Description

Do you love Southwest Colorado? Are the towns of Ridgway, Ouray, Telluride and Montrose among your very special spots? This sweet cabin, located in the San Juan Vista area will grab your attention for sure! San Juan Vista is perhaps the whole area's most desirable locations. It's just off the Last Dollar Road-the famous connection between Ridgway and Telluride. The entrance road literally leaves where the original John Wayne movie 'True Grit' began and ended. This parcel has just under 8 acres, and is fully treed with healthy aspen, spruce and pines. Leopard Creek flows through the property from south to north, and it's located below the main cabin and building area by roughly 100 yards. The sound of aspen leaves rustling and creek flowing-along with the sound of turkeys gobbling and elk bugling are the sweet sounds of this property-not the sound of idling cars! Owners here have their own private access into the National Forest on the south side of the community, and this parcel is especially close. Hunters and simply folks that love to hike and to really get away will love this exclusive access offered to owners! Whether this is your forever dream-a cabin to come and enjoy during the summer months, or to pass along to your family, or if your plan is to something much more substantial-such as building another structure and using the existing cabin as a place for guests or a studio the property works perfectly. The mini log cabin is intelligently built by true craftspeople The main level has a 'living room' as you enter, a counter area for your meals, and a kitchen with mid-sized fridge and cook stove. Heat is smart too-there's a newer woodstove look propane stove on a thermostat. This is safe, efficient and clean. A 'ship' ladder leads you to the sleeping loft above that is surprisingly roomy. The foundation below the cabin is created for storage, and removable panels protect your items from the elements-with them ready when you return. In addition to the cabin there's a newer base for a high end outhouse, with the 'vault' below freshly created. Above this you can build a very fancy or basic outhouse, or take the cabin to the next level by putting in a standard septic system. Below is an open pole barn type structure that is nicely sized for your toys. This can be closed in as desired, but currently it works great. In fact, former owners used this spot for their horses, and this structure was used as a type of loafing shed. Water can be provided in many ways. There's an excellent spring that has been rigged up to the cabin in the past, and this can be developed even more. Water can be hauled to fill a holding tank, or you can drill a well. Electrical power is also available in multiple ways. San Juan Vista residents use wind power, solar power or propane. Cell phone and Internet is available using boosters, and new satellite cellular and internet providers are extremely popular. While the area has what is considered officially as 'seasonal access' the residents come back and forth through all the seasons and a number of residents are year rounders. This is accomplished by snowshoeing or cross country skiing in, or by using Snow Cats, side by side ATVs with tracks, and snowmobiles. The community has private easement that takes you through the Last Dollar Ranch, and this really increases the availability for access. There's a type of 'parking lot' on the Last Dollar Road where folks park their standard vehicles and hop on their San Juan Vista vehicle to head up to their Colorado Escape. Come to Southwest Colorado, come on up Last Dollar Road and make this special property your own!
