All in all this was a nice stay for a late-summer stay. The resort was not real busy so we could get in and out pretty easy.

Dakota 8520

Review by matthew j h.

Great location and unit, however the floors and carpet were pretty grubby. Broom/vacuum clean, but definitely not mopped or shampoo'd. Otherwise, we really enjoyed our stay.Everything was 'as advertised' and no doubt our family's experience was nothing short of great. We would certainly return to and recommend Keystone/Summit County Mountain Retreats/Dakota Lodge/unit 8520. THANK YOU


| 4 out of 5 stars

Love the double bunk beds concept. However, most of all of the furniture looked to be old. Besides the kitchen counter top and flooring being updated everything else looks to be original. The mattress in the master bedroom was not comfortable. You can hear the springs when you moved around on the bed.

good location

| 3 out of 5 stars
Review by Jeff B.

The location is excellent and the hot tubs were great. We had a couple problems when we were there. We were given 3 key cards and all worked for our condo but we had a lot of trouble using them around the grounds like outside doors and the parking garage. Also, the fire place does not work. We tried lighting and a few times we followed directions exactly and it would not light. This was a major issue because we chose this place because it had a fire place too. The place is a little dated and a few of the outlets did not work or were touchy.

Great weekend getaway

Just what we needed. We were looking for a nice last minute weekend getaway and this vacation rental fit that perfectly.

8520 Dakota Lodge

Review by Elizabeth K.

Easy to book - helpful staff. We had an issue with the coffee pot and it was replaced right away. I would suggest not stuffing the bedroom closet with items (laundry baskets, additional bedding, etc) as we had no room to put any of our stuff in there. Was a little tight - we had 4 adults and 3 kids under the age of 5, but the unit had everything we needed. You may want to consider an additional chair by the sofa- 4 adults couldn't all sit together in the living room. Great location and we loved the pool and hot tubs.

A Treasured Experience

| 4 out of 5 stars
Review by Jane M.

Dekota lodge was a great place to stay,we totaly enjoyed the location and the scenery of the mountains, it was better than i thought it would be, we loved the court yard that was right where we were staying, the shops resturants and the beauty of the snake river, it was close enough to the other surounding towns but not commercialized, the only problem we had was there was not enough towels for the five of us staying for six nights,when we asked for more towels, they said it was their day off and didn't bring the towels until it was time for us to leave, the recliner was worn out and had tears, we liked the hot tubs but dissapointed that the pool wasnt heated more , it was pretty cold, but overall we truly enjoyed staying there and would stay again

Manager Response:
Thank you for the feedback. We do offer a towel refresh for reservations 4 days or longer and we request 24 hours for delivery. We will investigate further to see if our staff mishandled your request and reinforce our standards. We're glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise.

memorial day getaway

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Jennifer H.

entire experience was great, the only problem was that the covered parking had mysteriously blocked off parking spaces which left not enough spaces for the number of visitors. I assume the mgmt got the message from the confusion as the spaces were open the next day.

Good Value for the price

| 3 out of 5 stars
Review by Lance B.

Love the location. Pool & hot tubs were great. King bed was rock hard. Couch & recliner need replacing. 1 of the stove burners was nonfunctional. Would stay in the complex again, but choose another unit.

Manager Response:
Thank you for the feedback. We will pass it along to the homeowner and have our maintenance look at the stove burner. We're glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise.

Good experience

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Quinn D.

Overall good experience. Considering the dates of my stay, I feel like i could have had two more parking passes. And I didn't know the cleaning requests as a guest, before for check out, until I got home and checked my email. I didn't know I was supposed to take out the trash and run the dishwasher. I don't check my email on vacation.

Manager Response:
Thank you for the feedback. First of all, we're glad you enjoyed your stay! Unfortunately, we don't manage any parking. The HOA for the vacation rental you reserved has specific rules and the resort manages most of the overflow lots in the area. We just pass along the requirements for these parking lots to our guests to help them avoid fines or other penalties. As these are homes instead of hotel rooms, we do ask guests to do a few things prior to checking out that help with cleaning. These requests are included in various emails, in the Guest Information Portal, and on a sign in the unit (on the fridge).

