About the Property

2 Bedrooms (Sleeps 4-5 guests max)

LITTLE COTTAGE IN HISTORIC SILVER PLUME IS LOCATED IN CLEAR CREEK COUNTY JUST A FEW MILES FROM IDAHO SPRINGS, THE MOST POPULOUS TOWN IN CLEAR CREEK COUNTY.
SILVER PLUME IS THE CLOSEST TOWN TO LOVELAND SKI RESORT IF SKIING OR SNOWBOARDING IS YOUR THING. THE TOWN OF SILVER PLUME LOOKS LIKE IT WAS FROZEN IN TIME; OLD FACADES OF VICTORIAN ERA BRINGS YOU BACK TO COLORADO GOLD RUSH DAYS... The cottage was built in 1875 as far as we could research it. We found some old newspapers and books in the crawlspace area.

The cottage is comprised of 2 bedrooms furnished with a queen size bed each. One full bathroom has a new and beautiful claw footed tub and a new vanity. We were trying to decorate the cottage in Victorian /pseudo Victorian Style as contemporary furnishings did not work well in this historic property. The living room has a love-seat and 2 arm chairs and a desk. There is a flat screen TV on the wall across from the love-seat.
The kitchen is equipped with a new gas stove/range, new refrigerator, a microwave, a dining table/chairs for 4 guests and 2 arm chair with a small coffee table there. There is a stack-able new washer/dryer in the corner.


The cottage is in the middle of COLORADO FRONT RANGE OF ROCKY MOUNTAINS WITH EASY ACCESS TO DENVER (~45 MIN) AND DILLON (DILLON LAKE), VAIL, AVON, ASPEN AND WESTERN SLOPE.

There is an old Depot within a walking distance from the cottage where you can take a steam train to Georgetown and visit some mines on the way there. There is an old School House -Museum in Silver Plume. Find out its hours before you visit. Kids will like a little playground we have in Silver Plume. Adults may enjoy Apothecary bar that mostly is open on Friday and Saturday nights.

There are some beautiful trails in Silver Plume that can take you way up high to the elevation over 9000 ft. Another way to get "high" is to visit local green shop. We don't promote any marijuana smoking and it is strictly prohibited to smoke anything in the cottage on on the premises. We are family oriented and rent the cottage mostly to family with children. Kids will find a lot of movies and books at the cottage.

The nearest historic town is Georgetown, an administrative capital of Clear Creek County. You will find a lot of restaurants, coffee shops and museums there.

Dillon and Frisco are the next mountain towns after the Eisenhower tunnel.
