About the owner: Hi, Henry and I (Robin) have lived in Colorado for 25 years and love the Rocky Mountains. It has been a wonderful place to raise our kids. We have explored many of the attractions here and there are things for all ages to enjoy! When we moved to Colorado, we could hardly wait until our children were old enough to explore with us. When their grandparents retired here, they began teaching them how to fish for trout at the Rampart Range Reservoir. Being able to catch their limit has never been an issue! We hope that you take the time to come to Colorado to relax, have fun and make some great memories!
Why the Owner Chose Divide:
We spent a lot of time looking for a special place to get away and relax. When we found this property, we fell in love with the lakes, views and wildlife. Each time we have stayed here we have had deer come into the backyard early morning and evening. Having a place large enough for our immediate and extended family was important in case we wanted to get away to celebrate a special occasion. This mountain home's layout lends itself to privacy for more than one family. Be ready for a photo opportunity when driving to the house because elk herds frequent the area! Perhaps you will see the Magpie bird babies that nest (in the Spring) in the pine tree near the master bedroom window. Pack a picnic lunch and sit by the lake to watch the American White Pelican's as they migrate through the mountains. Drop a fishing line in the lake and catch a trout (we provide the poles and tackle)!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Enjoy the view of the trees that surround this home on the front porch or back deck. Relax and unwind in the lodge-style furnishings. There are so many things to do in this area including, hiking, fishing, hunting, snowshoeing, driving up to Cripple Creek, Woodland Park, Pikes Peak, Manitou Springs or Colorado Springs to explore!
