About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + full futon ***14 day stay required

All guests must stay 14 days or longer....

The best of both worlds.... city and mountains..what more can one ask for? 'The closest far away place from Denver.......'

Location and recreation are the two amenities that make this property a unique rental experience! The town of Morrison is 20 minutes west of Denver and 45 minutes south of Boulder with scenic Golden just over the hill.

Recreation abounds in the foothills with plenty of hiking, mountain biking, rafting, rock climbing and more as Morrison is surrounded by several mountain parks and open space. In addition to the warm weather sports, alpine skiing, snow mobiling and several winter sports are only an hour up the road in Summit County. Charming Morrison is a tiny town of 500 people and home to famous Red Rocks Park and Ampitheatre and often a day trip for many visiting Denver.

With a new addition, our renovated mountain home was the original 'town jail' of Morrison. This apartment is located right downtown and is in walking distance to various restaurants and shops. With great views and privacy, this rental has

a sprawling patio, chiminea, BBQ and comfortable furniture to enjoy evenings outdoors. Inside, the tastefully decorated apartment has a king bed, queen futon, t.v., wireless internet and cable and small den or office. The fully equipped kitchen has granite counter tops, new appliances and as well as easy access to an outside patio seating for morning coffee.

Whether you're in Denver working or just visiting, historic Morrison has a fantastic location with easy access to other destinations. The town of Morrison offers a Rocky Mountain experience with a western flavor!

The house was lovely and comfortable. Marta and Ron made sure we had everything we might need.

The view was gorgeous, the walking trails nearby were great and the easy walk to the cafes and entertainment was a big plus. We had a wonderful visit.

Old Morrison Jail

  • 5 of 5


We stayed at the "Jail" for two months during December 2014/January 2015 and loved every minute of this home and the fantastic weather.

Ron and Marta were very accommodating during our visit to make everything as pleasant as possible. The home has everything one would need

and plenty of living space to enjoy. We had Christmas here for our sons and families (10 people) and the place comfortably accommodated all.

We loved the small mountain town character and walked to the many local restaurants. We took pleasant daily walks to the post office, along

Bear Creek and climbed the nearby "mini-mountains".

We visited many nearby locations such as: Idaho Springs, Evergreen, Georgetown, Golden, Boulder, Lookout Mountain, Red Rocks Amphitheater, Loveland Ski Resort, the Walker mansion ruins at Mt. Falcon, walked Dinosaur Ridge, Larimer Square, Castle Rock, a Nugget's game and took

the Coor's factory tour along with many other adventures.

Most of our time was spent with family at various family/school activities and enjoying the fabulous weather. A very relaxing way to spend any part of the year in Colorado. Always sunny in Colorado!

Jail House vacation

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We love our home away from home. Your decorating is beautiful. Very peaceful and comfortable. Lilke, the cat, greeted us enthusiastically upon our arrival. She was very loved and well fed while we were here.

The amenities were great. We especially appreciated the well stocked kitchen and bathroom. The fresh flowers were a special touch. The night lights throughout were very helpful for those of us that need to get up in the middle of the night.

One of us enjoyed going to the Broncos game. The other two of us had a great time at the Alabama concert at Red Rocks.

A friend and I stayed at ...

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I stayed at the "old jail" of Morrison for a week in July 2009. It was a wonderful get-away and we had fun hiking and attending a concert at Red Rocks, just minutes away. The house was a perfect home base. We dined al fresco for just about every meal. We watched the peregrine falcons up on the butte and the humming birds diving from the sky. The stars were amazing, including the Milky Way. Lots of great hiking trails close to the house. It was also an easy walk to town which featured several excellent eating and drinking establishments. The home decor is lovely, spacious, bright and airy. We especially loved the over-sized stone shower! And as cooking is a joy of mine, the kitchen was a dream. A great property!

A bonus convenience... is that one can hike up and attend a concert at the amphitheatre on a summer's evening. This apartment is five minutes from numerous taverns, restaurants and shops.
