Minnie’s Cabin, as it’s affectionately known, features a large recreation room with a wet bar, a pool table, a large flat screen TV, a fireplace and plenty of seating.

The Keystone Top 5: Pools

keystonepools

There are lots of reasons to come to Keystone in the summer–whitewater rafting, biking, canoeing, fishing, the list goes on! But sometimes you just want to kick back in a great pool and enjoy the mountain views.

Once again, we’ve put in the hard work of figuring out what the best five pools are in Keystone. It was a tough job, but someone had to do it.

(And for when you’re not relaxing in the pool, check out our discounts page. Guests of SCMR can receive discounts on many activities, including whitewater rafting, fishing, biking, spa services and more!)

SCMR Presents: The Top 5 Pools in Keystone

Screen Shot 2016-06-27 at 2.18.42 PMTaking the top spot yet again is Dakota Lodge. It’s in the heart of River Run Village and features the largest, year-round heated pool in the entire resort. Not to mention, there are also two oversized hot tubs. The icing on the cake? The spectacular slope views featuring Keystone Mountain. If you stay at Dakota, you can snag one of our properties that overlook the pool so you can watch family and friends from the balcony. 

Screen Shot 2016-06-27 at 2.18.49 PMSecond on the list is The Springs. When it comes to being kid-friendly, this complex has truly outdone itself. Not only is there an outdoor pool with a waterfall and slide, there’s a media room, indoor play area, wading pool with sprayers, fire pit and shared grill area. On top of all that, there’s also a hot tub that is perfect for adults while the kids splash around in the pool. We have several properties in this building, but the star of summer of is Unit #8811 with its poolside patio. 

Screen Shot 2016-06-27 at 2.18.57 PMNo. 3 on the list is Settler’s Creek. Their clubhouse (aka Minnie’s Cabin) puts all their amenities in a centralized location. The beautiful pool features a spacious deck with lots of seating, and there are two hot tubs. Next to the pool is Minnie’s Cabin featuring a pool table, a wet bar for entertaining, a large flat screen TV and shower and restroom facilities. And the shared grill area is right outside with extra seating. With everything you need within a few feet of each other, it’s no wonder this one made the list. 

Screen Shot 2016-06-27 at 2.19.06 PMComing in at No. 4 is The Timbers. One of the more exclusive buildings in the resort, this complex offers great amenities with a touch of luxury. The pool is surrounded by tall pines lending to a secluded feel. The swim-in/swim-out feature is a nice touch if there’s a chill in the air. Additionally, there’s a shared hot tub with a waterfall, grill area with seating and an outdoor fire pit.

Screen Shot 2016-06-27 at 2.19.13 PMAnd coming in at the fifth spot is Tennis Townhomes. This complex is on the north side of Highway 6 just as you come into Keystone from the west. This location lends a quiet and secluded feel to the outdoor pool while also offering wide views of the surrounding mountains.  There’s also an indoor hot tub with large windows and a sauna. 

Introducing an Uncompromising Standard of Cleanliness

The Ivory White Bedding Program

Ivory Bedding Program

We’re excited to announce our latest endeavor, the Ivory White Bedding program! This program not only adds a sophisticated look to a property, it also features an uncompromising level of cleanliness.

But before we discuss our high quality upgrades, here’s a brief overview of our standard linen program: Our standard linens are light, breathable microfiber and are comparable to the linens that our major competitors use, however, SCMR rotates old bed linens and towels out of service on a 3-year cycle, whereas our competitors use a 5 to 6-year cycle.

Then, in 2014, a long-time client suggested that we consider a premium line of linens. Since then we rolled out our Ultra-Premium Linen program. These linens rival those of The Four Seasons, featuring extra soft, oversized towels and high quality bed linens with a subtle satin stripe pattern for a touch of elegance.

With the success of Ultra-Premium Linen program, we began researching the feasibility of an all-white option for bedding. Many high-end hotel chains have switched to this type of service, and it not only adds a touch of luxury, but also gives guests peace of mind because the duvet cover is freshly laundered for each new reservation.

For several months we spent time visiting hotels and figuring out how a property management company could take on a similar program with properties spread out across a resort. We also examined various duvets and duvet covers to determine the best option for SCMR standards.

In the winter of 2015, the bed linens were chosen and the Ivory White Bedding Program was born.

The Ivory White Bedding program showcases a soft, white-striped duvet cover with a medium thick, high quality down alternative duvet. The duvet cover will be removed after each guest stay and replaced with a freshly laundered duvet cover. The entire bed will be made with fresh white linens for each new arrival. This is an uncompromising and industry leading standard of cleanliness.
