Beautiful Mountain Home, 6 private acres with pond
average rating of 4.4 based on 5 reviews

Comfortable, well maintained home.

  • 4 of 5

Secluded spot for a mountain visit for kids and dogs. Home well maintained and comfortable. Spacious and comfortable bedrooms. Unfortunately we were there during a very windy time and could not enjoy the outdoor activities as much as planned. Could use some additional pans for cooking meals but otherwise well stocked kitchen.

Simple Mountain Retreat

  • 4 of 5

The views from this place are beautiful! It definitely feels remote! It was about a 35 minute drive to Breckenridge. Not having WiFi was a blessing and a curse! :) We enjoyed our stay and loved the amount of space for our dog to run. The beds were comfortable and the cabin was clean, however, the cleaning and pet fees were high considering we were responsible for stripping the beds, emptying all garbage bins, cleaning the kitchen and putting away all of the clean dishes before departure. (Be sure to wash the dishes before you use them - many were not actually clean from the previous tenants.) Overall a great weekend getaway!

Good location - lots of space

  • 4 of 5

The pictures are accurate. The property company was easy to deal with. We were able to get an early check in which helped us out.

The location was good for us. Easy access to 4WD and hiking trails. We've stayed in Breckenridge in the past and this location is more convenient to the trails off Route 9.

The property was clean and the kitchen/dining/living room was spacious and comfortably set up. The heating system was good and kept us warm even though the outside temps were pretty cool - generally in the 40s 50s and windy. We didn't spend much time outside. The kitchen had plenty of dishes and good pots and pans for cooking. The washer and dryer worked well and soap is provided which was handy.

The outside yard is spacious and we had room to throw the ball for our dog. However, the neighbor dog is friendly and will probably want to join in - at least he did with us.

The water softener takes some getting used to and you will need to bring some of your own supplies like paper towels, bath soap, and so on. Also the lighting in the bathrooms can be pretty jarring at night.

Review of mountain home near Fairplay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at the gorgeous home located between Fairplay and Alma!! Not one complaint. The owners were easy to work with, although, make sure to get your rental agreement in asap or they will rent it out to someone else even if you have spoken personally with them (if someone else gets their agreement in sooner).

The house had plenty of space, was clean, and provided all the amenities we needed for a summer weekend getaway. Definitely worth the cost and drive out there!
