Property description

Victorian Cottage in Central City, CO is a unique historic property. It was built some time before 1864 shortly after Colorado Gold Rush of 1859 began. There are some original 1864 photographs at Denver Public Library depicting the house. We have some copies of them at the property.
There are two bedrooms furnished with queen size bed each. There is a twin size leather pull out in the living room for one adult. Full kitchen has everything to prepare meals. One full bathroom has an antique bathtub.

The house is decorated with some truly antique pieces and some real paintings. Beautiful Swarovski chandelier is decorating the Master bedroom; antique wood stove and antique chandelier in the living room and some antique furniture bring you back to Colorado Gold Rush days 150 years ago...

Enjoy beautiful hill/mountain views from the large partially enclosed patio. Have a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening and enjoy a beautiful panorama of the historic town.
We rent this house mostly to Central City Opera musicians and singers during summer opera festivals.
The house is located on a very quest street, close to most attractions of the area.
