The Winter Park Ski Haus has everything you need for a family reunion or a multi-family vacation. This 5 bedroom / 6 bath house sleeps 17 people! Located only a few hundred meters from the ski lifts, this uniquely decorated house is nestled in the pines with spectacular views of the continental divide. Relax in the 6 person hot tub after a day of skiing at one of Colorado’s premier ski resorts or mountain biking in the surrounding national forest. The Village at Winter Park is a short walk for coffee shops, restaurants, bars, shopping, tubing and outdoor ice skating!
This house has all the character you'd want for a relaxing vacation. The open floor plan and large kitchen allow for all your holiday and vacation cooking needs. The interior décor includes artisinal metalwork and historic photos of the Frasier Valley. Kids will have a blast in their own bunk bed room and adults can enjoy one of the four other bedrooms featuring king, queen and full-sized beds. Although not ADA compliant, two of the bedrooms (and the kids' bunk room) are located on the main floor with only a couple steps up from the driveway.
There are free shuttles to the Village at Winter Park or to the Town of Winter Park and a bike/pedestrian path connects the two. Both offer plentiful entertainment opportunities – from coffee shops and restaurants to ice skating and shopping. In winter, you can walk out the door of the Ski Haus and enjoy cross-country skiing, or simply stay in and snuggle by the fire reading a book. In summer, the options are also endless - ranging from the tame (putt-putt golf and hiking in the national forest) to the extreme (downhill mountain biking).
Part of the Winter Park charm are the railroad tracks that run the length of the town and the valley. The Ski Haus is less than 30 meters from the tracks and while many enjoy the sound of trains, some may not.
