My name is Brian and I am an interior trim carpenter, professional woodcarver, and artist. My wife Mary, is a school teacher. We have lived in Breckenridge for over 25 years before building our dream home in Placer Valley, where the aspens and streams meet the sky. If you are looking for knowledge on the best local trails, during your next adventure, come see us. We are both avid mountain bike/back country skier type people and I personally would love to show you the way. Please don't hesitate to call for any info.

Perfect family reunion weekend!

  • 5 of 5
This was a perfect Thanksgiving weekend with our adult children and their spouses. We were close to the ski resorts and there was a short hike to the reservoir if we wanted to be outdoors. The view from the main room was stunning. The stars at night were wonderful. It was everything they stated in their descriptions. The owners were easy to work with. I would choose this spot in a heart beat again. Thanks for sharing your lovely home!

A Great Weekend at Aspen View!

  • 4 of 5
Aspen View was a very beautiful spot to spend a weekend with our friends. Lovely house, great deck, great views, not to mention the added bonus of the soothing sounds of the babbling brook running next to the house and the great sunroom where we enjoyed our morning coffee each day. The location was good for our purposes of relaxing while enjoying the Colorado mountain surroundings. We took it easy and elected to do some auto tours rather than much hiking while we were there … and we enjoyed learning more about the mining history of the area. We downloaded from the internet the auto tour map of Buckskin Gulch, that lists details on the numbered stops along the way. We also took the auto tour partway up Mosquito Pass (too rough and narrow beyond signpost #5!). Also, on the way home we stopped at South Park City in Fairplay, and were treated to a little taste of what it may have like to live here WAY back then. It SURE did make us appreciate more the luxuries of our stay at Brian and Mary’s beautiful house above Alma!!! We will definitely be back!

Grandparents, Children and Grandchildren

  • 5 of 5
I just read the detailed review from "Grandparents and Grandchildren" so I will add only a few comments. Our family also had a wonderful time in the cabin that was prepared for a visit by "friends"- it was so well equipped and clean. We enjoyed: hiking (the wild flowers were out), fishing (by the dam the fish were not large but the kids caught many), dinner on the deck and board-games on the large kitchen table. There were several little trips into Fairplay and Breckenridge which are nearby. Brian and Mary were very helpful and accommodating. We were very happy to be their guests.

This home was beyond our expectations. We had the priviledge of staying here for 10 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. The cabin is very private and quiet but easy to find and close to the highway. You can tell it was built and has been kept with loving care. It was very clean and spacious to share with our teenage grandson and his younger sister. They each had their own room and each were able to have their own bathroom as well. They also enjoyed access to the wi-fi/ The photos that you see on the listing for this home are completely accurate.
No need to pack a lot of extras. Their was soap for the laundry, toiletries and paper goods for all the bathrooms, as well as hair dryers. The kitchen had a wide variety of spices and plenty of trash bags, paper towels and other supplies.
The living room was very comfortable for the 4 of us and would easily hold more. The balcony with table and chairs, lounge chairs and grill was used a lot by us. Our favorite room was the sunroom. What beautiful views, a good talking area while other people are watching TV in the living room. The hammock was also very popular.
We saw a lot of wildlife. Squirrels had taken up residence in the birdhouse and they were halarious to watch. Chipmunks kept busy storing our peanuts and there were birds everywhere. Also were quite a few dear and a fox greeted us one morning.
We called the owners a couple of times during our stay with questions and they were very gracious in helping us solve our problems
What can you do from this location? Everything. We had easy access to jeeping trails, rafting, zip lines,fishing and horseback riding. Breckenridge is very close. Alma and Fairplay had a lot of interesting things to offer and a well stocked grocery store.
We will definitely be visiting this property again when we are in Colorado.

Exactly what we wanted!

  • 5 of 5
This home is truly special; the sound of the brook outside the master bedroom, the custom craftsmanship, the location near many fun, family-friendly activities, and the way the house offers spectacular mountain views from every room are just a few of the reasons why. The house is clean, well-maintained, and offers all the amenities (in the kitchen, the bathrooms, and the bedrooms) that any travellers could desire. There is plenty of room to spread out, indoors and outside. We especially enjoyed the sunroom, the deck, and the hammock. The house is located near many attractions. Our favorites were rafting, mountain climing/hiking, and cycling. We would recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet getaway in a lovely setting. We are a family of three (two parents and an 8-year-old), but as the week went on, we could picture sharing the space with another family. We would definitely return for another visit in the future.

Summer vacation place

  • 5 of 5
We used this house as a base for exploring;mostly hiking and "jeeping" on the high mountain roads. We saw lots of beautiful scenery and had a great time. The house was spacious for 5 and well equipped. We enjoyed grilling dinner on the west porch with a beautiful view the Rockies. There was plenty of room to relax and read or whatever in the late afternoon and evening. Its far enough out of town, so that its quiet. But, its close to Breckenridge (~10 mi) for dinner and shopping. Enjoyed the wildlife at the house too -- hummingbirds, the young deer that showed up most mornings, and a fox one afternoon.
