Guestbook comments from the owner
These are a few comments that I pulled from our Cabin LogBook.“You all have a beautiful place. A lovely, peaceful, spot. More beautiful than we could have imagined. Thank you for this experience.” The Finns, 2005“What a fantastic week! Lots of laughter. We all conquered new things! We made some great memories here. Good memories: Belly laughs while sledding down the hill and crashing into the snow banks. The amazing star-filled sky. Seeing the children learn to ski.” The Wybles, 2006“This is an awesome cabin in a beautiful location. The pictures we saw didn’t do it justice. This is a great place for family bonding. Every night was new games and puzzles. ………We thank you for this opportunity to take our family to God’s country and enjoy nature at it’s best.” The Heberts, 2007“We ventured out and explored central and front range Colorado. Our highlights: drive to Buckskin Gulch and hiking up Mt. Democrat, white water rafting in Buena Vista, the scenic route up Boreas Pass and Sprague Lake. There are many great spots to be explored! God has left incredible places to touch our souls. Thank you so much!” The Youngs, 2007“Whenever I think of the words relaxing and peaceful, I will always think of this place. … I think my favorite part was being in a place with no TV or computer surrounded by all this beauty. It is truly a special place and a great spot to make great memories. We can’t wait to come back…” The Lingles, 2005

While living in Colorado Springs, JP and Michelle decided to pursue our dream of a cabin in the mountains. We knew the day would come when we'd move back to Lafayette, LA to be closer to family. We hoped that when the day for the move came, we'd be able to keep our mountain cabin. Now we enjoy family vacations to the mountains for ski trips and to escape the heat and humidity of summertime in Louisiana. Sharing our cabin with VRBO renters has been another blessing.

JP MacFadyen purchased this cabin in 2005

We chose Park County so we could be in the mountains without all the craziness of a tourist town. We love visiting the museums and shops in Fairplay during the summer. And we ski at Breckenridge, Keystone, A-basin, Vail and Monarch in the winter. Fairplay is centrally located for excellent fishing in the summer. It's a 1.5 hour drive from either Denver or Colorado Springs.

Our cabin is located on 3 acres in the Sun Mountain sub-division. We love the quiet! So quiet that you can hear your ears ringing! Our time at the cabin is a time to unplug from the rest of the world. No TVs or internet connections here. Just lots of family time around the wood stove, games, storytelling, reading and walks in the woods.

Great cabin for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic find!!! We (4 families) all loved the cabin. Location is great and the cabin was very clean and well stocked with anything we needed for daily use. There was private sleeping space for each family. We also brought a blow-up mattress for the unfinished room downstairs which was also a usable space. Adults could enjoy talking space on the deck or family room after the kids went to bed. The kitchen was spotless and so well stocked from spices to oils. Amazing! The location is great and we took advantage of Breckenridge's water park, Mt. Sherman 14,000ft. climb, Linder Tree hike, rafting on the Arkansas, horse back riding ( Platte Ranch Double B Riding Stables), South Park City and kids ice cream cones on the old main in Fairplay. The kids (12-1) loved hanging out and playing cards and creating things from the well stocked craft drawer. The barbecue grill was supplied with charcoal ready for our cookout. The owner is great to work with and communicates promptly. Our dream is to return someday.

What a fabulous cabin! Clean, well equipped, cozy and safe. Very clear directions on running the heating options and other cold weather tips....being from the south this was new to us. The kids played for hours in the snow and teepee. The hallway is set up to allow you to keep all of your snow clothes there to dry. The wood burning stove was absolutely fabulous. The stereo was programmed to a fantastic station that we enjoyed. The kitchen was well equipped. She had all stuff needed to run a household....laundry soap, dish washing soap, even shampoo at our disposal. The snowplow guy kept the driveway clear for us without us ever having to call. We really enjoyed Fairplay...very cool downtown district. The Asian restaurant was very good.

Great place for family gathering

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the cabin. It was peaceful and it was great being in God's majestic mountains with family. The owner was very responsive and communicated well. We would definitely stay there again.

We did both some lake and river fishing, played lots of board games and even got to see some new snow in the mountains. Temperatures were cool for August, but that was what we wanted. We didn't hike like we had planned so if you have some suggestion for that area, please share.

Great vacation rental

  • 5 of 5
The cabin is in an excellent location for a family vacation. The cabin is as described, as well as clean, comfortable and well equipped. Our family of eight - 6 adults, a 5 year old and 12 year old had more than enough room. Nice shelf of books, and toys for the children. The property is close to rafting, hiking, excellent fishing, restaurants, beautiful scenery and tourist attractions. Lots of wildlife viewing in the area; we even had a bull moose visit us in the back yard! It was so peaceful to spend a week without television and enjoy each others company. We highly recommend this cabin as a wonderful vacation destination

Very Nice Property

  • 5 of 5
The mountain cabin was just perfect. It is reasonably spacious. There were 12 in our party with plenty of room to relax, sleep and enjoy this beautiful home. Everything worked according to directions. We always recommend you bring extra paper plates and napkins. There were more than enough cooking utensils. There were many towels. Bring a coat. Even in the heat of July, up on the mountain it still gets chilly. We sat outside most evenings and enjoyed the solitude and peace. We brought extra lawn chairs, which were needed. This is a nice home and the owner JP was most gracious and kind. The old town in Fairplay was a delight to walk around. The local grocery store was nicely stocked. We fished Weston Pass and did fair. The next day we hit the reservoir above Alma and limited out very quickly. (power bait off the bottom) The more it rained the better the fish were biting. We also visited Breckenridge, walking around the numerous, though pricy shops and then took our children up to the alpine slide. The gondola ride to the alpine slide is FREE and worth it just to walk around and enjoy the ski resort. The price for one slide down the hill was $18 per person. Breckenridge Brewery was a welcome place after all the adventures and the many choices of beer was a welcome refreshment to the afternoon. Come and enjoy Fairplay and make this wonderful, quaint cabin your resting place.
