A Cozy Log Cabin In Colorado Is Selling For A Rock-Bottom Price

When you picture a beautiful log cabin on nearly 40 acres of land with stunning views of the mountains, "affordable" probably isn't one of the first words that come to mind — it's perhaps not even in the top ten. That's because when it comes to real estate, prime location, one-of-a-kind views, and acreage almost always come at a steep price. And since this property is nestled in the mountains, you'd think the price is even steeper. Fortunately, nature lovers with even the most modest of budgets now have the opportunity to buy this haven. 

It will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for anyone to own an idyllic piece of true Colorado wilderness when this newly-built property goes up for auction, with bids starting at just $100,000, according to Realtor. It's the perfect parcel, whether the potential homeowners plan to use it to reconnect with nature and take in the mountain views, for hunting or fishing, or simply live as far away from other people as possible. Whoever acquires this cabin will have the rare option to take in the breathtakingly beautiful views of the rugged Colorado mountains right from their back door.

A nature lover's paradise

Located at 39466 US Highway 24 in Lake George, Colorado, this beautiful Central Colorado Mountain property backs up to Pike National Forest on three sides, per the listing on Realtor. It offers stunning views and acres upon acres of ample privacy, but the homeowner is sure to be in great company among the wildlife that frequent the property, such as bears, elk, mountain lions, mule, deer, turkey, and more. Additionally, the year-round stream flowing on the property is ideal for trout fishing. Anglers can also drive 20 minutes to the nearby Dream Stream between Elevenmile and Spinney Mountain reservoirs for even more prime fishing action. 

And while the property is a hunter and angler's absolute dream, it's also the perfect location for those who want to sip coffee on the spacious covered deck and appreciate the stunning mountain views while living alongside the wildlife. The world-famous Breckenridge or Monarch ski resorts are not far and make a perfect day trip for those looking to shred the slopes skiing or snowboarding. Colorado Springs, Cripple Creek, Pueblo, and Salida are also about an hour's drive from the property — perfect for a day of shopping, wining, and dining if you want to step away from the great outdoors for a bit.

One-of-a-kind picturesque views

As if the nearly 40 acres of land and stunning mountain views weren't enough to entice homebuyers to throw their hats into this affordable auction, the inside of the cabin makes everything much more unbelievable. Built in 2018, per the listing on Realtor, the newly-built, spacious 1,664-square-foot log cabin is completely move-in ready for any homeowner looking to make the property their primary residence. It's also perfect as a vacation home to slip away to when they want to reconnect with the great outdoors.

The two-bedroom, two-bathroom log cabin has a room and a bath on each level of the home, as well as ample living areas on each floor. They're perfect for entertaining guests while offering them and yourself utmost privacy. The vaulted ceilings, open-concept floor plan, and huge triple-pane windows throughout the home help bring in the maximum amount of natural light possible while providing 360-degree views of the Colorado wilderness. 

Modern luxury in the great outdoors

According to Realtor, the log cabin's main level features a great room with floor-to-ceiling windows that frame a beautiful, wood-burning fireplace. The main floor also comprises a state-of-the-art, open-concept kitchen with custom floors and brand-new energy-efficient appliances, including an oven with a range hood and a floating granite countertop bar-height island.

Each of the cabin's bathrooms is equally luxurious, with modern lighting fixtures and state-of-the-art soaking tubs, offering guests a taste of mountain luxury and pristine views while allowing them to enjoy the privacy of their own floor. The basement is also equipped with a brand new washer and dryer, so neither you nor your guests ever have to leave the comfort of the great outdoors to find modern amenities or living essentials. While the upper level features access to the covered balcony-style deck in the back, the finished walkout basement leads to a concrete slab on the lower level. Both are perfect for watching the Colorado sunset over the mountains from the comfort of your own backyard.
