GUARANTEED BEST PRICE: If you find a better deal at the time of booking on a comparable property, then provide us with clear evidence and we will beat the deal by 10%.

DISCOUNTS YOU WILL USE: As a guest of Summit County Mountain Retreats, you can take advantage of discounts on an array of services including ski rentals, ground transportation, bike rentals, horseback riding and much more. Let us know during the booking process, and we'll make sure you have what you need.

WATCH OUT FOR GIMMICKS: Don’t be fooled when someone offers discounted lift tickets. Discounts on lift tickets are all the same as long as you do not buy at the ticket window. Buy your discounted lift tickets from the kiosk at the grocery store or online. Kids Ski Free is another gimmick designed to make guests believe they’re getting a deal when in reality they’re paying higher nightly rates and an “amenities fee.” When you do the math on total cost of stay it turns out it’s not a deal at all.

Review by MARK O.

We would stay here again in a heartbeat! Just a short walk to the gondola. A good value. The SCMR staff was friendly and check-in/check-out was very easy.

Very enjoyable accomodations

Review by Paul D.

Everything was just as I expected.

Perfect for those who ski so hard they can barely walk home!

| 5 out of 5 stars

We had an amazing time in this condo. It was perfect for our small family of 5. Our two little ones loved the bunk beds and our 6 month peanut had plenty of space for her pack n play. She got to share a room with the big kids! Master bedroom is huge.Bathrooms are clean and big, perfect for keeping ski boots and wet clothes off carpet. Plenty of storage- we were able to put everything away and keep the space open for play when the kids weren't skiing.Overall, best trip we've had at keystone and LOVED being so close to the gondola. The condo was very clean and staff at Summit were all accommodating. When we arrived, our key cards didn't work for the room. It took 5 minutes to get a spare card! They even brought us brand new humidifiers for those dry winter nights in Colorado.The condo could use a few more family friendly games for the kids to play. We prefer games over tv.

Great location. Loved being in the middle of things! Very short walk to the lifts. Plenty of good restaurants within walking distance. Great experience.

Great Condo -- with comfy beds! -- in heart of River Run Village

Review by Daniel M.

This unit came as advertised. No bad surprises. Only good surprises like underground parking garage. Plus less than 100 yards to tavern, pizza, grocery, and liquor store. No complaints about any late-night noise, either.

Review by Jeff J.

the unit was very spacious and comfortable. The location was perfect. we had 5 couples in 5 different condos spread over 3 of the buildings. It was the most confusing arrival to figure out the garage parking and elevator to the different buildings. Somehow we didn't realize there was no air conditioning and it was very hot-but they did have a few fans in the closets. The light floods into the bedrooms very early in the morning and the lighting from the grounds outside makes in light in the rooms during the night. One of the twin beds needs the mattress replaced and the pillows weren't great.

Great Location!

| 5 out of 5 stars

We were pleasantly surprised with this condo. The main room was much larger than we expected and had plenty of room for people to gather. The only negative is that the master bed has a foam topper, which was nice, but I did find that the right side sinks in towards the middle. That could use an update. Everything else was in great condition and we would definitely stay there again.

Great Condo! Great Location!

| 5 out of 5 stars

This condo is in an amazing location in River Run Village. The balconies (yes, there are 2) overlook the common area. This area/village of Keystone is well designed with close proximity to the gondola, groceries, coffee shops, restaurants, ski school, etc. I would definitely stay here again. My only complaint is that the wooden blinds did not properly fit the windows and light from the beautifully lit trees in the common area flooded the master bedroom at night and made it like daylight.

Great location

| 4 out of 5 stars

We had an awesome vacation. The condo has a great location, was clean and well equipped. Only negative was the poor wifi performance and weak humidifier.

Review by Lucas V.

Excellent unit. Overlooks the fire pit in the heart of RiverRun. Easy walk to the lifts, great hot tub with a nice living area. Two spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. Basic kitchen but everything works just fine. I would love to use this unit again!

Review by Christina S.

