Our guests agree, this cabin is ideal for groups with multiple interests! Enjoy easy access to family hiking and mountain-biking trails and serious hikers are close to La Plata Peak and Mt. Elbert trailhead. The cabin is located at the midway point of the famous Leadville 100 Ultra Run and you are ¼ mile from the famous Colorado Trail. The lake is a short walk through town and has nice sandy beaches, high mountain lake fishing and beautiful open views. A wonderful day hike (6 miles round trip) takes you around the lake to the Historic Dexter House and Interlaken Hotel, where you can tour a house from 1890. Fly-fishing is popular on the Arkansas River and the best river rafting in Colorado is located in Buena Vista and Salida (30 miles away). Aspen is a scenic 40-mile drive over Independence Pass (open only in the summer) where you will find art galleries, wonderful restaurants, shops, horseback riding, golf and the Summer Music & Design Festival. Historic Leadville is 28 miles away. In the winter enjoy snowshoeing, alpine and cross-country skiing. Cross country skiing trails are close by in the winter up Independence Pass or South Fork with groomed flat trails in Leadville. Snowshoeing for multiple abilities is available out the door. A fun (but safe) sledding hill is located right outside the cabin. Downhill skiing at Ski Cooper (32 miles), Copper Mountain (45 miles) or Vail (66 miles).
Our cabin was built for kids! We have a secret playroom off a family bedroom, and a copula with 360 views of the mountains to view wildlife, read stories and sketch. Outside we have a tree house and rope swing....moreless

About the owner: Our family has been vacationing at Twin Lakes for generations and we remodeled our log cabin in 1999 to accommodate our large extended family.
Why the Owner Chose Twin Lakes: We have traveled all over the world and I believe Twin Lakes is one of the most beautiful spots in the world. This cabin offers outdoor winter activities (skiing, x-country skiing, snow shoeing) along with Summer activities (hiking, backpacking, horseback riding climbing, trail running, mountain biking. rafting, fly fishing) and easy access to Aspen (Summer only) and Vail valleys.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: Spectacular hiking, long walks, open views. Our family loves to take a long hike in the morning and spend late afternoons with a picnic basket, books and sketch books reading on the sandy beach at Twin Lakes. The kids canoe, raft, swim and fish in the lake - although the lake, fed by snow melt, is pretty cold year around.
