Property description

Awesome, spectacular views right from your bed! The cabin sits high on a ridge overlooking the Twin Lakes and four of Colorado's highest peaks, including the tallest - Mt. Elbert. The cabin is on the lake side of the first road on the ridge. The only thing between you and the view is crisp, clean, mountain air.

The first floor, of the two story cabin, is the Mt. Hope studio apartment - A Little TLC for the senses. A roomy, 600 Sq. Ft. apartment. One large, central room has a sleeping area on one end, with a comfy queen bed and down comforter.

The opposite end of the central room has a TV/sitting area with recliner and log futon. Two additional rooms consist of a spacious, modern bath with shower and a kitchenette (frig, micro, cooktop, coffeemaker). There is lots of light and awesome views from two 6 foot windows in the studio's main room and a four foot window in the kitchen. We think you will find it to be a comfortable and clean 'home-away-from-home.'

A complimentary Breakfast Basket includes coffee, teas, cereal, etc. The kitchen and apartment are fully equipped. All you really need is yourself, your clothing/essentials and food/drink items. Satellite TV with DVR allows you to record your favorite shows or sporting events while you are out having fun.

Twin Lakes is centrally located - a great jumping off point for your vacation fun. It is east of Aspen over Independence Pass - one of the truly great drives in the USA. Leadville to the north, Buena Vista and Salida to the south are full of things to do and see. One to one + half hours away via scenic highway drives are Copper Mountain, Vail, Frisco, Silverthorne and Aspen.

Try golf at Mt. Massive - the highest 9 hole course in America. Raft on the famed Arkansas River. 4x4 the several local passes and roads to Ghost Towns. Enjoy hiking, fishing, photography and birdwatching just outside the door. Come see the golden Aspen leaves in Sept.

There are lots of reasons to come to Twin Lakes and to stay at TLC. Your reservation is a call or an email away!

DIRECTIONS: From I-70 go south from Copper Mountain on CO 91 to Leadville. Take US Hwy 24 East (you will be travelling south by compass) 15 mi. to CO 82 to Twin Lakes. As you see the lakes to the left, LOOK RIGHT and turn right on a right turn lane onto CR 10 (small blue sign). Follow the asphalt 1 mile, take the first hard left onto the largest hardpack road (Ross Dr.). Go approx. 3/4 mile and make the first left (Mt. Hope Dr.). 48 Mt. Hope is the 3rd cabin on the left - park next to the ore cart. From the south (Buena Vista, CO)take Hwy 24 West (you will be travelling north by compass) CO 82, turn west and follow the above directions.
