Mount Vernon House Rental Photos and Description

Golden, Colorado

A quintessential Colorado getaway awaits you at this exceptional Golden vacation rental home, nestled on 3.5 acres in the foothills of Denver, about 20 minutes from downtown. With easy access to year-round outdoor activities and upscale amenities galore, this contemporary farmhouse ensures a Rocky Mountain retreat you won’t forget anytime soon!

When you first walk in the door of this beautiful high-style residence, you’ll see big windows with spectacular views of the great outdoors - you’ll feel like you’re really in Colorado here! Featuring 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and enough sleeping arrangements for 6 guests throughout 3,000 square feet of impeccably appointed living space, this exquisite house is certain to please even the most discerning traveler. Luxury features abound throughout the home’s marvelous interior, including designer furniture, massive vaulted ceilings and a wall of soaring 20-foot windows, bringing the breathtaking forest setting indoors. You’ll find the large gourmet kitchen perfect for entertaining or for the home chef, fully outfitted with Viking appliances, basic spices, and a Keurig coffeemaker with starter set of Pods and tea. There’s also double wine and beverage coolers, in addition to the huge built-in refrigerator. Enjoy your culinary masterpiece around the stunning kitchen table, which was commissioned by local artists and built using salvaged factory flooring to complete the rustic ambiance.

The home’s gorgeous master suite is a truly inviting retreat, boasting its own cozy fireplace, flat screen TV, skylights for stargazing, and enormous private deck with comfortable lounge chairs for relaxing. All bedrooms have excellent separation of space and the house is heavily insulated for your comfort. Bose sound systems in the master bedroom and main living area will let you listen to your favorite music during your downtime, while an additional fireplace in the living room will keep you nice and warm on chilly nights. The home’s bonus room serves as a perfect space for yoga and meditation, or can be used as a second living room or extra sleeping area with air bed, as this room has its own flat screen TV. You'll find an assortment of books, card and board games provided in the house for your entertainment needs. If you’re craving that smoky barbeque flavor, feel free to utilize the home’s propane grill - this grill uses the property’s propane tank, so no need to mess with tanks (just remember to shut off the gas after using)!

Look forward to unwinding on the home’s private covered patio, where you can listen to the soothing sound of rainstorms or lounge on the plentiful outdoor seating during cool evenings. Everyone in your group will simply love this property’s wonderfully tranquil setting on 3.5 acres, offering ample room to spread out and relax. There’s a professional grade dog kennel on-site plus an additional dog pen behind the garage, so your canine best friend is more than welcome to come along for the trip. 

Explore your picturesque surroundings by taking the stairs from behind the house down to the scenic creek area with landing, where you’ll encounter a horseshoe pit that is played over the creek. Gather with your loved ones in the home's gigantic backyard, which has a 'Cornhole' or 'Bags' game, depending on what part of the country you're from. You can even hike up the mountain in the backyard if you’re in the mood for an adventure - you may find tons of wildflowers! Most days you can expect to see deer or elk wander by. You certainly won’t have a shortage of incredible scenery and nature to admire here!

This area tends to have a more moderate climate than Denver - summers are cooler and winters have significant snowfall, but Golden doesn’t typically get that bitter arctic chill Denver can experience. From the house, you’ll get to enjoy close proximity to a seemingly endless supply of outdoor recreational activities, from hiking the Jefferson County trails, rock climbing and bicycling to skiing, snowboarding and waterskiing. Jefferson County hosts many pristine open spaces for hiking nearby, and multiple world-class ski resorts are just a short drive away from the house. 

Downtown Denver is conveniently just 20 minutes from the property, while the city of Boulder is only 35 minutes away for business. Other notable attractions nearby include Lakewood’s Soda Lakes for beaches or watersports, the majestic '14-er' Mount Evans, Red Rocks amphitheatre, and several terrific golf courses. No matter what season you plan to visit, you’ll be happy you chose this outstanding Golden vacation rental house as your ultimate home base for exploring Colorado!

Golden Colorado Luxury Home

Using Evolve as the intermediary as part of my VRBO house rental made the overall transaction and experience hassle free. The Evolve folks kept me informed constantly so there were no unpleasant surprises or anxiety in securing, finding, and using the property. The house we rented as awesome on the inside, with a nice peaceful setting.

Wonderful retreat close to Denver

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay - a short drive from Denver and yet we felt secluded in the woods. We were visited by 5 Elk in the morning. A great place to relax with nice accommodations - beautiful kitchen and windows looking out over the back yard!

Country Hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

Country wooded hideaway 15 minutes from Golden. An excellent base for hiking, fishing, visiting Golden or Evergreen communities. House is exactly as advertised and very well cared for. Outdoor grill, Direct TV and WiFi all functioned perfectly. This is a very nice 3 bedroom home on about 3 private, wooded acres. Only negative is the Master Bedroom does not have curtains to block first light at dawn. This is minor for such a lovely place to stay.

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Trust me this place is amazing, quite, lots of wild life, Out of the city but close to it so no long drives when wanting to go into town. Very clean, inside and out. Manager was a huge help and went out of her way to help with anything. I will be renting many more threw her. Would recommend this property to anyone looking for a three bedroom house. It will sleep more no problem. Two modems, one on each floor. I only used wifi on the bottom floor modem and never had a problem. The house was built in a perfect spot for keeping nice and cool. You can open just two windows and get a back draft to cool house quick. It has one of the best kitchens I have ever seen. If you need it, it is there and like new. I will be renting this place many more times.
