Style Notes

Traditional mountain cabin. Complete with a deer head on the super high wall in the main living space, this traditional cabin is a warm and welcoming place to stay with plenty of classic detailing. Vaulted ceilings, wood finishes, and a gas rock fireplace give the house a cozy cabin feel. The property’s southern exposure floods the open floor plan with plenty of natural light. We love the cozy bedrooms, the countryside views from the deck and the awesome family adventures to be had nearby.

Fairplay, Colorado

Mules and the mountains

Colorado’s trout fishing capital is a great place to bring the kids - with mountain views, outdoor adventures and new activities to try each day, there’s plenty to keep you occupied. Try fishing for trout or panning for gold in mountain streams, visit the South Park City Museum to see a real life trapper’s cabin, saloon and general store from the 1800s, and don’t miss the town’s open air art venues. Visit in the summer to see re-enactments of Colorado’s earliest days, with Gold Rush miners and donkeys to ride.
