Enjoyable Stay

| 5 out of 5 stars

We stayed three nights at the Dakota Lodge. It had everything we needed for our stay. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub. The view from our unit was beautiful.

Great Spot

Review by Jessica A.

Love staying at Dakota Ridge and enjoying the pool and hot tub. Also like the open setup and cozy bed.

Love the Dakota!

| 5 out of 5 stars

Vacation was great! The property management was quick to respond and very helpful. Place needed a little TLC, but the bed was very comfortable. Will def be back at the Dakota and Keystone.

Great Place Close to Keystone and A Basin

Review by Christianne R.

We rented this place for a quick summer skiing getaway. Perfect location, great amenities and plenty of room for three people.

First Ski trip

| 4 out of 5 stars
Review by Paul M.

Pros: Location was excellent. The balcony view looking north toward Dillon was great. Room was quiet and comfortable. Parking was safe and secure.Cons: Slow elevator; oven in the bedroom is thinly disguised as a bed; to many players in the game(Summit County Mountain Rentals, Red Awning, SnowPak), leads to renter confusion and the players don't seem to know what each other are doing or charging. Very frustrating. So Caveat Emptor!

Nice mountain stay

Review by Shelly T.

Room was comfortable and property extremely convenient for skiing, dining, shopping - no need to drive anywhere!

Wonderful Place - Just Wish the Fireplace Worked

| 4 out of 5 stars
Review by Courtney M.

2nd time staying at River Run Village. There is no place better to stay. Hands down. Our first time renting with Summit County Mtn Retreats. I'll give it a 3.5 out of 5 stars and here's our only bad things to say... First, the gas fireplace unit repeatedly did not work. We had maintenance out twice in a week stay. Called immediately Sunday night when we checked in w/wet snowboard gear to dry in front of the fire. It wasn't working, we tried lighting the pilot light ourselves, etc. Maintenance came out sometime Monday night to fix it. They were back on Wednesday night to continually try and fix it. We think it just needs to be replaced as it's clearly faulty. The only other "bad thing" by using Summit County Mtn Retreats is our keycard got demagnetized at some point. We had to drive TO their offices - .5 miles away - to get it fixed. Just a little annoyance, especially with all the snow (5 feet in a week, epic), walking wasn't a possibility and driving wasn't ideal. Wish we could've gone to the main registration building to handle it, but we couldn't. Just a minor annoyance in an overall great stay.

Thanksgiving ski Trip

| 4 out of 5 stars
Review by Curt D.

Condo location was great as expected and for the most part the unit was fine. I have stayed a number of times in various units and I must say this particular unit was my least favorite. This unit needs some maintenance. There was a missing blind over the patio door which made the mornings very bright for the person sleeping on the pullout sofa. The sofa itself has a mattress that is in need of replacement. It is so worn it provides virtually no support whatsoever. We actually ended up purchasing an air mattress. Last, most units provide a humidifier and this unit was no different but the humidifier did not work and needs a serious cleaning and descaling. All in all the unit is a good location and in good shape other than these three issues.

Review by Ashley C.

Overall, the stay was great! Didn't need too much, so it served us well. Used toiletries, worn carpets with exposed nails, and the cleaning crew coming prior to check out were my only negatives. Great view and location!

Manager Response:
Thank you for the feedback. We will have our staff look at the issues and we're sorry housekeeping arrived before check-out time.

Best honeymoon package out there, had a blast!

It was top quality! Best Honeymoon package out there!

Absolutely Perfect

Won't stay at any other place in the future. Dakota Lodge was the perfect place to stay for our keystone vacation!

Review by Ralph P.

Great location. Pool and hot tub are great. Sofa bed was not clean (found tissues behind cushions). Need more complete kitchen/cooking utensils (no spatula or non-stick pan)

Great location Great price

Review by Kiki L.

The management was a great help for us to find a last min lodge to stay. This unit is in a fantastic location (at river run). Walking distance to the gondola. We are very pleased to stay there.

Great Place

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Cody K.

