About Sue Otto

Realtor for Pacific Sotheby's International Realty in San Diego, CA

Sue Otto purchased this condo in 2005

Why Sue Otto chose Frisco

I grew up skiing on the east coast but after attending University of Colorado: Boulder, I never went back to those slopes. I fell in love with Colorado and it became our family tradition to ski there every winter. We purchased this condo because it is so centrally located and we can easily ski Vail, Beaver Creek, Copper, Keystone, Breckenridge, or A Basin. We also selected this condo because the clubhouse offers better amenities than any other complex in the area. With its indoor heated pool, indoor and 3 outdoor hot tubs, racquet ball court, tennis courts, steam room, sauna, and laundromat it has everything. Most other complexes we looked at before buying this condo had only one hot tub.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This condo is so charming I didn't want to go home. First off, the condo feels more like a ski chalet with its cathedral ceilings and 2 story windows overlooking the White River National Forest. The slate stone fireplace, wooden snow shoes on the walls, and cute moose bedding enhances the cabin feeling. Since our last visit the home was remodeled and features new stainless steel appliances, tile flooring, upgraded lighting, new paint and more. The home is very cozy with double pillow top mattresses and plush bedding. No sleeping on hard mattresses with thin blankets here! My kids relished having their own quarters in the fun loft upstairs - 2 full size beds, walk in closet, and full bath. My husband and I enjoyed our privacy in the downstairs master suite with its own bath. Not only does this place ooze mountain charm but the clubhouse is amazing - heated indoor pool, 4 hot tubs, raquet ball court, steam room, sauna, laundry facilities, tennis courts, and more. After a full day of skiing, we would spend hours playing at the clubhouse. My kids went to bed happy! Definitely returning.

Convenient and plenty of room for the three adults.

  • 5 of 5

Good property, especially for the price. We had a bit of a snag with the heater's pilot light being out but the owner responded immediately and got it up and running for us. I would definitely stay here again!

Mountainside Retreat is great for us!

  • 4 of 5

We just stayed at the Mountainside retreat for the 3rd time. After a day of skiing at any of the nearby resorts it is great to get back and cook in and just relax. We like going to the hut tub, indoor pool and sauna. Each stay we went for a slightly bigger condo and each stay the accommodations are better. Fire place, balcony, loft area, eating areas, # of bathrooms, sheltered parking etc. This year was the best! My only complaint is some of the hot tubs weren't working as well as others. The town is nearby if shopping and eating out is you thing. I do recommend you have a car even though there is a bus to copper from town... I also think more towels should be provided. 2 for every sleeping area. If you have a fold out it should be comfortable for 2. The price is reasonable!

THANKS! 4 1/2

small but cute

  • 3 of 5

Let's start with the good things first.

- great location, coded entry (no picking up keys somewhere), covered parking (although tight with a bigger car), walking distance to town, decorated cute, it looks like a new flatscreen tv in the living room (different from the pix), club house with an indoor pool, hottub, dry & wet saunas & 3 outdoor hottubs. That is what really drew us to this condo for our group's getaway/event. The pantry was big and had lots of things if you needed them. We even saw a moose a little distance from the back of the condo!

Now for the cons - the place is about 900+ sq ft. The pictures make the kitchen look bigger than it really is, the beds (both full size) upstairs although comfortable really need to be bigger or the upstairs redone with 1 queen & futon or bunkbeds. We couldn't get a good nights sleep with 2 of us in a double. It was a little hot up there even with the ceiling fan on so we ended up pulling out the portable fan that was in the closet. We heard people stomping around next door for a good part of the 1st night. We did enjoy the hottubs but it would have been nice to know that we should have brought our own towels. With 6 of us in the condo there weren't enough towels to shower and take to the hottubs. I know she stated she is now advertising that this condo sleeps less than 6 to give folks a more comfortable stay. We found the sofa uncomfortable for sitting. I think the cushions need to be replaced or something. There was something wrong with the dishwasher and let her know once we figured it wasn't working (the morning we checked out), so she was sending out the handyman to take a look at it. It's a really new dishwasher but we couldn't get it to turn on. We wondered why we kept pulling out dirty dishes from the cupboards. The folks who stayed before us must have put the dishes in the dishwasher thinking it had turned on/cleaned them then the cleaning crew put them away .. but they were dirty.

I might go back to this condo but wouldn't bring 6 adults, maybe 4 adults and a child.

Great location to visit all of the local resorts!

  • 4 of 5

Condo was perfect for 4 guests. First floor was easy to get in and out of to the garage. I would recommend having a humidifier since the air is so dry. Otherwise, it was just what we needed.
