Property description

The towering trees that stand sentinel over the grassy meadow can tell the story of the Chalk Creek stagecoach stopping to water the weary horses in the Wilsey ditch while the tenacious riders are talking of how nice it would be to have a comfortable cabin just on the edge of this meadow where you could watch the bighorn sheep traverse down the mountain to graze.

Fast forward to 2016. That same stagecoach road is now a driveway. The same ditch runs through the property. The same grassy meadow is still the salad bowl for bighorn sheep and other wildlife. But now there is the rider's dream cabin, BigHorn On The Wilsey. A 1300 SF custom-built immaculate 3 BR, 2 BA home. Soothing designer colors on the walls bring the outside in. Go to any window and it becomes a frame for the beauty of nature ~ tall pine trees, quaking aspen, willows, and outstanding 14er mountain views. The shady front porch is the place to relax on a hot summer day. A leisurely walk down the drive yields a view of the Wilsey ditch and grassy meadows. A variety of wildlife drink from the ditch. The bighorn sheep viewing meadow is adjacent to the property. While the rest of us park our vehicles and hope to see the bighorn sheep in the few moments we are there, you have a front row seat to the mountain they climb in order to reach the meadow. The cabin and its 2 acres are surround on 3 sides by USFS/State land. No neighbors in sight. No roads in sight. No noise. Clear starry skies. 100% nature. This is Colorado perfect.

Occupancy: Six (6); One King bed, One Queen bed, One Twin bed with Twin Trundle in open loft; 2 Full Bathrooms with Bathtub/Shower Combo (One upper, One main); luxurious designer bedding and linens; designer wares fully stocked in kitchen; Free WiFi; Land-line telephone with Free Local calls; HDTV flat screen TV with Sony DVD/CD player and Bose speakers; Designer propane stove in Great Room; Washer and Dryer; Ample closets/storage; outdoor grill; in-ground fire pit; horseshoe pit.

BigHorn On The Wilsey is your private (and convenient) base for mass exploration; world-renowned white-water rafting or fishing on the Arkansas River, soaking in Mt. Princeton Hot Springs, wildlife viewing on the property, star-gazing the night sky, walking trails (CDOT and Colorado Trail), hiking 14ers, touring ghost towns (St. Elmo, Hancock, Tincup) and other historic sites, taking your Jeep up the 4x4 trails (complete maps inside cabin), gem and mineral collecting on Mt. Antero and Ruby Mountain, fishing nearby lakes, snowshoeing, downhill skiing at Monarch, Nordic skiing, sledding, composing your memoir, reconnecting with loved ones, quiet reflection, and absolute relaxation.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Originally from the Midwest, my husband and I moved to Colorado because of our love of the mountains. We have a young son now and especially would like to instill in him the importance of nature; ultimately, we try to spend as much time outdoors as possible.

Why the Owner Chose Nathrop, CO, USA:
We enjoy white-water rafting, jeep and ATV trails, soaking in natural hot springs, hiking 14ers, exploring historical areas, gem collecting, wildlife viewing, and the absolute peace of nature. BigHorn On The Wilsey is the perfect home base to appreciate all of the aforementioned activities.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
BigHorn On The Wilsey is unlike any other property in the area. The cabin is surrounded by USFS/State Land on three sides, no roads or other structures/homes in sight, has direct access to walking and hiking trails, and views of unobstructed mountains and wildlife from any window. The waterfalls can be heard from the cabin, and at night, all the stars shine with zero light noise and a feeling of being out in the middle of the wilderness although the cabin is only a few miles from the closest convenience.
