We were all a little surprised there was no air conditioning, but we adjusted and except for the noise of all the fans running, sleeping was not a big problem. The house was more than adequate and the location suited all our needs. Unfortunately I suffered from altitude sickness and several others had headaches while there and after returning to their homes. Of course, the illnesses had nothing to do with the house - just the altitude.
Manager Comment: With the cool mountain air, none of our properties have AC. We open up the windows at night and close the blinds on the sunny side during the day to balance the temps. Sorry to hear about the altitude sickness. Before your next visit, start drinking lots of water a few days in advance. That seems to help combat the symptoms most of the time.

This was our second stay at Trout Creek Lodge. There is so much room for everyone. Plenty of beds, nice bathrooms, and various areas to gather. The teen grand-kids found lots to do inside and outside. The kitchen has every tool and small appliance you could need and is big enough for 4 "cooks" to work together. And the downstairs kitchen comes in handy for extra cooking and refrigerator space. The Winter Park Lodging Company is so easy to work with and very responsive to messages.
MANAGER COMMENTS: We love hearing this! Thank you, Kathy for staying with us a second time. We also love the spaciousness of Trout Creek Lodge. Let us know when your travels bring you back to the mountains. We'd love to host you and your family again soon.

Everything was as presented and everything went as expected. Minor issues were addressed very promptly. Thank you.
MANAGER COMMENTS: Thanks for sharing your stay with us Joe. So sorry for the minor issues but glad we could get those addressed for you quickly.

Everything about our stay with Winter Park Lodging Company was excellent. As soon as we booked the property, the customer service team was in touch and kept that up throughout our entire stay. They made sure we had everything we needed when we checked in and called to make sure we had a great time after we checked out. The house itself was fantastic and perfect for our crew, which included quite a few kids. There were two completely stocked kitchens; plenty of beds and bathrooms; board games; blankets; activities like pool, air hockey, foosball, etc. The location is perfect for anyone looking to enjoy all Winter Park has to offer. It's close to a bus stop but also just a short, easy drive to either of the main ski resorts. The only negative was that one of the bedrooms did not have a door so the people in that room didn't have any privacy. There were six other bedrooms (with doors) and bunk beds in the loft space so it wasn't an issue for our group but would have been good to know ahead of time. I highly recommend the Trout Creek Lodge and Winter Park Lodging Company to anyone! We can't wait to come back next year!
MANAGER COMMENTS: Fantasitc! At the Trout Creek Lodge you don't even have to leave....so much to do just in the home! We are so pleased everyone enjoyed it and we'd love to host you when you come back this way. The upstairs bunkroom doesn't have a door by design as I suppose it was always meant as a kids bunk area. So sorry if the floorplan layout made it appear differently.

The Trout Creek home was the perfect place for our first family Christmas vacation. This home was beautiful and had plenty of room for all of us. Both kitchens were fully stocked with everything we needed. The Winter Park Lodging Company staff was great to work with and very accommodating!
MANAGER COMMENTS: Wonderful! Thanks so much for choosing to spend your precious holiday time with us. We would love to host you all again for your next trip.
By Lora, Posted: 12/06/2018
This home was beautiful and had everything our large group needed. The management company was so nice and attentive. A wonderful experience from beginning to end.
MANAGER COMMENTS: Terrific! We are all so thrilled to read this Lora. Thanks for staying with us and let us know when we can host you again.
By Molly, Posted: 10/23/2018
Amazing house with plenty of space for large groups. Well kept, stocked and ready for a get away. Winter Park Lodging was flexible on check-in and check-out making this a stress free trip. And as a finishing touch they left a thoughtful gift for the birthday girl. Great overall experience!
MANAGER COMMENTS: Terrific! We are all so pleased it worked well for your family and the special birthday get away. Do let us know when anyone comes back up this way. We'd love to host you again.

