Property description

We invite you to our home away from home on Ten Mile Creek, Ten Mile Island Complex located in the town of Frisco, Summit County, Colorado ... minutes away from incredible summer biking, hiking, sailing on Lake Dillon, fishing on the Blue River, downhill and Nordic skiing (4 ski areas in Summit County) - a perfect family vacation spot. The condo is very comfortable for 4 adults, though it can accommodate up to 6. The indoor pool and clubhouse make the complex a great place for families.

Winter skiing is world class. Keystone, Copper Mountain, Breckenridge, Arapahoe Basin and Loveland ski areas are a 15 to 20 minute drive. Vail and Beaver Creek are approximately 30 minutes drive. Year round FREE shuttle service to all Summit County Ski areas and towns is one short block away.

Our ground floor unit has Ten Mile Creek running just feet from the patio and Mount Royal views are just out the front door. A cozy real fireplace with lots of wood on the patio, a fully equipped and remodeled kitchen, and wooded setting will make your stay a true escape year round. Summer hummingbirds will greet you on the back patio, and blue jays year round.

The unit sleeps 4-6 in about 1000 square feet. The master bedroom has a California king size bed, feather duvet, tv with cable and DVD, adjacent bathroom and separate sink area. The second bedroom has a queen size bed, duvet, sink in the room and bath down the hall, and the sounds of Ten Mile Creek just outside the window. The large living room has a queen size sofa bed.

The cupboards are stocked with everything-even spices and teas. Games, puzzles, books, music CD's and videos/ DVD's are yours to use. The flat screen TV has Comcast cable and On-Demand programming. For the kids, a complete set of classic Faerie Tale Theatre videos. We have also compiled a dining guide and detailed list of our favorite places in and around Frisco/Summit County. Wi Fi access in the unit and blue ray player on the tv. We also have 2 adult mountain bikes, complete with helmets/locks and European baskets available for your summer and fall use. Bike trails abound in Summit County.

The charming town of Frisco is an easy walk from our place and has many restaurants, shops, coffee bars and historical attractions. Away from the crowds of the large ski towns, Frisco has a real home town and very green feel. A great group of Colorado people are in the town to serve you. No need to hassle the parking at ski areas. The free Summit Stage offers close and free access to all Summit County ski areas and towns. Access to bike and hiking paths are only blocks away. A brand new Whole Foods offers great options for groceries and ready cooked meals.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

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 also provide to 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 2004. 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.
