About Nicky O'meara

We are a family of 4. My husband and I grew up in England and moved to the USA in 1992. Our children are teenagers. We live in Denver, CO.

Nicky O'meara purchased this house in 2012

Why Nicky O'meara chose Silverthorne

We bought The Bear's Den as a weekend mountain escape. We use it year round for skiing, hiking and mountain biking. We enjoy the fact that the house has all the comforts of home but still has a rustic, mountain feel.

What makes this house unique

We are within a short drive of 5 ski resorts and have a host of hiking trails just outside the front door.

Beautiful home and location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house for our family ski gathering. It easily accomodated 8 of us. It was just a short drive to the slopes. The home was very welll stocked, especially the kitchen and bathrooms. Washer and dryer were handy too. We were able to spread out and never feel crowded. The hot tub was a favorite amoung the younger crowd. Others in our ski group were within a block, easy walk back and forth. We highly recommend this place and hope to come back in the summer. Nicky is very easy to work with and always responded in short order.