Twenty-Eight of us were at Trout Creek lodge for the weekend to celebrate our 25th high school reunion and the entire experience was amazing. Simply the best, better than all the rest. Ample parking space in the driveway for the 10 plus vehicles we arrived in, and the easy self-check-in and check-out (keypad code) made the logistics of arrival and departure hassle free. Every information was available at a tip of a finger accessible via an app on a smart phone. How remarkable. The amenities were awesome and generous: comfortable beds (and couches and beanbags for those who did not make it to beds), sufficient sundries in kitchen and bathrooms, and enough bathrooms for a big group that needed it at all odd hours. TV in almost all the rooms was an overkill but you have it if you need it. 80-inch monitor in both the living rooms enriched our stay with pre- hooked cables to watch sporting events. Two full kitchens with all the state of the art pre-stocked silverware and every imaginable item you needed was at your disposal. The hot tub outside was a luxury that we felt pampered. The public spaces are designed beautifully, and there is a flow to the place that is very conducive to a big gathering. You could all get together for an impromptu karaoke in the basement or swap old stories and reminisce till the sun came up through the living room windows. Or break into small groups around the shuffleboard, pool table, back-porch or barbecue. The sporting amenities with games like fuss ball, air hockey, pool table, kids climbing wall, slide, X-box 360, Play Station added icing to the cake. The downside to the open living space was that sound carried very easily to all rooms, but it was more of an amusement than a nuisance Advertised to its 100% accuracy of “PLAY HARD, REST EASY”. The location too, contributed to the richness of our experience. Winter Park is beautiful and the view was framed perfectly by picture windows and wrap-around porch. Lovely hiking right from the doorsteps, and less than an hour’s drive to Rocky Mountain National Park or very pretty Georgetown. Above all, the customer service topped the chart. Kudos and “Hats off” to Ms. Jill for going above and beyond in making sure all our questions were answered and responded to instantly. Very responsive, instant communication. Emailing the management (Guest Experience Team) felt like we were texting with to the minute responses. How incredible. Guest Experience Team members checked in on us before the actual check in as well as after the check out. Any minor issues during the stay was instantly responded with dispatched technician to address the needs with afterhours support in place. Are you kidding me? Couple of items that can be fixed for future residents: Small issue experienced was, we did not have access to the Wi-Fi and when we called in, they immediately dispatched a technician and provided us with a Verizon hot spot. We received a follow up thank you email offering us an additional 15% discount for future stay and “YES” we plan on using the offer. Overall, Trout Creek Lodge played a significant role in making our gathering a truly memorable one and we are very grateful.
MANAGER COMMENTS: Outstanding! We are all so thrilled everyone enjoyed the Trout Creek Lodge with us and it worked well for your special group. What a fantastic get together for all of you! We will gladly host you all again Navin. Please give us a call next time anyone from "Team Reunion" comes out this way. We have trumped the wifi concern so thank you for letting us know.
By Talia, Posted: 04/27/2018
This home is incredible! 2 full kitchens which was awesome so we could just move prep stations for each meal. Worked well for our large group of 26 folks. Very families friendly layout for all. Kids could stay incredibly busy downstairs with all the game tables and hang out area. Superb location to easily access all of Winter Park and we even drove up to Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park....only like a 50 min drive. Thanks for hosting us!
MANAGER COMMENTS: That's what we love to hear! The Trout Creek Lodge is a tremendous home and we're so glad you got to enjoy it with us. Do let us know when you travel back this way.
By Collin, Posted: 03/09/2018
We had a great experience staying at the Trout Creek Lodge! It was an incredible home and the customer assistants at Winter Park Lodging Company were very helpful and personable.
MANAGER COMMENTS: We are all so pleased to hear this. Thanks for letting us know and we hope to host you again.
By Terri, Posted: 01/24/2018
Trout Creek Lodge was perfect for our large group. We had 14 people however this was for a corporate training so I couldn't have folks sharing beds. This was a great layout for us. The two full kitchens were well stocked with equipment so my private chef had what she needed. I would definitely rent this property again. And I've used Winter Park Lodging Company many times. They are always exceptional in their service.
MANAGER COMMENTS: That's wonderful! We are thrilled the home worked well for your group. Always great when folks can spread out some. Thank you so much for letting us know and we hope to get to host your training group again.

