Property description

You won't find a better value for your vacation in the Winter Park area. This home, located on a private one acre wooded lot lets you get away to quiet privacy, but is convenient to all the activities of the Grand County recreation area. Ten minutes to Winter Park. An hour and a half from Denver.

Check the Video Tab above for a video about the house and area.

Winter Park and Granby Ranch downhill ski areas nearby. Cross country skiing and snowshoeing at Devil's Thumb and YMCA of the Rockies within minutes. Tubing at lighted hills with lifts in Fraser. Snowmobiling throughout the valley.

Devil's Thumb Ranch & Snow Mountain Ranch are also both popular with wedding parties.

Layout: Over 2,000 square feet in this home. There are three bedrooms and 2 baths on the first level. Bedroom 2 has a king size bed and reading chair. Bedroom 3 has two twin beds. These bedrooms share a bath. (Tub and toilet separated by a door from counter and sink) Bedroom 4 has 4 bunk beds and a bathroom. Upstairs is the great room, kitchen and master with king size bed. Master area has doors that can be closed off so toilet and sink can be accessed by others on main level without disturbing master, which has its own additional private counter and sink.

Heat is individually controlled in each room, so everyone can have it set the way they prefer.

Also works well for two families to share - parents have the king beds, up to 6 kids in bunk or twin beds.

Updated kitchen has granite countertops and a generous supply of dishes, pans, utensils, crockpot, mixer, griddle- everything you need for cooking.

Ample woodpile on the property lets you enjoy cozy, real wood-burning fires while relaxing and enjoying the spectacular views of the mountains, Byers peak and the Fraser valley.

Direct TV with DVD player.

Garage with electric door lets you drive in without exposure to elements.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: This property has been in the family for years, but we took over in 2001. It is a favorite place to get away and enjoy the mountains, scenery and serenity and the kids have wonderful memories of the great times at the mountain house. It is available when we are not using it.

Why the Owner Chose Tabernash:
We love Grand county because it has everything you could want, from skiing in the winter to all the summer activities. Easier to get to from Denver than Summit County - no congested tunnel to worry about.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
When you stay at the house, you are off in a quiet reserve - all the properties nearby are acre plus lots. When you step out on the balcony, you see mountains and trees, not someone else's house or driveway or balcony. But in a few minutes you can be at the ski hill, the grocery store, at the lake or golf course or doing any of the many activities in the area.
