Precautions to Help You Have a Safe Vacation In Summit County

We want to express our gratitude & appreciation for you, our guest. If COVID-19 has taught us anything, it is to reflect on the things we’re grateful for. We know you have options and choosing to book with Summit County Mountain Retreats means a lot to us!

In the current environment, it is important for all of us to travel smarter and more consciously. That is why we want to inform you of the steps we are taking to ensure your health and safety while traveling.

We remain open for business and are prioritizing the safety of our guests, owners, staff, and vendors. We continue to monitor the COVID-19 status and work with our local officials to ensure we are doing all in our power to maintain a safe and healthy environment.

  • Our properties are sanitized, cleaned, and disinfected prior to guest check-in. Our housekeeping checklists meet or exceed CDC cleaning standards.
  • Every property will be stocked with a spray bottle of disinfectant, which can be sprayed on virtually all surfaces, including upholstery and bedding. This will enable you to take active steps to ensure your personal safety.
  • We provide care packages with sanitizing products for you to take when you check-in.

Pool and Amenities

Pools and amenities will begin reopening on June 19th. How and when these amenities are opened is controlled by each individual home owners association. We cannot guarantee that all amenities will be open, but we hope that most will be open soon after June 19. We recommend that guests be prepared for restrictions on capacity and other measures, which will ensure the safety of all guests and staff.

Covid-19 Cancellation Policy for NEW Reservations

We have updated our travel and cancelations policies to give you peace of mind when booking your future stay with us. For all new reservations taken and occupancy occurs between September 1, 2020 and November 23, 2020, we will honor the following cancellation policy:

  • Guests may cancel for any reason and receive a 100% refund 30 days prior to arrival.
  • Guests may receive a 75% refund for any cancellations between 14 days and 29 days prior to arrival.
  • Cancellations 13 days or less, prior to arrival for non-COVID-19 cancellation, our standard cancellation policy applies.

COVID-19 Specific Cancellations

Guests may cancel up to 72 hours prior to check-in and receive a 100% refund if any of the following conditions apply:

  • Mandatory closure of vacation rental accommodations by government authorities.
  • Verified positive COVID-19 test result for the primary guest, spouse, or children of the primary guest, within 14 days of stay dates.
  • Verified hospitalization of primary guest’s extended family member, within 14 days of stay date.

  • Government mandated “self-quarantine order” related to travel, within 14 days of stay date.
  • Employer mandated travel ban and/or self-quarantine requirement of 10 days or more.

Travel insurance is an excellent mechanism to protect yourself and your family from the uncertainties of travel. There are many risks associated with travel. Some forms of insurance provide narrow coverage for issues like flight cancellations, while other forms of insurance are broad. During the uncertain times of COVID-19, we recommend that all guests consider and obtain insurance which is commonly referred to as “Cancel for Any Reason.”

When you are ready to travel, we’re here to ensure your stay is enjoyable, relaxing, and above all – safe.

  • Hi!
    If your rental property is on Keystone Mountain and the mountain closes for Covid19 and we are on the mountain…will we be evicted from our rental? If we have not travelled yet, do the closures effect us staying on mountain?
    I realize that you cannot know every contingency, but i am trying to plan a trip and would appreciate any information that you currently have.
    3 time renter,

      We do not have control over Keystone Resort operations, or the availability of skiing. We have updated this post with important information about ski season 2020. We would not evict someone from one of our properties if skiing is shut down. When skiing was closed in March, no one was forced to leave their vacation rentals if they were already there. To be clear, if you book with us and vacation rentals are allowed to operate, you will have a place to stay. This has been the case since June 1.

  • Joshua Soltes says:

    Your covid cancellation policy only has stays listed through 11/23. When will your winter season covid cancellation be available?

    • Summit County Mountain Retreats says:


      We are currently reviewing the ski season and our cancellation policy moving forward from 11/23. Please stay tuned. We will update the winter cancellation policy soon, hopefully within a few weeks.

  • Hi –
    Since reservations for skiing aren’t available until November 6th, are you going to extend your free cancellation policy for Christmas/New Years stays? Vail is allowing free cancellation on all lodging reservations until Nov 9th….

    • Summit County Mountain Retreats says:

      We are reviewing our cancellation policy for ski season. The policy in this blog, as of today, is valid for stays through November 23. The updated policy will be made public soon, but it may take up to a month to update as the situation is constantly evolving.
