Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful house. We loved the roulette and the Wii(kids).We loved the big sledding hill & we also built a snowman. We were here for Mary Janes's birthday and had a fantastic view of the fireworks!

Thank You,

Perfect location, beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 14 people and it was a perfect location, we were 2 min from town, and 5 min to the ski slopes. Very clean and had all the accommodations needed for a comfortable stay. We plan to return yearly. Oh and the hot tub overlooking winter park at night is a very beautiful site! I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a luxurious get away in winter park co.

Perfect weekend rental for 40th birthday party

  • 5 of 5

We spent two nights celebrating two 40th birthdays. The house worked out better than I had hoped, and I had put a lot of time and energy in searching for the right place. It has a wow factor with the views, architecture, and furnishings, but without being too fancy so that you have to worry about kids touching anything. It was a great balance for adults and kids, the other floor with the bunks and the extra den kept the kids out of the main space most of the time. They had lots to explore and keep them occupied because there are closets and drawers just stuffed with all sorts of games, puzzles, and toys.

The owners did a great job of making the house feel like our home for the weekend, just very comfortable and fun. There are lots of sleeping options with pull-outs and fold away beds to accommodate any configuration of kids. We had 5 different families staying in the house and everyone felt like they had their own area they could get away to. The decks would open up the space even more in the warmer months. We had snow overnight and the views were spectacular, lots of great views from most of the bedrooms as well. The hot tub worked really well, heated up quickly and stayed a nice temperature the whole time. We really enjoyed the gas fireplaces, the one in the main room was especially impressive, could pass for a real fireplace and made the space extra cozy.

For our group we could not think of anything that wasn't perfect about our stay. We even joked about trying to find something to complain about in the review and the only thing we could come up with was that the tongs in the kitchen weren't that great. One thing to consider is if you have people that cannot manage stairs well then there is one bedroom that is down just a very short flight of stairs that might work well, but the rest of the rooms require more stairs as you go down levels. The level upstairs is up a full flight and the stairs are slippery in socks, so extra caution would be needed for children or elderly people up there.

This was the absolute perfect place for our event, great for keeping the kids entertained and out of the adults way, spectacular views, wonderful atmosphere, and excellent owners who made sure our stay was perfect even though it was only for two nights.

Book this place with the highest confidence, first rate experience, your family will remember it forever!

Thanks Linda and Woody, I'm sure we will be back again!

Beautiful home—comfortable yet elegant, roomy, perfect for our small wedding

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just got married at Skytop and had most of our guests stay in the home with us for the weekend. We had six couples stay in the house, plus their children, and it was very comfortable. We had our ceremony on the back deck overlooking the beautiful mountain peaks, and did photos outside as well as inside by the fireplace. Linda, the owner, was incredibly helpful and friendly, and we appreciated how easy she was to communicate with. What we enjoyed the most about Skytop was its charm for both adults and children—between the hot tub, game room, spacious kitchen and personal decks, there was space and activities for everyone, and we never felt cramped. We would book this place again in a heartbeat!

Weekend with a chipmunk!

  • 3 of 5

The house was spacious, very nicely furnished and well equipped. The view from the deck is marvelous! Our group had a great time over the weekend, partially because we viewed the presence of a chipmunk IN the house with a sense of humor. That said, when we arrived there were rodent droppings on 4 of the 5 levels of the house, which we cleaned up, but continued to run into during the weekend. Another down side to the house is that noise travels quite easily so the two lower bedrooms were the only ones where people slept quite well. Also, the smoke alarm started to chirp at 2:30 am in a high ceiling that couldn't be reached.

Owner's Response: I was very surprised to read your review after receiving your complimentary and humorous post stay email saying you and your friends had enjoyed a wonderful weekend at Skytop. A couple of responses:This is the first time in 13 years we have ever heard that the house is noisy. The chirping was from a low battery in a carbon monoxide detector, one of many in the home, that was in a wall outlet at floor level, easily replaced or dismantled. We pride ourselves that our home is maintained in first class shape for all our guests and employ the best maintenance crew in Winter Park. It seems a chipmunk must have slipped in and out unnoticed when the cleaning crew was preparing the house for you. They were working late into the evening to accommodate your requested early check in . When you emailed me upon your arrival to let me know you had found chipmunk droppings in the lower level family room but hadn't seen the chipmunk, I called to apologize for the inconvenience, but explained that the cleaning crew was not working that day and I was 1 1/2 hours away. After talking with you, it was my impression that you and your friends didn't mind spending a few minutes cleaning up the droppings. My husband and I visited the house shortly after your check out and found no evidence of any droppings. We have monitored it carefully since, and nothing else has been found. In your complementary post stay email you also asked for compensation for your time cleaning. We felt that a fair trade off for your clean-up effort was our extending to you, at your request and with no charge, a very early check in and a late check out, which changed our normal scheduling. We are truly sorry that you did not feel the same.

Spectacular views from a comfortable, cozy home!

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed by wine and a hand-written note from the owners, as well as the amazing views! This is a can’t-miss property to stay in! The house itself is very cozy and nicely decorated. The kitchen is also well-appointed.

We elected to sleep in the upstairs master bedroom, and at first wondered if the lack of window treatments would be a detriment to sleeping-in. After seeing the morning views from bed, we wouldn’t have changed a thing!

Such a nice place to stay, it was extremely difficult to leave!

Very highly recommended!
