Property description

We are located in a quaint, functioning, Victorian town just 1 block from the historic downtown with shopping, dining, and museums. The rental comprises the 2nd and 3rd floors of the historic 1875 Mercantile Building. We are able to offer part of the space for a reduced rate if your party is less than 10! See our rates below for these different options. The first floor is home to the Rocky Mountain Miniatures retail store and the Dusty Rose Tea Room, a Victorian style tea room offering over 30 different teas and home made delicacies for lunch or tea.

Our guests are many times surprised by the spaciousness and cleanliness of the facility. We have spent a lot of time and effort to come up with the perfect blend of the modern and the old. The updated kitchen and bathrooms have slanted floors that creak and irregularly shaped doors. The furniture, a mixture of antiques and the new, had to be carefully measured to make it up the steep, narrow, grooved from use, stairs. The high ceilings and large rooms lend themselves to a feeling of being able to spread out.

The layout of the rooms offer a wonderful amount of privacy. Not only is there a table in the dining room (96' long - perfect for games, puzzles, and family gatherings), but another in the kitchen (for those intimate early morning or late night chats.) The bedroom with the king size memory foam bed is located in the northwest corner of the second floor (next to the main bathroom.) The other bedroom on this floor is located in the northeast corner and has a double bed, a day bed, and a single trundle bed. The third bedroom is located on the third floor, has dorners (for that Victorian feel), a queen bed with pillow-top mattress, and an attached bathroom.

We are a smoke free and pet free facility.

Children and families really enjoy staying here. The space if full of nooks and crannies, and we have not over-decorated so there are few things that parents need to worry about getting broken. We offer a high chair and a booster chair for our younger guests, as well as puzzles, games, and a few toys geared for their ages. And of course, with a dollhouse shop on the first floor, there is a dollhouse!

You will wake up to the scent of fresh scones, meat pies, lemon curd, and tea! Visit our website for the Dusty Rose Tea Room.

Come and see for yourselves all this wonderful space has to offer!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I have resided in Georgetown since 1999, previously having had the opportunity to travel throughout the Americas and Spain. Chris joined me in 2003 and while managing the Georgetown Mercantile/Rocky Mountain Miniatures store in Georgetown, as well as the Historic St. James Vacation Rental, have been able to continue our travels - to include Asia and the Middle East, as well as Europe and the western hemisphere. We appreciate the tranquility and the small town life in Georgetown. We especially enjoy sharing this with our guests who come to stay with us at the Vacation Rental.

Why the Owner Chose Historic District (Georgetown, CO, USA):
The location lends itself perfectly to the vacationing couple, family, or larger group. The town is a magnet for both the relaxed vacationer, the family get-away, and the avid outdoor person. We wanted to provide a base camp, so to speak, for the group, allowing each to do what they enjoy.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The facility is quiet and centrally located in an historic district of a small town. Nearby are year-round fishing opportunities, skiing, snowboarding, ATVs, river rafting, hiking, horseback riding, shopping, museums, restaurants, and a general small town feel. In the rental we provide books, puzzles, games, and local interest information, as well as the local papers and general information about things to do in the area.
