About the property

A luxury property perfectly suited to large groups and multiple families.

Emberwood Lodge is an ultra luxe 7,000 square foot cabin offering accommodations to those that expect the absolute finest in amenities. We are one of only a couple homes in the area to be included in Homeaway's Luxury Portfolio. This property is very popular for family reunions and corporate retreats. Emberwood is among the largest private rentals in Winter Park, offering comfortable capacity for up to 36 guests in beds. Luxuriously furnished all new in 2017 you will find the property to be inviting and relaxing.

Emberwood offers grand entertaining spaces such as the great room with soaring ceilings, breath taking views of Byers Peak, and a dining table for 16 (plus space at the island, outdoor table and game table). An additional living room with barnwood ceilings and its own fireplace allows large groups the opportunity to spread out. A total of four decks one with a large hot tub, all with spectacular views affords plenty of outdoor living space.

A second kitchen also allows groups such as family reunions flexibility in dining. The home features a total of 9 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, Two kitchens, a Great Room & Dining Area, Living Room, and a Game/Media Room. The basement bunk room offers 7 built in queen size bunk beds, a rec area, pinball and Foosball.

Located on a hillside above the Fraser River with unobstructed views of Byer's Peak the setting is as beautiful as it is convenient. The Safeway grocery store is located less than a mile down the street, and the free shuttle picks up about a 400 yards from the home with frequent access to Fraser, The Town of Winter Park and the Ski Resort.

Access to the Meadows Club is included. The Meadows Club includes a year round heated pool (it's 86 degrees- my kids were swimming in it when it was below zero outside) with amazing views. An outdoor hot tub (we also have our own hot tub on the lower deck of the Lodge side). The Meadows Club includes workout equipment, treadmill, etc. indoor racquetball, indoor basketball, a game area and sauna as well as an outdoor seasonal tennis courts. Please note that use of the Meadows Club should be limited to about six or eight guests at a not overwhelm them with 36 people at once.

A free shuttle offers quick access to downtown Winter Park and the ski resort. Amtrak train service and rental cars are available, making it possible to fly into DIA and take the train to the property.

Everyone knows winter is incredible (skiing, cross country, snowmobiling, sledding, ice skating, hot tubs and much more) but summer is actually our most popular time. The home will be booked almost every day each summer (lots of family reunions). This is one of the few homes that has central air conditioning (three separate furnace/AC units); some people say you don't need A/C in the mountains, but you really do in July and August. We are at the western base of Rocky Mountain National Park (about 39 minutes to the park gates) withe some of the most amazing views and endless hikes for all abilities. Grand Lake is about 30 minutes way.There is river tubing just down the street in the Fraser River. White Water Rafting is a little farther drive, but they they do pickup in town. There are tons of mountain biking trails (and places to rent bikes are everywhere) including downhill trails where you take the lift up and ride down. Nearby YMCA Snow Mountain ranch is lots of fun with horseback riding, summer sledding hill, archery, rock climbing, roller skating, craft cabin, etc. Check out the bowling alley and movie theater in Winter Park. There are weekly outdoor concerts and other festivals in Winter Park. In Fraser there is a new high ropes obstacle course (older kids, teens and adults), alpine sledding, jumpers and other attractions are at the ski area. We have an outdoor heated pool, hot tub, tennis courts basketball courts and gym that we belong to and guests may use in our neighborhood. Note that we are located in Fraser which is adjacent to Winter Park. Winter Park is a few minute drive away and there is a free shuttle as well as a trail leading from our neighborhood along the river to Winter Park. There are tons of great restaurants and the Safeway grocery store is less than a mile from our cabin.

About Andrew Batson

My wife and I own a real estate brokerage and custom home building company in Colorado. My wife is one of those that hates staying in hotels...She requires a five star hotel and even then its not to her standards. We build multi-million dollar homes and have taken the care and attention in furnishing our vacation home. So her approach to furnishing the home and the cleaning is an exceptionally high standard. All the furniture is new in 2017 and most is from Restoration Hardware. White bone china, new serving utensils, etc. are all new in 2017. The beds are very high quality and the linens are minimum 400 or 800 thread count. The main beds all have feather beds with a white duvet cover that is washed between each guest stay. Towels are of course brand new, very plush. High speed wireless internet and expanded Comcast cable is available throughout the property. All TVs are equipped with a streaming device so you can log into your own Netflix, Amazon or other streaming account. Bottom line is that the property will be new inside and furnished like you would expect at a Ritz Carlton.

Andrew Batson purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Andrew Batson chose Fraser

Whether its a get away with a group of friends, a family reunion or a special occasion like a wedding (although we do not allow weddings or receptions at the property) who wants to be spread out between a bunch of hotel rooms or condos. It's soooo much more fun to be together...especially if you have the space to maintain your own privacy plus common areas to spend time together. With four separate decks, 9 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms you'll have plenty of private space for adults. And the kids will be IN LOVE with the 1000 sqft bunk room with 7 queen beds foosball, a pinball machine, sofa and 55" TV with gaming system (plus a theater and game room in the attic as well). Whether it's sitting by the outdoor fire with amazing views of Byers Peak (or in the hot tub on the deck below) or enjoying a memorable meal in the massive great room this place is all about the memories!

