Welcome to the Erikson Springs Ranch- where luxurious mountain living and your Colorado Rocky Mountain escape synchronize. Nestled at the base of the majestic Mt. Marcellina, this stunning log home sits on 3.89 beautifully manicured acres that encompasses both sides of the Anthracite River along the entire southern length of the property. With nearly equidistant access to both Crested Butte and the Roaring Fork valley, this property is an exceptionally rare find. The custom built Frontier Log Homes main residence welcomes you with a towering river rock fireplace and floor to ceiling windows. High end finishes throughout provide every luxury that one would expect, and no creature comfort was left unattended. The open concept floor plan is perfect for entertaining and can accommodate large gatherings easily. The chef’s kitchen is complete with granite countertops, custom solid wood cabinetry, Sub Zero refrigeration, a gas-fired Jenn-Air range, ice maker, and a beautiful wooden butcher block island that is brimming with history. Gaze out the window over the kitchen sink and take in the view of the Ragged Wilderness right in your own backyard. The kitchen flows into a large dining room and the main living room. Down the hall on the main level you will find two very spacious bedrooms, a large and beautifully finished bathroom, a dedicated laundry room, and a mud room that connects to a massive storage/pantry room. The loft level encompasses a sprawling owners suite with a private exterior balcony deck, a second living room, a wet bar, and an absolutely fabulous master bath. The glass and log shower overlooks a deep jetted soaking tub, and separate vanities ensure plenty of space for comfort. The main residence has a stunning wrap-around porch that connects to a beautifully constructed steel bridge that spans one of many ponds on the property. Across the bridge the manicured grounds continue to a phenomenal deck for entertaining, the hot tub, fire pit, grilling station, and the babbling river. The barn-style second residence provides an amazing space to house additional guests. Two suites flank either side of the barn on the main level, and both have fabulous bathrooms, private access, and the southern suite features another full kitchen. Upstairs is a large open entertaining room that can and has been used for bunking additional guests, movie nights, sporting event screenings, poker nights, and more. The barn has space for parking all of the all terrain vehicles, snowmobiles, and more. There is also a large storage room for gear for each season’s activities, as well as another room that houses extra refrigerators, freezers, and ice makers for those who love to host and entertain. Another 4-bay garage provides even more storage opportunities. The property has hosted many events and has even accommodated a wedding of over 300 people. No expense has been spared in the fit and finish of this special home, from a 50+ year new roofing system to consistent and loving care of the logs, grounds, and systems, this property is truly one of a kind. And with the only straw in the Anthracite river, the water rights (both domestic and irrigation) are robust. The location of this property lends itself to the owner that puts an immense amount of importance on privacy and rarity. Erikson Springs is a true slice of Colorado paradise that exists just an hour over Kebler pass from Crested Butte, 25 minutes from the town of Paonia, and an hour over to Carbondale, Glenwood Springs, and the Aspen/Basalt corridor. A burgeoning food and wine scene and agritourism draws people from around the world to Paonia, and the surrounding resort communities similarly attract people looking for adventure, rest, and all things Colorado. Come seek the peace that exists in this magical place that we call Erikson Springs..
