When you first arrive at The Homestead, you will be welcomed by sprawling Cottonwood and Elm trees, and the vistas beyond. Its welcoming open floor plan and visiting nooks make it perfect for large gatherings of friends and family, or for a couple looking to get away from it all.The original tiny Homestead was built in the 1920's--with renovations and updates the house is now 2200 sq ft. and boasts 4 bedrooms and 3 baths. Features include: accessibility on ground floor, wood stove, gas fireplace and two patio sitting areas.
A modern, fully equipped kitchen and dining area that seats up to 8 people (with ability to offer additional seating) are surrounded by large windows that look out onto the La Plata mountain range to the east. The spacious and private master suite includes a fully accessible bathroom, complete with a very spacious curbless shower. Additional bedrooms include: two bedrooms on the bottom floor with a shared bath, and a loft bedroom upstairs with private bath. Both the living room and the master bedroom have satellite television and the home has hi-speed internet. Additionally, there is a laundry room with large capacity washer and dryer.
The Homestead is conveniently located minutes from town, yet has a very private/rural feel, with horses and cattle grazing in the surrounding pastures as the closest neighbors. Ride your bike or take a walk into town for breakfast or dinner. The Mesa Verde entrance is literally a stone's throw from your front door, and mountain biking/hiking trails are close by. In the winter, the Chicken Creek cross country ski area is within a 15 minute drive, where skiers and snowshoers can enjoy ment miles of wooded groomed trails. Downhill skiing abounds at Purgatory (approx. 50 miles) and Telluride (approx. 80 miles) ski areas. There are also dog sledding opportunities in the area.
For fellow horse folks, we do have the ability to house 2-3 horses. Our location is ideal for accessing nearby mountain trails, where you can ride for a couple of hours or a couple of days! Beat the Arizona heat and enjoy the cooler temperatures of rural Southwest Colorado!
