Description

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday townhome in Winter Park - 464 Iron Horse Way Base Camp

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.

Outstanding Family Get Away!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in the townhome for 10 days and had an amazing time. Just to give you an idea of our family, we have 5 children ranging from the ages 11-19 and my wife and are in our early 40's.

There was so much for all of us to do together as a family. We enjoyed the private, quiet, beautiful, natural surroundings of the townhome and the fact that we were walking distance from mountain climbing, biking, alpine slide, shopping, movie theatre, restaurants, fishing, etc. Not walking distance, but still not far, was white water rafting, cliff jumping, golf, boating, zipline, etc. There was so much to do that we weren't able to get it all done in the 10 days.

After a full day of great activities we would look forward to returned to the townhome and relaxing in the hot tub, eating a home cooked meal in the fully functioning kitchen, and watching a tv show or movie on the TV's throughout.

Our stay was active, refreshing and restful. With a family dynamic like ours it's difficult to satisfy everyone on a vacation. This was an exception to that rule. We all greatly enjoyed the townhome, activities, nature and rest.

We highly recommend this townhome if you're looking for a place to just get away!!!

A splendid stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My family cannot say enough about our wonderful stay at this townhome!! It takes only moments to settle into the hospitality of this rental. It is equipped to house any size family combinations. The bedrooms are welcoming and so very comfortable and the cleanliness is commendable! The kitchen is fully furnished with everything you need to prepare any meal. Literally, I wanted to pick it up and take it home with me!! The grill on the deck is easy to operate and a superb feature. We all enjoyed the hot tub as an end of the day treat as well. I especially love the stream running behind the townhome-pure Colorado mountain charm.

The Winter Park mountain views are absolutely majestic. There are hiking trails immediately available around this townhome and just a short distance away are many more (be sure to hike the Ute Trail!). In addition to all this, you cannot ask for better hosts. You will be pampered, listened to, and accommodated in every way if you contact them. This is a perfect location with extraordinary provisions for a wonderful Winter Park vacation!!

Beautiful property, well-stocked and complete with amenities!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful place to stay and was centrally located near the Winter Park base activities this summer. The beds were clean and comfortable and the home had anything the family might need to cook or relax. The hot tub was amazing and the environment was perfect for large families. Not a thing was broken or in disrepair. It was updated in a comfortable yet modern style, with free wifi. The furniture in the home was outstanding quality yet comfortable and beautiful. I highly recommend a vacation here!

Very clean, great location, well equipped with multiple places to relax and enjoy this wonderful place. I would highly recommend this town home for any large group or family get away. I don't believe we could have found anything better.

Amazing, quiet cul de sac full of exploration, peacefulness, and God's beauty!

  • 5 of 5

The townhome was amazing, had plenty of space and all the necessities you would want a home to have when traveling. We found items from dryer sheets to sugar and vanilla extract in the times of need. ;-) Everything was nice and clean and the listing was just what we expected. I did realize once we arrived there was no A/C but the owner assured us those summer nights with the windows open would be suffice and it was!! (I was able to communicate with the owner at all hours of the day and he responded quickly and with a great answer every time) You could adjust the coldness at night depending on how many windows you wanted open. It was perfect! I would love to stay here again, maybe in the winter and check out the snow skiing. We walked to everything nearby, the ski village was just around the corner and had lots of places to eat, the kids played on the mountain and shop. We drove to nearby cities to horseback ride, hike and to ride a train. It was just the place we needed to be on our family vacation. Thank you Lanny for your hospitality and for sharing your beautiful home with us. We would love to come back!!

Excellent vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

I'd absolutely recommend this vacation rental to anyone. The home was very nice, accommodated all 15 of us easily (3 families!) and provided a great spot to celebrate my parents' 15 year anniversary. Since it was late June, the upstairs bedrooms were a little warm for sleeping but Lanny was very responsive to my suggestion for more fans, and I think that will help pull cool air upstairs. Having the sounds of the water stream in the backyard was really great. No complaints.
