Another quality stay @ Keystone River Run area

Review by michael m.

We have stayed at 3 different River Run locations utilizing SCMR as our rental company. This unit is PERFECTLY placed right in the middle of things, and was perfect for our party of 2.

Great location close to gondola

Can't beat the location and comfortable

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Andrew M.

First floor of living (actually the second floor of bldg) which is conveniently located just next to the stairs which in turn provides quick easy access to underground parking, jacuzzi, ski lockers, outdoor entrance, gas grill. I think the master bed was memory foam and very comfortable. Kitchen had everything necessary to prepare all kinds of meals, large TV for family to hang out and large dining table. TV channels galore including Netflix (even though I have my own acct but nice touch) and I especially liked the heated water vaporizer (the cold ones don't work that good. Basically a perfect unit for family of 4 or less but the sleeper sofa is only for kids. Perhaps a foam mattress top would make it more comfy for teens but not adults. You really can't ask to be any closer to the mtn unless you opt for Ski in/out. Since Keystone has extended hours, it's perfect to grab lunch at the condo for 1-2 hours and then hit the slopes again until 5 or 6pm when the sun starts to set. Again, this unit was super cozy and comfortable. I thought the jacuzzi was going to be a problem since it's directly outside the master bedroom window but nobody was in there past 9pm so it didn't bother me at all. My only recommendation for the owners would be a new shower curtain. Will definitely stay here again if available.

This 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom was absolutely perfect for my 1-week ski vacation getaway. Just walking distance from the Gondola, and ski lockers to store your equipment are conveniently available downstairs from the condo unit. And River Run Village is basically just outside the lobby doors of Black Bear Lodge. Overall, this unit was perfect!

River Run Condo

Nice 1 bedroom condo very close to the Gondola. Property managers were very courteous and efficient - even had a tub/shower drain that needed fixing during our stay and it was taken care quickly.

Great location

Review by Megan C.

This condo was perfect for my husband and I. It is the closest building to the gondola. The ski lockers were so convenient. The fireplace set the mood perfectly as you look out the window to the mountain. The only problem was the window in the bedroom is right above the hot tub and sidewalk. The hot tub closes at 10 but we needed an early night the first night and the noise kept us up. And sometimes early in the morning you hear the keystone staff coming in to work or garbage cans being taken out. Ear plugs or a sound machine would cancel this noise. It was not a deal breaker for us. The convenience to the gondola and village were worth it.

Review by Nancy B.

We enjoyed the location of our rental, the parking was great, nicely furnished and equipped. The only complains were that it was SO hot no matter what we turned the heat to. It was particularly bad over night and the window opening mechanisms were not in good shape so difficult to open to cool it off. Also - the hot tub was below our window and every night people came and removed the cover after 10pm and were very loud.

Best Location!

Review by Ashley E.

This property was an awesome place to spend a weekend. The location to the main gondola couldn’t be better! It was a quick walk which is nice when walking in ski boots. The condo is on the 2nd floor right by the stairs, which leads to the hot tub and ski lockers. We loved how many restaurants were right by the condo, too! We will definitely try to stay in the condo on our next ski trip!

Review by Jennifer F.

The condo was very nice. Well stocked In the kitchen. I would recommend that a pitcher (like a tea pitcher) be added to the kitchen. My husband and I made tea and had to put it in the flower vase. I would certainly stay here again.

Awesome lodge!

Review by Tamara V.

Perfect Colorado getaway! Everything was so easy and effortless, from the directions, to the guest portal and super clean lodge with perfectly accurate description and pictures. Definitely staying here again!

Comfortable, clean & convenient

Review by Ruthie H.

This condo was clean, bed was very comfortable, nice linens, had everything we needed for our leaf peeping tour. The hot tub was turned off and covered every night a few minutes after 10pm. Walls are thin, neighbor showered earlier than we wanted to wake up. Ice cube trays would be nice, the little thing in the freezer is a joke. Doesn't work and doesn't make much ice. Thanks for sharing your second home!

Beautiful summer outing

Enjoyed my stay only problem I had was finding the place to pick up the keys. The location was not very visible.

Extremely Happy Guests!

Review by Brian G.

This condo made our vacation an EXTREME success! Thank you!!! Everything was perfect in every way. Whenever we return to the Western Colorado area we will begin by requesting "Black Bear #8033" for our stay. "Summit County Mountain Retreats" certainly is the only reservation number travelers need in their wallet when planning visits in or around Summit County, Colorado.

Great view of the mountain and just steps away from the gondola. You can't get any closer to the lifts.

Blackbear 8033

| 5 out of 5 stars

Cozy and perfect for our family of 3. Might be a little tight for anything larger. It had everything we needed and the location could not be better. The room runs very warm even with the heater off so be prepared to open the windows. No problems whatsoever with noisy hot tub guests. Stairs right down the hall from the room offer quick access to lockers, spa, and door to the Gondola. Be anywhere in River Run in less than 5 minutes.

