  • Beautiful home!!!


    I was so amazed at the gorgeous views all around. It was breath taking. The home had all the amenities it described and our family had an amazing time. The home is located I believe around 11k ft, and let me tell you, it was hard to breath, so take some oxygen with you. I definitely recommend this home and I would come back to visit again. Thank you!

  • Absolutely incredible


    We have a group of friends that travel from all over the country to ski together for MLK weekend, and we decided on FairPlay this year for our home base. This house is absolutely amazing, the hosts have thought of ever possible detail to create an exceptional experience. The kitchen is stocked with everything we could have ever needed which was great because we cooked all meals at home, and the living areas both on the main floor and basement were so perfect for all of the time we spent at the house. We really enjoyed the hot tubs and even the sleds in the garage, lol. If visiting in the winter, four wheel drive is ann absolute must but we were told that ahead of time(it was no joke! Lol). Upon entry we also discovered a super generous gift basket which was stocked full of very thoughtful goodies. I cant say enough things, I hope to return again!!

  • Great Mountain Stay


    The listing said this place was the "ultimate mountain retreat" and our group was not disappointed! The house has plenty of space for a group to rest, relax, and have fun together. We were impressed by the attention to detail which made this such a great place to stay during our trip. The kitchen was impressively stocked with cooking tools, utensils, plates, etc. We enjoyed the hot tub, horse shoe pits, outside fire, and gorgeous mountain views. We even got to take in a meteor shower one night from the deck -- truly amazing!

    Hosts were communicative, kind, and did a great job throughout the booking and arrival process. We appreciated their efforts very much.

  • Fantastic Home


    Beautiful home and beautiful property. Kitchen very well stocked with all the pans and dishes, etc. you might need. Our family loved staying here. There was 12 of us counting the children and we never felt like we were on top of each other. Having a bath with each bedroom was a luxury. It felt like a home while staying there, not just a rental if that makes sense. The owner was very helpful and a pleasure to rent from. You will not regret staying here.

  • Everything we needed!!


    This cabin is absolutely amazing!! It truly has everything you could possibly need! We were so impressed by how well stocked everything was. We loved the beautifully decorated interior, the cleanliness, and how organized everything was . Very cozy! My advice is to listen to the owner and make sure you have winter tires and 4 wheel drive. The drive up there and the driveway is very steep and very slick. Regular wheels won’t make it. Drink plenty of water and load up on carbs. The elevation sickness is REAL. I’m the only one in my party who wasn’t miserably sick for two days.
