About Dan Green
We are local residents that live in Westminster, CO We are originally Midwesterners hailing from Michigan and Iowa. We now call Westminster, CO our home with our 2 children. We love spending time at this cabin when we can, but also love letting others enjoy it when we can't. We both grew up in rural areas and this place gives us that feeling of home every time we walk in the door. We truly hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
Dan Green purchased this Cabin in 2017
Why Dan Green chose Valley of the Sun
We looked over much of the state for the right place for us to have a second home. This location and layout is everything we dreamed for entertaining our friends and family. With the large kitchen, and 3 separate levels of living space, we knew we had found the perfect spot to live out our dream. There are over 8 acres to hike and wander through, but you still have neighbors down the lane so you don't feel too remote or unsafe. We knew this would be the perfect getaway for our family ski vacations and summer retreats.
What makes this Cabin unique
We searched all over the Fairplay/Breckenridge area for this perfect cabin. The large front windows give you a breathtaking view of the snow capped mountiains, including the 14'er Mt. Sherman. The cabin is nestled on 8.3 acres of beautiful pines that literally whistle in the wind. The wrap around deck and hot tub are in angled in front of the cabin to take in the beautiful views as you relax. You have plenty of room to hike around the acreage, many times you see some of the foxes from the local den. Moose have been sighted many times walking through the property.

End of summer vacation
We really enjoyed our stay at this cabin. It was exactly as posted. Nicely decorated, great hot tub, great views, and found it was the great escape that we wanted from the Texas heat! We sat in the hot tub, cooked on the grill, and relaxed by the wood stove in the evenings. Dan was able to send over some links to recommended adventures we had on our "to do" list. The horseback riding was super fun and one of the better horseback trips we have had. We even saw some elk during it. A couple of us also took a hike up Mt. Sherman.
At the cabin we mostly saw chipmunks, but did catch a red fox trotting by the house one afternoon.
My daughter had not been to Colorado yet but now she is hooked and ready to go back! I would definitely stay here again.
Beautiful home and surroundings. Had everything we needed and more, kids had a blast and will having lasting memories for years to come.
Lovely!!! Will be back.
Perfect getaway. The only “problem” was the tantrum from my three year old when we told her we had to go home.
Loved this property. Close to Breckenridge and Buena Vista yet remote. The hot tub was enjoyed by all after hiking. Altitude was a little difficult to adjust to. Would definitely choose to stay here again.
We enjoyed the great view from the deck and enjoyed our stay in the cabin. It was great that it was such a relaxed process from start to finish.
Overall, amazing house!
We stayed for a week at the cabin. Below are the pros and cons.
Great location to Brekenridge and Fairplay
Love the design of the home
Hot Tub is great!
Owner was really easy to work with and knowledgeable.
Spiders in the home. It's a cabin so you have to expect it. Lots of spider webs and spiders.
Couldn't figure out the AC, need better directions on the functionality of the thermostat.
Couldn't figure out the fire burning stove. Need better directions on the functionality of the stove, not just the manual that came with the unit.
WIFI is slow and limited. Streaming is not allowed .
We appreciate your stay and your review! Given the wet spring and recent heat wave, it has caused the area/altitude some issues with pests. Spider sightings are definitely not usual, but we have immediately contracted a pest company to ensure that we are out in front of it and minimize any spider sightings. The cabin is in the woods, so you can't control everything, but we will certainly do all we can to keep that from happening in the future.
There is no air conditioning as stated in the pre-booking details. The cabin is at a cooler & higher altitude, opening the windows allows a nice cool breeze in during the summer.
Inside the manual it does describe best how to do a fire, and how to ensure the air flow is correct. But we could try and copy those pages off so it's easier to find, thanks for the suggestion.
And yes, in this area wifi options are limited, so we can only get satellite internet which has it's limitations.
Thanks again for your stay and feedback!
