This is our second condo in the Beaver Village Complex (please see listing #308388 which is the listing for our first condo which we bought 15+ years ago). We have been told for years by our guests that our original 'Home Away From Home' is very comfortable and welcoming (please read our reviews!), and we have made this second condo comfortable and welcoming as well. Pride of ownership can been seen throughout. This condo is affectionately called "Duckland" because when we purchased the condo, the decor had many ducks included. As you will see, we have kept a few of those ducks, but we have updated the decor and condo amenities considerably. Please keep in mind that for large groups, both condos can be rented as they are next door to each other (in separate buildings, but they are end units in each building, and the dining room side windows face each other).
Both bedrooms have their own bathrooms, with the master bath having 2 sinks. Both bedrooms also have queen sized beds with twin mattresses tucked underneath for additional guests (our children often bring friends to share in a fun week or weekend, so we need extra beds). We also have a comfortable pull-out couch in the living room, which gives us total bed space for 8 guests.
Ours is a 1st Floor Condo (no stairs involved!), but the private balcony off the living room is elevated, so you feel like you are in a tree house when sitting outside. We often have many visiting hummingbirds, and sometimes a friendly fox (which one guest named 'Socks') comes around for a visit. Another special feature is the dining area window (we have an end unit) which looks out over a perfect sledding run - our kids call it 'the luge' - we keep sleds in the closet for our kids' and guests' enjoyment.
The Beaver Village Complex has the perfect Winter Park location. There is both a free Winter Park shuttle bus and a free private Beaver Village shuttle bus that picks you up right outside our unit and takes you the 1.5 miles to the Winter Park Ski Area base, as well as to the towns of Winter Park (which begins only 2 blocks from our condo - a very short walk) and Fraser (where the large Safeway grocery store is located,along with the Fraser Tubing Hill). Although we are very centrally located, we are secluded in the woods among Aspen and Pine trees that have been beautifully preserved and protected. The clubhouse has a large indoor pool, three hot tubs and a sauna - all perfect for Apres ski fun - and no waiting for hot tub space! We are also within about 45 minutes of Rocky Mountain National Park, Hot Sulphur Springs, Grand Lake and Lake Granby.
Some things we enjoy while staying at our condo include (in no particular order): great restaurants (Volario's, Hernando's Pizza, Deno's, Pepe Osaka's, and Fontenot's Cajun are some favorites, but there is everything - fine dining to McDonald's to sushi!), Fraser Tubing Hill (with a lift, so you don't have to walk up!), a soak and massage at the Hot Sulphur Springs (Winter Park itself has great massage artists too who will give you a massage at our condo), bowling, ATV rentals in Grand Lake, strolling the Boardwalk in Grand lake, and renting a paddle boat in Grand Lake (just make a day of it at The Lake!), watching the Elk herds in Rocky Mountain National Park, enjoying one of the many free music and art festivals in Winter Park (call WP for a schedule), playing golf at Pole Creek (voted the best public course in Colorado), using the playground and skateboard park at Hideaway Park just a few blocks away - the list really doesn't end. There is just so much to do, enjoy and appreciate in Winter Park and the surrounding areas that it's impossible to give a comprehensive list our favorite activities.
