"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. : )"

"Lilly and Wendell were very gracias hosts. The house was immaculate and very well maintained. The setting was serene and made me feel I was in the wilderness although I was only about 2 miles from downtown Woodland Park. My 4-legged friend and I had a great time fishing and playing in the pond and trying to catch the big boy trout stuck in the overflow pool. I almost had him but he won out and remained until the next person gives it a try. Hint-he likes live grasshoppers! I would highly recommend renting from Wendell and Lilly in any of their beautiful properties."

"Wonderful home with incredible views. We really liked how close to Salida the home was so we could run into town. The hot tub and sauna were so nice after being in the mountains for the day. The home was very well equipped with everything we needed."

"This place is amazing! Probably the nicest VRBO we have stayed in. There is plenty of room in the house, the views are priceless, and the location was secluded but not too far out of town. Stunning sunsets on the deck and from inside the house. We hiked around the lake and around the property. No doubt, better than we expected. Initially, I was concerned about the location and distance from the city, but it was not bad at all. When we come back to C Springs, we will most certainly stay at this house again."
