About the Property
Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
The cabin sits on 10 acres of forested land on the upper slope of a mountain overlooking Hahn’s Peak to the east and Wyoming and the Continental Divide to the north. The drive up to the cabin from 129 takes about 10 minutes and weaves through aspen and pine forests. The road is not paved so while sedans do drive up there, a car with adequate ground clearance is suggested.
The views are stunning: you can occasionally see hikers climbing Hahn’s Peak, and during thunderstorms in Wyoming you can see the sheet lightening illuminating the clouds and mountains in the distance. There is nothing quite like it. If you want to stay in the valleys of the Steamboat area, don’t stay here; this is true mountain living at its best. You look down at the world from here, not up.
Located on a private road used mostly in the winter by cross-country skiers, you will find total privacy and quiet: no cars whizzing by. Three bedrooms are located downstairs: two with queen sized beds and one with a double bed, plus two full bathrooms, one with an over-sized bathtub. On the main floor is a huge living room/dining room and kitchen surrounded on two sides by walls of windows. The dining room table sits 8 plus there is a second table that can join to it and add two more for a total of 10 seats at the table. An efficient wood stove is available for cold mornings, though the sun warms the place quickly. A circular staircase takes you up to a large sleeping loft with two beds and several Japanese futons. A large deck with cushioned patio chairs and a table sits outside the living room on the Hahn’s Peak side of the cabin. A large BBQ grill on the patio is available for your use. There is also a a fire circle just below the house that can be used to grill food (or marshmallows!) outside on cool evenings.
Games such as Pictionary, chess, checkers, Monopoly, Global Pursuit, backgammon and others are stacked on shelves in the living room. A stereo system with CDs, books, and a small selection of some very difficult puzzles are also available, plus a large chest full of children’s toys and art supplies up in the loft. This is an artist’s residence so you are surrounded with antiques from Asia and South America as well as paintings and other artworks.
Within a few miles you will find Pearl Lake, Steamboat Lake, Hahn’s Peak Lake, hiking galore, and Hahn’s Peak village for restaurants, a gas station, and other amenities. The Hahn’s Peak area is known for fishing, hunting, waterskiing and boating, biking and mountain biking, horse back riding, ATV tours, and of course, viewing wildlife.
A 5 minute walk back through the woods gives you a view of Steamboat Lake, Pearl Lake, Hahn’s Peak Village, and Steamboat Mountain in the distance.
Steamboat Springs is a well known skiers paradise, but is even more popular in the summer for its weekly rodeo, hot air ballooning, craft shows, music festivals, river rafting, fishing, biking as well as numerous restaurants and interesting gift shops.

Year Purchased: 1986
About: We live on Guam, a small island in the Pacific Ocean east of the Philippines. Gyongyi is an associate professor for the University of Maryland in Asia: Guam campus. She teaches Marine Biology and related sciences. Frank is administrator for a medical clinic. We have two daughters and three grands. We have spent every summer and a few Christmas's at our cabin since we built it in 1986. This photo is us with our one grandchild: Cali.
Why Clark, CO, USA:
We purchased the 10 acres sight unseen with my mother. When we first visited the property and sat on the one small clearing where the original owner (a friend of my mother's) suggested a house would have the best view, we were totally unprepared for the beauty around us: it is the polar opposite of our home in Guam. We decided on the spot to build a log cabin, a large one to accommodate all 5 of us, and did so the following summer. Each year since then we improved the house by adding a huge sleeping loft for guests, hardwood floors and other features.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Although Guam may seem to most a small place, in comparison it is a busy, cosmopolitan island with traffic, many people (OK, only about 170,000 :o). Going to our cabin each summer was a breath of fresh air, not to mention NO WORK! :-) We never put in a satellite dish for TV on purpose to allow us to do other things with our time. Once we arrive in our mountain cabin, that is as far as we go: friends and family come to stay with us. It is a place to gather for our far flung family from all over the states, other parts of Asia and Europe. It is our place of refuge, and party place, all in one.
