Stunning custom home overlooking the gorgeous Lake Purgatory! Take in amazing views from every room in the house. Hike down to the trout-filled lake from the incredible wrap-around deck. And enjoy evenings under the stars in the picture-perfect hot tub nestled in a forest of Aspen trees and Evergreens. While you'll never want to leave this mountain gem, you're just minutes to Purgatory Resort and some of the best skiing and hiking around. **LAST MINUTE SPECIALS**

The space
As you enter through the front door and walk up a few stairs, you're greeted by a warm and open living space. The family room features a dramatic stone fireplace, vaulted ceilings and a wall of windows so you can view the mountains and the lake at all times. Living room furnishings include leather couches, recliner and large coffee table—perfect for game night. There's also a Smart TV (bring your NetFlix and Hulu credentials and pick up where you left off), WiFi and cabinet full of games. Satellite TV subscription as well.

Next to the living room and centered in the house is the custom kitchen, featuring granite countertops, gas stove/range, toaster oven, griddle, toaster, crock pot, coffee maker, pots, pans, dishes and all your cooking essentials.

The dining area is furnished with Pottery Barn table, chairs and bench, and windows that face the north with great views of Engineer Peak, almost 13,000 feet in elevation. Additional seating can be found at the bar stools.

The master bedroom is located on the main floor and has its own private door to access the outdoor deck. Views from all rooms are exceptional, but the master is particularly great. The corner room gives you views of the trees, lake and mountain peaks. There is also a twin size trundle bed tucked underneath the master bed. The master bathroom features a deep soaking tub, double sink, and separate walk-in shower.

Head upstairs and you're welcomed by a large loft with a sitting area and small office work place. Not that you'll want to work, but if you have to, this is just the spot. The loft opens up to the living room and that fantastic wall of windows. Also upstairs is a TV, DVD player and assortment of DVDs. Perfect for a kids' movie night!

Also upstairs are two bedrooms and a full bathroom. The first bedroom includes a queen size bed and walk-in closet. The second bedroom is a bunk room with two sets of bunk beds. The bunk room can sleep 4 and also features a large walk-in closet.

Additionally, there is a full sized washer/dryer on the main floor and separate mudroom downstairs.

Since this property is right on the lake, there is a canoe at your disposal. It is Colorado state law for anyone under age 16 to have a life vest on (also available to you). Take some fishing poles with you and try your luck at catching some trout! Please catch and release.

During the summer months, there is a teak table and 4 chairs on the deck so you can enjoy all the views of Lake Purgatory and the San Juan mountains. The weather is usually very nice in the summer so there is no A/C, which is common for houses at this altitude. Just open the windows and enjoy fresh mountain air.

The family-friendly Purgatory Ski Resort is just 1.5 miles down the road. Winter activities include skiing, tubing, dog sledding, snowshoeing, sleigh rides, snowmobile adventures and more! Summer activities include hiking, mountain biking, canoeing, kayaking, alpine slide, zipline, scenic chairlifts, summer tubing, and the new mountain coaster.

Land line available in the house in case cell phone coverage is spotty. Unlimited domestic long-distance available at no additional cost.

Additional terms and conditions will be provided upon reservation received.

No outside boats allowed on the lake. Only the permitted canoe that comes with the house has been inspected and tagged with a sticker.

Fishing is catch and release.

No pets allowed.

My family and I love to travel the U.S. in our travel trailer, but my favorite spot is in the San Juan mountains surrounding this house. This is our family's vacation home with many great memories.
