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.

This home was great! The entire house was stocked with everything you would need. It had a coffee maker, ample kitchen supplies, towels, etc. The home has amazing views over looking mountains. The only downside was that in order to get to a bigger town for supplies or activities you have to drive at least an hour. If you're looking for seclusion this is a great place to visit. HIGHLY recommended!
Our Labor Day Weekend couldn't have been any nicer staying at the Aspen Lake House in Victor CO. A wonderful property in the mountains with a view to die for overlooking the reservoir. The property was clean and well maintained with everything we could possibly need available. We would highly recommend staying at the Aspen Lake House. Be prepared for the steep hill to the home, it is maintained but somewhat a challenge depending on your vehicle. A special thank you to Debbie, the property manager who was wonderful to work with.
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!
Having a family reunion? We also have the spectacular Upper Lake House (sleeps 8) just walking distance up the hill from Aspen Lake House!
