really convenient and good facilities

Aurora CO


We enjoyed our stay. The only thing I would ask is that they get a new bed. It was very lumpy and definitely has seen better days. Other than that, great location, great parking, nice hot tub and good kitchen supplies. It’s literally a 5 minute walk to the lifts.

Atlantic Beach FL


The communication from the start was fantastic. Very easy instructions and texted throughout the stay to be sure that all was going well. The place was clean and had everything needed for the stay. I loved the property except for one thing. The hot tub had so much chlorine it that it burnt your eyes and was almost unbearable to sit in. Taking that out of the equation, I would 100% book this again. Great location and parking. Loved it.

I absolutely loved the location. The hot tubs were nice and clean. The lodge was clean. There were certain things that needed to be fixed up. For example, the porcelain on the faucet was broken, which isn’t a big deal but it did take away the aesthetic of the place.

FLeming CO


Great location, convenient for shops, restaurants, lifts and many amenities.
But someone else had access to out locker which was worrying form a security point of view. Our ski equipment could have been stolen so we had to keep it in our room. Property services and maintenance are prompt and professional. It's a great place to stay and SCMR staff are usually good at sorting out any issues / problems.

We have used SCMR 3 times now and have been very pleased. No issues at all. This condo is in the perfect location as well. Covered heated parking is a bonus.

Had some issues with maintenance on the refrigerator & TV. We ended up having to fix them ourselves. The couch & dining room chairs are extremely outdated; carpet in the bedroom is a tripping hazard.

Response from Summit County Mountain Retreats

We thank you for having taken the time to give us an evaluation of your stay. Had we known about the maintenance issues, we would have gladly taken care of this right away. We have not had any other issues with the refrigerator or TV after your stay. We ca send our maintenance team to take a look at the carper in the bedroom to see if it needs to be tacked down. We would love it if you would come back to stay with us again – we have no doubt that the next time you would have the wonderful experience that the vast majority of our guests have.

weekend stay

Colorado Springs CO


We have rented through Summit County Mountain Rentals before we no complaints. This time was a bit different. Upon arrival, we leaned the elevator from the garage was out of order. This should have been brought to guest’s attention ahead of time. My husband recently had ACL surgery and hiking flights of stairs with luggage was a hassle and just unnecessary.

The condo itself was nice, for the most part. The bathroom needs attention. The shower rod is absolute cracked in half and paint and pieces of dry wall were missing in numerous spots.

Staff at check in were wonderful and very accommodating. The location is great. If looking for a 5 star, this is not it. But if cleanliness, convenience, and normal amenities are what you are comfortable with, this is it. The location and price trumps not having all the fancy stuff. I would stay again. Very happy with the whole resort, village, etc

This was our first visit to Keystone. Friends recommended Summit County Mountain retreats after their stay. I was able to rent direct through them for less than VRBO advertised. Their communication throughout the process was top notch. Our condo was beautifully appointed. We thought we had an issue with the fireplace (we didn’t), but their maintenance staff was pleasant, responsive and helpful over the phone. Great discounts at the ski rental shop. We loved access to all the amenities at our building and throughout the area. All in all, it an amazing experience. I would highly recommend it to anyone!

cozy condo



Overall it is wonderful, although the pickup of the door key was slightly confusing (you do not pick up the key in the same building as the condo, so we ended up taking a shuttle to get the key). This great little condo is within walking distance to the gondola, and has access to soothing outdoor hot tubs. You can walk downstairs to the little Keystone ski village area, where there are fun food, equipment rental and shopping options. Nice kitchen and bathroom, working gas fireplace and small balcony. We loved it, and hope to return again to this unit.

Location was great and the condo was very clean and well equipped. We had 3 adults in the room and it was a bit crowded. As with most sofa beds, it wasn't very comfortable but it did it's job. Hot tub was excellent after a full day on the slopes and the pool tables were a nice touch. Overall I would highly recommend as a 3 adult rental or a 2 adult/2 children rental.

Spend 2 days at this condo in Buffalo Ridge at Keystone. For the price, this condo is very worth it. It is in the center of action with shops and food below and the lifts only a few minutes walk away. The condo itself was nice, but could use updating. The fold-away couch bed's mattress need to be replaced badly.

Coming from Southwest New Mexico, the Buffalo Lodge is perfect for summer getaway.
