THE FIR HOUSE - VACATION & HOLIDAY RENTAL HOME IN EVERGREEN CO

Evergreen House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-5)

The Fir House is a fully furnished home-away-from-home and is available for holiday, vacation, honeymoon or anniversary, monthly, and corporate rental. With all the charm of a 1930 bungalow, the Fir House is nestled on a mountainside at 7500 ft. in elevation in a quiet residential area about 10 minutes north of historical downtown Evergreen. The house is set on 1/3 acre and is surrounded by a forest of Fir and Ponderosa pine. The house offers a perfect blend of mountain living with the convenience of city amenities nearby.

The Fir House is approximately 1200 sq. ft. with 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, and sleeps 3-5 people. The Fir House features a master bedroom adjacent to the living area. French doors open between to offer a pleasant view from and into the bedroom. Dining and living area are joined to create a cozy atmosphere. The house is fully furnished and comes with cable tv and internet.

A large picture window opens to the forested mountainside and we rarely pass a day without a visit from deer, elk, or red fox. A wrap-around deck provides a view over the pine covered valley to the north. The basement is walk-out and the glass doors have afforded us many a close-up view of the deer that frequent the graveled area under the deck. There is a large private patio at the back of the house equipped with a gas barbeque and outdoor table and chairs. Outdoor lights light the area for safety and comfort.

The rock fireplace appears to be original and the built-in convection system works beautifully to throw heat into the interior of the house. Work at the desk or enjoy the fireplace while relaxing with a good book or eating in the dining area. The second bedroom is located in the basement and a trundle bed is located in the downstairs family room. A laundry room with washer and dryer is located downstairs. The driveway and extra parking area can accommodate an RV or boat.

Local amenities are within 10 minutes and include grocery stores, superstores and convenience stores and a full range of fast food to elegant dining. The local King Soopers will deliver groceries to your door for a $10 delivery charge. And the SuperWalmart is just up the road for affordable food and household items. There is also a Health Food store in the King Soopers shopping center.

The Regional Transportation District services the residential area with a call-n-Ride shuttle bus. For $2, the call-n-Ride shuttle bus is available to take you to the local grocery store, a doctor appointment, and other locations in the Evergreen area, including the Bus stops that connect to the greater Denver area to the east - for work or for play, and the ski resorts and gambling towns to the west. Downtown Denver is a 40 minute drive and Denver International Airport (DIA) is a one hour drive.

Use the Fir House as a home-base to see the region or use it as a private retreat where you can fill your day with the peace and quiet of the mountains, hike or bike on the numerous Open Space paths, ski or fish nearby, and visit the wonderfully quaint historic towns in the area. Be sure to visit the museums in Denver and the LoDo district for a taste of the local beers, wines and foods. Several guidebooks to the local sights, mountain parks, scenic drives, hiking trails, resorts, events, festivals, entertainment are available for your use at the Fir House. Be sure to check online and at the Evergreen Area Chamber of Commerce too for more info about local services, activities, and events.

The mountain setting and our Colorado weather make a 4 Wheel Drive Vehicle highly advisable from October to April.

Guestbook comments from the owner
"Beautiful house, has everything a family needs to have a great private vacation and watch the wildlife. Nearby restaurants and stores and watch and feed the ducks at the lake a few minutes away. We had a great time getting away from city life for a while!"

Clean, Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed a few months at the Fir House and enjoyed every moment. It was super clean, very comfortable and its close to downtown Evergreen and Elk Meadow. We have two large dogs and a cat and Matt welcomed ALL of us.
We loved Evergreen so much that we recently moved here. I would recommend the Fir House to others...who knows you might even stay like we did!

Our Fir House Winter Stay

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at The Fir House from December to April this year with our two dogs. The house was just like the photos online and in great condition. Everything was so clean and well maintained. We even had a fenced in dog yard and doggie door which was extremely convenient. The kitchen was perfect and had all the necessities needed for five months. We had friends visit throughout the winter and there was plenty of room for everyone. The location of The Fir House was awesome. It's right across from Elk Meadows Open Space.We used the trail system several times a week for running and mountain biking. The 70 is only a 6-7 minute drive, ski resorts are 1-1 1/2 hours away and the lovely town of Evergreen is a short 2 mile drive. Overall I would recommend The Fir House to anyone . The owners couldn't have been nicer and very responsive to anything we needed. We loved Evergreen so much that we bought a home there and will be moving this winter. Check it out, it's the perfect rental vacation home!

Very nice home in quiet neighborhood

  • 4 of 5
The first time I walked into the Fir House I knew that I had made the right decision. The home has been tastefully and completely remodeled. Every room was comfortable and easy to live in. The back patio and front deck are great for relaxing and enjoying the wildlife. The owners were very helpful and answered al of my questions. I would recommend this home to others.

Great location with decent house

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at the Fir house for 1 month and loved being so closed to Elk Meadow, which is a beautiful park within a 10 minute walk. We often saw wild life in our yard. Matt was quite helpful with arranging the reservation. The house is on a steep hillside so the yard is not a place to hang out. The front deck is nice with a view of the valley but looks out over the road as well. The inside of the house was as described; although, we did not realize how small it would feel. The main bed room is right off of the living space. Approximately 1/3 of the square footage is in the basement, which we never really used. The downstairs single bed was fine for kids but not comfortable enough for an adult. The house was well equipped in terms of supplies for a stay.

Great Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We stayed the entire month of July in the Fir House and enjoyed every day. The house is nicely decorated, very clean, and well equipped. Air conditioning is available which was very helpful in a hot summer. The location is very convenient for all parts of Evergreen. You will see lots of wildlife! We would definitely come back to this delightful property.
