Discover your lasting legacy and next epic adventure in the San Juan Mountains at the remarkable Opus Hut, a world-renowned backcountry destination nestled on ten pristine acres and surrounded by hundreds of thousands of acres of National Forest. Inspired by lodges of the Alps, Andes and Himalaya's, Opus Hut has served as a beacon to outdoor enthusiasts from six continents, all eager to ski, mountain bike, climb, trek, trail run, hunt, and reconnect with nature in this absolute world class destination. Meticulously crafted over the past decade, Opus Hut is an off-grid, eco-friendly property boasting a photovoltaic solar electric system, solar-thermal in-floor heating, and water collection, storage and filtration system.
The sustainable resort was a true labor of love, constructed from hand-hewn, reclaimed hardwood, flown in by helicopter or dragged to 11,700 feet through rocky and often snow-covered mountain terrain.
Surrounded by countless mountain peaks and glades of evergreens, the main lodge is 2300 square feet of mountain modern design. A cozy and intimate main floor features a quaint kitchen with Amish wood cookstove and dining room for up to twenty, while the remaining two levels of the home are occupied by a lounge area, two wood fire stoves, five bedrooms and two bathrooms. Sunlit peaks back the home's two decks which provide space for quiet reflection and intimate conversation.
The newly built, neighboring caretaker unit is 488 square feet between its two levels, offering staff two bedrooms, and a kitchen with antique wood and gas cookstove.
Restorative and relaxing, the third building is a 168 square foot, wood-fired sauna serving as the perfect place to warm your muscles with its cedar lining and incredible deck views, teasing the adventure that lies ahead.
Encompassing the current Opus Hut business as well as the 10 acre inholding that it operates within, the opportunity to purchase a property like Opus Hut is rare, and seldom available on the open market. Use it to wipe the slate clean and let your own ideas unfold, or continue an iconic business forward in a hard-to-enter, and fast-growing industry.
