About Us

The Fairplay Chalet is a dream come true for two professionals who longed for a peaceful and relaxing weekend getaway close to great ski resorts, hiking and fishing yet within easy driving distance from the Denver Metro area.  After searching hundreds of properties in Summit and Park Counties, the owners purchased land in the South Park area and set out to build their dream cabin in the mountains, which they finished themselves in 2008.

The fruits of this laborious effort - an aesthetically appealing mountain retreat that is too good not to share with others.  The large deck is great for sipping morning coffee and bird watching. In the evening, relax by one of two fireplaces with a cup of hot cocoa.  Read a book in the Loft Library.  Play foosball, shuffleboard, darts or watch a movie.  After you're done relaxing in the cabin, step outside to enjoy numerous activities in winter and summer from snowshoeing and sledding out the back door to hiking 14ers and fishing gold medal waters just minutes away.  A short drive, you will find the finest skiing on earth, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, ATV/four wheeling/snowmobiling, cross country skiing, hot springs ...

The Fairplay Chalet and South Park area are proud to feature: 
Location, Location, Location

The Fairplay Chalet is located between Fairplay and Alma in the Valley of the Sun at 11,100 feet in elevation.  Off the beaten path for a true peaceful mountain experience, yet close to mountain amenities.  It is less than two hours from Colorado Springs and Denver, 23 miles to Breckenridge, and about 35 miles to Buena Vista.  Another bonus: the cabin location is easily accessed via Hwy 285, avoiding travel on the overcrowded I-70 mountain route.
