Historic Large Cabin- In- The- Woods Feel, Close To Town And Skiing & Hiking

Bedrooms 5
Space 4,200 sq. ft.
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 - 5 nights


About the property

One of a kind 5 bedrooms, 4 baths, 2 kitchens, many amenities, mountain view

Located in Fraser, about 5 miles from Winter Park Resort, this is the perfect large or multi-family getaway in 3 connected historic cabins with a large 2 car heated garage & 2 master suites with steam shower to relax after a long day on the mountain. If you prefer a soak in the hot tub, we have that too! Summer evenings are especially enjoyed with family and friends around the fire pit (propane), roasting marshmallows, enjoying the amazing stars!

Because there are 3 cabins that connect, the layout flows well for all age groups to have some 'elbow room'. Two of the cabins came out of Rocky Mtn. Natl. Forest and were part of the historic Never Summer Dude Ranch that operated in the 1920's! They were moved to their present location in the 1970's, when the Ranch was turned into a historic landmark. We have restored and updated them with modern amenities, while keeping the integrity of the 80+ year old you get the best of both worlds here, nestled in a private and scenic location, close to everything! If you are looking for a family oriented, true piece of Colorado history, THIS IS THE VACATION HOME FOR YOU!!!

About Mauri Powell

This is wonderful property is owned by 2 generations of a Denver family and is used annually for family reunions, holidays, small weddings and family golf tournaments. It is such a unique place to stay! We have loved it for many years and hope you will too!

Why Mauri Powell chose Winter Park

Winter Park and the surrounding valley offers so many outdoor activities, year round, without the 'hustle and bustle' of other Colorado ski areas. Plus, it is less than 2 hrs. from Denver international Airport, and Amtrak goes straight to it from Denver!

What makes this cabin unique

'UNIQUE' really describes it! You get the historic cabin-in-the-woods feel, with all of the modern comforts!

.... This cabin was also featured in Denver's magazine 5280 as THE place to stay in Grand County!

Great Place! As promised and reviewed!

  • 5 of 5

The Cabin was awesome. It is not fancy, but super cool and quaint! We had 3 families and 10 kids staying in the cabin. There was plenty of room for sleeping and eating! The heated garage was awesome to dry out ski stuff and keep boots warm for the morning! The hot tub was amazing! Great communication for property owner. I would recommend this property to anyone and everyone!

Cozy, authentic, breath of fresh air!

  • 5 of 5

Mauri was so accessible and accommodating, and the cabin was exactly what the doctor ordered! A perfect getaway retreat that we shared with another family. Plenty of room, and privacy, for everyone. Secluded and in beautiful nature surrounding, yet still a hop and skip into town and ski area. Can't wait to visit again soon!

Perfect for 14 People!

My friends and I had a great time at Mauri's Never Summer Cabin. Although cozy, there was plenty of space. The location is great for skiers and mountain bikers. Can't be beat if looking for a large home for a group's or a family's adventure!

Heed the warnings... the neighbors may be a bit sensitive to noise. We arrived late and the action of us unloading vehicles and getting in to the house was too loud.

Fun/Unique Cabin

  • 4 of 5

The Never Summer Cabin was perfect for our extended family vacation! There was plenty of room for all 9 adults and 5 young kids to enjoy our stay. The property sits in a great location, close to several attractions, and had plenty of room for adults and kids to hang out and play outside comfortably. The cabin was well equipped with linens, kitchen supplies, books, and TONS of games for the kids. Check-in and out was super easy and Mauri was wonderful to deal with. If I had one negative thing to say, it would be that maybe the cabin could be cleaner. However, we all agree that we would book here again!!

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time to this property, which our family affectionately calls the "smushed cabins." We love it here and hope to make it an annual tradition. It has plenty of room for everyone and the shabby sheek-ness of the place is fabulous! Mauri is a great communicator and makes sure that we have everything we need.
