About the Property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5

This home has everything you need for a wonderful escape from everyday life. There are two bedrooms and one bathroom in this cozy top level house. There is a basement, but it is not yet finished (perfect for tossing skis and boots without worrying about the wood floors).

One bedroom has a bunk bed that sleeps 3 (full/twin bunk) and the master bedroom has a full size bed. This home is immaculately clean and we provide all the fundamentals needed to cook and enjoy. Modern appliances, TV with DVDs (no cable) and satellite internet. Internet is via satellite and is fast enough for browsing internet, checking email and messaging. It does not support video streaming, or FaceTime.

The large balcony overlooks two colorado 14'ers and the heavily treed lot (apps 1.5 acre lot). You will enjoy complete privacy.

Just in case someone is sensitive to altitude, the home is equipped an oxygen condenser (in the off chance you need a little more O2).

The drive to Breckenridge is about 25 miles. There are restaurants in FairPlay (about a 10 minute drive). Note, the location on the map is not precise, so we would provide the exact directions. We have enjoyed this home for a few years now (first owners) and are confident you will too.


You must have a 4-wheel (or all wheel) drive vehicle in the winter and spring months. The summer we recommend at least an all-wheel drive. The cabin is remote and can be tricky to find in the dark. Recommend getting there in the daylight. The stars are amazing at night when the sky are clear.

This cabin has central heating but no air conditioner. The temperatures drop to around 40 degrees at night in the summer and that keeps the cabin nice and cool.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Refundable Damage Deposit $225
  • Cleaning Fee $150

Notes:

DAMAGE/RESERVATION DEPOSIT- A damage/reservation deposit of $225 is required. This must be received upon booking the reservation. The deposit automatically converts to a security/damage deposit upon arrival. The deposit is NOT applied toward rent; however, it is fully refundable within (14) days of departure, provided the following provisions are met.

a. A $25 fine will be charged for missing remotes, and DVDs.

b. A $225 fine will be charged if there is evidence of pets on the premises.

c. A $225 fine will be charged if there is evidence of smoking on the premises.

d. A $50 fine will be charged for unreasonable maintenance requests and excessive trash left on premises.

e. A $75 fine will be charged if you lose your keys or are locked out and require a visit from our housekeeper or a locksmith.

f. A $50 fine will be charged if you do not have proper tires on your vehicle (ie. city tires) and require additional plowing services that are beyond typical for the area. We have a plow that maintains the driveway to allow a properly equipped vehicle to enter and exit without issues. 4-wheel drive and snow/all-terain tires in good condition are highly advised. At times, the grater may push snow into the entry of the driveway blocking it. Parking on the street until a plow is able to arrive is advised.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are super adventurous and love to cook. As you will see, we keep the place immaculate and have purchased some very nice things over the last several years. We know you will appreciate the atmosphere this home brings.

Why the Owner Chose Valley of the Sun (Fairplay, CO, USA):
This place is about 25 miles from Breckenridge. The drive is not too bad but you will want a 4 wheel or all wheel drive vehicle in the winter. The reason this place is special is because of the location in a historic town with tons of culture. On your drive in to Breckenridge, you will pass through Alma where you can stop for a bagel and cup of coffee. Don't miss out on Al-Mart which is a great experience. Going over Hoiser pass allows you to have some of the most spectacular views ever! In the summer, we love to take the kids gold panning and hiking. The surrounding area is rich with wild life such as moose and elk. Fly fishing and fresh water fishing is just a short hike down the road or a short drive to the reservoir which is super pristine. Catch some fish and bring it back to cook! The house is two stories with a walk in basement. The basement is not finished so its a perfect place to leave boots and gear.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is small and cozy. There are snow shoes, gold pans, and fishing rods for you to use. There are excellent restaurants (one of our favorites - Millonzis) just down in FairPlay.
