Bridgers Cache house description
This elegant home was custom-built in '06 with meticulous attention to detail by the owners. It is located in the exclusive, gated Bridger's Cache Community that has the only ski in - ski out private homes in the Winter Park resort area. Our home has been featured in Signature Kitchens and Baths, and has been requested for another spread in a different home magazine slated to appear during the Winter of '09. It is a truly special place.
The owners are in the area year round and will be able to provide travel advice, and will generally be readily available if there are questions about the operation of any appliances, etc.
Beginner skiers would enjoy their day most on all the green and blue slopes on the Winter Park side. Winter Park is well known for its excellent ski instructors. (For families with little ones who are not skiers, it is easiest to take the bus from the base of Jane down to the ski school's entrance at the base of Winter Park.) From the Winter Park side for the return home, take blue runs back down from the top of Mary Jane. The daring among you can come home from Winter Park on Outhouse. For the experts among you, stay for the day on the Mary Jane side for the Needle's Eye, the Shoots, Trestle and all the others.
The gourmet chef of your household will love the kitchen. It is fully equipped. You'll want to plan your groceries, perhaps making a stop on the front range and then filling in at the local Safeway in Fraser.
Give Elena a call or drop a line with all your questions. 970-726-9807. Three night minimum stay.

To drive, however, one goes out the Mary Jane road to the south, and then hairpins back to the north down Hwy 40 to get to the restaurants, etc, in the town of Winter Park....moreless

Fantastic Retreat for Family Skiing
Fantastic Retreat for Family Skiing
We stayed at this property for 5 days over MLK weekend. It is truly a special property at Winter Park/Mary Jane. We had 4 couples and 9 children aged 7 and up staying at the house, and it was a perfect set-up. 2 bunkrooms for the kids and 4 big bedrooms for the adults, most with private baths. The house itself is exquisite - the owners clearly care about this property and there are many touches that would be made only by an owner who actually uses the property. Not to mention the Radiant Floors! The great room is definitely “great” and a wonderful gathering place at the end of skiing. The hot tub is just outside the great room, making it all very integrated with the open gourmet kitchen and even the large dining area. There was plenty of room for us all to have a great time relaxing, playing cards, grilling and catching up. It is a very short walk to get onto the catwalk (50 yards max) and all of our kids were able to ski back home right up to the garage door. For true beginners, any catwalk will be pretty much not possible, but it did not seem to be a problem for even our more novice skiers. The house is in a very private enclave that many probably are not even aware exists. It has great privacy “away from it all” and is a perfect place to reconnect with old friends or family. The owner (Elena) is located nearby and gave a comprehensive tour of how to use the place, and I’m confident that if anything went wrong (which it didn’t) it would be taken care of. Elena was very easy to work with and very accommodating when we had flight cancellations on the departure. Definitely the type of person from whom you want to be renting a vacation home. Thanks for a great vacation!

Owner response: Thank you, Rodd, for your kind words, and many thanks to all of you for taking such good care of our home. We hope to see you back for another family gathering! Take Care, Elena
We were a family group with as many as 13 on some days. This was a perfect house for us. Six big, private bedrooms, large living area and spacious kitchen. Our many cooks were delighted by the well equipped kitchen. As other guests have mentioned, the beds were heavenly. Elena is a wonderful host - easy to work with and attentive to the little details that make your stay special. Finally, ski in and ski out for all - nine year old granddaughter as well as Grandma D!

Incredible house in a great location.
Incredible house in a great location.
Highly recommended. Rented this property for a holiday ski trip with my parents and all my brothers and sisters and their families. Fifteen people total...and very comfortably. We could not have been more pleased. This house is an extraordinary property. A true dream home. The owners spared no expense when picking out all the features, fixtures, appliances, amenities, etc. Great floor plan for sharing with multiple families. The location also is amazing. Walking distance to Mary Jane Base or to the catwalk run that dumps you out at the main base area. We are already planning to come back next year.

We had a wonderful experience, the owners were available to show us how to use everything. The home is warm and spacious, close to the slopes. Highly recommend it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your beautiful slopeside home. Everyone in our group had a great time. Our “chefs” enjoyed the kitchen and the whole group had a great time gathering in the great room “watching” movies (some of us may have stole a few extra winks pretending to watch). The beds and the mattresses were a huge hit with everyone…..Temperpedic right? There have been a few requests to ask what model they were…..they certainly did the trick . Winter Park is one of our very favorite places in the world, now we have at least one more reason to love it. Thanks to Elena and Danielle and to the late wildlife show brought to us by some neighborhood foxes. Can't wait for next year.

Owner response: We get terrific vicarious pleasure from families having a blast together. Thank you for being such great guests. AND thank you for your experitise on figuring out the WiFi connection. We sure hope to see you again next year!! Be safe, take care, and thank you very much. Sincerely, Elena.
The Mary Jane home in Winter Park is absolutely incredible. Every aspect of the vacation exceeded all our expectation. The owner, Elena, made sure you felt right at home. The bathrooms were stocked with toiletries, the beds were far beyond beds in hotels and the location was amazing. Unlike most homes in the area who claim you can "ski in/ski out", we were actually able to put our skis on before exiting the garage and ski right out of our driveway. When we arrived, Elena made sure we knew where things were around the house and how they worked. She was able to direct us to local hot spots, and she even made sure we had food for breakfast the first morning (we arrived very late in the evening). The entire experience was the perfect retreat for our group. We will most definitely be returning to Winter Park and staying in this home at the base of Mary Jane!
