About Tami Beaton

My husband Tom and I are blessed with two wonderful children, Brynn (14) and Cade (7). We are originally from the Chicago area; lived in Dallas for about 7 years; and have been living near Boulder, CO for about 9 years. Tom is a patent attorney for a medical device company and I am a former teacher who volunteers at my kids' schools. It was one of our dreams to own a mountain home, and it finally happened in October of 2014. We couldn't be happier with our home, especially since we spent the first few months significantly updating it. It is our pleasure to share our mountain getaway with you.

Tami Beaton purchased this house in 2014

Why Tami Beaton chose Winter Park Highlands

Instead of a ski-in, ski-out condo, Tom and I were looking for a home on some acreage with trees, and we found the perfect place in Winter Park Highlands in Tabernash. This area is centrally located with just about every home having anywhere from 1-2 acres which makes the area very quiet to getaway and relax.

What makes this house unique

There is so much to do around Grand County, both summer and winter. Festivals, mountain biking, fishing, hiking to skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, & snowmobiling. You name it and it probably exists in this mountain area...there is even a beach at Grand Lake! (albeit a small one)

Clean, well stocked, and organized!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful reunion week here. There was lots of sleeping space, the patio was a fantastic hit, and our children loved playing in the fort. We spent tons of time visiting Rocky Mountain National Park and everything we needed was all within a reasonably short drive. Instructions were very clearly communicated and we had no issues at all! Would recommend highly.

Fantastic place for a family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here. Ping pong and pool table were enjoyed by everyone. Plenty of space for 11 of us. Stocked with everything you need and then some. Even had extra toothbrushes for the child that forgot theirs. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Visited from Wisconsin with my three sisters and families ages 2-50. Great place in the woods (deer walked right past deck) with lots of space and things for everyone to do like hot tub, ping pong, kids' toys, etc. Owner was REALLY good about getting back to us immediately with any questions we had. Instructions and suggestions were very thorough. A good time was had by all at house and visiting parks, lakes, and trails in the area.

Wonderful mountain home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this spacious and comfortable home! A beautiful quiet setting and very clean with everything we needed to cook, entertain our young teenagers - pool, ping pong and air hockey! The living area is larger than it appears in photos - plenty of room for a large group to hang out. Communication with host was great with detailed instructions. We would definitely stay again - thank you!

We arrived from South Carolina on Christmas afternoon to spend a week playing in the Snow with Family from Arizona and New Mexico. There were 11 of us including a toddler and grandparents. The home had just the right amount of space and was extremely well equipped. It really felt like we were staying in a friends home. The pool table, ping pong, chess, DVD player, sleds, and hot tub gave us plenty to do when we were at the home. We spent time skiing at Granby Ranch and Winter Park, snowmobiling in Rocky Mountain National Park, ice skating and tubing at the YMCA of the Rockies, and this home was very centrally located to all of it. We couldn't have asked for a better location. Only minutes either direction to stores and restaurants too!

We plan on coming back again in the future and would definitely rent this home from these owners again.
