    Description

    We are a family of four, Geoffrey (50), Kristal (48), and two kids ages 13 and 145We live in a beautiful mountain town, Leadville, Colorado. We love to travel and love to have guests. We recently completed a trip around the world. We were hosted by many wonderful people and now want to open our house to travelers. There are endless hiking and biking trails in our area and anyone looking to be in a beautiful mountain environment will not be disappointed.

    Please be advised that we live at 10,200 feet. Some people really struggle with the altitude.

    We are looking for help with painting interior and ceilings, installing laminate flooring, deep cleaning the house, Building a shed (priority this summer), building a wood shelter, building a small deck with swing chairs, a mosaic project on a concrete wall (summer) and help with e-commerce sites and a never ending honey-do list. We are looking for someone who will happily help for 4.5 hours per day. When you contact us, please let us know what you would like to help with.

    Because the help we need is physical and the activities we do are adventurous, personal health insurance is required.

    We have two kids ages 13 and 15, so it only makes sense to join us, if you like kids/teens. We would not be the right fit for anyone wanting a "night life" or party scene.

    Please note that we have a cat.

    It would be best to have your own car, as there is very limited public transportation.

    We look forward to hearing your travel story and sharing our beautiful area with you.

    We live in a beautiful small mountain town in Colorado. Our area is known for endless hiking and biking trails. Our town has a long history in mining. We live within walking distance to main street, cafes, small museums and parks. There are hiking, biking and ski trails in every direction. We also have many lakes and rivers to enjoy. We are within a 45 minutes from Vail, Breckinridge, Keystone and Copper Mountain ski areas. Our town looks out over the two highest mountains in Colorado (Mt. Elbert and Mt. Massive). There are many Colorado 14ners around us and the Colorado Trail is nearby.
    We are a family that has traveled a lot and we enjoy sharing our travel stories and listening to other's stories.

    We will provide simple breakfast and lunch items (cereal, toast, coffee, bread, cheese, peanut butter, crackers, fruit and vegetables) that you will make on your own. I will make dinner for everyone each night and we will share in the clean-up.
