About the property

2 bedroom, 1 bathroom

The Cottage is small and rustic, but has all the necessities to enjoy your time in Leadville!

There are two bedrooms and one bathroom, equipped with a washer and dryer. There's a small kitchen and dining area for prepping meals or enjoying some local take out. It's just a few minute's walk to all the downtown activities and races. A perfect base camp for hiking, fishing, skiing, and racing!

Charlie's Cottage is our "home away from home." The Cottage is just the kind of place my father, Charlie, would have enjoyed in his retirement. There's a nice front porch and a small fenced back yard with a grill.

We love our furred babies, and we know how important it is to bring your furry family member(s) along on adventures. There will be an additional cleaning fee if we do allow you to bring your dog; however, this must be agreed to ahead of time.

About Katherine

We moved to Colorado in 2010, "sight unseen" as the result of an internet quiz promising to "find our spot." Without a doubt this is the best decision we've made for our family. We love camping, hiking, fishing, and just being outside.

Katherine purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Katherine chose Leadville

The Cottage previously belonged to friends of ours. We'd stayed there several times and used The Cottage for a basecamp when hiking local 14ers. When our friends told us they were selling the property, we knew we had to have it. "Charlie" was my father's nickname. Unfortunately, he was unable to properly enjoy retirement and passed away much earlier than he should have. But I know he would have loved The Cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

Charlie's Cottage is close to everything you'll want to do in Leadville. It's a short drive to skiing, 14er trailheads, lakes, rivers, etc. And it's just a few minute's walk to down-town. It's an old miner's cottage, but has been updated. The Cottage is small and cozy; a perfect little getaway.

Terrific! Family and dog friendly!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage had everything we needed for our wonderful stay in Leadville. We will be back because we loved this city so much. The location was great. We walked to the main street, local parks and took short drives to nearby sightseeing highlights. The owner Kat was quick to respond to messages and very friendly, welcoming and helpful. This cottage is family and dog friendly, which is why we loved it so much. Thank you!

Great location! You can walk to town in a few minutes, as well as the park and Mineral Belt trail access at the end of the block. The owner was communicative and helpful. Family and dog friendly, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back!

Cozy and convenient location

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming, cozy cottage in a great location for walking to downtown Leadville and skiing at Cooper. We have stayed here for spring break for 2 years now and are already planning our next stay. The cottage is small, but we had plenty of room with 2 adults, 3 kids, and 2 dogs. The cottage has everything you need to be comfortable (even sleds for the kids!) and cook good meals. There is a fenced backyard and a nice walking path at the end of the street, making it perfect for the dogs. Katherine is great to work with and very responsive. She is friendly and answers questions quickly. We will definitely be looking for another opportunity to stay here!

As advertised, no surprises.

  • 5 of 5

My 6 year old son and I stayed in this cottage for a quick weekend ski trip in February. We are both pretty low maintenance, so really just needed hot water, warm bed and WiFi. This place was way more than that! Great location and had everything that we needed. It is a very cool cottage that I imagine has quite a story, as it is evident that it has been added onto a couple of times over the years. I would not have any issie with staying here again.
