Overview

Winter Park Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Located just one block from the base of Winter Park Ski Resort, our tri-level unit offers not only a superb location but incredible ski slope views. Portal Place is one-of-a-kind.

Located inside the gated section of the ski base, this townhome offers luxurious privacy as one of only two units in the duplex. It is on the Fraser River and all windows and decks face the river and the ski slopes.

Portal Place is an ideal retreat for two couples. On the upper level, there are two master suites, each with full bath, Jacuzzi tubs, cable TV, and telephone. One suite has a king bed and one has a queen. There is also a washer/dryer on this level.

On the main level, there is a comfortable living area with a wood burning fireplace, leather sofa-sleeper, gourmet kitchen, dining room, and half bath. The lower level is an entryway with ski storage and 2 carport stalls. Portal Place is a non-smoking unit. Wireless internet is complimentary.

Our unit is very tastefully decorated. All of our guests that have stayed comment on how beautiful the unit is and how it has such wonderful views. An independent rating service placed our unit in the 'Gold' category which is their highest rating. We have recently added new carpeting, appliances and luxury bedding.

In the winter, it is perfect for a ski vacation. In the Summer, it is peaceful yet only steps from all the activities that Winter Park Mountain Resort has to offer.

About George Stevens

My wife and I have been visiting the Fraser Valley and Winter Park for more than 25 years and still find it one of the most beautiful areas anywhere. She loves the golfing and hiking in the summer months. With my Minnesota background, I can not get enough of winter and downhill skiing. We both feel very fortunate to be living in such a wonderful environment.

George Stevens purchased this townhome in 1993

Why George Stevens chose Winter Park Area

Portal Place is very convenient to the base area, yet quiet and private. The creek is always babbling and lends an extra dimension to being there.

Winter Park/ Mary Jane ski mountain is one of the great mountains anywhere. Every year I find new tree runs and always feel special skiing there.

What makes this townhome unique

There is nothing like tending the (real) wood burning fireplace while enjoying good company and a glass of wine. The radiant warmth of everything can be truly unique.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Madelyne,

It was lovely! Great location...wonderful home & set up perfectly with all the ammenities. You had everything -- linens, lots of blankets, fluffy towels, soap, tissues, all the kitchen necessaries and wood for the fireplace. We bought a new bottle of firestarter (and left it there of course) and had a nice warm romantic fire 2 of the nights. We loved it, thanks very much and will recommend it!

Loved the location

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our week at Portal Place. The location was great- we walked to the lodge/lift area everyday- lots of people watching. We also love being by the water. It was a quiet area. the wi-fi worked fine and had good cell service as my husband was working and vacationing. The kitchen was stocked okay with pans, dishes,etc. Appreciated the "Spices to share" left by prior renters. The townhouse also had trash bags, dish soap, laundry soap etc. so it was nice we didn't have to buy those items. We were one couple so plenty of room. but, two couples or family would appreciate that both bedrooms have their own bath and the 1/2 bath downstairs. We hope to have another trip to Portal Place next summer.

Awesome Views - Close to lifts

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Winter Park at Portal Place. It was very comfortable, had everything we needed, the views were stunning and the walk to the slopes was so convenient! We really enjoyed the warmth of the fire while watching the beautiful snow fall outside. Thanks!

pretty ideal

Great location for skiers. Everything we hoped for regarding comfort and amenities, AND pet friendly. We cooked two full dinners using the nicely equipped kitchen. Lovely little river right below to listen to at night. Charming!

Convenient and comfortable. Great experience overall.

Liked the real fireplace. The heating wasn't working that well initially but the owner brought a space heater that warned up the main floor nicely. Short walk to the lift so no shuttle required.

The house and the location was fantastic. The view of the slopes was exquisite! We loved watching the skiers coming down the hills and listening to the babbling creek. The real wood burning fireplace was enjoyed by all!

Perfect skiing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, clean attractive and cozy condo, sleeps 4 comfortably in two nice bedrooms with private baths, but we had two more for the weekend in the pullout couch in the livingroom and it was fine. Nice fireplace. Easy to get to the slopes. Nice to have a washer and dryer although the washer start button was a bit finicky. Generally perfect for a ski vacation or weekend getaway just to relax and kick back. We would rent it again.
