Timber Creek Retreat

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 30, 2014
House, 6 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, 25 Sleeps

In the winter, use this magnificent mountain lodge hideaway as your base for skiing all 4 peaks a short drive away, and the magnificent runs of Vail, Keystone, Copper are less than an hour away. Or enjoy the snowboarding, cross country, snow shoeing, hiking, rock climbing, sleigh rides, snowmobiling, swimming, ice skating,tennis, racket ball, yoga, palites, basketball, workouts, concerts, art shows, antique show, ice sculptures, and skating rink.

in the summer, use this palatial chalet as you contemplate golf, hiking, running, fishing, river rafting, horses, tennis, swimming, art shows, Oktoberfest, climb six 14000 ft peaks; entertain masses of friends; or even use it for a corporate rendezvous.

THIS AMAZING PRIVATE HOME of three levels, perfectly blends cordoned off King Size suites from the KidZone of youth-filled activities, while still offering common areas for the entire group to happily congregate.

ON THE MAIN LEVEL there is a subdued-elegant living room hosting vaulted ceiling and 20 ft rock fireplace. Immediately adjacent is the spacious dining room with easy seating for over ten people, to say nothing of the breakfast table for 5 and the breakfast bar for 4 more. The kitchen serves all needs, with its spans of granite and cabinets and the mesh of all high-tech appliances that befit the finest restaurants.

The Main Level also has two large master bedrooms - with king beds, gas stoves, TV-filled armoires and access to the patio facing a quilt of pine trees. The Master Bathroom is 'to die for'. The patio will produce contentment in the 10 seating hot tub, while grilling steaks on the bar-b-q, or simply sitting and contemplating how not to go home.

THE UPPER LEVEL is just for two activites. The KidZone is a "wow!" surprise. Unofficially designated as "adults by invitiation only", it houses TV, DVD, foose ball, game-cube, basketball hoop, hang-out space and plenty of bunk beds, trundles and puzzle beds with pillows for 12. It even has its own private bathroom. The door under the "KidZone" sign, separates the study-atmosphere of business needs: email checking, Googling, copying, faxing; or just quiet reading or snoozing.

THE LOWER LEVEL has more King size suites and bathrooms. And, it has THE GREAT ROOM: Oversized TV, full-sized pool table, fireplace, pub table, wet bar, and plenty of space to sit or dance.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a fabulous home for our family celebration! We were able to spread out so adults and kids could have their times

together and really enjoy each other. Your home is superbly well equipped, and we found everything we needed (sometimes looking) and

made ourselves quite at home. The bedrooms were perfect, and the kids really enjoyed their zone. We found pool, cards, fooz-ball, talking,

watching Broncos etc to be great….the three levels were especially flexible and useful. The extra fridge was very handy, and the double

ovens and two microwaves were most helpful. We would like to return in the future, despite the snow going up, and enjoy your place again.

This is a 2 star rental, at best. When we arrived, we had to buy our own kitchen trash can and utensils (vegetable peeler, can opener, cork screw, etc). The owners later had the management company supply utensils for the house, but the kitchen is still not stocked. The dining room chairs were falling apart. The owners had the management company replace the chairs with even more uncomfortable used ones. There is a guest info book that has no current contact info, so having issues resolved took days. But! The guest book was right about one thing - the hot water heater is good for 3 showers and then you need to wait an hour...this could be a problem for you if you have a group that wants to take more than 3 showers and go someplace. The owners are pretty nice to work with even though they quickly let you know that guests "aren't supposed to try to manage the property"...unfortunately, they have a lousy property management company that makes this house a 2 star rental (ex. We told the owners that the pillowcases had holes in them and the management company dropped off a package of 200 thread count pillowcases.) The house has nice bones but as it is today, it's not very nice and definitely not worth the asking rental price. If you're looking for an upscale house, this definitely isn't it.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately this guest arrived at the moment we had fired our management company and hired new on site managers and maintenance people. Our new help spent their first 2 days at work filling the home with missing items requested by this guest and repairing all that needed repairing. They have since made a comprehensive list of all minor problems and also fixed those.
We, as well as our guests, were very upset at the shape of our home left by the management company.
All is back in order now and back to a 5 star stay for future guests.
Thanks

Great house but some things to be aware of: 5 bedroom NOT 6, fireplace broken & deposit late

Great house but some things to be aware of: 5 bedroom NOT 6, fireplace broken & deposit late
  • 2 of 5
My family (extended family included) rented this house over Thanksgiving weekend. The home was lovely - very spacious and comfortable for 20+ people to stay.

The owner said there were 6 bedrooms + 1 loft, FALSE! There are 5 bedrooms plus a loft. This left my parents sleeping on 2 couches in the loft area (which is above the main living room). The fire place also wasn't working and there was no advanced notice on that. When I called the maintenance guy he told me he had been aware of it for weeks but it won't be fixed until the week after we left. VERY DISAPPOINTING as we had the house reserved for months. The kitchen is a very awkward lay out for serving meals to keep that in mind. The hot tub is nice but has way too much chlorine/bromine, left people smelling like it after getting out even after several showers.

Finally, the owners were very responsive to us until they received their deposit. After that time, there was no response to emails with questions and their emails even started bouncing back despite providing us a lists of contacts to use. Additionally, the deposit (a hefty one) was returned late. The contract said it would be returned within 30 days of check out. We checked out on 11/25 and the DEPOSIT WAS NOT RECEIVED UNTIL JANUARY 2013.

Owner's Response: Dear Patrick

I am so sorry you were not pleased. Hopefully this will explain

Our home is 6 bedrooms home and loft w-2 full single bed size chaises. 5 king bedrooms plus large Kid Zone with 4 double beds and 4 single beds. We comfortably can sleep 24, your party had 19.

We have 3 fireplaces; the one you complained about was on the calendar for the first possible appointment. Rocky Mountain Hot Tub does our professional hot tub service. - ranked as #1 best in the county. Our hot tubs are cleaned before the arrival of each guest; and a phone call away during your visit.

Your quote that: "The kitchen is a very awkward lay out for serving meals to keep that in mind" is hard to answer. Well stocked, all equipment, counter and sit down kitchen table, doorway to magnificent windowed dining room, has made many families very happy.

The security deposit is just a bit more complicated, because: First you wanted ccd to be charged; then you sent chks and wanted card reversed; then you became confused on security deposit and rent deposit. Here are some quotes from some of our 38 emails:

Request for status of security deposit: "Send back the check please. Your email states you charged my credit card but I remember something got screwed up and the balance was off by the same amount. You could get a duplicate response, having some issues with my handheld holding drafts"..Return, but the email stated that my ccd was charged. If you have a check for $750.00, then send it…. I remember something got messed up…I checked my checking account and you cashed the check so tearing it up or returning it is not an option. Please send back asap…my error. 2 checks cut for $750.00 so please send back the #1252 dated 10-23 and we should be good.

I hope this clears up any misconceptions. We only want you, and all of our guests to enjoy our beautiful homes.
Regards
Jan

Great Stay!

We had a wonderful experince at Timber Creek. The house is amazing and the location is great. If you're looking for a large house in a good location then this is the house for you. The house is very well stocked and our large group was very comfortable. The owners were great to work with during the whole process all the way from the booking through the end of our stay! We will definitely be back.

Just a note to let you know how much we enjoyed our recent stay. Your home was perfect for our family reunion of 27 people and four babies. Wonderful location. Easy access to trails, fishing, and town.
Thanks so much.
Sincerely,
Larry
