Idaho Springs Gem
We stayed a week with my daughter, her husband and their daughter 4 years old. The little one never wanted to leave the cabin! This was a perfect location for coming and going for things like kayaking in Georgetown, water rafting and zip lining down the road, Golden State Canyon Park and of course the trip up to Mt Evans. The property is a perfect place for adults and kids. The property is fenced so there was never a worry with the little one. To have the creek run right through the property was amazing. We dropped many "pine cone boats" in the creek to watch them go! Inside the house is beautiful and comfortable. Obviously someones home, so thanks for sharing the beautiful place. It is just as pictured. I did wish it was a bit more secluded from the road but a fair trade off to be close to everything!
Long Weekend Ib Idaho Springs
Property was awesome! Came here for a Wedding at Blackstone Rivers Ranch. Being only 2 miles away from the venue was helpful. Phyllis was very easy to deal with in the little bit we had to communicate as there were no issues with the unit. Rooms were all nice sized and the living, kitchen and dining areas well all large and comfy. Need to come back here with all the Grandkids so we can fill up the bunk room. Great yard with playground and play house too. I would definitely recommend staying here!!!
We had a great time in Idaho Springs. House is conveniently located near town & grocery store yet still has very private feel. Beautiful scenery & great house with enough room
Great Family Vacation to Colorado
We stayed in this home the last week of June 2019. The commute from DIA was easy and the home is very convenient to I-70. Check in and check out could not have been easier and Phyllis was very good at communicating throughout the process. Our family of ten was more than comfortable in this house and the bedroom with a nursery off of it and separate playroom was a huge hit with our 1 year old grandson. The kitchen was well equipped for our eating most dinners in and the dining room with a large table provided us with not only a great place to share meals, but also an awesome place to play games and enjoy the evenings. The patio, playground, and creek were all added bonuses to our spending time outside with the kids. The location was central to our white water excursion, Red Rocks, Mt Evans, St. Mary's Glacier, disc golf, hiking and even a day trip in to Denver to visit their beautiful Botanical Garden.
I would recommend this house, especially to those with families and would definitely stay here again if we find ourselves back in the area.
Good fit for our family of 10!
Our 3 generation family of 10 found this rental very well suited for our needs. The bunk room was great for the 4 grandchildren. They also loved the “Fort” treehouse and the zip line. We all enjoyed the ambiance of the rushing water of Chicago Creek. The house had beautiful and unique decor and was well furnished with supplies, although we found the kitchen to be a little dark...better lighting needed. The only other shortage we found was the bathroom linens. Could have used more. Overall, a comfortable, clean, mountain home that was convenient to the many area activities.
Weekend for a wedding
My family really enjoyed this home! There was enough room for all of us! We loved the how easy check in was! The home was comfortable and a wonderful place to come home to each night! My niece, nephew and daughters all loved the play place and the zip line!!!!
