We fell in love with Colorado's crisp clean air, crystal blue skies, wildlife and laid back pace as children. Our dream mountain get-a-way was realized in 2006 capturing the grandeur, nature and comfort of Colorado. The lot is 1 acre with glorious views of the ski area and the surrounding Rocky Mountains. We have seen foxes sleeping in our back yard and moose grazing on our landscaping. We believe that you will be delighted by our accommodations and appointments. Spacious and open are the finished 4000+ square feet of living area. We are located an easy 15 minutes from the ski area, and just 100 yards from miles of wilderness trails. You will find games, 62' Plasma TV, a distributed sound system, movies, hot tubbing and books to help you wind down from your custom tailored day.

Our family loves the mountains with all of the beauty and sports they have to offer year round. Our children started skiing when they were 5 and now as college students they ski like their daredevil father. The variety of activities with summer boating on Grand Lake, white water rafting, hot sulfur springs, hiking, biking fishing, just scratches the surface of summer then on to winter where limitations are self imposed. We have found the mountains a perfect place to un-wind our whirl wind schedules and spend quality time with family and friends.
Ed Villanyi purchased this house in 2006
My husband is an avid skier and has tackled the toughest terrain in the USA. We chose Winter Park as our skiing home base for the consistent quality of their ski conditions, the variety of trails, the excellent ski school for family and friends, and the close proximity to the Denver airport. It is less than a 2 hour drive from terminal to our front door.
This home is spacious and warm. Thirty foot great room ceiling with extensive beam and timber framework, connects with dinner area and gourmet kitchen to provide premier entertainment environment. Through the southern facing wall of glass is a million dollar view of Winter Park Ski area and surrounding mountain range. Home has ten foot ceilings on first floor and are vaulted even higher on the second floor. Outside is a oversize deck providing front row access to endless views. Watching the sun come over the mountains in morning with coffee in the Hot tub is my favorite. Everything is this home was designed on a grand and elegant scale.
Wow! What a special gem you have! Your house is the "Tops"- from the layout (love the mudroom), to the decor, to the amenities (rubes + slippers for the jacuzzi!), to the amazing view, we had an amazing time and are sad to leave. There were 10 of us here from Maryland (5 former Coloradoans) and we had a blast skiing. We also took a snow mobile tour up the Continental Divide, saw a mama moose and her baby along the way. We lucked out with the awesome weather and are leaving with wonderful memories in out hears and minds. Thank you for the privaledge of staying here. We hope to be back someday.
This home was perfect for our family. We had 14 adults and there was plenty of room for all. The house is fantastic. When you first arrive and take in the view of Winter Park Ski Area and mountains in the background you want to stay forever. The kitchen was wonderful. It has everything you need to prepare a dinner for all. The equipment was all in working order and there were serving pieces for all occasions. It was a warm gathering place for everyone. The living room and all the TV and DVD equipment was great. Plenty of room for all to enjoy. There are two Master Bedrooms and 3 other bedrooms. All couches pull out to accommodate everyone. The furnishings are all first class - very beautiful. We loved the Hot Tub. The 3 car garage was good to have. The home was very clean and very welcoming. We hope to return next year.
Our family of 12 just spent Christmas at this beautiful home near Winter Park. Ages ranged from 18 to 78. Plenty of sleeping space and bathrooms for all. The great room is open to the kitchen/dining area for everyone to be together and all bedrooms have private sitting areas for alone time if needed. We had everything we needed in the kitchen for cooking fabulous Christmas Eve and Christmas Day meals. The amenities are tremendous with a hot tub, games, sled, videos, heated boot warmers (wow!), heated floors, and all kinds of nice touches. And for your outdoor Colorado vacation, snowshoeing/cross-country skiing trails, skating, skiing/snowboarding, tubing, are all either within walking distance (trails) or a 5-10 minute car ride away. We took advantage of them all. The homeowner made himself readily available for questions and responded very quickly to all emails. Couldn't have been easier. Thank you Ed and Laura. You will NOT be disappointed by treating yourself to this beautiful getaway.
We had a family reunion in the mountains with 12 people, ranging in age from 12-66. Five of the kids were teens. When we arrived at the home, our hopes for a magnificent place to stay were granted. This place is spectacular!
The owners have taken great care to make sure that their guests enjoy the house to the fullest. Every room is decorated with simple, elegant taste. The kitchen is a dream to work in…the views will distract you though! The highlight of the house is the living area with floor to ceiling windows that give you a view across the mountains to the Winter Park ski runs. What a perfect place to sip coffee, warm yourself by the fire and watch the sky change in color.
Our teens greatly enjoyed the movies, X-box, flat screen TV's, lower level game room and the Jacuzzi, but most of all they loved experiencing the great outdoors. They used the sled that was provided for them in the heated garage every day.
Getting groceries is easy with a Safeway nearby, and the restaurants are very good. We never had a bad meal.
I cannot imagine a better place to take in a winter scene than this mountain home. Our family hopes to return to it for a future stay.
We had a wonderful time staying at your home in Fraser this holiday weekend. We have stayed in dozens of VRBO homes all over the world over the last dozen or so years and yours has been the best so far. It not only is an amazing home with an unbelievable view, it is very well appointed and your instructions and tips made it a super easy stay. This is the first time we have ever stayed in a VRBO home where literally EVERYTHING we needed was already in the home! The whole family agreed that when we go back to Winter Park, we’d like to stay at your home.
My husband and I, along with two other couples, stayed in this magnificent home for a long weekend getaway. From the moment we walked in, we were awed by the scale, craftsmanship of construction and overall quality of this home. The house is immaculate, the furnishings are top quality, any the owners have amazing taste in decor that captures the true spirit of a mountain home. The kitchen has everything one could possibly want. The photos can't capture the size, scale and true beauty of this property... I just can't say enough about how amazing this home is! Ed was great to work with and we hope to return again in the near future.
What a gem this place was! The house is beautifully maintained, clean, spacious and close to many activities. We had two families in the house for a total of 8. The kids enjoyed the outdoors while the adults took in the scenery on the balcony with a glass of wine. The house is more beautiful than the photos! The owners are responsive and very easy to work with. The house is close to a number of activities that we enjoyed, including the alpine slide at Winter Park, hiking at Rocky Mountain National Park, horseback riding and shopping. We enjoyed cooking at the home, but also went to several of the restaurants on the owners' favorite restaurant list. We recommend this home to people of all ages and look forward to coming back in the future. Thank you!
