The Wild Horse Inn was lovely - close to lots of things to do. The breakfasts were wonderful. We stayed in a cabin which was very nice. The cabins are not house keeping cabins - the "kitchen" only has a microwave, coffee pot and small frig - but this was fine for our short trip.
This is a very well managed B&B. It is very attractive and clean and comfortable. We enjoyed all aspects of our stay including the outdoor areas with great views. The staff is very personalble and helpful. There were nice little touches like an ongoing cookie jar,wine,available coffee early in the am and well appointed rooms. The common areas were very welcoming and comfortable.Would highly recommend The Wild Horse.
The Wild Horse Inn was everything we hoped for and more! We booked the "Buckskin Room" and it was utterly beautiful. The only "downside" that might exist for some visitors is that it is right off the lobby. This means that you can hear others talking, breakfast preparations in the morning, etc. If you value more privacy, I would recommend one of the other rooms in the lodge or an adorable cabin, two of which even allow your pet!! Everything is spotless and upscale. We enjoyed the hot tub in the evening and the complimentary glass of wine on our private part of the deck! They have a little rescue dog, Bella, that is a delight and helped alleviate the loneliness of leaving our own dogs behind :-) John was so creative with breakfast that even I, a "non breakfast person" ate every last bite. The whole experience was perfect and left us slightly depressed when our visit was over!! My husband and I can't wait to return!
We love this Inn! This is the second time my husband and I have stayed there. The memories that stood out for us the first time - were how comfortable it was to lounge in front of the large stone fire place and look through the great collection of books, and how much we enjoyed the high bed and the conversations we had with the other guests around the breakfast table. This time we had the luxury to stay in the Mariposa Cabin. I feel I could live there full time. It is a great use of space – and lots of attention is paid to details i.e. a hand-painted sink in the bathroom. I appreciate all of the materials used in the structures and furniture throughout the lodge. The setting is lovely ….very convenient to several mountain towns and hikes. And it is less than 2 hours from where we live in Denver. The atmosphere is relaxing and stimulating at the same time. We look forward to going there again and again.
When planning a weekend getaway to the mountains we found Wild Horse Inn online and thought it looked cute, was close enough to Winter Park Skiing, and was a reasonable price. When we showed up we were so pleasantly surprised by the whole property! It's gorgeous. The main Inn is SO cozy, clean, and comfortable. The other guests were very friendly but not too intrusive. Chris, on of the owners was welcoming and helped us to plan a snowshoeing day. And the room was so much cuter than we anticipated! We loved our stay . . . especially the community wine that we kept flowing, even in the hot tub! We will definitely come back to stay again and have already recommended it to friends/family. The one negative that we found is that noise from the rooms does carry, so if you want complete privacy I would highly recommend the cabins which are only a few seconds walk away. Otherwise this place is a gem!!
The owners, Laura and Greg, do a splendid job on creating a fun, comfortable place to stay that also gives value as a community. The downstairs rooms encourage mingling with other guests which seemed an important experience for everyone staying here. The owners knowledge of local dining is only matched by how well they are liked and known about town. We had some dinning discounts as part of our package and this was enhanced by other deals available to all the guests at local eateries. We loved the variety and quality of the breakfasts. Eggs, burritos, French toast, good coffee and juice. The evening snack/happy hour was a favorite too and allowed time with other guests. The rooms are sumptuous and comfortable and the Chateau is well appointed and wonderfully eclectic, suiting a ski/mountain getaway. Rates are higher than hotels but having lived in hotels we can say that the added benefits described above give value that you won't find elsewhere. The location is very good and allowed us to walk every evening to different restaurants throughout town.
What can I say, an absolutely beautiful Chateau,the rooms were clean, luxurious and cosy.The breakfast was always a treat we looked forward to getting up to as was the complimentary happy hour wine and nibbles after a day on the slopes.Greg and Laura are fantastic hosts both going out of their way to make you feel welcome and appreciated as a customer, guest and friend.Offering personal ideas as to where to visit and eat out for dinner, we had a fabulous stay and will definately be back one day.
We stayed at the Inn for two nights and everything was lovely. The staff were great and Bella the dog was a delight. Great hot tub and the claw foot tub in our room was hard to leave. Our breakfasts were delicious, the company gracious and we were just a few miles from all of the Winter Park activities.
