A private room awaits you in the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Let your mind and body relax in our mountain home between Boulder and Golden.

The owners live in the home during your visit. Your bedroom and bathroom are located on the first floor. You will have primary use of the first floor living area and the outside decks. We will share the kitchen, but will primarily live on the second floor during your visit.

We are about 1 hour, 15 minutes from Denver International Airport. During the winter months, either AWD or 4WD is REQUIRED for the last 1/3 mile from the highway to our house. If you can't find an appropriate vehicle through the rental companies, you might consider Turo. Like individuals rent their home through VRBO, Turo helps individuals rent their personal vehicles.

Our home is non-smoking, however we are 420 friendly. We have ash containers for the deck. Please be Smokey the Bear wise and help protect our forest from fires.

We have a sweet dog named Purdy. She is a Dalmatian/Terrier mix, and typically stays close to one of us.

First class all the way. Leaving after 6 days was the hardest part.

  • 5 of 5

Jimmy, Kyle, and Purdy go out of their way to make you feel at home. Jackie and I enjoyed the use of the kitchen and the grill. We truly felt as if the house was our second home. Between the “Tips” posted on cards around the house and the aminities being available and functional, it’s easy from day one to just help yourself. We will be back over and over for more of the peaceful mountain getaway.

Quiet and relaxing. Very well appointed accommodations. Immaculately fresh, warm and clean.

  • 5 of 5

My stay was in the 2nd week of July 2018 and even though the local weather was very hot for the area the house was always comfortable. Plenty of windows I was able to open to allow for fresh air to move freely through the house, without making it feel like I was staying outside. I am an early riser and spent hours every morning on the deck which surrounded three sides of the house. Plenty of comfortable furniture on the deck for me to use. Could have stayed here the whole time and never left and been very happy with my stay. As it was, I was visiting my Nephew who lives in a Denver suburb and for me it was conveniently located close enough to him that it was not a hardship to go there and back when I wanted to. They do have neighbors but the only time I saw anyone else was when they were walking their dog, which was only once. You can see other houses in the distance so it doesn't seem like you are camping but you only occasionally hear a car passing on the road. My host, Mr. Freeman seemed to understand from the git go that I was really looking for a quiet place to stay and treated me with a very unassuming and comforting attitude which made me feel very welcome and unpressured about anything. Close enough to some of the best places to visit that it was the perfect home base to venture out from and not feeled rushed to cut a visit short just to get back to the house. A previous guest mentioned the fact that they have bird feeders that see a lot of activity and they were not wrong. Dozens of birds constantly come to the feeders and I identified at least three dozen different species of birds, many of which I will probably never get to see again. The birds are very fearless and if you sit quietly on the deck they pass you close enough to hear their wings. Very common for the birds to perch within 3 feet of you. You cannot go wrong with choosing to stay here in my opinion.

Rocky Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was fabulous. The owner, Jimmy, could not have been more hospitable. He assured that we had everything that we needed for our stay. The accommodations included a single bedroom with a comfortable queen size bed and an adjacent private bathroom. All linens were clean and fresh. The common areas included a kitchen, dining area and a living room with TV access. Most enjoyable was watching the birds early in the morning after Jimmy hung his multiple bird feeders. The Humming birds were especially delightful.

Owner's Response: Chris, It was wonderful having you and Madison stay for a few days. I enjoyed the chats and getting to know a bit about both of you. I hope the snow wasn’t too much and you enjoyed yourselves despite a little ski accident. We hope to see you all again this summer for some hiking. Cheers! Jimmy

The house is nestled away in the woods with an amazing view and very accommodating to guests. They keep little notecards all over assisting you in finding things throughout the house so you can take advantage of all it has to offer.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights here at the end of December and skied at the nearby Eldora Mountain Resort. It was exactly what we were hoping for! The views were spectacular, the house was kept immaculate, and the owners were very helpful and accommodating. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a peaceful and relaxing getaway. Thanks Jimmy and Kyle - we enjoyed every bit of it!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having Austin and friends stay while on their trip to Colorado. Communication with Austin was among the best that we have had with a guest. He was friendly and courteous during the stay. The group was respectful and tidy. They left early in the mornings to ski and returned early evenings. We would happily welcome them for a return trip at anytime.
