Overview

Georgetown House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

A perfect house for family vacations, ski vacations, get-togethers, girls or guys weekends--any gathering to have fun and relax in the beautiful historic town of Georgetown. The house is in the perfect location. It is very private-you feel like you're the only house around. But it is close to everything that is great about Georgetown. You can walk to the historic part of town, along the creek, or to the Georgetown Loop Railroad.

The house has every ammenity you need to feel at home. There are four bedrooms, one of them a bunk room that is perfect for kids, but works for adults too--it sleeps 6! If you have men and boys in your group, they will love the suprise in the bunk room's bathroom! The other three bedrooms have either a king or queen bed and are comfortable and full of character. There is also a full size pull-out sofa in the living room.

Want to TRULY relax but still enjoy great food? You can have groceries, fresh baked goods, or even fully prepared meals, waiting for you upon request. Just coordinate in advance, and for a very reasonable price, I will fill your refrigerator and pantry with everything on your list.

About Jen Knies

My family has a very special place in our hearts for this house. We love to ski and snowshoe here in the winter and hike and bike in the summer. Georgetown makes us feel like we have stepped into a much simpler world. Time moves slower and families spend more time just enjoying time together.

I am a retired Army officer. I spent 2010 in Afghanistan and when I got home, one of the first places I wanted to go was to this house. It is a very special place, and I hope you and your family and friends will enjoy it as much as we do.

Jen Knies purchased this house in 2007

Why Jen Knies chose Georgetown

I grew up coming to Georgetown. My family friends owned a house here, and still do. I have decades of fond memories of this wonderful town.

What makes this house unique

We love being so close to the creek, the Loop railroad, amazing skiing, and the beautiful, historic town of Georgetown and it's wonderful people. You really just have to stay here to see what I mean!

A Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had the pleasure of staying in Georgetown this past weekend with friends and family. This historic home boast great views and plenty of room to sleep/relax. I loved the quick scenic walks into town and up to the amazing train loop station. I highly recommend a stay here!

Even better than advertised! We had an extended-family weekend getaway. We hiked, had so much to do in town and the Historic Loop Railway a short walk from the house. However, we all wanted to hang around and relax in the house, porch & yard every moment we could. Kids loved their big bunk room. Adults loved the comfy rooms and great beds. The amenities were like home (and we love our homes:), the updated kitchen allowed several of us to cook together. The LR seating the whole family, lounging on the great sectional. Dining room is lovely and functional. We are already planning our next getaway to this house on the hill. LOVE the place and the owners were a pleasure to communicate with. Oh yes, after the short walk into town we felt safe and confident to send the preteeens and teens back on their own to the cupcake bakery (named Cake) which rivals the trendy big city cupcake places we've been to. And many other shops and very nice library. We even got great & needed hats and gloves at 'Nirvana' run by a Nepali family. Great town. Prettiest Victorian home I've been in.

Georgetown is such an amazing place. It gives you a chance to glimpse into the past while feeling so grounded in the here and now. I Feel so fortunate to have been able to stay in this special house. Lots of love and good vibes there. And it's so pretty. You can tell the owners put a lot of effort into making this place as special as it is. Hope to go back every year!

Very nice homie place to stay

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here for several nights. Loved the location. Walked to Georgetown and had a yummy dinner. Went to Winter park and had a blast on their alpine slide. The house was clean, warm and had a romantic charm to it. Sat on the large porch relaxed, inhaled the fresh mountain air and just enjoyed being alive. You will not be disappointed staying here.

Confused by great ratings

  • 2 of 5
I have to agree with the lodger from July of 2011. I understand that this is a very old house but that doesn’t excuse the fact that the fireplace had not been cleaned out, the place was dusty, no washcloths in the upstairs bathrooms and when we did find the other towels and washcloths they were stained and dingy. The pillows must be at least 10 years old because they are so flat that even two was not enough. I know a lot of the reviewers were happy that there was food available, but we found it difficult to fit in the food that we brought. Our first morning we woke to overturned trash cans and we had to clean up the previous tenant’s trash. Also if you are considering this property and you really do have fourteen people in your party I would recommend that you ask where guest 13 and 14 will sleep. From my count this house sleeps up to 12 people. I guess it reminded me of a relative’s cabin that they are kindly letting you use for free so you don’t expect much and you are grateful for the kindness.
On the bright side our party of 10 fit quite comfortably in this house and we were able to all have a bed to sleep in. The beds were okay and the kitchen was well equipped. The three bathrooms were also nice for 10 women. We had a great time together in spite of the problems but will be looking for a different place to stay next year.
This is my first negative experience with a VRBO rental. In the past if something small was wrong I write a positive review and then send a personal email to the owner expressing my concern. This time there was too much negative and felt I should share with future lodgers.

Owner's Response: Catherine,

Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry the house wasn't up to your standard. Based upon your comments, we have purchased all new bedding-sheets, pillows and duvets. We also replaced all of the towels in the house--and wash cloths, of course. The trash cans were being knocked over by a bear, so we have purchased a "bear proof" garbage bin. Hopefully that will prevent any future messes caused by our friendly neighborhood bear.
Feedback like yours is important, as painful as it may be, so thank you again.
