This unit offers numerous amenities that make a Winter Park vacation one that you and your family or friends will remember for the rest of your life. Do you need room for a lot of people? We have actual bed space for 13 with space for 2 more on a fold out sofa, total of 15. We feel that a real bed is much more comfortable than an air mattress or pull out mattress/sofa. Do you want easy access to the slopes? You can either walk a short trail to the ski corridor and ski to the base (ski in/ski out) or you can walk down about a block where the green line bus, that runs continuously, will pick you up and take you to the lifts at the base. This bus will be at the loading point approximately every 20 minutes, there is NO other line in the bus system that picks up that frequently or drops you so close to the lifts. You can also use the bus system to travel into Winter Park, Fraser and other destinations (this requires switching buses). Ski rental (Breeze) is available about a block away at the Iron Horse property. Enjoy golf? Pole Creek and
Grand Elk Golf Clubs are within a 20 minute drive. Do you want to relax in a spa at the end of the day? We have one on the back deck. Want the option of personal space? Separate living areas allow for conversations in multiple places. Do you have children? So do we! We have stocked items like high chairs, a pack-n-play, swim diapers and other items. We have an X-box One in the basement with a few family friendly games along with several family friendly movies. Our children use their sleds and play/explore in the cul de sac in front of the unit and along the path in the woods behind the townhome. We have rented several units in Winter Park over the years for our family vacations. This unit, by far, is the most spacious and most comfortable we've ever stayed at. You will not forget the positive memories you create while vacationing at 464 Base Camp.

Both the upstairs and the downstairs have laundry closets with full sized high efficiency washers and dryers and are stocked with detergent and dryer sheets. Just in case you want to wash something while you're here or prefer to avoid taking home dirty laundry.
We have a couple of hair dryers and humidifiers as well as several fans and throw blankets and luggage racks scattered throughout the bedrooms. Feel free to move them wherever you want them!
Our gourmet kitchen is well stocked with high end appliances and a wide variety of small appliances, dishes, and cookware including a 6 burner Wolf range and oven, large Sub-Zero refrigerator, dishwasher, large microwave, Keurig, traditional coffee maker, toaster/toaster oven, crockpots, blender, electric griddle, hand mixer, food processor, and a wide variety of cookware and dishes including child-friendly items. We also stock many common pantry items and condiments. We use this kitchen ourselves to feed our large family and guests that travel with us. Plus we take very seriously any recommendations we've received from guests. As a result, we've managed to reach a point where we have almost anything anyone might need.
The table in the kitchen/dining area has seating for 8 with 3 more at the island. There is also seating for two more at the bar nearby. Right in the dining area, there is an office chair that can be pulled up to the table, and there are two high chairs and three fold-up stools in the upstairs closet for additional seating if needed. Also, the deck off the great room (where the bar is located) has another table with seating for four around the table and another bench for two. We love sitting out on the deck and enjoying the beautiful mountain view.
There is a small office area to the side of the kitchen/dining area with a desk, chair and charging station.
Off the kitchen is the third deck with the spa/hot tub, a propane Weber grill, a cushioned chair, and a fireplace that is two sided with the other side being in the kitchen.
The great room features plenty of seating, a TV with a variety of family friendly movies, the bar, a cozy fireplace, and large windows to take in the gorgeous view.
The unit also has a heated garage with an additional space for parking on the driveway. The entry and garage have plenty of hooks and closet space to store all your equipment and gear.
The front door has keypad entry. You will be given your own code for your stay and will not have to deal with picking up or returning (or losing) keys. Just outside the front door is a private cul de sac area where kids can sled, build in the snow, play catch or have a snowball fight. The only traffic is from the other units which is very minimal. And, out the back is a fantastic forested area for the kids to play, sled, and explore. We often get a variety of wildlife that can be seen especially in the evening or morning hours.
About the Winter Park area:
Our unit is right on the resort. As mentioned before, you are just a short hike to the ski area. We are also only about a 1/4 mile walk to the Village where you can find shopping, restaurants, ice skating, night life, and other activities. The resort offers a variety of free activities during the ski and summer seasons including broom ball, live music, yoga, movies, s'mores, and more. There is a free cabriolet lift that makes for an enjoyable ride and beautiful views. You can also take it to the Coca-Cola tubing hill. In the town of Winter Park, about 4 miles or less than 10 minutes away, you will find many more restaurants, bars, and shops as well as a rec center, movie theater, bowling alley, park with free sledding, grocery store, gas stations, and hiking and biking trails. There is even a scenic biking trail that you can take into town. Just another 2 miles past Winter Park is the town of Fraser with a larger grocery store, a tubing hill, a rodeo during the summer, a public library, the train station, and some more shops and restaurants. As mentioned earlier, there are some beautiful mountain golf courses just 20 minutes away as well as Snow Mountain Ranch with an indoor swimming pool, roller skating, ping pong and pool and table hockey, indoor and outdoor basketball courts, outdoor miniature golf, craft activities, ice skating, tubing, and much more. There will be no lack of things to do while you're here!
