This beautiful mountain home is centrally located in the Fraser Valley. It is luxury in a rustic mountain setting. The home is situated on a large wooded lot giving you the peace and tranquility you are looking for in a mountain getaway. Yet, the home is just minutes away from world class downhill skiing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, and many other mountain recreational activities. Summer activities offer hiking, mountain biking, rafting, golf, fishing, boating, as well as activities at the base of Winter Park Ski resort.

PLEASE CHECK ON DATES, EVEN IF BOOKED. We have 5 additional houses (VRBO 973869ha, 561533, 3634714ha, 714254 , and 714264 )

Relax in your own private hot tub or have some fun playing poker on a fully equipped poker table. There is also a big screen TV in the rec room with plenty of room for all to enjoy a movie together.

Sleeps 12 to 14 people comfortably. Master bedroom has a king bed, second bedroom has a queen bed, third bedroom has a queen bed, fourth bedroom has two double/twin bunks and there is a double sofa sleeper in the lower level recreation room.

Kitchen Amenities: The kitchen is fully equipped to enable you to create wonderful meals for all your guests. There is a full kitchen including a full size refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, and gas range and stove. We have included all the things that we find valuable in a home kitchen and have tried to have it available in our mountain home. As an example, we have included a coffee grinder alongside the coffee maker.

There are also plenty of dishes and utensils for two meals so one set can be in the dishwasher while you have enough for your next meal. We have included high quality pots and pans as well as additional small appliances that you would not normally have available in a rental home. Creating a huge meal like a thanksgiving meal with all the fixings is not a problem at our home!

Entertainment : The home has all the entertainment amenities that you want. Both living areas feature High Definition TVs with an HD satellite TV. Both entertainment systems include home theater speaker systems. We include a collection of DVD movies that are available for you to use.

Additionally, we have an X-Box 360 entertainment system for the kids. We also have a small collection of X-Box 360 games for use. For the adults, we have a Poker game table that we have equipped with poker chips - so no need to bring your own.

We also offer high speed internet with WiFi connection. You will need to bring a laptop or other device with you to access the internet.

We have an outdoor hot tub that has a heated walkway. No need to trample through ice and snow! It is so wonderful to sit in the hot tub after a day spent in the outdoors and enjoy the stars.

General Amenities: We provide plush bath towels as well as extra towels for the hot tub. We include a starting amount of necessitates -toilet paper, trash bags, and dishwasher detergent.

We have a new large capacity front loading washer and dryer for your use.

The home is heated through radiant floor heating which feels great when walking barefoot through the home on those winter days or when getting out of the shower and stepping on the warm floor tiles!

We also have a heated oversized garage with plenty of room for your ski equipment and mountain bikes.

The 0.67 acre lot allows for lots of room for snowball fights and for making snowmen. It also has an excellent open area for a gentle but thrilling 150 ft. sled ride. The kids seem to love spending their extra time playing outside even after a hard day of skiing.

Get ready to make some wonderful memories here in Winter Park and at our beautiful mountain home!

About Lacey Ochoa

We live in Denver, but we love coming up to the mountains together. Whether we want to have a fun-filled weekend or just a nice quiet one, we can get either up here.

Why Lacey Ochoa chose Winter Park

We love the family-friendly environment in Winter Park and the shorter drive than other resort towns.

What makes this house unique

Great mountain feel, views, and all the comforts of home.

Guestbook comments from the manager

For Thanksgiving this year, we decided to leave the Metro area and, as an extended family, try something different. The space in this mountain Vacation Rental was just what we needed to spread out and enjoy extended time together over the long holiday weekend. The kitchen was stocked with just about every appliance we could imagine! The beds were comfortable, and the space was large enough for all of us to not feel that we were on top of each other. There is a Safeway grocery store about 5 minutes away which was wonderful for the few food items we forgot to bring. Winter Park is only 8 minutes away as well. The main living area in this home is on the second story which makes for some incredible views. My 84 year old father was able to get up and down the stairs fairly easily.

All the Amenities of Home

  • 5 of 5

My colleagues and I (all business professionals) have been making an annual ski trip to the Winter Park/Fraser area for the last 6-7 years. We usually stay at a private home in the Fraser area for 7-8 days.

However, the Carabou Mountian home was the nicest and most well equipped home we have ever stayed in. We were all very pleased with the decor, comfort and warmth the home provided throughout our week long stay. The kitchen was the most well-equipped we have ever seen at any other residence we have frequented in the area. The home was extremely clean, conveniently located, and easily accessible. The owner was always prompt with his responsiveness regarding payment, expectations of the rental agreement, and questions concerning certain features of the home, even after our arrival.

The New Hong Kong Chinese Restaruant in Winter Park is outstanding and has some of the best Chinese cuisine I have ever experienced.

I would definitely highly reccommend this property to anyone who is looking for "all the comforts of home" combined with simplistic luxury during their vacation stay in the Winter Park/Fraser area.

This home was oustanding and I look forward to our trip and staying at this home again next year. This home was even more beautiful in person than the website portrayed.

You certainly won't be disappointed!!

The Perfect Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay at this Fraser/Winter Park house. The place was immaculately clean when we arrived and the communication from the property manager, Lacey was first rate and very professional. The house had everything that was advertised in the posting and a few extra bonuses that were a nice surprise like games, puzzles and baby gates for the stairs. I would definitely recommend this house and hope to stay here again!

Great property; friendly owner and manager!

  • 5 of 5

I recently rented this vacation home for a group of friends (we were out in CO for a wedding). We very much enjoyed our stay at this home! When I was making the booking and preparing for the trip, the house owner (Aaron) and the house manager (Nicole) were very friendly, flexible and helpful. They responded promptly to my inquiries and even helped us get discounted lift tickets to Winter Park! The house is well-appointed and has everything that you might need for a fun stay. This house was great for a big group of friends, but I would also think that it would be very suitable for families to rent. I would certainly rent this house again if I find my way back to CO! Thanks, Aaron and Nicole for a great stay!
