Wonderful Location, Excellent Stay in the Rockies...
Family and I just spent the Thanksgiving Day Week at this property and we had an awesome time. Plenty of room for our large family and the property well stocked with all the amenities. After putting the Turkey in the oven we wondered if there was a Turkey baster. Sure enough to our surprise, we openned a drawer and there is was. There were 9 of us, and this home was completely stocked.
We loved waking up every morning to see skiers coming down the mountain. The view of Winter Park Resort Mountain slopes were wonderful. It was a great view sitting in the hot tub. Weather was perfect, 56 degrees in Denver and 25 degress in Winter Park. The photo's correctly represent this property. Everything was exactly as we expected upon arrival.
This property is directly across from the resort and were pleased with having several lifts and slopes available so early in the year. Trails were in great shape.
The location is also convienant to Fraser, Co just a few miles (3) to the North where we found Bowling and a Movie theater, as well as a smaller township tubing slope (Free). There was also a host of small shops for those who enjoy shopping. The supermarket Safeway is also located in Fraser and is well stocked. Hernando's Pizza and Pub is also a MUST DO!
A few tips might include ski rental discounts...."Ski 4 Less" located one block South on Rt 40 offered good discounts and awesome customer service. They also have a coupon book (E-book) for $10 which hosts a wide variety of discounts. It had 3x $20 (Adult) off and 3x $10 (Child) lift discounts which we were excited about, as well as a ton of other specials.
For the more adventerous types, we drove 15 Miles south to Berthoud Pass for more 'free' sledding and the most wonderful views of the mountain at 10k feet. There were also Free style snow boarders, skiers and hikers.
The Rocky Mountains are a natural wonder not to be missed. Our property hostess Betsy was responsive and informative about the area around Winter Park. Just wanted to afford anyone else seeking a nice vacation spot to get a first hand snapshot of this wonderful property. We found this on VRBO.COMSee More
