About Brian Anderson

This property has been in the family for years, but we took over in 2001. It is a favorite place to get away and enjoy the mountains, scenery and serenity and the kids have wonderful memories of the great times at the mountain house. It is available when we are not using it.

Brian Anderson purchased this house in 2001

Why Brian Anderson chose Tabernash

We love Grand county because it has everything you could want, from skiing in the winter to all the summer activities. Easier to get to from Denver than Summit County - no congested tunnel to worry about.

What makes this house unique

When you stay at the house, you are off in a quiet reserve - all the properties nearby are acre plus lots. When you step out on the balcony, you see mountains and trees, not someone else's house or driveway or balcony. But in a few minutes you can be at the ski hill, the grocery store, at the lake or golf course or doing any of the many activities in the area.

Fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED the Lion's Den this past weekend while we attended Korean Heritage Camp at Snow Mountain Ranch nearby. We had three families of three in our party and everyone was very comfortable. Highly recommend, it was an amazing place!!

Return visit

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 had a great time at the Tabernash house. We are return visitors as we were there four years ago. We prepared our meals each day and everything we needed for preparation was available. The kids and several adults enjoyed the downhill tubing at Snow Mt. Ranch. One usually thinks of tubing and snow together, but tubing with no snow was enjoyed by all. They also spent a day at the alpine slide in Winter Park with only two visiting the first aid station. Even after that visit the boys said it was worth the pain. The boys went home with t shirts that said, "I lost my hide on the alpine slide." The fishing wasn't good as the guys tried four lakes and only caught two small ones. A trip to Grand Lake was made more fun with a pontoon boat ride around the lake with a guide telling about the lake, the houses and the interesting people who live there. This area is in the middle of lots of activities for the family and we highly recommend it.

Lots of room upstairs. Kitchen was wonderful. Cooked all of our breakfasts and dinners and had everything we needed. Loved having a washer and dryer. Master bed was great.

Owner's Response: A deck specialist is coming to do a routine maintenance check on the trex deck as we noticed a few minor things, but I was there today and enjoyed sitting on the deck- its a great view. We've never heard of anyone sliding off the beds!

Great getaway in the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families, one of four and one of five people. 2 toddlers, a kindergartner and 2 teenagers. This place was perfect! Plenty of space for everyone. The views are gorgeous and we felt a million miles away. Yet, the drive into town was short. The grocery store was nearby along with restaurants (although we did most of our cooking at the house in the fully stocked kitchen). Skiing, tubing, YMCA all close by. Take advantage of the rec center and the great pool-our kids all loved it!! We plan to go back again.

Comfortable Cabin

  • 4 of 5

We were two families sharing the cabin and the space available was perfect for us. The cabin was spacious and inviting. We made use of the kitchen and it had everything we needed to make our meals. We enjoyed the fireplace, as we used it every night. The washer and dryer came in extremely handy with 6 kids. The cabin does not have WIFI, but I was happy about that, it made our kids be creative and play outside. The cabin is only a short distance from Winter Park, but far enough to not feel like you are in a tourist trap. This was a perfect Christmas vacation, we even got snow on Christmas day. We recommend this cabin and we would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks. We did add a blender as someone noted that with a very complete kitchen, we didn't have a blender for smoothies. We do now.
