Mountain-Lodge-Style Retreats Near Keystone Ski Resort
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 today's Getaway to Summit County Mountain Retreats, which boasts dozens of properties that reside a short walk or ride from Keystone Ski Resort in Colorado's Arapaho National Forest. This deal is valid for the Keystone River Run Village properties listed here managed by Summit County Mountain Retreats, and can be redeemed for a one- or two-bedroom condo or a luxury two-bedroom ski-in/ski-out property (based on option purchased) in River Run Village.
Summit County's condos reside either directly on the Keystone Ski Area slopes or just a short walk away. All of the home-like buildings 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 kitchens come decked out with dishes, cookware, and a full assortment of pie crimpers.
Two upscale properties feature direct access to the slopes in their backyard: Lone Eagle, whose balconies have scenic views of the ski runs, and The Timbers, which dons chess tables and a baby grand piano in its luxurious lobby. Other available rentals include a two-bedroom condo at The Springs, where a private balcony overlooks Keystone's River Run Village and the spacious living room is warmed by a gas fireplace. 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, and numerous ski resorts attract winter athletes with pristine blankets of powdered snow. 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, and the majority of Summit County properties lie within River Run Village.
The lodgings also resides just 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 speedy snowmobile or a sled pulled by Mark McGwires.
