About This Property

Located just up the valley from the world famous Mount Princeton Hot Springs Resort, are the perfectly sweet and rustic Bighorn Cabins on Chalk Creek. Two adorable cottages are nestled within pine and aspen on one acre with Chalk Creek bordering the entirety of the Southern property line. Built in 1967, the original 1,324 square foot "Bighorn Cabin" retains the charm of its era, with built-ins, a cozy cobblestone fireplace and 2 spacious bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The home has had some upgrades including the remodel of the main bathroom's tile, sink and bathtub nook, the addition of stainless appliances and tile backsplash in the kitchen, and a hot tub added for enjoying the surrounding beauty with the relaxing sound of the creek. The second "Annex" cabin was originally an 856 square foot woodshed/garage that has been converted into a quaint 2 bedroom 2 bathroom home. A sliding barn door leads from the main floor bedroom to a comfy living area, dining room and kitchenette featuring a copper sink, open shelving and a walk-out to its own private hot tub and patio space. The property hosts ample parking, a fire pit near the creek and towering mountains all around. Bighorn Cabins on Chalk Creek are directly across the road from the Love Meadow Wildlife Viewing Meadow, and further up the valley is the darling ghost town of St Elmo, a favorite tourist spot to see the historic buildings and is a popular take-off point to access several 4WD mountain passes for endless Jeep/ATV/Snowmobiling adventures. The towns of Buena Vista and Salida provide amenities and conveniences. Downhill skiing can be found at Monarch Mountain and enjoy whitewater rafting on the nearby Arkansas River. There are many possibilities for these mountain cabins such as an ideal vacation cabin, full time residence with a guest home, or long term rental. Short term rental must conform to Chaffee County regulations.
