DESCRIPTION MLS: Take a step back in time in this delightful bungalow built in 1890. It also has some outbuildings built in 1934 including an old barn, workshop/storage building and a single car garage. From the front of the house, you can see beautiful mountains to the south. Within 5 minutes walking time, you can be at the banks of the Arkansas River which is known for its gold medal trout fishing plus kayaking and rafting. There are two raft companies within a five minute drive of the cottage where you can raft Class 5 rapids. Walk another couple of minutes and you will be at the Cotopaxi General Store and Gas Station which is a gathering place for the locals. In addition to gas, you can get hardware supplies, food supplies, snacks, ice cream and numerous hot items prepared when you order. Other local attractions within an hour’s drive or less are Salida, Westcliffe, Royal Gorge Bridge & Park, and Royal Gorge Train. And in season you can pluck apples, apricots, peaches, crabapples and choke cherries right from the trees. The only drawback is that a portion of the house because of its age sits on the ground, with new supports underneath it but it has faired very well for over 130 years. This home definitely makes a great second home or vacation rental.
