Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Recently remodeled, cozy, comfortable furniture and beds. 1/2 block off Harrison Ave. (mainstreet) means an easy walk to dining and shopping! In the morning, head up to City on a Hill coffee shop and get caffeinated for a day of mountain fun! Our large front deck is a great spot to lounge in the sun with a cold beer at the end of a full day, meet people or just watch the world go by. Large back deck has great mountain views, gas bbq, and direct southern exposure. In the winter, walk to dinner or grab a movie in any kind of weather! The house is close enough to downtown resturants that the cold mountain air won't even have time to sink in before you are sitting down to a nice steak! Watch the snow fall from the big picture window in the living room. Make family memories playing games and cooking dinner in our newly remodeled and fully stocked kitchen. We left a few Victorian details, like original stained glass and the one dining room wall that depicts the original wood from 1888 when the house was built! The house once had 4 coal buring stoves~the old chiminies remain, but the house is now heated with trusty forced air! In the remodel, we found old sewing patterns stuffed in the walls for insulation and cigarette boxes hidden up in the bathroom, both of which are on display in the house.

About Jason

Jaycie works as a nurse and Jason a biologist. We moved to Colorado from California to experience the magic of the Rocky mountains and the quality of life that is possible here. We love loading the baby up in her sled and cross country skiing in the winter. In the summer, we love to explore alpine lakes, meadows, and all the historic mining sites. Riding bikes though the aspens or just relaxing on the porch with our friends and neighbors makes summer time here in Leadville hard to beat. .

Jason purchased this house in 2009

Why Jason chose Leadville

We were drawn to Leadville by its unpretentious style, the amazing views in all directions, the rugged beauty and town history, its proximity to world class ski areas, and of course Denver.. We love that our house is IN the mountains...all we have to do is walk out the door and we are surrounded by public lands.

What makes this house unique

We also love the convenience of being based right in town! Our street is quiet, yet we can pop into town without getting in our car in a hot second! We love sleeping on the back deck under the stars and relaxing on the front deck after a full day of outdoor activities. Jason loves the big kitchen sink and granite counter tops, and Jaycie loves the good water pressure in the shower!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much for the place. It was all great-- even nicer than the pictures, appreciated the simplicity, decor, the array of books --- may need to travel to Sedona next :), and location was perfect for what we needed. All a great fit for us. Random question, but where did you get the furniture in the living room..?... having been looking for some for our own place. Also, the back porch chairs were pretty unusable when we got there fyi, so may be worth a simple change.

Otherwise great stay and we'll keep it in mind for ourselves and others in future Leadville trips. Thanks and Be well-Rian

Cute, quick family getaway

  • 4 of 5

The house is an adorable little thing, but has high ceilings which make it feel very open. (Warning for tall folks - the lintel on the bathroom door is very low. My husband hit his head twice!) We stayed here with my parents for a wedding at Ski Cooper. We only had one night, but it felt relaxed and "at home". Everything was clean and we had everything we needed to cook breakfast in the morning. The mattress on the double bed was a bit "springy" or lumpy, but it didn't bother us much. Overall, a wonderfully Colorado-mountain place!

Nice location, decent accommodations

  • 4 of 5

This place is within walking distance of some great shops and restaurants. There is a pool and hot tub about 5 minutes away at the aquatic center. Queen for my wife and I, double for my son & my daughter slept on the couch. Everything nice.. Not luxury, but clean and solid. Good value and would stay there again! Thanks
