Jim Gidley purchased this house in 2010

Why Jim Gidley chose Georgetown

We started coming to Colorado when our daughter began coaching at the Air Force Academy in 1998 and Dave was a ski instructor at Keystone. We started the Grandkids skiing and really liked the atmosphere at Loveland. Also like Arapaho Basin and Winter Park but did not like the drive back to Colorado Springs. In 2010 bought the property and reworked the front half for overnight and short term use. Silver Plume is a laid-back, interesting town with National Historic site designation

What makes this house unique

Being in Silver Plume is like returning to post Cival War times. The streets are unpaved, the old store fronts are unique and adjacent Georgetown and Idaho Springs have lots of activities and amenities. Mountain hiking and biking is readily available and skiing runs from October to April.

Skiing Trip to Loveland

  • 4 of 5

The house is just 12 minutes away from the ski area and the owner's son has skiing and snowboard equipment for rent.

The house is located in the mining town of Silver Plume, which has minimal development and is very quiet. On the last day there, I took a walk on a trail to one of the silver mines. I happenned to see 6-7 Bighorn sheep about 50-100 feet away. As long as I kept my distance, they continued grazing, while keeping an eye on me. From this same vantage point, the town of Silver Plume is spreadout below. A great place to visit if you are willing to make your own entertainment.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. The area is really unique as you discovered while viewing big horn sheep. I hope you enjoyed your Colorado trip and will return. Thanks again and best wishes.

Guys ski trip

  • 4 of 5

The house worked out perfect for a guys only ski trip. Nice home base to relax after a long day on the slopes. The caretaker, David, is really helpful and went out of his way to make sure we had the right ski equipment. If you are in need of rentals I recommend renting from the home owner as it's very convenient.

The rental was very close to the ski slopes. You must go to Georgetown (just a few minutes away for groceries, restaurants, gas, etc.) Host was very helpful in getting us ski gear. Only negative was a lot of clutter/"stuff" inside and outside of the house….reminded me of Sanford and Son.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We have been doing maintenance (new roof, exterior painting, shelves for the rear unit). Unfortunately some material was not removed prior to your arrival. I have taken action to correct this. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.

Great place for relaxing after skiing

  • 4 of 5

We had 4 guys staying in the house for a 4 day ski trip and we enjoyed ourselves immensely! The house was great and we easily found everything we needed (minus an oven). The only reason I'm giving 4 stars is because we weren't fully aware that the only oven was a countertop model. That being said, the place is great for people looking to do the Colorado outdoors on a budget.

Our Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed here for our summer trip to Colorado for the last two years in a row, and we look forward to going back next summer. It is very conveniently located next to the historic Georgetown Loop Railroad, in Silver Plume. We enjoy relaxing and having our morning coffee on the front porch looking up at the mountains. David makes sure we have everything we need and always fills us in on all the local happenings. Our favorite hiking place, Guanella Pass, is an easy and beautiful drive from this quaint cottage, and coming “home” always feels so nice. It is stocked with games and movies, which is always fun after a long day in the mountains. We love all of the books that are available for our use; we have learned much about the history of Silver Plume and Georgetown. David also has plenty of stuff to rent if you are into skiing, biking, kayaking, etc. Some of our favorite places in nearby Georgetown include Mountain Buzz Cafe & Pizzaria, Lucha Cantina, and Mad Mike’s Outdoor Gear and Espresso Bar.

We miss our mountains and can’t wait to come back!

Perfect place for active people

  • 5 of 5

This is an unique cabin located in a very quiet place; perfect for everybody who loves outside activities. Hiking trails start just "from a cabin". Dogs are allowed on trails. Close to this town, other historical places are good to see. Although in the town, there are not too many attractions, its geographical location makes itself very attractive. Owner is pet friendly and cares about. his guests. I would recommend this cabin for parents with teenagers, pet owners and adventure seekers.
