About Bill and Marla Vollmer

We're a semi - retired (real estate development) couple from the St. Louis area who have been coming to Summit County for almost 30 years. Our grown children have made Colorado their home and we figured if we wanted to spend more time with them we should make the move, too. You just can't help but love it out here!

Bill and Marla Vollmer purchased this house in 2013

Why Bill and Marla Vollmer chose Summit County Colorado

We wanted a property that was centrally located, offering easy access to all that Summit County has to offer. Considered Breckenridge, but getting in and out of town during the busy seasons can be SO time consuming.

We wanted to be able to reach Hwy. 70 quickly and easily. That way, if we decided to ski Vail or Beaver Creek, or drive down to Ft. Collins or Denver, the highway is practically right out the door and we don't get hung up in Breck traffic! We love that it's close enough for our kids to drive up and visit often! Knew that we wanted Mesa Cortina or Cortina Ridge...just love this quiet and friendly neighborhood! We just had to be patient...homes in this area rarely come up for sale!

What makes this house unique

We love the views this home offers, the neighborhood, and the easy, level entrance into the garage. Very few homes in Summit County have everything you need on one level with no steps, and since we plan to grow old up here, this home is ideal. So easy to unload and put away the groceries, carry in packages, etc... And again, a big plus being in Cortina Ridge in Silverthorne makes highway 70 access so convenient, getting anywhere we want to go is a breeze.

The house was well designed, thoughtfully furnished and supplied and perfectly situated.

  • 5 of 5

The Two Bears property was the perfect place for our family's Christmas celebration. It could not have been more comfortable or convenient. On clear days, the younger family members headed for the nearby ski slopes; in bad weather, they played pool downstairs. In all weather, they enjoyed the hot tub. The owners, Bill and Marla Vollmer, were very gracious, helpful hosts.

Great home, worked amazingly for our large group!

  • 5 of 5

A great summer time base camp for our Jeeping adventures! This is a wonderful home, very grateful the owners shared it with our group!

I was surprised to see the owners were Cardinals fans. As a Cubs fan, this couldn't be left alone! We left a great party gift behind; Cubs hat and Harry Carey glasses on the buck hanging in the living room! Haha!

Thank you for having a sense of humor, we very much enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Y'all were absolutely awesome....so glad you had a good time!! Unfortunately, as CUBS fans, we may have to double the rent for you if you ever decide to stay again. ;) Jack Bucky was disrobed from the Cubs gear as soon as my son walked in the door....can't have that stigma lingering in the house! (Best Cubs rivalry we've ever had....loved having y"all. Come back any time!)

Beautiful home with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

The past several years, our family rents a house in the Silverthorne area to ski over the kids' Spring Break, and this year was no different. We had not stayed in this home before, but it ended up being one of our favorites. The pictures do not do it justice...it is beautiful. In fact I might recommend posting a new picture of the outside. My husband was concerned that it was a duplex at first because the outside picture only shows half of the garage.

There were only 4 of us, so everyone had their own huge room, and we liked that the other bedrooms were in the basement separate from the master so that my hubby and I had a little separation if we wanted it. And we loved that all of the cabinets were labeled in the kitchen. Both Bill and Marla were wonderful to work with and were very responsive anytime I had a question. The view outside of the great room was absolutely gorgeous. The hot tub was huge with lots of different jets and features, and it was cleaned once (regular maintenance) while we were there, which was nice. And the pool table was very fun although it was a little too close to one of the walls for certain shots.

The last day we were there, my hubby and I took our snow shoes out and after walking down the road a bit, stumbled upon this path that took us through a field and into some woods, which we loved.

The only things I can "complain" about, and they aren't really big complaints, are that we didn't find the beds and pillows super comfortable, so our nights were a bit restless. But I know that is a very personal thing, and not every mattress/pillow is for everyone. And we have certainly stayed in places with less comfortable beds and pillows. Also, especially on sunny days, it was really hard to regulate the radiant heat in the house (which is mentioned in the documentation). We like our house pretty cool, so it took us the first day to realize that on sunny days, we needed to turn the thermostats way down. We also were a bit surprised that the hot water ran out so quickly when all of us were wanting to shower after skiing...but we dealt with it and just alternated. And we loved the steam shower in the master bath, but learned that you can't regulate how hot it gets...you just have to turn it off when you've had enough. :) Lastly, we aren't fans of commercials, so not having any movie channels was a bit of a bummer, but we just rigged up our own movies to watch.

