Property description

Large Modern 5 BR Cabin with warm In Floor Heat, Woodstove, and well-stocked kitchen. Cabin Guests Enjoy Exclusive Recreational and Hunting Rights on 700+ Acres Prime Elk, Mule Deer, Antelope, Bear, Coyote, Bobcat, and Mountain Lion Habitat surrounded by Low Pressure Private land. There's also plenty of nearby public hunting and hiking on Little Sheep and Sheep Mountain. This property is a well traveled elk route leading to Muddy Creek.

It's just south of HWY 69 and is located in GMU 85 which has Over-The-Counter Bull Elk tags for 2nd and 3rd rifle seasons and OTC Either-sex Elk Archery tags. A half a mile from our boundary is the Wolf Springs Ranch which requires 19 preference points to draw. Colorado has the largest Elk Population in the Country. In fact there are about twice as many Elk in Colorado than Montana and about as many as New Mexico, Idaho, and Wyoming combined.

Hunting season prices are based on up to 4 hunters. Additional charge for more than 4 hunters. Late Cow Seasons: December and January are based on 2 hunters, with additional charge for more than 2 hunters.

**HUNT GUARANTEE** Anyone who does not fill their tag during a regular Archery or Rifle Season may bring their entire hunting party back for a Late Season Cow Elk Hunt for $995/week.

The property is available year round for Hiking, Scouting, and Horseback riding. It's located just a few miles out of the small town of Gardner, CO which has a General store/Restaurant/Deli, a bar, and some real characters. Gardner is located 30 minutes from I-25 in Walsenburg and 30-40 minutes from the resort town of Westcliffe which offers shopping and many dining options.

The setting is convenient, but secluded. The cabin is located at the base of Apache Ridge. There isn't another house to be seen for miles. There are the Snow capped Sangre de Cristos to the West and the Green Mountains to the North and East. From the top of Apache Ridge, you can see Big Sheep and Little Sheep Mountain. The driveway is over 1 mile long and is a dirt road. If rain or snow is in the forecast, 4WD is required.

Gardner is a historic town originally founded along the stage route from Westcliffe/Silvercliffe to Walsenburg. Some of the newly paved highway 69 is a proposed part of the 'Frontier Pathways Scenic Byway' passing the landmark Gardner Butte just as you come thru town. The entire area was hunting grounds for Apache, Comanche, and Ute Indians with plenty of artifacts and arrowheads remaining. In the 1960's the town became a mecca for hippies. Communes were formed and at least one still exists. Don't miss the annual 'Gardner Days' Music Festival in July.

While we mostly cater to hunters, this property is a great place to get away from the city lights and see the open sky. It's large enough to accomodate family gatherings and there are loads of attractions within an hour's drive.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Cameron is a Real Estate Broker at Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia. He enjoys hunting with his kids in Virginia and traveling to Colorado to hunt. His kids are almost old enough to hunt in Colorado.

Why the Owner Chose Gardner, CO, USA:
We bought this as a secluded getaway and then discovered what prime Elk Hunting Habitat it is. We got the recreational lease on the state land which adjoins the property to give us over 700 Acres of Exclusive Hunting and Recreational rights. Then we formed the 'Elk Haus Cabin' available for rental.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The cabin has all the amenities of home including electricity (which can be rare in this area). Kitchen is fully stocked and has 2 refrigerators, 2 sinks, and a dishwasher. It is 1.5 miles off the hard surface road and secluded w/ amazing mountain views in every direction.
