OLD WORLD CHARM IN HISTORIC GEORGETOWN

Georgetown Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

We are located in a quaint, functioning, Victorian town just 1 block from the historic downtown with shopping, dining, and museums. The rental comprises the 2nd and 3rd floors of the historic 1875 Mercantile Building. We are able to offer part of the space for a reduced rate if your party is less than 10! See our rates below for these different options. The first floor is home to the Rocky Mountain Miniatures retail store and the Dusty Rose Tea Room, a Victorian style tea room offering over 30 different teas and home made delicacies for lunch or tea.

Our guests are many times surprised by the spaciousness and cleanliness of the facility. We have spent a lot of time and effort to come up with the perfect blend of the modern and the old. The updated kitchen and bathrooms have slanted floors that creak and irregularly shaped doors. The furniture, a mixture of antiques and the new, had to be carefully measured to make it up the steep, narrow, grooved from use, stairs. The high ceilings and large rooms lend themselves to a feeling of being able to spread out.

The layout of the rooms offer a wonderful amount of privacy. Not only is there a table in the dining room (96' long - perfect for games, puzzles, and family gatherings), but another in the kitchen (for those intimate early morning or late night chats.) The bedroom with the king size memory foam bed is located in the northwest corner of the second floor (next to the main bathroom.) The other bedroom on this floor is located in the northeast corner and has a double bed, a day bed, and a single trundle bed. The third bedroom is located on the third floor, has dorners (for that Victorian feel), a queen bed with pillow-top mattress, and an attached bathroom.

We are a smoke free and pet free facility.

Children and families really enjoy staying here. The space if full of nooks and crannies, and we have not over-decorated so there are few things that parents need to worry about getting broken. We offer a high chair and a booster chair for our younger guests, as well as puzzles, games, and a few toys geared for their ages. And of course, with a dollhouse shop on the first floor, there is a dollhouse!

You will wake up to the scent of fresh scones, meat pies, lemon curd, and tea! Visit our website for the Dusty Rose Tea Room.

Come and see for yourselves all this wonderful space has to offer!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you for visiting our web-site and our guest book. My husband and I recently purchased this property and have tried to make it as comfortable as possible for your stay. The previous owners lived in this apartment for 27 years and raised two children. This tells you that the space is comfortable and inviting; large, while at the same time cozy.



Children are always thrilled with the way it "goes on and on." They are also fascinated with the idea of living over a store - "just like Little House on the Prarie." Adults are reminded of "my grandmother's house on the farm." With the full-size updated kitchen, washer and dryer, and two updated bathrooms, you will settle in for a relaxed, old-time holiday with all the modern conveniences.

I have resided in Georgetown since 1999, previously having had the opportunity to travel throughout the Americas and Spain. Chris joined me in 2003 and while managing the Georgetown Mercantile/Rocky Mountain Miniatures store in Georgetown, as well as the Historic St. James Vacation Rental, have been able to continue our travels - to include Asia and the Middle East, as well as Europe and the western hemisphere. We appreciate the tranquility and the small town life in Georgetown. We especially enjoy sharing this with our guests who come to stay with us at the Vacation Rental.

Jeannette Peterson purchased this apartment in 2004

The location lends itself perfectly to the vacationing couple, family, or larger group. The town is a magnet for both the relaxed vacationer, the family get-away, and the avid outdoor person. We wanted to provide a base camp, so to speak, for the group, allowing each to do what they enjoy.

The facility is quiet and centrally located in an historic district of a small town. Nearby are year-round fishing opportunities, skiing, snowboarding, ATVs, river rafting, hiking, horseback riding, shopping, museums, restaurants, and a general small town feel. In the rental we provide books, puzzles, games, and local interest information, as well as the local papers and general information about things to do in the area.

OUT BEST VACATION EVER! WONDERFULLY FULL OF CHARACTER AND AMENITIES!

  • 5 of 5
We had to ask to extend our stay it was so lovely! Full kitchen and laundry onsite for our four kiddos is a beautiful thing!
Clean and comfortable, a home to relax in and enjoy.
Scones from her #1 rated tea room awaited us upon our arrival. She checked on us, but was unobtrusive.
Beds slept well, tv adequate, game/book/toy area a HUGE hit with the kiddos!
We are planning many returns. Georgetown is a perfect base for seeing the area. Price is fantastic for what you get.
Stairs are steep and are only way into rental. No prob for us, just be aware!!!
Everything in Georgetown is in walking distance from here. Even a grocery that will take you back in time.
We did not rent top bedroom, she let us look, however, and it is perfect for taking grandparents or the like! Secluded but not too much. What views from the entire place. Like a dream to wake up with the Rockies towering at you!

HISTORIC ST. JAMES STAY

  • 5 of 5
My stay at the historic St. James was a wonderful experience to say the least. The apartment is immaculately clean and the owners Jeannette and Chris are very caring people. There are countless amenities that are included in the apartment at a fair price. The location of the apartment is great, nestled in the historic area of Georgetown with outstanding views of both the town and the mountains. I was fortunate to stay in the apartment for a decent amount of time and Chris and Jeannette made sure I was comfortable the entire time, delivering mail and baked goods to my doorstep. I believe this rental provides the best value for anyone looking to stay in Georgetown. I was lucky to have discovered it.

A HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
As we were staying in Georgetown for a week, we were looking for something more than a regular hotel. We found it in this lovely, historical apartment. Although the stairs up to the apartment seemed steep at first, we quickly got used to them. It was very nice to have our own kitchen and a comfortable living room to relax in at the end of a long day of exploring. I would highly recommend staying here.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you had a good experience. We enjoyed having you here and "feeling close" to the Cobra Car Club for that week. Thank you so much for coming to stay with us, and please come again if your journeys bring you to Georgetown.

WHAT A GREAT FIND!

  • 5 of 5
This place is a hidden gem! We stayed for one night (our own time limitation), and it was a perfect change from a hotel. There was plenty of room to spread out--lovely dining room, living room, plenty of seating, large assortment of games. Jeanette did a really nice job of making this property a warm, charming and inviting place. The surroundings were quiet, and the only way you knew the apartment was above Jeanette's shop was the lovely aroma of baked goods wafting through the air! And her scones that were left for us for breakfast were delicious! We will definitely choose again when in the area. Thank you for a lovely stay.

LOVELY GET-A-WAY

  • 5 of 5
The listing description for this property was very accurate, the photos were good but could never catch the ambiance the apartment truly has. Such love was put into every detail of decorating and consideration for the comfort of their guests. Jeannette, the owner was so helpful in so many ways not only with the apartment, plus she was such a delightful person, you felt you were in the home of a friend. We can't wait to go back for another girls get-a-way weekend.
