Overview

About the property

Travel back in time to this renovated 1906 home whose floors have been restored to original hardwood, ceilings repurposed to the walls, and a library filled with antique treasures & best sellers! This house is not to be missed thanks to its privacy fence made out of doors and windows! A Creede must-see! Within walking distance of everything in this miner's town - Creede Rep, Arp's, Rare Things, Tommyknocker's, and the cliffs.

In remodeling the home, we tried to repurpose everything we could! One private bedroom has it's own separate entrance. There is also a private bedroom with twin bed, and one pull out couch in the library. The library also has it's own entrance and has hundreds of books for you to peruse. The pull out couch easily accommodates two adults.

For internet access, we have fiber in our house for a full 100 meg of internet service. Easily video conference to anywhere in the world! Plus iTV. There is a a smoker and BBQ grill for cooking outside. Love movie trivia? The Fence House was a favorite of John Wayne.

At the Fence House, you'll have quick access to Main Street, the beautiful cliffs, friendly neighbors! Walk to anywhere in town! Hike trails that start practically in our backyard!

Not My Favorite Rental Experience

  • 1 of 5

From the site photos I thought this would be a cute place today. For several reasons we were not happy with this experience:

1) After we paid we got an email about not wearing shoes in the house. However, the floor was rough and unfinished in places and a large chunk of it was missing at the back entrance. This would not have felt good on sock or bare feet!

2) On arrival, the kitchen and bathroom did not look very clean, and smelled like a gas leak. We opened windows and the gas smell was a little better.

3) There was no room for any of our items because of all the owners items on the counters and in the small bathroom. And while the shower was relatively new and nice and big, there were so many of the owners items in it that we had to move stuff to use our items.

I would not recommend this place for anyone who is a neat/clean freak. Definitely a rustic experience.

I personally think we should get at least a 1/3 refund of our payment. I was queasy from the gas the entire stay. Live and learn. The owners seem to be really nice folks, so I am sorry to have to review this, but want to be sure other guests get the real story.

Fence House in Creede

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Creede at the Fence House as it was very quiet and relaxing. They roll up the sidewalks at about sundown. The house was rustic, but comfortable. Plenty of books to read. We had never rented a place like this where somebody actually lives there as the shelves were full of food and there were clothes in the closets. Thought we might have wandered into the wrong house. But , as they say, "all's well that ends well". Have no regrets.

Great Location! Very cute and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

This home is in walking distance to everything downtown. It was clean and extremely cute! The back yard was a wonderful space to spend the evening. From location to the comfort of the home, I would recommend this to anyone.
