This may be just what the doctor ordered: a get-away cabin bordering National Forest & close to 11 Mile Reservoir! It's already cute but could be even cuter with some updating & necessary investigations/repairs/improvements to well and/or water lines & septic system. Tucked away at the end of a cul-de-sac & surrounded by beautiful trees & boulders, you'll feel worlds away from the rat race! The huge front deck can accommodate multiple chairs & tables & even dancing! The adventurous spirit can explore the rocks & adjacent National Forest or walk to the reservoir & general store. The roomy kitchen has lots of cabinets & counter space for a small cabin. A cozy wood stove heats the whole cabin & provides that comforting fragrance that only a wood fire can offer. Flooring on main level is an interesting pattern of hard wood & laminate with an attractive tile in kitchen & bath. Parts of the ceiling are tongue & groove & lovely beaded board decoratively accents multiple areas. Artistic patterns of tile adorn the kitchen counters & backsplash. Loft with nice closet has two sections that can be used as 2 sleeping areas or as just one large bedroom. Main-level 2nd bedroom doesn't have door but has a closet and walks out to back yard. Lots of storage in crawl space & 12x18 shed. Cabin is being sold as-is and there will be no repairs done before closing. Instant hot water tank is installed but not hooked up. Cause of water not coming into house is unknown. At the time of drilling/testing, well produced 10 GPM as recorded! Condition or existence of septic system or tank is unknown. Park County does allow a part-time residence to have just a holding tank rather than a full septic system with the Part-Time Property Use Agreement and an amended well permit from the State on file. With some investments and imagination, this little gem can be enjoyed for generations as a recreational and relaxing escape or possibly a full-time residence. 40 min to Woodland Park; 1 hr to Co Springs.

Colorado is home to some of the best mountain towns in the world. Many have invested in Colorado mountain getaways over the past few years. There are many reasons to purchase a second home or a vacation home in the mountains. Here just a couple of points of consideration if you are looking to purchase a Colorado mountain getaway home.

Location

When choosing a location for a property, it is important to consider elements that are most important to you and for any potential hosting.

Is important to be close to the hiking trails? Do want to have access to multiple ski resorts? Are you hoping to be close to a body of water? What kind of view do you want to see from inside the home? All these answers will help you determine the right location for your Colorado mountain getaway.

Features and Amenities

With a condo or townhome, there will likely be association fees. This added cost can offer access to luxury amenities like relaxing hot tubs and pools, ski-in/out, and direct access to hiking and biking. Colorado mountain getaways that offer luxury amenities are great for owners and renters alike.  Short-term rental websites allow customers to filter properties for specific amenities. 

When on vacation, we all want things to be easy and convenient. Owning a Colorado mountain getaway condo can offer so much more access to great features and amenities that make it highly desirable. 

Cost

Mountain real estate prices vary based on a number of items. Ski-in/out might be the most desirable characteristic, and it comes with a high premium. On top of location, a clear, unobstructed mountain view could cost 20% to 30% higher than a similar unit with no view. Colorado mountain getaway townhomes and condos are generally less expensive than single-family homes.

Potential of Income

Owning a Colorado mountain getaway property not only provides a great place for you to access at your own leisure; it could potentially generate income for you. Short-term rentals in areas in ski towns continuously sell out during peak the months of November through April and June through August. You can even trade days at your property for another location of your choice on certain websites.

There are even potential tax benefits and advantages to renting out your property, so it is essential to have discussions with a real estate broker like myself and an accountant to see how you can maximize profits along with your leisure.
