About scott Messersmith
While working on the road as a touring musician, Scott purchased Casa Colorado and began the arduous task of building his greatest creation, piece by piece. A few years later the vision came together when Morgan moved in and they decided to share their home, primarily as a B&B, and later as an entire house rental. By choosing to stay closer to home, they are able to spend more time shaping their vision for a more sustainable lifestyle. Both passionate about high altitude gardening, today they are a little bit farmer, artists, chefs, and professionals that wear many hats to complete the jobs on what they joke has become a mini mountain farm.
scott Messersmith purchased this House in 2002

We had an amazing stay in Colorado at this property. It was above what we expected and Scott was extremely helpful!
The Casita is perfectly put together. There are so many little features that make you feel incredibly cozy and at home. The house is well stocked with amenities. The location on the mountain is perfect. The views are incredible. Everything was very clean when we arrived and the owner was very helpful and responsive! I definitely recommend staying here.
Nice mountain retreat
Scott’s space is nicely situated just outside Nederland, and is full of great amenities. The place was well represented online and had a great fully stocked kitchen. The drive out to the place was a little tricky, but was communicated pretty clearly. Scott went above and beyond to ensure we had a comfortable stay, even when he was busy with other events going on. Highly recommend this place and may have to go back in the summer as well.
I very much enjoyed staying here and would definitely return next time I visit!
A beautiful space to relax
Loved this house. A quick drive from Denver but it'll feel like you really got away. Gorgeous master suite, bedrooms and views! A beautifully decorated home, everything carefully handpicked and special; a really neat vibe. Loved cooking in the big kitchen, enough resources to cook two elaborate meals (and then some). Fully equipped just as described. Hot tub was fantastic, pellet stove was super warm and rustic. The sleds and snowshoes were a really nice touch. The internet is slow and unpredictable, which gives you a great excuse to take a real vacation. Aim to fully unplug in this serene place. Scott was a great host, super attentive and responsive and did everything possible to make our stay easy and enjoyable. He was a real pleasure to talk to and put a lot of thought into making the space perfect. We had a wonderful time relaxing and would love to come back!
Glad that you guys enjoyed the house. I wish that you had mentioned that you guys had issues with the internet. We usually can reset the router and it works fine. I hope that you guys can make it back sometime. Thanks again.
The Casita is located about 7 miles outside of Nederland, Co and overlooks the continental divide. During the summer months you can enjoy hiking, mountain biking, white water rafting, zip lines, tennis( local courts in Nederland), or even trips to Boulder and Denver. 14 miles up the road is Black Hawk and Central City. These old 1800's mining towns have turned into quite the little bustling casino villages. The towns both have great historical buildings and shops and can be a fun visit. The nearest hot springs are about 35 minutes away in Idaho Springs and Hot sulphur springs are about 1 hr, 40 minutes from the house.
The Indian Peaks wilderness is about 15 minutes away, where you have unlimited access to a multitude of hiking trails and beautiful mountain, glacial lakes. We provide trail maps at the house for many of these amazing hikes.
