3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9

We are excited to welcome you to Ed’s Mountain House! My husband Ed and I bought this modern, single family home in 2013 as a mountain get-away for us to enjoy with our young son and dog on weekends away from the Denver area, as well as a vacation home to enjoy with visiting family and friends to enjoy. Sadly, we lost Ed to a fierce battle with cancer in early 2015…and although we will continue to enjoy the house, we want to honor Ed’s passion for the Colorado Mountains by sharing this special place with others to enjoy, too.

This house sleeps 7-9 people, with 3 bedrooms & 2.5 bathrooms: a master bedroom with queen bed and attached master bathroom on the main level, and another full bathroom and two additional bedrooms on the 2nd level - one with a queen bed and the other with a twin/double bunk bed (sleeps 3). There is an additional half-bath off the kitchen on the main level, as well as a queen size sleeper sofa in the living room.

Key amenities include a spacious, fully equipped kitchen (including dishwasher & microwave oven), gas fireplace, wifi internet access, 55" flat screen smart TV, full size washer & dryer, hair dryers in both full bathrooms, a one-car garage (with ski & bike storage space), driveway & street snow plow service, outdoor gas grill and fenced backyard (great for dogs in this pet-friendly home!).

Ed's Mountain House is located in the Aspens at Eagles Nest neighborhood in Silverthorne, across the street from Ravens Golf Course; less than 1 mile from Willowbrook Trailhead; trout fishing pond and park a 5 minute walk; only 1.5-2 miles to Silverthorne & Dillon restaurants and shopping; and of course close access to world class alpine skiing, snow shoeing, Nordic skiing, ice skating & other snow activities in the winter, and hiking, biking, fishing, boating & summertime fun parks in the spring through fall.

The house is centrally located to several Summit & Vail County ski resorts:

Keystone - 10 miles

Arapahoe Basin - 15 miles

Breckenridge - 17 miles

Copper Mountain - 14 miles

Vail/Beaver Creek – 35 miles

About Kristen Payne

My husband Ed and I bought this modern, single family home in 2013 as a mountain get-away for us to enjoy with our young son and dog on weekends away from the Denver area, as well as a vacation home to enjoy with visiting family and friends to enjoy.

Kristen Payne purchased this House in 2013

Why Kristen Payne chose Silverthorne

Location, location, location! Ed and I married in 2008 at a ranch on a bluff not much farther north on Highway 9 from this property. We chose that location for our summer wedding for the same reason we chose this house for our weekend get-aways -- it's easy to get to from our primary home in Golden, as well as for friends and guests to reach from the Denver area/DIA. Ed's passion for skiing is carried on by me and our makes this location even more perfect -- such easy access to so many of our favorite ski resorts!

What makes this House unique

Besides the location, we love this house for some many other reasons -- we love the single family home set up, the heated attached garage, full size washer and dryer (to warm up wet ski clothes from the day before!), spacious and modern kitchen, fenced backyard for our golden retriever, 3 decent sized bedrooms and a very comfy queen sized sleeper sofa for the extra people you want to include!

                                                              We had a great ski getaway at Ed’s Mountain House! It is clean, comfortable, and has all the amenities of home. The fenced yard is perfect for young kids and pets. We will definitely be back for another stay!

                                                              Wonderful pup friendly mountain home in great location!

                                                              We had a wonderful stay at Ed's Mountain House! Rented for a long 4 day weekend of skiing with 6 other friends and one puppy. Kristen was super fast at responding both for our booking and for a question we had during our stay. Great instruction book for all the info we could ever need about the house itself as well as the surrounding area. My husband was the first in the front door so he could open the garage door, and his first words were "Wow, this place is beautiful!" when he came back out to the garage. As our other friends showed up, they said the same. We skied at Abasin, Keystone, Vail, and Breck, and the house is a wonderful location to easily get to everything, as well as all the shops and restaurants in Silverthorne (side note: if you need to rent skis, Blue Valley Ski rental in Silverthorne is both very close and very inexpensive - we've been renting from them for 4 years and you can't beat the service and price). The mountain views are incredible from all sides and having a garage with storage for skis was great. We actually ate all dinners at the house after skiing, and it was so wonderful to have the big kitchen and dining room table to prepare and share meals. We LOVED the gas fireplace and it was so simple to turn on and enjoy while watching the Olympics every night or playing card games in the family room. We did have one friend sleep on the living room pull out couch, and it is not a typical spring frame set up, so he said it was super comfortable. The back yard is fenced in and would be great for a dog to enjoy (our little puppy got walked vs. being let loose in the back yard as there was so much snow). You can tell this is a home vs. just a rental house as the decorations and personal touches made us feel so cozy and at home. We absolutely loved our stay and cannot recommend this location enough if you are skiing with a group in the winter, or coming out to enjoy the mountains in the summer. We would love to stay here again on our next trip out to Colorado. Thank you so much Kristen and family!!
