This elegant home was custom-built in '06 with meticulous attention to detail by the owners. It is located in the exclusive, gated Bridger's Cache Community that has the only ski in - ski out private homes in the Winter Park resort area. Our home has been featured in Signature Kitchens and Baths, and has been requested for another spread in a different home magazine slated to appear during the Winter of '09. It is a truly special place.
The owners are in the area year round and will be able to provide travel advice, and will generally be readily available if there are questions about the operation of any appliances, etc.
Beginner skiers would enjoy their day most on all the green and blue slopes on the Winter Park side. Winter Park is well known for its excellent ski instructors. (For families with little ones who are not skiers, it is easiest to take the bus from the base of Jane down to the ski school's entrance at the base of Winter Park.) From the Winter Park side for the return home, take blue runs back down from the top of Mary Jane. The daring among you can come home from Winter Park on Outhouse. For the experts among you, stay for the day on the Mary Jane side for the Needle's Eye, the Shoots, Trestle and all the others.
The gourmet chef of your household will love the kitchen. It is fully equipped. You'll want to plan your groceries, perhaps making a stop on the front range and then filling in at the local Safeway in Fraser.

The owner operates a small farm nearby with poultry, bovine, equine, greenhouse, and haying activities. We're right down the road and available to our guests.
Elena Campbell purchased this house in 2006
We designed our home to accommodate our family: Mom and Dad, their 3 grown kids, and their grandkids. So, there are four rooms for the adults, and 2 bunk rooms for the kids to share. Perfect!
On beautiful ski days, it is so nice to be able to park the car in the garage and put on our skiis. No parking hassles!
My family and friends stayed here over President's weekend. There were 15 people in our group including 7 kids: ages 13, 12, 12,9,9,8,and 5. There was more than enough room for all of us and it was nice that the kids had a "wing" of the house to themselves to hang out and play. The radiant heating in the floors was also a perk and we never even felt cold when it was -4 degrees outside! We didn't rent a 4 wheel drive but wish that we had because the driveway is a little steep and slippery when covered with snow. It would have been no big deal with a different vehicle.
---The hot tub was so perfect and it felt great to just relax after a day of skiing. It was perfectly located right out the patio doors of the great room. In the entryway downstairs, there was an area to hang all of your coats and a place for you to dry your ski boots and gloves. The great room was huge and was a great place for all of us to just spend time talking about the events of the day. The home really had so many neat and carefully thought through amenities. We were really impressed and it was perfect for our family and friends. The kids and adults had a blast.
----Now on to what we learned about the mountain. We had never skied Winter Park before and here are some tips if bringing kids. The property is ski in/out. You have to walk a short distance (20 yards maybe) to ski down to the cat walk to winter park. To ski in you have to ski down the mary jane trail and you are able to ski right to the garage door if there is snow coverage on the road. Everyday we strapped our boot and skis on and headed down to WP to ski that side and only went to the Mary Jane side when wanting to go back to the house. The green runs at Winter Park are pretty flat and our kids had a hard time with them. We had to let them ski with poles for the first time because the adults got tired of waiting on them and "slinging" them with our poles. On the last day we skied, we decided to hike from the house to the Mary Jane base and just ski on that side instead of starting on the WP side. Even though that was quite a hike for a bunch of Texas folks in high altitude, it was a much better day of skiing for all of us. The kids were much less frustrated. All of our kids were intermediate skiers.
-----Overall, I would highly recommend this home. It was a wonderful experience and the owner is very hands-on. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us and letting us make wonderful memories.
We stayed at this property for 5 days over MLK weekend. It is truly a special property at Winter Park/Mary Jane. We had 4 couples and 9 children aged 7 and up staying at the house, and it was a perfect set-up. 2 bunkrooms for the kids and 4 big bedrooms for the adults, most with private baths.
The house itself is exquisite - the owners clearly care about this property and there are many touches that would be made only by an owner who actually uses the property. Not to mention the Radiant Floors! The great room is definitely “great” and a wonderful gathering place at the end of skiing. The hot tub is just outside the great room, making it all very integrated with the open gourmet kitchen and even the large dining area. There was plenty of room for us all to have a great time relaxing, playing cards, grilling and catching up.
It is a very short walk to get onto the catwalk (50 yards max) and all of our kids were able to ski back home right up to the garage door. For true beginners, any catwalk will be pretty much not possible, but it did not seem to be a problem for even our more novice skiers.
The house is in a very private enclave that many probably are not even aware exists. It has great privacy “away from it all” and is a perfect place to reconnect with old friends or family. The owner (Elena) is located nearby and gave a comprehensive tour of how to use the place, and I’m confident that if anything went wrong (which it didn’t) it would be taken care of. Elena was very easy to work with and very accommodating when we had flight cancellations on the departure. Definitely the type of person from whom you want to be renting a vacation home.
Thanks for a great vacation!
We were a family group with as many as 13 on some days. This was a perfect house for us. Six big, private bedrooms, large living area and spacious kitchen. Our many cooks were delighted by the well equipped kitchen.
As other guests have mentioned, the beds were heavenly.
Elena is a wonderful host - easy to work with and attentive to the little details that make your stay special.
Finally, ski in and ski out for all - nine year old granddaughter as well as Grandma D!
Highly recommended. Rented this property for a holiday ski trip with my parents and all my brothers and sisters and their families. Fifteen people total...and very comfortably. We could not have been more pleased. This house is an extraordinary property. A true dream home. The owners spared no expense when picking out all the features, fixtures, appliances, amenities, etc. Great floor plan for sharing with multiple families. The location also is amazing. Walking distance to Mary Jane Base or to the catwalk run that dumps you out at the main base area. We are already planning to come back next year.
We had a wonderful experience, the owners were available to show us how to use everything. The home is warm and spacious, close to the slopes. Highly recommend it.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your beautiful slopeside home. Everyone in our group had a great time. Our “chefs” enjoyed the kitchen and the whole group had a great time gathering in the great room “watching” movies (some of us may have stole a few extra winks pretending to watch).
The beds and the mattresses were a huge hit with everyone…..Temperpedic right? There have been a few requests to ask what model they were…..they certainly did the trick .
Winter Park is one of our very favorite places in the world, now we have at least one more reason to love it. Thanks to Elena and Danielle and to the late wildlife show brought to us by some neighborhood foxes. Can't wait for next year.
We are in a small private home subdivision at the base of Mary Jane. It is 250 yards down the catwalk on foot or skis to the base of Winter Park. To drive, however, one goes out the Mary Jane road to the south, and then hairpins back to the north down Hwy 40 to get to the restaurants, etc, in the town of Winter Park.
