Private Homes cabin description

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 spot. 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 stow-able 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 hot tub kept private by a 6 foot slat wood privacy fence. Wonderful view of the night sky from the hot tub. 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 spent a very relaxing weekend at Bear Claw cabin and enjoyed our stay. It's a great place for smaller groups, very cozy and comfortable. The listing was accurate although it looked a little larger in the photos than it is - but this was no problem for our group. The kitchen is small, but functional. The property was clean and in good shape, albeit a little worn. If you are picky and want perfection, go to a fancy hotel, but if you like relaxing in a cute place, near the town and ski area that feels like an old friend's cabin, you'll be happy. Jess was responsive and helpful when we had questions. We would definitely considering staying in the future.

                            The cabin is wonderful! We had a very nice stay. The kitchen was well equipped and there was cable and wifi. We would definitely stay there again. The bath tub has very little sticky tape. Both the wife and I almost slipped. Great cabin!!

                            Manager response: Thank you for your review, I'm glad you had a nice stay at the cabin! Now that we know we will be installing new grip tape on the bathroom tub ASAP. Hope to see you at Bear Claw again soon!

                            The cabin was neat and clean. Everything worked although we struggled with the fireplace for a while. We didn't ski but the shuttle to the resort had a stop right out in front if the driveway. We loved the hot tub and the close proximity to town. Would live to come stay again!

                            Manager response: Thanks Kristen for the review and feedback! We look forward to hosting you again soon.

                            The cabin is in an excellent location close to the main part of Town. Easy walking distance to trails and a great park. There are several very good restruants in the area. We found the cabin to be somewhat dark, musty, and in need of repair. The hot tub was not in good working order and the water was cloudy. Other items in need of repair included the front screen door and shower doors. The shower also needs some anti-slip in the botton. The carpeting was obviously old and beyond cleaning. The beds all seemed to be worn out, especially, the double bed in the master. With some work and a small investment in upgrades, this cabin could be very nice. In its current condition, we would not recommend it.

                            Manager response: Richard I'm so sorry you were dissatisfied with the cabin! We would like to take some time to address your concerns and reassure our future guests that we take guest feedback very seriously! We use a local, family owned hot tub maintenance company who cleans the hot tub after EVERY guest stay to check water quality, level and clarity. Our maintenance team does assure us the hot tub was left to standard in this situation, but we are investigating to ensure that the hot tub is 100% functional and clean for every rental. We sincerely encourage guests to notify us about problems right away so we can have maintenance performed immediately! You mentioned the screen door didn't shut easily. As a classic mountain cabin, there are going to be some quirks, and we always address the quirks immediately after learning about them! We have instructed our maintenance team to fix the door latch, or replace the screen door entirely if necessary. We do have anti-slip strips in the bathtub for safety. Our maintenance team has been instructed to install more anti-slip strips in the event that there wasn’t enough coverage. Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention, as guest safety is our highest priority! I'm not quite sure how to address your comment about the cabin being "dark and musty." This is something that has absolutely never been mentioned before by previous guests! The cabin features windows on all sides, including the upstairs bedrooms and the open, 5 window sun room just off the den. There should be a lot of natural light to brighten the cabin! We have the cabin professionally cleaned by the leading cleaning company in Winter Park "Grand Impressions" after every guest stay! We have the carpets professionally cleaned and the cabin gets a deep clean several times per year. We can guarantee the cleanliness of the cabin, and promise that any issues that arise are dealt with immediately. Please note that the cabin is not a brand new condo, and as such, offers the warm, cozy atmosphere that many guests love and expect from a mountain cabin. I appreciate the feedback, and I hope we have addressed your concerns! We apologize that the cabin didn’t meet your expectations, but after our discussion with you, it sounded like you did enjoy your stay overall. We hope that this response reassures future guests that we address any concerns immediately, and we appreciate hearing from you so that we can take action right away!

                            We rented "Bear Claw" for 2 weeks this summer with our Grand kids and 2 dogs. We all had a great time. A bear visited us one day to check out our dumpster and our granddaughter got it on video. Also a Red Fox, a young buck and numerous chipmunks! The location was perfect. Wolf Park, down the street was great for kids and dogs alike. The kitchen lacked a few things but we made do, and there were a few cleaning issues which Averi addressed right away. Would diffently stay here again if we come back to Winter Park.

Found the cabin clean and even more spacious than the pictures appeared. The location is convenient to Winter Park and Frazier and we had no trouble navigating to where we needed to go. A big Kudo's to Kaylee who was very helpful and pleasant to work with in setting everything up and answering many questions for me. Philip - Shreveport, la

                            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!

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.

                            Recommended for: Girls getaway, families with teenagers, pet owners, adventure seekers, romantic getaway, sightseeing.

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About: My name is Daphney and and I am currently managing Bear Claw Cabin for the owner Scott. I have lived in Grand County since 2003 enjoying all the great activities this valley has to offer. I live just minutes from the cabin and can answer any questions that you may have about the town or the ski mountain or provide any assistance that you or your guests may need. We hope you will choose our cute and comfortable cabin for your next vacation getaway!

                          Why 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.
