It was a great place. Yes, it is old and may need some painting here and there, but in general it id very good. Lots of space. Thanks.
Our group (+/- 25 people) has been doing ski vacations for over 20 years and this has been the best location we have had so far. We were there to ski and snowboard at Winter Park and this place is perfect for that. It’s not luxurious and you don’t have full service anything, but it works really well for a group who are there to ski though not necessarily for your first trip to the mountain. Don’t stay here if you are looking for a “plush” or “fancy” or even new. That’s not this place. It is however functional and spacious on the order of a hunting camp.
As to the house, yes it is old and not everything works perfectly. The layout at times is maze like and it’s obvious that many modifications were done over time to add all the rooms and bathrooms. Overall the place is big and equipped for the larger groups. Most of the things in it are older (including the bedding) but functional all the same. The kitchen has two large commercial ovens, a commercial stove and large grill. The dining room is plenty big enough for everyone to eat and the view from the full wall of windows is very peaceful. If you have ever rented a condo for a group on a ski trip and were tripping over each other that is not this place. Lots of room to move around, but be prepared to deal with it being older and not in top condition. I won’t say dirty because most things were clean, but certainly well used. There were lots of towels and spare bedding to make sure everyone was comfortable although we did have to redo a few beds with proper linens.
When we arrived (11:30) the cleaning crew was still there and we were not allowed into the property until they were finished so we had everyone milling around trying to figure out what to do. In the parking area we found an electric company employee there issuing a notice that the power would be turned off in two days if the bill wasn't paid. Along with the power guy and the cleaning crew some people from the resort management company were trying to fix some lights that kept blowing fuses. We weren't allowed in the house until the cleaning crew finished. I contacted the management company and they got everything worked out and confirmed that the power would indeed remain on. The management company was easy to work with and helpful although I don’t like how they managed the cleaning. I don’t see why they waited until the day we arrived to start cleaning the house instead of doing it the day before.
Our large family of 21 stayed here over the New Year holiday and I must say that it did have enough room for us. Each of the 5 couples had their own room and bathroom and the kids had a large bunk room and there were some rooms to spare. The kitchen is small, but has a huge commercial griddle and that was fun to cook up some mighty fine breakfasts before hitting the slopes; the dining room and living area was roomy enough for us all to eat, be together, watch football, talk, play games and read. The ski equipment room at the entry level and the parking area was big enough for all our skis, boots and 5 cars. The convenience to the ski shuttle to get on the slopes was a short walk or drive; the ski-in trail was steep and a bit much for our green slope skiers, but everyone else faired OK. Unfortunately, everything else about this place was tough to bear, it's charm frankly left a long time ago. It is a dirty worn out house - grime under sinks, furniture and in the corners; hair in the bathroom drains, old worn soiled couches and scratched up chairs, junk in closets and the laundry area, rugs and carpet that are so thin and soiled they absolutely need replacing, the drapes in rooms are thick, old and on flimsy cheap rods; beds are squeaky; room thermostats temperamental; the "game room" is a misnomer with a cheap and wobbly foose ball table and the TV's are seriously in need of updating; the main one upstairs is a flat panel too small for a large group to view and poor resolution, the downstairs one is small and old. All in all this place needs a serious updating, deep cleaning and de-cluttering; the old furniture and carpets replaced, TVs updated. This place as is would be appropriate only for the travelers willing to compromise in exchange for a cheaper price if the price was dropped by 40-50% to even be considered a fair deal.
Our complaints to the management were limited to a few cleaning requests for little else could have been corrected during our stay. We chose instead just to enjoy each others company.
