About the Property
4 Bedroom 3 Bath on Cottonwood Creek
The remodeling process is complete! 4 bedrooms (2 up and 2 down*). Spacious kitchen that you will enjoy spending time in, if you can drag yourself in from the incredible spaces outside! *Disclaimer: the 2nd downstairs bedroom is 'non-confming' sleeping space but does not have an egress window. However it has two doors, one on each side, that lead to exits.
So much to do within minutes, no matter what your passion for the outdoors. When you return home you can soak in the hot tub, make a fire in the fire pit and roast marshmallows, or just pull up a chair on the deck overlooking the pond and enjoy the view of Mount Princeton through the trees and the sound of Cottonwood Creek running through the property. Bar-B-Que (propane) grill for your use, and a horseshoe pit out in the back next to the fire pit.
Ride your bike to the top of Cottonwood Pass from the house, and stop at Cottonwood Hot Springs on the way home, just two minutes away, or drive fifteen minutes up to Cottonwood Lake and spend the day enticing those trout to jump into your basket. You can also paddleboard or canoe across the lake if fishing doesn't interest you!
A quick trip to the top of of Cottonwood Pass by car reveals Colorado's finest scenery, or take the drive over to the old historic mining town of St. Elmo. Aspen is only an hour and a half if you're brave enough to take the drive over the famed Independence Pass.
Whether your passion is whitewater rafting, kayacking, fly fishing, or mountain/road biking, you can find it all within minutes of our front door. Four-wheelers take delight in the area's designated playgrounds, and rock climbers would find the multi-pitch Davis Face a great way to spend a day. Chaffee County also has more 14ers than any other county in Colorado, if you've had an inkling to stand on a summit of one of the highest peaks in the U.S. And after all of this you'll find quality restaurants and breweries just a few minutes away.
Come and enjoy one of the area's most secluded properties within ten minutes of town, relax, enjoy, and book your next year's stay while you're here, or as most of our guests tell us, they never want to leave!
Doggie disclaimer: We're dog friendly but please be aware that dogs are not to be left unattended in the home while guests are out. We understand that there are activities that are not suited to our pups, but even 'well behaved dogs' can become disoriented and perhaps engage in abnormal behavior while you're out. We also ask that your dogs that are used to sleeping with you not be allowed on the bedding in the home, as a courtesy to the next guest and the housekeeper. We also ask that you pick up after your pets. If our housekeeper has to do it, she will charge a hefty fee which will be deducted from your deposit. Also our neighbors have chickens, and if dogs roam up there to harass them or make a meal of one of them (it has happened), deposit will be forfeited entirely. Pup/mud towels are furnished as the pups love the pond!
Also should be noted that my neighbors are beekeepers (there is a hive up above the property, but as busy as they are, I rarely see them down here at the house). The hive is protected by an electric fence to keep the bears away, and dogs/children should not be allowed to roam up the hill. There are No Trespassing signs, so please stay down in the creek bottom, no hiking up behind the house.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
Paying with a credit card on VRBO protects your payment for up to $10,000 against listing fraud. We recommend completing your booking on VRBO.Learn more
