“Grand TImber is truly Grand”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2008

We love to go to Breck to ski. For the past 3 years we have stayed at Grand TImber Lodge. The facilities are great, hot tub, pool, spa, ski in & ski out, as well as a shuttle to take you anywhere in Breck and promply pick you up. The rooms are either studio or larger condo type units. It is very quiet, very clean, and is well staffed. People are courteous and and the conceirage services are extremely helpful. We have stayed there with just adults and with little children. We have always enjoyed our stay.

  • Liked — Quality, quiet, clean, with great staff and good location.
  • Disliked — The units were warm, we had to keep a window open a bit to keep from overheating.

Grand Timber Lodge is a great place to go either with friends to relax, or with family to have an enjoyable vacation. We have plenty of activities for kids on property, and there is tons more to do in town for guests of all ages.

This a great resort!!! Very large and spread out. Makes it feel more private.

Pools are great!!!

Ski in and out is fine. Must look for the right trails to get you back.

Rooms quite.

Used the shuttle service often. Sure comes in handy. Park your car and let the shuttle drop you off and pick you up anytime, anywhere. Just call the number on your room card and you speak directly to the driver.

Restaurant is small and casual, but food is good. Service???depends on your waiter.

Did not use spa.

Game room small.

Lodge room lovely!

Buildings 2 and 3 are older and quieter. (worked fine for us)
Buildings 5 and 6 are where all the action is ---but noisy too!!!
Buildings 7 and 8 no review did not visit.

Christy sports - very disappointed!!! Do not rent skis here!!!

Would love to come back and are planning too!!!!!!!!!!

Grand Timber Lodge is versatile - there are quieter areas for those who want to relax - or parts that see more activity for kids and families. The shuttle is also a great tool for getting to and from town, especially on those cold winter nights!

We swoped our timeshare in Park City (Westgate) to come here big mistake. The resort was very nice but the room was not good at all. We knew it would be a studio but the unit was not fitted out very nicely, there was dirty bed linen left on the floor and the furniture was old and past it's best. The bathroom seemed to have been re done and was quite nice.

The kitchen is at the foot of the bed and if you don't put out the garbage(rubbish) it's what you see first thing when you wake up. Also the kitchen units have a hole in the middle where the waste bin is and you can see all the plumbing, looks like it has not been finished off properly.

When I asked the reception desk to move the dirty sheets and complained that the bed was only half made they looked at me as if I was complaining about nothing. I felt that I wanted to clean the apartment myself!!

The restaurant was ok if you like American fast food, pizza very good but we went to the Beaver Run resort restaurant where the food was far superior and only 5-10 mins walk.

The resort is great but don't go to the Grand Timber Lodge we will not be going back. Our room was in Building 6.

The studio rooms at Grand Timber Lodge are smaller than the one bedrooms, with the kitchenette, bed and pullout couch in the studio.

We train both our housekeeping and front desk staff extensively with the goal of providing every guest with a great vacation. We are committed to this goal, and apologize if any guests feel that they were treated with indifference.

My family exchanged our Marriott timeshare for Thanksgiving week at Grand Timber Lodge. We enjoyed every minute at the hotel and the town of Breckenridge for the holidays.

We were very worried about space, however we fit 8 comfortably in the 2 bedroom (1 bedroom with a queen, second bedroom with 2 double beds and a pull out couch in the livingroom)! The beds were very nice -- we slept like babies after skiing all day! The best part of the room however, was the kitchen. Since we were there over Thanksgiving, we wanted to cook our festive meal at home. The kitchen in our room came equip with everything we needed!! All the pots and pans, can/wine openers, dish towels, drink containers, tuperware, etc.

The staff was very helpful all week long with weather updates and lifts/activities open in the area. They had good restaurant suggestion and local knowledge.

The amenities were pretty good as well -- the outside hot tubs (yes, multiple tubs) were wonderful! The work out facilities were not the best, but we got our exerciseskiing anyways.

Overall a GREAT Colorado experience, we already have plans to reserve a week at Grand Timber Lodge for Thanksgiving 2008!

Grand Timber Lodge is a family resort - and a great place to take the family for a vacation or holiday! We have great amenities such as the pools and hot tubs, game room, spa, etc. - something for everyone.

The fully equipped kitchens in the one bedroom and larger rooms are great for cooking a family meal and feeling right at home. Additionally, our activities desk is a great tool for families to find other fun things to do in and around Summit County during their stay here!

I have just returned from an amazing stay at the Grand Timber Lodge. I must admit I was a little worried after reading the reviews because although were had visited regularly in the past we had not been to GTL for 3 years.
It was as good as I remember. The furnishings were great, the carpet clean. I had a little trouble closing a window but someone came to see to it straight away. The staff were friendly and helpful - we even got cookies as we checked in. The room was ready ahead of time. The room cleaning was immaculate and it was the BEST equipped self-catering I have ever been to.

The only down point was that I usually come on an interval international getaway - and yes the units I have been given in the past have often overlooked the air-conditioning outlets or garage door. However I have come to see that as the price I pay for getting such a great late deal price. In this case I was in Unit 6304 - and the bedroom window was above the air-con outflow. However as I was never on the balcony (it was freezing) it hardly bothered me.

I would like to say - well done Grand Timber Lodge. I will be back!

First time at GTL and Breckenridge and we had a great time. Late ski season meant no lines and easy manuvering. Just purchased timeshare resale based on reviews here and other sources and have found excellent value, especially compared to other outstanding ski locations and lodging locations here at Breckenridge.

