Private Homes house description

Located just 4 miles from Winter Park on 3/4 acre, with breathtaking views of 13,000 ft Byers peak. Walk 30 steps beyond the driveway to catch the free shuttle to the town of Winter Park as well as the ski area.

This Custom home was built using a centuries-old construction technique called 'timberframing.' Timberframe construction is typified by its use of large, exposed beams and logs connected by handcrafted, mortise and tenon joinery. It has a rustic feel, yet, has all the modern amenities. It has a second family room in the basement that includes a big-screen tv with video games, DVD, stereo, etc, which is perfect for the kids while the adults enjoy the main floor great room, which includes 20 ft vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, and a fully equipped media, audio center. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare that feast for your family and friends.

The surrounding area is a true Colorado gem, with over 600 miles of the best mountain biking and hiking trails. Walk to the fly fishing haven of the Fraser river or fish the headwaters of the Colorado River, just 25 miles away. Enjoy some of the country's most spectacular and challenging mountain golf courses. The winter is host to award-winning skiing and snow boarding at Mary Jane and Winter Park Resorts. The two areas spread across 5 mountains and 3,078 acres with 3,060 ft of vertical and an impressive 30 ft of snow per year. You can find terrain for everyone from the beginner to the most experienced adrenaline junky. Explore thousands of miles of snowmobile trails or make your own tracks in wide-open powder fields. You may choose from more exotic winter activities such as dog sledding and horse-drawn sleigh rides, to a tranquil, relaxing spa visit at Devil's Thumb Resort. Get excercise by snowshoeing or cross-country skiing.

Our house is available for rent throughout the year. Call for availability and rates.

                Great Family Ski Home Experience in Fraser

                Our family had a comfortable stay at the Custom Timber Frame Home in Fraser. The location was ideal for access to the ski area via the bus and the Fraser Safeway as we prepared our breakfast and dinners facilitated by the available kitchen ware. The warm timber frame atmosphere of the Great Room with views to the mountains and the large family table that accommodated our entire family of 9 made for a very enjoyable ski vacation. The listing description was accurate and the property was clean and well maintained. The owner was helpful in the booking process and I would recommend to friends and relatives.

                We stayed here for a girls getaway weekend (we are in our mid-40s) and the home is just beautiful! Plenty of room for the 13 of us. The home was clean and very comfortable. We loved the big open feeling of the main area as that is where we spent most of our time. The long table was perfect for all the meals we made and ate together, and cooking there was wonderful as all the kitchen appliances were modern and easy to use. GREAT views from the main windows. As I try to come up with items that I wasn't happy with, there are hardly any, but I would say the lighting over the dining table could be improved, but that is about it! The home looked just like the photos and the owner was very nice and helpful--communicated quickly with me. I would certainly recommend this home to others.

                Our family of nine stayed in this home for a week. We enjoyed everything about the home! The architecture of the home is beautiful and the view from the home is awesome. There was plenty of room for each of our kids and their spouses to have their own bedroom and bath. We had a baby with us so having a crib and high chair was so helpful. The owner was very kind and easy to work with. We would recommend this home to others for their vacation. We would stay here again!!

                We had 15 people stay at this house for seven days and there was plenty of room for everyone. It is located just a few minutes away from Safeway, which was a big plus as we made several trips since we ate most meals in. There were three space heaters available, which came in handy a few days for the basement dwellers. It snowed several days while we were there and we usually came back from skiing or another activity to have the driveway cleared, which we really appreciated. Overall we really enjoyed our time in Fraser, CO and didn't find any unfriendly people during our trip!

                We spent 5 nights July 19 - July 24 and what a fabulous time we had. We had 11 people in the house ranging from age 6 to 78 with plenty of room for everyone. We were surprised that it was actually in more of a neighborhood and not in a wooded area but in the end it was great as it was so convenient for everything we wanted to do. My son was actually the one who worked with Mark on everything but he was so helpful,including giving suggestions on different hikes we wanted to do. We normally stay in the Estees Park area so it was so fun to explore the Winter park area. Hiking was our main reason for vacationing there but we also enjoyed bicycling and water rafting. It is a family trip we will remember for ever! We would highly recommend this house if you our bringing a big group to Winter Park/Frazier area.

                We stayed at this comfortable home with two other families, including 8 kids all together. Everyone loved the house! There is plenty of room for the kids have their own space to hang out, and the adults a separate area. There were plenty of bathrooms for our large group. Overall we were very happy with this home!

                Home is clean, neat and conveniently located between winter park and sol vista ski resorts. Winter park shuttle stops right in front of the house. Appeared to have most everything we needed for the week. Couple of items of want...better lighting in bedrooms and at dining table, Internet was not functioning, only tv that got reception was in the living area. We would recommend staying here if you have transportation to get to grocery store and other areas besides winter park resort. Owner was extremely resourceful and responsive in providing information requested.

              Owner info

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
              We chose to build in the Winter Park area because we enjoyed visiting so much as children. We believe it is the last of the true 'Colorado Mountain Resort Towns'. It has just enough amenities to accommodate most interests, while maintaining a mountain town feel. As soon as we reach the top of Berthoud Pass and view the great continental divide and the Fraser Valley below, our stress is lifted. Smell the fresh mountain air, scented with pine trees and you will understand why we enjoy the area so much. We hope you will as well.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Our house has the ideal layout for our family and friends. It has 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms with 2 complete family rooms. This allows us to enjoy the company of larger groups without feeling cramped. We love knowing that our kids are having fun in the basement family room playing, watching movies or playing video games, while the adults enjoy time together on the main floor. Mornings are a treat as the sun illuminates the 13,000 ft., snow-capped, Byers Peak framed by our large windows in the back of the house. The vaulted great room is accented by large wood beams and logs, giving you the feel of a true mountain getaway.
