1. 611 W Main St, Aspen, CO

611 W Main St
Aspen, CO 81611
With 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, this historic building in Aspen, Colorado doesn't come cheap at $3,500,000. But its primed and ready for a flip. The 2,700-square-feet are currently being used as an office on the main level with residential above, but its prime location in downtown would make it an ideal second home or full-time retreat.

2. 355 Northern Cross Drive, Big Bear, CA

355 Northern Cross Dr
Big Bear Lake, CA 92315
Originally constructed in 1978, this California A-frame in Big Bear boasts two bedrooms and a large loft. And while the large stone fireplace is still charming, much of the outdated design is not. But with a reasonable price of only $265,000, his 1,056 square foot cabin could be something special.

3. 2668 Main Street, Manchester, VT

Manchester Center, VT 05255
Set on 31 acres with unobstructed views of the Green Mountain National Forest, this 3-bedroom, 3-bath 1982 home might need some upgrades, but it has a lot of potential. Located near Stratton Resort and with plenty of log-home charm, the $979,000 price tag gives you a lot of land for the money.

4. 471 South Hill Road, Stockbridge, VT

471 S Hill Rd
Stockbridge, VT 05772
Asking a mere $117,000, this A-frame is only a 20-minute drive to Killington and Pico resorts but could become an epic mountain retreat. Sure, it's a bit small with only 896 square feet, but its funky styling (it was built in 1970) and wrap-around deck are just begging for a hipster remodel.

5. 265 Starview Dr, Park City, UT

265 Starview Dr
Park City, UT 84098
We love geodesic domes, so this 3-bedroom, 4-bath listing is right up our ally. Sure, the design is all 1990s-bland at the moment, but take out the carpet and strip down the walpaper and you'd have quite the ski chalet for only $535,000.

6. 12205 Palmer Creek Dr, Jackson, WY

The listing admits that this property would be a "great starter home or fixer upper," especially because the home hasn't received many upgrades since it was first built in 1985. But at $670,000 for the home's 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, this Jackson, WY retreat offers a whole lot of cabin charm.

Maybe it's the bright green carpet throughout he house or the boring white countertops, but this home in Bend, Oregon is in dire need of a reboot. Fortunately, the 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath home's reasonably $299,900 asking price makes it a good value and its location in Bend is top notch.

8. 3925 N Lake Blvd, Carnelian Bay, CA

Carnelian Bay, CA 96140
It's rare to find a property this close to Lake Tahoe for only $469,500, but the price does reflect how much work this 4-bedroom, 3-bath property really needs. But the promise is there, including over 2,000 square feet, lake views, an easy walk to a beach, and two master suites.

9. 14386 S Shore Dr, Truckee, CA

14386 S Shore Dr
Truckee, CA 96161
Perhaps the most bizarre looking fixer upper on the list, this 2-bedroom, 2-bath property near Truckee wants $999,000 for 1,167 square feet. That may seem a bit steep, especially when the home's living room is dominated by a two-story climbing wall, but the location is hard to beat. Lakefront on the south side of Donner Lake, a creative architect could turn this weird listing into a true gem.

10. 26 Meek Ave, Minturn, CO

26 Meek Ave
Minturn, CO 81645
It's hard to find a fixer upper near the pricey towns of Vail or Beaver Creek. That's why this 4-bedroom, 3-bath listing in Minturn, Colorado is such a steal. Priced at only $565,000 this home can sleep the whole ski crew and still have room left over. There's also an oversized garage for gear, but be prepared, this one needs a complete overhaul.
