About the property

Mountain views, 4 Bedrooms + 2 xl twins, 2 sofa sleepers & 4 1/2 baths

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

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.

Amazing home in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful drive through national forest and mountains from Denver airport. Home was roomy, comfortable, neat, very clean, stocked with movies and games for families. We ate in every night and cooked. Our kids loved the hot tub in the snow. We had beautiful views of the mountains. Only 10 minutes from ski resort. Overall, it was a perfect mountain home for our first family ski trip. Thank you Ed & Laura!!

Two families from North Carolina...we had a wonderful time! Not a lot of snow, as in years past, but we worked around it. House was perfect and really appreciated blow up mattresses. Went on hikes through red gate, skied, and snow mobiled. Great vacation house and well stocked! Our second Christmas/New Year’s here and couldn’t find a more perfect setting/view! Perfect spot for watching fireworks! Thanks Ed

The owners though of everything and the place was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to travel to Winter Park with extended family the 1st week of march this year and it was awesome! We will be coming back to Winter Park again next year.

The owners were responsive and had an answer for everything. The house was beautiful, clean, well equipped, and just perfect for the whole family.

This house has it all. Games, movies, an amazing view, great kitchen, comfortable beds, soft towels etc. The day we had to leave, a very bad snow storm rolled in. Our rental company didn't provide us with a very good car, and we made one phone call and the plow service was there in a minute to clear the drive so we could get out of town on time. The fire place in the living room was great and we used it every night.

We had fun in the hot tub and the robes provided were a really necessary touch.

Make sure to ask the owner about having a personal chef come in and cook for your group. Jordan came to the house 2x and I can still taste the yummy food he cooked! Even if you love to cook, this is worth doing!

I manage rental properties at the beach, so I had high expectations and they were all exceeded. From the extra trash bags, and toilet paper, to the lotion in all the bathrooms, these owners thought of everything. We would come back again in an instant if we have a large group again.

Thanks again for letting us enjoy your home!

Incredible Vacation Home

Clean, roomy, well-appointed mountain home made our vacation feel like a slice of heaven. Owners were quick to respond to our questions and were able to take care of our immediate needs with instant results.

This home is so classy and the views are spectacular!! Don't settle for "average" layout…..go for the best and book this one.

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.
