Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Timber Lodge Breckenridge
We stayed at GTL for our Christmas vacation. We rented a unit directly from the owner, but stayed in the "new building". Our view from the balcony was of the construction site. Not very beautiful! We organized our week with the activities director at the Lodge. Our snowmobile tour was late, we lost a 16 year old girl on the trail( the leader was going so fast that we didn't know her snowmobile had broken!). They arranged a Christmas dinner at the fondue restraunt in Keystone and left us without transportation back to Breckenridge. We had to take a 2 hour public bus ride through the county to get back to Breckenridge! The rooms were hot and cramped. This is not a resort I would recommend or stay at again. The shuttle service was the best thing going!
Excellent Place to Stay!!!
I would like to respond to the previous review of the Grand Timber Lodge. First of all, every time I've been to GTL they have very accommodating and willing to bend over backward for any request my husband and I have had. It is ski in ski out, if you know how to ski and are able to traverse. The family atmosphere throughout the buildings and in the restaurant is wonderful for our young children.
Although we have only been to the Lodge Pole restaurant once the staff was very professional and by no means intoxicated. Our GTL ownership is one of the best financial decisions we have ever made and I am happy to 'be part of the family'.
stayed here Jan 3-10 2004. It was a nitemare from the start! Check in was TOTAL chaos. Many people checked in before us even thro we had been waiting for hrs. !! Literally. They have a policey that you are assigned a room when you reserve your week and that is the one you get! Doesn't matter if you are there at 1 pm and there are room types like your availible and waiting . Never heard of such nonsence and we travel alot thru disney vacation club. The manager was rude and in way over her head. snapping and raising her voice to her staff. It was embarressing to witness. The one bedrooms are beautiful! The buildings are so hot you can't bear it. I mean we had to turn our heat all the way off open windows to keep comfortable and it was below zero and windy on sat., sun., and mon. When we complained, we were told to just open our windows." But what about the cost to the homeowners and energy conservation? ", I asked. I was told that it was entered into the maintence fees, and the energy wasn't his problem. So we did what everyone else in the buildings around us were doing and opened the windows. Ridcoulos. We did have a small humidifier in the room. I had to constantly boil water in the room too it was so very dry we were all getting nose bleeds. The first nite we were going to try the on site restraunt we were warned off by the neighbor to our left. Went over to check on our son in the GREAT indoor/outdoor pool and found out that the neighbor was right. The entire staff was DRUNK!!! and I mean it was very evedent. loud, obnoxious behaviour . slurred speech, it was really kinda funny. next nite it was better in there, we ordered cheese steak sandwiches... just awful! It advertises ski in ski out which I guess they can get away with because literaly I guess you could do it. If you cross country ski about 1/4 a mile, trudge uphill 2 blks, then anothe blk on a straightaway. all around the back of the very large complex that is Grand Timber lodge. The town of Breckinridge is a wonderful place with lots to see and do, wonderful transportation,great little places to eat, fun shops. But everything is expensive,to save money we cooked at home. Made it affordable for a middle class income that way.Lots of other places much beter to stay then Grand Timber Lodge. YUCK!
Great family atmosphere
Top Notch! We stayed at a one bedroom unit at the Grand Timber Lodge this last New Year's week. It's a beautiful property right on the mountain. The heated indoor/outdoor pool and jacuzzi was great after skiing all day. The shuttle service is very convenient to get around town. We look forward to going back.
Owners at Grand Timber for 5 years!
My wife and I have owned a 2 bedroom at Grand Timber Lodge for more than 5 years. We own both a ski week and Thanksgiving week. We wouldn't think about trading our ski week. The facilities are 5 star, the employees are wonderful. Maintainence is always top notch. We consider Grand Timber our 2nd home!!!

Rocky MNountain High
This facility was everything we expected and more. A real dream come true.
Rocky Mountain High
We had a great stay during the July 4th week! Breckenridge has a big parade and fireworks and we were able to walk down the mountain to main street. You could even call the front desk and their shuttle would find you for a return up to the lodge. There are a lot of things to do and see in the summer in Summit County, and Breckenridge seems to be in the center of it all! We are going to return to Grand Timber Lodge this year!
5 star Property
Everything you expect and more!!!
This is a first class facility, very new, right off a ski lift. Spacious condo's, with all the amenities. Very comfortable and luxurious. Should be so lucky to stay in a place like this for every vacation. Full kitchen but limited food service. Underground parking.

Today was snowing all day, but just lightly so we went out for a ski together in the morning. We decided not to go to vail as we thought it would be crowded being the weekend. Harvey and jazzy LOVE going over little jumps (and big ones for jazz) so the morning was spent with Harvey saying "Dad, can you find dome more jumps?" I have attached a photo of Harvey doing a jump. Everyone skied well ...
... than just pointing his skis straight town the hill and getting out of control. Harvey end I stuck yo green slopes again today. Copper is the perfect mountain for beginners. There are so many long wide open greens for us to do... We have probably only tried a quarter of them so far and even in the weekend there are still plenty of open spaces and doesn't feel crowded ...
Today's highlight was tubing at copper mountain. Tubing is very similar to the one that we went yo with you allie up at Arthur's seat where you sit in big tube-like tyres and go down big manmade hills. Except here the hills are made out of snow. There are 4 hills you can choose from from fastest to slowest. Jazzy and I got a double tube and went down ...
Stu went skiing with the boys this morning....they are blokes that live here so went down some pretty hard runs I think. Stu said he skied over 20,000 vertical feet today!! Kids just wanted a morning playing so we all pottered at home this morning. Then out for a ski at copper mountain again. I think I am finally starting to relax on the slopes now and ...
Slept no better last night. Acetaminophen seems pretty useless so will try Solprin tonight if I get another headache. Never had this problem at Mammoth. It must be lower. Will have to look it up. At least it's only at 3am, no problems during the day, in fact today felt really good and fit, no aching legs as is often the case after the first day of skiing. The gym is paying off. However Ian began to be more challenged in the afternoon and complained about me not stopping ...
