Year round access at 8,400’ in La Plata County
At 8,400’ in elevation this hunting and fishing home is not for the faint of heart. Although the County plows the roads to the driveway—providing year round access, the Colorado winters and snowfall is sure to please only the truest of adventurers. If you are looking for a home with amazing views, lake frontage and National Forest access for hunting, horseback riding, hiking, and more…you should look no further.
Studio apartment above the 2-car detached garage
Next to the home sits a two-car detached garage. This building also has a studio apartment located above the garage that can be used for guest quarters. The studio features a full kitchen with eating bar, private entrance, large 3/4 bath, closet space and a private deck overlooking Lemon Reservoir. On the back side of the detached garage is a nice green house for starting plants and extending the growing season. A lean-to off the side of the garage offers additional storage and can hold approximately 300 bales of hay under cover.
Hunting in the San Juan National Forest
This property is a hunter’s dream with public land access right from the home. This hunting home is located in GMU 751. Elk populations in the surrounding area number in the 18,000’s and hunting can be productive, but having access to the National Forest away from public roads and OHV trails is key. Also in the area are mule deer, black bear and turkey. This property has that access and the owner has harvested many elk, deer, and turkey very close to the National Forest access point.
Lemon Reservoir—a year-round lake with excellent fishing and recreation
Lemon Reservoir sits across the road from this property and features approximately 10 miles of shoreline. Fresh water fishing for Rainbow and Brown trout, along with Kokanee salmon populate the lake. The lake has a boat ramp and is a fun place for windsurfing and other water related activities. In the winter months, Lemon Lake has become a popular place for kite skiers. This amazing property with National Forest access has a front row seat to the Colorado outdoors. Hiking trails, biking trails, equestrian trials, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and more…just outside the front door from this incredible sportsman’s home. There are also many quality fly fishing streams in the surrounding area.
