Had great time enjoying the earl November runs. Great location next to the village and the slopes. The pool and hot tub were $ after a day of boarding.

Dakota Lodge for Bacon and Bourbon Festival

Review by Ned S.

Got to office for early check in. Condo was clean and ready to go but we were informed we would have to wait until 3:00 unless we paid an early check in fee. I asked why and they said "paying for extra time in condo" and "all the hotels do it". I travel extensively for work and have NEVER been asked to pay a fee to check in early. It's either available or not.Thankfully another lady walked up and told the first one to give us the key early without a fee. First lady was reluctant but finally gave us key. Nickel and dime BS like this will make me look elsewhere for rentals.

My wife and I along with a friend decided to enjoy the late season skiing at Abasin. We heard that snow was plentiful and to find accommodations so close to the skiing at a reasonable price was icing on the cake.

Review by Gina O.

Great location very close to gondola, shops and restaurants. We loved our stay here and would recommend it when travelling to Keystone. Apartment is very cozy but a bit smaller than expected. Could use some updates in kitchen but overall well equipped.

Review by melanie c c.

For $320 a night the condo was in poor condition. Couch cushions dirty and lopsided(uncomfortable). Shower heads in both bathrooms need replacing, 2nd Bath door knob doesn't latch. Teflon pots scraped up. Cigarette butts on outside balcony. Blind on sliding door to balcony broken. Dirty fireplace glass. Broken knobs on drawers. Refrig door with broken bars. Only one ski locker key. This place needs TLC. The positive was the view from balcony.

Manager Response:
We are sorry this guest experienced issues. We were made aware of these issues while the guest was staying with us. We addressed all issues on the same day they were reported.

This is a great location right at the bottom of the River Run gondola. Quick walk to the slopes and ample places to eat. The condo was clean, functional and has a great view of the mountain.

We really enjoyed our time at river run. Condo is dated but clean and well kitchen is well equipped. As many others have noted the main bathroom door latch needs to be replaced. Location location location!!!!

Best Location on the Mountain

Absolutely wonderful place to stay! Comfy beds, walk in bathrooms, comfortably sleeps 6. AMAZING ViEWS of mountain from rooms and balcony

Great Location

| 4 out of 5 stars

River Run is right in the middle of everything so location is wonderful. Unfortunately, construction of the main "square" was underway and only 4 or 5 shops were open. Condo was in good shape except for main bathroom door would not latch closed so would swing open while in use and the blinds on the sliding glass door to balcony would not stay up. Other than that, price, location, amenities, etc. were all good! Luckily we were leaving early morning as the elevators were to be shut down for a month and we would have had to haul everything up/down 4 flights.

Dakota 8514

| 3 out of 5 stars

Clean, quiet, very comfortable beds, great views from private patio, well stocked kitchen, GREAT location, with nice pool and hot tubs. Dos Locos, Pizza on the Run, and Argentos - great food! Enjoyed ATV and zip-lining, both of which are at least an hour away, but well worth the drive. Wanted to complete Keystone scavenger hunt, but it is no longer offered even though listed in print advertising and internet advertising. Unit requires some TLC - floors were being re-done because there were gaps between carpeting, hard wood, and tile. Wood blinds wouldn't open quite right, toilet in master bathroom needs adjustment, handle to guest bathroom needs adjustment to close.

Manager Response:
Thank you for the feedback. We will have our maintenance staff look into each issue mentioned. We're glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise!

Perfect Condo in River Run area

Rental Mgmt company is terrific. Easy check in and check out. Very nice unit.


| 4 out of 5 stars
Review by Ron P.

We love area (Dakota and Buffalo lodge) walking distance to River run and plenty of food and activities. Great pool, hot tub, and Sauna. This unit is a little tired, carpets and mattresses need to be replaced. Honestly for amount per night this unit needs updating. As I said can't beat location and rental company was great and made check-in fairly easy. I would rent again but might look for something updated. Oh and please do something about elevator as speed is terrible.

Manager Response:
Thank you for the feedback. We will pass it along to the homeowner. We only manage the vacation rental, not the building. The HOA manages the building, including the elevator. We're glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise and hope to host you again!

Fun place to visit

Review by Marlenes B.

Keystone is a wonderful place to visit and this is the a great to stay. The unit is located close to the mountain and all of the great activities Keystone has to offer. The unit is fully equipped with everything you need for great weekend get away. The staff at Summit Mountain are very friendly and very helpful. Any issue we had was immediately rectified. We are looking forward to our next visit.

