“Great Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

We are owners, but haven't stayed at Gold Point for quite some time. We've been trading our 3-bedroom unit and seeing lots of other great locations throughout the US and Europe. However, it seemed like a great idea to bring the grandkids up for the 4th of July week. We had forgotten how awesome the view is from Gold Point. Even though the condos are a bit on the older side they have been well maintained. Our grandkids enjoyed the passes to the Breckenride Rec Center. I agree with one of the other reviews that the walls aren't very sound-proof and we had some noisy guests next to us. You can try calling the front desk, but no one is available and you can only leave a message. The staff is friendly, but not available after hours. Other than the noise issue, Gold Point is well worth staying and we had a great time going into town.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Gold Point Condominiums, we truly appreciate your feedback. We are so pleased to hear you brought your grandkids up for 4th of July week and that you enjoyed the property. Our maintenance team does work diligently to keep the resort up to date and we are thrilled to hear their efforts have not gone un-noticed. We are also glad to hear the grandkids enjoyed the Breckenridge Recreation Center passes; they are certainly a nice “extra” for our Gold Point Owners.

That contact number is provided to all guests and owners upon check in. Thank you again for reviewing the Gold Point Condominiums, we look forward to having you as our guest for years to come.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

Let us preface this by saying we were assigned a studio, and it appeared that the larger rooms were much nicer as indicated in other reviews. The entire size of the studio was about the size of the kitchen in our 800 square foot Denver home. The studio had no view (it opened onto the parking lot), had not been updated since the 80's, and lacked the basic amenities that it was advertised as having (i.e., access to a kitchen, meaning you had to pay $5 for a cup of coffee in Breckenridge). So, we were left with a mini-fridge and microwave, meaning we had to eat out in the very expensive ski town restaurants in Breckenridge.

Also, this is not "Breckenridge" in the traditional sense. It is very far, and very elevated, from downtown. If you are coming from outside of Colorado, be prepared for altitude sickness. Also, if you are over 5' 10"", be prepared for your feet to hang off the bed - which left us with a sore back every morning. As a basic complaint, something as simple as air conditioning would go a far way if you are visiting in the summer, but there was none. Also, you can hear EVERYTHING through the paper thin walls (including what is going on in the public hot tubs in each unit).

On the plus side, this place did have one of the most friendly and helpful staff we have ever met. However, for the same price, spend half as much time at the Broadmoor - - you'll have a much better time.

Room Tip: Do not stay in a studio.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Gold Point Condominiums, we truly appreciate your feedback. We sincerely apologize that you were not entirely pleased with your stay. The majority of the Gold Point condos were first built in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s and our maintenance team has worked diligently to keep the resort up to date so that all of our guests and owners are able to comfortably enjoy their stay. We do have a plan in place where each building gets updates on a schedule. Although we wish we could do more all at once we do have a responsibility to be fiscally responsible for our owners and to make updates and replacements as necessary. There are a variety of room configurations to accommodate all different types of guests and their families. All rooms except the studios have full kitchens and decks. Our apologies that you planned for a full kitchen we can certainly understand the inconvenience. We only advertise the studios in having microwaves, toasters, coffee makers, cutlery and mini refrigerators (3-5 cubic feet). We apologize you experienced some discomfort due to the lack of air conditioning. In an effort to keep the design of the resort as green as possible while eliminating energy costs it was decided that the Gold Point Condominiums would not feature air conditioning. In fact, very few resorts above 9,700 feet above sea level have air conditioning due to the cool, dry mountain weather we experience all year long. As you mentioned, the Gold Point condos are located a few miles up from down town Breckenridge and does sit at a higher elevation. This affords our guests gorgeous views of the Breckenridge Ski Resort but altitude sickness can be a concern to those coming up from sea level. For altitude sickness we recommend drinking a lot of water on your way up and while you are here. Also, it is a good idea to have ibuprofen or Tylenol on hand in case of headaches. Altitude sickness is no fun and we apologize if you had trouble acclimating. On a brighter note, we do pride ourselves on providing our guests with exceptional customer service and are thrilled to hear our efforts did not go unnoticed. Keep in mind that the Gold Point condos are great for families and large groups; they are very spacious, have huge, fully-equipped kitchens (except the studios), have amazing views and great deck space (except the studios). If you’re looking for something a little closer to town, lower in elevation and a little more modern we would love to have you as our guest at one of our other properties, either Grand Timber Lodge or the Grand Lodge on Peak 7. Thank you again for reviewing the Gold Point Condominiums, we appreciate the feedback.

