Guests #1 comment after stay: 'Your home is better in person than the pictures online. We love your home!' No doubt you have picked the right location for your Colorado Adventure! There’s no place quite like Grand County Colorado! Make the most of your vacation by staying in this tastefully furnished 3,300 sf log home with big views and 3 levels for living and relaxing during your visit. The Talley Ho Ski Haus is a milled, log home nestled in the woods with endless views of the surrounding mountains and unmatched trail access directly from your home for biking and hiking. The great room / dining room combo boasts vaulted ceilings with tongue & groove architecture throughout, and pine wood beams and floor to ceiling windows--that keep this home comfy/cozy year round. The Ski Haus comfortably sleeps 10-12. I would like to keep the max at 12. Small to medium dogs considered, so please include a description or picture of your family pet with your inquiry. Kenneling your furry friend while you are away is even better!
This was a second home for the past 3.5 years, and the first time the Ski Haus has ever been a rental property. The lovely family I bought it from built it and lived here year-round with their two young daughters. They put in the commercial grade kids slide from the 1st floor down to the basement! You won’t see that anywhere else I don't suspect. You will be delighted by the amenities, and I think you will want to come back again and again after your first visit. At least that’s what all my friends and recent guests have said. There’s so much to do in Grand County that we hope you’ll check it all out--all 4 seasons.
A little about the Talley Ho Ski Haus: There’s a 3-car garage with plenty of storage for your skis and boards, mountain/road bikes, and you could even park a snowmobile or 4-wheeler since the national forest is just down the road --where outdoor enthusiasts like to venture out. The main level has a large foyer with space to remove your ski gear and a large closet to store your gear for the next day (ski rack in garage). The kitchen, dining and great room are open to one large gathering space for entertaining and family dinners. The large dining table is also expandable, with a pullout extension on each end. There are 2 bedrooms and a large bathroom with double sinks, water closet, and tub/shower combo on the main level. This bathroom has the main linen closet where you will find everything you need during your stay. The master suite takes up the entire 2nd level. As you climb the stairs you will have an open loft with magnificent views before entering the bedroom through French doors. This bedroom, large bath, and walk-in closet may cause you and your guests to draw straws or flip a coin to see who parks their suitcase up there! The master bath has a granite counter top with double sinks, a large soaker tub, shower, and water closet. Heading down the stairs to the basement you will find a family room and laundry room to one side, and a bedroom, kid’s play room with a twin over full bunkbed, and a full bath. This bath has a large pedestal sink, water closet, and tub/shower combo. And there’s one more space I like to call the Adult’s “Getaway” Room. Get away from the kids to read a book, cozy up to the fireplace, or watch the big game! I think you will be happy in this bonus room above the garage, and more big views to boot! Hopefully the photos will be inviting enough to send me an inquiry about your next vacation, as I’m happy to answer any and all questions you may have about Grand County and Winter Park Resort.

There are many great restaurants in Winter Park, Fraser, and Tabernash. Here’s a short list of my favorites, but look through the menu guide I've left for you to get a complete list:

About Tamara Higgins
Hello! Thanks for viewing my property today. I'm retired from the Air Force, traveled the world, and I finished up my military service in Colorado Springs. I consider myself lucky to live in Colorado and look forward to sharing my home in the mountains with you. I'm currently pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree in Interior Design at the Art Institute of Colorado in downtown Denver. I've always had a passion for design and architecture. Plenty of books in the house to make that point pretty clear!
Tamara Higgins purchased this house in 2011
Why Tamara Higgins chose Tabernash
Winter Park is the best mountain town for skiing and hiking! And it's so easy to get to from Denver, DIA, or other Colorado towns...they call it the locals mountain. When you travel, do you prefer to feel like you're in a time share resort or a quaint little town? If you want that small town feeling with a big ski/board mountain, you'll absolutely love Winter Park and Fraser! If you mountain bike or enjoy hiking then the Spring thru Fall season is a must. This house is located near a great trail system. I'm discovering new trails every time I go for a bike ride. Puts a huge smile on my face, and I feel lucky to have this home in Fraser.
What makes this house unique
We selected this house for it's views, privacy, and excellent floor plan. I've put my own touches on it with the furnishings/decor and I've replaced the carpet and installed new granite countertops in the kitchen and master bath. I think you'll feel right at home! Your feedback is greatly appreciated so I can continue to make this a home you come back to every year! I have a guest book at the house and a 3-ring binder with room to add comments and 'nice-to-haves' for future visits so I can keep making my home a touch better with each guest!
