Amazing, fantastic home but you will struggle if your a wheelchair user.

  • 5 of 5

Firstly I can highly recommend this amazing home. We headed to Evergreen from the UK to visit my brother and his wife who live in Denver. Wanted something special and this home popped up. There was 5 of us. I'm in a wheelchair so anybody in that position knows it can be hard work finding a good home. I wouldn't recommend this to anybody who needs a lot of assistance. It's not ramped so you'd need help. The bathroom wasn't ideal but I got by with a shower chair. American homes all have vanity units at the sinks so it's makes it impossible for a wheelchair user to brush your teeth but I knew that I'd have to adjust, usually with a bucket. America loves there very high beds. I own a home in Florida and I had to get a new base made so I could transfer to bed..... so my husband had to carry me to bed. I wouldn't make a huge thing of this as to be honest not many wheelchair user would head to evergreen.

Not quite a good wheelchair hiking place. But all that aside I'd say it's certainly a wow home and the views are certainly something dreams are made off. My family loved it and did not want to leave. We wanted peace and we got it. But, had an emergency and the 5 of us couldn't get a mobile signal so needed to travel to Denver to make a call. How we ever got by without mobiles before I'd never know. But, we plan to make trips to visit my brother a regular thing (he's very homesick) we will always book this home. Resturants and shops are close no problems where it was. Everyday we woke to a family of deers at the fence. Had chipmunks and a elk came to say hi. I've never seen grown men get so excited about watching the deers play........ my brother and husband are clearly easily pleased. But don't hesitate and book this home.

Perfect for a family getaway, and responsive owners.

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect house for our family to spend time together - there were a number of open living areas for all of us to hang out together, and it was a very kid friendly house (we had ages 3-16). While we had a small plumbing issue the day we arrived, the owners were very responsive and it was fixed quickly - I was very appreciative of the quick turnaround and the concern to address it right away. As we have family in the area that we would like to visit, I would definitely stay here again! In fact, I'd love to check it out in the winter - the view of the mountains covered in snow from the fantastic sunroom I'm sure would be beautiful!

Million dollar view, great floor plan and convenient location

  • 5 of 5

The home is comfortable with good size rooms. Love the back porch with mountain views. We saw lots of wildlife-mule deer, birds, chipmunk, foxes, and elk. Our adult children and their spouses took up residence in the basement where they had ping pong, football, a bar, media room and 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. My husband and I took the master ensuite on the main floor. Main floor had an additional 2 bedrooms with another bathroom. House is well located 5 minutes from highway with major grocery store, pharmacy and filling station. Also close to town. We will rent here again! Thank you Ray!

I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay. The photos of the views on this listing don't do it justice. It's stunning--from every window of the house. The house was set up great, too--bedrooms for all, comfy beds and all the basics we would have needed. We had deer, stellar jays and magpies to keep us company every day. The location can't be beat--close to Red Rocks in Morrison, we did the Lariat Loop/Echo Lake, Breckenridge and Denver. So great to come home to this place after a long day of site seeing! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Watching all the wildlife was very fun. The views were spectacular! The house had lots of space so we never felt too crowded. There were really no major problems just little things, like a few cobwebs, having to hold the handle to flush the toilet in the master bathroom, some internet problems. All in all it was a very good experience.
