About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Mountain House with Views Of Collegiate Peaks

Enjoy the beautiful views of the Collegiate Peaks from our Leadville Beaver Lakes Estates mountain house. At about 10,300 feet elevation, it's a great mountain getaway without the hustle bustle of a resort! Our home has direct views of Mt Elbert and Mt Massive and easy access to all of your mountain adventures. Leadville is conveniently located about 6 miles north to enjoy the historic town's sites, or set off to nearby Turquoise Lake or Twin Lakes. Lots to do in all seasons! Its a great base camp for all your mountain adventures!

Our mountain home is 1400 sq feet with three bedrooms and 2 full baths built in 2001. Its decorated with lodge type furniture and accents with new carpet. It sleeps 8 in beds and has all the modern comforts including internet, satellite TV, DVD player, microwave, dishwasher, wood burning stove, washer/dryer, propane gas grill, stainless steel appliances, all kitchen wares, nice linens, etc. Easily sleeps two families for a great getaway! There is a large deck for grilling and entertaining facing the mountains for beautiful sunsets.

- Guest Room: Queen bed and queen futon pull out

- Bunk room: Bunk bed and double bed

SUMMER/FALL: Beautiful hiking, cycling and mountain biking trails around Leadville, Collegiate Peaks and Turquoise and Twin Lakes , and the surrounding areas. Close-by 14er's for hiking, fly fishing on the Arkansas, horseback riding, lake fishing, river rafting, ATVing, etc. Aspen is only 40 miles away (when Independence Pass is open) and Summit County is only about 30 minutes away. Leadville has many sporting events and music and art festivals to enjoy. Our house is next to Empire Creek with beaver ponds for instant nature explorations and easy hikes.

WINTER: Great skiing- 10 miles from Ski Cooper, 25 miles from Copper Mountain, 40 miles from Vail. Over 9 ski areas within 40 miles! Leadville also has a great sledding hill, outdoor ice skating rink, aquatic center, dog sledding, Mineral Belt trail for cross country skiing and tons of snowshoe trails on Tennessee Pass and surrounding areas. We also have great sledding on our road and there is even a frozen beaver pond for little “hockey” games around the corner! Lots of fun for everyone! The roads to the house and Beaver Lakes Estates are plowed and maintained in the winter. Our driveway is also plowed. We recommend an all-wheel drive car or SUV in the winter as although the roads are plowed, they can be snowpacked!

Beaver Lakes is located the San Isabel National Forest about 6 miles south of Leadville and about 20 miles north of Buena Vista – 2+ hours from COS or DEN airports. We love our mountain house and use it regularly but want to share it with others too!

Note: No fishing in the two private lakes in Beaver Lakes due to HOA rules. Close by fishing out of the community in nearby Crystal Lake and more!

About Khristine Prickett Vadala

My brother and I built this house in 2001 to enjoy the Colorado lifestyle on weekends. We live in Colorado Springs and enjoy hiking, skiing, and biking with our family in the beautiful central Rockies. My husband and I bought my brother out recently and are now offering it for vacation rentals. We have two children and love this place!

Khristine Prickett Vadala purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Khristine Prickett Vadala chose Leadville

The cabin is located in the Beaver Lakes cabin community of about 100 homes just south of Leadville. Just a little off the beaten path, you'll enjoy breathtaking views of the Collegiate Peaks while still being close to town.

A wonderful home for a family to enjoy outside of Leadville!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is such a fun and beautiful place to be. The views are awesome, changing throughout the day and night; don't miss the stars! It's a cozy setting with great decor collected by the owners; the living room lends itself to games and relaxing; the dining room, bedrooms and kitchen are laid out well for a family and very user-friendly. Snowshoeing around the cabin, in the mountains and up the Independence Pass road (when it is closed) were what we wanted and the Leadville swimming pool is great for kids!! Khristine was very helpful when we had glad we chose this spot !

A peaceful setting just far enough from the city

  • 5 of 5

This cabin has good access, and is just far enough from Leadville to give it a country feel. You can follow the access road up from Beaver Estates and be in the old mining areas in no time. It has great access to fly fishing and hiking. We did Mt Elbert during our stay. We look forward to staying here again. Thanks!

We really enjoyed our stay! The house was spacious with 3 nice size bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a large laundry room. There is a nice deck, well stocked kitchen, and dish TV. The area is beautiful and very quiet. We had 6 six adults and had plenty of room.
