"House is very clean and ready. All additional blankets and bedding are available. Views are pristine. I suggest a hike towards London mountain (left up the road) and at the fork take it right towards Hoosier Pass. The London Mill is up towards the tree line and a wonderful adventure. Just past the Mill is a back bowl area and pond with incredible views for even the experienced mountain goers. Its a Must see and easy hike of about 3.5 miles round trip. The Fire pit near the creek is exceptional and very big. It can handle any pyro that wants a big fire and loves star gazing... Wonderful place and great hiking area..."

"Our family of 7 stayed here for the week of July 12th, for our first visit to amazing Colorado. We were pleased that this cabin is as beautiful as pictured and even roomier in person. Also, it's great that it comes so well equipped from the start with shampoo/soap etc. in the bathrooms, extra toilet paper/paper towels, etc. That's really a nice thoughtful touch! We enjoyed one evening by the fire pit (the guests before us did not leave water in the buckets by the fire pit as instructed but the guys in our group made sure to refill the buckets prior to our departure, for the next guests), using the grill and the wonderful hot tub. There was always plenty of hot water for cooking, showers, and washing clothes and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare several meals. We never ended up using the wood stove but it looks lovely for colder nights. The beds are all comfortable and after some of us got past the initial insomnia associated with altitude sickness, slept very soundly. Sadly, we never ended up seeing any bear or moose, but did enjoy feeding the various birds and chipmunks around the property. The starry nights by the campfire or on the deck were AMAZING. Nothing but peace and quiet, though we did meet a couple of neighbors on morning walks and they are friendly. The location is great - not far from town but definitely set back into the scenic woods/up the mountain a bit. We are very glad that we well prepared for this major road trip by renting a 4-wheel-drive vehicle since we knew that we would be driving on unpaved mountain roads, not only here near the house, but in other areas of Colorado as well. That, along with husband's expert driving, made the parking at the house (and driving up mountains) look easy though he did back down into the drive each time in order to get out easily (it's quite an incline). We all fell in love with both Alma and Fairplay - friendly, laid-back people and some cute shops and restaurants (we enjoyed McCall's in Fairplay). Stopped at High Paw Pet Supplies in Fairplay to buy some souvenirs (treats and toys) for our cats back home in Illinois and met Andre the Giant Cat and had a little mini tour of their rescue facility (great people!). Shopped regularly at Prather's Market in Fairplay and Al-Mart. We really enjoyed an adventurous drive up to Kite Lake. Loved Montogomery Reservoir, Breckenridge, Sand Dunes Nat. Park, Garden of the Gods... Nice to have had this beautiful house as our home base while in CO. : )"

"The property was beautiful with plenty of room to spread out. We truly enjoyed the view and it was a short ride to Breckinridge. Diane and Doug are very accommodating hosts and were so helpful with great suggestions of things to do."

"My wife and I with are 3 children stayed here over Christmas. We had a blast! The kids loved the large areas outside for snow ball fights and building snowmen. The kitchen had just about everything you would need. They kept the driveway cleared to get us out when we needed. Still recommend 4 wheel drive if your staying in winter months. We drove into Breckinridge almost everyday did not have to many issues on the mountain roads. (We are from Florida so any snow is a problem for us). If we make it back to Breckinridge we will definitely call Susan for a cabin. Thanks for giving us a great white Christmas"
