Private Homes, Winter Park Ranch house description

This hand crafted luxury cabin is the perfect family base camp to explore the beautiful Fraser Valley and Colorado’s favorite ski resort – Winter Park. With 4 bedrooms and over 3000 square feet of rustic charm, there is plenty of space for family socializing or quiet privacy. The Master bedroom has a king bed and a separate lounge with its own fireplace. The 2 larger bedrooms have queen beds, closets and dressers, while the kid’s bedroom has twin bunk beds. The family/breakfast room is adjacent to the fully equipped gourmet kitchen. It features a library/big screen entertainment system and the wood burning stove. Just outside the family room is a huge raised backyard deck with gas grill, built in seating, and a 6 person hot tub. It overlooks a private pond which is fed and aerated by an artificial stream that runs from the upper reflecting pond adjacent to the spacious upper flagstone patio. High Speed Wi-Fi is broadcast throughout the home. Both of the full baths have Jacuzzi spa tubs. The inviting and cozy living room, adjacent to the large dining room features a stone gas-log fireplace. SUPERinsulation and solar orientation of the home design provides natural warmth,which is augmented by the Vermont Castings™ soapstone wood burning stove (with a lifetime of split wood supplied) and in-floor radiant heat.

Winter Park Ranch is a secluded, peaceful subdivision located above the village of Fraser, at an elevation of nearly 9000 feet. It is thickly forested with spectacular views of the nearby rugged Continental Divide peaks and wilderness. The natural beauty imparts a sense of peace and tranquility to those lucky souls who visit here. Hiking and mountain biking trails leave from our doorstep. Friendly foxes, moose, deer and bear regularly visit our backyard pond. Winter Park resort is an easy 15 minutes drive or the free ski bus stops 3 doors down the road every 30 minutes.

Although most VRBO guests are looking for an exclusive private family retreat , we are also able to offer the option of catered meals, laid out buffet style, on your schedule, for an affordable Bed and Breakfast type experience. This little extra will allow our guests more time to relax after a vigorous day on the mountain. We can also help with affordable, private Certified® professional ski/snowboard lessons, mountain guiding, and equipment tuning. Please call Robin, at 970-531-7768 with any questions. (Note: a seperate caretaker's apartment is located in the basement, accessed from a private entrance).

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: Robin is a retired homebuilder from Boulder, where he maintains his primary home. He is a former 'outdoor adventure' educator with the OUTWARD BOUND schools and a PSIA certified ski instructor.

                          Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Winter Park Ranch:
                          After spending many wonderful family ski vacations and camping trips in this area, 15 years ago we chose the Fraser Valley as the perfect area to build our Colorado second home . We are more than happy to share our connections and knowledge of the area with our guests.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The peace and tranquility of this home in the Colorado high country is both soothing and reinvigorating. Spending the day exercizing in the great outdoors, whether skiing, biking or hiking, and then relaxing in the outdoor private hot tub with friends and family under the starlit sky just doesn't get any better.
