“Great location, huge outdoor hot tub, comfortable, new units”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2009

Just returned from a four night stay at Founders Pointe. Founders and Fraser are side by side buildings connected by a warm, underground parking garage and across the street from the Zephyr at the ski base area of Winter Park. The units are new, clean, and fully equippped. We slept 2 adults/4 kids in a 2 bedroom with a sleeper sofa and were very comfortable. The full kitchen and dining table were great for meals. The huge outdoor hot tub was awesome and never crowded. Ski lockers are conveniently located on the first floor. The building is in a great location. It is about a 5 minute walk to the Zephyr lift which even the kids could do easily. The skiing was terrific. This is a great accomodation for families. There is really no night life at the base area or in the town of Winter Park if that is your desire.

Fraser Crossing And Founders Pointe are identical condo properties next door to each other a short walk across the way from the Zephyr Mountain Lodge, whose conceirge and front desk services are utilized by renters of these units (ie that's where you check in, call for info, etc) The amenities are clean and modern as the condos are brand new. Security is excellent: your room keycard is needed to access the front entrance to the building, the downstairs ski equipment locker room, as well as your own suite. We had an efficiency (the base unit) and it was plenty big for two adults featuring a comfortable queen bed, fold out sofa and sitting area with a gas fireplace. A kitchenette, as described in detail (above review) was more than adequate. In speaking with other guests, the two BR units have full sized kitchens and their own washer and dryers----others use the laundry room on the third level. The hot tub is big and HOT--we loved it. That area will be great for lounging around when it's not ski season and a bit warmer for barbequing, sunning, etc. I spoke with lots of guests from all over and I heard no complaints.
Aside from a very short walk across an un-busy street the location is ski-in-out, and close to shops and restaurants. The Zephyr Mountain Lodge shuttle (free, but tip the driver) runs regularly around the resort and into the Town of Winter Park ("downtown") if you don't have your own car.

We stayed at Fraser Crossing/Founders Pointe for two days over Christmas. I will start by saying the location is perfect in proximity to the slopes and the new Village in Winter Park. It is literally right across the driveway from the Zephyr Lodge which houses all of the shops and restaurants at the base fo the mountain. Excellent location and view. The check-in is located in the Zephyr and was quick and easy. They instruct you on how to access the underground parking and to just call them if you need extra towels or linens. The parking garage is a huge plus, espescially since it it included in the price of the room. It sure beat having to scrape our car windows. Our room was located on the 4th floor with a view of the Mary Jane mountain and the new gondola from the Vintage. These condos are nearly brand new, so they were impecibly clean and modern. We stayed in a one bedroom kitchenette wich featured a partial kitchen. A mini fridge, microwave, two burner stove, dishwasher, and full sink. They also include pots, pans, utensils, cups, plates, etc. The bathroom was beautiful with an oversized soaking tub and separate shower and granite counter tops troughout. The bedroom had plenty of space for storage and was nicely decorated. The living area had a fireplace that came on with the flip of a switch and a great view from the patio. I really had no complaints about this place, it is well worth the money! The staff was very friendly, the office manager on the parking garage level was super nice and was more than happy to answer questions. Another great feature is the hot tub/outdoor fireplace area on the third floor. Each building has it's own area like this, so it was never crowded. They had BBQ grills out there as well in case you felt like grilling. The hot tub was awesome. It was the size of a small pool with a veriety of jet strengths and felt great after a long day of skiing or driving. I really cannot say enough about how great Fraser Crossing was. It is espescially great if you are travelling with family and kids. They even provide a free ski locker on the main floor to store your equipment. This place is pricey, we paid $279 per night, but definately worth it to be that comfortable and accessible to the ski area and ammenities. We will most certainly stay here again!
