Very nice property. Very clean and as described. Didn't realize it was up as high as it was so had a little trouble adjusting to the altitude. But other than that it was very nice. Beautiful scenery.
The location was great, but a few minor improvements could make the overall location great. There was inadequate lighting in the kitchen area. We had to bring in a lamp from the bedroom to see when cooking and washing dishes. The bathroom wasn't as clean as it should have been.
Be ready for a hike, but it's aabsolutely worth it.
My expectations were high and the house/Drew blew them out of the water. We booked the house a long ways ahead of time, but a week beforehand saw a poor review that left us a bit skeptical. Soon after, I gave Drew a call and he cleared the air completely. Confident in the other 5 star reviews (which is every review but one) we kept the house, and man was it worth it. He's an extremely personable but professional owner that not only is prompt and accurate in his responses, but also takes it one step further. The trip in is a bit of a hassle, especially at night, with mountain driving that proves to be a bit challenging for a midwest city-driver like myself, but Drew gace excellent instructions and guidance for our trip up to the home.
When we arrived, the area was tidy, well put together and well tempered. The control of your own thermostat, cable TV, and open floor plan for a group of people was phenomenal. It provided ample space to spread out, as well as a large central area for us to be together in. The backyard was also a hit along with the included volleyball. What time we didn't spend exploring, we spent in the yard and enjoying the fresh air.
Again, Drew took it a step further by instructing us, having known we were going hiking the first morning at the VRBO, to take a scenic route that he laid out in detail. The views were absolutely breath-taking, and the drive, although longer than the switchback route, was smooth and enjoyable.
I would highly recommend staying at Drew's place. The location and home themselves are enough to warrant a 5-star rating, but Drew himself surpasses the rating system on this platform. Thank you for a great stay and, if we come back, we most certainly will keep this location in mind!
Beautiful Getaway !!
My sister and I chose this property because of the location and privacy. This property did not disappoint. Drew was very helpful and kept in touch with us regularly. The cabin was perfect for the two of us and had internet, wifi and a DVD player. My bed was very comfy. I slept very well with the window open. The scenery was spectacular and Idaho Springs was the nicest town to visit, eat and shop. Thanks so much Drew for taking such good care of us. We had a wonderful time !!
Great location, very poor experience
First let me say the location and area is fantastic. The communication with Drew, the owner was excellent too but unfortunately we left after the first night and booked a hotel.
This is a bottom floor or basement rental of a house that you see on the main profile. Based on the exercise equipment in the Center this is probably the exercise room when renters are not around.
The beds have some type of pillow top that make them extremely soft. But that is not the main issue.
At 5:00 am we were woken up to loud noise and walking above the bedrooms. I can imagine that the kitchen from the house is above the rooms. People getting ready, and leaving the house (we booked it during the week so maybe leaving for work).
Not a positive experience and decided to book a room in a hotel for the second night. Drew was apologetic but made few amends.
Peaceful Mountain View’s
Just what we needed, beautiful home tucked in the mountains. Gorgeous views and beautiful landscape. Had a fire in the portable fireplace, enjoyed watching the birds and critters. Will definitely return! Thanks so much for all your prompt responses to all our questions.