I just spent seven days at the Gold Point Resort in Breckenridge, and was very pleased. Condo's are two story-duplex like units and my end unit had a fantastic deck overlooking Breckenridge Valley, the ski resort and the 10 Mile Mountains. Visit was in June, but snow still capped the mountains, despite the 70-80 degree weather.The staff at Gold Point resort are very accomodating, and my unit was perfectly maintained. Every amenity was thought of and provided in the condo.I was delivered to the resort via the CME (Colorado Mountain Express) shuttle service directly from Denver airport to the front door, and thankfully had no need for a rental car. Although the resort sits high above Breckenridge Village, free and frequent bus service provided rapid (and scenic) transportation to Breckenridge Village.Hiking and bike trails were located immediately outside my front door, and I loved the immaculate and very comforting jacuzzi. Each building has it's own jacuzzi and BBQ grill. At night, enjoy the amazing star filled night sky while sitting on the deck. The main lodge provided a fireplace, reading room and computer, but internet access and printing capability was spotty. Weekly and daily wi-fi service was also available for purchase in your condo for up to two users.

Room Tip: Choose an end unit, with unobstructed views. Some of the lower, central units have views obstructed...

We had a 3 Bedroom unit which was perfect. The kitchen was well appointed and the fact that each room had a humidifier made a HUGE difference. We also loved the gas-powered fireplace. The only issue we had was that the walls are thin, and we got to listen to our neighbors which got a little old, but fortunately only lasted a few days. One thing we enjoyed though was the daily visit of a small Red Fox. He was just looking for a snack, but he provided some beautiful pictures.

What makes it worth the stay though it clearly the views. Simply put...there was no bad view in the area given the fact that you are above town.

Speaking of town, you are only five minutes from Breckenridge, so you're close to everything!

Gold Point Condo’s sit several hundred feet above the great town of Breckenridge and is a few miles up Boreas Pass Road. The unit we stayed in was roomy and although not newly furnished it was more than adequate for us. This condo complex is out of town just enough to make you feel that you are, “up in the mountains”. The Summit County free bus even runs near by the units. This is a great town to visit at any time of year other than the “mud season” when the snow is melting. (late April & early May) If your goal is to be in the high country and still just a short drive or bus ride down to all the great activities in Breckenridge this is a good consideration.

Room Tip: Spring time with the wild flowers in Summit COunty / Breckenridge is a wonderful time to visit. Chec...

Thank you for taking the time to review the Gold Point Condominiums, we truly appreciate your feedback. We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed the property, its high alpine location and its spacious units. As you mentioned the Summit County Free Bus stops right outside the complex which makes for easy transportation up and down Boreas Pass Road into town. This property is ideal for folks who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of down town Breckenridge and feel like they are truly in the mountains. The peaceful atmosphere is also ideal for sitting back and enjoying the breathtaking views of the Ten Mile Range. We are so glad to hear the property met your expectations and we look forward to having you as our guest for years to come.

Lots of problems with Gold Point. First, the construction. These condos were obviously built in the 1980's and there is absolutely no interior insulation. We could hear every footstep and conversation of our neighbors and when they flushed a toilet it sounded like a waterfall coming through our unit, enough to wake you up in the middle of the night. Second, the maintenance. Our outdoor light by the entrance was broken (not a burned out bulb but a photo cell problem) and despite the fact that we reported it the second day there, it was never repaired. Given the hard-packed snow and ice around the entrance this was a serious safety hazard. Finally, the elevation. Gold Point is about 1,000 feet higher than Breckenridge and that exacerbates the altitude sickness problem for people who live near sea level. We spent two nights in Denver before coming to Breckenridge and still had problems acclimating. BTW, there is no way you want to stay at Gold Point in the ski season without a 4x4 vehicle. Boreas Pass Road is not for the faint hearted, even in a Jeep.

On the positive side, the management is friendly and they seemed to want to provide a good vacation experience. But they just can't, given the age of the facilities.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Gold Point Condominiums, we appreciate your feedback. We are sincerely sorry that you were disturbed by the guests in the neighboring apartment and the property did not meet your expectations. We truly appreciate having this opportunity to address the concerns you have shared. As you mentioned the majority of Gold Point Condominiums were built in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s.

As you mentioned, Gold Point is located a few miles up from down town Breckenridge and does sit at a higher elevation which affords our guests gorgeous views of the Breckenridge Ski Resort but altitude sickness can be a concern to those coming up from sea level and a four wheel drive vehicle would be ideal for the commute.

We are staying at Gold Point Resort to ski over President's Week. We traded a Marriott Aruba Surf for this. Because I made the request so late we got a one bedroom for our 2 bedroom. I could not believe how large the unit was! It is much larger than any of the other timeshares I have stayed in over the years. The unit even has a "mud room" which for skiers is a real advantage. The parking was abundant. There is a garage for each unit right out the downstairs door and plenty of parking if more cars are with your party. It is a couple of miles out of town, but after you see how crowded the condos are in town, you will be happy for the peace and quiet. It is an easy drive, no more than 10 - 15 minutes to anywhere in town. You can take the free shuttle to the Gondola. It runs twice per hour during peak times. I would highly recommend this resort.
