Overview

Winter Park House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-14)

Read our 5 Star reviews! 5 separate sleeping areas.

No other home has this Incredible, 0ne-of-a-kind setting! Unbelievable Views of forest and streams. This Beautiful, comfortable 3000 sq ft mountain home is surrounded by the Arapaho National Forest - Nestled in Woods - yet within the city limits of Winter Park and only 1 mile to town. You get privacy AND convenience!

Two Sparkling, Pristine Mountain Streams flow through the secluded back yard and the amazing 10x40 ft deck overlooks both streams. Kids love to walk on the rocks and wade in the streams, not to mention go fishing!

Step out the back door into the National Forest onto miles of cross-country skiing and snowshoe trails in winter, and mountain bike, hiking, and nature trails in the summer. They begin right at the property line! Don't be surprised if you see a moose in the yard--winter or summer--we have!

Our home is Bright, with many large windows, offering stunning views of forest and streams from every room--even while watching the 47' flat screen TV! The kitchen, of course, is well stocked, including crock pot, blender, griddle etc. We have tried to think of everything you need to be comfortable. New carpet and paint throughout. It is perfect for families and has 3 separate gathering areas so the kids and teens can each have their own space.

Relax in the 8-person hot tub with beautiful views located at stream's edge. The antique spiral staircase and bannister in the loft are from a 19th century Opera House.

Our private vacation home is just one block to free ski shuttle pick-up and 6 minutes drive to the world renown Winter Park Ski Resort! In summer the resort has many fun activities such as climbing wall, alpine slide and mini-golf.

We have an outdoor basketball hoop for summer, and have provided several older bikes for your use as well as well as sleds for winter.

You also have full access to the brand new Fraser Recreation Center (if you can tear yourselves away from all there is to do at our home and property). This is a wonderful facility. It includes a steam room, sauna, heated indoor pool, water slide, lazy river, basketball and volleyball courts, mountain climbing wall, weight room and full aerobic workout facility. Passes are available for $8-11/person/all day. Go to fraservalleyrec.org for a full description.

Sleeping arrangements are as follows: Master bedroom and bedroom #2 have king-size beds; bedroom #3 has 2 single beds, bedroom #4 has 2 single beds plus queen sofa-bed. Bedroom 5 (30 ft loft) has 2 single beds. Beds have cozy down comforters.

Your perfect Mountain Retreat is waiting for you!!

Feb 2002"We loved it! Great house, lots of room! We’d like to come back & see it in the summer."Feb 2002"Our family have been to several rental homes & we consider this as one of the best. We want to thank you sincerely for sharing your nice house. We especially enjoyed the hot tub. Hope to be back sometime."Mar 2002"We are two families from Dallas, TX area. We found your home outstanding. The scene from the living area is hard to beat. Many happy memories of the skiing and the evenings in this house. The photos of the forest covered with new snow may help us to deal with the 100 degree days of our tropical summer in TX. Hope to be back!”July 2002“Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We spent many hours on the deck enjoying the solitude of the streams and also much time was spent in your fabulous hot tub.

Winter Stay 2015

  • 4 of 5

Had a nice mid winter 5 night stay with old chums and this place works well !

Quiet winter hodeaway with lots of bedding options and a good hot tub.

Like most rentals the beds are getting squishy and the kitchenware

is a bit wornout but nothing out of the ordinary and I would

recommend it to others. Thanks !

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for the week of Christmas and it was absolutely wonderful! We had nine adults, two teenagers, and three children (including a two year old). We have stayed in many properties around the country and I have to say that this is one of my favorites. We went snowboarding and skiing, swimming at the rec center, rode on a sleigh ride, tubing, went to a movie (awesome theater), saw the torch light parade at the ski area. My niece took her kids to see Santa in the village. There is so much to do in the Winter Park area and this is the perfect place to stay. It is very private and quiet. The streams are soothing. We actually arrived during a severe snowstorm and it continued to snow every day while we were there, but it just added to the whole experience. Jenny was so remarkable to deal with in every way. I would call her if I had any questions and she was always very helpful. We made memories that will last a lifetime and are so thankful to Jenny for sharing her home with our family. She even had a Christmas tree that our kids were able to put up and it was beautiful. We hope to be returning guests at this wonderful place. It is warm and the scenic view from the house is breathtaking. I would go upstairs to sit in the loft and drink coffee and just look out at the beautiful forest and the snow coming down. The kids loved it and had plenty of room. The house has everything you need. We took full advantage of the hot tub! The kids room is stocked with all kinds of games, movies, TV, etc. Thanks again Jenny!!! This was an amazing experience!

