  • Perfect stat

    "This was the perfect place. Secluded, beautiful view, great owner who showed up at 8am to shovel the snow for us before we left. There is no place like this to stay. We loved it. This is exactly what I'd hoped for when I booked this trip."

  • Our stay at the mountain cabin.

    "We had a wonderful, beautiful, peaceful stay at the mountain cabin retreat. The area was gorgeous. Saw lots of wildlife, had a great dinner at the South Park Steakhouse in Fairplay and did some shopping and sight seeing in the area. Had coffee & breakfast at the Java Moose, also very good. I would highly recommend this cabin to others. Hope the hot tub will be in working order the next time we stay."

  • Great cabin, great location

    "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."

  • Great Cabin in the Woods

    "Great getaway, off in the woods with dynamic view in every direction. A mountain stream running through the property was the quintessential babbling brook. The view from the living room through the picture window might as well been a painting, especially at sunset. The ladies in our group really enjoyed the décor. The cabin is decorated for all seasons so will fit any time of the year. I use the word cabin loosely, it is really a three level house with all the amenities you would expect. I did a lot of hiking and exploring the area and burning lots of "digital film". You don't have to go out for wildlife, just look out the windows. Deer have a smorgasbord in the front yard. The kitchen was fully equipped including a dishwasher. I'm ready to go back!"

The combination of mountains and lakes provides a gorgeous setting for a visit any time of the year. One of the top selling points about Fairplay lodging is that it is only about 80 miles from Denver. Fairplay is also only a short drive from the city of Breckenridge.

Fairplay Cabins Put You Near an Abundance of Activities

You'll find plenty of things to do here anytime of year. Fairplay lodging puts you close to some of the top locations in the United States for skiing. Ski Cooper is a well known resort in south central Colorado with 26 runs for skiers of all levels. Fairplay is known as the trout capital of Colorado and the area features some of the best rivers and reservoirs for brown and rainbow trout. There are also numerous opportunities for hiking and mountain biking.

A Great Place to go for a Drive

Among the things visitors to Fairplay cabins say they like best are the scenic roads that go through the area. Mosquito Pass is the highest mountain road that you will find anywhere in the lower 48 states. You can also drive through the beautiful Hoosier Pass that leads right into the ski areas of Breckenridge. The road takes you along the Continental Divide with great views of Mount Lincoln and Quandry Peak.

You Will Love the Peace and Quiet

The cabins are located in secluded areas that will provide you with a great escape from your normal day to day routine. You will find the tranquility of the area refreshing.
