IMG_9929 IMG_9931 IMG_9926Letter from the Assistant General Manager:

Breckenridge in the fall is one of my favorite times of the year.  As the weather begins to cool the autumn foliage and aspen colors serve as a beautiful reminder that winter season is soon approaching.

But before winter takes over we’re thrilled to take advantage of October in the mountains with two-for-one dining as well as ample parking on Main Street, making it easy to shop for new winter gear.  In addition to the Breckenridge Grand Vacations Fall Fest at the Riverwalk Center on Saturday, October 17 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.  Be sure to swing by the concierge desk for more information about town events and specials.

As the weather changes, the Grand Lodge on Peak 7 staff begins our property improvement projects.  Every fall our housekeeping and engineering teams spend time in each unit and the common areas conducting deep cleans and completing any necessary maintenance.  This October we will be replacing the 2nd and 5th floor hallway carpet, completing the South Building’s first full carpet replacement based on the reserve schedule and budget.  The table lamps in Phases 1 and 2 will all be replaced in the living rooms and master bedrooms.  In addition, we will continue to replace the sofa sleepers in the master units as well as the mattresses in the Phase 3 units.  We hope you enjoy these updates, and if you have any suggestions for on property improvements, please share, as we are always looking to be better tomorrow than we are today.

Listed below are some property updates from September:

  • We’re very excited about adding a new bathroom in the ski locker room.
  • We repaired the cracks around the outdoor pool deck.
  • The permanent Grand Lodge on Peak 7 signs have been added at the main entrance and at the North Building basement garage entrance.
  • We sealed and re-striped the outdoor parking lot and the main driveway.

    As an owner, of a 1 Bedroom, I have a few suggestions.
    1. Sofas that you replaced need a higher grain of leather. The new ones now have a low grade leather and make so much noise when you sit down or get up.
    2. Replace all the bathtubs in the units and place a toilet and shower in their place, making it 2 bathrooms. No one hardly uses those bathtubs when you can use the hot tubs/gratto.
    3. Upgrade the washer in the units. The one in there the spin never works well. Too much energy wasted in trying to dry clothes.
    4. Install a wine glass rack above the sink so the glasses are much easier to reach. Utilizing space.
    5. Most important come up with a better process for booking your timeshare time.

      Thank you for your feedback Debbie. We will pass all these suggestions along to the HOA and Grand Lodge Management team!

      My family is on board with WORKING washing machines in the master suite. We felt bad wasting so much electricity drying to dry clothes due to the inept spin cycle in the washing machine.
      Less stemware would be broken with a wine rack installation.
      Time share booking is not a whole lot of fun, calling the Tuesday before/after whatever it is (cause we noticed with several others this past year that it seems to have changed from the Tuesday of the week to Tuesday ater the week) makes for an annoying time in booking.
      ALSO, do day users pay an extra FEE for day use? It really is hard to see them all around the few seats in the hot tub area eating and drinking when you can only use the lodge when you fly in for a week. Come on Colorado, be nice.

      At least one bathtub is necessary for families who have small children who don’t take showers by themselves. I agree, though, that jetted tubs are redundant since there are outside hot tubs. The jetted tubs also are not particularly hygienic unless disinfected regularly.

    We were just there, love it as usual, BUT, we stayed in 1107. The Mattresses are Horribly Hard! Not a comfortable sleep at all.

    We own a 1 Bedroom and would like more towel racks in the Bathroom and a bigger refrigerator and freezer combo in the kitchen. We tend to cook a lot a there is hardly any room in the current refrigerator when you are staying for one week.

  4. Pam Shepard says:

    Replace the ceiling fans in the master suites or at least BALANCE them so the noise level when using them is reduced.

    We own a unit on the 5th floor. The carpet in the hall is very attractive – we have always admired it. We hope that if you replace the carpet, you use the same design.

    The cooking utensils/pots and pans, etc. are of a much better quality than other resorts we have stayed in. We really appreciate your attention to quality.

  6. Ben says:

    Yes, yes, yes a bathroom at the ski lockers. A much needed convenience. Can’t wait for our stay in February.

  7. Laura M. Cohen says:

    The noise transmission between the lock out unit and the main unit is terrible. When we only use the smaller of the two we can hear everything that is going on in the main unit as though we are vacationing with the other party. Perhaps some kind of weather stripping could be added? Thanks,

    DO NOT GET RID OF BATH TUBS!!!!! Not everyone uses the hot tubs!!!
    I do agree with comment on sofa sleepers though. When you sit on it,
    the cushions slide down. You have to constantly shove them back!
