Located in downtown Winter Park, the Viking Lodge and Ski Shop is an icon in Winter Park. Since 1953 we have been providing affordable lodging to guests who just want to ski and have a great time.
At The Viking Lodge you get what you pay for. The carpets are old, the walls are thin, and the TV’s are not flat screen. But we won’t break your budget; we offer cheap accommodations in an old ski lodge at a great location in downtown Winter Park.
We have 21 rooms; from VERY small to apartments. All rooms have private baths and color televisions; box style televisions, yes they are old TV’s, but you should be outside not sitting in your room watching TV.
Pool, gym, ice sculptures, room service, robes, bell boys, 24 hour front desk, spa – this is a list of stuff we don’t have. We do have clean rooms, a great downtown location, game room, friendly staff and the best dirt parking lot in Winter Park.
We don’t do daily maid service or mints on pillows, but if you ask we will clean your room and find a mint somewhere.
If you’d rather be surfing the web than skiing, riding, biking, hiking, reading, chatting with friends or meeting new ones, you’ll be pleased to know that we have Wi-Fi in the lobby. I suppose some have to work anyway.
You can make use of our luggage room before check-in and after check-out.
Our reception is not open all day (heck we would rather be outside skiing, riding, biking or hiking too) but no fear, we will leave directions for check-inIf you will be arriving after hours (like 6PM) please call.
We have great access to downtown Winter Park and the Winter Park Resort is a quick 10 minute ride on the FREE resort shuttle.

Here at The Viking, we love skiing! That is pretty much what my family and I do from November to April. Both my daughters are active in different programs at Winter Park Ski area, and I coach for both the ski are and the local high school race team. In the other months of the year, we generally like to be outside. We love to travel and have been all over the world from Munich to Bangkok. Mostly, our trips are a bit last minute, we are never quite sure where we will end up. As hosts, we are big on helping you out. If there is anything that you need to make your stay more comfortable, and we will to what we can to get that done for you. Around here, we all can chat about pretty much anything.
