Swim, Boat, Fish, or just Relax

Nature Preserve

Along with Pelican Shores Lake, the gated community offers a walking trail along the St. Vrain river. Local wildlife including water birds such as great blue herons, pelicans and ibis are prevalent. Other birds such as a variety of warblers, blue jays, finches and common robins, starlings and sparrows inhabit the area as well. You will also see hawks, peregrine falcons and even locally nesting golden eagles. Red fox, coyotes, mule deer, muskrat, rabbits, raccoons and turtles are friendly neighbors.

A unique opportunity not to be missed!

Don't miss this rare opportunity to live on a beautiful lakefront lot perched below majestic Rocky Mountain vistas. Pelican Shores is not just another community, but more like a permanent vacation. Live your dreams every day waterskiing after work, tubing with the kids, fishing, or just having an evening bar-b-que while soaking in the beautiful Colorado sunsets.


Good friends and glassy smooth water all to yourself. What more could you want? Teach the kids to ski without worrying about any other boats, or challenge yourself on the Pelican Shores Lake Slalom Course. The lake and slalom course is set up for minimal wave concentration providing ideal waterskiing conditions.


Think a weekend of wakeboarding involves a two-hour drive, a wait on the boat ramp and early mornings to avoid the crowds? Think again. Go ahead and sleep in- the smooth water will be waiting for you. Crowds? The only ones competing with you for big air will be the local geese and pelican population.


When the kids get tired of making sandcastles and swimming on their own private beach, drag out the tube and whip them around the lake.


Many game fish inhabit the lake. The shore is open and will allow fly-fishing as well as casting. Early mornings and late evenings offer great fishing, quiet solitude for fisherman, and the endless circles on the surface caused by hungry fish. Troll from the boat if you'd like.

Pelican Luxuries

In addition to the 54 acre lake, Pelican Shores South also offers 30 acres of open space and trails. A common boat ramp and recreation area are among the common amenities onsite, all maintained by the professionally managed HOA. Grocery stores, restaurants and banks are one mile away, and I25 is just 3 miles, providing quick access to large regional malls such as Centerra and Flatiron Crossing. We're located in the St. Vrain school district, attending top ranked Mead elementary, middle and high school. And when you're not out on the lake, try one of five nearby golf courses. Water and sewer taps, phone, cable, and internet are all located on each lot for your convenience.

Your Own Boat House

Private boathouses, docks or boatlifts may be built behind each property. Forget the trailer, driving to the boat, waiting in line at the boat ramp. Instead, take a few steps out the backdoor. Gaze at the glassy smooth water. Hit the switch on the boatlift and watch your ski boat drop into the water. Minutes later you're enjoying your private paradise on the water.

Your Own Private Beach

Every lot at Pelican Shores backs to the lake. You're free to landscape your own beach—add a little white, soft sand (locally available and very reasonable) and you'll transport yourself to the Caribbean. Maybe add a hot tub and a grill and suddenly you may begin to think the indoors are vastly overrated. Cast a line in the water while you watch the kids build record setting sand castles. Or perhaps just read a good book. It's all…in your backyard, literally.

A Secure Private Lake Community

An electric gated to the community ensures your privacy. An automatic transmitter will automatically admit residents, while guests can use the convenient dial by name directory or enter a pass code.
