Evergreen Meadows House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bath, sleeps 2 - 10. Guesthouse 2-4

Welcome to our Next to Nothing, Close to Everything , Rocky Mountain Home in beautiful Evergreen, Colorado! Colorado Dream Vacation®

When we were searching for our dream home in beautiful Evergreen, Colorado,

we were sold, the second we climbed the stairs into the main living area and set eyes on the view. The sweeping vista is framed by the softly swaying green-tipped branches on the trees that give way to the magnificent sight huge granite outcroppings, snow-capped mountains, and bright blue skies as far as the eye can see. We were instantly mesmerized, a feeling our guests report experiencing themselves time and time again. The only homes you'll see from here are on other mountains, not next door!! Here you can rest, relax, and breathe deep, knowing all you need in order to enjoy yourself is the key!

The house, over 2200 square feet, sits on a sprawling 4.25+acre estate, joined by over 1100 acres of park land :

• 3 bedrooms, including a master with a king bed and en-suite bath & flat screen TV, guest room with queen bed, Kid's room with queen bed plus a sleeping loft with queen bed

• 2 ½ bathrooms

• A fully-equipped kitchen

• Dining room - table for 10, plus 3 bar stools at the breakfast bar

• Living room - open to dining and kitchen

• Loft - a second living space filled with a queen Sleeper Sofa,TV, games, and music options

• Laundry room

• Hot tub

• A private breathtaking view of the sun rising and setting over the surrounding mountains!

The main floor features an open-concept design, with the kitchen, dining, and living room areas all connected to allow friends and family to gather and enjoy each other's company. Also on the main floor is the master suite, laundry room, powder room, and a huge deck with dining table, overlooking the mountains.

Part of the home's charm is it's feeling of tranquility and privacy – you can't see any other homes from your perch on the deck, except for those on other mountains, far in the distance – but you're still close enough to town (about 3 miles) to conveniently attend to grocery stores, shopping or dining at one of the nearby restaurants. This unique location allows a blend of solitude and opportunities for socialization, making it perfect for most any family, group, or other fun-filled getaway.

Also available, is the unique guesthouse: an open-loft bedroom upstairs, with a King Bed, provides additional square footage and an overall airiness, mimicking the breathtaking altitude outside. The living area of the guesthouse offers a queen sleeper sofa. From the walls to the ceiling to the bathroom, everything is custom. The guesthouse is heaven with it's own private hot tub, and you're invited.

The outdoor area surrounding the physical property is every bit as enthralling as house and guesthouse. The house sits on 4+ acres and abuts parkland that totals over 1100 acres of gloriously untamed wilderness. One of our favorite things to do is just sit on the deck and relax. It's easy to forget your cares when you feel the pine-scented wind softly ruffling your hair as the sun lazily drifts through the clear, blue sky. The sights and sounds here are second to none, with critters of all shapes, sizes, and colors coming and going as they please. We have elk, deer, chipmunks, fox, and all kinds of birds. In September 2012 we saw a mama bear and her two cubs crossing the road, coming home downtown from Evergreen. Hot tub aficionados take note: while drinking in your share of the cool mountain air, you may be visited by Fox E. Brown. Our resident friendly fox has kept us company through a few hot tub excursions and beautiful sunsets, grooming himself from his perch on the rocky outcrop that juts out over the tub as we soaked. Don't worry, he never jumps in!

While most people think of mountain destinations like Evergreen as a seasonal experience, there are so many things to do and places to go within a short distance that Colorado Dream Vacation® is truly is a year-round destination. Summer time is a great time for fishing, hiking, bike riding, checking out local festivals and mountain parks. Kids have a great time at Dinosaur Ridge, or Heritage Square in Golden! Heritage Square Amusement Park in Golden is about 25 minutes away and has a 220 ft double zip line, go karts, boats, golf, an arcade, and rides including a ferris wheel and tilt-a-whirl, and all kinds of fun things to do! The zoo in Denver is phenomenal too! Right around Evergreen, there's canoeing, paddle boats, and tons of walking/hiking trails in Evergreen and the Lake. In the fall, don't miss the Aspens and the leaves turning to the fire neon gold! Absolutely stunning! There are so many great roads with outstanding scenery to take short trips, up to a full day trip, returning to Colorado Dream Vacation®, and the warmth of the hot tub, with the view! Winter, of course, is skiing for the whole family, about an hour away in Breckenridge, A Basin, Keystone or Winter Park. Nearby Echo Mountain caters to snow boarders, and there's always old fashion sledding on the property. Evergreen Lake is so close and there's still so much to enjoy there! Ice fishing, ice skating, hockey, along with of course snow men, and snow fish, and whatever you can imagine making! Spring brings snow melt, which is a great time for white water rafting! Spring is beautiful with the spring flowers, and the smell of newness in the air! Horseback riding is great fun virtually all year long, and indoor swimming is at Wulf Recreation Center in Evergreen.

Don't forget how close we are to downtown Denver too! Professional hockey, football, and baseball are 30-40 minutes away! Red Rocks Ampitheater is about 20 minutes away with a history of world class musicians taking the stage. Don't miss the view of Denver from here, or the museum that in the lower level-it's amazing!

I could go on and on about all the great things there are to see and do in the area, so close to the house and cabin, yet you'll feel a world away, when you get home from the day's activities, slip into the hot tub, with a beverage of your choice, watching the sun go down!

