Lake George cabin description

Located in the center of Colorado on the Tarryall Heritage Tour Route, this 1907 homestead Ranch is a paradise like no other. Secluded & quiet.
The homestead ranch has a main log cabin house with a loft bedroom and full bath. The living room has a 2 story ceiling with views to the north featuring Bison Peak and X Rock, a sacred campsite to the Native Americans in the early days. The dining room has a full view of the Tarryall Mountains with Hankins Pass to the south. The Brookside Mccurdy trail is just out the back gate for easy access to the Lost Creek Wilderness Area. McCurdy Park is the source for the water in our half acre beaver pond teeming with trout.
The kitchen has a restored Garland 6 burner gas stove from the Florissant Schoolhouse & a Great Majestic wood stove.
The guest log cabin, Cloud 9, is a studio with bath, Monarch woodstove, gas cooktop and fireplace.
Both bathrooms have bathtubs with hand held shower.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1968

                  About the owner: Growing up in Chicago, Jim traveled west to ski & attend Colorado College. In summer he spent weekends on the Tarryall with the Sprague family on fishing trips where they had a cabin. Jim & Steve Sprague were college buddies. EJ was a passionate fly fisherperson & Marshall was a western author and journalist. (Newport In The Rockies, Money Mountain, The Great Gates). Jim fell in love with the Tarryalls and bought the Rolling OM Ranch near the Sprague's. Jim met Stephanie in Berkeley during the 60's, where she grew up and went to San Francisco State. They returned to Colorado as part of the back to the land movement where their 2 children were born at the Rolling OM Ranch. During those years they embraced the emerging evnironmental and sustainable lifestyle with milk goats, chickens and an enormous vegitable garden. They raised native grass hay & Appaloosa's for pack trips into the Lost Creek Wilderness. Jim and Stephanie now divide their time between the ranch, their other vacation property on Upper Klamath Lake in Oregon, or their sailboat back in Berkeley

                  Why the Owner Chose Lake George:
                  Location, location, location. At the end of the road & top of the Hay Creek watershed one experiences premier, world class blue ribbon fishing, hiking, rock climbing, birding, wildlife viewing, stargazing, art & photo opportunities & more. A world apart from all the hustle & bustle yet in close proximity to the Colorado Front Range cities & big mountain skiing in Breckenridge both just over an hour away. The serene valley has attracted Disney photographers, Wildlife authors, Buddhist meditators, Yoga practitioners, artists, musicians and mountaineers for a serious retreat. At the end of the road and surrounded by Pike national Forest and Lost Park Wilderness your complete privacy is assured.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  Stunning views of Hankins Pass & Bison Peak. Surrounded by Pike National Forest & Lost Creek Wilderness. Pure springwater for drinking at the headwaters of Hay Creek. Prime breeding and lambing habitat for one of Colorado's largest herds of Bighorn Sheep.
