Pole Creek Meadows Single-Family Home Subdivision Boasts Multi-Acre Lots, Open Space, Paved Roads and Sweeping Views

A mountain home on a spacious lot covered in pine, aspen, and spruce trees is a little slice of paradise. Couple that with expansive views of the Continental Divide and Indian Peaks, and the Pole Creek Meadows neighborhood just south of Highway 40 in Tabernash offers the epitome of mountain living. The quiet community of single-family homes is centrally-located with opportunities for adventure both out-the-door and minutes away.

The master-planned community's 103 lots sit on approximately 450 acres, with almost one-third of the neighborhood designated as open space. Paved, well-maintained roads wind through the cozy, secluded subdivision. And the multi-acre lots really give you that getting-away-from-it-all experience so many seek in a mountain home. Lot sizes range from two to 10 acres, with the majority of the larger lots located closest to Highway 40.  

Not to be confused with nearby Fairways at Pole Creek or Pole Creek Valley, Pole Creek Meadows is its own distinct development and governed by a homeowners association specific to the community. 


Conveniently located off Highway 40 in Tabernash, the majority of Pole Creek Meadows is nestled between County Road 5 (dubbed the "4 Bar 4 Road" by locals) and the highway, with a smaller fraction of the lots across County Road 5 and adjacent to The Fairways at Pole Creek.

This unincorporated area of Grand County is a short hour and half drive from Denver, minutes from Pole Creek Golf Club and a 15-minute drive to Winter Park or Granby, Pole Creek Meadows offers quick access to the Front Range and convenience to all the adventure Grand County has to offer. You can be skiing the Nordic trails at Snow Mountain Ranch in 10 minutes, and the three lakes region (Lake Granby, Shadow Mountain Reservoir, and Grand Lake) as well as Rocky Mountain National Park are all within 30 minutes. And a just over 15 minute ride can bring you to Granby Ranch, Grand Elk Golf, Devil's Thumb Ranch, and Winter Park Resort! It truly is one of the best locations for a base camp to ski, hike, bike, fish, snowmobile, and boat from Winter Park to Grand Lake!


All utilities in Pole Creek Meadows are underground with access to gas, electric, and high-speed internet. Each home requires it's own well and septic system.

The neighborhood is on an a state-monitored "augmentation plan" for water rights. An augmentation plan is a proposal for replacing whatever water the well uses back into the stream system so that the existing water rights are not detrimentally affected. Part of the plan requires limited water consumption: well owners can irrigate no more than 1,000 square feet of lawn/landscape area, and total water use is limited to approximately 118,000 gallons per year. Homeowners are responsible for reporting water usage monthly. 


The Pole Creek Meadows Homeowners Association requires a modest fee (currently $300/year, paid annually) helps maintain a well-cared-for neighborhood while still giving homeowners their own opportunity for expression. The architectural design guidelines require natural materials, steep roof pitches, colors that blend with the landscape, and varied structural forms that adapt to the "topography and vistas of the site." While the guidelines help create a space that natural aligns with the mountain landscape, they leave plenty of room to create the mountain home that suits your personal style. 

The HOA stipulates all homes are single-family residences (read: renting out a room or apartment is off the table). But if you're looking to invest in an income property or help make having a second home a reality, short-term rentals with three-day minimum stays are allowed. 

Many of the HOA covenants seek to create a quiet, aesthetically consistent community. Trailers and construction equipment need to be stored elsewhere or in a garage. Recreational vehicles and camping trailers can be stored on site for a cumulative period of 120 days per calendar year. And motorized vehicles are not allowed on the open space (even if it might be tempting for a snowmobile to lay in some fresh tracks)!

The HOA also works with the county to ensure all roads in the community are paved, maintained, and plowed. As a result, Pole Creek Meadows was designated a "Public Improvement District" in 2012. As a result, all owners' property tax includes an additional 17.6 mills annually.
