About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 10-12)

This gorgeous custom log home completed construction as of January 1, 2013. The beautiful slate floors, high vaulted ceilings, large windows, and state-of-the-art kitchen are just some of the high quality features. The great room has two-story windows to gaze at the white-capped mountains, stars, and beautiful views. The open concept of the great room, kitchen, dining area, and breakfast counter with a big screen LCD TV/DVD player makes this an ideal area for entertaining. Keep your car inside the attached 2-car garage for easy access in and out of the cabin. The home is tastefully decorated with Southwest décor, log accents and a pellet stove for warmth after that long day of skiing. The cabin is situated on the sunny side of Glacier Ridge so that you have views from every window in the home. The large wrap-around deck affords views of Colorado’s well known Fourteeners Lincoln, Bross and Democrat amongst the beautiful aspen, pine and massive blue sky of San Isabel National Forest. The Master Bedroom has a private balcony, queen bed and dressers, luxurious bath with rain shower head and big screen TV. Attached is the master loft with full length windows, couch with queen bed, sitting chairs, tables, desk, and telescope to view the crystal clear starry nights and mountain range. The main floor bedroom has a queen bed, dresser, and windows admiring the views both west and east. The third bedroom located on the lower level has a bunk bed with a Full Size top & bottom mattress and is a great set-up for kids! All of the rooms are tastefully decorated with plenty of room and comfort for the entire family including the dog. The game room features a foos-ball table, bumper pool table and comfortable black leather sectional couch for an evening of fun. The roads are county maintained but 4-wheel drive is highly recommended due to the weather conditions in this area. If you enjoy ATVing or snowmobiling, rentals and information are available from Fairplay to Breckenridge. Interested in snow skiing or snowshoeing? You can be on the slopes of Breckenridge Resort within 20 minutes or for a full day of skiing into the night, head on over to Keystone Resort. Copper Mountain and Vail Resorts are also another option that is easily accessible. There are several world-class fishing areas including Antero Reservoir, Spinney Reservoir, Eleven Mile Reservoir, and the Platte River. Thanks to our central location, you can take advantage of Colorado’s great outdoor activities, year round.

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with great mountain views! We enjoyed our 5 nights & wished we'd reserved the whole week. Guys enjoyed fly fishing in area. We visited Buena Vista, which was half hour away & Breckenridge, half hour in another direction. When grandkids arrived for weekend, we visited St Elmo ghost town & they had such fun feeding chipmunks & baby deer. Was fun hanging out & riding bikes on the nearby trail. Would definitely consider returning to this location.

Beautiful House, But.....

  • 4 of 5

The house was very nice and spacious. Super clean except for a little dog hair here and there. Not really an issue. We were slightly disappointed that the property is not really "in the woods." It is on some cleared land towards the front of the sub-division. The worst part was the heavy equipment noise from a nearby gravel mine a couple hundred yards away.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Our Listing states that our property has "Mountain Views" and is located on "3 Sunny Acres" never do we state "in the woods" as you stated in your review. A few of our previous guests have expressed that they love our sunny location compared to being in the shaded woods at 10,361+ elevation, which is definitely cooler. The Hector Mine is a mile away and you are the first and only one to comment on it. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed our cabin and hope that the fishing went well.
