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.
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.

We had an amazing time. Then home was fantastic.
We stayed at the Aspen Lake House for 5 nights in July. It was a very beautiful, clean cabin with a gorgeous view from the wrap around porch. It was peaceful and relaxing. The cabin was VERY clean, fully stocked, and an overall great place to vacation. We enjoyed the cool mornings on the porch watching the occasional wildlife walk by. The only reason we gave it a 4 instead of 5 stars is because of the drive to get to the cabin. It is a bumpy dirt road that is about 20 minutes from the main road. That was our only problem with the rental.
Best summer vacation destination for those who live in hot weather seeking a cool weather experience. I loved the hiking, exploring, learning the history of gold mining in the area, and then returning to all the comforts of home. We went grocery shopping on the way and had home cooked meals which made it easy to budget our trip. This is a great place for a home school family vacation and field trip, with enough room to make it a romantic getaway or for any group seeking a quiet place to enjoy nature, beautiful scenery, and room to spread out and relax.
Book it! You will not be disappointed! Serene beauty outside and all the comforts of home inside. If you love the great outdoors during the day but prefer to return to the comforts of home by evening, this beautiful house provides you the option of soaking in the tub or taking a hot shower to help you settle in for the night in your home away from home. I like to cook and with a fully furnished kitchen, I was able to do so, just like I was at home. I hated to leave, but I will definitely be back! Thank you Aspen Lake House Owners for providing the perfect home away from home!
Oh my goodness! I was told it was going to be nice, but that would be an understatement! This was the best experience of my life in a lake house. I could not ask for anything better but to stay at such a wonderful place! The house is kept up, the rooms were great, and the scenery was amazing! As a city boy, I did not want to leave! I will definitely be going back to this house and I highly recommend anyone going to Vicor, CO to stay at the Aspen Lake House!
First of all the ad mislead us to think we were staying on 80 acres up in the mountains well that is not true there is a house right next door and a state Park Reservoir in front of the property which is open to the public for camping.
When we checked in we noticed fingerprints on both the kitchen and dining room tables and the fireplace glass doors kitchen counters were dirty the fridge have what it look like dried blood in the top drawer the hall bath head spiders webs and 6 black spiders we checked in and cleaned it was late Thursday night Friday late morning around noon a knock on the door I guess it was the cleaning lady she seemed surprised we were there she asked for trash we told her we had none because we just checked in but there was trash there that was from tenants before us so we opened up the garage door and she came in and got the trash then on Monday an older lady came up got stuck coming up the road toward the road went in the ditch there's only two houses up that driveway and you have to go through a private gate and you have to have the combination she came up to the house my husband and son helped her get her car out and she was very unhappy did not say why she was up there turned around and left we were worried about leaving the house the whole week we were there because of our personal belongings if two different people could show up while we were there what's the chances of people coming in when we were not there people camping at the reservoir there was a lot over 30 people we counted 10 tents in 1 area they drink and partied all night we heard gunfire go off every single night people fighting dog fights horns honking one guy even after dark did not realize that the house was right there and brought up his yellow tent and set it up in the yard in the front down by the trees the next morning when we walk down to him to talk to him he apologized and said he did not know the house was there that he was trying to get away from the drunks to there's no air-conditioning and it was over 4th of July weekend it was warm we were there a week we had to open the windows to get air and all we heard was the campers and people partying we talked to locals they said there's always people there camping at that Reservoir that is extremely popular.
