Property description

Secluded Mountain Home in National Forest. Only 30 minutes from Loveland ski area on the Continental Divide and 45 minutes from Winter Park, one of Colorado's premier ski destinations. Pack lunches to take to the slopes. Cook at home in this fully equipped kitchen. Enjoy many restaurants within 15 minutes. This secluded mountain retreat is nestled up against the National Forest and bordered by a gorgeous mountain stream. In warmer weather you will enjoy this magnificent outdoor setting by relaxing on the 1500 sq.ft. bilevel wrap-around deck, which overlooks the creek. From this location at 9200 ft. altitude, there is easy access from the property to miles of hiking and great access to multiple ski areas.


This smartly remodeled home can accommodate up to 12 guests. The master bedroom with a king size bed has a private full bath and double doors out to the deck. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and the third bedroom has day bed (with an extra pull-out mattress). These two bedrooms have access to the second full bath. The downstairs bedroom with two bunk beds, sleeps four and has private deck with its own entrance. The living room sofa opens into a upgraded and comfortable queen size bed.The living room is accentuated by a soapstone wood stove and rustic mantel. Large picture windows bring the lovely outside setting into the home.
Though seemingly remote, this home is a 10 minute drive from Interstate 70, the major east/west highway through Colorado. It is 30 minutes from west Denver, where you can enjoy all the amenities of a large city, including restaurants, theaters, shopping, golf, amusement parks. Yet you are also within 15 minutes of three small mountain communities - Georgetown with its Georgetown Loop Scenic Railroad tour, Idaho Springs with its hot spring, grocery store, many restaurant including Beau Jo's Pizza, gold mine tours, white water rafting, Zip-lining and many tourist attractions and Empire with Jenny's Cafe and other restaurants.

Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, and Keystone provide a variety of skiing adventures as well as small mountain town charm, boutique shopping and factory outlet stores. Central City and Black Hawk, are Colorado's gambling meccas. While some may enjoy a performance at the Central City Opera House, others might take a gold mine tour.
If you are an outdoor enthusiast, you will be enthralled by the opportunities for hiking, biking, white water rafting, climbing, fishing, golfing, zip lining and many others close at hand.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: My name is Russ Gates. I'm the proud owner of this lovely property. I'd love to share it with you. I'm 66, semi retired and have been in the office products industry for 40 years. I'm a devout Episcopalian. I grew up in Kansas City and moved to Colorado in 1976. I love the out of doors and this home provides me with so many outside activities.

Why the Owner Chose Downieville-Lawson-Dumont, CO, USA:
This is a cozy, newly remodeled home, close to a variety of activities. Many of my guests tell me they most enjoyed spending time on the 1500 square foot bi- level deck. Grilling, enjoying the spectacular scenery and the lovely sounding creek.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Secluded. Quiet. Tranquil. Yet close to a variety of activities.
