Guestbook comments from the owner
I just want to let you know that everything was great. We really enjoyed our stay at your home, and we really appreciated all the Christmas decorations. It's a wonderful place you have, and we found everything we needed while there. You've done a really great job of keeping the kitchen stocked with all the pots and pans and other gadgets that anyone might need.





Thank you again for opening your home to us, and I hope you had a great Holiday.

My husband Rim and I grew up in South FL, but have always loved to travel. We have found nothing in the US to compare with the Rocky Mountains for scenery, climate and wildlife. Now we are living in Palm Beach Gardens, FL with our Pembroke Welsh Corgi Megan and our rescue cat Oliver Rhys. Rim and I have built a retreat for ourselves in the mountains, but can only visit several weeks a year. We love to share the peace and beauty we have found there with others.

Betsy Bishop purchased this cabin in 2005

We stumbled on this area while driving to Breckenridge for our 20th wedding anniversary. South Park is a high elevation bowl surrounded by mountain ranges. There are many scenic drives and mountain passes for the adventurous to explore. We were attracted to the beauty of the area and abundant wildlife. My husband and I prefer the small town atmosphere of Fairplay to the more heavily populated and trendy ski areas.

Watch the sun rise over Pike's Peak, or sit on the deck to watch for deer, elk, moose, birds and our squirrel, Paulie Walnuts. The Pike National Forest is on the back border of the lot and there is open meadow across the road that is owned in partnership with the Nature Concervancy, where elk, moose, and deer are often seen at dusk and dawn. Cabins on either side of our lot are barely visible even in winter due to the thick grove of mature aspen trees, which turn golden in the fall. The house has all the modern conveniences, yet is cozy and secluded. Snuggle in for a good night's sleep under thick, down comforters. Our water is better than any bottled variety, is cold from the faucet, and is tested regularly to comply with Colorado state laws (as any public water supply).

EVERYTHING WE HOPED FOR!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the cabin over spring break and we absolutely loved it! Beautiful views off the back deck and such a beautiful setting. Each evening we were visited by moose coming out of the aspen grove. Perfectly located for skiing and for taking scenic drives. When we arrived the cabin was clean and welcoming after a long drive. We had hoped for a nice mountain cottage and what we got was so much more! Betsy was so helpful throughout everything! She answered any questions I had promptly and thoroughly! We will definitely be back!

PERFECT MOUNTAIN CHALET

  • 5 of 5
We scheduled this visit for a Mother/Daughter weekend, and this cabin exceeded all expectations! Wonderful setting in the forest but excellent road access (which was an issue as the first day's weather was very snowy!), and expansive views from every window. Perfectly equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and lots of bathroom space. The movie and book selection is fantastic. The quiet and grandeur is both soothing and uplifting, and we plan to come back.

GREAT CABIN!

  • 5 of 5
We’ve been coming to Fairplay during the summer for the last 14 years. We’ve stayed in lots of different cabins over the years and Betsy and Rim’s is definitely our favorite. We discovered it a few years ago and we now return to it each summer. I hike every day and with an easy bushwack through the woods (or a short walk down the road), there is easy access to hiking trails. The Warm Spring trails connect to trails in the National Forest, so whether I want a 30 minute hike or a 3 hour hike, the cabin provides the option for both. My husband mountain bikes and fishes and the cabin is well located for these activities as well. The cabin itself is beautifully maintained and appointed—comfortable beds, quality linens, everything you’d need in the kitchen, and an amazing deck for relaxing and taking in the view during the day or enjoying the star-filled sky at night. We’ve also been fortunate to see lots of wildlife. During our stay we always see pronghorns in the meadow on the road to the cabin and typically startle an elk or two (or they startle us) in the forest. During our last visit we were routinely visited by a mother deer and her fawn (spots and all). We couldn’t ask for a better place in to stay in Colorado. I highly recommend it. You couldn’t possibly be disappointed with a stay here.

A GREAT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
We have been going to this cabin for several years. The scenery and accommodations are unparalleled—we love to watch the elk in the meadow. The cabin is first rate: 3 bedrooms that are quiet with privacy; ; nice bathrooms and a good size kitchen with modern appliances. The owners are fair—affording us flexibility when are plans have changed or been altered.

This cabin is our “get-away”—a sanctuary from our hectic, busy lives….

Outstanding place. Clean and well maintained. Just the place for a quiet relaxing vacation. The scenery is fantastic, and the national forest is almost at the door.

JUST PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
Rim and Betsy do everything on their end to make it an enjoyable stay. The cabin is set up nicely--master bedroom on the main level with the other two bedrooms on the basement level. The cabin is well decorated and has a private feel to it with the aspen trees all around. I do believe that the owners thought of everything as we wanted for nothing. It was so beautiful and peaceful. Thanks for a break from the rat race!! It was just perfect!! The added bonus was the fishing pond--that was nice for our college-aged son and my husband. Good family time for them while the girls enjoyed a movie and margaritas. Nice collection of movies and books that we enjoyed besides visiting RMNP, white water rafting, and mountain biking from Vail Pass to Breckenridge. Just a nice, nice stay. Would highly recommend to anyone! Also, the other members of the group vetoed our little dog's stay with us at this cabin (with my vote being her only one!) so she stayed behind. Betsy returned the pet fee to us--which was very kind indeed. Absolutely only glowing thoughts about this vacation rental. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
