Jefferson cabin description

This cozy cabin is the perfect place for a w/e getaway or a recreation-filled summer vacation! Enjoy the mountains and resorts without I-70 traffic. Just over an hour from Denver or Colorado Springs, this classic mountain home is only a beautiful 40 minute drive over Hoosier Pass into Breckenridge. Keystone and Copper Mountain are not much further.

Located in Michigan Hill, one of the most prominent developments in Park County, this cozy but roomy 3 bedroom and 1 bath home is located on 3.5 aspen-studded acres. Views include the snow-capped mountain ranges to the North and West. The home has a spacious living area with a wood-burning stone fireplace open to the large dining area and kitchen. There are 2 bedrooms on the main level with a large bathroom which has a tub and a shower. One bedroom has a full-size bed and the other has 2 twin beds. The master bedroom and separate living area is privately located upstairs with a King size bed and it's own private balcony/porch overlooking the woods at the back of the home.

The home is not only beautiful inside but outside as well. The expansive porch across the front of the house offers magnificent views of the mountains and surrounding forest. There is a large hot tub on the front porch where you can relax and enjoy the mountain and valley views. It is easily accessible from the family room through the sliding doors. You can sit in the hot tub and watch it snow in the winter months. Comfy chairs are also provided to relax and enjoy the views. There are 2 additional porches on the back of the house (one up and one down). Herds of elk regularly gather in the fields below the home.

Michigan Hill is in the heart of all outdoor activities in the Rocky Mountains. In the winter you can snow-shoe right on the property or drive less than 5 minutes for cross country skiing and ice fishing. World-class skiing at Breckenridge is only 40 minutes away, allowing you to enjoy the hustle and bustle of Breckenridge but still be able to escape to privacy at the end of the day. In the Fall you will be in the heart of some of the most amazing aspen groves around. There are plenty of scenic views to stop at and admire the gorgeous aspen leaves turning golden orange and yellow. You will also be only 40 minutes from world-class mountain biking in Breckenridge and Keystone and 45 minutes from Buena Vista with the best whitewater rafting in Colorado. If hiking to a ghost town sounds like fun, you will be in the right place. Nearby Boreas Pass and Alma offer mining ghost towns to hike to. Buena Vista is the location of the famous ghost town of St. Elmo. Whatever your outdoor hobby may be, you will be close. The best fishing in Colorado includes the nearby Jefferson Lake, Tarrayall Reservoir, Lake Antero, Lake George, and Eleven-Mile Reservoir. As for shopping you can choose from the antique stores in nearby Como, Fairplay, and Buena Vista or the outlet malls in Silverthorne.

This home can offer you the vacation that dreams are made of. If you would like further information or pictures, please feel free to call me at the phone numbers listed on the right.

Many of the old railroad tracks can be followed. One example is Boreas Pass which is minutes away. White water rafting is limitless in Buena Vista. There are 5 different lakes and 2 rivers that are nearby for fishing. If you love hiking, Lost Creek Wilderness area is across the road and Lake Jefferson is 7 miles away. You will be centrally located to almost any outdoor activity you can think of from gold panning to ATV trails.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About the owner: We bought our home in 2006 to have a mountain getaway in a gorgeous spot. It's only an hour from Denver or CO Springs, but it feels a world away. The setting is lovely with plenty of recreation all around--hiking, biking, skiing, etc. After a long day of play, we love to soak in the hot tub and watch the sun go down and the stars come up. Our visitors/guests leave us wonderful notes about their stay. We're happy to share our slice of paradise with others. Thanks, Janet and Ed

                          Why the Owner Chose Jefferson:
                          This location is not only the most beautiful spot in Colorado but it is centrally located to all outdoor activities. It is close to world-class skiing in Breckenridge, hiking, mountain biking, fishing, hunting, 4-wheeling, rafting and so much more. We have always loved South Park for its expanse and beauty. Also, 285 is a dream compared to I-70! it is easy and scenic to get there and back.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                          The home is privately located on a quiet street with magnificent view of snow-capped peaks. It is on a 3.5 acre lot that is thickly wooded with beautiful mature Aspen trees. It is close to all the recreation areas and ski areas but still isolated enough to be cozy, quiet and beautiful. We love the bright light streaming in the large windows- makes the place feel open and peaceful. Out every window is stunning aspen trees and mountain beauty!
