Little Pink House

About Susan Hunter Smith
We were looking for a mountain home that we could enjoy on a regular basis. After looking for sometime, we decided Leadville was the perfect choice. Our two girls have learned to ski, fish, ice skate, and build lots of snow forts! We hope you enjoy Leadville and our house as much as we do.
Susan Hunter Smith purchased this House in 2008
Why Susan Hunter Smith chose Leadville
Leadville has a lot to offer, but still feels like you are getting away. While it is only 23 miles from I-70, you feel like you are away from it all! Leadville has so much to offer...biking, fishing, skiing, ice skating, hiking, snowmobiling, antiquing, and much more. We chose this house because of the history. As many homes in Leadville, this one was moved from Climax Mine to where it is today. Not to mention, with 2 girls...how can you go wrong with a pink house!

Perfect Summer House
This was a wonderful house -- clean and spacious feeling for it size, nicely equipped in the kitchen, and in a great location. The house is well-cared for and has some nice personal touches, without being at all cluttered. It felt charmingly mountain-town, but nicely renovated for modern comfort. We were pleasantly surprised by how comfortable we were and were reluctant to leave after a few days. I highly recommend this house if you are visiting Leadville.
We rented this house for the weekend to race the Leadville 100 mtb. Perfect house! Great location! Couldn’t have asked for a better setup.
Great Place. Clean and comfortable.
We enjoyed are stay here. It was fine for both me and my wife and two sons. The pull out bed was great for the kids and the separate bedroom was nice for us. We would definately stay here again and recommend others stay here.
Cute well-kept house
This cute pink house was perfect for a weekend away for my husband, daughter & I. The bed was comfy and the views on the mountains were amazing! We went snowmobiling just north of Leadville which was an unforgettable experience! Aside from that we spent most of our time "downtown" which was super close by. We happened to visit during the Ski-Joring racing weekend and we enjoyed watching that crazy event!
Great location. Clean. Does the job.
Everything was clean and readily available.
Short drive to skiing.
Would stay again.
Very nice place!!
We really enjoyed the fire place. Wish there was an ax or kindling available, was tough to get started. We had some great scouts with us to get it going. Also sent husband to buy an iron, I didnt find one there. Would definately rent again.
At an elevation of 10,430ft above sea level this historic mining community sits in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Situated at the headwaters of the Arkansas River this old mining town lies between the Sawatch range to the west and the Mosquito range to the east. There are over 19 14'ers between these two ranges and Leadville is in the middle of it all!
With over 310 days of sunshine a year the area enjoys very moderate temperatures. Winters are not what you would think at this location/elevation due the the lack of moisture in the air. It's cold, but not 'bone chilling', and locals have been known to only wear flannel long sleave shirts on many winter days. The summers are quite enjoyable with temperatures that seldom reach into the 80's and there are very few bugs this high up.
Leadville is the highest incorporated city in North America and the county seat of Lake County. It is also one of Colorado’s largest historic districts.
