Why Debbie Gaudin chose Victor
We fell in love with this place when we saw the beautiful house tucked away in a valley with over 40 acres of aspen, blue spruce and open meadows. We enjoy the majestic views of the mountains, the serenity of overlooking Skaguay Reservoir and hiking in one of the prettiest valleys along Beaver Creek. The many custom features of the house were another attraction from the gourmet kitchen, to the spacious living areas, the huge windows and wide wrap around deck for relaxing outdoors.
What makes this House unique
The large wrap around deck affords expansive views of the mountains and lake. At 9,100’ elevation the house is wonderfully comfortable with gentle breezes and low humidity. The house is situated among the aspens with no other houses in view from the front deck which gives the place of sense of calm and serene seclusion. In the mood for a peaceful and quiet place to stay? Then this is the setting. Within walking distance of the house is Skaguay Reservoir and Beaver Creek, which are excellent for fly fishing for trout. There is canoeing and boating on Skaguay Reservoir and hiking, backpacking and camping in one of the prettiest valleys along Beaver Creek. Nearby are lots of activities from gold mine tours, hiking and mountain biking at Mueller State Park (over 5,000 acres of parkland) and horseback riding, exploring scenic byways and historic gold mine towns, white water rafting the Arkansas River, antiquing, shopping and more. The property is only about an hour and fifteen minutes southwest of Colorado Springs.

Sports & Adventure Activities
Beautiful and secluded, amazing scenery
Breathtaking views, wonderful house with everything you will need. Plenty of space for our large group & we came over prepared. The house has basically everything you would have at home, it was perfect!
It is definitely further away from things than we expected. The distances in the description are accurate but given the dirt mountain roads, you drive about 25-30mph. This wasn’t a big let down since we were happy to be secluded and in such a beautiful area.
Skagway Resevoir (the pond in the pictures) was frozen over while we were there and you can see people ice fishing- very cool! We walked out on the ice a bit and had a good time.
We definitely plan to go back. Would recommend this property to anyone looking for a true mountain getaway.
Beautiful and peaceful location!
This was the perfect place to gather our family from around the country for a wedding in Victor CO. We used both homes on the property and had plenty of comfortable accommodations for all 17 of us!
Thank you for choosing our lovely mountain homes, in the sea of colorful and changing Aspens, for your very special occasion!
Beautifully decorated and very cozy home with gorgeous views of the aspens, mountains and lake!
Lots of wildlife, flowers and a thick forrest of aspen trees... It's a gorgeous, peaceful, and relaxing vacation home!
All of the above is true, and then you have the lovely blue lake (Skagway Reservoir) just down the hill that's loaded with all kinds of trout! You've got to check this place out for yourselves. The summer and fall are fabulous times here in the 9,300' altitude!
This is a great home with a spectacular view.
We loved the wraparound deck and the private balcony. Having a washer and dryer was an added bonus. The kitchen was well appointed.
September brings out all those gorgeous colors of fall in the aspens all over this property. If you love looking at greens, oranges, and yellows you need to come here!
There was plenty of room for the family the house was beautiful and the view was breathtaking. My family and I had a wonderful time and highly recommend this rental
We are delighted in having families here and making marvelous memories in these majestic mountains!
This home is fantastic! Everything is perfect. The house has it all. Every detail has been very well thought of. All you need to bring is your food. Everything else is already pretty much provided. There was plenty of room for our family, six adults, two children under age seven and a six month old. The big wrap around porch was a favorite of the the children. The view is fantastic. If you prefer a quite, secluded and scenic place to stay at, then this is your place. We got to meet the owners of the home and they are wonderful Christian people.
Having a family reunion? We also have the spectacular Upper Lake House (sleeps 8) just walking distance up the hill from Aspen Lake House! Scenic Byways, Gold mine tours, Eagle Outlook, Picnicing, Pikes Peak, Mueller State Park, Cripple Creek/Victor Narrow Gage Railroad, Phantom Canyon Road, Shelf Road, High Park Road, Gold Camp Road
