Dakota Lodge #8534


This spacious 780 square foot 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom penthouse condo sleeps six and is ideally located in River Run Village so you’re just steps away from shopping, restaurants and the high-speed gondola. Renovations were completed in the summer of 2018. It features vaulted ceilings, a king-sized bed, quartz counters and beautiful tile work. There is new flooring throughout. The private balcony overlooks Dercum Square that features an ice rink during the winter and a miniature golf course during the summer.

The entryway has mounted hooks and a bench for your convenience while coming and going throughout the day. The living area features vaulted ceilings and a flat screen TV next to a beautiful stone gas fireplace. There is a queen-sized Murphy bed that can be pulled down at night for additional sleeping arrangements and a new queen-sized sleeper sofa. Extra sheets and blankets are in a closet. The private balcony can be accessed from the living area and overlooks Dercum Square that features an ice rink during the winter and a miniature golf course during the summer. Beyond that are beautiful mountain views.

The full-sized kitchen is stocked with all the essential cookware and tableware to make a meal away from home and features quartz counters and stainless steel appliances. The dining area comfortably seats four and there are three additional seats at the breakfast bar. The full bathroom is located just off of the living area and has a single sink vanity and a shower/tub combination with tile surround. It is stocked with towels and an initial supply of toiletries. The bedroom features a king-sized bed and a flat screen TV. There is also a seating area near the window with beautiful views.

**Ultra-premium Linens** This unit has been upgraded with ultra-premium linens that rival those of The Four Seasons. Enjoy extra soft oversized towels and high quality bed linens that have a subtle satin stripe pattern for a look of elegance.

Review by Keeley B.

Great place.

Spacious & Spotless Penthouse for 2

| 5 out of 5 stars

We had no problems checking in or finding the room with directions that were given. The view from the balcony shows the mini golf course with gorgeous mountains behind. Sun sets on the right side from the penthouse balcony and it's quite beautiful, should you catch it. Everything was spotless, very homey and could see there was enough room for our teenage son if he would've come. Tv was easy to function, there were no funky tricks but there are 2 controllers. The bathroom was spacious but there's always a fan going and no way to shut it up or off. The bed was comfortable, but probably needs a small amount of padding. We didn't sleep seamlessly but it definitely kept us longer in the morning in it. Parking is clean and safe under the lodge but the elevator is slow, be warned. Our only complaint was the neighbor's very loud, late arrival and screaming small children next door on our last night. For God's sake, I wish the walls were thicker for moments like that. Understandably, 2 rooms were happy once they fell asleep and no further issues arose. Overall, we had a marvelous vacation at SCMR for the second time. Thanks for having us!

Perfect location

Review by Kristina U.

My husband and I stayed here for a few days of hiking, running, and sight-seeing. This space was perfect for us and was very clean and up to date. The hottubs were very relaxing at the end of a long day. We will definitely stay here again!

Awesome Stay at River Run

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Elizabeth F.

The condo was perfectly located for our short stay to hit the slopes one last time this season. Quiet, clean and comfortable and nicely furnished.

Great Place to stay

| 4 out of 5 stars
Review by Daniel L.

we really enjoyed the proximity of this location to ski school, the gondola, and the ski village. We did not take advantage of the pool but it looked like fun. The place was very comfortable, very spacious and well appointed. It had all of the necessities for our stay. The seat over by the roof light was a nice touch. You actually felt like you were in another room. However the beds were on the hard side. You would think a long day of skiing, you could sleep on anything but not so. My only recommendation is get a pillow top for the master bed.

Great Place to stay at keystone!

Review by Anthony A.

Newly renovated and well done. Two large beds with comfortable mattresses. Kitchen well supplied and bathroom is comfortable. Very close to gondola and river run village and pool and jaccuzi are nice. Check in/out a breeze. Heated parking is nice. Negatives. Elevator is pretty slow and you can feel forgotten about. Large jacuzzi not hot when we were there. Parking spots are small.

Our Keystone Vacay with the Boys

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Teri H.

We loved the condo. Overall, it was great. However, the bed was a little hard and the mattress cover in the foldout couch was very dirty. Otherwise, the condo was beautiful and well equipped. The location was also great!

Great space and location

| 3 out of 5 stars

The condo was a perfect fit for our family of four. Just as pictured and great location. We found it difficult to heat the bedroom and there weren’t any spare blankets, so unfortunately we had four very cold and sleepless nights. The kitchen wasn’t well-cleaned upon arrival - there were dirty spoons in the silverware drawer and the last guest’s leftover (opened, messy) food in the cabinet. Easy fixes if someone is listening!

