Chalet, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 12 Sleeps
About Ryan Reichenbach
After staying in the Winter Park/Fraser area many times, renting condos and houses, we decided we wanted a place of our own that would fit our family of 6 along with another small family.
Ryan Reichenbach purchased this Chalet in 2003
Why Ryan Reichenbach chose Fraser
We love the location in Fraser above the Safeway and on the bus route. This location allows us to catch the bus to the ski area right at the end of the driveway. We built the house to match what we consider to be a traditional ski chalet, with high vaulted wood ceilings, wood burning stove, great room, three bedrooms (one with bunks), and a small deck out back with a hot tub.
What makes this Chalet unique
Private hot tub, ski bus picks up at the end of the drive on the corner. Great for two families to spend a ski weekend together.

Family Christmas in January
Our family comes to the Winter Park/Fraser area each January to celebrate late Christmas with our son and daughter-in-law who live in Tabernash and work at the resort. We have rented several different properties in the area over the years and Sunset Chalet ranks highly among my favorites. This is a true family home in every aspect. Due to the size of our expanding family, we cook. Everyone has plenty of room in the open kitchen/living area to help prep while watching the game on tv, and the local Safeway is conveniently down the hill. The view from the main living area is breathtaking and there is now a grill on the patio area (not pictured). The garage easily houses two vehicles with room for two more outside. There are ample bed arrangements for each type of group. We always bring the family fur babies, and I was delighted to find a "doggie door" conveniently located in the kitchen, leading to an enclosed area for the dogs to do their duties and roam without fear of wandering off. The only drawback is the stairs, but this has been a given in every property we have rented. Sunset Chalet is conveniently located between Winter Park Resort and Tabernash for those who love mountain sports, fly fishing, you name it. We all loved this home and will definitely consider renting again in the future.
Thank you so much for the wonderful and thorough review. Wouldn't life be much easier without stairs? If only property in Colorado were cheap every house would be a sprawling one level mansion. :-) Glad you enjoyed your stay.
Great house for family vacation and skiing
Great visit with family! Well stocked kitchen!
Thanks for the positive review Pam. Glad you enjoyed your stay and that the kitchen worked well for you during you Christmas vacation.
Christmas in the cabin
It’s a great cabin with a good view! The ease of getting into town on the bus makes it even better. We really enjoyed our stay!
Thanks for the nice review Jessica. I'm glad the house worked out for you. I agree, being on the bus route is a nice bonus for getting to the mountain or just around town.
Excellent communicator and very great owners
An excellent stay in Fraser at Ryan’s property. House was warm and inviting and the perfect location for our after Thanksgiving weekend. I really appreciated Ryan’s communication and he made us feel right at home! We hope to go back soon!!
Thanks for the positive review Karin. I'm so glad you were able to make it through the storm and enjoy the Thanksgiving weekend.
What a great place
Everything was wonderful - we even had a snow on Christmas Day!!!
So glad you had a good time and a merry Christmas.
Excellent mountain retreat!
This place was the perfect home for our Spring Break. We had two families with children and there was plenty of room. The hot tub was amazing, the ski shuttle picks up out front, the views were great.... all in all a fantastic stay. Ryan was the consummate host, with an excellent response time and a great attention to detail. In short, we wanted for nothing and will definitely look to book this place again.
Thanks for the excellent review Michael. Glad you enjoyed your stay and that the house was the right fit for your group.
