Land Description

BACKCOUNTRY CABIN No water (yet), no electricity (solar area), no snow plowing (except you have your own) and no kidding on the price! Rough but loaded with potential, this happy little cabin on 36 acres with audacious views to the Rocky Mountains, can be yours for a few dollars over a song. The county records show a septic is installed, and the cabin is hooked into it by way of a sink and toilet, but there's no guarantee as to it's exact location. Living in the mountains takes a personality that enjoys risk as the weather is never certain and, in the case of this property, access wouldn't be either. The road is not plowed for snow and unless you're planning to enjoy it only in the summer and fall until all modern conveniences are installed by you, it's perfect! As long as you don't need to get in and out on a regular base. Are you looking for a small investment offering big adventure? This little place just might get your attention. I know that elk, bear, dear, hawk and eagle make this country their home... their back-country home. Located approximately 75 miles from Colorado Springs and only minutes from the quaint town of Westcliffe, you'll enjoy wildlife-viewing or big game hunting in this undiscovered mountain valley, boating or fishing at Lake DeWeese or first-class fly-fishing and rafting in the Arkansas River, just 30 minutes away. Skiing at Monarch Ski Area is only 90 minutes away. For hikers or backpackers, the Rainbow Trail (which runs from Salida to Westcliffe for 100 miles along the eastern edge of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains), can be accessed just west of town.
