About the property

Studio Log Cabin with Hot Tub near Breckenridge in the Historic Town of Alma

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!

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


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.

Amazing little cabin that was a pefect little getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was clean and had everything my husband and I needed, including a little fenced in yard for our yellow lab and a perfect two person hot tub for the cool nights. It was just the right size for the three of us. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. Just 20 minutes from Breckenridge this cabin is located at the end of the quiet little town of Alma. Alma also has a small pub with great homemade pizza and locally brewed beer as well as a small park with a little watering hole for the dog to cool off, and kids to play if you have them. We were even graced with the local young bull moose who made himself available for a short time for great pictures in the middle of town. I would highly recommend this cabin for your next Colorado getaway!

Lovely little Alma cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had such a nice time in Alma in this quirky little cabin. The town is adorable and we had no trouble finding the cabin. We were there for the meteor shower and had a nice time in the two person hot tub. The surrounding area is lovely and has plenty to do if you like the outdoors. Had a great time!

Tiny but awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We really had a nice time staying at this cabin. It was tiny (about the size of a large hotel room) but so comfy and fun. The hot tub was super nice addition. We will be back for sure.

Cozy retreat for a mountain stay

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is in the lovely small town of Alma, and is cute and cozy and well furnished. It would be great for a couple. It's got a nice small yard, a nice small hot tub, a nice small kitchen... In a word: cozy!

Cute place, close and far enough from Breck

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to Colorado for our last big trip without a baby. We wanted to stay in the mountains and wanted to be close to Breckenridge to have the option to check it out but also be far from crowds. This place was PERFECT. We loved this little cabin so much and did not want to leave. We ate at the nearby South Park saloon, went to the general store and everyone was so nice. We also went to Fairplay, which was not far away. We went to some beautiful hikes in the area that were easy enough for me to do 6 months pregnant. There are definitely opportunities for more intense hikes for those who want that! Debi had everything we could need, the WiFi was reliable, bed comfortable, quiet area. My husband enjoyed the hot tub, I enjoyed putting my feet in. Altitude wasn’t an issue for us, but we also spent a few days in Denver before heading to Alma.

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.
