Mountain-Lodge-Style Retreats with Home-Like Ambiance
Summit County is home to some of Colorado's most popular ski resorts. But before the snow falls, you can get a whole new perspective on the landscape. Hiking and mountain-biking trails open up, and they wind through millions of acres of protected forest that surround Summit County. There are five whitewater-rafting rivers within about an hour's drive, too; they're also primed for trout fishing.
You can get easy access to this outdoor wonderland from one- and two-bedroom condos managed by Summit County Mountain Retreats. The majority of Summit County properties lie within or near Keystone's River Run Village. See the Fine Print for a full list of valid room types.
In Summit County's condos, you'll have views of mountains, placid lakefronts, and thickets of pines, aspens, and firs. Though exact amenities vary from unit to unit, resort perks may include jacuzzis and heated underground parking. Condos all have a homey feel to them—full kitchens come decked out with dishes, cookware, and a full assortment of pie crimpers.
In the two-bedroom condo at Arapahoe Lodge, you'll find a spacious living room and a balcony overlooking River Run Village. Within the resort below, there's an eight-person hot tub set alongside a heated outdoor pool. Or you can unpack your bags in a recently remodeled one-bedroom condo at Silver Mill, which has three hot tubs, a sauna, and a fitness center on its property.
Keystone, Colorado: Upscale Resort Town near Mountains and Alpine Lakes
Located about 75 miles west of Denver, the resort town of Keystone is lined with four-star restaurants, high-end shops, and upscale development, but there's no doubt that the mountains are the focal point of the town. Keystone Mountain itself features two championship golf courses mixed in with pristine lakes, meadows, and the Snake River.
The Summit County properties also border the Dillon Reservoir, a 3,000-acre lake which now covers the remains of the original town of Dillon. To the north, the Arapaho National Forest stretches across 1.5 million acres of protected mountains and grassland laced with hiking trails and dotted with yeti summer homes.