Nice off-season stay at keystone

Easy check-in process, convenient parking. Condo was efficient but a bit tight. Nice pool and hot tubs. Enjoyed our stay!

Great location

Review by Nicholas Y.

Overall location of the unit was very convenient. The building and amend work out great. Unit could benefit from some minor upgrades such as a new toaster, new appliances, etc.

Great location, small place

| 3 out of 5 stars
Review by Eric M.

The location was nice and central and easily accessible. It was a very tight squeeze for the five of us. You cannot sit at the table where they have it as you bang your head on the cabinets, so it really becomes a storage space. Additionally, the chandelier hangs extremely low right in the middle of the unit, not over the table or any furniture. We had to use a carabiner that we had and I still hit my head more than once, and I am only 6'2", Lastly, we had to call maintenance twice due to the ski locker not working.

keystone trip

Review by patrick d.

We had a great time. Condo was just what we hoped for and was perfect size for our group. Great view of sunrise over the mountain and of the slopes and village. Had everything we needed to make dinner and breakfast. Response time for anything we needed was taken care of in minutes and staff was right on it. Will definitely be looking here again. Only bummers were a couple screws loose on the guest bedroom door and the humidifiers were very loud (should replace, hard to sleep so we had to turn them off).

Perfect mountain condo

The condo was exactly as described, quaint, clean and close to everything! My son and I enjoyed staying here it is the perfect size. The laundry roomIs one door over from the room which is great.. just make sure you bring quarters!

Great family condo in a very central location

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Andie H.

This condo was clean, laid out well, and had everything we needed for our stay. We could walk out of the door and stroll through River Run, or soak in the hot tub, hit the gym or watch the kids splash in the pool. Check in and check out were super simple. We would absolutely stay here again.

Great location

| 4 out of 5 stars
Review by MONICA B.

It was a great place perfect location. The hot tub n pool was a great addition. The beds do need to be updated there like sleeping on a box spring. The bathroom sinks the facet handles on the hot water was broken. The recliner had a cut in the left arm . Other than it just needing to be cleaned a little better there was a pile of lint n dust behind the furniture it was a very nice place we plan on staying again next year hopefully

Girls Get-away Vacay

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Joanne H.

Excellent! I have used Summit County Rental in the past, the customer service is top-notch. The property description for the condo was 100% accurate, condo exceeded our expectations. Condo is well maintained, very clean, we felt like we walking into one of our own homes. The layout with queen bunk beds, large master suite and two bathrooms was perfect for our group. Kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, cookware and utensils. The mattresses were very comfortable, bed linens and bath towels were exceptional. These are not your standard hotel grade linens! Location was ideal, walk out the front door of building or through the poolside door and you a mere two minute walk to River Run Village shops and restaurants. We literally never found a need to drive anywhere; cars remained parked for the duration of our stay. The small market in River Run Village was ideal when we needed ice or soda, plus the market carries a great selection of basic groceries items to complete a full meal. If you failed to bring an item, it is likely to be found at the general store without the hassle of driving. We enjoyed spending time poolside and in hot tubs, the view is spectacular and so relaxing. Took a gondola ride to the top of the mountain for Friday Afternoon Club, though rain interrupted outdoor events, the Summit House accommodated guests indoors to enjoy live music and libations. Once off the mountain top, we enjoyed shopping and dining. We have already recommended the property to family and a friend, location is perfect for families or friend vacations. Plenty to do at affordable prices, we are already planning a return trip!

Beautiful stay; unfortunate ending

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Emily W.

The property was beautiful: Right off the chair lifts, great views, decorated well, upscale finishings, comfy beds, great hot tub. My friends and I made a great dinner and played charades and had a wonderful time. My only complaint was in the morning during check out the cleaning staff was a little rude. Check out was at 10 and they knocked at 9:59 very annoyed saying they had been waiting outside our door for 15 minutes. We apologized and asked if checkout was earlier than 10 to which they just replied that they had 5 rooms to clean today and had been waiting for us. We were in the process of leaving when they knocked and were out by 10:08. They came in 3 more times in that short time very annoyed. I fully understand we were over the checkout time and that it would make sense that someone would be there to clean the room, we just felt the way they went about it was a little rude. We had such a great time though so the good really outweighed the bad.

