Are you a person that loves to sit by a fire with a cup of hot chocolate (or a Hot Toddy) while snowflakes cover the landscape making all seem quiet and ready for peace? Are you someone that just cant wait to grab a snowboard and skid along the top of white powder? Or, try your hand at jumping boulders with two sticks strapped to your feet?
If so, then you know that it seems almost impossible that you could still buy more than a postage stamp worth of land for a decent price anywhere near Breckenridge, Vail or Fairplay, Colorado but you can!
When the interstate was run across the state, Hartsel was bypassed and even though, its only 55 miles north to Interstate 70 leading either to Denver or to Breckenridge. Just as when the route of the railroad across the nation determined which towns would flourish and which would stagnate, the interstate did the same in mid-twentieth century America.
With the advent of the internet and the desire of many people to discover the nooks and crannies that are not hugging the highways, towns like Fairplay and Hartsel are coming into their own.
Its more than just ranch land - the main thing that youre likely to hear from the entrenched generation. The truth is that this area of Colorado has limitless possibilities for those who want to create their own version of the good life. As with anything worthwhile, it will take time, imagination and effort but this is one of the few places left that is available at a reasonable price point.
Part of living a well-balanced life is taking the time to discover, explore and share the simple things that life offers.
If youre a fisherman, taking time out fish from a single-person raft in Antero Reservoir just outside Hartsel during the spring and summer makes for a great place to return calls and answer emails. Wouldnt it be fun to have an office meeting here?
The convenience of this area of Colorado (after you build your own home) is one of its best assets. For snowboarders and skiers, Steamboat Springs is only a 3 hour drive and during the summer scoot down to the Great Sand Dunes National Park (2 hours away) and kick up some sand sledding down the drifts.
Fairplay is the nearest developed community where you can shop for groceries and other needs. Even though on the map, its 29 miles, the speed limit allows you to arrive there in about 10 minutes. If you currently live in a city of any size, thats about how long it takes you to get to the market anyway.
The bad news is that you will need some form of transportation car, truck, off-road scooter, 4-wheeler or snowmobile are some of the favorites. There are towns in Colorado where kids ride snowmobiles to school because the school buses can get to them! The good news is that no one is going to judge you according to the make, model or newness of the mode you choose.
Fairplay has what they call Burro Days where they have shootouts and locals dress up in styles from the 1880s which opens with the Burro Days Parade where Burros prove that they are more stubborn than humans. If you love running, the Burro Run and Llama Run provide a new twist to finishing times.
For American Football enthusiasts, Denvers Bronco stadium is a mere 1.5 hours from your hometown. If you are among the many new advocates of MLS Soccer, the Colorado Rapids play in Denver as well.
Hartsel, Co doesnt look like much right now. Actually, Hartsel looks exactly like every high-country, high plains town before some imaginative young couple saw its unique potential (and, the sheriff moved out!).
One thing that the residents of Hartsel do have is a great sense of humor and a special love for the wide-open spaces that caress their souls day after day. There is a reason that the locals tell you that their town is the Heart of Colorado. It sits on the crossroads to Breckenridge, Vail and Fairplay to its north and Colorado Springs, Pueblo and Raton Pass to the south.
If youre thinking this would be a good time to buy a horse, you should know that horses eat while you sleep unlike cars. If youve never owned a horse, do some basic research on the illnesses and expenses before you get too excited.
If you have the ingenuity to create a world from scratch, to develop a business from the seed of a concept and are eager to make this world a better place, consider country acreage in Colorado that is a bit outside the standard amenities.
