Photos and Description of the Georgetown vacation chalet rental

A tasteful, comfortable spot to enjoy the mountains in the heart of Georgetown.

A Recipe for a Great Vacation

Beautiful, Historic Georgetown… it’s true! Start with towering mountains that cradle the picturesque village of architectural homes built in the 1800’s. Flower infused yards line the narrow streets. Add museums, unique shops, and quaint award winning restaurants. Stir in the famous Clear Creak which runs through the middle of the entire community on its mission to top off beautiful Georgetown Lake. Season this with numerous festivals and the authentic Georgetown Loop scenic railroad. Garnish with small town, friendly locals and the best LOCATION in Colorado. This is what awaits when you vacation rent our private chalet duplex right on the Clear Creek in Georgetown, Colorado.

Our “Georgetown Spot” vacation rental is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath chalet style duplex. It was built in 1973 by speculative investors looking to cash in on Colorado’s 1976 Winter Olympic bid. However, the Olympics were not awarded to Colorado. The project, which included all of the duplexes along the Clear Creek on Clear Creek Drive, went bust. Eventually the structures were made available to the public and sold off.

The chalet is post-and-beam constructed and receives ample sunshine with its true southern exposure. Parking is easy right next to the entrance and there is a small fenced yard. Sitting under the big fur tree in the grass area closest to the creek and watching people stroll by is highly recommended!

The chalet was recently renovated specifically for vacation rental activity. It is ideal for one or two couples or for a family. The main living area features a sun-drenched wall of windows that looks out at the Clear Creek and the entrances to Guanella Pass and Loveland Pass. The large open lower level has a vaulted pine ceiling, counter bar, as well as a dining table area and living room with gas fireplace. The fully equipped kitchen has stainless appliances, washer and dryer, and a walk-in pantry. The swivel wall-mounted, hi-def television with Bose sound is visible from anywhere on the lower level and balcony. Step out onto any of the three lower level decks - grill on the back deck or watch the Clear Creek flow past on the other two.

The inside balcony of our Georgetown unit features a custom copper pipe and beveled glass paneled handrail and copper stair banister. The “honeymoon suite” on the balcony level has a queen-size canopy bed with bedside refrigerator. There is an antique dresser and large closet plus a sitting area with two comfortable chairs. Relax and read a book or gaze out at the beautiful Georgetown scenery. The glass slider lets you out onto the private exterior 2nd floor balcony for an even better look at the Clear Creek and the surrounding mountains. There is also a second, small bedroom with full size bed and skylight on the second floor.

The master bedroom on the first floor features a vaulted ceiling, huge oak queen size bed and gigantic closets. It is located on the opposite end of the house from the honeymoon suite which guarantees privacy for times when two couple are sharing the unit.

The chalet is furnished with a combination of antiques and modern furnishing like the comfortable leather Nattuzzi sofa and love seat. Hot air ballooning artwork abounds as well as some traditional ski chalet decor. Beveled glass, stained glass, and ceramic accents are found throughout the unit.