The location and the amenities of the Dakota Lodge were great! However, our unit could use some new mattresses and pillows!!! Otherwise it was a great unit! View was wonderful! Fully loaded with everything we needed!

Loved Our Stay!

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Tracey B.

We had a great vacation, perfect for our family as we have 3 kids and it is hard to find something that they are not always on top of each other (tweens and teens don't always want to share). Queen bunk beds and two full bathrooms helps a great deal. condo very nice, perfect view ( mountains and the pool). Was a little noisy from the pool area in the evening, til about 10:30(pool closes at 10:00), so not a huge deal to us. Also loved the short walk to gondola and river run village.

Great trip

Great Location

Condo is in great location...easy walk to gondola. Only complaint is the small size of dining table and somewhat limited kitchen utensils. Otherwise, great condo and stay.

Great 2Bedroom/2bath condo for a memorable stay!

| 5 out of 5 stars

We had a very nice two-day stay at this property. The bedrooms were well laid out and well stocked, with TVs in each bedroom and also the sitting area. The property was very clean and well maintained. The queen size bunked beds were nice for the three teenage boys we brought. The common area would be cozy for 8 people. We had only 5, but the location was easy to get to Dillon and other bike trails and has a great view overlooking the pool and Keystone mountain.

A nice getaway.

Great property with nice layout and location. Clean and accurate description of rental. Good view of front side of the mountain from balcony. This was a summer trip, but would definitely be interested in renting again during snowboarding season.

Great Stay!!!

Review by Brandi M.

Everything was wonderful with our stay. River run village is a great place for both families and couples. We rented bikes and rode paths all around the area. Didn't even get our car out the first 4 days there! (Except groceries) I highly recommend the resort and the unit we rented. In fact, I've already recommended the trip to some of my close friends.We got locked out while we were there and the management company called back right away and we were in! Very helpful!!!

Great mountain vacation location!

Review by Amber D.

We loved our stay at Dakota Lodge #8520. The unit was well equipped with kitchen equipment and extra bedding. Overall the unit was very clean, except for the floors. The only other issue was that there was only one extra roll of toilet paper in the unit. When you have 8 guests staying three nights, that could be a problem. We loved having the pool and hot tubs so close by. We definitely enjoyed our time and we will definitely book here again. The property management company double charged us, but they were very pleasant and refunded the charge as soon as we notified them.

Nice Condo

Property worked well for our family. We did a one night stay (Saturday) and enjoyed the pool, ice rink and fireworks from the upper deck. Great location. Only downfall is the late 4 pm and early 10 am checkout required.

Relaxing and Comfortable

| 4 out of 5 stars
Review by Amy M.

Our main problem occurred with the keys not working, we got stuck in the pool area and had to wait 20 minutes to get back in the building b/c there was no one to answer phones at the management company and very few people staying in the building while we were there. Other than that, we were very satisfied w/ our stay.

A quick 2 night getaway with the family!

Review by Juliette C.

Summit Mountain is very organized and certainly knows what they are doing. Best prices in town and responsive, transparent. The rental was good - spacious, bunk beds, views of the slopes, walk anywhere, great hot tubs and kids liked it so much! The master bedroom bed is super uncomfortable and I didn't even ski but me body hurt after I slept on it. More than two nights would have been a problem. The tv only worked in the living room which is fine with me but probably should get the remotes sorted out or instructions correct. The kitchen sink water pressure needed to be fixed - it was really hard to wash dishes. If the owner could fix up the condo a tad more I would stay again but it really needed more tlc. Others on the market for a similar price have been better quality same location.

Manager Response:
Thank you for staying with us. We will inspect and address each of the issues you mentioned in your review. We do offer 24/7 maintenance service and hope that guests will give us the opportunity to address their concerns while they are staying with us.

