Winter Park Home

Welcome to our 4 Bedroom Home in Winter Park, Colorado!

You’ve just found the perfect place to escape to in Winter Park. Our fabulous mountain lodge is truly in the ultimate LOCATION!

Why? Because the house is tucked away in front of a wonderland of trees and flowers with a roaring creek in the backyard. Yet, step right outside the front door and walk two minutes to ALL of Winter Park’s top restaurants and shops.

Great for groups or private family gatherings. We’ve had weddings and even baptisms here. It’s that beautiful.

Some quick highlights of our place:

· Sleeping arrangements for up to 13 guests

(Remember, you can also rent out the cabin if your group is larger! Check out the link to our cabin for more information.)

· Deluxe kitchen, fully stocked with pans, plates, etc.
· Laundry facilities
· Easy to light, gas
fireplace to enjoy day or night.
· Master shower is wheelchair accessible
· Game room with separate television/DVD/darts/game table
Free ski bus stops directly in front of house to take you to slopes
· Convenient Winter Park shopping and restaurants literally across the street

And, of course, THE HOT TUB! Our 8 person hot tub is surrounded by aspens and tall pines with the creek less than 20 feet away!

Skier’s & Snowboarders!

As noted above, the ski bus route is directly in front of the house. Easy for each skier in your party to hit the slopes or to return to the warm home at their convenience, versus waiting for the group to coordinate. Over the winter months, these buses run every half an hour. Cross country ski trails are also enjoyed here in Winter Park.

Everyone’s Heaven:

For those of you who don’t ski, you still couldn’t ask for a better location to stay while visiting Winter Park.

Just open the front door and walk across the street to shop in downtown Winter Park. Choose from a number of fabulous restaurants for everyone to enjoy including yummy choices such as Italian, Mexican, Chinese & BBQ!

Or take in a movie at the town’s tiny theatre only a half a mile away.

Walking & biking are fun with convenient paths through the town. And don’t forget fishing & horseback riding!

During the winter, we have an awesome TUBING HILL 10 minutes away & an ice skating rink. (Skate rentals are available at Christy Sports, located across the street.)

Finally, Winter Park has a brand new recreation center literally 5 minutes away from our house by car, with indoor pools, lazy rivers, slides, steam rooms, saunas, exercise equipment & jogging path.

If you just want to relax, we’ve got a beautiful deck in the back of the house with the hot tub overlooking the creek or just snuggle up to our fireplace in a big leather chair and enjoy a good book.

This house is roomy and comfortable, decorated with the ambiance of a beautiful mountain lodge complete with log furniture throughout the house, big leather sofa in front of the fireplace and touches of antiques everywhere. Every room has a theme, from wagon wheels in the dining room to a fun black bear bedroom upstairs. The kitchen has been updated in December, 2004 with new appliances and cobble stone flooring from New England’s farmhouses. It’s completely stocked with all of the necessary kitchen supplies. All you’ll need to do is bring a sack of groceries before hibernating for your stay.

If you prefer to go out, check out the restaurants mentioned above again... WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE! This makes it so much easier coordinating large groups. Everyone can catch up on their own time-frame.  After all... this is YOUR VACATION!  Relax...



Located on main floor, king-size log bed and furniture, TV/DVD and an attached private master bath with the same cobble stone flooring as in the kitchen. The shower is open and wide enough for a wheelchair to fit through with no floor stops. Finally, the glass French doors open to the back deck, offering beautiful view of the wooded property and the creek.


Located on main floor, a queen-size sleigh bed that is considered the most comfortable bed in the house. Warm cherry wood throughout this room including a desk armoire for quiet office use, if needed, during your stay.


Located upstairs with wood floors and a double bed. This is a small, but sunny room with touches of antiques, slanted ceilings with a couch and a beautiful view of the mountains from a cozy window alcove.


Located upstairs with wood floors, 2 queen-size beds and 1 twin bed. This is a larger room, with fun black bears and log furniture, again with slanted ceilings and a mountain view. A family of five can sleep in this room alone and be comfortable.


