LeCook Homestead is a 80 acre ranch that was homesteaded in the late 1800’s. A single French Mountain man resided here, grew his own vegetables and hunted the land. Quiet, solitude ranch on the east side of the 11,427’ Twin Sisters Peaks. His home was submerged in a beautiful meadow surrounded by forest.
Today this land is owned by the Smitherman’s, which has been in the family since the 60’s. The land is at the end of a dirt road, surrounded by National Forest. Secluded, quiet and tranquil land with herds of elk passing through, birds flying overhead, hay field, with a 1800’ grass airstrip, 2 story hanger with a apartment and a precious efficiency cabin that looks to the east with radiating sunrises.
This property is completely off the grid, ran by solar panels and has a plentiful fresh mountain well. Even though it is off the grid we do have internet and a land line. It’s not the fastest internet but it works.
Hiking, mountain biking, walks along the airstrip and access out the front door to exploring the Rocky Mountain National Park, Allenspark and Estes Park is close by.
The cabin has a double bed, 2 burner propane stove, mini fridge and a hand pump sink. The bathroom is 75’ away from the cabin, across a wooden bridge, in the downstairs of the hanger.
LeCook Homestead is located 7 miles down a dirt road, off Route 7, close to the Longs Peak trailhead. As you drive down the dirt road you will pass Pearson Park road, Johnny Park and continue pass Parachute hill. These areas are National Forest land, where you can mountain bike, climb, dirt bike and hike. As you continue to drive to LeCook Homestead you pass old barns, old hay meadows to LeCook road. This road turns into a single lane road for 1.5 miles to LeCook Homestead. As you drive up and over the last hill, you get a glimpse of Longs Peak, Meeker Peak and the Indian Peaks, and then you have arrived to our private meadow surrounded by the forest.
