Description of the Idaho Springs vacation cottage rental
Little Cottage on Clear Creek is located in historic Silver Plume, a historic mining town known for silver mines.

Silver Plume, home of the George Rowe Museum, is a very small, old, rural mining town dating from the Colorado gold and silver rush of the last four decades of the 19th century.

Silver Plume is the closest town to Loveland ski resort - only 9 miles. Enjoy various winter activities in the winter (sledding, skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, ice skating) and numerous activities in the summer (water rafting, mountain climbing, biking, fishing... ). There are trails, lakes, parks, restaurants, shops, museums and many more places to visit.

The cottage has 2 bedrooms ; each bedroom is furnished with a queen size bed and a pull out in the living room for additional sleeping place if needed.
Newly remodeled bathroom is our pride: it has a clawfoot brand new vintage style bathtub, a retro style new vanity, tile, and more..
The cottage is located right on the creek: just sit on the bench, listen to the creek, relax and enjoy watching the water rushing through...

Awesome and remote

Beautiful location, beautiful cabin. 3 BR, 2 bath. 2 queens and a single bunk. Good matresses. Scott met us and led us up 6+miles of dirt and rugged road. The quiet and beauty was wonderful. Everything we needed was provided - sheets, towels, kitchen gear. Very relaxed.

Owner's reply:

It is actually 2BD/1BA cabin with a queen size bed in each and a queen/full size futon in the living room. The cabin is in Idaho Springs itself, it is not remote..

Mountain Goat Family & Mr. Fox

The Mt. Evans cabin was very clean , comfortable and so darling. We, four adults had plenty of room and we loved being so close to town that you could walk in 5 minutes. We also enjoyed the wild life - mountain goat family and the fox at night. It was also very nice to have the use of a washer & dryer. I would definately rent it again.

Perfect for skiing Winter Park

We are a young couple that took a short vacation to CO for some skiing and stayed in the Mt. Evans cabin. Great location on a quiet street. Cabin was roomy and warm with convenient off street parking, was stocked with dishes, coffee grinder, etc. and brochures about local attractions (check out Indian Hot Springs!). Less than an hour drive to Winter Park even in rush hour traffic. Great property managers to work with. We highly recommend!

Owner Supplied Testimonials
Guestbook

Hi Julia,
Thank you very much for everything including our anniversary champagne! Nice place to stay and close to everything. We walked into town. Thank you for all the right furnishings also. We really enjoyed our stay a lot!! Friday was great view day from the back deck and Saturday we had snow flurries almost all day. But, as I said we were close to town and walked in. Wonderful stay!!!
Thank you very much,
M.

Idaho Springs is an awesome town and the cabin was perfect! It was easy to find, had nice off-street parking, friendly neighbors and was super-cozy. The deck out back was great for the dog to hang out on, and for us humans to enjoy a cup of coffee while watching the wildlife only a few feet away! The owners were great to rent from and made us feel right at home at the cabin! We definitely recommend it highly!!

L. & B.

The cabin is a clean, cozy, well appointed 2 bedroom getaway in historic Idaho Springs. It is a great base to get out and see the Colorado Rockies without the heat, noise and sprawl of Denver. (or the traffic). Everyone in town was extremely friendly. The cabin has all the amenities, but with none of the pretentiousness or plastic facade of the "big name" ski towns.

Best regards

Rick

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are the most fun things to do at your vacation rental?
A: Several ski areas are within easy drive of the cabin. Idaho Springs is only a few steps away, with ample shopping and restaurants. Denver International Airport is only 1 hour away!
Tour a real gold mine. Relax in the famous hot springs resort.
Q: What makes your vacation rental special?
A: Besides the easy access to several ski resorts within 25 - 40 minutes away the house is 30 minutes from downtown Denver, where you can enjoy all the amenities of a large city, including four major league sports, museums, fine dining, theater, and a variety of entertainment venues. Yet you are also within 5-15 minutes of three small mountain communities - Georgetown with its Georgetown Loop Scenic Railroad tour, Idaho Springs with its hot springs resort, and Empire where you'll enjoy the Peck House Hotel and Restaurant, established in 1862. Skiing is within easy access. Loveland, on the Continental Divide is a half hour drive. Winter Park, a premier ski resort and town, offers outdoor activities year round. Summit County, where you will find the best skiing in Colorado, is an hour drive. Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, and Keystone provide a variety of skiing adventures as well as small mountain town charm, boutique shopping and factory outlet stores. Central City and Black Hawk, is Colorado's gambling mecca. While some may enjoy a performance at the Central City Opera House, others might take a gold mine tour.
If you are an outdoor enthusiast, you will be enthralled by the opportunities for hiking, biking, rafting, climbing, fishing, golfing, and ATVing.
Q: What's the coolest nearby activity?
A: This is where the Colorado Gold Rush began in 1859! You can still explore working mines and pan for gold and gemstones or discover abandoned ghost towns nearby. The cabin is located on an historic gold and mineral mining claim. There were never any actual mines on the property, but you might get lucky panning for gold in the creek!

For serious adventure seekers, take a whitewater rafting trip on one of the steepest raft-able waterways in the nation, moments away and still one of Colorado's best kept secrets. Or try one of several new Zip Lines close by. Miles of wilderness trails surround the cabin. Fish, Hike, Bike, Cross Country Ski and Snowshoe!
