About the property

3 Bedroom/2 Bath Cabin with Game Room - Secluded with Views.

Gold Trail Retreat offers maximum relaxation and fun. Hopefully you'll take time to experience a little peace and tranquility while you're here. The home is surrounded by Spruce, Pine and Aspen Trees. It is secluded and heavily wooded. The area is a popular hiking and climbing location. There are multiple old mines along many if the hiking trails going up the 14ers. There are five "fourteeners" within about 20 minutes of the home- Mount Sherman, Mount Lincoln, Mount Democrat, Mount Bross, and Mount Quandry. The cabin is about 20 minutes south of Breckenridge and within 45 minutes of numerous white water rafting launching points.

The home has 3 bedrooms. There is one bedroom with a king size bed and another bedroom with a queen size bed on the main level. There is a shared full size bath on this level. Downstairs there is a third bedroom that is a great kids hang out. It has a buk bed with a double bed on bottom and a twin on top. There is another twin as well in this room. The large recreation room has a television, lots of comfy seating and toys for the kiddos. There is a full size futon bed in the rec room too. A large game table is provided to work on your favorite jig-saw puzzle or play your favorite game. There is a shared full bath on this lower level as well with a shower/tub combo.

Gold Trail Retreat is only 25 minutes from the 5 star ski resort of Breckenridge. It has world-class skiing and boarding. There is also snowmobiling, sleigh rides, ice skating, alpine tubing, and much more. Keystone and A-basin are also only a short drive from the home and offer additional world-class skiing. As mentioned it is very close to many of the 14'ers which so many people come to Colorado to climb. Whether you are a climber or casual hiker, the area has beautiful trails to enjoy right from the property. If you are not into hiking, there are always horses to ride, white-water to conquer on a raft, snow shoe trails, cross country skiing, and many many other activities to challenge each and every person. If you are just into beautiful drives, there are many that we can recommend with old mines and pioneer towns to explore. There is fabulous outlet mall shopping in nearby Silverthorne where you can shop and pick up any supplies and clothing that you need for your adventures. It is just an awesome place to stay. There is no hustle and bustle and absolutely NO traffic and traffic noise. You are close enough to the activities to enjoy them if you want but far enough away to have your own peace and solitude.

The area has so much to offer in the way of activities. In the summer, there is horseback riding right down highway 9 at the Platte River Ranch. They have 2 hour rides, half day rides, and dinner rides. It is a great place for the family to go and ride through the forest and mountain meadows. They give you a true old West experience. There is fishing very near the property. There are several spots and parks near the home where you can fish. Hiking trails are all around in the Pike National Forest. Many of the famous 14'ers are in this area like Mt. Sherman, Mt. Lincoln, Mt. Bross, Mt. Democrat, and the Buffalo Peaks. If you like ATVing, bring them along and there are many many areas to ride in like Breakneck and Browns Pass and 4-Mile ATV park. Mosquito Pass Road is very very close to the home and you can ride right over Mosquito Pass into Leadville where there are 100's of old mines to explore. You can even ride right into town and enjoy lunch or dinner at some of the quaint refurbished mining town restaurants. There are lots of antique shops to explore as well. It is an awesome day trip.

If you like outlet shopping, Silverthorne is only a short drive and has great shops. Breckenridge also has dozens of great unique shops. Just call us and we can point you toward the nearest ghost town or hiking trail. Be sure to visit the restored 1800's mining town of South Park which is right in Fairplay. It is truly a must see!

The house was very nice, nicer than the pictures showed.

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice, nicer than the pictures showed. The furniture was In very good condition. The kitchen was well stocked. The only downside was that we could not get the basement warm without the upstairs being too hot.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We really appreciate it. I am glad you had a good time. Thank you for letting us know about the basement. I told the homeowner and he has gone in and adjusted the venting on the furnace so that the basement will get more air and you won't need to overheat the upstairs. Thank you again and I hope you can return soon.
