Property description

Fifty two tall pines, two swings, a playhouse with a loft and a fire ring take up some of the space between this spacious log cabin and a day fishing on your own private part of the river. With four separate bedrooms, three queen size beds and three twin beds, there is more than enough room for everyone in your family...and then there's the basement with another queen size bed, a twin and a double foton sofa, so you can bring the in-laws too! There's a sunporch that is warm all year with great southern exposures and views of mountains and our personal meadow. Deer, marmots, squirrels, chipmunks, occasionally a bear and cub can be watched while enjoying a meal at our custom made 10 foot dining table. Sit on the back porch to see the river and watch the birds. Enjoy a good book in a hammock under the trees and next to the sculpting area.The homeowners are artists and work with Yule marble so you will see pieces of marble, waiting to be sculpted.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We are artists and art teachers. We came to Colorado, specifically to Marble, so we could sculpt in marble. Each summer we participate in the Marble/marble Symposium just 5 miles up the road from the cabin. This sculpture is titled, 'Slow Dancer' made from Yule marble by Christopher Webb (2'x2'x3' photo taken at Redstone Art Gallery annual Sculptors Show)

Why the Owner Chose Marble:
We fell in love with this place because of the location on the river, the trees, playhouse,swings and the fact that it is a log cabin! It is a place we share with our extended families and friends. There is enough space for everyone. In the winter we sled just outside the front door, snowshoe, cross country ski in and around Redstone and Marble and ski at Snowmass (45Mins.) and Sunlight (35mins) ski resorts. Our road is plowed all winter, but four wheel drive vehicles are best, or use chains! Spring , summer and fall provide time for hiking, fishing, rafting, horseback riding and biking...and photography, painting and sculpting. We are also close to the wine country in Paonia, a awesome 50 mile drive thru alpine meadows, Aspen groves and amazing peaks to Crested Butte and 30 miles to the famous hot springs pool in Glenwood Springs. (You can also enjoy hot springs about 6 miles down river for free)

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
You can drive into the garage, walk thru the basement, drop your skis or bike, then climb up to the main level where you'll find a fully equipped kitchen, laundry room, living and dining room area, sun porch, two bedrooms one bath and covered deck. Go one flight higher and you'll find two more bedrooms with skylights, log ceilings and a bath. The interiors are all pine or logs, there are two wood burning stoves that provide more than enough heat to warm every room. Satellite TV, DSL internet. iPod ready speakers,and a phone (landline) are available...there is no cell phone service here.
