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.

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 South Central

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.

Typical Mountain Two Bed Room Cabin

  • 4 of 5

The house is Cozy typical old fashioned weather appropriate. Kitchen is super well equipped with all gadgets a good cook will look for; the laundry has top notch equipment as well. Bathroom is not insulated thus during winter taking a bath is quite chilling, although hot water never ran out.

If you look for technical advancements like internet, TV, even cellphone signal is weak to none. Thus this stay has really been a true get-a-way from all the city's entertainments, topped by this special place called Leadville which is almost like paradise so close to heaven. Leadville has a great location very close to many outdoor activities within minutes.

People in the town is special just like Elizabeth who was the kindest lady, well organized and detailed in every way. Thank you Elizabeth and God bless your family with abundance.

Wonderful experience at the "Shooting Star"!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful "gals weekend" in Leadville to attend the Holiday Victorian Home Tour and we could not have been more please with our experience at this lovely home. The owners have thoughtfully remodeled it so that it still has the charm of a Victorian home, but with modern amenities......including cozy in-floor heating under the original wood floors. The living room even had two adorable mini-Christmas trees to add to our holiday cheer. Location is less than a block from Harrison, the main drag, and an easy walk over to the Mineral Belt pathway. The beds were comfortable and the house was spotless. We would highly recommend this home for any season in Leadville.

Great place to base a mountain adventure

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and well kept and stocked with almost everything our family of 4 needed. It was nicely renovated, but still has that old charm that fits Leadville. Walking distance to coffee, food, and shopping was the highlight of this location. You can go out on a mountain adventure and come back knowing you can just walk into town and get what you want without having to drive anywhere else. We enjoyed our visit.

It was perfect !!!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and i rented this house so we could attend the Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race. Upon arrival, we were under the charm. The house was perfectly located and exceeded our expectations. Beautiful, cozy and charming, it had everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again if ever we return to Leadville.

Lovely Leadville home

  • 4 of 5

Charming little house. Very close to town. Great option for 2-4 people.

Could benefit from wifi as in town coffee shops seem to be unreliable. After spending a long day hiking, biking or climbing sometimes it's nice to just watch something on Netflix to wind down.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your feedback. Yes, we've gone back and forth on wifi. It's quite expensive and often not that good in Leadville. If we wired the house, we'd have to pass that cost on to our guests and since so many folks (including us) come to Leadville to disconnect, we so far haven't hooked it up. But we really appreciate your recommendation and will continue to consider it.

Plain and simple

  • 3 of 5

Place was clean. Pictures were accurate. Mattress was uncomfortable and from a different era. Missed basic amenities such as dishwasher, working air conditioner, TV, Radio and Wi-fi. Bathroom (despite shower leaking) along with kitchen have been recently renovated.

Owner's Response: Yes indeed...our sweet, simple 1880s Leadville home is just as it is described in our listing...no wifi, tv, dishwasher or AC. While we appreciate your feedback, we would respectfully recommend that you read vacation home descriptions carefully and if you require certain amenities for comfort, that you be sure to rent a home that offers them :)
