Owls Nest Idaho Springs
5.0/5 stars
We loved our stay at Owls Nest in Idaho Springs. It was located close to everything you could want to see if the Denver Area. We also loved our accomdations in general though. The place was clean and perfect for my husband and I to kick back and relax. Lottie was so great checking in and making sure everything was perfect. I would highly recommend this Airbnb to anyone!

This is just the cutest place ever and Lottie was such a great host! Walk up the flight of stair in this Victorian house and you feel like you've walked into a curated shop. Everything from the pillows, to the wallpaper, to the art work is boutique making the price point on this rental hard to beat. We were able to easily access both Winterpark and Copper Mountain resorts within an hour of the house and once we were back it was a 2 block walk to the breweries in downtown Idaho Springs. You couldn't ask for a better location. Oh and the BED! It is a memory foam dream come true! It was super hard to get out of bed every morning. Only note: the house is gorgeous but it is older so there is no central A/C or heat. The Owner provided space heaters which were more than enough to make the space comfortable. Honestly.... cant think of a single bad thing to say. Can't wait to go back and stay in the summer.
