About the property

3 Bedrooms Plus Hot Tub, Media Room, and Game Room - Sleeps 10

Pinecone Mountain Cabin is located between Fairplay and Alma just South of Breckenridge. The home is only 20 minutes from World-Class Skiing in Breckenridge. It is in the heart of the South Central Colorado Rocky Mountains and has almost every outdoor activity imaginable to offer to it's visitors.

This spectacular 3 bedroom/3 bath full Log Home has all the amenities you can imagine. It has the charm of a mountain log home and the luxury of a villa. The home is tastefully and luxuriously decorated in mountain decor. All of the rooms have custom log furniture and decorations. It is located on a secluded 10 acre property that is densely wooded with Pine, Spruce, and Aspen. The home also has mountain views from the large deck, living room and loft. The ceilings are high and vaulted with full logs and chinking visible throughout the home both inside and out.

There are 3 large bedrooms. One bedroom is located on each of the three levels. The upper level has a king size bed in the master bedroom and private bath with beautiful log furniture. There is a private deck off of this bedroom where you can enjoy a cup of coffee while watching the mountain wildlife. There is a flat screen TV to enjoy at night in the bedroom. The upper level also has a huge loft with circular cozy leather sofas to enjoy the beautiful mountain views. There is a large flat screen TV with satellite TV which has all of your favorite shows.

On the main level there is a second bedroom which also has a queen bed with custom log furniture. The bath is located right across the hallway for this bedroom. This level also has the luxurious kitchen, dining room, and family room. The kitchen has marble counter tops, stainless appliances and all the amenities a chef might want. The dining room has a gorgeous wood table which also has two leaves to seat a maximum of 10 people. The large family room has floor-to-ceiling windows with a cozy wood-burning fireplace.

The outdoor setting for this home is just gorgeous. There are tiered steps leading down from the deck or lower level to a gathering area which has comfortable wood deck chairs surrounding a fire pit where you and your family can enjoy a warm summer fire and toast marshmallows. The brave can bundle up and build a fire and watch it snow in the winter (my favorite thing to do). Whatever season you choose to vacation, this home will offer you comfort, luxury and memories that will last a lifetime.

This home is only 25 minutes from the 5 star ski resort of Breckenridge. It has world-class skiing and boarding. There is also snowmobiling, sleigh rides, ice skating, alpine tubing, and much more. Keystone and A-basin are also only a short drive from the home and offer additional world-class skiing. Pinecond Mountain Cabin is very close to many of the 14'ers which so many people come to Colorado to climb. Whether you are a climber or casual hiker, the area has beautiful trails to enjoy right from the property. If you are not into hiking, there are always horses to ride, white-water to conquer on a raft, snow shoe trails, cross country skiing, and many many other activities to challenge each and every person. If you are just into beautiful drives, there are many that we can recommend with old mines and pioneer towns to explore. There is fabulous outlet mall shopping in nearby Silverthorne where you can shop and pick up any supplies and clothing that you need for your adventures. It is just an awesome are to stay. You will never be bored but you can choose to just sit and relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery and wildlife. There is no hustle and bustle and absolutely NO traffic and traffic noise. The only sounds you will hear are from wildlife and the laughter you will hear from your happy family. Enjoy!!

Beyond Awesome

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is absolutely awesome. Susan has forgotten nothing in the cabin as far as amenities. If you need in the kitchen it's there, if you need it in the bathroom it's there, and if you need it in the bedroom it's there. The pictures on the website don't even do the cabin justice. We absolutely love the cabin the view out of every window, and just the peace and quiet in beauty of the woods around the cabin. Before you go to Prathers for groceries, which is a store down in Fairplay about 15 minutes from the cabin, be sure to check the refrigerator, the cabinets, and the pantry. Most visitors to the cabin have left behind sugar, flour, canned goods, spices, and coffee, etc. So before you spend money on anything at the grocery store, check the cabin first. I can't say enough about what a phenomenal cabin this truly is. It is absolutely a diamond in the rough in that area. If you reserve this cabin and spend a few days here you will never regret it. We will definitely be back again. And by the way, the Internet connection in the cabin is absolutely perfect.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much John. It was a pleasure to have your group. I am so glad you had a good time and liked Pinecone Mountain. The homeowner is wonderful and always makes changes to his home to make it better and better for renters.. I hope you can come back soon. Summer is wonderful in the Rockies. It never gets over 75 and you still need a coat at night. Regards, Susan

