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)

Great mountain home!!

  • 5 of 5

I've been visiting Winter Park regularly for nearly 30 years and all I can say is "Why didn't I find this place sooner?!" Great house. Great layout. We had two families of 5 in for a week over New Years and the layout suited us perfectly. The kids could all play downstairs while the adults "adulted" in the kitchen and living area on the main floor. Having the large lot was great for the kids to play in the snow each night after skiing while the adults prepared dinner. Overall a fantastic experience which we hope to repeat in the near future.

Beautiful home. We had a great time. Plenty of room for our group of nine.

  • 5 of 5

Clean, well kept, well stocked and plenty of room for our large group. Nice 4 person hot tub on the deck, grill for making steaks, large kitchen for making meals Nice pool table and living spaces for all to enjoy. We skied WP/Mary Jane during our week stay and had a great time. It's an easy 15 minute drive to WP. If we have a large group come to this area again we would definitely rent from the Beatons again. Easy communication and transaction.

We rented this house for our Thanksgiving weekend for me and my family. There were 13 of us, including 6 kids and everyone had a blast! The kids/rec room downstairs was a huge plus and kept them entertained while the ping pong/pool table was great for the adults too. The owners were also very easy to deal with and made the whole process hassle free. I would highly recommend staying here!
