Overview

South Central Colorado Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Fairplay, Colorado

Established in 1880, the historic DM cattle ranch encompasses 650 acres of private meadows and forest for fly-fishing, hunting (in season), horseback riding, nature walks, or just relaxing. Observant visitors may spot deer, elk, beaver, hawks, eagles, heron, bobcat, martin, or even moose while exploring this large property. It's not unusual for accomplished anglers to catch and release 30 brown trout per day on the ranch during summer.

The cabin has a loft with one king and 2 twin beds. They are dressed in luxurious Ralph Lauren linens to appeal to the most discerning guests. The living room houses a massive sofa pit that sleeps 2 very comfortably. If you'd like to bring an RV and spread out further, there are complete facilities for those. Feel at home in the full kitchen equipped with most of what you need to prepare your favorite home-cooked meals.

On this private, 615 acre property that also includes a 100 year old homestead "main house", you will find this newly and beautifully restored log cabin that sleeps 4 with full RV hookups, corrals for your horses, direct access to the Pike National Forest and plenty of space to recreate as you wish! There are 2.5 miles of the South Fork of the South Platte River and .5 miles of Twelvemile Creek with private world-class fly fishing available for an additional fee through the owner's partnership with South Park Trout. Reservations can be made through their website (no more than 4 people) for the ultimate fly fishing experience with a professional guide. Feel free to check out their website where the DM Ranch and it's superior fishing is featured.

The DM Ranch is on the Weston Pass Road in Park County. It is 13 miles from the town of Fairplay and just 36 miles from Breckenridge, one of Colorado's premier ski towns. The Pike National Forest is across the road and provides an unending trail system for hiking and ATVing as well as spectacular displays of fall colors viewed from the comfort of the new cabin deck. The towns of Salida and Buena Vista are a short drive. If it’s downhill skiing, hunting, eclectic dining or unique shopping you are seeking, you are a short scenic jaunt from it all.

The DM ranch is not just a property, it is a truly remarkable experience. It is best suited for families and small groups seeking quiet, secluded experiences in an authentic ranch setting. Get away from the rat race and come enjoy the sound of the river, the smell of the wilderness and the wonder of the spectacular mountains. It is all yours and completely private.

Cabin in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

I have never in my life seen so many stars! Serene solitude. The log cabin was beautiful! The upstairs bed was like sleeping on a cloud. The perfect place to get away from the grind of everyday living. Plenty of wildlife to see, from the elk in the morning retiring to their grassy beds, to the coyote racing across the open fields. This was our first stay in this kind of environment and we enjoyed it immensely. This cabin is one of the main reasons we are thinking of relocating to Colorado.

Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. The property is surrounded by spectacular mountain views on all sides. The cabin was well appointed, however, the pots and pans need updating or else future visitors may want to bring their own cookware. We would definitely stay again.

The Most Perfect Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Every morning when I awoke, I was presented with the most beautiful mountain views I had ever seen. The sunrises and sunsets were amazing. The beds were very comfortable and I slept with the window open every night. The cool breezes were so nice. On the colder days, I ran the fireplace. I will come back again for sure. Staying here is a genuine off-the-beaten-path Colorado experience. I enjoyed getting a break from my hectic life back home. This property was clean and relaxing.

Goodocation, nice cabin, one easy fix oversight

  • 3 of 5

The property was nice and quiet and easy to get to. It was well appointed and clean with on exception. The bed linens did not seem to be clean, they smelled of cologne and lacked a clean feeling. It's n easy fix, but it was definitely a little off-putting. Otherwise great and clean.

So Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

This was a girl's trip for me, my sister, and my mom. We went to check out properties in the area, and we wanted to stay somewhere near where we looking, but also in a place that would give us the full Colorado experience. We loved this cabin! It was perfect for our group. The renovations they did on the home have made it such a warm and inviting space, and the owners were very nice to communicate with both by phone and email. We loved sitting on the couch next to the wood burning stove, and looking at the beautiful stars at night. You feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, but it's actually pretty convenient to the town. I think it took us about 20-30 minutes to get to the grocery store. We definitely recommend this place!

So Cozy & Enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin feels like it's out in the middle of nowhere, but it's really not that far from town (maybe 20-25 minutes?). You don't see anything but mountains and land from the cabin, and it's so relaxing. The owners said that part of this cabin is the original homestead--well, they have done a wonderful job updating it. Everything was clean and nice and very comfortable. We really enjoyed sitting on the coach by the wood burning stove, and looking at the endless starts at night. We highly recommend and plan on staying there again when we next come through the area. Thanks for a wonderful weekend getaway!
