clean, great location

Novi MI


Room was bigger than I expected. Only stayed one night but the place was clean and a walk to the gondola. Toughest part was navigating the underground parking to find the Dakota lodge elevator. Once you do that though it was easy.

early christmas

Kyle TX


Location was great. The mattress's need to be changed. The beds were very uncomfortable and we were ready to go home because of that. I think they should cooking spray and some of the cooking pots/pans and utensils could be better. If you rent this property, take your own coffee and filters because what they provide is not enough. We selected Keystone for the night skiing and that didn't start until after we left. The locals said they keep shortening the dates. That was disappointing.

5th floor - elevator broken!

Saint Paul MN


Terrible having to lug suitcases and four kids up and down the stairs for 5 of the 6 days of our trip. Disappointed that the management company didn't offer to move us to a different unit.

The space was fine. Main bedroom had cheap blankets. The cheapest Mr. Coffee maker I've ever seen.

I love this resort, and have stayed here for a few years-- but wouldn't stay in this unit again.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. The elevator is managed by the HOA and is outside of our control, however, it has been repaired at this time.

spring break late march 2023

Overland Park KS


The location of the facility was excellent. The pools and hot tubs were nice. The master shower head leaves a lot to be desired. The beds were extremely comfortable. Everything was pretty much as advertised. Unfortunately the elevator was extremely slow and being on the fifth floor was a challenge. One day it was completely out of service. The sauna was, not working the entire week as well.

Thank you for your honest review! We will be sure to follow up with the HOA about the elevator and sauna as they manage these!

winter ski trip - 2 adults, 4 kids

Pittsford NY


We came for 4 nights during February - March, to ski with our family. The property location was excellent. As described, it is a two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo with a small sitting area and a small kitchen. The bedrooms were designed to have the master with an in-suite bathroom, however they were swapped in the condo to allow a set of bunk beds in the "master bedroom" which we used as the kids room. The guest room had a king-size bed which barely fit in the room, leaving very little space for anything else. The kitchen table was pushed up against the sofa back due to lack of space, so only two people could eat at it - the other 4 ate at the counter. There were sofa seats for 4 people in the family room. The one elevator was very crowded on check-in day and often took more than 5 minutes to get an elevator. The pool and spa were excellent, though other guests were sometimes loud and often drinking in the spa (sometimes from prohibited glass containers). Overall we were delighted with the location and mostly pleased with the specific condo, though it was a tight fit for all 6 of us with minimal living space.

Thank you for your honest review and we are glad you enjoyed your time! In cases where there are prohibited actions (glass containers), we can always reach out the HOA for you!

great condo



We've stayed at several properties in Keystone and this was one of the best. The layout and high ceilings make if feel very roomy and it is nicely updated. Location is a bit further from the gondola, but very close to shops/restaurants. The slope/pool view is nice. SCMR was easy to deal with as usual.

beautiful condo

Shorewood IL


I recently stayed at this condo with my two children. I was very happy with everything about this condo. It was very clean and all furniture and bedding was updated and appeared to be new. The kitchen was very well stocked. We enjoyed playing games at night and sitting by the fireplace. I wished I had cooked more as River Run Village is an expensive place to eat. Next time I'll know better and take advantage of the kitchen, especially the crockpot that was provided. Location is good as well and a convenient walk to the gondola, shops, and restaurants. The indoor heated garage was also nice. The lock on the ski locker was broken so we weren't able to use it. I called maintenance and so did the rental company but it was not fixed the entire time we were there so we had to carry our skis upstairs to the unit. This is no fault of the rental company, but rather the HOA. I will definitely book here again when I come back to Keystone.

nice location and beautiful views

Palm Harbor FL


We loved the convenience of having ski slopes and all the shops and restaurants close by.

5th floor has beautiful views of the mountain and ski runs (which are visible at night as well).

