Winter Park Area House Rental Photos and Description

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.

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.

Best Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family. We had 14 adults and there was plenty of room for all. The house is fantastic. When you first arrive and take in the view of Winter Park Ski Area and mountains in the background you want to stay forever. The kitchen was wonderful. It has everything you need to prepare a dinner for all. The equipment was all in working order and there were serving pieces for all occasions. It was a warm gathering place for everyone. The living room and all the TV and DVD equipment was great. Plenty of room for all to enjoy. There are two Master Bedrooms and 3 other bedrooms. All couches pull out to accommodate everyone. The furnishings are all first class - very beautiful. We loved the Hot Tub. The 3 car garage was good to have. The home was very clean and very welcoming. We hope to return next year.

Family Get A Way

  • 5 of 5

My family always takes a trip together after Christmas. This year we wanted to go to the snow since our little grand daughter hasn't experience deep snow. We were so please with this beautiful home, it accommodated all our needs, very relaxing and comfortable. We had everything we needed in this home and more. The kitchen was well stocked and I appreciated how they had stocked the kitchen with spices & etc. which made my work much easier. The amenities were great the hot tub, games, sled, videos and even heated boot warmers...and much more. Ed was such a pleasure to work with, he even sent us back a few things we left in the home.....What a Gentlemen. There were 9 of us and we had plenty of room with out being on top of one another.....I would recommend this Home to anyone.....we will rent again if ever go back to Colorado!

Vacation home has it all!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 just spent Christmas at this beautiful home near Winter Park. Ages ranged from 18 to 78. Plenty of sleeping space and bathrooms for all. The great room is open to the kitchen/dining area for everyone to be together and all bedrooms have private sitting areas for alone time if needed. We had everything we needed in the kitchen for cooking fabulous Christmas Eve and Christmas Day meals. The amenities are tremendous with a hot tub, games, sled, videos, heated boot warmers (wow!), heated floors, and all kinds of nice touches. And for your outdoor Colorado vacation, snowshoeing/cross-country skiing trails, skating, skiing/snowboarding, tubing, are all either within walking distance (trails) or a 5-10 minute car ride away. We took advantage of them all. The homeowner made himself readily available for questions and responded very quickly to all emails. Couldn't have been easier. Thank you Ed and Laura. You will NOT be disappointed by treating yourself to this beautiful getaway.
