About the Property

Luxurious 5 Bedroom Full Log Home with Mountain Views/ Stream Location

"THE GREAT ESCAPE" is an exquisite custom full log home located in Valley of the Sun which is one of the more prominent developments in Park County. It is only 25 minutes from Breckenridge with easy access to Highway 9. This 4000 square foot home has views of the white-capped mountains to the West and is on a wooded and secluded property. Sacramento Creek runs through the property and there is a fishing easement that is accessible. This home has it all. There are 5 large bedrooms. Four of them sleep 4 people in addition to the master suite. One of the bedrooms is in the loft which is a great place for the kids to hang out. It is very common to see Moose, Elk, and Deer right on the property. There is a family of 5 moose that frequently visit. The deck with fabulous shaded views has a gas grill and lots of outdoor seating.

The front entry of The Great Escape has a porch providing extra areas to escape and relax while watching for wildlife. The kitchen is huge with lots of room to cook and entertain. It has everything a gourmet cook's heart could desire. There is even a double oven to cook for the entire family. It is a fabulous place for large family gatherings or holiday vacations. There is a dining area off the kitchen with a large table that seats 10-12 people. There is also extra seating at the island. It has a very open and inviting charm. There is a sitting area where family members can gather around a gas fireplace and talk to the ones working hard to prepare the meals. The kitchen has a large walk-in pantry and a half bath.

The great room is really beyond description. The vaulted ceilings and windows in the room are two stories high making the room spacious and cheerful. The gorgeous stone wood-burning fireplace is also two story. The windows overlook the back forested area. Some firewood is provided. Upstairs, there is a balcony that opens to the great room with a queen bed and two twin beds. It is a great place for the kiddos to hang out.

The master suite is also on the main level. It is a very large and inviting room with beautiful luxurious furnishings. There are french doors providing a private entrance to the deck area. The attached master bath has a claw foot tub to relax in. It adds to the charm of the room. If you like showers, you will love this beautiful custom tiled walk-in shower. There is a large walk-in closet as well and lots of storage in the vanity area with floor to ceiling cabinets.

The main floor also has a beautiful office with a library of books for those who have to get some work done or for just snuggling up with a good book in a comfy leather chair.

Downstairs, there is a 1000 square foot recreation room. There is a full size gorgeous bar for entertaining, with lots of seating around the bar for your guests. There is also a poker / game table and a large full size air hockey table. This is not the typical small air hockey game but a large one the size of a pool table. There is a foos-ball table in the room which will add hours of entertainment. Lots of comfortable seating is provided for the whole family. Satellite televison and wireless internet are provided for your enjoyment.

The downstairs floor has a full size bath as well as a half bath. There are three bedrooms downstairs and all three of them have a queen bed and two twin bunk beds. The home sleeps 18 people in the 5 bedrooms. There is room for 5 families to stay very comfortably in this home. It is the perfect place to make family memories and have the most fabulous vacation you will remember.

The outdoor area surrounding the home is also a place you will want to spend a lot of time relaxing. There is a covered porch on the front of the home as well as a large expansive deck on the back of the home. The deck has beautiful views of the white-capped mountains and surrounding forest and hillls. There is brand new Bull Frog Hot Tub on the deck with the same amazing views. There is also a new picnic table on the deck. Sacramento Creek runs through the property with private fishing. It is wonderful area for kids to explore and try their hand at fishing. It is on private property so no fishing license is required as long as you stay on the private property. The property is very wooded and secluded. You will not see any other cabins or structures from the property. There is a gas grill and patio furniture to relax and enjoy the views and wildlife. It is also a great place to enjoy the views or the wildlife. Moose are frequent visitors to the property!

Fairplay and Alma are the activity center of the Colorado Rocky Mountains and is often referred to as the Base Camp for all activities some of which include skiing, snowboarding, hiking, mountain climbing, snow-shoeing, horseback riding (winter too), ice climbing, fishing, hunting, rafting, snow-mobiling, 4-wheeling, ATVing, mine exploring, canoeing, kayaking, and much much more.

If you can think of an outdoor activity, you will probably find it within 10-20 minutes of the cabin. It is a great area to call your "Base Camp".

This is a beautiful home to spend any season of the year. The access is easy and 4-wheel drive is not a necessity but is recommended in the winter months. You can find all of these activities within minutes of the home:

* FISHING ... On the property and Gold Medal/Blue Ribbon Fishing. 5 area lakes and public river a short drive away
* Within Minutes of the home... Access to National Forest/Montgomery Reservoir, Lincoln Falls, Ice Climbing, skiing, snowboarding, and some of the best snow-shoeing and 4-wheeling in Colorado

You will enjoy the flexibility of being able to explore all of the exciting areas in the heart of the Rockies by being in the center of all the activities. You will be able to enjoy a luxurious home but also the seclusion and beauty that only a true mountain setting can offer.
