    Peaceful Eldora Mountain Retreat

    Historic resort in Nederland with Ski-in/ski-out access
    COVID-19 Update: We block out 72 hours before each reservation, so the house sits empty after cleaning for at least 24 hours prior to guest arrival. Nestled in one of the most beautiful locations in the Colorado Rocky mountains, this retreat suits writers, academics, and nature lovers who desire tranquility. It makes a heavenly destination at the end of a day of outdoor activity. In the summer months, wildflowers abound. Those who are lucky, may see moose, bear, bobcat, and fox from the windows. The house makes a great base for Indian Peaks hiking or backpacking. The Hessie trail starts 1 mile up a dirt road from the house. The house is in a central location for a variety of front range climbing areas including Boulder Canyon which is ~10 minutes drive away. In the winter, guests can snow shoe or back country ski from the house (assuming there is snowpack). Eldora Mountain Resort nordic and Alpine ski centers are 5 miles up the road. In the winter, the house is not for the timid... it is perfect for people who relish the opportunity to experience some of the most radical unpredictable winter weather to be found in the lower 48, from the comfort of a warm interior with large windows to gaze out of. We don't have a TV or Stereo, so it only suits guests who are satisfied with Wifi access. My husband and I live on the property and are likely to be staying in the house next door (~100 yards away) when you are here. We are seeking quiet, respectful guests to share our slice of heaven with. We are happy to help in any way upon request and can offer day trip recommendations to sport climbers, hikers, and skiers.

        • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities

        We wanted a super relaxed mountain weekend. This place was perfect. The house is small, modern and extremely well thought out. Windows galore to look out in the beautiful mountains. No TV was perfect. My partner is an interior designer and she just gushed about the design and function of the built-ins, space utilization and layout. You want to relax and take in some beautiful scenery? This place is perfect.

        5/5 Excellent

          Quiet retreat

          We came here to unplug, rest, and get out into nature. It was great. It's a well-kept, sunny, uncluttered, private, and peaceful spot. Heidi was on top of the details and took great care of us.

          5/5 Excellent

            Great getaway in a fascinating location

            As advertised, the house is comfortable and very pleasant, well maintained by the owner and well appointed for a short or long stay. Heidi was a great host. Ideal location if you just want to recharge or engage in vigorous physical activity immersed in beautiful nature.
