About Monica Moody

While visiting family in the Breckenridge, CO area for summer and winter vacations, we fell in love with the area and decided it would be a wonderful place to own a second home. When we found this cabin, we knew it was meant to be. We were so mesmerized by the property and cabin, that we lost track of time and missed our plane home. We love how you feel when you're at the cabin. You're away from all the stresses of daily life without being isolated. The surrounding mountains and creeks and pond make it special. It's a place for us to reconnect with family and nature. And it doesn't hurt that there are so many fun things to do nearby!

Monica Moody purchased this cabin in 2008

What makes this cabin unique

Some of our favorite activities include packing a lunch and hiking right out the door and up Mt. Sherman. It is known as one of the easiest fourteeners and the views are amazing. There is a fire pit for roasting marshmallows by the pond and on a clear night, you can see the Milkyway. Horseback riding, ATV rentals, and white water rafting are all close by. Fishing and gold paning in the creeks and pond are a favorite with the men and kids. And there's a grocery store 10 minutes away with everything you'll need for the pantry and cooking on the grill. Our favorite places to eat in Fairplay are the Brown Burro Cafe (Delicious Mexican), cheese steaks at the Dinky Dairy and everything at Millonzi's. And let us not forget Breckenridge - 23 miles from the cabin door - has everything a resort town can offer. Skiing, golfing, biking, ice skating, shopping, restaurants, tours and events.... We love it all and think you will too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to let you know that the stay at the cabin was unbeliveable. We were so amazed at the scenary and location of the cabin. We saw all types of wildlife while staying such as moose, mountain Lion, beavers and elk, what an adventure. The kids were thrilled by the fish in the pond and were overjoyed by the snow that came down while we were their. The location was close enough to larger communities but yet far enough away. I use to work for Texas Parks & Wildlife and visited many Parks and have seen very nice areas along with nice cabins, this compared to yours were no match. Your location was nicer than any location I have ever visited, and I have been to many locations.

Beautiful Remote Property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went for a winter vacation. The property is like no other! It is beautiful and remote, the perfect getaway. We enjoyed lots of snow shoeing and hiking in the area and saw lots of Moose. We drove (about 40 minutes) into Breckenridge for skiing and shopping. We absolutely want to return! If you plan on visiting in the winter be prepared for wind and snow! With four wheel drive and all weather tires we still got snowed in. The property owner and plow company were responsive and quick but be prepared for the unexpected!

Perfect Property for a Relaxing Vacation in the Colorado Mountains

  • 5 of 5

If you’re looking for a comfortable, scenic and secluded vacation in the Colorado mountains, you will be hard pressed to find a better property than this one.

The cabin itself is well appointed with every amenity you could want. The location is stunning and peaceful. You feel away from it all, but you’re only a 15-minute drive to downtown Fairplay and a 40-minute drive to Breckenridge.

Thank you, Monica, for sharing your cabin with us. It is truly a beautiful property.

We Are Rejuvenated!

  • 5 of 5

Both of our jobs are stressful. Also, we just came through Hurricane Harvey in Houston area. The trip was to celebrate our 10th Anniversary! What a fantastic getaway!! What a wonderful way to rejuvenate our spirits and celebrate being together!!!

The cabin is beautiful and very well maintained. Had all the comforts of home. We had a snowstorm for the first day and a half after we got there. Enjoyed watching the snow fall in front of a cozy fire. Couldn't have been happier with the hiking and fishing right out our door. Really enjoyed sitting on the porch and enjoying the beautiful scenery. The owners were so nice to check on us and make sure we were ok and to answer any questions we might have. Also enjoyed being close to Breckenridge.

Can't wait to go back again!

Loved the cabin

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The cabin is secluded and comfortable. One day we drove to Brenkenridge which only took about 35 minutes. We are looking forward to staying again in the summer. Joe & Paula
