"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 separate living area that is occupied 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.

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.

5/5 stars
This place was a gem. I have almost no complaints besides the fact that the hot tub did not warm up one night, the ping pong area felt sketchy at first, and the biggest TV does not function without an HDMI cord. However, Brian came over within an hour of me communicating with him and helped set the hot up for the next day, which was nice. The ping pong honestly was just fine and still playable. The ground did not feel stable, but after attempting it, it actually was fine. I played with my wife for 30 minutes and had a good time. And the TV downstairs could work with an HDMI, so not a hard fix. It would be nice if that was automatically included, though. We saw deer and elk outside the house, which was lovely. The showers worked well, and the beds were comfortable. There is also plenty of room for big hangouts. It was all quite nice. This place is not cheap by any means (but also not the most expensive), but it is worth considering for those who can afford it because the experience is great.
