Hahns Peak house description

Medicine Bow is a 3000 square foot log home that was used in the past as a bed and breakfast. The view of Iron Mountain is stunning, and the setting is private, yet accessible, as the house is situated on 35 acres of aspen and spruce forest, meadows and beaver ponds, half a mile from a paved road. There's great hiking and biking in the Routt National Forest, right from your front door! This house is perfect for small GROUPS, or RETREATS. Also, may we recommend Medicine Bow as lodging for your WEDDING party, as nearby historic Columbine Cabins (1/2 mile away) has additional lodging and facilities to host larger gatherings.

The house has a large living room with a 2-1/2 story ceiling, featuring a rock fireplace 35 feet high. The living room houses a comfortable seating area and a dining table, both of which comfortably accommodate ten people. The kitchen is large and well equipped, with gas stove and electric wall ovens. A den, located off the kitchen has a smaller table and an intimate seating area facing a convenient propane fireplace. The adjacent sunroom has a twin daybed, bedside table, and storage shelving, making it a popular destination for lounging during the day or a sought-after 'bedroom' with a great view. The downstairs corner bedroom (with a queen bed) has a bathroom with toilet, sink, and shower, that can also be accessed from the hall (handy to the living area).

Upstairs is a master bedroom (queen bed plus twin) with an attached full bath. It features tapestry-covered walls, an antique armiore and dresser, and high ceilings. Two additional bedrooms (each with a queen bed) share a bath with toilet, sink, and shower. These bedrooms also have tapestried walls and high ceilings, and one has an exterior balcony and staircase. (The exterior door can be locked to prevent both entry and exit, if parents so desire).

There are outdoor deck areas with views, lawn furniture, and propane grill.

The owners live nearby, so we are available if you need assistance of any kind. We have been in the hospitality business for 16 years and will welcome you warmly. Pets and children welcome, too.

Although we have a landline phone, satellite TV, and wireless internet, there is no cell phone coverage here, (which can be a good thing).

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: We are Lyman and Jan. We enjoy our beautiful house 8 months of the year, and in the summer/fall, we relocate to the garage apartment on the same property (see photos) and make the house available for nightly rentals. The units have good privacy from each other, and we do not mind the sound of people enjoying themselves. Other than us, your nearest neighbor is a couple hundred yards and screened by dense forest. Please call me (Jan) if you have any questions about privacy. Other than our work, our interests include reading, hiking, photography, fixing things, and sailing. We are both former marine bilolgists. You may ask what are we doing living in the mountains of Colorado? Well, in 1994 we made the life altering decision to buy a resort a relative was selling, and we've been here ever since. We have enjoyed sharing this special area with our guests.

              Why the Owner Chose Hahns Peak:
              We first moved to this area to run Columbine Cabins. More recently, we purchased the nearby Medicine Bow property, which we have always admired (and you will see why if you vacation here!). In general, we chose this area for the beauty, and for the proximity of national forest lands, Steamboat Lake State Park, and the Mount Zirkel Wilderness area. Because our properties are part of a pocket of private land within the million acre Routt National Forest, there are many recreational choices nearby - I love hiking from right from the front door. This area is one of the nicest in Colorado, and because it is a little farther from the front range, it is uncrowded, offering opportunities for solitude.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              - explore our beaver ponds. - climb famous Hahns Peak, from the front door. - al fresco dining on the porch or deck, with unbeatable views. - veg out in the spacious living room, and do nothing (or watch large screen TV). - your dog will love Medicine Bow!!!
