Welcome to Buckskin Lodge!
At an elevation of 10,578 feet, Alma, Colorado is one of the highest settlements with permanent residents in the United States. It’s only beaten out by Winter Park, which is only considered the highest incorporated town due to its annexation of its ski area. Either way, Alma certainly has no shortage of breathtaking mountain views and memorable mountain activities.
Have a real mountain adventure by staying in this huge 5-bedroom, 4-bathroom cabin. With 3 stories and floor-to-ceiling glass windows showcasing the sensational Rocky Mountain views, you’ll find that this cabin is a great starting-off point for your ultimate Colorado vacation! You’ll feel like mountain royalty warming up by the 2-story stone fireplace in the living room, and everyone will love hanging out in the huge game room on the first floor, equipped with a pool table, chess table, additional stone fireplace, and bar. Other specialty rooms include a private exercise room, a TV/media room, an upstairs study, a reading loft, and a super romantic indoor hot tub room with floor-to-ceiling glass windows on two sides. You will have gorgeous panoramic views of the scenery while having a warm bubbly soak with your travel companions. At the end of the day, relax on one of the two outdoor decks and remind yourself that you made the right decision to come here.
The spectacular views, beautiful trees, and serenity of the surroundings are absolutely unbeatable here. The nearby towns are lovely, and you’re sure to enjoy exploring them. By staying in this cabin you’ll also have super easy access to all the activities the area has to offer, including white water rafting, horseback riding, hiking, and skiing. You can be at many of Colorado’s finest ski resorts within an easy drive!

Home Away from Home
From the moment I stepped through the front door of the three story home and saw the spectacular view and the elegant, yet rustic ambiance, I felt at home. The bronze sculptures reminiscent of the wild west and the two story living room with river rock fireplace and floor to ceiling windows and leather sofas were magnificent. The spacious kitchen had all the amenities. The five beautifully decorated bedrooms and reading lofts offered ample quiet time areas. The large game room equipped with pool table, chess table and bar area and the indoor spa room were great gathering areas. A return visit is in the cards.

Manager response: Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review of your stay! We are happy to hear you had such a great time and we hope to have you back again in the future. Cheers!
Something obviously went terribly wrong in the construction of this house. It does have five bedrooms and a spectacular view, but at some point in time it was finished and furnished as cheaply as possible. Two upstairs bedrooms slant badly downhill--that might be charming in an old log cabin, but not in an eight year old home. The garage is sinking in places and is useless. The deck supports and piers appear to be moving downhill as well. All the beds are small, sagging and uncomfortable. The kitchen is poorly equipped. The entryway tile floor is crumbling apart. It is painfully obvious there has been no owner TLC for quite a while. We have stayed in VRBO properties many times in the Alma/Fairplay area as well as many other places and I have never written a bad review. This is not up to VRBO standards by a long shot. There are many much nicer properties in this area for about the same price.

Manager response: We are so sorry to hear that you were unhappy with your stay. We were very surprised to hear this, since we have only ever received positive feedback from our guests. With regard to the home's construction, we had it checked out thoroughly by a well known construction engineer, as we had noticed a little settling. The engineer said all was just fine, the home is structurally sound, and that slight settling in log homes is to be expected. The majority of the furnishings in the home were quite expensive, and we have received many compliments on the decor and art in the home. We are sorry to hear that it did not mesh with your tastes. We wish you would have approached us with some of your concerns during your stay, however we do apologize for the inconvenience, and wish you the best of luck.
Loved it..........Awesome place.

We took this home last weekend and we just fell in love with it. Whole house is very neat and clean and well decorated. Ver y nice views. Our kids loved indoor hot tub (easily fits 6ppl) and pool table. Also every floor of the house had great amenities and view..........I cannot praise this enough...........I would love spend more wkends in this place.
