About the property

This large(5000 square foot) private home is ideally equipped to accommodate single or multiple family getaways. Located on 3 acres of wooded privacy near Tabernash and the Pole Creek Golf Course, it is perfectly situated between the renowned Winter Park/Mary Jane resort and the family friendly Granby Ranch/Sol Vista resort. Other nearby winter/summer attractions include the Devil’s Thumb Ranch, Fraser Tubing Hill, YMCA of the Rockies, Pole Creek Golf Course, Rocky Mountain National Park, Grand Lake as well as other area lakes. Only an hour and a half from Denver you will be at the center of all that Grand County has to offer.

Offering three levels of comfortable living space, the floor plan is well-suited for large families or multi-family groups. Entrance is through the lower level and a heated two car garage. The lower level includes a mudroom where all winter clothing can be left for drying and/or guest storage, utility room with a washer and dryer and a bathroom with shower. Also located on the lower level is a recreation room that includes a foosball table, family board games and a large leather sofa and chair for lounging. The last component of the lower level is an apartment with a queen sized bed, wet bar, small table and chairs, and love seat. The apartment has a full private family bathroom and offers a secluded sleeping space away from the rest of the house for those who like to sleep in.

The main level of the home opens into the Great Room that includes a gas fireplace, a leather sofa and loveseat, a lounge chair, and a Dish Network satellite TV with DVD/VCR. The fully equipped kitchen contains all stainless steel appliances and all dishes and pots/pans for full family enjoyment. The large table can accommodate up to eight and the kitchen counter with leather topped stools has room for five others. The Great Room and the kitchen have proven to be the heart of the home offering a central location for all guests to gather, eat, play and connect.

The main level also contains three bedrooms. The Master Bedroom includes a king sized bed and dresser crafted by the Amish using hickory wood, decorative gas stove, large walk-in closet, private bathroom containing a jetted Jacuzzi tub, shower, and two vanity sinks. A Dish Network Satellite TV with DVD/VCR gives the parents their own choices and total privacy when desired.

Guest Bedroom 1 includes a Queen Sized Bed, large closet, chair, and suitcase rack. Guest Bedroom 2 includes two extended length twin beds, large closet, chair, and suitcase rack. The two bedrooms share a full sized family bathroom.

The third floor offers a safe, secluded space for children of all ages to have a space of their own, including the loft with a sofa, large lounge chair and the third Dish Network Satellite TV with DVD/VCR. The kids' bunk house is a large room accessible from the top of the stairs and includes four (4) twin sized beds with hand crafted head boards and a hand crafted wood game table with benches. A unique feature of the bunk house is the two storage areas with doors that function as two hide-away places for the kids. The owners' grandkids love having this space to play games, watch movies and nestle down at night!

The lower level, the main floor, and the upper level are all carpeted. The main floor has in-floor radiant heat. There are seven separate heating zones throughout the log home. The gas fireplace and decorative stove provide additional heat along with mountain top ambiance.

For close-to-home outdoor amusement, a variety of snowshoes and sleds are available on site. The wooded lot offers a safe outdoor space for kids to play year-round with great visibility from the house. Some favorite family outdoor pastimes include capture-the-flag, exploring the woods, hiking to the rocks, spotting wildlife and enjoying a dip in the hot tub under the starry sky.

Our customized log home offers a total turnkey experience for families to enjoy the vast and diverse activities of the Winter Park/Fraser Valley area. All you need to optimize your pleasurable mountain retreat is your clothing and food – we will be providing all of the resources required to support your rocky mountain high.

Large family ski vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 13 recently spent 6 days at this beautiful log cabin and had a great experience. The views from the front deck are unforgettable. Although there was snow covering the ground, we had some very mild temperatures that allowed us to spend a good deal of time outside the cabin. In addition to the views from the front deck, the kids and adults enjoyed the hut tub - especially after a full day of skiing. The apartment on the lower level worked out really well for a young family with kids. The main level was spacious enough to accommodate all 13 with no problem and was arranged very nicely! The master suite was incredibly spacious with fantastic views of the Rockies! This home is definitely one of the nicer VRBO's my family has stayed in. Winter Park is a great little area and if we come back Janine's cabin is the first place we'll look to stay!

Family Ski Trip

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from spending 4 days with our kids and grandkids in this beautiful Winter Park Highlands log home. We have stayed at many VRBO properties but this one ranks near the top. The layout of the home is perfect for a large group. My daughter and husband and their 3 little boys really enjoyed the "apartment" in the lower level. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and there were both adult and child size snowshoes for our use. Some of the younger ones in the group braved the cold and enjoyed the hot tub as well. The only negative was that we were only able to stay 4 nights but we are hoping to return and enjoy this beautiful property in the summer!

Fantastic Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This home is set up for fun and easy living. Checkin was smooth and easy and checkout was simple.

We had a ten month old baby and this home had it all; crib, high chair, stairway gate, plastic baby dishes, sippy cups and everything immaculately clean and maintained.

I have rented from Homeaway many times and have never had an experience as perfect as this rental.

Janine's immaculate home and responsive customer service were matched ny this magnificent location.

Like our home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our family reunion, with 13 of us from as far away as Wisconsin and Tennessee. Cannot think of a single negative about our stay, it was that good, perfect is a more fitting descriptor. We had met Janine earlier in the spring, what a neat gal. Janine's log home is ideal in every sense, show room clean throughout, warm, quiet, spacious. Evenings were spent outside around a toasty fire...Tabernash summer evenings are delightfully cool. Thanks again, Janine, and a heartfelt Semper Fi from one former Marine to all your fellow former Marine family members. If ever we do a repeat gathering, your Tabernash home will be the only one at the top of our list.

A Hidden Jewel

  • 5 of 5

This house rates as one of the top houses we've ever rented. With a log construction that's off the charts, along with decorating that spared no expense, we only wish we had the time available to stay longer than we did. Though the road leading up the house is long and curvy, it's well worth the effort once you arrive. My wife and I enjoyed coffee on the deck every morning with a pristine view of Byers peak to the south. In the rear of the house is a terrific hot tube with nothing but stars above. A little further into the back area is a fire pit with chairs that we visited every night.

I produce a national architectural magazine recognizing homes all over the country with unique and beautiful architecture. This home could be included in our publication. It's that nice.

Janine (the owner) is terrific to work with. Very accommodating and genuine. We will return in the future to enjoy this log home again.
