Why Bob Thorniley chose Alton
We owned a beautiful log cabin in the surrounding area before discovering this amazing mountain forrest property. It is a rare find to come across mountain property which has a combination of hills and level areas suitable for horses. The moment we walked the land we fell in love. Our family took delight in spending the next 2 years clearing the nearly 6 acres of underbrush and thinning the pines and cedar trees. In preparation of building the main house we decided to build the barn with a living area above which would serve as a guest house. After moving into the guest house we relished the cozy abode so much that we decided to forgo building the main house! We are confident you too will appreciate this gorgeous area.
Even after so many years, we still treasure the opportunity to watch the wildlife on the property. Several hundred feet below the property there is a meadow on the adjacent ranch which the Elk come out in the evenings to feed and play in the pond. The Owner of the Ranch is quite the conservationist and has planted hay fields solely for the benefit of the Deer and Elk.
What makes this barn unique
This wonderfully diverse area offers hundreds of miles of ATV and snowmobile trails. The surrounding Parks have hiking trails which are some of the most stunning in the world. Guided Horse rides, ATV, and Snowmobiles rentals are available minutes away. Be sure to hike the deer trail in the deep woods on the hillside of the property! You'll find some gorgeous rock formations.
