Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom/1 Bath With Loft On 2 Acre Property. Moose Sightings Abound!

This charming cabin is located in Valley of the Sun which is just 5 minutes from Fairplay and 25 minutes from Breckenridge in Park County. The cabin has 2 bedrooms, one bath, a family room, a dining room and a loft. It is on a wooded property overlooking the snowy mountain ranges to the West and North. The cozy living area with a wood-burning stove is open to the dining area and kitchen. The kitchen has gorgeous mountain views and lots of light. There is a large bedroom upstairs with lots of room. The separate loft has a foosball table and cozy seating. The master bedroom has a queen bed and a private balcony with amazing views. The owners have provided lots of games for entertainment or you can relax by the cozy wood stove after a day of skiing.

The home is in the center of many of the main recreation areas in Colorado. Whether you love skiing in the winter or hiking in the summer, you will be within a short drive of many great areas. Fairplay and Alma are the activity center of the Colorado Rocky Mountains and is often referred to as the Base Camp for all activities some of which include hiking, mountain climbing, horseback riding, ice climbing, fishing, hunting, rafting, 4-wheeling, ATVing, mine exploring, canoeing, kayaking, and much much more.

If you can think of an outdoor activity, you will probably find it within 10-20 minutes of the cabin. It is a great area to call your 'Base Camp'. This is a beautiful home to spend any season of the year.

You can find all of these activities within minutes of the home:

* FISHING ... Gold Medal/Blue Ribbon Fishing. 5 area lakes and public river a short drive away

* In Subdivision... Access to National Forest/Montgomery Reservoir, Lincoln Falls, Ice Climbing, and some of the best snow-shoeing and 4-wheeling in Colorado

* Breckenridge ... ski, snow-board, snowmobile, fish, boat, golf - 25 min. NW

* Buena Vista ... Hot Springs, fishing, raft the Arkansas River - 35 min. SW

* Salida ... fishing, hiking, jeep trails , rafting - 45 min SW

* Como Historic Railroad District - 20 min. NW

* Fairplay Historic Mining Town - 5 min. NW

* Denver ... shopping, theaters, sports, amusements parks -90 min NE

* Cripple Creek ... gold mining, gambling - 50 min.

* Canon City ... home of the Royal Gorge - 60 min SE

* Manitou Springs ... Cave of the Winds, Pikes Peak - 60 min. SE

You will enjoy the flexibility of being able to explore all of the exciting areas in the heart of the Rockies by being in the center of all the activities. You will be able to enjoy a luxurious home but also the seclusion and beauty that only a true mountain setting can offer.

The access is easy and 4-wheel drive/AWD is not a necessity during the summer months but is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED DURING THE WINTER MONTHS. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR VEHICLES NOT BEING ABLE TO REACH THE CABIN DUE TO SNOW. THE ROADS ARE COUNTY MAINTAINED AND NOT OUR RESPONSIBILITY. OUR DRIVEWAY IS PLOWED ANYTIME THERE IS 4 INCHES OR MORE OF SNOW DURING THE WINTER MONTHS. IF YOUR VEHICLE IS NOT CAPABLE, WE ARE NOT ABLE TO ASSIST. THE CABIN IS LOCATED AT APPROXIMATELY 11,000 FT ABOVE SEA LEVEL.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very cute and comfortable cabin, a perfect setting with great views. So much appreciated the fenced backyard so our dog could experience the freedom! The first night/morning about 4:30a we woke up to moose bugling! We looked outside the south windows and saw a huge mama moose and youth/baby next to the wood shed so close to the side/back deck! What a thrill! The next morning around 7a we saw the male moose with a huge rack! Loved your place! Thanks!

Fun little cottage with most amenities which need updating. Overall it was fine for what we needed.

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was cute and may be great for a couple. It definitely needs updating of bed sheets, towels, the skillets are worn as well as the plastic utensils ( they are the cheap kind which peel in your hot food). The main floor bedroom bed's foam top is sinking in the middle. My husband and I kept rolling into each other, had to sleep separate. The refrigerator has a motor humming on and off all day and night. If you are sensitive to noises this is annoying. The wifi is not consistently working. My lap top had to buffer constantly to watch a clip on "U Tube". However, overall, the cabin is very cute, great TV , and quaint athmosphere.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your time overall and would like to address some of the items that were brought up for future renters. Our utensils are metal spoons, forks and knives. Occasionally renters may leave behind plastic utensils, but we do provide metal eating utensils in the kitchen drawer. This is the first we have been made aware of the foam mattress topper, so we will be looking into that on our next trip to restock supplies and will replace the topper if needed. Bedding and towels are updated throughout the year as needed. When the guest called us regarding the refrigerator noise during their stay we called an appliance repair service to check it out. They told us over the phone that they would not be able to change the noise. If the refrigerator is working and keeping food cold, they wouldn't be able to do much without replacing a motor that isn't broken. We also spoke to our cleaning crew regarding the refrigerator to check it out after the guests left. We were told it hasn't changed in the way it sounds since they have been cleaning it for the past 4 years, and we have received no other complaints on this issue. We are sorry you were sensitive to noise. However, we will check that out when we make our supply run as well. The WiFi is satellite internet and is clearly stated as such in our listing. Streaming videos and multimedia expectations should be tempered when running on a satellite connection. The cabin is at 11,000 ft with no DSL or cable internet options, so your internet speeds and experience will be MUCH slower than experienced in a city. Satellite is our only option when being that remote, yet we provide this as a service for basic email and browsing, not for streaming video and multimedia. We are in constant communication with our cleaning crew to alert us when items need to be replaced. We will check on the items mentioned (and replace as necessary) to ensure we are being updated as we are unable to be at the cabin after every check-out. Thank you!

Cozy and comfortable!

We had so much fun getting away from Denver to this charming cabin. Great sunset views and felt remote, but close to town. Upstairs bedroom had blackout shades which helped our toddler sleep like a dream. We'll definitely return!

Beautiful Retreat High in the Rockies

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a wonderful few days recharging at this very charming mountain cabin. We loved the views and the comfort the offered at the cabin and really felt rejuvenated. The cabin is well appointed with comfortable beds and stocked with all that you need to prepare whatever food you might bring. We appreciated the wood burner in the main room and made great use of it each evening. The high the week we were there was only about 56 and it did frost every night...we really liked the cool weather coming from very hot Midwest. There was great hiking in the area and we did see a lot of wildlife during the week, including a moose and her calf right outside the door (surprised my wife when she was walking our puppy first thing in the AM). Also saw some mule deer grazing in the yard. The cabin is near some very good hiking, although some of it was beyond my flatlander capabilities given the altitude. We caught the aspens turning at in several nearby areas and loved the combinations of color. Drove over Boreas Pass one day as a fun something to do and it was worth the time...very cool. Recommend this place as well worth the money.