Great place!

Review by rodrigo l.

The place is great. The location is perfect. The building is a little old and they should provide more cleaning service. And better maintenance. The elevator is a constant problem. A ventilator in the kitchen is urgent, every time we cooked, the fire alarm starts singing.

Nice place in a beautiful area

| 5 out of 5 stars

Rental was nice. Everything we needed. A few minor issues, ( low water pressure in the showers, and just a little updating would be nice.). Location was perfect for us, centrally located between everything we wanted to see. Beautiful area! Loved Rocky Mountain National Park ( a little more than 2 hour drive), Hanging lake was incredible! ( another 2 hour drive ). Breckenridge was very nice, many shops and we took a gondola ride up the mountain. We've never been to the mountains before. Even with a little smoke haze from fires out west they were still breathtaking!

Review by Kathleen F.

Overall, the unit was reasonably priced and in decent shape. However, the unit clearly needs basic maintenance and repair with broken cabinet doors in the kitchen, shower nozzles not putting out water consistently, toilets not flushing well, carpet needs to be replaced. Other units for the same cost which other family members stayed in were in much better condition.

I had a wonderful stay and would recommend anyone to stay.

Good location, some wear on the property

| 4 out of 5 stars

This is a well located unit in the heart of River Run. Quiet, overlooking the pool, and with an excellent view of the slopes. The unit is clean. However the furniture and fixtures show signs of wear. The chairs are wobbly, the bathroom door does not stay closed and cannot be locked from inside. Some of the heating plates on the stove are really out of alignment. The kitchen sink faucet feels like it can break off at any moment.

Excellent condition

Great location

| 5 out of 5 stars

Our condo was in a beautiful setting and great location and had everything we needed. River Run Village is perfect. However, the unit itself was in need of more detailed cleaning. THe carpet has a big stain, the grout in the shower was very dirty, and the kitchen and tub faucets were very loose.

Great Deal for the Money

Review by Karen N.

So many great things to say about this property! My favorite thing was the private balcony (not adjacent to any other balconies) with an gorgeous view of the mountains and ski runs. Kitchen was well equipped; we also loved that the unit included fans, humidifiers, and down comforters. The location in River Run Village was perfect in that you could easily walk there in two minutes, but were far enough away for privacy. Finally, highest compliments to the Summit County Mountain Retreats staff. Everyone I spoke to was super friendly and helpful; when I did encounter an issue, William went above and beyond to resolve in a spectacular fashion. Will definitely stay here again!

Adequate but small

| 4 out of 5 stars
Review by Kathleen H.

This is a nice complex, and is an adequate space for 4 adults, however we had 5. When you open the sofa bed the living space is gone, so whoever gets this sleeping space should be the last to go to bed and the first up. Usually in a rental of this type you have some basic spices etc, not so here. There was enough coffee for one pot, sugar and a few packets of creamer along with salt and pepper. If you are actually planning on cooking meals, bring all spices etc needed for your stay.

We had a lovely time. This unit was close to activities and the bike trail. underground parking and a great pool and hot tubs with views of the mountains but since it was a floor above passers by, it was private. Nice unit, well equipped, nice balcony with view.

Nice place to stay with great views of the slopes & easy access to River Run Gondola. We arrived late (10:30pm) and had no problem getting our keys & finding the condo. Management was very responsive when we sought to extend our stay past normal checkout & worked it out for us

Review by M. Heidi M.

In addition to a top notch visit in summit county, Kris from Summit County Mountain Retreats went the extra distance weeks later. My sister in law couldn't remember the name of a fun card game that was in the condo we rented. We enjoyed playing the game during down time in the condo and my SiL wanted to get a copy for my nephew. No one in our family could remember the name of the game. I emailed SCMR and Kris got back to me and found out the name of the game for us - Skip Bo. :-). You don't often find such friendly folks to work with in these very busy times. Thanks Kris!!!! -heidi

great condo, parking situation questionable

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Cassandra B.

Everything with the condo was great. The view is great. It says on the management company's paperwork to ask for an extra parking pass if you need one. We called to ask for an extra one and we were told "we do give out extra passes but it will be at your own risk since keystone only allows one per condo and you could be towed". Ummmm then it's not really a parking pass then is it?

