                      The Colorado Plateau is your back yard at Sweetwater.

                      Wildlife at Sweetwater includes deer, elk, red tail hawk, porcupines, raccoons, golden eagles to mention a few. During the summer months you may see the occasional bear looking for chokecherries or blueberries in season.

                      Three major ski areas within from 1-3 hours from Sweetwater: Telluride, Wolf Creek, Purgatory (Durango Mountain Resort).

                      The Durango-Silverton Railway departs daily during the summer and fall. Mesa Verde (a scenic 1 1/2 hours from Sweetwater), or Chimney Rock or Aztec Ruins offer a spectacular perspective into the history of the Colorado Plateau. Durango is a destination town for kayaking, mountain biking, fly fishing, white water rafting, hiking or just relaxing and walking along the Animas River in our town nestled in the San Juan Mountains

                       

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 1995

                      Why Sweetwater Springs:
                      Our house at Sweetwater Springs Ranch was built and lived in by our parents with ample space for extended family visits and events. Many of the family still live in the Durango area and the house continues to be cared for by the family.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      A walk (or run) on the 'loop' or a hike around the property on well-marked paths is a unique offering at Sweetwater. Plenty of private property to enjoy and the silent beauty of nights with no city lights to obstruct the wonders of the sky. Close to both Lemon Reservoir and Vallecito Resevoir for boating, fishing, and swimming for lake activities and horse rides into the surrounding mountains.
