Buffalo Lodge #8398



This 950 square foot Luxury 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom condo (sleeps eight) was completely renovated in the fall of 2018. The homeowner has installed an evaporative cooler for use during the summer. Renovations includes high-end finishes of new flooring, granite countertops throughout, sinks, hardware, paint, furniture, lighting, accessories and more.

WALK TO SLOPES. Located in the heart of River Run Village, you’re steps away from the ski slopes, shopping, restaurants, nightlife, and local festivities. Don’t worry about shuttling or parking. Just park in your heated garage and you are steps away from the gondola!

INCREDIBLE VIEWS FROM YOUR CONDO. The private balcony is just off of the living area. Enjoy breathtaking views of the famous Gore Mountain Range, as well as partial ski slope views. This also overlooks Dercum Square-home to an ice rink during the winter months and a miniature golf course during the summer.

LUXURIOUS TOUCHES. The entryway offers mounted hooks and a bench for your convenience. The living area features a 49" LED TV mounted above a gas fireplace and a queen-sized sleeper sofa. The sleeper sofa mattress is brand-new with the best memory foam mattress out there. It is the same mattress used in several 5-star luxury hotels. The ottoman converts into a table top with 2 benches for extra seating; perfect for cozying up around the fire to play a game of cards! For those music fans, we added a Sonos music system for you.

FULL SPACIOUS KITCHEN. Enjoy a full-sized kitchen, stocked with all the essential cookware and tableware to make a meal away from home. It features new brushed-finish granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The dining area comfortably seats 4 with 3 additional seats at a custom-made table. Great for Families! It is so easy to come back to your condo for a quick lunch!

SLEEPS 8. The master bedroom features a king-sized bed and a mounted LED TV. The en suite bathroom has granite countertops with new double sinks and hardware, a shower/tub combination, and a door leading to a separate toilet area. The guest bedroom has a queen-sized bed with two twin trundles that pull out on both sides and a LED TV. The trundle mattresses are custom made with 8 inch high density foam, which is just as comfortable as a normal mattress. The guest bathroom is just off the main living area. It has a pedestal sink and a shower/tub as well. Both bathrooms are stocked with towels and an initial supply of toiletries.

Very beautiful views and clean rooms.

Fun, central space for a summer in the mountains

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Krista W.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Buffalo Lodge this past month- the space is charming and is in PRIME location for Keystone activities. We were able to pop in/out the room while exploring Keystone village and the mountains. The room was well stocked, we only had to ask for batteries for the remote and the condo group quickly responded to our need. Very pleased with their services, would consider staying here again!

Excellent Vacation Facilities

Review by Susan W.

It was a family reunion retreat. It had everything available for all ages to enjoy.


| 5 out of 5 stars

We stayed here for our nephew's wedding. It was clean, comfortable and suited all of our family needs. Everything you could possibly want is within the River Run complex. Look forward to coming back.

Great location for Keystone/A-Basin

Review by Ronald O.

Late season ski trip. Great location and clean ski condo at the base of Keystone. Mgmt was easy to contact when we locked ourselves out.

Great Stay!

Review by Ashley M.

We stayed in this rental for a week with 3 other friends (total 5 people). The rental is spacious and well equipped. We were within minutes of the gondola. The only downside was that the pull out couch was broken. The staff addressed our concerns the same day and unfortunately we were unable to use it, but we used the mattresses from the trundle bed on the floor as out back up. Beds were super comfy. Kitchen is well stocked. Keystone is our favorite place to vacation! SCMR has always been wonderful!

A Winter Winderland!

Review by Jennifer G.

I couldn’t have been more pleased with the room and location of the condo. I will definitely be staying here again. Upon arriving at the room my keys didn’t work and the staff brought me a new set within about 15 mins. Once in the room it was exactly as the pictures show - clean, beautiful, amazing view! The location of the lodge is perfectly in the center of river run, within a 2-min walk to coffee and the grocery store. Just a couple more minutes and you’re at the ski lift. I highly recommend this condo!

Mountain Comfort

Review by Ryan M.

This condo was perfect!! Nestled in the ski village. A short elevator ride puts you right in the middle of the action. Under ground parking was amazing. As for the room. Nice 2 bed 2 bath condo with a great balcony. Very comfortable. Will be booking in the near future.

Great Place to Stay

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Dianne M.

The location of the condo makes it a perfect place to stay since it is located in the ski village. You are close to shops and restaurants so you can walk to most places. The condo had everything in it that you would need for your vacation. Would definitely stay here again!!

Great Location and Stay

Review by Jeff F.