8520 is great, Summit County Mountain Retreats, the hot tub maybe

| 4 out of 5 stars

This is a 2 part review, the 1st half about the condo & Summit Cnty. Mtn. R., the 2nd about the building owners and Hot tub area. Summit was a breeze to deal with and advice was spot on. The room was great ( the queen bunks kill it). The room has a good view of the mtn. & hot tub area. The only elevator is right around the corner. A short walk to it but, far enough away so you don't hear people coming & going. The floor plan is a little tight for more than 5 adults (we were 4). The cleaning staff left some dirty dishes no biggy & 2 burners didn't function. We filled out a note for the stove. The stove was a problem for us, we like to cook to save money vs. resort $ for 3 meals. The room & beds are great, the view & location is nice. Part 2: Summit C.M.R. has no control over the hot tub area. It was a zoo Fri. & Sat. night. It was the scene from Caddy Shack , complete with Spalding & his snorkel. 1/2 the people there were not from any of the buildings that share the hot tubs/pool. (We stay at W Park, Vail, or Beaver & have seen poaching there on the wknd, just not this bad. 2 people staying here 50 renting elsewhere) It was like Pres. Day wknd, loud & crowded. Hot tub was useless if you did not get in & out pre 5 o'clock. After that the loud, pushy crew would move in & most people would just bail. Not fun or relaxing. I don't have kids & if I did, I wouldn't want them to be there. You need a parking pass in the garage area, why not a wrist band for the hot tub area. Bartender said that Sun.-Thurs. is ok, it just gets hectic on the wknd. Thurs. was good. When Summit tells you to pack a lunch, do it. Steak and lobster prices for food and strip club prices for a drink at the summit. $6 Gatorade & $4 chips. No Joke. Thanks, Vail Resorts. Plan early & plan well. To sum it up, the room was worth the money and the location is awesome. Summit County M. R. was tip top. Someone needs to get it together & eliminate the non renters from the hot tub that ruin wknd use.

Manager Response:
Thank you for staying with us and thank you for your accurate and honest assessment of your stay. The one thing that we could have done better is to assist with the hot tub issue. Though we have no direct control of the hot tubs, we can and do work with the resort to address poaching issues. We would have gladly called Keystone Security and asked them to deal with the issue. On a personal note, as an owner of a River Run property, I William Fuller (owners of Summit County Mountain Retreats), will gladly intervene for our guests in order to ensure an enjoyable stay and to maintain the family friendly reputation of Keystone. Again, we truly appreciate your patronage and your comments!

Great family condo

| 4 out of 5 stars
Review by Lara A.

We have stayed at the Dakota (and this specific unit) many times before. It's an easy walk to the gondola and restaurants. The hot tubs and pool aw great. This unit is great for families with a king in the master and queen bunks in the other. My son likes to pretend he's a bear on the top bunk. Kitchen is also well stocked. My only complaint is the mid-def, somewhat older TV in the living area. My husband was not thrilled with it for the NFL playoff weekend.

Review by Nicole H.

We truly had a wonderful time at the Dakota Lodge. The setting is absolutely breathtaking. The only negatives that we all agree on was frustration of not being able to check in until 4:00 - especially when we saw the cleaners sitting on our balcony at 2:00 smoking a cigarette. It just would have made it so nice to have that time. 4-10 is not enough time. The mattresses were rough as well. Everything else was as perfect as we could've imagined. Thanks for a great stay!

The perfect condo for an anniversary get away. The location was perfect, we were able to walk to most everything we needed. The condo was well appointed, clean and well maintained. I think it might get a little cramped with more than 4 adults, but would be great for couple and families with kids.

Dakota, mid summer

| 4 out of 5 stars

Keystone is wonderful, but a little shut down early week (Mon-Wed). Property was fun and great location. Two main issues to address in a more timely manner: 1. garbage and recycling was full and 2. pool area--trash and towels piled up an not taken care of.

Dakota lodge family of 6

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Kim G.

Loved the queen bunks. Fit family of 6 comfortably. Could fit 8 if kids are smaller. We used the kitchen a few nights and it had everything we needed (except a pizza cutter 😉 ) the walk from condo to village is short but be careful it's very icy...4 of us had a hard fall at least once, they had a sign but didn't put salt down. Pool and hot tub were great, short on towels a few times but made it work by taking our own down. Walk to gondola wasn't bad. If u want a short walk, the Springs condos are across the parking lot. This is our 2nd time at river run village and we love it BC we have 4 kids and it's convenient to lifts, ski school, restaurants.

