Idaho Springs Accommodations

Idaho Springs is located in Clear Creek Canyon, in the mountains upstream from Golden, some thirty miles west of Denver. The main draw of Idaho Springs is the breathtaking scenery of the Rockies making this an ideal destination for a chalet rental accommodation.

The highest paved road in North America heads south of town to the top of Mount Evans, one of Colorado's tallest mountains. Idaho Springs is also near Golden Gate State Park with stunning views of the continental divide, and within an hour's drive of six of the state's most famous ski resorts and a multitude of vacation rental accommodations.

The birthplace of the Rocky Mountain Gold Rush, Idaho Springs is a well-preserved mining town that today has become a popular tourist spot offering unique vacation rental accommodation such as condo rentals, chalet rentals, cottages and private-owned villas. It’s a tiny town surrounded by incredible scenery. In the summer, many raft trips depart from the area as snowmelt turns the rivers into white-water adventures.

Sightseeing opportunities in Idaho Springs are plentiful and diverse. Tourist attractions include museums and art galleries, amusement parks, National and State Parks, historical places, sporting events and festivals. If attractions aren't what you're looking for you can spend a day taking a scenic drive on one of the Idaho Springs area's beautiful byways, back-ways, or historical routes exploring the diverse wildlife and scenery.

Take a leisurely walk from your chalet rental or condo rental to an authentic nineteenth-century Main Street with many historic buildings that have been preserved and for a special treat visit the local hot springs developed in 1859 and known for its curative powers. There are plenty of quality restaurants in Idaho Springs, including a popular brewpub. All are affordable including area vacation home rental lodging and unique shopping.

The Central City Opera House continues to draw international applause with classic to contemporary performances each summer. Hoping to strike it rich, plan a visit to Colorado’s mini Western-style Las Vegas for some nightlife action. The canyon-cradled hamlets of Black Hawk and Central City are just one mile apart and are lined with gambling saloons, historic storefronts.

Whatever the season, vacation rentals such as chalet rentals, condo rentals, cabins, villas, or full home rentals make the perfect home away from home for your mountain-town getaway. Take advantage of the space, value and amenities that vacation home rentals provide and hotels just can't match. Owner Direct Vacation Rentals makes it easier than ever to find the perfect accommodations for every type of travel. Reserve your Colorado vacation home rental today!
