About Kitty Gallas
Originally from Germany, we fell in love with Evergreen and felt at home, as soon as we visited this quaint and energetic cowboy town with its many Swiss inspired buildings, it's beautiful mountain views and crystal clear lake in the center of town. As avid travelers we have enjoyed meeting people all over the world, staying in hostels and B&B's. Eager to share this beautiful gem of a mountain home, as well as a love of outdoor sports, we are excited to share our toys, kayaks, snowshoes and welcome guests to experience the joy of mountain living. Having lived in ,and extensively remodeled this home for the past 14 yrs., we built the studio addition to provide family and guests with totally private quarters Recently retired and indulging in gardening, water skiing, kayaking, bike riding, we would be happy to provide you with information about available outdoor activities and all that this beautiful area has to offer. "Play in the sunshine, swim in the sea, drink the wild air" is our motto
Kitty Gallas purchased this Apartment in 2000
Why Kitty Gallas chose Evergreen Meadows
This quiet and private retreat provides the tranquility that restores the soul with the sounds of water features, and the songs of birds. Frequent visitors who enjoy our hospitality, are friendly foxes, who built their den at the edge of the paved driveway. Elk and deer, also call this property home, and thoroughly enjoy munching on the newly planted flowers, bushes and trees seemingly just for their enjoyment. An easy Denver commute via I-70 or Hyw. 285, makes this an ideal location for exploring what Denver has to offer an is only a 30 min. drive away. Red Rocks for Concerts or museums and cultural activities. Gambling Casinos in Black Hawk are only abut a 40 min. drive up the mountain. Easy access, even in winter, as the house is located on a publicly maintained road and only about 1/2 mile from the main highway, and the best restaurant in town.
What makes this Apartment unique
On warm days, in the morning take your latte' (Coffee grinder/cappuccino maker in kitchenette)or coffee out on the deck or into the private forest across the street and watch the sunrise over the mountains. In summer and fall, my vegetable garden, right outside the studio's back deck, is abundant with spinach, lettuce, kale, radishes, beans, squash, beets and carrots. Help yourself and make a healthy salad for lunch, then take the kayaks out to Evergreen Lake for a little exercise . and refreshing paddle, or take a stroll and feed the ducks. The lake is stocked with trout, so bring your fishing pole, or golf on the public golf course which borders the lake. There are 3 kayaks available for your use Only 30 minutes from Red Rocks ampitheater. Only 1/2 mile down the road is Evergreen's best restaurant "Marshdale Bistro" also a small grocery store inside the gas station for emergency supplies. 2 Large Grocery chains within 10 minute drive. In the winter, the local sledding hill is just a mile from the house, (plenty of sleds and inner-tubes available for your use) or take the snow shoes for a hike. If you like to ski, pick up the ski bus in El Rancho to Copper Mountain or Vail, or avoid the crowds and learn to ski or snowboards at Evergreen's local ski area. When you return, relax with a glass of wine and watch the sunset over the mountains, then take a relaxing steam bath before bed, and call it a perfect Colorado day.

The space was perfect for my husband and I. The location was perfect and the scene was beautiful. Everything was exactly as stated and easy to get to without the crazy city traffic. Thank you Kitty
We had an awesome time during our visit to Evergreen Meadows and Kitty was a great host. She has a wonderful home with spectacular views and provided us with lots of information on things to do and places to eat. If we ever decide to go back to Colorado, this will definitely be the place we'll stay!
Great location, cozy studio with great views. Kitty has thought of everything we could have possibly needed. She had great suggestions for things to do and trails for us to hike. She was extremely helpful and friendly. Loved every minute of our stay. We will definitely be back
