Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
This 1910 square foot condo was originally designed to be the retirement home of the Bears Den developer. Its huge great room has panoramic windows with views of both downtown Frisco, majestic Buffalo Mountain and the Front Range (including the 14er’s Grays and Torres Peaks), while the upstairs bedrooms offer the same, plus views of the Ten Mile Range. The Rowe sectional sofa is Relaxation Central, where tired skiers and hikers can stretch out in front of the fire, a view of Buffalo Mountain, and a 55-inch Samsung LED TV.
If you don’t fall asleep on the luxurious sofa and have enough energy for another short climb, ascend to the second level where you’ll have the choice of a Queen Bedroom with two new Simmons Beautyrest queen beds and private bath OR a King Bedroom with a Beautyrest king OR a Sunroom/Dayroom double twin daybed. The King and Day rooms share a full bath with glass shower enclosure. If kids or teens prefer “camping out” by the TV and fire in the A8 Great Room, twin-size inflatable beds and mats come with the unit to expand your group’s sleeping options.
Only one block from Main Street, Bears Den guests are only a short walk from a dozen dining experiences from the elegance of Vinny’s and the Blue Spruce Inn, to family fare at the Butterhorn, the Boatyard, Greco's and Kemosabe Sushi, to the best pizza in Summit County at Peppino’s. Top them off with an ice cream cone or fudge treat at Foote's Rest less than 100 yards from Bears Den. Or a local craft beer at The Moosejaw or the Brewery, also on Main Street. Not to mention browsing a multitude of shops offering sporting goods and clothing, ladies’ apparel, gifts and antiques, baby items, novelties, and bargain consignments.
Also less than one block from the Bears Den are the stops for the Summit Stage Free Shuttle, which will whisk you directly to Copper Mountain in 10 minutes, to Breckenridge in 20 minutes, and, with a shuttle change, to Keystone in about 30 minutes. Alternatively, you may take your rental car from your spot in Bears Den’s heated underground garage to any of the 4 local resorts in even less time, or to Vail (21 miles west) or Beaver Creek (34 miles west) via I-70.
Incidentally, Bears Den A8 is one of only 3 condos in Bears Den served by an elevator to the heated garage below, so hauling groceries or outdoor equipment need not involve tramping through the elements or up stairs.
In summer, you’ll have no need for a car to enjoy the frequent art shows and festivals on Frisco’s Main Street, or the July 4th Concert and Fireworks down at the Frisco Marina on Lake Dillon. In fact, the July 4th Parade ends just outside A8! Frisco is very safe, so family members of nearly all ages can come and go at each one’s individual pace and endurance, gaining access to A8 by using our special combination access (changed between rentals) so that there is no need to keep track of keys.
Since this unit is professionally managed and maintained by Book by Owner, you will be using bright-white sheets and 100%-cotton towels that are professionally cleaned, and you will have ready access to a local manager 24/7 for anything from a burned-out light bulb to an appliance question.
Overall, Bears Den A8 is as user-friendly an accommodation as any in Summit County. We’ll bet that you will want to return year after year.

About Maryann Stein
Hello! We are Maryann and Doug Stein, owners of Bears Den A8. Together, we have enjoyed many winter and summer vacations in Summit County. Residents of Florida, our trips to Colorado with family, friends and relatives have provided some of our most memorable vacations and adventures. We never tire of returning to Frisco, so we bought a condominium that we would like to share with you, not only to help defray our own expenses, but because we feel that it is a shame to let such a beautiful property remain vacant between our own trips. We hope you enjoy Bears Den, Frisco, and Summit County as much as we do.
Maryann Stein purchased this Condo in 2010
Why Maryann Stein chose Frisco
When our daughter enrolled in the University of Colorado at Boulder after years of family vacations to a multitude of ski resorts, we decided to purchase in our favorite town, Frisco. At pre-construction prices, we bought an adjacent unit (A7) in 2007 when A8 was still reserved for the builder of Bears Den. When his health changed and he decided to sell in 2010, we jumped at the chance to have two adjacent units to accommodate our extended family. Bears Den is in the heart of Frisco, one block from Main Street and just a sort walk from shopping and dining. Along with A7 and A9, it is one of only three units in Bears Den (1) served by an elevator to the heated underground garage and (2) with a large foyer serving the main entryway.
What makes this Condo unique
This unit provides ready access to 4 ski areas in winter and excellent hiking, including many 14er's, in summer. The location in the core area of Frisco near 2 stops of Summit County's Free Shuttle Bus means we hardly ever use the car except for groceries. The great room is a warm gathering place for large family groups and visitors from adjacent units. It is blessed with some of the best views in Bears Den, with huge windows that make us feel like we are enjoying the outdoors even while preparing gourmet meals in the spacious kitchen.

Everything was great!
Ridiculously close to the strip. The place was very big and very clean. Great for entertaining. Tons of beds. The only downside is that three of the beds are in the same room, which didn't work great for us snorers! Two car garage parking worked great. The kitchen was well stocked with all cooking and eating gear.
Very nice place, clean, well kept. Close to everything. The TV volume broke up every 10 seconds or so. That was the only issue we had.
Thank you for letting me know about the TV. I was unaware of a problem and will get on it ASAP.
Glad you enjoyed the condo!
Great Condo close to Main St
We had a great time in Frisco - condo was clean and spacious. Will definitely come back again!
Great place clean and comfortable
Would highly recommend stay here. Frisco is a great little town with wonderful restaurants
Thank you, Richard. So glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciate our location. Hope you can come back again!
We had a fantastic time staying here for a weekend skiing at Copper Mountain!
Glad you enjoyed your stay! Come back again sometime!
A great place for our trip
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the condo. It was very comfortable and spacious. And the kitchen is better equipped than any I've ever seen at a rental condo! We cooked in a couple of nights and had everything we needed. The fireplace really does warm the whole main floor. Great location - close to Frisco restaurants and I-70. The place was in great shape. Wasn't a big deal but it would have been nice to have a few more TV channels - particularly ESPN. Thank you, Maryann, for a great place to stay.