But all in all, we had a great time! Thank you Marla and Bill!

Great place, great view, great owners

  • 5 of 5

We came to Silverthorne for our son's wedding in February. Being from well out of the area, we had some concerns about weather, accommodations, and just about everything you can imagine with a big event. From the first moment we saw the Two Bears property on Home Away, we were eager to book our trip for this location. Little did we know that we would encounter one of the most helpful and comforting people that would make this experience everything and more. Marla was the first to contact us on our inquiries and we really didn't need to look anywhere else (only 1 of the other 5 replied and it took them days). Marla was back to us in 10 minutes. Now, don't expect that kind of response time. A day reply is considered really good and Marla always got back to us quickly. Arrangements were made. All of the transactions went smooth and easy. I really appreciate the open and honest way Marla worked with us through the process.

Upon arrival, we were amazed at the generous open space and the beauty of the home. The views were stunning and the home was perfect. We had a party of 15 and felt very comfortable. There was no feeling like you were on top of one another. The bunkroom, 2nd master and two-queen bed rooms were on the lower level. There was ample seating down there around the entertainment center. The billards table was there as well. We did have to keep the kids off the table in the evening as the sound does bleed into the bedrooms. However, that was of little sacrifice. The rooms were large and comfortable. The spa was on the patio (we did not use due to cold weather). The main level was huge. There is a very large open kitchen with beautiful and wide countertops. The dining table was very large and didn't feel like it was put in a cramped space at all. There was seating at the counter as well. The kitchen itself has nearly everything you will need as well as some items that are left there for use. My suggestion is to check it out before you go shopping as you might find what you need there.

The living room has seating for at least 8 and with the dining table nearby, you can comfortably have your entire group in the same room with ease. The views from this level are amazing. The home, in general, had such a nice personal touch that I felt like I was visiting my new friend Marla. I was so happy with our experience here that I wouldn't hesitate to go back again. This is a nice family place good for your next large gathering. I fully recommend.

Perfect Home for Our Ski Vacation (group of 15 adults)

  • 5 of 5

Everything about my experience was fantastic. Marla (owner) is very responsive, and she's very nice. The house is amazing, better in person. Huge home, easily accommodated our group of 15 adults. Hot tub is hot like it's supposed to be, not lukewarm. Perfect for a long day after hitting the slopes. However, it wasn't hot the first day because we had to turn it on. Home is very close to all the restaurants and grocery stores in Silverthorne. Very close to Keystone for skiing. About 40 - 50 minutes away from Vail and Beaver Creek. We skied 4 days straight at all 3 of those resorts. Breckenridge is also close by.

One of the most helpful thing the owners did was put labels and instructions EVERYWHERE (like on kitchen cabinets and drawers).

My favorite part of the house was the kitchen, dining, and great room area. It's huge and very open. Perfect for group gatherings.

Suggestions to owners: 1) if possible, remove the owners' vehicle from the garage so that two vehicles can park in it instead of just one. 2) provide instructions on how to operate the television in the downstairs living area.

I would definitely stay at this home again.

Thank you, Marla, for everything!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review! You were a pleasure to talk to, Roshan; makes hosting a delight. Sorry the hot tub wasn't turned up on your arrival...occasionally the power goes out up here during storms and the circuit breaker will kick off. Glad it was an easy fix. Also, we used to have printed directions for that basement tv....no idea what happened to them, but we will definitely type them up again and post them where (hopefully!) everyone will be able to find them and figure it out. As for the truck in the garage, I'm afraid it's there to stay. If we leave it in the driveway, the snow removal company that plows for us does not have enough room to maneuver and get the full drive area cleaned . Really glad you enjoyed your stay. Come back any time! Marla

Terrific time with friends & family

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 families, total of 8 adults and 8 kids, and this place was PERFECT! Plenty of room for us to spread out, cook, play & relax. The house is terrifically well stocked, cooking wise, and toy/kid wise. Easy to access a few different ski resorts, which was helpful since we had a few different passes -- Copper, Brek, etc.

THANK YOU for everything!
