Overview

Fairplay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + 2 Baths

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 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 game table where they can play Air Hockey, Ping Pong, or Pool.

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 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.

About Ron Garner

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

Why Ron Garner chose Fairplay

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this home for two weeks. We found the home beautifully decorated, spacious, well equipped and stocked kitchen, along with lots of amenities such as hot tub, sauna, and gas fireplace. We found it to be very clean. Wi-fi was great along with good cell service. The house is located in a beautiful community and is within minutes for access to many beautiful national forest trails. Wildlife is abundant in the area. We did hike in the area as well as did lots of day trips to surrounding towns. Fairplay is a nice small town with several restaurants and a good grocery store. In Fairplay, I would recommend touring the South Park City Museum. It is very well done and maintained.

I will recommend this VRBO to others.

Wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Accomodations were outstanding....something for everyone. It was a pure pleasure to relax in the sauna or hot tub, then enjoy the quiet and beauty of the surroundings after a long day of hiking or sightseeing.

Thanks again.

Fantastic vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this wonderful home near Fairlplay with another couple on our week-long Colorado vacation. This home was even nicer than described on the vrbo site. Large rooms, beautiful furniture - and a full stocked kitchen!!! That was awesome as this crew likes to cook, and we did, often!

It's perfectly located to be a base for sightseeting excursions - from Breckenridge north to Salida south. Very private within the Warm Springs area - and we got to fish in the trout-stocked ponds!!! That was great!

The property owner was great to work with - wonderfully accommodating! I have lots of friends who like to visit Colorado and will definitely recommend this property. And, I hope to rent it again next year!

Fabulous getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house is an amazing place to stay. Our week there was so enjoyable, and the accommodations were more than comfortable - they felt luxurious. It's a fabulous home - the log architecture was so beautiful, the kitchen was well-stocked with almost anything you'd need to cook with, the view from the deck was outstanding, and Warm Springs Ranch, where the home was located, is a wonderful development with a variety of scenery in and of itself. A short walk takes you down into the meadow below and the National Forest trail along the edge of the meadow. A short walk the other direction takes you to the edge of an aspen forest.

The home itself provided many amenities. If you want to watch TV or movies, the flat screen TV was great. There are a variety of games and books and a Wii in the loft, and of course the hot tub and sauna, which we didn't even use. If you want to sit quietly and read, you can do it on the deck with a beautiful mountain view, weather permitting, or you can sit in the very comfortable leather chair or couch in the main level living room. Again, weather permitting, you can have meals on the deck with a view like few others. We had breakfast out there a few days, and a lunch and a dinner there.

The house was very clean and well-maintained, and our (all email) interactions with the owner were quick and helpful. We love this area, as you are a short (hour or so) drive from a variety of towns and scenery, a very short (10-15 minutes) drive into Fairplay to eat or shop, but if you never drove anywhere, you'd still have a wonderful stay at this house and in the area surrounding it within walking distance.

All in all, the pictures don't do it justice, the description in this listing is very accurate, and you can't go wrong staying here.

Better than I could've imagined!

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely amazing! Not only was it beautiful inside and out, it was stocked with everything imaginable! Centrally located from everything we wanted to do and see. Close enough to amenities but still secluded enough to get away from it all. Communication from owner prior to our trip was perfect also. Can not say enough!
