Was a great stay, the kids loved it and everything was ready to go. The TVs are a bit small but who's there to watch TV?

When we walked in the condo was much bigger than we expected. Location is great, walkable to everything in River Run. The kitchen is plenty clean and adequate, furniture is good. Felt like the carpet and bathrooms are starting to age. Overall not quite a 5 star, but not priced like one either and is nice enough.

Very well thought out floorplan, great location

Very well-written check-in directions, super central to Keystone, near nice trails and great pools/hot tubs within the resort. Well equipped for families and very cozy. Loved every second.

Beautiful, clean and spacious, this rental property exceeded expectations and did not disappoint. Excellent check in / check out instructions made the process effortless.

This unit is very spacious, very clean and is located right by the Keystone Village walking distance to the Keystone gondola and restaurants.

It was noisy with the highway traffic and the people on the street below. The second bedroom was very small.

Checking in was a bit cumbersome since the actual room key was located 1 mile from the room , would be best to have this activity at the actual room location

The condo is a great size for a family and very well maintained. We had great views and a comfortable setting throughout.

This unit was great! Large, great location, great price. The Master Bedroom was a lot bigger than we expected, 2nd bedroom was a little smaller than expected. The heated garage was a great touch, and the unit is within easy walking distance of anywhere you want to go in River Run. If you have a family's worth of gear, just grab one of the wagons in the village before you walk down. The pool and hot tub were great, even on a day with -7 windchill. Proximity to the ice rink was another big plus.

This was our 4th time staying with SMCR and they're always great- I e-mailed some questions and they were always quick to provide a thorough response. I highly recommend this unit if you have some kids that like to have room to run around.

This unit was perfect for us - 2 adults and 2 kids (ages 9 and 11). The unit was large, clean, and well equipped. While there were some signs of wear and tear, everything was in good working order and the unit was nicely decorated. Also, the unit is well thought out. The large locker area by the front door was brilliant. A great way to keep all the ski gear organized and out of the way. The master bedroom was large and had plenty of closet and drawer space. The kids' room was a bit on the small side, but it was not an issue (they are never in there except to sleep anyway!). It had twin beds, and plenty of closet and drawer space. The location of the building was excellent. Probably a 5 minute walk to the gondola, and literally just steps to shops and restaurants. The underground parking was very nice to have. If there had been in-unit laundry, it would have been perfect. We will definitely be back!!

We had a great stay and vacation in your home! Everything we needed and more, especially made it so comfortable and convenient. Easy access to unit. Lots of room and space to relax. We would definitely recommend your home to everyone.
TERESA F. August 13, 2018
We had a wonderful stay at this condo. It was very clean and in great shape. Twin beds and pull-out sofa worked great for our family of 5. The pool was just downstairs and very nice. We were close to the shops at River Run. We had one issue with a window not shutting and it was taken care of quickly. Very nice condo!
Karen J. March 24, 2017
Very nice condo with plenty of room. It was well stocked with towels, kitchen utensils, etc. Close to shops and restaurants as well as the slopes.
Shanda D. October 19, 2016
We were very surprised how much larger it was than the pictures show. Love the location, unfortunately we forgot the town I'd closed up until first of November but we just drove to othe restaurants close by. Everyone in the office were very helpful and returned emails quickly.

Outstanding, great time! Wonderful condo, couldn't ask for more! The condo was very nice, well maintained and extremely clean.

