Lake City House Rental Photos and Description

Congratulations! You have hit the Jackpot!
The Jackson's Cabin on the Alpine Loop Scenic Byway, joyfully dubbed 'Jackpot', is indeed a surprising treasure in the San Juan Mountains of southwest Colorado near Lake City.
This cozy getaway reflects yesteryear's aesthetic yet has all the modern amenities for today. It is arranged to give several couples their 'space'' with two living areas, two dining areas, and two fabulous porches. The 'Round Table' with massive lazy-susan seats 8; 'Mama's Walnut Table' seats 8; and the old-time saloon bar seats 4. Sleeping arrangements have 2 queens, 2 full and a futon sofa sleeper is in one living area. Lots of bathrooms and a laundry room make staying a while easy. A pellet stove and wood fireplace with hand-carved mantle supplements the electric heat. Original art adorn the walls.
Nestled against a cliff at the base of Sunshine Peak (14,001') and directly on the 65 mile Alpine Loop Backcountry Byway, it is secluded but has year-round access including winter snowplowing making it perfect for ATV trekking and off-season retreats. It is only 15 minutes to the Redcloud/Sunshine trailhead, 5 minutes to Cataract and Cuba trailheads and 38 minutes to beautiful American Basin. Town is 25 minutes away, or travel over the pass to Ouray and Silverton for the day.
A 10-minute hike to the back of the 8-acre property reveals a 60' tall seasonal waterfall and an amazing 3-mile vista of the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River where elk, mule deer and moose frolic. Enjoy a high altitude wine and cheese picnic!
The location is ideal for hunters in Unit 66. The horse barn rents for an additional fee if bringing horses. Otherwise, store your 4 WD toys in the barn! The second level studio in the barn is a haven for artists and fly tiers.
Jackpot is an ATV-ers perfect launch pad...just drive right off the property into your mountain adventure, walk the valley to view wildlife and 300' Sunshine Falls, or sit on the porch and enjoy the rainbows, deer and moose.
