Ultimate Ski in/ski out Slopeside Mountain View
You are welcome to share our convenient, family-owned condo at the base of the mountain just seconds from the Zephyr Chair Lift. It’s only moments from picking up your skis in the locker room, walking out the back door past the hot tubs, locking on your skis and a three second ski down the access slope to the chair lift. None of the hassle of tromping on and off buses with your skis, poles and boots, your significant other’s skis, boots and poles, kids’ skis boots and poles, slogging and slipping through parking lots, wondering when or if you’re ever going to get to the lift. It is truly “the way you dreamed it would be someday”. It is ski luxury!! Exactly what is needed for a ski vacation.
If you want to avoid the fast food menus at the crowded ski lodges, just ski down the slopes and ease into your condo. Enjoy lunch on your fourth floor balcony with live entertainment as you watch the skiers come down Hughes. It’s convenient, private and features all the amenities of home. The kitchen is stocked with basic food prep items, the beds are upgraded with luxury linens and the towels in the bath are super plush.
Enjoy the added convenience of underground parking along with free shuttle service to the town of Winter Park or the shopping center in Frasier.
We hope to be of service to you in your quest for the ultimate ski vacation at the Baker Family condo.

Winter Park has great skiing but the Zephyr Lodge complex is looking dated and worn. Still a great family vacation spot.
We just spent 4 nights here in early January. The condo was nice, clean, well stocked and a perfect location. I loved the gas fireplace that came on/off with the flip of a switch. The condo overlooks the bottom of the Corridor run and you can see the Zephyr lift too. The bed was comfortable; my only criticism would be the pillows--they were way too hard for all of us. Bring your own pillow and you won't be able to beat this condo and location. A couple of small suggestions for improvement: the departure instructions indicated that the dishwasher had to be loaded/run, all trash removed and all linens, towels and bedding needed to be placed in the bathtub. I'd suggest that for the effort involved, it would be better to have the maid service strip the beds--as a guest, I never want to have to see the raw mattress and pillows in a rental property. yuck. We also would have liked to know that there was recycling at the property--we didn't separate our trash, and only when we took it out upon departure did we see there were recycling bins.
We stayed in this condo last year and are planning to stay again next year. Need I say more?
Everything you read in the reviews is true - clean, well-maintained, nice towels/linens, snack basket, etc. There are two Zephyr Mountain Lodge buildings and only the Slopeside building is truly ski-in/ski-out. Just two floors down is the ski locker room, then out the door past the hot tubs and you're on the snow. The best part about that is no lugging skis across the village, no waiting for shuttles and no wondering where you're even going to park.
Bruce is great to work with too - he's always very responsive and helpful.
I chose this condo based on the reviews I read here at HomeAway and they weren't wrong. What I didn't know was that most of the condos in the building are managed by Winter Park Resort, but beause the owner bypasses this, we enjoyed the same condo as others in the building at a much better rate. The condo was just as good as described in the ad and reviews.
My son slept on the pullout and it must have been comfortable because I couldn't get him up in the morning. There were plenty of pillows, towels, and blankets for everyone. There were even enough racks in the bathroom to hang all the towels after showers. The owner also provided extra towels for the hot tub. In a condo, I always worry about having to buy things that are provided by hotels, but there was name brand soap, shampoo, conditioner, and shave gel in the bathroom, condiments in the kitchen, and a thoughtful basket with snacks to hold us until we could get to the grocery store.
Not only was the unit well maintained, but there were extra nice touches like a bench, shelf, and hooks by the door for us to sit and take off boots and store our ski clothes. Of course, our ski equipment was conveniently stored either at the ski shop on the first floor or the private lockers.
The owner sent us several emails with information on the mountain, resort, trails, local discounts, restaurant recommendations, etc. He was really easy to work with, even when I forgot to send the second payment - just sent me a friendly reminder so I could submit it with the final payment.
If you've ever been to Winter Park, you know ski-in, ski-out condos are rare. This is one of those rare exceptions. The rental shop was on the first floor the building and we just walked out the back door to the base of the resort. We were even able to go back to the condo for lunch and then go back out to ski. It was really nice to not have to catch the shuttle bus you have to use if you're staying almost anywhere else in Winter Park and have the freedom to come and go as we pleased.
Whether you're a beginner or expert skier/snowboarder, Winter Park is one of, if not the best place to go. Don't let the scarcity of ski-in, ski-out places to stay keep you away. This condo is all you need.
We were fortunate to find this condo a week before our trip. From the first time we spoke with Bruce until we left Winter Park, our experience was wonderful. The condo was exactly as advertised, and the location was exceptional, this is truly a ski-out, ski-in location, and all the amenities you need are close by. You can park your car and forget about it! The detailed instructions, tips and tricks that Bruce provided prior to our trip were all right on the money and very helpful. The condo was exactly the right size, a kitchen, cozy living room with a fire place, balcony, bedroom and bathroom. All you need for up to four people. We had fantastic weather while we were there, making for excellent spring skiing. The ski trails were perfect for our group with challenges for those who wanted them to gentle slopes for the beginners. We found the resort to be very family friendly, and will be back to Winter Park, and Bruce's condo.
We had a wonderful experience working with Bruce. He had detailed instructions about the complex, getting keys, etc... The condo was clean and well organized with all the necessary cooking supplies. You can ski out of the building as advertised. The free shuttle service offered by the complex is fantastic. It took us to the grocery store, restaurants, shopping, cross country ski trails, etc.... I recommend checking it out!
