        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.

There's actually a Beaver Creature hanging above the fireplace. Thank you, Bungled Jungle. 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. Ah. I'm exhausted.

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. Oh yeah, washer and dryer. Six people in 3 bedrooms is perfect, but if someone snores, there's a pull out sofa bed in the living room. The town of Salida is 9 miles east on hwy 50, and offers many amenities: wonderful restaurants, art galleries, live music, hot springs pool, white water rafting, pubs, horseback riding, mountain and road biking, fly fishing in the Gold Medal Arkansas river, bowling.

                          If you want to stay in the mountains, with adventure and mountain beauty in every direction, this is the place for you! Adventure Central is a very comfortable three bedroom log home in historic Maysville. Just 200 yards south of the house, the mountainside climbs steeply for more than 1000 feet! The ridge then turns south, and climbs another 3000 feet to the summit of Palhone Peak. (best access for climbing is from Willow Creek rd) The ridge you see to the north from the back deck climbs more gently at first, but in six miles has reached the 14,000 foot summit of Mt. Shavano. The north ridge you see from the front door climbs first to 12,000 ft Missouri Hill, then the 13,000 ft Mt. Taylor and Mt Aetna. You can walk to the river from the house and hike in every direction. Ten minutes from skiing, ten minutes from rafting, and mountain biking from your door! At the end of the day sit out on our newly enlarged two level back deck and enjoy dinner with mountains everywhere you look! There is nothing better than relaxing and taking in the view or enjoying the amazing stary sky from our brand new outdoor Hot Tub! The night sky is framed by mountains on both sides, and bright stars in-between. If you are quiet, the deer will sometimes graze in the back yard while you are out on the deck or chilling in the hot tub! There are 15 summits over 13,000 feet within a ten mile radius, and three of them are over 14,000 ft. Mountain bikers can access hundreds of miles of trails starting right from the front door. Hikers can access six trail-heads in different directions, all about five minutes from the house. A short ways further and there are dozens more. Many of our guests enjoy just walking the county roads in "the neighborhood", taking in the mountain views and watching our local "towny" deer population (who at times, like when they eat our lilac flowers, act like they own the place!). Good fishing starts with a short walk or a two minute drive, great fishing in a ten minute drive or a longer hike. In the winter its just five minutes to dog sledding and snowmobiling. In the summer, the best rafting in the state of Colorado is just ten minutes away. There are more jeep and ATV trails within five miles of this house than you will find just about anywhere in the state! All this, and still just ten minutes to Salida, with its restaurants, grocery, and night life. The two story log home has three bedrooms, with one king, and two queen beds. The master bedroom is quite roomy, and the king sized bed has a select comfort mattress, that allows each person to adjust the firmness of their side to their own liking. There is a full bath on each floor. There is also a sun room with a full futon, and for kids an inflatable queen bed and a folding baby crib are stored in a closet. The back deck is perfect for morning coffee, and now has a lower section with a pergola and another table so everyone can eat dinner outside in the summer. A propane barbecue grill makes for easy meal preparation. If you look around early in the morning, or sometimes during dinner, you can enjoy watching deer and elk grazing on the mountainside south of the house. Bring a pair of binoculars because the ridge goes up farther than you might think, and they really help when it comes to spotting animals. Its actually not that uncommon to see deer right in the back yard! When the deer are busy somewhere else, you can still enjoy watching bluebirds chase bugs and hummingbirds chase each other in the field beyond the deck. Even though its a log home, it comes with all the comforts you need. A well stocked kitchen with regular oven, microwave, coffee maker and dishwasher, as well as all the pots pans and cooking utensils you will need. There is a sun room with an HD TV, and stereo. The house has a washer and dryer, high quality internet, and even a ski storage closet. If you came to play in the mountains, why stay in the city? Click through our photos and get a true feel for how nice the inside is, and picture yourself enjoying the perfect vacation! Most people haven't heard of Maysville, a tiny village on the way up to Monarch Ski Area that seems to have more deer than people. It was a boomtown back in the mining days, but now it has just a handful of tasteful homes spaced nicely so that you don't feel crowded at all. One of the remaining historic buildings is the little red schoolhouse across the street from our house. OK, there is also one ugly grey utility garage to the south of our property, but its easy to ignore with the stunning vistas that surround you. This home is only two hours from the Colorado Springs airport, and Three hours from Denver, but you can fly also into Gunnison and drive to the house from there is less than an hour!

                          The SpaceNestled in a quaint Colorado town, this charming abode presents the ideal home-away-from-home experience along with the quintessential rustic retreat ambiance. Originally constructed in 1977 with hand hewn timbers from the Lily Mine, this impressive residence complements the alpine atmosphere perfectly as it sits in the shadow of majestic mountains ridges. The interior is equally alluring, comprised of repurposed barn wood from a classic 1880’s ranch. All the traditional cabin structures can be found here, including a wooden ladder leading to the 3rd story loft, tastefully blended with all the comforts of home throughout 1,400 square feet of living space. You’ll also find practical amenities such as a flat screen TV and laundry machines. Wake from a restful night’s sleep in the lavish king-sized bed, then sip a warm cup of coffee and admire breathtaking sunrise views in the valley to the east. Spend the day exploring the surrounding terrain, then return to unwind in the spacious living room or read a book on the private patio. Savor delicious home-cooked meals at the welcoming dining table, carefully prepared in the fully equipped kitchen. End the evening by lounging on the plush living room sofa and watching a movie on the flat screen TV with your loved ones.

We enjoyed playing in the snow and exploring around this magnificent cabin! We spent time skiing at Monarch and a day snowmobiling- so nice to be so close to everything! Your cabin and beautiful property provided a very memorable spring break for our family. Thank you! Austin, TX 11/24/13 Thank you for opening up your home! The Views are amazing. Loved all the special details you put in and outside your home. Gorgeous!! We drove out from Dallas, TX and decided to stay a few nights up here before heading down to Denver for Thanksgiving. We enjoyed being able to relax and enjoy the beauty all around us! The Ingells, Dallas, TX 10/18/13 What a wonderful place! It's a picture postcard. The snow surprised us, only brought tennies. We'll come again I'm sure! The lodge is extraordinary & the views are without compare. Thanks so much for having us. Mike & Glenda. 7/8/13 First off, this place is absolutely remarkable. Way better than any of my family could have imagined. The scenery was breathtaking and the details inside & outside the home make you feel a part of nature. The mine next door was never an issue and was a unique scene coming and going from the home. The 3 children absolutely had a blast while fishing and hiking on the property. The deer that visited on a morning were a joy and made the morning so beautiful for us. The deck was also very relaxing to everyone as we sat and enjoyed time with one another. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with my family. This is a vacation we will treasure always. The Melton's 6/28/13 From the picturesque view to the "over the top" amenities, this home is #1! We knew from the moment we drove up this would be a vacation to remember! Waking up w/a coffee on the deck & just taking the mt. view in was AMAZING!! Our children enjoyed fly fishing in the pond... if only you could have seen their faces as they proudly held a trout in their hands :). I love to cook & the kitchen was perfectly designed to accommodate our meal prep. The beds were very comfortable!! I don't think you could take a bad picture out here! Found myself mesmerized at times by the beauty you were able to share w/us! Wheat a PRIME LOCATION!! We even visited Great Sand Dunes Nat'l Park (2nd time) because it was only 1 1/2-2 hour drive, but staying home & relaxing was NOT HARD to do! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!! The Kertzman's
