This property is a private mountain home in downtown Winter Park within a few blocks walking distance to town. Just a few blocks from summer festivities in the park. 1 block from the ski shuttle route in the winter with a 5-10 minute ride to the slopes. The house backs onto a large open meadow with great views of the mountain trees and sky, which gives privacy and a feel of the mountains right in the middle of town. Easy to find with only 2 turns from the main street of Winter Park.
There are two living areas. The great room in the front includes the kitchen and the living room with DirectTV satellite TV (DVR/On Demand) and a DVD player. A big, comfortable sectional couch sits in front of a gas fireplace and flat screen with incredible picture.
The kitchen has all appliances (including a dishwasher), and is stocked with dishes, utensils, cookware, coffee maker, a crock pot, a panini maker, a waffle maker, an electric griddle, and more. There is a large kitchen table that can seat 6-10 (and extra folding table and chairs as needed).
The den is located in the back and has a second flat screen TV, a ping pong table, a double futon couch and great views of the backyard and meadow. A cabinet with games, puzzles and various novels for additional entertainment are provided.
There is free WIFI throughout the house.
There are 3 bedrooms. Upstairs is bedroom #1 with a king size bed and flat screen TV (sleeps 2) and bedroom #2 with 2 sets of twin bunk beds (sleeps 4). Downstairs is bedroom #3 with a full bed and a set of twin bunk beds (sleeps 4). The futon in the den also folds out to a double bed that is very comfortable (sleeps 2).
There are 2 full bathrooms - 1 downstairs with a jet tub and one upstairs with a shower
Linens and towels are provided, with extras in the linen closet if needed along with extra blankets and comforters. There is a washer/dryer in the house.
The backyard has a private outdoor hot tub with great jets and starry night views. There is a new outdoor sauna perfect after a long day on the slopes (or while everyone else is skiing). There is a gas BBQ with grilling utensils. Lawn furniture and picnic tables in the summer. A large grassy front yard as well with Aspen trees. Covered patios in the front and back. Great front porch swing for enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning or a cocktail in the evenings.
There is an attached 2 car garage (only 1 space available for parking) with some bikes available for use in the summer. Automatic snow removal when there is 4 or more inches of snow. There are 4 additional parking spaces in the large driveway
Many outdoor mountain activities nearby, including hiking, fishing, skiing/snowboarding, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, rafting, and many, many more. There is a big grocery store less than 10 minutes drive.
Hideaway Park is 4-5 blocks away, and is the site of many summer festivals (jazz festival, beer festival), free Thursday night concerts in the summer, a sledding hill with many sleds that is great for the kids in the winter, a great playground, and a large skatepark. Cooper Square is just around the corner with many shops, restaurants, a coffee shot, ski rental, free Friday night concerns, and free horsedrawn carriage/sleigh rides for the kids.
This is a great property for groups of friends and for families with kids, as the layout provides a nice separation of 'upstairs/downstairs' and the back living area is perfect for kids or as a separate recreation room area for ping pong or playing cards.
Baby/toddler amenities available upon request including a pack-and-play, portable high chair, changing table, comfy glider chair for rocking, baby swing, baby jumper, and access to toys/books. Please ask owners about these so we can leave you access if needed. Just out the backyard is a little trail to a wooded hill with a tree house for exploring.
Hiking, bike trails, rivers, parks, trailheads and the Winter Park ski area all within 5-10 minutes drive. 35 minutes to Rocky Mountain National Park and Grand Lake. 90 minutes to Denver.
