Property Description

Badger Creek Retreat is a hidden gem recreational mountain retreat just outside the mountain community of Salida and only 3 miles above the Arkansas River corridor. This 150 Ac parcel with stunning views of the Sangre De Cristo mountain range is completely secluded and surrounded by and within the midst of public lands. Outdoor activities abound! Go fly fishing on 1/3 mile of the sparkling clear Badger Creek that ribbons through the property supporting healthy riparian vegetation along with a rich fishery and runs year-round at minimum 6 csf, hunt for elk or deer, mountain bike or hike on the endless number of trails, use your ATV on the miles of BLM roads surrounding property or just relax for some wildlife viewing including an amazing variety of birds - eagles that return yearly to nest and hunt the creek corridor! Nirvana!! Livestock is allowed with domestic well rights and multiple hydrants with newer solar efficient well pump and 2 large cisterns for storage up to 4800 gal. Stay cozy in the off grid, rustic 2660 SF energy efficient home with active/passive solar energy, septic and user friendly kitchen. Use the elevated creekside studio/workshop as a yoga or meditation retreat while listening to the soothing sound of the creek. The Stewardship of the land is perpetually protected with a conservation easement to preserve the wide range of habitat, wildlife, open spaces, scenic enjoyment and its agricultural values while providing the added benefit of incredibly low property taxes. Access to the property for the last 3 miles is a very rugged 4-wheel drive only road; owners are afforded the right to improve and maintain the access. Property is accessed from Forest/BLM road 5965 (Powerline Rd) from Wellsville; do not trespass property boundaries without licensed broker accompaniment and scheduled appointment.
