Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a fabulous time in Colorado. Your house was wonderful. We have used VRBO many times for rentals all over the place, but yours was the best stocked of any place we have ever been. It was really nice to actually have enough silverware and dishes for 9 people and plenty of pats and pans to choose from. The bottle of wine upon our arrival was really a nice treat after a long day of driving and so very thoughtful. Thank you for everything.

My family had a good time at Russ's home. We had six adults and three children (2 that were 1 year and under). We appreciated the big kitchen and nice dining room plus the family room was very adequate. Beautiful scenery! Nice place to get away. Thanks, Russ

Review #[123345] Review Title

We recently spent 3 nights / 4 days at this property and had a blast! We have 11 in total, 7 adults and 4 children ranging from 2 - 12 and they all had a great time. The setting was perfect for what we were wanting - seclusion, stream, mountains and wildlife. The owner was very accommodating and the property was very comfortable. We were extremely satisfied and highly recommend it to others!

HEAVENLY GATES

  • 5 of 5
We just finished a 1 week stay at Heavenly Gates.Truly a secluded home away form home. It was everything we had hoped for. The description of the property was perfect. The stream running through the property was wonderful, we woke up each morning listening to it with our morning coffee and it started the day of perfectly. Russ was great to work with and answered all our questions before we came and left his cell phone number if we needed him. There is ample shopping in Idaho Springs, and many close attractions to visit. We spend alot of time fishing at the nearby lakes and also enjoyed the Georgetown train and mine ride.I would definately recommend this property. It was well equiped and stocked with the essential including a waher and dryer. We will surely stay here again.
Thanks Russ for the opportunity to spend time in you wonderful retreat.

GREAT WEEKEND GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We spent three days for a girls weekend at Russ's house in June. It was a great location, not too far from home, close to Idaho Springs and still felt secluded. The layout of the main level was spacious. We enjoyed cooking our meals in the kitchen and hanging out having movie time in the comfortable living room area. The deck was the highlight of it all! We loved having our coffee in the morning outside and our afternoon wine and appetizers listening to the creek below. Russ was wonderful to work with. He even had a bottle of wine waiting for us when we got there. A nice touch. Thanks for a great weekend away.

We stayed here with my children, their spouses and children, so we had varying age groups. We all loved the beautiful area, the river in the back, the hiking areas, as well as the easy access to all of the other places we wanted to go and do. The layout of the house was perfect for a family. We appreciated all of the help Russ gave us.

GREAT SPOT

  • 5 of 5
Our extended family(2 couples, 1 single and two kids) stayed here last summer. Location of the home gave you the feeling of being away from it all, but close enough to get back into town quickly. Really loved it! Great hanging out space, big kitchen, big master bedroom and bath, great porches. Idaho Springs is a great, slower pace mountain town. Loved our stay! Our only complaint, it is minor, is that the queen bed in the second bedroom was very uncomfortable.
