Peace & Quiet Convenient to Denver for Vegetarians!

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

For vegetarians only! Finally, a hilltop vacation get-away where you know your vegetarian lifestyle is the rule, not the exception.

Enjoy exceptional quiet, fabulous views, easy access, a fun mountain town, and the peace of mind that comes in knowing you are cooking in a home that has been cruelty-free since it was built.

The town of Evergreen is only a few minutes downhill and offers shopping, restaurants, and grocery stores, as well as a fine cultural life, seasonal festivals, a recreational lake, and miles of hiking trails and other mountain activities available.

Denver is about 35 minutes to the east and some of the world’s best ski areas are an hour to the west.

Blue skies, sweet breezes, friendly people, and a vacation home of your own — what more could you ask? Oh, yeah, a skillet that has never held a dead fish and an oven that has never cooked a big, dead bird! You can read further about our commitment on this point below.

The house sleeps eight — three queen-sized beds (two private, one sleeper sofa in the living room) and a day-bed and a futon in the open loft area — and has two full baths.

Washer and dryer; all linens provided.

Full kitchen with gas stove, food processor, juicer, Crockpot, etc.

Gas stove in the living room for ambiance.

Books, stereo, TV/DVD/excellent internet

To see more pictures look below!

The house was custom designed and built in 1999 by master craftsman Larry Strock of Lakewood, Colorado. It has many vaastu-shastra* features, including exclusively East-West entrances and Southeast kitchen. It has a wrap-around covered porch, knotty pine interior woodwork, and 360 degree views through the abundant windows. The hillside has a number of indigenous trees and native grasses. There is a feeling of serenity and solitude as the house sits atop the hill, even though there are several other homes in the area. You cannot help loving the experience of this place! The mountain road is maintained all year by the Town of Evergreen. Snowplows make their way up the mountain after each snowfall, so just wait a little bit if the road is snowy before you head out on a snowy morning. (Four-wheel drive is best in really snowy winter weather for the rather steep hills.)

*vaastu-shastra is the ancient Indian precursor to the Chinese feng shui, aimed at maximizing the harmony between human living spaces and the energetic environment.

Our Mutual Commitments:

The use of our house by and for people who care that meat has not been cooked or eaten in it is very important to us.

If you're not vegetarians, welcome! But please enjoy your meaty meals in town - there's lots to choose from.

We ask you to promise . . . That you will not have, cook, or eat meat in the house, including fish and poultry.

Comfortable Home in the Hills

  • 5 of 5

The house sits atop a small hill and has a wonderful view of the area around Evergreen - you can even see Mt. Evans from the main family room. The home is very spacious with a well-equiped kitchen. Very comfortable for our family of 4. Home is conveniently located near the city of Evergreen with a quaint shopping area, about 30 minutes to outer suburbs of Denver, and about an hour drive to Winter Park, Breckenridge, Keystone, or Copper Mountain ski areas. Owner is very responsive and was eager to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Great place for a family or small group to access both Denver and the nearby mountains.

Very comfortable and clean with nice views

  • 4 of 5

I enjoyed my stay. It was a peaceful place and even though it was in a neighborhood, it felt remote. It is a good 40 minute drive to Denver. Only somewhat negative thing was that there were no window treatments in the main living and kitchen space. Made me feel kind of like a fish in a fish bowl at night, wondering who might be looking in. Bedrooms had curtains though. Blinds would have been nice.

A perfect location and a warm home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for an extended weekend and wanted to be close to Denver while still being in a mountain setting. This house was perfect for that. The views are beautiful and the area quiet. We were just a few minutes from old, downtown Evergreen which is a great area. Many activities are close by. We had mule deer and elk IN THE YARD during the early mornings. While we didn't meet Katharine, she was very friendly in emails and over the phone. While it may not be fancy hotel with 1,000 thread count sheets, it was a great deal for a great place.
