Property description

Robin's Nest is a gorgeous 4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom custom vacation home located in a secluded area of Valley of the Sun. The home sits on a heavily wooded property with gorgeous mountain views. Robin's Nest is truly at the top of the mountain with views that extend for miles and miles.

If you love the outdoors, you may enjoy many activities without having to go too far...grab the snow shoes or your cross-country skiis and take a walk in the woods behind the house; hike the Pike National Forest right from the back yard; go fly-fishing in many of the lakes and streams nearby (Fairplay is known as the 'Fly-Fishing Capital of Colorado'); or access world-class ski slopes in Breckenridge just a 25 mile drive away.

On the main level of the home is the spacious great room. It has two-story windows that let in lots of light and frame the beautiful views of the mountains to the SE. It has seating for several people with two couches. The kitchen is located just off of the great room and is beautifully appointed with new appliances and lots of counter space. It has every amenity you will need for your stay. The dining area has a big table that seats 6-8 adults. It is also a great place to get together for a game of cards or to put together a jig-saw puzzle. Also on the main level are two bedrooms, both with queen beds, and a full bath.

Upstairs, there is a master loft with a queen size Select Comfort bed, a large walk-in closet, and a private bath with huge walk-in shower. There is lots of room and great views of the mountains from the two story windows.

Downstairs, the windows line the entire length of the room and provide great views of the mountains. There is outdoor access from this level, where you may step outside with the snow shoes for a walk in the woods, or come in from a long day of skiing and rest your skiis or snowboard on the rack in this room. There is a huge game room with a foosball table, puzzles and games, two couches, and a TV with DVD and Play Station. Satellite TV is provided. Also on this level is a full bath and a fourth bedroom that has two twin beds. There is a full size futon bed in the game room for additional guests.

Outside on the deck, there is a gas grill for barbecuing and a patio set where you can sit and enjoy a cup of coffee while taking in the views or watching for moose. There is a family of 5 moose that frequent the area and have been spotted by many families.

Fairplay/Alma is the activity center of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Activities closeby include: skiing, snowboarding, hiking, mountain climbing, snow-shoeing, horseback riding (winter too), ice climbing, fishing, hunting, rafting, snow-mobiling, 4-wheeling, ATVing, mine exploring, canoeing, kayaking, and much much more. If you can think of an outdoor activity, you will probably find it within 10-30 minutes of the cabin. It is a great place to call 'Base Camp'. You can find all of these activities within minutes of the home:

**FISHING ... Gold Medal/Blue Ribbon Fishing--5 area lakes and public river a short drive away

**National Forest/Montgomery Reservoir; Lincoln Falls; ice climbing; skiing; snowboarding; and some of the best snow-shoeing and 4-wheeling in Colorado within minutes of home.

**Fairplay (15 min S): Historic Mining Town, fly-fishing, panning for gold.

**Breckenridge (45 min N): skiing, snow-boarding, snowmobiling, fishing, boating, golfing.

**Jefferson Lake (60 min NE): trout fishing, walking. **Buena Vista (60 min S): Hot Springs, fishing, raft the Arkansas River.

**Salida (90 min S): fishing, hiking, jeep trails, rafting.

**Como (30 min NE): Historic Railroad District.

**Cripple Creek (1 hr 45 min SE): gold mining, gambling.

**Canon City (1 hr 45 min SE): home of the Royal Gorge.

**Leadville (1 hr 45 min S, then N): mountain climbing, antiquing, ghost town.

**Manitou Springs (1 hr 50 min SE): Cave of the Winds, Pikes Peak.

This home is beautiful all seasons of the year. The views are amazing because we're at 11,000 feet! It is about 7 miles from the main road and the drive up to the cabin is over a hard-packed gravel road; 4-wheel drive is not a necessity in the summer months, but recommended in the winter months.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Steve and I live in Texas. We have six children and six grandchildren (so far). Our kids and grand kids are spread from coast to coast, and several places in between!

Why the Owner Chose Fairplay:
Since our family is spread all over the country, we wanted a place in a serene location where we could congregate and enjoy each other's company. We chose Fairplay, Colorado for its beautiful mountains, proximity to Breckenridge and central U.S. location.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If you want to be close to skiing and numerous other activities, yet at the same time really 'get away', you will appreciate this home as we do!
