Dakota Lodge #8536


This oversized 1 bedroom, 2-bathroom penthouse condo sleeps 6 with a king bed, a queen Murphy bed and queen sleeper sofa. It features a master suite on our Ivory White Bedding program and private laundry. The balcony overlooks Dercum Square. Centrally located in River Run Village so you’re just steps away from shopping, restaurants and festivities. Plus, you're a short walk from the high-speed gondola. Dakota Lodge offers shared amenities including the largest pool in Keystone with slope views and two oversized hot tubs. And it's next to Dercum Square that features an ice rink during winter and a mini 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 a flat screen TV above a beautiful gas fireplace and vaulted ceilings. There's a queen-sized sleeper sofa and a Murphy bed for additional sleeping arrangements. Extra linens are in a closet. The private balcony is just off 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 the dining area comfortably seats six with two additional seats at the breakfast bar. The first of two full bathrooms is just off of the living area. It has a single sink vanity and a shower/tub combination. All bathrooms are stocked with towels and an initial supply of toiletries.

The master suite features a king-sized bed on our Ivory White Bedding program, a flat screen TV and its own access to the private balcony. The en suite bathroom has double sinks and a door separates the shower/tub combination and toilet area for added privacy. There’s a private combination washer and dryer in the master bathroom, and laundry detergent is provided for your convenience.

Excellent Choice

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Gary S. on October 12th, 2017

We were very happy with our choice of this property. Obviously professionally managed and with aplomb as one would expect with a Keystone property. Very clean and well-equipped. Parking garage is a little tight so don't bring the huge SUV - we had a Nissan Rogue which was perfect.

Great little getaway

Review by William B. on November 30th, 2017

Wonderful flat - everything worked, super clean and easy access to everything in the area.

Great place. Would definitely stay there again.

| 5 out of 5 stars

Pros:1. Washer and dryer in unit.2. 5th floor has view of skating rink and parking lot (can tell how busy the resort is).3. Very spacious unit.4. Heating of water and air is fast so unit is comfortable (in fact, the unit would get stuffy from too much heat sometimes)5. Everything is available to cook meals at home.6. Bus stop is less than a block from door.7. Parking garage.Cons:1. Only one elevator. The elevator was just fixed when we arrived. Imagine if elevator was broken during our stay...would have to climb 5 flights everytime!2. Murphy bed was not leveled so I had to sleep with 2 pillows.

Review by James J. on June 29th, 2018

Room was perfect for our stay. We were there for our daughter’s wedding in A-Basin. Location was perfect. Everything was in order, except a dirty pan that was put back in cabinet. I would not have expected housekeeping to see. Especially appreciated the humidifier in the closet. We used, and needed, the entire time. Bed was comfortable. And had all the essentials.

Awesome unit

| 5 out of 5 stars
Review by Liz S. on August 16th, 2018

The unit was perfect. It was right across the hall from the elevator but since the unit was on the 5th floor there really wasn’t any noise from the elevator. The unit was a nice size and loved having the extra bathroom. Loved having access to the washer/dryer. FYI: the washer/dryer is one unit and does take quite a while to wash a load of clothes, but well worth having it in the unit than having to go to the laundromat. There was one weird architecture design flaw. The toilet in the master bath was facing the washer/dryer and had very little knee room. Kinda of a weird layout considering all the designer had to do was turn the toilet to face the tub. Was still workable especially since there was another bathroom in the unit. We loved the unit and will definitely be back!

Comfortable spot!

Review by John B. on January 12th, 2019

Nice condo with large balcony overlooking ice rink. Very convenient Village location with parking garage. All arrangements with management company were efficient. Kitchen was well equiped. Nicely furnished though LR sofa and chairs are due for replacement - that’s really the only negative. Great visit!

Great location and great place!!!

Review by Stacy W. on January 29th, 2019

This unit is ideally located in River Run and was very comfortable and spacious for my family! Although the volume on one of the TVs didn't work, everything else was fantastic!!! THey said they were getting a new TV in on Monday so I'm sure others would not have this minor inconvenience. Thank you!

