About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + 3 Convertible bed(s), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-14)

We fell in love with Colorado's crisp clean air, crystal blue skies, wildlife and laid back pace as children. Our dream mountain get-a-way was realized in 2006 capturing the grandeur, nature and comfort of Colorado. The lot is 1 acre with glorious views of the ski area and the surrounding Rocky Mountains. We have seen foxes sleeping in our back yard and moose grazing on our landscaping. We believe that you will be delighted by our accommodations and appointments. Spacious and open are the finished 4000+ square feet of living area. We are located an easy 15 minutes from the ski area, and just 100 yards from miles of wilderness trails. You will find games, 62' Plasma TV, a distributed sound system, movies, hot tubbing and books to help you wind down from your custom tailored day.

About Ed Villanyi

Our family loves the mountains with all of the beauty and sports they have to offer year round. Our children started skiing when they were 5 and now as college students they ski like their daredevil father. The variety of activities with summer boating on Grand Lake, white water rafting, hot sulfur springs, hiking, biking fishing, just scratches the surface of summer then on to winter where limitations are self imposed. We have found the mountains a perfect place to un-wind our whirl wind schedules and spend quality time with family and friends.

Ed Villanyi purchased this house in 2006

Why Ed Villanyi chose Winter Park Area

My husband is an avid skier and has tackled the toughest terrain in the USA. We chose Winter Park as our skiing home base for the consistent quality of their ski conditions, the variety of trails, the excellent ski school for family and friends, and the close proximity to the Denver airport. It is less than a 2 hour drive from terminal to our front door.

What makes this house unique

This home is spacious and warm. Thirty foot great room ceiling with extensive beam and timber framework, connects with dinner area and gourmet kitchen to provide premier entertainment environment. Through the southern facing wall of glass is a million dollar view of Winter Park Ski area and surrounding mountain range. Home has ten foot ceilings on first floor and are vaulted even higher on the second floor. Outside is a oversize deck providing front row access to endless views. Watching the sun come over the mountains in morning with coffee in the Hot tub is my favorite. Everything is this home was designed on a grand and elegant scale.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow! What a special gem you have! Your house is the "Tops"- from the layout (love the mudroom), to the decor, to the amenities (rubes + slippers for the jacuzzi!), to the amazing view, we had an amazing time and are sad to leave. There were 10 of us here from Maryland (5 former Coloradoans) and we had a blast skiing. We also took a snow mobile tour up the Continental Divide, saw a mama moose and her baby along the way. We lucked out with the awesome weather and are leaving with wonderful memories in out hears and minds. Thank you for the privaledge of staying here. We hope to be back someday.

How close to perfect can a mountain home be? This one is big, beautiful, organized and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

If you have a large group and need a house that makes being together easy instead of a squeeze, this place is perfect. Plus a knockout view of the entire valley, massive deck, hot tub and all the conveniences of home. Everything worked. Top of the line.

Fabulous home, magnificent views!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful home that easily accommodated up to 8 adults and 5 children at one time. The home is gorgeous and the views are spectacular! We appreciated all the attention to detail from the most comfortable beds, comfy robes/slippers, toiletries, and the most comfortable furnishings. With the Safeway very near by, we were able to enjoy cooking out on the gas grill several nights. We indulged in the fabulous hot tub, and built a fire in the fire pit for smore's with the kids. Nearby in Winter Park we experienced beautiful hiking and mountain biking, and music events in the evening. We look forward to the opportunity to return to this one of a kind home, ideally located with the most beautiful mountain views I've seen!

Amazing Home with Magnificent Views!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family has been coming to the Winter Park area for over 25 years. Last July my husband and I brought our two sons with their wives and we were all amazed at how beautiful this home is. Last week my husband and I came with one of our sons and his wife. The others were sad to miss the trip. (My daughter in law is expecting in a few weeks) This house is so beautiful and welcoming we felt like we were at home! The house has everything you need that you do not feel like it is a rental home. Decorated beautifully and the deck has the most beautiful views we have ever seen in the area!!! We were sitting on the deck enjoying wine and a moose walked across the property and one night a fox actually walked up on the deck. The house is in a peaceful area which is wonderful because a lot of the houses we have rented before you can hear the train horn every night. Ed is wonderful to work with and he makes everything easy. All of the reviews before this one say it all!!!!! Amazing!!!

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We came here with extended family and friends and it had plenty of room for all of us. Not only is it more beautiful in person, the house is well stocked with basics. We have had several rentals in the past that provided little to nothing more than the house. Not the case here! Can't wait to come back next year!

AMAZING Property

  • 5 of 5

My husband schedules VRBO ski vacations for his business so is very picky about houses. We felt like we found a gem in Winterpark. We were a party of 10 with two families, grandparents who can't do stairs, 20+ year olds, and preteens. We put the grandparents on the ground floor in a beautiful master suite and still had another beautiful master suite upstairs for us. Our extended family (8 more) came to visit and eat with us, and there was plenty of room with the bench seating at the dining table!! Being from North Carolina we enjoyed a great Panther win on the large TV in the family room area. We also had a Bronco party with friends from Winterpark - we're all originally from Colorado - but win!! We would recommend this property to everyone - Ed was great and the house was fantastic!!!

This house is incredible. This is the 2nd year in a row our group has stayed here and we will be heading back each and every year. The views from the living room are fantastic, the house is huge, and all the amenities are perfect. It's about 5 minutes from the mountain and downtown Winter Park, so it's incredibly convenient. The thing we liked best about the place is that it doesn't feel like you're staying in a rental, or condo, or hotel. It feels like you're home. I can't recommend this place highly enough.
