The location and amenities of this vacation rental are hard to beat for the price. The room was clean, spacious and an all around great location to stay. Definitely recommend!

Great Location

Review by Austin L.

great little spot at the bottom of the gondola next to all the shops/restaurants.

Quick Ski Vaca

| 3 out of 5 stars

We were satisfied overall with the property itself. The unit was fairly clean, the amenities were well maintained and nice and close to everything. Our only issue was upon checking in at 4, we realized that one of the 2 table chairs had a leg that was completely broken off. We called immediately and were told that maintenance was only there until 6 and asked to come the next day. Since we were only there one day, we asked if they could fix or bring any type of replacement chair so we could sit our kids down at the table for dinner. They said they would although maintenance never came and we never got any follow up communication from property management.

Excellent stay. Late check-in was a breeze. Needed to stay an extra night last minute and the management company quickly and easily found us another condo (the one we had was already booked for that night). Late check-out fee very reasonable.

Review by ANGELA R.

I was in Keystone for a conference and was there for five days. Overall the condo was very nice. My only complaint, that I called about as soon as I checked in, was the condition of the carpet in the living room - I did not want to be blamed and charged. There were dark black spots right in the entry. The living room carpet definitely needs professional deep cleaning in this unit. Besides that, all other areas were clean, and eveything was in working order. The kitchen had a refrigerator with ice maker, stove, microwave, and dishwasher. It was fully stocked with pots/pans, dishes and silverware - we only cooked once, but did go to the grocery store in the next town for simple things like fruit, etc. I loved having the fireplace for the cool nights. Buffalo Lodge is in a village called River Run with several other condo buildings, shops, and restaurants. The exterior amenities included large lobby with pool tables, hot tub, and swimming pool. There was private underground parking. All entrances were secured requiring key card for entry. The lifts and gondelas were also in this area and we got up the nerves to take a ride up to the top of the Rockies that had a beautiful view and a mountain top restaurant. Since we rented a vehicle we were able to venture out to the surrounding towns; went to an art festival and did some shopping at the outlet mall and some other local stores. I had a wonderful time in Keystone and took great pictures of the beautiful scenery.

Good Overall

Review by Reza F.

We had some trouble with the keycards that I picked up and had to wait quite a while for assistance, but beyond that, everything else was fine. We liked the cleanliness of the unit and the property overall. The location is wonderful. The parking garage is great. And staff provided good customer service when we called with questions.

Review by Felecia D.

Great communication and easy key pick up. Awesome location. Clean and comfortable condo with a nice view. We had cozy evenings cooking in and relaxing. Amenities were excellent!

Fantastic experience - we will definitely come back!

| 5 out of 5 stars

This was our first visit to Keystone. Friends recommended Summit County Mountain retreats after their stay. I was able to rent direct through them for less than VRBO advertised. Their communication throughout the process was top notch. Our condo was beautifully appointed. We thought we had an issue with the fireplace (we didn’t), but their maintenance staff was pleasant, responsive and helpful over the phone. Great discounts at the ski rental shop. We loved access to all the amenities at our building and throughout the area. All in all, it an amazing experience. I would highly recommend it to anyone!

Loved staying here for 3 nights! Beautiful views, great restaurant in walking distance. Place was clean and just perfect for myself, brother and friend.

Spring Break 2017

| 5 out of 5 stars

The kitchen was well equipped, crock pot, large pans. A perfect way to save $ for a family, prepare meals in condo. Room was comfortable and clean. My enjoyed the games. Enjoyed the hot tub and heated pool across the way. The pool table was a disappointment, pool sticks in bad condition, no tips to chalk. Great location, great restaurants near by.

Cozy Condo

| 5 out of 5 stars

Overall it is wonderful, although the pickup of the door key was slightly confusing (you do not pick up the key in the same building as the condo, so we ended up taking a shuttle to get the key). This great little condo is within walking distance to the gondola, and has access to soothing outdoor hot tubs. You can walk downstairs to the little Keystone ski village area, where there are fun food, equipment rental and shopping options. Nice kitchen and bathroom, working gas fireplace and small balcony. We loved it, and hope to return again to this unit.

Amazing location!

Review by Wesley T.

Clean, nice room withball accommodations necessary. And only a quick 5 minute walk to the gondola. Also has a really nice chill area with a huge tv and 2 pool tables and 2 hot tube. Definitely recommend. Would love to go back next year

Beautiful and Cozy - great experience!

We loved our stay with Summit County Mountain Retreats in Keystone. This condo was exactly what we hoped and it had an incredible view of the mountains to the west.