We had a lovely stay at this property in Dakota Lodge. Convenient t everything we wanted. River Run village is terrific. The weather was cool and comfortable and we did several day hikes with our small children. This was great for our family of four.
Sarah R. September 13, 2017
The condo was very spacious and was a great place to stay for our friend's wedding in Keystone. The staff was friendly and the check in process was easy. Only feedback is that a 10am checkout is a bit too early. I would recommend 11am at least in the off-season. Other than that, I would definitely stay here. The location is perfect - it's right in the village. the pool and hot tub were very nice. I would definitely consider staying here for sk8i season as well...very easy to access the Gondola. Thank you for a great stay.
Priscilla C. May 29, 2017
I loved our stay here.. great fast responses to any concerns. Wonderful clean lodge. No complaints. Strongly recommend.
Roger M. August 23, 2018
Nice property and generally satisfied with our stay. We did have an issue with the heat. Adjusting the thermostat had no effect. We finally found an unmarked valve on one of the baseboard units that got the heat to working. Shouldn't have taken detective work on our part to figure this out. Also there was an unpleasant odor in the master bathroom.
Alishia S. January 24, 2017
We had such a great time. The location was amazing. We sat in the hot tub every night and also got to watch the fireworks right from the hot tub. Amazing condo, by far the largest we have stayed in so far.
Penny K. October 4, 2017
We had a wonderful weekend! Accommodations were as described and very comfortable. We would definitely stay here again!
Megan P. November 13, 2017
This was a wonderful place to stay. It was clean and presented just as in the pictures. It had everything we needed. It was close enough to the slopes to walk and shopping and dining was right there too! It was a great place to stay and I would stay there again!

Locarion was perfect!!! Management very helpful. It was very clean and had everything we needed. The only thing I wish it had was a washer and dryer.

The unit and property far exceeded my expectations.

The new ski lockers can be problematic. Since they are left open and unlocked until you put your stuff in and select a code, there were several people who came in to find the locker assigned to their unit had been locked, possibly mischievously. Several people had also taken up multiple lockers which displaced renters of other units. Staff were still trying to figure out how to combat these issues and were all over the place dealing with them at multiple buildings.

The “check in instructions” weren’t arranged very well though. There is a drop box from which you retrieve your packet, which includes keys. The instructions for accessing the dropbox were included as steps in the “Driving Directions” section. Since I had the physical address and a smartphone (just like everyone else) I skipped the driving instructions as I expected them to be ONLY the driving instructions. I ended up at the office where the staff were laughing at the many people who showed up at the office to check in just like I did. This is easily resolved by reorganizing the check in instructions to split the Dropbox information away from the driving directions. It isn’t a logical place to put it.

Good size living spaces and kitchen is well stocked. Check in was easy and apartment clean and ready for us. Bedroom 2 does have 2 twin beds but not much space for anything else. Also master bedroom bathroom is small. Management company very responsive when we had an issue with the ski locker (see other comments about locker being locked before you can set up a code) and when the lift stopped working during our stay. Swimming pool and hot tub was fun to use in the cold and Sauna is a nice added touch. Location is good and not near the noisy areas but close enough to make it a short walk to the river run gondola. Love Keystone as a ski resort (3rd time here) and this is a good place to stay with your family.
Valerie W. May 9, 2018
Our family enjoyed staying here! It was the perfect size for three people, not to big and not to small. The unit was clean and well taken care of. We did have a problem with the heat in the unit. We could never get it to shut off even after turning the thermostat all the way down! It was a warm weekend, so coming back to a warm unit was a bit much. We rectified that by opening the windows, which some had a hard time closing after we opened them nothing a little WD-40 won't fix. Overall, we were really pleased and if we come back next year, we will definitely stay here.

Condo was fine just needed better beds and lighting. Could hardly read anything due to lack of lighting. The beds and linen were not very comfortable.
Anonymous June 1, 2014
My family and I loved this place. The condo was spacious and nicely furnished just as the photos indicated. There was room for six if the fold out couch was used. The couch was great for children, but maybe not the greatest for adults. The Summit staff were pleasant and helpful, making check in effortless. The views were astounding, the hot tubs wonderful, and the memories priceless. Thanks for making our stay wonderful!

We've rented #8498 a few times now for our family of 5 and there is just enough extra space for all of us to fit and not feel squished in or on top of each other.
Andrea M. December 20, 2014
This was our first time renting a place like this and we would do it again in a heartbeat. Location and room was amazing, only complaint is some of the dishes were dirty.

