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.

Great place to vacation!

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.

We had such a great time staying here! It was even more beautiful than the pictures! It truly was an amazing cabin stocked with EVERYTHING you could imagine! The fall colors were beautiful and the scenery was great everywhere you looked. We loved being away from all the hustle and bustle of the touristy resort towns, but still close enough to anything we needed. The cabin was VERY clean and cozy and the owners were so helpful. We couldn't recommend this place enough! We talked the whole time about wanting to come back and bring our extended families! Thanks for a wonderful experience!

This was a beautiful cabin on a beautiful piece of property!!!! It was very clean and the owners were very helpful with questions we had. I only wish we could have stayed longer!!!! Three days just were not enough to enjoy all that was in the area and still have time to just enjoy the cabin. My favorite part of our vacation was sitting on the porch watching clouds build over the mountains and grabbing a jacket and a cup of coffee as the temperature started to drop to the upper 60's on an August afternoon!!!!!
