About Jeff Skogen

Hi there! Jeff and Mary Jo here, we lived in Colorado from 1999 - 2012. Due to job change, we have moved to Minnesota. We bought the mountain place as second home in 2007 - new, so we are first/only owners. We added the walk in level bed/bath/living in 2009. Married, no kids, one spoiled dog named Ginger (Boston Terrier). We have had so many great times up at the mountain home - we hope you do to. If you have any questions/concerns, please call me directly . We do not use an agency - it's just us.

Jeff Skogen purchased this house in 2007

Why Jeff Skogen chose South Central Colorado

We searched for a mountain get away for many years. We landed on this property and the Fairplay area because it was within 2 hours from Denver, a true get away (you are in the mountains, not in a city in the mountains), yet easy access to small town charm of Fairplay and a short drive to Breckenridge. It's simply a beautiful area with Silver Heels Mountain Range, South Platte River, open ranges to thick forests.

What makes this house unique

Bright, light open concept with beautiful log accents. Comfortable. Awesome views of mountains and forest from being on the ridge line.

Great location for family getaway

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing house, we had a great time fishing, ATV tours and relaxing in the house. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could need (spices galore) and enough movies, puzzles, and cards to keep our kids entertained. Would highly recommend this place!

This cabin was wonderful. The views are gorgeous and the home is lovely!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is close to town, yet secluded. There is a huge living room with comfy couches, a large kitchen, two fire places, and plenty of room to sleep a large group comfortably. We had no complaints and hope to visit again for another family reunion. We hiked in the area, visited some art galleries in Fairplay, went to a brewery in Buena vista, shopped in Breck. It was the perfect long weekend. And again, the views are gorgeous from this cabin!! Lots of aspens changing if you come in the fall. Jeff, the owner, was in great communication with anything we needed and any questions.

Beautiful view, spacious and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Fairplay for the summer for the last 17 years. During that time we've rented 12 different places for periods of 3 weeks to 3 months. This is definitely one of the best--and may be our favorite. The view is beautiful and it's such a bonus to wake up in the morning and see the mountains in the distance. The house is open and spacious and very comfortable. It backs to National Forest and we often saw deer there on our evening walks. Jeff is very responsive. We had a little problem with the Internet and Jeff got it fixed within minutes of us contacting him. This is our final rental because we're building a house in the area. But, if we weren't building, we'd be trying to book next year for the entire summer!

Owner's Response: Hi Maureen! Wow - Thank you for the great review and kind words. So glad you and yours loved the place as much as we do. The views and extra 80+ acres of the Forrest Land is so nice. Welcome to Fairplay! Maybe we can meet each other some time. Thanks again! Jeff

Such a beautiful view every morning!! We loved the house and were sad to leave even after a month.

The house was clean and inviting. We felt right at home immediately. So glad we chose this house. We had a great view of the fireworks too, so we just were on our own back deck instead of having to fight the town traffic. We will be back!!!

This property is beautiful and has equally beautiful views! Everything was perfect! The owners have thought of everything you could possibly need, and were great about answering questions about things to do while we were there. Cannot say enough good things about our stay!

Truely Awesome get away!

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect get away to celebrate father's day with my family. The cabin itself was beautiful, clean, comfortable and well-made. The location of the home was conveniently close to town, but felt like you were far away from everything. My 2 year old loved exploring the forest area around the cabin, looking for rocks and pinecones. We were able to take the Fairplay Museum tour ( which I would recommend if you have time) and enjoyed learning about the towns history.

Jeff couldn't have been easier to work with and responded, almost immediately, to all my questions. He was courteous and professional. We plan on doing the trip again next year because it was so wonderful for all ages. Thanks again for letting us share this beautiful home and property.

Owner's Response: Joy and Family! Thank you so much for the excellent review. I love it how you tell about the little things like pine cones with the little ones, and how that will be a memory forever. Yes, the old South Park Walking Museum is a must see - we enjoy seeing that every year. So glad to hear that you loved the place as much as we do! You and yours are welcomed back anytime! All the best to you and yours. Thanks again, Jeff
