Overview

About the property

Gorgeous 3 Bedroom/ 2 Bath Home with Fishing Nearby

River Run Ridge is an amazing property located at the top of a ridge overlooking the Continental Divide and the Platte River. The home is about 5 minutes South of Fairplay and 25 minutes North of Buena Vista. The view are breath-taking. You can see for miles with the Platte River in the foreground and the white-capped mountains of the Continental Divide in the background. The location is very central to activities in Breckenridge, Buena Vista, South Park, and Colorado Springs and Canon Springs.

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).

ENJOY!

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.

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.

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 days/4 nights and had a wonderful time! We enjoyed exploring the local town of Fairplay (South Park), but also did several day trips with just a short drive to Aspen, Breckenridge, Buena Vista, Salida & Vail.

At the end of the day it was easy to relax in the home which was comfortable, clean & spacious. The beautiful views out of every window meant you never lose any of the majestic scenery. We wouldn't change a thing and highly recommend this rental!
