By Margery, Posted: 01/24/2020We had a wonderful stay at Balsh Hideaway. Everything was clean, convenient and comfortable. We enjoyed the location, in a walkable neighborhood, sledding down the side hill with available sleds. Thank you! We might like to make a suggestion- the chairs at the table were very loud and heavy creating loud screeching noises on the floor, thus a sleeping child was awakened. Perhaps a change out to more comfortable chairs, (flat wooden seats) or to add felted feet to the chairs to reduce the scrapping noises. Thank you. We look forward to returning to WinterPark again next year.
MANAGER COMMENTS: Got it. Thanks for the heads up on that Margery. We'll see about quieting those loud chairs. Please let us know when you need to plan next years stay.
By Jill, Posted: 01/19/2020We recently stayed at Balsh Hideaway for a family ski vacation. We originally booked a different unit with another lodging company, A mistake will we will not make again! When we arrived at the place we originally booked with the other company, it was filthy to the extent we were not comfortable staying there with our children. After a lack of response from that company, we reached out immediately to Winter Park Lodging Company as we had many enjoyable experiences with them in the past. Within 45 minutes, they had found us a place, Balsh Hideaway, and had made sure it was ready to go! We felt such a relief knowing that our family vacation wasn't going to be ruined due to substandard service of the previous lodging company. The unit itself was spacious, clean, comfortable and conveniently located yet somehow managing to be a bit secluded which was nice. It worked well for our family and our dog and we are staying again there in a week when we come back up. We can't thank Winter Park Lodging Company enough for your five star service and commitment to the customer experience. You truly did save our vacation!
MANAGER COMMENTS: Well that was all our pleasure Jill. So pleased we could get you into a nice spot that worked well for all, including the pooch! We are so pleased you thought of us and we hope to continue hosting memorable stays for you and your family.
By Anne, Posted: 08/28/2019We had a terrific experience working with this company. The customer service was exceptional. We found the home spotless and it met our needs perfectly. This is a comfortable, well-appointed home that was a pleasure to stay in. All the information we needed was on the app - so convenient. I highly recommend Winter Park Lodging Company
Manager Comment: Thank you for those kind words. We are glad we could give you such a great experience. Come again soon.
By John, Posted: 08/23/2019House was clean and ready for guests when we arrived. Everything was as advertised and anytime we reached out to the Winter Park Lodging Co. their personnel was extremely polite and accommodating. Would recommend the home and the company without any hesitation.
Manager Comment: And don't you hesitate to come back again soon for another visit!
By Laura, Posted: 04/08/2019This house was perfect! It's not only such a cute house but has everything you need. We were even welcomed with some treats for our pups! The drive to Winter Park to ski was quick and easy. We couldn't have asked for a better place and will definitely return!
MANAGER COMMENTS: Terrific! We are all so pleased Balsh Hideaway worked well for you. We would love to host you again whenever your travels bring you back this way.
By Cara, Posted: 03/26/2019Had an amazing time, service was impressive!
MANAGER COMMENTS: So great to hear! We appreciate you sharing that with us. Thank you Cara.
By Patrick, Posted: 03/19/2019We stayed in a beautiful home in Fraser (225 Balsh) and loved it! We have older kids and they had privacy on the lower level while my wife and I stayed in the upper level master suite. The private hot tub got plenty of use and the Winter Park shuttle "The Lift" stopped just around the corner. We will definitely be back!
MANAGER COMMENTS: Awesome! Thanks for sharing your stay with us Patrick. The home is designed well for folks to have their own space. Give us a holler when you're back this way.
By Brent, Posted: 02/24/2019We had a great time in Fraser. Some skied and some did not making this a great place for all.

MANAGER COMMENTS: Wonderful! So pleased we could host you again John. We look forward to next years' trip. Enjoy your holidays!
By Matt, Posted: 11/26/2018The hot water didn’t work at first but was fixed promptly. Also could have used garage door openers. Other than that our stay was perfect. We loved the house and the service was prompt when we needed it. We will come back
MANAGER COMMENTS: We are pleased we could get the hot water up and running quickly for you. Cold showers....ugh! We would love to provide all guests with garage door openers however they tend to leave with guests, totally innocently, we know, but it gets pricey! Hope to host you up this way again.

We will be back and will let all our friends know too. Thank you!
