Overview

About the property

This 2 BR/2 BA Condo with Gorgeous Mountain Views will Comfortably Sleep Seven

Nestled at the base of the Fraser Tubing Hills, Sasquatch's Hideaway is a great destination for both Winter and Summer vacationing. Whether you plan to ski and snowboard in the winter, or mountain bike, go fly fishing, and attend some outdoor concerts in the summer, your stay here is sure to be comfortable.

The master bedroom has a queen sized bed and six drawer dresser, as well as a large closet. With a similar storage setup, the second bedroom is great for kids, as the twin over full bunk will sleep three. Between these, you'll find two bathrooms and a laundry area with a full sized washer and dryer.

This is a corner unit, bottom floor, backing up to open space and the railroad. From the back porch, you have an unobstructed view of the Continental Divide to the South, Fraser Tubing Hills and Winter Park Resort immediately West, and Byers Peak to the North.

The Living Room is equipped with a full sized sofa bed which can sleep an additional two guests, as well a Blaze King wood stove that keeps the entire condo toasty warm during those cold winter months. The double patio doors and large windows allow for plenty of warm natural light.

The breakfast bar is great for family and friends to enjoy each others company while meals are being prepared. You can serve dinner right out of the convection oven onto the plates on the bar, and the downdraft range means that when you come back in the afternoon you won't still smell the bacon you cooked at breakfast.

The large dining room table is great for gathering after a day on the mountain, to share a meal, work on a puzzle, play cards and games, or use our free Wi-Fi to plan your next day's adventure.

The number of things within walking distance are almost too great to list: Grocery and Liquor Stores, Starbucks, Restaurants, Bars, a Winery, Post Office, The Lift bus stop (free shuttle to Winter Park), Amtrak station, and of course, winter tubing.

With so much to see and do in the Grand Valley, at all times of the year, Sasquatch's Hideaway is the best place to come back to relax after a day of fun.

About Garry Cook

I grew up in Philadelphia in the 70s and 80s, before moving to the Pocono Mountains in my teenage years. This is where I fell in love with Winter Sports.

In the early 90s, I moved to Pittsburgh, PA and spent some time working as a snowboard instructor at Seven Springs resort. After a while, I decided that just wasn't far enough west, and I needed to find some bigger mountains.

In the mid 90s I came to Denver, as well as the realization that there aren't many places better to live than Colorado. I've worked hard over the past two decades in order to be able to find the perfect vacation spot for me and my family. Hopefully, you will enjoy staying here as much as we do.

Garry Cook purchased this condo in 2012

Why Garry Cook chose Fraser

Winter Park is one of the most family friendly resorts that I've ever been to. Although, that doesn't mean it's not challenging too. When you've been boarding as long as I have, you need some double black bumped up glades to keep things interesting. In this regard, WPs Mary Jane doesn't disappoint.

So, that's why I chose Winter Park/Fraser as a base of operations for my Winter adventures. Not to mention, Winter Park also offers world class mountain biking and Grand Lake is just a half hour North, so Summers are filled with biking, fly fishing and boating fun.

What makes this condo unique

I spent most of 2012 looking for the perfect condo in Fraser, Colorado. On weekends I would head over Berthoud Pass and tour various places. But I always came back to this one. I must have visited it four times before I finally pulled the trigger in December and made it my own. I really think it was mostly for the view from the back porch. But also because it's just so cozy all year round.

Then I made it my own. I spent weekends in 2013 gutting the place, taking it down to the floorboards and building the perfect kitchen and bathroom, adding new carpet and paint, and updating it with nice comfortable furniture. We truly hope that you'll enjoy staying here as much as we do.

Winter Park
Car: not necessary

The Fraser Valley and Winter Park are year round mountain destinations in the heart of the Colorado Rocky Mountains with breathtaking scenery just 70 miles from Denver.

Many skiers and snowboarders already know Winter Park as a winter playground. It is also home to the National Sports Center for the Disabled, the world's largest disabled program. Beyond the ski area all the way to Rocky Mountain National Park, there is almost every type of outdoor recreation possible.

Our location, tucked against the Continental Divide, ensures dependable snow all winter long. Skiers are happy with two downhill resorts, learn-to-ski-and-ride parks, Mary Jane sized moguls for the die-hards, and four cross-country resorts with plentiful groomed tracks. Families love slipping, sliding and gliding on the tubing hills and skating rinks. Once in a lifetime activities are also plentiful: back country snowcat ski trips, dog sled rides, hot air balloon tours and horse-drawn carriages.

However, you shouldn't underestimate the draw of this area in the summertime, due to it's popularity in winter months. There's a great deal of us locals to testify they 'came for the winter, but stayed for the summer.'

The hikers and bikers are in a mountain paradise with over 600 miles of trails to explore, which is why it's referred to as 'Mountain Bike Capital USA'. River rafting, fishing, golfing, boating, horseback riding and an all time favorite with kids of all ages...the longest alpine slide in Colorado ensure that all are able to pursue their passion, or perhaps find a new one.

The warmer weather also attracts over 200 exciting events, including marquee music festivals, run, bike and skate events.

There are over 60 dining and nightlife options to tantalize your taste buds and shopping from the Village of Winter Park to the towns of Winter Park, Fraser, and Tabernash.

The Fraser Valley is authentic, friendly, comfortable and packed with activities and unique events year-round.

Best Place in Winter Park!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five and our dogs stayed in this condo over the Fourth of July weekend. We truly enjoyed it! The location is perfect, the back porch has amazing views, and the condo has everything you could ever need. The owner is very easy to work with and so accommodating. We will definitely return!

Perfect for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it! My husband and I were able to relax and enjoy the mountain air. Our 3 year old daughter LOVED the bear stuffed animals, the music box, and especially the trains. We would go outside and wave hi to the trains every time they passed. It was perfect and relaxing! Our dog was in heaven running the fields and watching the humming birds
