About the Property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Living Room, Kitchen, Deck, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

All you need to bring is your clothes and groceries. The HideAway is complete with all the essentials of home. The Perfect Vacation, Honeymoon, or Writer's Retreat -- Wonderful Seclusion, Breathtaking Views of Mountains and Plains, Natural Beauty all around, but easy access to fine shopping, restaurants, art museums, etc -- the Best of Boulder. Be 'Away from It All' but still near civilization (just 12 minutes to town).

The Hideaway Unit 2 is a full apartment located at 6700 feet with stunning scenic views of mountains and plains. Wonderfully appointed, this 1000 square foot, two bedroom space is the perfect scenic spot to work from. It is secluded but an easy drive to Boulder and modest 37 miles drive to central Denver. Cell phone reception is very good for most carriers and an internet hook-up is available.

Eldora Ski Resort is within 20 miles. Boulder is a mere 12 minute drive; the selection of museums, libraries, recreation, shopping, galleries, restaurants, and other cultural activities is virtually endless. CU, NIST, and NCAR are minutes away. Great RECREATIONAL options are nearby: hiking galore, Rocky Mountain National Park, cross-country skiing. Central City and Black Hawk gambling is about 35 minutes drive away.
Laundry Service: Arrangements can be made to have access to the laundry room for stays of 1 week or more if desired.
Lowell and Bonnie, owners/managers, reside on the lower story of the structure. These 'mountain gnomes' are available to help should there may be any problems.
4WD: Four wheel drive or at least all wheel drive is recommended year round and REQUIRED during snowy periods in winter. The ½ mile driveway has some steep sections as well as some rougher sections that some smaller cars might not do well on. The HideAway is at an altitude of 6700 feet. It is also recommended that if at all possible you arrive during daylight hours for your first drive up to the house. These are mountain roads and can get a bit confusing if you are not familiar with them after dark.
The property is at an altitude of 6,700 feet, not usually an altitude problem but for some rare individual it could be. Drink plenty of water. The mountain areas have some inherent dangers, such as rocks to slip or fall on. You may also be treated to the site of an occasional rabbit, raccoon, fox, deer, elk or even a bear or mountain lion. Renters are responsible for their children and others they bring onto the property. If you are not used to the mountains take it easy on your first hikes. Most of all have a great time.

If you enjoy the outdoors, the foothills above Boulder is a great place to stay. Hiking, mountain biking, snowshoing, rock climbing or just sitting quietly and enjoying the wildlife are just a few of the activities you will enjoy here. Boulder Falls is just up the canyon a few miles, fed by mountain snow melt from North Boulder Creek, it is a spectacular site to see. Boulder's Farmers Market open every Saturday and Wednesday during the summer is a great place to brouse for the freshest in foods and also great crafts. Chautauqua Park with its auditorium and community house offers great entertainment as well as educational programs, not to speak of there fine dining and hiking trails. The quaint town of Nederland is 15 minute drive from the Hideaway. It has great little shops, restaraunts and a unique culture all its own. You will want to be sure to take Peak to Peak Highway to Estes Park and of course while you are there visit the Rocky Mountain National Park. Black Hawk and Central City are also popular attractions with the Opera House and gambling. These are just a few of the attractions in the area.
