About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bath in the aspens & pines - mountain views on 5+ acres!

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!).

About Sherri Goudeau

We are Colorado natives, and have always dreamed of owning a place in the mountains near our favorite skiing and hiking destinations!

Sherri Goudeau purchased this house in 2016

Why Sherri Goudeau chose Fairplay

We looked extensively before we found our "Silverheels Cabin". We lovingly refer to it as a cabin; however, it is not a "primitive cabin", but a lovely 3 bed, 2 bath mountain home with modern conveniences such as wifi, cell service, DirecTV, etc. We chose this area near Fairplay because of its quick access to Hwy 285 (Denver) and Hwy 9 & 24 (Colorado Springs). Besides the fabulous setting and location, the home itself is full of character and charm. It is warm and well-insulated with many windows and an abundance of natural light. It is simply a very comfortable place to enjoy a mountain getaway!

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the setting - views of the mountains and situated in aspen and pine trees! AND it still has space to spread out. Even though we have plenty of privacy and solitude, we like being close to town and on county maintained roads so we can get here quickly and enjoy our property year round.

Amazing accommodations with lots of extras

  • 5 of 5

My group was so impressed with this property. Myself and those who traveled with me have all had multiple experienced renting properties via VRBO, but no other owners have gone to the extent of what we experienced here. There are so many amenities included in the property description, but the owners went above and beyond to include items that a typical rental would not, from shampoo/conditioner to multiple offerings of fresh coffee and a nearly fully stocked pantry. These extras along with the special care and attention the owners clearly put into there property make this an exceptional rental. The owners also made sure to touch base prior to our arrival as well as during our stay to make sure all our needs and expectations were met. We were very impressed with how these owners care for their guests. The home itself is very nice. It has all the modern amenities one could desire yet stills provides a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere. The home itself is just a couple minutes from town making it very convenient to obtain any necessities, yet it is secluded, making you feel like you are alone on your own private mountain. Additionally, we found the location perfect for hiking many local trails including multiple 14ers. I just can't praise this rental and the owners enough...very impressive. We will definitely return to this rental for our future Colorado getaways.

Hands Down, the BEST!

  • 5 of 5

Warning: if you go to this lovely cabin, you will never ever want to leave! All the nice things everyone has said about Silverheels Cabin don’t come close to describing the delightful reality. We are already checking our calendars for a return visit.

Quiet, Clean, Beautiful Surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Silverheels cabin. The cabin was neat and tidy and the decor and layout is convenient for our small family. The owners had everything available that we could have forgotten (except for my wife’s glasses ;-)). Fairplay and surrounding towns are great. The landscape is awe inspiring. We hiked a few local trails and saw some sights in Colorado Springs and Florissant. Would love to return someday.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This Mountain Getaway was perfect. Sherri is very nice and has thought of everything you could possibly need. This was our first experience with a VRBO and what an awesome experience. We can only hope that future VRBO's will be able to live up to this property. Thank you for a great vacation getaway.

Car: necessary

Although there are many activities locally, our cabin is less than 45 minutes from many other popular Colorado outdoor/indoor activities such as downhill skiing/boarding, nordic center, ice skating, 4-wheeling, jeep tours, whitewater rafting, village and outlet shopping, golfing, and many more adventures just too numerous to list. Denver and Colorado Springs are about 1.5 hours away with their many sports and "big town" adventures. Please inquire if you have something specific you would like to do. As Colorado natives, we know the surrounding area well and are very happy to help you determine what best fits your vacation needs.
