Why Debbie Gaudin chose Colorado

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...

Owner's Response: All of the above is true, and then you have the lovely blue lake (Skagway Reservoir) just down the hill that's loaded with all kinds of trout! You've got to check this place out for yourselves. The summer and fall are fabulous times here in the 9,300' altitude!

We loved the wraparound deck and the private balcony. Having a washer and dryer was an added bonus. The kitchen was well appointed.

Absolutely Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

This home is fantastic! Everything is perfect. The house has it all. Every detail has been very well thought of. All you need to bring is your food. Everything else is already pretty much provided. There was plenty of room for our family, six adults, two children under age seven and a six month old. The big wrap around porch was a favorite of the the children. The view is fantastic. If you prefer a quite, secluded and scenic place to stay at, then this is your place. We got to meet the owners of the home and they are wonderful Christian people.

Excellent Away-from-it-all vacation with perfect accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

May 2017 - Our family wanted to experience Colorado and all of its beauty without all of the hustle and bustle of Colorado Springs. The Upper Lake House certainly delivered! At one point my daughter said, "I wanted a place where I would not hear any motorized vehicles, only the sounds of nature." And she smiled... my teenager SMILED! Beauty, comfort, everything needed in the well stocked kitchen, great wifi at the house, and views galore. The property manager was amazing to work with and prepared us completely for what to expect staying deep in the beautiful mountains. And the bed was so comfortable... dreamy, deep sleep. Wildlife views: elk, mule deer, turkey, and gorgeous birds. We caught beautiful trout in the stream and hiked right there on the property as well as through the beaver creek area. We cannot wait to get back to this rental for another vacation!