For party of 6 (2 adults, 4 teens), two bedrooms with sofa pull-out in living room worked great. Plenty of room for all and no one complained. Rooms were clean and nicely decorated. Full kitchen facilities and has washer/dryer. For a ski lodge location, this is an excellent facility (remember that ski locations get beat up fast). They definitely maintain their place well. We had only one small problem with dryer and they had a man there within 15 min to correct it immediately (truth be told, we did not how to use properly).

Ski-in is definitely correct. Ski-out is a stretch but is still easy to get to sloops. Of course they have free shuttle service if needed. Christy Sports has shop right on premise so we left our equipment there overnight and avoided carrying equipment around. Rentals and equipment repairs can be handled right there - that's easy.

After a day on the sloops, going to the hot tubs and pools is lots of fun. Hanging poolside, either indoors or outdoors is a treat sloopside. You can watching skiers on sloops - too bad the terrain park wasn't in view otherwise that would be a homerun. You can grab a lunch or drinks right next to the pools/ hot tub.

GTL tries to make some activities for the kids (cards,mixer,etc)during the early evenings. With late season, there were not too any kids around, but certainly made friends in and around pool area. DVD rental (limited selection) available, as well as wi-fi connection. TV's in each room.

Easy access to downtown Breckenridge - great food, interesting shops, places to go - this is why this resort - Breckenridge - is great. As with all ski resorts, make sure you bring plenty of $$$. Nothing about the ski experience is cheap.

Finally, skiing at Breckenridge was a blast. Varied terrain areas, terrain parks for the snow boarders in our group. Watch out for the thin air - I had a headache for quite a while and was taking medication constantly to maintain it. Got to the top at 12,800+ feet. Talk about getting high. Bowl skiing, tree skiing, cruisers, bumps - had it all.

I can assure you that your experience at GTL and Breckenridge will be a good one. We will be back in 2009.

  • Liked — convienence - clean - high end location - and of course the skiing - and great food
  • Disliked — had to pay for wi-fi

It is great to know when a new owner has a great experience at Grand Timber Lodge! Any satisfied owner can refer their friends and family to us; they can come to Breckenridge on a discounted (or free) vacation, tour our new property, and see what our owners love so much! Information about the Friends and Family Rewards program is on the Grand Timber Lodge website, or just give us a call.

This vacation was an exchange with Disney Vacation Club. I've got to agree with the good and bad reviews. This resort has MANY wonderful qualities. Beautiful grounds, big rooms, very thoughtfully designed amenitites, lots of big, fluffy towels, great washer and dryer, comfy beds. We had a very nice huge 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit. It was beginning to look a bit shabby though, and there were some issues. Our unit smelled horribly upon check in, but was ok once we aired it out. The carpets were so dirty that we wore shoes all the time. The dresser drawers had hairs and debris in them..luckily there was a good disenfectant cleaner in the unit, so I "got" to clean on vacation. There were some light bulbs out, and the ones working were very low wattage..we had to have all the lights on all day long, as we had a very dark unit..no real good natural light. There were some other small maintainence issues...all this more the fault of bad housekeeping and maintainence, not the unit itself. I've got to agree that the staff is pretty indifferent..we had bad experiences with check-in, the bar and grill waitress, and the concierege..she would NOT take no when we refused to sign up for one of those "buy here" tours...it took us 4 times saying no before she gave up. We are pretty forgiving travelers, but this staff was the worst we have encountered in a very long time...and certainly never encountered at such a highly rated resort.The biggest disappointment was the total lack of even a mountaintop to look at from our unit. We were here for views and peace and quiet...after all it is September, the very low season out here, and we even left a day early because of noise and no views unless we left our unit. We were in building #1 and faced the inner courtyard. Our "view" was into another unit across from us. Yuck! The noise factor was a real pain over the weekend. We were fortunate enough to get a top floor room, but were RIGHT over one of the two pools..and let me tell you, with no AC here, thus forcing us to leave the windows open, the NOISE was horrible when kids were in there screaming, yelling, and crying. And let me tell you, there were kids and noisy young adults splashing in the pool from open to close over the weekend..UGH! It was not busy the week we were there, so hall noise was not an issue. But, from what we did hear, when this place is full, the hall noise has got to be quite irritating too.The good out weighs the bad here, and if you are lucky enough to get a unit that has mountain views, is on the top floor, and away from the elevator and pools, this will make your off season vacation a great one. During ski season, this has got to be a fantastic place to stay...it's close to the gondoloas and everything else. And the rooms are huge...after skiing all day, a unit here would be most welcome..and noise probably wouldn't be a problem what with being exhausted from hours of skiing. We will be back, Colorado in the fall is gorgeous...and hopefully, the management will take charge of a very lousy staff, and make this a top of the line place to stay once again.

Some units at Grand Timber Lodge experience more wear and tear throughout the year than others, however every room goes through two weeks of maintenance and updating each year. Our maintenance staff is always available to fix damages or problems in the units during dates of stay as well.

Due to the mountain environment and difference in location of each building, it is natural that some units will have different views and/or amounts of natural light. Depending on availability, anyone may request a certain building or unit. It will not be guaranteed but we do our best to honor such requests.

Grand Timber Lodge is a family resort - many owners have purchased with us with the intent of using it for family vacations. At busier times, there may be more children on property and more activity and/or noise, particularly around the pool and recreation areas.
