The Retreat is a log cabin overlooking Empire Gulch near Leadville, Colorado

Located in: Leadville
(Updated June 13, 2019)
Escape to this high elevation destination. Enjoy the drive with the last two miles open via four wheel drive or all wheel drive vehicles.
During the winter months, we are accessible via Snowmobile, Snowshoe, RZR or Ski In, Ski out only. We are the perfect backcountry getaway for outdoor enthusiasts and for high altitude training . Generally we are accessible from early June thru early November (and only then) by four wheel or all wheel drive vehicle.

The Retreat is located seven miles south of Leadville, within the Paddock State Wildlife Area which is about 1300 acres. There are several 14,000 ft peaks nearby. Mt. Sherman is the closest. There are many miles of mining, forestry and county roads both for the extreme athlete and the snowmobile or ATV enthusiast. In addition, there are many bike and foot trails. During snow season, many miles of trails are groomed for cross country skiing or snowmobile riding. No matter what time of year, this is a beautiful place!

The Retreat is a modern log cabin with running hot and cold water for showers and cooking, in the backcountry located on Long & Derry hill overlooking Empire Gulch. The cabin sleeps four comfortably and is luxurious by back county standards. The area is filled with old growth forest and a few scars on the land, the only remaining evidence of the once popular mining economy. The cabin is nestled between 14,000 foot peaks including the two tallest mountains in Colorado, Mt. Elbert and Mt. Massive. Our southern exposure gives us sunny afternoons and a view of Mt. Hope. The area is very quiet. The few sounds you may hear are passing ATV’s and snowmobiles or dog sled teams. The property includes both mature pine and aspen forest that turn a special gold for a few days each fall.

The cabin features modern plumbing and electricity via a water cistern and a solar array.
You should interpret this to mean that while we do have running water and electricity, both are in limited supply since the cabin is completely off grid. We do have Dish TV and satellite internet service. The kitchen features a gas stove and microwave oven and is outfitted with the most common cooking utensils as well as linens for the bathroom, beds and kitchen. The cabin is heated by a wood stove and wood is supplied. We do run a generator on the property about six hours a day to charge the solar batteries and to do general chores.

The elevation is near 11,000 feet above sea level. Altitude sickness is not uncommon for persons from lower elevations. Due to geographic location, please be aware: “ALPINE CONDITIONS EXIST ALL YEAR LONG”! During snow season, hazards always exist under the snow. Snow can happen any day of the year. Slippery, uneven surfaces are the norm. Please come prepared with proper foot wear and trail gear.