Again, the kitchen is recently remodeled with new appliances and flooring. This room has a huge table that can pull open to 9 feet long, accommodating all in your group. It is completely stocked with enough plates, glasses, silverware and pans necessary to make your stay comfortable.

*Do you have more than 13 people?? No problem! See out Winter Park Cabin Rental. This tiny cabin is actually located on the same property, but separate from the house and it can accommodate another 3 adults comfortably. Again, for more information on this rental, please see the link located above.


Children/toddlers/infants? We’ve got toys for all ages and even some DVD’s to help entertain the younger set. Also available is a booster seat — located in the kitchen.

Cleaning is taken care of by Amissa Kitzenberg, who comes and cleans after your visit, leaving your entire stay private and non-intrusive.

The dining room has another table that can easily seat eight. It is actually a huge wagon wheel with 4 curved chairs that seat two people each. We also have a wagon wheel bar in this area with a moose to watch over all.

The living room has a gas fireplace and a TV/DVD. This room has been updated , a big comfortable leather couch and two leather recliners.

A small
entertainment area is upstairs with a game table, a T.V./DVD player. The sofa is a pull-out bed which sleeps 2 adults.

Three bathrooms complete the tour of the home. As mentioned above, the master bath is brand new with a big walk-in shower, all finished in a beautiful cobblestone and features a copper sink. In addition to its beauty, we’ve tried to make it completely wheelchair accessible with a larger pocket door and easy access to the shower with no floor stops.

The main bathroom is located on the first floor and it has a tub and an old fashioned sink. 

Finally, the 3rd bathroom is located on the top floor of the house. This room has a shower and a pedestal sink with slanted ceilings.


The WINTER fun is

the best in WINTER PARK!

We told you...


Well, that about covers our Winter Park Mountain Home.

As you can see, we’re very proud of it and we’re confident that you’ll enjoy it as much as we do.

Please check the link above for the calendar with all of the available dates as well as the link with directions from the Denver International Airport. It is a very simple drive for those of you renting a car.

Other transportation is available such as the “Home James” shuttle service and even a fun train.


Q:    How do I book the Winter Park Home?
A:    Easy... You just  check the grey square in the upper right-hand corner of this link and make sure the place is available on the days you’d like to stay here. Then you check the deposit requirements & daily rates during the time of your stay. 
Finally, you make a the required deposit through PayPal or by credit card by simply clicking on this link:

**Specific payment instructions are explained in turquoise box below if you’re having any problems understanding how to proceed. 

Q:    How do I know if the place is available when I want to stay there?
A.    Again, easy. Just click on the grey square above under availability.
Q.    How many people can stay in this place? Are there extra charges?
A.    The maximum capacity for this place alone is 13 guests, but we can rent out the cabin which sleeps up to 3 more guests and it’s on the same property. There is an extra charge to rent out the cabin... you’d have to check the cabin’s link to see what the daily rentals are and combine both rentals for the total cost. It’s perfect for a lot of guests/families. That way, everyone can split the costs and it’s very reasonable.

Q.    Are pets allowed? Is there an extra charge for pets?
A.    We love pets and travel with our two dogs everywhere, so we made a vow to allow pets into our home here.  At this point, there is no extra charge ahead of time for pets. However, we do reserve the right to charge for any damage caused by your pet after the stay, such as carpet, door, furniture damage. We’ve been really fortunate to have well-behaved pets stay with us and we hope to keep it easy and fair for all in the future.

   What is the check-in time and check-out time? Can I get an earlier or later time?
   The standard check-in time is 5:00 p.m. and the check-out time is 11:00 a.m.  We are somewhat flexible however, and if these times don’t work with you, please e-mail us or text us to see if the times could be adjusted. Several factors affect our decision... whether we have more guests coming in, the amount of people in your party, and finally, if our cleaning schedule allows for it on the day(s) requested. If we can accommodate you, we will! Remember, we travel for a living, so we can totally appreciate different flight schedules, etc.

