Beautiful mountain setting

  • 5 of 5

The Holts provided the perfect place for us to relax and enjoy the beautiful Colorado mountains and fall colors. They thought of everything and made our stay very enjoyable. Loved to sit on the swing under the gazebo and listen to the babbling stream!

Wonderful stay over Labor Day weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The only bad part about this stay was that it wasn't long enough! It was peaceful, restful, beautiful and just what we needed. Howard has built a wonderful little retreat with many thoughtful touches in the decor and craftsmanship. I would highly recommend this place to someone looking for a getaway to simply recharge and do nothing, as well as to those looking for adventure. My husband and I like to fish and caught a total of 26 trout between the two of us at Turquoise Lake! We're beginners when it comes to river fishing but apparently there are big ones to be caught in the rivers that run through the property as well. We would love to stay again!

Another great stay at this Leadville cabin

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this cabin multiple times before and love it every time. This visit was a guy's fishing weekend and it was perfect as usual. Good relaxation in the cabin and good fishing on property as expected.

The Holt Guest House: beautiful and well-maintained...great views and proximity to hiking trails!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at the Holt Guest House for the second time, and we will be back. The cabin itself is large, comfortable, clean, well-maintained, and well-stocked. We just bring our food, clothes, and hiking gear. Howard and Maureen Holt are wonderful hosts and very helpful (and we love their Frisbee dog, Rosie)!

The property is right on a beautiful river great for fishing, and it has lovely views of the river and the mountains. It has a great deck with an outdoor fireplace and grill. It is also close to all kinds of outdoor activities on Turquoise Lake, which is huge and stunning with trails, camping, and a boat ramp. It is outside of Leadville which is a great little town in which to shop, eat, or hang out. Our favorite activity is hiking and the cabin is close to many of our favorite trailheads, including the trailheads to hike Mount Massive and Mount Elbert (Colorado's highest peak). The summer wildflowers and views from the summits are amazing. We love the Fancy Lake/Missouri Lakes loop trail and the trail to Notch Mountain with a view of Mount of the Holy Cross for their solitude and beauty. After a long day of hiking, it's great to soak in the huge tub, play pool on the pool table, or just veg out. The kitchen is fully stocked and big, and the laundry room is great for washing up. I have recommended this property to everyone I know who loves Colorado hiking, fishing, biking, etc... and who wants a comfortable place to relax after all the outdoor fun!
