About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

This property is a private mountain home in downtown Winter Park within a few blocks walking distance to town. Just a few blocks from summer festivities in the park. 1 block from the ski shuttle route in the winter with a 5-10 minute ride to the slopes. The house backs onto a large open meadow with great views of the mountain trees and sky, which gives privacy and a feel of the mountains right in the middle of town. Easy to find with only 2 turns from the main street of Winter Park.

There are two living areas. The great room in the front includes the kitchen and the living room with DirectTV satellite TV (DVR/On Demand) and a DVD player. A big, comfortable sectional couch sits in front of a gas fireplace and flat screen with incredible picture.

The kitchen has all appliances (including a dishwasher), and is stocked with dishes, utensils, cookware, coffee maker, a crock pot, a panini maker, a waffle maker, an electric griddle, and more. There is a large kitchen table that can seat 6-10 (and extra folding table and chairs as needed).

The den is located in the back and has a second flat screen TV, a ping pong table, a double futon couch and great views of the backyard and meadow. A cabinet with games, puzzles and various novels for additional entertainment are provided.

There is free WIFI throughout the house.

There are 3 bedrooms. Upstairs is bedroom #1 with a king size bed and flat screen TV (sleeps 2) and bedroom #2 with 2 sets of twin bunk beds (sleeps 4). Downstairs is bedroom #3 with a full bed and a set of twin bunk beds (sleeps 4). The futon in the den also folds out to a double bed that is very comfortable (sleeps 2).

There are 2 full bathrooms - 1 downstairs with a jet tub and one upstairs with a shower

Linens and towels are provided, with extras in the linen closet if needed along with extra blankets and comforters. There is a washer/dryer in the house.

The backyard has a private outdoor hot tub with great jets and starry night views. There is a new outdoor sauna perfect after a long day on the slopes (or while everyone else is skiing). There is a gas BBQ with grilling utensils. Lawn furniture and picnic tables in the summer. A large grassy front yard as well with Aspen trees. Covered patios in the front and back. Great front porch swing for enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning or a cocktail in the evenings.

There is an attached 2 car garage (only 1 space available for parking) with some bikes available for use in the summer. Automatic snow removal when there is 4 or more inches of snow. There are 4 additional parking spaces in the large driveway

Many outdoor mountain activities nearby, including hiking, fishing, skiing/snowboarding, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, rafting, and many, many more. There is a big grocery store less than 10 minutes drive.

Hideaway Park is 4-5 blocks away, and is the site of many summer festivals (jazz festival, beer festival), free Thursday night concerts in the summer, a sledding hill with many sleds that is great for the kids in the winter, a great playground, and a large skatepark. Cooper Square is just around the corner with many shops, restaurants, a coffee shot, ski rental, free Friday night concerns, and free horsedrawn carriage/sleigh rides for the kids.

This is a great property for groups of friends and for families with kids, as the layout provides a nice separation of 'upstairs/downstairs' and the back living area is perfect for kids or as a separate recreation room area for ping pong or playing cards.

Baby/toddler amenities available upon request including a pack-and-play, portable high chair, changing table, comfy glider chair for rocking, baby swing, baby jumper, and access to toys/books. Please ask owners about these so we can leave you access if needed. Just out the backyard is a little trail to a wooded hill with a tree house for exploring.

Hiking, bike trails, rivers, parks, trailheads and the Winter Park ski area all within 5-10 minutes drive. 35 minutes to Rocky Mountain National Park and Grand Lake. 90 minutes to Denver.

We leave a basket of goodies for all renters to welcome you to our mountain getaway. There is a packet of menus to local restaurants and information about other local attractions and activities. Discount lift tickets available in the winter (first come/first serve, as supplies last).

About Nicole Torrez

We love Colorado and our mountain home, but we enjoy sharing it with others sometimes as well.

Nicole Torrez purchased this house in 2010

What makes this house unique

We love being in the middle of town and near the slopes, but also having a great view of the meadow, privacy, and that great mountain feeling. The attached garage is also very nice when it is cold and snowy!

Ideal spot for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a welcoming home that is ideally located near downtown and the slopes, and generously stocked with kitchen supplies, board games, other kids' toys/activities, and everything you need to make this your home away (with the added bonus of a hot tub and personal sauna), but don't want to pay for unnecessary and expensive frill, this is the perfect place for you. We loved our time in this home and would be happy to return for any ski weekend or family vacation. Easily a five star stay!

Great location and comfy stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful trip to winter park Co. Nicole was a gracious host who assisted us and made our stay pleasurable! We immensely enjoyed the hot tub and having an in home fireplace to drink hot coco and spend quality family time. The bedrooms were comfortable and kitchen well stocked. Location of the property was an easy walk to Coopers Square and other shops and eateries. Good times!

  • 5 of 5

The home was very cute and cozy, well supplied with everything we needed-especially for cooking

Loved having a hot tub, sauna, and being able to go on a little hike in the back yard.

Loved everything about it!

A perfect family getaway place.

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here several times over the last few years and wouldn't think of any other location. A perfect place to enjoy Winter Park's Brew fest in the summer, a short trip to Grand Lake for Fourth of July festivities, a perfect winter base camp for tubing in Frasier, and an easy shuttle ride to the resort for Skiing and Snowboarding in the winter months.

The house is clean, and the owners have thought of everything to make your stay perfect.

Great house in Winter Park!

  • 5 of 5

This was a nice house in a great location, close to everything we enjoy in Winter Park and the surrounding area. The kitchen, dining, and living areas are great for relaxing and entertaining, and we enjoyed preparing meals and grilling every night. The main floor bedroom is quite crowded with a double bed and a set of bunk beds, and the stairs to the second floor are very steep and narrow, so keep that in mind if you have small children or others with limited mobility. We loved the ping pong table, the back yard with hammock and National Forest access, the short walk to Hideaway Park, and the proximity to hiking trails of all lengths and levels of difficulty. We visited Grand Lake, rode horses at Snow Mountain Ranch, went geocaching, drove up the Moffat Road to Rollins Pass and climbed Mount Epworth, enjoyed the skate park and various hiking/running trails, fished and watched hot air balloons take off nearby in Fraser, and especially loved relaxing in the back yard and hot tub after our active days. This was a great home base for our 8 days in Grand County and I would definitely stay here again!
