Jefferson House Rental Photos and Description
3 bedrooms, plus loft, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps up to six people

This quintessential Colorado mountain house getaway is secluded, yet near lots of attractions. Just what you've been looking for and VERY reasonably priced, our home is located just 1 3/4 hours from Denver or Colorado Springs. Hike, bike, ski/snow board, cross country ski, fish, or sight see, and return to your cozy mountain cabin with all the comforts of home. Enjoy unprecedented peace, quiet and 180 degree views of the snow-capped Rockies, meadows, trees and rock outcroppings from the 20 foot wall of windows or loft. Look for antelope, deer, elk, golden eagles, owl and bear from the wrap around 500 square foot deck.

The home sits on two heavily wooded acres, has a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and Aspen tongue and groove ceilings. The master bedroom offers a full size king size bed, and the two other bedrooms (one on entry level with its own bath) offer queen beds. The entry level floor is fully finished and offers a third living area and game table as well as laundry room with washer/dryer. Stay connected with wireless satellite Internet, play games from the game chest, or enjoy movies on the DVD Player/36' TV. Chef's kitchen is fully equipped for cooking or baking, and there is a gas BBQ on the deck for evening cookouts. Leave refreshed, relaxed and recharged!

Come relax, recharge, and enjoy nature and the outdoors. Enjoy a multitude of attractions in the area, with just a short ride home to the peace and quiet of your exclusive and private mountain retreat. Minutes away you can hike or mountain bike the Pike National Forest at Kenosha Pass, go trekking through the Lost Park Wilderness Area or along the Colorado Trail nearby, go 4-wheeling over Mosquito Pass (the old Stagecoach route to Leadville), Georgia Pass or Boreas Pass (the old railroad route to Breckenridge), or enjoy horseback riding.

In winter, you can cross Hoosier Pass and ski at Breckenridge or Keystone, or stay on 285 and ski at the moderately priced, less used Monarch ski resort on Monarch Pass. Lots of great winter activities in Breckenridge too including an ice skating rink and hot chocolate sleigh rides in Frisco. They also have two Nordic lodges in Breckenridge and Frisco where you can cross country ski on groomed trails. Alternatively, just rent the skis in Fairplay and do it outside your door from the cabin!

We love to travel when we aren't working on real estate in the Denver area. David is a real estate agent, and Gary helps to manage our real estate development and rental business.

Gary Emig purchased this house in 2007

We enjoy getting away to the beauty, clean air and serenity of the mountains as a break from our hectic lives. Our cabin is the perfect getaway from it all, yet still affords us many activites to get outdoors to enjoy nature's beauty.

Surreal views from every window and deck - it honestly feels like you are watching a movie in 3D, even at night! When you go outside, it feels like you are in a planetarium since there is no ambient light from anywhere. The dark skies with no ambient light allow you to see across the stars and galaxies and realize what a small a place our Earth is in the whole universe!

We really couldn't ask for more ! Gary and David were exceptional in attending to every detail and making us feel comfortable. From the tips of where to explore, to the delicious brownies that greeted us, and the millions and millions of stars in the sky - it was certainly a God-send vacation. The home was cozy, clean and had absolutely everything we needed including games, DVDs and a good stock of books. It was great ! We cooked every night, and was the perfect ambience to connect and laugh as a family.

For my girls aged 5 and 8, the sleds Gary left for us to use simply made their holiday. We took them to nearby Indian Mountain, and the park in Breckenridge to sled. Centrally located, we also did drives to Buena Vista, Royal Gorge in Canon City, Denver, the Florissant Fossil Beds and ski resorts of Keystone and Dillon and still had time to get back to admire sunset at 430pm at the house. Away from it all, it was amazing to be immersed amid nature and the alpines. The drives back to the house to and from our excursions never failed to take my breath away. The vistas were simply awesome.

Thank you for the memories Gary and David ! It really wouldn't have been the same if we had opted for yet another chain hotel or resort.

Thank you so incredibly much for sharing this wonderful home with us! Being here for our honeymoon and waking up to gorgeous mountains and sunshine made it fantastic! We enjoyed every minute of our stay here and are so thrilled that we had found this home to stay in! It was so peaceful and relaxing to come home to after our busy days of rafting and exploring. Without a doubt, we'll be back again. We loved stumbling upon Fairplay's "Borro Days"! It was an added treat for our stay! Thank you again for giving us the perfect relaxing place to stay for our honeymoon! Oh, and the cookies and brownies were delicious (our favorite kinds)!

Peaceful and Sacred Zen Garden

  • Submitted: Aug 30, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
Thanks for sharing your gorgeous place. We drove from Indiana and spent a night in Golden, CO and drove up to Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park. We spent the night in Estes and then drove here. What a great place. After a couple of days of peaceful rest, we went to the Java Moose for a bit of excitement and then back here.

This is a wonderful place. The ground squirrels and gray squirrels kept us company and the birds kept us in song.

The hummingbirds are friendly and fearless. I think one of them followed us up the Indian Mountain hike.

This is like a peaceful and sacred zen garden.

We had a wonderful mini-honeymoon. The house and the views are beautiful. It seems like all we did was cook, eat and sleep, but that was exactly what we needed!

I hope your mountain home brings you many years of joy.

We had an excellent stay at this stay at this cabin! My wife was very impressed with the attention to details that the owners put into the place. It was perfect for our family.

Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend in your lovely cabin. We have decided that we will be back may times.

It was better than we even imagined. From the incredible views, quiet evenings, and gorgeous home that feels "rustic" yet refined, your personal touch left a lasting impression. Thanks for the wonderful treats and thoughtful card for our special weekend.

Great Stay over Memorial Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 28, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
Gary and David made every step of the trip easy. The owners are excellent communicators, so you'll be in good hands from the beginning to the end of the trip. They provide detailed guides of local trails, including directions on how to get to the trail head as well as commentary on the trails themselves. The home is in excellent condition and has glorious views of the surrounding mountain ranges. Even though we were there on Memorial day weekend and there was plenty of 4WD and ATV traffic in the area, the immediate location of the home was quiet - the only thing you are going to hear while relaxing on the spacious deck is the wind, the birds and the sound of your own ooh and ahhh's The kitchen is spacious and is well equipped and we made extensive use of it. The beds were surprisingly comfortable for a rental property.

All and all we had a great trip and heartily recommend this property to others.
