Hike, bike or snowmobile from your front door into thousands of acres of National Forest. This property has so much to offer.

The Trout House was built to maximize the stunning lake, stream and mountain views. Although this home is true Colorado Rustic, it is filled with every modern convenience. The home is beautifully decorated throughout and comes “Turnkey”, i.e. includes all furnishings, bedding, linens, kitchen utensils, and most of the artwork. (The owner may reserve some of the artwork.) The Trout House was completely remodeled in 1998.
There are two full living levels, complete with two full modern kitchens and dining areas, multiple living and family rooms, bedrooms, baths, and wrap around decks. An elevator serves the two main levels, and a hand crafted log spiral staircase towers through the three levels to the sleeping loft and its private 3/4 bath. There is central heat as well as multiple fireplaces and wood stoves. The spectacular main floor master suite has a seating area with views of the 14,000 ft. peaks and the creek. This oversized suite also includes an artistically tiled bathroom, lots of closet space, and natural views out of every window.
