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.

About The Stones

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.

The Stones purchased this house in 2010

Why The Stones chose Fairplay

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Gorgeous View, Great Memories

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 rang in 2017 at this beautiful cabin. Our 4 year old son saw snow for the first time and our 7 year old daughter was able to build her first snowman. We used the sled in the private back yard and had snowball fights and made snow angels...these are all big deals for us Texans! We couldn't have had as much fun in a town setting, that's for sure.

We hardly left except to go out shopping one day in Breck (the drive is gorgeous!) and for dinner at Millonzis in Fairplay for NYE.

There are lots of board games available, a warm fire, a great kitchen and lots of DVDs to choose from if you'd like to get some screen time while you stay out of the cold...or you can rent one from Alma's infamous Al-Mart if you go to get some extra snacks or other necessities!

Denise was always available via text when we had questions before and during our trip, which was very helpful. I want to mention that the cabin was spotless too. These are top notch accommodations!

All in all this was the perfect way to spend some time away from it all. We couldn't have picked a better setting than the Stone Cabin and we hope to make a follow-up trip!

A fantastic experience!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was in great condition. It felt like a newly constructed cabin, extremely clean with brand new furniture and appliances. All of the rooms were very comfortable and spacey. The decorations were very classy and with the fire place, the whole cabin had a warm and cozy feeling. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed for those days we decided to dine in. It is essential to have a 4x4 or AWD vehicle, especially in winter. The directions to cabin was great and we had no problems finding it. One caution to future winter guests - when driving on snow covered roads you should try to stay on the center of the road and avoid going into snow covered ditches on the side of the roads that are hidden under the snow. We had a memorable experience getting stuck in snow on our first day but with the help from friendly locals we managed to deal with it quickly. Drive from the cabin to Breckenridge was enjoyable with great views (30-45 minutes drive based on road conditions). Overall, we highly recommend this property.

We loved our stay in this beautiful modern home. Everything was true to the description. The kitchen was fantastic, everything was comfortable and easy to find, and the views were spectacular. The Stones were super helpful with great directions and provided us with a lovely stay. There were great local hikes nearby and it was super relaxing. Would definitely stay there again!

Ideal home for a serene mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five settled in here for three weeks in June. It was just the right size, well appointed and maintained with next to perfect amenities. Our favorite was the large deck overlooking the forest along with incredible sights of the mountains. The road from Route 14 was bumpy but worth it. The access to fishing, hiking, rafting, shopping and dining in FairPlay, Alma, Buena Vista, Salida and Breck was so easy and kept us busy every day. Colorado and this specific area are a national treasure and this cabin make it possible to explore it with great comfort. Thank you to the owners for such a great job taking care of the home and property and sharing it with the VRBO community!

beautiful drive to property. private and scenic

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was exactly as depicted in the pictures. I was adamant on having mountain views and due to the privacy of the trees surrounding the property, that was my only initial concern. However, the mountain views were undersold. The views were breathtaking and the privacy was appreciated.

If you're looking for "the still" of peace and serenity, this is it. The drive into/from Breck took about 35-40 minutes with the snow-covered roads but it's a drive that you won't mind at all. It's absolutely gorgeous.

As for the cabin itself, it was cozy, clean, and very modern. The woodwork was all handcrafted. The wifi worked for internet and email and I was even able to get a signal for outbound calls in certain areas of the house. There were games and dvds for the kids, even sleds and snow gear for those who needed it .
