We just returned from a week's stay at Timber Run. We were in the Aspen building in a 3 bedroom/2 bathroom condo. The outside of the building is nothing to write home about, so we were a little leery about going inside. However, we were pleasantly surprised! Some updating had been done and everything was tastefully decorated. Furniture was new and appliances look new(ish) as well. There was new carpet and the bathroom showers had been re-done. It was not fancy, but certainly met our needs! The unit was over 1400 square feet, so we had plenty of space. The kitchen was fully stocked. There was also a bar area across from a sitting/fireplace area. We found lots of board games and decks of cards in the cabinets. It did get quite chilly at night, so it was fun to turn the gas fireplace on and play games with our kids. The condo offered great views of the mountains. We had read about nearby railroad tracks and the trains being loud that went through. We did hear them, but they didn't blow their whistles and it didn't disturb our sleep. My only complaint about the condo is the beds! There is a queen bed in the master bedroom and the mattress is horrible! The bedding wouldn't stay on the mattress, so we'd wake up everyday with a backache and sheets tangled up. The pillows were very flat. The mattresses in the other bedrooms were just as bad (full size in one bedroom and 2 twins in the other). We felt very centrally located to enjoy Winter Park and surrounding areas. The condo was out of the hustle and bustle of downtown, but close enough to enjoy the action. Even though this was not the nicest or fanciest place we've stayed in, we'd go back in a heartbeat. It was clean and comfortable and we enjoyed the living space we had. We also had a garage. Outside parking was limited, so it was nice to be able to pull in! This would be particularly nice in the winter! Though we didn't have our own washer/dryer, there was one on the bottom floor by the garage entrances. It was never busy, so I was able to run a few loads of laundry without any trouble. We enjoyed our week at Timber Run!
