Join us at Angel’s Landing where you hear nothing but the Aspens quake in the gentle breeze…and maybe some curious baby foxes foraging for food or the resident moose and deer mewing as they wander across our drive. Welcome to our fully off-the-grid mountain hideaway, which may become your place of peace, quiet and respite in the Rockies as you rest, relax and restore…before embarking from here to your next mountain adventure!
This bottom floor of a beautiful home is a great place to stay and explore the foothills.
Only 10 minutes from historic mining town, Idaho Springs, their brewery/cidery/bars and other restaurants/shops and whitewater rafting, adventure park, fishing, hunting, cycling and mine tours. You’re also welcome to stick around a few days to enjoy hiking trails as you step out the door on either our property or adjacent forest service land. A deck with BBQ grill is also available (incredible mountains views and serenity included).

Apartment has wood stove, in-floor heat, full bathroom with shower, comfy sofa (can be for an additional guest). You can feel at home with coffee maker, tea pot, TV, WIFI, firestick, refrigerator, cook top and small convection oven with dishes/silverware, books, chest full of games/puzzles, and an extra area right outside your door with luxurious old teak furniture to enjoy the mountain peace and quiet.
Although we live up a county-maintained road, it is dirt, very steep and gets bad washboards (bumps) regularly. From June through August, a front-wheel drive car is enough; however from September to May is REQUIRED to be traveling in a vehicle that provides either AWD or AWD capabilities.
Owner/Property Manager will not be available or able to provide rides up or down the road. No refunds will be provided if your vehicle won’t make it up the road.
Video Monitoring on site.
No smoking inside the home.
This is a pet friendly apartment but there is a $50 pet fee per pet
We are at 9000’ elevation in the mountains, fully off-grid, with well-water, solar-powered electricity, septic and propane. We respectfully request that you honor those systems and conserve water, power and sewer usage during your stay. Our septic is very sensitive, NOTHING goes into toilets or drains besides ONLY toilet paper...and your business, of course.
Please be aware, be kind, don’t steal our stuff and help us conserve. We are excited to have you stay and hope you have a wonderful, peaceful rest…up here with the angels!”
