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, hot tub, 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-in; usually at the Ski Shop or T-shirt shop. If 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. On site we have a hot tub, pool table, ping pong table, and board games. There is also a ski shop and a tshirt shop.
Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as you like. After check in you will be given directions (see comments under "The Space") to your room.

If you will be arriving after 5PM please call for additional assistance.
