Cozy Cabin in Big River Ranch, Creede

Main floor living with no stairs in one of the original cabins in Big River Ranch in a private, gated community with private access to the best parts of the Rio Grande River.

Just steps away from the banks of the river, one of the largest lots in the community at a little more than half an acre, you will feel cozy with the enormous and mature trees surrounding you on three sides, and in awe of the breathtaking views of the cliffs outside of Creede. Wild animals stroll through the common area meadow that is your backyard.

This house sits in the middle of one of the most coveted, private, and gated communities in all of Colorado.

Lovingly maintained and updated by the owners for the past 32 years, this two bedroom, 1 and 1/2 bathroom cabin has had many upgrades and additions throughout the years. 

Employing only the most discerning and upscale local builders, additions include the front of the house where the current dining table is located, the front covered deck, stamped concrete pads and walkways, flowers and grass galore, the utility room, the 2 car garage, as well as the back of the house with an added living room, bedroom, and ½ bath. All the major work was permitted, and the house has been meticulously maintained throughout the years. 

The front west-facing deck provides shade for cool summer nights watching the birds and wildlife. The back east facing deck is perfect for morning coffee and watching the animals roam through the community open space.

From the deep 2 car garage, mature trees and landscaping, to the large shed to store tools, you will lose track of time with all the great outdoor living spaces. 

Two separate living rooms, and 2 rooms separated by the kitchen/dining area help you and your guests feel private and peace and quiet. The laundry room has a full size washer/dryer, and deep freezer, and it all makes the tiny cabin feel like you are ‘living large’.

Landscaped by the current owners, there are mature aspen and spruce planted decades ago to provide privacy and shade.  There is room enough for a few more cars in the driveway, and ample storage for all your toys and tools in the sheds.

Big River Ranch is a small community with shared fishing access on the Rio Grande River. NO RENTALS ALLOWED and a private gated entry helps maintain a close knit community.

Shared septic is on for use from May 15 to October 15.  It’s an easy ‘show up and leave’ kind of place where you don’t have to worry about a thing while you’re away!

HOA dues cover water & sewer (May to October), trash service, and common area maintenance. You only pay separately for electricity and Wi-Fi.

The playground is just outside your front door, and picnic tables are just around the corner for making mountain memories.

Wild turkeys, deer, fox, bear, and so much more also call this place home.

Located between Creede and South Fork, across from the Blue Creek Lodge, high speed internet and Wi-Fi are available.
