Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: Peter and Maureen are former midwesterners (south side of Chicago) who have been in love with Colorado for many years. Our 4 children were all born in Colorado and love the outdoors. Although we enjoy living in central Denver, our escape is to the hideaway in Frisco. Our picture reflects a wonderful vacation in Alaska.
We have met visitors from all over the world through VRBO, both renting to others and from others for our own travels. We love VRBO people who honor our home and provide us charming homes all over the world.
Why the Owner Chose Ten Mile Island: After years of camping in the mountains and renting places in Frisco from friends, we found our mountain escape in 2005. We love the mountain stream outside our bedroom and living room doors and the simple living that we enjoy while up there. We can leave our car in the lot and walk, bike or bus anywhere we need to go- a real escape from the busy city life.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: We have furnished our place in a way that we would want it furnished for ourselves, from movies, to books to simple cookbooks and bikes for summer and fall rides. Frisco is the ultimate small town, walking or biking distance to everything yet not the typical busy tourist town. Part of our willingness to rent our place,when we are not there to others, is a sincere desire to share it and keep it alive rather than leave it empty. And our guests consistently reflect their welcome feelings in their comments back to us.
