About the property

Our Alpine Family Retreat Is A 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Split Level Unit, 1150 Sf.

Thank you for your interest in our Alpine family retreat located in Old Town Winter Park. Please feel free to email me with any questions or for booking information.

This updated 2 bedroom/2 bath unit has 2 balconies that overlook the spectacular runs of the Winter Park ski area. We have a full view of at least four 12,000' plus peaks. Winter Park place is located directly on the beautiful Fraser river, and is by far, one of the choicest locations around. We only recently acquired this unit, after looking in the Winter Park and Fraser area, and absolutely falling in love with this place. The trailhead for the Fraser River Trail is about 100 yards from our unit.

Our unit easily sleeps up to 7. The master bedroom on the second level has a brand new King size bed, and the second bedroom on the main level has a brand new double over queen bunk bed. Additionally, the living room has a queen size pull out sofa. The kitchen is updated, and features all of the comforts of home. Fully stocked, and including many condiments, all you really need to buy is food. We also provide a brand new gas grill available for use.

All of the furniture is new, or very near new. Also included on the main level is a washer/dryer, exterior ski locker. Flat screen tv's in all bedrooms, and in the living room, as well as a DVD player. The main level also has a thermostatically controlled fireplace, that not only provides the ambiance of a fire, but also heats the unit.

The master suite is fully updated, all furniture is new, as well as a completely updated bathroom with a shower. Also in the master bath is a 4 person jacuzzi/hot tub (for use during the winter only). In the master bedroom is a gas fireplace, which is very nice for falling asleep too.

The common area has a large, lightly used hot tub and sauna. If you have a lot of laundry, the common areas also has washers and dryers (in addition to the washer and dryer in the unit).

Directly across the street from the complex is the ski shuttle pickup, which rides you about 30 seconds to the base of the ski resort. You can also walk to the resort, should you choose. Their is also a ski rental shop that is directly adjacent to Winter Park Place.

We have just updated our unit, and now have the following:

Completely repainted/redecorated

All new TV's, including:

50' Smart TV in family room

46' Smart TV in master bedroom

32' flat screen TV in 2nd bedroom

All smart TV's are internet connected and can stream Netflix, Hulu, Amazon video, Pandora, etc…

In order to entertain the kids in the evening, we have provided a Nintendo Wii and assorted games.

The Town of Winter Park, with its shops, restaurants, sledding, tubing, etc.. Is only two miles away. This makes an enjoyable walk, or in the winter you can snowshoe or cross country ski down the Fraser River trail.

Winter Park Resort is famous for its world class skiing. The 3rd largest ski area in Colorado, the GORP guide to Colorado skiing calls Winter Park 'grandiose and varied'. The ski area offers 3 main peaks, 3,060 acres of terrain, 143 designated trails, as well as 1,212 acres of off-post terrain, including glade skiing and Vasquez cirque. Average snowfall is 359 inches per year, which is more than Beaver Creek, Vail, Breckenridge, Aspen, Snowmass, Steamboat, Telluride, Keystone, Copper Mountain, Crested Butte, and more...

About John Hermes

My wife and I purchased this unit in July 2013 to enjoy as a getaway from our hometown in Tampa, Florida. Our boys love the Colorado lifestyle, and we love our new mountain getaway.

Why John Hermes chose Old Town

After looking at dozens of units throughout Winter Park and Fraser, and staying at many more, our condo at Winter Park Place won hands down, and it was not even close. The location and amenities beats even the brand new units.

Wonderful property and wonderful owner

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year renting here and we love it! The space gives our family enough privacy and at the same time the first floor is a good gathering area with room for everyone. You can't beat the location and John is wonderful at responding quickly to any questions. It is nearly impossible to find such a great property at this price so close to the mountain. We highly recommend staying here!

Great place for family ski trip!

  • 4 of 5

Plenty of room, well stocked kitchen for cooking, a little outdated in bathrooms and kitchen but nothing that effected our stay. The shuttle to the base is literally right outside the door. So convenient! We will definitely be back!

Perfect location for skiing!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Alpine Retreat! The host was very attentive and prompt with our deposit return. The bus picks you up right across the street from the condo and it is a 2 minute bus ride to the lifts. PERFECT LOCATION! The only reason I gave it 4 stars was the in-condo hot tub was filthy and smelled - not sure when the water was last changed - lots floating in it. There was a hot tub in the condo area for all to use, but we hoped to use in the one inside the condo more. However, the rooms were great - we loved having the kids on the main floor while we were upstairs. All linens and towels were great - kitchen was stocked just fine - loved having a W/D in the unit as well. All in all a great place and we will be back!

Owner's Response: Dawn, Sorry about the hot tub, it is cleaned weekly, but as you can imagine, it only takes one instance for their to be a problem. I have went ahead and sent my tub guy over to do a cleaning.

Great location, amenities, and host - extremely easy logistics and relaxed rules. My family came to visit and we needed a place to vacation together - the condo was roomy, comfortable, and well worth the price. Thanks John!
