Property description

This 35-acre property includes a grand log chalet situated at 8900 feet above sea level.

The top floor, one large room with a vaulted ceiling, boasts picture windows facing the Gore Range. The wood burning stove generously heats this level. A propane furnace provides additional heat for the whole house. The living room area has several couches (one of which is a sofa-sleeper) and a sky chair. The dining table seats 10 people. The kitchen is large and well equipped with counter space for preparing sizable meals. There is also a half-bathroom on this floor.

On the middle level there are four bedrooms, which sleep 8 (2 queens, 1 double and a bunk bed). There is a full bathroom with shower/bathtub on this floor.

This is a kid friendly property equipped with toys, books, movies, entertainment system with satellite radio and a ping-pong table.

A large solar system provides most of the heat and hot water for a reduced carbon footprint. There is propane and electricity for the utilities. Laundry facilities are available on the bottom level if needed.

The deck wraps around 2/3 of the upper level for sunbathing, bird watching, sunrise and sunset viewing. There is a propane grill on the deck for convenient outdoor cooking. In addition, you can enjoy meals on the deck at a wooden picnic table. Just below the house is a fire ring and additional picnic table for cookouts.

From the hammock on the deck you can view the Gore Range, Green Mountain Reservoir, and the Williams Fork Range. Deer, elk, and fox are common visitors. Nightfall brings stargazing and the occasional coyote chorus. Songbirds, hummingbirds, eagles, and hawks are often seen.

In winter, the chalet's location is ideal for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and excellent sledding. Alpine skiing and snowboarding are available at Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, Keystone and A-Basin, all within an hour. Vail, Steamboat Springs, and Winter Park are each about 2 hours away.There is Gold Medal fishing on the Colorado and Blue Rivers, and belly-boating on Cataract Lake. The chalet is surrounded by aspens, so the fall is an exceptional time to visit. There is access to various wilderness areas for sportsmen looking for a comfortable base.

Lower Cataract Lake is a short drive away during the summer months. When there is snow, it can be reached with snowshoes or cross-country skis via the road. A number of trail-heads begin in that area for day hikes or camping. The wild flowers are spectacular in spring and summer and the aspen foliage is golden in the fall. The cataract itself is also worth exploring.
The location is solitary, serene and private on 35 acres of woodland and sage brush meadows with wildlife as your nearest neighbors.

Well behaved pets are welcome.

Please don't smoke inside.

This is a perfect property for a small family get-together or a place to return to after a day of hiking, fishing or hunting.

Winter access can be more difficult even with with snow plowing, so contact us directly for more information.

Rates vary seasonally, so please contact us through the VRBO site for specifics about your stay

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1980

About the owner: We designed and built this chalet, using standing dead lodge pole logs. Our 4 children grew up using this place many times a year, summer and winter. We are now retired, and the children are married and living scattered around the country. We come here about twice a month, bringing our dog and 2 cats with us.

Why the Owner Chose Silverthorne, CO, USA:
We built the chalet as our vacation retreat, and now would like to share it with others.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Solitude, serenity, love of the mountains, and enjoyment of the wildlife.
