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

Hi,

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.

Thanks,

Dorelle Ackermann

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.

Wonderful Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

This stay was awesome. The place was as advertised, with plenty of room. The kitchen had every utensil you would need. And it is close to all the outdoor activities you would want. If you want an awesome place to relax after sampling the many activities in and around Frisco, this is the place for you.

The owner responded quickly to each and every one of our inquiries. We certainly had to get some things to make our stay awesome, but since we had to buy food anyway, it was not a problem at all. And we really appreciated that the house had a vacuum cleaner, dishwasher, and laundry facilities.

Come to this house (as you would almost any owner-let place) and treat it like your own. The owners have most definitely put a lot of love and care into the house and it is a very suitable home away from home.

This is definitely what I have come to expect in excellent lodging found on VRBO.

The owner was very responsive and considerate to our last-minute request. We stayed for a long weekend and it was perfect. Plenty of room and beds for everyone, in a great neighborhood, and close to town and the resorts. We definitely would consider staying here again.
