This home is located on 40 acres in a gated community providing security and seclusion. 2 master suites with queen size beds and 5 piece bathrooms, 2 rooms with full beds and a full bath, 2 living areas with gas fireplaces, fully functional kitchen and laundry room.
Breathe in the clean, crisp mountain air as you take in the views in the canyon that lies before you. Maybe you'll see the herd of big horn sheep famous for visiting, the majestic elk that travel through the meadow or the deer who frequent the stream. A large wrap around deck allows you to sit for hours reading, visiting or enjoying your coffee. Serene, peaceful and rejuvenating.
Stunning views are captured looking out of the 18 windows. Relax in the peacefulness provided by the master suite loft while enjoying the blue sky, canyon walls and ancient rock out-croppings, or unwind and soak in the jetted tub.
If you are ready to interact with Colorado, enjoy hiking on the 40 acres, take the 15 minute trip to low-stakes gambling in the town of Cripple Creek, visiting Old West museums, touring the Molly Kathleen Gold Mine and experiencing the truly breathtaking views of three of Colorado's mountain ranges. A melodrama at the Butte Opera House will cap off your experience.
Skiing awaits 90 minutes away at Breckenridge or Monarch.
25 minutes to Woodland park, the City Above the Clouds and enjoy high-altitude golfing, the Dinosaur Museum for children of all ages, craft and art shows, antique shops, western clothing stores, movie theater, super-markets, gift shops and restaurants..
Continue north on highway 67 to gold-medal fishing on the South Platte.
Go west to Eleven Mile Canyon for fishing or boating or to Buena Vista for white water rafting and zip-lining. You've got to see the stunning Continental Divide on the way.

Our family can't get enough of the beautiful sites throughout Colorado. We really enjoy hiking, camping and traveling the state to see what each town has to offer.
We built this mountain getaway in the heart of a majestic canyon to experience true Colorado living. Little did we know the peaceful, breathtakingly beautiful surroundings would prove to be a little patch of Heaven on earth.
During your stay, we really hope you get to see some of the wildlife Colorado is famous for. Our very favorite is the herd of Big Horn Sheep that call this canyon home!
