Owner responsive, could use some TLC
One of the owners, Dana, was very good with communication. The condo is in a unique little community and was situated nicely for skiing at Loveland Ski Area. The book containing information about the condo, the area, and restaurants was great. The condo is nicely stocked, particularly with kitchen and laundry supplies. The tiled showers were good. We believe if the condo received a little TLC, it would be much more appealing. Some areas of the walls are in need of a good spackling job and fresh paint. The carpet on the stairs is also in need of replacement. Also, my wife dropped an ice cube on the floor in the kitchen area and she used a paper towel to wipe it up and the towel was black when finished. The floor could use a thorough cleaning. The radiant heating indeed takes awhile to warm up, as detailed in the book, but perhaps the owners should consider keeping the temperature at a warmer setting than 60 degrees upon arrival. The gravel parking lot also has some serious potholes, but this is no fault of the owners. All in all, our stay was enjoyable, but attention to detail would make the condo much more appealing. I hope the owners consider some of our suggestions.
We are glad your stay was enjoyable. We appreciate your comments. You are correct that the condo does need a fresh coat of paint. We recently installed cable TV in the bedrooms and surround sound to the main living area TV as well as hi speed internet and upgraded beds throughout. Additionally, despite our efforts, some folks leave their skis/poles, snowboards, and bikes by the bottom level entrance and sometimes they are brought upstairs which results in damage to the walls which we try to spackle and touch up. We plan to get the condo repainted in the spring. The local painter we use is unavailable until spring as he works at a ski area in the winter and skis on his days off. We replaced the well-worn carpet on the stairs two years ago, but it takes a beating because folks do wear their ski boots, hiking, biking shoes inside. We shampoo it regularly and it is vacuumed after each rental. The gravel dirt roads, also contribute to the carpet wear, but as you note, that is beyond our control. We use the condo occasionally and a dirty kitchen floor is uncharacteristic after our cleaner has finished. Many renters note how clean the condo is upon arrival. We will get with our cleaner and discuss your comment. The radiant heat temperature upon arrival is something we appreciate feedback on. When we set it at 65 degrees, some renters have noted the upstairs bedroom is very warm. We will try 62 degrees and see how that works for folks.
Thanks again for the feedback and we are glad you enjoyed your stay in Georgetown.
Best Regards, Dana & Stephen
We had an awesome trip. The condo was very cozy and just as described. The host was very prompt to answer all of our questions. And, as others had mentioned, we were very impressed with how well stocked the condo was.
The town was very cute and friendly. We would definitely recommend.
Awesome location with everything you need
This condo was perfect for a weekend getaway. It has plenty of room for 7+ people. We stayed there over MLK Weekend and loved it. I planned a getaway for my brother in law before he gets married and invited some of his friends to come. We skied at Loveland Saturday and Sunday. Georgetown is a beautiful little town in the mountains. It snowed 6 inches while we were there and loveland got a foot of snow. Georgetown has everything you need in it. It has breakfast dinners, lunch and dinner spots and small grocery store along with 2 gas stations. The neighbors at the condo were friendly and welcoming. The whole town was pretty friendly. When we first arrived we were driving around at 8:00am looking for a place to eat and a local rolled down his window and asked if he could help us find our condo or if we needed directions to something. The Missouri License plate must have given us away. I would highly recommend this place to stay. It was very affordable and was fully furnished. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook and having 2 bathrooms with 2 showers is nice. A+++
Great Condo! Our family of 6 had a wonderful time!
Condo was perfect for our vacation. Probably the best stocked one I’ve ever stayed at. Owner was great!
Love this condo and sweet lil town. Everyone is so polite and welcoming. Will definitely be back. Dana is super nice and very accommodating.
Met and exceeded our expectations. Clean, spacious, good location, etc.
Georgetown is nestled in between some of the most majestic peaks in the State, which of course means endless trails to pedal & climb, slopes to ski, streams to fish, raft & paddle, ride a train, shop,relive history, enjoy accommodations to relax in, and eat in some of the finest restaurants around. Make Georgetown your base while skiing this winter. We're only minutes away from world class ski areas. Georgetown has managed to keep its Victorian charm with many homes and buildings rich in this architectural style. We offer a variety of unique shops, boutiques, restaurants, and overnight accommodations owned by individuals who also enjoy this beautiful mountain setting. Remember, you can't see Georgetown from the highway, take the Georgetown exit 228 from Interstate 70, turn right at the 4-way stop, and drive on down to town only a minute away. Guanella Pass Scenic and Historic Byway provides a refreshing auto trip, bike ride or hike along a 23-mile alpine route in the Pike and Arapaho National Forests. The Byway is accessible in less than an hour either from U.S. Highway 285 in the town of Grant, or off Interstate 70 at the Georgetown exit-#226. The road is now entirely paved, though large RVs are not recommended on this mountain byway. Please drive SLOWLY as many people prefer to bike or hike this spectacular area. A great hike, x-country ski, bike or jeeping road is the old Argentine Central Railroad bed. This road starts approximately 2.5 miles off of Guanella Pass road, taking you westbound to the top of Mt. McClellan. From the top, look directly at Grays and Torrey's peaks, two more of Colorado's fourteeners. There are extensive backcountry trails leading from the summit of the pass through the Mount Evans Wilderness Area and Geneva Basin. From the summit, it is possible to take a day hike up nearby Mount Bierstadt (14,060 feet) or Square Top Mountain. In the winter, many of the hiking routes turn into backcountry cross-country ski trails. By mid-September, the Guanella Pass Scenic & Historic Byway is one of the premier places to view the turning of the aspens. Along the 23-mile route, you'll see swaths of quaking, shimmering leaves creating golden waves along the mountainsides. This Scenic & Historic Byway, however, is equally spectacular throughout the year. Early in the summer tiny alpine flowers cover the ground. These hardy plants, often less than an inch high and smaller than a dime, can take 100 years to grow and have to withstand intense solar radiation, freezing temperatures and constant, punishing winds. Later in the season, Geneva Park is home to fields of blue columbines, Colorado's state flower. The Waldorf cutoff just outside of Georgetown eventually meets the abandoned Argentine Central Railway Bed. This 16-mile narrow-gauge railway, known as the "Stairway to the Stars," was built in 1905 by Edward Wilcox to access his mines on Mount McClellan. It passed through Waldorf and terminated in a mining tunnel called the Ice Palace, which was filled with ice formations and was a popular tourist attraction. The road is awesome for mountain biking and hiking! Trout fishing is a favorite pastime in Clear Lake, South Clear Creek and Duck Creek. There are five campgrounds and two picnic areas along the Byway maintained by the U.S. Forest Service. Residents and visitors alike are reminded of the fragile nature of the Guanella Pass Scenic & Historic Byway. Wildlife and vegetation are precious to us all and respect for this environment will ensure its fruitful nature and survival for future generations to enjoy. Georgetown offers much for the visitor to experience. This is a wonderful, small, victorian town with plenty to do and see. From galleries, ice cream parlors and gift shops, to the interesting history that put Georgetown on the Map. Please come visit! For over 30-years, the Georgetown Loop Railroad, Inc. has run the Georgetown Loop. We look forward to having you as our guest and we hope to see you soon.
