Well, what is more descriptive of the Colorado dream lifestyle than a cabin in the trees? Now make that image complete with some horse pasture, a big barn with a hay loft, and a workshop; plenty of trees, shrubs, and flowers.... What if we paint in some picturesque cliffs in the background? This property delivers the imitable log cabin, featuring an impressive rock fireplace (fitted with a more efficient wood stove), an appealing bedroom/full bath loft, open on the upper level, as well as a guest bedroom and updated guest bathroom on the main level; plus another room that is perfect for guests and entertaining adjacent to an inviting back deck and outdoor recreation. The cabin's kitchen has been updated with a mountain of granite island, a copper farm sink, modern appliances, too... BUT still including a by-gone era woodburning cook stove (partially updated for propane but still functioning with wood). This home is comfy and "cool" and perfectly suited for enjoying the atmosphere of a cabin existence. 

It is also used as a part-time wedding venue, with enviable photographic scenery and props. Barn weddings are "in" so this place has it all, including the old-fashioned tree swing, antique wooden horse wagon, and even a hitching post. - Hey, that sound like a great name for the venue - Back to the property:  just over 10 acres with separated pastures, storage, a workshop with multiple bays for the tractor and truck plus a trailer, too. Also notice a dedicated wood shed, RV hook-ups, multiple garden areas, fruit trees and shrubs, a chicken pen, animal stalls, and many other wonderful amenities. 

With 10 acres that go all the way up the hillside, this property is great for adventure and exploring. There are relaxing little trails, a hammock in the shade, even a shooting range on the back side. Something else from the by-gone era, cabins usually had an outhouse and this offering does include that, too. The setting here is park-like and calming; the scent of lilac blooms in the spring and the ever-present aroma of fresh mountain air with notes of pine and spruce. 

Plus! This gem is close to McPhee Reservoir and the Dolores river. You will find a convenient location to all things SW Colorado has to offer, situated just outside of the quaint town of Dolores but not too far from Rico/Telluride and Cortez.

Let me show you what an impressive property is...
