Overview

About the property

Base Camp on Jane Creek is a group of 18 luxury townhomes built for fun!

This unit offers numerous amenities that make a Winter Park vacation one that you and your family or friends will remember for the rest of your life. Do you need room for a lot of people? We have actual bed space for 13 with space for 2 more on a fold out sofa, total of 15. We feel that a real bed is much more comfortable than an air mattress or pull out mattress/sofa. Do you want easy access to the slopes? You can either walk a few yards to the ski corridor and ski to the base (ski in/ski out) or you can walk a few yards down the cul de sac and the green line bus, that runs continuously, will pick you up and take you to the Zephyr lift. This bus will be at the loading point approximately every 20 minutes, there is NO other line in the bus system that picks up that frequently or drops you so close to the lifts. You can also use the bus system to travel into Winter Park, Fraser and other destinations (this requires switching buses). Ski rental (Breeze) is available about a block away at the Iron Horse property. Enjoy golf? Pole Creek and

Grand Elk Golf Clubs are within a 20 minute drive. Do you want to relax in a spa at the end of the day? We had a new one installed in November of 2014. Want the option of personal space? Separate living areas allow for conversations in multiple places. Do you have children? So do we! We have stocked items like a high chair, a pack-n-play, swim diapers and other items. We have an X-box One in the basement with a couple of E-rated games along with several G rated movies. Our children use their sleds and play/explore in the cul de sac in front of the unit and along the path in the woods behind the townhome. We have rented several units in Winter Park over the years for our family vacations. This unit, by far, is the most spacious and most comfortable we've ever stayed at. You will not forget the positive memories you create while vacationing at 464 Base Camp.

About Lanny Greenhalgh

We are the Greenhalgh family and live in south-central Nebraska raising crops, cattle, and as you can see, KIDS!!! We homeschool and use that opportunity to teach the children about the importance of enterprise, to the glory of God. By the age of 7 each child is required to have their own business. Robert milks, Ashley does eggs, Hannah bakes and David raises hogs. They all also have their daily chores to do around the house. As we prepared the Winter Park property for rental each child was assigned various duties. There was a lot of cleaning to do, there were several shelving units and other items to assemble and my 12-year old daughter installed the new thermostats! We have a motto in our household that states, 'Work first, play later.' This Winter Park property is the culmination of God blessing a lot of work so that we can now have some play time. We expect the children to learn numerous lessons about the upkeep of a property and about the blessings of being able to enjoy it.

Why Lanny Greenhalgh chose Winter Park Area

We have traveled to many places over the years on family vacations and found none we prefer over Winter Park, CO. Skiing and snowboarding top the list but there are so many other things to do and enjoy. In the winter there are snowmobiling rentals nearby and many other activities. The children love the Coca-Cola tubing, we also tube at the YMCA and there is a tube hill in Fraser. During the summer nothing beats downhill mountain biking (after being carried to the top of the mountain on a lift). It is a huge thrill. Plenty of other hiking and biking activities in the summer as well. There is an alpine slide, mini golf, bounce houses, zip line and other activities at the base of the mountain in the summer time. The YMCA I mentioned, called Snow Mountain Ranch, is near Winter Park and is loaded with family fun opportunities. Some golf courses with the most amazing views are located a few minutes of our property. Our children also thoroughly enjoy white water rafting. Winter Park is a year-round vacation playground.

What makes this townhome unique

The Base Camp on Jane Creek 464 property is unique in that it's not just a place to stay, it's a place to enjoy living. We've built some very good memories staying in the smallest places possible on our trips, but we didn't want to purchase a unit like that. We looked at several properties in WP that would have been large enough to hold us. However, staying at a place and being on top of each other all of the time is not the most enjoyable way to spend a vacation. When we were looking for a place it was also crucial to us that the children be able to easily access the base ski lifts. We originally thought that the Zephyr Mountain Lodge units were the only properties that fit this bill. We were wrong! Since the green line bus route stops only a few steps from our door and drops you off at the base it is arguable that we are now closer to the lifts than if we had a ZML unit. The green line is the only colored shuttle line that drops you off right by the Zephyr and Arrow lifts, with all of the other routes you must walk through the entire village to get to the lifts. We are VERY thankful that base access is so easily available. Our 8 year-old can safely and easily navigate himself to the base for skiing, snowboarding and other activities. If the bus system isn't enough, we also have ski in/ski out access via the ski corridor behind the unit. Easy lift access is very important to us and we think you will find it to be very enjoyable as well. If you need to stop mid-day with a little one you won't be gone from the slopes for long to take them home.

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our third visit at this amazing home and it was, once again, spectacular! I can not say enough about this house. It is in a perfect location with easy access to town and slopes. Fully stocked with all the comforts of home, large and spacious from top to bottom, this house has it all. It is wonderful for large families with lots of sleeping space and a very spacious, open kitchen for everyone to gather. It is a magical place!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

The town home is gorgeous. It was perfect for our group of 7. The hot tub on the back deck was great after a day of skiing. Also, the owners are very nice and quick to respond to any questions. No problems or issues at all, we will definitely be back.

Very nice house and well equipped. The ski in/out was very hard to do.

  • 4 of 5

The property had great kid stuff and it was great that the house was stocked with products for our use from toilet paper to salad dressing.

The Perfect Vacation Home for Large Groups!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful town home was perfect for our group of 10. Great floor plan with plenty of comfortable living space and privacy. Furnishings and provisions are all top-of-the-line. Lower level bunk room/rec room is ideal for kids and teens. Ski-in/out access makes skiing simple for large groups. We are already looking forward to coming back!

Over-the-top location, venue and hospitality from the owners.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (10 adults and 1 toddler) had the pleasure of staying in "play hard" for a week and we all wanted to cry when we had to leave. The condo is a perfect ski-in ski-out for all levels. Rather take the bus? It literally picks/drops you at the entrance to the complex (a few feet). The home was spotless clean (and I am a neat freak), the kitchen over the top stocked (which allowed us to eat-in most meals) and the bedding accommodations were perfect for our 4 families. Two sets of washer/dryers made for getting the gear ready for the next day, easy for 10 skiers. I am a retired corporate event planner and have had the pleasure of traveling with the opportunities to stay at some very nice resorts. However, these accommodations were hands down the best I have experienced. An added bonus - the owners are simply delightful to work with. We will be back soon!
