Please see the same 'Irish Rose' listing under Breckeridge--it has additional photos! Listing number is 13578.

Completed in May 2002, this mountain cabin is located on the historic Mosquito Gulch Trail. Just 15 miles south of Breckenridge, it is the perfect spot for either a secluded get-away or a ski vacation at a fraction of the cost.

Centered on ten acres of pine and aspen, the Irish Rose was designed to accommodate those who want a true Colorado experience. With Mosquito Creek flowing nearby, you will enjoy spectacular views of Pennsylvania and London Mountains as you relax with family and friends. A seven person hot tub sits out front in the location of an old historic mine if you want to relax and enjoy the view from there!

If summer hiking, biking or four-wheeling is your desire, four of Colorado's 14,000 foot peaks are at your doorstep, providing some of the best hiking and driving trails in the world. Tackle the summits of Mount Bross, Mount Democrat, Mount Cameron, and Mount Lincoln... all in a single day!

Gold pan on the local creeks, explore 'Buckskin Joe' trail, and visit the ghost town of Park City. The historic mining towns of Alma and Fairplay are also nearby. Mountain bike to your heart's content or drive the legendary 4x4 'Mosquito Pass' into Leadville. Pick wildflowers and view wildlife--there's something for everyone!

If winter activities are your goal, the beautiful village of Breckenridge is just a short drive north where you can enjoy premier Colorado skiing, dining, and shopping. Keystone, Arapahoe Basin, and Copper Mountain are also close. Or, stay near home and cross-country ski to your heart's content. We have it all!

The Irish Rose was built with families in mind. The main level has a great room with a gas fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing the beautiful mountains and trees. It is surrounded by a huge 32 by eight foot wrap-around deck. A full kitchen and dining area are also on this level to create an open, spacious environment. Pets are NOT allowed, No Smoking.

There are two main level bedrooms, one with a queen bed, and one with double bed and trundle geared for up to three kids. The great room sofa also pulls out to a queen-size bed. The master bedroom loft has a queen bed, washer and dryer, along with a small private balcony. There are full baths on both the main level and the loft. The cabin also has a lower level with a private entrance in the back which is occupied by 'Mountain Kay', the landlord. Kay has 30+ years of experience in Park and Summit Counties. She is quiet, very knowledgeable on the local area, and can assist with anything you need. She has two old dogs who will go hiking with you if you like!

Experience the Rocky Mountains in the comfort of the 'Irish Rose.' At over 10,000 foot elevation, it's as close to heaven as you can get!

About Rich

We are a military family who built this home in 2002 and are blessed that we can share it with others!

Rich purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Rich chose South Central Colorado

We have long ties to this part of Colorado. The Irish Rose feels wild and secluded but is close to Alma and Faiplay, and a short drive to the mountain ski town of Breckenridge.

What makes this cabin unique

The Irish Rose has 10 acres of total seclusion with pine, aspen, a river, and amazing views. Many houses on the internet may look similar, but very few properties give you the total Colorado experience. Look at our guestbook and see that it will be a unique and memorable experience!

The Irish Rose Vacation 2013

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the "Irish Rose" was nothing less than spectacular. The Cabin was well maintained and beautiful, and well equiped with anything you needed. The land that it is on was fun for exploring and hiking or just relaxing by the creek.

The area is centrally located for touring the Royal Gorge, Pikes Peak and Brekenridge, along with other scenic sites.

The people of Alma and Fairplay were friendly and respectful and helpful when looking for directions or information. Our Family would gladly stay at the "Irish Rose" again and again whenever possible.

Thank You for a wonderful place for a wonderful and relaxing vacation.

Buddy and Sharmon and family

Great Place for our 45th High School Reunion

  • 5 of 5

The Irish Rose is a beautiful, relaxing cabin in a beautiful setting. It would be helpful if the directions to getting to it were more specific than 3.5 miles down the road. There were several landmarks that could have been used. Even though I had 4 wheel drive, people better have good shocks because the road is pretty rugged. But the cabin itself is lovely! We so appreciated our welcome gift with the goodies :-) The cabin is very well stocked and had everything we needed. We especially appreciated the thick and fluffy towels. We were a little disappointed to hear from Kay that there were bears as it made us to fearful to take advantage of the nice Jacuzzi. We did enjoy seeing the moose, deer and fox. I am a hummingbird lover so I heard them and saw them land in trees but would have loved a feeder on the porch :-) Overall, we enjoyed our time at the Irish Rose and appreciate all the decorative touches that made it so special. Thanks for sharing!!

Exactly what we had hoped for

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay. It's not everyday that you rent a vacation home where the owners and caretaker work so hard to ensure you have a great experience. The only criticism I have is the limited cookware. :-) it's a lovely quiet home and I appreciate the lack of cell phone signal.

Charming Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed our stay in the Irish Rose. Had a little commute to the mountain to ski for the day but enjoyed coming home to this warm cozy cabin and relaxing after a long day skiing. Hot tub was perfect, kitchen fully stocked to make any home meal you'd like, and the fire place was on every night:)
