Accommodations: Hunting Cabin, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 10-12)
Large Modern 5 BR Cabin with warm In Floor Heat, Woodstove, and well-stocked kitchen. Cabin Guests Enjoy Exclusive Recreational and Hunting Rights on 700+ Acres Prime Elk, Mule Deer, and Antelope Habitat surrounded by Low Pressure Private land. There's also plenty of nearby public hunting on Little Sheep and Sheep Mountain.
This property is surrounded by non-hunted private property and is a well traveled elk route leading to Muddy Creek. This is the first time this prime property has been available for hunting in many years. During 2009, it was only hunted during 2nd rifle season and a nice bull was taken on opening day.
See the pictures taken from the deck of the cabin the day before the season opened. This property is located just south of HWY 69 and is located in GMU 85 which has over the counter bull tags for 2nd and 3rd rifle seasons. Contact me and I can email you a BLM map showing the contours and boundaries of the property and the location of nearby BLM land.
The property is available year round for Hiking, Scouting, and Horseback riding. It's located just a few miles out of the small town of Gardner, CO which has a General store, Gas station, a couple of bars, and some real characters. Gardner is located 30 minutes from I-25 in Walsenburg and 30 minutes to the resort town of Westcliffe which offers shopping and many dining options.
The setting is convenient, but secluded. The cabin is located at the base of Apache Ridge. There isn't another house to be seen for miles. There are the Snow capped Sangre de Cristos to the West and the Green Mountains to the North and East. From the top of Apache Ridge, you can see Big Sheep and Little Sheep Mountain. The driveway is over 1 mile long and is a dirt road. If rain or snow is in the forecast, 4WD is recommended.