This was a pleasant surprise. We've been coming to Winter Park for several years during the ski season and never knew this B&B was here. We felt very welcomed and at home as soon as we arrived. The 5:00 wine and hors d'oeuvres were refreshing and it's so fun to put on slippers and enjoy the community/TV room with other guests. If we wanted to be by ourselves, we went up to our room and made ourselves cozy by our gas fireplace. The breakfast is fabulous. Laura and Greg really outdo themselves each morning with fruit, an egg souffle or other egg dish, and a sweet roll or other side dish. The location is in the center of Winter Park and the ski bus comes right at the end of the driveway. Very convenient! We hope to be back soon!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Wild Horse Inn. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The entire house was peaceful even when it seemed to be full. We were delighted to have a fireplace in our room as well as a DVD. We also enjoyed the inviting living room area with a cozy fireplace and ample reading selections. The cookie jar and complimentary wine were fantastic additions. Also, the location to outdoor activities was just right.
My boyfriend and I stayed here in one of the cabins and even though we are not skiers, there was plenty to do in Fraser/Winter Park/Granby. The cabins looked fairly new, clean, large, warm, and quiet! Exactly what we were looking for. The staff was friendly and polite including the dog, Bella. Will probably return to this place, but maybe in the summer since we got a foot of snow over the three days!
We spent most of the weekend in the bathtub. It's like your own private hot tub, sent from the heavens above. Then after that, the extremely comfortable bed enveloped us in its warm sheets and downy pillows. It was gloriously warm in the cabin and far enough back that it felt like our own private getaway. The fireplace enhanced the mood even further, and there was a wonderful collection of DVDs for those cold Colorado nights. The house dog Bella is enough reason by herself to stay there! The owners were extremely kind and the lodge was very well kept. Morning breakfast was greatly looked forward to and was always warm and delicious (frittatas...mmm) The location was excellent and easy to find yet set far enough off US 40 that it was quiet and serene. We would highly recommend this inn to anyone looking for a relaxing adventure or getaway for you and your loved one. There are plenty of things to do in the area, especially if you're snow-minded - we recommend the Tabernash Tavern (in Tabernash no less) - try their Chicken Wellington, it's divine. Overall our stay felt entirely too short but we will be back - and as far as any mountain travel in the future goes, Wild Horse Inn will be our easy first choice.
The cabins are gorgeous and in a beautiful location. My brother had his wedding here and we had nearly the entire place booked. The staff was amazing during the stay and the food was far better than we could have hoped for. The booking was a little hectic at first but when all was said and done it was well worth the trouble.
The cabins are a wonderful place to vacation with my dogs. The cabins are clean, nicely furnished, and have a cozy charm. Judy was a gracious and friendly host who served a scrumptious breakfast and delightful conversation.
My wife and I are from California and we were traveling through Colorado. We were celebrating our 1 year wedding anniversary and decided to stay at the Winter Park Chateau. The place was amazing, the service was excellent, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a great experience and look forward to going back one day.
A beautiful place to stay. However, if staying in summer months you might want to bring a fan....NO A/C. A perfect place to "unplug". NO TV or radio. (however, there are DVD players available for movies). Could use some comfy chairs to sit outside!
This is my second time stay at the Wild Horse Inn. I'm looking forward to the third! John and Chris are always helpful and accommodating. Since my previous visit I have gone gluten free. John prepped the not only gluten free waffles, but on par probably some of the best waffles I have ever had. Eggo, .....dream on. Ciao Chris V.
We had a great time! Our hosts were wonderful, the breakfast very good and the area including hiking and dining is excellent. The property is very pretty with great views and many places to sit and enjoy the quiet mountain air. We highly recommend staying at the Wild horse Inn.
We booked this for our anniversary celebration. The only downside is that we only had one night! Beautiful view, friendly staff, comfortable and clean. Comfy robes were a nice touch. I highly recommend a cabin for that extra touch of seclusion and privacy.
nice stay over-weather very nice-staff very friendly and helpful,especially Judy, would have appreciated more reading light in cabin- more in tune with good old fashion breakfast-did not have nice welcome from other guest at first breakfast-suggest inn keeper start by having guest introduce quest themselves
We had a nice relaxing weekend at Wild Horse Inn. The property is located on a ranch near Fraser and the scenery is breathtaking. The inn keepers are very nice and accomodating. The breakfast was wonderful and the bottomless wine and cookies were a nice addition to our stay. We spent the weekend hiking and riding bikes and after a long day came back to rest in the hot tub.
