5 bed, 3 bath - sleeps 12+ on three levels. 30 mins to ski or 30 min to Denver

Our home is perfect for those coming to the Summit with friends or family. We are within easy distance of 5 ski resorts: Loveland, Arapahoe Basin, Eldora, Winter Park, and Breckenridge. Each is between 30 minutes to 60 minutes away. When you want to get out, we are located just 1 mile off I-70 outside off Idaho Springs with its historic downtown, restaurants, and shopping. While the skiers head to the slopes, others can be in downtown Denver (30 miles) with all it has to offer. Our home sleeps up to 14 people. At 3,700 sq ft spread over 3 floors, it provides families and friends both privacy and plenty of communal gathering places. Amenities include a wood-burning stove, ping pong table and gaming table. Grocery shopping is just 5 minutes away so going out or getting food for a crowd is no problem.

When the ski season is over there is plenty to do. We are minutes away from white water rafting, world-class hiking, zip-lining, stocked fishing ponds, great mountain biking, and other outdoor fun.


The property is not reserved until the owners have received BOTH a rental agreement and half the rental rate. Tenants will pay lodging tax, VRBO/Homeaway fees, insurance, and cleaning fees. Half the total is due upon booking, and the other half 30 days prior to booking. Cancellations made more than 60 days out will be refunded 100% percent, 30-60 days will be refunded 50%, and less than 30 days will not be refunded. The cleaning fee is $300. We do not accept cash or check. (If you choose to bring a pet, please note there is a fully refundable pet damage deposit required.)

Please note that holidays are quick to book so request your quote early! We look forward to sharing our home with you!

About Ryan & Liz Hammond

Our family of 6 splits time between our new home in Idaho Springs, Colorado and Santa Cruz, California. We figured why not share our home when we are away!

Ryan & Liz Hammond purchased this House in 2014

Why Ryan & Liz Hammond chose Idaho Springs

When we walked into this house we fell in love with it right away. It is the perfect house for hosting family and friends both in its unique layout and its beautiful but convenient location. It can accommodate so many activities both on and around the property we just had to make it ours. We'd love to share this special place with your family and friends too!

What makes this House unique

Besides the location, what we love is just how functional the house is for our large family gatherings. In the summers, we will often have 10 or more people visiting our family of 6! This house gives plenty of room for fun with the cousins but allows us our privacy as well. We thought this feature would be especially appealing to those looking to reunite with other groups and families. It's also accessible to an ideal amount of various activities for all tastes, close to the airport, and boasts mountain living with modern amenities and easy access to skiing, the airport, and the city. What more could we ask for?

The house has everything and the owners were so accommodating, from answering questions to allowing us to check out later which was a huge help to our family of 14. We will most definitely be renting this home again soon!!

                                                                  Great vacation

                                                                  Darrell B.Plano, TX (suburb of Dallas, TX)

                                                                  Please let the owners/ caretakers know that the living room ceiling fan began to smoke when we turned it on. It was quickly turned off but wanted them to know.

                                                                  Also, the attic bedroom was not very well cleaned, crumbs in and under the twin beds, dirty quilts, dust bunnnies on the floor. The rest of the house was neat as a pin.

                                                                  Lots of bedrooms, but no live tv

                                                                  jan b.freeport, illinois

                                                                  The house is clean and has many bedrooms which is great when you have a lot of single people. I've never stayed at a house where a bar of soap isn't included in each shower. I'm sure people would be willing to pay an extra $5 and have that provided for. Also there is no hair dryer on the premises. Usually a rental will provide one, which is adequate, but none here. It would be good to know in advance so we would pack a hair dryer. The directions to the house have you drive up a very steep hill that has two very sharp turns. We were taking a hike one day and walked down the street and we found another road up to the house - not nearly as steep. We could never understand why there was never any traffic past our house. The road is always cleared of snow. The biggest gripe that we had was that there was no actual "live" tv. there is a very small tv in the living room and it is hooked up to a dvd player and there is access to hulu and things like that. Our group always travels this particular time so we can watch the super bowl together - you can imagine that we weren't very happy with having to watch the game on a 12" computer screen. There should be something in the amenities of the house that lists this (I've seen this listed before in other rentals). The ice maker also did not work so we had to purchase ice (another thing that should be listed). I would recommend this rental, but just make sure you know what you are renting. The ping pong table was an added bonus. There were lots of items in the pantry (left by previous renters) which is always nice. Pots and pans were very nice.

                                                                  Perfect home!

                                                                  Priscilla M.

                                                                  We loved the house! It had more than enough space for our family of 7. The basement is perfect with plenty of games and activities while hanging out at the house! We also loved the fact that the house is so close to EVERYTHING. We've stayed in Brekenridge before and didn't enjoy it as much due to all the driving we had to do. Everywhere we wanted to go was just like one exit away! We will definitely consider staying here again! Thanks so much for welcoming in your beautiful home!

                                                                  A warm, welcoming home for all!

                                                                  Mark P.Westcliffe, CO

Along with our six adult children, spouses and 4 grandsons (16 in all), there was plenty of space for fun but a little privacy when desired. The little boys loved the fenced yard and treehouse! Plenty of things to do at the house or in the nearby towns. A great location for our early Christmas and taking in the Georgetown Christmas market and lighted forest train!

                                                                  Beautiful accommodations and lots of room for large gatherings
