Located just a few miles south of Leadville and close to Twin Lakes and the Historic Hayden Ranch, THE WILLOWS has a peaceful setting while giving easy access to Highway 24 for quick trips to mountain trails, ski resorts, or simply Colorado sight-seeing. Backing to BLM open space, the Cabin has Huge Views of Mt. Elbert (Colorado's Highest Peak) and the Mt. Massive range. This is a fisherman's paradise with only a few minutes walk to the Arkansas River and a short drive to multiple fishing lakes.
The rustic external appearance of the cabin is deceiving. The open ranch style floor plan of this ~1,800 sq. ft. three bedroom, two bath home away from home has been updated with all the modern conveniences while keeping a true Colorado Mountain Cabin feel. The reclaimed barn wood floors, massive timber architectural features, rustic furniture and resort cabin decorating all will add to your Colorado vacation experience.
For extended stays (once you visit for a weekend, you may want to spend month or more…), guests can leverage the full size washer and dryer to ensure they never run out of fresh clothes.
Colorado 14’ers are all around you; Mt. Elbert is the highest in Colorado at 14,433 and it’s directly outside the back door. A short distance up highway 82 toward Aspen is the trailhead to LaPlata Peak. The trailhead for Mt. Elbert is right around the corner. Hiking, snowshoeing, snow-mobiling on the multitude of trails in Lake County are among the leading outdoor activities in central Colorado. (There are some very good maps showing all the area trail-head, hiking & ATV trails at the shops in Leadville)
Little known but highly recommended is to spend a half-day (at least) on the Leadville “Route of the Silver Kings” just east of Leadville. ( http://www.visitleadvilleco.com/history_tours ). Becky and I have been going to Leadville for years and just discovered this last Summer. VERY interesting. We'll be doing it again...slower...this Summer.
Fishing access is plentiful in our surrounding lakes and rivers: ForeBay lake, Twin lakes, Turquoise, and the Arkansas River just across the road.
ATV trails are plentiful and Lake County has a local ordinance allowing the use of ATVs/UTVs on all county roads (Paved or dirt).
Several ski resorts are located within an hour and a half; Monarch Mountain, Ski Cooper (Family Friendly - just about 20 minutes NW of Leadville), Copper Mountain, Beaver Creek, Vail, Keystone, Breckenridge.
Taylor Park, west of Buena Vista, is one of the most beautiful locations in the world; simply cross Cottonwood Pass (in the summer) and enjoy the scenery.
Aspen is located 34 miles west on Highway 82 across Independence Pass (but is generally closed in winter due to snowpack and travel restrictions).
The Colorado Trail has several trailheads just to the South. Refer to: http://www.coloradotrail.org/segments.html
4-Wheel Drive trails are abundant and the trip through Mosquito Pass is unrivalled; Weston Pass offers breathtaking scenery and a little less fear...travel both with caution!
Summer time rafting can be quite exhilarating; several rafting companies headquarter out of Buena Vista and can be found quite easily.
Salida offers a wide variety of outdoor activities and even has a zip line course for the daring! There is also now a new public zip-line north of Leadville just before you climb the hill to the Climax mine.