What makes this cabin unique

If you're looking for a place with privacy and space for multiple families, yet demand luxury and cleanliness then this newly remodeled, luxuriously finished home may be just what you are looking for. Located near Winter Park Ski Resort and Rocky Mountain National Park, and Grand Lake this is a beautiful multi-season retreat.

Absolutely wonderful property & beautiful scenery. Quiet neighborhood. Owner responds quickly.

  • 5 of 5

We attended a large family reunion at Granby Ranch YMCA camp, but wanted to have some time together with just our immediate family in the evenings as well. Renting this spacious, beautiful home for 23 people was just perfect. We really enjoyed the property, and appreciated the ability to cook our own food and serve cafeteria style. Both kitchens are well stocked, and it is so nice to have a commercial gas stove & an extra large kettle available. The double convection ovens are also such a plus when cooking for a group. The white china & silverware made our meals special. The quality of the home and everything in it is so nice. In one of the kitchen cupboards, we found a three-tier silver serving tower, and used that to serve dessert at every meal.

The hot tub is excellent. The bunk room was enjoyed by many. The game room upstairs was a popular spot for the kids. The beds & bedding are all excellent. And there is AIR CONDITIONING! We learned that air conditioning in this area is rare, and we certainly appreciated being able to quickly cool the house down a bit when we returned home each day.

Several members of our family requested that I give a very well deserved 5-star review. Thanks for making your property available, and keep up the good work! We could have enjoyed staying for another week!

Amazing property in an area full of activities for all ages!

  • 5 of 5

Emberwood Lodge received rave reviews from all 10 families as they walked through the front door on Aug 5th this year. Our bi-annual family reunion of three generations had a wonderfull time in a lovely home that accommodated 33 guests with plenty of room for all kinds of, games, Karioke, and great community cooking! What a great kitchen in the main lodge. The cottage side was perfect for 1st generations looking for a quiet nook to read or that occasional "nap-time" after a little hiking or a raft trip on the river! As we left, everyone oldest 79 to youngest 6 signed a page on the guest book to say "Thanks" to Andrew Batson for making his home available to out of towners!l wish I could post the picture of that page...sooo fun!

Emberwood Lodge is a great place for large group!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this place for a 9 family reunion - 18 adults and 14 kids (ages 1-12). It was located near the west entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park, and there were many local activities to engage in. We enjoyed hiking many trails, time on Grand Lake, horseback and wagon rides, golf, and some Winter Park resort activities. Mostly, we had a lot of family fun right at the lodge!

The lodge is well furnished. We particularly enjoyed the large great room & kitchen and the deck with indoor and outdoor fireplace, and 4 washers & dryers. This was supported by a second kitchen and family room.

We were at capacity in the house and a few rooms were tight, but location had some great views of area mountains and there was plenty of parking. Overall, it was a great location for our group.

Great Spot for Large Groups

The lodge is perfect for large groups. The house layout is well thought out, and the home is well stocked (towels, cups, etc) to accommodate many many guests. This place is highly recommended.

Exactly as pictured and better!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This house was PERFECT for my 30th birthday! The house felt cozy and private even with ~25 adults in the house for 3 nights. The main floor is grand and fit us all in for dinner and cocktails with no problem. There are 2 kitchens and 2 grills, so cooking for a large group each night and morning was a breeze. Could not have had a better experience. Thank you for sharing your lovely home!

Gorgeous property with rooms for days!

  • 5 of 5

We had a reunion of family and friends coming in from all over the east coast. Everyone was able to sleep comfortably and eat together at the dining room table which is exactly what we wanted. We all loved this house and would definitely come back!

Winter Park
Car: recommended

When we started offering our new home for rent we were surprised (but in hindsight it's obvious why) that the summer is in even more demand than the winter. Everyone knows Winter Park & Mary Jane ski resort is one of Colorado's treasures, but summer and fall in the area have so much to offer too! Winter Park has one of the best downhill mountain bike courses in the world! And of course Grand Lake and the west entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park are just about 30 minutes away. Nearby Pole Creek Golf Course is ranked as one of the best mountain gold courses in Colorado. My kids LOVE YMCA Snow Mountain Ranch...the younger ones can spend all day at the draft cabin painting pottery. Plus they have dog sledding in the winter, horse back riding, summer tubing hill (awesome hill with AstroTurf that you slide down and a magic carpet conveyor to bring you back up), swimming, zip lines, archery, climbing walls and much more! Of course if you like to fish or hike you have world class opportunities all around you. In eh winter there is snowmobiling and in the summer white water rafting. While some towns are only focused on skiing, Winter Park/Fraser and Grand County truly are amazing year round destinations. While our summer dates have filled up fast, fall is so beautiful too with the leaves. And the Meadow ridge club pool that you'll have access too just down the street is heated to 86 degrees- my kids were swimming last week when it was below zero!
