4 Bedrm/3 Bath Custom Vacation Cabin Near Breck & Fairplay

Robin's Nest is a gorgeous 4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom custom vacation home located in a secluded area of Valley of the Sun. The home sits on a heavily wooded property with gorgeous mountain views. Robin's Nest is truly at the top of the mountain with views that extend for miles and miles.

If you love the outdoors, you may enjoy many activities without having to go too far...grab the snow shoes or your cross-country skiis and take a walk in the woods behind the house; hike the Pike National Forest right from the back yard; go fly-fishing in many of the lakes and streams nearby (Fairplay is known as the 'Fly-Fishing Capital of Colorado'); or access world-class ski slopes in Breckenridge just a 25 mile drive away.

On the main level of the home is the spacious great room. It has two-story windows that let in lots of light and frame the beautiful views of the mountains to the SE. It has seating for several people with two couches. The kitchen is located just off of the great room and is beautifully appointed with new appliances and lots of counter space. It has every amenity you will need for your stay. The dining area has a big table that seats 6-8 adults. It is also a great place to get together for a game of cards or to put together a jig-saw puzzle. Also on the main level are two bedrooms, both with queen beds, and a full bath.

Upstairs, there is a master loft with a queen size Select Comfort bed, a large walk-in closet, and a private bath with huge walk-in shower. There is lots of room and great views of the mountains from the two story windows.

Downstairs, the windows line the entire length of the room and provide great views of the mountains. There is outdoor access from this level, where you may step outside with the snow shoes for a walk in the woods, or come in from a long day of skiing and rest your skiis or snowboard on the rack in this room. There is a huge game room with a foosball table, puzzles and games, two couches, and a TV with DVD and Play Station. Satellite TV is provided. Also on this level is a full bath and a fourth bedroom that has two twin beds. There is a full size futon bed in the game room for additional guests.

Outside on the deck, there is a gas grill for barbecuing and a patio set where you can sit and enjoy a cup of coffee while taking in the views or watching for moose. There is a family of 5 moose that frequent the area and have been spotted by many families.

About Shelley White-Corey

Steve and I live in Texas. We have six children and six grandchildren (so far). Our kids and grand kids are spread from coast to coast, and several places in between!

Shelley White-Corey purchased this house in 2012

Why Shelley White-Corey chose Alma

Since our family is spread all over the country, we wanted a place in a serene location where we could congregate and enjoy each other's company. We chose Fairplay, Colorado for its beautiful mountains, proximity to Breckenridge and central U.S. location.

What makes this house unique

If you want to be close to skiing and numerous other activities, yet at the same time really 'get away', you will appreciate this home as we do!

This is a lovely home and very usable for a group like ours... 6 adults and 2 children. All the facilities were convenient and usable. The kitchen was well stocked with the essentials to get started and move forward. The view from the home is beautiful both day and night. We found the local people in Alma and Fairplay most warm and inviting.

Great place to get away

  • 4 of 5
Very clean, and updated house including bathrooms and appliances. Beautiful views and surroundings. Great location to get away, although we went in the winter if you are scared of driving in the snow you may want to consider that and bring a sled, and snow appropriate clothing. We loved it and had a great time! If you are looking for a place where you can disconnect from the distractions of every day this place is in the right location but has all the comforts of home. Only one TV in the family room was a welcomed amenity for our guests. The owner is very responsive to questions and the property manager called the day we arrived to make sure everything was ok. We will figure out how to get get the time to come back here again.

Owner's Response: The feeling of seclusion, while still being close to activities, was what drew us to this location. A wood-burning stove will keep you toasty-warm during the winter. Enjoy cuddling in front of 140 channels on DirecTV on one of those wintery nights! While the roads and driveway are always kept well-plowed during the snowy season, we do recommend 4-wheel drive in the winter. Our property manager is very responsive and just a phone call away if you need anything!

Perfect Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5
A group of us went stayed at Robins Nest for thanksgiving week this year. The house was perfect for us!! The kitchen was plenty spacious and equipped to cook all of our dishes. The rooms were comfortable and warm. I must say my favorite was the endless fun we had in the yard. Snowmen, sledding and the drinking coffee on the deck was so soothing! I would highly recommend Robins Nest to any of my friends and family.

Great!

  • 5 of 5
This home was great. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The owners provided very clear and easy directions and instructions. The home was supplied with everything we needed. The views from the deck were spectacular.
I rented this home for a few nights to hike in the Fairplay/Alma area. Shelley responded very quickly to my inquiry and was so thoughtful to accomodate my last minute request. Would definitely stay again.

This was a terrific cabin rental and looked even better than the pictures showed! Close to Fairplay and the Southpark Museum is a must see while you're here. I highly recommend this cabin and would definitely stay here again.
