Located on a hillside above the Fraser River with unobstructed views of Byer's Peak the setting is as beautiful as it is convenient. The Safeway grocery store is located less than a mile down the street, and the free shuttle picks up about a 400 yards from the home with frequent access to Fraser, The Town of Winter Park and the Ski Resort.
Access to the Meadows Club is included. The Meadows Club includes a year round heated pool (it's 86 degrees- my kids were swimming in it when it was below zero outside) with amazing views. An outdoor hot tub (we also have our own hot tub on the lower deck of the Lodge side). The Meadows Club includes workout equipment, treadmill, etc. indoor racquetball, indoor basketball, a game area and sauna as well as an outdoor seasonal tennis courts. Please note that use of the Meadows Club should be limited to about six or eight guests at a time...do not overwhelm them with 36 people at once.
A free shuttle offers quick access to downtown Winter Park and the ski resort. Amtrak train service and rental cars are available, making it possible to fly into DIA and take the train to the property.
Everyone knows winter is incredible (skiing, cross country, snowmobiling, sledding, ice skating, hot tubs and much more) but summer is actually our most popular time. The home will be booked almost every day each summer (lots of family reunions). This is one of the few homes that has central air conditioning (three separate furnace/AC units); some people say you don't need A/C in the mountains, but you really do in July and August. We are at the western base of Rocky Mountain National Park (about 39 minutes to the park gates) withe some of the most amazing views and endless hikes for all abilities. Grand Lake is about 30 minutes way.There is river tubing just down the street in the Fraser River. White Water Rafting is a little farther drive, but they they do pickup in town. There are tons of mountain biking trails (and places to rent bikes are everywhere) including downhill trails where you take the lift up and ride down. Nearby YMCA Snow Mountain ranch is lots of fun with horseback riding, summer sledding hill, archery, rock climbing, roller skating, craft cabin, etc. Check out the bowling alley and movie theater in Winter Park. There are weekly outdoor concerts and other festivals in Winter Park. In Fraser there is a new high ropes obstacle course (older kids, teens and adults), alpine sledding, jumpers and other attractions are at the ski area. We have an outdoor heated pool, hot tub, tennis courts basketball courts and gym that we belong to and guests may use in our neighborhood. Note that we are located in Fraser which is adjacent to Winter Park. Winter Park is a few minute drive away and there is a free shuttle as well as a trail leading from our neighborhood along the river to Winter Park. There are tons of great restaurants and the Safeway grocery store is less than a mile from our cabin.
