its culinary scene, healthy citizens and natural beauty.

The Flatirons are a must-see symbol of Boulder. They are flat walls of rock near Green Mountain, scaled by many adventurous climbers. Instead of this intense jaunt, you can hike the trails on Green Mountain, but they’re too difficult for kids. You can also head to the park at the base for a picnic and beautiful photo op. Chautauqua Park is a local favorite and it provides some of the best vistas in the area. It’s located just south of the city on the edge of Green Mountain. Chautauqua has family-friendly trails and plenty of picnic spots.

Art-lovers should check out the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art and the very unique Leanin’ Tree Museum of Western Art - it features a private collection of Western-themed paintings and sculptures and sit right next to the Celestial Seasonings Tea Factory, where you can visit for a free tour and tasting. Boulder is a great place for star-gazing - head to the Fiske Planetarium or the University of Colorado at Boulder for some excellent celestial sightings. Don’t miss Pearl Street Mall for awesome outdoor boutique shopping!

Colorado Springs

Colorado Springs, another major Colorado city, is located less than an hour and a half drive south of Denver. The biggest attractions in Colorado Springs are its natural wonders: Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak and Seven Falls. Garden of the Gods is a collection of red sandstone pillars that were formed over millennia and jut high above the surrounding landscape in peculiar formations. The park in front of the rocks has several different paths, many of them suitable for young children and seniors, so you can see the rocks from all angles. Take a hike on Pikes Peak or a scenic but slightly frightening drive on Pikes Peak Highway. The hikes to Seven Falls in Cheyenne Canyon are easy enough for young kids, and you’ll be treated with a spectacular view of the 181-foot series of seven waterfalls, cascading into each other in a zig-zag formation.

Other Must-Visits

Colorado is one of the best places for skiing in the U.S. In the late fall, winter and early spring, people head to popular sites like Vail, Aspen, Breckenridge, Telluride, Steamboat Springs, Copper Mountain and Crested Butte for some excellent skiing and snowboarding options. In the off-season, many of these places offer rides on the ski lifts for scenic mountain views, as well as alpine slides for a bit of summer adventure.

Another must-see is the Mesa Verde National Park - a historical treasure located in Cortez near Durango. It features 600 cliff dwellings that were occupied by the Ancestral Pueblo people for more than 700 years between 600 and 1300 A.D. The most famous is Cliff Palace, which has 150 rooms, 75 open areas and 21 kiva rooms. You really can’t miss coming here!

Also nearby, just east of Durango, is Chimney Rock National Monument, which encompasses nearly 5,000 acres in the San Juan National Forest. Ancestral Pueblos lived here as well, and you can pass ancient remnants of their settlement on your hike!

Finally, don’t miss a visit to Rocky Mountain National Park near charming Estes Park - it’s a national treasure that occupies nearly 266,000 acres of pristine wilderness.
