This historic home was built in the early 1890’s. The original owner came to Creede to stake his claim in the mining industry. Did you see the Disney movie The Lone Ranger? This was shot just outside this house! This home has access to hiking, fishing, and ATVing right from the front door. Less than a mile walk or drive will get you to downtown Creede. Creede has restaurants, shops, live theatre at the Creede Repertory Theatre, beauty salons, day spa, museums- such as the Underground Mining Museum which you will pass on your way to downtown Creede, and outdoor activities galore!! You can rent ATV's, rafts, or go on a guided horseback ride. The continental divide trail is located up the Bachelor Loop road. Rock hounds can find amethyst, and crystals all along this historic drive, along with gold and/or silver. Fool’s gold or pyrite is common as well. For the fishermen in the bunch, the river boasts both Brown and Rainbow trout. The streams will have Brook Trout. Lakes may have all three varieties of Trout.
The home is quite old and has a rustic feel. There are a kitchen and a small bathroom with stand up shower. There is a large room with a divider which has a queen bed on one side and a futon on the other. There are 2 small TVs with satellite service. This home is for the traveler looking for a somewhat rustic mountain vacation rental, a great basecamp for small groups looking for an outdoor adventure with a place to stay for cooking and access to hot water. The trailhead to the Pinnacles is just steps from the front door. Hikers, fishermen, and ATV groups would be a great fit for this house.
