About the Property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Hot Tub (Sleeps 13 in Beds,+2 on Couches)

The COZY BURRO is undoubtedly one of the best and most unique properties in the area. It has been described by guests as the ideal 'Retreat, Relaxation, and Recreational Paradise'. We are located on five acres of pristine pine and aspen forest, and adjacent to over 150 acres of gorgeous open space forest. The property is accessible year round. The remodeled home blends an ideal setting for seclusion as well as easy accessibility to major attractions and amenities. The property is ideal for entertaining, family reunions, executive retreats, or intimate getaways. We've even had a wedding here!

The COZY BURRO is conveniently located centrally in Colorado in the heart of diverse Park County, within walking distance to the quaint mountain town of Fairplay, a river, and a fishing reservoir. It is the ideal base camp to enjoy all that Colorful Colorado has to offer, situated at 9985 feet above sea level. For those looking to unwind... just kick back, relax, and let the pristine setting melt the stress away. Easy access year round.

Car: Necessary

If you picture a Gold Rush miner as a grizzled old guy leading a burro, you might still see that today in Fairplay! Especially during its annual Burro Days races and celebration. There's also Mountain Man Rendezvous each July, where you can watch re-enactments of Colorado's earliest days. South Park is the hidden gem of Colorado, thousands of miles of trails, National forest, mountains, and central to everything with the lowest population density. It is true Colorado.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: The Cozy Burro is owned by three Colorado families. All of our families have children. We were looking for a second home, and retreat style location to be able to host small groups and build family legacies. Our families spend countless hours of fun and quality time with friends and family here doing just that…building memories and relationships that will last forever.

Why the Owner Chose Fairplay, CO, USA:
After looking at hundreds of properties in both Summit Park County areas, we ran across this unique setting and fell in love. South Park is in the center of it all, has easy access, a more moderate climate than ski towns (even though it’s higher), and is less crowded. Fairplay is a quaint town with all the amenities need for a getaway, while keeping the rustic mountain town feel. The surrounding mountain views are breathtaking, and the area truly feels like this is what Colorado was meant to be.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Cozy Burro is unique for several reasons. The property and land is very usable, and has hours of hiking right on the property. The location is secluded, yet very close to town and amenities. It’s an easy jaunt to skiing, fishing, four wheeling, forest trails, hot springs, and much more. The property is easily accessible year round, and has plowing guaranteed. The home is updated, well laid out and comfortable. What we (and guests) enjoy most about the property is the comfort and design of the home, the spaciousness of the usable land, the ease of access to everything, volleyball court, hiking, and of course the award winning two 18-hole “Extreme Mountain Croquet Golf Courses” on the land. In the winter it turns into a wonderland for cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and warming up by the fire after a great day of downhill at Breckenridge (without the high costs).
