Photos and Description of this Fraser holiday cabin

Cabin, 4 Bedrs, 4 Baths, 7 beds(Sleeps 2-10), Gourmet Kitchen, Stone fireplace

Beautiful log cabin nestled in the woods with dramatic views of Continental Divide (four-wheel drive a must in the winter). Private deck with large hot tub and gas grill. You'll marvel at the warmth your family/group feels around the river stone fireplace. Fourteen people can crowd around the handcrafted wood dining room table playing games while the cooks listen in from the gourmet kitchen. Every inch of this cabin was crafted by top rated finish carpenters. You'll marvel at the unique touches throughout. Each bathroom has its own Kohler fixtures (like a two-person jetted tub and old fashioned claw foot one) creating a distinct environment. The most frequent comment we hear from guests, 'Your pictures don't do it justice.' All manner of mountain sports are nearby. We're walking distance from the Arapaho National Forest and just a short drive to Winter Park Ski Area. A perfect setting for romance (we've had many small weddings) or family reunions and group get-togethers.

About Steve and Sharon Torgerson

We built our beautiful log cabin in 1995. We have enjoyed the wonderful wooded national forest surrounding our home and the amazing ski resort in Winter Park

Steve and Sharon Torgerson purchased this cabin in 1995

Why Steve and Sharon Torgerson chose Winter Park Area

We build our log cabin in 1995. It is nestled near the Arapaho National Forest and close to the Winter Park/Mary Jane Ski Area. We love to ski and all the winter and summer sports that are abundant in our area.

What makes this cabin unique

The summer is also a great time to be in the mountains of Colorado. In addition to the great hiking and mountain biking we are close to the Rocky Mountain National Park. We are also around 70 miles from downtown Denver which offers many city delights.

Perfect view & cozy feel!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is like the perfect hidden gem with breathtaking views from every room and the coziest feel! I stayed with a group of friends for a week and it wasn't nearly long enough! It's far enough away from the nearest town to get that exclusive cabin in the woods feel but only a short drive into town to head in as often as you wanted... The guy who was managing the place was very kind and knowledgeable and respected our space and privacy. I would highly recommend this resort for any type of vacay!

I've been to Winter Park to ski, but the place has a special magic in the summer. Dancing Aspen has its own cultivated stretch of native wildflowers bordering the driveway, and the view from the deck on the other side stretches for miles of green hills and rambling clouds. The place is comfortable, quiet, and a great place to share with friends. I completed a writing project I had planned and hope to visit again soon.

The aspens really do dance!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was amazing! The owners were very accommodating and helpful. The view from the deck is a perfect combination of mountains in the distance, horses grazing in nearby fields, and beautiful aspen trees surrounding the cabin. The leaves are absolutely mesmerizing when the wind blows during the day, the sun set really is like something you would see in a sappy movie, and the stars are breath taking at night! The sky was so clear that we saw satellites streak across the sky from the deck jacuzzi. As if that weren't enough, the state park is near by for hiking and if you need anything you can make a quick run into town.

I really recommend this cabin and I hope I can come back soon! Enjoy your stay!

The IDEAL location for mountain stay

  • 5 of 5

We are long time lovers of Colorado and the spectacular Rockies. This destination IS the perfect get-away location near Denver for just about any activity that a person or group of people might desire: trout fishing, horseback riding, skiing, mountain hiking or biking, the charm of Fraser's hospitality, and so much more. We especially enjoyed the ambiance of the spacious back deck's view (and remember that hot tub!). The cabin, itself, can comfortably accommodate a large group of people, with private nooks for quiet time and large areas for cooking, dining or visiting. Our most recent two visits were for a summer writer's workshop. Consequently, we had an opportunity to visit with the owner and his son, both of whom are exceptional human beings This enhanced our visit and overall experience. This is a very welcoming and nurturing space, and we confidently recommend this location!

