About Steve White


Steve White purchased this house in 2005

Why Steve White chose Southwest

This property was purchased in Hinsdale County (90% public lands, little development) offering a true mountain setting and natural environment experience. There are numerous trails for hiking up to the 14,000 ft. mountains and many off road atv and jeep trails. The Alpine Loop (Cinnamon Pass elevation = 12,640 ft and Engineer Pass elevation 12,815 ft) scenery is equal to Trail Ridge Rd. in Rocky Mt. National Park except there are relatively few people on the Alpine Loop.

What makes this house unique

The nature trail runs along the south side of the property leading to the river walk over the pedestrian bridge, the river runs approximately 175 ft. in front of the house. The grocery store, Post Office, gas station & atv / snowmobile rentals are within 3 blocks of the property; downtown Lake City 10-15 minutes walking time.

Neat vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 adults and 4 kids stay for a week in this house this summer. It was perfect! The 3 levels have each family the right amount of space. The house was clean and if we forgot anything, the house supplied it. The view was gorgeous and the very short walk to the river kept the kids entertained as well as the deer who came by to say hi. I recommend this property for a relaxing mountain getaway.

We stayed at this house for a week with daughter, son-in-law and grandkids. We absolutely loved it. Perfect location. Kitchen and laundry room were well appointed. Beds were very comfortable and bathrooms were roomy. Wifi worked well. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect for Us

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed four times at this house. It is roomy and convenient. All of our Lake City area activities can be conducted from here. The house is located in a subdivision close to Lake City, and traffic isn't too noisy. It's a short walk into town on a path and over a cool bridge that crosses the river. Staying here is easy. At the front entry, we can take off our boots, and hang coats. Immediately on the left is the laundry room where dirty clothes can be deposited. The kitchen has all of the implements necessary to cook. There is a large gas grill on the covered back porch that works. There are plenty of windows with screens to allow in fresh air. We had to work on our computers sometimes, and the internet worked fine. Our son and his wife stayed with us, and there was enough privacy for us all. We could drink coffee on the porch in the morning, and see deer strolling around. We plan to be back again for a fifth stay.

Lake City is Our Happy Place!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this house for a week with my husband, my son, his wife, and their two children. The location is perfect, just a minute or two out of town, and within walking distance to the river. The house was just what we needed. We loved being able to use the grill, the fire pit, and especially seeing seven different deer from the porch! The house had plenty of space to relax, spread out and sleep, cook, and play games. We hope to stay here again next summer!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a month this summer and had a wonderful time. The house has everything that one needs for a comfortable stay and is located convenient to the walking trails into town. The neighborhood is quiet and the view from the back porch very pleasant. It is so nice to be able to walk to town, the market, park and not have to get in one's car.

We have been coming to Lake City for vacations for over 30 years and have stayed in many different places. We would definitely stay here again.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house for a large group/more than one family. 3 separate floors, all with bedrooms so it was perfect for splitting up girls and boys and adults. Plenty of beds and space for all! Beautiful location and only a short walk into the town.
