Property Description

The Lazy H Ranch is a unique investment opportunity located in the Heart of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. This 160 acre property is surrounded by National Forest, yet less than 15 minutes away from all seasons recreational opportunities and the rapidly growing town of Salida. The custom built 4,200 sq ft log house boasts mountain vistas and overlooks a 7 acre glacial pond, “Lazy H Lake”. There are also 2 guest cabins on the lake used as vacation rentals.

The Property
The 4,200 sq ft - 4 bed, 2.5 bath, log home is purely remarkable and has the rustic Colorado mountain feel, which so many desire. The open floor plan boasts huge logs with vaulted ceilings and a huge stone fireplace. The kitchen offers granite countertops, an attractive gas range, and custom pine cabinets. Entertain on the incredible 1200 square foot deck overlooking the peaceful lake and white capped Rocky Mountains. High end finishes include, in-floor heating, 5 piece master bath, hickory wood floors, tongue and groove vaulted ceilings, and a walk out basement. In addition the home also has a heated 800sf attached garage. The current owner has spent a considerable amount of time and money, along with immaculate care of the existing residence allowing this retreat to be bought turn-key.

The Cabins (Taylor and Shavano)
There are two guest cabins facing “Lazy H Lake” take full advantage of what the property has to offer. These cabins have been advertised on VRBO and proved successful as lucrative guest cabins. Each rents at $225 per night (three night minimum). The cabins are popular and booked continuously from Memorial Day to Labor Day. A plan and infrastructure exist for additional cabins. Additional cabin construction could subsidize a large portion of the purchase price, or provide additional accommodation for visiting friends or family.

Recreational Opportunities
Recreational enthusiasts can find a myriad of activities including fishing, white water rafting, kayaking, horseback riding, ATV riding, snowmobiling, hunting, biking, hiking, downhill skiing… you name it and Lazy H Ranch has it! Mt. Taylor (13,561ft)and Mt Shavano (14,232ft) are just out your backdoor along with the historic Colorado Trail. From high peaks to low lined aspen groves, the Colorado Trail embodies the Rocky Mountains at its finest. One of the most unique aspect to the ranch is it proximity to Monarch Mountain Ski Resort. You can hit the slopes in less than 15 mins !

Fishing on “Lazy H Lake” will be anything but lazy. Experienced or beginning anglers can easily hook into sizable Rio Grande cutthroat, native cutthroats, cutbows, browns, and rainbows. Trophy cutthroat and brown trout, weighing up to 5 pounds and 32 inches in length have been caught. This stream fed glacial pond is approximately 18 feet in depth, and comes with water rights that serve for a variety of purposes other than fishing.

Lazy H Ranch is easily accessible year round off County Road 224 and Hwy 50. Colorado is the fastest growing state in the country. The I-70 corridor is already maxed out and this area is a very logical direction for residential/commercial expansion from Denver. Salida could easily be the next Breckenridge or Aspen with soaring property values. There is also a commercial airport in Gunnison, CO, which offers direct flights from Chicago, Houston, Dallas and Los Angeles - drive time is less than an hour from the ranch.

“The best investment on earth is earth.” John D. Rockefeller
Lazy H Ranch has been used as a year round residence but could also serve as a seasonal or corporate retreat. The best thing about Lazy H Ranch is that it’s an investment you and your family can truly enjoy. This is the type of mountain property that you could own forever, passing it down from generation to

Lazy H Ranch is also being offered in a reduced 78 acre tract, including the home, lake and guest houses for 3.8M
