Elk Meadows house description

This home is located high in the mountains above Ridgway, Colorado. Though just ten minutes from town, you will feel like you have escaped from it all in this amazing mountain retreat. Catch a glimpse of amazing wildlife including deer, elk, grouse and turkeys all from the comfort of the deck.

The house is best understood by imagining a floorplan. The top (3rd) floor of the home includes a master bedroom with a king size bed, a full bath, and a private balcony. The large room also includes a crib, a rocking chair, and a dresser for guest use.

Also on the this floor is the loft bedroom with a king size bed, a high-grade telescope for star-gazing, an art easel with paper, paints and brushes included, and a second private balcony.

The 2nd floor has two distinct areas: The north side houses two bedrooms, one with a full bed and the other with twin bunk beds. A full bath is located between the two bedrooms. A washer and dryer and fully stocked linen closet are located in this area.

The south side of this floor includes an open floor plan living room, dining area, bar, and kitchen. The living room is the perfect place to socialize while using the array of books, games, and toys included in the rental and conveniently located on bookshelves. The dining room includes a large table with seating for eight. The kitchen is completely stocked with all the essential dishes, cookware, utensils and equipment needed to cook at home as well as basic pantry items. A bar with seating for four faces the kitchen making the perfect spot for breakfast or to socialize while cooking.

Sliding glass doors open off of this area to a large deck where there is another dining room table with seating for six, an outdoor living room furniture set, and a large gas grill. Lounge on this deck surrounded by quaking aspens and enjoy the wildlife!

The bottom floor is divided in half. The first half is devoted to an exercise facility including an elliptical, a stationary bicycle, a weight bench and an assortment of other home gym essentials.

The other half of this floor is dominated by a home theater including a 72' HDTV, DVD player, and raised theater seats. This floor also has a full bath.

The many amenities in this rental don't end at the door. Challenge your friends to a round of horseshoes on the regulation size horseshoe pits. A variety of other outdoor games are also included in the rental. And after dark the bonfire pit is the perfect place to gather.

And if the house itself doesn't keep your whole family happy, there is plenty of nearby hiking, mountain-biking, swimming, exploring, rock-climbing, skiing, and more!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: In our first years of dating and marriage, we traveled a lot. We lived in a number of vastly different places both in the United States and abroad. Although we loved many of the places we lived, this was the first place we wanted to stay. This was the place we wanted to raise a family. So we bought a house and stayed. And we have not regretted it once.

Why the Owner Chose Elk Meadows:
This is our family home where we have raised our children. It is a place to go to find peace and quiet and to reconnect with nature. It is also the perfect place to spend time with good friends. The home has a unique combination of communal areas that make socializing easy while also having lots of spaces and places to enjoy alone time.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our family lives in this community and we have local's insight. We are available throughout your stay to answer questions about the house or to point you in the right direction when it comes to exploring the best that Southwestern Colorado has to offer.
