Looking Glass Lodge was even better than expected for our 3-generation family's Thanksgiving holiday! From the wonderful communication before and during our stay, to letting us check in early to avoid the incoming blizzard, to someone stopping by with replacement batteries for a TV remote, the staff just couldn't do enough. The location was great and the house was even more beautiful, well-appointed and spacious than pictured. We enjoyed the brand-new large pot in the kitchen, the hot tub, the plentiful towels, paper goods etc. Would highly recommend this property. Only suggestions would be adjusting the hot-water heater since the "hot" was almost instantly very hot and could be dangerous for little ones. Not sure if irregular temperature could be improved with existing thermostat, but upstairs was usually cold (not a problem with the great bedding though!) and downstairs bedrooms were hot at night. But those certainly didn't affect our great stay and we can't thank you enough!
MANAGER COMMENTS: Terrific! We will certainly get on adjusting the hot water heater thermostat. We'll also check in on the heating to be sure something funny isn't going on there. We are all thrilled you enjoyed your stay overall and do hope to get to host you again whenever anyone in the family heads back this way. Enjoy the holidays!

We had two small families staying here for a long weekend (4 adults and 2 toddlers) and it was perfect for us! Plenty of space for the kids to play safely, a great hot tub and lots of towels, a massive deck where we could all hang out, a well appointed kitchen and bbq for family meals (though it would have been nice if there was a large pot and the silverware was all oddly tiny.) The main floor provided a great space for communal fun and then each family basically had our own floor as the master upstairs was perfect for my husband and I with our 1.5 year old in his travel crib and the lower floor was perfect for our friends to have a smaller room to themselves with their older toddler next store in a twin bed. This room could sleep 7-8 kids if you had to!
Manager Comment: Great to hear the lodge was a good space for you and you enjoyed your stay. We will look into supplementing the tiny silverware and a large pot. Come back for more family fun!

We had a great time at Looking Glass lodge. It easily accommodated 2 families and the kids had a great time sleeping in the bunk room. The coffee maker was a little leaky and took a long time to brew but everything else worked great. The hot tub was warm and clean and everything was in great shape. Would love to come back in the summer and be able to sit out on the HUGE deck to enjoy the view!!
MANAGER COMMENTS: Excellent! We'll get over to check out the coffee maker....we can't have that not working properly! Please do come back this summer....it's quite a spot for kicking back in those lazy summer months.

Great choice for a three bedroom for two families. Location was good for various activities. Called for questions/help with two issues and the attention was prompt. Well equipped kitchen for meal preparation. Exceeded expectations.
MANAGER COMMENTS: Fabulous! We are all thrilled you enjoyed staying up here with us at Looking Glass Lodge. Please do let us know when you're back this way.
By Donna, Posted: 08/13/2018
Perfect home. I spent a lot of my time sitting on the deck watching the humming birds. Customer Service was so nice and checked in with me before our stay and after our stay. Will stay again!
MANAGER COMMENTS: That's sounds so relaxing! We are so pleased it was an enjoyable stay for you. Do let us know when you travel back this way.

Excellent cabin with all the amenities. We truly enjoyed our stay there. One minor drawback, the driveway to enter is very difficult to see, especially at night. Should have the house # at the end of the driveway.
MANAGER COMMENTS: Great point! We will be sure to get a number lit up down there someway. That driveway entrance does tend to sneak up on you. We hope to host you up this way again when you come back.
By Kasey, Posted: 07/14/2018
This house was a fantastic option for our friends and us. The bunk room worked perfectly for our 5 kids. We enjoyed the proximity to beautiful scenery and numerous fun activities.
MANAGER COMMENTS: We are all so pleased to read this! Thanks Kasey and we'd love to host all of you again sometime.

This was a great house for our large crew! We enjoyed being able to all be together to share meals and games after full days of skiing. It is in a convenient spot just up behind the grocery store, so it was easy to stock up for our trip. A word of advice, definitely use the written directions from the app to find the property, and try to go to it the first time during daylight hours if possible! We had a wonderful vacation.
MANAGER COMMENTS: Great to read! We are so pleased you enjoyed. And we thank you for championing our written directions vs GPS. Sometimes the GPS gets a bit nutty up here in the sticks! Do let us know when you're back this way.
By Stacey, Posted: 02/13/2018
Nice house close to many activities with all the essentials needed during your stay.
MANAGER COMMENTS: Great to hear! Let us know when your travels bring you back this way.

First of all the people at Winter Park Lodging Company were AMAZING!!!! The house was gorgeous and clean! Loved the open spaces inside and large rooms. The hot tub was perfect at night and first thing in the mornings. Beautiful views! Enjoyed the Netflix on TV and comfy couch :). I will DEFINITELY book through Winter Park Lodging Company again and would love to stay at this house again as well!!!!

GREAT PLACE. The house had everything I would need. and was in great shape! The staff was excellent from before we arrived to following up afterward too. We had one very minor issue with the fireplace and they sent someone out immediately. Will definitely book again on our next vacation to CO. Thank You to everyone at the offices for your help!!
MANAGER'S COMMENTS...So great to hear we covered all the bases for your stay...HOME RUN! Come see us again soon.

