About William or Joyce Carpenter
Craglough House was built by Bill and Joyce Carpenter as their dream home. Joyce is a social worker in the Social Work Department at the University of South Florida. Bill is a professor and chairman of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. The house is modeled on Cragside, a Victorian mansion in Northern England. David Elfring, a renown archtect, captured the spirit of Cragside but with modern conveniences.
Why William or Joyce Carpenter chose Tabernash
Joyce and I fell in love with Colorado many years ago. We spent several years looking for the perfect spot. We found the current location in the early 1980s and then proceeded to buy all the land we could afford. By 1997, we had aquired 80 acres and then started house construction. Improving the road, bringing in electricity, telephone, and building the house were epic tasks. You will enjoy the products of the effort.

Great house on the mountain
We had a great time spending a week at this house. Although we had a party of 14, we did not feel crowded at all. The view was spectacular and the amenities were plentiful. The on-site caretaker was attentive without being obtrusive. The house is very close to Winter Park and other small towns with lots of things to do. The bottom line is that it was a great place to stay, and we would recommend it highly to others. If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would!
Wow! This place did not disappoint. Great views, accommodations and a fantastic week in Tabernash.
Beautiful view. Perfect having each bedroom with its own bathroom. Gorgeous views.
Plenty of dishes, silverware and cookware. We had everything we needed. Our family of 10 easily sat at the dinner and kitchen tables for meals. We enjoyed the decks immensely and the scenery. Couldn't have asked for more.
Beautiful mountain house - perfect for everyone who stayed
Great property for a large group.
We had a wonderful time, the property is gorgeous. Property management was very responsive. Would definitely rent this house again.
The caretaker was the very best you can have. He made our stay enjoyable.