This was a great place to stay for a few days. It was exactly as described. Check in and check out were very easy. There was some minor damage to walls/furniture, but that is probably to be expected with people going in and out so often. Otherwise, I would definitely book again when I get back to Summit County.

Short Stay in Keystone

Check in was very easy. Directions were very clear. The condo was very clean everything was well stocked. Could have used more glasses and certain other kitchen items. But otherwise it was perfect

Escape from Harvey

Review by Lydia H.

Easy check in and clean as described condo with great western mountain views. SCMR were great with expanding and later changing our stay due to flight issues with the Hurricane. Fantastic value and perfect get away from August heat. Very quiet resort during week. Great to have restaurants within walking distance after hiking, biking and rafting.

We liked the unit and location very much. It needs some attention however. Kitchen cabinet door hinges are handing loose. Needs some new drinking glasses. Linens and towels were great.

Very nice property right in the heart of keystone and next next to the mountain. Clean and quiet with everything you need including heated underground parking. Two nice hot tubs and a pool. Ski lockers.

As good as expected, from the instructions to the unit, cleanliness and location. Love Keystone and the condo. This is our second time at the Dakota Lodge. First time in a 2 bedroom condo. When going back to Keystone will come back to Dakota Lodge.

Excellent location. Comfortable master. Clean room. Horribly uncomfortable pullout bed. Average stock of kitchen supplies; pots, pans, no containers for leftovers

Great trip

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Ivana B.

This location is great, very convenient ski in/ski out. Nice outdoor heated pool and hot tub with a great view. The underground parking garage is is very convenient, we were able to check out and ride the last day of our trip with access to the parking garage to change and pack our stuff at the end of the day. Overall great location, we will definitely be staying there again.

River Run

Review by Jonathan B.


Dakota Lodge

| 4 out of 5 stars

Very nice place overall. Only issue was that there were only 3 spoons (one had been damaged by garbage disposal), and only 3 very small wine glasses (like champagne glasses). Also, having to pay extra to extend check-out time seemed obsessive (either you can or can't extend, but you shouldn't have to pay extra).

Nice condo!

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Scott A.

No complaints. We stay at River Run quite a bit, and this unit was just above average.

Keystone weekend

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Douglas H.

Was great. Would do it again.

Great Location!

| 4 out of 5 stars

This was a great little condo in the River Run area, and it was very convenient to shops and restaurants. It was very clean, and the kitchen was updated. We had a problem with the windows coming up their track, but the maintenance person came out quickly to fix it. The only negative with renting through Summit County Mountain Retreats were all the rules/fees with checking in early or checking out late - this was more restrictive than VRBO rentals which will let you adjust your times if the unit is not busy...without fees.

Cousins Snowboarding Weekend

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Grace C.

My questions were answered promptly and they were very helpful with my questions and concerns prior to the stay. The property and pictures were on point regarding the room we rented. The room was clean and well-maintained. I would definitely recommended the property to anybody staying in Keystone. The rental was extremely close to the lifts and the bus system, and it made our days easier and convenient. Because I usually have trouble sleeping on vacations, I have to say the bed was great. I didn't have any trouble sleeping.

Location and view are perfect

Review by Robert M.

This was the perfect spot to get away for 2 nights. Perfect walking distance to the gondola and there is a good view from the balcony. This had everything we needed for a stay at Keystone.

Cozy and great location

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Jill D.

Location right at River Run Village was very convenient. Quick walk to village, nice views and easy access to shuttles. Unit was clean and cozy. King bed with good linens was a huge plus. White fluffy towels a nice touch. This is a great unit for a couple.

So Cozy

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Brianna S.

The rental was lovely. Clean and super cozy, exactly what we wanted. We were super close to everything and had no problems at all. The only thing I would complain about was an advertised discount, in the check in packet, if we went through Mountain View Sports Rentals to rent our ski equipment. Going to this place was the only unpleasant experience we had. The Condo itself was excellent! Would definitely stay again!

