This was our second stay at the Timber Run property as a timeshare exchange. This time we stayed in the Dogwood building, and this unit was better than our previous one in Aspen building. We had a two bedroom with loft, top floor unit. The unit came with a garage (which we did not use). The outdoor hot tub was a few steps from the back entrance. The unit was very clean with new carpet. The furniture was dated but in excellent shape, and the kitchen had everything we needed. The loft was a huge master bedroom suite, complete with a sink and mini fridge. Wi-fi was available for a fee. We enjoyed the lovely gas fireplace, steam shower in one of the three baths, in-unit washer and dryer, two balconies and incredible
view. The shuttle stops right out front, and we did not rent a car for this trip. We used the public transportation for trips to Fraser for groceries, other activities, and to get to the mountain to ski. (We did rent a locker at Winter Park for the week to store our gear.) We barely heard the train a couple of times but it did not disturb our sleep. The other feature we appreciated here is the humidifier in the unit. We kept it running at full speed day and night - filling it twice daily. It sure helped us deal with the dry air.
This is not a trendy upscale place, but if you are looking for a comfortable, spacious convenient place to stay in WP you may be happy at Timber Run.
