Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: My wife, five kids and I love Colorado and especially enjoy hiking and exploring new places.
Why the Owner Chose Florissant: I grew up coming to this part of Colorado. I spent many summer nights camping in 11 mile canyon, about 15 minutes from Silent Creek. I've always loved coming to the mountains to enjoy the outdoors. Then, eleven years ago, my wife and I decided to move up to this beautiful area, making it our home year-round. Now we're excited to turn it in to a vacation rental for others to enjoy.
The Unique Benefits at this House: One of the things we fell in love with was the wildlife. We have had up to 20 deer grazing on the property and have even listened to the howls of animals at night or seen a black bear lumbering through the trees below our home. We also love the peaceful, star-filled nights as we sit out on our deck talking. When the sun goes down, often the only things we hear are the wind and an occassional fox looking for food. Not only did we fall in love with the nature up here, but we love our home. We're far enough out that it really feels like a Colorado mountain escape, but close enough to fun outdoor activities.
