Why Debbie Gaudin chose Cripple Creek
We fell in love with this place when we saw the beautiful house tucked away in a valley with over 40 acres of aspen, blue spruce and open meadows. We enjoy the majestic views of the mountains, the serenity of overlooking Skaguay Reservoir and hiking in one of the prettiest valleys along Beaver Creek. The many custom features of the house were another attraction from the gourmet kitchen, to the spacious living areas, the huge windows and wide wrap around deck for relaxing outdoors.
What makes this house unique
The large wrap around deck affords expansive views of the mountains and lake. At 9,100’ elevation the house is wonderfully comfortable with gentle breezes and low humidity. The house is situated among the aspens with no other houses in view from the front deck which gives the place of sense of calm and serene seclusion. In the mood for a peaceful and quiet place to stay? Then this is the setting. Within walking distance of the house is Skaguay Reservoir and Beaver Creek, which are excellent for fly fishing for trout. There is canoeing and boating on Skaguay Reservoir and hiking, backpacking and camping in one of the prettiest valleys along Beaver Creek. Nearby are lots of activities from gold mine tours, hiking and mountain biking at Mueller State Park (over 5,000 acres of parkland) and horseback riding, exploring scenic byways and historic gold mine towns, white water rafting the Arkansas River, antiquing, shopping and more. The property is only about an hour and fifteen minutes southwest of Colorado Springs.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Aspen Lakehouse in Victor, Colorado (west of Colorado Springs) is the most beautiful "home away from home" you can find! The peaceful, serene surroundings of the evergreens, aspens, pine trees, numerous flowers soothes the senses. And then there are those adorable hummingbirds. You have the gorgeous views of the mountains surrounding this area and the refreshing & colorful Skaguay Reservoir. Get ready to wrap yourself with peace, quiet, beauty, R & R, fishing, hiking, exploring...
