Private Homes, Frosty Acres lodge description

Our beautiful, recently built, Canadian-log home offers spectacular views of the Continental Divide, beds for an extended family of a dozen or more, and a fifteen-minute drive to Winter Park/Mary Jane ski resorts (the driveway and county road are plowed). The entire front of the house is spanned by picture windows and a deck.

The alpine and Nordic skiing are world-class. In summer, the fishing, hiking, rafting, and mountain biking are superb (we have all the trail books and guides).

Our family loves this second home, and we use it when we can re-gather our teenagers and college students to do so. We just began renting in 2008. Because we are acting as our own rental agents and are interested in renting only to responsible groups and families with a potential interest in return rentals, we are asking 25% less than the going market rate for a house of this quality and size near a Rocky Mountain ski resort.

Keywords: Canadian Log Cabin, giant picture windows, spectacular views, peaceful and healing
