Property description


At 9,200 feet elevation, you will enjoy the clean Colorado air and be amazed by the dazzling star show every night! We would like to share our new (to us) home in the Spanish Peaks area. This is a custom-built log home with all the amenities.

The home is available from May 1 to November 1. We are in the high mountain valley south of Cuchara. Sunrise in the morning over the Spanish Peaks, sunset in the evening over San Isabel National Forest. Wildlife roam the mountains. You may see deer, elk, big horn sheep, black bear – all sorts of mountain wildlife.

Our home is four bedroom, three bath, on three levels. The loft level is the double bed with ensuite bathroom. The main level is the open living room with fireplace and fully equipped kitchen and the master bedroom with queen-sized bed and ensuite bathroom. A private deck off the master bedroom is perfect for morning coffee or an evening aperitif! The lower level is two bedrooms, sharing one bath, with private exit to the deck. We replaced the carpeting with wood flooring and the warmth of the main room is special.

Cuchara boasts two restaurants, The Timbers and the Dog Bar and Grill (where people actually do take their dogs). La Veta, only about 8 miles north, has lovely shops and restaurants. Don’t miss Alys’s Restaurant – best around for miles! The Next Door Deli, The Ryus Bakery, and the Paradise Bakery are all musts for breakfast or lunch.

A drive south on Highway 12 (Highway of Legends) on the way to Trinidad provides unbelievable scenery. The Sand Dunes Monument is about an hour away. Taos is a couple of hours away.

We discovered this area several years ago and fell in love with it. We bought a condo two years ago. Now we have purchased this house in addition so we have room for family visits.

We aren’t totally retired, so we can’t be there full time yet. So, we would like to share it with special people who will enjoy it as much as we do.
