Why Scott Schaefer chose Idaho Springs
The Little Florence has a 100 year history. The Little Florence was staked as a mining claim in the gold rush days of Colorado History. The property has a unique and beautiful location close to most everything that's fun to do in the Colorado Front Range Mountains and yet you feel like your in wilderness. (just 3 miles from I70) What an amazing experience and we want to share it with you.
What makes this Cabin unique
Amazing views of Mount Evans and the continental Divide. Wild animal viewing. Elk, Deer, Moose and Bears. You might even see a Mountain Lion if your lucky. The property is also close to the Casinos in Black Hawk and Central City. Hot Springs Pools at Indian Springs Resort just minutes away. Head up I70 to the Ski areas for a day on the slopes then back to the cabin just minutes away.

Lovely property for a girl’s weekend! Highly recommended!!!
Beautiful, rustic setting
Cute cabin, the view of the mountains and surrounding trees was wonderful. We had a great stay!
The property and surrounding area was perfect, exactly what we were looking for
We had a great time at the property. I think our only issues were GPS issues. Take Fall River road when you go up here and the road to get to house is further up than where GPS tells you the house is. The GPS was a quick fix and just being aware of where we were, other than that it was fantastic. I think I could sit in that living room all day with those views, and would love to come back in the fall.
Really amazing views, wonderful new cabin, pool table...this place was awesome! I highly recommend staying here.
Everything about this trip was amazing. We had a group of 6 and everyone slept comfortably. The cabin/house is decorated very beautifully, with excellent amenities and the location couldn't be better. You are required to take some gravel roads with some steep slopes so I could definitely see how this could be treacherous in the winter. Scott was very kind and helpful throughout our stay. The only suggestion I have that could have made this stay better is having a few additional household items available for the guests such as tin foil, dish towels, and a broom. Otherwise, this was a perfect stay, we had beautiful weather and enjoyed plenty of hiking and white water rafting, which is only 20 minutes away! Thank you Scott!!
Sorry about the tin foil. I guess we missed on that one. As for the dish towels, that's head scratcher. They are in the kitchen drawer next to the fridge. The broom and dustpan are down stairs in the utility room. I will make a note of those two in the Home Book. We are always trying to make everyone's stay a little better with feedback. And I know our roads look steep to those of you coming from elsewhere, but they are well maintained in the winter and are well traveled!
Our first time going to the mountains and firs time renting a cabin it was AMAZING!! Great view location its great houce its beyond beautiful over all we had such a great time there 100% recomended!!