Nice condo close to gondola

Review by Mark E. on February 10th, 2019

Great location, comfortable bed, nice size for a one bedroom. Did not use combination washer dryer system so not sure how that works. Only problem we had was family room TV sound did not work unless you go through input sequence that needs to be written down for guests. We highly recommend this unit but the elevator in all off these buildings are extremely slow so relax.

Excellent Experience

Review by Alex T. on March 4th, 2019

The rental property was fantastic. We had plenty of space and all the amenities were up to and exceeded expectations. We arrived early and checked in and from the beginning the condo was clean, well designed, and had everything we needed.

Great stay

Review by Sam L. on April 16th, 2019

The Dakota Lodge was perfect - great location on the top floor, had all the amenities we needed and a washer/dryer in the room - note that it is a washer/dryer all in one and takes longer to dry than expected!

Great location, great rental. Just check if the resort is open!

| 4 out of 5 stars

Great location and our rental was very clean. All the amenities were there and the guest portal was very helpful for things as simple as using the TV remote. Our one parking space was easily accessible because only three other cars were in the garage. During the high season, I imagine finding your spot would be challenging in the small space. Check that the resort is still open during your stay. We picked a bad week after Keystone closed for the season. Restaurants were renovating and all but two places in the River Run Village were closed. We still managed to have a great time, but you had to drive back and forth from Dillon and/or A-basin...only a few miles either way. Outdoor hottub s and heated pool were operational and great. Will definitely be back...would even do post-ski season again. It was nice and uncrowded!

Quick memorial weekend getaway

Great Family Vacation

My 3 daughters and I had a wonderful experience staying at Dakota Lodge. My daughter's particularly loved the heated pool and hot tub. The condo was clean, comfortable and quiet.

Comfortable and clean

Review by Justin W. on June 26th, 2019

No issues. The place was clean and comfortable. We didn't spend much time in the building or around the grounds, but it served as a nice sleeping and breakfast room while we needed it.

A great experience!

| 5 out of 5 stars

We had never been to the Keystone area and had no idea what to expect from the area or the Vrbo. Both we excellent. The pictures we looked at for this condo looked inviting, but the condo exceeded our expectations. Instructions on how to access the condo were very easy to understand and follow. The weather wasn't the greatest during our stay, so hanging out in the condo was completely relaxing and enjoyable. Living area furniture appears to be recently updated and was very comfortable. We would go back to the very same condo given the opportunity to return to Keystone. Loved the area! Loved this condo!

Nice Condo, a little dated

| 3 out of 5 stars
Review by Amy I. on August 6th, 2019

The unit had plenty of space. Nice balcony and great location. The elevator for the building is terrible it doesn’t work like most elevators it stops on every floor going up and going down, it is VERY slow door struggles to close! If we weren’t on the 5th floor we would have used the stairs. Beware there aren’t stairs to parking garage. The unit could use updating, blinds hardly work, carpet old and stained...warn out. Nice bedding and comfortable bed. Good price and got the job done.

Manager Response:
We apologize the elevator wasn't functioning properly during this guests stay. The managers of the Dakota Lodge building were notified of the issue and it's since been resolved. We will surely pass this guests suggestions along to the property owner. We thank you for your feedback!

Review by Chi T. on December 8th, 2019

My overall experience with this lodge was great. Very nice and clean. Right in the keystone resort area making it easy to get to the slope.

Review by PAUL R. on December 25th, 2019

Great rental for our family of 5. Very nice furniture and beds. Nice view of skating rink and easy walk to lifts. Unit could use a little more kitchen supplies, like pots and pans and a good can opener.We would rent again for sure.

Perfect for families

| 5 out of 5 stars

The unit was exactly as we expected. A bit of noise from the ice skating rink outside, but we used a sound machine for the kiddos so they sleep right through.We would definitely stay in this rental again.

Great holiday vacation!

Review by Anne B. on January 3rd, 2020

Clean condo. Plenty of dishes and cooking utensils. There is a keurig and a regular coffee pot. They do not provide much coffee so make sure to buy or bring some! Beds were comfy and location was close to gondola. Staff were great to work with as well! Would definitely stay again!

Always great

Review by Courtney K. on February 14th, 2020

I always use summit county, they are very easy to use, quick to respond, and the locations are always top notch. Great parking with heated garage, walking distance from the gondola usually, and amenities are phenomenal. Highly recommend.
