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.

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.

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.

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!

WONDERFUL TIME AT CRAGLOUGH HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at the Craglough House and we all said we wished we could have stayed longer. Sitting on one of the balconies in the morning and watching the sun come up was a treat. Your wife has done a beautiful job in decorating the house, loved looking at all the various items in the various rooms, and you have the right person taking care of the property, Krista is very professional, friendly and informative. If we do return to CO we would love to go back to your house. Thank you again!

AMAZING WINTER PARK SKI TRIP HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
The house was awesome!! Nice and clean when we arrived and we recieved a full introduction to the house and were shown how everything works. Tons of parking available and the mudroom keeps everything dry and clean. Short drive to the Winter Park ski resort and Safeway and gas stations are super close as well. This house handles large groups with ease and everyone got their own bathroom. Gourmet kitchen, 2 huge dining tables, great views, speakers in every room with iPod hookup, and decks everywhere made dining in a blast. No need to leave the house if you don't want to. We watched coyotes play and hunt in the meadow and drove past 3 moose several times on the road below. House is huge, comfy, and warm, and the peace and quiet it offers is therapeutic. Would rent this house again anytime. Thanks for the great hospitality and great memories!!!

HOW GREAT CRAGLOUGH IS FOR GETTING AWAY

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed at Craglough once or twice a year for the last 12 years and have never though of posting something on VRBO about how great Craglough is for getting away from our day-to-day world. First of all the house is fantastic with each bedroom with its own bathroom. Even when you stay with a group you still have the privacy of your own home. Second, the house design gives you great view from every room and the location of the mud room on the front side of the house keeps the house clean after a day of hiking. And finally, from Craglough's front door you can reach 100 trail heads either by walking up the road or a short car trip.
