Mountain-Lodge-Style Retreats with Homelike Ambiance
Rental properties allow vacationing families to enjoy the comforts of home without strapping their oven to the car or FedExing the pet goldfish. Find a home away from home with this Getaway deal to Summit County Mountain Retreats, which boasts dozens properties a short walk or ride from Keystone Ski Resort in Colorado's Arapaho National Forest. This deal is valid for any property managed by Summit County Mountain Retreats, and can be redeemed for any available one-, two-, or three-bedroom condo (based on option purchased) at any valid location.
Summit County's condos grant views of snowy 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, and domestic comforts often comprise kitchens decked out with dishes, cookware, and a full assortment of pie crimpers.
Available rentals include a two-bedroom condo at The Springs with a spacious living room warmed by a gas fireplace and a private balcony overlooking Keystone's River Run Village. Within the resort below, a rock-wall waterfall runs from the lobby straight into the heated outdoor pool flanked by a pair of hot tubs. Vacationers can also choose to unpack their bags in the recently remodeled one-bedroom condo at Silver Mill, which commands clear views of the chalets of River Run Village, the base area to the Keystone Ski Resort. At Silver Mill, three hot tubs cast plumes of steam into the mountain air, and a sauna defrosts chilled muscles.
Arapaho National Forest: Winter Adventure and Natural Splendor
The resort properties from Summit County Mountain Retreats sit amid the Rocky Mountain ridges of the Arapaho National Forest, a short distance from the Dillon Reservoir. Formed from a smaller, natural lake, the Dillon Reservoir now covers the remains of the original town of Dillon. Once the lake ices over, visitors can carve ice-fishing spots or circumnavigate the shores via snowmobile or yeti-drawn sled.
Around Dillon, numerous ski resorts attract winter athletes with pristine blankets of powdered snow. The majority of Summit County properties lie within or near River Run Village. Three peaks rise more than 11,000 feet and split into a latticework of 135 ski trails, fed by high-speed lifts and a gondola.