Fast Trip with Son

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Christopher E.

Absolutely love this place and Keystone. My only grievance (which was strong) is the obnoxious disobedience regarding CO's pot laws (all for the tax revenue, don't drink or do drugs...yes potheads, we do exist) - the entire condo complex smelled like pot from sun up to sun down, as do lots of places, though as I understand it, smoking pot in public is NOT legal. I guess potheads are above the law. Is it cool to shoot my 9MM straight up in the sky (not legal) and just hope everyone accepts it? No, that's nonsense. So potheads, please take your pipes and go somewhere where non-smoking is not posted all over the place like Dakota Lodge has - so message to resort - enforce the law and your signs, or don't waste my frustration seeing them as it's obviously just for show..... That was literally the ONLY thing that gives me pause in returning - and I know a TON of people to spread my good or sorrowful words about vacations. It was a big bummer and the reason our next trip from the East Coast in the next 2 months will probably be to Utah. Though I'm not of their faith in that state they are militantly against drugs, so maybe now even our vacations will have political and ideological lines of demarcation as we're all getting more and more divided. Saddens me frankly, but heck, I'll take my former slalom racing skills to a place that obeys laws and aligns with my beliefs I guess a bit better.

Honeymoon Getaway

| 5 out of 5 stars

There is a bit of a scavenger hunt to get into/to the rental. We had fun with the instructions. Our rental was so cute and had a great view of the ice rink. It was clean and spacious. The king sized bed is extremely firm, so I only remmcend it if you like that. Overall, great stay.

Nice rental

| 4 out of 5 stars
Review by Hannah T.

Great rental plenty of room the only thing I would say is that the main bed was way to hard, but overall good condo

Nice little getaway!

| 4 out of 5 stars

Super cute and exactly as described. Very nicely kept, super clean and updated. Only issue is that we ended up sleeping on the Murphy bed because the main bed was hard as a rock! Would stay again though.

Cozy condo In the perfect Location!

| 5 out of 5 stars

This rental was perfect for my husband and me. The rooms are spacious and the kitchen has all of the essentials to whip up a quick meal. The location is absolutely perfect..... Close to everything! The unit feels very clean and secure. We had a delightful vacation.

The property managers are very attentive, and answered all of our questions. When we needed something, they were easy to contact, and responded quickly. Everyone who worked in the office was thoroughly professional.

Dakota Lodge Review

Review by Jamie L.

We stayed here with our 2yr old. The property was clean and had everything we needed. It was a short walk to the gondola and river run. We will definitely plan to stay here again in the future.

Spring break

| 4 out of 5 stars

The space was perfect for our needs and the condo was equipped with the basic necessities. The location was great. The management was very quick to help when our key stopped working and we were locked out of the condo. The cleanliness of the kitchen could have been better. I pulled a plate out of the cupboard and it had butter all over the back if it. It had been stacked on a plate with butter on it and placed back in the cupboard. Also found a dirty bowl. The stove also needs updating as none of the burners sit properly on the stovetop.

Convenient and Spacious

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Alexander G.

The rental was in a great location, 4-5 min walk from the River Run gondola, and worked great for our three adults. The size was surprisingly large for a one bedroom. We have stayed at other condos in River Run that feel much smaller. Every room is a good size - kitchen, living room, bedroom, and bathroom. My only complaint was that the Murphy bed was not very comfortable. Very convenient, but not very comfortable. Our keys had an issue where the garage/building side didn't work, only the room side, so someone had to let us in the garage when we first arrived. We called property management, who delivered new working keys to us within 30 minutes. Great experience overall.

Wow. What a great experience!

Review by Andrew C.

I was really impressed by the entire experience. The room was very well kept. Had everything we needed. The response to questions was lighting fast. And there were board games tucked into a drawer! It’s the little things... thanks for a great trip.

Satisfied with our stay

| 3 out of 5 stars
Review by Jennifer W.

The condo is in a great location. We love how River Run is set up with all the condos right there. This particular condo is nice enough. Spacious. The carpet needs to be replaced and it was really dusty. Our allergies flared up and you could see the dust. Being on the top floor gives you a great view, but with only one slow elevator going up and down is a challenge. The management company made the process very smooth. Check in was extremely easy. The price was good and the overall stay was good too.

Nice all around

Slope Getaway

Review by Jen K.

It was a beautiful stay at this resort! It is right at the bottom of the lift, and easy access to the slopes. Nice and cozy with the fireplace on. The property description was accurate, and very clean.
