Overview

About the property

Base Camp on Jane Creek is a group of 18 luxury townhomes built for fun!

This unit offers numerous amenities that make a Winter Park vacation one that you and your family or friends will remember for the rest of your life. Do you need room for a lot of people? We have actual bed space for 13 with space for 2 more on a fold out sofa, total of 15. We feel that a real bed is much more comfortable than an air mattress or pull out mattress/sofa. Do you want easy access to the slopes? You can either walk a few yards to the ski corridor and ski to the base (ski in/ski out) or you can walk a few yards down the cul de sac and the green line bus, that runs continuously, will pick you up and take you to the Zephyr lift. This bus will be at the loading point approximately every 20 minutes, there is NO other line in the bus system that picks up that frequently or drops you so close to the lifts. You can also use the bus system to travel into Winter Park, Fraser and other destinations (this requires switching buses). Ski rental (Breeze) is available about a block away at the Iron Horse property. Enjoy golf? Pole Creek and

Grand Elk Golf Clubs are within a 20 minute drive. Do you want to relax in a spa at the end of the day? We had a new one installed in November of 2014. Want the option of personal space? Separate living areas allow for conversations in multiple places. Do you have children? So do we! We have stocked items like a high chair, a pack-n-play, swim diapers and other items. We have an X-box One in the basement with a couple of E-rated games along with several G rated movies. Our children use their sleds and play/explore in the cul de sac in front of the unit and along the path in the woods behind the townhome. We have rented several units in Winter Park over the years for our family vacations. This unit, by far, is the most spacious and most comfortable we've ever stayed at. You will not forget the positive memories you create while vacationing at 464 Base Camp.

About Lanny Greenhalgh

We are the Greenhalgh family and live in south-central Nebraska raising crops, cattle, and as you can see, KIDS!!! We homeschool and use that opportunity to teach the children about the importance of enterprise, to the glory of God. By the age of 7 each child is required to have their own business. Robert milks, Ashley does eggs, Hannah bakes and David raises hogs. They all also have their daily chores to do around the house. As we prepared the Winter Park property for rental each child was assigned various duties. There was a lot of cleaning to do, there were several shelving units and other items to assemble and my 12-year old daughter installed the new thermostats! We have a motto in our household that states, 'Work first, play later.' This Winter Park property is the culmination of God blessing a lot of work so that we can now have some play time. We expect the children to learn numerous lessons about the upkeep of a property and about the blessings of being able to enjoy it.

Why Lanny Greenhalgh chose Winter Park

We have traveled to many places over the years on family vacations and found none we prefer over Winter Park, CO. Skiing and snowboarding top the list but there are so many other things to do and enjoy. In the winter there are snowmobiling rentals nearby and many other activities. The children love the Coca-Cola tubing, we also tube at the YMCA and there is a tube hill in Fraser. During the summer nothing beats downhill mountain biking (after being carried to the top of the mountain on a lift). It is a huge thrill. Plenty of other hiking and biking activities in the summer as well. There is an alpine slide, mini golf, bounce houses, zip line and other activities at the base of the mountain in the summer time. The YMCA I mentioned, called Snow Mountain Ranch, is near Winter Park and is loaded with family fun opportunities. Some golf courses with the most amazing views are located a few minutes of our property. Our children also thoroughly enjoy white water rafting. Winter Park is a year-round vacation playground.

What makes this townhome unique

The Base Camp on Jane Creek 464 property is unique in that it's not just a place to stay, it's a place to enjoy living. We've built some very good memories staying in the smallest places possible on our trips, but we didn't want to purchase a unit like that. We looked at several properties in WP that would have been large enough to hold us. However, staying at a place and being on top of each other all of the time is not the most enjoyable way to spend a vacation. When we were looking for a place it was also crucial to us that the children be able to easily access the base ski lifts. We originally thought that the Zephyr Mountain Lodge units were the only properties that fit this bill. We were wrong! Since the green line bus route stops only a few steps from our door and drops you off at the base it is arguable that we are now closer to the lifts than if we had a ZML unit. The green line is the only colored shuttle line that drops you off right by the Zephyr and Arrow lifts, with all of the other routes you must walk through the entire village to get to the lifts. We are VERY thankful that base access is so easily available. Our 8 year-old can safely and easily navigate himself to the base for skiing, snowboarding and other activities. If the bus system isn't enough, we also have ski in/ski out access via the ski corridor behind the unit. Easy lift access is very important to us and we think you will find it to be very enjoyable as well. If you need to stop mid-day with a little one you won't be gone from the slopes for long to take them home.