Good location, great views

Review by David H.

We stayed in unit 8514 at Dakota Lodge from 2/26/14-3/6/14. It is a 2 bedroom/2 bath condo on the 4th floor facing the slopes. Overall the condition was good and everything was in working order. The price was good and everything went off without a hitch. Keystone is a great place for families. We visited a gold mine in Breck, did the tubing hill (highly recommend), the snow fort, did the fondue at Der Fondue Chessel (expensive but fun), and visited the Rec center in Silverthorne. You can also snowmobile or do a dog sled trek both of which are expensive although snowmobiling can be good fun depending on the tour. We have found the dog sled treks to be lame. And of course we skied which is always a blast and this condo is within 1000 ft from the lifts. I would love ski in and ski out but there are few of these in Keystone and they are much more expensive. While Keystone generally gets less snow than Breck we have found it less crowded and I hate crowds. We had no lift lines of significance during our 2 week stay. Overall this condo was good, but I have to say that I stayed in the corner unit next to this one for the last three years (unavailable this year) and it was in better condition and had a larger floor plan at about the same price.

Something stood out to me...

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Leon K.

The condo was great - a view of the slope, overlooking the pool/hot tub area. Parking is convenient. Rentals only a few feet from the building. Groceries available within a block. I was most impressed with Keystone in general. We bought three day tickets for everyone but two members of our group chose not to ski after the first day. With no fuss we were refunded the two unused days on the lift tickets and the two unused days for the ski rentals. So many places would not have refunded unused lift and rental fees and I am eager to return to Keystone.Great condo, great community and a great experience for me and my family.

A Very Happy Thanksgiving 2013.

Review by Jeffrey B.

This was the first time that my wife and 2 daughters (ages 12 & 14)had ever been out West. We are from Florida and use to vacationing at the beaches and mountains in the Southeast. We were pleasantly surprised to find the driving conditions to be mild with no ice and less steep roads than we have found in the Smokey Mountains. Everything at River Run was first class; the rooms were very nice and clean, the village was perfect (with shops & restaurants), and we couldn't stop talking about how nice everyone was on our vacation. We are very protective of our teenage daughters, but felt comfortable allowing them to go out into the village by themselves to shop and explore. My wife and I enjoyed the skiing. It was much different than what had experienced close to home. The slopes were much longer and the lift lines were much shorter. Overall, it was a very relaxing and enjoyable vacation that our family will remember always.

Overall positive

| 4 out of 5 stars

This unit was comfortable and had the items we needed for our stay, although the carpet needs to be cleaned. We had some difficulty using the remote controls for the tv in the living room, but finally figured it out. We never got the tv in the second bedroom to work. Although we didn't use them, the pool and hot tubs looked very well maintained and inviting.

Manager Response:
Thank you for staying with us. The carpet is being cleaned now. We are sorry it was dirty. We will send maintenance to look at the TV. We provide 24/7 maintenance services for your convenience while staying with us.

Beautiful Place

| 5 out of 5 stars

Beautiful location that can't be beat! Close to amenities and fun activities. Really the only less than satisfying aspect of our lodging was the keycards used to get everywhere--they were very sensitive to how you swiped them, so it often took us several tries to get into any door.Other than that, a great place to stay!

We will be back!

Review by Chris J.

This was our first experience with this management company and with . We were a little concerned having never used either. I don't think we could have had a better experience. This unit offers a great River Run location just seconds from the shops, restaurants, and activities. The view of the slopes from both bedrooms, the living room, and the balcony was terrific. Everything was as advertised. We strongly recommend this management company and in particular this unit for your next stay in the Keystone area.

Manager Response:
Thank you for your glowing recommendation. We really appreciate amazing guests like you. It makes us feel like we are able to make the world just a little better.

Review by Harold H.

The condo was very clean. One of the blinds in the living room was broke. The hotub was very nice and big. The discount for the ski equipment was very helpful to cut cost. The mattress on the fold out couch was not comfortable.I would recommen this condo for a couple.

Review by Karen M.

Excellent view of slope, which really helped since I wasn't able to ski. We did have to leave a day early, so hated paying for an extra day that we didn't get to use, but that was our fault due to flight schedule. Had my two nephews with us who had never been to Colorado and they had the time of their lives!

Overall, this was a great deal on a property in the middle of Keystone Village River Run. the property has an excellent view of the mountains and overlooks the pool area.
