About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, (Sleeps 12)

Located just 4 miles from Winter Park on 3/4 acre, with breathtaking views of 13,000 ft Byers peak. Walk 50 feet beyond the driveway to catch the free shuttle to the town of Winter Park as well as the ski resorts.

This Custom home was built using a centuries-old construction technique called 'timberframing.' Timberframe construction is typified by its use of large, exposed beams and logs connected by handcrafted, mortise and tenon joinery. It has a rustic feel, yet, has all the modern amenities. It has a second family room in the basement that includes a big-screen tv with video games, DVD, stereo, etc, which is perfect for the kids while the adults enjoy the main floor great room, which includes 20 ft vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, and a fully equipped media, audio center. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare that feast for your family and friends.

The surrounding area is a true Colorado gem, with over 600 miles of the best mountain biking and hiking trails. Walk to the fly fishing haven of the Fraser river or fish the headwaters of the Colorado River, just 25 miles away. Enjoy some of the country's most spectacular and challenging mountain golf courses. The winter is host to award-winning skiing and snow boarding at Mary Jane and Winter Park Resorts. The two areas spread across 5 mountains and 3,078 acres with 3,060 ft of vertical and an impressive 30 ft of snow per year. You can find terrain for everyone from the beginner to the most experienced adrenaline junky. Explore thousands of miles of snowmobile trails or make your own tracks in wide-open powder fields. You may choose from more exotic winter activities such as dog sledding and horse-drawn sleigh rides, to a tranquil, relaxing spa visit at Devil's Thumb Resort. Get excercise by snowshoeing or cross-country skiing.

Our house is available for rent throughout the year. Call for availability and rates.

Why Mark Johnson chose Winter Park Area

We chose to build in the Winter Park area because we enjoyed visiting so much as children. We believe it is the last of the true 'Colorado Mountain Resort Towns'. It has just enough amenities to accommodate most interests, while maintaining a mountain town feel. As soon as we reach the top of Berthoud Pass and view the great continental divide and the Fraser Valley below, our stress is lifted. Smell the fresh mountain air, scented with pine trees and you will understand why we enjoy the area so much. We hope you will as well.

What makes this house unique

Our house has the ideal layout for family and friends. It has 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms with 2 complete family rooms. This allows you to enjoy the company of larger groups without feeling cramped. We love knowing that our kids are having fun in the basement family room playing, watching movies or playing video games, while the adults enjoy time together on the main floor. Mornings are a treat as the sun illuminates the 13,000 ft., snow-capped, Byers Peak framed by the large windows in the back of the house. The vaulted great room is accented by large wood beams and logs, giving you the feel of a true mountain getaway.

Great space for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this house for Thanksgiving. We had a total of 7 adults and 6 kids, and this place was excellent! There was more than enough room for a lot of people, with comfortable size bedrooms and beds (queens and kings in every room). The owner was great - he was available and responded to any questions quickly. There is a loft upstairs, which the kids enjoyed for sleeping and playing, and a good sized family room downstairs with a smart TV. The big windows let in a lot of sunshine, so the house is warm and cozy - with a gas fireplace and a good furnace (no one was cold at night). There was always plenty of hot water for everyone and everything was clean. The kitchen was very well stocked - almost everything we needed to cook Thanksgiving dinner was there. The location is great - the Safeway is just down the road, the ski slopes aren't too far, there's a sledding hill that's a couple minutes away, and the rec center has a great pool for kids and is about 5 min away. The only thing to keep in mind if you have a toddler (which we did), is that the stairs are steep and so you'll need to bring your own toddler gate to block off the stairs. Overall, I would stay here again and definitely recommend it to anyone with a larger group!

we would definitely stay there again.

  • 4 of 5

The Cabin was everything we expected. Comfortable and nice size for the 11 people that stayed there. Plenty of room. It is a less secluded than what we thought but it was ok since we talked to the neighbors and found some great places to go. Very convenient to Fraser and winter park and beautiful views. Felt rustic and that awesome experience Being in the mountains but with all the convince. Close to a lot of our activities and RMNF. Would stay here again.

Wonderful place for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect place for a vacation gathering. With bedrooms on all three levels, it is easy to both be together and feel you have some privacy. The house has very good views, is thoroughly equipped with everything you need, and the "great room" and open kitchen make visiting easy. There is quite a bit to do in the area, even in the summer, and, of course, as many mountain hikes (or bikes) as you want. The Safeway and liquor story literally at the bottom of the hill are convenient and well-stocked. One alert: no doubt because of the darn Lodge Poll Pine Beetle, the trees right next to the house have had to be cut down, so when you approach, it will look a bit less wooded than you might have expected. However, several in our party said they preferred the wild flowers growing around the house anyway, and there are plenty of pine walks very close at hand. There were 10 of us, aged 8-74 for a week and I can't think of a single thing that anyone complained about the house. Thanks, Mark, for letting us live there for a week.
