Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 5. (Minimum 48 hours notice needed to rent.)

Beautifully remodeled and sunshine-filled 800 s.f. miner's cabin. 1 block from Harrison Ave (main street) with 3 comfy beds (1 queen, 1 full, 1 twin trundle) and 1 deluxe bathroom. Spacious living room with vaulted ceiling and mountain views. All furniture and the bathroom fixtures are current -- you won't find any of the lumpy couches or mattresses that are often a little-too-charming hallmark of some older vacation houses. And the radiant heat under the beautiful wood floors warm the place right up in colder months. The eat-in kitchen is stocked with all you'd need to make a great meal. Sun streams in from the south and west-facing windows and makes the front porch a great spot for morning coffee or evening drinks almost any time of year. Only one block from the finish of the LT100 and two blocks from the 12-mile Mineral Belt Trail -- paved for biking in summer and groomed for XC skiing in winter. This little house is perfect for a getaway to the mountains for a family, group of friends, or couples.

We want our guests to know exactly what they're getting (a wonderfully updated, comfortable, and relaxing getaway), so although these things are noted elsewhere in this property description, we wanted to repeat here a few full disclosures re: things folks tend to ask about:

CHECK-IN/OUT: Check-in is at 4pm and check-out is at 11am. Earlier/later may be possible but you'll have to check with us just beforehand.

DOG GUESTS: We will consider extremely well behaved single dog guests who will not be left unattended/uncrated in the home. Be sure to include the pet in the reservation request and send us your pitch about why s/he will be the best guest ever.

WIFI/CABLE: The house is equipped with wifi but not cable. We like to keep it low tech and peaceful for us and our guests.

PRICE NEGOTIATION: We are unable to negotiate on the price, but we do 2-for-1 on kids under 12 and we waive the extra guest fee for children aged 2 and under.

SMOKING: No smoking of tobacco, weed, or anything else is permitted in the house or on the property, including the back patio and the front deck.

WOOD STOVE: For potential damage, extra required cleaning, and insurance reasons, we're sorry but the wood stove is not available for use by guests.

About Elizabeth

We are two professionals--1 college educator and one international wildlife conservation planner, into outdoor sports, well traveled, and parents of 2 enthusiastic dogs and one indifferent cat. We split our time between Boulder and Leadville, taking every opportunity to bike, run, hike, backpack, cross country name it. We'd be happy to give you the scoop on where to get out to play. We also can point you in the right direction for coffee, brews, and restaurants.

In our wanderings across the country and around the world, we have stayed everywhere from 5-star hotels to huts made of cow dung, so we know what it's like to be guests and appreciate all of the wonderful things it has to offer!

Elizabeth purchased this house in 2014

Why Elizabeth chose Leadville

We bought this house almost a year ago out of a genuine love for Leadville and its great community, fascinating history, and beautiful surrounds. With endless XC skiing options in the winter and backpacking/hiking/biking in the summer, it's hard to beat Leadville. We also love that the community continually celebrates its boom town history and is proud of its rugged charm. Leadville is genuine through and through. In the house, you'll find a big binder of maps and brochures to help you take full advantage of your vacation.

What makes this house unique

We wish we could take credit for the fantastic remodel of this home. The guy who did it didn't cut corners and overhauled the house from top to bottom. It's still charming and cozy, but with a great layout, current, comfortable furniture, and a very clean, updated bathroom, complete with bath bubbles provided. All systems and appliances are as good as new and the proximity to everything can't be beat.

Perfect!!! Charming, comfortable vacation rental.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect. It was clean and very cozy. We had easy access to everything Leadville had to offer. The beds were comfortable and the house was decorate in a very charming manner. It had everything we needed including a crockpot, (we forgot ours at home). I will see if home is available next time I come to Leadville. Loved it!!!! It even snowed while we were there.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Your home was perfect and ideal for the 3 of us! We thought you made it beautiful - the bedrooms, sunroom and kitchen were all full of charm, warmth and cleanliness. You have a very thoughtful caretaker! We found it an easy enough drive to Copper Mountain, 30 min. I’m sure we’ll be back. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!