Very nice

| 4 out of 5 stars
Review by Pamela B.

the unit was very nice and clean. There were only a couple of things wrong. Lamp in bedrooms next to bed did not work. The other thing was that couch/sofa sleeper. That couch is most uncomfortable its sags terribly. We noticed it was mentioned quite a few times in the guest register dating back some years. Owner should step up and get a new couch! I probably would come back to Dakota Lodge but not this unit. Also I left a small makeup bag in bathroom, I called and left message and the recording said anything under three pounds was $12.50 to mail home. For something that weighs less than half a pound I find that excessive.

Great vacation getaway!

| 5 out of 5 stars

This place was perfect for us! It had all of the amenities we needed and the location was great. Everything was very convenient, relatively quiet, and we really enjoyed the view. We would definitely come back again.:)

great weekend!

Review by Jennifer H.

We really enjoyed staying at the Dakota Lodge. It was very clean and convenient to the square. We loved the amenities!

Wonderful View and Close to the Action

| 5 out of 5 stars

The condo itself is quite small but good for 2 people. It was immaculately clean. The selection of TV channels was good, and the Internet worked well. We were there for the Bluegrass and Beer festival, and the location could not have been better. The complex has a super nice pool area. We would rent this condo again. The management company was professional, helpful, and friendly.

Cozy Condo with a Great View

Review by Kerry O.

Everything was great. The condo is perfect for a couple. It's close to everything in River Run Village and has a tremendous mountain view from the balcony. Management was very accommodating.

Great place for a skiing vacation

| 4 out of 5 stars

Generally we enjoyed the condo. It was in a great location and we felt at home at Dakota. The fireplace pilot light went out and Dawn from Summit County came to the rescue so it worked the rest of the trip. The coffee maker stopped working our last day so we had to buy overpriced coffee in the village. The cleaning could also have been better. It looked like some of the hidden places like under the couch and the corners hadn't been vacuumed in a while. We cooked there a few nights and had eggs every day for breakfast. Most of the essentials were there for us to use during our stay. The bed and fold out couch were both very comfortable. It was awesome to just have to walk down the stairs to the heated pool and hot tub!!

Perfect vacation spot!

The reviews and description of this place don't serve it justice. Everything about the place was great. The condo was roomy and clean and up to date. We stayed at a time where there was hardly anyone in the town of Keystone but the place itself was wonderful!

Great stay at this condo

Review by Bryan H.

My wife, daughter, and I spent a great week at this condo in early July. The weather was perfect and we slept with the windows open at night. A great touch was that the condo had a slow cooker available. The condo is in great condition and our daughter said the sleeper sofa was very comfortable. Would definitely stay at this unit again.

We enjoyed staying in this condo! It was an easy walk to the gondola, shops and resteraunts. We had no problems with directions or checking in, and the management company seemed very professional. The dip in the jacuzzi in the snow was fantastic after a day of riding fresh powder. I would recommend this unit to anyone, and hope to stay there again!

Now That I Understand The Lay of the Land, I'd Go Back.

| 4 out of 5 stars
Review by Amy S.

One thing that would have made my stay better was better maps of the area. Without a front desk person to ask, and the fact that you pull in underground, things really have to be spelled out. I was very confused about where the pond in the picture on the website was and eventually asked someone only to find out it was at a different resort. Now that I understand the lay of the land I would return. The kitchen could have used a few more basics, like a cookie sheet. There was a cracker on the floor which said to me it unit was only spot vacuumed.

This is a very nice clean place in a good location. It is certainly not 5 star but nice, basic and clean. We had no issues while staying there and had a great time.

Family ski vacation

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Fernando V.

Walking distance from the slopes and the village. Great view. Everything was wonderful, new and clean. We enjoyed the fireplace very much. Only the couch wasn't very comfortable. A vacuum cleaner would have been nice. Also, there wasn't a lot of closet space.

A Great Family Thanksgiving!

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Courtney H.

We loved everything about our stay! The only complaint that I would have would be the quality of the sofa as it is old and worn and there are feathers coming from the cushions. Also, I would suggest a small vacum in the unit for guests. Otherwise, we loved our stay and will be back very soon!

Manager Response:
Thank you for staying with us. We will pass your feedback on to the owner.
