Beautifully restored Victorian cottage located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Cozy and comfortable with many amenities and easy access via I-70 to major ski resorts including Loveland Ski Area, Arapaho Basin, Keystone, Breckenridge, Winter Park, Copper Mountain and Vail. Sunrise Peak Guest Cottage has everything you need for a great ski or summer mountain vacation.
Enjoy views of the Continental Divide from the newly added living space with French doors, vaulted ceiling and gas fireplace. There are two bedrooms with double beds in each and an additional living space with queen sleeper sofa that can be closed off for privacy. The kitchen is fully furnished including dishwasher and all cooking utensils. Full bathroom and laundry make it as comfortable as your own home.
Located in the quaint historic town of Silver Plume - founded in the 1860's during the gold and silver rush - the false-front main street and unpaved roads will take you back in time. Sopp & Truscott Bakery, established in the 1880's, is just a short walk down the street and has famously delicious bread. Georgetown is two miles East on I-70 and has many restaurants, shopping, grocery supplies, and mine and rail tours. Hiking, biking, snowshoeing, back country ski touring, bird watching, wildlife viewing, rock and ice climbing are right outside the door.
Follow the back yard trail up to the Griffin Memorial monument and during the right time of year you may find some wild strawberries and raspberries or see a Big Horn Sheep or Mountain Goat. Or sit on the covered front porch with a cup of tea and enjoy the light on Sunrise Peak as the sun comes up or the hummingbirds as they migrate and play. Wherever your vacation takes you, Sunrise Peak Guest Cottage will become your home away from home.

Eben and I both grew up in Iowa and met at age eight on the ski race team. We both love the mountains and skiing which brought us to Colorado about ten years ago. Eben is the Freeride Team coach at Loveland and he is a Landscaper during warmer months. I coach racing at Loveland and teach yoga. We have two of the greatest dogs, Rufus a Golden and Siesta a Newfoundland-Golden, who may let themselves into the cottage for a treat if the door happens to be left open. They like to meet new people as much as we do!
About four years ago we decided to follow our hearts and move to the mountains that we love so much. Silver Plume, with it's laid back charm and easy access to all, is the perfect place for us. Then, when the run-down cabin next door to our house came up for sale our parent's decided to help us restore it into a vacation home and rental. Gail and Joe - Eben's parents - are home builders, antique-rs and interior decorating masters. Together we gutted, insulated, roofed, straightened, cleaned, added, floored, painted and decorated the house and now we want to share it with others who love the mountains too!
The mountains have so much to offer. The beauty, wildlife, wildness, skiing, back country touring, hiking, snowshoeing and biking are a few of our favorites. We've had the pleasure of seeing many Big Horn Sheep, Mountain Goats, a few brown bear, a couple moose and even one Lynx in our back yard, plus the area is known for the hummingbird migration. The hiking is fantastic, as are the views, and the cottage abuts National Forest. I like to take the dogs for a walk through town to the bakery for cookies. Georgetown is less than five minutes, Summit County is just twenty minutes, and Denver is only an hour away, each offering great restaurants and shopping. World class skiing is a ten minute drive and you will receive a free pass to Loveland Ski Area to use during your stay at Sunrise Peak Guest Cottage.
Ice climbing, mine tours, historic Georgetown Loop Railroad, hot springs, frisbee golf, 4x4 trails.