In June 2012 we received the first short-term rental permit issued in Jefferson County. It was a difficult permit to attain, but we managed it, and we work hard to maintain the necessary requirements to keep the permit in effect. To date, there are still only 4 legal short-term rentals in all of Jefferson County, only 4 in Evergreen. We are the only one within 5 minutes of downtown Evergreen and the Lake House! If in doubt, ask for a copy of the permit! Ask us, and ask others! You'll be surprised how many are illegal! Illegal operators can be shut down at any time. Don't risk your valuable vacation, time, and money!

Sandi purchased this house in 1998

Why Sandi chose Evergreen

We love Colorado and all it offers. Once we looked out the windows and doors, we were hooked! The view was absolutely breathtaking! We still have the same feeling every time we're there! Here you can rest, relax, and breathe deep!

What makes this house unique

Unique and Private! We love sitting on the deck, listening to the wind blow through the trees, watching to see the next animal, the next cloud or summer storm pass. All furishings were purchased new especially for this property, to enhance the mountain living feeling and provide the best experience for your visit. Did we mention that the views are Amazing!!?!!

Colorado Dream

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the cabin and had a great vacation! It is absolutely gorgeous with beautiful, scenic views without even having to get out of bed! We love the unique interior design with ceramic tile throughout and the warm, rustic decor which made it feel so cozy. The modern appliances, BBQ pit and the hot tub on the deck was everything we needed to make us feel at home.

The property is in a great location with lots of privacy and yet it is minutes from the quaint town of Evergreen. We hiked, biked, shopped and ate at so many places that were easily accessible around the Evergreen area. It was a perfect vacation for us nature lovers. We will definitely be back again!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind review! I'm so glad you all enjoyed the cabin! Its a great addition to the house, when the extra space, or distance is wanted! We love the cozy feel of tje cabin as well! We personally installed every piece of slate, taking care to pick the exact color for the space! Very time consuming, but well worth the extra effort! You're so right about there being so many places to see, so much to do, in the area! The restaurants are terrific, and there's always the eating in option, and enjoying the view, and relaxing! Decisions, decisions. ... :) Thanks again for your visit and we hope you will visit us again soon!!!! Sandi

Amazing beauty and nature at your fingertips!

  • 5 of 5

Truly one of most peaceful and beautiful homes we have ever stayed in on vacation. Clean, quite, convenient and all amenities one could ask for in a mountain vacation home. There are so many places to drive to within a hour or less: Denver, Breckenridge, Red Rocks, Morrison to name a few. Or just relax on gorgeous deck and enjoy the quaint town of Evergreen. Finally, Sandi is so kind to work with... timely responses, answered all my questions and made the whole rental experience very easy!! If you are looking for a mountain vacation home..... this is it!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind review of our home! But honestly, we love it so much for all the same reasons! We're so close to so many great things to do, yet so often, we find it hard to leave the peace and solitude of the deck, watching the difference the sun and clouds make on the mountains on the horizon! We also work hard to be sure our guests have everything one can expect in a vacation home: cleanliness, special touches throughout, and all one could need in the kitchen, luxury linens, and more! We hope you'll come back and visit us again soon!! And thanks for taking care of the house!! Sandi

Perfect mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

Colorado Dream Vacation delivered everything we expected and more! Coming from Texas, the weather was perfect! Mid 70's and low mid 50's. The cabin was easy to find and get to even though it was in the mountains. The views were amazing and tranquil location. We were there to celebrate our sisters 40th birthday and had the greatest time. Thought we'd travel further to explore, but never left Evergreen. Everything we wanted to do with hiking, kayaking, excellent food and entertainment were all there. My sisters loved Thr Bistro at Maradale, Little Bear and Evergreen Lake. We even picked up pizza from Beau Jo's and just stayed in one night as it was just too beautiful to leave. Would absolutely stay again!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words! The area has so many wonderful things to see and do! But we often find ourselves just wanting to relax on the deck and take in the view as well! It's just that beautiful! We hope you'll be back again and again! There's bound to be something you missed, or something new, next time you come to visit Colorado Dream Vacation!

Perfect peaceful place to end summer.

  • 5 of 5

We have been home for 5 days and everyday we wish we could be sitting on the deck watching the sunset at this home. The view is breathtaking and we made sure we were home in time to see the sunsets every evening. They are gorgeous. The property is so peaceful and we hardly ever saw another person. We did see a lot of wildlife on the drives up to the house though.

There were only 4 of us (2 children) and we had so much space. The kids loved the bunk beds and we could often hear them upstairs pretending they were in a cave and begging us to watch movies in their cool hideout. The loft space in the bunk room made for the perfect place for big brother to escape his little sister too. We spent the majority of the time outside exploring the property. We took the trail up to Bell Park several times and found new places to see incredible views of Evergreen from various boulders.

The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals at home. The hot tub was great. We loved sitting in it at night and looking out at the stars. We were hoping to see the fox that makes an appearance but we never did. It was really hard for us to say goodbye to the house and Evergreen because we absolutely loved it. You cannot help but feel so relaxed and at peace when you are sitting on that deck!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Amanda for all your thoughtfulness, and your kind praise. It sounds like you all feel the same as we do, about the house and the property. We hate to leave at all! It is a magical, mesmerizing place, with tremendous sunsets, and sunrises as well. We do our best to keep updated, stay stocked with all essentials, and provide extras, like luxury linens, and hand selected furniture and accents throughout. I still have to defer to all the great things to do in the area though, there are so many! Can't wait for y'all to come back and bring your extended family! Thanks again, so very much!! Sandi
