Luxurious 5 Bedroom Full Log Home with New Hot Tub/ Mountain Views/ Stream Location/Gameroom. Sleeps 18.

"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 5700 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.

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.

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.

This is in addition to the laundry room upstairs. The home has a two car garage so you can enter the home right from the comfort of the warm and dry garage.

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". Enjoy your stay!

Awesome home that is fully equipped!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Great Escape for a week of skiing! The home is a vacation on it’s own!! Spacious and fully equipped! Hot tubbing after a day of skiing was terrific. Fireplaces were wonderful in the cold evenings. We would definitely stay there again.

Definitely a "Great Escape"!!

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to describe how great this house is!! More than enough room for our three families. The children had a marvelous time in the game room--well, I said children, but the adults seem to have just as much fun. If there was anything to change, I wish I had a little better view of the surrounding mountains. There's a lot of trees. This is truly a wonderful place to relax, and for us, to escape the brutal Texas heat!! Susan was great and so easy to work with.

Amazing and Secluded Vacation Home in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous home for a family gathering. It could not have been a more perfect place for our Christmas reunion. It was much more than promised. We loved the location and the amenities were amazing. We plan to return every year. It was about 30 minutes to Breckenridge but the drive was beautiful.
