Jan 2017 stay

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property! Everything the owners said about the condo was absolutely true. We had a great time! The snow was great. We skied at Copper Mountain and Loveland. Goofed around in Frisco. Had a blast!

We had four 20-26 year olds and two adults. The bedroom arrangement couldn't have been better. One day our car didn't start and a friendly neighbor helped with a jump start.

The only reason to give this place 5 stars is that 6 stars isn't available!

Great location and home

  • 5 of 5

Our family has spent Labor Day weekend at Papa Bear's the past four years. We have enjoyed our stay every year--everything to do with the home is great (location, furnishings, clubhouse and the bears)! Unfortunately as our has family continues to grow, we have outgrown Papa Bear's. We will definitely be back if we ever have a smaller group for our annual stay. The house has everything you will need to make your stay in the mountains enjoyable. Thank you Don & Carol for sharing your home with us and we will miss Papa Bear's next year.

Great Location, Very cozy house

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Papabears this week. The house is much bigger than it looks on the pictures, great floor plan for your family. Location is awesome, views are amazing, beds are comfy and you have everything you possibly need in the house.! Even a few sleds to ride a hill in the park! My family loved the time we had this winter. We will definitely stay again :)

Good Location and Lot's of Bears

  • 5 of 5

Papabears was nicer in person than in the pictures and the kids loved all the bears throughout the condo. The location was great and our family / friends enjoyed the stay. It was great to have two separate living spaces so the kids could make noise and play while the parents hung out upstairs. Two separate "masters", each with their own bathroom was nice for the parents as well. We used the pool / hot tubs every afternoon after spending the day on the slopes at Copper Mountain. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking multiple meals at home; however we also really enjoyed our meals out at The Lost Cajun, the Himalayan restaurant, and no trip to Frisco is complete without Peppino's Pizza. We would definitely try to stay here on our next trip to Frisco.

Great Place

We had a great time at Papa Bears. Plenty of space and well appointed with all things needed for cooking. Frisco is conveniently located and local restaurants were fine. Will stay here again on next visit.

Lees Summit, MO

Great location and accommodations for the value.

  • 5 of 5

I have been traveling to Summit County for many years. I've rented in Dillion, Silverthorne, Keystone, and Frisco. This season my group lucked into staying at Papabears. Our party consisted of 4 adults and 4 kids ages 7-11. Truth be told, I was a bit concerned that the condo would be a bit cramped for a group of our size. As it turned out, the layout of Papabears worked very well for us. Our 4 kids shared the 3rd bedroom and den, while the 2 sets of parents each had bedrooms on their own levels. The layout of the main living area and dining room was very open with large windows and high ceilings. The kitchen was tight with two cooks but it has a nice stove and was well stocked with pans, utensils, and sharp knives (I've learned to bring my own).

Having a large capacity washer and dryer in the house was also a very nice touch. After spending a couple of days "spring skiing" with temps in the low 60's the ski clothes where kind of ripe. It was nice to not have to travel, or pay extra, for laundry.

The clubhouse at the condo complex also fit the needs of our group well. Our kids swam in the pool while the adults played "Goldilocks" switching from hot tub to hot tub finding the one with "just right" temperature. We also played racquetball, enjoyed the sauna, and found the "steam room".

For those that have not traveled to Summit County before, Frisco is a great central location. We never ski the same resort twice in a trip and this year was no exception. Breck, Loveland, Vail, and Beaver Creek all made our list to ski this season as well as a few "back country" runs from Loveland Pass.

Papabears is run and maintained by the owners, not a management company. It was very evident from when we first walked in the door that this was a second home, not just a rental property. Everything was well maintained, nicely decorated, and homey. To top it all off I even received a call from the owners the day prior to my trip updating me on weather and warning us of an impending storm. The small touches mean so much.

We will for sure look to stay at Papabears the next time we are in Summit County.

Owner's Response: Trafton, We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at PapaBears and that you were able to start your drive out earlier than planned and arrive before the snow storm caused the I-70 road closures. Don & Carol