   How do I get a key, once all of the paperwork is completed?
   Easy... We will send you a confirmation and the key code to the door of the rental. Once you arrive at the house, use the code on the door.  This rental does NOT require a key to get in. Just lock it every time you leave and use the same code to get back inside. Simple.

   How far away is the ski resort from the house? 
   Winter Park is one of the largest ski areas in Colorado and is ideal for ALL levels of skiers. Our house is in the perfect location because it’s only 10 minutes away from the resort, yet it’s literally ACROSS the street from the main hub of activity in Winter Park. 

Is there any public transportation from the house to the resort?
  YES! YES! YES! Another key reason this house is great for everyone in your group. The city of Winter Park provides FREE bus transportation and IT LITERALLY STOPS IN FRONT OF OUR HOUSE throughout the day. 10 & 50 minutes past the hour, during the daytime. It’s great for each skier to leave and come back at their leisure, without worrying about waiting for everyone in the group to coordinate.

  Transportation to the resort sounds easy enough... but what about the guests who aren’t interested in the resort and just want to spend time in the town of Winter Park.
   Again, no problem. The main shopping/restaurant area of Winter Park is called Cooper Creek Square and it’s RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET from the house!  All you have to do is walk out the front door. If you’d like to go further up, the city provides free year round bus transportation from Winter Park to Fraser as well. This bus strops right on the highway (5 minute walking distance from our front door) in front of Cooper Creek Square and runs throughout the day. Google Winter Park Bus Transportation for more specific information.

   How about transportation to/from the airport
   A couple of options besides renting a car. One is through a shuttle service called HOME JAMES. Check out their link for costs and times:
Another link to a shared shuttle service is:
 We have a fun train that runs through the town. It’s part of the rich history and charm of Winter Park. Check out the link at:

   How can I get lift tickets? 
   Easy enough. Just contact the resort directly at:
for daily / season passes.  

   Is the hot tub available on the property?
   Step out the back door and enjoy a hot tub big enough for a group of 8+ people. Towels are provided in the bins right next to the hot tub.

    Talking about towels, are regular towels & items provided for my entire group?
   Yes, this house is stocked with towels, plates, glasses, pans, coffee, toilet paper, paper towels, EVERYTHING you’ll need to get started. You’ll need to supply your own food, though there are some spices and condiments usually leftover in the refrigerator and cupboards. 

   What is the temperature like in the mountains?
   You can pretty much count on it being chillier than in Denver... Our best advice is to have LAYERS ready. Also, check the weather via the newspaper or google.

    What about real estate in Winter Park? I might be interested in looking at properties while I’m there.
   We can’t recommend Peter Gach enough for this job. He helped us find this heavenly place and he’s continued on as a good friend.  Please check out his website at:

   Is there anything for kids to do in Winter Park besides ski?
    Absolutely!  Check out our daughter’s special website she created with her best friend. They focus on Key Largo, but they have tons of pictures and their opinions on what to do in all of our rentals!  
Their website is:

 Winter Park has a brand new recreation center not more than 5 minutes away from our home. It’s got a lazy river, a rock wall, amazing swimming pool and slide, work-out room, indoor jogging track and more.  it’s perfect for anyone in your group!
ALSO, the town park is across the highway, again, so close to the house, you could walk. Perfect in the summer with outside concerts held, a fun playground with a rock wall that even professionals practice on and a fabulous skateboard area! Not to mention wonderful bike paths throughout the park and the town, running right next to the river. Bike rental places are available all over town.
Finally, the ski resort has a great summer set-up with putt-putt golf, a MAZE to die for, an alpine slide and, again, a lift to take the radical bikers up so they can barrel down the mountain. During the winter, I can’t tell you how fun the tubing hills are here. They even have their own mini lifts or auto-walkways that move up the hills, so it’s the easiest thing in the world. AND A BLAST! They even have a firepit at the bottom where you can roast marshmallows, have a beer or hot chocolate and just watch the kids play. It’s the best!
