Overview

Fairplay Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Fairplay, Colorado

Established in 1880, the historic DM cattle ranch encompasses 650 acres of private meadows and forest for fly-fishing, hunting (in season), horseback riding, nature walks, or just relaxing. Observant visitors may spot deer, elk, beaver, hawks, eagles, heron, bobcat, martin, or even moose while exploring this large property. It's not unusual for accomplished anglers to catch and release 30 brown trout per day on the ranch during summer.

The cabin has a loft with one king and 2 twin beds. They are dressed in luxurious Ralph Lauren linens to appeal to the most discerning guests. The living room houses a massive sofa pit that sleeps 2 very comfortably. If you'd like to bring an RV and spread out further, there are complete facilities for those. Feel at home in the full kitchen equipped with most of what you need to prepare your favorite home-cooked meals.

On this private, 615 acre property that also includes a 100 year old homestead "main house", you will find this newly and beautifully restored log cabin that sleeps 4 with full RV hookups, corrals for your horses, direct access to the Pike National Forest and plenty of space to recreate as you wish! There are 2.5 miles of the South Fork of the South Platte River and .5 miles of Twelvemile Creek with private world-class fly fishing available for an additional fee through the owner's partnership with South Park Trout. Reservations can be made through their website (no more than 4 people) for the ultimate fly fishing experience with a professional guide. Feel free to check out their website where the DM Ranch and it's superior fishing is featured.

The DM Ranch is on the Weston Pass Road in Park County. It is 13 miles from the town of Fairplay and just 36 miles from Breckenridge, one of Colorado's premier ski towns. The Pike National Forest is across the road and provides an unending trail system for hiking and ATVing as well as spectacular displays of fall colors viewed from the comfort of the new cabin deck. The towns of Salida and Buena Vista are a short drive. If it’s downhill skiing, hunting, eclectic dining or unique shopping you are seeking, you are a short scenic jaunt from it all.

The DM ranch is not just a property, it is a truly remarkable experience. It is best suited for families and small groups seeking quiet, secluded experiences in an authentic ranch setting. Get away from the rat race and come enjoy the sound of the river, the smell of the wilderness and the wonder of the spectacular mountains. It is all yours and completely private.

Fabulous Mountain Get-a-way!!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for such a fabulous mountain get-a-way! Your beautifully restored log cabin is set in the middle of one of the most beautiful places in the Rocky Mountains! My husband and I spent several days in this quiet and peaceful hide-a-way and it was very hard to leave. We enjoyed Beautiful sunsets and sunrises. We have never seen such an incredible canopy of stars at night displaying God's creation; and the sounds of the elk bugling was amazing. We rode our bikes down the county roads and enjoyed the gorgeous fall colors, we hiked on the Ranch property, fly fished and had such fun horseback riding on the ranch property going through the south platte river and up and down mountains. Info on the horseback riding is in the cabin. The cabin is so well appointed with a super comfy bed in the loft with windows all around you. When you wake up you see the sunrise and deer on the property. The kitchen has everything that is needed and we enjoyed barbecuing. The family room is so comfy also with the huge sectional couch and we had a fire going every night. Of course it's always nice to have the convenience of wifi and cable. Even washing dishes was fun because of the incredible view out of the window above the sink. The town of Fairplay was close enough that we could go and explore the history of the area and eat out a couple of times and enjoy ice cream treats. We even went over the pass to Breckenridge to ride the beautiful bike trail from Breckenridge to Frisco. There are also great hikes just down the county road in Pike National Forest. In FairPlay there is a Forest Service station with great info on hikes and the area. The Java Moose is a must for a great latte or sandwich. We also had a great meal at the steakhouse in town. Next to the steakhouse is a yummy ice cream shop. Definitely take an afternoon to see South Park, a restored town from the 1800s with original buildings and artifacts. The owners of the cabin and ranch were so helpful before we arrived answering any questions we might have and even answered a couple of questions for us when we were there. We so appreciated their kindness. The ranch where the cabin is located also has such an interesting history. We came home rested and refreshed!! Don't miss out on this opportunity to experience such a beautiful, relaxing, unique and fun get-a-way!

Fabulous!!!

  • 5 of 5
We were looking to "get away" and get away, we did. The drive from Denver through the mountains was just gorgeous! Once we began heading into Fairplay, there were horses (and cattle and "critters") everywhere we looked, which we just loved. Driving down the road towards the DM Ranch was beautiful. When we reached the cabin, we knew we had picked the perfect place to stay. From the view (wow, the view), to the décor, to the linens... the Buyers did not miss a beat. We had several questions prior to arriving and Mary Ann gave us great information/recommendations and then some. Easy access to hiking, riding and fishing...oh, and relaxing!! And the town of Breckenridge is just a 40-ish minute drive away and well worth it. Once again, going through the mountains was spectacular. If you want to unplug and unwind, relax and regroup, this is a must-stay. We were quite sad to close the gate one last time on our last day, but hope to return next year. Thanks!

Hi Mary Ann, just wanted you to know that we enjoyed our stay at the ranch. Found a horseshoe & added it to the rack. Caught some fish and saw a black footed ferret. Really enjoyed the peace & quiet. Also the sunsets . . .
Attached are a few photos from our stay. We're already looking for dates to come back in the fall!

My son and I spent a couple of days at the DM Ranch. We had a great time--very secluded, very beautiful. We did some hiking, horse back riding, and in general, just appreciating the beauty of the place. House was great--modern, nice, all amenities. Thanks again!

wonderful ranch

  • 5 of 5
Great get away. A must for those seeking remote area. With in driving distance to do numerous activities. Splendid for hikers, fishermen/women, horseback riders, skiers, or those looking to get away from it all. Fishing was outstanding. Wildlife right outside the door. Plants were beautiful, weather perfect. Have every intention of going back.

Wonderful week at the DM Ranch

  • 5 of 5
 
My wife and I, along with another couple whom we have known for many years, spent a very leisurely and relaxing week at the main ranch house on the DM Ranch the first week in October, 2011.  Our stay was very enjoyable and was a great retreat from life in suburbia and being only about a two hour drive from home was a real bonus.  The colors were beautiful and the view from the picture window facing west was truly a picture right out of the old west.  We took a look through the cabin, about a half mile west of the main house, which has been fully renovated and the view from there was even better!  So good in fact that we chased the view over Westin Pass into Leadville for lunch and took a scenic drive back through Buena Vista.  Spending a week away from the city and away from the usual tourist destinations turned out to be a real vacation.  We would highly recommend the DM Ranch to anyone who loves the outdoors or just likes to stay inside and enjoy the outdoors from the warmth of a comfortable couch next to the wood burning stove.  We had a great time and were not ready to leave at the end of the week. We will definitely be making a return visit.
