Welcome to our Next to Nothing, Close to Everything , Rocky Mountain Home in beautiful Evergreen, Colorado! Colorado Dream Vacation®!

You can relax and take in the amazing view! Take a deep breath, and be glad you're here!! The second you climb the stairs into the main living area and set eyes on the view, you'll be mesmerized by the softly swaying green-tipped branches on the trees that give way to the magnificent, huge granite outcroppings, snow-capped mountains, and bright blue skies as far as you can see. Here you can rest, relax, and breathe deep, knowing all you need in order to enjoy yourself is the key! The only other homes you'll see, are on other mountains, not next door!!! Yet you are 5 minutes to town, restaurants, shopping and all kinds of attractions! Not to mention hiking directly from the front door!

The house, over 2200 square feet, sits on a sprawling 4.25+acre estate, joined by over 1100 acres of park land :

• 3 bedrooms, including a master with a king bed and en-suite bath & flat screen TV, guest room 1 with queen bed, guest room 2 with queen bed plus a sleeping loft with queen bed

• 2 ½ bathrooms

• A fully-equipped kitchen

• Dining room - table for 10, plus 3 bar stools at the breakfast bar

• Living room - open to dining and kitchen

• Loft - a second living space filled with a queen Sleeper Sofa,TV, games, and music options

• Laundry room

• Hot tub

• A private breathtaking view of the sun rising and setting over the surrounding mountains!

The main floor features an open-concept design, with the kitchen, dining, and living room areas all connected so you, your friends and family can gather and enjoy each other's company. Also on the main floor is the master suite, laundry room, powder room, and a huge deck with dining table, overlooking the mountains.

Part of the home's charm is it's feeling of tranquility and privacy – you can't see any other homes from your perch on the deck, except for those on other mountains, far in the distance – but you're still close enough to town (about 3 miles) to conveniently attend to grocery stores, shopping or dining at one of the nearby restaurants. This unique location allows a blend of solitude and opportunities for socialization, making it perfect for you, your family, and friends.

Also available, as an option, is the unique guesthouse: an open-loft bedroom upstairs, with a King Bed, provides additional square footage and an overall airiness, mimicking the breathtaking altitude outside. The living area of the guesthouse offers a queen sleeper sofa. From the walls to the ceiling to the bathroom, everything is custom. The guesthouse is heaven with it's own private hot tub, and you're invited.

The outdoor area surrounding the physical property is every bit as enthralling as house and guesthouse. The house sits on 4+ acres and abuts parkland that totals over 1100 acres of gloriously untamed wilderness. One of our favorite things to do is just sit on the deck and relax. It's easy to forget your cares when you feel the pine-scented wind softly ruffling your hair as the sun lazily drifts through the clear, blue sky. The sights and sounds here are second to none, with critters of all shapes, sizes, and colors coming and going as they please. We have elk, deer, chipmunks, fox, and all kinds of birds. In September 2012 we saw a mama bear and her two cubs crossing the road, coming home downtown from Evergreen. Hot tub aficionados take note: while drinking in your share of the cool mountain air, you may be visited by Fox E. Brown. Our resident friendly fox has kept us company through a few hot tub excursions and beautiful sunsets, grooming himself from his perch on the rocky outcrop that juts out over the tub as we soaked. Don't worry, he never jumps in!

While most people think of mountain destinations like Evergreen as a seasonal experience, there are so many things to do and places to go within a short distance that Colorado Dream Vacation® is truly is a year-round destination. Summer time is a great time for fishing, hiking, bike riding, checking out local festivals and mountain parks. Kids have a great time at Dinosaur Ridge, or Heritage Square in Golden! Heritage Square Amusement Park in Golden is about 25 minutes away and has a 220 ft double zip line, go karts, boats, golf, an arcade, and rides including a ferris wheel and tilt-a-whirl, and all kinds of fun things to do! The zoo in Denver is phenomenal too! Right around Evergreen, there's canoeing, paddle boats, and tons of walking/hiking trails in Evergreen and the Lake. In the fall, don't miss the Aspens and the leaves turning to the fire neon gold! Absolutely stunning! There are so many great roads with outstanding scenery to take short trips, up to a full day trip, returning to Colorado Dream Vacation®, and the warmth of the hot tub, with the view! Winter, of course, is skiing for your whole family, about an hour away in Breckenridge, A Basin, Keystone or Winter Park. Nearby Echo Mountain caters to snow boarders, and there's always old fashion sledding on the property. Evergreen Lake is so close and there's still so much to enjoy there! Ice fishing, ice skating, hockey, along with of course snow men, and snow fish, and whatever you can imagine making! Spring brings snow melt, which is a great time for white water rafting! Spring is beautiful with the spring flowers, and the smell of newness in the air! Horseback riding is great fun virtually all year long, and indoor swimming is at Wulf Recreation Center in Evergreen.

