About Penny Mackey

I grew up in Duluth, Mn. and moved to Colorado in 1987. I was a ski instructor with Vail Resorts and retired after 25 years.

Penny Mackey purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Penny Mackey chose Leadville

I bought this property because I did a lot of camping in the area when I moved to Colorado. In my opinion, Lake county is the best of the best in Colorado!

What makes this apartment unique

I fell in love with the views and the opportunity to try my hand at alpine gardening at 10,000 feet. This is my passion in the summer. Not to mention the awesome hiking trail right next to my house! I love the proximity to so many ski resorts without having to live in a "ski town"

Mountain Getaway!!

So happy we found this listing! Located in a newer neighborhood, the location and driveway were exactly what we needed for our off-road weekend. The apartment had everything we needed and Penny is a gracious hostess.

Wonderful place

  • 4 of 5

Penny has done a great job providing for the needs and comfort of her guests. The apartment is spacious and very well equipped. Since it's a basement apartment in high altitude, it can be cool, but the stove works well once it gets going.

Excellent place to stay; excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful Mountain Retreat is updated, comfortable, and convenient. It feels more like a home than just some place to stay. Penny is super friendly and very helpful when recommending sights in the area. The price can't be beat. I'm already looking forward to my next stay there!!

Perfect place and perfect host

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this quaint, comfortable home. Penny made us feel so welcomed and was great at assisting us with places to visit in the surrounding area. There are full accommodations within the apartment and a great patio area to play corn hole with others. The bed is very comfortable, the living room furniture is great to sit and relax on after a long day and there is even a office desk area. We are certainly planning on coming back to visit Penny soon.
