St. Mary's Glacier Retreat w/Hot Tub & Stunning Views

Idaho Springs, Colorado

Enjoy the solitude of the Rockies at our home located in the very popular St. Mary's Subdivision of Idaho Springs. We are roughly 2 miles from the St. Mary's Glacier trail head and 20 minutes from Downtown Idaho Springs (Many boutiques, restaurants and bars)! We are 30 minutes from the closest ski resort (Loveland Pass) and only an hour and 15 minutes from Vail! Go white water rafting, zip-lining or fly-fishing in the Clear Creek River as close as 20 minutes from our home. If it's a little city flavor you desire, Denver is only 50 minutes away while being able to return to the peace and quiet of our mountain getaway. With views for miles, a hot-tub, a stocked kitchen, luxury bedding, and premium cable, you'll have all that you need for a relaxing and enjoyable stay!

The Space:
Upon entering you will be greeted with stunning mountain views and a well designed space. This extravagant vacation retreat is split between 2 levels offering different options for entertaining and space for the family to spread out. Our main level has our kitchen, dining table for 6, living room and our master bedroom w/ an en-suite bathroom. The loft is accessed through the master bedroom. (Please note the loft is not private, as it is above the master bedroom and living room). Retreat downstairs and you will find our family living room, 2nd bedroom, 2nd bathroom and the access to our deck and hot-tub. Our sleeper sofa is located in the downstairs family room along with a small desk for catching up on emails or work.

Our 2 bedrooms are equipped with Dreamcloud mattresses, Casper pillows, Smart TV’s w/ premium cable, noise machines, and furnishing from West Elm and CB2. The loft is equipped with a Casper mattress. Please note: The master bedroom does not have curtains on the top 2 windows. If you plan on sleeping in, please travel with eye masks. There are also 3 decorative cutouts up high in the wall between the master bedroom and living room that can take away from complete privacy.

Once on our outside deck, you will find our hot-tub overlooking stunning views. In late spring and summer, enjoy the sounds of our man-made water fountain, that pulls water from a stream that rolls through our property. The natural wild flowers are a sight to be seen too!

Our home is a perfect launch point for outdoor enthusiasts or those who simply wish to come relax and enjoy the mountains and scenery.

We are located 10,500 feet above sea level. Located off off of I-70, we are a 20 minute drive up the mountain with the last 0.25 miles of the drive being a gravel road. We recommend AWD or 4WD during snowy season. We find the drive relatively easy for the elevation we are located at HOWEVER, this is subjective to each individuals experience with the climate and natural elements. Parking is located right off of the road which makes parking pretty easy (no inclines). However, you will be required to go down 20 steps to access the front door. We do provide snow removal in the winter months and do our very best to maintain it but with unpredictable high winds throughout the year, snow drifts are common. We cannot guarantee the steps will be completely cleared prior to your arrival. Please come prepared with the right gear. This means hiking shoes or snow boots with good footing. We do provide snow shovels for guests to use for light snow or in-between snow plows. Many guests love and enjoy this experience, but if you are not the adventurous type or do not have experience in these elements this might not be the rental for you. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns before booking.

Guest Access:
Our entire home is available to guests. Self-checkin instructions will be sent 48 hours before your stay.

Getting Around:
We highly recommend a 4WD or AWD drive vehicle in snowy season. We feel the drive is relatively easy given the elevation but is relative to your experience with high elevation and mountain roads. Send us a message if you have any questions or concerns.

Other Things to Note:
If it snows during your stay guests may need to shovel the deck to clear a path. 4WD vehicles are required October - May and AWD is required year-round. Please inquire prior to booking if you have questions regarding road conditions. If roads are open and you can't make it to the rental no refunds will be issued.

    Quality and Luxury Throughout with Spectacular Views

    5/5 Stayed Mar 20, 2022

    My husband and I wanted a secluded get a way with quality furnishings, and after hours of searching settled on this beautiful mountain cabin. The furnishings did not disappoint, and the luxury of the bed, bedding and towels was sublime. We spent as much time in the hot tub as possible, plenty hot and offered unforgettable views from the deck. We like to cook and found everything needed including a beautiful welcome basket with wine and snacks. Should we come to Colorado again this would definitely be our choice. We visited the casinos in Black Hawk, Keystone Ski Resort and had down time watching the multiple tv’s provided. An excellent vacation.

    Perfect mountain getaway!
