If the 'camping' you enjoy most includes plush carpeting, cable TV, WiFi, full kitchen and a comfortable king sized bed, and if your idea of 'rustic' means a view of majestic mountains out your many-windowed living room, then you will enjoy being a guest at our Rocky Top Vacation Home Rental. Our modern log housekeeping 'cabin' offers the cozy comfort of all wood interiors and comfortable furnishings. Private BBQ grill and picnic table allows you to enjoy outdoor dining, and gliding cedar porch chairs are a comfortable alternative to 'sittin' round a campfire'. The first floor contains the kitchen, living/dining, bedroom with king bed and bathroom. The upper floor has a bedroom with king bed and another full bathroom. The kitchen is equipped with full sized electric range, full sized refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee maker, and all the dishes, pots, pans, etc. that you should need. Towels and linens are provided, too. We have a lovely, private setting, but are still convenient to town, being 1/4 mile north of the town limits - close enough to walk to restaurants and stores, but far enough to be 'away from it all', with the Crystal Lake Trail as close as your back door. Haven't been to Lake City? Well, if the Colorado vacation you dream about includes a remote, historic mountain town nestled in a valley of breathtaking mountains, clear alpine lakes and gurgling streams, then you won't be disappointed with Lake City. Founded as a mining town in the 1870's, and now a Colorado Historic District, Lake City is considered one of the undiscovered gems of the Rockies. Located at the junction of two scenic byways, it remains surprisingly unspoiled by commercialism and 'glitz'. It is a jeep -lovers and flyfishing-lovers paradise, as well as shops, restaurants, movie theater, live theater and concerts, museum, and did I mention mountains?? We have 5 '14ers' right here in our county!

Fly fishing, jeeping, ATVing, history, the most gorgeous mountains you can imagine, these are the things people come to Lake City to experience. And the Arts Center, with live theater, an old-time cinema (that plays modern movies, no less), and an old fashioned soda fountain, are great entertainment, too. Lake City also has a nice walking path that meanders along the river. But for those with the energy and desire to do so, the mountain climbing (5 '14ers' to climb!) is unsurpassed.
About the owner: When we first visited Lake City in 1982, we knew by the end of the week that we wanted to make it our home. Being native Texans, but rarely able to enjoy our beloved Rocky Mountains, we asked the kids, 'how would you like to move to vacation?'. Our oldest was 3 at the time, but already a real adventurer, so no problem there!
We didn't know at the time if Bob's paper conservation business would survive the move, so we decided we would not only build a house for ourselves, but would also build for other vacationers like ourselves, who might prefer a nice, modern log vacation home to stay in while enjoying the ruggedness of the mountains. So, the next year found us hammering, sawing, drilling, and freezing, as we built our home and guest cabins, and we've never regretted a minute of it. We hope to provide you with the kind of mountain experience we always enjoyed, and we consider it a privilege to be your hosts during your Lake City stay.
