Eben is a professional skier, and I am a yoga instructor, and together we coach the Loveland All-Mountain Freeride Team. We have two amazing sons and a third babe due to arrive Fall of 2018!
Darcee Mond purchased this Cottage in 2009
Why Darcee Mond chose Silver Plume
About eight years ago we decided to follow our hearts and move to the mountains that we love so much. Silver Plume, with it's laid back charm and easy access to all, is a wonderful home base. When the run-down cabin next door to our house came up for sale our parent's helped us restore it into a vacation home and rental. Gail and Joe - Eben's parents - are home builders, antique-rs and interior decorating masters. Together we gutted, insulated, roofed, straightened, cleaned, added, floored, painted and decorated the cabin and now we want to share it with others who love the mountains too!
What makes this Cottage unique
The mountains have so much to offer. The beauty, wildlife, wildness, skiing, back country touring, hiking, snowshoeing and biking are a few of our favorites. We've had the pleasure of seeing many Big Horn Sheep, Mountain Goats, a few brown bear, a couple moose and even one Lynx in our back yard, plus the area is known for the hummingbird migration. The hiking is fantastic, as are the views, and the cottage abuts National Forest. Georgetown is less than a five minute drive, Summit County is just twenty minutes, and Denver is only an hour away, each offering great restaurants and shopping. World class skiing is a ten minute drive and you will receive a free pass to Loveland Ski Area to use during your stay at Sunrise Peak Guest Cottage.

If you are looking for a relaxing , peaceful time in an old mining town in the Colorado Rockies, this place is for you. The home was built over a hundred years ago and filled with antiques to make it look like it was back in the late 1880's. Very clean and comfortable with all the modern conveniences. All the neighbors were very friendly. The front porch with comfortable chairs and the back patio were a favorite for drinking coffee in the mornings. Lots of places to visit in the summer. We came up to escape the Texas summer heat and the weather was perfect! We loved our stay and will be back again!
This was a very cute, well maintained property.
Unique place to stay
If you are looking for that out of the way place from Denver and other big areas this is the place. Close to lots of places west of Denver and beyond. The local coffee house and bar are the best! Walking distance to Georgetown railroad loop. Owner was very nice and accommodating. Place was small but perfect for our needs. Silver Plume is the place to be to experience old Colorado.
Perfect base camp
Cute house. Silver Plume was a good central location for our planned adventures. House was better than the pictures. Clean, plenty of space. Loved the patio.
