About the property

Round House, 5 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, Sleeps 16 all on beds (no bunks, futons)

Do you want a nice place your family or friends want to come back to every year? The Round House is the home for you. It is cozy, clean, comfortable, and has amazing ambiance. It has 5 private bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. We are fortunate to have many returning guests. During the day ski the moguls at nearby Winter Park/Mary Jane Resort then take the kids tubing at the old fashion Fraser Tubing Hill. Afterwards warm up with hot cocoa by the wood fire or in the 8 person outdoor hot tub, soaking in the serene forest and meadow views. This spacious, tastefully decorated 'Round House' accommodates up to 16 people and allows multiple families, reunions or corporate retreats to experience the Fraser Valley with exceptional comfort and style. Our home has great multi-use spaces, adults can share a quiet conversation around the fire while kids play ping-pong, games, or watch TV in the downstairs family room. This level opens to a large meadow where sledding, snowman and tunnel building can entertain kids young and old for hours.

Your gathering begins in the great room, where you can enjoy the peaceful view of the forest and meadow while preparing your special recipes in the large gourmet fully-equipped kitchen. Our new table seats 10 or more plus 5 at the kitchen bar. The roundness, large expanse of glass, and warm cedar ceilings make you feel like you're part of the natural surroundings. This level also includes the master bedroom with a private bath and walk in closet, a second and third bedroom, a second full bath, and a deck with gas barbecue and summer patio seating. The sunny, lower level-walkout includes a large family room with a ping-pong table, satellite big screen TV, Blueray, game table and wet bar; plus two additional bedrooms; full bath and large laundry room with full size washer and dryer. Gaze at the bright stars from the hot tub. Summer activities includes the Winter Park base area with alpine slide, miniature golf, maze, and climbing wall; mountain biking or hiking on many close wooded marked trails, or golf at renown Pole Creek. Enjoy a Rodeo, soak at Hot Sulphur Springs or visit the quaint town of Grand Lake before hiking in famous Rocky Mountain National Park (less crowded south entrance). Devil's Thumb Resort/Spa and YMCA Snow Mountain Ranch offer fantastic restaurants and cross country ski trails. Winter Park has a great rec center with pool slide and climbing wall, fun for all ages.

Sleeping accommodations are 1 King bed (new), 4 Queen Beds, 1 full bed, 4 twin beds, and a crib. We have no futons, bunk beds, or sleeper sofas. The hot water heating system has 6 separate controls for your comfort. We are continually updating our home with furniture, bedding, towels, etc. and recently thick carpet throughout. We now have WiFi. Absolutely No Smoking or No Pets. We guarantee you will not be disappointed in your accommodations at the Round House!

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

This house is great for a large group. Plenty of beds and community space with a wood burning stove and TV area downstairs. The hot tub is obviously a great feature too! Close to downtown Fraiser and only a 10-15 minute drive to Winter Park. Great house! Definitely recommend!

very nice home with a great kitchen and dining room table.

  • 4 of 5

good location, we cross county skied to Devil's Thumb. The home was comfortable for 9 adults and only reason it did not receive 5 stars was due to only have three bathrooms.

the Kitchen had every thing in it needed to cook all our dinners! Very private hot tub.

Just perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and spacious for our family of 5 adults and four children. The kitchen allowed us to prepare or cook meals for our family. The location was convenient for going north, south, east, or west for our daily adventures and we truly enjoyed our stay. Unfortunately, we did not see the moose in the meadow on this trip. Thank you for making our vacation special.

Great place for a rendezvous with our five familes!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and hated to leave. The five bedrooms fit our five families just right, and the open gathering areas were perfect for games or catching up. The view from the large windows was peaceful overlooking the meadow, and the deck was a great place to sit and relax. The hot tub made for a pleasant moonlit soak, and we all enjoyed fixing meals in the large kitchen area. All in all a wonderful time and we'll definitely look into a return visit!

Fraser Tubing Hill is a blast after a day of skiing. Hiking or driving in Rocky Mountain National Park (south entrance is less crowded) is a must in the summer with ice cream and shopping in Grand Lake afterwards. Relax in Sulphur Hot Springs, or kids can enjoy swimming and rock climbing wall at the Rec Center only 3.8 miles away, or bowling and wood fired pizza at the new 'Foundry' while adults take in a movie. There are so many great things to do which are close by: Snowshoeing, Cross Country skiing, Mountain biking, Relaxing, Reading, lots of Fun with Friends and Family!
