Pole Creek Valley Offers Sweeping Views, Diverse Property Types, and Community Open Space in a Central and Easily-Accessed Location

Nestled in the valley along Pole Creek and Creeked Creek with ample open space and sweeping views of Winter Park Resort, Byers Beak, and the Continental Divide, Pole Creek Valley sits just outside of Tabernash - in the heart of it all but away from it all. Minutes from Fraser and a quick ten-minute drive to Granby, the Pole Creek Valley subdivision is centrally located, making it easy to take advantage of all the adventures Grand County has to offer.

The cozy and desirable neighborhood offers homebuyers a multitude of property types: single-family homes, townhomes, duplexes, and apartments all line the paved roads. And even with all the options and homesites, those mountain-living vibes are embedded into the community: acres of open space, welcoming neighbors, and the sound of creeks cascading through the property make a slower pace and appreciation for the natural surroundings the norm. 

Other neighborhoods derive their monikers from the eponymous Pole Creek: nearby Fairways at Pole Creek and Pole Creek Meadows sit along the tranquil stream and also boast easy access to award-winning Pole Creek Golf and the Fraser-to-Granby Trail system. But what sets Pole Creek Valley apart is its quick proximity to Highway 40, varied property types, and relative affordability. 


Minutes from downtown Tabernash (read: an easy bike ride to the Tabernash Tavern and a slightly more ambitious ride to Pole Creek's Bistro 28) and central access to downtown Winter Park (15 minutes), Winter Park Resort (20 minutes), Grand Lake and Rocky Mountain National Park (25 minutes), and all the golf you can soak in (Pole Creek Golf, Grand Elk Golf, Granby Ranch, and Grand Lake Golf), Pole Creek Valley offers easy access to it all. Hop on the Fraser-to-Granby trail from your place - whether mountain biking, cross-country skiing, or snowshoeing, being able to hop on a trail out your door in Pole Creek Valley is truly what (adventurous) dreams are made of! Or drive a quick 10 minutes to experience Fraser and Winter Park's 600 miles of world-class trails. Skiing, hiking, fishing, biking, and more are easily accessed from Pole Creek Valley's central location, making it easy to see why properties in the community don't stay on the market long! 

The main entrance to the neighborhood is on CR 5221 (Prairie Sage Road), the first right after downtown Tabernash when driving from Fraser, but you can also access CR 5221 off CR 5 (4 Bar 4 Road). 



This community of townhomes within Pole Creek Valley is made up of 56 half-duplex style townhomes from 2,000 to 2,500 square feet, each with a two-car garage. 


Coyote Creek sits closest to Highway 40 and is comprised of three phases. The first phase of townhomes sits along Pole Creek with three and four bedroom options, one and two-car garages, and two and three-level floor plans. 


The newest development in Pole Creek Valley is the second phase of Coyote Creek homes. The mountain-modern triplexes and duplexes with single-car attached garages offer finished basements and high-end finishes. You've likely seen them going up if you're driven past Pole Creek Valley recently. Currently, short-term rentals are not allowed at Vistas at Pole Creek. 


The third phase of Coyote Creek is still in development - preliminary plans (approved by the county) propose to add 70 studio apartment units to the community.  


Not in the market for a multi-family unit but like the location and price point of Pole Creek Valley? Single-family homes make up the majority of Pole Creek Valley and offer a variety of finishes, floor plans, and square footage. And a bonus for mountain living - all single-family homes in the neighborhood offer attached, two-car garages! 


The Pole Creek Valley Homeowners Association (PCVOA) is the umbrella association for the entirety of the Pole Creek Valley neighborhood, including single-family homes, Coyote Creek at Winter Park, and Lakeside at Pole Creek Townhome Association. Both Coyote Creek and Lakeside at Pole Creek also fall under HOAs specific to each development. 

Current HOA fees vary by location and are always subject to change:

  • Lakeside at Pole Creek: $98/month
  • Single-Family homes: $19/month
  • Coyote Creek at Winter Park: $98/month
  • Vistas at Pole Creek: $150/month

PCVOA manages the open space, which includes community trails, a pond for paddle boarding, a play structure, and a picnic area. All community members have access to the space. 

PCVOA allows short-term rentals; however, "sub" HOAs for the different developments may not. For example, Vistas at Pole Creek currently does not allow STRs. But there are plenty of other properties in Pole Creek Valley that have income potential!

The HOA regulations aim to keep the neighborhood well-maintained and aesthetically pleasing. Some regulations to that end ask homeowners to limit the parking of RVs, trailers, campers, boats, and equipment inside the structure or screened from view; keep trash cans to only be at the curb on pick-up day; and remove noxious weeds, dead brush, overgrowth, and trash. They also limit dogs, cats, or other pets to two per site and keep quiet hours from 10pm to 7am. 

Design regulations vary by development. Coyote Creek, Lakeside at Pole Creek, and the Vistas at Pole Creek all have predetermined styles and exterior finishes while single-family homes can range from traditional mountain architecture to mountain-modern designs. Reach out to learn more about the specific design regulations for each neighborhood within the subdivision!


High-speed internet, cable, electricity, and natural gas are all available in Pole Creek Valley. Homeowners contract with local vendors for trash removal, and free recycling is available at The Drop in Fraser and Country Ace Hardware in Granby.

Water and sewer services are provided by Tabernash Meadows Water & Sanitation, which is funded through mill levees, service fees, and the sale of water and sewer taps.  The District is governed by a Board of Directors elected by people who live in Pole Creek Valley or Old Town Tabernash. Currently, taxes for owners in the Tabernash Meadows tax district include an additional 48.33 mills to support the water and sewer services.

Roads throughout the subdivision are maintained by the county, included snow removal. 


It's our job to know the ins and outs of the HOA regulations, property taxes, current market values, and more. If living in Pole Creek Valley is on your radar, we'd love to answer any questions you have and get you set up with listing alerts so you can be the first to know when a PCV property hits the market!