First of all I want to thank MEG for her help. I had been looking for a place to go for 2 months and was having such a hard time coordinating the trip. When I called Winter Park Lodging Company, I told Meg my situation, what I wanted and in 15 minutes she sent me 2 options, one being the one I chose. My family enjoyed the stay. The Lodge was unbelievable!! Beautiful place, everything I needed, the Lodge had it! The rooms were very spacy. The laundry room is a BIG PLUS for my family of 7. The kitchen was beautiful!!! I kept taking pictures from all the windows of the Lodge. The grocery store, shopping mall, restaurants....etc all are very close by. I didn't need a 4x4 vehicle as the roads WERE ALWAYS very cleaned. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this place. I will definitely go back!!!
MANAGER'S COMMENTS...Meg sure does know how to help guests pick the perfect spot. We can't wait to host you and your family again.

Looking Glass Lodge worked well for our family weekend (group of four adults and two kids). We had plenty of space and all the amenities we needed. The upstairs master bedroom is HUGE and feels even more spacious with the vaulted ceiling. The downstairs bedrooms are both reasonably sized. Note that with their lower ceilings, the downstairs rooms feel a bit more like a finished basement than they do a full-on floor of a house, and the shared bath for those two rooms is a pretty standard size bathroom. We enjoyed having the private hot tub (and such an easy cover), the kitchen was well stocked, and wifi was good throughout the house. Winter Park Lodging Company was very responsive to questions and even had someone come out to deliver extra towels for us. The only negatives are super minor: it would be great to have a way to open the garage from the outside, and just a tiny bit more attention to snow removal on the deck by the hot tub would have been great (there was a well-shoveled path to get to/from the hot tub, but it was a bit narrow).
MANAGER'S COMMENTS...We are still trying to figure out a solution to the garage door issue. Garage door clickers tend to like our guests so much, they stow away in their luggage with them when they check out. Our maintenance team is going to keep a better eye on the snow around the hot tub. We don't want you to get cold feet.

Looking Glass Lodge was comfortable and well-stocked with amenities.Curiously,there was no microwave oven in the kitchen when we arrived. We mentioned this to the staff at Winter Park Lodging Company and they delivered one the next day. WPLC staff went out of their way to respond to all of our questions and concerns. Great job!
MANAGER'S COMMENTS...We are still working on the case of the missing microwave. We think a moose stopped by to make some popcorn and took it with him.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were very comfortable and the house had everything we needed. Thank you for sharing it!!

We had a great experience. Wonderful home for 2 families.
By Adrian, Posted: 01/02/2017
The house is spacious and gorgeous. It has lots of space, and it is nestled in a hill with lots of trees and great views on a big lot. It has everything you could possibly want including a hot tub. There is a bus stop about a block away to take you to the ski resort and anywhere else you want to go. Safeway is conveniently located about a mile away, too. You can't go wrong staying at Looking Glass.
MANAGER'S COMMENTS...Agreed, this is a great location at a great rate. Be sure to download the shuttle app, RIDEHOP and use the code 'lift' to find where the shuttle is in real time.

We had an awesome time. Accomodations where awesome. Much better than we expected.

The cabin was super easy to find with all of your vacation needs within minutes of your front door. Very clean, well appointed, and a very spacious rental. The view for almost every window was gorgeous!!! Future Repeat Renters, The Northway's

We really enjoyed Looking Glass Lodge.
It was very warm and inviting. It was also very clean and well stocked.
By Keidric, Posted: 02/02/2016
It was beautiful, everything was in great condition ! Only issue was fireplace didn't work.
Manager Comments: Thanks for letting us know. Our maintenance techs are addressing this currently. We hope to host you again...with fire!

This Fraser home had everything we needed to make our ski week comfortable and cozy! Easy access around the corner to the "Purple Shuttle" route, ski racks in the garage, and plenty of space for all to stow gear - extra shelves, closets, and benches. Two great bedrooms for adults, a bunk room for the kids along with a generous living room space made this house perfect for two families...and the hot tub was a treat at the end of the day. Thanks to Winter Park Lodging Company for all your helpful information at booking, convenient phone app, and attention to our needs - you made this ski trip an easy "green" on the slopes!

Our family loved our vacation and the Looking Glass Lodge. Everything was clean and neat and all was in working order. The hot tub was a big plus after a day of skiing as were the humidifiers. Easy to find and close to town. Lots of plates, glasses and mugs. A few improvements and this would be outstanding. Guests should be aware there are NO spices at all when coming -not even salt or pepper so bring those along if you plan to cook. We had to buy a bunch of spices and try to pack them or leave them. We did leave salt and pepper there. More lap quilts or blankets would be nice. We found one in the living room ottoman, but it would be nice to have a few more. A book on how to operate the fireplace and hot tub would be nice. Also some books or games would make this more homey. We brought these along with us so no worries. We had a wonderful time and would use this place again as our home base.
Manager's Comments... Great to hear you really enjoyed your stay with us. Your feedback is much appreciated and we will address your concerns with the owner. Hope to see you again.

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at the Looking Glass House in Fraser. It worked perfectly for the weekend...... The Looking Glass house was more than we expected. Great beds!!!! It is always nice to sleep well when you are away from home. It was totally clean, another plus. Winter Park Lodging Company was very responsive when called about the trash cans not being emptied. Thank you Crystal. We Loved the Hot Tub and fire pit! Plenty of room for the Seven of us. We had such a great time and we will be back next year.