We booked Trout Creek Lodge for a small wedding/elopement celebration between us and our family and close friends, and had a total of 25 people staying in the lodge. It was even better than we imagined and even bigger and more beautiful than the pictures! The beds were so comfortable and the whole house was cozy and very nice and well kept and clean. All of the amenities like the game room and TV's and the hot tub were such fun bonuses that everyone enjoyed during their stay. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils for both cooking and eating for a large group, plenty of plates, bowls, cups, etc. The house was spacious enough to hold a large group without ever feeling cramped. The large beautiful dining table and the bar off of the kitchen with bar stools was especially wonderful for everyone to spread around and eat together and still feel like they were all together for the meals. The huge deck was a hit for hanging out, and everyone just loved the beautiful view and the quiet neighborhood. We had an absolute blast and everyone that stayed is already talking about booking the lodge themselves for future events and get-togethers. This was the perfect lodge for a Winter Park getaway!! Winter Park Lodging Company was incredibly helpful and hospitable, and were quick to respond if we had a question or problem. We highly recommended this lodge and booking through Winter Park Lodging Company!!
MANAGER COMMENTS: Fabulous! We are so pleased that Trout Creek Lodge was a good fit for your group. It is an exceptional home all around. Please contact us if we can help you or anyone else in the group with any future stays in Winter Park....we'd love to host you again!

Trout creek lodge was a wonderful place for our family reunion! It accommodated all our families with kids of all ages very well, and the play area downstairs was great for all ages! It would be helpful to have a more specific list of what is in the kitchen (it had several crockpots, griddles, etc...) so we wouldn't have had to bring as much. It also would be helpful if the email on things to do came earlier, and if there was more info on things to do and group discounts, the advertised prices of things were too high for a group and it was hard to find any group discounts.
MANAGER'S COMMENTS...How great to share that quality time with the whole family. If you ever are wondering what you can expect to find in a property, give us a call and we can help with the inventory. We haven't found many activities that offer group discounts, but you can always find things to do in our app. Get that loaded right away and you'll have everything you need for your upcoming arrival.
By Lynn, Posted: 07/10/2017
We held a family reunion here and it's the best place ever! The rooms are more spacious than the pictures depict, the supplies (tp, paper towels, etc.) are generous and the views AMAZING! We will definitely return!
MANAGER'S COMMENTS...So great to be a part of your family reunion. Glad we could "supply" you with a fun stay. We would love to host you every year. Come back soon.
By Eric, Posted: 06/08/2017
Hi There - I want to thank the Winter Park Lodging Company. Our stay was by far the best we've had. From the start when Sam helped me find a house big enough for all of us to the gift basket let with goodies and the super sweet baby shirt left for me and my little one on the way. Every thing you all did had a personal touch and sincerity to it. We will use you all again and will definitely recommend you all to others. Thank you again for all you did!! Sincerely, Maggie
MANAGER'S COMMENTS...Thank You, Maggie! We enjoyed hosting your group. Send us a photo of the new addition in the T-Shirt, as soon as she/he grows into it. Let's get that baby on skis asap!
By Jan, Posted: 02/15/2017
We have a family of 17 and everyone loved the house! The grandkids loved the basement and that's where they played when not on the slopes. The adults loved having the main floor and were not disturbed with the kids playing in the basement. We only wish we had more time there and are considering very seriously coming back there next year! We highly recommend it!
MANAGER'S COMMENTS...Loved hearing this great feedback. So great to hear how much the parents and kiddos enjoyed this home and were able to be so spread out, but still all together. We would love to host your family again next year!
By Bob, Posted: 12/26/2016
Our second stay was wonderful as the first one. I would like to point out a hazard involving the stools around the kitchen bar. We had small children that could've been hurt . Your prompt attention to this matter is of essence. Thank you . Property is awesome , comfortable , spacious , worth its value . Response from management is also wonderful and friendly. Would stirringly recommend property.
MANAGER'S COMMENTS...Thanks for the heads up on the stools. Our Christmas Elves, aka maintenance team, have those in the workshop right now. Come back for the 3rd time and it will be the charm.
