Our cozy house is located in St. Mary's Glacier addition of Idaho Springs. It is 10,000 feet high just 30 minutes from Denver. We have two bedrooms upstairs, one with a queen size bed and the other with double bunk beds. There is a full bath upstairs as well as a washer and dryer. Downstairs we have the living, dining and kitchen with a nice eat in bar and all the comforts of home. Downstairs also includes a half bath. There are two futons in the living room that fold out to queen size beds. A wood burning stove in the living room can heat the entire house but there are also electric wall heaters in every room.
We love to sit out on the deck in the morning and drink our coffee while we wait for the deer to frolic by on their way to the creek that backs up to the property. Hummingbirds fly around and birds and squirrels are plentiful. 4-wheeling trails are abundant in the St. Mary area and many can be accessed from our house. The Indian Hot Springs are just a short drive down to Idaho Springs which also has rafting and plentiful shopping. Of course if you want to take a short 30 minute drive you can be in Central City and Black Hawk where you can try your luck with Black Jack, Craps or Slots!
We are from Grandview, TX., where it is over 100 degrees sometimes for 2 months in the summer. We have taken our vacations in the Rocky Mountains for many years and have always wanted a place there. We are getting ready to retire and we will split our time between Texas and Colorado. We would love to share our place in the mountains with others when we can't be there.
Cool weather, beautiful scenery and lots of 4-wheeling trails where you can go directly from the house without ever loading your 4-wheelers.
Relaxing on the deck with a great view of the mountains and wild life all around you. 4-wheeling trails everywhere around you. Casino's within 30 minutes. Hiking trails abundant.
