Perfectly situated to experience the high Colorado mountain skies and air; Sleeping Bear Lodge envelops the true Colorado dream. The incredible timbers, the extensive landscaping and well thought out living spaces with views from every direction make clear the planning that went into this one of a kind home and property. Sleeping Bear Lodge Built in 2001, this home was designed by professional designer Ken Pieper of Evergreen, Colorado. As is evident upon visiting Sleeping Bear, Ken pays strict attention to the ”lay of the land,” when designing a home. Ken constructs from the ground up…from the moss rock that is so prevalent throughout the property, complementing nature’s beauty and the way the home fits the environment. Just as Sleeping Bear grows from the moss rock, a four feet tall moss rock dry stack lines the seven-hundred feet driveway leading up to the house. Sixteen inch hand-hewn logs on either side of the entry and a hand carved walnut front door welcome you. Once inside, attention to detail is everywhere, notably the special attention to the ceiling treatments. Above the great room and library is an intricate design of twelve inch log trusses. Beautiful wood ceilings can be found in almost every room, along with wide plank flooring, six inch baseboard trim and three inch trim around all windows and doors. A cathedral ceiling in the great room is dominated by a floor to ceiling moss rock fireplace and hand carved mantle. The large second floor game room provides more than ample space for all sorts of recreation and activities, as well as TV or video viewing. The second floor master suite is a quiet retreat with its own private deck, whirlpool bath, oversized shower, and walk-in closet.The beauty of the surroundings is abundantly highlighted with the professional landscaping that was installed over the years. Flowering shrubs, perennials and other plant material native to the area thrive alongside the original pines and scrub oak and junipers. From the east deck looking toward Fishers Peak in Trinidad and the west deck looking toward the East Spanish Peak, one can enjoy unobstructed vistas of stunning sunsets and starry nights.
