Property description

Visiting Winter Park Resort, Nordic trails at DTR or YMCA, Golfing at one of the 3 area courses, or visiting Rocky Mountain National Park? Or just want to get out of the city and away from it all? Then Fraser is the place for you! Contact the Owner directly and ask any questions on this owner-maintained home, so you feel like you're at home when you go on vacation!

Guests #1 comment after stay: "Your home is better in person than the pictures online. We love your home!" --No doubt you have picked the right location for your Colorado Adventure! There’s no place quite like Grand County Colorado!

Make the most of your vacation by staying in this tastefully furnished 3,300 SF Milled Log Home with big views and 3 levels for living and relaxing during your visit. The Talley Ho Ski Haus is nestled in the woods with endless views of the surrounding mountains and unmatched trail access directly from your home for biking and hiking.

The great room / dining room combo boasts vaulted ceilings with tongue & groove architecture throughout, and pine wood beams and floor to ceiling windows--that keep this home comfy/cozy year round. The Ski Haus comfortably sleeps 10-12. I would like to keep the max at 12. Small to medium dogs considered, so please include a description and picture of your family pet with your inquiry. Kenneling your furry friend while you are away is desired!

This was a second home for the past 5 years, and the first time the Ski Haus has ever been a rental property. The lovely family I bought it from built it and lived here year-round with their two young daughters. They put in the commercial grade kids slide from the 1st floor down to the basement! You won’t see that anywhere else I don't suspect. You will be delighted by the amenities, and I think you will want to come back again and again after your visit. At least that’s what all my friends and guests have said. There’s so much to do in Grand County that we hope you’ll check it all out--all 4 seasons.

A little about the Talley Ho Ski Haus: There’s a 3-car garage with plenty of storage for your skis and boards, mountain/road bikes, and you could even park a snowmobile or 4-wheeler since the national forest is just down the road --where outdoor enthusiasts like to venture out. The main level has a large foyer and a large closet to store your gear for the next day (ski racks in garage, please remove boots and shoes in garage). The kitchen, dining and great room are open to one large gathering space for entertaining and family dinners. The large dining table is also expandable, with a pullout extension on each end. There are 2 bedrooms and a large bathroom with double sinks, water closet, and tub/shower combo on the main level. This bathroom has the main linen closet where you will find everything you need during your stay. The master suite takes up the entire 2nd level. As you climb the stairs you will have an open loft with magnificent views before entering the bedroom through French doors. This bedroom, large bath, and walk-in closet may cause you and your guests to draw straws or flip a coin to see who parks their suitcase up there! The master bath has a granite counter top with double sinks, a large soaker tub, shower, and water closet. Heading down the stairs to the basement you will find a family room and laundry room to one side, and a bedroom, kid’s play room with a twin over full bunkbed, and a full bath. This bath has a large pedestal sink, water closet, and tub/shower combo. And there’s one more space I like to call the Adult’s “Getaway” Room. Get away from the kids to read a book, cozy up to the fireplace, or watch the big game! I think you will be happy in this bonus room above the garage, and more big views to boot! Hopefully the photos will be inviting enough to send me an inquiry about your next vacation, as I’m happy to answer any and all questions you may have about Grand County and Winter Park Resort.

Sleeps 12 comfortably:
Master, 2nd floor, King, 5-piece bath, walk-in closet
Bdrm 2, Main floor, Queen, shared 4-piece bath
Bdrm 3, Main floor, Queen, shared bath, kid's slide access
Bdrm 4, Finished Walkout Basement, Queen, shared 3-piece bath
Kids Playroom, Basement, Twin over Full Bunk Bed, shared bath
Family Room, Basement, New Lane Sofa Sleeper w/Full Gel Mattress

If you want to stay in a hotel room, go for it, but if you want to stay in a beautiful home, with your very own well-equipped kitchen to cook great meals for your family, with every convenience you could want, enjoy our priceless views, and have easy access to Winter Park Resort, Colorado Adventure Park, Devil's Thumb Ranch, Grand County's Recreation Center, and all that Grand County has to offer! ...I look forward to hearing from you and helping you secure a great home for your family vacation!

