About the owner: We are retired school teachers/counselors who love the outdoors. We have a family of 2 Alaskan Malamutes who love kids and adults. We are happy to share our dream retirement home with you. Thanks for considering booking with us. The Den Keepers James & Liz Dougherty

Why the Owner Chose Twin Lakes, CO, USA (Lake County):
It is truly the very best property in the entire Twin Lakes area. We have some very unique amenities & the best view of all the VRBO listings in Twin Lakes. It is private, yet very easily accessible off Hwy. 82, right on County Road 10.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Easy access from Hwy 24 & 82(Indy Pass) Black top road to driveway. Birdhouses with Mtn Bluebirds and Steller Bluejay residents. 2 varieties of Humming birds 15-20 varieties of other birds including Clark's Nuthatcher, Doves, Red headed Wren, Yellow Warbler and occasional spectacular Western Tanager sighting. Frequent Deer sighting on property as well as early morning red fox. Also Antelope, Elk and Bighorn in immediate area. Great fishing, hiking, biking, boating and ghost town exploration. Numerous 14ers in the area. Mt Elbert, highest mountain in Colorado as your view, with the trail head about 3-4 miles from the house. If that is not enough or you prefer lounging on the patio with a good book and a glass of wine that's steps away.
