Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Love this house, very clean and loved the privacy! It feels like it's in the middle of nowhere which was what we were looking for. Very comfortable overall, but the bunkbeds were the only thing that were not comfortable for adults. Other than that, it was great and we will definitely return!

Everything you could ask for

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place! Very easy to get to and just a short drive to Winter Park. We totally enjoyed our stay. This house was warm and cozy. The beds were super comfortable with plenty of blankets and pillows. The kitchen was stocked with everything you could need. Great towels for showering ( very important) even a big thick spa robe in the master bathroom! Our snowboarders made great use of the hot tub each night as well as the outdoor fire pit. I highly recommend this home! Thank you!

Lots of beds and room

  • 4 of 5

The only negative was that we were required to drive to another location to drop off the garbage. Since it snowed heavily the day before, we were concerned bout getting stuck on the snowpacked side roads. I took several bags with me and disposed of them at home. Considering the big expense of this house, not to mention a cleaning fee, I would think that the owners could figure out a way to dispose of the garbage themselves.

Beautiful cabin, perfect for a getaway with family

  • 5 of 5

The property was very comfortable and well-stocked, and we couldn’t have asked for more as far as the surrounding area. The internet is very slow, although with some coaxing we were eventually able to get Netflix going; I would recommend bringing along a few DVDs. I would definitely come back!

About Amy Hudson and Scott Deming

We are a family of five who live in Denver, Colorado. When the kids are not participating in soccer, baseball or other activities, we spend as much time as we can together in the outdoors.

Amy Hudson and Scott Deming purchased this house in 2014

Why Amy Hudson and Scott Deming chose Winter Park Highlands

We chose Grand County because of its proximity to Denver. Less than a 90-minute drive and no Eisenhower Tunnel. The house is on a peaceful, tree-filled-two acre lot, with lots of sunshine. It's a great place to relax. We’re centrally located and close to downhill skiing at Winter Park and Ski Granby Ranch, cross country skiing at Devil’s Thumb and Snow Mountain Ranch, mountain biking and hiking up and down the Fraser Valley, fishing and boating at Lake Granby and soaking at Hot Sulphur Springs.

What makes this house unique

We love the sun shine that streams in through living room windows, and enjoying the star-filled sky from the hot tub. The house has a downstairs that is perfect for kids to hang out and have their own space, while the adults can relax in the upstairs. It works great for two families.
