About Ted Lively

Ted and Laneta Lively are both from Wichita Falls, TX. Ted is an insurance salesman and Laneta is a school teacher. Laneta's family has been coming to Lake San Isabel for over 60 years. The family has always loved the peace and tranquility of this area. Laneta's grandparents first purchased a cabin here around 1960.

Ted Lively purchased this house in 2012

Why Ted Lively chose Rye

In 2008, we completely rebuilt the family home and in 2012 purchased the house next door, just to rent out and to have and share with family and friends. This house was built in 2000, by Laneta's cousin but never finished. We completely updated it inside and out in 2011. FOR SALE by OWNER

What makes this house unique

This house is located off of Hwy 165, across from Lake San Isabel, on a dead end road. So, it is always quiet, which encourages having abundant wildlife. From the back deck, you will be amazed at all the hummingbirds, chipmunks, deer, magpies, finches, stellar jays, just to name a few. The house is an easy five minute walk from the lake, that is stocked with rainbow trout and salmon by the state of CO. Fishing supplies and licenses are sold at the restaurant, which you walk right by to get to the lake. The house has a water well with very clean, 'DRINKABLE' water. Just listening to the small creek behind the house and observing the wildlife is the best medicine.

Beautiful home very friendly owners.

  • 4 of 5

The house was great and the location was beautiful. Mr. Lively was very nice and told us about several great places in the area to visit, I really recommend Mission Wolf it was a wonderful experience. Overall our stay was well worth it.

However, in the property's description it states there are two full bathrooms. We had troubles with the downstairs toilet not flushing properly and for people not used to the high altitude having to climb the stairs to use the restroom was killer. Also, the upstairs bathroom you could only take a bath there was a shower head but no shower curtain. These were fairly minor things, but if you have a larger group having to share one bathroom could become a problem.

Another wonderful weekend !!

  • 5 of 5

Again we had a wonderful weekend escape at this terrific mountain location. Saw lots of wildlife as usual & a usual mix of Colorado weather to remind us we were in the mountains. The cabin was clean & inviting as it always is, & I would personally like to thank our very considerate & caring

hosts John & Kiimberli for going out of their way to assist our weekend of pleasure. Will hopefully be back again soon. Thanks Ted & Lanetta, & thanks John & Kimberli !!

Great house, location, and owners

  • 5 of 5

House was a nice size with plenty of room and modern appliances. We had 6 people stay and on one night invited extended family over for a game night. Plenty of room to accommodate them. House is in a great location within walking distance of the lake and our favorite hike (slide rock). The backyard was very relaxing with entertainment provided by chipmunks , hummingbirds and deer. The owners really went above and beyond what was expected. Besides giving us great tips on things to do around the area, they gave us sunflower seeds to feed the wildlife and let us use their grill one night to cook burgers. I highly recommend this property.

The Lively's have a wonderful house. It has everything you need for a relaxing vacation. It is clean, comfortable and very accommodating. The humming birds are beautiful and want to be fed. The deer visit daily along with the chipmunks. You WON'Tvbe disappointed.

FOR SALE by OWNER San Isabel is located in South Central Colorado and near a variety of tourist attractions. The San Isabel National Forest is an ideal place for picnicking, fishing, and hiking. A trip up nearby Greenhorn Mountain, at 12,500 ft., offers a splendid view of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range. Within walking distance from the cabin you will find Lake San Isabel. It is open year round and stocked by the Colorado State Department of Wildlife. Another treasure hidden in the Wet Mountains is Bishop’s Castle, built by Jim Bishop. The huge stone and iron castle, complete with a smoking dragon, is an intriguing side trip from San Isabel. (Approx 10 min drive from Isabel) Westcliffe is a forty-five minute drive including a bowling alley, movie theatre, summer concerts and festivals, specialty shops, and a variety of dining options. Within ninety minutes is Colorado Springs which is home to the Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak, Olympic Training Center, and the US Air Force Academy.

We are also located just minutes away from the Christianson Brush Canyon Ranch (which offers a wedding venue.)
