Overview

About the property

Log Cabin, 3 Bedrooms with balcony, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Aspen Vista got its name from the magnificent aspen and spruce forest and amazing snow capped mountain vistas surrounding the home, providing a beautiful and peaceful setting in any season. Relax in quiet and complete privacy warming yourself by the cozy fire inside or on the large deck gazing up at the stars in the private hot tub, surrounded by forest.The two story high windows bring you close to nature as you look out at forest, mountains, and alpine fields. Upper deck off of the loft bedroom has gorgeous sunset colors in the evening. Drift off to sleep in very comfortable queen sized beds with nice linens and plenty of comforters to snuggle in.In the loft, gaze at stars through skylight. Located a mere 85 miles from Denver and 20 miles from Breckenridge, this bright, cozy, updated home offers a very private, quiet escape for a romantic get-away, family gathering, or group of up to six people. Email us for more photos, and be sure to read our reviews to get a better feel for this special property.

The newly remodeled log cabin is on two heavily wooded acres and backs to 35 acre undeveloped parcels, providing complete privacy. It has a sunny, open floor plan. The home features a spacious loft bedroom upstairs with a skylight for star gazing from your very comfortable queen sized bed, and a private balcony. Quality linens, cozy comforters, and plenty of throw blankets in all bedrooms help ensure a good night's sleep . Dressers in every bedroom make it easy to unpack and make yourself at home. There are two bedrooms on the main level. The master bedroom has a very comfortable queen bed, and the small bedroom has a comfortable 8' double size futon. The living room offers hard wood floors, a new wood burning stove with a large glass front to view the fire, and a two story vaulted ceiling with big windows providing outstanding views and to surround the home in warm, natural sunlight. It opens onto a large deck with a six person hot tub to enjoy the amazing mountain views. Although the cabin has a rustic feel, the tastefully decorated cabin is very comfortable and updated. The fully equipped kitchen with new appliances, granite tile counter tops, and wood island provides all you will need to prepare gourmet meals. The travertine tiled bathroom has a bathtub with yet another window with a view! Create your own adventure exploring the two wooded acres, or walk a short distance to National Forest trails. Snowshoe, ski, hike or bike right from the cabin, and try out the sledding hill! Be sure to walk to the alpine meadow to treat yourself to one of the best alpenglow displays in Colorado….you’ll have mountains surrounding you in every direction! You’ll often see elk, deer, and even moose if you take a stroll at sunrise or sunset.

If you decide to stay in, the cabin has everything you’ll need to relax…music (cd player/stereo and a guitar), books, games, and videos. If you can pull yourself away from the warm glow of the fire and star filled sky (no light pollution to obstruct them!), there are some wonderful restaurants, shops, wine tasting, galleries, and live music in the town of Fairplay, just minutes away. Classes in art, jewelry making, and beading are available in town. The nearby historic ghost town of South Park can be visited summer-autumn. The charming Victorian town of Breckenridge, known for its world class skiing, is full of restaurants, shops, and night life, and is just 25 minutes away. It also has a full cultural program in the summer with wonderful outdoor concerts. Cottonwood Hot Springs are a short drive away. Aspen Vista is open year round for you to enjoy a quiet retreat in all seasons. If you are looking for something for the kids to do in warmer weather, they'll love the big playground, skate park and sandy 'beach' in Alma just about 10 minutes away.

This is our family cabin that we only rent when we are not using it, so it should have everything you need for a very peaceful and comfortable stay. We love the cabin and area and are happy to offer lots of information about the surrounding area that only locals know about (special trails, unique fishing spots, etc).

NO SMOKING OF ANY TYPE IS ALLOWED IN CABIN OR ON PROPERTY.

About Karen Beesley

We love the mountains, outdoor adventure, and peace & quiet. We found all of these things at the Aspen Vista. It is incredible to find a spot that is so secluded and private. We have spent endless week-ends exploring the rocky mountains the last 15 years, and when we saw this property, we knew in an instant this was the spot we wanted to spend our free time. With every week-end, we discover a new trail and new adventure. It is amazing to us how much there is to do in the area...and how wonderful it is to do nothing but enjoy the peace and tranquility of the cabin, maybe just taking a stroll amid the mountains surrounding the alpine field or throwing some horse shoes.

