Overview

About the property

Single-Family 3 bedroom/3 bath w/Lake Views, Sleeps 8-10

Perched hundreds of feet above Lake Vallecito, this professionally managed, 2-story floor plan with two living areas opens up to the stunning views of the massive lake and mountain peaks. Looking through grand windows, three sliding glass doors or sitting outside on one of the two decks provide aerial landscapes that will take your breath away!

CO Sales Tax #30377430

Wildlife abounds at your doorstep, with the chipmunks and deer at play. Hummingbirds flutter at the deck, while eagles soar above the boaters on the lake. Vallecito Lake, sheltered in a mountain valley 8,000 feet above the sea, is one of the largest and most beautiful lakes in Colorado. The San Juan National Forest and Weminuche Wilderness, over 2.5 million acres of public land, surround Vallecito Lake and touch the north boundary of this spectacular mountain retreat. Families can hike or horseback directly to the wilderness area and the Continental Divide.

Three rock fireplaces provide warmth to the master bedroom and two living areas. Vaulted ceilings showcase the T&G wood ceiling and floor to ceiling windows. The house was recently furnished, freshly decorated and has all new bedding. The spacious kitchen and open floorplan is perfect for entertaining. The small kitchenette downstairs provides additional comforts for large families or two family stays. The two car garage and walk off 2nd story porch provides added comfort.

Summer or winter, this location is for those who want to experience the adrenaline of mountain lake experiences and skiing or just want to relax and enjoy the beauty of the wilderness and the star-filled skies at night.

Fall brings beautiful colors and fishing opportunities in the two rivers that continually feed the lake. The house is situated above Doc’s Marina and timing the lake’s salmon run is a lasting event in itself. With over 50 miles of streams and numerous ‘hike in’ mountain lakes, the opportunities to catch rainbows, brookies, browns, and cutthroats are like the views, endless. Larger Pike, Rainbow and Brown Trout troll the lake. The adjacent wilderness area is Colorado's largest, and adventurers can hunt and hike on 500 miles of trails. The changing of the season provides a unique panoramic view of trees in color. This 1 acre property will provide a base camp to exceed expectations.

Winter snowmobiling and cross country skiing at the lake can be enhanced by short drives to Durango Mountain Resort/Purgatory and Wolf Creek. All-wheel or 4-wheel drive necessary to access the property during winter months.

Weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house and we had such an awesome experience. It was big and spacious. The view's were unbelievable. We went down to the lake one day to rent a boat and fish, and went into durango another day to white water raft and tour the town. It only took about 35 minutes to get to durango, and about another 30-45 minutes to get to mesa verde. We absolutely loved this place and will definitely choose to stay at this house if we could back this way. I would (and have) highly recommend this house to anyone looking for the perfect vacation.

Beautiful but neglected

  • 3 of 5

The home is in a beautiful location! Gorgeous views! They home is very beautiful but seems neglected.

Sliding doors to deck all had broken screen doors. Some screens held together with duct tape! Large pile of old wood and old lawn chairs in front yard.

Carpet was badly stained on stairs and downstairs living area.

We were promised some amenities by the owner and it never happened. We tried to contact owner several times ( about home issues) but no response.

I would still recommend this property for the views alone!

Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this house!!! The split plan of having the master bedroom on the top floor and the rest of the rooms on the bottom floor with a small kitchen was perfect for my family and our reunion. The view is amazing!!!! The dear were exciting for our children to see. The location is close to trek into Durango. The fishing was a bust but my family went to Lemon lake which is close by and my grandkids caught lots of fish. A very success vacation, wish we stayed longer.
