Yes, we do offer WiFi. 

THE WOLF DEN in Twin Lakes, Colorado, sits in a quiet cove of aspen and pine just minutes away from Mount Elbert’s “South Elbert” trailhead and a 30-minute drive to Ski Cooper in Leadville.

On 6 acres, this spacious home offers 5 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. Floor-to-ceiling windows and an open layout maximize the home’s incredible 180-degree views of Mt. Elbert, Hope Pass and the glacial waters of Twin Lakes.

Listen to the buzz of summertime hummingbirds while sitting on the expansive flagstone patio. Or watch as a red fox explores fresh snow right outside the master bedroom window. Soak in Colorado flora and fauna at its finest!

The Wolf Den sleeps 8 in its main house with additional room for 2 in a private (yet attached) garage apartment — allowing guests to either spread out or come together for meals, conversation or board games in multiple living areas.

After a day spent hiking, cycling, paddling, rafting, fishing, snowshoeing or skiing, you will truly unwind when you sink into one of our crisp and clean guest beds. Read more about sleeping arrangements in each bedroom on the left side of this screen.

well-appointed modern kitchen and outdoor gas grill make it easy to cook for a hungry crowd. Dine at the large kitchen table or opt outside, where a dining table, chairs and unbeatable views create an unforgettable family dinner setting.

After dinner, roast s’mores on the outdoor fire pit, stargaze from the bubbling hot tub or curl up with a good book in the living room equipped with a gorgeous moss rock gas fireplace. Also found in the living room: a large flatscreen TV with DVD player and movies.

The “Den” is our family’s basecamp for backcountry Colorado adventure, and we hope you will consider it for your next Colorado getaway or ski vacation.
