Reviews for this vacation cottage rental in Central City, Colorado
We had a fantastic time! Everything with your Victorian Retreat was perfect! We didn't encounter any problems and really enjoyed the place - you have quite a terrific property and we look forward to staying again sometime. The friends we brought with us haven't rented from vacationhomerentals before and they were tremendously impressed with the entire process and the quality for value. The home was very well stocked and very quiet which made for a very relaxing weekend. Thanks so much!

I can't rave enough about the helpfulness of the manager, Julia. She is friendly, professional and very accommodating. The cottage is high on a hill overlooking the historic Central City and it brings you back in time to when things were so much simpler. The cottage is immaculate and well equipped. The beds were very comfortable and the living area much nicer than any hotel around. I wish we could have stayed longer. The photos were accurate and the cottage was very inviting and well maintained. I would recommend this for one or two couples.
"We Had a Terrific Stay!"
Thank you so much for a terrific stay! The house was great and we all had an excellent time. We are looking forward to doing this again.
Good afternoon Julia. We LOVE it here!! Thank you for the amazing accomodations.
We very much enjoyed our stay at your cabin in Central City, CO.
Julia, we loved your 2 places, one so different from the other and both a home away from home. Wonderful time. Thanks again for allowing us to stay. The Central City home was very special and I would travel across the country again just to use that bathtub. We had a good time, and thank your husband for the travel advice. We enjoyed the Opera House in Central City - full of history!
We enjoyed our stay at the cottage so much! What a sweet, cozy, well appointed little place. The kitchen had anything we could possibly need in the way of small appliances, which was fun. The view from the porch was lovely. We enjoyed breakfast on the pretty patio set in the morning and in the evening it was neat to watch the thunderstorms out over the mountains. Everything looked new and clean. All your little gift baskets and breakfast foods were very much appreciated by us all. If we come out again, we will hope the place is available. Again, thank you for all the thoughtful little touches you provided. It made our stay so pleasant. Thanks
