Lake City cabin description
This home sits on one acre with a fabulous front view 2nd to none in the area. Modern but rustic as a mountain home should be. Master bedroom with king size bed, fireplace, television, bunkbeds, deck facing mountain view, 2 additional bedrooms newly remodeled with queen beds, each with a Pak and Go available for babies. Full bathroom upstairs and down. Queen sleeper couch in living room. Living room has fireplace, pellet stove, 46' LCD television with Directv and Blu-ray DVD player. Computer with Wi-Fi to stream free movies. Washer and Dryer. 10 foot oversized picnic table for outdoor dining. Gas grill. Sit on the deck and just watch the world go by as the deer, bear, marmots, chipmunks, coyotes, blue jays and rabbits stroll/fly by observing you.
Short walk from town and many opportunities to play and enjoy the great outdoors. A 10-15 minute walk puts you in the heart of Lake City where you can dine, shop, go to theaters, play in the park, or enjoy worship at one of 4 churches. Many local events like bingo and guided historic walks await you.
Some of the best 4 wheel drive roads in the state await your exploration. The Alpine Loop is one of the most scenic drives in the state. Slumgullion Pass to Creede is to die for beauty in the fall for Aspen viewing, not that it isn't wonderful in the summer. ATV's and trail bikes have endless opportunities to see new locales.
If Lake San Cristobal is to large for you, there are a multitude of small lakes to hike to to test your fishing prowess, or to just enjoy while picnicking.

The house was more than the listing shows. The property manager met all our needs. She was great! I had a family of 8 fit just fine Plenty of room to sleep and eat. The table had room for 8.2 coffee pots were great for our size group. The wildlife is abundant. We hand fed a group of marmots.The neighbor to the north loves showing them off. The deer in the area are almost tame. I believe the wildlife would come right in the cabin if you let them. The ghost of Carson was our favorite outing. You must rent a jeep to get there, or have 4wd. We also spent a lot of time at Deer lakes watching the moose. I recommend this listing to anyone staying in Lake City. I plan to stay again next year.

My husband and I spent a week at the cabin and absolutely loved it. It is so comfortable and close to everything- groceries, hiking, great food, 4x4 trails, 14ers, Gunnison, Creede, etc. It truly felt like a home away from home! Thanks!!!

This place was perfect! Had a rustic feel, but all the comforts of home. My wife and I used this cabin as a hub for Jeeping and hiking for a week. It was great to come home exausted every night to a clean, comfortable place to put our feet up and watch the ball game. It's a short walk to all the resturaunts in Lake City. The Lake City Bakery is a block away for breakfast in the mornings too! The floors and furniture have been updated since these pictures were taken. I have already recommend this place to two friends.

My family of 9 stayed the first week of June. The cabin has all the amenities of home and more- deer and marmots in the yard, hummingbirds in the air. A short walk or bike ride into town for ice cream, candy, restaurants and great bakery. Fishing and moose watching at nearby Deer Lakes. We had a wonderful time. Thank you so much!

About: Retired 'Papa' and Grandma of six kids and eight grand-kids. 'Papa is a retired Denver Public Schools administrator and Grandma is a systems support specialist with the Postal Service. All our kids virtually grew up spending their summers in Lake City living in this home and have gone on to successful careers in Colorado and each still gets to the cabin several times a year. My new grand-daughters sitting in front of the fireplace giggling make it all worth while. Many happy memories of all seasons for our family at this wonderful home away from home. I hope you'll leave with family memories of your own.
Why Lake City:
Great Views from the front decks, great fishing, hiking, 4-wheeling, snow activities, hunting, and adventurous activities. Close to charming, historic Lake City, yet in forested area. Room to spread out without neighbors right on top of you. Comfortable walking and biking distance to town and all it's amenities.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
1 acre property for kids to roam and play safely. Short 10 minute walk to the Lake Fork River or short hike to trail head to three secluded lakes. Lake San Cristobal, the 2nd largest natural lake in the state is only 5 miles away for boating, fishing, and swimming for the brave at heart!