By Michael, Posted: 10/11/2016
We used Trout Creek Lodge for a 25-person retreat. Everything about the property was perfect! Plenty of dishes, utensils, pots and pans for cooking, comfortable beds, showers, hot water, all the basics were great. On top of that it's a stunningly beautiful property with lots of trails for exploring right out the front door. Having all the game tables on hand was terrific, too, as well as the convenience of Winter Park's main drag being just minutes away. I'd happily recommend this property to my friends. Thanks!
Manager's Comments...So great to hear you had a successful treat and you were able to work and play! Come see us again soon.
By Thomas, Posted: 08/24/2016
We used this house for a summer time gathering for a group of 25. The house was great for us. It was comfortable, clean, and well maintained. The kitchens had everything we needed. It was great!
MANAGER'S COMMENTS... So glad to hear you had a great time and enjoyed both kitchens. Come see us in the winter for some snow fun.
By Lori, Posted: 06/28/2016
This is an amazing, large, beautiful home! We had 30 people for a family reunion ranging in age from 78 to 1 years old, including nine small children. The downstairs was a great space for them to run around and have fun! And the main floor living space was ample for all of the adults. Even mealtime was very manageable with this group. The management company was very easy to work with as well as the check-in checkout procedure.
By Keith, Posted: 06/15/2016
Facility was fabulous and met our needs for 30 people perfectly.
There is no air conditioning and it was hot when we visited so the upstairs space (lack of ventilation) became too hot to use but outside of that it was Very Enjoyable. Probably need bigger, more powerful fans for upstairs or better yet some Windows.
Kitchen was well stocked-- bedrooms very comfortable- staff quickly accommodating - basement entertainment area very enjoyable for everyone.
Our visit was memorable, exceptional and most enjoyable!!!!
By David, Posted: 03/07/2016
Trout Creek Lodge served as the perfect location for our company meeting. The basement living room was great for our meeting room with the large sofa and TV. Most of our meals were eaten in the lodge and the 2 kitchens served us well. I would highly recommend Trout Creek Lodge for family or business outings.
By Ronnie, Posted: 02/09/2016
Great service, friendly staff, customer first and timely follow up. The house was gorgeous
By Dawn, Posted: 01/19/2016
My fiancé (now husband) and I decided to elope to CO this January. We assembled ~26 of our family and friends at Trout Creek Lodge for a long weekend of fun. The house was much more spacious and lovely than the photos conveyed. It never felt like we had that many people in the house and everyone commented on what an amazing place it was! There were areas for everyone to relax, play, sleep, etc. We ended up packing down a small pit in the snow behind the house and got married amongst the trees, with our loved ones huddled together on the basement porch. It was perfect! The WPL staff was super helpful prior to arrival with organizing the ski fittings/rentals/lessons and stopping by the house when we were there to go over the amenities. No complaints whatsoever; just happy, wonderful memories at the Trout Creek Lodge!
By Sue, Posted: 01/05/2016
The house was very well appointed, beds were comfortable and the spaces meant we could have a great time while not all in the same room. Especially nice is the location, with a large open space just half a block away, offering amazing views, trails for snow shoeing and cross country skiing and an easy trail into town. The bus is a long ride to the ski area, but the stop at the end of the street can't be beat. There is even a resident moose in the neighborhood!
The renting company was very responsive when we needed new pool cues or had a question.
No complaints or problems. We'd rent this home again for our large family.
By Winter Park Chamber, Posted: 09/14/2015
This home is all I hoped it would be! We had such a special trip with lots of great memories including a family playoff round at the air hockey table, a rival NFL football game evening in front of the giant TV, and of course lots of bike rides and hikes straight from the home. It's decorated beautifully, well-stocked, and nothing was left to be desired. We want to come back again next year. Thank you to Winter Park Lodging Company for your hospitality. The huge guest gift you had waiting for us, the calls, and the personalized service when we needed something was unmatched.
By Kathleen, Posted: 09/08/2015
Our family of 18 stayed at the Trout Creek Lodge home over the Labor Day weekend. It is a nicely furnished home with more beds than we needed! There's a big loft area and also a big walk-out basement area that both provide plenty of activities for 'tweens, teens and adults. There were more than enough towels, and the kitchen had every appliance and utensil necessary.
