“Not a Disappointment”
Reviewed February 27, 2011

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.

We had a three bedroom in the Aspen building and found it very comfortable. The bus to Winter Park stops right out in front and runs every 30 minutes. One can walk to restaurants a mile or just ride the bus. Bus only runs until 5 p.m. Watch out for the moose that hangs around the neighborhood. The place is not fancy but everything worked. 20.00 a week for internet and you can use computers on each 20.00 connection.

We stayed in the Aspen building at Timber Run. Timber Run was an older condo development with a convenient location close to downtown. The area was very scenic. Liked: Roomy 3 bedroom, 2 bath condo; nice location; fully equiped kitchen; free front load washer/dryer in basement; garage available for winter. Disliked: Outdated kitchen & bathrooms; lacked amenities (tennis courts closed, indoor hot tub in old basement) but did have outdoor hot tub in the other section of condos; fee for internet; thin walls, floors & ceilings; loud train went through in the middle of the night & again early morning. Overall, the condo was fine and worked well for us. Our section of condos - White Pine, Cedar, Aspen, Spruce, Birch - weren't as nice as the Dogwood, Evergreen & Vista condos on the other side of Timber Run.

Winter Park was a great place to visit. We were there in the summer and had a great time. We bought a 1/2 day pass for the Alpine Slide & other activities at the Winter Park Resort - FUN! We went to Rocky Mountain National Park, to the local aquatic center between Winter Park & Fraser, rented bikes (there are many bike trails in Winter Park), & hiked.

We stayed in the Vista at Timber Run Building. It is one of the newer ones within Timber Run. It has great access to the lift bus and the bus to Winter Parks o we didn't jhave to drive to the ski resort. the unit was quite spacious and well kept. the fireplace in the unit was a really nice amenity which we used a lot. It's a comfy, cozy place that I'd go back to again.

We had a great time! We were looking for a quite place to stay for not too much money and Timber Run was just that. We would never have known anyone else was there if it weren't for their cars. Our unit had a jetted bath tub which was perfect for a first time snowboarder. The bed was a little uncomfortable but I was tired and didn't notice. The staff at the check in were general very nice. We never noticed the train when we were in our room. We met some friend there and our place was a great little hang out. It is not secluded like the web site said but it was a little out of the way. Overall we had a great time at Timber Run and will stay there again when we go back to winter park. I would suggest it to anyone who doesn't need all the big hotel amenitys.

Timber Run has received some "bad press". Okay, so it's not the Ritz!
We stayed at Timber Run - Cedar Building during the February Break. The unit was acquired throught an RCI timeshare exchange. Although the complex is older, we found the unit clean, well-maintained, and the furnishings comfortable. It was stocked with paper products, trash bags,dish soap, etc. The linens and towels were plentiful and could be exchanged at the check-in center (downtown) at any time. Our unit was one of the most spacious accommodations we have ever stayed in. It slept our family of 8 comfortably, 2 BRs, a loft and 3 full baths. We never felt crowded. Althought the kitchen was well-stocked, the dishes and utensils were not new, perfectly matched sets (not one of our priorities).
But, we went to Winter Park to ski and this was a perfect base from which to do so.
The view from the large deck was spectacular. The gas fireplace was lovely and cozy. The free shuttle (to many destinations) runs every 30 minutes and stopped almost outside of our door. Our unit came with a garage underneath (a true benefit in mid-winter), a washer, dryer ($) and hot tub were also on the bottom level. We found these facilities to also be older but clean and well-maintained. Be forewarned, the stairs can be daunting in the high altitude!
As far as the train - you are going to hear it from almost all of the downtown Winter Park lodgings. It did rouse us a few times, but none of us felt it ruined our stay, or sleep. Perhaps with windows open in the summer it would be disturbing.
Check-in and Check-out take place in a central location downtown. The process was very efficient, and employees were friendly and helpful.
We have one complaint and that was the lack of a portable crib at the resort. Although we had made three phone calls prior to our trip, the staff at Timber Run was not only not helpful, but totally unsympathertic, and even rude, to our plight.
We did find a source through a Winter Park web-site.
So if the lap of sheer luxury is not a standard by which you judge your vacation accommodations, you should be more than happy with Timber Run. We'd return just for the view!

We are spending a week at Timber Run. The first few days we were in the Cedar Building. This building is run down. Although functional, our loft apartment that slept 8 was showing the sign of wear and tear. Lightbulbs hadn't been replaced and half the glasses were missing. The "outside" hot tub was actually in a basement room and hadn't been cleaned for quite a while. We then moved to Dogwood which was in much better shape and actually had an outside hot tub. The Condo was clean and had a washing machine. The resort bus stopped right below the condo. The really big issue with this place is that you are only 1/4 mile from a railroad crossing on what is a mainline east/west coast line. Throughout the night you hear multiple train whistles. This is likely an issue for multiple Winterpark resorts and certainly a question I would ask for any I was considering
