Overview

About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrs, 4 Baths, 7 beds(Sleeps 2-10), Gourmet Kitchen, Stone fireplace

Beautiful log cabin nestled in the woods with dramatic views of Continental Divide (four-wheel drive a must in the winter). Private deck with large hot tub and gas grill. You'll marvel at the warmth your family/group feels around the river stone fireplace. Fourteen people can crowd around the handcrafted wood dining room table playing games while the cooks listen in from the gourmet kitchen. Every inch of this cabin was crafted by top rated finish carpenters. You'll marvel at the unique touches throughout. Each bathroom has its own Kohler fixtures (like a two-person jetted tub and old fashioned claw foot one) creating a distinct environment. The most frequent comment we hear from guests, 'Your pictures don't do it justice.' All manner of mountain sports are nearby. We're walking distance from the Arapaho National Forest and just a short drive to Winter Park Ski Area. A perfect setting for romance (we've had many small weddings) or family reunions and group get-togethers.

About Steve and Sharon Torgerson

We built our beautiful log cabin in 1995. We have enjoyed the wonderful wooded national forest surrounding our home and the amazing ski resort in Winter Park

Steve and Sharon Torgerson purchased this cabin in 1995

Why Steve and Sharon Torgerson chose Granby

We build our log cabin in 1995. It is nestled near the Arapaho National Forest and close to the Winter Park/Mary Jane Ski Area. We love to ski and all the winter and summer sports that are abundant in our area.

What makes this cabin unique

The summer is also a great time to be in the mountains of Colorado. In addition to the great hiking and mountain biking we are close to the Rocky Mountain National Park. We are also around 70 miles from downtown Denver which offers many city delights.

This was a great rental!

  • 5 of 5

My family of three and my sister's family of four stayed in this cabin for several days. It was very roomy, peaceful and in a good location. There was a lot of nature around the property and we enjoyed the beautiful views from the deck. The hot tub was very nice and relaxing as well.

This was a great place! The owners and caretakers were there for our every need and were very accommodating. Overall this was one of the best rentals I've used!

The Perfect Secluded Cabin for a Group

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible experience staying at this cabin with our group of 10! It is nestled in a beautiful valley, perched on a hillside, which gives the cabin wonderful views of the surrounding mountains. It feels very secluded, even though you're only 10-15 minutes from town. The sleeping arrangements are very comfortable for 10 people, and the kitchen and living room areas are spacious for the whole group to hang out in. The kitchen was fully supplied with great cooking equipment, there is a huge communal table to eat at and play games on, and the TV area has a cozy fireplace and comfy leather couches. All of the tile floors are heated too! It was very clean and well-maintained.

Our favorite part of the cabin was the big hot tub that is conveniently set on the corner of the huge deck. It was amazing for relaxing in after a day of outdoor activities, and on a clear night you can sit in the hot tub and gaze at the stars.

The owners of the property were very responsive throughout our planning prior to the weekend, and the caretakers that lived below were always quick to reply to our questions or requests. They live right there on the bottom floor so it is very convenient for them to help with anything, while at the same time it felt like we had the whole property to ourselves. They gave us complete privacy for the whole stay, and they had a separate entrance and driveway.

We HIGHLY recommend this vacation home for a group looking for beautiful views, affordable rates, a spacious cabin, and responsive hosts! The nearby town of Fraser has a Safeway and some bars and restaurants to visit. Also, it is very close to snowshoeing and cross-country ski trails, as well as Winter Park Resort and the Fraser sledding hill!!

Perfect view & cozy feel!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is like the perfect hidden gem with breathtaking views from every room and the coziest feel! I stayed with a group of friends for a week and it wasn't nearly long enough! It's far enough away from the nearest town to get that exclusive cabin in the woods feel but only a short drive into town to head in as often as you wanted... The guy who was managing the place was very kind and knowledgeable and respected our space and privacy. I would highly recommend this resort for any type of vacay!

I've been to Winter Park to ski, but the place has a special magic in the summer. Dancing Aspen has its own cultivated stretch of native wildflowers bordering the driveway, and the view from the deck on the other side stretches for miles of green hills and rambling clouds. The place is comfortable, quiet, and a great place to share with friends. I completed a writing project I had planned and hope to visit again soon.

The aspens really do dance!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was amazing! The owners were very accommodating and helpful. The view from the deck is a perfect combination of mountains in the distance, horses grazing in nearby fields, and beautiful aspen trees surrounding the cabin. The leaves are absolutely mesmerizing when the wind blows during the day, the sun set really is like something you would see in a sappy movie, and the stars are breath taking at night! The sky was so clear that we saw satellites streak across the sky from the deck jacuzzi. As if that weren't enough, the state park is near by for hiking and if you need anything you can make a quick run into town.

I really recommend this cabin and I hope I can come back soon! Enjoy your stay!

Winter Park/Fraser Valley is an outdoor paradise. It is skied by more people from Colorado than any other slopes in the State. There is wilderness, the Rocky Mountain National Park, tons of summer activities, a recreation center and all the summer activities of the mountains.
