“Base Camp 472--We will Be Back!”
Reviewed July 26, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

What a great vacation rental. After the beautiful 2 hour drive to Winter park from Denver, we couldn'thave been happier! This is a wonderful place! From the large gorgeous picturesque windows, open floor plan, hot tub and gas grill on the large deck to the somewhat stocked kitchen and comfy bedrooms. Several fireplaces and the elevator that serviced each of the 5 floors, we were living the life while attending the 2012 Winter Park Jazz Festival--which also was wonderful!

There were a couple of drawbacks and that was that all of the televisions didn't work, but we had about 6 or 7 and the others worked. The outdoor fireplace was not working, and we couldn't find the mixer to mix our homemade cookies, cake and biscuits. But we made do. Hopefully, they will correct these small deficiencies before we return again. We weren't watching much TV anyway, though I missed my cooking shows on Sunday night. We received a small credit for the televisions not working. And we did play CDs and an Ipod on the component system. I was in the hot tub every day.

There is a little creek that runs down the back and side of the house. When it rained which it did every afternoon there was a little waterfall in the creek. There is also a litlle hiking trail that takes you to the top of one of the slopes on the other side of the house, but there is a warning sign that you hike at your own risk due to the altitude as you go higher up.

Of course the house was a little pricier to due the Jazz Festival, but the prices fluctuate throughout the year. I highly recommend this houe. It was really really great!

Management Response
Feb 22, 2012
Thank you for the review. The home is the nicest in Winter Park and the closest to ski in/out as you can get in Winter Park as far as four bedrooms go, but yes, you have to walk a path and climb up 2 flights of outdoor stairs to the trail that takes you to the base so the shuttle is the way to go for little kids.

We apologize for that water leak and for the inconvenience. We did get it fixed as soon as it was reported, but not what you want to hear in the night, we agree!

Thank you,
Sarah, owner, Winter Park Lodging Company