There are many great restaurants in Winter Park, Fraser, and Tabernash.

Here’s a short list of my favorites, but look through the menu guide I've left for you to get a complete list:
- Tabernash Tavern $$$- call for a reservation (970) 726-4430, my personal favorite
- Deno’s $$- great place, delicious, well priced food; family atmosphere
- The Library $- fresh brews, good food
- Azteca $-fresh Mexican food
- Devil’s Thumb Ranch (DTR) $$$ - used to stay there before we bought and I really enjoy Heck’s Tavern and the Ranch House; Heck’s Tavern is much more reasonably priced and has a great happy hour; check-out Nordic skiing or horseback riding while there! And the spa is very nice after a day of skiing! Also Bella Vita Spa in Winter Park
- The Foundry $$ - Great pizza and other treats, plus a Cinema and Bowling!
- Venture into Grand Lake!

You can also take the California Zephyr Amtrak train to Fraser, CO. Enjoy visits to Grand Lake and Rocky Mountain National Park to the north and Winter Park Resort to the south. The towns of Fraser and Winter Park have been growing together over the past few years with the Grand Park development. Take advantage of the Grand County Recreation Center during your visit for a great workout, yoga, or the huge pool and waterslide. Everything is along US-40, and this log home property sits back off the main road to bring you a vacation home with panoramic views, trail access, and a perfect biking and snowmobiling destination for those who want to do it all. You are only 5 miles from Devil's Thumb Ranch in Tabernash which offers nordic/cross-country skiing, a luxury spa, two restaurants, horseback riding, stables to visit the many animals, and endless hiking trails, gear shop, and one of the best happy hours in the area. The town of Winter Park has many fabulous restaurants and I've included some in my listing. Please call if you have any questions as there's just about everything here you could want in Denver's favorite ski town!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Hello! Thanks for viewing my property today. I retired from the Air Force in 2012, traveled the world, and I finished up my military service in Colorado Springs. I consider myself lucky to live in Colorado and look forward to sharing my home in the mountains with you. I just completed and received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Interior Design at the Art Institute of Colorado in Denver. I've always had a passion for design and architecture. Plenty of books in the house to make that point pretty clear! I will stay in Colorado and I maintain my home myself so that I can make sure it is in mint condition for every guest. I know you will love Winter Park and Fraser any time of the year because there is so much to do here, and it can be anyone's playground. Here's a short list of the things I love to do when I'm up in the mountains: ski, snowshoe, hiking, fishing, biking, sightseeing, RMNP, Grand Lake, Winter Park Resort activities, dining, whitewater rafting, boating, kayaking, tubing, working out at the Fraser Rec Center, swimming, rodeo, and taking in the free summer concerts! So much to do, and be sure and stop by the Visitor Center in Winter Park to see what's happening during your stay, there's always something!

Why the Owner Chose Fraser, CO, USA:
Winter Park is the best mountain town for skiing and hiking! And it's so easy to get to from Denver, DIA, or other Colorado towns...they call it the locals mountain. When you travel, do you prefer to feel like you're in a time share resort or a quaint little town? If you want that small town feeling with a big ski/board mountain, you'll absolutely love Winter Park and Fraser! If you mountain bike or enjoy hiking then the Spring thru Fall season is a must. This house is located near a great trail system. I'm discovering new trails every time I go for a bike ride. Puts a huge smile on my face, and I feel lucky to have this home in Fraser.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We selected this house for it's views, privacy, and excellent floor plan. I've put my own touches on it with the furnishings/decor and I've replaced the carpet and installed new granite countertops in the kitchen and master bath. I think you'll feel right at home! I have a guest book at the house and a 3-ring binder with house info, and room to add comments and 'nice-to-haves' for future visits so I can keep making my home a touch better with each guest!
