About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Nestled in spruce and aspen trees, this cozy log home is perfect for your summer getaway. It is secluded, yet very accessible year round. Every window in the house has a beautiful view of the 14,000 foot mountains surrounding Lake City. Relax on the back porch that runs the length of the house while listening to the roar of the Argenta Falls waterfall off the back of the property.

The quaint town of Lake City is only four miles away, while beautiful Lake San Cristobal is within walking distance of only 1/2 miles. Public fishing is plentiful around Lake City if you want to fish for trout in the streams or lake. We have easy access to the Alpine Loop and you can drive straight from our house on your ATVs.

The cabin has 2 bedrooms and one bath with an open floor plan upstairs, plus a mother-in-law efficiency apartment downstairs. Each level is complete with a bath, full kitchen and washer/dryer.

Lake City is a small, beautiful little town nestled in the San Juan Mountains. It is rich with lots of wildlife, including deer, elk, bighorn sheep, and moose. Most visitors enjoy either fly fishing in the streams or fishing at Lake San Cristobal. Many love to use their ATV vehicles to explore the Alpine Loop that runs to Quray and Silverton and back. Picnicing in the beautiful summer weather is another favorite. Sitting on our back patio and looking at the beautiful star-filled sky makes you realize you are away from the city.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: The mountains have been a part of our entire married life. Gail vacationed always in Colorado as a child growing up and still remembers trips that were made by her family in Lake City. After renting for several years, we finally 'stumbled upon' our lovely cabin at Argenta Falls. We absolutely love the peace and solitude as well as the beauty. Being so close to the Falls makes sitting on the back porch serene, and a walk to Lake San Cristobal gives us the opportunity to view one of the most beautiful lakes in Colorado. We are still working, so we are happy to share our home with others who love Lake City as we do. Alvie & Gail Burdine, Arlington, Texas

Why the Owner Chose Lake City, CO, USA:
We loved the Falls, the private feel of the property, and the back porch and patio.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Private Falls that only visitors can access. Listening to the Falls from the outside of the cabin is very calming and just what is needed versus the city traffic and noise. Also, Argenta Falls was declared to be one of the outstanding water falls in Colorado before it became private. Our visitors can view it.
