I live in the Midwest but have skied in Colorado every Winter since 1980. In that time we have stayed in many condominiums in Steamboat and Silverthorne and enjoyed the hospitality for many years at the Gasthaus Eichler in Winter Park. The TimberHouse has become a favorite for many reasons. The location is picturesque and secluded but not as far away as most other properties, but you can ski in if you so desire. The common areas are comfortable and inviting and the children love the game room. This IS NOT a sterile institutional environment. If you love old homes and bed and breakfasts, you will enjoy your stay.
Todd Waldron has made each year a memorable stay with his personalized service and attention to detail. He provided guidance the first year that included ski rentals. The convenience of dealing with a local ski shop for the children's rentals, and the substantial discount at Alpine Sport, and the ability to have pick up and drop off is substantial. The van service to and from Winter Park is also a big help.
The food service has improved the last few years. A few of the dishes were spectacular, at any price. The food is hearty, more than adequate and home style. The rooms are comfortable and clean and our suite is quite large. Once you learn your way around the large complex, you will appreciate the ambiance. It can be dim in areas, especially at night, like any other well maintained old house.
We continue to return year after year for all these reasons. Service provided by the Timberhouse is on par with the best of destinations. The Timberhouse provides a true value in a family ski vacation. If you were to honestly tally the $ for a condominum or hotel, food costs and TIME, yes TIME. I believe you will agree. If you want gourmet meals, high thread count sheets and a valet, you will pay substantially more than a stay at the TimberHouse, but your service will be no better.
