“It’s kind of like walking into a Ralph Lauren catalog.” We couldn’t agree more. This stunning property isn’t just a beautiful log-home creation, it’s a work of art, born of the bounty of the forest that surrounds it. This private forest retreat is just minutes from Breck skiing, surrounded by Pike National Forest and close to White River National Forest, and completely secluded amidst pine, spruce and aspen. Less than two hours from Denver or Colorado Springs. Custom crafted from 16-inch British Columbian Spruce logs, this four-bedroom home really shows off the log construction from the beamed ceilings right down to the planked floors and log-hewn staircase. Well-maintained with fresh sealant and chinking in late 2021, new carpet inside and brand-new metal railings on the deck outside. The wide-planked floorboards in the main living areas were salvaged from ocean vessels but the views… those are all Colorado. You’ll feel right at home here, starting from the impressive entry that opens up to the forest views, right down to snuggling into one of the four bedrooms, each with ensuite baths with soaking and jetted tubs and three with fireplaces or woodstoves. The main-floor living area and walk-out basement have their own fireplaces as well. The cozy kitchen has a huge gas stove with six burners and double ovens, plus a walk-in pantry and plenty of counter space to serve guests. The informal dining area is surrounded by windows with forest views. Outside the wraparound deck offers plenty of opportunities to soak in the views and unwind. But you may find that the best thing to do here is nothing at all. As John Muir put it best, And into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul.