We stayed at Black Bear for a week over the Christmas holiday, and had a wonderful time. The unit was spacious and comfortable, and was just as advertised - right in the heart of everything! We had one minor issue with the refrigerator, but the repairman arrived within twenty minutes of our call to the office and rectified the problem. Overall, a great experience and we would definitely recommend it.

Good Deal

I have been coming to Summit County for 20+ years, and this was the best overall rental I have had, from the location, size of the unit, etc. Best overall value in 20 years!

Awesome location

Review by J.C. C.

The room was great. There was a free standing lamp in the 2nd bdrm that wouldn't stand up though, a busted slat on the wood blinds in the mstr bdrm, a torn lamp shade in the living room, an ill functioning electric stove whose burners basically had two settings: off and full. The sleep sofa was your typical uncomfortable set up and one of the sauce pans had stuff burned so badly to the bottom of it it had permanently crystalized to the stainless steel. Underground parking is nice. The outdoor jacuzzi with the waterfall was awesome.

Manager Response:
Thank you for staying with Summit County Mountain Retreats

No complaints, but...

| 5 out of 5 stars

Everything was fine and as expected, and at a reasonable-enough price. The one exception was the on-line rental contract, which was quite "scary" and unpleasant. Nobody has called me to say I owe $xxxxx or told me to show up in court, but I keep "looking over my shoulder." Sheesh. Nice place, though.

Manager Response:
The rental agreement is designed to scare away people who would not act reasonably. One of reasons guests have a nice time in Keystone is BECAUSE we don't want the college / party crowd.

Black Bear property great!

Overall a great experience. Some issues with the TV channels but that was an issue with Comcast and not the rental management.

The only problem we had was the noise from the public area right outside the windows.

Great Location!

| 5 out of 5 stars

We stayed with our two small kids and another couple and this was a great condo! The location is right in the middle of everything! You could stand on the balcony and watch the Parade for the kids go by! It was close to several places to eat and shops! Really just a great location and would stay here again!

Great location in the Village

Review by Kathleen S.

Very nice. Prime location. Right in the miccle of Keystone village. Ice sculpture and Christmas tree right outside my window! Could not figure out why they gave us so few towels for our group, but then found them under the sink cabinet. Sheets were missing for the pull-out couch, but they delivered them after a phone call.The office staff where we picked up the condo keys were not helpful. They basically said here are your keys, good-bye. When I asked how to get to the condo, they just said " You got that on your confirmation email" Well, I just flew across the country , then had to drive 3 hours, and paid top dollar for Christmas week rentals, dont you think they could be pleasant and verbally tell me the directions? She finally gave me a brief direction after I akded AGAIN, but of course, we got lost. Had to turn around twice, and ask someone else for directions. That is my only complaint. Had a great time. It was a cute condo. Clean. GREAT LOCATION. Small hot tub is out the back door. The pool and larger hot tubs are a short walk to the next lodge. We found a short cut , walking past the general store, through a breezeway.FUN

Manager Response:
Thank you for staying with us. We are sorry that we were not as helpful as we could have been.

Review by Dawn N.

I booked this vacation through a Groupon and I thought I was getting a good deal until I saw that I was still responsible for a $99 cleaning fee and various "processing fees, etc". The property itself was nice except the guest bathtub wouldn't drain. And the views of the River Run were cool, except the Christmas lights wrapped around the trees close to the property. They were shining through the master bedroom, so I felt like I was on a airport runway, they need some curtains to block the light. I won't purchase a Groupon for a vacation again.

Review by Aaron S.

Would definitely return at same rate. some minor repairs needed - rear left stove unit not working, cold water faucet in master bath, both common area clothes dryers not working properly. they appear to heat up, but takes hours to dry.

Comfortable room. Perfect location.

Review by Mark G.

Overall the condo was excellent. Right on top of the village. One suggestion I do have is to provide detailed directions/map of the village, skier parking, and condo buildings and entrances. We had a really hard time finding the exact building and the best place to unload our gear and bikes, parking garage, and doors/hallways leading up to the condo. There was some construction on the main entrance and we had to find side entrances to the building. Once we were sorted though, the location was amazing.
