Space 3,700 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 6 nights


About the property

5 bed, 3 bath - sleeps 12+ on three levels. 30 mins to ski or 30 min to Denver

Our home is perfect for those coming to the Summit with friends or family. We are within easy distance of 5 ski resorts: Loveland, Arapahoe Basin, Eldora, Winter Park, and Breckenridge. Each is between 30 minutes to 60 minutes away. When you want to get out, we are located just 1 mile off I-70 outside off Idaho Springs with its historic downtown, restaurants, and shopping. While the skiers head to the slopes, others can be in downtown Denver (30 miles) with all it has to offer. Our home sleeps up to 14 people. At 3,700 sq ft spread over 3 floors, it provides families and friends both privacy and plenty of communal gathering places. Amenities include a wood-burning stove, ping pong table and gaming table. Grocery shopping is just 5 minutes away so going out or getting food for a crowd is no problem.

When the ski season is over there is plenty to do. We are minutes away from white water rafting, world-class hiking, zip-lining, stocked fishing ponds, great mountain biking, and other outdoor fun.


The property is not reserved until the owners have received BOTH a rental agreement and half the rental rate. Tenants will pay lodging tax, insurance, and cleaning fees. Half the total is due upon booking, and the other half 30 days prior to booking. Cancellations made more than 60 days out will be refunded 100% percent, 30-60 days will be refunded 50%, and less than 30 days will not be refunded. The cleaning fee is $300. We do not accept cash or check. (If you choose to bring a pet, please note there is a fully refundable pet damage deposit required.)

Please note that holidays are quick to book so request your quote early! We look forward to sharing our home with you!

About Ryan & Liz Hammond

Our family of 6 splits time between our new home in Idaho Springs, Colorado and Seoul, South Korea. We figured why not share our home when we are away!

Ryan & Liz Hammond purchased this house in 2014

Why Ryan & Liz Hammond chose Front Range Colorado

Originally, we were just looking at the communities here on the Summit to be our new home in the States. When we walked into this house we fell in love with it right away. It is the perfect house for hosting family and friends both in its unique layout and its beautiful but convenient location. It can accommodate so many activities both on and around the property we just had to make it ours. We'd love to share this special place with your family and friends too!

What makes this house unique

Besides the location, what we love is just how functional the house is for our large family gatherings. In the summers, we will often have 10 or more people visiting our family of 6! This house gives plenty of room for fun for the cousins but allows us our privacy as well. We thought this feature would be especially appealing to those looking to reunite with other groups and families. It's also accessible to an ideal amount of various activities for all tastes, close to the airport, and boasts mountain living with modern amenities and easy access to skiing, the airport, and the city. What more could we ask for?

Fantastic getaway for large groups

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the house, large enough for our family of 15. There kids enjoyed the tree house and having their own spaces. The porch was large and enjoyable in the summer. The house was large enough that every family has their own spaces and didn't feel like they were crammed in. Local river rafting was fantastic.

Beautiful Property and Awesome House

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house with space for a few families. Kitchen is well stocked for easy cooking of big meals. Also, there is plenty of privacy with wild deer walking around the property everyday. Everything in the house is well maintained and all the accommodations are very comfortable, from the couches to the beds.

Great family home and location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house for 5 nights. We had a large group of 11 people, ages 6 months to 80 years old. Everyone had a great time. The house had everything we needed. It even had a pack and play for the 6 month old. We used the outside propane grill one night for burgers and it worked great. There was plenty of room both inside and outside on the porches. Idaho Springs is about a 2 minute drive away. There were lots or choices for eating out within a 3 minute drive. Safeway was in town and had everything we needed for our stay. We loved that there were bedrooms on 3 floors. Gave everyone some privacy. Denver was literally only 35 minutes away. There were so many things to do nearby. We did a mine tour, hiked up to St Mary's glacier, spent a day in Denver, and drove up to Mt Evans. While sitting on the porch in the evenings we observed numerous elk on the mountain across road from the house and what we thought was a wolf.

We have already talked about returning and staying a little longer. We would definitely recommend this house. The owner answered all my emails in a timely manner and was very helpful. Idaho Springs is a lovely little town with lots to see and do.

Family gathering for my son's wedding.

  • 5 of 5

The dining room accommodation made this gathering a very special home to assemble everyone (close enough to Denver airport to fly into) for our delicious meals together. The table set for 17, ranging from 1 year old to 91 years old was a perfect setting to celebrate our stay for my son's wedding in nearby Evergreen Lake house. Even without electricity one morning, the gas stove worked for making eggs and boiling water for coffee along with the BBQ to cook bacon, sausages, and toast.

The spacious room was great for the three kids to run around and enjoy themselves while we could enjoy the outside views. This home is cozy with all the amenities necessary, but do not expect the glamorous up-scale vacation home ... thank you Cindy for all your assistance making this vacation / wedding a perfect place to be!
