Jefferson house description

This quintessential Colorado mountain house getaway is secluded, yet near lots of attractions. Just what you've been looking for and VERY reasonably priced, our home is located just 1 3/4 hours from Denver or Colorado Springs. Hike, bike, ski/snow board, cross country ski, fish, or sight see, and return to your cozy mountain cabin with all the comforts of home. Enjoy unprecedented peace, quiet and 180 degree views of the snow-capped Rockies, meadows, trees and rock outcroppings from the 20 foot wall of windows or loft. Look for antelope, deer, elk, golden eagles, owl and bear from the wrap around 500 square foot deck.

The home sits on two heavily wooded acres, has a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and Aspen tongue and groove ceilings. The master bedroom offers a full size king size bed, and the two other bedrooms (one on entry level with its own bath) offer queen beds. The entry level floor is fully finished and offers a third living area and game table as well as laundry room with washer/dryer. Stay connected with wireless satellite Internet, play games from the game chest, or enjoy movies on the DVD Player/36' TV. Chef's kitchen is fully equipped for cooking or baking, and there is a gas BBQ on the deck for evening cookouts. Leave refreshed, relaxed and recharged!


Come relax, recharge, and enjoy nature and the outdoors. Enjoy a multitude of attractions in the area, with just a short ride home to the peace and quiet of your exclusive and private mountain retreat. Minutes away you can hike or mountain bike the Pike National Forest at Kenosha Pass, go trekking through the Lost Park Wilderness Area or along the Colorado Trail nearby, go 4-wheeling over Mosquito Pass (the old Stagecoach route to Leadville), Georgia Pass or Boreas Pass (the old railroad route to Breckenridge), or enjoy horseback riding.

In winter, you can cross Hoosier Pass and ski at Breckenridge or Keystone, or stay on 285 and ski at the moderately priced, less used Monarch ski resort on Monarch Pass. Lots of great winter activities in Breckenridge too including an ice skating rink and hot chocolate sleigh rides in Frisco. They also have two Nordic lodges in Breckenridge and Frisco where you can cross country ski on groomed trails. Alternatively, just rent the skis in Fairplay and do it outside your door from the cabin!

                              Centrally located in Park County, we are situated between Denver and Colorado Springs - but about 40 to 50 miles due west near the Continental Divide, Jefferson, and Kenosha Pass. Let's just say its a beautiful drive from either city and a great jumping off point to lots of attractions; Breckenridge skiing (39 miles), Buena Vista and river rafting the Arkansas, the Royal Gorge in Canon City, Pikes Peak, Tarryall Reservoir, the Colorado Trail, Jefferson Lake, Lost Creek Wilderness area, Fairplay's old gold mining town, Kenosha Pass, Boreas Pass, and Georgia Pass. Shopping and restaurants are located nearby in Fairplay, Jefferson, and Como.

                              Other Activities: Hike the nearby Colorado Trail, Indian Mountain, or other spectacular trails nearby. River raft, ride horses, rent ATV's near Buena Vista or Salida.

                              Ski: World class skiing is just 39 miles away in Breckenridge, CO - a 50 minute drive.

                               

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2007

                              About the owner: We love to travel when we aren't working on real estate in the Denver area. David is a real estate agent, and Gary helps to manage our real estate development and rental business.

                              Why the Owner Chose Jefferson:
                              We enjoy getting away to the beauty, clean air and serenity of the mountains as a break from our hectic lives. Our cabin is the perfect getaway from it all, yet still affords us many activities to get outdoors to enjoy nature's beauty.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              Surreal views from every window and deck - it honestly feels like you are watching a movie in 3D, even at night! When you go outside, it feels like you are in a planetarium since there is no ambient light from anywhere. The dark skies with no ambient light allow you to see across the stars and galaxies and realize what a small a place our Earth is in the whole universe!
