About Steve and Laura Tkach

Why Steve and Laura Tkach chose Leadville
Steve & Laura purchased the home in 1996 so our newborn son would have a place to create a lifetime of childhood adventures. It's a place where we could enjoy the outdoors without crowds and build memories with friends and family.

Beautiful property, great location
We came to Leadville primarily for the skiing at Ski Cooper so this property was ideal for our needs - very close to the mountain and very comfortable. Plenty of room for relaxing and plenty of beds - I would stay here again!
Great family weekend!
This cabin was perfect for my family weekend getaway! We enjoyed our time here and will definitely be back!😁
Perfect spot for our stay!
All was well with our entire stay - Steve was responsive and helpful in booking, and was quick with our deposit refund (always highly appreciated!).
The place was great for what we needed - 2 adults in separate rooms and 3 teenagers. The kitchen is on the small side, but still very functional. Heated bathroom floors were great (it was SUPER cold while we were there!), but it took me a day to figure out that's what the red "heat" switches were for in the bathrooms.
I'm not sure if it was operator error, but the TV in the downstairs bedroom didn't work. Luckily the wifi was fine, so I watched the Olympics on my laptop with only minor buffering.
The toilet paper could have been a little more than one ply, but if that's all we have to mention, I think we're pretty spoiled!
Thanks for the stay, Steve.
Glad you enjoyed your stay.
The radiant floors are really nice, especially in the morning. The rotary timer switches along with the heat switch in the bathroom allow you to turn on the heated ceiling fans to warm the bathroom.
The TV in the lower bedroom works, the problem was probably that it is on a "switched" outlet. I'll buy a plug adapter so the cable box and the TV can be plugged into the un-switched portion of the outlet. One ply is easy on the septic system - so the package says.
Great value for the family
Loved the stay at Lackawana B. My family and I were able to stay comfortably and ski the three days we'd planned, no surprises, no upsets, just a comfortable place to spend the time we weren't spending on the mountain. The kitchen was well-stocked with good quality table and cookware, everything was squeaky-clean, the towels were very nice.... Thanks, Steve and Laura, for letting us use your home!
Nice cabin in the woods
We loved our stay at your cabin. The place was clean and had a nice lay out for the rooms. My girls loved the loft area for them self. Close to town and all the 4 wheel trails we did. They have a laundry room to share, but the other unit never would let us in to use it as they locked our side for our entire stay. I would stay at this cabin again it was perfect for our family.
Beautiful surroundings, breathtaking EVERY DAY
Only down fall was that it was difficult to regulate temp of complex. We just cracked windows at night.
Just keep in mind, small kitchen, no pantry area, so bring bins to store food. Other than that we absolutely loved the property, four plex. Very clean.
We will definitely be returning.
Glad you enjoyed our place. As mentioned in our information guide, our place is heated with radiant floor heat. It is slow to heat up and slow to cool down. It's best just to set it at about 70 degrees and leave it. Regarding the smaller kitchen. For our personal use, we find it best to bring prepared meals when practical, reheat them, and spend limited vacation time doing adventurous things instead of cooking.
This vacation property is centrally located in the heart of the Colorado Rockies. Close to destination towns and world class ski areas and all that Colorado has to offer. As a local mountain getaway, it offers outdoor recreation, historical museums, athletic competitions and numerous civic celebrations and activities.
