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!

Excellent place for a restful and peaceful time!
If you want a weekend away from the city and noise, this is the perfect place to be. The house is near the town and has stores near you to buy anything you need. The house is cozy and well equipped and has everything you need for a restful time. Nicole let’s all the information you need and is always willing to answer any questions you might have. Maintenance and cleanliness of the house is perfect. It’s a place I would definitely come back to.
great home for a big group
This was a perfect setup for a group of individuals, which is what we wanted. It was centrally located in Winter Park and had a wonderful back yard in which to gather.
Ideal spot for a family getaway
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!
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!
Great location, the house is close to everything to do and see!
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.
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.
