A Wonderful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent ten wonderful days in this fabulous home. The description is everything it says and more. Every detail of the travelers stay has been thoughtfully attended to. Whether sitting in front of the fireplace or reading a good book in one of the cozy outdoor spaces, this home has it all. If you are looking for relaxation, peace and quiet, this is the place. The home sits on top of the ridge with views from the front and back. The home is kept meticulously and is very

comfortable. It is a perfect home away from home.

Perfect getaway with family!

  • 5 of 5

I had family visiting from Indiana and I wanted to give them a mountain getaway experience. This house was perfect! It was well kept, clean, and had all the supplies we needed. The views were incredible in all directions. We road horses there in fairplay, checked out the south park brewery, and even took a trip into Buena Vista for hot springs. Wonderful vacation all around! I would definitely stay here again!

Great Weekend Away!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time away for a girls weekend. The perfect driving distance from Denver with beautiful views of the fall colors. The house has amazing 360 degree panoramic views. Lots of room to hang out in the kitchen, living room, the decks and all over the property. We were able to take a quick drive to hike and spend a couple of hours at the hot springs. Added bonus; we had a local masseuse come to the house and each had hour massages!! Great views, clean, spacious and accessible to lots of local attractions. Can't wait to go back!

Excellent Girls Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for a girls getaway weekend! It's a beautiful and comfortable cabin with breathtaking views. There was tons of seating both inside and outside to relax and admire the views. The house was extremely clean and it had great space to cook in the kitchen. There are also plenty of activities within a short driving distance away (e.g., Breckenridge, Buena Vista, Salida). We hope to be back soon!

Relaxing girls getaway

  • 5 of 5

The location was close to, but far enough away from the town to be quietly peaceful. Minutes from a local grocery store and watering hole. The spacious decks provided a comfortable lounging area with scenic views of the Rocky Mountains. Lots of chairs in the yard. Nice touches. Cooking was a breeze in the kitchen. Appliances were clean, in great condition and easy to use. Timer controlled gas fireplace was delightful on a cold night. 6 peeps. Plenty of space to not feel crowded. Bedrooms were cozy and furnished well. Nice bedding. Toiletries (hand soap and lotion) provided. Slept like a rock on the comfortable and pillow laden bed. Clean.
