This super charming and authentic yet plush/modernized Log Cabin is located right in the town of Winter Park! It sits on the mountain side, and there is a ski shuttle pickup stop right at the end of the driveway.
The cabin is fully furnished and feels cozy yet at the same time spacious and inviting. The wood logs and chinking look great and it's very cool and campy but has modern conveniences including free WIFI, 40' Sony Bravia with BluRay disc, Cable, a very private outdoor hot tub with 6' privacy fence, gas fireplace, washer and dryer (Eco-Ellie Detergent included), dishwasher, all kitchen cooking accessories, linens, everything. Plus, we just completed a brand new OUTDOOR DECK on the back of the house offering a wonderful outdoor relaxation place. We have a large Aspen grove behind the house and the deck offers a very peaceful and relaxing place to enjoy the trees, fresh air and unobstructed views of the mountain. The deck flows into the hottub and bbq patio area so you'll have plenty of privacy. We used a composite flooring material for the deck so no splinters/kid friendly:)
The main floor/living room area is open and spacious. Great for playing board games in front of the fire, watching movies on the big screen, hanging out and reading. We recently updated the living room with brand new cabin-style leather sofas (full and loveseat) for added style and comfort. The bedrooms are upstairs and include a Master bedroom with queen bed, and a guest/kids room with wood bunk bed plus a double bed. There is an additional stowable queen size mattress available on the main level for added sleeping options. The sunny and warm game room downstairs is just off the den and has a ping pong table (paddles and balls supplied). GREAT views from this room with the large windows facing the mountain. The sun/ping pong room leads to the outdoor porch which includes an outdoor gas barbecue and a professionally maintained outdoor hottub kept private by a 6 foot slat wood privacy fence. Wonderful view of the night sky from the hottub. Very relaxing, quiet, private and comfy and available year-round. This property is professionally managed/maintained and is very clean and well kept. In addition, we strive to be environmentally and eco-friendly and use cleaning products by Eco Ellie- a Boulder based company. This includes laundry detergent as well as basic cleaning supplies. These products work great and do not have the harsh chemicals such as bleach etc. Our cleaning folks use these eco/bio-friendly products exclusively for our cabin! There is also a train that passes through Winter Park; you can take the Amtrak right into town from Denver! The tracks are nearby, but not visible from the cabin. As of November 2011, the town of Winter Park will make certain the crossing at Vasquez Road is a quiet zone. This means the train conductors will not blow their whistle during the day/night except in the case of an emergency.

We enjoyed the cabin! Beautifully kept! We parked the car and rode to the Winter Park/Fraser Valley mountain bike trails from the cabin. Made food in the kitchen. Hot tub was wonderful after a long day of riding. Deck was awesome too! We will be back!

Very cozy cabin!
Very cozy cabin!
We had a great time during our first visit to Winter Park and truly enjoyed this cozy cabin. Great amenities with the TV, dishwasher, microwave, washer and dryer. Our family enjoyed many hours of fun at the ping pong table and the hot tub provided the perfect finish after hiking during the day. The only thing that could be improved would be the cable service for the TV. Very few stations would actually tune into the TV. However, that is where the ping pong table saved the day! Thank you for providing a very nice property to stay at. Much appreciated and highly recommend it to others.

Simple and satisfying
Simple and satisfying
On my trip to Bear Claw cabin unfortunately Winter Park had very low amount of snowfall. The cabin itself though was very nice and well maintained. Kitchen was simple and small with up to date appliances. The bathroom even though there is only one, it is very spacious and nice. It would have been nice for at least a half restroom, but we managed fine. My favorite things about the cabin was its cabin feel and the hot tub outside with a view but still private thanks to the fence. Its hard to find a cheap cabin with both of those features believe me I spent a long time searching all over Colorado and there are not many under 300 a night. The cabin provided many things to do in Winter Park and was very conveniently located with a bus stop right outside and even a nice little walk to the town. We didn't see much wild life, but im sure a lot of that was to do with the strange weather patterns going on this year. If I go back to winter park Colorado, this house will definitely be on my list of possible places to stay. The renters where very helpful and very nice.

Very nice, quiet cabin~ Stay was very nice and relaxing. We will be back again! The only thing that was objectionable...no window coverings at all in the cabin..the bathroom that looks out to the road is one that really would be nice to have coverings added. Other than that...it was a great stay away from home.

