Hi! I'm an overplanner and am looking for a vacation home to rent for a week during spring break 2019. We yearn for a cabin in the woods feel with modern perks like cable and internet. My husband doesn't want to stay in a place that is connected to other people, like a condo. We plan to ski one or two days and would also like to go sledding and tubing. We have 3 kids under 10, so we can't be too far out that there is nothing for them to do.
I've been looking into Grand Lake, and it is so gorgeous! Would it be too far off the path to make trips to Granby and Winter Park for skiing and sledding? Is it an easy drive from Grand Lake to Winter Park, or treacherous? We're Texans! ;) Would my kids be terribly bored? Restaurants and night life aren't important factors, as I'll be cooking most of the meals.
Are there other places I should be looking at? In my price range, I'm having trouble finding places in Granby or Winter Park that fit the bill.
Would really appreicate any suggestions or advice!
