About the property

Mountain Views from house & deck on a secluded 2 acre lot on a quiet cul de sac

Our private, single family, dog friendly home on 2 acres is conveniently located four miles north of Winter Park Ski Area in the Winter Park Ranch Neighborhood of Fraser. It is on the free Winter Park Ski Area bus route. The backyard has a fenced area to keep the dogs in and the moose out. This area is accessible from the main living area, the master bedroom, & the garage.

The three bedrooms include a large Master Suite with a king sized bed, large dual head shower with bench, and two person Jacuzzi tub. The second main floor bedroom includes a queen bed and an adjacent full bath. The third bedroom is very large and is located on the first floor with twin bunk beds, a full-size bed and an adjacent 3/4 bath. The first floor also offers a second living area with sofa, TV, table and two chairs. This makes it a great place for a second family, a multi-generational group or to set-up the kids. It also offers privacy to a potential third couple.

The rear side of the property features a deck facing west with unobstructed views of Byers Peak. Access the deck from the master suite, the dining area, or the garage/fenced portion of the yard. The main living area features a gas fireplace and is open to the kitchen and dining area. The kitchen is neatly organized and fully furnished with all the cooking utensils, pots and pans you need to cook a gourmet meal. For the coffee aficionados, there is a Starbucks Barista Espresso/Cappuccino maker. A crockpot means you can have dinner waiting after a full day of outdoor fun.

The entire property has radiant floor heating including the oversized two car garage. This is the most comfortable heating system you will encounter. No drafts and warm floors keep your feet toasty all the time. This also means there is no need to cart your gear into the house after a long day of skiing. Boots will dry and be ready to go the next morning for another day on the mountain. Pull right into the heated garage and close out the cold behind you. If you need to tune your skis or have toys like mountain bikes and snow mobiles you can work on them in the cozy garage. The garage has a work area and work bench including a bike stand next to the two car parking. Should Fido need a bath after romping in the woods, hot and cold water are available right in the garage.

The house also features a large laundry room with a full sized washer and dryer.

There is excellent hiking and mountain biking from the front door. A single track connects you to the red gate network of trails to the east or use the trails that meander along the Fraser River to get to town and connect to Winter Park or to the west side of US40 where there is another set of trials near the St. Louis Campground. We've ridden and/or hiked the majority of these trials and would be happy to discuss them with you.

About Michael Neilands

Like many Coloradans, we are Midwest transplants that love it here. We hike, mountain bike, snowshoe, nordic and alpine ski. After playing, we love to cook and hang out with friends.

Michael Neilands purchased this house in 2014

Why Michael Neilands chose Winter Park

This property allows us to pursue all of our passions like hiking, biking, snowshoeing and skiing. The views provide a great backdrop. The heated garage allows us to separate the skis, bikes and muddy boots from the house. The interior walls were white when we started but we have added our own color palette.

What makes this house unique

Multi-family or multi-generational lay out and dog friendly with a large fenced in yard. You can also stay warm during the winter and pull directly into the heated garage.

Wonderful mountain getaway - and dog friendly too (fenced backyard)

  • 5 of 5

This home was easy to find and the directions were perfect. After turning off the first main road, it’s gravel but not curvy or hilly. I did go in the off season, but wouldn’t anticipate any issues in the snow with a four-wheel drive.

The best feature of this house, because I’m a dog owner and love to travel with my dogs, is the fenced backyard. The fence is secure, it’s six feet or higher, and there’s no chance that wildlife can get in unless you’re a tiny chipmunk. I did not have to worry about my dogs going outside, especially when it was dark. As a dog friendly rental, I also was unable to tell that dogs do stay there as with some other places.

The deck has a gorgeous view of Byers Peak. During the day and evening, the deck gets a nice bit of sun. There is a patio table and chairs to sit out and enjoy. The kitchen is spacious and all the appliances I used worked. There wasn’t anything I couldn’t find in one of the drawers. The dining room table is good for a large group. The main/TV room has two couches and a chair, so lots of room to sit. I was only there with my puppies, so plenty for one person, but large groups would be comfortable as well.

The jacuzzi tub is awesome! Everything was clean upon my arrival. Mike checked in to make sure everything was fine. This house just located a few minutes behind Safeway, but in a very quiet neighborhood, and so easy to get to Winter Park resort.

Thanks Mike for allowing me and the puppies to stay!

Great property, great location, dog friendly

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for a place to escape the brutal Texas heat in the mountains and a place that would allow us to take our small dogs. This property is ideally located in Fraiser and has a great view of Byers peak. It is relatively private, but yet convenient to a Safeway and only 5 minutes to Winter Park. The owner was great to work with and provide a very clean well kept property. I would highly recommend this property for a quite getaway. We will be back next summer.

Comfortable retreat

  • 5 of 5

Six adults, a two year old and an 8 month old thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The property is well equipped and well managed. We loved the view and feeling like we were truly getting away but with the convenience of the grocery store and other town amenities just a short drive away. Thanks again for such a wonderful place!

We totally loved it! We did not want to leave! The cabin is very homey!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the setup of the cabin! The living room, kitchen, master bedroom, 2nd bedroom and 2 bathrooms upstairs with access to the deck from dining room and master bedroom was awesome! Downstairs was 3rd bathroom, 3rd bathroom, large laundry room, another tv and living area. With an extra large garage! We loved it. The deck was amazing with amazing views of the mountains, Byers Peak! The most beautiful snow covered mountain!!!! It took my breath away! We especially loved the back yard! It is all fenced in, our 2 dogs loved it! The yard has a swing to sit in and stare at the mountains! The owners are amazing! They truly care if things are ok! And that the house is perfect for you! We loved it!!!! We will definitely be back!!!!

Great house for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Eight of us (plus one dog) spent four days in early July at this property. In a word, "fabulous!" The location was great - wooded and fenced lot, quiet, great view of the mountains to the west. Very large two-car garage and large driveway for multiple cars. Plenty of bathrooms and bedrooms, large laundry room with washer and dryer. The space was large enough for us to eat, play games, and watch TV together, and also split off and spend quiet time apart from the main group.

The fully equipped kitchen (gas range, electric oven, dishwasher, bowls/pots/pans/etc) made cooking meals and cleaning up afterwards as easy as at home - exactly what we were after in a property.

We used the large gas grill on the deck for cooking supper the final evening and with a couple of chairs from the inside, we were able to eat together out on the deck. July 4th Winter Park fireworks viewing tip: park in the lot of the two little ponds next to the Safeway by the highway - great view, no traffic.

Great instructions and directions were provided ahead of our visit, and the owner checked with us during our stay to make sure all was well - much appreciated!

We all had a great time here and with any luck will be able to return one day in the future. Cannot recommend this property highly enough!
