Property Reviews 
Great Property
Brian from Wayne, NJ,
Stayed for 0 days in December, 2013
Well stocked home, nicely furnished, very clean, dozens of fun board games to play. Beds are comfy. Sauna is very handy when coming in from spending time in the snow. The "outside fire pit" is inconveniently placed and nearly impossible to find under the snow. It would have been helpful if they had shoveled a path to it. There is only one bench there, so after you make the little hike up the hill to get there, only 3 of your 12+ will be able to sit. I'd strongly recommend the owner improve this one aspect. Other than that it was a very nice stay.

Best condo I've ever stayed in!!
Brittany from Boulder, CO,
Stayed for 0 days in December, 2013
The Vasquez retreat is truly a gem. The 4 stories, and 5 bedrooms make for a great way to have a lot of people in one place with some added privacy. The kitchen is amazing! They have everything you could possibly need including a kitchen aid, coffee maker, lots of pots and pans and even a full spice rack. If you want to feel like you're living the high life even if it's for one weekend, this is the spot.

Property Manager Response:
Hello! Just a quick note to say 'Thank-you!' for reviewing your stay at Vazquez Retreat, and we are delighted that you had a great trip to Winter Park. If you ever decide to visit the area again, we'd love to host your stay, and will take this opportunity to remind you that all of our return guests enjoy a lifelong 15% discount on all future lodging at Winter Park Lodging Company.

Thanks again!

Wonderful Winter Park Retreat
Amy B. from Denver,
Stayed for 0 days in December, 2013
Me and my husband, along with some friends and family stayed in the retreat the first weekend of December. We had an absolutely wonderful time. The cabin was big enough for the 11house of us and I dont see a problem in the fture bringing more people with us. The only issue we had was the propane grill was almost completely empty so it was difficult to grill our steals. But all in all the trip was wonderful and we will definitely be going back.

Property Manager Response:
Thanks for posting the great photo! We are happy to bring you a new propane tank anytime during your stay for no charge. Just give us a ring next time!

Thank you, Sarah, Owner, WPLC

Best all-Around Value of any Vacation Home We've Rented
The McSpadden Family from Edmond, OK,
Stayed for 0 days in August, 2013
Vasquez Retreat was fantastic and perfect for us. We have a family of 6 and the home had more room than we could use. Two families our size could easily share the home and have plenty of room. Not only was the home great, but the service we received from Wplc was well above any other rental company we've used in Winter Park as well as in Maine or Florida, the other two states where we regularly rent homes. The home is nicely furnished and comfortable. We would equate it to a 3 star+ - 4 star hotel. The hot tub, grill, fire pit, and land surrounding the house made not only the inside, but the outside useable for our family. The kitchen was well equipped for the type of cooking the average person would do on vacation and all bedrooms were comfortable, roomy, and nicely decorated. A note for families with small children: At Vasquez Retreat you do not have to worry about small objects and knick knacks all over the home which to us was a blessing. Plenty of games, movies, and evening entertainment. One nice upgrade would be a larger cable TV package with some kid-friendly channels. Wireless internet was fast and reliable for those of you who have to work a bit on vacation. The newly remodeled downstairs shower is Won-der-ful!!! The home is less than 5 minutes from downtown Winter Park, but you feel like you're miles away from anything regarding tourists or crowds. One of our favorite things to do was building a fire, eating s'mores, watching the sunset, then jumping in the hot tub when it got cool in the evening. One consideration you might take into account is proximity to the Winter Park ski area. I do believe there is shuttle service. I've tried to come up with constructive criticisms that would be objective rather than simply something our family, but not necessarily others, would like to change or add to the home. I honestly cannot come up with any. Please give this home serious consideration for your stay in Winter Park. It's a great place.

Property Manager Response:
Bart,

thank you so much for taking the time to write this review, it means a lot to us that you loved Vasquez Retreat and enjoyed all the fun activities here in our little mountain town of Winter Park.

It was our complete pleasure to host your stay and we'd love to see you all back up here for another visit in the future (don't forget to mention that you've stayed with us before to get your 15% return guest discount).

On a side note, you are absolutely right in your belief that the free winter shuttle service to the ski area stops right at the bottom of the driveway, such a bonus when you're juggling kids and ski gear!

Thank you for being a guest of Winter Park Lodging Company.

