About the Property

3 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Bunkhouse with Mountain Views

Your mountain home is one of the oldest properties in the area, with unique historic structures. A large barn, a large antique machine shop, two furnished antique cabins, a windmill and some old hidden homesteads in the nearby forest make this property a delight. The house where you'll stay was built in the 1950s and has cozy, modern amenities. The bunkhouse is great for children and useful as another large bedroom.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Hi! I'm David Reynolds. I grew up and still live in Canon City, where I have a commercial construction business that my father begun in 1962 and my son is now taking over. We've always been mountain men, hunters, ATV and motorcycle riders, as well as mountain and rock climbers. We are excited to provide the Colorado mountain experience you seek.

Why the Owner Chose Guffey, CO, USA:
We traded property with the BLM for this historic ranch to protect and preserve this important piece of history. The land still turns up old pottery, arrowheads, and other artifacts which we display in the buildings as well as in the main house where you'll be sleeping.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
You can enter and explore most of the old historic buildings. Climbing up Mt Baldy, Hammond Peak or Black Mountain on an ATV, a horse or on your own two feet is a worthwhile adventure. Snowshoeing, cross country skiing or hiking any of the trails off the property is also rewarding. Hunters enjoy all the open BLM land and the ample wildlife.
