Also located on the lower level is a recreation room that includes family board games and a large leather sofa and chair for lounging. The last component of the lower level is an apartment with a king 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 Direct 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.

It is a great billiards room! Directly off the billiards room is a safe, secluded bunkroom with 5 twin beds and a wall mounted flat screen for watching their children's DVD's. The kids twin sized beds are hand crafted head boards and a hand crafted wood game table with benches. A unique feature of the bunkroom 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.

Fantastic Home!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for our annual family vacation (4 adults, 6 kids). This home had everything we needed (plenty of beds, children's room w/toys, large diningroom table that seated everyone, fire pit for making s'mores, and a big hit: the hot tub). Kitchen was fully stocked with pans, utensils, etc.

We are looking forward to another trip to the mountains next year and will certainly consider this home again!

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.
