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. 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, 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.

- Master Bedroom: Queen bed and queen futon pull out

- Guest Room: Queen bed and queen futon pull out

- Bunk room: Bunk bed and double bed

- 2 full baths with tub/showers

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!

Cleaning and trash fee: $100 per stay ($50 extra cleaning fee if over 7+ people)

Refundable Damage Deposit: $200

Pets are negotiable based on approval by owner and pet cleaning fee of $25

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 rentals. We have two children and love this place!

Khristine Prickett Vadala purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Khristine Prickett Vadala chose South Central

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.

Wow! A Wonderful Vacation Location!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you!! This is indeed a beautiful mountain cabin with fantastic views! A perfect home-away get-away location and super comfortable and cozy cabin. The guys had a great four days of boarding at Copper Mountain and my dog and I had a marvelously relaxing and very refreshing time enjoying the beauty of Colorado. Thank you SO MUCH for wonderfully fitting in our last-minute scheduling, the perfect accomodations, communication...and the helpful cabin notebook of information too!! (I hope it did help out a bit that we did a few bedding laundry loads prior to checking out :-) ! ) Our first VRBO experience has been an excellent one thanks to you - and I definately hope you'll have us again!!

Owner's Response: Beaver Lakes is outside of Leadville - high in the mountains so we have limited cell coverage! Most cell providers get text messages with no problem (I have Verizon with no issues). If you go down to the bottom of the hill you can make and receive cell calls. We also have a land line for phone calls and we have wireless internet!

My wife and I loved it. Road to it a little washboarded. Neighbors close by. Accommodations were great though.