Private, peaceful location for family fun

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 stayed here for the week of July 12th, for our first visit to amazing Colorado. We were pleased that this cabin is as beautiful as pictured and even roomier in person. Also, it's great that it comes so well equipped from the start with shampoo/soap etc. in the bathrooms, extra toilet paper/paper towels, etc. That's really a nice thoughtful touch! We enjoyed one evening by the fire pit (the guests before us did not leave water in the buckets by the fire pit as instructed but the guys in our group made sure to refill the buckets prior to our departure, for the next guests), using the grill and the wonderful hot tub. There was always plenty of hot water for cooking, showers, and washing clothes and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare several meals. We never ended up using the wood stove but it looks lovely for colder nights. The beds are all comfortable and after some of us got past the initial insomnia associated with altitude sickness, slept very soundly. Sadly, we never ended up seeing any bear or moose, but did enjoy feeding the various birds and chipmunks around the property. The starry nights by the campfire or on the deck were AMAZING. Nothing but peace and quiet, though we did meet a couple of neighbors on morning walks and they are friendly. The location is great - not far from town but definitely set back into the scenic woods/up the mountain a bit. We are very glad that we well prepared for this major road trip by renting a 4-wheel-drive vehicle since we knew that we would be driving on unpaved mountain roads, not only here near the house, but in other areas of Colorado as well. That, along with husband's expert driving, made the parking at the house (and driving up mountains) look easy though he did back down into the drive each time in order to get out easily (it's quite an incline). We all fell in love with both Alma and Fairplay - friendly, laid-back people and some cute shops and restaurants (we enjoyed McCall's in Fairplay). Stopped at High Paw Pet Supplies in Fairplay to buy some souvenirs (treats and toys) for our cats back home in Illinois and met Andre the Giant Cat and had a little mini tour of their rescue facility (great people!). Shopped regularly at Prather's Market in Fairplay and Al-Mart. We really enjoyed an adventurous drive up to Kite Lake. Loved Montogomery Reservoir, Breckenridge, Sand Dunes Nat. Park, Garden of the Gods... Nice to have had this beautiful house as our home base while in CO. : )

Great family getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family had a blast for a week long vacation. We went down the street to Mosquito pass and drove up the 4 wheel path. My teen age boys loved the hot tub and the fire pit! We would love to come back next summer!

Amazing serene mountain getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is absolutely amazing! My girlfriend and I were looking to escape for a weekend and decided to book Pinecone Mountain Cabin. We couldn't be happier with our decision, the cabin in cozy, well decorated, and incredibly clean! We arrived when the weather was about 50 degrees and sunny. After getting situated we decided to explore the property where there was plenty of animal life and birds to observe. There is a fox that we ran into a few times, really cool! For dinner we headed into downtown Alma and grabbed some local food at the South Park Saloon, great pizza! That evening as the temperature dropped we took to the relaxing hot tub and enjoyed the peace and quiet of mountain life.

We woke up on day 2 to 5 inches of fresh snow and much colder temperatures. We sat down by the wood burning fire place with a cup of coffee and enjoyed the great views from inside the cabin, there are plenty of windows throughout the 3 floors. During the rest of the day we played ping pong in the lower level, enjoyed the game table upstairs and went in the hot tub once again as the snow fell around us. What a perfect cabin, we will be going back this summer without a doubt. You can tell the owners really care for this property, best I've been to in the Rockies!

In the summer you will be in the center of all activities including old mine ruins, Montgomery Reservoir, Mt. Lincoln, Mt. Bross, Mt. Quandry and many more. Fairplay (just 10 miles away) is the activity center of the Colorado Rocky Mountains and is often referred to as the Base Camp for all activities some of which include hiking, mountain climbing, horseback riding, ice climbing, fishing, hunting, rafting, 4-wheeling, ATVing, mine exploring, canoeing, kayaking, and much much more. Alma is only 5 minutes away and offers dining, shopping, and entrances to some of the most beautiful drives in Colorado such as Kite Lake, Bristlecone Pines, and Mosquito Pass, and the trailheads to many of the famous fourteeners. Summer ATVing in this area is fabulous. You will be near trails that lead all the way to Leadville with lots of old mines to explore. If you can think of an outdoor activity, you will probably find it within 10-20 minutes of the cabin. It is a great home to call your 'Base Camp'. This is a beautiful home to spend any season of the year. The access is easy and 4-wheel drive is not required in the summer.
