About the property

Little Pink House

Built in 1935, this little pink home had a complete remodel in which you will find only top-of-the line appliances and furnishings were used to refurbish this home. Throughout the remodeling, care was given to maintain the look and feel of a mountain getaway without sacrificing the comforts that modern amenities provide. This home will sleep 4 people in comfort. Ideal for a couple or small family. Situated within walking distance of downtown Leadville and the local Safeway, this home sits in a quite 'off the main drag' residential neighborhood. The house has electric baseboards for heating or you can throw wood into the wood stove located in the kitchen. We also have a large back yard as the house sits on a double lot. There is a fire pit built in the backyard...perfect for those cool nights or for s'mores!

About Susan Hunter Smith

We were looking for a mountain home that we could enjoy on a regular basis. After looking for sometime, we decided Leadville was the perfect choice. Our two girls have learned to ski, fish, ice skate, and build lots of snow forts! We hope you enjoy Leadville and our house as much as we do.

Susan Hunter Smith purchased this house in 2008

Why Susan Hunter Smith chose Leadville

Leadville has a lot to offer, but still feels like you are getting away. While it is only 23 miles from I-70, you feel like you are away from it all! Leadville has so much to offer...biking, fishing, skiing, ice skating, hiking, snowmobiling, antiquing, and much more. We chose this house because of the history. As many homes in Leadville, this one was moved from Climax Mine to where it is today. Not to mention, with 2 can you go wrong with a pink house!

What makes this house unique

Everything has been updated and remodeled. But, you'll still find the original things like the outside of the house or the brick in the kitchen.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Such a great escape. My husband & I had a wonderful time spending the weekend at your place! We loved the warm, family feeling of your home and had a blast in town. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Cute well-kept house

  • 5 of 5

This cute pink house was perfect for a weekend away for my husband, daughter & I. The bed was comfy and the views on the mountains were amazing! We went snowmobiling just north of Leadville which was an unforgettable experience! Aside from that we spent most of our time "downtown" which was super close by. We happened to visit during the Ski-Joring racing weekend and we enjoyed watching that crazy event!

Great time.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying in Leadville with our 2 grandsons. The house was in a good location, was very clean and well stocked. The price was very reasonable for the area. It snowed while we were there and was just beautiful.

At an elevation of 10,430ft above sea level this historic mining community sits in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Situated at the headwaters of the Arkansas River this old mining town lies between the Sawatch range to the west and the Mosquito range to the east. There are over 19 14'ers between these two ranges and Leadville is in the middle of it all!

With over 310 days of sunshine a year the area enjoys very moderate temperatures. Winters are not what you would think at this location/elevation due the the lack of moisture in the air. It's cold, but not 'bone chilling', and locals have been known to only wear flannel long sleave shirts on many winter days. The summers are quite enjoyable with temperatures that seldom reach into the 80's and there are very few bugs this high up.

Leadville is the highest incorporated city in North America and the county seat of Lake County. It is also one of Colorado’s largest historic districts. It is a National Historic Landmark District consisting of over 70 square blocks and was designated by Congress in 1966. There are numerous walking tours of the town and magnificent Victorian architecture.

With year around activities for the whole family Leadville will become your preferred destination for family fun and adventure. So go ahead and take a look at our website and home. We are sure you will find Leadville to be as charming and relaxing as we have over the years.
