About the property

This former model unit won both the Parade of Homes Grand Award as well as the People's Choice Award for Trailhead Lodges with its extensive upgrades and amenities. Directly overlooking the new Hideaway Park concert stage, during the summer you can enjoy the weekend music festivals, Thursday night concert series, and all the other events from the comfort of your own living space and patio. Or, with it's playground, skate park, and sledding hill, you can watch your children play as you pull together lunch in the upscale kitchen.

As we are frequent VRBO renters in our own travels, we continuously are amazed with how few conveniences and supplies many property owners provide. Rarely do we roadtrip to a rental without a heavy bin of basic oils and spices, quality knives, etc. Being foodies who love to create an atmosphere around gourmet meals for our families and friends, too many kitchens lack the most basic of supplies. Not here. Cutco knives, food processor, waffle iron, Weber gas grill, martini glasses, ample baking and cookware... trust us, leave your bin at home. We even have a cooler, picnic supplies, camp chairs etc to take a picnic outdoors. With the upgraded stainless steel GE Cafe appliances, the gas stove works beautifully, and the dishwasher is whisper quiet. We have set this condo up for our lifestyle, and choose to share it with you. We carry this philosophy through the rest of the condo as well.

We have furnished and decorated the living space with an upscale mountain feel. The condo has beautiful wood and tile flooring, while the bedrooms are carpeted for your comfort. Radiant heat provides warm floors and consistent heat throughout. For the sleeping arrangements, the master suite has a full king bed set and attached full bathroom. The second has a queen set and the third a set each of twin/twin and twin/full bunks. Each have full bathrooms adjacent in the hallway, and all bedrooms have a humidifier for your comfort. All mattresses were newly purchased in 2017 and are quite comfortable. The condo includes a full size washer/dryer (detergent provided). If you have little ones with you, we have furnished a pack n play, booster seat, and eating/drinking utensils. Plenty of games, books, and DVD's for all ages as well. You will have a privately assigned key code for your party which changes with each booking, allowing everyone easy access.

Trailhead Lodges is the most sought over property for vacation renters in Winter Park. It's just steps from restaurants, shops, hiking and biking trails, and the free shuttle bus. The well adorned clubhouse includes a heated pool (open year round) and hot tub, pool table and social area, gym, and an outdoor patio with fire pit and grills. If you're into mountain biking, hiking, or cross country skiing, we're right on the Fraser River Trail (with winter grooming) and Idlewild. All this and the heart of the town is literally outside your front door. And while the ski resort is just a couple minute drive up the road, leave the car and catch the free resort shuttle.

Due to our rare location of having stage views of the Rendezvous Event Center and Hideaway Park, we will open up summer 2019 dates as events are announced. Please note we are already booked for the 2019 Jazz Fest.

Check in time is 4PM, check out is 10AM - but we're flexible when possible.

About Steve Peterson

Steve and Shawna Peterson migrated to Colorado from Illinois and southern California to enjoy all the beauty and mountain sports this state has to offer, and haven't regretted a day of it. Often they can be found wakeboarding, hiking, skiing, biking or enjoying a favorite camping spot. They are co-owners of this property with their longtime friend Keith Robinson.

Keith's travels after growing up in Indiana included working in the hospitality business in Guam, Thailand, and Australia. Feeling it was time to settle back in the states, he chose Colorado for it's adventurous, outdoor lifestyle.

Why Steve Peterson chose Winter Park

The views are amazing from this property. With mountains in the background, directly in front of the living area is Hideaway Park. Winter Park has built a new $3M+ Rendezvous Event Center stage here, and the views from our patio directly overlook this. From the free Thursday night concert series to the big Jazz Festival weekend, you can enjoy all the music and sights from your own living space. In the winter the town grooms the sledding hill and provides free sleds, again just steps from our door.

Winter Park has many great restaurants and shops just a short walk from the condo. While it's centrally located downtown, it's quiet being a block off Main St. The heated pool is open year round, and the hot tub is perfect for a soak at the end of the day. The clubhouse is a great place for kids or adults alike to hang out and shoot a game of pool. Or if outdoor sports aren't enough, the exercise room has everything needed for a full workout.

