No matter the season, beauty abounds at Casa Colorado and the surroundings will treat you to dramatic displays as the aspen leaves change color, fresh snow falls, or the gardens bloom once again in the spring.

Winter months find us snowshoeing trails in solitude or taking to the slopes and skiing all day at Eldora Mountain Resort. With local terrain suitable for all levels and only a 15 minute drive on the Peak-to-Peak Highway, resort skiing never felt simpler! Enjoy winter to the maximum knowing that recovery and warmth await you upon returning to the suite. MSR Snowshoes are also available for unlimited use for trekking in the surrounding peaks.

Summer months bring perfect temperatures for hiking and wildflower finding or mushroom hunting. During the warm months, the gardens excel and offer fresh berries, vegetables, and herbs for tasting in your meals. Local shops offer mountain bike rentals for the ambitious. Rafting companies offer day trips out of Idaho Springs, only about 30 minutes drive on the beautiful Peak-to-Peak highway.

Fall offers spectacular transitions at the divide, as you can watch aspen groves quake in new found shades of yellows, oranges and reds. Temperatures remain high yet refreshing as the crispness of fall settles, the remaining garden crops are harvested and create some of the best flavors on the table!

Spring is an exciting time at Casa Colorado, short in transition but dramatic as one day may be blustery with snow and the next showing daffodils and wildflowers awakening. This is the time when seeds are sown and cabin fever kissed goodbye!

The town of Nederland is 15 minutes away, offering a variety of restaurants, shopping, yoga and spa treatments.