By Carol, Posted: 08/27/2015
My family of 28 had a wonderful retreat at Trout Creek Lodge. The place was even larger than it looked in the photos.
We prepared and ate all our meals at the lodge. It was great to have two well stocked kitchens. We even found candles for a birthday cake! We also loved the fact that there was so much seating at the bar and dining table so we could all eat together. We had coffee out on the deck in the mornings. There were only six chairs out there but we planned ahead and brought some folding chairs from home for our large group. It was a wonderful way to start the day.
We took advantage of all the game tables and hot tub. Even the washer and dryer were put to good use. The youngest of the group absolutely loved the slide in the basement!
Everyone enjoyed long walks on the trail behind the house. I have a some beautiful photos of the landscape I'd like to share with you to post on your website.
The beds and pillows were comfortable and the entire place smelled fresh/new.
The only negative comment I could make is that some of the dishes in the cabinets were dirty. They were probably put away by previous guests.
We had a fabulous time. We may make this an annual trip.
By Caroline, Posted: 08/15/2015
Trout Creek lodge was as beautiful and large as the website had indicated (not always the case). The kitchens were very well set up with all that you would need to cook for a larger group (3 ovens total for example). The nearby trails are great for evening walks and sunset views. It was the perfect setting for a family vacation.
By Julia, Posted: 06/24/2015
The only thing that surprised us about Trout Creek Lodge was that it was even bigger in real life than we thought it would be from the pictures! Absolutely beautiful! Everything was in excellent condition, very clean, the staff at Winter Park lodging company were extremely friendly and attentive with any questions we had. Plenty of room for all of us to get together in one spot in the downstairs family room, and lots of room for all of us to spread out all over the house, so we didn't feel like we were right on top of each other for 4 days! We cooked all of our meals at the house, and the kitchens had everything we needed, and even extra things we didn't anticipate having,like 2 pancake griddles. The decor was beautiful, very high-end, nothing cheap or flimsy. My sister-in-law took pictures of everything in the house, she loved it so much! We discovered the house does not have air conditioning, so it got a tad warm upstairs during our June stay. The house had lots of fans, however, so we left the windows open at night to let the cool mountain air in and ran fans during the day, and it stayed cool enough. The downstairs was plenty cool both day and night. We took a hike on the Discovery Trail, across from Winter Park Lodge. Beautiful, easy trail for the kids. We also rode on the free lift right there at Winter Park to a cute shopping area with lots of outdoor games--giant Scrabble, giant checkers, giant chess, etc. The kids all got a kick out of that! We walked down to Wolf Park right there in the neighborhood, had a family Olympics with silly events on the grassy lawn, played on the playground, and we took family pictures in the backyard of the house, beautiful scenery! Trout Creek Lodge was a perfect venue to have all of us together! Thanks for a fantastic stay! everyone said, "Are we coming here again next time?"
By Dave, Posted: 04/11/2015
Trout Creek Lodge was a very nicely equipped home that our accommodated our group which was 14 but swelled in size to 26 when local friends joined us for Easter Dinner. Beautiful Layout and thanks to WPLC for doing their usual great job of service.
By Dwayne, Posted: 02/17/2015
This was a wonderful facility for a team to get together for a team meeting! It was so spacious and comfortable for all of us that attended. We have definite plans of repeatedly using this site for future sales events.
By Chris, Posted: 02/05/2015
My family stayed here for our annual family reunion and the home was just lovely. It had everything we needed. I have 4 adult children, all with families of their own and little ones. Everyone was able to have their own space with plenty of room to come together. The children loved the climbing wall and other games. This was a family reunion we'll all cherish.
By Charity, Posted: 01/21/2015
This house was incredible! Loved the shuffleboard table upstairs. We had an issue with the heat during our first day but the management company was quick in fixing it for us. We will be back again with more of the family!
By Shelly, Posted: 01/13/2015
We've stayed at other homes in Winter Park in the past and this house exceeded our expectations. Very clean and neat. Loved the self check in, you just get a code to use and go straight to the property. The lodging company was very helpful and made sure that we had everything we needed.
