About the property

Hideaway on Clear Creek only minutes from from Downtown Georgetown

The Cricket is a rustic historic cabin hidden up Spring Street alongside the rushing Clear Creek and nestled among an aspen grove. While appearing to be off in a mountain valley, the Cricket is a mere 3 minute walk from the center of Downtown Georgetown -- AMAZING!!

The Cricket is a compact 360 square foot tiny house with all the amenities you expect, including a queen size Murphy bed, cable TV as well as Blu-Ray and wifi. It recently went through renovations to make it wonderfully comfortable - new bathroom, interior and exterior painting and extensive yard work.

Perfect Location, Perfect Size.

  • 5 of 5

The Cricket was perfect for me, my son and my dog. It had everything we needed for a comfortable 3 nights. The Murphy bed was REALLY comfortable, and made it difficult to get out of bed every morning. We woke up to 5 deer in the yard on Sunday morning, which was a pleasant surprise. The creek is absolutely amazing and provided my son and I lots of playing opportunities.

We will defintately be back up again.

Peaceful Retreat in a Beautiful Valley Mountain Town

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I LOVED this bungalow. We stayed over Christmas and had >20" of snow, so a couple days snowed in AND LOVED IT. It never felt too small or cramped. I'd definitely come back, especially to tackle Mt. Saxon or Bierstadt.

dreamy location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here. The rushing creek was a treat to sleep next to. The house was the perfect size and SO CLOSE to downtown Georgetown! Everything was very clean and well-kept. What a treasure! I only wish we would have remembered to write in the guest book. Will have to make the drive from KC again to stay here!!!

Escape at the Cricket!

  • 5 of 5

Clean and tidy for sure, and you will want for nothing. Neat place for my wife and I. The rush of the creek is constant that allows easy sleep. Private yet close to town.

We love The Cricket.

perfect retreat!

  • 5 of 5

It's not a big fancy home, but it's the perfect tiny home, lol. It was all great, the home had the perfect location in this cute little town on a beautiful creek that plays the best music. Great history. This is our 2nd time in Colorado and we ran out of time again. So much to do. Train rides, zip lining, hiking and horseback riding, if you get a chance, take a trail ride. We loved the town, fresh delicious homemade ice cream, the little brewery (which was puppy friendly), the great little dog park, the fact it's all within walking distance was great. We will be back, count on that. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality, Robin was a true delight.

charming creekside cabin

  • 5 of 5

Simplicity at its finest. The Cricket has everything a visitor needs and is very clean. Set right on the creek, all a person can hear is the rushing water, and it makes one feel far removed from people and homes, yet the town is in walking distance. We loved watching the birds swoop over the creek, and the hummers were active. Every window has an outstanding view. 5 stars!
