About the property

Beautiful House Located On Top Of Hill Overlooking Leadville And Rocky Mountains

Keep your money LOCAL! :) This rental is owned by a local family who resided in Leadville since the 1980s. The money spent here will be recirculated into renovating homes, improving rental conditions, shopping at local small businesses and local social programs. This is managed by a local family-owned company called Top of the Rockies Vacation Rental, LLC. If you need additional traveling services on top of lodging accommodations, we can provide rides to and from the airport, nearby ski resorts, nearby outdoor attractions (Mt. Elbert trailhead etc), nearby hot springs and more. Just simpy let me know :) I can provide bus routes to help you get to this rental.

It is a gorgeous 2-story house with the upper level all to yourself including a private entryway. This rental has 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths that can comfortably sleep 2-6 people. You will have beautiful accesses to Colorado's infamous Rocky Mountain scenery throughout. It comes with a spacious furnished outdoor patio that is designed to enjoy fresh air with a propane fueled grill and a 4-person hot tub. It is spruced up with some solar powered lights to enhance your vision when using it at night. The living room is equipped with a 50' flat screen television with DirecTV, Blue Ray DVD player, and Nintendo Wii. Please keep in mind, there is a stairway leading up to the rental. Peppermint oil is provided to pursue an organic physiological effect on you by gaining up to 26% more oxygen to your brain. It can potentially help with nausea and dizziness. Previous renters have said it helped them a lot :)

The Master Bedroom has a queen size bed with its own full bathroom, closet, 50' flat screen television on top of a huge electric fireplace mantel, and DirectTV. The second bedroom has a double size bed and a loft with a day bed. There is another full bathroom located next to it. This bathroom has been completely remodeled with new stone tiling all throughout. This rental is equipped with 3 water heaters so hot water will not be an issue whatsoever. The shower panel comes with back pressure sprays, waterfall feature, and a nozzel. With this bathroom equipped with a mini heater, you can have a blast pretending you're in Hawaii under a waterfall.

Additional Amenities: A queen size blow up mattress, additional sheets, pillows, and towels can be provided as well as a cot if you decide to have additional guests (no additional charge).

There is a complete kitchen with fridge, stove, coffee maker, slow cooker, microwave, toaster oven, George Foreman grill, and dishwasher. The house comes with washer/dryer and free strong wireless internet. We supply plenty of additional spices and treats to help enhance your experience and to reduce all the mundane shopping. In addition to the house, you will have unlimited access to the backyard, which is fenced in, equipped with a picnic table, hammock, and bonfire pit. We have been continuously adding improvements to the rental. This rental is absolutely purrfect for animal lovers. Unlimited supply of wood will be provided if you wish to have a bonfire.

This house is located less than a block away from the mineral belt. It is common to exchange friendly hellos with outdoor enthusiasts while relaxing on the outdoor patio as they ride into town from the mineral belt trail. It is perfect for biking, running, walking dogs, longboarding, snowbiking and more. There is a national forest behind the property that is perfect for hiking, dog walking, snowmobiling, and dirtbiking. It is located on the outskirt of town with tons of forestry, city and mountain views all at once.

There is a lovely skill hill for small children and toddlers at the next to Colorado Mountain College.

There are two ski resorts nearby:

Ski Cooper - the perfect resort for beginners and children. There is no long exhausting walks or wait to any slope there. Everthing is placed close together for a fun day without the additional stress and fees. It is a 15 minute drive from here.

Copper Mountain Ski Resort - This is an infamous ski resort for riders of ALL levels. This is more of a ski town with all kinds restaurants, slopes, retail shops and more. This is a more expensive option and usually hosts family-friendly events throughout the year. This is a 20-30 minute drive from here.

There are two wonderful hot springs nearby Leadville that are absolutely must-experience for any trip to Colorado.

Cottonwood Hot Springs & Mt. Princeton Hot Springs - they are located in Buena Vista which is a good half an hour drive from here.

There is an ample off-street parking. We have a paved driveway that can fit up to 4 vehicles as well as a dirt parking on the side that can fit up to 3 vehicles in the summer season. We are currently working on making the side parking available in the winter season. With that being said, we welcome snowmobile, dirtbike, and ORV enthusiasts to rent this place without fear of lack of parking.

Why Sharlene Crockett chose South Central

Leadville has always been a small, energetic city in my eyes. The mountain range is simply breathtaking and I can never seem to get enough of it. The air is crisp and fresh which is wonderful for all the scenic hikes surrounding this city. Leadville is full of opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts to gather and enjoy all of its perks including dirt biking, off roading, fishing, mountain biking, hiking, white water rafting, skiing, snowboarding, cross country skiing, and back country skiing.

The mineral belt trail is less than a block from here which means you can simply hop on your bike and ride off on a 11 mile adventure. Easy access to ORV trails 1/2 block from here.

There is strong Wi-Fi signal thorughout the house in case you have to work during your travels or attend to school assignments.

Nintendo Wii is provided in the living room for fun family activities along with family friendly movies and games.

There is no cable in the children's room, but a nice VHS with plenty of children movies.

The hot tub is a wonderful feature added to the rental to allow guests to relax after a fun day playing in the snow or exploring the Rockies.

We provide natural altitude sickness ailment such as peppermint oil. For moderate to severe cases, supplemental oxygen tanks are provided.

As for cleanliness, the property manager routinely disinfect all pillows, mattresses, bath mats, and rugs. It is our personal promise to provide the freshest linen and towels and highest sanitary environment possible for our guests.

This property has fantastic views of the Rocky Mountain Range of Mt Elbert and Mt Massive whether you're watching TV in the living room, grilling on the patio, relaxing in the hot tub, waking up to the sunrise in the 1st bedroom, or pampering yourself in the bathroom.

We also provide a large fenced in backyard for pets to run around in. They'll be sharing it with my dogs, but I can keep them inside as you let yours run around and play :)

My new favorite place in Leadville!

  • 5 of 5

I have been traveling to Leadville a couple of times a year for the last 8+ years and this place is easily my new favorite place to stay. It was clean, warm, and inviting. It had everything that I could've needed or wanted. It had a great layout, and is dog friendly - which is a big plus for me! The location is great and I love off-street parking. The hot tub was a nice touch too! I had two people in my party this time, but my family of 4 (& friends) could be very comfortable there. The host was very helpful and friendly. I will definitely be back!

Thanks for a wonderful experience!

Nice place

  • 5 of 5

Our three small families converged for the weekend. The place worked well. Clean , tidy, good kitchen, nice beds and baths. Bonus to have the hot tub and deck. We'd return.

Wonderful visit

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just what our family needed. Much more space than the pictures show. Very clean. Watching the sunset in the hot tub after a long day skiing was priceless. Our kids loved it and we did too. We didn't have any problems. Sharlene was really nice and easy to work with. She is even returning a forgotten item by mail. You really can't beat this place!

Totally Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We brought a group of friends up to Leadville for the ski joring event (which was amazing) and this place was perfect for us- especially being dog friendly. Sharlene couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating and we are already planning to come back next year! (As soon as we can book it, we will!) I bet it would be amazing in the summer too, but we got to enjoy the snow instead. I would highly recommend this spot.

We enjoyed our stay.

  • 5 of 5

The kitchen was fully stocked and the owners were kind enough to shovel the driveway after more than 2 feet of snow had fallen. We loved how close to skiing it was and the hot tub was perfect. Thanks!