Perfect location and provisions for winter or summer!

  • 5 of 5

I have been blessed to stay at this beautiful property both this summer and last winter. In the winter, you couldn’t find a better location. It is the perfect balance of convenient ski in and ski out as well as providing a peaceful, friendly, secluded atmosphere toward the top of an enclosed circle drive. Rental gear is available just down the hill. Even the most mildly experienced skier could walk the short trail and steps to the ski corridor. The shuttle bus picked us up at the bottom of the circle drive and dropped us at the base for ice skating, shopping, dining, ice cream, a massage, watching others ski in, the bunny slopes, etc. The resort is the most family friendly one of which I’m aware, offering a great variety of activities, lessons and skiing for all ages and abilities.

In the summer, the location provides peaceful relaxation and a great jumping off point to so many activities. My children LOVE exploring the area behind the unit, with all the trees, creeks and wildflowers. There are decks on both sides of the unit, so we can sit out on the deck and enjoy the peaceful environment and watch the kids explore. With a short walk down to the base, you can rent gear and lift tickets to go downhill mountain biking or get an adventure day pass for the alpine slide, bungee/trampoline, rock climbing, mini-golf, a maze, bouncy house, etc.. During the summer, a different free activity is hosted by the resort almost every day at the Village that includes a yoga class, campfire sing-a-long, kids night out, and popcorn & movie night. There’s a challenging and beautiful hike up the mountain from the base, or you can ride up the lift to the Sunspot restaurant at the top.

A short drive from the unit, you can find the towns of Winter Park and Fraser, shopping, night life, bowling, movies, a grocery store, a summer rodeo, a winter tubing hill, and many trails.

The property is the most comfortable, and well stocked one at which we’ve ever stayed. The master suite is gorgeous! There is a SECOND master suite, so nice for the grandparents or another couple. It has a fully stocked gourmet kitchen with everything you could think of. The beds are high quality, as is all the furniture. They’ve supplied the unit with everything you could need for little ones, too. The older kids/teens LOVED the basement with toys, games, Xbox One, and movies. And, everyone loved the hot tub.

Also, the owner is super friendly and helpful. I will definitely stay here again!

A Mountain Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

The Love Family wish to express their utmost appreciation for use of your amazing property for the 2017 Winter Park Jazz Festival in Winter Park, Colorado.

A couple of us have attended festivals in the past, however our experience this time was vastly different. We were joined by several family members for their first time and their experience was extremely favorable, especially for our girl celebrating an hallmark birthday!

Your property made all the difference as the space and location are prime! Your decorations and amenities made us feel right at home! Cooking, dining, bathing, sleeping, tv watching, and hot tubbing made it all so worthwhile! These accommodations were more than adequate!

We aimed to leave your property as loved as you left it for us! We trust you had no regrets!

Your generosity in accommodating our late checkout due to our family members’ medical emergency is greatly appreciated!

We highly recommend you and your property to anyone worthy and desirous of pleasurable escape!

We are already planning for 2018 Jazz Fest and your oasis! (wink wink) Smiles abound!

God Bless You and Yours!

Love Family

Owner's Response: Thank you so VERY much for these kind words! My primary work is in an industry where customer satisfaction, or even interaction, is not part of the equation. It is extremely pleasing to hear when someone enjoys their vacation, with our property being a part of it. We strive for customer satisfaction and look forward to hosting you next year. God's grace to you!

AMAZING- Beyond Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This home was spectacular and I'm sorry I didn't get to stay longer. Everything is top of the line from the kitchen to the laundry. The decor and comfort were above what we anticipated and with a house full of oxygen-deprived Californian's were were grateful to be in such a beautiful setting. The babbling brook in the "backyard" was incredible, fireplace in the master bedroom, plenty of comfortable beds. We'd come again in a heart beat.

BEST FEATURE OF ALL- The family really was so supportive and helpful. They ensured we were fully informed and took care of us. The organizing was all on me for our trip, and I was grateful to have such an amazing partner. Very helpful and available. Truly a beautiful trip and the home really added to the magic.

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our third visit at this amazing home and it was, once again, spectacular! I can not say enough about this house. It is in a perfect location with easy access to town and slopes. Fully stocked with all the comforts of home, large and spacious from top to bottom, this house has it all. It is wonderful for large families with lots of sleeping space and a very spacious, open kitchen for everyone to gather. It is a magical place!
