Stream-Side Mountain Cabin at St. Mary's Glacier! 5 Acre Wildlife Sanctuary

Located in: Idaho Springs
Looking for the perfect weekend retreat less than an hour from Denver, but surrounded by the great outdoors? Our stream-side home at St. Mary's Glacier has it all. Romance? The sound of the creek just yards away fills the home from almost every window; the great room with a vaulted paneled ceiling and windows filling the entire southern wall with a view of the stream below and Mt. Evans in the distance; a fireplace nestled in a stone hearth; and warm touches everywhere - knit throws to wrap up in, soft lighting, natural hickory floors, paneled ceilings in every room, and windows that open up your view to the great outdoors.

Nature? Stroll through our five acres with our guidebooks and identify the flora and fauna, or gather your own kindling for that evening's fire. Our property goes north to the road that borders Lake Quivera - a perfect early morning stroll to catch the sunrise while waiting for your coffee to brew. From our deck (and sometimes, ON our deck) I've seen moose, deer, coyote, fox, bear, beaver, racoons, muskrat as well as 48 different species of birds. We keep food in stock for the feeders so you'll have a chance to view them too.

Fishing? We stock the stream on the property with Rainbow Trout every year, and the 2 lakes within half a mile are also fully stocked. Native Brook Trout also abound.

Outdoor adventure? We'll show you the nearby hiking trails and we'll show you where you can find the scree and timber brought down by an avalanche; where flocks of bluebirds return every March just as the pasque flowers begin to bloom. And challenge you to find the small unmarked gravesite up on Yankee Hill.

A retreat for the mind and heart? We have unusual books on almost every subject - find an old favorite or make a new discovery.

And finally, we've tried to think of the things that will make your visit perfect...there's a large propane grill on the upper level deck; the TV is in it's own room on the entry level so the sports fanatics don't intrude on those upstairs contemplating nature. Lots of room for privacy, with the TV room, bedroom and bath on entry level; the great room, 2nd bedroom, 2nd bath, kitchen and dining area on the middle level, and the 3rd bedroom loft above it all (perfect place for the kids to camp in the evening). We've stocked the kitchen with all the usual things and then some, and our medicine cabinet has the usual first aid items.

We'll have lots of brochures on hand - to help you find the perfect place to go antiquing or dining or where to explore the unique recreation that the local towns provide, as well as a large map of the St. Mary's area. And lots of firewood stockpiled for the evenings. Remember - St. Mary's - it's more than just the glacier!
