South Fork house description

Perfect mountain home get-a-way. Skiing and snowboarding in the winter months and gold medal fishing, river rafting in the summer. The wildlife is amazing year round. I even had a black bear on my front deck in July last year. He was trying to get to my Hummingbird feeder. Relaxing on the deck with a good book or visiting with friends is one of my favorite things to do here. I also love to go shopping in the neat little shops here in South Fork, also in Creede and Pagoso Springs. The people you meet in the stores become friends before you leave. The owners of the stores take time to get to know you. It is so different from the big city I live in. Very refreshing. The mountain views are awesome and the air, even though thin at 8500 feet, is clean and cool even in July and August.The Aspen trees become golden in late September and early October. I have a grove of Aspens right in my yard. The sound of them blowing in the wind is awesome. There are hot springs in nearby Pagosa Springs that are open year round and very relaxing and beneficial for your body.
The winters here are beautiful beyond compare. Snow covers the area and can start snowing any time between Labor Day until Memorial Day. I was just there on May 1st this year and it snowed several inches. The home is located in a mountain valley and every view is beautiful. There is a spring that you can hear running. It runs into the pond and down to the river at the end of the street. The two rivers come together here in South Fork. The Rio Grande and the San Juan.
The home has a King size bed in the master bedroom and a private bathroom. Even the views from the shower of the mountain are amazing. There is also a queen size bed in the guest bedroom upstairs. Also twin beds in the loft bedroom. These two bedrooms share a bath.
I hope you will come and visit and enjoy my mountain home as much as I do. It truly is a Place of Quiet Rest.
The interior of the home is all Aspen Wood and the furnishings are also made of Aspen wood. The home is truly a Log Home.

              Pagosa Springs is 35 miles away and has the best hot springs resort that is open year round.

              Creede is 21 miles away and has an underground mine museum and there are always summer activities held there.

              On the road from Creede to Lake City there is an amazing waterfall. Watch for brown sign directing you to it. Just a few miles before you get into Lake City.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: I am retired and love the mountains.. My family and me share good times here in South Fork. The town is small and has all kinds of events.We love the 4th of July parade and even prepare a float and become part of the parade. The grand kids love hiking in the forest. My home is on 2 acres and there are plenty of trails in the woods They love to fish in the private pond in our subdivision. It is stocked with trout. We love to feast on grilled trout.

              Why the Owner Chose South Fork:
              My husband and me looked for years for the perfect vacation home. I lost him in June 2008 and I feel like God directed me to this home and made a way for me to buy it. He even gave me a name for the home...Kairos in the Mountains. Kairos means 'an appointed place in the purpose of God'. Every one that has had the opportunity to stay here has felt the peace and quietness of the home. It is a very special place for me and if you are able to come I know it will be for you also.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              I enjoy sitting on the deck just admiring the majesty of the mountains and the wildlife. During the winter months the kids love playing in the snow, sledding down the mountain and roasting marshmallows over our wood burning stove. In the summer months we love to fish for trout in the pond in our subdivision and grill them for dinner. You have to keep an eye on the food on the grill because the bears like to eat also. There have been mountain lions in the area also, so be aware of your surroundings while outdoors. The home is in the national forest area. Exactly what you would want it to be.
