REAL LOG CABIN ON 7 ACRES WITH STREAM, UP IN THE MOUNTAINS!

Fairplay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Roark Mountain is located just northwest of Fairplay Colorado in the high mountains on 7 acres of pine and aspen, with a stream and very near national forest.

In the winter months you can enjoy skiing at Breckenridge, Keystone, Arapahoe Basin, Copper Mountain, Vail, Beaver Creek, Ski Cooper, Monarch or Loveland. We're closest to Breckenridge, about 30 minutes, but the rest are well with in reach!

Summer provides opportunities for hiking, fishing, biking, gold panning, white water rafting and much more! Enjoy the challenge of hiking up a fourteener? We've got 'em! You can be white water rafting on the Arkansas in Buena Vista in less than an hour. The winding mountain roads are great for Harley rides or for exploring the many mountain passes of central Colorado.

High speed Internet is available with WIFI.

Enjoy the quaint shops of Fairplay, historic South Park along with all the services you might need. Fun in Fairplay last all summer from Burro Days to the "Ladies Harley Run" , 4th of July to the Rock & Gem show. Fariplay is the trout fishing capital of Colorado and while you can fish from your backyard, you may want to try the lake in Fairplay, Spinney, Eleven Mile, Terryal, Dillon & Antero. They're all within easy driving distance.

We've loved the Colorado mountains for many years! Staying at Roark Mountain provides you access to all the Rockies has to offer, whatever the season! Come relax, see stars like you've never seen before! Enjoy our "end of the road" get away! We know you will love it!

Note: We will not rent to vacationing students or singles under 25 years of age unless accompanied by an adult guardian or parent.

GREAT FAMILY GETAWAY!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 4 nights at the Roark cabin and had a WONDERFUL time! It was everything we hoped for and more. We enjoyed morning walks on the property each day, taking in the crisp mountain air and enjoying all the little critters that were out searching for breakfast. In the evenings we saw herds of elk and a few moose just a short drive from the cabin. Our dogs loved the back deck, which is completely closed off from the ground so they couldn't wander off. The stars were absolutely glorious each night and we thoroughly enjoyed getting chilled while star gazing and then coming in and warming ourselves by the fire. Our 2 yr old daughter woke up each morning asking to 'make a fire!', and she actually cried when it was time to go home because she didn't want to leave the 'cabin in the mountains'.

NICE HOME OFF THE BEATEN PATH

  • 5 of 5
I stay in this home for a few nights and it was comfortable and well equipped for some light cooking. I was looking for something "out" in the wilderness and this hit the mark. I would stay here again.

PEACEFUL PLACE IN THE MOUNTAINS

  • 5 of 5
Our family has found a wonderful get away! We have already booked our dates for next year! This cabin is cozy and nestled in the woods, with a stream that runs beside it and still very close to town. FairPlay is an adorable town with a variety of shops & local eateries. South Park City museum is a must when you are there. There is plenty of space to relax in the cabin and on the decks outside. The moose (CHARLIE) is what we named him was amazing to see so close to the cabin. Also noticed many song birds, a white fox and little chipmunks. There were many other surrounding town with great places to get away to and get out and adventure to! This was an idea location to stay at and still be able to choose to run and visit something new for the day and then return to relax!!

CABIN NEAR FAIRPLAY CO.

  • 5 of 5
Very relaxing and peaceful! Six adults included and we slept comfortably in 3 separate areas of the cabin. Very clean cabin and many home touches included. Dishes, decorations, tv trays, outdoor chairs, gas grill, etc. Much to do within minutes of the location...depending on time of year. Fun little towns nearby and mountains to explore. A MOOSE came on property just a feet away and grazed for an hour or two a fews days. Creek runs right outside your back door.....weather was great this time of year if you like to hike. We are going back! We called and made arrangements just after we left. That's says it all.

BEAUTIFUL LOCATION, THE ISSUES ARE IN THE DETAILS

  • 2 of 5
While the location is magnificent, there were a few pieces I wish I had known about the property. The house is pet friendly, which is great, but there is dog hair covering all of the upholstery and comforters. There are 2.5 bathrooms but one of the bathrooms which is in the open air loft does not have doors or complete walls, significantly limiting its privacy.

And while we understood the house may not have been rented in the off-season, when we entered the house, it was covered in cobwebs and there were food particles underneath most of the tables and chairs, requiring our group to clean it before we were able to enjoy it.
Finally, as a group that loves to cook, we should mention that the description of a fully ready kitchen is not accurate. We would suggest you bringing your own pans and ensure you bring every item you will need to cook including: salt, pepper, saran wrap, etc.

Finally, when these concerns were brought to the attention of the owner, there was no response.

Our group which included a child and four adults were very impressed with the location and enjoyed the beautiful walks right out the front door. As the owner of a VRBO rental myself, I value the ability to ensure our own rental is clean and ready for visitors each stay as well as we are more than willing to ensure each of our guests is fully satisfied with their stay.

Owner's Response: We are sorry your stay at Roark Mountain did not meet your expectations. As you can see from all of our previous guests reviews that is very uncommon. The loft/Master bath is very much a finished bath, if not a bit more modern than what you would expect in a cabin and fully as private as necessary. It is a "loft" bedroom/bathroom which is an open by design. Again, no one else has complained in four years of renting. As for the kitchen, its true you do need to bring your own spices, however, it is fully stocked with cookware. Cabin being dirty, purely false. As to the lack of response, we did respond to your first complaining email. Each of the additional emails demanding a refund warranted no response.
