Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Cuchara - Casa Friede

Clean, Cozy, Well-kept, 3 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom Home With Mountain Views.

Great family-friendly mountain home that can sleep up to 9. Enter the home on the 2nd level into the living area with spacious family room overlooking Mt. Lindsay and Mt. Blanca. Stay cozy in the cold weather with electric baseboard heating and/or with the modern wood stove. Enjoy cooking in the kitchen overlooking the beautifully landscaped yard. Kitchen is fully equipped with refrigerator (ice trays), built in oven, microwave, electric stove with griddle, and dishwasher. There is also a toaster and coffee maker for your convenience. Enjoy meals in the dining room overlooking the mountain view or outside on the deck. Relax in the solarium taking in the serene alpine setting through the wall of windows or have fun playing games. A full bath with shower is located just off the solarium. Outside upper deck with deck chairs is accessible from the solarium. All the bedrooms are downstairs. Master bedroom with king-size bed, full, in-suite bath (sunken tub), second bedroom with 2 single twin beds, third bedroom with a twin over double bunk bed. Full bath in downstairs hall (shower) serves both second and third bedrooms. Also available are 2 twin cots that can be placed wherever desired in the house and used to sleep two additional people.

Full size washer and dryer are located in downstairs hall for all your laundry needs.

The yard surrounding Casa Friede has been painstakingly landscaped over the years by the former owners and adds to the charm of the home. In addition to the upper deck, there is a lower deck area with bench seating where you can sit, enjoy the lovely yard and listen to the wind rushing through the trees.

Wildlife is abundant in Forbes Park as are the opportunities to enjoy it. Access to San Isabel National Forest is available from within the Park. You can walk the many roads within the development and enjoy some of the 5,000 acres of protected common land which includes meadows, streams, forests, lakes and beaver ponds. Also available in Forbes Park are many miles of hiking, cross country skiing, and mountain biking.

Visit Great Sand Dunes National Park only 45 minutes away. You'll be amazed at the massive sand dunes and will feel like you are in the middle of a desert. You can get up close and personal and climb the dunes and enjoy the creek that runs through it during the spring and early summer. This is one of our family's favorite spots in Colorado.

Also within 2 hours are several ski areas (see link below for more info) that you can take a day trip and enjoy. La Veta and Cuchara are about an hour or less drive from Casa Friede and offer local dining, shopping and entertainment options fun for all ages.

We invite you to come experience Casa Friede and explore beautiful Southern Colorado.

About Michelle Kuhtenia

My husband, David and I (Michelle) currently live in Central Ohio with our 3 children. David fell in love with Colorado and the Rocky Mountains many moons ago when he went on his first hiking trip. A few years ago, while surfing the internet looking for potential property in Colorado, he discovered Forbes Park. He visited the area several times then brought me along. We both agreed this was a great place to buy a vacation home, and the rest is history!

Michelle Kuhtenia purchased this house in 2013

Why Michelle Kuhtenia chose Cuchara

We started our search in Forbes Park by looking at available lots with the intent to build; however, when we were shown Casa Friede on a whim, we fell in love with the house. The former (and original) owner was so nice and had kept up the house so beautifully that we decided to continue their legacy in the name of the house.

What makes this house unique

The fact that Forbes Park has access to San Isabel national forest, is within around 2 hours or less of several nice ski areas, and is close to a host of other options for hiking, sightseeing, cross country skiing, etc. was very attractive to us. There are great options for either summer or winter activities for the whole family.

A Great Family Vacation

  • 5 out of 5
Our family recently spent a week-long, late summer vacation at Casa Friede and enjoyed every minute of it. We had a week to experience the property and the surrounding area including La Veta, Chuchara, Fort Garland, the Sand Dunes, Zapata Falls, Colorado Springs, and Taos, New Mexico.

The home was spotlessly clean and accurately depicted bythe online photos in the listing. The setting was satisfactorily remote, with great opportunity to enjoy the night-time sky. Nearby hiking, sight-seeing, and traditional Western attractions (horseback riding, off-road driving, wildlife viewing, etc.) were suitable for us and our elementary age children as well as their grandparents who joined us for a few days during the week.

Drive-time from the Colorado Springs airport was about 2.5 hours. We highly recommend Case Friede and its accommodating owners.

This is our family's first vacation experience nestled in the mountains with snow. Our excitement and expectation was not let down, from the time we saw the pictures on vrbo all the way until we finally left. Such a comfortable and beautiful place, at Christmas time! The owner's have to be professionals at this kind of stuff and taking care of people. We got what we were promised and more. Thank you

Forbes Park is a beautiful, gated 13,000 acre development located in the Sangre de Cristo mountains. It's far enough away from the hustle and bustle to be a fantastic get-away location, but close enough to civilization to offer lots of fun options for sightseeing, outdoor adventuring, shopping, dining or just relaxing and enjoying the gorgeous mountain views and wildlife.
