Our beautiful home is nestled in the beautiful national forests surrounding St. Mary’s Glacier in the St. Mary’s/Winterland neighborhood. The natural setting allows for all sorts of outdoor activities. In the winter you can enjoy backcountry skiing, snowshoeing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, or if you’re brave, you can give winter camping a try. When the snow melts in May, opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, 4x4 off-roading, backpacking and camping abound. The base of St. Mary's Glacier is one mile away. There are also two private lakes in the neighborhood that can be fished.
The nearby quaint town of Idaho Springs boasts unique shopping and is rich in frontier and mining history. Try your luck at panning for gold after taking in a tour at one of the local mines. Run the rapids of Clear Creek with one of the several rafting companies right in Idaho Springs. Afterwards, soak in the hot springs and baths of Indian Springs. Or you can just spend the day shopping and visiting some of the several museums around town that are interesting for the entire family. There are several restaurants in Idaho Springs as well. BeauJo’s world famous pizza is an excellent choice or you can try one (or two) of the microbrews at Tommyknocker’s.
After a long day of invigorating activity, shopping, or exploring, relax in our spacious two bedroom – two bath newly remodeled home. The living room has all of the comforts of home including a flat screen television with DirecTV and DVD player. If you’ve come to get away from the television, feel free to push the flat screen against the wall and forget it’s there. You can play some music, stretch out on the couches and enjoy the warmth of the wood-burning fireplace while reading your favorite book. The larger couch also folds out into a queen size bed. The beautifully updated kitchen has everything you’ll need to cook your favorite meals. Also downstairs is a full bathroom equipped with an amazingly relaxing rainforest shower head. Follow the aspen log staircase upstairs to the second bathroom and two bedrooms. The second bedroom sleeps two on a comfortable queen size bed and the master has a larger king size aspen log bed. From the master bedroom or the main entrance downstairs the large front deck can be accessed. Soak all your troubles away and enjoy the amazing scenery in the luxury hot tub situated on the deck.
So get away for a while and stay in our wonderful home. It won’t be a vacation you’ll soon forget.
