Nature is literally on your doorstep! Since there is no light pollution in this small community, the starry skies will amaze you! In addition to this, you have all the comforts of a luxury condo. If you are looking for the perfect place to connect with nature and refuel your engines, Meek's Hill Cabin IS the perfect place!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: Our love of Marble and the area around it goes back to the 1980's when we purchased our first property here. At the time, we believed this was the perfect getaway from our busy Denver lives. We have enjoyed our travels to Europe, South America, Mexico and throughout the U.S., but still appreciate Marble's beautiful and unique setting. Tom's career as an enrollment management consultant has taken him to colleges and universities across the country. Kay enjoyed a career as an elementary teacher. We now call Tucson 'home', but spend summers in Marble working in the gardens, playing with our two small dogs, reading and enjoying the great outdoors. We also enjoy hosting family gatherings at our Marble home.

                      Why the Owner Chose Marble:
                      After moving to Denver in the mid-1980's we bought a pop-up camper and set out with our young son to explore Colorado on weekend camping trips. Eventually, we discovered the Crystal River valley and Marble. We sold the camper, built our home and have never regretted it. The Crystal River valley is some of the the most beautiful, pristine country you will ever see. Fly-fishermen love the river. Hikers and horsemen love the trails. The back roads to Crystal City and Lead King Basin are a feast for the senses. Photographers can't get enough of the scenery, wildflowers and wildlife. We love it for the views, fresh air, great water and the occasional bear that wanders through the yard. Marble is special.
