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 hiking, mountain climbing, horseback riding, ice climbing, fishing, hunting, rafting, 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.

You can find all of these activities within minutes of the home:

* FISHING ... Gold Medal/Blue Ribbon Fishing. 5 area lakes and public river a short drive away

* In Subdivision... Access to National Forest/Montgomery Reservoir, Lincoln Falls, Ice Climbing, 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.

The access is easy and 4-wheel drive/AWD is not a necessity during the summer months but is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED DURING THE WINTER MONTHS.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very cute and comfortable cabin, a perfect setting with great views. So much appreciated the fenced backyard so our dog could experience the freedom! The first night/morning about 4:30a we woke up to moose bugling! We looked outside the south windows and saw a huge mama moose and youth/baby next to the wood shed so close to the side/back deck! What a thrill! The next morning around 7a we saw the male moose with a huge rack! Loved your place! Thanks!

Amazing stay!!!!

We had an amazing time walking around the property! We also enjoy the local food and shops! Best of all we saw two moose one in the woods just off the property and one that walked right up to the house! Overall an amazing stay and an amazing house!

Another great summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this cabin and location so much, we returned again this year. It suits our needs and is close to everything we like to do. From hiking, fishing, exploring the area, sightseeing, to unspoiled small town atmosphere, it has just what we’re looking for in a location. We did our first 14er, Sherman, this year and caught some great rainbows!

Fantastic mountain cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, dog, and I stayed in this wonderful cabin for four days at the end of June. As has been noted by many previous reviewers, it is a very private location with wonderful views and the cabin is equipped with everything you need. Our dog loved having what amounted to his own deck which accessed the big, wooded fenced yard via a dog ramp – dog lovers, this is the place for you. Fairplay is a cool little town with some interesting shops, Prathers Market is a great grocery store, and don’t miss South Park Brewery if you’re a craft beer person. We echo a previous reviewer’s comments about great hiking around Hoosier Pass, and it’s an easy drive to Breckenridge which has many places to shop/eat/drink. Fairplay is known by some as “The fishing capital of Colorado” and if you’re a fly fisherman there is great access to the South Platte within 30 minutes, and “the dream stream” between the Spinney Mountain and Elevenmile Canyon reservoirs is less than an hour away for an amazing fly fishing experience. The owner, Michael, is a great communicator and was extremely responsive to any questions we had. Can’t recommend this property highly enough!

Amazing Little Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just stayed here 6/21-6/26 and we loved every minute of our stay. It was very clean, easy to get to and provided the privacy and opportunity for solitude and relaxation. The cabin was well stocked with everything needed and it was nice to come in after a long day of hiking or fishing and relax while cooking up some dinner. We have stayed in lots of cabins but this was one of my favorites. You cannot go wrong and this is so close to 14ers, lots of hiking trails, amazing trout fishing, Breckenridge and of course right by the cutest mountain towns of Fairplay & Alma. We hope to get back really soon and we would love to stay here anytime we do! Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful cabin!!!

This is a great, clean cabin that had everything with we needed. Plus it had a great yard for the dogs! It's just a short drive to Alma or Fairplay and close to lots of great hiking!
