About Eric

Work hard...then head for the Winter Park Colorado to test your abilities with some of the best winter skiing and summer mountain biking in the United States. Then, simply relax at the end of the day with all the comforts of home :-)

Michelle and I are both work in information technology and know what it means to need to disconnect for a weekend of fun and relaxation. This is our home away from home. We've outfitted the house accordingly!

Hi speed broadband Internet and Wifi throughout the house. Surround sound for catching up on movies and cable with HBO and Cinemax with a great stone fireplace stocked with wood make for great laid back nights after a hard day on the slopes.

Winter Park/Mary Jane skiing is a world class winter ski and snowboarding experience. In the summer, the resort turns into world class mountain biking while the town of Winter Park boasts a top notch summer concert series, arts and events schedule.

Our positive reviews speak for themselves. Our home is professionally cleaned after every guest check-out and our reviews are 4 and 5 star caliber.

Bring your pups along! We wouldn't want you to leave your canine companions at home while you're having all the fun at our dog friendly home! Forget the hassle of kenneling - there is plenty of dog friendly fun to be had.

We even provide a guest pass to Club Meadowridge so you can enjoy the outdoor hot tubs, heated pool, tennis courts, racquetball, sauna and gym!

Eric purchased this house in 2009

Why Eric chose Winter Park Area

World class skiing, hiking, golf and boating. Miss traffic by arriving Friday eve and leaving later on Sunday. Quiet and private home. Fenced yard means no kenneling. Great views of mountains and the Milky Way from the deck. Nothing better than sitting in front of a huge fire with a glass of wine, your friends and your dogs after a full day of fun.

What makes this house unique

Free Winter Park shuttle bus pickup right past the end of the driveway! 46' LCD with BluRay, PS3, Wii, surround sound and huge video library - HBO/Cinemax and On-Demand movies - WiFi - Huge fireplace with stocked firewood - Convenient to shops, restaurants and supermarkets. Lots of space and storage.

Bring up to 3 dogs. They can access the deck and the fenced back yard using the dog door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came from Atlanta, Napa Valley, Portland and Fort Collins and enjoyed a week of frosty fun in Winter park. The home was great for the family and my daughter's dog, Alister. Alister loved the dog door and access to chasing balls in the snow. Winter Park met all our skiing/boarding needs and the fresh show gave us some powder to work through. We watched a "Star Wars" episode every night and gathered around the table for games and wonderful meals. We would definitely come again in the future!

AWESOME place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was great!!! Eric was an absolute pleasure to work with. We wanted to spend a long weekend with family and friends, so we did just that in this wonderfully accommodating home. We spent the days watching movies, snow boarding, and eating. I loved the movie selection, the fully stocked kitchen, the spacious rooms, and being able to wake up every morning to a snowy sunrise. We will be staying at this home again in the future!!! Oh yeah, the dogs wore themselves out every day.

Family Christmas

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have spent Christmas in the Winter Park/Fraser/Grand Lake area because their are so many opportunities for everyone in our family to enjoy. We've always wanted to take our dogs along and it just so happens this is one of the few places also big enough for our entire family. Even though the valley can get busy with skiers and traffic, this home is tucked nicely out of the way of the "rat race" yet very close to all of the amenities. Definitely one of the more enjoyable vacation rentals our family has been to.

New Years 2016

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 adults and 4 children stayed comfortably at this awesome house. Although the temperature outside was very low and the snow was very high, the house was warm and cozy. The house is conveniently located near a grocery store and not far from the slopes at Winter Park. We enjoyed cooking some meals at the house, however, there are nice restaurants close by. The house is nestled back off the street in a very beautiful neighborhood that felt safe enough for the kids to play in the front yard. The owners were easy to work with and the rental process went very smoothly. We definitely want to return!

We loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 adults, 3 teenagers and 2 children stayed at Eric and Michelle's place Dec 19-22, and it was awesome!!! We had plenty of room and sleeping places, and made dinner for everyone on 2 of the nights we were there. The house is beautiful, and they thought of everything we might need. Our dog Artie had a blast too! We kept two cars in the garage, and being able to pull right up to the front door can't be overestimated :) Thanks again Eric and Michelle, we will absolutely try to stay here again.

Great Rental

  • 5 of 5

The best dog friendly rental we've rented, by far! Roomy house, with a very well stocked kitchen. The deck with fire pit and fenced yard are fantastic. Really nice clubhouse just up the street. Working with the owners through the rental process was super easy, efficient, and prompt.

Fort Collins, CO

great place in a great location, Exceptional hosts

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this rental with some friends for a long ski weekend. It has a homey feel, everything you need for a relaxing stay, the clubhouse and pool were GREAT for the kids. We ended up not taking our dog and regretted it; he would have been in heaven. Above all, the owners are so attentive to detail and so welcoming! This was a very new experience for me, as most rental owners never even interact with rentors, but Eric went out of his way to offer his cell phone for any needs. Truly a difference maker for me, and a place I hope to stay again.

Winter Park Resort
Car: recommended

This private home is in the popular Winter Park Ranch subdivision of Fraser. Fraser is literally minutes from downtown Winter Park and right by the only full grocery.

Explore from the house or drive in almost any direction to find hiking, biking, boating, strolling or fishing. Relax on our enormous deck after a long day of whatever with a glass of wine or a toasty marshmallow.

Keep in mind that the Ski Resort is not in the town of Winter Park. It is a few minutes from town and requires you to drive and park with the rest of the traffic coming in from Denver or the town of Winter Park.

Also, Winter Park has multiple trains that run through the town and blow day and night. This property is NOT near the train tracks. Trust us, you'll remember this mention if you stay in Winter Park or on the other side of Fraser.

This location is private, large, comfortable and convenient.
