In 1998, when we explored the St. Mary’s area looking for a second home, being on the water was key for us. Although several properties on Lake Quivira were for sale at the time, we chose the creek side location – it afforded more privacy and seclusion, and the open area below the house gave us a great view of Mt. Evans in the distance.

Our ‘backyard’ is five acres, most of it streamside, much of it in stands of Engelmann Spruce, Lodge Pole Pine, and Balsam Fir.

On the north, our property abuts the road on the southern shore of Lake Quivira.
