Just a short 9-mile drive from the town center of Winter Park and 15 miles from the ski area of Winter Park Resort, The Pole Creek area is one of the most unique and beautiful master-planned residential communities in the Colorado mountains. 'The Lazy Z' is just a short walk to the clubhouse of the 27-hole award-winning championship golf course of Pole Creek.

About Jim Zasowski

Questions: Contact Jim @ 303-204-1233 or

I (Jim) grew up in Clifton, NJ and Sheri was raised in Memphis, TN. We have 3 children, 2 boys married and our daughter currently attends college in Tennessee. We currently live in Greenwood Village, CO. We built this log home back in 2000/2001 and have created memories to last a lifetime over the years with our family and friends.

Jim Zasowski purchased this house in 2001

Why Jim Zasowski chose Fraser

We purposely built our log home in this location because of the peacefulness of the Pole Creek area and to get a true 'Rocky Mountain' feel and experience vs. the busy city life. With that said, the location is perfect as it is a short drive to the many recreational sites here in Grand County (ski, golf, hike, fishing, horseback riding, spas etc.).

What makes this house unique

You can literally walk to Pole Creek Golf Course and Snow Mountain Ranch from the property!

Wonderful stay with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Lazy Z for three nights for a work trip. It was absolutely perfect. Our preference is to be a bit out of town, which was achieved with this property--10 minutes from downtown Winter Park, so we were close enough to town to run into the grocery store, or go out to dinner, but far enough from the town to enjoy the stars at night and really enjoy the vastness of the valley and the mountains. Two of our three nights we cooked and stayed in-- the kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. It was about a 15-20 minute drive to Mary Jane, where we lucked out with a bluebird day and 6 fresh inches of powder. Loved the stay and hope to come back!

Owner's Response: Justin, thank you for your thoughtful review. Yes, the starts out there can be spectacular at night and one of my favorite things about being away from the downtown area. I am so glad you and your friends had a great time and really appreciated you staying at our home. We hope to see you come back again in the future and certainly hope to see you in person through Nick and Betsy soon. Have a great beginning to your New Year! Jim Z.

Awesome place to stay. The house has everything you need and more. Perfect fir a large group

  • 5 of 5

The house was a perfect size for the 14 of us for Christmas...we even had a tree and the snow fell to give us a white Christmas and great skiing. Great location and easy to find too. The kitchen is complete with everything we needed to feed our large group. Bedrooms were comfortable and large. Loved the hot tub, fire pit and having a grill to use.

Incredible girls' weekend to celebrate grandma!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Lazy Z to celebrate a 70th birthday - sisters, daughters, and granddaughters enjoyed the beautiful and well-appointed home, complete with luxurious hot tub, steam shower, and jetted bathtub. Having four distinct living spaces (sunroom, loft, living room, and downstairs den) meant plenty of room to spread out for games, reading, watching movies, and relaxing. The kitchen was incredibly well-stocked - it even had a crock pot (which I needed and had forgotten to pack!). And then the surroundings - oh my goodness! Gorgeous setting - trees, mountains, we even got snow - such a treat for our out-of-town guests! We definitely want to return. People in our group said it was the nicest weekend they've ever had, and it was all at The Lazy Z! Ski season hasn't even begun and we never ventured out except for a short walk outside at the home. So I know there is a lot more to explore next time - but at The Lazy Z, your stay will be relaxing, fun, and full even if you just stay inside! Thank you for such special memories for our family!

Owner's Response: Parker, thank you so much for your kind words. Just to hear how much your family enjoyed your stay really reinforces why we decided to offer up our home so that others can enjoy it like we have over the years! So happy you were able to get a little snow as well. It is indeed a very peaceful spot and it really does feel like you can "get away" from it all. I hope you all decide to come again in the future! Jim Z.

Property was ideal for a getaway and handled comfortably

  • 5 of 5

Property was a taste of luxury log cabin living in a outdoor semi remote setting. Loved the sun room with views of the fire pit and hot tub. Star filled nights, active wildlife with distant views of the golf course.
