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.

Very nice cabin!
Nice location for off roading adventures and climbing 14ers.
All three bathrooms are very nice and with 7 of us we used all three of them. We cooked at the cabin most meals and the kitchen is nicely equipped, the gas grill cooks well, and the dish washer is quiet.
The mattress on the main level queen bed needs upgrading - sags to the middle. With 7 the eating area was crowded. The decks are enjoyable.
We had a wonderful stay.
Thank you for your review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and would like to address your feedback.
The mattress in the master bedroom is new (bought a year ago) and is top of the line from a major mattress store. As a frequent traveler myself (every weekend for 6 months, nationally/internationally) I know that beds vary for each person.
The dining room table seats 6 with an additional bar for (3) next to the table. There is an extension to the table on the main room floor and portable TV tables are located next to the dining room table to expand into the family room.
Unfortunately, the master bedroom towel rack was busted off the wall and the bedding and towels were not in the laundry room as stated in our contract agreement (pictures/dates can be provided). You were refunded your entire deposit of $350, which we more than generous on our behalf.
Again, we appreciate your feedback and wish you the best for future VRBO request.
Beautiful and perfect in every way. Gives a true feeling of mountain living. Has everything you could ever need and is perfectly located. Perfect for families, individuals, or couples. Life changing experience, you will never want to leave!
Beautiful house close to Breckenridge
Beautiful house close to Breckenridge, we had a wonderful relaxing time.
Thank you for your review and for taking such good care of our Mountain Home! We can't thank you enough and would like to invite you back anytime!! Best wishes for a healthy & happy 2018! Marc and Tami
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.
We appreciate your review and love hearing about your wonderful adventures. It's so nice to be centrally located so that you can get to fun destination spots without a long, long drive. That's what we love about it. We look forward to having you again!
Beautiful House, But.....
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.
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.
Beautiful mountain home, well appointed and comfortable. Close to tons of alpine fun.
Beautiful mountain home with all the amenities you could want. Minutes from fishing, hiking and exploring. Family and dogs had a great alpine vacation.
Thank you Greg for the review. Happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed our Mountain Paradise.
