I've been staying in timeshare condos for over 15 years and this one really stood out. The small things made a big difference.
When we first arrived I was a little disappointed as I kinda expected this big fancy ski resort, but it turned out to be a lot smaller than expected and built in a neighborhood vs a resort area. After we stayed a few nights it started to sink in that I didn't need to be staying at a fancy, large, resort. It was nice to not have the crowds. We even had our own covered parking space so we didn't have to worry about our car being covered in snow.
When we checked in they had a really nice folder with lots of helpful information. It contained coupons for the local area and Breckenridge, the weeks weather report, activities list, even a list of suggested things to do. The units had a DVD player and they had a great selection of movies to rent at the club house. I loved having a wood burning fire place. They even provided a starter log and all the fire wood we could burn. In the condo they had name brand items, like hand soap, detergent, and other products. It was nice to not see the cheap generic brands. They also had a humidifier with a note that suggested we use it to help off set the effects of being at the higher altitude. Like I said all the little touches made a big difference.
The one and only complaint is that the blinds in the master bedroom were white and the sunlight would come right in so it made it hard to stay in bed and sleep in. It also was lighter than we would have liked during the night as it let in light from the parking lot. It would be a quick and cheap fix to improve for future stays. We debated handing a blanket over the window to block out the light, but we decided not to mess with it.
The staff were all great. Very friendly and helpful. The resort had a great location. Only a short drive to several top locations in Colorado. We did several day trips and saw a lot of Colorado. It was great to use as a home base. If coming back to this area of Colorado we would defiantly stay here again.