Karen Beesley purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Karen Beesley chose South Central

We traveled around Colorado for over 10 years before deciding on this unique cabin and area. It's wonderful for outdoor adventure in all seasons. From the door you can have fun biking, hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, sledding and never have to get in your car. We love all the wildlife we see nearly every visit (elk, deer, and once even a moose)! We love the Colorado outdoors, and this is the perfect place to enjoy so many adventures without crowds. We have spent endless week-ends exploring the rocky mountains the last 15 years, and when we saw this property, we knew in an instant this was the spot we wanted to spend our free time. With every week-end, we discover new trails and new adventures. It is amazing to us how much there is to do in the area...and how wonderful it is to do nothing but enjoy the peace and tranquility of the cabin, maybe just taking a stroll amid the mountains surrounding the alpine field or throwing some horse shoes. This is truly a little slice of heaven.

What makes this cabin unique

Although our lot is two acres, the lots around us are 35 acres and untouched (and national forest on the other side of those!), so we get access to miles of open space outside our door! You will not find a another spot this quiet.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We've stayed in many cabins in the past, but none with views and silence like this. Loved resting in the hot tub too, enjoying the view and hearing nothing but the breeze. At night, relaxing on the balcony just staring at the stars, never seen so many!"

Notes:
Complete relaxation and serenity on 2 quiet acres. Hike or bike right from the cabin or explore the endless trails nearby. Gorgeous stroll in alpine field in front of cabin; wildflowers in summer, great snowshoeing in winter. Sledding hill great for kids in winter. Shady woods of aspen and spruce keep you cool in summer. Wildlife abounds! Gaze at a million stars from hot tub, decks, or from inside cabin at night. Serene. It is a great place to explore with a four legged friend. Fully housetrained dogs who never scratch or chew furniture or floors are welcome, but must be approved in advance. Dogs are not allowed on any furniture, especially beds, and cannot be left in cabin alone unless in a kennel. Guests must clean up after their pets outside. Guests are asked to vacuum up any dog hair on furniture and floors. Our guests who have brought dogs have been great and have followed our pet rules which has allowed us to continue to allow dogs.

Beautiful, peaceful cabin in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful trip and loved staying in the cabin. It was so quiet and peaceful up there. We never even saw another person near the cabin! We loved the hot tub and outdoor fire pit, and walking the dirt road trails around the property. Easy drive into Breckinridge! We would definitely visit again!

Beautiful cabin, hot tub and land

  • 4 of 5

Very cozy little cabin. Hot tub was amazing and the land was breathtaking. I was frustrated that I had paid a $200 cleaning fee and had to do much of the clean up myself (in order to get a refund of my deposit - per the check out list). TV was in a very awkward spot for watching.

Owner's Response: Happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at our cabin. We really enjoy the hot tub too! To clear up any confusion, the cleaning fee is only $75, much lower than fees at other cabins. The only cleaning we request is that guests wash and put away dishes and wipe off kitchen counters, which is what has been expected in all the homes in which I have stayed in the last 20 years. We like the fireplace, rather than tv, to be in the center of the living room as that is where we gather to spend time together. Warmly, Karen

Wonderful quaint cabin in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed every single minute we had at this wonderful cabin. When we arrived, the place was extremely clean and ready for us. We were able to cook homeade meals with the supplies provided and a few trips to the local grocery store, something that we loved doing! We also loved the hot tub on the front porch! In the evenings, we would go in the hot tub and shut the lights off in the cabin and look at the abundance of stars....truly an impeccable sight! We kept quite busy after long days of skiing or exploring nearby towns by playing the board games provided, listening to music and warming up by the wood stove. Overall, this cabin was more than what we expected and we will most definitely keep it in mind when planning another trip to the mountains!

Holidays rates may be higher.

You may inquire about waiving cleaning fee if you would like to clean the cabin yourself; this is only under special circumstances.

Although we rent our cabin for just one night during the week, we will usually not rent for just one night on week-ends unless one of the nights is already rented. You are welcome to ask. In the winter months, we are often at our cabin on week-ends, so we will often only rent on winter week-ends if your stay is four or more nights. There are always exceptions to this, so please ask! We are happy to share information on our favorite trails and things to do in the area.