Don't forget how close you'll be to downtown Denver too! Professional hockey, football, and baseball are 30-40 minutes away! Red Rocks Ampitheater is about 20 minutes away with a history of world class musicians taking the stage. Don't miss the view of Denver from here, or the museum that in the lower level-it's amazing!

I could go on and on about all the great things there are to see and do in the area, so close to the house and cabin, yet you'll feel a world away, when you get home from the day's activities, slip into the hot tub, with a beverage of your choice, watching the sun go down!

In June 2012 we received the first short-term rental permit issued in Jefferson County. It was a difficult permit to attain, but we managed it, and we work hard to maintain the necessary requirements to keep the permit in effect. To date, there are still only 4 legal short-term rentals in all of Jefferson County, only 4 in Evergreen. We are the only one within 5 minutes of downtown Evergreen and the Lake House! If in doubt, ask for a copy of the permit! Ask us, and ask others! You'll be surprised how many are illegal! Illegal operators can be shut down at any time. Don't risk your valuable vacation, time, and money!

It is necessary to submit the completed Rental Agreement with the payment to confirm the rental reservation. Your Reservation is not complete without the Rental Agreement accepted and receipt of proper payment. Please note that we DO NOT accept American Express, even though this website does.

Though life eventually called for our relocation away from our lofty oasis, we still take great joy in renting out our beautiful home to guests in search of a respite in the mountains, and away from the daily rigors of city living. We have been renting since 2006, never had a negative review, and have many guests return year after year!

Sandi purchased this house in 1998

Why Sandi chose Front Range Colorado

We love Colorado and all it offers. Once we looked out the windows and doors, we were hooked! The view was absolutely breathtaking! We still have the same feeling every time we're there! Here you can rest, relax, and breathe deep!

What makes this house unique

Unique and Private! You will love sitting on the deck, listening to the wind blow through the trees, watching to see the next animal, the next cloud or summer storm pass. All furnishings were purchased new especially for this property, to enhance the mountain living feeling and provide the best experience for your visit. Did we mention that the views are Amazing!!?!!

Family Time in lovely Mountain Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 with 2 granddaughters, ages 2 & 3, enjoyed our adventure in Evergreen! The mountain views from the home and deck were amazing. We settled into a couple of days in a snow storm, but were cozy, enjoyed the hot tub & meals/games together.

Our host, Sandi, helped us immediately with a couple of questions we had which we very much appreciated.

Another positive for us was the travel time of less than an hour from Denver's Airport.

We would highly recommend this lovely cabin for a family get-away!

Owner's Response: Joan, we are all about making memories with family and friends! Sounds like you took full advantage of the property, hot tub, views, and all the area has to offer, PLUS you had 18 inches of snow, so the kids could sled, make snow angels, and you all have memories for a life time! So happy you enjoyed the house, and we're hoping you'll all come back again! You were wonderful guests, and we appreciate you! Sandi

We had a very good time and house was awesome with all eminities. Would have been more fun if we had some games like Pool, Ping pong for some activities.

Over all we had very good time staying at this property . Sandi was very responsible and was checking with us how we were and needed anything. Liked that the most.

Beautiful home. The property surrounding the home was great.

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful. The home was comfortable, had great views out the windows and off the deck. The house was fully equipped with everything you would need. Really close to in distance to a lot of fun things to do. We loved it. We would stay in this home again.

The only thing we were a little disappointed in was the hot tub never got very hot.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Patty! We love it all too! It was great hearing you had an elk and deer in the yard this morning! I wish I could have know about the hot tub! I would have had a tech there immediately! He was there just a couple days prior to your visit, and all was great. I've already scheduled a visit with him to revisit. We really work hard to have everything just right! I look forward to having you all back again!

The View!

  • 5 of 5

We found the property to be just as pictured / described. Great place to stay if you want to get away from it all (with the convenience of fine dining just minutes away). The view is absolutely stunning. We especially enjoyed a gorgeous sunset the second night of our stay and deer grazing directly behind the home the morning of our departure. Sandi was very responsive and helpful. Would definitely recommend.

Owner's Response: Heather and Matt, it was our pleasure to have your family at the house, and we hope you'll visit us again! We love the view as well, and that we have dining, grocery stores, and shopping so close, yet we're still so secluded! Thanks again, and hope to see you soon!
