“Stayed many times, like a home away from home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

I have stayed in BVC several times. The ones we've stayed in have been individually owned condo units (maybe they are all individually owned). Anyway, we've booked the same one many times so it feels like a home away from home. That particular unit (has since changed ownership) could have used some updating on the TV and the lighting. But really the same could be said for my own house - haha. I actually love that they are away from the hill/resort a little bit, but close enough to get to the skiing and/or the WP (or Frazer) towns very quickly. The bus stops RIGHT in front of the condo that we've stayed in and there are frequent runs, very cool, very convenient. The units have full kitchens and everything you'll need for home cooked family meals after a hard day on the snow. Like I said, they feel like home, so you can come "home", kick back, turn on the TV, cook dinner, play board games, read, etc. I've always enjoyed a sound night's sleep - you will hear the train as it comes by in the night, etc. and skiers clomping down the stairs trying to get to first tracks. I plan on taking my family to WP again and I would not hesitate booking at BVC.

We are very happy to hear how much you enjoyed your stay with us! You are right each of the condos in our rental pool are individually owned so all are decorated differently. Our web site is a great tool to use when choosing a property that most suits your taste and comfort. Remember that
if you have a favorite condo and can't think of the unit number we can do a search to find exactly where you have stayed. You are always welcome to come "home" any time! Thanks for taking time to share your thoughts with us.

These condos are nice and the one we stayed in was clean and updated with a flat screen TV, cable and wireless internet. The clubhouse was clean but somewhat dated. It does have an indoor pool and 3 hot tubs which were quite nice. All in all, a good experience. One annoyance is the train, which runs behind the property and is active 24 hrs/ day.

Room Tip: Buildings near the back of the property have their own wireless.

Thanks for taking time to review our property. Please call us when planning your next visit to Winter Park as we do have buildings further away away from the tracks and we can suggest a better option for you. It's great to hear that your condo experience was nice and that you enjoyed the amenities we provide. The intention of the homeowner association is to up date the locker rooms and pool area. We would love to have you stay with us again.

Unbelievable experience with ALL the Comforts of Home. Spacious and Comfortable Retreat that seems to be Way Off By Itself, and yet the town in spread out just down the road. What a Surprise to discover the extremely reasonable rate and the super service. EVERYTHING You
might Wish for and then some.

Room Tip: Second Floor Views of the Forest are breathtaking.

We made a one night trip to Winter Park to see the change of seasons and take the kids swimming. I booked through Hotels.com and mentioned the importance of the pool. While I was on the line they called Beaver Village to confirm that the pool would be available. My husband also called later in the week to check our one night reservation and confirm the availability of the pool. Fast forward to yesterday, we arrive and check in only to find out that the pool closes at 4:45pm. Check in is at 4pm so obviously the fact that they didn't mention that small 45 minute window, despite multiple calls, is fully unacceptable. We have small children and booked this place for the pool, despite several other options. And more good news, check out is at 10am and the pool doesn't open until 9am.

Moving on, the room itself was fine. Nothing fancy and a bit dated with a fireplace that didn't work, but it was clean and quiet. The pool and locker rooms were a throw back to the 80s but given that places like this rely on the choices and funding of an HOA, I wouldn't expect them to want to spend the money for upgrades. During our brief time at the pool this morning I almost immediately stepped on a shard of glass as I walked away from my shoes to enter the pool. I had to go to the front desk, due to a fair amount of bleeding, and received some first aid supplies. The woman at the front desk was very friendly and understanding about our frustrations with the pool. When I walked back in and sat down to check out my foot I seriously stepped on another small piece of glass! All of this despite a no outside drinks or any glass policy in the pool area. The second shard didn't actually break my skin so I passed it on to the front desk and was told they would notify the company they contract with.

In summary, we won't stay with BVC again and I will generally steer clear of HOAs who contract with management companies, cleaning companies, etc. You may luck out with a beautifully upgraded condo, but you are just as likely to get the 1970s special for the same price. And to book a place in the winter with a pool and three hot tubs and not get to use them after skiing? No thanks.

If we had been notified of the very limited access to the pool we could have made a better choice for our family. As it ended up, everyone was quite let down.

We were sorry to hear that your stay with us was not a great experience. During the month of October the homeowners do shorten the hours of pool operation and for this we do apologize for the inconvenience. We do agree that the broken glass in the pool area was unacceptable. Our general manager has brought both of your issues up to the homeowners board and they have assured us they will pursue this with the property management company. We feel that comments from our guests are invaluable and thank you for taking time to bring this to our attention. Our goal is to provide the very best experience possible and will continue to do our best to achieve this.

This group of condominiums is well maintained and they offer better service than most direct rentals. We got an updated unit booked as a Getaway week through Interval International and we really enjoyed it. I though it was an excellent value in a great location. Yes, you can hear the train but so can the whole town of Winter Park!! We loved the indoor pool (I thought it was a nice touch that they offered pool towels and exchange, which I wasn't expecting from a condo) and my boys also loved the dvd library. They had awesome, current movies and you can check out two a day for free. I'd never been to Winter Park before and I found it prettier and way less crowded than Breckenridge and Vail with just as much to do (in fact my boys had an unforgettable time doing a countryside tour pulled by sled dogs although since it is summer they dogs were pulling a cart instead of a sled)! I wouldn't hesitate to return to Winter Park or Beaver Village Condos.

Thank you so much for your kind words about your stay with us. This is what makes our job so much fun and rewarding! We are happy that you enjoyed the pool and movies. Hopefully your son can return when we have some of our 365 inches of snow on the ground and ride the dog sled in a different environment! Winter is when the dogs really love to run and show thier stuff!

We have been coming up to Winter Park for the past 15 consecutive years and we always stay at the Beaver Village Condominiums. The staff members are excellent to work with and are very eager to make your stay the best on the planet. This year was no exception! We got to do everything we wanted, but unfortunately we had to cut our stay short due to a family emergency. Beaver Village gave us a refund for the night we lost. I won't stay anywhere else!

Room Tip: We always enjoy staying on the 3rd floor in condos 16-20. The vaulted ceilings are really nice and...

We have stayed at Beaver Village since 2010, and always enjoy our stay-in a one, two, or three bedroom. It is interesting to see how the owners have decorated their condos. This is a great value with a very good location. We have been there for the Jazz Festival in July and for Thanksgiving in November. There is nothing fancy about Beaver Village, but it is always clean and comfortable, and the staff is always friendly and helpful. Yes, there is a train that may wake you up at 2:45 am if you have your window open, but that is a minor inconvenience for such a great place to stay at a very reasonable price. We will stay there again next year and recommend it to anyone going yto Winter Park.

Room Tip: Buildings 9, 10,11 and 12 are quieter when it comes to the train, but buiding 7 is very close to a t...

We loved having you back with us again this summer! Just a reminder about the train noise, when you call to book your next stay with us mention "the train noise" so we can find the best location away from the train. We will always do our best to accommodate your needs. Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your Beaver Village experience! See you in 2014!
