The Cozy Burro is owned by a Colorado family. We were looking for a mountain get-away to be able to host small groups and build family legacies. Our family spends countless hours of fun and quality time with friends and family here doing just that…building memories and relationships that will last forever.
Richard purchased this House in 2005
Why Richard chose Fairplay
After looking at hundreds of properties in both Summit Park County areas, we ran across this unique setting and fell in love. South Park is in the center of it all, has easy access, a more moderate climate than ski towns (even though it’s higher), and is less crowded. Fairplay is a quaint town with all the amenities need for a getaway, while keeping the rustic mountain town feel. The surrounding mountain views are breathtaking, and the area truly feels like this is what Colorado was meant to be.
What makes this House unique
The Cozy Burro is unique for several reasons. The property and land is very usable, and has hours of hiking right on the property. The location is secluded, yet very close to town and amenities. It’s an easy jaunt to skiing, fishing, four wheeling, forest trails, hot springs, and much more. The property is easily accessible year round, and has plowing guaranteed. The home is updated, well laid out and comfortable. What we (and guests) enjoy most about the property is the comfort and design of the home, the spaciousness of the usable land, the ease of access to everything, volleyball court, hiking, and of course the award winning two 18-hole “Extreme Mountain Croquet Golf Courses” on the land. In the winter it turns into a wonderland for cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and warming up by the fire after a great day of downhill at Breckenridge (without the high costs).

This is a great place for anyone wanting a Rocky Mountain Vacation.
This place is close to just about everything colorado has to offer. The property is also very large because its adjacent to BLM (open space) land. The only noise was the music we played from the wired outdoors surround sound. You could also hear the music while playing mountain golf. If you want to see animals, They are here. some actually on the property. Elk herds a few mile down the road. Mountain Vista's from this property every direction. It snowed very hard a few days during our trip, even with 8 to 12 inches on the pass between Breck & Fairplay we easily crossed the pass with no problem. The snowplows did a amazing job keeping it open. A 4wd will make things worry free. The property is very easy to get to & parking plentiful. Nice circle driveway & maintained flat roads in & out of the property. We went to Denver via 285 to the Av's game. It was a 1 hour drive. I believe any summit county ski resort is within less than a hour drive & loveland about a hour. (Taking your time).
The market in fairplay closes early but summit county grocery stores are open later.
The house was a very comfy tri level. The fireplace was awesome & will dry gloves & boots well. We kept our gear & shoes in the Sun room, Its perfect for the buffer between outside & the house. The hot tub is close to the Sun room for that short freezing run between the house & hot tub. A 104' degree hot tub made even snowy day nice & cozy. a must for a recoup day after a good crash at Breck. The media room downstairs is full of games & the couch is so large 3 people layed down & watched movies on a fully surround sound system. It was awesome. The Bar has a fridge & sink. WiFi never missed a beat, better than what I have at home. Kitchen has everything you need, double oven, GAS stove was great. Cleanup was easy. Plenty of trash storage.
Property manager was very fast returning calls & very nice. We arrived at 10pm on the first night. Guide booklets & coupons were awesome. We could have stayed at Breck in a much smaller place for the same money. This was defiantly a better option & everyone had comfy space. fairplay has all the stores you need for supplies & just a mile down the road. Even a ski shop for tune ups & repairs.
For the curious ones, They do have a dispensary in fairplay & Alma. Although, no smoking on the property. You can "Rec before you Breck".
Absolutely an amazing property rental! Best location possible, huge cozy home with amazing views! Easy & friendly booking! We came to ski & visit some nearby locations. We will hopefully be back in the future!
Great spacious mountain home, close to skiing.
We had the best time here. We had family in Colorado from out-of-state and they went skiing at Breckenridge. It was just a 30 minute drive for them. The house was clean and very spacious for our group. We cooked and had everything we needed. The setup on the main floor was perfect for playing games and eating together as one group. The hot tub was very enjoyable too! We would definitely stay here again.
Perfect Mountain Getaway
We loved EVERYTHING about our recent stay at the Cozy Burro Home. Centrally located to everything we wanted to do! The home was private, yet close to town! Very clean, comfortable, lots of room with a wonderful layout, everything you need. We cooked every meal for a week and the kitchen was amazing! The outdoor games were so much fun and when it rained the indoor games provided kept the fun going! Just a wonderful, wonderful experience! Lots of memories for our family! I highly recommend the Cozy Burro - Book it before its too late! Thank you!
excellent property with hospitable accommodations
This is a great property and we enjoyed our stay very much. We did go to Breckenridge both days we were in the mountains and coming back to this house was very easy, convenient and relaxing. Our teenage boys enjoyed the hot tub and even played a round of mountain golf. Our dogs enjoyed the outdoors. Also, the market is very close and convenient and had everything we needed. Thanks for a great quick trip.
Great accommodations at the Cozy Burro
This is the third summer that our Board has chosen to use the Cozy Burro for our annual retreat. We work in the mornings, take walks and enjoy the surrounding area parts of the day, and enjoy watching a film together in the evenings. There are eight of us, and the Cozy Burro is the perfect size for us. It is quiet, but it is close to the restaurants in town, since we like to have one evening free from cooking. Each year, we all agree that it will be the Cozy Burro for us again next year!
C.G. Jung Institute of Colorado
If you picture a Gold Rush miner as a grizzled old guy leading a burro, you might still see that today in Fairplay! Especially during its annual Burro Days races and celebration. There's also Mountain Man Rendezvous each July, where you can watch re-enactments of Colorado's earliest days. South Park is the hidden gem of Colorado, thousands of miles of trails, National forest, mountains, and central to everything with the lowest population density. It is true Colorado.
