About Judy Younger

We live in Indiana and have been coming to the area since the1970's. My wife and I were married at 10th. Mountain division huts. We found this beautiful spot and built this wonderful home. Now we would like to share the magnificent views and serenity with you

Judy Younger purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Judy Younger chose South Central

We chose the area because of all the amenities it offers. The history, sights, biking, snowshoeing, Skiing for all levels. Nestled between Aspen (via Indepence pass) and Vail, it is the perfect getaway.

What makes this cabin unique

The wrap around porch has magnificnent views. On the west side see the snow capped peaks of Mount Massive and Mount Elbert.

To the North watch the deer, elk and antelope graze in the valley below. To the east, the beautiful Mosquito Mountain range. The north side you can listen to the breeze whisper through the Colorado mountain pine. Go ahead fall in love with it, we did.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Crooked Finger Lodge turns out to be the perfect base camp for the Leadville 100. High Altitude, close to Colombine mine and the perfect spot for support crew close by. The view of the valley and Twin Lakes is spectacular. That may have been the most comfortable bed I ever slept in.

Your house was amazing and it is the perfect location for the race.

Perfect Base Camp

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we used the Crooked Finger Lodge to train and participate in several events of the Leadville Race Series. The location and amenities were perfect for us to relax between rides, prepare for the next ride and clean ourselves up after getting back. The spacious kitchen and large dining table accommodated the group and allowed us to share events of the day.

The lodge is well maintained and the view off the deck with a good cup of coffee in the morning makes it a great getaway from the hustle and bustle of work.

Beautiful cabin, great views, great location, and plenty of amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We booked Crooked Finger Lodge for the LT100. It was a fantastic location to accommodate the crew. There were plenty of sleeping spaces and it was cozy and comfortable. The lodge is stocked with just about everything you need. Whether you are out there for one of the Leadville race series or just looking for place to relax near Twin Lakes, this is a great location. The owner is also very responsive.

Great views, convenient location and quiet setting

  • 5 of 5

Our group stayed at this rental for the Leadville 100 MTB -- and it was the perfect set up. In addition to my family of three (third was a toddler), there was another family of three (again, with a toddler) and another couple. With three bedrooms, three baths and a loft -- we had plenty of room. The wrap around deck also gave us extra "community" space, as we spent several pleasant evenings on the back deck. The rental kitchen is nicely equipped with everything you would need to prepare meals. The dining table is the best feature of the house - our group of eight had plenty of room to dine together. The house has just about everything you would need for your stay -- from spices to a washer and dryer to board games! One quick note -- the beds feel more like doubles and not queens, so they were not as roomy as we thought they would be but luckily there were several other beds in the house, including a day bed and Murphy bed to give everyone enough sleeping room. We were conveniently located near the Twin Lakes Aid station for the bike race -- and it was a pleasant drive to Leadville for grocery shopping, dining out and attending to race-related activities. We also took a short drive to the village of Twin Lakes, which is quaint and adorable. The house is situated in a neighborhood, but the homes are spaced out and secluded. There are beautiful hiking trails literally right outside the front door! The Youngers were very responsive to questions before, during and after our stay. We would stay here again for a trip to Leadville -- and highly recommend it to anyone heading to that area.
