Property description

Located on a mountainside overlooking Lake Dillon in the foreground; commanding & breathtaking views of peaks in the 10 Mile, Gore, Tenderfoot Ranges is a special property we call “our get away”. We bought it for our second home and use it often. The home is very family friendly, comfortable and has a distinctive Rocky Mountain Western influence w/ rock/beam, alder finishes, artwork. For more photos & information, please visit our website at SkiingTheSummit com

The home backs up to the Arapahoe Nat'l Forest affording plentiful hiking, exploring the land, play horseshoes or use your imagination in our large teepee in the backyard. You’ll feel right at home when you walk in the door of this cozy & relaxing resort getaway. Breathtaking views of the snow capped surrounding mountain peaks fill the 12 foot high wall of windows that frame the great & dining rooms. The elegant yet rustic/cozy atmosphere is centered by a 30 ft. natural rock fireplace in the main family room finishes off the western ambiance of our mountain home.

You’ll enjoy the mountain scenery that surrounds the home, making it the perfect place for creating family memories. Views are stunning from all windows in the home, w/large decks on the front, side and back of the home which afford sweeping views from each deck. The home gives you easy access to all of the activities of Summit County. Of course winter is just one of the 4 best seasons to stay in this vacation home. There are great activities available year round at each of the resorts & towns.

The home provides easy access to restaurants, grocery & liquor stores, shopping and ski rentals and Keystone, Breckenridge & Copper Mt Ski Resorts making this location very convenient for a special vacation. Hiking, biking, sledding & snowshoeing can be done out the back door!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: Our family has been coming to Summit County to vacation for years ... both winter and summer. We live in the Denver area, and truly look forward to our 'down' time and getting away to Summit County to unplugging from the rat race. Nothing has been as beneficial for coming together as a family than when we gather to enjoying all of the great things Summit County offers! The Unique Benefits of this Home... We really enjoy being able to walk to Lake Dillon, biking on the bike trail, hiking behind our home, sledding from our place, getting away from the crowds when it's time to relax ... the location is perfect for us! We enjoy hiking, biking, walking to Dillon Marina in the summer In the winter, of course, we set our sights on skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, snowmobiling & so on. One of our favorite things about our home is being able to spend some time before dinner, building a large fire, listening to our favorite tunes using the stereo and outdoor speakers. Dining out is always a joy with the numerous choice of great restaurants in Summit County! Then, after all of the activity of the day, it's great to get a good night's rest, thanks to the very comfortable bedding we've put into our home. When it's time to leave ... well, we just have to start planning our next visit!

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
The abundant recreational activities and spectacular mountain views and lake setting.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
National Forest that adjoins our property
