"Great Family Vacation!"
Left on 06/19/2015 for a stay in June 2015
We had a fantastic time at the Frostfire condo in Keystone! There were 6 adults and one 3 yr old staying the week and we had more than enough room, never feeling at all cramped! The first floor location was perfect! Easy to just to step outside and enjoy the sound of the Snake River rushing by, and the boys could do a little fishing close by while the little one played ball and romped in the yard. There are several good restaurants within walking distance but we enjoyed grilling at “home”! Keystone is known for its skiing, but we were there in early June and loved the weather—60’s felt more like 70’s and the hot tub is only a few steps away! Don’t worry about rain in the forecast, it doesn’t last long and is usually light! Enjoy!

Debbie was a fabulous person to work with. I had a last minute opportunity to get out to Keystone and she worked with me to make it happen.The murphy bed was perfect. I highly recommend the ski decor condo; right at the River Run village. It is a perfect location, offers everything from hot tubs to any sport opportunity available. A great host and a great place to stay!!!
"Hidden River Lodge"
Left on 03/06/2016 for a stay in February 2016
I enjoy staying at Hidden River Lodge as it is within walking distance to the lifts at Mountain House and I have stayed there several times. A few years ago I stayed at 5983, a three bedroom unit and loved it, especially the large steam shower. However this year I was very disappointed. I'm not sure if the unit now has new owners but it does not appear to be kept up as well. My disappointment began when we opened the front door and the hinges literally pulled out of the wall. Really, no one noticed this before? Although the steam shower was still advertised in the listing, it did not work and calls to the Sky Run management office resulted in, "Oh, yes, we've had problems with that." The toilet in the master bath wasn't even bolted to the floor and for a condo that slept 10, there were only 3 regular size glasses in the kitchen and 6 bowls. I guess the members of the cleaning service are short because the top of the refrigerator was filthy.
Yes, it's a great location but overall I was very disappointed. If you can, rent the one below. It may not have cathedral ceilings but it is better maintained.
"Beautiful condo in the mountains"
Left on 07/14/2015 for a stay in June 2015
We loved staying at the Levine's condo. The condo is decorated like a mountain cabin should be and all of the furniture and beds were very comfortable. We love the backyard view of the mountains/ski slopes! Although you can't see the Snake River from the back deck because of the summer foliage, you can hear it rushing by and can get to it quickly via a short path and bridge. My kids loved playing around the river. There is plenty of easy hiking in the area that is very entertaining. In the summer, we did not find much open normal hours in the Keystone area but we quickly found restaurants and grocery stores within 10 miles of the condo. We took a great rafting trip out of Buena Vista (hour away) and hiked the Continental Divide (6 miles away). My children had never seen snow and were able to play in it on the Continental Divide hike. We also toured a college near Denver for my high school senior son. This Keystone condo was a good location in the middle of all of our activities. The owners were very responsive to a condo issue and worked to resolve it. They also mailed back an important sentimental item back to us when we realized we had left it behind. Thanks for renting us the condo!

This is our second year staying at this property. The ski-in/ski-out is super convenient. The ski lockers make it essy to manage the equipment and get to the slopes. The condo is spacious iand well maintained. Sky-run, the managment company, was easy to book with and check-in was simple as well.