Spring Break on the Slopes

| 4 out of 5 stars
Review by Mark F.

Location was great and the condo was very clean and well equipped. We had 3 adults in the room and it was a bit crowded. As with most sofa beds, it wasn't very comfortable but it did it's job. Hot tub was excellent after a full day on the slopes and the pool tables were a nice touch. Overall I would highly recommend as a 3 adult rental or a 2 adult/2 children rental.

Our stay was fantastic in every way. An excellent location for enjoying the village and mountain. Short, easy walk to the gondola, shopping, dining, everything. Our unit was perfectly clean, cozy, inviting and comfortable. Made our ski weekend such a joy. Awesome hot tub to relax after a day of skiing. Highly recommend!!!

Review by William R.

We spent 4 nights in the Buffalo Lodge #8396 in the heart of Keystone Village, and really enjoyed our stay. The room was nice, could have used a bit more storage space for clothes, but we DID over-pack a bit! Was close to the lifts, bars/restaurants,and shopping.

Very Nice

| 4 out of 5 stars

Spend 2 days at this condo in Buffalo Ridge at Keystone. For the price, this condo is very worth it. It is in the center of action with shops and food below and the lifts only a few minutes walk away. The condo itself was nice, but could use updating. The fold-away couch bed's mattress need to be replaced badly.

It was very nice. Walking distance to the slopes ,shopping and restaurants. They had small wagons you could borrow for free to help carry skis and boots to and from slopes. Short driving distance to ski rental shop. The condo was in the center of it all and had it all.

Our Dream Vacation... Still a Dream

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Bridget M.

After losing a baby in 2011 and welcoming our second living child in 2012, we were looking toward our first family vacation this October 2013. We arrived to the spectacular beauty of Keystone, CO and knew we picked the right spot to experience a most special and rejuvenating time as a family. Unfortunately, our baby developed hypoxia/altitude sickness and we were given doctors' orders to take her to lower altitude in Denver. Summit Co staff were wonderfully helpful in referring us to an Emergency Room where our baby was treated for dangerously low oxygen levels and treated with exceptional care. We are thankful for this referral. Before departing Keystone, we briefly visited the condo in Buffalo lodge to retrieve a few non perishable groceries that Peak Provisions so kindly delivered and to distribute perishables to some vacationers we met in the lobby (we hated to see such beautiful food go to waste). During our brief encounter with the condo, we found it to be immaculately clean and well furnished with a marvelous view of the resort and mountains. It was cozy and would have made the most lovely vacation home away from home. We were very disappointed to have to leave it unoccupied; however, we were thankful for our daughter's health and stayed focused on taking her to lower ground. The only negative aspect in re to the rental is that we will not be refunded our money. We failed to purchase the trip insurance. So we lost our $400+ rental and fees and also had to pay another $400+ for accommodations in Denver. We saved for a year to take this trip, so we are disappointed that something couldn't be worked out per the emergent nature of our departure. We have no doubt, though, that if our baby had not developed hypoxia/altitude sickness this trip would have been perfect! We hope to return someday for our dream vacation per our children's and financial health. We highly recommend Summit County Rentals, and we highly recommend trip insurance.

Thank you!

Review by Jeffrey D.

This single bedroom with a pull out is a little tight on space, but it is adequately equipped to accommodate a family of four. The kitchen is nice and you can't beat the location - right in the middle of Keystone. The downstairs lounge area with 2 billiards tables, hot tubs, fridge, living room furniture is sweet!

Awesome accomadations

This is a beautiful condo located in a great area close to the slope.

March 6-10, 2013

Review by Greg M.

We stayed at the Buffalo Lodge in the River Run Village at Keystone from March 6-10, 2013. The condo was very nice and comfortable for the three of us. Looks just like the pictures. The location is perfect and we enjoyed the village and shops. The building was not crowded and was very quiet. The underground parking, ski lockers, and hot tub facilities were all convenient and easy to access. Everything was as represented in the web site. The only challenge we had was accessing the WiFi at night. Signal was not real strong. A good experience and we would stay there again in the future.

