This secluded pocket of land is located in a small drainage and ranges from creek bottom to irrigated hillside to treed terrain with aspen and pine.

There was a cabin built in 2003 with the intention of onsite living for a handyman or caretaker. An additional cabin was built in 2005 offering 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, a full kitchen, and comfortable living area. It is a very charming space and relaxing atmosphere. The large deck invites people to sit back and enjoy the never-ending views of the Colorado High Country. But wait, there is more...in 2007 a trophy room building was completed with no detail left out. The space is complete with a wet bar, powder room and a spacious room for entertaining.
