About the Property

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Our family of 6 splits time between our new home in Idaho Springs, Colorado and Seoul, South Korea. We figured why not share our home when we are away!

Why the Owner Chose Idaho Springs, CO, USA:
Originally, we were just looking at the communities here on the Summit to be our new home in the States. 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!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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 for 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?
