About the Property

3 Bedroom, 2 Full Bath Cabin Sleeping 10

This home sits on one acre with a fabulous front view 2nd to none in the area. Modern but rustic as a mountain home should be. Master bedroom with king size bed, fireplace, television, bunkbeds, deck facing mountain view with café table and chairs . 2 additional bedrooms newly remodeled with queen beds, each with a Pak and Go available for babies. Full bathroom upstairs and down. Queen air mattress for living room. Living room has fireplace, pellet stove, 46' LCD television with Directv and Blu-ray DVD player plus all new leather furniture. Wi-Fi to use your laptop, tablet, phone or stream free movies. Washer and Dryer. 10 foot oversized picnic table for outdoor dining. Gas grill. Sit on the deck and just watch the world go by as the deer, bear, marmots, chipmunks, coyotes, blue jays and rabbits stroll/fly by observing you.

Short walk from town and many opportunities to play and enjoy the great outdoors. A 10-15 minute walk puts you in the heart of Lake City where you can dine, shop, go to theaters, play in the park, or enjoy worship at one of 4 churches. Many local events like bingo and guided historic walks await you.

Some of the best 4 wheel drive roads in the state await your exploration. The Alpine Loop is one of the most scenic drives in the state. Slumgullion Pass to Creede is to die for beauty in the fall for Aspen viewing, not that it isn't wonderful in the summer. ATV's and trail bikes have endless opportunities to see new locales.

If Lake San Cristobal is to large for you, there are a multitude of small lakes to hike to to test your fishing prowess, or to just enjoy while picnicking.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1979

About: Retired 'Papa' and Grandma of six kids and ten grand-kids. Papa is a retired Denver Public Schools administrator and Grandma is a systems support specialist with the Postal Service. All our kids virtually grew up spending their summers in Lake City living in this home and have gone on to successful careers in Colorado and each still gets to the cabin several times a year. My new grand-daughters sitting in front of the fireplace giggling make it all worth while. Many happy memories of all seasons for our family at this wonderful home away from home. I hope you'll leave with family memories of your own.

Why Lake City, CO, USA:
Great Views from the front decks, great fishing, hiking, 4-wheeling, snow activities, hunting, and adventurous activities. Close to charming, historic Lake City, yet in forested area. Room to spread out without neighbors right on top of you. Comfortable walking and biking distance to town and all it's amenities.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The view is second to none in the Lake City area. 1 acre property for kids to roam and play safely. Three playgrounds in town and completely safe for kids to wander and play. The 2nd largest lake in the state is only 5 miles away for boating, fishing, and swimming for the brave at heart!
