Retreat to the Enchanted Forest
Retreat to the Enchanted Forest....Great Views....Hot Tub!
"The Retreat to the Enchanted Forest" is a spacious, mountain home offering panoramic views South of the City of Denver, as well as, the surrounding foothills. Located on top of Lookout Mountain, in Golden Colorado, this 4 level home offers plenty of space for the guest to stay, but cozy and serine to enjoy the family gathering.
This home is directly adjacent to the APEX Trail system. A 700 acre refuge managed by Jefferson County. Here with over 10 miles of trails you can hike and see the stunning views the foothills have to offer.
There is a occupied 1 bedroom apartment on property but you will have the main house all to yourselves.
You will love the fully-equipped kitchen! 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.
