A Northern Colorado Hideaway is the State’s First Certified Passive House
A company called Off Grid Hideaways specializes in finding and sharing remote escapes across the world where travelers can book memorable getaways. The company features unique rentals that blend luxury with simplicity.
The vacation site offers a variety of places to stay. From cozy beachside cottages to rugged mountain cabins, the handpicked properties are bound to provide unforgettable experiences.
One of these epic off-grid hideaways is located in Northern Colorado and is also the state's first certified passive house.
Passive houses are structures that are energy efficient, comfortable, affordable, and ecological all at the same time. They offer low-impact living, while still having great architectural appeal.
The Colorado Hideaway is located in Masonville. Its official name is the MARTaK House, which is an acronym for the family that owns its surnames. This home embraces a simpler way of living in the heart of the foothills of the Front Range.
The MARTaK House can sleep up to four guests. The interior has an open living concept, with a kitchen, double bedroom, a chill-out room that includes a hammock, and a wet room with a sink, toilet, and sunken shower. There's also an outdoor area to take advantage of.
The home was built using sustainable, fully recyclable, and biodegradable materials. In addition, the remote site maximizes solar gain and natural ventilation. MARTaK is considered to be the most energy-efficient building in Colorado.
An endless amount of adventures are easily accessible from this scenic NoCo location. Horsetooth Reservoir and the Poudre River are just a short drive away, and there are tons of trails nearby. Plus, the hosts have a bicycle and kayak available to borrow.
With no WiFi, cell service, or TV, this Colorado hideaway is the ultimate place to detox from the digital world.
The incredible rental can be booked through the Off Grid Hideaways website.
