About the Property
Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft + Office, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)
The kitchen is fully equipped including cookware, mixer, dishes, crockpot, pancake griddle, dishwasher, trash compater, and a warming drawer. The new gas grill is just outside the double glass doors leading from the kitchen to the deck. The intimate dining room will seat 6 - 8 people with additional seating for two at the granite-topped island.
The master suite has double glass doors leading to a deck overlooking the river and a lovely new king-sized mattress (January 2014). The private bath has double sinks with a tub/shower with a glass door. The art glass window provides a wonderful mountain breeze.
The upstairs bedroom with queen bed and private balcony affords magnificent views of the river and canyon. The second upstairs bedroom has a queen bed with views of the town. Between the two bedrooms is a spacious, shared bath with doors from each bedroom. Each bedroom has a huge walk-in closet as well. This larged, shared bath has double pedestal sinks separated by a granite top vanity. The tub/shower combination with glass doors and toilet are in a separate room. These two upstairs bedrooms lead into the large loft furnished with a rustic-but-new pool table with a catwalk leading to an electronic Yamaha keyboard. All beds have heated mattress pads, and there is central heat for your comfort as well.
The upstairs bedrooms were designed to have naturally circulating air. What this means is that each of the two upstairs bedrooms have 20 foot vaulted ceilings, and the air from the two rooms escapes upward. And the center wall of each of the rooms is 9 feet tall. However, part of the ceiling of each of the two rooms is open so that air escapes and naturally circulates with all of the air in the home. This creates a natural, circulating air system that keeps the temperatures extremely comfortable. Although these two rooms are side-by-side, there are two closets and a bathroom separating them. Because of the design (and ceiling fans in both upstairs rooms and two over the loft), even snoring & conversation can generally not even be detected outside of your bedroom.
There is ample parking for multiple vehicles including an RV area with both 30 and 50 amp service and a carport. A lockable 180 sq foot storage room off the carport gives you ample space to safely store bicycles, coolers, and sporting gear out of the weather. There are 5 bicyles (including a child's bike) and an air pump for your enjoyment.
The upstairs loft with skylights and mountain-view windows is stocked with Monopoly, puzzles, cards, UNO, Phase 10, Skipbo, and a collection of various novels. This is a great getaway area to spend undisturbed time on a puzzle or enjoy a book in the comfortable chair with your feet up on the ottoman. The new 46' Sony Bravia LCD television in the great room has a PlayStation 3 with 2 controllers that plays both traditional CD and Blue Ray discs (bring your own games or extra controllers for hours of fun!).
The laundry room is equipped with washer, dryer, ironing board, iron and clothes rack. Laundry detergent is also supplied.
With the cabin situated in the old historic district, you are within a few blocks of the downtown area, post office, multiple eating establishments, churches, town parks, coffee shops, post office, fly fishing shop, quaint shops, visitors' center, movie theater, and new state-of-the-art medical center. So relaxing to just to keep your car parked and watch the fawns frolic through town!
The town of Creede (outstanding theater in the summer, restaurants, shopping art galleries, excellent fly fishing & guides) is about an hour to the south, and the larger ski-towns of Gunnison (50 miles to the north) and Crested Butte (1 1/2 hours north) are fun day trips with river rafting (check out Taylor River in Gunnison), restaurants (Garlic Mike's in Gunnison), and many speciality shops. The coffee bistro and Colorado-style Mexican food at Donita's in Crested Butte are family favorites. All three of these small towns--Gunnsion, Creede, and Crested Butte are easy day trips from Lake City. For those wanting a national park experience, a day hike through the Black Canyon of the Gunnison is guaranteed not to disappoint.
You'll be sure to thoroughly enjoy your stay in this picturesque mountain town which is truly a step back in time.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Enjoy fly fishing along the riverfront or taking a 5-minute walk to one of the local coffee shops for an afternoon mocha. And the old fashioned ice cream parlor has the best ice cream, milk shakes, and banana splits in Colorado. An early morning hike to the base of Uncompahgre Peak (fourteener), fly fishing lessons, and hikes to the waterfalls of Cataract Gulch (past Lake San Cristobal) are our favorite memories.