The perfect lodging for a family of 4.

| 5 out of 5 stars

Conveniently located to everything in Keystone: River Run Gondola, River Run Ski School, Keystone Sports ski and snowboard rentals, and the village itself. If you could possibly imaging a location that is "more convenient" than a ski-in/ski-out, this might be it. It has the look and feel of a perfect mountain cabin that set the mood for our winter ski vacation.We were there five nights and found it to have everything we could need/want: hot tub, sauna, ski lockers, convenient location, kitchen, TVs with Netflix, heated parking garage...you name it.Very courteous staff who accommodated our request for an early check-in so that we could get in ahead of a rough storm that was moving through the area.I will be recommending Black Bear at Keystone to anyone that is considering a ski vacation, and this location would be my top priority for the next ski vacation my family takes.

Loved this place

Lovely Condo with an excellent location. Everything was steps away. The kitchen was well appointed and the bed was very comfortable! We also enjoyed the hot tub.

It's the Little Things. ..

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Shannon H.

We were happily surprised by this rental. When booking online you never really know what you are going to get. This condo was large, perfectly located, and incredibly clean. It had everything we need for a relaxing vacation. It was an easy check in/check out experience. The covered garage is a very nice feature and the location is perfect for day drives through the beautiful scenery. It was such a comfortable condo we were tempted to stay indoors! The hot tub is outside, just one level below the room, so it was like sleeping next to a waterfall, which we found soothing. This may be a little thing, but the towels were large and very thick. The kitchen is a perfect size for cooking. We would love to return to this property.

Manager Response:
Thank you for staying with us and for noticing the little things!

Enjoyable Weekend Black Bear 8033

We had a great experience staying at this property. Everything was in excellent condition, and the location was great. I especially appreciated the comfort of the King mattress!

We would stay here again. The property was clean and had all of the necessities. The emails with directions for checking in & out were extremely helpful.

Convenient location - would definitely use it during ski season

| 4 out of 5 stars

Liked the location, right in River Run. Everything we needed was in the unit. Didn't mind the constant sound of the waterfall for the hot tub just below the bedroom window. My only complaint was the people who would visit the hot tub after hours - while I was trying to sleep - talking loudly. Having to close the windows with no air conditioning. Not knowing who to call to enforce the quiet hours. Overall, we had an enjoyable stay.

Great condo!

Review by Rebecca K.

My husband, 9 month old and I were in Colorado for a wedding and decided to stay a night in the mountains. It was a last minute decision and I was nervous that I wouldn't be able to book and get all the info I needed to stay the night. I am so glad it all worked out! Management made things super easy for me and responded so quickly. The check in and check out process was so easy! The condo itself was perfect for our little family. Everything we needed was provided including a pack and play (I forgot to even ask if it was a possibility to include one) the condo was clean and everything worked great. The tv had Netflix and movies as well as cable. The hot tub was right outside our condo. Great mountain views from hot tub and condo. I had absolutely no issues or any complaints!

Father Son Ski Trip

| 4 out of 5 stars
Review by Ron R.

This was our second year for our Father, Son ski trip. We enjoyed the location to the gondola. We would be the first ones up the hill in the morning and the condo is close enough to return for a hot lunch. Then we would night skiing!The condo was very clean and had most everything you would need to prepare meals. A couple of items to note; We never turned on the heat and it got too hot at times. We cracked open a window at night. The vacuum cleaner didn't work and for some reason, I couldn't get a good cup of coffee from their low cost coffee maker. Bring a press.

Manager Response:
Thank you for staying with us. We will have the heating system inspected. Sometimes the valves get locked in the open position and cause the heaters to put out heat constantly. We would like to note that we provide 24/7 maintenance services that are listed on our key cards. We would have been happy to address this issue for you while you were staying with us. We are sorry this inconvenienced you. The vacuum was provided by the owner for guest convenience. We have spoken to the owner about this issue and they are replacing the vacuum. We will check the coffee maker and replace it if there is an issue we cannot repair. Again, we appreciate you staying with Summit County Mountain Retreats!

Warm and cozy stay

We had a great time on the mountain and in the village. It was really nice to be right in the middle of things. Putting on our ski boots in a warm place and having only a short walk to the gondola was the best part.

Review by STEVEN L.

Wonderful weather and great snow.

Excellent Location!

| 4 out of 5 stars

4 college buddies skiing/snowboarding and catching up on each other's lives. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Black Bear 8033 was an excellent location on the second floor, near the stairs and the elevator and the hot tub and the ski lockers and one of the closest units in one of the closest buildings to the River Run Gondola. 1 king size bed and 1 large sectional couch was sufficient sleeping space for the four of us. The unit was clean. The TV was a RokuTV with a few apps on it. The TV could have had more apps though, we ended up plugging in our own Firestick in order to have more access. The kitchen mostly had everything we wanted. I would have liked the toilet to flush more powerfully/more definitively. I had to hold the handle down which was just a minor inconvenience. Overall, very good stay.

Review by Kenya C.

This unit was splendid; from the location to the comfort of the King sized-bed in the master bedroom. The bed was the best one I have ever slept on in Keystone and the lines and towels were so soft. The current photos don't show the updates that have been done to this unit. We will be staying here again!!!!

Loved it!!!

We really enjoyed our stay at Black Bear! We will definently be staying with you again when we visit Keystone!
