Fairplay cabin description

Location, Location, Location:
The Fairplay Chalet is located between Fairplay and Alma in the Valley of the Sun at 11,100 feet in elevation. Off the beaten path for a true peaceful mountain experience, yet close to mountain amenities. Less than two hours from Colorado Springs and Denver, it's only 23 miles to Breckenridge, and 35 miles to Buena Vista. Added bonus: the cabin location is easily accessed via Hwy 285, avoiding travel on the overcrowded I-70 mountain route.

Breckenridge ski resort is 25 miles away. Eight other ski resorts ranging from world class to small family friendly resorts are within a 45 minute-1.5 hour drive. (Beaver Creek, Vail, Loveland, Keystone, Copper Mountain, A-Basin, Monarch and Ski Cooper)

Hiking/Snowshoeing/Four-Wheeling/Snowmobiling/Cross Country Skiing/Biking/Fishing/Rafting/Kayaking: are just some of the other alpine activities within 5-35 miles away.

About the Owners of The Fairplay Chalet:: The Fairplay Chalet is a dream come true for two professionals who longed for a peaceful and relaxing weekend getaway close to great ski resorts, hiking and fishing yet within easy driving distance from the Denver Metro area. After searching hundreds of properties in Summit and Park Counties, the owners purchased land in South Park and set out to build their dream cabin in the mountains, which they finished themselves in 2008.

The fruits of this laborious effort - an aesthetically appealing mountain retreat that is too good not to share with others. The large deck is great for sipping morning coffee and bird watching. In the evening, relax by one of two fireplaces with a cup of hot cocoa. Read a book in the Loft Library. Play foosball, shuffleboard, darts or watch a movie. After relaxing in the cabin, step outside to enjoy numerous activities in winter and summer from snowshoeing and sledding out the back door to hiking 14ers and fishing gold medal waters just minutes away.

Colorado Towns Surrounding The Fairplay Chalet:: Fairplay:
Quaint town with several summer festivals, the Fairplay Fitness Center, South Park City Museum, bowling alley, grocery store, mountain shops and casual dining.

Funky offbeat mountain town featuring music festivals, shops and a couple of bars/restaurants.

Buena Vista:
Art galleries, restaurants, shops, hiking, fishing, hot springs, rafting, kayaking, hot springs.

Summit County:
The towns of Breckenridge, Frisco, Dillon, Silverthorne and Keystone are all within a 30-55 minute drive offering fine dining, mountain shops, and all of the above mentioned outdoor activities.

Advantages of Staying at The Fairplay Chalet:: Avoid the congested I-70 corridor by traveling Hwy 285;

Drive a little (to ski resorts) and save a lot: unmatched value compared to Summit County properties;

Experience the Colorado mountains and serenity as it's meant to be enjoyed away from the hustle and bustle of a ski resort town;