The Perfect Place near Winter Park

  • 5 of 5

My wife and family and friends have stayed here multiple times, and we'll be coming back. Close to world class skiing in the winter, and great for mountain biking and fishing in the summer. Spacious, clean, pristine and beautiful! Highly recommended for folks who want to have a terrific place to gather in the heart of the Rockies, secluded yet near to the best offerings Winter Park and Fraser have to offer. The skiing nearby is AAA+ and the mountain biking and fishing are the same. This is a homey, comfortable and easy place to hang out.

Huge Disappointment

  • 1 of 5

When we pulled up to the Dancing Aspen Cabin we were thrilled with the view. It quickly went down hill from there. Unbeknownst to us there was a man living in the basement (the owner's son Stevie) we told him right away that we were not comfortable with this situation. We were traveling with our teenage daughter and planned on some of her friends visiting during the day. We didn't want to leave them alone with a man in the house or around the house while we hiked and biked and additionally I had specifically chosen this location because another reviewer had said it was quite. I am in graduate school and needed to study. Stevie called his dad who owns the property and my husband explained the situation to him. Steve told us that he would send Stevie to a hotel at night but he would be there during the day working. There was evidence of this with his tools set up around the house. Again we told him we were not comfortable with this situation. This is the first we had heard of the house being occupied and a man working around the house (this is a secluded area) and we had booked and paid for the house three months ago. Had we known this we could have saved us both a lot of trouble because we wouldn't have paid to stay there. We were quite shaken, this was around six in the evening and we had been traveling all day. Luckily we were able to get the last two rooms at a hotel that evening, they were so very kind when they heard about our situation. We were able to regroup and find another home for rent that didn't have anyone living in it or working on it. The owner Steve refused to give us any of our money back stating that he could not recoup his losses for the weekend?? I should have paid more attention to the Disappointed review. Dealing with Steve was a reminder to me that all people are not honest or trustworthy. I would not recommend that people stay at the Dancing Aspen Cabin.

Owner's Response: Dear Regan, Please accept, again, my sincere apology. We try very hard, and are usually quite successful, to exceed our guest's expectations. Your request caught me off guard (more on this below) but in just the few minutes of speaking, to your apologetic husband, I had both of your concerns solved. 1) My son was happy to take a long weekend, on me, in Denver. 2) All he had to do was get his tools put away and take-off (I did request, because it was evening, that he come back the next day and finish up but that wasn't necessary and I told you so). Your husband told me, "I'm sorry. It is not your son. We had a bad experience last year when someone was arrested on a property where we were staying in Boulder." The only thing I couldn't fix was your previous experience. You caught me off guard because 1) My son is a fine fellow, studying botany in college. In that, he's like his brother who worked for us a couple of years then went back to school and is an Emergency Room physician in Placerville, CA (one of the reasons we built the lodge, over 20 years ago, was to give our children an opportunity to work in a beautiful area of the country). 2) He makes friends quickly, has a beautiful girlfriend and for the summer is living in an apartment totally separate, including the driveway, from the cabin. 3) Because our winters are long we do maintenance on the cabin in the summer. The porch he is building, on a shed near the woods, cannot be seen from the cabin and nothing was being done "around the house." 4) Our cabin is isolated but our neighbors, across the road, down the road, at the horse ranch below us and the Christian School across the valley, you passed as you drove in, all work for us on occasion. We only make it so it feels isolated. Our guests are in good hands without knowing it until something is needed. We also have caretakers during the winter and a cleaning crew. I mentioned, in my directions to the cabin, you would be greeted by a caretaker. If you would have told me then you didn't want a caretaker I could have had my son gone and my neighbor across the road (you cannot see the home but it is there), Tammy, greet you and see if you had needs. As the proprietor, I removed the obstacles for you to have a relaxing weekend. On that big concert weekend I could have rented the place out three more times but not at the last minute. You chose not to stay. Your husband felt bad you were beyond reason. So did I.
