This quintessential Colorado mountain house getaway is secluded, yet near lots of attractions. Just what you've been looking for and reasonably priced for all the high quality space (2300 sq ft) and incredible views that you get. Our home is located just 1 3/4 hours from Denver or Colorado Springs. Hike, bike, ski/snow board, cross country ski, fish, or sight see, and return to your cozy mountain cabin with all the comforts of home. Enjoy unprecedented peace, quiet and 180 degree views of the snow-capped Rockies, meadows, trees and rock outcroppings from the 20 foot wall of windows or loft. Look for antelope, deer, elk, golden eagles, owls and bear from the wrap around 500 square foot deck.
The home sits on two heavily wooded acres, has a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and Aspen tongue and groove ceilings. The master bedroom offers a full size king size bed, and the two other bedrooms (one on entry level with its own bath) offer queen beds. The entry level floor is fully finished and offers a third living area and game table as well as laundry room with washer/dryer. Stay connected with wireless Internet with unlimited data (new!), play games from the game chest, or enjoy watching Direct TV television with HBO or watching DVD's on the flat screen television. Chef's kitchen is fully equipped for cooking or baking, and there is a propane gas BBQ on the deck for evening cookouts. Leave refreshed, relaxed and recharged!
Enjoy a multitude of attractions in the area, with just a short ride home to the peace and quiet of your exclusive and private mountain retreat. You can drive to Breckenridge to ski, shop or dine, hike or mountain bike hundreds of trails in the Pike National Forest, Lost Park Wilderness area, Kenosha Pass or Jefferson Lake, fish at Tarryall Reservoir, 4-wheel over Mosquito Pass (the old Stagecoach route to Leadville), Georgia Pass or Boreas Pass (the old railroad route to Breckenridge), or enjoy horseback riding nearby. Mount Princeton Hot Springs, near Buena Vista, offers two large pools for swimming (and a large slide) year round as well as spa treatments and fun for the whole family.
In winter, you can ski Breckenridge or Keystone, cross country ski out your back door, sled down the old ski hill at Indian Mountain, or go over to Hoosier Pass and snow shoe. Alternatively, you can ski at the more moderately priced, less used Monarch ski resort on Monarch Pass, which is down 285 west of Salida. Lots of great winter activities in Breckenridge too including an ice skating rink and hot chocolate sleigh rides in Frisco. They also have two Nordic lodges in Breckenridge and Frisco where you can cross country ski on groomed trails. Alternatively, just rent the skis in Fairplay and do it outside your door from the cabin!
