About Wendie and Ed Batterson

Wendie and Ed have been renting the house since it was built in 2001. We have enjoyed knowing our guests from around the US and Overseas. The Guest Book is filled with 'Thank-you' and 'Fabulous Vacation' comments. We look forward to meeting new visitors as well as our many returning friends.

Wendie and Ed Batterson purchased this House in 2001

Why Wendie and Ed Batterson chose Twin Lakes

The features of this location are unique in Colorado and hard to duplicate anywhere. Our small, private, development is surrounded by National Forest and BLM land. The views of the mountains are spectacular. Enjoy sitting on Adirondack chairs on the covered deck, reliving your hike up Mt Elbert or urging-on your friends as they make their way up. River fishing or rafting is close by on the Arkansas River with 100 miles of Gold Medal trout fishing; Turquoise and Twin Lakes are close as well. Miles of old mining/jeep trails offer hiking , biking and 4 wheeling with endless possibilities year round. Leadville's amenities are close, about 7 miles to the closest grocery/gas.

What makes this House unique

With the many sleeping options ,3.5 baths, 3 levels, fully stocked kitchen and views in many directions, the house is designed for vacations. Whether you are newly weds looking for privacy in a spectacular setting, a group of mountain bikers who need a good base of operations, or a family group with varying interests, Eagles Rest has been a favorite. The access roads are well maintained year round.

                                                            This home has it all! It is big enough to accommodate a large group, has every amenity you would ever need, the owners are kind, efficient and communicative, and the views are stunning. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation and would highly recommend it to others.

                                                            Perfect Family Retreat

                                                            Alison H.

                                                            Absolutely 100% would love to stay in Wendy and Ed's cabin again. Everything we needed was close enough, yet we were able to enjoy nature's beauty to the fullest with the perfect location. The home was wonderful. Thank you!

                                                            Eagles Nest Lodge was so beautiful and the views were amazing. The house had everything and more!

                                                            Kathryn J.

                                                            We really enjoyed our stay with family from California, Wisconsin and Michigan! Seeing the Elk herds every morning was amazing! The house had more than expected and was bigger than I anticipated and was perfect for our family! Thank you for helping us create new family memories!

                                                            You won't want to leave the porch

                                                            This cabin was the perfect place for our family of adults to meet and explore the area. The cabin (house really) was spacious for our group of 3 couples, was very clean and had a nice kitchen for our group meals.

                                                            With short day trips we visited Leadville, Buena Vista, Mt. Massive, Twin Lakes and found plenty of hiking, canoeing and disc golf. Each day began and ended with some time on the wonderful porch. I would certainly stay here again or recommend Eagle Rest to friends.

                                                            Gorgeous Cabin in Leadville

                                                            We had a wonderful vacation at this home over New Years weekend. The views are so spectacular and it is close enough to skiing and the cute town of Leadville.The house is so beautiful and has plenty of room to host a large group. We will definitely be back!


                                                            Leadville, CO, USA

                                                            High quality and comfortable Cedar Log home. Fantastic views of Colorado's highest peaks. Enjoy the friendliness and convenience of Leadville, skiing at Ski Cooper and Copper Mtn. close by, and the attractions of Aspen, Vail, Monarch and Summit County areas only a short distance away. Our valley has been called the 'Switzerland of America'. In the summertime, it's a day trip to Aspen and the Roaring Fork Valley over beautiful Independence Pass. 3 miles from the Arkansas River, 100 miles of 'Gold Medal' trout fishing. Racers ( bike and running) and their support teams have enjoyed the location over the years as a base of activity and a chance for some to relax on the covered decks and enjoy the solitude.

                                                            Tax Rate

                                                            Please inquire with Owner regarding large group rates; we charge a little extra for groups over 6 but the rate is not set in stone, depending on time of year and ages of guests. We will work to make the rate fair and affordable. Full refund if cancelled outside 45 days. Inside 45 days we will attempt to rent the house and reimburse what we can accrue. Vacation insurance is recommended.
