Property description

This spacious, beautiful condo is nestled in the Wildernest area of Silverthorne, CO. Plenty of room for two families, you have ample room to spread out and relax. There's even a 'Kids Hideaway' upstairs with a TV and VCR! While the kids are watching their favorite movie, grab the binoculars from the mantle, and search Ryan Gulch for Moose and other wildlife frequently seen behind our property. Relax, and enjoy the view of the Ten Mile Range and Buffalo Mtn. as the sun is setting, or kick off your shoes and revitalize on your own thermal massage bed. Need some action, walk across the parking lot to the clubhouse to swim, relax in the hot tub, play foos ball or ping pong. For the skiers in the group, it is a short drive to 6 ski areas. In the warmer seasons, there are several hiking trails within walking distance.

At the Smiling Moose, kickback and strum a few notes on the guitar, listen to CD's, or watch a DVD....all provided. Of course, you are in the wilderness, so why not cross country ski, snowshoe, hike or bike, then start a fire in the fireplace and relax. You'll enjoy the 'Moosey' surroundings along with all the comforts of home. The kitchen is fully stocked, and there is even a barbeque grill. The Master bedroom has a queen bed with it's own private bathroom. The second bedroom on the first floor also has a queen bed with a bathroom. Upstairs is another queen bed, a full bed and a full bathroom. In addition, the 'Kids Hideway' room has two full size futons, so you can sleep 10 comfortably.

Enjoy this community within Silverthorne, Colorado nestled high in the trees on Buffalo Mountain.

The Wildernest Neighborhood is one-of-a kind Colorado experience. Centrally located between Dillon and Silverthorne. All the mountains** of Summit County are nearby, as are the conveniences of town such as dining and shopping, yet at Wildernest you’ll enjoy a secluded, quiet mountain vacation. National Forest land is in your backyard, with cross-country and snowshoe trails to enjoy. Views of the spectacular Gore Range and evergreens replace parking lots and traffic. Plus, you'll never be bored with all the fun family events in town!

**Copper Mtn, Keystone, Breckenridge, Arapahoe Basin, Loveland, and don't forget Vail and Beaver Creek!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We've owned the 'Smiling Moose' since July 2001. We wanted a place that was in the mountains yet easy to get to on the weekends. Our place is perfect. Its far enough away from the city that your in the wilderness yet only about an hour from Denver.

Why the Owner Chose Snowscape:
We absolutely love all the outdoor opportunities that abound in this area. Avid skiers,hikers,bikers,etc. will always find something to do to burn off a few extra calories. We would enjoy having you come and stay with us. As long time Colorado residents, we believe its a blessing to be able to live and play here.