We rent in Keystone and Breck. several times a year and this was a great unit. Great location and super clean unit.
Russell F. December 9, 2014
Love these condo's on the west side of River Run, they are fresh, yet not so exquisite that you feel awkward in the condo. Being in the Dakota was a great change of pace, especially with the pool just a few floors away. Overall, we love the Dakota and Buffalo Lodges, some how they are better than Silver Mill.
Jeff J. December 16, 2014
First off let me state that this is the first time we've ever stayed in a VRBO property, and this was a nice unit right in the heart of the River Run resort at Keystone. The king bed in the master was comfortable. The unit is just steps from the gondola and various shops in the River Run area.

In the winter, evening comes very quickly an early in Keystone, and while this unit does feature a number of windows, when the sun is down, the unit does get a little dark, specifically in the kitchen. If you plan to do a significant amount of cooking, just beware that the few lights dedicated to the kitchen can make prep work a little difficult, but manageable.

Other than that, this is a very nice unit and with (2) teenage boys, having (3) TVs made down time off the slopes enjoyable and reduced fighting over, "what we're going to watch."

Last, if you enjoy a nice cup of coffee, you definitely need to visit the Inxpot coffee shop. Excellent customer service and absolutely delicious coffee.

A very loud heater (pump?) put a big damper on our experience with this particular unit. From the moment we walked in the heater was making a loud noise. Despite multiple calls to the Summit County emergency line, it was never repaired during our stay. The unit itself was nice/clean and has a great location. We have rented through Summit every year for the past 8 years, and this was the only bad experience we've had with them.

Easy to arrange booking, also easy to find. Condo was clean and everything you need for a weeks stay was provided. Everything is within walking distance.

They were a pleasure to work with..very helpful and the condo was perfect!! Could use a few things like cookie sheets, etc in the kitchen but still a great place!!
Kathy Z. March 7, 2016
The condo had poor lighting, no ice maker or ice trays. The towels and sheets were very cheap. Liked the large living area but the bedroom with the twin beds was very small. Ski locker lock did not work correctly and the dowels that hold the skis were broken. Consequently the skis sat in water all night.
Anonymous March 4, 2016
After numerous stays at Keysinte, this condo is our new favorite! We loved the roominess of the condo, the entry way with long bench and hooks to hang ski/snow gear was wonderful. We have no complaints and would be happy to stay here again.
Ruby H. December 1, 2015
After Thanksgiving in Denver, my 3 sons, husband, and I drove up to Keystone to spend a relaxing time away from the city. It was really nice to arrive at the Dakota Lodge which was a perfect condo for us. It was plenty of room for all of us and the unit was in great condition, clean, warm, and cozy. The kitchen gave me the space I needed to prepare and cook meals. Our favorite thing about this unit was the surprise outside the dining room window, an ice skating rink! It helped give us more of a holiday feel!

was a good location and space for a family of four to get on the slopes

We came to escape the heat of Phoenix and this was just the place to do it! It was very cozy yet spacious! It was the best condo we have stayed in, that is close to the main street of River Run. The beds were comfy and the couch was very comfortable. So much so that my youngest decided to sleep there most nights! I was afraid at first of the west facing room, but it was not bad at all as far as the condo getting hot in afternoons. There was enough air flow, that we didn't notice any heat. The location was fantastic too! Close to the pool, hot tubs, and the shops of River Run without hearing the noise that all those can produce. When we arrived, we did notice the screen door to the master bedroom balcony was off the tracks, but that wasn't an important thing and we just put in a request to fix for after we left. Game night around the dining room table was terrific. Some nights we had up to 8 people playing Monopoly or Things. The only downside was the dining room lights were very dim and could not be adjusted brighter. However, we were able to make due by moving some of the lamps close to the table. We would recommend this condo to any family! We had a great time.
