About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)


If you book 5 or more nights with us - you will receive a $100 Visa Gift Card.


We know that hard times have hit most every family. But - we also know you may just need a vacation to get away from it all - and enjoy yourselves. We also know that our rates are the lowest of any 3 bedroom Beaver Village unit listed - and actually compete with several 2 bedroom unit rates. Simply put - we are the best deal out there for what you get !!!!

Location was important to us, and our condo has it over most. It is nestled in the pines, in the most secluded area of Beaver Village. During the ski season, Beaver Village's own free shuttle bus will pick you up right at our door, deliver you right to the base lifts, and bring you home at the end of the day. With town only a block away, and only one and a half miles to the ski hill, THIS CONDO HAS IT ALL!

Although this unit is located on the third (top) floor of the building, it actually is only two and a half flights of stairs. Our unit is spacious yet has a very cozy feeling. Being on the top floor offers the added luxury of vaulted ceilings with skylights. The bright afternoon sun beaming through the skylight will remove any chill one may have after a morning of fresh tracks.

Another wonderful feature is the thermostatically controlled gas fireplace. With the stone fireplace, and the rough sawn cedar paneling, it is hard not to imagine curling up on the couch to read a good book, watch a movie, or just sit and gaze out into the Arapaho Forest.

There is no lack of sleeping arrangements in our home away from home. The master bedroom has a king-size bed and its own private bath. The other two bedrooms share a bathroom. One guest room has a queen-size bed, and the back bedroom has two sets of bunk beds, each featuring a full-size bottom bed, with a twin upper. New 11-2016, is a queen size sofa sleeper in the living room. With the ability to sleep ten to twelve, this makes our condo a great unit for large families, or even two separate families. There is also a door in the hallway so that the back two bedrooms can be closed off to allow more privacy.

We also offer FREE WIRELESS internet - for those who can't leave home without their laptops. Sit right at the kitchen table and get on-line to check email - and send all your freinds a note telling them what a wonderful time you are having in Winter Park. Even check out the resorts daily snow report and weather - so you can be prepared before you leave for a day on the slopes.

The club house is for every one of our guests to use. It has a huge indoor pool, with three adjacent hot tubs and a sauna. The club house/pool area is relaxing also. It is maintained second to none. The laundry and game room are also in the club house.

In our condo, you will find a few added features. We have made certain there is a flat screen TV/DVD and cable in each bedroom. There are wall mounted hair dryers in the bathrooms also. The kitchen boasts new oak cabinetry, new granite countertop, new flooring, and has everything anyone would need to cook a simple or complex gourmet meal. We hope you can see that there is no lack of any conveniences. We have made a point of adding MANY electrical outlets to our unit, so everyone can plug in their phones and tablets ! Our bathrooms have been just recently tiled.


* Our rates are 60% less than commercial rates.

* There is a $170 cleaning/service fee per rental.

* Pets are NOT allowed and No Smoking.

So, whether you are planning on a winter trip to enjoy the world-class skiing, or coming out to Fraser Valley to bike and hike, we sincerely hope you will stay with us, save some money, and enjoy all we and Winter Park have to offer! We have several return renters every year. Our unit has become their home away from home also !!!!!! JOIN IN ON THE FUN..........

About Carol Foss

Hi - we are Jim and Carol Foss from Fridley Minnesota. After several years of family ski trips while our sons were growing up, we realized that Winter Park was in our blood. We purchased our unit - on 9-11 !!!! It truly has been the best decision we have made. Now that our sons are grown - we seem to use it even more. Our oldest son lives in Denver - so we enjoy going out to Winter Park and have our visits there. Our one son even honeymooned in our unit. There have been business trips as well as 'The whole gang' trips out mostly for skiing. Summer is great also - and we just love the fall. We share out unit with all our friends - and we love to show them around. Winter Park is a wonderful place - heck - we may even decide to move out there one day. We always joke about how 'thick' the air is here in Minnesota - and how 'flat' the land is. Colorado has captured our hearts - and we hope you will come, stay with us, and see if you get bitten like we did.

Carol Foss purchased this condo in 2001

Why Carol Foss chose Winter Park

Beaver Village is what we consider the best property in Winter Park. The units are beautiful, the club house is second to none - and pool and hot tubs are just perfect. We stayed at several different complexes before we purchased our unit. When we did decide to buy - it simply was a 'no brainer' for us - we thought it had everything to offer. Although it is large - you simple don't feel overwhelmed with the resort. Being tucked away in the woods is a perfect touch.

What makes this condo unique

A common thought when people are deciding to visit Winter Park is 'What is there to do for 4 days?' Well - let me tell you - the list is endless. Skiing - including cross country skiing, snow shoeing, snowmobiling, sledding, skating, hiking, fishing, boating, white water rafting...

on and on. Winter Park is busy year 'round. There is something for everyone at every skill level.

Rocky Mountain National Park is only a 35 minute drive - and that is worth the drive. We never stop going up to the Park - you never see the same thing twice. The summer weather is great - but it will rain every day for just a few minutes. Winter - well - snow happens !!!! Up to 600 inches a year is pretty normal. It can get cold - but nothing like the cold of Minnesota and Wisconsin !!!!

We are here to help you plan a great vacation - so please do not hesitate to ask us anything.

As anyone who knows us will say 'Winter Park is our HAPPY PLACE' - and it truly is.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to let you know that my wife and I , and our family members, had a very pleasant stay in your WP Condominium. We drove up there from Denver for several nights before the Thankgiving Holiday. While we did not go skiing this time, we did get outdoors in the snow for seveal walks and several times at a kids playground in downtown Winter Park. And, we enjoyed the resort swimming pool and hot tub. Your condo was nicely decorated, met all of our needs, and was reasonably priced. We certainly will remembver this the next time we plan a stay in Winter Park.

Great location away from the main steet, big condo, lots of space

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Pine cone retreat for labor day weekend with our friends. We were 7 adults and the spacious condo was very comfortable for the number of people. The kitchen was extremely well equipped: We enjoyed cooking more than one meal for seven people. Only negative point: The master bath had obviously not been cleaned (which was immediately fixed after a call to the owners) and the overall cleanliness of the condo did not reflect the cleaning fee which we found a bit exaggerated. Highly recommended for location and floor plan!

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved your condo. It was so home-y and accommodating. Having the whole kitchen set up was awesome when trying to save money by not eating out every night. Our group of 10 had plenty of room to relax, sleep, and play some board games! Had a blast! Would recommend this condo to anyone wanting to stay in the Winterpark area!