Trailhead is wonderful location for your Winter Park vacation. Our condo was the award winning model unit for Trailhead, with all the upgrades you could hope for views that can't be beat.

Colorado Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our family’s vacation. Having the park across the street was perfect for our two grandsons. The skate park was a pleasant surprise and they enjoyed using the scooter we bought them. We could walk to so many restaurants...the location was perfect.

Having three full bathrooms was a huge plus for us too. Lots of privacy for everyone. The kitchen was stocked with every gadget imaginable. We did cook quite a few meals including a couple of nights that we grilled.

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Winter Park and are considering coming back next summer!

Convenient, terrific accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful rental! It is very close to downtown and you can easily walk to restaurants, bars, coffee shops, the park, etc. It's only a short drive or shuttle ride to the Winter Park resort, and we much preferred staying close to town rather than in the resort.

The unit itself was immaculate, fully equipped and beautifully appointed. Nice big bedrooms, spacious bathrooms stocked with anything you'd need (shampoo, conditioner, soaps, lotions), and very comfortable living room, kitchen, and dining area. The deck off the living area has a direct, close-up view of the stage so you could easily stay, bbq, and watch concerts without ever having to leave the unit.

What we really appreciated about our stay was the fact that the unit had so much more than just bedrooms, bathrooms, and a kitchen, though. The owners have really gone above and beyond to make sure they can provide for whatever your needs may be. We brought our 5-month-old and they had a brand new pack n play for us to use. They have games, books, and movies. There are chairs and a cooler you can take for a picnic. All the appliances are high-end and there are plenty of dishes, glasses, silverware, and Cutco knives, making it easy to stay in and cook. We had a great time and can't wait to come back!

Couldn't have asked for a better experience!

  • 5 of 5

The value of this gem can't be overestimated. Every little detail in the home has been thought of which led to a very comfortable weekend get-away. The close proximity to restaurants is super convenient but I found we didn't want to leave for meals; the well-stocked kitchen made food prep easy and our group's preferred alternative. Trail access is unparalleled ... we were able to be on great hiking/biking trails within minutes of lacing up our shoes. I'll definitely be back!

Can't wait to stay again!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is a fantastic place to stay with friends and family—there’s plenty of room and endless list of things to do. The space is spotlessly clean and fully supplied. You’ll feel like you’re staying in a home when you open the cabinets and find everything you need to prepare a meal from pots and pans to olive oil and spices. Elsewhere you’ll find toiletries, fresh towels, warm blankets and plenty of storage. There’s a grill and a patio table on the covered balcony that overlooks a grassy field where there are often concerts.

The condo is centrally located in Winter Park. It’s in walking distance to shopping and food, and Winter Park offers a free shuttle to the slopes and the next town over called Frasier (more food and fun!). There’s a hot tub and pool on site as well as a cosy fireplace in the living room, which makes for a relaxing stay.

We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. This space goes above and beyond in every category and really does make for a great vacation.

So much fun. Comfort, cleanliness, and location!

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing. I have stayed at many mountain town condos and this one is my favorite. It is not an average rental condo, but truly feels like a home. From all the fine touches of comfort to some pretty great board games, this place had it all. The music venue is literally right across the street there to totally enjoy it as if sitting inside. Huge value. Also, there are amazing mountain biking trails right from the condo so while my legs are still a little upset, my heart is happy. Close to shopping, restaurants, and nature this place will be the place I go to when I go to Winter Park.

Owner's Response: The condo actually is our second home, so it's fully stocked and the only things we lock away are our personal items. We really enjoy giving our guests all these extra amenities to make for a comfortable, easy stay. Thanks for the great feedback!

Stunning property with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Great unit with perfect views of town and the nearby park. All the amenities within the unit are top quality and the access to the park and nearby trails made this a great rental. Eat at Denos!
