A one-of-a-kind chalet with an unbelievable view and amenities. The wrap around deck provides extraordinary vistas in every direction. You will see nothing but lake, mountains, and stars as you relax in the brand new hot tub, kept toasty all the time (no guilt necessary as our solar systems offsets 100% of energy use). Our 4Br, 3Ba home appears to hang over Barker Reservoir, which makes our guests feel like they are on a cruise ship (sort of!) ! We sleep 12 easily. (3 queen beds, 1 full bed, 4 twin bunk beds). We have a port-a-crib for a wee little one. We have Dish network for TV, wireless internet, a loft office area with an elliptical trainer & a magical view certain to inspire your workout. Our full kitchen, updated with granite and new appliances 9/16) has everything you need. We have a new washer/dryer and a 360 ft well with water so pure you'll want to bottle it and take some home!
The Lower level has a separate entrance and a deck with an incredible view that is hard to imagine. It also has a family room for the lower level bedrooms.
Hiking, biking, skiing, snowboarding, ice skating, tennis, pickle ball, fishing, bird watching, horseback riding, mountain climbing, technical rock climbing and everything in between is available; or just lounge around in the middle of one of the most beautiful places on earth! And.... Nederland has 15 eating and drinking establishments and unique shops 2 minutes away by car or 20 minutes walk on the lake trail. We have a real movie theater on the weekends with first run movies, popcorn $1.00, candy and drinks at prices from the 1960s.
You can see the trails of Eldora Ski Resort which is a 10 minute car ride (you can rent all the ski and board gear you need there). Hiking trails abound in the area including a few that start at the back door! Fish away in the chilly waters just a hop, skip and jump from the house. You will never see boats or swimmers in the pristine lake….!
The house is ideal for family vacations. The dining table seats 12 and the kitchen has all the gear and appliances to make hearty and festive meals just like at home (including an outdoor gas grill). The layout of the house is perfect for multi-family stays or to separate the kids, giving mom and dad peace and quiet.
If you are coming to ski or snowboard you probably know the cost is half that of the big name resorts. And Eldora is known for getting great snow all winter long. A hidden and little-known treasure! And, after your soak in the hot tub, be sure to plop into the Panasonic Massage Chair!
Experience the Colorado Rockies close up and personal while only 20 minutes from one of the coolest cities in America, Boulder. An hour drive puts you in the heart of Denver where you can enjoy world class arts, sporting events and city life.
We are OK with house and well trained dogs. (Please, no smoking in the house and no cats are allowed. Smoking or cats will incur a $500 cleaning fee as the owner is highly allergic.) We are 420 friendly (outside smoking please) and happy to share information regarding the new Colorado cannabis laws and safe usage recommendations. There are 3 state registered shops in town as well as 2 liquor stores.
SPECIAL NOTE: Most of the time when the calendar shows unavailable we rent the lower level. It has its own private deck and entrance and can sleep up to 8. This space has a living and eating space, 1 bathroom and a mini kitchen, excluding and oven and cook top (microwave, toaster over, referring/freezer and coffee maker. I would not plan to make elaborate meals and it is quite limited. Send me a note if this is of interest. Only available when the entire house is not available.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

We are an easy 20 minute drive to Boulder; 40 minutes to Denver, 40 minutes to Estes Park/Rocky Mountain National Park via the scenic Peak to Peak Highway, and 15 minutes to Blackhawk/Central City Casinos. The Eldora Ski Resort is within sight and a 10 minute drive. We walk 15 minutes into our unique town of Nederland via the beautiful lake path, or or take a quick 2 minute drive. You can walk on trails from our backyard or take advantage of the many beautiful trailheads in the area. This area is famous for all its wonderful outdoor activities; and we are right in the hub of everything.
Be sure to drink plenty of liquids (I double my intake and keep doing so while in the mountains) starting a few days before your arrival to help avoid altitude issues. We are over 8000 ft above sea level. And, during the winter, an all wheel or 4 wheel drive vehicle is highly recommended.
Year Purchased: 2005
About: All of our children and grandchildren live in Nederland, Boulder and Denver. That's why we came here. We stayed because we fell in love with Nederland. Our home is our own little piece of paradise in the sky. Because we live in Florida most of the year, we decided to let others enjoy our 'forever home' when we are not around. Our family members are at your beck and call for any help you may need, and to provide 'local' knowledge to make your stay even more enjoyable. We want to hear from our guests what more we can do to make your vacation a most special one.
Why Nederland, CO, USA:
We fell in love with our home the first time we set foot inside, and bought it immediately. The view was the selling point, it can't be beat. Our home is private, yet close to everything. The beauty, convenience and comfort of this custom made mountain retreat is addicting. Our home is your home while you're here. It is clean, comfortable, and cozy. We provide everything you need but your toothbrush. You can feel the love our family has poured into our home and we want our guests to share our little bit of paradise in the sky.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Most important is the view. Lots of homes are in the mountains, but our house has the view. It feels as though the house hangs over the pristine crystal clear mountain lake that is right outside our door. From our wrap a round deck we see the lake, the mountains, and the Continental Divide. Boulder Creek meanders it's way down to Boulder through one of the most scenic drives in America. (fishing and picnicking are right out the front door too, no need for a car). Hike or bike the trails out the backdoor, or walk into Nederland along the beautiful lake path. We're just minutes from skiing, hiking, biking and everything else you could want in a mountain retreat. My favorite thing to do though is sit on the deck, 'chill', and enjoy the beauty of this special part of the world.
