About Julia Julia

Our family loves Colorado Rocky mountains and all activities they can offer: skiing, snowboarding, biking, taking trails, fishing, white water rafting. My husband and our twins were born and raised in Colorado. We love Colorado history (especially Colorado Gold Rush period), small historic mining towns, beautiful nature and abundant watchable wildlife.

Julia Julia purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Julia Julia chose Idaho Springs

We could not imagine a better location: quiet street, a walking distance to historic district, museums, shops, restaurants. Great view of the mountains, close to Clear Creek, Hot Mineral Springs. It it very close to everything - to downtown of Denver, Mountains, Skiing, White Water Rafting, Museum, Antique Shopping, Historic Mines and Mine Tours, Casinos, you name it!

Enjoy here in historic mining town of Idaho Springs everything Colorado has to offer: Gold Rush history, old mining towns, railroad history, gorgeous nature, scenic drives such as Mt Evans Scenic Byway or 'Oh, My God' Road to historic Central City, casinos, opera, tons of hiking and biking trails, whitewater rafting right here on Clear Creek, hot mineral springs pool and thermos, great skiing at Loveland and Eldora 20-35 minutes away. If you love geology and mining history you can take a guided tour at numerous historic mines in the area or visit Red Rock State Park and Amphitheater to admire unique red rock formations.

What makes this cabin unique

Unique benefits include Colorado School of Mines facility near by and Edgar mine. You can take a guided tour with a real hard rock miner to learn about mines, mining and minerals of the area. It has to be pre-arranged.

The cabin is so close to all restaurants, museums, antique shops, rec center, library, supermarket, post office. You do not really need a car if you do not mind yo walk or bike...

We Enjoyed Our Stay in Your Cabin Very Much!

  • 5 of 5
Have been wanting to get in touch with you to let you know that we enjoyed our stay in your cabin very much. Our stay was challenged a bit by the snowstorm, but since our granddaughters were off from school for 2 days, the storm gave us more time to spend with them. Your toys & videos were a big hit with them. We were impressed with the tender loving care that is so obvious in your cabin, & the bathroom decor made us feel right at home since we spend most of our time at the beach.

The snow, then thaw, made keeping the carpet by the door clean a challenge. The bench on the porch is a great place to sit & remove boots in that situation. We were very comfortable in your cabin. It was roomy & clean, & yet cozy too. The bedding & towels were also very comfy & it was obvious they were well laundered. Our granddaughters were thrilled with the toys, the teddy bears, & the selection of videos that they hadn't seen before. After playing in the snow, we would go back to the cabin for hot chocolate & they looked forward to it so much. We had the whole family in for dinner one night & my husband, the chef in the family, was very happy with how complete the kitchen was. The bathroom was roomy & we definitely loved having a tub & shower. So many of the places we've rented in the area have only had a stall shower. We didn't get to use the deck due to the snow, but I can see how inviting it would be on a sunny, spring day. I can still see myself enjoying the sunshine & nature, & maybe a meal out there if the weather permitted. The instructions were complete which was also nice. We've had issues in past stays in other homes with no one telling us what to do with trash, heat, etc. The location of this cabin can't be beat! We would definitely consider renting the cabin again, in fact, we would look forward to it!
You promised me that we would have an enjoyable stay & you delivered. Thank you so much...

We've enjoyed our stay at the cabin and especially appreciate how clean everything is. Thank you for letting us stay. The cabin was very cozy. Saw lots of wildlife( 14 longhorn sheep + more). Enjoyed beautiful Colorado scenery and White Water Rafting on Clear Creek - exciting whitewater adventure.
Everything was great!

We had a great time. We loved Beaujo's pizza place and the coffee shop across the street from Beaujo's. We went to Pike's Peak, Echo Lake, Winter Park and Silver Dollar Lake off of the Guanella Pass in Georgetown. We also went to the Argo Gold Mine. We ate at the Sushi Den in Denver which was fantastic. We went fishing on the Colorado River which our friend caught a few brown trout. We tried panning for gold in Chicago Creek and searching with a metal detector in nearby hills but had no luck in the mining for Gold Expedition. We saw elk, deer and a porcupine. We saw so much and your place was a central location for us to access these things.
The house was very cozy and convenient inside. The scenery is awesome from the porch in the morning. Especially with the sun shining on the porch to help keep you warm. I really enjoyed the mornings there. Very relaxing and beautiful. Your neighbor to the south was kind enough to loan us some jumper cables for our friend's truck.

I am a very picky person for cleanliness due to my upbringing. I was pleased at the cleanliness of the floors. Bed sheets and comforter were just to my taste and very snuggly.

My husband and I frequently rent vacation homes or condos. This was our first time using vrbo. We were very happy with our stay. I really appreciate how timely you handled our rental agreement and were able to get us in there at the last minute. You are very friendly and were very helpful. I really liked that you provided linens, soaps, garbage bags, some paper products, spices and other useful items that gave it a special touch. I loved the chocolates, Loved looking out the bathroom window while showering. The decor is very pleasant.


Thank you so much,
Ronda

The stay at your place was great - I believe my husband left a comment on the table when we left. We travelled with our married daughter and husband who lived in Boulder. It was nice to be close to the city, yet close to the activities we wanted to enjoy for the time we were there. We found Idaho Springs an enjoyable town with great food and close to a wide variety of activities. We were able to use your place as a jumping off point to climb mountains and enjoy other touristy activities. The house was a comfortable place to stay, clean and with good amenities. We're keeping it on our list as a possibility for another trip to the area. Thanks for everything!
