This is a chic little rental home with a BIG personality! It has all anyone could want after a day of adventure or concert-going to kick-back and relax. It's also the perfect artist's or yogi retreat. A fully-equipped kitchen, two queen beds, beautiful open floor plan, private 1-vehicle garage, seasonal terraced gardens, stunning mountain views, separate reading/writing/yoga/space with a funky vibe - you'll love it! A playful Havenese puppy may greet you during your stay. He belongs to the co-hosts who live on the property.

A short 7-minute drive to the famous Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre, this home is located on Bear Creek Canyon Scenic Mountain Drive between Morrison and Evergreen. The home is across the street from Lair O' the Bear Park which features diverse wildlife, hiking trails, fishing and picnic areas.

Hiking & cycling (road & mountain) – are incredible & easily accessible. Bring your hiking boots & bikes! It is a wonderful place to take a walk or a jog in the morning or at dusk, when you are most likely to run into our most populous neighbors - the mule deer! They're beautiful, majestic & look harmless. But it's not advisable to try to pet or feed any of our local wildlife.


To the east... the historic Colorado mountain town of Morrison is a 10-min drive down winding Bear Creek Canyon. Its Main Street is filled with restaurants, quaint shops & antiques. Morrison is most well-known as the home to RED ROCKS PARK & AMPHITHEATRE, the only naturally-occurring, acoustically perfect amphitheater in the world! But, if you think Red Rocks is just a beautiful place to see a concert, think again! It encompasses hundreds of acres of mule deer, dinosaur remains, pine trees and prairie dogs, geological formations and fabulous vistas. Red Rocks offers guided tours, hiking, biking and a summer concert series. The fitness scene here rocks, and every morning you'll see yogis doing downward dog on stage, CrossFit enthusiasts frog-jumping the steps, or folks walking up/down the 69 bench seats at 6400 feet elevation.

Morrison also boasts The Fort, a high-end, critically lauded wild-game restaurant which is a replica of Bent's Old Fort, which was an 1840s adobe fur trading post.


To the west... charming, historic “downtown” Evergreen is a quick 13-min drive. Settled in 1859, it retains much of its old west charm. Dining options are aplenty as well as wonderful & unique shopping, music, galleries & nightlife.

Evergreen Lake offers a day's worth of activities, in any season. In winter, there's skating, ice fishing & cross-country skiing. The lake was voted one of the “top 10 most beautiful skating rinks in the world" by CNN. 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. There's also a music festival, w/ free music on Wed. nights.

The Red Rocks Retreat was UNREAL! This was my first time visiting CO, and I am absolutely in love. Bryan was an amazing host, and extremely communicative to ensure we enjoyed our stay and had everything we needed. The pictures are 100% what you get - extremely clean and beautiful. I recommend this house to anyone looking for a quiet getaway in the CO foothills. I can’t wait to visit again!

The chic chalet in Idledale is exactly that: well appointed by intelligent hosts, tastefully decorated by a creative owner, a conventient location for a getaway in the Colorado foothills. Great views of layers of foothills, moon rising, garden of wildflowers, intelligently designed interior space. Thoughtful welcoming touches provided by the hosts.

We loved our time at Casita at the Red Rocks, Lottie & Bryan were GREAT hosts! They were quick to respond to any questions and set up a welcome packet for us with information & fresh flowers. It was the perfect location for what we were looking for-- only being 20 min or less from a variety of trailheads. One of the reasons we chose this guesthouse was for the kitchen, and it did not disappoint. The gas stove was so nice to use and the dishes & cookware looked brand new. The aesthetics of the guesthouse made it the most pleasant place to be in and wake up to. I appreciated the carefully curated color scheme and the art on the wall made it even warmer. I wish we would have been able to use the patio & firepit but the weather and our schedule did not make it possible. It, however, also made the view to the mountains that much more beautiful. The washer & dryer were great, too! The washer can hold a ton of clothes, which was helpful when we needed to wash our hiking clothes mid-week. We also enjoyed a couple games of Yahtzee and there were a few other game options available. Great experience, thanks Lottie & Bryan!

Outstanding hospitality and great accommodations. Loved the layout of the place, the fully equipped kitchen and the very comfortable bed. And can you believe it, fluffy bathrobes waited for us in the the bathroom. We had all the comfort of home plus a backyard to relax and enjoy the view of the Colorado mountains. A definite booking for future visits to the Denver area, especially if attending an event at the Red Rocks amphitheatre.

Hi Yonat & Ilan! Thanks for staying at the Casita. After such a long trip, we are so glad you found the guesthouse to be comfortable. And, we're glad you were able to attend a show at Red Rocks... the proximity really cannot be beat! We wish you safe travels.

This guesthouse is simply dreamy. It's location in the mountains makes it the perfect scenic oasis. I spent a cozy snowy weekend there. When I travel, I want where I stay to be therapeutic, so that I return home feeling refreshed and energized. I felt that way after just 2 days here. The kitchen was updated and has everything you could ask for - clearly done by someone who loves to cook. The towels are plush. Everything is sparkling clean. There's a beautiful view of the mountains from the bathroom. I slept better than I had in months, woke up ready to greet the day, and could have stayed cozy in the house all weekend long. This would be a wonderful getaway destination at any time of the year. I hope to return and experience it in springtime or summer, too, when I can take a cup of coffee outside in my barefeet and enjoy the beautiful views.
