Reviews of Vasquez Retreat
We Highly Recommend This Home
Reviewed by Pastor Kent J on 3/26/2014
We recently had a 5 night stay at the Vasquez Retreat where we enjoyed snowmobiling, skiing, and shopping. The accommodations were tremendous, providing easy access to area attractions. The home was comfortable, spacious and everything that could be expected in a mountain retreat. Winter Park Lodging Company was a pleasure to work with and assisted us with tickets and equipment rentals.
great stay
Reviewed by drew on 2/21/2014
Vasquez Retreat is a spacious house off the beaten path but close enough to main st. This is a second year we have rented the house and it never lets us down. I highly recommend this place.
Wonderful
Reviewed by Marlo on 2/20/2014
The rental process was easy and efficient; staff were extremely prompt, professional and courteous. The house is amazing. Spacious for a family get together with everything we needed. Location is perfect to easily get to ski shops, grocery store and restaurants. The hot tub and sauna were in perfect working order. We got in the hot tub for a soak and then into the dry sauna to dry off a little while staying cozy warm. Large great room with large dining table for meals and games with our family. The best thing this property offers: the ski shuttle picks you up at the end of the driveway-just steps from the front door!
Calming and Close!
Reviewed by Event Planner on 1/30/2014
This home is spacious, warm, and homey with everything needed to experience a wonderful time for a large group.Super close to ski transportation and downtown Winter Park.The owners are very responsible and quick to respond to concerns.
Great Property
Reviewed by Brian on 12/26/2013
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!!
Reviewed by Brittany on 12/19/2013
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.
Manager's Response:

Wonderful Winter Park Retreat
Reviewed by Amy B. on 12/12/2013
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.
Manager's 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
Reviewed by The McSpadden Family on 8/14/2013
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.
Manager's 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
Reviewed by dm on 4/11/2013
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
Reviewed by Michael Tuchmann on 8/9/2012
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.
It was a fabulous place to stay!
Reviewed by Polly Fiedler on 7/29/2012
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.
Manager's 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!
Reviewed by Cohen's and Cappelli's on 4/4/2012
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
Reviewed by Zack on 2/15/2012
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!
Reviewed by Odell Family on 1/26/2012
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.
Reviewed by Jan Brandt on 1/5/2012
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.
