Valley of the Sun House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrm/3 Bath Custom Vacation Cabin Near Breck & Fairplay

Robin's Nest is a gorgeous 4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom custom vacation home located in a secluded area of Valley of the Sun. The home sits on a heavily wooded property with gorgeous mountain views. Robin's Nest is truly at the top of the mountain with views that extend for miles and miles.

If you love the outdoors, you may enjoy many activities without having to go too far...grab the snow shoes or your cross-country skiis and take a walk in the woods behind the house; hike the Pike National Forest right from the back yard; go fly-fishing in many of the lakes and streams nearby (Fairplay is known as the 'Fly-Fishing Capital of Colorado'); or access world-class ski slopes in Breckenridge just a 25 mile drive away.

On the main level of the home is the spacious great room. It has two-story windows that let in lots of light and frame the beautiful views of the mountains to the SE. It has seating for several people with two couches. The kitchen is located just off of the great room and is beautifully appointed with new appliances and lots of counter space. It has every amenity you will need for your stay. The dining area has a big table that seats 6-8 adults. It is also a great place to get together for a game of cards or to put together a jig-saw puzzle. Also on the main level are two bedrooms, both with queen beds, and a full bath.

Upstairs, there is a master loft with a queen size Select Comfort bed, a large walk-in closet, and a private bath with huge walk-in shower. There is lots of room and great views of the mountains from the two story windows.

Downstairs, the windows line the entire length of the room and provide great views of the mountains. There is outdoor access from this level, where you may step outside with the snow shoes for a walk in the woods, or come in from a long day of skiing and rest your skiis or snowboard on the rack in this room. There is a huge game room with a foosball table, puzzles and games, two couches, and a TV with DVD and Play Station. Satellite TV is provided. Also on this level is a full bath and a fourth bedroom that has two twin beds. There is a full size futon bed in the game room for additional guests.

Outside on the deck, there is a gas grill for barbecuing and a patio set where you can sit and enjoy a cup of coffee while taking in the views or watching for moose. There is a family of 5 moose that frequent the area and have been spotted by many families.

About Shelley White-Corey

Steve and I live in Texas. We have six children and seven grandchildren (so far). Our kids and grand kids are spread from coast to coast, and several places in between!

Shelley White-Corey purchased this house in 2012

Why Shelley White-Corey chose Fairplay

Since our family is spread all over the country, we wanted a place in a serene location where we could congregate and enjoy each other's company. We chose Fairplay, Colorado for its beautiful mountains, proximity to Breckenridge and central U.S. location.

What makes this house unique

If you want to be close to skiing and numerous other activities, yet at the same time really 'get away', you will appreciate this home as we do!

Absolutely breathtaking.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect getaway. Quite peaceful and very comfortable. The ground level entertainment room has a remarkable surround sound system and had a blast playing fossball while playing our favorite songs. Wildlife is abundant and can be viewed from the main floor wraparound terrace. Great grill. Best wood burning fireplace. Amazing fully equipped kitchen. Plenty of paper towels and toilet paper. Plenty of bedding as well. It even has a pack and play for the grand kids! Master bedroom situated in the third level loft has amazing views. We would recommend Robin's Nest and would return at any given opportunity.

Thank you for sharing this amazing vacation home. We enjoyed everything about it.

Wonderful getaway in the clouds

  • 5 of 5

It's not often a person wakes up above the clouds, but with this cabin's position, and the valley below, that's exactly what happened. We enjoyed a few hours sitting on the deck drinking our coffee while enjoying the scenery. Finally the sun burned the clouds away to reveal the distant valleys below. The cabin is as advertised if not better. There was plenty of room for the six of us to move around inside the cabin and the outside deck that wraps around a corner of the cabin is plenty big for a nice barbecue party. The kitchen is more than adequate to prepare meals if you wish to eat in. The towns of Fairplay and Alma are both fun to visit and each offers several choices for dining or shopping. The folks in the area were all very friendly.

If you want a truly secluded getaway for a few days or a few weeks this place won't disappoint.

Great place! Clean, comfortable and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time, with ten of us! The home was excellent for our purpose and we enjoyed every minute. The wildlife was a huge plus as we were able to observe large moose on several occasions. We will definitely keep this place in mind for future outings.

Beautiful scenery

  • 5 of 5

Robin's Nest was a perfect getaway for our family. It slept 6 of us comfortable with even an extra bedroom and beds to spare. It was very clean and updated. Everything was in proper working order (except could not get the playstation to work, which was not a big deal for us). The check in and check out instructions were simple and easy to accomplish. I would say the road leading up to the cabin is rather long and bumpy but its worth it!! We did most of our summer activities outside of Fairplay- Breckenride, Hoosier pass, hiking, and Vail- but the cabin was centrally located to allow us to travel to all the places for the day and return to the cabin for the afternoon and evening. The kitchen was well stocked with all the plates, utensils, and cook ware I needed. We would love to return to the cabin during winter time too!

Fairplay/Alma is the activity center of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Activities closeby include: skiing, snowboarding, hiking, mountain climbing, snow-shoeing, horseback riding (winter too), ice climbing, fishing, hunting, rafting, snow-mobiling, 4-wheeling, ATVing, mine exploring, canoeing, kayaking, and much much more. If you can think of an outdoor activity, you will probably find it within 10-30 minutes of the cabin. It is a great place to call 'Base Camp'. You can find all of these activities within minutes of the home:

**FISHING ... Gold Medal/Blue Ribbon Fishing--5 area lakes and public river a short drive away

**National Forest/Montgomery Reservoir; Lincoln Falls; ice climbing; skiing; snowboarding; and some of the best snow-shoeing and 4-wheeling in Colorado within minutes of home.

**Fairplay (15 min S): Historic Mining Town, fly-fishing, panning for gold.

**Breckenridge (45 min N): skiing, snow-boarding, snowmobiling, fishing, boating, golfing.

**Jefferson Lake (60 min NE): trout fishing, walking.

**Buena Vista (60 min S): Hot Springs, fishing, raft the Arkansas River.

**Salida (90 min S): fishing, hiking, jeep trails, rafting.

**Como (30 min NE): Historic Railroad District.

**Cripple Creek (1 hr 45 min SE): gold mining, gambling.

**Leadville (1 hr 45 min S, then N): mountain climbing, antiquing, ghost town.

**Manitou Springs (1 hr 50 min SE): Cave of the Winds, Pikes Peak.

This home is beautiful all seasons of the year. The views are amazing because it's at 11,000 feet! Please note that this altitude can affect some people, causing symptoms of lightheadedness, headache, and nausea. It is important to push fluids, and avoid caffeine and alcohol. Some folks may want to consult their doctor about anti-altitude sickness medication.

The cabin is about 7 miles from the main road and the drive up to the cabin is over a hard-packed gravel road. Sometimes it can be pretty rough, therefore 4-wheel drive is recommended at all times, and essential in the winter months. While the road is kept well-plowed, conditions during the winter can be icy.
