About The Owner

I'm a mechanical engineer by training and trade, and I've been working in the Aerospace industry for the last 25 yrs. designing satelites and scientific instruments for astronomers, climate scientists, and earth remote sensing.

I love to ski, climb, run, bike, hike or do just about anything else in the mountains and wildernesses of the world whenever I can.

I've been lucky enough to travel the world often for work and adventure, and fortunate enough to have my health and good friends to meet some incredible people and experiences along the way.

I have a 7 yr. old daughter who is the love of my life and is constantly pushing me towards and reminding me of the priorities and balance I'd like to someday hoepfuly attain and have enough time left to maintain in this wonder we know as life.

The Owner purchased this chateau / country house in 2003

Why The Owner chose Nederland

Having experienced the wild and natural beauty of the Eldora valley when I was a college student at CU, I always felt a pull to return to the area and wake up to the sound of the nearby river and the views of the mountain every morning. Often, after either a day hike, bike or ski, I would drive through the Eldora valley looking at the mountain homes and imagining what it would feel like to call one of them 'home'! Then, by chance, a home that I/we had always been quite fond of came on the market just when I was ready to buy. Within a month I was moving in just as the surrounding Aspen trees were at the peak of their Fall Aspen glow and glory! Heaven on earth! Now I run it as a VRBO rental for others to enjoy too.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Perfect silence, gentle wind through the forest, elk slowly meandering through our land, mama fox and her kits playing on the rocks during the early morning hours, black bear on the deck looking for the hummingbird feeder for a sweet snack, the agility, speed and beauty of the hummingbirds flitting furiously during the summer, lulling sound of the river during the spring melt and on through the summer, the night sky kissed with star brilliance everywhere, the rare sighting of our local bobcat calmly and quietly walking along the snow covered ridge, the moose family in the meadow, a chance to observe, appreciate and simply be a part of it all.

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Great place to unwind or from which to launch into the high Rockies. Quiet, refreshing venue with access to some of the best places in the central Colorado Rockies - Indian Peaks, the Continental Divide; with Boulder only 30 minutes away and Nederland ten minutes away - easy access to restaurants and groceries while feeling completely unplugged. Just a great memory waiting to happen

One of the Best Vacations Ever!

  • 4 of 5
Our children accompanied us on celebrating our 50th Anniversary. In fact it was their gift to us---a Colorado vacation. This home was roomy enough for the ten of us. Had we not stayed in Eldora, 10 minutes from Nederland, we probably would not have discovered this area, featuring beautiful hiking trails, friendly residents, and colorful history.

Brainard Lake in close by Roosevelt National Forest provided easy walking trails, fishing, and a chance to see Moose and other wildlife up close. The 4th of July Road, west of Eldora, opened up some of the most beautiful trails imaginable for those in good physical condition. While my husand and I and the young grandchildren visited the Carousel of Happiness in Nederland, our adult children and oldest grandson, hiked to the top of the Continental Divide early one morning. On their short drive to the trail head, they saw a cow and calf (Moose) grazing in the meadow. Once on the mountain, they saw Elk, and a plentitude of wild mountain flowers and breathtaking views of valleys below.

Our family felt like we blended into the culture rather than being mere tourists as this home is tucked away in the remnants of an old mining town, only a few hours from Rocky Mountain National Park, Boulder, and Idaho Springs. Eldora has no commercial venues, so there is little traffic, just cars (which you really can't see or hear) down below travelling to the trail heads. Eldora is very quaint, complete with residential log cabins and residences tucked amongst the trees, near the stream, and along the hillsides. We saw few people, a cute little fox sunning on a rock nearby, humming birds, noisy magpies and adorable chipmunks and squirrels. While we did not encounter any bears, we took precautions as they have been seen on occasion, according to others.

Internet connection was great but cell phone reception not so good. Once in Nederland, however, good phone service was available. The only improvement needed, would be two regular showers, as the tub and hand-held shower head weren't used much. When we visited, there was air in the water line which caused an occasional surprise of being sprayed by cold water when least expecting it. No other suggestions needed.

Thank you for opening up this adorable and comfortable home. Our family had a great vacation stay and would certainly recommend it to others.

great spot for summer off-site

  • 5 of 5
We used this home for departmental off-site meeting. It was perfect to get people off-the-grid. We still had internet connectivity a good land line if we needed to get in touch. Cellular connection is good for texts, not so good for calls -- which was perfect for us. :-)

It was the perfect size for us. Everyone had their own room, 3 slept in bedrooms, one upstairs family room, one downstairs family room, the sun room, and I slept in a tent on the pad out back. (amazing stargazing at night).

The area is really beautiful -- lots of activities around, and you're only 15 min from Nederland if you want a restaurant or market.

The upstairs addition is very nice. The master suite is exquisite, and the family room is a great area for meetings/conversation.

A dream vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time in Northern Light! The place was both gorgeous and kid-friendly. We will always remember sitting on the porch for dinner as the sun sets on the Eldora hillside, hummingbirds buzzing all around us. Thanks for the wonderful vacation and ease of rental logistics! You guys are great!

Inspired views in every direction

  • 5 of 5
I highly recommend Northern Lights for inspired architecture blending old and new, with privacy and striking scenery from every window. This is a lovely historic cabin remodel. The upstairs master suite is a beautiful addition, incredibly spacious and well-designed. We watched deer and foxes walk by the french doors from the master bed. Incredibly comfortable master suite furnishings. The downstairs is charming, imaginatively re-modeled for an inspired blend of Eldora mining history with low-key cabin living and knock-out window views through-out. I really love the barn wood kitchen cabinets. The front deck is where we spent most of our time, taking in the valley, views, aspen, pines, weather, sensory overload. I recommend this combined elegant and cozy getaway to anyone seeking walk-out access to the Indian Peaks wilderness, or to be a local in a lovely mountain community, any season.

Funky, fresh, and comfortable. Everything we wanted and more!

  • 5 of 5
Great house, plenty of space for our family and extended family to spread out. We had 6 adults and 3 kids at various points in the 4-day weekend and the house was a perfect hub for spring skiing at Eldora (perhaps the last viable weekend this year, as the ski season is dropping off quite rapidly), playing outside, and marveling at the charms of Nederland and Boulder. 77 and sunny made for a nice dinner on the deck. Great beds, plenty of seating, fully-equipped kitchen. We cooked each night. Thanks for a great stay! Theresa (Fort Collins) and family.
