**See our IrishRoseColorado website link below***

Please see the same 'Irish Rose' listing under Breckeridge--it has additional photos! Listing number is 13578.

Completed in May 2002, this mountain cabin is located on the historic Mosquito Gulch Trail. Just 15 miles south of Breckenridge, it is the perfect spot for either a secluded get-away or a ski vacation at a fraction of the cost.

Centered on ten acres of pine and aspen, the Irish Rose was designed to accommodate those who want a true Colorado experience. With Mosquito Creek flowing nearby, you will enjoy spectacular views of Pennsylvania and London Mountains as you relax with family and friends. A seven person hot tub sits out front in the location of an old historic mine if you want to relax and enjoy the view from there!

If summer hiking, biking or four-wheeling is your desire, four of Colorado's 14,000 foot peaks are at your doorstep, providing some of the best hiking and driving trails in the world. Tackle the summits of Mount Bross, Mount Democrat, Mount Cameron, and Mount Lincoln... all in a single day!

Gold pan on the local creeks, explore 'Buckskin Joe' trail, and visit the ghost town of Park City. The historic mining towns of Alma and Fairplay are also nearby. Mountain bike to your heart's content or drive the legendary 4x4 'Mosquito Pass' into Leadville. Pick wildflowers and view wildlife--there's something for everyone!

If winter activities are your goal, the beautiful village of Breckenridge is just a short drive north where you can enjoy premier Colorado skiing, dining, and shopping. Keystone, Arapahoe Basin, and Copper Mountain are also close. Or, stay near home and cross-country ski to your heart's content. We have it all!

The Irish Rose was built with families in mind. The main level has a great room with a gas fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing the beautiful mountains and trees. It is surrounded by a huge 32 by eight foot wrap-around deck. A full kitchen and dining area are also on this level to create an open, spacious environment. Pets are NOT allowed, No Smoking.

There are two main level bedrooms, one with a queen bed, and one with bunk beds geared for up to four kids. The great room sofa also pulls out to a queen-size bed. The master bedroom loft has a queen bed, washer and dryer, along with a small private balcony. There are full baths on both the main level and the loft. The cabin also has a lower level with a private entrance in the back which is occupied by 'Mountain Kay', the landlord. Kay has 30+ years of experience in Park and Summit Counties. She is quiet, very knowledgeable on the local area, and can assist with anything you need. She has two old dogs who will go hiking with you if you like!

Experience the Rocky Mountains in the comfort of the 'Irish Rose.' At over 10,000 foot elevation, it's as close to heaven as you can get!

We are a military family who built this home in 2002 and are blessed that we can share it with others!

Rich purchased this cabin in 2002

We have long ties to this part of Colorado. The Irish Rose feels wild and secluded but is close to Alma and Faiplay, and a short drive to the mountain ski town of Breckenridge.

The Irish Rose has 10 acres of total seclusion with pine, aspen, a river, and amazing views. Many houses on the internet may look similar, but very few properties give you the total Colorado experience. Look at our guestbook and see that it will be a unique and memorable experience!

The Irish Rose Vacation 2013

Our stay at the "Irish Rose" was nothing less than spectacular. The Cabin was well maintained and beautiful, and well equiped with anything you needed. The land that it is on was fun for exploring and hiking or just relaxing by the creek.
The area is centrally located for touring the Royal Gorge, Pikes Peak and Brekenridge, along with other scenic sites.
The people of Alma and Fairplay were friendly and respectful and helpful when looking for directions or information. Our Family would gladly stay at the "Irish Rose" again and again whenever possible.
Thank You for a wonderful place for a wonderful and relaxing vacation.
Buddy and Sharmon and family

Honeymoon Getaway

My heavens, where to begin?! We married on a Saturday and flew out Monday morning from Louisiana to see beautiful Colorado...never imagined to be in such a beautiful cabin, such as The Irish Rose, in Alma! Ms. Kay greeted us at the door with a smile and gave some AMAZING advice on purchasing ski clothes and where to actually enjoy some action on the slopes. We spent one day in Breckenridge skiing and boarding, but it was that night, back at the cabin, in the hot tub that was ah-mazing - soaking (as we were not prepared for just how much of a workout "playing in the snow" would be, looking up into the clear night ski and seeing nothing but stars...one.with.nature. The last night of our stay was interesting...snow storm that blew in 6-9 inches of snow. We, being from LA, had no idea how to handle and had a minor freak-out moment, but we called down to Ms. Kay asking for advice and she calmed us down. That next morning, at 6am, we began to load up the car (had a flight out of Denver at noon) and there was Ms. Kay...she had already scraped the ice off our car, shoveled a path for us to walk TO the car, as well as made a path to the road. MS. KAY IS BEYOND AMAZING! We made it to the airport with a couple hours to spare (usually takes 2 hrs max)...never would have made it at all without the help of Ms. Kay...seriously cannot thank her enough! Upon our arrival back in Louisiana, we have spread the word about this gorgeous cabin (which literally has EVERYTHING you need with the exception of food and beverage). We will most certainly come back to visit Ms. Kay and relax in the beautiful scenic area surrounding The Irish Rose!! **memories made**

Great Winter Get away

We vacationed here at the Irish Rose for a quick weekend get away. It was a lovely place to stay. Plenty of room and it was very nicely maintained. The property was large and we were able to do snowshoeing on the property. The views are great, the snow was nice and deep. We had all the comforts of home. I can't wait to come back for a visit in the summer!

Quiet and Comfortable!

My family stayed at the Irish Rose over Spring Break and had a wonderful experience. There were 6 of us and the accommodations were comfortable for that size group. The home was clean, stocked, and easy to find. We enjoyed the secluded setting and watched several foxes each evening out the back door. It was a bit further to Breck than we anticipated (30 minute drive), but it allowed us to talk about our day and unwind after a long day on the slopes. Thanks to the homeowners and Ms. Kay for new family memories.

Peaceful and Beautiful

My wife and I brought our one year-old to the Irish Rose as a staging point for a wedding in Breck. We had looked into other rentals but Rich was the only owner to get back to me in a timely manner and was able to provide us with answers to every question we could think of!

The only regret we have is that we didn't stay for one more day. The cabin is beautiful, view from the living room (or any room for the matter) absolutely stunning, everything was very clean, heating was great, and QUIET!

Kay met us as we arrived and was genuinely one of the nicest people I've met and it was comforting to know that should an emergency arise, she would be just a knock away. The cabin was very child friendly for our one year-old.

We rented an all wheel drive vehicle in Denver for the trip. Once at the Irish Rose, we had absolutely no issues taking daily trips to Breck and back multiple times, in heavy snow conditions.

I believe the Irish Rose's quality is a reflection of its owners, and cannot think of a better place to stay in the Breck area. We hope to stay again in the future!
