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

* 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!

Quaint cabin out in the woods

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable and cosy cabin. The heat wasn't very good so it got pretty cold at night but other than that it was great and our hosts were readily available if we had any questions or needed any help

Lovely escape

  • 5 of 5

Our little family stayed here with 2 friends. It was a beautiful location and we had a great time. The only suggestion I have for other visitors is to make sure you bring any spices you'd like to use with you - even salt & pepper.

Amazing Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Amazing property. We were very pleased with the location. An easy drive from the Denver airport and once there, only 20 mins to Breckenridge. Easy to get to with beautiful scenery along the way. No review or picture could possibly give the mountain views from this cabin justice. This is the dream property my husband and I want to own one day- cozy, private and very close to perfect in every way. Communication with the owner was clear and timely. It was made clear that availability would not be an issue if we had any questions or problems (we didn't). The cabin itself is clean, comfortable and truly has everything you need. Having a washer and dryer was very convenient. Kitchen and bathrooms were stocked with basic needs. Able to cook dinner without any issues. Extra pillows and blankets were also available if needed. The little wood stove heats up the cabin quite nicely. This was our first visit to Colorado and we were very lucky to have found this property. We will definitely be back- hopefully- several times more!
