"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."

"Bernie and his wife are the best! The apartment is the basement for his home and, honestly, is one of best in appearance. Bernie's home is incredible already, but the apartment is incredible too. Plenty of space for us. Cell service is good and Wi-Fi is good. Everything you need for an awesome stay. The view goes right into the woods, so you have privacy. If you hike, you are in the middle of the best hiking around. Best of all, the price is more than right. We will definitely return.
Side note: The food in town is pretty good. Try Millonzi's Italian."

"This is a fabulous property with beautiful, picturesque views. My husband and I came with a group of people and we are so glad we did. We really wanted to get away from it all and this place was perfect. It was pet friendly, which made traveling with our dogs even better. The memory foam sleeper on the second floor pull out couch was unbelievably comfortable and was right in front of the fireplace. To top it off the view when waking up was just gorgeous. We will be back!"

"My family stayed here for a few days on a family vacation. The cabin was excellent! It had everything we needed and much more. The kitchen was well stocked, the beds were comfortable, and the hot tub was awesome. We sat in the hot tub one night and watched the stars come out. During an afternoon thunderstorm we played a few board games we found in the living room. It was great to unplug from city life and enjoy some quality family time."
