Newly remodeled 1200 sq. ft, 3 bedroom, 1 bath log home, on a quiet lane, nestled among tall aspen and spruce trees, backing up to a mountain stream, with views of The Continental Divide Alpine Range from the large, front windows.
Roll back to the 50's - knotty pine, original rounded refrigerator and stove, retro chairs and table, BUT wireless internet, flat screen TV's, down comforters, gas fireplace. Local art inside, and out.
The house is located approximately 8 miles from a super Walmart in Salida, and 8 miles up to Monarch Ski area, a 10 minute drive. Picture this - skiing fresh powder in the morning, lunch at the house, then back for 3 more hours of skiing. Or, cross country skiing. Or, snowmobiling, snowshoeing. You'd think this was high season, but, oh the summers! Mountain biking the Monarch Crest Trail is right outside the front door. Then, there's hiking or skiing the 13ers and 14ers. Next day? World class white water rafting or kayaking on the Arkansas River. Ghost towns, 4 wheel adventure riding, cross country horseback riding, hiking the Continental Trail or Colorado Trail. 30 minutes to Mt. Princeton Hot Springs. Grab a good book, chair, and head back behind the house to the Little Arkansas River for quiet time.
Creature comforts? 53in. flat panel TV in living room, 24 in. TV in large bedroom, DVD, VHS, assortment of DVD's, books, games. Satellite internet, gas fireplace, large deck with porch, outdoor gas grill, small porch in front. King sized bed, queen beds in other two bedrooms. Beds all have 400+ Egyptian Cotton Sheets, down mattress covers, down comforters, 100% Egyptian cotton towels. Front loading washer and dryer with iron.
