Frequently asked questions
What is coliving, I’ve never heard of it?
Imagine the concept of co-working, but for living. coliving is an internationally accepted and tested concept of living where residents take advantage of the economies of sharing. Many variations of coliving spaces exist in North America and abroad. While each varies a little, the overall concept is the same.
Coliving sounds interesting. Is the mtn hive coliving really for the mountains?
That’s right. Proposed in Edwards, the mtn hive takes the widely accepted and international concept of coliving and applies it to the unique needs of Eagle County’s mountain resort residents. For example, most coliving spaces probably don’t have a specific place to store your skis or snowboard, but the mtn hive will.
What is the difference between the mtn hive and other traditional Eagle County living arrangements??
The mtn hive provides fully furnished private units with ample access to shared amenities and common spaces such as: a fitness center with classes, bike and ski storage with tuning spaces, curated lounges, a mini market, shared gourmet kitchens, a laundromat, and coworking nooks; all included in rent. Most places in the Valley these amenities wouldn’t be available or would come at an additional fee.
Edwards is centralized in Eagle County, has great walkability and bikeability and nearly everything residents could want within its core, including a community college, grocery store, restaurants, shops, etc. It’s also near I-70, US Highway 6 and Eagle County public transit stops.
What services and amenities are included for residents?
Lots. They include onsite gym, laundry, included WIFI and utilities, ski and snowboard and bike storage, available storage lockers for an additional fee, onsite market, coffee, tea, basic cooking supplies, fully furnished units, TVs, lounge space, etc. All for the price of rent.
Can I get by without a car?
Absolutely! The mtn hive will be located just off the Eagle County bus route in Edwards. Another planned transportation solution is to include shuttles to major business and recreational hubs. A bike sharing program for residents is also in the works. Last but not least, the Edwards community is very walkable with most things residents will need are available within a five-minute walk. No car, no sweat!
Will parking be available if I want to have a car or have a guest visit?
Yes. Parking will be available to residents for an additional monthly fee. Guest parking will be available free of charge.
Who takes care of cleaning common areas?
The mtn hive isn’t grandma’s house. If you make a mess clean it up. But if your neighbor leaves a mess, don’t worry, all common areas will be cleaned daily by mtn hive staff.
What are the micro-units like?
In a word…awesome! Three unit types will be offered completely furnished and move in ready. All units will include a full or queen sized bed, a bathroom, sink, refrigerator/freezer, a microwave, and built-in closets designed to maximize cubic feet of storage.
Can couples live at the mtn hive?
Yes! Couples and singles are welcome at the mtn hive. Units are priced for one person, with a small fee for a second occupant.
How about roommates?
Sorry. The mtn hive is not configured to support roommates, as each unit is furnished with one full or queen bed.
Can my pets move in, too?
We love pets, but unfortunately can’t accommodate them at the mtn hive at this time.
Where can I put my stuff (bike, skis, kayak, etc)?
We love gear, too. We’ve got you covered. Additional spaces will be available for bikes, SUP boards, kayaks, etc. and ski and snowboard storage will be provided in each micro-unit. There will also be places to tune bikes and skis onsite.
Housing is tough in Eagle County, is this a better solution to traditional rentals?
We think so, there is a lot of bang for the buck at the mtn hive and many of the amenities and things that would be additions to a monthly budget are included in rent. Not to mention you don’t need to buy furniture or any other home supplies. It’s also a great way to meet people who love mountain living as much as you do. With the current lack of studio and one-bedroom options, we think this will be a great addition to the community.
