About Barb Arne

Family of 5, love to ski, children are also snowboarders. Our summer activities at Winter Park include hiking, biking, alpine slides and photography.

Barb Arne purchased this condo in 2005

Why Barb Arne chose Winter Park Area

We are avid skiers and snowboarders who love the Mary Jane/Winter Park area. We were fortunate to purchase the best location 2 bedroom(closest unit to the ski bridge) in the Iron Horse Condo complex. The 2 bedrooms plus Murphy bed and a sofa sleeper, along with 2 baths, are perfect for our family of 5 with room as well for friends. In addition, Iron Horse provides owners and guests with an indoor/outdoor pool, hot tubs, exercise room, on-site restaurant and ski shop.

What makes this condo unique

We appreciate the convenience of skiing to our condo for lunch, avoiding crowds/costs associated with on mountain restaurants. Unique to our unit is the location next to the ski access bridge, eliminating the need to take elevators/stairs to other floors and/or walking to other buildings in the Iron Horse complex. We enjoy the morning sunshine on the patio and breathtaking views of the Continental Divide and enormous pine trees outside our unit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Barb and family,

We had a terrific stay at Iron Horse 5094. The condo met our every need - we so appreciated all the thoughtful touches - emails with money saving tips, the "welcome bag" of chocolates, the TV's with good operating instructions, the games, shampoo in showers, full-equipped kitchen, and even the sled which my 9 year old son used daily and loved. We had lots of snow while we were here and the skiing was great.

Thank you for all you have done to make your condo so comfortable for us - treating strangers like family speaks well of you and your family.

The property is just as advertised! Spacious and nice!

  • 5 of 5

The owner of the property was the nicest most helpful person. She was always available and quick to answer any and all questions I had. She was a joy to work with and I highly recommend this property not only for the location but also because of the wonderful owner! We would definitely stay at this condo again and again!

Great Unit - Very Convenient

  • 5 of 5

A well maintained unit with unbeatable access. Being right next to the ski access bridge was excellent and minimized the amount of walking in ski boots. I was somewhat worried about noise, but that turned out to be minimal and only in the middle of the day. Having stayed at Iron Horse in the past, I was aware of the room layouts. This unit had everything in great working order, was comfortable and had no hassles.

On-site ski rentals are a huge plus as well as being able to get to the pool/hottub area without going outside. Also being the first bus stop after leaving the winter park base is a huge plus for those who can't traverse the blue+ slopes of Mary Jane and use the "ski-in" feature.

Wonderful Stay at the Iron Horse Resort

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th time visiting Winter Park Resort but our first staying at the Iron Horse. The condo is perfectly situated as it is the closest one to the bridge leading to the slopes. The hallways were nice and warm which made it really great on especially cold days. The condo itself had everything we needed...except a crock pot for cooking our meals while skiing. Fortunately, Ace hardware in Winter Park sells them, and now the condo has one for its future guests to enjoy ;-). The views are amazing from every window and the balcony. The condo is comfortable and met all of our needs. One couple used the Murphy bed and reported that it was very comfortable.

Barb was very helpful and extremely accommodating on our arrival day by cutting her family's vacation a day short so we could gain access to the condo early. A BIG thank you! If you do not have your own ski equipment, I recommend the shop on site. We tried to save a little money and went to Skis4Less at the Winter Park Mountain Lodge. However, they were dishonest and did not honor their price quote (we expected to pay $550 plus helmet rental fees and ended up paying $800 for upgraded skis that we didn't want nor ask for) for our party of six people. We ended up paying more than if we had just stuck with the Iron Horse. Lesson learned.

One slight disappointment (which is completely our of Barb's control) is the closing of the on-sight restaurant at Iron Horse. We had planned on eating there at least one night because of its convenience. Hopefully, Iron Horse will get someone in that space soon. There are lots of other places that are nice and nearby. We ate at Strip & Tail in Winter Park on New Year's Eve. Got a close up look at the fire works while we ate. It was a lot of fun. Food was OK.

We utilized the hot tub every evening which was so nice and warm...a little crowded between 4-6 PM but we didn't care because we got to meet some interesting people and hear about their skiing adventures.

Finally, a must do is the Fraser tubing hill. We took the crew one evening and had an absolute blast! I highly recommend this for some great family fun.

Winter Park is an excellent ski area for people of all ability levels. The skiing was wonderful and the weather couldn't have been better. We will certainly be back and would love to stay in this condo again!

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed our condo. The restaurant just informed the management last week, they would not be able to open for this season. Hopefully this will change for nextg season. There should have been a crock pot in condo, things do get moved around and last time I saw it was under the sink, there may be 2 now! I hope you will rent again next trip to Winter Park. Barb

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time with our girls and their boyfriends. The weather was wonderful with lots of snow and the mountain conditions were perfect for skiing and snowboarding. Cannot wait to come back again. Also our accommodations were awesome especially being so close to the exit to ski out. Thanks for letting us make some wonderful memories.

Wonderful!!! Absolutely terrific place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful retreat!!! Our family has been raving about it since we returned home. My kiddos LOVED the pool! It was always so nice and warm, a good size and was terrific for my children. It is does get pretty deep pretty fast so it might not be great for those with real little ones but for my children it was fantastic. Even on rainy days we made good use of the pool. Who cares if it's raining when you're already wet right??? :)

The condo was spacious and well maintained. It had very comfortable beds....even the sleeper sofa. The kitchen worked well for our needs and it was nice to have a table that all six of us could sit around to have a nice family dinner. The location worked well for us in being able to go explore Rocky Mountain National Park at times but also had things to do in and around Winter Park. We found the activities in the village a little pricey but my kids loved playing the giant 4 in a Row, Checkers and Scrabble games that were located in down in the village. Hernandos Pizza in Winter Park was a fav of ours as well. Overall, a wonderful condo in a great resort. We definitely would like to return sometime in the not too distant future. Thanks Barb and family!
