Great house in a lovely location!

  • 5 of 5

The house accommodated our large party easily with all the sleeping areas and multiple bathrooms. The beds were very comfortable, kitchen was well stocked and the check out process is simple. We were traveling with children, who particularly enjoyed the play structure! The owner, Jen, was a joy to work with - very communicative and easy to contact. The home is conveniently located down the road from Blackstone River Ranch where we were attending a wedding. A great mountain house in a beautiful location.

Perfect Family Rental

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house as it is close to the venue my nephew chose for his wedding. On entering the house there was an audible gasp from each of us! The house is beautiful, and the large skylight in the living area makes for a gorgeous light filled room. The photos just don't do it justice!

The place is rustic, with lots of artwork and comfortable furniture. The kitchen is large and well stocked for cooking. Probably the biggest surprise was that the refrigerator and kitchen cabinets had many condiments, spices, and other necessities which the owner, Jennifer, said were for our use if we needed them. I have rented many houses on VRBO in the past and have never been so pleasantly surprised to find parsley and soy sauce in the house, it's such a waste to have to buy those things for one dinner!

The bedrooms were large and comfortable, and decorated with many examples of the owners' personal photos and memorabilia. The house really felt like we were in a friend's home. The upstairs bunk room was more than we needed but a nice place for the teens to sleep. They also enjoyed the game room.

We spent a good deal of time outside on the porch, sitting on comfortable chairs and listening to the sounds of Chicago Creek. Just lovely! We also used the grill and the washing machine, which were in good working order.

The owner, Jennifer, was a pleasure to work with. I called her upon our arrival with a couple of questions and she seemed to go out of her way to make us feel at home. If I had to describe this house in a few words it would be "home away from home".

I would highly recommend this property to anyone! The house is a gem, and the nearby mountains are spectacular,We drove up Mt. Evans, elevation 14,000 ft, for an amazing experience. My brother, who shared the house, is seriously considering renting it in the ski season. All in all, we had a wonderful time! Thank you Jennifer!

Wonderful getaway for a family!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home with meadow and playhouse across the creek suited our family vacation perfectly. Close to Idaho Springs, it's also close to recreational activities. Enjoy!

Heads up families with children! This place is a gem. And a great place for adults, as well!

  • 5 of 5

We found this place just 5 minutes out of Idaho Springs as it was a convenient drive from the airport, had a mountain stream right outside the door, and was near a variety of good hiking. Once we arrived, we realized how much more it had in store for us. I found myself wishing that we had more grandchildren to enjoy it. A wonderful slate tile patio looks out to the hand built log bridge leading to a playground complete with sand box and toys, a treehouse, and a child-size zip line (which could hold us oldies, too!). Inside, our 7 year old granddaughter had so much fun exploring and discovering the toy room, bunk room upstairs on one side of the house and the game/tv room up another stairway.Plus she got the 'bird decor' bedroom all to herself! Her parents had a side room nursery where their 10 mos baby girl could get a good sleep all to herself. We managed to use all of the rooms at one time or another. This home exudes the love of the family who created it, well decorated, and willing to share it with others. We thank the Burkgren family!

Our stay was to go to my son's wedding in Evergreen which was about 20 minutes away. Had my other son and family, grandson family and great grandchildren. Great you room and outside tree house and swing set with sand pile. Beds were comfortable, everything we needed was there. Great place!

It was better than we imagined it would be, and perfect for our family.

  • 5 of 5

We booked this hoping it would work out for our children and grandchildren for a fun getaway time with everybody. It far exceeded our expectations and would highly recommend it. Our grandchildren ranged in age from 11 years down to 12 months. Every one of them had so much fun, and there was so much that they were able to do. Overall, it was very relaxing for both the parents and grandparents!