The only delta is long wait times for the elevator during morning and evening times.

fun family stay

Crested butte CO


We had a great stay at Dakota 8539.
Overall the condo was convenient to skiing, nicely decorated, clean, great pool area.
The parking was strange as our truck did not fit in the ramp and there were no free options other than a parking lot one mile away. Perhaps a few exceptions for overnight parking in the river run lot could be arranged.
Loved the games provided, well furnished kitchen, comfy couches, nice dining table.
Beds were way too soft! We sunk in and could not escape. But a really nice stay!

We thank you for having taken the time to give us an evaluation of your stay. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the condo and its amenities and we are happy that you had a good experience overall, but we are sorry to see that you are upset about the parking limitations. Keystone manages all River Run parking lots and the height of the garage was provided in the digital guide book that was sent prior to arrival. We always encourage guests to reach out prior to arrival if they have a non-standard vehicle size. Finding a mattress that satisfies the mass amount of renters we see is just not possible, but we do like to see every guest comfortable during their stay. If someone does not like the mattress we can offer a replacement air-mattress or mattress topper if we are made aware of the issue. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Thank you for your feedback!

great place for family of 4

Brighton MO


Easy check in process and follows exactly the information on the emails and app. No needs our entire stay of 5 days/4 nights. Elevator available so easy to access 5th floor. parking in garage a plus. nice to have top floor place as to avoid hearing all the running/walking/noise of people staying on other floors

perfect location on a great mountain

Kirkland WA


We really enjoyed our stay in the Dakota Lodge. Property is well maintained and had plenty of space for our group of three. I could have easily had a couple more and it had been no problem. The kitchen was all furnished so that I never do a stop by the grocery store a couple times.

The hot tub was back open again and we did put it to use. One thing to note is that the elevators are slow, especially during peak times. We just used the stairs which was a good workout.

Overall, we would certainly be back again.

Response from Summit County Mountain Retreats

We are so glad that the unit proved to have more than enough room for your group and that the kitchen was stocked up too. When the lifts close in the afternoon it certainly does get busy around the Village and when trying to use the elevators. But also happy to hear the resort and all its amenities were accessible during your stay.

This location is perfect and the size of the unit suited our family of four with with grown children well. Our headboard had a layer of dust and noticed some burnt out lightbulbs and we did have to ask for a new toaster. That being said, check in was easy and communication with management was quick and responsive. Definitely more good than bad. With just a couple tweaks this place would be five stars all the way!!

Thanks for your comments. I’m happy to hear that you’ve enjoyed your stay with us. It is our goal to help our guests enjoy their stay. Once the broken toaster was reported to us our staff was able to get one delivered to the unit the same day. It’s our pleasure to provide the best possible service to our guests, and we’re glad that this commitment was reflected in your visit. We look forward to the next time we’re able to serve you again. Have a wonderful day!

incredibly comfortable, accomodating, and luxurious!


This condo made us feel so at home, yet had the feel of being in a luxury suite. Unbeatable views of the ski runs, view of the pool and the morning sunshine on the deck. Our family enjoyed the space and we were able to spread out and not feel we were on top of one another!

Lenexa KS


I would like to not recommend this place so it will be easier for me to book again, but I would be lying as it was AWESOME. Great location, view, on site parking, and accommodations. They only bad thing was the limited occupancy for the pool and hot tub, but that is due to Covid and not the property. It would be nice if the hours of availability were open a couple more hours in the evening for this reason.

nice condo in a great location.

Oklahoma City OK


This was a really nice place to stay with views of the mountain and the pool/hot tub area. The king bed is actually in a bedroom without its own bath, but it was not a problem for us at all because it was just our family and the common bath is right next to the bedroom. The "master suite" with connected bath has a queen and a full/twin bunk. Everything was clean and stocked with everything you need for a stay in the mountains. It is a short walk to the middle of River Run, and two stops on the free bus to Mountain House (for the kids ski school). Plenty of restaurants, shops, grocery, and a Starbucks within a block. Parked in the complimentary underground parking garage and rode the elevator up to the 5th floor. They also had plenty of luggage carts to make the move easier! We would definitely stay here again.
