About the property

River Front 4 Bedroom in the Colorado Mountains - Hot Tub and Sauna Stream side

This RIVER FRONT property is a one of a kind, 2,400 sq. ft. home is situated on 3 acres. Fall River flows the entire property with spectacular views. Relaxing or sleeping to the sounds of the River is wonderful. The home is very private but so convenient to shopping, skiing, hiking, biking, etc. Relax in the Hot Tub right next to the River or enjoy the sauna with amazing views of the River. This beautiful home nestled in a river valley with National Forests within walking distance yet only 3 miles to downtown Idaho Springs or 35 minutes to Denver or 15 minutes to Loveland Ski slopes. The home has large southern view windows for lots of natural sun light but made private by towering evergreen and aspen trees.

This can be a serene executive retreat or a relaxing friend and family getaway that you must see to believe. Come into the home thru the ground level Entry Entertainment Room with leather couches, a few unique Colorado touches, and a 55 inch TV.

Coast upstairs to the main floor with its open floor plan for dining and entertaining with wraparound deck. The kitchen is open to the living room with rock gas fireplace and dining area with seating for 8 to 10. The gourmet kitchen boasts hickory cabinets, granite, and stainless steel appliances. Sit on the beautiful leather couches in front of the fire.

Also on the main level is one of the unique features of the home… the Zen Coffee (or wine) Atrium overlooking the River. This amazing gathering place, adjacent to the kitchen, allows for 5 or 6 folks to enjoy a serene or festive passing of time with the sunshine beaming in.

The private upstairs master bedroom has a king-sized bed, large TV, private deck with river views, and a private bathroom with tub and shower. Another bedroom is located on the main floor with a queen bed and full bath a few steps away. Another bedroom in on the entry level with a queen bed and full bath adjacent. The River Room bedroom is also on the entry level and has an incredible view of the River. The River Room can double as another place to sit and engage or letting the teenagers have their own space. The River Room has a queen bed but is large enough to accommodate 2 more guests by inflating the queen air mattress allowing for 10 guests. All bedrooms have large TVs and very comfortable memory foam mattresses.

Four bedrooms and three bathrooms make this an ideal home for larger groups. The house is equipped with Dish Network and satellite Wi-Fi Internet to provide information and entertainment options.

Comfortable deck furniture make this the perfect place to hang out and watch the humming birds and river and bask in the sun. A large gas BBQ grill completes the deck. The 5-6 person Hot Tub is located right next to the River and private to the outside world.

This home is perfect for the outdoor adventurer, skier, biker, urban wanderer in Denver, brewery lover, or for those seeking relaxation. Couples, families, friends, kids all can keep the pace they find best suited to them at the cabin. National Forests encompass most of the countryside. The convenient location of the house puts you just minutes away from so many things including Denver. This is a such a fun and relaxing place and location for all the seasons for a few friends or a family or a wedding, or business retreat…to gather for enjoyment, bonding, and relaxation. The Pine and Aspen welcome you all the year.

We have another property that has been very successful with consistent 5 star ratings so we found this one up the road and remodeled it to fit our needs and our guests needs. Colorado properties on rivers are rare this close to Denver so we couldn't resist fixing it up for others to enjoy. Frankly its always hard to leave!

Its always about the location and the home that makes you fall in love with it. This property has the very best location and is a special home that sits on a beautiful river. What else can we say... its a great place.

Loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it here! There were 4 adults and a 2 year old. First, there are some toys in the lower level that our little guy LOVED. Loved the fireplace, hot tub, sauna, outdoor fire pit, it was so great. We would go into town in the morning, and spend the afternoon at the house. The grill worked great, and there were many extra bonuses like oils, salt, pepper, spices, ketchup and mustard. Also, the kitchen has every pot and pan and utensil that you need! Many towels for everyone, and the beds are SO COMFORTABLE! Thank you Thank you!

This property had it all.

  • 5 of 5

The setting right on the river was relaxing. The hot tub and sauna added so much. The living spaces were separated by floors which accommodated our 3 generation family of 9 perfectly. The kitchen was fully equipped and the proximity to grocery stores, shopping and restaurants is excellent. There’s also plenty of marvelous hiking and attractions for all. We’ll definitely be back 👵🏻

Spacious and Private

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do this home credit. It was well stocked and pleasant. The stream is a major player in this home. We enjoyed the spacious deck and grill. The sauna, hot tub and kitchen were well used. There is a nice fire pit with fire wood provided but the real winner for most of us was the hammock beside the stream. We all had a very nice vacation.

This is our second year we do this as our Christmas present to our kids Who are older. When we were deciding where to go this year it was unanimous to come back here. Sleeping with the windows open hearing the creek in the background is so cool. It's close for so many things if we have any problems we justcalled Bruce and Annie The hot tub is very relaxing in the evening

Beautiful Relaxing vistit

  • 5 of 5

Bruce and Annie's house is Gorgeous!! It was exactly what we were looking for during a much needed vacation. The house is beautiful with tons of natural light it was easy to relax and feel at home. We particularly enjoyed the Coffee Atrium overlooking the river. It was lovely to spend the early morning and late evenings relaxing to the sounds of the river. The wrap around deck, fire pit and hot tub give you plenty of reasons to enjoy the outdoors and the beauty that Colorado has to offer.

Thank you for opening your gorgeous house to us for the weekend! It was perfect!
