About the Property
Gorgeous 3 Bedroom/ 2 Bath Home with Fishing Nearby
River Run is a three bedroom home with 2 full bathrooms. The master suite has a king size bed with a comfy fluffy duvet. There is a sliding door opening onto the front patio with gorgeous views. The private bath has a double vanity, an oversized tub and a walk-in shower. A personal coffee pot with mugs is provided for your personal enjoyment. The second bedroom has an oversized queen sleigh bed. It too has a sliding door opening onto the front deck with the same amazing views. The bathroom across the hall is a full bath with a shower/tub combo. The third bedroom has a full size futon bed, a comfy recliner to relax in and a private flat screen TV. All of the bedrooms have their own flat screen television and the third bedroom has a DVD player (there is a Blue Ray DVD in the living room). There is also a pull out sofa bed in the living room that is full size. It has been tried out and deemed very comfortable. Satellite Programming is provided as well as wireless internet access. All of the bedrooms have linens and towels and the beds will be made upon your arrival.
The living room is a large open room with a gas fireplace and a big flat screen TV. There are two sofas with lots of comfortable seating for your entire group. The entire wall is windows with panoramic views. You will just want to sit and enjoy the views! Lots of books and videos are provided for your enjoyment. There is a Blue Ray DVD player to watch your favorite movies. The home has a full size kitchen with everything you will need to cook your favorite meals. It is open to the large dining area and the living room so your can chat with your friends and family while enjoying cooking. The dining table seats 8 people. All necessary cooking utensils and dishes are provided. There is a laundry room with a full size washer and dryer.
The home has 2 separate decks and both of them have panoramic views. The front deck facing the continental divide has lots of comfortable seating and lounge chairs. There is even a chiminera to warm up on the chilly evenings. The back deck faces the mountains to the East and has a large outdoor dining table that seats 6. It has an umbrella to shade you from the sun. A great gas grill is provided to cook your favorite steaks and hamburgers. You will have a hard time deciding which deck to sit on. The both offer very different and beautiful views. The expansive property is very quiet and secluded.
The home is pet friendly and a kennel is provided for guest use that is appropriate for a dog up to 60 lbs. There is also a stake out and chain for your pet if you would like to use it. We do not recommend leaving them alone outside though as there are wild animals that can attack a pet.
The home is surrounded by pine and spruce trees. There are several walking trails right on the property which offer different views. It is fabulous place for kids to explore and very safe. There can be wild animals though so keep an eye on them. You won't even have to venture from the property to have a true outdoor experience.
The area has so much to offer in the way of activities. In the summer, there is horseback riding right across the highway at the Platte Ranch. They have 2 hour rides, half day rides, and dinner rides. It is a great place for the family to go and ride through the forest and mountain meadows. They give you a true old West experience. There is fishing very near the home on the Platte River. We can give you instructions on how to access the various fishing areas. Some are BLM Land and some are parks very near the home. This fishing is right on the Platte River which has gold medal fishing. There are also several lakes very near the home such as Antero, Spinney, and Eleven mile. Hiking trails are all around in the Pike National Forest. Many of the famous 14'ers are in this area like Mt. Sherman, Mt. Lincoln, Mt. Bross, Mt. Democrat, and the Buffalo Peaks. If you like ATVing, bring them along and there are many many areas to ride in like Breakneck and Browns Pass and 4-Mile ATV park. If you like outlet shopping, Silverthorne is only a short drive and has great shops. Just call us and we can point you toward the nearest ghost town or hiking trail. Be sure to visit the restored 1800's mining town of South Park which is right in Fairplay. It is truly a must see!
If you are fortunate enough to come in the winter, there is world class skiing and boarding at Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, and A-Basin. They are a short 40 minutes drive from the home. Breckenridge has fabulous shopping and restaurants too. They also have ice skating and sledding too. (the driveway at the home is a great sledding spot too).
The home has a $125 cleaning fee and a $45 admin fee. We do not collect security deposits but we do have a credit card on file for damages or missing items.
