Year Purchased: 1995
About the owner: Lori and I met in Grand Canyon where we were both river guides. After a 13 year residence in Uber-rural Torrey, Utah (pop 250) we moved to the metropolis of Dolores/Cortez and bought a 26 acre hayfield. We put in a septic system and bought a 20 year old, 30 foot travel trailer where we lived while I built the 'shop.'
Why the Owner Chose Dolores, CO, USA:
The 'Apartment' as we call it, is one wing of the shop building. We and the two kids lived in it for seven years while I scratched together the capital to build the 'dream home' out of pocket. We've been in the house for 12 years now and the kids are gone. In a lot of ways it would make more sense for us to move back into the Apartment and rent out the house. It's got everything you need.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Sorry, Montana, these are the best sunsets on earth. 192 degrees of sky. See into three states. The San Juan Mountains are America's Alps and less than a hour to the northeast. You can be at the base of the trail up Mt Wilson, the 14,000 footer featured on the Coors beer can in about the same time as it would take to get to Canyonlands National Park heading the other way. Single-track biking through the pines or the desert, 15 minutes either way. The Dolores River has some fun whitewater a few months of the year and the nearby San Miguel has some genuinely challenging sections. Flyfishing on any number of streams. Lake fishing at the second biggest body of water in Colorado. Canyons of the Ancients National Monument. You can see our placed from the first overlook when you're on top of the Mesa Verde scarp where the big mama cliff dwellings are. In fact, it's probably the coolest place in the world....
