About William or Joyce Carpenter

Craglough House was built by Bill and Joyce Carpenter as their dream home. Joyce is a social worker in the Social Work Department at the University of South Florida. Bill is a professor and chairman of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. The house is modeled on Cragside, a Victorian mansion in Northern England. David Elfring, a renown archtect, captured the spirit of Cragside but with modern conveniences.

Why William or Joyce Carpenter chose Tabernash

Joyce and I fell in love with Colorado many years ago. We spent several years looking for the perfect spot. We found the current location in the early 1980s and then proceeded to buy all the land we could afford. By 1997, we had aquired 80 acres and then started house construction. Improving the road, bringing in electricity, telephone, and building the house were epic tasks. You will enjoy the products of the effort.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a lovely vacation/anniversary celebration we enjoyed in your wonderful home. Our entire family fell in love with Craglough and all were sad when it was their time to leave for the Denver airport. Keith and I stayed until Wednesday morning and truthfully, yours was the first home we have rented over the years that we didn't want to leave before our time was up. Everything was furnished and appointed beautifully, the kitchen was beyond compare and we couldn't have been more comfortable. So, thank you!



Krista was very helpful and we appreciated the fact that she was there if we needed anything. Turned out we didn't, but we knew she would help if needed.

Please feel free to use our comments. They just didn't say enough good about how comfortable we were. The design of your home was one of the best we've been in and we've been in many. How blessed you are to have this wonderful place to visit and eventually live in.

Marvelous Home

  • 5 of 5
Aloha to you and Mahalo Nui Loa. Thank you so much for providing such a marvelous home for our family. We gathered from the east coast, the north country of Minnesota, California, Hawaii, and Denver, Colorado. It was a blessing to be together to bid a fond farewell to husband, father, grandfather, and brother-in-law. We loved hearing the trains go by and viewing the marmots at play outside. This was a perfect setting for a much memorable week!

Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5
Our family had an amazing experience here!! Bringing fourteen people together for a week was quite fun! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with all of us. So many memories were made this week. Now as some of us go to Denver and some travel back to Alabama, we can look at pictures and discuss all the great experiences we had here! Thank you again.

Had an AWESOME stay at Craglough in Tabernash!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had an absolute blast on our Winter Park spring break 2014 vacation!!! Our communication with owners/caretaker was perfect and very thorough. We had a big group and the house was certainly accommodating! We skied three days and the weather was perfect. The hot tub was great after a long day on the slopes. We cooked in the awesome kitchen two of the four nights. It was very clean when we arrived and we left it very clean when we left. I would definitely recommend this place and hope to return in the future. One thing I would recommend for anyone planning this home is a four wheel drive vehicle, as it snowed several inches one of the nights/days and the drive to get there can get a little hairy.... Thanks again!

New Year's Week Winter Vacation

New Year's Week Winter Vacation
  • 5 of 5
Every year our large group of family and friends rents a house together over the New Year's week and Craglough by far has been the most luxurious house with the best stocked kitchen and household basics.The owners were very helpful and kind in preparing us for our stay and during our time there, the caretaker was very accomodating, especially in helping us when our car got stuck! The large kitchen table was great for the kids and the adjoining dining room for the grown-ups made meals pleasant and easy. Beautifully furnished everywhere, it is truly a showcase home. The kids loved watching the trains in the distance and the snowy landscape was so picturesque. Skiing at Granby Ranch, Winter Park and a sleigh ride and activities at YMCA were all within easy access. This was a gorgeous home for our winter holiday!
