About Dorelle Ackermann

We are retired school teachers from Illinois and have enjoyed skiing in Summit County since the late 1970's. We never tire of biking the beautiful paved biking paths in the summer although the mountain bike trails have humbled us. We especially enjoy the Frisco community where people love the outdoors and remain friendly to tourists.

Dorelle Ackermann purchased this house in 1990

Why Dorelle Ackermann chose Frisco

Summit county is an ideal, year round vacation area. Locals say that tourists come for the skiing and stay for the summers which is exactly what I did. Ski resorts make ideal vacation locations for summers because they have an abundance of lodging so summer rental rates are more reasonable than areas that depend on summer rentals exclusively.

If you want to stay active in the 'dog days of summer' the low humidity and temperatures in the 70's are perfect. In addition, ski resorts want summer business so they have music concerts, golfing, mountain biking, hiking to attract visitors.

What makes this house unique

Frisco is centrally located and therefore preferable to staying at a ski resort. This allows you to ski various mountains during your stay and is considerably less expensive. Check the rates at Copper Mountain and you'll see what I mean. In addition, Frisco has the charm of a friendly small town. When I lost my wallet on the paved bike path to Copper Mt., someone found it and placed an ad in the local paper to find me. Numerous local businesses saw it and told me.

Guestbook comments from the owner


I hope you enjoyed your stay in my home and Summit County. I'd love to hear your comments both positive and negative so that I can maintain my home as comfortable for you as possible. Also, I'd love to hear what are your favorite restaurants, trails and activities.

Perfect house

  • 5 of 5

This house is positioned perfectly in the mountains and right near the bicycle path. It’s right off of Main Street and the hot tub and pool is amazing! This is definitely the best place to stay within 100 miles! Thanks for letting us use your home.

Rented from this owner since 1999. She never fails to provide quality lodgings. Frisco is the best town in Summit County. Not wall to wall tourists like Breckenridge or Keystone. This house is in one of the most quiet areas of town.

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We've been staying in this home for two months each summer for the past 10 years. We keep coming back. That should be enough said!

But we'll say more. The home is spacious, comfortable, and always clean. There have been recent updates including two "new" bathrooms. Each year we are surprised with new furniture the owner has purchased. The location is ideal with spectacular mountain views from the front deck and a short walk to downtown.

On the rare ocassions when we've needed assistance, the owner has responded immediately.

Spacious, newly upgraded bathrooms, well equipped kitchen (many size casserole dishes, pots, pans, etc.). Owner is prompt with communication and makes the process of renting very easy. Community is great for walking your dog, which is the other plus of this property, being able to travel with our fur-kids is a benefit. Will be booking for our next winter getaway.

Clean, comfortable, close to downtown Frisco and several ski areas.

  • 5 of 5

The Patio House is large, comfortable and clean. There have been some upgrades since we last stayed there--new living room couches and renovated bathrooms. The owner is very responsive and pleasant to work with. The location is perfect--close to downtown Frisco and ski areas. We have stayed in this house several times and will again.

The house is very nice and has excellent accommodations, for both humans and dogs.

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent experience with our stay. The house fit our needs perfectly. Our overall experience with the booking and dealings with the owner were great. It was especially easy having dogs that needed to stay with us. We were able to have our dogs stay with us and the dogs loved the fenced in area and the proximity to all of the walking trails. We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this place to all of our friends.
