Why Molly Ansett chose Idaho Springs
We are thrilled to share our Colorado home with you. We have spent our summers for 18 years in this beautiful home that was designed and built by an architect for himself and his family. We are now ready to share it with others.
What makes this Cabin unique
We have the best view of St. Mary's Glacier and of the nearby mountains that are so much like Switzerland. If you love the natural beauty of healthy trees, mountains and lakes, you will surely enjoy staying in this home. The mountains are within one block and there are three lakes within a half mile of the property. Do you enjoy the beauty and majesty of being in the mountains? Do you like beautiful trees? Do you like a gentle flowing brook? Do you enjoy the gift of privacy and rest? Do you enjoy walking and hiking? Would you enjoy looking at the stars from a beautiful open deck at 10,000 feet altitude? We invite you to enjoy this special experience of life that refreshes and renews body, mind and soul by a week that facilities peace and inspires you to "significantly eliminate hurry."

2nd Time Guest
This was the 2nd time we stayed at The Dwelling Place and it was just as much fun as the first! The home is beautiful and clean and the view is priceless! The home is well stocked and the hot tub is perfect after a day of hiking St Mary’s glacier. We appreciate how close Idaho Springs is to Boulder and other fun cities. Our 7 nights here was so relaxing and fun! We hope to be back for a third visit.
Perfect Family Getaway
Spent a week with the kids on what will likely be our last "family vacation" for a while: awesome views, plenty of room and the hot tub was a welcome respite after a full day of rafting, horseback riding and/or hiking.
The absence of wifi was the only drawback, although it was fully disclosed in the listing profile.
Serene mountain getaway
This place is beautiful, everything you need for a peaceful mountain vacation.
This home has one of the best locations ever! There are wonderful views from practically every room - even the upstairs bathroom has 2 windows - one with mountain views and the other when you open the window, you can hear the creek which runs along the side of the driveway. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The drive from Idaho Springs to the house gets rather long, so plan your trips to town accordingly, but the hot tub at the end of the night is so great on sore muscles after a day of hiking. The absolute highlight of our stay was a moose that came down the mountain, crossed the driveway and calmly walked around the house and deck!! This occurred on the 4th of July, which was way better than any fireworks we've ever seen!! We would highly recommend this home to anyone!
Awesome Mountain View!
Our stay was wonderful. The house was a perfect location. We had such a great time. The St. Mary Glaciers was beautiful.
We're so glad you all enjoyed your stay! Cheers,
Great family vacation!!
This was our first trip to Colorado and we spent an entire week here! The views were amazing! The sound of the stream running along the driveway combined with the peaceful outdoors felt like being at a spa! We were about two hours from everything we wanted to do (Royal Gorge, Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods and Rocky Mountain National Park). It was nice to relax here at the end of each day. The hike to St. Mary’s Glacier is a must do...absolutely beautiful! Idaho Springs has some cute shops....we spent an afternoon there just exploring. Thanks for a great stay!!
