A Log Home for the Holidays 7

At Home in Nature

What could be better than gathering friends and family around the fire during these frosty winter holidays?

Perched above Cattle Creek amongst ancient pinon trees, this custom home, hewn from massive Ponderosa logs, offers a glowingly warm space for celebration. Located between Carbondale and Glenwood Springs, with a stunning view of Mt. Sopris, it’s just near enough civilization to take advantage of the ski slopes, the holiday fairs, dinners and all the cultural events our valley has to offer.

But step inside. What do you hear? Nothing? Maybe the call of a jay or a gust of wind sweeping snow across the decks that grace the upstairs, with its charming office, sumptuous master suite, and a family room. This getaway offers peace and privacy, a respite from the hustle and bustle. The natural insulating qualities of these venerable logs, ringed with history, make this four-bedroom, four-bath home as cozy as it is quiet. There’s a huge wood-burning fireplace in the living room, a gas fireplace insert, and a large outdoor hot tub to add to the season’s allure.
