About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-14)

Read our 5 Star reviews! 5 separate sleeping areas.

No other home has this Incredible, 0ne-of-a-kind setting! Unbelievable Views of forest and streams. This Beautiful, comfortable 3000 sq ft mountain home is surrounded by the Arapaho National Forest - Nestled in Woods - yet within the city limits of Winter Park and only 1 mile to town. You get privacy AND convenience!

Two Sparkling, Pristine Mountain Streams flow through the secluded back yard and the amazing 10x40 ft deck overlooks both streams. Kids love to walk on the rocks and wade in the streams, not to mention go fishing!

Step out the back door into the National Forest onto miles of cross-country skiing and snowshoe trails in winter, and mountain bike, hiking, and nature trails in the summer. They begin right at the property line! Don't be surprised if you see a moose in the yard--winter or summer--we have!

Our home is Bright, with many large windows, offering stunning views of forest and streams from every room--even while watching the 47' flat screen TV! The kitchen, of course, is well stocked, including crock pot, blender, griddle etc. We have tried to think of everything you need to be comfortable. New carpet and paint throughout. It is perfect for families and has 3 separate gathering areas so the kids and teens can each have their own space.

Relax in the 8-person hot tub with beautiful views located at stream's edge. The antique spiral staircase and bannister in the loft are from a 19th century Opera House.

Our private vacation home is just one block to free ski shuttle pick-up and 6 minutes drive to the world renown Winter Park Ski Resort! In summer the resort has many fun activities such as climbing wall, alpine slide and mini-golf.

We have an outdoor basketball hoop for summer, and have provided several older bikes for your use as well as well as sleds for winter.

You also have full access to the brand new Fraser Recreation Center (if you can tear yourselves away from all there is to do at our home and property). This is a wonderful facility. It includes a steam room, sauna, heated indoor pool, water slide, lazy river, basketball and volleyball courts, mountain climbing wall, weight room and full aerobic workout facility. Passes are available for $8-11/person/all day. Go to for a full description.

Sleeping arrangements are as follows: Master bedroom and bedroom #2 have king-size beds; bedroom #3 has 2 single beds, bedroom #4 has 2 single beds plus queen sofa-bed. Bedroom 5 (30 ft loft) has 2 single beds. Beds have cozy down comforters.

Your perfect Mountain Retreat is waiting for you!!

Fantastic spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 11 stayed in the house and had a great time. The beautiful streams flowing under the deck were just what we needed to unwind and we enjoyed the nearby hiking trails. The house was secluded, clean and spacious. We enjoyed spending time in the big living room, on the deck and in the hot tub. Richard was a wonderful host and responded quickly to our questions. Would definitely recommend!

Wonderful Choice!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this wonderful home to celebrate our 40th Anniversary with our kids and grandkids and it was an awesome choice!! We loved the quiet location and watching and listening to the streams from the deck. Although they were a little cool, the grandkids loved playing in the streams. The trails behind the house were lots of fun and beautiful. Our family enjoys geocaching together and found a great one on the trails. The hot tub was a hit with the whole bunch of fourteen, ranging from ages 4 to 60. The kids enjoyed the many games in the house, Lincoln logs, train set, basketball goal as well as the Netflix. The house had plenty of room for all of us and was very well furnished and the kitchen had everything we needed. With our large group, the washer and dryer was wonderful to have. Our granddaughter took advantage of the hummingbird feeder, provided in the home, which we all enjoyed. We highly recommend the Frazier Rec Center if you have children, as well as the Alpine sledding and summer tubing. Jenny was an awesome host, giving tips for shopping and things to do and even helped us find a photographer in order for us to have family pictures made in the mountains for our special occasion. Anyone choosing this home for some time away, will be forever grateful for their choice!!! We certainly hope to come again very soon!!!

Secluded, spacious and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 10 people, 5 couples in all. The weather was beautiful even when it wasn't. The deck overlooking the river and the hot tub were massive and pleasant. Hiking trails right off the house were awesome! Place was away from neighbors and provided the seclusion we were looking for. There are lots of clever little additions in the house and you can tell the owners put a lot of their character in. The kitchen had everything we could need and the grill was great. Big beautiful gas fireplace. Walking distance to town. Just beautiful! Thanks for the awesome weekend!!

Winter Stay 2015

  • 4 of 5

Had a nice mid winter 5 night stay with old chums and this place works well !

Quiet winter hodeaway with lots of bedding options and a good hot tub.

Like most rentals the beds are getting squishy and the kitchenware

is a bit wornout but nothing out of the ordinary and I would

recommend it to others. Thanks !

Our family stayed here for the week of Christmas and it was absolutely wonderful! We had nine adults, two teenagers, and three children (including a two year old). We have stayed in many properties around the country and I have to say that this is one of my favorites. We went snowboarding and skiing, swimming at the rec center, rode on a sleigh ride, tubing, went to a movie (awesome theater), saw the torch light parade at the ski area. My niece took her kids to see Santa in the village. There is so much to do in the Winter Park area and this is the perfect place to stay. It is very private and quiet. The streams are soothing. We actually arrived during a severe snowstorm and it continued to snow every day while we were there, but it just added to the whole experience. Jenny was so remarkable to deal with in every way. I would call her if I had any questions and she was always very helpful. We made memories that will last a lifetime and are so thankful to Jenny for sharing her home with our family. She even had a Christmas tree that our kids were able to put up and it was beautiful. We hope to be returning guests at this wonderful place. It is warm and the scenic view from the house is breathtaking. I would go upstairs to sit in the loft and drink coffee and just look out at the beautiful forest and the snow coming down. The kids loved it and had plenty of room. The house has everything you need. We took full advantage of the hot tub! The kids room is stocked with all kinds of games, movies, TV, etc. Thanks again Jenny!!! This was an amazing experience!

Owner's Response: Wow! You really packed in a lot during your week. Thanks so much for the great review! We love that there are many options for fun, both in the immediate town and area, and at the house. I learned something from your review--that Santa comes to town!! What more could you ask for?! You are welcome back anytime! Jenny
