Cozy, peaceful mountain getaway!
My fiance and I had a amazingly peaceful and ever so quiet mountain stay! The home is a perfect size for a couple of people, was clean and had everything we needed. Being able to sit outside star-gazing in the cool evenings was a nice change from our usual Chicago warm muggy bug-filled summer nights. And I can not express just how quiet it really was! The owner, Tracy, was the sweetest person! She was amazing at giving us the level of privacy we desired and still answered any questions we had in record speed! Her dogs were incredibly well behaved and quiet. (We miss Snortsalot dearly!) We were there for a week, which seemed way too short for everything this area has to offer! LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! We found the location of this cozy home not only stunningly beautiful with its own mountain views, but situated perfectly, guaranteeing a delightful ride no matter which road you take from there. Upper Bear Creek Rd became our staple route ensuring a perfectly delightful drive to town and back! When you are staying at Tailings not only is the action of Denver just a short drive away but so are other amazing destinations such as the majestic Mount Evans! And for music lovers....our drive to a concert at Red Rocks was quick, easy and enjoyable. The town of Evergreen itself was lively with shops of all sorts, a beautiful lake, golfing and restaurants galore! (We totally recommend Beau Jo's for some delicious Colorado style pizza and friendly staff!) Definitely take a hike through Elk Meadow Park and perhaps come upon an entire herd of grazing elk like we did! We had an amazing and memorable time and hope to return one day soon!
