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.
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.
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.
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.
My wife and I along with our two small children (1yr & 3yrs) rented this awesome house for a last minute ski vacation in March/2016. Judith was extremely friendly and responsive to our many inquiries. The house was exactly as described and couldn’t have been more perfect for our needs. It was fully stocked with all the required household items any family would need including kitchen, bathroom, Wi-Fi, DirecTV, laundry and bedding. We did have an issue with the bathroom plumbing one morning but a quick text to Judith and she had a maintenance guy make the repairs before we were back later that afternoon.
The neighborhood was peaceful and quiet right at the base of a mountain or really big rocky hill at least, even has deer roaming the streets on several occasions which our kids loved! The town couldn’t have been more perfect. There was a ski rental store in town that served us wonderfully, a library for the kids and for our printing needs and I can’t speak enough praise to the Shell station (yes… “Shell” station) that supplied our breakfast and lunch needs every day. They have a lady in the back that makes a long list of homemade goodies daily. Every morning we would stop in and get several breakfast burritos, coffee (bad ass coffee at that!) pastries and lunch items to feed a family of 4 to bring to the ski resort for later. I can tell you that I was unable to spend more than $16.00 on all of these items when it cost $13.00 at the resort for one coffee and one mango juice. I can’t stress enough how great this shell station is and if you don’t try them then you’re certainly missing out!
I highly recommend this property and our family will definitely be calling Judith for our next Colorado ski trip!
The house worked out perfect for a place to stay while skiing. There was only 2 of us but the home has plenty of room for a family of 4. The house is close to Loveland as well as other mountains in the area. The home is very comfortable and has all the amenities including WIFI and DirectTV. The owner is very responsive and easy to work with.
