A beautiful home base

  • 5 of 5

I was among several families who spent the weekend at the Penthouse to enjoy each other's company and take in some world class skiing at Mary Jane. The penthouse was the perfect space for 17 of us. The views were gorgeous, and the penthouse provided everything we needed. Winter Park and Mary Jane are just up the highway 2-3 miles away. I strongly recommend.

Big property, great for multiple families!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 5 couples all with young children, and this property met our needs perfectly! We were in Winter Park over the summer so getting to the mountain wasn't a concern, but the property was close to downtown and only a five minute drive to the ski area. The bedrooms are large, perfect for pack and plays if needed. You can tell the owners actually live there part of the year as the kitchen was well stocked with things that are sometimes a rarity in rental properties. The owners were quick to respond to all my questions and help ensure this was the best space for our group. All in all a great experience!

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed our condo and we will welcome you back anytime. Yes, we use the condo ourselves and try to keep it well stocked. Our cleaning crew is wonderful and do a great job to get it ready for visitors. And Winter Park is great fun year round. Thank you for your review.

Perfect for a Reunion

  • 4 of 5

The condo is HUGE - plenty of gathering room for our 25 person reunion and comfy sleeping accommodations for the 14 people that stayed there. The place is beautifully kept, conveniently located and has gorgeous views! We will definitely recommend to others.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed your weekend at our condo. It is excellent for many handicapped folks, with an elevator to bring you upstairs, large, wide spaces to get around inside, and a handicapped accessible bathroom. We like to rent to extended families who want to spend time together.

Fabulous condo with plenty of room

  • 5 of 5

We rented this Timber Run condo for a week in August 2016. Our 10-member family united there from Minnesota and Oregon. We enjoyed hiking, biking, rafting, horseback-riding and pontooning with plenty of eating, visiting, reading and relaxing in between.

There is plenty of comfortable room. We never felt like we were on top of each other yet we enjoyed the gigantic living/dining/kitchen area where we all could gather.

Our grandchildren (ages 12, 10, 5, and 3) LOVED playing hide-and-seek. They started out hiding the giant stuffed bear that the 3-year-old dubbed "Beary". Find Beary was a great way for the 4 cousins to safely play within sight/sound of their parents. Beary hid in the sauna and we got a great photo of all 4 as Beary was found. Hiding Beary progressed to hide-and-seek then sardines. What a great place for the kids to play, relax and rest. The bedrooms and neighborhood were quiet - except for the squeaky train that would go through down the hill at least once a day. Be aware that you might not be able to get to your desired location on time given the frequency of the often very long trains. However, the sound never disturbed our sleep nor our enjoyment of the condo.

Beds were comfortable. Great showers/bathrooms. Fully equipped. We ate most of our daily meals at the condo. The kitchen, while large, can get a bit crowded if more than 2 adults are preparing food. Tons of dishes and great to have staples like oil, seasonings, etc. available. The one suggestion we have - probably not possible - is to add an additional dishwasher. We had to run the dishwasher 2-3 times/day.

Loved the 3 decks with the stunning view off the main deck. The grill is large and easy to use.

We highly recommend this condo for your gathering. If we decide to head back to Winter Park for future family gatherings, we definitely would rent this again!

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed the condo and we hope you will come back in future years. I am afraid a second dishwasher is not in the plans, since the kitchen has no room for two dishwashers. When there are many people, it is impossible to do more than one meal at a time, since there are so many dishes. The good news is that there are plenty of dishes, glasses and cutlery to feed a large group! When our extended family is in the condo, we usually fill up the dishwasher and then hand wash the rest of the dishes. We added an extra bathroom upstairs just before Christmas, and that helps to keep the morning routines easy.

Beautiful scenery...warm and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Estelle, our stay was wonderful..our grandkids called it the mansion....we were comfortable and couldn't have asked for more. The Bear was a big success for the kids..and adults...we kept hiding it to scare each other. Thanks for sharing the unit for a great stay.
