"Sunrise was a highlight! - Chris R

Tucked among the aspens with an expansive view of the mountains, this 3,100 square foot, four master bedroom, six bathroom lodge is your home away from home. The lodge is centrally located five miles outside of Fairplay Colorado in Warm Springs Ranch for quick access to Breckenridge and Buena Vista. Many guests refer to the Lodge as their "Base Camp" to explore the Rockies. There is a definite warmth and welcoming feeling to this special home and area that will help you get away from the busyness of your daily life.

Tasteful mountain-inspired décor can be found throughout this Colorado mountain home, from each of its four master bedrooms to all three of its large living areas. Hardwood floors with in-floor radiant heating and exposed log ceiling lend charm to the spacious great room area. Relax by the gorgeous two story stone fireplace or enjoy a cup of coffee on the deck while watching the sunrise over the mountains.

There are four master suites in this lodge, one on the main level with a jetted tub, and all have walk-in closets & private decks or a patio for your comfort and scenic views.

The great room boasts a two story stone fireplace with floor-to-ceiling windows offering unparalleled views of the Kenosha and Tarryall mountain ranges and Pikes Peak in the distance. You can see for miles over the aspens and the Valley of South Park.

The kitchen, with stainless steel appliances and the adjoining dining area are a chef’s and entertainer’s dream and perfectly situated to enjoy casual living and views of the mountains. The spacious kitchen is fully stocked with all kitchen utensils, dishes and cooking supplies you will need for a home away from home.

The loft is a comforting area to relax and sit by the wood burning stove and read a book or watch a movie on Direct TV or from a selection of DVD’s.

Relax after a long day hiking or skiing in our new Hot Tub! Great for Sunrise, Sunset and enjoying the spectacular stars!

For the fishermen in the group, there are five stocked private fishing ponds located on the Warm Springs Ranch that are available for you to use without a fishing license.

For the hiker, The Good Shepherd’s Lodge backs up to open space and connects to the Pike National Forest for great hiking and exploring.

For the reader, the family room has a large library of over 150 books for your reading pleasure. In fact, it you start one and can't finish it, you can take it home!

About Mark and Nancy Lindgren

We lived for many years in Minnesota but always wanted to live in Colorado at some point in our lives. We now live and work in Denver but fully enjoy our time "up on the mountain".

The pace, the beauty, the adventures that we have at The Good Shepherds Lodge help us relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. We hope that, as our guests, you feel that way as well.

Cozy Stay

  • 5 of 5

Mark was incredibly informative about the area and accommodating when we asked for an early check-in. Would stay here again if I venture out to Fairplay in the future.

This log home getaway was everything we hoped for.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the "Good Shepherds Lodge". We had always wanted to stay at a real log home and this really fit what we were looking for. Its built with huge logs. The fireplaces were wonderful. The home is cozy but spacious. The lot is in a gated community but has lots of land and its a very quiet setting with wonderful views. The location is ideal and a relatively short drive to ski resorts. The home is just a few miles from the small town of Fairplay that has a grocery store and a place to save money on ski rental equipment. The owners are very accommodating and were available to answer questions we had about the area and how things worked. We highly recommend this place and hope to rent it again in the future.

Refreshing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Shepherd's Lodge is a beautiful place! Very spacious, cozy, clean and AMAZING views! The weekend my family went to get away for the weekend, we immediately fell in love with it being away from the fast paced life. Knowing we could actually think and have conversation without distractions was refreshing. We enjoyed how we could all be together but not feel on top of each other at the same time. The lodge does have a TV but I can't recall us ever turning it on because we enjoyed playing board games which we haven't done for a long time. The owners do a fabulous job of making sure you have everything and have really thought through everything. I don't think there was a time we were bummed we forgot something either because we ended up bringing it or it was already at the house. They really do take great care of their guests. If you are on the fence of experiencing this magnificent place, I am here to tell you- You need to go! For natives or non - Shepherd's Lodge really reminds you of the beauty that surrounds us daily and why we all truly love being in Colorado. Hands down the best Airbnb I have every been to!

Excellent multi-family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our group was 4 young families- 8 adults and 8 children and the lodge suited us perfectly. The rooms were spacious and the shared space was perfect for our group. The kitchen was extremely well appointed. The community hiking trails and fishing ponds were great!

Excellent property, highly recommended!
