Property description

Close to the ski area, our house is located in the Town of Winter Park (not in neighboring cities with subdivision names containing Winter Park). The house is at the end of a dead-end street, where the forest begins. No neighbors on one side of us - just the Arapaho National Forest! Quiet location, far from the highway, trains and traffic.

From the end of our driveway, you can begin on forest trails for hiking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing (6 pairs for your use), and bicycling. You can take a trail beginning at our driveway and travel to the Winter Park ski resort (downhill to us from the ski resort). Otherwise, the ski shuttle comes a few doors away and will take you for FREE to the ski resort which is a ten-minute ride. You can walk to downtown Winter Park and free ice skating (we have 32 pairs of skates) in under thirteen minutes.

You will be cozy at night underneath flannel sheets in each of the four bedrooms and a loft. The large master bedroom has a king-size bed (and adjoining bath with jacuzzi two person tub), one bedroom has two bunk beds with a full bed on the bottom of each, two bedrooms have queen-size beds (one of these rooms has a futon, too). Our loft has a queen-size sleeper, TV and glider chair. The living room has a sage green Lazy Boy queen-size sleeper with a built-in air mattress (comfortable!).

Our kitchen was just remodeled with granite countertops, new cupboards, and new appliances. We have pots, pans, and dishes just like you have at home. There is cable TV with DVD, and plenty of board games for family and friends' fun time.

If you want to be one second (literally) from the forest where you can take off on your snow shoes (we have some for you to use) or cross-country skis for a peaceful trek, and a place which is quiet from traffic and trains, contact us. Since we have allergies, our place is smoke and pet free.

You will need a front wheel drive, 4WD or AWD vehicle during a winter visit. Never bring rear wheel vehicles into the Rocky Mountains in the winter time, as you must travel over a 12,000 foot pass and up some steep inclines.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Beth and Terry live in Littleton, Colorado, and personally care for our vacation home. We often clean the home ourselves, and pay attention to cleanliness and detail that we look for when we travel. You can rest assured that we have a visitor's eye toward keeping the house in good repair so you will feel at home and tell your friends about your great experience. Terry is a Colorado attorney at the omalleylawoffice.com and Beth is a Registered Nurse. We thank the Lord for the beauty of Colorado and Winter Park!

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
We searched for a second home in the City of Winter Park rather than in a nearby town because we wanted to be close to the ski area. This home is at the end of a street where the forest begins, and there are no neighbors on that side. You can step out the front door and within 5 seconds be in the Arapaho National Forest - the site of the Winter Park Ski Resort. You can even hike or cross country ski to the ski resort. You can downhill ski back from the resort. This home was a perfect choice because it is away from the highway and train which pass through town, yet within the city limits. There is a stream within a five minute hike into the forest.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Quiet, yet close to the ski area. You can look out off the deck while grilling on the natural gas grill, and peer into the forest where elk, moose, deer and fox are regularly seen. You can mountain bike on hundreds of miles of interconnected trails beginning at the base of our driveway. You can also walk to the outdoor ice skate rink and sit at the fire pit while the children skate. We have 36 pairs of skates and six pairs of snow shoes for your free use.
