Property description

Experience a thrilling view of the magnificent San Juan Mountains and the rushing Lake Fork of the Gunnison River from a cabin on a prime mountainside location 1.5 miles north of Lake City off of Highway 149. Reside in a serene mountain atmosphere on an acre of natural shrubs, trees, native flowers and boulders, with an abundance of wildlife. Enjoy the comfort of a 1550 square foot, 1½ story cabin plus a lower story (additional 800 square feet) with a game and laundry room. Relax on log furniture i.e. swing, rocker, and chairs, under the covered front porch plus enjoy viewing the magnificent mountains and meadow and listening to the rushing river from the wrap around deck on the north side.

Guests can conveniently work with Wi Fi Internet connections, and the study and master bedroom both have desks. One can assemble puzzles on the aspen log dining table or round den coffee table. The totally renovated modern kitchen is fully equipped with baking and cooking ware (electric grill, coffee maker, crock pot, mix master, rice cooker, toaster/baking oven, all sizes of pots/pans/corningware, hand mixer, mixing bowls, baking sheets, pie/cake pans, etc.) with spices of all kinds and has a refrigerator with in-door water dispenser and lower freezer drawer; has a trash compactor, dish washer, microwave, electric ceramic cook top stove, and sink disposal. The open dining area has a hutch and aspen log furniture with an 8' dining table and chairs for 10 people. Adjacent to this area is the living area with matching couches, large round coffee table, satellite TV, and a pellet stove, which warms the area in the winter. From the living area, one can view through 1 1/2 story cathedral windows to see a panoramic view of the meadow, rushing river, and magnificent mountains in the landscape.

The three bedrooms are on the main floor, with the master bedroom on one end of the living area, and it has a king sleep number bed, 2 night stands with lamps, desk & chair, and a spacious walk-in closet. The adjacent private bathroom has a blow dryer, double sinks and a shower. The other two bedrooms and bath are on the opposite end of the living area. The second bedroom has a twin bed with trundle, which can be raised to make into a queen bed. Additionally, the room has a chest and dresser; the third bedroom has a night stand, chest, and twin top and double bottom bunk beds. The second bathroom adjoins the two bedrooms and has a tub/shower with sliding glass doors. A staircase leads to the 180 square foot loft with spacious sleeping quarters. Available in the loft are two double beds, two single beds, and a futon, which can be made into a queen bed. The loft view overlooks the living and dining areas and captures the outside panoramic view of the magnificent mountains through the 1½ story cathedral glass windows.

Guests have the convenience of a laundry room in the basement, which has a washer, dryer, folding table, clothes steamer (complimentary detergent for one-two wash loads). The tankless water heater allows for hot water on demand. Also in the basement is a game room with a TV monitor & VCR/DVD player, 2 couches, table to play games, piano keyboard, and an outside door to a covered (deck above) patio area with a concrete floor and patio benches. One can view, from this area as well as from the deck above,
the magnificent mountains and deer which graze on the flora. One can see either through the 1 1/2 story cathedral windows or from the wrap-around deck to enjoy a stunning panoramic view of the meadow, rushing river, and magnificent mountains. On the deck, families can enjoy cooking on the gas grill, eating on two picnic tables, and sitting in lawn chairs while watching the rising and setting sun and moon as well as observing hummingbirds, wildlife, and the baby birds being fed in the spring.

Parking is available for multiple vehicles. Additionally, guests have a variety of activities available to them. The cabin comes equipped with an assortment of games and puzzles for rainy day entertainment. In the Lake City area, they may hike one of the fourteeners, fish in a river or lake, ride ATVs/jeeps on the Alpine Loop, go white water rafting, hunt game in the fall, be involved during August History Month with activities each weekend, i.e. horse stick rodeo, attend Wine & Music Festival in September, attend the Hot Air Balloon Festival in February, dine at various restaurants, enjoy gourmet coffee in the coffee houses, tour old mines, shop in the specialty stores, or ski and snowmobile in the winter months. Vacationers can also visit the college town of Gunnison 55 miles north; the mining town of Creede, which is the art capital of Colorado, 50 miles to the south; or travel to Silverton and Ouray via Cinnamon and Engineer’s Passes (four wheel drive required).

We welcome you to our cabin to enjoy and be involved in the beautiful, scenic Colorado amenities.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Sherrie Vandiver lives in Bedford, TX and has two daughters and son-in-laws and five granddaughters. The Taylor family of four lives in San Marcos, CA, and the Jensen family of five lives in San Diego, CA.

Why the Owner Chose Lake City, CO, USA:
Ed and Syllrene Vandiver from Hobbs, NM built a cabin in Lake City in 1968 for their family of three children and seven grandchildren. Sherrie Vandiver, one daughter in the family, purchased the Elk Road cabin 43 years later to continue her parents' legacy for her family of two daughters and son-in-laws and five granddaughters. Thus, family reunions and July 4th gatherings will be enjoyed and passed on from one generation to another as Lake City memories.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The families enjoy jeeping, river fly fishing, pond/lake fishing, attending Camp Red Cloud, horseback riding, hiking the fourteeners, white river rafting, watching the wild life, attending the theaters, playing miniature golf, Christmas caroling, entering July 4th races, and having picnics all around the Lake City area. The five granddaughters build forts on the cabin's one acre and landscape paths with their painted rocks.