Cozy condo

Review by Laura F.

This was our first time to Keystone. The location of the condo was great, Riverrun is the better base location I think. Easy walk to the gondola. They have little wagons all over that you can use for your skis and kids which was a big help. A few things were missing (ski locker key) or not working (poor instructions to turn on the tv) but management was right on it. Cozy condo, everything we needed.

Nice but not outstanding

| 4 out of 5 stars

This is a very nice condo as far as location and the Dakota. The bedrooms are good size and the unit is comfortable. The dining room table is very small so if you are planning to have more than four eating in the unit it will be a tight fit. The electronics are a bit dated-seriously who still has a VCR? Overall, a good place to stay for the long weekend.

Nice Place, Fun Time

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Eric J.

Overall we had a great time. The space was a little tight for a group of 8 - we slept comfortably but couldn't all be as comfy eating dinner or watching tv in the evening. Even so, I'd definitely take a group that condo again.The condo was only a 3-4 minute walk from the main gondola. There were a few places closer to stay, which would have been a bit more convenient, but overall the location was good.

Review by Christine J.

We stayed in Dakota Lodge #8520 during a recent trip to Keystone, and it was a great choice! The location was perfect...within an easy walk to the slopes, and very close to the heart of River Run village. The furniture/amenities were slightly dated, but for the price ($77/night) it was fabulous. The property management company did an excellent job of providing directions to the lodge and other useful information, and when we called to report that the fireplace wasn't working, they sent maintenance to fix it that afternoon. Overall, a great experience!

Dakota Lodge 8520

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Laura L.

Overall, it was great!!! It was perfect for 4 adults, but would have been pretty crowded with 6. The unit sleeps 6-8, but not enough sitting room in den for everyone without having to sit on bar stools from kitchen. Kitchen table also only really sits up to 4 OK, and would have to pull the table out to do that. The chandelier hanging in the den should be changed to a shorter light fixture. My son and husband are over 6' and had to be careful not to hit their head on it. Location was more than excellent and except for those few things, was a wonderful experience. Would definitely stay there again.

Had a great time. Upon arrival there was a strong marijuana smell, but it subsided within a few hours. Unit was clean and fairly nice. Fixtures and furnishings were of above-average quality, but not high-end. Good view and very convenient walking distance to the heart of river run village. Heated underground parking was also very nice.

We really enjoyed this experience. We liked the covered garage and the professionalism of the management team. There were a lot of elements that were well done - ski closet downstairs, upgraded kitchen (except no gas range), two huge bathrooms, kids playground right downstairs!

Great location and amenities

My only complaint was noise in the pool area until past midnight on Friday night. I think the pool is only supposed to be open until 10pm. Other than that I have no complaints.

The location is perfect! The room is nice but small. The master bed is not comfortable at all and the couch has seen better days. The room was clean although when we walked in there was an empty Dr Pepper bottle under the recliner so clearly the cleaning people werent very thorough. I would stay in River Run Village again because the location is excellent.

Had a relaxing stay at the condo with the family. Condo was nice and fit all 8 of us comfortable.

Great Place to pack in friends!

We had a great time here. Good pool view, and the bunk queens were both novel and a great way to minimize your cost/stay! The property was in good shape, though I was surprised: Could have used a vacuum and the dishes were still in the dishwasher. For the exorbitant cleaning fees, I would not be very happy as an owner at this.

Great time

We had a fantastic time. Enjoyed the hot tub and our kids loved the heated pool. The location was great as we could walk to the slope.

Everything was great but the process to get keys and directions to the lodge. It may seem self explanatory to someone who is from there but a new comer has no idea where the lodges are and the staff did not bother to explain this. We had to go ask

Dakota Lodge #8520 is average

location was excellent, but... we were told that the property was just cleaned but when we opened the front door it smelled like something was dead inside. The sink was full of mold and rotten food in the garbage disposal. Carpet was extremely stained and dirty.
