About laura Lewis
After living in the Caribbean for 12 years and operating a charter business, we decided to move back to Colorado where Greg was raised. Greg wanted to cruise and Laura wanted to open a Bed and Breakfast. They bought a boat in South Africa and named it Sea Chateau. Once they found the perfect property in Winter Park, they purchased it and named it Winter Park Chateau, balancing out the Sea and Mountain life.
laura Lewis purchased this House in 2007

We had a family reunion with 27 people so the house seemed perfect. The house itself is well laid out for groups, but, immediately on arrival the problems started. Owner told us the dryer didn't work and when asked if someone was repairing it, she told us we could just use the laundromat just down the street. Not ideal but, ok, we can manage that.
That night, a ton of water flooded a section of the dining room, which had carpet. We called her, and she told us it must've been from someone leaving the nearby sink on. There was so much water the carpet squished it out around your feet; this was not from the sink! We gathered a bunch of towels and fans and did our best to dry it up, and turned off the sink she said the leak was from, though it was about 8 feet away from where the water started. It stunk to have to keep all the kids in the family out of the dining room, but it took days to dry so we tried hard to avoid walking through it.
The carpet was just drying up after three days when water literally started pouring from the ceiling into the dining room. It was clear this is what must've happened the first time, not a sink leak. Water everywhere. We called the owner and she immediately said "oh is someone showering on the second floor? It must be from there." This is frustrating that she seemed to know this was a potential issue but never told us. Even worse, when I said it was a pain to not use a shower, she replied "well there are 8 other showers in the house." It was super unhelpful, as we brought a huge group expecting accommodations for all, not to be told we could just use the other showers.
We again went about cleaning up the leak and flood. She did not come to the house until the next morning at 930. When our group asked about a discount or refund given all the headaches, she was completely unhelpful.
All in all, we ended up spending many hours dealing with fixing issues with the house, we had to dry all our own clothes and the towels from the leak (on rainy days with 27 people? Tricky to do using just sunlight), and at no point did the owner apologize or show any empathy to how this impacted our trip. We had a great vacation in spite of the house, not because of the house. A very frustrating experience and I would absolutely not rent from her again.
I am very sorry that the guests had to deal with such an unfortunate occurrence! The dryer broke that night and the guests arrived on Friday, not allowing enough time for a service call.
When called regarding the water, I had assumed that the water was coming from the powder room faucet, as we have an odd shaped vessel sink in this bathroom, and if not careful, the sink can be turned in such a way that all the water doesn't all make it into the bowl, thereby leaking all around it. This has happened when we have a lot of kids using the bathroom. When I explained this, the guests seem to agree. They actually called back the the next day and said that they thought that was what had happened.
I received another call their last night, stating that water was dripping from the ceiling. I assumed it was from one of the second floor bathrooms. As there wasn't much I could do at night, I asked them not to use that shower.
As there are 8 other showers available, and this was the last night, I didn't assume it to be an issue.
Again, I am sorry for the inconvenience and hope all other matters at the house and with their stay were enjoyable.
Great location for an offsite retreat!
Our team had a fantastic time at the Winter Park Chateau during our most recent team offsite. The space was great for team meetings and breakout sessions, the outdoor seats was perfect and allowed us to be outside while working, and the bedroom setup worked great! From a business standpoint, the large TV and reliable internet was very helpful. The location is great, as we were able to walk to dinner, enjoy numerous hikes, and loved the great views while we enjoyed the mountain air. I highly recommend the Winter Park Chateau!
Winter Park Chateau was a perfect reunion site
My brothers, sister and I and all our families (21 people in all) had a wonderful stay at the Chateau. It was arranged perfectly for our family and the location could not have been any better for seeing Winter Park and all it has to offer. The owners were kind and helpful and we enjoyed our time here so much. Would highly recommend this property!
Great mansion style house in the heart of downtown winter park
Our company has an annual team building retreat every year and I was in charge of finding the location this year. I chose Winter Park as it is only an hour from Denver and an ideal mountain setting. I picked this property as it has 9 bedrooms, and all with private baths. We drove to Winter Park and all met at the property in the morning. The property manager let us check in early as we just needed the meeting room early. There is a large room with an 80” tv that we were able to hook up with our computer and do some work and presentations. . Our first group activity was to choose each of our rooms then organize in the kitchen to make lunch.
The kitchen is well equipped with ample dishes, pots and pan, and tableware. We only had 10 in our group but it appeared that there is seating and service for at least 25.
We worked and then skied the next day. All met back at the property, made dinner and continued to”bond:.
I must say, this property is ideal for a group gathering. The layout is perfect. The location is walking distance to numerous restaurants and night entertainment, and on the shuttle bus to the mountain. We were able to split up and then take the shuttle at our own time as to not inconvenience anyone.
I would recommend this property if you are looking for a large group gathering, a great location and well appointed property with lots of amenities.
On the free shuttle bus route that takes you to the base of the ski mountain, only 5 minutes away