Great last minute trip:))

My boyfriend and I came for a last minute getaway from Denver. Wow, this place was a find!! Super cute, charming, romantic, cozy!!!!! We really didn't do much in the Winter Park village, we pretty much just hung out at the cabin. Played some board games, barbecued, soaked in the hottub, checked email and relaxed. Perfect little Denver getaway. :))) My boyfriend wants to come back during ski season with our friends, so we'll likely be back. Can't wait!! -Angela and Todd -

Quiet Zone Effective Nov 2011Guest comment entered by owner
Quiet Zone Effective Nov 2011
Good news about the train that runs through Winter Park! A quiet zone is in the process of being put into effect at Vasquez crossing (near the cabin). The town of Winter Park has done their part to prepare and they are just waiting for Union Pacific to install equipment there that will enable it to then be a quiet zone. The work is now scheduled to be completed in early November 2011. This means from that point forward Vasquez crossing will be a quiet zone and conductors are only to blow their whistle in an emergency situation. No more noisy train whistles! You can check the Town of Winter Park’s website for project updates: http://www.winterparkgov.com/Directory.aspx or you can contact us directly with any questions you may have. Thank you!

We really enjoyed our stay at Bear Claw Cabin! It was clean and very comfortable, the manager was very responsive and gave us some great tips. (Thanks for recommending Moe's!) The location was quite convenient to town yet private and there was plenty of room to stretch out. Having the hotttub right off the deck was perfect. We've stayed at other places in WP over the years but we enjoyed this place the most. :) Thanks for accommodating us Ashley! We'll definitely be back for ski season! -The Hazletts

THe location of the cabin was nice as was the jacuzzi. However, the train ran right by the cabin with a very loud horn at all hours of the day and night. With the windows open, we were awakened like clockwork at 11:30 p.m., 2:30 a.m., 4:30 a.m. and 6:30 a.m. During the day wasn't a big deal. The patio didn't have a dining table, which would have been nice to have outdoor meals. Rather, a small coffee table was there. Also note that there is one bathroom on the ground floor and the two bedrooms are on the second floor. This may be a problem for families with children.

Bear Claw Cabin and the Train
Bear Claw Cabin and the Train
I found it interesting that not a single review mentions that this cabin is very close to a train track. the train runs at all hours of the day and night. My wife and I found it almost impossible to sleep here. We have one more night left here, but I think we are going to pack up and go find another place to stay tonight and try to get some sleep. The cabin was nice and the manager was very pleasant and professional. There were no other issues other than the train. I should also mention that the train noise affects a lot of other properties besides this one. I would recommend you verify your proximity to the train track before renting anything in Winter Park or Fraser.

Owner response: We are sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay more in Winter Park! I'm glad that you at-least enjoyed our cabin. There is indeed a train that runs through Winter Park- this is also a benefit as it provides skiers an opportunity to reach the slopes directly from Denver. We always try our best to accommodate our guests- including picking up specific items as you requested. Again, sorry that the train interfered with your perception of Winter Park and the cabin! The tracks nor the train are visible from the cabin and quite a few rental condos and properties in WP are quite a bit closer to the track system! We would be happy to offer you a discount on a future stay if you'd like to try the cabin again! Best, Scott

About the owner: My name is Kaylee and and I manage Bear Claw Cabin for the owner Scott. We're here to answer any questions which you might have about the cabin and/or Winter Park. We hope you will choose our cute and comfortable cabin for your next vacation getaway!
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
Scott purchased this cabin because it was unique and charming and offered a vintage cabin feel yet was updated and comfortable to hang out in. There's a ski shuttle stop at the end of the driveway with free pick ups. You can walk into the town of Winter Park with restaurants, coffee shops and retail stores within 10 minutes. We chose Winter Park because it's close to Denver (about 1.25 hours drive) and the affordable, down-to-earth, family-friendly Colorado mountain town vibe.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
I love to come up to WP to enjoy the outdoor activities during the day; mountain biking and hiking in the summer and skiing in the winter. It's great being able to come home and relax at the cabin at night playing cards, jumping in the hottub, cooking, watching movies, hanging out. We especially love playing ping pong during the day in the always warm/sunny game room.
