About Brenna

We purchased this home right before our daughter was born. We love it, but don't up to use it as much as we'd like (mostly because Daddy is a hockey coach which takes up most weekends!). We now have a daughter and a son, as well as a 4 year old black lab (who loves the backyard dog run).

Brenna purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Brenna chose South Central

We bought this home because it was only 20 minutes away from the skiing and other activities of Breckenridge, but offered a great piece of property. The home is on an acre of land, most of which is covered in beautiful aspen trees. It is also easy for us to get to- being just off highway 9, between Fairplay and Breckenridge (just south of Hoosier Pass). It is a cozy two bedroom log cabin with a great gas fireplace and a jetted tub. We love coming up to the house on weekends to just get away.

The house is close to the South Platte River (walking distance) as well as bike trails. We are an 'outdoorsy' family, and this home was the perfect match for us!

What makes this cabin unique

The views of the mountains surrounding our house sold us on this property. The two bedroom, two bath home is perfect for our family of four.

We loved the idea of sitting around the gas fireplace playing board games, and the two-person jetted tub is just great!

It was an absolute bonus for us that there is a detached garage. It's great for parking the car on a cold (snowy) day, as well as storing all our outdoor gear.

Not as clean as one would expect a rental property to be.

  • 3 of 5

The owners need to find a better housekeeper. The jetted tub was filthy with hair and other funk that I didn't bother investigating any further. The grill was unusable until I spent over an hour just leaving it on high to burn all of the grease out. I was also forced to fix the disposal in the sink because of the smell. The coffee maker worked only after I ran vinegar through it 5 or 6 times. It did have a nice fenced back yard for the dogs. The place seemed a little overpriced. Other that that it was just OK, nothing fancy.

Owner's Response: Hi John, Sorry to hear the cabin was as clean as expected/necessary. I'll chat with our housekeeper to be sure she's more thorough. I'll head into town today to buy a new coffee maker and grill cleaning tools today, as well. Thank you for the feedback, we'll be sure to tackle the issues asap. -Brenna

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 4 of 5

The house is great and in a nice location. The water pressure was our only complaint. We were not able to take showers because the water pressure was so low and hardly any hot water. Everything else was fine.

We had a great weekend. Beautiful views! Cabin is nestled amid the aspens. This was a perfect weekend to see the fall colors.

Cabin is secluded yet it's an easy drive into Alma, Fairplay & Breck. Cozy & clean. The enclosed yard was great for my dogs. Would love to stay again!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter,husband, and I enjoyed our time at Aspen Grove. Brenna was helpful and responded quickly to any question we had regarding our stay.The cabin was very clean and comfortable. The location was quiet and relaxing. Exploring during the day then returning to our cozy cabin in the golden aspens in the evening made this a relaxing and memorable vacation.

Located a short 20 minute drive from the magnificent ski resort of Breckenridge, and 40 minutes to Keystone, the town of Alma is a quiet town just south of Hoosier Pass. It is the perfect place to visit in the winter for skiing/snowboarding, sledding and/or skating. In the spring, summer and fall, it is a great spot for hiking, biking, fishing and site seeing.
