                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1989

                      About the owner: We purchased this old boarding house when the boys were little as a place to run and raise our kids in. The boys are grown and off in their careers. We still live here but hope to travel more when the house is rented. We have run it as a B&B for the past 24 years and have lots of great stories and fond memories about the house. Ed has been a carpenter remodeling this home and a stay at home dad while Peri has been a realtor and property manager with her own company the last 18 years. Our oldest son is a hydrologist and avid skier currently living in Utah. Nate, the youngest, is playing Left offensive tackle for the New England Patriots. Leadville has been a great place to live and enjoy the outdoors. We hope you will enjoy our family home.

                      Why the Owner Chose Leadville:
                      We fell in love with the Mountains and wanted to find a way to raise our kids in a small town. We found this diamond in the rough and started our mountain adventure. Kids grew up skiing every weekend on the race team then turned into athletic scholars that took them off to college. We have enjoyed the ebbs and flows of business in a small town and now are looking to semi-retire and travel more. This has been our family home for the last 24 years and is held very dear to each and everyone of us. We have been able to share this splendid home and lifestyle and would like to continue in a different way.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
                      Every room has it's own personality be it the cozy Twin Lakes room with the old fashion mattel and feel to the Grand Tabor suite with the balcony over looking the yard and Mt Elbert in the background. All bedrooms have their own private baths with additional common rooms to gather in. The house was built as a boarding house so there were details considered for noise and placement of rooms so you don't feel like your are on top of each other. The house sits on several lots with gives you more room to feel a little more relaxed. Plenty of porch and decks to enjoy the many sunny days.
