Guests are sure to enjoy the stunning views, peace and quiet, and warm feel of this fully furnished, 2 bedroom/ 1 bath property. The property can comfortably accommodate 8 with 1 bedroom, a separate guest cottage (no bathroom in the guest cottage!) and two lofts with beds. The cabin is surrounded by trees, within 5 minutes walk to climbable rock formations, across the road from hundreds more acres of woods and fields to explore, and close to world-class fishing and hiking trails (kid-friendly walks, lazy pass hikes, and 14,000 foot mountains). Twenty minutes to quaint and historic Fairplay, 45 minutes to Breckenridge, 1 hour to Mt. Princeton Hot Springs. Enjoy a day of activities and come back to watch the sunset with a glass of wine. (The kitchen is range only. No oven.)
Please note: the cabin is discounted for winter because the snow presents some challenges. The driveway is about 400 feet long and very steep. Even when plowed, many 4wd vehicles cannot reach the top. This means parking at the bottom of the driveway and hauling your stuff to the top (in the snow, at high altitude). The cabin is a beautiful, cozy, and rugged winter mountain experience. There are photos of the driveway in the snow to give travelers a sense of the distance. In one photo you can see the view down the switch backs of the driveway and in the distance is my husband (hiking up with our stuff). On the upside, driveway makes for some great sledding.

Snow generally melts by April, and from then on, the driveway is accessible to all vehicles including 2wd.
We have two small children and we use our cabin all winter, so it can be done and it's worth it!
