"We took 2 adults and 3 kids (ages 15, 17, and 8) to Grand Timber Lodge at Breckenridge the week after New Year's 2015. It was great renting from Jayme - she was extremely friendly, responsive, and made the entire transaction easy. Checking in/out was painless, as was paying, etc.
GTL is a great place for families - It is not the newest resort at Breckenridge, but the location is excellent with an easy ski/walk to the Beaver Run chair (or take the Shuttle, like we did most days), and just far enough from the main Peak 8 Village to not be too loud and congested. One of the absolute best amenities is the free shuttle that will take you anywhere around the Breck Village. Need to go to the grocery store? Take the shuttle. Want to be dropped off right at the Peak 8 ski lift? Take the shuttle. Want to head downtown and have a few drinks and not have to worry about driving back in the snow? Take the shuttle! It was never more than a few minutes wait and the shuttle drivers were great! The next best thing about GTL is that all of their employees are extremely nice and helpful. They never said "No" to anything and went out of their way to be accommodative to any/all of our needs. Next, the pool and hot tubs were great! Adults and kids swam every day and it never felt crowded. The room and all of the facilities were always clean, never had any strange smells, etc. The room that we stayed in was very nice. Like I said before, it doesn't feel brand new - but the TVs are all flat-screen, the countertops were granite, the master room had a HUGE jetted tub plus a shower with dual shower heads and had been updated nicely. The room also had plenty of cookware, utensils, dishes, etc. The only area that we could complain about was that the wi-fi wasn't very good - it kept dropping and was generally slow. This wasn't too big of a deal, since we were on vacation, but a place like this should have better wi-fi. Overall, we had a great vacation and I would highly recommend Jayme and GTL to other travelers."
