Lake City is paradise. We are so lucky to live and work in one of the most beautiful, mountain communities in the world with pristine rivers and great opportunities for winter fun. Thus, we can't find a good reason to really leave. Okay, so maybe for family matters and to fish saltwater in the winter, but most of the time, we're here! When we're not, we're usually somewhere pretty remote without email, but you can still try to contact us anytime. Oh, and once in awhile we play hooky to fish or ski, so leave a message, we'll call you back!
