Silver Rush Inn and Cloud City Victorian Cottage offer an affordable way to enjoy a Rocky Mountain vacation in historic Leadville, Colorado. These Victorian style rental houses were built in the late 1800s during the mining boom in Leadville over a century ago. The town is surrounded by the mountains on all sides, and boasts the title of the highest incorporated town in the United States at 10,200 ft above sea level. It's a 2-hour drive from Denver, 30 minutes to Copper Mountain, 45 minutes to Vail and Beaver Creek, and about an hour from Aspen during the summer. And, best of all, it's only 20 minutes to quaint Ski Cooper in the winter.
Leadville was ranked by Men's Journal as "Best Adventure Mecca" for its close proximity to so many alpine activites all year round. In plain view from downtown Leadville, and our vacation rentals, are Mt. Elbert and Mt. Massive, Colorado's 2 highest peaks, each over 14,000 ft. There is always something to do, whether it's playing in the mountains, or delving into the region's rich and varied history. For the outdoor enthusiast there are: rafting, hiking, biking, fishing, skiing, snowmobiling, 4-wheeling, exploring ghost towns, and even panning for gold. And for those who like to relax while on vacation there is always: antiquing, visiting historic homes, touring old mines, riding the narrow gauge train, windowshopping downtown, and strolling the Mineral Belt Trail. There is always something to do in Leadville!
