About the property

Spacious 1 bedroom house with breathtaking views.

This home is ideal for those willing to spend quality time in a peaceful environment. Only 12 miles south of Breckenridge, and at the same time, far enough to avoid the crowds.

Situated in beautiful Placer Valley, this home is meant for those seeking beauty, peace and quiet. With so many outdoor activities to choose from, it's almost impossible to become bored. Ideal for hikers, skiers, anglers, climbers, or just those seeking to relax on the front porch and enjoy the surrounding views and abundant wildlife.

Easy access from Highway 9 and into the driveway, on a 1.5 acre heavily wooded lot, but still with lots of sunshine in every room.

There's a spacious living/kitchen area on the main level, with a wood burning stove to keep you warm in cool nights. Bathroom is also on main level.

There's a small bedroom upstairs with magnificent views of Mt. Lincoln and Montgomery Reservoir, with a comfortable king size bed.

Stairs to bedroom is steep. Not for people with knee injuries. Please, be aware that the house is above 11.000 feet elevation.

Closest town is Alma, 5 miles to the south, with a bar/ restaurant, a small coffee shop, and some other small business. Fairplay is another 11 miles from Alma, with more gas, lodging, dining and shopping opportunities. South Park City is a restored mining town in Fairplay, worth visiting, and open only in the summer.

Very unique setting in the heart of the Rockies.

About Cecilia L. Ward

Originally from Patagonia, Argentina, World traveler who fell in love with the area and now call it home.

Why Cecilia L. Ward chose Alma

Still close to town, but in a more peaceful and quiet area.

No noise from the street or upstairs condos.

What makes this house unique

Our idea of renting our home is addressed to a couple seeking a private, romantic getaway in a peaceful environment. There's plenty of room to accommodate more guests, but it has not been our goal. We want our guests feel comfortable with the given space.

There's abundant wildlife in the valley and in the yard. Deer, squirrels, chipmunks, pine martens, ermines, many different kind of birds, and, even moose and bears.

I find it priceless and would love to host somebody that would share this same interest.

Amazing escape

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect long weekend get away. Beautiful views, amazing decor & house plants, comfortable bed and living space, fully equipped kitchen, perfectly clean on arrival. Great location- far enough away to recharge but close enough to to go into Breckenridge for a bite to eat. The drive between is beautiful and mostly highway so not too bad even when it snowed for the entire day. We stayed beginning of March to ski and would love to come back in the summer/fall to hike Hoosier Pass. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would whole heartedly recommend.

Great Clean Property

  • 4 of 5

The hosts exhibited great communication. While the views from the living room, bedroom and porch are partially obstructed by trees and powerlines, there is a good view from the driveway. In addition the house is very close to great hiking trails, so overall I am satisfied with the location. The house was very clean, neat and has all standard amenities one would need and more. The bed was soft and very comfortable. There is a lot of carefully chosen Native American and Buddhist inspired decor. There is a large skylight in the bedroom, which is great for those who like to wake up with the sun, maybe not as great if you like to sleep in and are sensitive to light. Overall, I would definitely recommend staying at this property.

The perfect get away for privacy and beautiful Breckenridge in close proximity

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, private and cozy. We absolutely enjoyed our stay at this beautiful house. We had everything we needed, just like a hotel. Waking up to the beautiful mountain views was breath taking. We were even able to drink the ice cold water from the tap due to the well on site. There is nothing I would have changed. Cecilia was very helpful with giving ideas for activities and was always available for any questions we had. We would love to visit this home again!
