The only reason we stay here is because you can walk about 75 yards to the lift. Also, wild foxes are regulars and you will be able to see them walking around in the snow. The unit itself is in bad need of an update. There are about 5 hangers in the closet that is crowded with cheap plastic shelving. We had to pull the shelving out and store clothing on it out in the living room. There are no chest of drawers so we had to store more clothing in the kitchen shelving. The miniblinds are broken and tattered, the carpet is old and rumpled and the bathroom is very outdated and the tub drains slowly.
This unit has different themostats in the living room, bedroom and bathroom and keeping an even temperature is hard, its either too hot or too cold. There is no peep hole or security latch on the front door which is not a good thing when on vacation.
A real plus is the shuttle which will ferry you around town for free, just tip the driver. There is a TV in the kitchen and bedroom which is a plus. I almost forgot to mention that these units seem cater to a younger people that like to watch TV at full volume and in our case, they also like to smoke pot which seeped into our unit several times and stunk up our unit for a couple of hours.
Whatever, as I said we stay here for the ski lift access and the foxes. Don't expect much in the way of comfort or luxury here.
The positive of our stay was the location of the condo and the spaciousness of the condo.
The rest was pretty disappointing. There was something wrong with almost every bed... In the loft the bed tilted, the master bedroom bed was soft and sank way in and a couple of the twin beds sounded like they were going to fall apart every time you moved. The tile in the kitchen was breaking and most of the grout was gone from in between the tiles. My daughter cut her foot on a chunk of tile that was breaking off. One of the bar chairs kept falling apart and the overall decor was from the 80's. Checkout was at 10 am, but housekeeping showed up (actually came in) at 9:15. Avoid this location!
The condo was in a good location located across the street from Snowflake lift. It is a short walk to Main Street or you can also take the Free bus which stops across the street as well. The condo itself was well stocked. Kitchen has everything you need as far as pots, pans, utensiles,glasses, and plates. There is a coffee pot and a 4 slot toaster. It had plenty of extra sheets, pillows,blankets, and towels. There are hairdryers on the wall in each bathroom but we couldn't figure out how they worked. There was also one under the sink in the downstairs bathroom that worked well. The only downfall is it is two flights up and no elevator. Once you are in the condo the bedrooms are another flight up. There is one bathroom upstairs and one bathroom down stairs next to the living room. So if you don't want to share a bathroom with whomever is in the other bedroom than they will have to use the downstairs bathroom. There is a really nice big flat screen tv in the living room and two smaller ones in each bedroom. There is a large round dining table that we used for storing all of our ski gear like gloves, hats, googles, sunglasses. We ate all our meals on the counter with the bar stools. It is a corner unit so plenty of Windows and a balcony that you can watch people ski down 4 O'clock run from. If there is enough snow there is a little path you can ski down from the 4 o'clock run that will bring you down close to the hot tub. We skied down to the hot tub once we figured out how and that saved us a couple of feet of walking. The hot tub was really nice outside and they also have two inside which are pretty nice too. They are really close to the door to the condo complex. There is a ski locker for your skis and boots. We were able to fit two sets of skis and boots and two snowboards with no problem. You could probably fit a few more but it would be tight. I would recommend this unit if you do not mind walking a lot of stairs. The price is good and the location was also good too.
I have never stayed here during the Winter, but I imagine the experience must be much different. We stayed here one night before a weekend in Vail - and it more economical to have a two bedroom condo than two hotel rooms.
I imagine college kids must love this place because the living/dining room was enormous. You could house an army on the floor. The kitchen was large and well appointed as well. The master bedroom bed was a bit small, even though there was room for a larger bed.
For a group who is skiing at Breck, this place would be perfect.
The location can't be beat. You walk 50 steps to a lift and ticket kiosk and you can ski back to your room. Fantastic.
But the room and the service were pretty poor, especially given the high price of $365/night.
The bed in the pull out couch was TERRIBLE. The furniture and decor was shabby and looked like it was from the 1980s. The kitchen was not well stocked, for example there were no coffee filters.
Service wise, they were not very hospitable. We asked if we could have a late checkout on Sunday and were refused. They said their policy is never to allow late checkouts because the maid service's schedule is inflexible. Mind you, this was on a quiet weekend in March with very few people on the slopes. Worse, their check out time is early by industry standards--10am. This meant it was difficult for us to get a second day of skiing in.
I would not recommend staying here.
