About Dan Green
We are local residents that live in Westminster, CO We are originally Midwesterners hailing from Michigan and Iowa. We now call Westminster, CO our home with our 2 children. We love spending time at this cabin when we can, but also love letting others enjoy it when we can't. We both grew up in rural areas and this place gives us that feeling of home every time we walk in the door. We truly hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
Dan Green purchased this Cabin in 2017
Why Dan Green chose Valley of the Sun
We looked over much of the state for the right place for us to have a second home. This location and layout is everything we dreamed for entertaining our friends and family. With the large kitchen, and 3 separate levels of living space, we knew we had found the perfect spot to live out our dream. There are over 8 acres to hike and wander through, but you still have neighbors down the lane so you don't feel too remote or unsafe. We knew this would be the perfect getaway for our family ski vacations and summer retreats.
What makes this Cabin unique
We searched all over the Fairplay/Breckenridge area for this perfect cabin. The large front windows give you a breathtaking view of the snow capped mountiains, including the 14'er Mt. Sherman. The cabin is nestled on 8.3 acres of beautiful pines that literally whistle in the wind. The wrap around deck and hot tub are in angled in front of the cabin to take in the beautiful views as you relax. You have plenty of room to hike around the acreage, many times you see some of the foxes from the local den. Moose have been sighted many times walking through the property.

Great get away!
Peaceful cabin back in the woods! We enjoyed the hot tub, sitting on the deck with a great view, and cooking in the nice kitchen! It’s a little bit of a drive from touristy destinations, however we really enjoyed that, it was more authentic!
Perfect for our girls trip!!
We came out to Colorado on our girls trip with plans to mostly just relax and spend time together and this house was perfect for us! It was clean and well stocked with toilet paper and towels and kitchen supplies. The hot tub was clean and had a gorgeous view! We were glad for the 4 wheel drive when it snowed and melted and got a little muddy! We would definitely recommend this house!!
Thanks again for staying at our place, so happy you enjoyed yourselves!
Loved the snow!
Beautiful cabin, so happy we chose this! If we would have stayed elsewhere we probably wouldn’t have seen any snow. This house is so high there was plenty of snow.
Spring Break Snowboard Trip
Awesome place to stay with a group of guys on spring break. Easily accesssible to all the major ski resorts, Breck, Vail, Keystone. Beautiful cabin with ample space for a group of 8 on my trip. Highly recommend for skiers/outdoors people looking for a great get away.
Perfect Mountain Escape - Great Any Time of the Year!
We loved the breathtaking views from the front wraparound porch and the cabin's gorgeous open, spacious floor plan. This cabin had absolutely everything we needed for a long weekend They supply everything from dinnerware and utensils to pots and pans, the bedding, such as linens and sheets and the 3 bathrooms had plenty of towels for our hot showers as well as extra ones for the hot tub. There was ample space for our party of 10 to live, play and sleep comfortably. In the basement, we played pool and darts and on the main level, there is a cabinet full of board games. A washer and dryer were available and there is a second refrigerator in the basement which came in handy for food storage for our large group. The 8 acres of property offered plenty of real estate for the kids and adults to play, run, sled, snowshoe and hike. We enjoyed the wood burning stove, movie nights and everyone loved the hot tub. For anyone able to totally disconnect, wifi is available. Should you need anything, the cabin is a short 10-minute drive into the quaint little town of Fairplay. If you ski, you are 26 miles from Breckenridge. You are also within 1-2 hours of snowmobiling, rafting, kayaking and mountain biking. Not only is this a beautiful place to relax and rejuvenate, you are close to year-round family-friendly activities and attractions. Though the roads are well maintained and plowed, in the snowy winter months, we recommend a 4WD or an AWD vehicle to best access the cabin. We can't wait to go back and hopefully be able to stay longer next time!
A spacious and immaculate log cabin nestled in the pine trees overlooking Mt. Sherman!
Not just your typical tiny log cabin… this is a spacious and luxurious 3 bed 3 bath log home nestled in the woods, just 7 miles from the quaint little town of Fairplay! Although there are neighbors somewhat close-by in the surrounding vicinity, the home is private and secluded for your enjoyment.
The big kitchen is complete with everything you need to cook and serve a meal, (except the food). A live-edge wood slab sitting on top of a stone divider creates the unique breakfast bar, with seating for two… absolutely beautiful!! The dining area features a rustic farmhouse style dining table with seating for eight. The great room has comfy leather furniture, a wood stove, a cabinet full of board games, and a big screen TV. The unique hand-crafted log staircase leading up to the loft is a must see! There are down comforters on all of the beds to keep you warm and cozy. The lower level features a game room with a pool table and dart board, and an outdoor hot tub. Breathe in the crisp mountain air and enjoy the gorgeous mountain views from the wrap-around deck!
You will feel like it is your second home while you are there, and there is plenty to do to keep you occupied and entertained without ever leaving the cabin! But, if you feel the need to get out and about, the town of Breckenridge and its ski resort is only 26 miles down Hwy 9, the town of Buena Vista is 45 miles down Hwy 285, and the town of Fairplay is just a 10-minute drive from the cabin. In Fairplay, you will find friendly local people, restaurants, unique little shops, art galleries, and more!
Word of warning… there is easy access to the property via a very good county road, but even though the roads to this home are well maintained and plowed in the winter, at 11,000’+ elevation I would highly advise 4-wheel-drive in the cold weather months.
For us, staying in this cabin was pure luxury! Its rustic ambiance gives it a very comfortable and “homey” feeling. We didn’t want to leave! Overall, our time spent at this cabin was a thoroughly enjoyable experience, and a relaxing little mountain get-away!
