Property description

Enjoy this 2600 square foot custom-finished log home (non-smoking) in the San Juan Mountains in beautiful Lake City Colorado. Rock the afternoon away on the covered front porch or enjoy the sunny 440 sq. foot deck overlooking the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River with patio table and umbrella, gas grill and beautiful views of Round Mountain and Red Mountain. Relax to the sound of the river flowing by the rustic gazebo. This home was completed in 2007 with granite countertops, stained glass accents, hardwood floors, 22 foot vaulted aspen ceilings and is situated on seven town lots. Lake City is truly a mountain paradise!

The kitchen is fully equipped including cookware, mixer, dishes, crockpot, pancake griddle, dishwasher, trash compater, and a warming drawer. The new gas grill is just outside the double glass doors leading from the kitchen to the deck. The intimate dining room will seat 6 - 8 people with additional seating for two at the granite-topped island.

The master suite has double glass doors leading to a deck overlooking the river and a lovely new king-sized mattress (January 2014). The private bath has double sinks with a tub/shower with a glass door. The art glass window provides a wonderful mountain breeze.

The upstairs bedroom with full bed and private balcony affords magnificent views of the river and canyon. The second upstairs bedroom has a queen bed with views of the town. Between the two bedrooms is a spacious, shared bath with doors from each bedroom. Each bedroom has a huge walk-in closet as well. This larged, shared bath has double pedestal sinks separated by a granite top vanity. The tub/shower combination with glass doors and toilet are in a separate room. These two upstairs bedrooms lead into the large loft furnished with a rustic-but-new pool table with a catwalk leading to an electronic Yamaha keyboard. All beds have heated mattress pads, and there is central heat for your comfort as well.

The upstairs bedrooms were designed to have naturally circulating air. What this means is that each of the two upstairs bedrooms have 20 foot vaulted ceilings, and the air from the two rooms escapes upward. And the center wall of each of the rooms is 9 feet tall. However, part of the ceiling of each of the two rooms is open so that air escapes and naturally circulates with all of the air in the home. This creates a natural, circulating air system that keeps the temperatures extremely comfortable. Although these two rooms are side-by-side, there are two closets and a bathroom separating them. Because of the design (and ceiling fans in both upstairs rooms and two over the loft), even snoring & conversation can generally not even be detected outside of your bedroom.

There is ample parking for multiple vehicles including an RV area with both 30 and 50 amp service and a carport. A lockable 180 sq foot storage room off the carport gives you ample space to safely store bicycles, coolers, and sporting gear out of the weather. There are 5 bicyles (including a child's bike) and an air pump for your enjoyment.

The upstairs loft with skylights and mountain-view windows is stocked with Monopoly, puzzles, cards, UNO, Phase 10, Skipbo, and a collection of various novels. This is a great getaway area to spend undisturbed time on a puzzle or enjoy a book in the comfortable chair with your feet up on the ottoman. The new 46' Sony Bravia LCD television in the great room has a PlayStation 3 with 2 controllers that plays both traditional CD and Blue Ray discs (bring your own games or extra controllers for hours of fun!).

The laundry room is equipped with washer, dryer, ironing board, iron and clothes rack. Laundry detergent is also supplied.

With the cabin situated in the old historic district, you are within a few blocks of the downtown area, post office, multiple eating establishments, churches, town parks, coffee shops, post office, fly fishing shop, quaint shops, visitors' center, movie theater, and new state-of-the-art medical center. So relaxing to just to keep your car parked and watch the fawns frolic through town!

The town of Creede (outstanding theater in the summer, restaurants, shopping art galleries, excellent fly fishing & guides) is about an hour to the south, and the larger ski-towns of Gunnison (50 miles to the north) and Crested Butte (1 1/2 hours north) are fun day trips with river rafting (check out Taylor River in Gunnison), restaurants (Garlic Mike's in Gunnison), and many speciality shops. The coffee bistro and Colorado-style Mexican food at Donita's in Crested Butte are family favorites. All three of these small towns--Gunnsion, Creede, and Crested Butte are easy day trips from Lake City. For those wanting a national park experience, a day hike through the Black Canyon of the Gunnison is guaranteed not to disappoint.

You'll be sure to thoroughly enjoy your stay in this picturesque mountain town which is truly a step back in time.

SNAPSHOTS THAT DESCRIBE THIS CABIN: on the river, two story (non-smoking), fishing, spacious decks for entertaning or morning reading, quiet gazebo with beautiful mountain views, close enough to town to walk to quaint restaurants and town activities, old fashioned ice cream parlor on the square, talented community theater, burgers at the saloon, three cozy coffee shops, awesome hiking to fourteeners or the waterfalls of Cataract Gulch, evening drives to see the moose and elk, Lake City ski hill & world class snowmobiling all winter, bike or fourwheel up mountain trails . . . . Truly a hidden mountain paradise!

The RIVER CABIN is smoke-free and is available year-round. Inquire for long-term rates for stays of 8+ nights, especially perfect for watching the aspens change in September and October or just relaxing in the beautiful of the winter wonderland.

Owned and operated by MOUNTAIN MEMORIES, described by many as having Lake City's finest rentals with the special touches usually seen in the country's nicest B & B's. See our sister property at VRBO #427595! We'd love to have you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Come and experience Colorado's best kept secret!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Enjoy fly fishing along the riverfront or taking a 5-minute walk to one of the local coffee shops for an afternoon mocha. And the old fashioned ice cream parlor has the best ice cream, milk shakes, and banana splits in Colorado. An early morning hike to the base of Uncompahgre Peak (fourteener), fly fishing lessons, and hikes to the waterfalls of Cataract Gulch (past Lake San Cristobal) are our favorite memories.
