About the Property

Classic Secluded Mountain Cabin. In the aspens!

This is an almost new custom cabin in a beautiful aspen forest. The Beaver Lakes Estates' privately plowed road leads five miles off the highway to this quiet, sunny, mountain home. The heated floors will warm your toes and the woodland wildlife will warm your heart. You may depart for above tree line wilderness right from the front door on foot, x/c skis. bike, or snowmobile depending on the season. The cabin is only 15 minutes from the edge of Historic Leadville and Arkansas River fly fishing, and only half an hour to Ski Cooper and the Mt. Elbert trailhead. No fishing in Beaver Lakes. Lake County Short Term Rental License # 2017-55
