Very cozy and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Great place, very nice and convenient close to loveland. Had all amenities we needed and pantry had all necessary to cook our meals. We could have used a little more firewood but one night by fire was nice. Would definitely recommend.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay.! The proximity of Loveland is certainly convenient. Firewood is provided by guests as they use it and is available at local grocery store and gas stations.

Staying in this comfy bungalow was delightful, from the wonderful cable programs on the TV to the WIFI reception, from the beautiful deer in the front yard to the enchantment of being in Georgetown, CO. The owner Judith Spater was friendly and helpful. It was set up for good TV watching and book reading spots, and her book selection was fine. I hope to stay there again.

Cozy home in the Colorado mountains

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a few days at this lovely bungalow in Georgetown. The bungalow is very comfortable and extremely well equipped. I was VERY impressed with the kitchen and how well it was stocked. I like to cook and was visiting my adult son who works as a ski instructor at the nearby Loveland ski school. He was quite happy to find that I was able to make all his favorite dinners while we were together.

The town of Georgetown is quaint and includes some nice shops. We also enjoyed dinner at Coopers on the Creek. This location is very convenient to visit all of the ski areas on the eastern side of the Eisenhower Tunnel. I no longer ski, but I really enjoyed walking around the lake and being able to see the herd of big horn sheep that live in the cliffs across from the eastern end of the lake.

I will definitely stay here again when visiting my son.

Adorable, warm & cozy!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home a few days after Christmas and for the New Year. It was perfect for our family of 4. Beds were very comfortable. I was concerned before we arrived, if a home of that age would be hard to keep warm being the coldest part of winter, but it was very warm and cozy the whole time, even though we never did use the fireplace. We also loved the cute little town itself. We ate at several of the local eateries. They were all good and everyone was very friendly and it was nice to have several varieties of food all within minutes from the house. We spent our days sking at Loveland, which we also really enjoyed. We ordered their special 4 day lift pass online, which made it so much more affordable than the bigger ski areas. We all had a great time and would love to go back again. Judith was very nice and great to work with. If your thinking about renting this home for your family, don't hesitate, you'll love it.

Great Experience in Georgetown, CO

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on Xmas eve and were very happy with the property. The home is well set up for a family of four with two single beds upstairs and a queen on the main floor. Cozy, clean home in very good condition and close to town. Easy walk to town even on a cold and windy night, like 5-8 minutes. Georgetown has a cute main street with various shops and restaurants. Kind of a sleepy town, which was just fine or us. After a long day of skiing we just needed a nice quiet place to relax and this home was perfect. Kitchen is well stocked with everything you would need. Washer and dryer on site, although we only used the dryer for wet ski clothes during our stay. Did not use the wood burning fireplace. Plenty of towels and everything you would need in terms of toiletries for the bathroom. House is about an hour from Denver airport so easily accessible. Tip, look at renting a car somewhere other than the airport. We took an Uber to an Aurora, CO Enterprise location and saved about $700 on a 5 day rental. They really jack up the prices during peak times at the airport.

We went skiing at Loveland Ski Resort for 3 days which is about a 25-30 minute drive from the house. Loveland is awesome and easily the most affordable place to ski I have ever been. I have been to about 12 different ski resorts and the skiing at Loveland is as good as any of them. When you factor in the price and short/ non-existent lift lines there is really no comparison. Loveland is for skiers only, no lodging on site and really not much else to do at the mountain, which was fine for us. We bought 3 of the 4 pack lift tickets which brings your daily lift ticket price down to about $35 each. If someone knows of a better, or even comparable deal, I would love to know about it. You do have to buy the 4 packs by late November, so plan ahead. You can use them any time without restrictions.

My only complaint, and I hate to even bring it up, is the tree (palm tree of some sort???) growing in the corner of the kitchen. It is huge and is taking over a good portion of the area we used to take off our gear after skiing. Without the tree, a nice eat in dining area would be available. I hate to bring it up because it probably has been in the owner's family for a long time and it would actually be pretty cool in a larger space.

Overall we had a great time in CO and this house was a perfect fit for us. The owner was easy to work with and I would definitely stay here again.
