Property Description

SPECTACULAR! A world away yet so close. Experience 41 acres of pristine and undeveloped natural beauty. For the outdoor enthusiast, this location is paradise. Hiking, fishing, hunting riding (both horses & bikes), snowshoeing, cross country skiing, climbing, camping, and bird watching. Whether you're seeking adventure, relaxation, or a connection with nature, this property allows you to return to the natural rhythms of life. In addition experience an updated year-round chinked log cabin with all the comforts that combines the best of both worlds - the timeless appeal of a log cabin with modern conveniences. Meticulous attention to detail ensures that every aspect of this cabin has been carefully crafted and thoughtfully executed. A moss rock wood-burning fireplace adds to the rustic ambiance, providing warmth and a cozy focal point. Having air-conditioning alongside the fireplace provides additional comfort in all seasons. Step outside and enjoy the luxury of two patios. The perfect setting to relax, dine or simply enjoy the natural surroundings. Listen to the calming stream that runs year-round near the cabin. Build a fire in the outdoor firepit area and immerse yourself in the local flora and fauna - from century old trees to deer, elk, moose, migratory birds and much more. All of this is just 20 minutes from Estes Park, easy and beautiful drive from Boulder, and just over and hour from Denver. A Rare find and True Colorado Gem!
