Wonderful winter property
Five levels that make it very easy to sleep in a quiet place. No bedroom is directly over the other.
Kitchen is a bit small but has everything you'll need to cook a meal and serve 7. We cooked everything from Pasta to Ribeyes. We made every day's breakfast to order on the electric griddle.
The garage is outstanding for storing skis. You can walk in from being in the snow without tracking up the house. They also have plenty of shovels for keeping ahead of a snow storm. The plow service took care of the rest. (We got about 6 inches)
A full washer and dryer are ideal for ensuring a great week while only bringing a couple days of clothes.
Each sleeping area has its own full bathroom. This provides some nice separation between kids and adults at night.
It's quiet nestled back on a loop. away from traffic. It's on a level lot so no worries about steep driveways or sketchy roads.
Breck is a horror show to get to daily to ski if you're not staying on the mountain. That makes this property roughly equal to all others in the area for the purpose. We parked early each day in the F-lot or Gondola parking.
You're only a couple blocks from the neighborhood amenity center. Our kids had a blast swimming and playing raquetball.
In the back yard is a small hill ideal for youngsters to sled on. They have a number of sleds in the garage to use (thanks!)
A couple miles away towards Breck is a city park with an amazing sled hill. Our teens spent nearly 3 hours there on our last day getting up to all sorts of shenanigans. There is also a pay-for tubing area (meh), and Nordic center. The free hill was simply too much fun for the rest to matter.
These are not complaints (we have none). These are observations to help you select a place
* The lowest level has a bunk and double and pull out couch. The bunk was a bit too small for my 14 and 18 yr old. It would be perfect for kids under 12.
* There are tons of knick knacks about. If you have little kids who like to touch all-the-things, be ready to move things up and out of the way.
* If you like a firm pillow, bring your own. There were no extras. One of our friends found it uncomfortable.
* A lot of stairs due to the split level layout. Keep this in mind if your kids are itty bitty still.
# Around Town
* I had amazing service on my skis and a boot from Jimbo at Montana Precision Ski and Golf
* The Meatball sub at Spinellis is off the hook!
* You need reservations at Greco's
Exactly as advertised
The unit presents exactly as advertised. This is an older unit that is perfectly maintained. The location is perfect for all Summit County activities.
Stayed here for 2 different trips and will come back
I just wrote to Don and Carol to tell them what a great time we had. I stayed with 4 friends I have known for 25+ years. We were so blessed to be able to ski together and talk about the old times while staying here at Don and Carol's wonderful condo. 5 beds plus a few couches and a pull out. A large dining room table. Comfortable for everyone and we all were able to have private space or uncrowded community space. I think we could have sat 8 at the table if I recall correctly. The pictures on this site should be updated as the condo is much more appealing in person and not as dated as some pics suggest. Not one person of the five of us could find anything to complain about and we were all happy with the accommodations. We were easily able to cook meals with the full kitchen and keeping a car in the garage is a great benefit in single digit weather. The plow came by a few times and removed snow from the drive. Another benefit was being only a few blocks from downtown Frisco and the great dining on Frisco's main street. I could go on but I can promise if you stay here you will not be disappointed. Great place. Thanks to both of you.
Great for my family/group to take advantage of the various ski areas and still have pleasant dinners together. Downstairs was perfect for the kids to watch a movie while the adults conversed upstairs; plenty of kitchen to make meals easily; good location; clubhouse for anyone desiring pool/hot tubs. Friend was able to easily work remotely and found top room pleasant. I hope to find time to visit again.
Great location. This place met all our needs. Owners where great to work with.
