This charming little gem is the perfect getaway. Just 16 miles from Breckenridge and 6 miles from Fairplay in the quaint town of Alma. This compact studio home has everything you need; a kitchen and full bath and a comfortable new euro top bed with high quality bedding. The large sofa is great to kick back on and enjoy a book or movie. Tastefully decorated with antiques and quality artwork. Walk down to the Platte River for some fishing or jump on the bike path or many nearby hiking and mountain bike trails. Just a 5 minute walk to the fun downtown restaurants and shops. Please note bedroom is open to the living room. There is a door to the bathroom. You'll be surprised how well set up it is!! On the outside patio, we have a picnic table, gas grill and two adirondack chairs and, of course, the two person hot tub!

About DEBORAH OBRIEN
We love to travel and enjoy the outdoors. As a retired realtors and builders we also love finding houses to fix up! Here we are with the Little Bear Cabin! We are connoisseurs of vacation rentals and are always trying to learn new ideas for making our place more comfortable for our guests. We gladly receive suggestions and try to act on them!!
DEBORAH OBRIEN purchased this Cabin in 2014
Why DEBORAH OBRIEN chose Alma
We love the small town 'get away from it all' feeling of Alma but also it's proximity to Breckenridge, Fairplay and Buena Vista and all the gorgeous mountain scenery and endless opportunities for hiking, biking and exploring. When this cabin came on the saw the potential for restoring it and offering it for short term rentals... it is a the perfect size for an escape from the hussle and bussle of the cities, a place for time alone to write or draw or a romantic getaway. We also love the ease of walking into town for a bite or heading up Buckskin Gulch for a walk or to 'bag a 14'er'. And if Summit County is incredible shopping, a plethora of restaurants and museum and activities only 16 miles away.
What makes this Cabin unique
We choose this home because we have always been drawn to historic log cabins. Marty's expert carpentry and Debi's designer sense has transformed it into a perfect cozy space with all the luxuries of home. I love sitting on the sunny patio in the front or walking down to the park or coffee shop. I especially love kicking back with a book and letting it all go.

Beautiful cabin, great little town
Its a perfect romantic getaway and escape from hectic city life. The little cabin was exactly what my wife and I needed to connect, after months of work and kids and stress. The amenities like the grill and hot tub were awesome, and it felt very secluded even with close neighbors and traffic to ski areas.
The only thing i would suggest is a way to play music, like a radio or speaker with a bluetooth or av cord. We tried to listen to youtube on the tv
set but its speakers are pretty badly trashed.
Instead we listened to the crickets, watched the stars and sat back with some locally made IPAs.
We cant wait until life affords us a chance to come here again - Thank you so much!
Not what we expected.
I booked for Labor day weekend months ago. Since no address was provided on booking I had no way of knowing the cabin is in the middle of town, on a busy road, next to other houses. No address was provided until pretty close to the reservation date. We spent the night before we realized the cabin had not been cleaned, towels not washed and bedding not changed. The owner did credit me for one night but I ended up leaving a night early so it was a wash. The cleaner showed up unannounced and had to clean around us even though the owner told me she'd be there at a different time. Cleaner said it was a pretty common occurrence that cleaning was not scheduled correctly and to not change bedding in between each set of guests. The cabin is extremely small, the queen bed was too hard for me to sleep on, I had to struggle to sleep on the couch. The hot tub was nice but the neighbors across the road had dogs that barked at us from the balcony whenever we were out in the front. Just not the private, secluded experience I was hoping for.
Juliet, I currently have over 85 positive reviews with an average rating of 4.85. I have rented my homes with vrbo (and one other company) for over 13 years and have been what one would consider a super host. So, as is my pattern... I contacted you immediately upon check-in to assure that you made it safely and everything was wonderful. It was at that time that we both realized the cleaner had made an error on the check in date. (which by the way..had NEVER happened our 13 year vrbo rental history) We immediately worked to resolve the situation and I offered to give you a free nights stay and/or to pay for you to relocate. We immediately got you clean sheets and towels and had the place cleaned. My description clearly states that the cabin is located in the town of Alma. I use the cabin for 3 months every year and I can vouch (as do my 85 other reviewers) that the bed is the most comfortable I have ever owned (and I am a self-proclaimed bed princess!) I am truly sad we did not meet your expectations and I hope your next rental experience is everything you want. Sincerely, Debi
Great location for exploring the surrounding areas! Super comfy and homey cabin! All you need!!
A great cabin for two!! Deborah and Mike provided everything you will need for a very comfortable stay. Away from the hustle and bustle of Breckenridge but close enough to go as often as you want. Only 6 miles from FairPlay where you have some really good dining options. Easy access to Buena Vista and Salida to the south and over the pass into Breckenridge, Frisco and Vail just to name a few of our favorite places we visited. We would highly recommend this cabin for your stay and will definitely stay here the next time we are in the area!! Couldn't recommend it any higher!!!
16 miles from the resort town of Breckenridge. The town of Alma is surrounded by five 14,000 peaks. Local activities include biking, fishing, hiking and centrally located for white water rafting excursions, horse back riding, mountain climbing or just relaxing and enjoying the fresh mountain air and small town feeling. Alma has a handful of cute shops; a fun clothing boutique, a sheep skin coat store (plus other gifts) and super cool general store that also has a full Carhart clothing store next to it. The restaurants in town are currently (9/1/2015) the South Park Saloon and the Alma Coffee House and you can get some prepared items and tons of food at Almart (the general store). Fairplay offers quite a few more nice restaurants and shops. And, of course a quick drive over the pass to Breckenridge (only 16 miles) offers more restaurants and shopping than you can shake a stick at!! I have a notebook at the cabin pointing out hikes and bikes and fishing spots nearby that we love. The notebook also includes local menus and a Summit County Menu Guide.
