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!

Just you and the mountains and the stars
Our priority for choosing a vacation rental is privacy. We want to be as far away as possible from people and the hustle and bustle of modern day society. You get this at Mountain View Cabin. No neighbors in sight. The occasional dog bark. Beautiful mountain views. A mountain stream. Clear skies for the most part. A surprise 2 days of snow during the first week of May. All you could wish for in a Colorado vacation. The design of the cabin was ideal. We loved the wrap around porch and hope to return when the weather is warmer in order to enjoy it more. The cabin can easily accommodate a large family with its three bedrooms and extra loft space. It was just 2 of us but we loved the kitchen and the open concept main floor. Everything you needed was provided. We usually cook the majority of meals (we bring Plated with us) and the kitchen had every cooking tool we needed. Fairplay is nearby and the Java Moose has great morning coffee and pastries. Dillon is 30 minutes to the north with its restaurants and on the other side of I-70 are the shops at the Silverton outlet mall. Altitude adjustment was a bit of a problem (we are old folks). Although we did drink a ton of water, next time we plan to spend extra time in Denver. We will return, often! After years of looking for places to stay in Colorado, we may have found the one. The loveliness of the home, its location in the mountains with its privacy and the fact that it's only 2 hours from Denver are all pluses for us!
Wonderful log cabin in a beautiful setting.
We Snow-shoed on 15” of fresh snow, super fun! The cabin was very nice with great Mountain views. Accommodations were very comfortable & cozy!
Absolutely the best quiet getaway we ever had
We enjoyed our stay at the Mountain Creek Cabin very much. It was equipped with everything we needed, had very comfortable beds, and offered amazing fews to mountains and trees.
Beautiful Remote Property
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

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.
