The Adobe at the Dream Stream Retreat on Eleven Mile Reservoir in South Park is an elegant and spacious pueblo-style home situated on a promontory overlooking Witcher's Cove in Eleven Mile Reservoir with spectacular views of water, sky and snow capped peaks. The Adobe has everything you need for a perfect vacation, honeymoon, fishing group, quiet retreat or a holiday with family you'll always remember. The Adobe comes with all the amenities: Satellite TV with HD theater system, WI-FI, gas log Kiva fireplace, master-bath (whirlpool tub & separate shower), and a fully equipped gourmet country kitchen. The large game room features a Brunswick pool table, poker table, ping pong table and dart board. Leave your cell phone and office behind; the land line phone allows for unlimited local and long distance calls. Like to grill? We have three outdoor grilling options – fire pit with grill, gas grill, and a classic Weber. Bring your boat, ATV, snowmobile, or horse trailer; our 3 car garage has plenty of room to keep the vehicles out of the elements, and we have a fenced pasture for a horse or two. There is a boat ramp in Witcher's Cove.
Our private gated 35 acres lies on a peninsula which is surrounded on three sides by Eleven Mile Reservoir. We have our own private gate access to a rarely used part of the State Park. Just out the door you can walk to the water try your fishing skills on our own private stocked pond, or stalk trophy trout, kayak, bike and hike in the Park. Or simply relax and take in the panorama of the water, South Park, the Rockies and the Colorado skies.
For those who fish there is probably more public access water within 45 minutes than any other location in Colorado. Besides the Dream Stream and Eleven Mile Reservoir in fifteen minutes is Spinney Reservoir and the upper S. Platte River, twenty minutes you can drive to Eleven Mile Canyon and additional Gold Medal trout water. Within 45 minutes you can access Antero Reservoir, more Gold Medal rivers and streams including the Arkansas River. Cheeseman Canyon and other sections the South Platte and Tarryall Creek.
Like to hjke, bike? National Forest access trails are within 10 minutes and within an hour there are several 14,000 foot peaks.
Skiing at Breckenridge in Summit County is 1 1/2 hrs drive w/o the night mare of I-70 traffic jams.
Or maybe you want the thrill of river rafting. The Royal Gorge or the Arkansas River near Buena Vista is one hour away.
Within 15 minutes is the old gold mining town of Guffey with two western style restaurants and bars with live music and a breakfast and lunch cafe with WiFi. In 25 minutes you can hike in the Florissant Fossil Nation Monument and see petrified Sequoia Red Woods.
And Black Hawk casinos are 45 minutes away.
Just about everything the Colorado Rockies are renowned for are easily accessed from the Dream Stream Retreat.

Why David Carrick chose Hartsel
Access to the Dream Stream, Eleven Mile Reservoir and State Park with seclusion and expansive 360 degree vistas of water, forests, rock formations and the Rocky Mountains. We are in awe of the views.
What makes this house unique
We can walk out our gate into the State Park down to the reservoir or into the forest in areas of the Park rarely visited. We can fish and hunt on our own property or access the park for the same. We can fish the evenings during the peak season on the Dream Stream when the other anglers have left and have 5.5 miles of river to ourselves. We also have our own stocked trout pond. And the views are spectacular of water, snow capped peaks and expansive Colorado skies and sunsets.