Pretty Decent Stay

| 4 out of 5 stars

My first experience was with the property mgmt. I called regarding the rate. Was told they would call RIGHT BACK. An hour later, no call. I called again and was told 5 mins. No call. So, I booked the room online instead. Not a good start. On the down side: the carpet was, surprisingly, quite dirty. I understand skiing season and the dirty garage contributes to this greatly. The internet signal strength was miserable. 2 to 3 of 5 bars at best. Unusable 70% of the time. Couch was very uncomfortable as it is a sofa bed. On the upside: Great location, only a few minutes walk to gondola or shuttle, great gas fireplace, nice view of mountains and overlooking skating rink, kitchen well supplied but bring own cooking oil, butter, condiments, etc...only thing there was salt. Comfortable king bed. Had queen sheet on, sideways...kinda strange. Many, many channels on tv. Excellent access from underground garage to ski lockers and rooms. Very nice rec room with two pool tables, usually available. Nice hot tubs. Rate was great! Overall, I would certainly stay here again. With a few minor improvements, I would have no complaints at all!

Manager Response:
Thank you for staying with Summit County Mountain Retreats! We appreciate fair and honest reviews. We agree that most of your issues should not have happened. By way of an explaination (not an excuse) you booked during the absolute peak time and this year was much busier than the past several. Thus, this pushed our staff to the limits and some things were not as good as the should have been. We apologize for any inconvienence! Regarding a couple of your specific comments, we are working on improving the Internet. The sofa bed was recently serviced, but we will check it again. We do clearly state in our rental agreement that cooking supplies are NOT provided due to saftey concerns. Overall though, we completely agree that you should have had a better experience with our service. We can and will do better!

Awesome location!

Review by Jadyne S.

The condo was dusty and the sofa bed was broken so the kids had to sleep on an air matress. The carpet was very dirty, which made sleeping on the floor unpleasant. The condo amenities were good though. The only complaint I had is that every day when I went downstairs to the common area, the cleaning staff was cleaning with a very strong, odorous chemical, so I couldn't stay down there too long. Downstairs was the only area where I could get the wifi to work.

I'll start with the exceptional, helpful, and frindry staff; they made the booking process enjoyable and seamless. We had a forth floor room with super views of the Aspen coverd slopes which were beautiful. Our room was furnished nicely with a full kitchen and there was even wine and chocolates waiting when we arrived! WE thuroughly enjoyed our stay.

This was a great location to access the outdoors as well as restaurants within walking distance. It was low-key and provided a DVD player and kitchen for a night in watching a movie and cooking dinner. I would recommend this location.

Only 1 Complaint

| 4 out of 5 stars
Review by Robyn V.

Hi, The only issue I had with the rental was that I did not realize "Summit County Mountain Retreats" was a rental company. It was very unclear to me that our hotel was actually by a different name. This caused frustration when my husband and I tried to use our GPS to get to the area. The address you offer does not come up in a Garmin, your "resort" was not the resort name, and when I look back at ALL of my paper work I do not recognize the resort name at all. It would be very helpful to sight the physical address and formal name of the hotel on the receipt. This would eliminate the frustration.Also, when frustrated on a Sunday afternoon there is nobody to contact as your direct number has limited coverage. We felt somewhat helpless!We finally figured things out and enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you.

Manager Response:
Since this property is located in the mountains, navigation systems do not always show proper directions. We e-mail detailed directions to each guest, and the e-mail asks the guest to make sure to print the attachment as directions are included. The lodge name and number are included on your rental agreement and receipt. We are sorry this was not clear. We do have 24/7 maintenance, but after hours calls are taken by on call staff, and thus it is possible that on a Sunday afternoon a return call will be delayed. We do have staff in the office during regular business hours 7 days a week. Just to clarify, Summit County Mountain Retreats is the manager for the owner, and we do not rent hotels. We rent privately owned condos in the Keystone resort. We are always happy to assist our guests, but the service and experience we offer is different from a hotel.

Sorry just too small for 4 people. need to update tv's and get rid of tv cabinets to provide more room. we had to move the dining table every night into the kitchen to sleep.

Review by Lasinda C.

Our condo was awesome, the ability to have my son walk out w/ his boarding gear and go right to the slopes was so covenient. The Condo fit us perpectly and was very pretty. If we had to say anything it would be; clean the furniture and cushions more, I dropped a pillow on the floor from the chair and so much dust came off of it, the shower head definitely needs to be updated and the vent in the bathroom was covered with dust as though it hadn't been cleaned in years. Thank you for the ability to let you know these things.

Coming from Southwest New Mexico, the Buffalo Lodge is perfect for summer getaway. Located in the middle of the River Run Village, one could not ask for a more perfect place to spend the last of the summer. Absolutely gorgeous views, fresh air, beautiful blue skies, clean and friendly atmosphere. I am in love with Keystone, Colorado and the River Run Village! This is my 2nd summer and i'll be back next year! Thank you so much!
