Property description

Perched hundreds of feet above Lake Vallecito, this professionally managed, 2-story floor plan with two living areas opens up to the stunning views of the massive lake and mountain peaks. Looking through grand windows, three sliding glass doors or sitting outside on one of the two decks provide aerial landscapes that will take your breath away!

Wildlife abounds at your doorstep, with the chipmunks and deer at play. Hummingbirds flutter at the deck, while eagles soar above the boaters on the lake. Vallecito Lake, sheltered in a mountain valley 8,000 feet above the sea, is one of the largest and most beautiful lakes in Colorado. The San Juan National Forest and Weminuche Wilderness, over 2.5 million acres of public land, surround Vallecito Lake and touch the north boundary of this spectacular mountain retreat. Families can hike or horseback directly to the wilderness area and the Continental Divide.

Three rock fireplaces provide warmth to the master bedroom and two living areas. Vaulted ceilings showcase the T&G wood ceiling and floor to ceiling windows. The house was recently furnished, freshly decorated and has all new bedding. The spacious kitchen and open floorplan is perfect for entertaining. The small kitchenette downstairs provides additional comforts for large families or two family stays. The two car garage and walk off 2nd story porch provides added comfort.
Summer or winter, this location is for those who want to experience the adrenaline of mountain lake experiences and skiing or just want to relax and enjoy the beauty of the wilderness and the star-filled skies at night.

Fall brings beautiful colors and fishing opportunities in the two rivers that continually feed the lake. The house is situated above Doc’s Marina and timing the lake’s salmon run is a lasting event in itself. With over 50 miles of streams and numerous ‘hike in’ mountain lakes, the opportunities to catch rainbows, brookies, browns, and cutthroats are like the views, endless. Larger Pike, Rainbow and Brown Trout troll the lake. The adjacent wilderness area is Colorado's largest, and adventurers can hunt and hike on 500 miles of trails. The changing of the season provides a unique panoramic view of trees in color. This 1 acre property will provide a base camp to exceed expectations.

Winter snowmobiling and cross country skiing at the lake can be enhanced by short drives to Durango Mountain Resort/Purgatory and Wolf Creek. These renowned ski areas have had some of the best snow conditions in the country the last few years.
