Lake county Colorado is located in the heart of the state and contains some of the first and most lucrative mining ventures in the late 1800's. Many people make Leadville their destination because of its rich history and quaint ethos; main street (Harrison) still looks the same today as it did in 1880 and the locals are very proud of their town and heritage. At 10,152 feet, Leadville offers challenges to athletes while its breathtaking views of Colorado's 14,000 foot peaks draw people from everywhere around the world. Activities are endless in this part of the mountains as winter means skiing and summer means hiking in these gorgeous mountains. Our cabin is 20 minutes out of town in a very quiet and safe neighborhood.
eaver Lakes Estates is located just 6 miles south of Leadville, Colorado off Hwy. 24 South. It is a secluded neighborhood of 150 mountain homes originally built for trout fishing. The landscape is covered with fragrant sage brush and beautiful aspen groves. It is designed by the local beavers who constantly adjust water flows within the streams; however, two stocked lakes are the center of the estates and are maintained by the residents. Although secluded, guests are only 20 minutes from grocery and main street shopping with restaurants and local night life. Four-wheel drive is not necessary as the roads are well maintained by the estate managers. Guests can fly into either Denver International Airport or Colorado Springs local airport; both airports are a 2-hour drive to the cabin. Personal transportation is recommended since the cabin is 3 miles from any major highway.
