The lodge is not located close to the slopes nor downtown but a free van service to the base station (about 10 minutes away) was provided and worked fine for us.
Coming back from Main Street one afternoon we phoned for the van but that didn't work out and we had to take the local free bus. Bus stop is right outside the lodge.

The lodge itself gives a very warm homely feeling. Lots of wood, carpet, real open log fire and cozy sitting area.
Except us there were only 2 other guests in the lodge but on our third day a large group of people came to stay for 1 night and that particular evening we found out that there was also a nice bar (although drinks could be bought anyway) and another log fire downstairs as well as a games room. Maybe only open for groups, we don’t know.
We had booked 1 room for the three of us but Jeannine (the owner) immediately offered us 2 adjacent rooms with connecting door because the lodge was nearly empty. No extra cost!
Both these rooms had a sliding door out to the porch. The rooms were of a good size considering we had skiing stuff with us and lots of luggage because we were going to be travelling around for 2 weeks.
The ski room was not heated so we took our inner ski boots into our rooms overnight to dry.
The jets in the hot tub didn’t seem to work properly. The water was too warm (over 100 degrees) for us anyway so we didn’t bother asking about it.

The breakfasts and dinners were of excellent quality, quantity and variety!
Coffee, tea and hot chocolate was available throughout the whole day and was complimentary.

The staff was very friendly and relaxed and did well in what they were meant to be doing. Those who were not working joined us for breakfast/dinner.

Jeannine told us one morning she spotted a moose in the woods and took us and one employee in her own car to go and see it. That is what we call doing something special for your guests: moose safari. Great.

A great place to make memories. Staff had outstanding service, always asking if we needed anything. We were waited on hand and foot. They were very accommadating, making you feel at home and pampered. Food was delicious! A fun atmosphere to enjoy a meal. We had an updated room which was great!! My boys enjoyed the bunks and game room. The extra attention to detail was a welcomed treat. We always looked forward to the homemade cookies at 3pm. We were there for Christmas so the lodge was nicely decorated with two Christmas trees. We were shuttled to the mountain on Christmas eve for the Parade of lights. A must see. Thanks everyone at Woodspur. You made a lasting good impression. Hope to plan another ski vacation here again.

My family just returned home from the best ski vacation we have ever had. We love staying at the Woodspur and can't wait to go back. The second you walk in the door, your entire family is welcomed. My kids (9, 7, 2) jumped right in and played with the other kids. They had the best time running around and they are treated so well by Jimmy, Jeannine and their entire crew. I can tell you after a long day of skiing with the kids, to have a little break is heaven. The food is so great and it is so easy with kids. If you stay at a condo, you are cooking & cleaning the entire time and no homemade cookies waiting for you! If you are planning a family ski trip to Winter Park, don't even think about going anywhere else!

Room Tip: Call Jeannine and tell her what your needs are, she will do anything she can to get your family in t...

Woodspur Lodge is like a second home to me. My family has been coming to Winter Park for our Christmas vacation every year since the 70s, and ever since the Woodspur Lodge tradition started, we haven't stayed anywhere else...and wouldn't want to.

The staff is so friendly and really laid back. They cook breakfast and dinner each day, which is included with your stay, and it's ALWAYS amazing and one of my favorite parts of staying at Woodspur. The staff rings a dinner bell right on the dot every night, and it's like a big family gathers in the dining room together to eat. If it's not dinner or breakfast time, you can always wander into the room stocked with hot chocolate, tea, coffee, and fresh baked cookies.

Woodspur also has two hot tubs that are located at the ends of the lodge, which are great after a long day on the slopes. And the rooms are so cozy, each one designed as if you're in your own little cabin.

Woodspur also has one of the best views in the valley. If you step out onto the top deck, you can see for miles, scenes of the snow covered trees and mountains.

In addition, downstairs there is a small bar, another fireplace (there's also one upstairs), and a game room with a pool table and darts, friendly for all ages. That room is actually where I first learned to play pool.

When you're ready to leave the lodge and hit the slopes, Woodspur has its own personal shuttle services which drop you off and pick you up each day.

I can't imagine ever staying anywhere else with my family in Winter Park. Woodspur has got it all. I really feel like family there.

We held a family reunion July 2010 for 80 people at this lodge. It was an almost perfect venue for our event. We had it to ourselves. They served us wonderful meals on time and the accomodations were just right for our group. They were helpful in advising us of what activities were available in the area. It has a large gathering room as well as a craft/game room. We held a talent show in the bar area with the piano. There were horshoes available. There was a pool room however, the equipment was in very bad shape. The hot tubs were available to us and were clean. I must say, it was a near perfect stay until we got home and found out they had used our damage deposit in an unbusiness like manner. They had an upcoming wedding and decided to have the carpets cleaned and used our damage deposit as a cleaning deposit and did not even notify us. Needless to say we were disappointed after having such a wonderful time while there.

Room Tip: There are old rooms and newer updated rooms so you would have to pick and choose

We have been staying at the Woodspur Lodge for several years and have always enjoyed the experience, that's why we return each year. We arrive by Amtrak. They pick us up at the station and deliver us back when we leave. The meals are exceptional - great quality and quantity. In addition, there are always "sweet treats" and a warm drink waiting for us when we return from the slopes. The lodge is very comfortable and has a great welcoming personality. The staff is friendly and accommodating always willing to make an extra effort to help you enjoy your time in the mountains. It's the only lodge at Winter Park where my wife wants to stay.