Perfect for a calm summer Keystone get away. In the warm months of July and August remember to keep the windows up and close the shades in the afternoon since no AC.

Manager Response:
Update: As of July 2019, the homeowner has installed an evaporative cooler for use during the summer.

Great location!

| 4 out of 5 stars
Review by Justin W.

Our experience was solid. Great place and even better location. The rooms were a bit hot without AC, but we failed to find the fans until it was too late. Those managing the property were super attentive and the late checkout policy was unmatched. I would definitely recommend this place for a summer rental and I'm sure even better for the winter.

Convenient and welcoming

| 5 out of 5 stars

We loved this little home from home. The apartment was clean and well-provisioned with anything you might need (except egg cups for our soft boiled eggs). It was warm and comfortable and within easy walking distance of the lifts and the shops. We did ask for the windows to be cleaned during our stay - they were pretty dirty - which didn't happen although we did get a response saying they would try to make it happen. It didn't detract from the holiday but it would have been nice to have a clear view of the view! I would add an Idiot Guide on how to work the TV to the apartment as it wasn't obvious how to work the DVD/TV combo and the online instructions were generic or vague.

If it was better, it would have cost more.

Review by Stephen H.

The unit was somewhat dated and could some upgrading but when considering the cost, it was a good deal and it served my purpose very well.

Great Condo

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Lindsay D.

Wonderful accommodations!! Clean and has everything you need for a ski trip! Ski/snowboard lockers on the first level. Less than a 5 min walk to the Gondola.

Great stay

Property was as described with a great view, nice furnishings, and convenient location.

Great ski vacation

| 4 out of 5 stars
Review by Marcus H.

Loved the convenience to the gondola! The condo is very nice and comfortable.Only a few wishes. Lighting in the main bedroom poor. a light in the closet would help!Also it would be nice to have another dresser with drawers to store clothes. Would diffinately stay here again!!! Everything would have been 5 stars otherwise. Carpet not real clean, but can be understandable due to traffic.

Great location!

Everything we were looking for in a condo rental...close to the slopes, food, and had a great hangout area in the lobby!

Quick getaway

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Tanya G.

Our stay was great. Everything was easy from booking to picking up our key and parking. The only small thing was that we had requested two parking passes. Luckily, I double checked while getting my keys because there was only one in the envelope. It was fixed quickly, however it would’ve been a hassle had I already left.The room was as described. It was very cozy. The pullout couch was extremely uncomfortable. A mattress topper would be nice. My teenage son was unphased by the bed, but my daughter wanted no part of it.The location of this property is perfect, so close to restaurants, shopping and the gondola.

Great views!

Review by Jenny B.

My family of 6 enjoyed our 4 day stay in the Lodge! Although many of the shops and the mini golf were closed for the season, we appreciated having the heated pool and the hot tubs almost to ourselves! The Lodge was clean, comfortable and roomy enough for 2 adults and 4 children. The amenities in the kitchen included everything we needed to cook and prepare our meals. Great experience! We will definitely stay here in the future if we pass through the area again!

Incredible Location!

This was an absolutely gorgeous condo. I will be back for sure with my family.

Great Place to Call Home for a Spell

| 5 out of 5 stars

The accommodations were comfortable, well equipped, and clean. Minor detail--coffee supplied was for a small single-cup machine but the coffee maker was a 12 cup. Either supply a bag and filters or supply no coffee.

Nice condo situated close to restaurants, shopping, and the lift. Overlooks the putt putt golf in the summer. Spacious and comfortable with lots of ammenities

Great location short distance to pool!

| 5 out of 5 stars

Great view and short distance to pool. Only negative was it got a little warm in July in the afternoon/ evening, but the fans helped keep it comfortable.

Memorial Weekend Treat

| 5 out of 5 stars

Very pleasant and comfortable stay. The condo is perfect with all the necessary amenities and a fabulous view. We appreciate the owner's sharing it with us. Unbelievable snow at A-basin this time of year made for an extra special stay.

Great location, good condo but needs a little fixing up.

| 4 out of 5 stars

Loved the location. Close to skiing, Resturants and more.

We loved our stay at Buffalo Lodge. The location was perfect. The condo was a little cozy for our group but it still worked out wonderfully.

Great place to stay but warm

| 4 out of 5 stars
Review by Benjamin S.

Overall a wonderful condo, would go again. My only complaint is that it is HOT HOT HOT. We had to constantly open the patio door to cool the condo off...and that's not an issue except at night when you are trying to sleep. If you don't mind sleeping in the high mid to upper 70s, it's ok, but the heat would continue to come on even when we had the thermostat to low/ off...I'm not sure if this is a building controlled air issue or just this specific condo but either way, it was way to warm for this Texas girl who is used to the heat.

