“Worn Out 70's Decor”
Reviewed 10 March 2009

We had a great time at the Devil's Thumb Spa and skiing at Winter Park, so all in all the activities around Winter Park are very nice. I will definitely come back to Winter Park, but will make a point to stay elsewhere.

The condo we were in was very outdated (marigold bathrooms, a VCR only attached to the pint sized TV). The bed was uncomfortable and the sofa sleeper mattress was quite stained. The sliding glass doors were covered in fingerprints and the carpet, cream colored sofa and padded dining room chairs were filthy...vacuumed sure, but sometimes that is simply not enough. There was a constant whining noise (it really sounded like a distressed dog) that was coming from the utility fixture (for water?) outside in front of the condo. It became white noise after 3 nights, but I was convinced the neighbors had left there dog too long when we first arrived.

The recreation center opened 20 minutes late and we were not told about the towel charge before hand and the late check in procedures were not clear. The only internet access available is at the recreation center.

On a positive note, the view from the back of the condo was very nice and there was a working fireplace.

Two friends and I stayed at Hi Country for a week. The location was perfect! Within easy walking distance of the bus stop and close to all types of restaurants. The condo was a 2 bedroom, 2 bath very clean and comfortable. We loved sitting on the bacony and enjoying the sight and sounds of the Fraser River directly below.
I would highly recommended Hi Country Haus.

We stayed 10 days in this condo, and it met every need.
There is a shuttle bus stop right in the parking lot, and from there you can travel for free to anywhere: skiing, shopping, grocery store, etc. Hiking trails are also nearby. The condo has two bedrooms plus a sofa-bed and two bathrooms. The balcony hangs almost right over the Fraser River, and the unit is a short walk to a movie theatre and a convenience store. The interior is casual and comfortable.

  • Liked — convenience to public transportation and scenic views at location
  • Disliked — seating in the den

Hi Country Haus couldn't have been better! From the balcony overlooking the Frasier River, my friends and I enjoyed the rippling sounds of Nature first-hand. Hiking trails, as well as the town of Winter Park, were in close proximity to the Condo. Restaurants and the bus line were in easy walking distance.

The Condo has an updated kitchen, beautifully decorated living and dining area, with a fireplace, and two very comfortable bedrooms and two bathrooms. There were only three in my group, but the Condo could easily accommodate six.

My friends and I would not hesitate to recommend this Condo to anyone.

We stayed at the Hi Country Haus 28th Feb - 7th March 2007. We had a 2 bed Condo between 4 of us and we found it to be perfectly adequate. It's not a luxury type of place to stay but the condo was clean and in good repair. Bathroom was a little dated if i was being picky and the condo was advertised by the tour operator as for 6, no way would you have enough room for 6. Could have also done with a 2nd bathroom but that's being really picky! We were in building 7 which is right at the end of the complex, and although the ski bus stopped right outside our block we did have to do a fair bit of walking, especially in the evening. Our Condo had TV/DVD player which also played music CD's, open fire very welcome as we had a few days where it was -25c with an even lower wind chill!!!!! Kitchen was well stocked with all the usuals. We did find the ski bus a bit unreliable at times but if you have a chilled out attitude to it it's not so bad! Can recommend Hernando's pizza (just round the corner from the Condo's), best pizza I've had in a while including in Italy!!
Skiing is good in WP although weekends get very busy, so expect to que, especially if the weather is nice. Mountain is split into 2, Mary Jane full of moguls, not sure if some of this is keeping the grooming costs down, even some of the blue's had moguls! We also found a lot of the greens which you need to use to get across the mountain very flat, to the point some of it was positively uphill and in fresh powder that gets hard work.
The town itself is quiet and is nowhere near as lively as Breckenridge and we were there in spring break. A lot of the restaurants close at about 9pm, even some of the bars close early, can recommend untamed steak house as we saw a very good live band there.
All in all would visit WP again and stay at Hi Country Haus, if you're going from the UK check out the bargains with Crystal Ski - we got a week for £380! You'd pay that to go to Europe and you've no guarantee of snow!!

this place is decorated in early 70s...It was cold when we were there and the place was freezing. We had Ice in the bath tub from a leak that would not stop.

no maid service... we left some bottles and cans and they charged us an extra 75 bucks...nice....

best thing that can be said for this joint is that it is cheap and you can walk to some restaurants and nite spots which is saying alot for winter park....

if you are there to ski on a budget and do not care about ambiance this is the spot.....
