Winter Park CO July 2013
This was the perfect base for our family to re-connect and enjoy the Winter Park area. The property was as presented on the VRBO sight. The owner was great to work with. Our needs were accommodated perfectly from the well appointed kitchen to the bedrooms and baths. Although the entire family was not able to attend as originally planned, we had 5 adults and 3 children (ranging in age from 4 to 10) and could have easily accommodated the other 3 adults and the additional 1 year old if they had been able to come. The location provides easy access to the ski area by either walking or driving (for us low landers, the drive back up the hill was easier than walking!) and you are right on the highway to go on in to Winter Park or up to Fraser. The Safeway store in Fraser is well stocked and you can easily prepare your own meals in the unit rather than eating out all of the time. The liquor store next to Safeway has a very nice wine selection. That being said, there are some excellent dining establishments in the Fraser Valley that should not be missed! Our favorites include breakfast at Carvers, lunch at Fontenots and dinner at Dino's.
We would definitely stay here again! If you have children, a day on the mountain is a must. We also enjoyed a day trip to Rocky Mountain National Park with some hiking and close encounters with elk and a moose! The entire family participated in the thrill of white water rafting on the Colorado River. When it was time to relax and unwind, the townhouse provided the perfect spot.
