Overview

About the property

1BR, 1 BA (Sleeps 2-6)

Our condominium has one bedroom and one bath. It is a ski in and ski out resort. If you don’t feel like skiing down to the base, Iron Horse offers a free shuttle. The unit sleeps up to six with a king bed, a new queen sleeper sofa with memory foam mattress and a queen Murphy bed. We are one of the only units with a new king size bed in the back room. We are on the first floor with easy access to the workout facilities, the pool, the hot tubs and saunas. Our condominium is among the nicest and best equipped one bedroom units at the Iron Horse Resort.

When you are not out enjoying winter park, the condo has a flat screen television which you can watch a DVD, on demand, or the many channels provided including HBO. For a quieter evening you can curl up by the electric fireplace or sit on the patio and admire the view. The kitchen and the bathroom were remodeled last year with granted countertops and fixtures. There is also free wireless internet access in the condo. We try to price rentals of our unit well below the resort's standard rate. This allows you to benefit by renting directly from the owner.

About Christine

My family has owned this property since 1984. We have always had Iron Horse rent out the condo for us, but last year we wanted to rent it ourselves. As a family, we really enjoy skiing and spending time in front of the fireplace playing games. In the summer we enjoy the activities, music and a chance to relax. The condo has become a staple in our family and we are happy to share it with others. We hope that your family can walk away with many memories to share for years to come.

Christine purchased this condo in 1984

Why Christine chose Winter Park

My Dad has always been an avid skier. He fell in love with Winter Park and wanted a place of his own. My parents soon after bought the condo and the rest is history!

What makes this condo unique

One of the reasons we love Iron Horse is for the ski in and ski out access to the slopes. It has saved our family money to be able to come to the condo warm up and grab some lunch. With the younger children we also have access to the shuttle and that helps get the kids to the slopes. It has been nice having the rental shop on sight to help visitors get the equipment they need without worrying about transporting it. We also love the access to all the facilities Iron Horse has to offer. The summer has offered us many memories as well. The pool, trails, and quick trips to town have kept our family happy and coming back for more each year.

Great location but needs some updating

  • 3 of 5

The ski in/ski out of iron horse was amazing. The pool, hot tub and game room were also great. The condo was comfortable as was the bed. It was a little squished with the Murphy bed and fold out couch in use. The owner was great - easy to get in touch with, very responsive. But the place needs a little updating. The carpets are pretty worn, kitchen wasn't really stocked. Just little things like that.

A lot of good and some not-so-good

  • 3 of 5

Positives first.

- It was our first time staying at a true ski-in / ski-out location and it was wonderful! Being able to finish our day on a run that dropped us right at the condo building was great and being able to jump on that same run to get to the base was equally great. The locker rooms close to that run were also wonderful so we didn't have to carry gear back and forth from the room.

- This room is first floor building C which is the building that has all of the amenities (pool, hot tub, fitness center, locker room, front desk, business center, etc.). Being able to go from our room to the pool in less than 2 minutes was very appreciated at the end of a long day of skiing.

- The kitchen worked perfectly for us (we're a grocery buying group so we used it for almost all of our meals).

- The murphy bed and king bed were both quite comfortable.

- The price was not the cheapest we found but still a good deal.

Time for the negatives.

- The thing that upset us the most is the pull-out bed. I was very close to calling the owner to complain about false advertising and ask for some of our money back. It's listed as a three-bed condo HOWEVER you can't use the murphy bed and sofa bed at the same time!!! We pulled out the sofa bed and it hit the fireplace - just plain wouldn't work. We were a group of three adult males and two of us had to share a bed. That was not what we planned on - we specifically booked this place so we could each have a bed. In addition to just not being able to fit, that is one of if not the worst sofa beds I've ever seen (and I've seen quite a few during my travels). I don't know if you could even call that two-inch thick, every spring clearly visible thing a mattress. Oh, and it was pretty awful as a couch as well. One big seat cushion that wouldn't even stay on the couch.

- The deck hadn't been touched all winter. We were excited about being able to walk out in the morning and look at the mountain with a cup of coffee in hand but were unable to do that due to the mountain of snow on the deck.

- Along those lines, we were also excited to utilize the grill which was BURIED under the snow. We actually dug it out only to find that it was broken (ignition line had been snapped).

- The toilet runs. A simple fix that needs to happen.

- The tub drain needs some addressing (Drano anyone?).

All in all a good stay and some great skiing. Just hope some of these issues get fixed by the owners.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry to hear about your disappointment. We have addressed all the issues listed. Including getting a brand new-memory foam pull out sofa! We have made sure that future guest and easily access the pull out couch and Murphy bed at the same time. Thank you for letting us know, so we could take care of the problems.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My two sons and I stayed for an extended weekend and it was perfect! It was beautiful, clean, and plenty of room for the three of us. We cooked some easy meals in the kitchen and found everything we needed. The beds were extremely comfortable and made it a little bit hard to get up in the morning because we were so warm and cozy inside & the snow was so high outside. My 16-year-old son's favorite thing to is check out is the water pressure in the shower, and he was delighted that it was strong and gave it two thumbs up. This was our fourth stay at the Iron Horse Resort, but the first time in this condo, and I felt like this condo was very reasonably priced. It was perfect for us- we will book it for our next vacation.

New Years Ski week

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at the condo. We are a family of four, 2 daughters 7 &10. The condo was clean, big enough and had a most comfortable bed. The location was excellent, covered parking, ski-in ski-out, ski shop and restaurant just made everything simple. The owners were great to deal with. Highly recommended.
