"This cabin is conveniently located if your plans are to do day trips around the central CO area. It is comfortable, clean, and easily the best stocked VRBO we have rented. The fireplace was definitely a nice feature in late October, it didn't take long to heat up the whole place when we returned every evening.
The kitchen was stocked with all the little extras - spices etc, which can cost a lot of money and is not easy to tote while flying so that was much appreciated. They even provided a fresh can of coffee. Sounds like a small thing but arriving late and getting settled in, it was just something we didn't have to figure out!
The kitchen also had a wonderful assortment of dishes and cookware. All in good shape and clean! The table is large and a great place for family games in the evening. There is a ping pong table and an air hockey game in the basement, too.
The deck is large and in good shape. We enjoyed wrapping up in blankets and sitting out there after dark to count the stars. The daytime view was nice as well, and we enjoyed our coffee out there in the mornings.
We visited Pikes Peak, Manitou Springs and Garden of the Gods one day, Breckenridge, Frisco & Dillon one day, and Buena Vista the last day. THAT place is very close and spectacular. Next trip - more time there. We soaked in the outside hot springs watching the snow. It was too late in the year for white water rafting and biking so we did some sight seeing and came back to visit Mt Sherman and other mountains. The old town of Fairplay was also already closed down for the season but some of the shops were still open. There is a large assortment of brochures and area - relevant reading material, which we found to be very useful.
There is a nice grocery store in town conveniently about 2 miles away which was well stocked and competitive with prices.
If you plan to travel to Mt Sherman and other nearby ranges I recommend an AWD or 4 wheel drive SUV or truck - the roads are not all paved. They are definitely passable but not maintained this time of year.
We enjoyed driving the roads near the cabin and saw much wildlife and beautiful scenery. We saw a bobcat, elk, deer, and 2 moose all within a mile or 2.
Making arrangements was also easy. The owner was prompt in responding and great to work with. All instructions and communication was handled via email. Everything was just as he said it would be so it was a super easy rental agreement.
Thanks for sharing your cabin with my family."

"The property was an excellent choice for a gathering of our children and grandchildren. The home was comfortable and spacious--appreciated all the bedrooms and bathrooms. The spacious kitchen made it easy to plan family meals (along with the grill, etc.) The proximity to the interstate, shopping center, and many area tourists spots make it an ideal location. We found the home clean and well supplied. We appreciated the quiet neighborhood. The view from the deck was fantastic."

"This place is everything it says and more. The pictures do not do this place justice. The views alone are worth the trip. We arrived right after Christmas and everything was snow covered. The house was stocked with everything we needed from toilet paper to linens. The temperature dropped to -9 degrees and the house remained cozy. Internet worked great and the game room was a wonderful plus.The roads were well maintained even when it snowed 6 inches one day. Can't say enough about this property. Would love to come back in the spring."
