LUXURIOUS LOG LIFESTYLE – RELAX, REJUVENATE, AND RECREATE

Fairplay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

NEW - 46' HDTV!

We spent almost 2 years building our dream retreat, and now, you can share in that dream. Our home has everything you need for a PERFECT VACATION.

Are you looking for a relaxing atmosphere? Just picture yourself sitting in an overstuffed chair next to one of the FIREPLACES reading, enjoying a cup of coffee or glass of wine.

Do you want to rejuvenate? The indoor HOT TUB and SAUNA will make your anxieties melt away.

Do you want to reconnect with nature? The national forest is just across the street waiting for you to take a HIKE, SNOWSHOE or even CROSS COUNTRY SKI. World class FISHING is all around you.

Is skiing in you plans? We’re 25 miles from BRECKENRIDGE or if you want to enjoy the wonders of MONARCH Mountain, you can be on the lifts within an hour and not spend a fortune. Since you parked in our oversized 2-CAR GARAGE, you won’t have to scrape the snow and ice off the windows before you head to the slopes.

Are you worried the kids (of all sizes) will be bored? We have a WII GAME CONSOLE connected to the 52” big screen TV and an AIR HOCKEY table.

Maybe you want to share your experience with another family. Our home features TWO MASTER SUITES (with King sized beds) – one on the entry level and one on the main level. There is a queen-sized sofa-bed in the lower level and a twin-sized sofa-bed in the loft. If you have a little one, a Pac-n-play can be set up in either bedroom.

Are you tired of fast-food, crowded restaurants, and poor service? Our GOURMET KITCHEN has all of the amenities you’ll need to create great meals. There is even a gas grill on the main level deck. Prather’s market is less than 4 miles away.

If you do need time away from the kitchen, you are less than 15 minutes away from several restaurant choices in FAIRPLAY or the numerous choices 25 miles away in BRECKENRIDGE.

If you’ve out-grown the urge to vacation in a resort town, this is where you belong. Enjoy your vacation.

We spent almost 2 years building our dream vacation home. I started setting the logs in January of 2006, It was a labor of love and one of the most enjoyable experiences of my life. It is a unique design and a one of a kind home. The log trusses took amost 5 weeks to build and set into place. We are retired and living in Colorado Springs, CO. Our favorite activities include Skiing, Golf, Hiking and Travel. Our 2 grandchildren provide us with babysitting opportunities and they love to stay in our Fairplay home.

Ron Garner purchased this house in 2007

We used to own vacation homes in Breckenridge. However, we grew weary of the hustle and bustle. We always drove through the Fairplay area on our way to Breckenridge and noticed that we rarely had to drive in snow or ice until we got past Fairplay. So, we decided to build our new home there.

While I’ve skied Breckenridge for many years, I now enjoy driving to Monarch Mountain near Salida. During the week, the lift lines are non-existent and the snow is WONDERFUL. Add the facts that the lift tickets are about half the price of Breckenridge, there is free parking, the roads are clear (until you get within a mile of the parking lot), the food prices are reasonable, and it takes only about 10 minutes longer to get there! Monarch is a great family ski area.

Where do I start? The views are just the best. From our home, you can see several 14,000 foot peaks. In the meadow in front of our home, we see Elk, deer, and antelope. The wildlife in Breckenridge is primarily of the 2-legged variety! Warm Springs is a gated community, so security is a given. Our ranch manager keeps the roads clear and smooth year round so 4-wheel drive is not a requirement but is recommended for winter driving in the mountains. Fairplay is about 4 miles from our door and we are within 10-30 miles of almost every activity the mountains can offer. However, the greatest benefit is the peace and quiet. As a small business owner, I needed a place to kick back and relax while being close to the activities I enjoy. That is the essence of our home.

PERFECT RELAXING GETAWAY & SPECIAL FAMILY TIME TO DISCONNECT FROM REALITY!!

Perfect Relaxing Getaway & Special Family Time To Disconnect From Reality!!
  • 5 of 5
This was the most ideal property to getaway from the hustle & bustle of everyday life & spend time reconnecting with the family & nature. We enjoyed fishing, hiking, gorgeous scenery & riding our Atv's. We made a family pact to disconnect from technology & to play board games & the hot tub & sauna, made the relaxing & winding down & settling in for the evenings most perfect. The very nice kitchen enabled us to prepare our meals and eat together 3 times a day, which we never get to do in our very busy every day lives at home. There was no detail forgotten in this well appointed property & we enjoyed a wonderful vacation & the family memories created there were very special to each of us. We will definitely return to this property, sooner than later. :)

Many Thanks,

Tanya

GREAT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was incredible. The cabin is absolutely beautiful, as are the morning sunrises outside sitting on the deck. My wife spent every morning at 5:30 waiting for the sun to rise over the mountains to the east. We hiked in the national forest directly from the cabin and had the pleasure of seeing a couple of moose eating in the meadow. The drive to Buena Vista was quick and easy, and the white water rafting was incredible. We have been renting on VRBO since the website started and this is one of the best values for sure. Great location, easy access to fun and the cabin is awesome. Thank you.

GOTTA LOVE SPRING SNOW!

  • 5 of 5
This home was everything we expected--warm, inviting, all the extras we needed in the kitchen and plenty of space for our three kids to spread out and play. We were delighted to wake to a spring snow falling the morning after we arrived. It made skiing at Breckenridge amazing with 15 inches of powder! Childcare at Beaver Run was fantastic and dinner at Mi Casa was the best of the trip. Over the hill the other way in Buena Vista-it was warmer, and the views were spectacular. The food at Eddyline Restaurant/Brewery was also delicious. Got all the groceries we'd need for breakfast/lunch at Prather's Mkt. in Fairplay. Whatever we didn't have, the well-stocked kitchen in the house did. Thanks also for the high chair and baby crib--it was nice to have the touches of home without having to bring them with us. We saw antelope, elk, a BEAR! and we think a lone wolf, a long way off on the prairie. Needless to say, these CA kids were thrilled!! I'm glad you recommended a 4WD rental car--we sure needed it to get in and out of the snowy/icy driveway. It's obvious you love your home.

GREAT PLACE TO VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
This house was a great base for our day trips both north and south. It was a wonderful place to come "home" to each evening. The homeowners made sure that everything we might possibly need was there. We have rented vacation homes before and usually have to buy extra supplies during the week - i.e. dishwashing liquid, detergent, paper towels, etc. Not this time. It was all there and plenty of it. The house itself is immaculate and the bed was comfortable. We enjoyed the fireplace and the large screen TV to watch our favorite football team win while we were there. Go Saints!!! My husband and I were the only ones there, so we couldn't possibly use every part of the large house. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a "no worries" place to spend a vacation.
