Rocky Mountain Wilderness Enclave with Proximity to Aspen

Embracing all of the elan of Aspen, but with privacy and seclusion afforded more remote properties, this 82+ acre ranch style estate displays why Colorado is one of the most desired locations for leisure and sport. Two well-stocked trout ponds, a clutch of beautifully outfitted authentic log cabin structures, stunning mountain views, and every comfort known to modern lifestyles, Elk Mountain Lodge is a superior choice for all who love wilderness as much as luxury.

The main home boasts 27 bedrooms, 26 baths, six half baths, and several lodge-like great rooms in its 14,987 square foot layout. An alpine inspired estate, Elk Mountain Lodge is perfect for family gatherings or corporate groups. Just 1.5 miles from one of the world’s great cross country ski routes, and 10 miles from the city of Aspen, it seems much further removed from civilization looking at the surroundings. The Pine Creek Cookhouse mountaintop restaurant and Ashcroft Ski Touring Center are both just over a mile from the property.

Four distinct parcels make up the acreage, with the main house and seven cabins on 52.2 acres, the 4-bedroom Crystal Lake House on 21 acres, the 3-bedroom American Lake House on 1.5 acres, and the 4-bedroom Ashcroft House on 7.4 acres, all of which may be considered individually. The main house has a four car heated garage.

Some very special features pamper guests with only the best, including numerous spas located around the retreat, a humidity controlled wine room, an outdoor basketball court, a fitness center, tennis court, and hot tub with superb views. All of that, in addition to the world class skiing, fishing, hunting, and hiking on the grounds and in the area contribute to a refined, rustic lifestyle among the pines of the Rocky Mountain west.

Offered by Doug Elliman and Associates agent Jason Saslove, this is a breathtaking property unlike any likely to come to the market in the next decade. For additional details about this exquisite western retreat, please contact Jason at
