Why Sean chose South Central

After travelling much of the world, nothing compares to the view, activities and tranquility of Twin Lakes.

What makes this house unique

Waking up to one of the most amazing views in the world and enjoying some hot chocolate while star-gazing at night.

Most amazing views of the Rockies!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience. The owner worked with us to get us into the property on short notice. The views are the best you will find in the Rockies and the house was great! Trails are an abundance and the hike on the Colorado trail just 10 minutes from the door is an easy, beautiful hike. Independence pass was a 30 minute drive and worth it! I would recommend this house to anyone that wants amazing mountain scenery and getting away from the hustle and bustle of the cities! Thanks for sharing your house!

Second time to rent to property, and it was as perfect as the first time. Sean and Debbie suggested hikes and points of interest that we loved. Wish we were still there. Jeannie & Larry Roberts.

Heavenly Place!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin at Twin Lakes is just perfect for a small family or individual. It has everything you need so you can prepare all meals here and never have to leave the area. The proximity to some of the most beautiful scenery and hiking trails in Colorado is incredible. I cannot say enough good things about this place and location. Just perfect place to unplug!

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Very beautiful location. Mountain and lake views are stunning.

The owner was very responsive and quite helpful.

The location was perfect for my family, which included two teens. We were 30 minutes from white rafting with Noah's Ark in Buena Vista, 50 minutes from horseback riding with Platte near Fairplay, and about an hour from Breckenridge where we did Alpine Slide. We spent some time at the lake in front of the house and hiking nearby.

House itself was well-kept and very nice. Kitchen was well stocked and bedrooms were nice.

I would definitely consider renting again.

Beautiful Views for Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin provided an ideal option for a relaxing weekend, and the views were incredible, both during the day and at night for stargazing. The hosts were easy to work with and provided ample communication and tips. We weren't familiar with the area, and were happy to be so close to Leadville, Buena Vista and great fishing options. We hope to be able to stay at the place for future getaways!

Note to future guests - a member of our group utilized Google Maps in lieu of the directions provided by the hosts, and they not only ended up at the wrong location, but took very rocky dirt path that should only be utilized by Jeeps or similar all terrain vehicles. The correct directions and path worked great.
