About the property

Enjoy getting away at this 2-bedroom, 2-bath custom vacation rental cottage in Dumont. Year-round Mill Creek is steps outside the front door with over 400 feet of water frontage on the property. Towering pine and colossal aspen trees surround you in every direction, while park-like landscaping adds to the ambiance.The 723,000-acre Arapaho National Forest borders the property with a great number of hiking, fishing, and recreational opportunities, ensuring an exciting getaway for up to 4 guests!


Master Bedroom: Queen Bed | Bedroom 2: Full Bed

Enter the newer stone and stucco cottage to find a very comfortable home. The exposed beamed, vaulted ceiling provides a sense of openness to the house and offers room for your spirit to soar.

Please enjoy this property with the deepest respect for the fragile ecosystem. You very well may spot a mountain lion, moose, or bear, along with numerous other critters and birds during your stay.

Two carefully appointed bedrooms and baths await your arrival. Large windows allow you to commingle with nature, the creek, and natural environment.

A Jotul wood-burning stove in the living room area adds to the warmth of the home both aesthetically and functionally. Melt into the comfortable sofa while enjoying the fire and a movie.

In the kitchen, you’ll find attractive leathered granite counters, ample cabinet space, all the necessary cooking and serving utensils, a dishwasher, stainless steel refrigerator, and an imported Italian 5-burner stainless steel convection range.

The lower level has a guest room with a full-sized antique bed and a full bathroom with a walk-in shower.

Up the stairs, you’ll find the Master Suite. This open loft-style bedroom features a queen-sized bed, telescope, an expansive walk-in closet, and walk-out balcony overlooking the landscaping, creek, and forest. An absolutely gorgeous 5-piece master bath includes 2 vanities with sinks, a deep bathtub, walk-in shower, marble and ceramic tiling, and a bubbled glass block window.


The small community of Mill Creek Park, surrounded by the Arapaho National Forest, is a combination of private full-time residents and part-time vacation homes. This is one of those places where lifetime memories are made - it is the perfect destination for a honeymoon or romantic getaway!

The home is located at the end of Mill Creek Road, affording both quiet and privacy. The foliage is abundant with many varieties of native wildflowers making it nearly tropical, a rarity in dry Colorado. With extremely limited light pollution, stargazing is a popular activity.

Located in Clear Creek County, the recreational opportunities are vast with easy access to world-class skiing, rafting, zip lining, museums, restaurants, snowshoeing, and the famous Georgetown Loop Railway. Situated midway (3 miles off I-70) between the metropolitan area of Denver and the Alpine Resorts of Summit County, this home makes a great starting point for any Colorado adventure.

Take a 15-minute drive east to Idaho Springs and tour the Argo Gold Mine, go river rafting, or take an exhilarating zip-line tour. There are a variety of options for shopping and dining in the area.

Drive 25 minutes west to discover the wonderful city of Georgetown. Hop aboard the Georgetown Loop Railroad and enjoy a scenic train ride through the mountains. Visit the many museums, shops, and restaurants in the area, including The Happy Cooker for outstanding breakfast.

Don't forget that you are close to Loveland Ski Area, A-Basin and Keystone! Grab your skis and have a great day on the slopes to finish off your vacation!

Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We first arrived at night and although it was dark, you could already see and feel the charm of the location. The interior is incredibly homey, well-decorated and so comfortable! When we woke up in the morning... WOW! We were blown away by the scenery and sheer beauty of the place. I almost did not want to leave to go to Breckenridge! Our weekend getaway was perfect in every way and we would definitely stay here again - especially in a different, warmer, season.

Wonderful Relaxing Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a nice little mountain getaway, this cabin is a wonderful choice. It's quaint and has everything you need, everything is updated and the heated floors are a nice touch. It was beautiful in the winter and I bet it's even better during the summer months.

I do have a few words of advice for individuals booking this cabin. It is a mountain cabin. Like others have mentioned, if you're arriving during the winter months, you might consider having a 4W or AWD vehicle. The roads are plowed and your hosts do a great job shoveling for you but it is Colorado and you're a good 10 minutes or so drive from I70--plan accordingly.

The bedrooms aren't very private as they are quite open--glass doors, open loft, etc. If you're with loved ones it's perfect but just keep this in mind if you're going as a group but still looking for privacy.

It took us about 45 minutes to an hour to drive to both Breck and Keystone--we were driving on a holiday weekend so it may have been a bit on the busy side.

The only advice I have for the hosts: Because service is difficult to obtain so far up in the mountains, you might want to print a binder of sorts with the standard home info and check-out process--just in case! Also, Pam/cooking oil is a must lol!

Thank you for a wonderful weekend!

Quiet and cozy getaway with amazing scenery!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommended for a wonderful visit to Colorado. Location was central to everything! We were able to visit Breckenridge with just a short drive, ski at Loveland Pass which is just minutes away, make a 15 minute drive to the casinos at Century City and ride the Georgetown Loop railway that was just down the road. Beautiful home in a quiet setting with lots of wildlife and nature around you. The owners were quick to respond to any question we had and worked hard to make us feel welcomed. We will definitely be booking again!

Quiet & Peaceful, Great for Cooking

  • 5 of 5

This property was clean, comfortable, warm and so peaceful. The property owner is really accessible, easy to talk to and beyond gracious. She went above and beyond and gave us great suggestions for things to see in the area.

There is no wifi, but you may not even have cell service at all. We did not so were not able to contact our hosts. Have all entry instructions printed out before you get there!

GET AN AWD VEHICLE IF YOU'RE VISITING AFTER OCT 1. I really asked around about this to the Evolve staff, the car rental staff, and friends in Colorado. It seemed no one could make this decision for me (as is life) but assured me I'd be fine. Well, we got stuck once, swerved on the road a tiny bit, but ultimately yes we were totally fine. There wasn't even that much snow on the road! Maybe a dusting, but the rental car couldn't take much of that. I wish we'd had the peace of mind with an awd and it was a mistake that only I made, but wanted to put it here in the review that's a bit of a windy high road up to the cabin so bear that in mind.

There is a DVD player that got a lot of use when we were staying there, it's really cozy to build a fire and watch a movie. I recommend renting from red box or bringing your own movies you might want to watch.

While we didn't get to enjoy much of the outside since it was snowy and cold, the property is so beautifully landscaped and the creek is just fabulous. It's definitely smaller than I thought but oh so cozy. I'm not sure I'd recommend going with more than 4 people or with more than 1 kid. It was perfect for a couple.

1st class accomodations in a tranquil setting.

  • 5 of 5

My son,nephew and I really enjoyed the park like setting. The creek wrapped around the house and provided nice background music as we slept.

The house is secluded but still only 5-10 minutes between towns and 45 minutes to Denver.

Everything inside is upscale and the kitchen has the nicest marble counter .

We will be back.Thanks for sharing your beautiful home.
