Just wanted to say that - We have a 3 night minimum for high seasons, but if your looking for weekdays (sun-thurs) only, or filling in gaps between other renters, we're more than open to shorter stays. Also we use the place quite a bit ourselves, so we aren't able to do long term rentals.
Read on to hear all about the place and feel free to drop me a line with any questions (I'll get back as soon as I can).
This beautiful home has the best views in the valley. Situated on the top of the hill just behind the Safeway in Fraser, provides unobstructed views to the entire valley, byers peak, and the town below. There are no houses above us, and the houses below are far enough below that they don't obstruct the view in any direction. The great room has huge vaulted ceilings, sliding glass doors to access the deck, and 30 foot tall windows to take in the view. The great room has an open floor plan linking to the kitchen and a large fireplace to warm it in while watching a movie, socializing, or just enjoying the views. We usually have firewood in the garage which you are welcome to use. The great room opens to the elevated deck, that also overlooks the valley, and a grill. The house has a large three bedroom / three full bathroom floor plan spread out over three floors. We share the place with 2 other couples and there is plenty of room for all of us. The bathrooms were just remodeled in Dec 2013 (new tile floors, retiled showers, new vanities, ...).
The hot tub is in an enclosed wooden (sauna like) room with a large window (that opens so you can cool off) allowing again unobstructed views of the entire valley and town below. The tub is a huge wooden soaking type tub (with jets). It is 8 foot across and 5 foot deep. It comfortably holds 8 people without the massive entanglement of feet and legs normally associated with large numbers in a tub. Speakers in the hot tub room can be turned on/off from the stereo upstairs. The room and tub really are a highlight of the place (towels are provided).
The kitchen is fully stocked with all cooking utensils, pots and pans, baking dishes, spices, flour, oil, vinegar, blender, coffee maker, ... Just ask if your wondering about something that isn't listed, we love to cook so there's a good chance we have it up there.
There are 3 bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. The master has a huge elevated king bed with a rustic log frame, and a newly remodeled bathroom (shower and tub). The downstairs bedrooms each have full bathrooms with tubs and showers, one with a king bed and one with a queen. Heat can be individually controlled in each room. The place sleeps 6 on beds and an extra full mattress (thin twin) is in the closet. The couch is a huge L shaped, but is not a hide-a-bed.
There is a large HD TV in the great room with basic cable, a dvd player, and a stereo. The stereo has hookups for a mp3 player and speakers in both the great room and hot tub room. There is also a TV with dvd player in the master bedroom armoire. We have Comcast wireless Ethernet (and you can also hooked up wired connections directly to the modem - although you'll need your own Ethernet cable)
We're on the bus route, the stop is right across the street at the corner of ermine dr and wapiti. The bus comes every 30 minutes and will take you directly to ski hill, town, ...
There is also a single car garage (long enough to even fit my suburban with an inch or two to spare), and a heated mud room for drying off your clothes and boots.
We really feel Fraser is the ideal location in Winter Park - its right near Safeway, has far better views of the valley than anywhere in Winter Park, and only a 1-2 mile drive to the center of Winter Park. In the summer you can mountain bike right from the house (the trails in Fraser are phenomenal and connect to the winter park and resort trail system). The paved bike/walking path also curves all the way from Fraser through winter park and along the Fraser river up past the resort.
Our cleaners charge a set rate (150), but we take a deposit for slightly more just in case they have to spend extra hours (due to an unusually dirty house or pet hair), and will refund any extra (along with the damage deposit) after cleaning. If you there only 2 of you and you do not intend to use downstairs and you let us know at booking, we may be able schedule a shortened cleaning time and refund the savings.
Thanks for looking at our place, we hope it works out for you.
