About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 10)

Private Rendezvous home located in Winter Park/Fraser Valley, adjacent to beautiful forest and still easily accessible to town and Winter Park ski resort. Big enough for 2 families!

We welcome you to our scenic mountain home nestled next to National Forest, located above the town of Winter Park. Our 3bd/3.5bth 2800sq.ft private home offers you a spectacular location, all the finest amenities, and plenty of space for two families to enjoy a Colorado getaway. Absorb the panoramic views of the Winter Park Ski area and Byers Peak Wilderness while sipping a hot beverage from the wrap-around deck. Keep your eyes pealed for nearby wildlife. Moose, deer, foxes and humming birds love the meadow adjacent to property.

Our home is well equipped with brand new (Spring 2017) hot tub, an attached 2 car heated garage, fine furnishings, comfy beds with new mattresses, nice linens, a well-stocked kitchen, stainless steel appliances, an outdoor Weber gas grill, washer/dryer, flat-screen TV’s, board games, and plenty of space to spread out.

WINTER IS SNOW MUCH FUN! From our home you are a short five minute ride away from world class skiing / snowboarding at Winter Park/Mary Jane Ski Resort. We can provide discount vouchers redeemable at the mountain for $79 lift tickets. if you prefer something a little more low key, enjoy XC skiing and snowshoeing right out the front door of our house on the scenic Idlewild trail system. Other winter time activities include tubing, skating, snowmobiling, fatbiking, and scenic snowcat tours. At the end of the day, relax in the hot tubs, while the kids enjoy the water slides at Fraser Valley Recreation Center, located a short ½ mile down the hill across from Rendezvous.

SUMMER TIME IN WINTER PARK: Mountain biking, hiking, boating, rafting, and fishing are just a few of the activities you can enjoy in the warm weather season. Take a leisure hike to waterfall while checking out the beaver damns. During the day, go white water rafting, summer tubing, or zip lining then spend the evening at a free outdoor concert, roasting marshmallows in the back patio fire pit or head out to a rodeo. Winter Park is known as “Mountain Bike Capital USA” . With over 600 miles of marked and mapped mountain bike terrain, including the beginner to advanced trails accessible from the back door. Rent a mountain bike in town from one of many bike shops, or head to the ski area and ride the chairlift to the renowned Trestle Bike Park. Want to slow it down? Rent a boat on Lake Granby, visit Rocky Mountain National Park, take a scenic drive up Corona Pass, or soak in the pools at the Hot Sulphur Springs. There is a pond stocked with fish right in the neighborhood you can enjoy. Plan on taking the kids to the base of Winter Park to do alpine slide, human maze, bungee trampoline, miniature golf, climbing wall and mineral panning. Or take a scenic chairlift ride to top of mountain and have lunch at lodge. We personally have done it all and will be available to recommend and help plan activities.

About Cheryl Richardson

My wife and I have both lived in Colorado for over 25 years and have visited every ski town in the state. We have always had a special place in our heart for the Fraser Valley, and in 2001, we got married at the Mary Jane Lodge. We knew that one day we would own a mountain house so our kids could have the same experience. We now live in Denver, and with our 2 young boys, love to get up to Winter Park and enjoy our mountain home whenever possible. We hope you will enjoy your stay in our home as much as we do.

Cheryl Richardson purchased this house in 2013

Why Cheryl Richardson chose Fraser

Growing up in Colorado, we both frequented the Fraser Valley for the amazing mountain biking and skiing. After being married at the base of Winter Park ski area, we set our sights on one day owning a mountain home in the valley. When the time came, we chose Rendezvous. It is an exclusive mountain home development offering the very best amenities. The trail network is second to none, the views are spectacular, a short 5 minute drive to the ski area, and a private ski club at the base of the mountain. These are just a few of the reasons we chose Rendezvous. We are confidant you will love your stay at our mountain get away.

What makes this house unique

We instantly fell in love with the wrap around porch and panoramic views of the Winter Park ski area and Byers Peak. The house is located directly next to the Arapahoe Forest boundary. You can leave your car in the garage because the the trailhead to numerous hiking, biking, snowshoeing and XC skiing is located directly next to the property. Our first weekend in the house we saw moose, deer, fox, and a bear. A short drive down the hill you reach the Fraser Valley Rec Center, and the city of Winter Park. You can also walk/bike down the Meadow Trail from our house straight into town.

Very Nice!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our stay at this property. It was very clean and beautifully decorated and in a great location. The kids loved the hike out the back door to a fort-like teepee to play in and the deck and fire pit were great for just hanging out and relaxing day and night. It is a short distance to the town and great hiking trails too. We will be back!

We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home. There was plenty of room for all 7 of us. So much to do (we had a summer experience). The house was in perfect condition, and had all the amenities we needed. The owners were great to work with. Close to everything. I hope that we can stay here again in the future!
