Do you find yourself dreaming about owning a private retreat in the beautiful Colorado mountains? Here is your opportunity to do what we did about 18 years ago - we call it orchestrating a midlife crisis. We left the busy life of California and chose to slow down and de-stress in Mancos, CO. Come, and do the same.
Sundance Bear Lodge: 3 buildings on about 86 acres was our answer. But after 18 years, we realize that that is too much for us; we'd like to share it. We are down to 2 buildings for the B&B. The third building and lot have been sold.
The remaining southern half of the land, which is away from the state highway, has been legally divided into 2 building lots with road, electric power and domestic water installed to the lot line. A 13 acre parcel looks down into Cassidy Canyon with a view of the LaPlata Mtns. to the east. The 27 acre parcel looks west into Sundance Canyon with a view of Mesa Verde and the Sleeping Ute. Choosing a building site with a great view would be easy to accomplish. And the premier building sites are invisible from the other lots.
Access to the lots is from Highway 184 onto County Road 39. (We still call the drive Oreo Lane after our dog.) Fire mitigation (required by the county) has been done. We believe our land division will allow everyone to enjoy his/her lot with minimal impact on the neighbors. Covenants are in place to support that.
Photos of the View Lots don't do the land justice. Photos can't capture "drop dead gorgeous"! Our guests will still enjoy about 40 acres when they stay in the lodge and log cabin. The new owners will get to enjoy the rest! For some a map or picture is vital to understanding the relationships between the 3 lots, the highway, and Sundance Bear. Lot #1 with the house has been sold.
Come and experience it. Feel the sense of calm and the serenity.
Check the listings: (13 acres), (27 acres). Pat Janz and Lori Elworthy (with Coldwell Banker) are listing the 2 lots at $159,000 and $161,500,respectively.
