Paonia is a funky little mountain town situated on the west side of McClure Pass between Aspen and Crested Butte. It is known for its mild climate, with local vintners and orchardists growing apples, pears, plums, cherries, wine grapes, peaches, and apricots. Paonia is a hotspot for organic farming, with farmers raising honey, melons, garlic, hemp, lamb, beef, goats, garden vegetables, and even such crops as eggplant and artichokes. While Paonia is at 5,700 feet in elevation, this property is situated less than 3 miles southeast of town, right at the base of Mount Lamborn. The home sits at 6,300 feet and enjoys cool mountain thermals coming down from Mt. Lamborn on a warm summer night. Paonia is a vibrant town with a K-8 school, a couple of banks, several restaurants and brewpubs, quite a few churches, a couple of liquor stores, and a thriving business community. Paonia has a good paved airstrip with refueling services. Many private jet pilots stop off in Paonia on their way to Aspen because fuel is cheaper there.
