Great location and nice duplex!

  • 5 of 5

Duplex is located across the street from Clear Creek and a block from the lake. Duplex is clean and updated. Would stay there again. Dog friendly with its own fenced in yard.

Great vacation in colorful Colorado!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth stay in Clear Creek Retreat and we loved it as usual. Within the last years the owner has renewed so many things in the house so that it was more cozy from year to year.

It offers a lot of comfort for vacation - we really feel at home. We hope to be able to visit Colorado as offen as possible and we would be happy to spend a lot more weeks in Georgetown in that house!

Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our group of five were very comfortable during our stay at this property. Some much appreciated features were having two queen beds in the master and an ice maker that was prolific - I know that sounds silly, but we've stayed in so many properties where we've had to go out and buy ice when we get ready to make drinks. We liked having breakfast on the deck in the mornings. Not fancy, but comfortable, which is just what a mountain cabin should be. A minor suggestion would be to get a couple of mixing/serving bowls for the kitchen.
