About Lisa

We love the mountains and wanted a getaway that makes you feel like you are outside and somewhere special.

Lisa purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Lisa chose Fairplay

The views and quality of this home make you feel like you are on vacation as soon as you arrive. You can enjoy them from inside or from the hot tub outside.

What makes this cabin unique

The views are just spectacular and the house is so open.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for opening up your beautiful home to us. Our favorite part was getting up early to watch the sunrise while laying in bed...then drawing curtains to sleep in a little more. What a breathtaking view.

The cabin is amazing!! Was the perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed Lisa's cabin!! The views are amazing!! The new hot tub was a perfect way to unwind after busy days of visiting the nearby towns. It is very private. When we arrived the road had not been plowed yet but was taken care of within 30 mins of arrival, after that point I don't think there was anyone else on the road except for us the entire stay.

There are plenty of activities within a short drive.

I would absolutely recommend Lisa's cabin to anyone wanting a quiet getaway.

Awesome view!!!!

This was an amazing weekend. The house was super nice and clean. And the directions to the house were really good and necessary ... it is a little bit off the main road.

Secluded Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Phew! I needed a break from the stresses of everyday life, and this cabin provided exactly that. Nestled in the remote mountains above Fairplay, and Alma this cabin has incredible views of the landscape, magnificent sunrise views, and star filled nights. The cabin has an old iron wood burning stove inside which I found to be in great working condition and a real throwback to times lost. We enjoyed hikes in the area, and this cabin gives you great access to local hiking, fishing, and even Breckenridge, which is only about a 30 minute drive.

Great experience with Lisa, she even called us, and was available for assistance when we needed it.

I would definitely rent the cabin again. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.

Very nice house with beautiful view.

  • 4 of 5

The house is in a great location for a mountain getaway. The views from the deck are great all day, especially at sun rise and sun set. Breckinridge is 40 minutes from the house, it does take ~10-15 minutes to get down to CR9. It is a very easy drive over Hoosier Pass, where there are trails. The only reason this review wasn't 5 star was because of not much to do in Fairplay and Alma. Overall a great short getaway in the mountains.

Quiet, clean, with gorgeous views.

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 5 of my buddies had a 5 night vacation here. We loved every minute. The views were impeccable. The cabin was perfect for what we needed. If you hike about 30 min west (directly behind the cabin) the views are even greater! I will say the trek up the mountain can be hazardous. We did experience 2 flat tires while we were there. Being cautious didn't seem to help us. Be careful going up and down! The town of Fairplay was great! The landlord was very easy to deal with and provided us with all the information we needed. We will definitely be coming back in the future.

This place was more than I imagined. We had a great time and truly enjoyed this property. Would recommend this place to anyone that wants to experience Colorado up in the mountains.
