Fresh paint and new flooring throughout, along with some new furniture and decor in June, 2020. It features premium linens and our Ivory White Bedding program. Top floor location ensures a quiet stay. Centrally located in River Run Village so you’re just steps away from shopping, restaurants and festivities.

The first of two full bathrooms is just off of the living area and features a single sink vanity with a granite countertop and a shower/tub combination. All bathrooms are stocked with towels and an initial supply of toiletries.

keystone rental

Monument CO


The location was great. Unit was ok. The closets were stuffed with fan, blankets & other items which did not allow for room to hang clothes, there was no dressers to put clothes away, the unit did not have a broom or vacuum cleaners to clean up a bit. We were on 5th floor of building & elevators were so slow - on average it took us 15 minutes to get to 1st floor to leave building. And, there was only one elevator for building which was ridiculous considering number of units in building. Units did not have their own washer & dryers so that was not helpful. There were fans on top of building that were so loud it was difficult to sleep.

cozy spot with great views

Austin TX


The set up was perfect for our family of four. The kids had their own bed and bathroom across the living space from the grownups. The beds and furniture were comfortable and the fireplace and view cozy. The elevators took forever and the gondola still felt like a hike for the kids carrying all their own gear. Hot tub was nice. Nearby restaurant Zuma was excellent. The hosts were responsive, but not particularly helpful. We never got working ski locker keys or a noisy heater fixed. Overall though, a great place for a family vacation.

Thanks so much for sharing your experience with us. We hope to see you again soon. The ski locker keys are managed by the HOA and not our company directly. We did reach out them multiple times during your stay and we apologize it was not resolved. However, the ski locker has been fixed and theunit does have working ski locker keys.

Hauppauge NY


Overall good experience, however not as good as a prior stay at the adjacent lodge. The accommodations were nice and clean, but smaller than expected. Rooms were very crowded with furniture, especially the bedrooms. Though advertised to sleep more than 4, we found it a bit small for 4 people to enjoy comfortably. We did not have access to ski storage as the provided keys did not work. Management company reached out to HOA but the issue was not resolved. The hallway ventilation system was blowing cold air the entire duration of our stay making it very cold. Upon arriving at the hot tub one evening, there were no towels for our use though we were told not to bring towels from the room.

The location was great, good restaurants were close and walkable to the gondola.

We will return to the location but will not rent this unit again.

Thank you for your review and honest feedback! We do apologize about the ski locker key and no towels at the hot tub, we will be sure to continually follow up with the HOA on these matters so future guests do not have to experience this!

amazing fall stay in the mountains

Denver CO


I had some time in between switching homes, and figured why not stay in the mountains while the leaves are changing. Couldn't have asked for more! Great view, great apartment, and the management company is very organized and clear with everything. Will definitely do this again in the future.

Everything went very well until I saw I couldnt park 2 cars in the garage in off season. There were several spots open and I had to go out and move my car to a ski lot.

Thank you for your review, parking is managed by the HOA and for this property, there is only one car per unit allowed anytime of the year.

beautiful view and great condo.



Customer service was easy, and we wished we would have stayed longer. The views were beautiful and the place was quiet at night.

great place

Lakeville MN


The individual condo was great, clean, everything you need. BUT, before you book, make sure the elevator is working as it is on the 5th floor. There is a coin washer dryer in the building, but the dryer takes double the amount to dry a small load, so don't count on doing a lot of laundry.

Response from Summit County Mountain Retreats

Thank you for your review! It is unfortunate that the elevator was down during this stay, this is something that is managed by the HOA not us, but we are working with them to get constant updates!

beautiful condo

The unit at Dakota Lodge had higher end finishes. Nice furnishings, and plenty of room to spread out. The view is gorgeous. The hot tub and pool are on site. Love the covered parking, and luggage carts. Close to eating and coffee shops. Would stay here again.

beware !

Golden CO


From the moment we entered this condo it was freezing. The fireplace won't light up and heating baseboards were not warming up enough. I've made two calls to maintenance and been told that the order for a technician has been placed. The technician shows up at 8 PM next evening. He hasn't been able to fix the fireplace and brought extra portable heaters. We have been able to warm up living room but temperature in both bedrooms still has been around 60 degrees. We are told that the building has an old electric heating system that is not handling load sufficiently. It is a great location and penthouse has a nice view but we will never book this condo again.

The apartment was clean and had a good amount of linens and towels. The clock on the wall needs its battery changed and the propane tank on the porch was empty. The Wi-Fi password was incorrect. Otherwise the facilities were excellent and I would be happy to stay here again in the future

Submitted on Mar 29, 2022

Response from Summit County Mountain Retreats

Thank you for your kind words. We’re grateful for your feedback about the clock in the living area and propane tank. We can certainly take care of both of those items. We confirmed the WIFI password with Resort Internet, as Dakota Lodge has building-wide internet, not unit specific WIFI. It sounds like there was a connectivity issue that day of your stay and we do apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. We look forward to the next time we’re able to serve you again. Have a wonderful day!

lovely unit, great customer service

Noblesville IN


This is a lovely property and the rental company was nice to work with. We have rented a few times in Keystone area and so far this has been our best experience (not that any others have been bad). The location is great. The unit is clean and has everything we needed. Like a lot of rentals with pics - the pics do make this look larger than it is. But that is not unique to unit. The room with a single king is small. It is perfectly doable for a couple, but no dressers and the space to all sides of the king is only a foot or two. That bathroom is quite spacious. The room with multiple beds is larger but bathroom is smaller, which makes sense.
Kitchen is very well equipped. Appliances work well. The grill on the patio is very nice as well.

Some mild complaints about the complex just as an FYI:
the parking garage is nice to have in winter weather - but know it is super dark 24/7. There are some lights always on and some that kick on when you move, but at best it is dark and worst it is very dark. This might bother some people
The heated pool is meh . . . we went in Oct which we know is dead off season, but pool was dirty and it was not above 60 degrees.
the internet is trash. I mean it is probably common for so many rentals but it is like 12mb when it works, which is not always.

we had a few questions for Summit county and they were answered super fast. Also, the check in process is easy and the check out process is super easy. That makes a difference!

Thanks very much for your balanced and fair review of Summit County Mountain Retreats. I'm glad you felt cleanliness was well done. It's something we've worked hard on and we're pleased our efforts resonated with you. Please keep in mind that the common areas are managed by the individual home owners association but we will surly communicate your feedback regarding the low lighting in the garage, pool cleanliness, temperature and internet. Most guests do not have troubles with the internet in the unit. However, if any guests experience any trouble with this please let us know right away so that our team can take a look. Thanks again for your feedback. I’m sure that the entire staff enjoyed attending to your needs as much as you enjoyed your stay. Take care !

girl’s trip

Grant MN


We booked the condo for a girl’s trip in CO. The condo was as described and the three of us had plenty of space to spread out at the end of a day of hiking and sightseeing. We did not cook while we were there, but the kitchen was well stocked. The beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of towels for all of us, which was good since there is no laundry in the unit. The condo is located in Keystone, which is a quick and convenient drive to Breckinridge. We would definitely stay here again.

october stay

Amarillo TX


We loved our stay in the beautiful Keystone area! Would love to return to River Run village when it is not an off season as most restaurants and shops were closed. However we enjoyed the peace and quiet- and it was a short drive to shopping/dining in silverthorne, breck, and frisco! This condo offered gorgeous views and cozy furnishings. It was a bit crammed with a toddler but we were able to adjust some furniture for our sons packnplay. Mgmt was helpful with any issues throughout our stay however WiFi was unreliable despite their attempt. Would definitely stay here again!
