Plenty of space to prepare a meal from simple to gourmet. There is a BBQ grill on the back deck. Relax upstairs in front of the two gas-burning fireplaces or downstairs in the indoor hot tub - perfect for chilly evenings together. The down stairs has a hot tub that holds 4 people, as well as, a ping pong table. Great for family tournaments. Don't forget about the second and third levels that have 3 bedrooms and separate balconies that offer incredible views of Denver. Don’t want to be inside? Perfect!. Hiking & cycling (road & mountain) – are incredible & easily accessible. Bring your hiking boots! The Enchanted Forest Trail abuts this home's property. It is a wonderful place to take a walk in the morning or at dusk, when you are most likely to run into our most populous neighbors - the elk, deer, turkeys & the occasional red fox. They're beautiful, majestic & look harmless. But it's not advisable to try to pet or feed them. Historic downtown Golden is a quick drive from the house. Settled in 1859, it retains much of its old west charm. Dining options are a plenty as well as wonderful & unique shopping, music, galleries, & nightlife. Interstate 70 is a 3 minute drive from the Retreat and it offers a short drive to Denver, Evergreen, and Idaho Springs. Evergreen Lake is nearby & offers a day's worth of activities, in any season. In winter, there's skating, ice fishing, snowshoeing & cross-country skiing. If you visit over New Year's, celebrate by roasting marshmallows by firelight, gazing at ice thrones & watching the falling ice star & fantastic firework display at midnight. In summer, enjoy fishing, sailing, stand-up paddle boarding, canoeing & more... Rent boats, kayaks, or paddle boards at the lake (or paddle boards at Big R). There's also a music festival, w/ free music on Wed. nights. Depending on when you visit, there is the Bluegrass Festival, Jazz Festival, Music at Myers Ranch Concerts, Rodeo & Parade held on Fathers' Day weekend and the Christmas parade of Lights in Golden. Mount Evans is a short drive away – Hike a 14-er (or drive up North America's highest paved road!), rock climb, ice climb, or just enjoy the alpine beauty. Red Rocks Amphitheater is 10 minute way. Besides being a great concert venue, it's gorgeous, & ideal for hiking. Please know that traveling in Colorado in the months of November through April, you will need a 4 wheel or all wheel drive (AWD) vehicle. Please do not drive to the Retreat at the Enchanted Forest without the proper automobile. **Ring Doorbell video monitoring is in use outside of home** SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS: Master Bedroom: - Queen bed w/ private en suite bathroom Second Bedroom: - Queen bed Third Bedroom: - Queen bed - Twin Bed UNIQUE AMENITIES: -Panoramic views! - Hot Tub - 2 gas-burning stone fireplaces (Upstairs) -Internet-enabled TV (Upstairs) -Antenna or laptop driven wide screen TV (Downstairs) -Ping pong Table -Parking for up to 4 cars 3 Decks ________________________________________________________________________________ PROXIMITY TO: -Denver Airport, I-70W – 40 miles 45 minutes drive -Historic Downtown Golden 12 mins -Downtown Evergreen 20 mins -Evergreen Lake – 20 mins -Zipline & Rafting Tours – 25 mins -Boettcher Mansion & Buffalo Bill’s Grave – 10 mins -Idaho Springs (where gold was first discovered in CO) – 20 mins -Dinosaur Ridge – 15 mins -Red Rocks Park & Amphitheater – 15 mins -Bandimere Speedway – 20 mins -Coors Brewery Tour – 15 mins -Blackhawk Casinos – 30 mins -Loveland Ski Area – 40 mins -Arapahoe Basin – 50 mins -Breckenridge – 1 hr, 15 mins -Vail – 1 hr, 20 mins HIKING TRAILS NEARBY: - Enchanted Forest Trailhead - 3 min drive or you may enter the trail by the north side of the home - Magic Mountain Trail - 5 mins walk from the house - Pay Dirt Trail 15 mins walk from house - Pic and Ax Trail 30 min hike from home -Genesee Park (buffalo & elk herds) – 5 mins drive -Maxwell Falls Lower Trails – 25 mins drive -Chavez and Beaver Brook Trail Loop – 20 mins -Lair O’ the Bear Park – 25 mins -Echo Lake Park – 35 mins -Mount Falcon Castle Trail – 35 mins -Staunton State Park – 35 mins **HOUSE RULES:** Maximum occupancy: 7 - children must be counted in the max. occupancy unless they are under two (2) & are sleeping in a portable crib* (not providMore

About the neighbourhood
A vacation in Evergreen, Colorado, allows visitors to escape city life while still accessing all Denver offers.