Owner's Response: Wow! You really packed in a lot during your week. Thanks so much for the great review! We love that there are many options for fun, both in the immediate town and area, and at the house. I learned something from your review--that Santa comes to town!! What more could you ask for?! You are welcome back anytime! Jenny

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

Six nights, eight adults, five children ranging 2-6 - PERFECT! Photos do not capture the size and spacious feeling of the house. Plenty of room to spread out and very well insulated. Trails right behind the house to explore with the little ones, and of course more serious snow sports all around. Breathtaking scenery. GO!!

So Much More Amazing Than Pictured!

  • 5 of 5

We had a quick extended weekend trip for fall break and we are in LOVE! The pictures do not do this place justice. Owners were helpful, responsive and wonderful. The house was perfect for two traveling families with kids. The grounds were majestic and it was still warm enough to open up the patio doors and kitchen windows to listen to the water from the streams.

The house was equipped with everything and more that we would have needed. We will definitely be back!

BEST family vacation! Maximum privacy & comfort!

  • 5 of 5

I could write a book on the joys of staying here! I wrote an extremely long review before noticing there were limited characters! So, had to throw that out... but to sum up:

PERFECT! Comfortable, private, clean, well-stocked, nicely appointed, and owners EASY to work with!

Privacy was the key here. We loved it!

Great Wi-Fi! Had our teen daughter with us, and that is a must! :)

Great trails nearby. Water surrounds the back and side. Spa tub is the best we've ever used in our many vacations.

Enjoyed the hummingbird encounters tremendously - they were literally eating while sitting on our hands! THAT was amazing!

Starry nights are the clearest here! No noise disturbances!!

Recommend Rudi's Deli - good, healthy food. We did not like DeAntonio's though (food or staff).

Description is FULLY accurate! I would recommend this to anyone!

Spa Tub was the biggest, cleanest, most well-maintained I had ever seen! Kudos!

Most stars I've ever encountered! Shooting starts numerous also!

I love all creatures, but for those of you who aren't as fond of them, we did not see anything of concern even once - i.e. mountain lion, bear... any "biters" :) Loads of birds! Ravens, crows, hummingbirds (numerous!!), chipmunks, ground squirrels, enough to make the nature part so much fun to watch and take photographs of!

Zip-lining, white-water rafting, horseback riding, the Zephyr train to Glenwood Springs... ALL within an hour or less of beautiful, scenic driving!

You won't regret staying here. My only regrets were 1) not finding this place sooner, and 2) having to leave! It was PERFECT!

The waterfalls, boulders, clear water was so wonderful, I could write an entire review on this alone! The roar of the water - ahhh!!

Jenny was fabulous! I mean this in every way! Friendly, accommodating, professional. Answered questions quickly! Maintenance person nearby town - we were never disturbed though!

Being on the edge of the National Forest was an experience all its own. You feel like you own the world for a little while :)

There are SO many things we absolutely adored about this home and its location. If there are ANY questions I might be able to answer for you, please contact me!

We will be coming back again! There were only three of us this time, but the house is large enough to accommodate our 6 kids and family! Fantastic!

Thank you for reading my review. I do hope it helps make your decision to stay here the perfect choice! :)

Owner's Response: Thank you, Sheila, for your very comprehensive review. We couldn't be happier that you had a wonderful time! We also love that our home is so private with the beautiful streams and immediate access to the National Forest, yet is also so close to town and adventurous activities in the area too. Hope you come again. Jenny
