Great place for my family to get a way and relax. We'll definitely be coming back.

Michelle (review from Airbnb)
Great for a family retreat! Everyone has their own space with perfect areas for everyone to gather together also. Beds were comfortable and the house was well laid out. We cooked everyday and the kitchen was stocked with all the necessities. However, the kitchen was a little tight and only two or three people in the kitchen at one time was manageable. The town of Fairplay has a few good restaurants and we enjoyed fishing in the local streams. Overall, our large family and dog Ranger loved our stay.

Danuta (review from Airbnb)
wonderful home with a beautiful view! we saw lots of wildlife!

Andrew (review from Airbnb)
Very comfortable home. We had a great time staying there.

Hector (review from Airbnb)
Our whole family was very impressed with the cabin. It was very neat and had everything we needed and more! The woods were absolutely beautiful and we enjoyed our walks during the day. It was our first time visiting Colorado and Fairplay exceed our expectations with how beautiful and vast it was. 10/10 would book again!

Sarah (review from Airbnb)
Great house with beautiful surroundings! The kitchen was well stocked and even had an espresso machine.

Jackie (review from Airbnb)
The house is beautiful and secluded with gorgeous views! Unfortunately, there were swarms of mosquitoes outside so we did not get to enjoy the outdoor porch and other outdoor activities. When coming and going from the house or getting in and out of your car.. It was a mad dash to avoid letting mosquitoes in.
We purchased more toilet paper because there were only 2 extra rolls for a family of 5 with a week long stay.
The pillows weren’t the best, so I recommend taking your own.
Lots of kitchen plates, cups, utensils, etc. however, a lot of them had a film on them. So we washed before use.
Shower/tub on the main floor doesn’t drain very well. So you end up standing in ankle high water.
The couch in the living room is very comfortable and spacious.
If you have young kids, they have tons of toys and puzzles for them to play with.
There is plenty of space for a large family to spread out.
Washer and dryer work great. Laundry detergent, softener, and dryer sheets are all provided.

Abby (review from Airbnb)
Beautiful location and enough space for group to spread out. Very clean and quick responses from host.

Neil (review from Airbnb)
We had a great time there! Beautiful property and beautiful house!

Kristin (review from Airbnb)
What a beautiful mountain escape!

Hi Kristin, thank you for the kind words and feedback, we’ve taken note! You were all lovely to host and welcome back any time!

Albert (review from Airbnb)
Fantastic cabin. Clean, cozy, far enough from town to have peace yet close enough to get necessities (10 minute drive). Highly recommend staying here.

Hi Albert, thanks so much!! We love that about this home, as well :-). You’re welcome back any time!

Alo (review from Airbnb)
Un lugar precioso para hospedarse, un poco alejado del resto de la población pero Perfecto para vivir toda la experiencia de conectar con la naturaleza y la nieve, paisajes hermosos rodean la cabaña, muy limpia y bonita! Volvería sin duda :)

¡Gracias por las amables palabras! Estamos muy contentos de que haya tenido un viaje relajante en la naturaleza :-). ¡Eres bienvenido cuando quieras!

Quad trip
The house is great. We had a good time on the area trails.
The mosquitoes make the deck unusable after 5
Just a couple small maintenance items like the main floor tub drains slow and the water pressure gets weak during busy times