Best wishes
Sarah Bradford,
Owner, Winter Park Lodging Company

Vasquez Retreat
dm from Iowa,
Stayed for 0 days in March, 2013
Had a wonderful time at Vasquez Retreat. The house was located just a few blocks from the main street in Winter Park and was easy and convenient to get to the slopes. The house itself was huge and worked well for the 15 people (4 families) that stayed there. The open concept on the main floor provided enough space without feeling crowded. The house was furnished very nice(other than a little dust.) There was adequate parking and a beautiful grove of trees behind the house. Downfalls - the basement heat was not well regulated! It was freezing!! during the day and then became very warm during the night. The basement bathroom was beautiful but the cold made it hard to use! They did provide space heaters for the two bedrooms downstairs and gave instructions to leave the bedroom doors shut but it was not enough to warm up the bedrooms during the day. Also, the stairs leading to the top upstairs loft (4 twin beds)were fine for teenagers but the steepness of them would make it difficult for older people and/or young children. The ice machine was not working and the hottub seemed to overheat but we never called for service so can't really complain. Winter Park Lodging is great to work with and I'm sure they would have addressed our issues if they could.

Vasquez Retreat home is beautiful. Winter Park Lodging helped us
Michael Tuchmann from Springfield IL,
Stayed for 0 days in July, 2012
My family loves Colorado and the Fraser valley area. Vasquez Retreat is a beautiful home and was the perfect place for 12 of us to stay. Plenty of room, wireless internet, and a full kitchen. It is not great for very young children as there is lots of steps up and down the four levels.
 
Overall Satisfacation

It was a fabulous place to stay!
Polly Fiedler from Colorado Springs, CO,
Stayed for 0 days in July, 2012
The place was beautiful and accommodated us well, nicely situated close to town but off the beaten track and trails outside the door. We had a few mechanical issues but the lodging company took care of them immediately, very responsive. The only negative is that it is very close to the train tracks and the train whistle blows about every two hours all day and night. But we decided, that with ear plugs, we would stay at this place again because all the other positives outweigh that.

Property Manager Response:
We're happy to hear you all enjoyed your stay and want to come back to Vasquez Retreat. As of August 2012, the railroad and town of Winter Park successfully established a "Train Quiet Zone" that prevents the trains whistle blowing in this area. It is much quieter now and there is no need for earplugs on your next stay. We hope to see you again in the near future!

Great vacation!
Cohen's and Cappelli's from Sarasota, Fl,
Stayed for 0 days in March, 2012
The location of the home was great, private, but still close to grocery, rest. shopping. The home had everything we needed and was great for the kids to play in upstairs while adults enjoyed den area. The service was great. On the first day we realized we didn't have a blow dryer...we called rental company and had a dryer delivered to our door within 16 mins. from call. They were very helpful with all sorts of occomodations if we needed anything.

Great spot for a big group
Zack from Denver,
Stayed for 0 days in February, 2012
Vasquez was perfect for our group of 9 adults for a long weekend. Lots of space to hang out and relax. Convenient to town and the resort. The owners have clearly done a great job with the renovations. The setting is fantastic, surrounded by woods and nicely separated from other houses. Only four stars because the bedrooms are spread across 4 floors, and there are only 3 bathrooms to go with sleeping area for about 15. Regardless, highly recommended for a big group!

Wonderful weekend!
Odell Family from Canyon, TX,
Stayed for 0 days in January, 2012
We came for a weekend ski trip with the kids. We had plenty of room and beautiful accommodations. The first morning at breakfast - two moose were right outside our window looking in! What a beautiful sight. Snow every day and the staff cleaned off our deck and drive both days. Winter Park Lodging Company made sure we had everything we needed. The kitchen had better pots and pans than I have. They went above and beyond to make our stay terrific. We will definitely come back!

We all had a fabulous time--everything was perfect.
Jan Brandt from Cedar Rapids, IA,
Stayed for 0 days in December, 2011
This was a perfect place for us to stay. There were 13 of us and there would have been room for more. This house was just beautiful and it had everything in it that we needed and more. We received wonderful service from the Winterpark Lodge Staff. They were more than willing to answer any question/s we had. The location was just perfect--close to everything! I can't say what we liked the best because everything was perfect. There was nothing about this place that we didn't like. Keep up the good work. We also appreciated the friendliness that the Winterpark Lodge Staff gave us. What a great bunch of people! Thanks for a wonderful time.
