This unique property sitting on Main St. in Frisco was a very good base for a ski vacation. One has the option of 3+ different mountains all within about 20 minutes. While listed as a B&B on their site, it is more akin to a lodge rather than a true bed & breakfast. That is not to take away from the above average breakfast bar with the fun waffle maker! I came across at least 4-5 different staff members, one which seemed very busy, perhaps pre-occupied with their new acquisition of the Frisco Inn @ Galena which did detract slightly from the service level, but main takeaway is the majority of the staff were attentive, caring and helpful. Extra special thanks to young lady with the long locks who was extremely hospitable and made me feel comfortable.
Venue is divided into main lodge with a more homey feel and the more private back lodge which has a high-end motel feel. I was in the latter, and a restful nights sleep was achieved the duration of my stay. While sometime you hear of places with thin walls, I would venture to guess they have thick walls, as what seemed to be during a high/full occupancy period, I was only able to hear very muffled quiet sounds.
I would not come here for romantic weekend due to the rustic level and lack of romanticism, but would certainly come here with the lady for a more "adventurous" weekend, consisting of skiing, biking, hiking, etc. In other words, you do not go to Frisco to stay at the Frisco Lodge, but rather to enjoy the wonders of Summit County, and Frisco Lodge fits the bill as a perfect home base!
The ski bus stop is a few blocks away, not bad, but would be more convenient if it were closer for those walking with ski boots...No complaints there, the bus is free and runs frequently enough.
Overall, a nice stay with good value, when considering I've stayed across the street at the Frisco Hotel a few times and have a point of reference for relativity.
