Luxury Log Home on the Rio Grande River

This beautiful custom log mountain home is built on the banks of the mighty Rio Grande River and has spectacular views of the river and the breath-taking Rocky Mountains. It is located nine miles west of the old silver mining town of Creede, Colorado and is accessed from the Silver Thread Highway (Hwy 149), which winds its way through the Rockies from Gunnison to South Fork.

 

All the wilderness you want with all the comforts of home

The home is located 9 miles outside the town of Creede.  It is adjacent to the Rio Grande River and accessed from Highway 149, the historic Silver Thread Highway. The two closest commercial airports are in Alamosa and Durango.  Creede has it's own private airport. A timber frame roof crowns the home.  The windows and decks are strategically placed to provide the full impact of river and mountain views. It sits on the curve of the Rio Grande River, providing double the views, both up and down the river. The many trees add to the mountain feel of the home.

Endless adventures outside your front door

The town of Creede was a significant part of the old wild west. Creede was the last silver boom town in Colorado in the 19th century. The town leapt from a population of 600 in 1889 to more than 10,000 people in December 1891. The town population was 290 at the 2010 United States Census.

 

 

enter the great outdoors

The Creede area offers an endless menu of both summer and winter activities. The home is ideally suited for those who enjoy fishing, hunting, off-roading, hiking or even top quality repertory theater experiences; while living in a spacious, warm, quality home with magnificent views of the Rio Grande River and Rocky Mountains.

catch the big one

Fly fishing in the Rio Grande is a must! And the area is filled with bountiful rivers, streams, lakes and ponds, all of which call to the avid fisherman.

rev up your off-road side

The area contains hundreds of miles of off-road trails, logging roads, and 4-wheel roads through some of the most beautiful country in America. The area is close to many 13,000 foot passes, such as Cinnamon, Engineer, Stony and San Luis Pass. Six of the seven 14,000 foot peaks are in Colorado.

hit the slopes

Creede is only 22 miles from the Wolf Creek ski area and lodge. Plan a vacation to Wolf Creek Ski Area with family and friends and share a great experience together in the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Colorado. The low-density skiing experience at Wolf Creek Ski Area makes Wolf Creek a destination hot spot for powder hounds, families and new skiers alike.

 

Creede: small town with a big heart

Nature, history and adventure define the Mineral County experience.

The full-time population of Mineral County is only about 700, with our summer visitors adding a very substantial seasonal increase (to around 4000). It's an interesting mix of the old mining and ranching families rich in local tradition, and the newcomers (meaning anyone not born in Mineral County, even if you've lived here 30 years), who have added a certain cosmopolitan nuance to an old mining camp.

charming city center

Creede is a tiny town with a charming old-west business district tucked into the mouth of a high mountain canyon, site of a major 1890s silver strike. A high-quality grocery, sporting goods stores, gift shops, galleries, eateries and a repertory theatre line Creede's 6-block "downtown." Hardware and grocery stores and other services are prominent.

colorado's top art town

Creede has a reputation as an arts center with a laid-back attitude, and was voted Colorado’s Top Art Town in 2010. A series of festivals and events dedicated to the arts and local history occur throughout the year.

get away from it all

A visit to Creede/Mineral County is definitely an excellent way to "get away from it all." Even with our summer tourism, we do not have the crowds and jostling of better-known destinations. No giant neon signs, cookie-cutter franchise motels or chain restaurants, either. And winter is the undiscovered season of hidden delights, adventure, romance, and mountain majesty. Fewer people, lower prices, actually more activities available than in summer...winter is our secret too special to believe—including Wolf Creek Ski Area, acknowledged to have "the most snow in Colorado."

And our attractions are real: an auto tour of the old mining district and ghost towns, a mining tour guided by real hard-rock miners, live theatre, friendly folks, and all tucked into a vast and dramatic natural landscape, with tiny Creede the jewel in the crown.
