Historic corporate retreat near Steamboat Springs redone for family life, listed for $4.95 million

Roughly midway between Kremmling and Steamboat Springs, where the forest meets the shore of crystal clear Agnes Lake, sits a place that’s nothing short of a hunter’s Garden of Eden. It’s called Rabbit Ears Lodge, and it’s on the market for $4,950,000.

The nearly 38-acre property is thick with wildlife, including eagles, elk, deer and trout. Inside the house — hidden behind a bank-vault door — is a private shooting range.

“It’s very much a sportsman’s property,” said Kentwood Cherry Creek listing agent Ann Baumgarter. “You have lake in front and Arapaho National Forest is in the back. You can hunt out your back door and fish out your front door. It’s kind of a paradise for somebody who loves to explore and be outside.”

The interior of the five bedroom, nine bathroom lodge is luxurious without feeling imposing. The warm, casual style encourages bare feet and leisurely mornings spent over coffee. There are nine fireplaces — three of them are wood-burning, the rest are gas. The spacious sauna will hold you and nine of your closest friends.
