Our mountain home has just been tastefully renovated to make your stay memorable in every way! With its charming rustic farmhouse feel and new wrap around deck with front porch, newly installed kitchen cabinets and granite countertops with a farmhouse sink, you are sure to be able to unwind inside as you enjoy our comfortable surroundings, or step outside to take in the fresh mountain air! On the main level you will find the living room with wood burning stove, kitchen/pantry, eating area with table for 6 (as well as extra seating for 2 at the island extension, if needed), 1 queen bedroom, 1 bathroom with oversized tile shower, and laundry/mudroom area. Upstairs you will find 1 queen bedroom, 1 room with 2 single beds, and a bathroom with a newly installed shower with bench seat. (Upon request, we have one queen and one single self-inflating bed, and a pak' n play for babies/toddlers). With its fresh interior paint, refinished main level hardwood floors, and many new kitchen appliances and accessories, you are sure to enjoy your time indoors relaxing by the wood burning stove. On warmer days open up the french doors to let in that fresh mountain air! Our home is warm and inviting, filled with natural light. The many windows allow you to enjoy near and distant views of our property and beyond. You will feel at peace when you wake up to mountain views and spectacular sunrises from our bedrooms!
And that is just the beginning! Enjoy your days and evenings outside on the large deck with over 5 acres to roam. Whether you choose to simply relax and read your favorite book on the deck or take a walk on the property, listen for the many birds (including eagles) and watch for the abundant wildlife that inhabit our area. As you enter the property, pause and enjoy the moment as you are greeted by spectacular views of Mt. Silverhills. We are secluded and surrounded by trees giving you the ultimate in privacy, but you are only 5 minutes from the historic South Park mining town of Fairplay. We are on a county-maintained road for easy access, and have regular snowplow service during the winter months (we recommend a 4-wheel drive vehicle during our snowier times of the year). You will be located only 25 minutes to skiing and summer fun in victorian Breckenridge and many other resorts in Summit County! By staying in the Fairplay area, you will drive a little, and save ALOT! We have a large open space with plenty of parking available-including room for your RV and summer/winter play toys! You are sure to make many memories with family and friends sitting around our large fire pit while roasting hot dogs and s'mores! The porch and deck are outfitted with rockers, swings, a hammock, propane fire pit and grill, and 6 person table with umbrella. You and the kids will feel safe and secure riding bikes or sledding around on our property during the day and stargazing at night.
We are within 30 miles of many iconic Colorado outdoor activities: gold medal fishing waters, 4-wheeling, river rafting, hot springs relaxing, hiking (everything from short, easy hikes to challenging climbs on Colorado's 14ers), horseback riding, gold-panning, mountain biking, geocaching, downhill and cross country skiing, snowboarding , ice skating, snowshoeing, snow mobiling, tubing, and sledding! The entrance to Beaver Creek National Forest is about 5-10 minutes from the cabin. Here you can enjoy wildlife viewing, a picnic, and abundant outdoor activities. If shopping and people watching are more to your liking, nearby Breckenridge, the Silverthorne Outlet Stores, Buena Vista, Salida (and of course, Fairplay and Alma) will be your destinations of choice! There is an abundance of wonderful dining and shopping options in all of these places. As Colorado natives, we are very familiar with the area and are happy to help you find what best fits your vacation needs. We can direct you to places like Montgomery Reservoir where you can take an easy hike to see Magnolia Mills, cascading streams, and beautiful views of some of Colorado's majestic 14,000 foot mountains (14ers!).
