Overview

About the property

Fairplay, Colorado

The moment you arrive at this outstanding 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom vacation rental house which sleeps up to 8 guests, you’ll immediately become enchanted by the property’s stunning settings. Nearly 2 acres of aspen trees, as well as views of mountain peaks and nature’s abundance, surround the house creating a tranquil retreat to return to after an eventful day of mountain escapades, making it the perfect choice for families or close friends traveling together.

THE PROPERTY

Welcome to ‘Among the Aspens!’ This phenomenal house will serve as the ultimate base camp for your upcoming Rocky Mountain getaway. Nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac near the picturesque Pike National Forest, this wonderful property is only minutes from an abundance of outdoor recreation, ensuring a vacation filled with exciting adventures and long-lasting memories!

No matter the season, this setting offers breathtaking scenery. In the winter, the property becomes a snow paradise, while the summertime brings spectacular wildflowers and the fall paints the landscape in a striking spectrum of autumn colors. Look forward to taking in the views from the comfort of 2 hammocks situated on the land. You may even spot some hummingbirds, butterflies, and grazing deer and elk while you unwind! Plus, Foxtail Pines boasts National Forest access within the subdivision, a private stocked fishing pond with sheltered picnic table, and county-maintained roads.

Inside, the house offers enough sleeping arrangements for up to 8 guests throughout 1,846 square feet of beautifully appointed living space, making it the ideal accommodation choice for a family or group of friends traveling together. You’ll find the interior warm and inviting with vaulted ceilings, wood finishes, and a gas rock fireplace, which give the house a cozy cabin feel. In addition, the property’s southern exposure floods the open floor plan with plenty of glorious natural light.

After a thrilling day on the mountain, you and your companions will love coming home to relax in the spacious living room, where you can watch your favorite movies on the flat screen TV with DVD player, or surf the web via wireless internet for entertainment. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, refuel with a delicious meal prepared in the updated kitchen, fully equipped with stainless steel appliances. On those warm summer nights, you may prefer to barbecue on the expansive deck - fire up the charcoal grill while your companions watch the sunset behind mountain peaks. For dessert, gather around the fire pit to toast marshmallows underneath the star-filled sky. At the end of the night, the master bedroom will serve as your favorite escape, complete with a plush king-sized bed and a 5-piece ensuite bathroom with slate tile and a Jacuzzi tub. The other two bedrooms are equally pleasing and the loft outside the master features additional sleeping space.

THE LOCATION

You and your companions will quickly discover that this property is perfectly situated to experience everything Colorado has to offer! Within its borders, Park County offers 3 wilderness areas, 2 state parks, 12 state wildlife areas and more territory above 9,000 feet than any other Colorado county, creating the ultimate playground for outdoor enthusiasts! Plus, this environment supports elk, deer, bighorn sheep, antelope, beavers, raccoons, bob cats, mountain lions, black bears, and waterfowl, allowing you to enjoy plenty of incredible wildlife watching.

Explore the vast wilderness by taking jeep roads and OHV routes for a self-guided auto tour to old mining camps, ghost towns, and back country areas. You’ll love hiking through Pike National Forest, which boasts 4 fourteeners, as well as 25 other summits above 13,000 feet. In addition, Kenosha Pass is located 25 minutes away and is great for year-round hiking. You may also opt for a guided horseback ride or mountain biking along endless miles of pristine trails - Bailey, Grant, and Buena Vista mountain biking trail systems have been extended through South Park, collectively offering over 150 miles of single and two-track riding for all ability levels. The golfers in your group will love venturing 30 minutes away to Breckenridge for world-class Jack Nicklaus designed golfing!

On days when you’d prefer water based activities, spend the day 5 minutes away at Fairplay beach, where you can enjoy summer concerts and gold-panning. Tarryall Reservoir is 40 minutes from the house and a wonderful spot to go boating, and kayaking, while the Mount Princeton Hot Springs are 45 minutes away. For more adrenaline filled activity on the water, take a guided water rafting trip on the Arkansas River, which can be accessed from multiple locations. Of course, Fairplay is known as the official Trout Fishing Capital of Colorado, so the anglers in your group are sure to be delighted by prime fly fishing in over 50 miles of gold-medal trout streams. Eleven Mile and Spinney Mountain State Parks near Lake George provide facilities for fly and lure fishing, boating, sailing, camping, and hunting.

In the wintertime, experience the Rocky Mountains in a new way, when the snow brings unparalleled skiing and snowboarding opportunities. You’ll be only 25 minutes from Breckenridge, as well as 1 hour and 15 minutes from Monarch. Fairplay snowmobile trail system provides 32 miles of trails throughout Pike National Forest - plus, these trails can also serve as cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails!

Regardless of the time of year, downtown Fairplay boasts art galleries, local restaurants, a brewery, grocery and hardware stores, historical areas, and a brand new recreation center; and the house is only 5 minutes from it all! Other notable mountain towns to visit include Buena Vista and Salida, each within 45-60 minutes of the property. Whether you’re looking for a thrilling alpine adventure or simply seeking rest and rejuvenation in the great outdoors, this peaceful Fairplay vacation rental home will quickly become a place you love returning to at the end of the day!

AMAZING CABIN!

  • 5 of 5

What a spectacular cabin! Beautifully decorated, clean, and well stocked with everything from a crock pot to two different coffee makers and an espresso maker. There was even a Welcome Basket awaiting our arrival.

Several board games and books provided by the owner. Absolutely perfect weekend for our family!

The House was great and perfect a long weekend get away for 6.

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival the door handle to the deck was broken and fell right off when we tried going outside. We did our best to fix it with an extra screw we found around the house but it should probably be replaced. The main floor bathroom door also doesn’t latch shut nor does the main floor pantry. None of this was a huge deal but we wanted to report it.

Peacefull cabin

  • 4 of 5

Cabin was nicely decorated. Plenty of games to play while it snowed. Heater kept us warm and the jacuzzi tub was nice. Wished there was a decorated christmas tree but there was a little tree in dining room. Only problem we had was there was dog fur everywhere! And lots of human hair in beds on blankets and sheets. Overall it was a nice getaway for christmas.

Perfect Cabin Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was amazing for a weekend getaway! Everything was fully stocked and fairly clean. Very open and spacious. We loved going for walks around the neighborhood, the scenery is awesome! The only downside would be that the bedrooms get VERY hot at night while the living room and kitchen area stayed pretty cool and the heat settings didn’t seem to matter. Other than that, it was great! If this cabin is available in the future, we plan to make this a yearly trip.
