Founders Pointe
Reviewed 31 December 2012

This was my families first time to Winter Park and we stayed at the Founder's Point condominiums over the Christmas Holiday. We found the facilities to be clean, well maintained, and within easy walking distance (even in ski boots) of the village and lifts. The condo was well appointed with all the utensils, pots, pans, plates, etc... In short, we had everything a family of four would need for our five day stay. We were on the fifth floor in condo 4573. The ski lockers on the first floor, just off the entry way, were a real convenience and allowed us to quickly dump our gear off, before heading upstairs. Access to the huge hot tub was easy and a welcomed respite after a hard day on the slopes. There were always plenty of towels just inside the doorway when using the Jacuzzi and drying off after a nice soak. Parking was inside and heated and plenty of spots were available even during this busy season.

If there were to be any one thing that I would improve on, it would be that there was limited storage space for “Food Stuffs” inside the condo itself. The refrigerator in our unit was small but held our eggs, bacon, juice soda, waters and butter. There’s a small Freezer as well. We ended up utilizing one of the closets for “overflow” (Extra sodas and water).

All in all we were incredibly happy with our stay at Founder’s Point and look forward to spending next year there as well.

We stayed 3 nights here in WP in early Dec. Room was clean, fireplace was cozy, right across the street from resort shopping and food (at least until 5pm - after that it's dead in early Dec - even on Sat). Garage parking is $14/day but heated and worth it. Great place.

We stayed 1 night in Winter Park and enjoyed the laid back atmosphere here. The room was plenty spacious enough for the 2 of us. There are plenty of things to do close by within walking distance. Little place across the small pond is called Goody's. We ate dessert the night we were there and breakfast the next morning. Excellent! Enjoyed our stay!

We arrived late at night having travelled all day, at first I was a little disappointed as I thought we were staying Fraser crossing, but the next day I realised how lucky we were , we were in an end condo with our own separate entrance. It was peaceful and quiet and spacious. The only downside is when you are walking back with your skis and pass Fraser crossing. The condo was cleaned regularly, towels changed, coffee replaced along with to els. Nothing like staying in France!

Great location, clean, very nice rooms, fully equipped kitchen, We had a blast!!! The only reason I gave Founder's Pointe a 4 out of 5 was that the noise (ski boots and kids) in the hallway started around 6 am in the morning and was incredibly loud. Other than that the staff was very friendly and helpful, the location and amenities were fabulous, and my particular point of note was the bed and bedding - excellent!

Room Tip: Park on level 1. The ski lockers are on that floor as well as the main entrance / exit to the mounta...

My family just returned from a seven day stay at FP condos. In a nutshell it was an incredible experience. The condos are new, well planned out and clean. We stayed in a two bed, two bath that looked out onto the ice skating pond. We were literally 100 yards from ski rental, private lesson center and main chair lift. The kitchen was well equipped and even had its own washer and dryer. We have stayed at condos in several ski resorts, but this was by far the best of them all. Would highly recommend.

Only minus was a daily parking fee of $14 which was not disclosed until checkout. Seems rather ticky-tack.

Just got here but happy with our unit # 4466, a one bedroom unit. We are the type who want to ski all day. We take lunch at our condo to save a few bucks but eat out a few nights when we have the energy. We like how modern the unit is. Wish we had a washer/dryer in the unit and the fridge was s bit bigger. But so far so good.
