... and Fumika at Drew's house. The sons grilled the steak. We had crab wontons with mango salsa, baked Feta cheese with baguette, green salad, baked potatoes with sour cream, ribeye steak with Bernaise sauce, dinner rolls made by Vivian and berry and lemon pavlova. We drank fresh berry ...
(S) You guessed it - another May trip. After last year's amazing travels through India, we are returning to Europe, and hopefully temperatures below 120 degrees. That also means rain, but we are prepared because let's be honest, it rains every time we go to Europe. It also means traveling to 3 countries we've never stepped foot into, even though we have been all over the Balkans on previous trips. And we love it. Our plan? We fly into Tirana, Albania, pick up our ...
... favorite Boulder haunts, we joined Asa along with many of the late Gil Weiss' great friends for a celebration in his honor. Part of this celebration included a slide show of a team of friends who climbed a difficult first ascent in the remote corners in California's high Sierra mountains and dedicated the climb to Weiss.
We started the day a little late. We didn't head out until around 9:00. Not much to see in Kansas. Lots of rolling hills, cows, corn, cows, corn..... for hours. The carousel in Burlington was very pretty. All of the animals were hand carved and painted by a German artist. The organ is not the original with the carousel but is similar to the one originally used. It cost a quarter for a ride and the outside animals travel at 12-15 mph which is a bit quick but the ride is ...
... 7 mile bike/run race from Boulder Reservoir, overcoming man made obstacles and ending by swimming in a mud pit! Mad!
Anyway, mud pits aside, I think we are all agreed that Boulder is a place we would all like to come back to someday.
We’re all packed up now, and more or less ready to go, after a last hot tub and card session later (not at the same time!) After a visit by a bear, we were also visited by two humming birds today, who flew into the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Winter Park Mountain Lodge
Great place, Greater view
Great rooms with Great views. Food is good, great home made beer, excellant staff. One of the nicest stays I've ever had. Have stayed here at least 6 times during all seasons. Wish I could afford to live in WP.
Not a place to stay!
We stayed here for only one night, thank goodness!! I couldn't believe how awful the room was! It was large with a seperate bedroom, but that would be it's only plus. I was amazed at the mold in the toliet, the broken light bulbs in the bathroom, and the fact that the room smelled so stale. I cut my foot on the tile in the bathroom, unsure if it was glass or the grout that was coming up. There was food on the sofa sleeper and on the floor under the couch. I could not believe they left a tip envelope for the maid in plain sight, like I was going to leave one! We did complain upon our checkout, but I'm sure the clerk could care less! Since it was a business trip, my husband's employer had already paid in advance.
Winter PArk very nice hotel
Winter PArk hotel very nice with pool. We love the beer and food. WE would come back again if we can
The Great Lodge
Winter Park was a great hotel with everthing and a great ski hill. Come here and be happy
WP mountain lodge was cool
Imagine this, three guys from Rutgers, a huge resort with lift access bike trails and we stayed at the only hotel with it's own Brewery! We had such a great time we plan to go back every summer. Kev, Tom-as, Rudey
Avoid At All Costs!
This hotel is a joke. First we were given keys for a room number that
did not exist. When we finally got into our room, it was truly awful.
It had a dirty sofa sleeper with a huge rip in it. The furniture looked
like it should have been left at the curb for trash pickup. When I
spoke to the front desk, they said I could stay or get my money back.
They did not offer to move us to another room because they did not have
anything available. When I was waiting in line to get my refund, I
heard the same desk clerk tell a group in front of me that they could
move to two rooms containing king beds. I could not believe it. Avoid
this hotel at all costs!
I enjoyed the hotel. We did stay in a cheaper room with a view of the garbage dump. As a former General Manager of a hotel, we often upgraded people to better rooms provided the occupancy was low that night so I think I was hoping for the same since the occupancy was on the slow side. So I do recommend paying for a better view or a better room if that is important. Otherwise, I feel we got our money's worth since our rate also included a breakfast. The beds were comfortable enough.
We have been to the Colorado Mountains many times, and have learned exactly what to expect. The service is never the same as in other locations, but the people are normally friendly, especially considering that they have to deal with us high stress city folks all the time. I stood at the front desk and watched the poor girl get screamed at because the shuttle to town (which she very nicely explained about 5 times was run by the ski area and not the hotel) was 5 minutes late. I felt horrible for the girl and seriously wanted to punch the jerk.
This resort hotel has a lot to improve on in the manner that they treat their guest. You are barely recognized at the service desk.It is almost impossible to get anyone from the front desk to answer the phone from the guest rooms or outside family calling in. When personally going down to the front desk to inquire what the problem was, the clerk was too busy playing video games on the computer to answer the phones. We had to go to 3 different floors to get enough drinks for our party of people.We recieved no clean glasses or coffee cups the 2nd day of our stay.They didn't even remove the dirty ones. The pool water was ice cold with lights hanging in the water with exposed wires.We were told to go get the luggage rack ourselves on the 3rd floor. When checking out we received no thank you or any recognition what-so-ever. If we ever return to Colorado we will definitely not stay here.
Will Not return to this Hotel!
We will absolutely be making Winter Park, CO. a yearly vacation, but
will never return to the Winter Park Mountain Lodge. We did not
encounter one polite person the entire week we were there! The
Restaurant Staff was rude, the room was not clean, the in-room movies
did not work, and there is no room service. I heard several great
things about the Vintage Inn, and will most likely be staying there
when I return next March.
