Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Awesome place to get away! We came for a steak cook-off and to spend time with friends. But now we will always come to stay here when we come that way! Thank you for the warm hospitality and sharing the home with us. The driveway was a booger but it is being improved according to Glenn ( the manager). Glenn and his family were very nice people.

Owner's Response: Thank you for renting with us and I look forward to your next visit and the annual SCA Glacier Steak Cook-off. Yes. The driveway is no longer an issue. It has been widened by two feet and railroad ties and 6x6 posts have been added as a barrier along the edge. I will add pictures of the improvements and the new hot tub next month. Thank you! Glenn

What a wonderful spot!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Tippy Top. The house, the hot tub, the location, the views, hiking the glacier-all great! Glen answered questions right away and gave great tips on things to do. If we ever go out to CO again I know we will stay at the cabin again.

Immaculate and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This was by far one of the best places we have ever stayed. The cabin was immaculate! It was beautiful. It was peaceful. And wow....the view!!! I could go on and on. And the owner, Glenn, he was truly amazing. We booked the house 6 months prior. I could text him at ANY time and you would hear right back from him! He had all the knowledge about what to do in the area. I can not say enough great things about him or his house. We will be visiting there again and staying in this cabin! This stay deserves 1000 stars! Thank you Glenn and Austina!!

This house is awesome! The view off the porch is amazingly stunning. Hiking to the glacier was taxing for a desk jockey but it is well worth the time and effort. The hot tub was a bonus for sore muscles after the hiking. Idaho springs has very good eating establishments and we were able to enjoy them on multiple nights. Just watch for the wildlife on the way home.

This house is worth every penny. I enjoyed it immensely.
