Sleeping Arrangements: The bedrooms are named after Colorado wildflowers from the days when it began as a Bed & Breakfast, by the owner's Mother. MarDei's, comes from her name, Deidre and her childhood friend Martha, whom began the B&B in 1985. It was run as such on our arrival in 1994. After ownership shifted in 1999, we changed it to a Retreat in 2000.

Our group of family members were impressed with the location. We had plenty of comfortable beds and the tables accommodated all 14 of us for the Thanksgiving feast. The great room with the wide-screen television was an especially relaxing environment for us to visit, talk, play games and relax by the fireplace. We were most thankful for the wonderfully furnished kitchen, the free wi-fi, wood-burning stove, quiet neighborhood, clean water and air. Our family would likely stay again, or at least share the idea with other large families.
Being together as a family is our #1 priority. As always we had a good time. The house was clean, kitchen had everything needed for cooking, the front yard was a good gathering place, it was close to town, bike and hiking trails and there were enough beds for the 15 of us. The house is dated and in need of repairs. The carpets need to be replaced, floor tiles cracked, wallpaper and molding coming off, holes in walls and the windows on the main floor are sealed shut. There is no cross ventilation and it gets hot, especially in the bedroom on that level.
I would stay in Frisco again, but not at this property.
Accommodation description was pretty accurate. Place was clean and tidy.
Close to Frisco Main Street and shops/restaurants - centrally located for ski hills.
There were separate beds for 9 of us and could have handled another 2 (all mature singles, not couples).
But more adults might start getting crowded - especially in the compact kitchen area.
Overall, we were very pleased with the experience.
The MarDeis provided our family with a fun place to enjoy Frisco and the mountains. The hot tub was great. The beds were plentiful. A great place for fun.
I escorted a small group of fourteen here in December 2015 and we were very happy with the Mardei's Retreat. The house was large enough for our group but still had a nice atmosphere to it. The kitchen was well equipped and the large den was a nice place to relax after skiing. The bedrooms were a variety of configurations that accommodate any type of group. The hot tub was large, clean and very relaxing. Frisco’s main street is just a short walk away to restaurants, shops, and bars. The Mardei's Retreat is defiantly a good value for the money.
We have stayed in many properties in Frisco over the years as our family has grown, and this is one of the best. The house is spacious, comfortable and well-furnished. The living room furniture accommodates 9-10 people in comfort and the kitchen has every appliance you could want for cooking. The deck and the front yard are pleasant for sitting outside and the hot tub was popular with our group. The location is both quiet and convenient for walking to town. The owners are very responsive to any problems and do their best to accommodate their guests. We will surely be coming back again.
