In warm weather, you will enjoy this magnificent outdoor setting by relaxing on the 1500 sq.ft. bi-level wrap-around deck, which overlooks the creek. From this location at 9200 ft. altitude, there is easy access from the property to miles of hiking through pristine forest and alpine meadows and great access to multiple ski resorts.
This smartly remodeled home can accommodate up to 12 guests. The master bedroom with a king size bed has a private full bath and double doors out to the deck. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and the third bedroom has a day bed (with an extra pull-out mattress). These two bedrooms have access to the second full bath.

The living room is accentuated by a soapstone wood stove and rustic mantel. Large picture windows bring the lovely outside setting into the home.
Though seemingly remote, this home is a 10 minute drive from Interstate 70, the major east/west highway through Colorado. It is 45 minutes from downtown Denver, where you can enjoy all the amenities of a large city, including four major league sports, museums, fine dining, theatre, and a variety of entertainment venues. Yet you are also within 15 minutes of three small mountain communities - Georgetown with its Georgetown Loop Scenic Railroad tour, Idaho Springs with its hot springs resort, and Empire where you'll enjoy the Peck House Hotel and Restaurant, established in 1862. Skiing is within easy access. Loveland, on the Continental Divide is a half hour drive. Winter Park, a premier ski resort and town, offers outdoor activities year round. Summit County, where you will find the best skiing in Colorado, is an hour drive. Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, and Keystone provide a variety of skiing adventures as well as small mountain town charm, boutique shopping and factory outlet stores. Central City and Black Hawk, is Colorado's gambling mecca. While some may enjoy a performance at the Central City Opera House, others might take a gold mine tour.
If you are an outdoor enthusiast, you will be enthralled by the opportunities for hiking, biking, rafting, climbing, fishing, golfing, and ATVing.

Review submitted: December 31, 2013   Date of arrival: December 23, 2013

My family had a good time at Russ's home. We had six adults and three children (2 that were 1 year and under). We appreciated the big kitchen and nice dining room plus the family room was very adequate. Beautiful scenery! Nice place to get away. Thanks, Russ

Review #[123345] Review Title

We recently spent 3 nights / 4 days at this property and had a blast! We have 11 in total, 7 adults and 4 children ranging from 2 - 12 and they all had a great time. The setting was perfect for what we were wanting - seclusion, stream, mountains and wildlife. The owner was very accommodating and the property was very comfortable. We were extremely satisfied and highly recommend it to others!

We just finished a 1 week stay at Heavenly Gates.Truly a secluded home away form home. It was everything we had hoped for. The description of the property was perfect. The stream running through the property was wonderful, we woke up each morning listening to it with our morning coffee and it started the day of perfectly. Russ was great to work with and answered all our questions before we came and left his cell phone number if we needed him. There is ample shopping in Idaho Springs, and many close attractions to visit. We spend alot of time fishing at the nearby lakes and also enjoyed the Georgetown train and mine ride.I would definately recommend this property. It was well equiped and stocked with the essential including a waher and dryer. We will surely stay here again.
Thanks Russ for the opportunity to spend time in you wonderful retreat.