Awesomeness for family ski vacation

Right in the Heart of Keystone, such a treat!

| 4 out of 5 stars
Review by Kelly P.

We loved this unit -- it was perfect for the two of us! We wished we could've stayed a couple extra nights. Room in master bedroom was extremely comfortable. Only downfall was that the unit was very warm when we arrived, but we were told that there are no units Summit County with A/C and it was abnormally warm for the time of year.

Exactly As Expected In Keystone

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Chris M.

Enjoyed this unit during a late-season ski trip to Keystone. Exactly as expected.

condo was fine, location was great

| 3 out of 5 stars

We've stayed at a few of these condos in this location over the years. This condo has definitely seen its share of visitors, meaning the carpet was pretty stained and beat up and it had kind of a funk smell the first day we were there. The kitchen and baths were very nice and clean. The living room seemed a little worn and unclean. Overall, the location is great and the condo served its purpose.

Manager Response:
Though this guest did not inform us of any carpet issues while staying with us, we did send out maintenance to perform a spot clean. Carpet is in very good condition.

Buffalo Lodge 2016

We had a really nice time. Loved the location. Half of our keys did not work 100% of the time. The room side worked, but the other side did not work on all, but 1 key. Very family friendly!

Perfect Home away from Home

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Maureen H.

We rented this unit to be close to the Gondola. There were 4 of us and the space with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms was perfect for us. It was nicely furnished, comfortable, and conveniently located. The hot tubs and ski storage were nice as well. The property management folks were very nice, responsive and professional. My only suggestion is that it seems like the elevators need some maintenance. They were a little unpredictable. Overall we were very satisfied and would rent this unit again.

Comfortable mountain getaway

Easy, clean and exactly as described. Rental says 5 beds but you need to know that 2 beds are trundle beds under the second bed.

2015 ski trip

| 4 out of 5 stars
Review by Susan H.

Summit County was amazing! We had keys that would just stop working and they replaced them immediately. They also brought a crock pot when we asked for one. I would recommend that the TV in the living room be lowered a bit for optimum viewing and that the ski locker have a way to empty out the standing water in the bottom. All in all, I'll be renting this unit again!!

Great location and value

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Dave W.

We booked last minute and got a great deal for a two bedroom condo right in the heart of Keystone's village. You really can't beat the location! There were some minor maintenance and cleanliness issues in the condo that I reported to the management company at check out but otherwise our stay was great. The condo is well appointed, beds comfortable, and ample space for our guests. The hot tub and other amenities were great.

The unit was exactly as pictured. Great location in River Run and it was in great shape. The booking experience and key "pickup" went flawlessly. Would go through SCMR again, and in fact, already have.

Quiet visit to Keystone

| 4 out of 5 stars

we went to Keystone for a fall break getaway with our kids. It was a very quiet time of year to become there. Most things in Keystone were closed but we still enjoyed the beauty of fall and found plenty to do in the area. The condo at Buffalo Lodge was perfect. Very comfortable and a great location.

Best get a way ever.

Review by Jean H.

This was a forced vacation due to elevator in our 6 story 55+ residence being refurbished for 11 days. We live on the 6th floor, hence we looked for a get-a-way.It could not have been better, no complaints at all, we hope to return next year at this same time.

Great atay, just like the photos

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Elizabeth C.

The location was perfect. The photos were exact and didn't misrepresent. There were lots of linens and the kitchen was well stocked. One thing I didn't know is that there was no AC. However, there were lots of fans provided, and the windows let in lots of cool air. I slept well but my husband did not, so just keep this in mind.

Great condo!

| 5 out of 5 stars

We had a great vacation. This location oversees the ice skating rink/put-put course and looks towards the mountains. Very clean and spacious. We will likely return in the future!

Buffalo lodge #8398 awesome!

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Tracie J.

We had a wonderful stay in Riverrun in unit 8398 in the Buffalo lodge. The rental was clean and very comfortable for 5 adults. We would definitely recommend it. Keystone is very close to lots of activities. We enjoyed horseback riding at the Rusty Spurr Ranch. It is a true ranch with gorgeous views. Top of the Rockies ziplining was awesome and we did dog sledding too! Riverrun is a cute village and has a gondola that takes you to the top of the mountain. You can bike down the mountain. Our kids ranged 23 to 14. They loved it. We stayed in July 2014.

great place to stay!

Awesome view every morning from the balcony looking at the mountains. The master bed was very comfortable. Very clean and relaxing room!
