About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)
The story is that we are friends from all over, but mostly out of New Orleans. We decided we needed an evacuation shelter, up real high, because we've learned that you just never know. (Hence we are calling it the Cat 5 Lodge, as in Category Five hurricane. Not as in Cat 5 cable, but we got that run all over the house too.)
We have designed and detailed our home full of luxuries for ourselves. Simple but we think important stuff like extra comfortable beds and roomy closets and baths. Broadband access hard-wired into every room, along with an office furnished with a computer and color printer/copier/fax. Yeah, of course wireless everywhere. So if you feel like working on your laptop in the hot tub, knock yourself out - it's huge, with a great view. Plasma TV, surround sound, full cable, kid's separate entertainment room downstairs, plenty of New Orleans CDs! Large main room with great view over the Fraser Valley.
Party kitchen, since they always end up there, cork floor, double oven, feng shui worthy gas range, fridge with water in the door - ice on the floor. Naturally, expandable dining table, comfy couches, rubber floored mud room for your boots and skis/boards at the front entrance, heated garage, laundry room, even poker chips.
Not so naturally, in-floor radiant heat. Awesome - if you’ve never experienced it, once you’ve gone radiant you can't go back. No extra-dry blown hot air, no big temperature swings or uneven hot and cold spots, and your feet are always warm. Laugh at the snow while you're barefoot and happy.
Oh, yeah! Four Bedrooms - three with queen beds and one with a 2 twins that can make a king - perfect for the kiddies or young at heart adults. Five full baths, each bedroom has its own, plus there's one on the main floor. Fold out couch downstairs, two roll-away cots, and the upstairs couch is even sleepable, all perfect for the hangers-on friends. We can put 12 people in beds, but, honestly, that would be a very full house. We're set up for four couples, or a family spread into four bedrooms, ideally.
Our home is located in Fraser, CO, three miles down the valley from Winter Park. Fraser is the real town, full of locals and very few tourists. The Safeway and the saloon are just down the hill. And we're on the free shuttle line for the ski area - actually two of the free shuttle lines, so a bus passes every 15 minutes going and coming, and drops you off at the Winter Park base. We're a little less than an hour and 30 minute drive from Denver International Airport.
So if you want to stay in a hotel room, go for it, and have a good time. Winter Park is great. But if you want to stay in a home, your own fridge and kitchen and hot tub and plasma TV and lots of space and furnished, so you can actually relax after a full day on the mountain, we think we've got a great spot. We'd better think that, because it's what we wanted.
