About the Property
House, 6 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 12)
The river is strictly fly fishing, catch and release (additional fee passes required) on 1¼ miles of stream bordered by some willows winding through irrigated hay meadows in a gently rolling valley bottom. You will hear coyotes and owls at night as you star gaze at a sky where you will clearly see the Milky Way and more stars than you knew existed. There is an outdoor fireplace to keep you warm and for roasting marshmallows. After just a day or two you will feel like you have finally gotten that long-needed rest. As your cares melt away you will see the world in a whole new light - come visit and discover!
It's an easy 85 mile drive South West of Denver or 60 miles North West of Colorado Springs. Ask for directions when you make your reservation.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

The property backs up to wilderness and national forest. Tarryall Reservoir is a 5 minute drive away and 11 Mile and Spinney Reservoirs' are close by. Fairplay and its restaurants and old historic town is about a 45 min drive, Cave of the Winds near Colo Springs, Buena Vista and nearby hot springs.
Year Purchased: 1982
About: The owner is a geologist who enjoys all the rock formations in the area. The ranch was purchased as a retreat from a work life of international travel and long hours. It has been a life saver. The picture, taken circa 2007 is of owner's daughter and friend.
Why Lake George, CO, USA:
We bought property in this location because it is close enough to Denver to go for a short weekend and yet it is secluded enough that you really feel you have gotten away. It is a wonderful site for family reunions, weddings and small company retreats.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have always enjoyed the fishing and hunting - both are first class. We have gone many years without buying beef. Our children have enjoyed years of fun in the outdoors with their friends. We used to give them each a dollar and they would walk a mile or so to the country store to buy candy. That kept them busy and out of our hair! They also spent hours playing in the river. Now they come and bring their children and teach them the same love of the outdoors that they have.
