Property Summary

Live an off-the-grid, self-sufficient lifestyle on your very own 10 acres (Two adjacent 5 acre parcels)  near the base of Mt. Blanca. This is a delightful place to get away from it all, and enjoy nature. Imagine decompressing as you relax at your own private getaway outside of the hustle and bustle of city life.

Pack your bags and lace-up those adventure boots! Vacation and recreational activities abound here! You can visit the San Luis State Park, the Mt. Blanca Peak, and the National Sand Dunes Park. If you like fishing, try your rod and reel on some northern pike, yellow perch, walleye, trout, and catfish at the many reservoirs, high-altitude streams and lakes in the area. Maybe hunting is your thing, we all need to eat right? Elk and mule deer are plentiful here, at the Rio Grande River and the San Isabel National Forest. Hike or 4-wheel up Lake Como Road, towards the top of Mt. Blanca. Ski at Wolf Creek Ski Area with Colorado’s best snow conditions. Soak in a nearby hot spring pool, or mountain bike on the excellent dirt roads in the area. Just to name a few!

You can find a range of activities to do here, and abundant wildlife. The hunting is good, and the fishing is great at the many nearby Reservoirs. All of this  only an hour away from many famous natural wonders of Colorado: Great Sand Dunes National Park (the highest inland dunes in North America), and the Zapata Falls, which offers panoramic views along the trails. Try the Eagle Nest State Park, and skiing at the Red River, to expand your recreational activities.
