                  Hot springs, zip line, and whitewater rafting on the Arkansas River are available in Buena Vista, which is about thirty minutes to the South. Ideal area for artists and photographers. Mountain climbing is more than 15 minutes away, but there are several 14'ers only a short drive away. Skiing and snowboarding, as well as ice skating can be found in Breckenridge to the north, and Monarch, Cooper to the south. South Park City, full of 19th century buildings and antiques, is located in Fairplay. It is open during the summer months only.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: My husband Rim and I grew up in South FL, but have always loved to travel. We have found nothing in the US to compare with the Rocky Mountains for scenery, climate and wildlife. Now we are living in Palm Beach Gardens, FL with our Pembroke Welsh Corgi Megan and our rescue cat Oliver Rhys. Rim and I have built a retreat for ourselves in the mountains, but can only visit several weeks a year. We love to share the peace and beauty we have found there with others.

                  Why the Owner Chose Fairplay:
                  We stumbled on this area while driving to Breckenridge for our 20th wedding anniversary. South Park is a high elevation bowl surrounded by mountain ranges. There are many scenic drives and mountain passes for the adventurous to explore. We were attracted to the beauty of the area and abundant wildlife. My husband and I prefer the small town atmosphere of Fairplay to the more heavily populated and trendy ski areas.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  Watch the sun rise over Pike's Peak, or sit on the deck to watch for deer, elk, moose, birds and our squirrel, Paulie Walnuts. The Pike National Forest is on the back border of the lot and there is open meadow across the road that is owned in partnership with the Nature Concervancy, where elk, moose, and deer are often seen at dusk and dawn. Cabins on either side of our lot are barely visible even in winter due to the thick grove of mature aspen trees, which turn golden in the fall. The house has all the modern conveniences, yet is cozy and secluded. Snuggle in for a good night's sleep under thick, down comforters. Our water is better than any bottled variety, is cold from the faucet, and is tested regularly to comply with Colorado state laws (as any public water supply).
