Beautiful log cabin nestled in the woods with dramatic views of Continental Divide (four-wheel drive a must in the winter). Private deck with large hot tub and gas grill. You'll marvel at the warmth your family/group feels around the river stone fireplace. Fourteen people can crowd around the handcrafted wood dining room table playing games while the cooks listen in from the gourmet kitchen. Every inch of this cabin was crafted by top rated finish carpenters. You'll marvel at the unique touches throughout. Each bathroom has its own Kohler fixtures (like a two-person jetted tub and old fashioned claw foot one) creating a distinct environment. The most frequent comment we hear from guests, 'Your pictures don't do it justice.' All manner of mountain sports are nearby. We're walking distance from the Arapaho National Forest and just a short drive to Winter Park Ski Area. A perfect setting for romance (we've had many small weddings) or family reunions and group get-togethers.

We built our beautiful log cabin in 1995. We have enjoyed the wonderful wooded national forest surrounding our home and the amazing ski resort in Winter Park
Steve and Sharon Torgerson purchased this cabin in 1995
We build our log cabin in 1995. It is nestled near the Arapaho National Forest and close to the Winter Park/Mary Jane Ski Area. We love to ski and all the winter and summer sports that are abundant in our area.
The summer is also a great time to be in the mountains of Colorado. In addition to the great hiking and mountain biking we are close to the Rocky Mountain National Park. We are also around 70 miles from downtown Denver which offers many city delights.
We had an incredible experience staying at this cabin with our group of 10! It is nestled in a beautiful valley, perched on a hillside, which gives the cabin wonderful views of the surrounding mountains. It feels very secluded, even though you're only 10-15 minutes from town. The sleeping arrangements are very comfortable for 10 people, and the kitchen and living room areas are spacious for the whole group to hang out in. The kitchen was fully supplied with great cooking equipment, there is a huge communal table to eat at and play games on, and the TV area has a cozy fireplace and comfy leather couches. All of the tile floors are heated too! It was very clean and well-maintained.
Our favorite part of the cabin was the big hot tub that is conveniently set on the corner of the huge deck. It was amazing for relaxing in after a day of outdoor activities, and on a clear night you can sit in the hot tub and gaze at the stars.
The owners of the property were very responsive throughout our planning prior to the weekend, and the caretakers that lived below were always quick to reply to our questions or requests. They live right there on the bottom floor so it is very convenient for them to help with anything, while at the same time it felt like we had the whole property to ourselves. They gave us complete privacy for the whole stay, and they had a separate entrance and driveway.
We HIGHLY recommend this vacation home for a group looking for beautiful views, affordable rates, a spacious cabin, and responsive hosts! The nearby town of Fraser has a Safeway and some bars and restaurants to visit. Also, it is very close to snowshoeing and cross-country ski trails, as well as Winter Park Resort and the Fraser sledding hill!!
This cabin is like the perfect hidden gem with breathtaking views from every room and the coziest feel! I stayed with a group of friends for a week and it wasn't nearly long enough! It's far enough away from the nearest town to get that exclusive cabin in the woods feel but only a short drive into town to head in as often as you wanted... The guy who was managing the place was very kind and knowledgeable and respected our space and privacy. I would highly recommend this resort for any type of vacay!
I've been to Winter Park to ski, but the place has a special magic in the summer. Dancing Aspen has its own cultivated stretch of native wildflowers bordering the driveway, and the view from the deck on the other side stretches for miles of green hills and rambling clouds. The place is comfortable, quiet, and a great place to share with friends. I completed a writing project I had planned and hope to visit again soon.
Our stay was amazing! The owners were very accommodating and helpful. The view from the deck is a perfect combination of mountains in the distance, horses grazing in nearby fields, and beautiful aspen trees surrounding the cabin. The leaves are absolutely mesmerizing when the wind blows during the day, the sun set really is like something you would see in a sappy movie, and the stars are breath taking at night! The sky was so clear that we saw satellites streak across the sky from the deck jacuzzi. As if that weren't enough, the state park is near by for hiking and if you need anything you can make a quick run into town.
I really recommend this cabin and I hope I can come back soon! Enjoy your stay!
We are long time lovers of Colorado and the spectacular Rockies. This destination IS the perfect get-away location near Denver for just about any activity that a person or group of people might desire: trout fishing, horseback riding, skiing, mountain hiking or biking, the charm of Fraser's hospitality, and so much more. We especially enjoyed the ambiance of the spacious back deck's view (and remember that hot tub!). The cabin, itself, can comfortably accommodate a large group of people, with private nooks for quiet time and large areas for cooking, dining or visiting. Our most recent two visits were for a summer writer's workshop. Consequently, we had an opportunity to visit with the owner and his son, both of whom are exceptional human beings This enhanced our visit and overall experience. This is a very welcoming and nurturing space, and we confidently recommend this location!
My wife and family and friends have stayed here multiple times, and we'll be coming back. Close to world class skiing in the winter, and great for mountain biking and fishing in the summer. Spacious, clean, pristine and beautiful! Highly recommended for folks who want to have a terrific place to gather in the heart of the Rockies, secluded yet near to the best offerings Winter Park and Fraser have to offer. The skiing nearby is AAA+ and the mountain biking and fishing are the same. This is a homey, comfortable and easy place to hang out.
Winter Park/Fraser Valley is an outdoor paradise. It is skied by more people from Colorado than any other slopes in the State. There is wilderness, the Rocky Mountain National Park, tons of summer activities, a recreation center and all the summer activities of the mountains.
