THE PROPERTY

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 LOCATION

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!

Lovely Retreat

Our family loved this cottage! Beautiful spot to explore, close to skiing areas, and cozy/relaxing interior. We will return to see what adventures each seasons bring.

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!
