About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

High atop Reva Ridge, lofting over mountains, water, and sky stands the retreat at STARVUE LODGE. Far from city lights, this is a place where even Colorado natives marvel at one of the most dramatic views from a home in Colorado and in all of North America. The central location is close to Leadville, a short drive to Aspen (in the summer), Vail, Beaver Creek, Silverthorne, Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, Ski Cooper, Salida, and Buena Vista. After years of searching, we hand-picked the land as 'the' perfect place to build a log cabin in Colorado. With 360 degree views of the highest mountains in the Colorado Rockies, this home was originally built as our family summer retreat and is now welcoming guests and their dogs from around the world.

This home is managed by Black Wolf Lodging which gives you many advantages over other properties. First, 10% off rafting trips this spring and summer plus 10% off snowmobile tours in the winter. Next, you are checked in personally by a local, someone who lives in and knows Twin Lakes. We can answer your questions about what to see and do, what is open at that time of year and where the favorite hideaways are that only locals know. In the winter we have access to unknown snowshoe and snowmobile trails and in the summer we can tell you what the local trail conditions are and about the best photo opportunities. Mostly though, we are in the neighborhood 24/7 to assist you with any problems that may arise, not hours away and potentially unreachable. Finally we have access to specials like discounted lift tickets and raft trips that others don’t offer. Black Wolf Lodging, the only locally owned and operated vacation home rental business in Twin Lakes.

Great for couples, families, company retreats, or those wanting a motivating place to write a screenplay, novel or launch the next high-tech company. StarVue Lodge features a 'great' great room, 'mountain-overlooking' master suite, 'motivational' office and library loft, and wrap around porches facing south and west. A separate downstairs quarters features a large bedroom, bath, and family room complete with the most dramatic walk out basement in the world...seriously.

When our family vacations here, we typically plan days around hikes and canoeing in the lake and over to the ghost town for lunch, climbing the local mountains, dinners in Twin Lakes Village, day trips to Aspen, Vail, or Breckenridge, exploring Leadville, and rafting or hot spring trips within a 30 minute drive.

Here, the nights are truly special. The name StarVue comes from both the unimaginable view of the stars, as many as can be seen in the world without a telescope and clear and crisp as if they were a hundred miles away AND the view of Star Mountain nestled between two of the tallest mountains in America. In fact, the master bedroom was designed so that you can watch the stars as you go to sleep.

Location

Off the beaten track, heading up to the local Gold mine, bike the Colorado Trail, train for a race, write a novel, or rock skipping (really, at the lake, its a highlight). Going to the quaint towns of Leadville, Buena Vista, or Salida. Two hot springs within 30 minutes, driving over pass on the most beautiful road in America to Aspen for breakfast or lunch or bike riding. Being AWAY from big cities and busy ski towns. Watching the Stars which show in the billions.

Please be advised - Reva Ridge Rd does not allow dirt bikes or ATVs
