There are moose, foxes, deer, elk, rabbits, and an occassional bear. The scenic outdoor area has a really nice firepit to toast marshmallows or warm up after a cold day of skiing at Breckenridge.The kids will love exploring the area around the cabin, or playing a quick game of basketball with the hoop in the driveway.
