Mesa Cortina is a single family, residential neighborhood located at the base of Buffalo Mountain in Silverthorne. Actually, it is not within the town of Silverthorne boundary but is considered Silverthorne. National Forest borders the neighborhood on two sides and open space between Mesa Cortina and Wildernest. It has a nice feeling of seclusion without being way out in the boonies. The homes are situated on 1/3 or 1/2 acre lots which allow for a little more elbow room than a lot of the closer in neighborhoods.
Mesa Cortina is made up of three subdivisions, Mesa Cortina, Mesa Cortina West and Cortina Sub. There is another subdivision, Cortina Ridge, that is located in the same general area but is not included in the Mesa Cortina homeowner’s association. Homes in this subdivision are generally a little higher priced and many are on the edge of the hill overlooking the town of Silverthorne and Lake Dillon.
Mesa Cortina has low HOA dues, just $100 a year, and an association that is active but not over the top. There are architectural guidelines for homes being built and rules about fences but overall a pretty easy HOA. Water is provided from a community well and is a little higher priced than water supplied from the town. There is a sewer system and Comcast cable/internet is available in the area. Gas and electric service is provided by Xcel Energy.
The neighborhood consists of about 260 lots, 36 of which are still vacant. Homes range from small A-frames to large homes around 5,000 square feet and everything in between. They can from the 1960’s or 70’s or built recently. No matter your preference there’s sure to be something you like in this neighborhood.
With National Forest land all around, wildlife is abundant here. Fox are seen frequently around the neighborhood. Moose are known to come through on occasion and late at night mountain lion can be heard screaming off in the distance. An occasional deer herd may come by as well. Just keep an eye out and you are sure to see animals around.
The Mesa Cortina Trail runs through the National Forest next to the neighborhood. From there you can hike to Willow Falls, Buffalo Cabins or the top of Buffalo Mountain. You can connect to the Gore Trail and make your way anywhere from Kremmling to Copper Mountain or even Vail.
