The front door has an electric door handle with a keypad. No smoking inside the home. You may smoke outside. No pets inside the home. If you use the hot tub please be careful with the cover, use two people to remove and replace the cover. Also put the rock back on the cover when not in use so the wind doesn't bow the cover off. The Hot Tub temp is set to 104 degrees. Please don't try to reset the temp as sometimes it will change the mode its in and will let it cool to 80 if its not checked. With the top off, people in it, on high jets, and cold air temps it will cool down. It only heats the water on low jets. Children should be accompanied by an adult.

As trash becomes full during your stay please empty and set inside garage in the black trashcan.
My wife and I moved to Idaho Springs for the small town privacy and fantastic Colorado Rocky Mountains. We have two boys and they absolutely love it here. It is just the right distance between Denver and everything else we enjoy about Colorado. We love to snowboard, mountain bike, hike, and the general wake up for a cup of coffee to look at the mountains. We hope you enjoy it here as much as we do!
