The Casita is not just any vacation rental. It has lots of custom touches and artistry. The house was initially designed to be a vacation rental and it has a personality unlike any other. It is certainly a one of a kind home! The Casita is a brand new construction that we have been building since 2012. The house is primarily made up of reclaimed materials with the exception of some of the framing lumber. All of the windows, doors, flooring, cabinets, counters, granite, flagstone, outdoor kitchen, and even all of the appliances came from other resources.
After building our bed and breakfast, Casa Colorado over the last ten years and using reclaimed materials, we had the idea to build another house that could be a vacation rental and would act as an example of a reclaimed design and build project, start to finish. After discovering Resource in Boulder and a few other used building suppliers, I was able to stockpile all of the house parts before we started building. I designed this house by using the pieces that I found, but also prioritizing the artistic integrity, functionality, and upscale class of the home.
The house sleeps up to 10 people, but is probably the most comfortable with 6-8. There is a king in the master bedroom, as well as a queen futon, there are two single beds in the loft, and a queen in the downstairs bedroom. There are also 2 blow up mattresses and two pack n’ plays for kids.
The Casita Kitchen is built with an open floor plan and features a stained torquoise concrete slab with in floor radiant heat, a beautiful Viking range with a center griddle and a stainless dishwasher and refrigerator. There is also a professional grade blender, coffee maker, French press, 4 slice stainless toaster, and a soda stream for making your own bubbly water. There are professional grade copper pots and pans, as well as stainless for your cooking pleasure. There is a crockpot and a juicer, as well. The kitchen is fully stocked with a full line of savory herbs and spices and a few varieties of sea salts and also fresh organic herbs growing for your convenience.
The lighting in the Casita is also really great. There are remote controlled full spectrum leds, moroccon sconces up the stairwell, deep blue pendants over the island, and rail and cable lighting throughout the house. Every light in the house has a dimmer. The ability to create a really cool feeling in this house is one of its signature characteristics!
The living room is very quaint and has an 8 ft. cozy designer couch, as well as two comfy chairs. There is a pellet stove that does a great job of heating the space and provides a really warm atmosphere during the winter months. There is also in floor radiant heat in the kitchen and the two bathrooms and radiant wall mount heat in the rest of the house.
There are flatscreen tvs with direct tv in each bedroom and a 55 inch in the living room. There is a Harmon Kardon surround sound stereo system in the living room and speakers throughout the entire house for your listening pleasure. The stereo also has a tablet that you can stream spotify or Pandora or use it to get online. There is also wifi throughout the house.
Design: There are many amazing artistic features to this house. We used custom, handmade tile in the downstairs shower that almost feels ocean like, and ties together the torquoise theme throughout the house. There is a deep blue vessel sink that compliments the tile and sits upon a late 1800's sink basin. There are glass tiles, raku tiles, custom textures, reclaimed 1800’s beams and an ornate Balian architectural piece in the kitchen that truly brings an old world feel to the kitchen. The house feels open and airy and has high, vaulted ceilings.
Hot tub: The hot tub is located right out the back door for easy access and is always set to 104-106 for your comfort.
Skiiing/ Sledding: The house is located about 15 minutes from Eldora Mountain Resort. Eldora offers plenty of downhill terrain as well as a great Nordic Center with miles of Nordic trails to choose from. Sledding can happen right from the house! The location is perfect for sledding right out the front door! The hill is just right out of the front door. Sleds and snow shoes are provided. The house also backs up to National forest, so it feels very private and really there are 100’s of acres of forest right behind the house. We continue to work on the trail system so that hiking and cross country skiing can happen right from the house.
Hiking: During the summer months there are amazing hikes all within a 15-minute drive. We supply the house with trail maps for your convenience.
Closest town: The nearest town is the town of Nederland. It is located just about 7 miles away from the Casita and has an assortment of restaurants, cafes, bike shops, grocery store, co-op, liquor stores and is a just a really charming, little, mountain town.
Blackhawk is 12 miles from the house, as well. Technically, we are a Blackhawk address, but it’s actually closer to Nederland than it is to Blackhawk.
The Casita is also just a minute walk to Casa Colorado, which is our Bed and Breakfast. The Casa offers a high -end suite to one party at a time. So, if you have friends that want to come up for a night or two the Casa suite is a great option. There is also no minimum stay requirement at the Casa, so it’s a great way to have a few friends up for even just one night without needing to crowd the Casita.
We really hope to see you soon here at the casita!!

While working on the road as a touring musician, Scott purchased Casa Colorado and began the arduous task of building his greatest creation, piece by piece. A few years later the vision came together when Morgan moved in and they decided to share their home, primarily as a B&B, and later as an entire house rental. By choosing to stay closer to home, they are able to spend more time shaping their vision for a more sustainable lifestyle. Both passionate about high altitude gardening, today they are a little bit farmer, artists, chefs, and professionals that wear many hats to complete the jobs on what they joke has become a mini mountain farm.
scott Messersmith purchased this house in 2002
