Holiday House, Cabin in Alma, Fairplay, Breckenridge
"The Irish Rose" - Your Colorado dream vacation get-away!
Completed in May 2002, this mountain cabin is located on the historic Mosquito Gulch Trail. Just 15 miles south of Breckenridge, it is the perfect spot for either a secluded get-away or a ski vacation at a fraction of the cost.
Centered on ten acres of pine and aspen, the Irish Rose was designed to accommodate those who want a true Colorado experience. With Mosquito Creek flowing nearby, you will enjoy spectacular views of Pennsylvania and London Mountains as you relax with family and friends.
If summer hiking, biking or four-wheeling is your desire, four of Colorado's 14,000 foot peaks are at your doorstep, providing some of the best hiking and driving trails in the world. Tackle the summits of Mount Bross, Mount Democrat, Mount Cameron, and Mount Lincoln... all in a single day!
Gold pan on the local creeks, explore "Buckskin Joe" trail, and visit the ghost town of Park City. The historic mining towns of Alma and Fairplay are also nearby. Mountain bike to your heart's content or drive the legendary 4x4 "Mosquito Pass" into Leadville. Pick wildlowers and view wildlife--there's something for everyone!
If winter activities are your goal, the beautiful village of Breckenridge is just a short drive north where you can enjoy premier Colorado skiing, dining, and shopping. Keystone, Arapahoe Basin, and Copper Mountain are also close. Or, stay near home and cross-country ski to your heart's content. We have it all!
The Irish Rose was built with families in mind. The main level has a great room with a gas fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing the beautiful mountains and trees. It is surrounded by a huge 32x8 foot wrap-around deck. A full kitchen and dining area are also on this level to create an open, spacious environment. Pets are NOT allowed, No Smoking.
There are two main level bedrooms, one with a queen bed, and one with bunk beds geared for up to four kids. The great room sofa also pulls out to a queen-size bed. The master bedroom loft has a queen bed, washer and dryer, along with a small private balcony. There are full baths on both the main level and the loft. (The cabin also has a lower level with a private entrance which is occasionally used by the owners. This unit is not rented. Please inquire whether anyone will be there during your stay.)
Experience the Rocky Mountains in the comfort of the "Irish Rose". At over 10,000ft elevation, it's as close to heaven as you can get!
