Luxury Ski Lodge and Modern Mountain Home!

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

Welcome to the web home of our new ski lodge right outside of Winter Park, Colorado (in Fraser).

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.)

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. Flat screen 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 90 mile drive from Denver International Airport, usually less than two hours.

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.

Check out our web page, with photos and map.

And please call or e-mail us with any questions, or for reservation information.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for the place... it was really great... weather was warmer than I expected, but it snowed more too... Rina and her husband were extremely nice and helpful...and the kids had fun playing with Buster the dog... Thanks again... I'll recommend your place to everyone who may be looking to head that way...

Spacious and comfortable!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this property. With 9 extended family members (3 couples, 2 kids and a teen) we felt that the layout provided ample privacy (5 bathrooms!!) as well as lots of communal space. The home was very clean and beds were comfortable. Amenities such as mud room for ski gear, laundry room and hot tub were the icing on the cake!

Great House at a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the days between Christmas and New Years

Three families, 6 adults and 3 small children. The house was perfect, there were bedrooms that suited each family, each with its own bathroom. The house is fully equipped from a cooking, entertainment and internet point of view. The location in the town of Fraser was very convenient and our hostess , Rhina Blixt was helpful and friendly.

Such Comfort Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome place to stay. So much room for the whole gang. This was a ski vacation for the family. 13 of us and we all had a bed. The kids took over the bottom level - we couldn't hear them playing their games or the TV. Everything you need to have a great stay is in this house! Lots of room for everyone to gather in the kitchen area. And, what a view. We sat on the deck with our coffee and just stared at the mountains. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable, spacious, place to stay - this is it. And thank you to the town of Fraser for having sleds at the park that anyone can use. The little ones had a great time on the sledding hill!

Great, big modern space!

  • 5 of 5

Setup is perfect for couples - four rooms with separate bathrooms. Great big gathering space with idyllic views. Fraser is centrally located in Grand County - easy to get to and from attractions.
