Hotchkiss, Colorado—best place to live in Colorado? 

Hotchkiss was recently named as one of the top-ten “best places to live in Colorado”, and the reasons are obvious. The climate is gorgeous, with over 150 frost-free days and 300 days of sunshine a year. At 5,600 feet in elevation, the area is known as the “banana belt” in Colorado because of its mild year-round climate. Winter days are often in the 50’s and 60’s, and summer days usually hover around high 80’s and low 90’s, with a few hot days in the high 90’s and low 100’s each year. This property has a great solar aspect, with lots of sunshine and big views. Rogers Mesa, where this home is located, is known as one of the gardening and fruit-growing hotspots in Colorado, famous for its organic vegetables, peaches, cherries, apples, and wine grapes. The garden area on this property has several fruit trees, including peaches.

North Fork Valley—recreation hotspot in Colorado

Colorado is famous for recreation, and this property is no exception. The world-famous Black Canyon of the Gunnison is accessible just a few miles west of the property, with Gold Medal flyfishing for trophy trout, rafting, and recreating. The surrounding mountains offer excellent hunting for elk and mule deer in several well-known over-the-counter (no drawing necessary for elk tags) Game Management Units. To the south and east are GMU’s 53 and 63, famous for trophy-class mule deer and elk; to the north are GMU’s 521, 52, and 411, which stretch from McClure Pass all the way to the west side of the Grand Mesa. The Grand Mesa is easily accessible via Leroux Creek to the north of the property, with hundreds of thousands of acres of public lands and 300 lakes full of trout. It’s also known as one of the best snowmobiling areas in the United States, with a network of hundreds of miles of trails. If skiing is your passion, Hotchkiss is centrally located between Aspen, Telluride, and Crested Butte, each about two hours away. Powderhorn, a small local ski area, is only about 45 minutes away on the north slope of the Grand Mesa.

home is ideally located for schools, medical services, and airports 

For the busy family or businessman, this property is ideally located. Schools, banks, grocery store, medical clinic, eye doctor, and restaurants are only a mile away in Hotchkiss. Delta County Memorial Hospital, with a variety of specialists, is 20 minutes from the home, and there is a DCMH branch clinic less than a mile from the home, which is all on one level and can easily be retrofitted for handicap access. Hotchkiss schools are well known for strong academic performance and athletic programs, including football, wrestling, track, cross-country, soccer, volleyball, basketball, tennis, and even golf. Regional airports in Montrose and Grand Junction are 45 minutes and 1 hour, respectively, with direct and connecting flights to major destinations.
