About the property

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 12 Sleeps

Built in 2005, this accommodating ski chalet is designed and furnished specifically for family vacations. It's perfect for 6-10 people (1-2 families) but will sleep up to 12. Very nice for small retreats, dual family vacations, or small youth groups. We have a family of six (four children) and often entertain another family of four for the weekend. Works perfectly.

Come stay and enjoy everything that Winter Park and Grand County have to offer.

Located in the Ptarmigan subdivision above the Safeway in Fraser, this unique location provides the availability of all town services including free shuttle service all over town, down the hill to Safeway, the tubing hill, and of course the ski area.

About Ryan Reichenbach

After staying in the Winter Park/Fraser area many times, renting condos and houses, we decided we wanted a place of our own that would fit our family of 6 along with another small family.

Ryan Reichenbach purchased this chalet in 2003

Why Ryan Reichenbach chose Winter Park Area

We love the location in Fraser above the Safeway and on the bus route. This location allows us to catch the bus to the ski area right at the end of the driveway. We built the house to match what we consider to be a traditional ski chalet, with high vaulted wood ceilings, wood burning stove, great room, three bedrooms (one with bunks), and a small deck out back with a hot tub.

What makes this chalet unique

Private hot tub, ski bus picks up at the end of the drive on the corner,. Great for two families to spend a ski weekend together.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hiking, walking, fishing, golfing-driving range, alpine slide. Great place, perfect for the dogs. Amazing view!

Vacation Heaven

  • 5 of 5

July 2017 will be a favorite memory forever. Spent the month in this beautiful, spacious, and comfortable home. The location is outstanding. The views from the deck were spectacular. Sunsets, soaking up the sun, morning coffee, or any excuse to enjoy the view.

The beds were oh so comfortable, as well as the furnishings. Owners provided everything we needed and more.

Best of all, we brought our two dogs. They enjoyed the dog run, as well as walks in the neighborhood. We enjoyed at least 2 walks a day on the neighboring roads, meadows, and trails.

Couldn't ask for a better location. Close to grocery store, restaurants, hiking, biking, and town. We had a car, but also made use of the free shuttle bus that stops right at the end of the driveway.

Will be back next year and possibly this ski season as well. So grateful we chose Sunset Chalet!

Comfortable, great location

The owner was easy to work with. The kitchen had everything needed to cook a meal for 6 people including a large dining table. The bathrooms were clean.

Great location and perfect for a family or gathering of friends!

  • 4 of 5

The only negative would be that the beds really aren't that comfortable. Other than that, the place was perfect for us. The ski bus pick-up being about 20 yards away from the house was really helpful.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the positive response and I'm glad you enjoyed our vacation home. Everyone likes that shuttle pick-up at the end of the driveway. Sorry that the beds were not to your liking, this is the first time we've ever had a complaint on that, but we will check them for firmness, support, etc, and address the issue if needed.

Great property, spacious, awesome deck, great location, recommend staying here

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house over July 4th weekend. Ryan was very easy to work with and extremely responsive. We would definitely stay here again. The house was in a great location -- about 2 miles from downtown Winter Park. It was also on a bus line, although you have to call for pickup as the bus does not make regular stops. The kitchen had plenty of pans and dishes. We brought our own spices and condiments; however, the kitchen looked well stocked in this area. There was an awesome, large deck that opened off the kitchen and den with plenty of room for lots of people. We didn't need A/C, although the downstairs bedrooms could use a fan (seemed a little stuffy albeit we didn't sleep in those rooms). The master bedroom is quite large with plenty of drawer and closet space. We were a bit disappointed it didn't have a king bed as there is plenty of room for it. And frankly, the queen bed wasn't that comfortable. The in-suite bathroom was a double vanity -- again very spacious. There were two negative items for us: one, due to the style of the metal stairs to the front door, our little dog couldn't go up/down them. This wouldn't be an issue for a bigger dog with bigger feet. Two, we were disappointed in the pet run as there was no grass -- just dirt, rocks, pine combs and weeds. There was also a lot of building debris under the walk leading to the pet run which invites trouble for a small dog. Plus, our dog had a hard time making it from the ground to the first step (oh, the troubles of being short). Nonetheless, the stairs and dog run aren't a deal breaker for us so we would stay here again. We didn't use the not-so private hot tub, but nice that it was available. This house would be ideal for a family that planned on skiing as it had plenty of room. The two car garage would be a huge plus in winter.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the five star response Melissa! Note to readers about the review: 1. The bus line runs on a regular schedule during the ski season, just not during the summer. In fact, I didn't think it ran at all during the summer so I am glad that you can call and request it. I think that may be a new service in the valley. 2. You never need AC up in the Fraser Valley. There are windows in every bedroom to air it out if needed. 3. The master bedroom does have a queen bed as advertised, it is a firm mattress. I personally think it is very comfortable, but my wife agrees that it is a little firm for her. So, I guess it depends on your preference. This is the first time anybody has ever commented on it. 4. The metal stairs up to the front door are there for a purpose. During the winter, people are often walking up them with snowy ski boots on and the metal stairs hold up to the wear and tear as well as help knock snow off boots before entering the house. 5. Sorry there is no grass in the dog run area. There is very little grass in this neighborhood anywhere and it's not really feasible to put in a sprinkler system to keep grass growing in that environment, so we choose to keep the dog run the same as the natural mountain environment. 6. The hot-tub is private in that it is only for the use of people staying in our house. It is in a fenced area accessible only from the kitchen of the house. This is a neighborhood though, full of numerous homes and condos so other houses do backup to the back of our house, so it's not completely secluded. But there are some trees and when the hot tub lid is lifted open, the lid and trees privacy from most neighboring windows. Again, thanks for the five-star review and we hope you will visit us again. -Ryan
