The Texan Resort Estates in The Rocky Mountains of the West
It's a way of experiencing the Rocky Mountain West that's all but disappearing from our
society. The Texan Resort Estates (Common Interest Community) is a unique collection of
contemporary rustic log cabins and log homes situated on the Lake Fork of the Gunnison
River, on the outskirts of Lake City, in Hinsdale County, Colorado. In an effort to
preserve this vanishing history of the American West, the Texan has been developed
into into common interest community elements (townhomes). Established in 1946, the various
summer vacation cabins are sited on spacious lots which allows for improvement and
expansion within the existing ambiance. There are large common areas on this campus
composed of grassy quadrangles, a playground, a picnic pavillion, and a walkway along all
of the shoreline of the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River.
A Majestic Landscape
At 8671 feet of altitude, The Texan Resort Estates sit at the gateway to the high
country which can readily be accessed by the Alpine Loop. This roadway offers access to some of the most
spectacular scenery in the San Juan Range of the Colorado Rockies. With 5 of Colorados famed fourteeners
(mountains of 14,000 ft or more elevations) within sight, the setting provides spectacular
views and endless opportunities for high mountain sports, hiking, sightseeing,
photography, fishing and hunting.
Lake City is located on Colorado State
Highway 149 between Gunnison and Creede. The Texan is situated at the south edge of the
Town of Lake City and is accessible by major highways, even though it is in the heart of
Hinsdale County which has more wild and roadless land per capita than anywhere else in the contiguous
U.S.(designated a Remote County.) Additionally there is a lot of spaciousness to go
around. It is designated as a Frontier County with less than 1 person per
square mile. In spite of its remote location, the Texan Resort Estates are within walking
distance of the town of Lake City which boasts one of the best collections of preserved
Victorian buildings in western Colorado.
A River Runs through it
Located at the foot of Crookes Falls, the Lake Fork of
the Gunnison River runs through the Texan property. The
river bank is a common area offering on-site fishing and extensive river walkpaths. Across the bridge to the neighboring side of the
river, a 1 acre recreation and fishing lake is under construction.
A Cabin Neighborhood
The Texan Resort Estates are one of the few remaining cabin and log home villages in the
western Rockies. Our cabins and log homes are constructed in a contemporary rustic style
designed to capture a western mountain motif and spirit of times past. Our collection of 38 cabins and log homes offer a
wide variety of choices. Units range in size from 1 to 9 beds. Several different types of
logs and natural log construction styles are used throughout the property.
As a structure, a cabin was a necessity for survival in early American life. Today, a
cabin is an invitation to step back in time to a simpler way of living. At the Texan you can escape from the hectic pace of modern life. Here you can
enjoy the unspoiled beauty of a pristine landscape with clear mountain air, crystal clear
water, and starry nights. The Texan offers a
unique opportunity to embrace a piece of American history while at the same time, enjoying
the pleasures of modern life.
