Quiet and peaceful, you will escape from the hustle and bustle of your stressful life. Built with love and now yours to enjoy!!
Welcome to Grand County, the perfect four-season retreat - where you can enjoy day trips through Rocky Mountain National Park; golfing at Pole Creek Golf Club; horseback riding and cross-country skiing at Devil's Thumb Resort; and all the summer activities at the Winter Park Resort including its alpine slide, mini-golf, restaurants and shops. Of course, Winter Park and Mary Jane also offer world-class skiing and boarding in the winter – only 20 minutes away. There is white water rafting or trout fishing along the Colorado River; boating and fishing on Grand Lake, Shadow Mountain Reservoir and Lake Granby.
This is truly a mountain biking mecca where you can find miles of trails and courses of every skill level. Enjoy day use of the nearby YMCA of the Rockies, with its mini golf, hiking, biking, roller-skating, tennis & swim pool. Enjoy a 20-minute scenic drive to the west and you are soaking in the natural healing hot springs of Hot Sulphur Springs. Head east and you are 15 minutes to bowling, pizza and movies at The Foundry in Winter Park or make use of the gym and swimming pool at the Recreation Center of the Valley. Spectacular hiking trails abound, including hikes to and along the Continental Divide Trail.
After a fun day of activities, come back to your “Cabin in the Aspens”, relax, and enjoy the beautiful view as the setting sun casts it’s alpine glow on the Continental Divide.

When we built this home, we were the second home to be built in the Winter Park Highlands development. There are several more cabins and homes today but on our road there are only three other homes (which you can barely see from our deck). You really feel secluded and private.
There are two wood-burning fireplaces. You will be allowed to use the fireplaces, but we ask that you are extremely cautious. Please do not chop wood inside - especially do not use the hearth as a chopping area. Previous guests did so and have marred the hearth.
The home is on a septic system, therefore please do not flush anything down the toilets except the toilet paper provided - no sanitary napkins, paper towels, etc.
This is a family-built vacation home that we have loved for many years and we ask that you treat it with respect and consideration.
