    As we have had many opportunities to travel with our Miniture Schnauzer I do allow well behaved pets to join their owners. There is an additional $100.00 cleaning fee I require. We do live in wilderness area so it is important to keep this in mind when letting your dog outside especially in the evening hours. We often have deer and elk which will come onto the property so please keep this in mind. I ask that they please stay off the furniture....moreless

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: My husband and I moved to Colorado from Massachusetts in 2006. After spending years on the coast we wanted some mountain living, designed and built our home on Hasting Mesa which we moved into in 2009. It is a custom solar home with all the creature comforts. The San Juan Mountains we have found to be one of the most beautiful in Colorado with the vibrant town of Telluride not too far down the road.

Why the Owner Chose Placerville, CO, USA:
For those who love the outdoor mountain life we offer the perfect vacation getaway in the San Juan Mountains. Hiking & mountain biking are available outside our door or a mere drive away. We are just a 40 minute drive over Last Dollar Road to Telluride and 22 minutes down mountain to Ridgway. Access the San Juans from our home, soak in the Orvis Hot Springs after a long day hiking or biking or just sit and gaze at the mountains. Get away from your city hectic life for some relaxing quiet mountain air, complete with beautiful scenery and wildlife. You are away from the craze of city life surrounded by the beauty nature.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We fell in love with the San Juan Mountains and decided to settle in the middle of it all. We offer awesome access for biking & hiking, beautiful views of North Pole Peak and quiet mornings in the porch swing with your coffee & favorite book. For those who love mountain living or need a total retreat from their city life for vacation this is an excellent spot to spend some time. We have tried to create a home of comfort and relaxation for ourselves and hope to be able to share with others as we spend time away. Although it is an off grid with alternative power we are sure you will find it perfect for your time there.
