I’m not a big one for pinning my hopes on scratch cards or life changing lottery wins, but there’s something about the HGTV Dream Home Giveaway that lures me in every year. Seriously, I’m going on 10 years of entering my email into that magic box every morning like a well trained puppy!
As with most Dream Home groupies, I enjoy losing myself in the fantasy world of what it would be like to live in such a home, in such an incredible location.
Well, now you can test out one of those fantasies, even if your name isn’t necessarily on the deed!
That’s right the 2007 HGTV Dream Home, based in none other than Winter Park, is now part of our luxury home rental program and available to rent this winter.
Located in the exclusive, gated community of Bridger’s Cache, Mary Jane’s Dream Home is one of only a handful of properties snuggled into the woodland below the slopes of Mary Jane at Winter Park Resort.
An alluring blend of rustic mountain architecture and unique and charming interior design, Mary Jane’s Dream Home certainly lives up to its coveted title; but what really stands out about this home, is its innate livability and warmth.
Upon entering the home, you’ll be in awe of the grand beam construction throughout the home, yet find yourself immediately at ease and immersed in the warm hues and plush, welcoming décor.
As you explore the home, you’ll find yourself unable to stop yourself from sinking into an inviting sofa, or doing a quick Goldilocks mattress-bounce on a bed or two along the way. As the kids charge through the lower level, claiming their bunk and reveling in having their very own movie den and wet bar, you’ll no doubt find each of your adult guests on one of the many private balconies, gazing out at the breathtaking surroundings and breathing in the fresh mountain air.
With multiple lounging areas and four sumptuous bedrooms to relax in, there are plenty of little hideaways when you need some downtime, but vacationing with friends and family is all about sharing experiences, and the social center of Mary Jane’s Dream Home has to be the fabulous main level.
Complete with a cozy lounge with fireplace and huge picture window framing the winter wonderland outside, super cool kitchen (with ample room for multiple chefs!) and large dining table to gather and enjoy a home cooked feast, when it’s time to bring everyone together, Mary Jane’s Dream Home delivers.
Ah yes, skiing. I was so wrapped up in the delights of this home in itself, I almost forgot about the world-class skiing on the doorstep….almost.
Winter Park Resort is a front runner in Colorado’s ski resort rankings, with 3000+ acres of skiing terrain that can both challenge the most experienced skier, and stir up a new found passion in a first timer. Perfect for families and groups of mixed abilities, Winter Park Resort splits its area into seven distinct territories, click here to check out our latest guide to the Seven Territories Of Winter Park Resort.
Mary Jane’s Dream Home sits below the slopes of Mary Jane Territory – the local’s favorite, and home to the best bump skiing in North America. A one minute car ride will get you to the Mary Jane Base Area lifts, or hop on the Corridor Trail (100 yard walk) and buzz your way down to the main base area of Winter Park, with Ski School access and ‘Parkside’ lifts.
