FACILITY QUALITY & AMENITIES ****(4 Stars) Dakota Lodge is one of the newest and most exclusive buildings in the resort. This means there is less congestion in the building during busy times and all units are a short walk from the elevator. There is a high speed elevator that services only 67 units. Some other buildings have one elevator for over 100 units. There is an access controlled underground heated garage. Laundry facilities are located on both the second and fourth floor. This building also features the largest heated pool in the resort and the two largest hot tubs in the resort. The pool and hot tubs have views of Dercum Mountain and the ski slopes. There is also a sauna on the first floor. The sister building to Dakota Lodge is next door and guests in Dakota have access to the game room and gathering areas in Buffalo Lodge. The game room features several pool tables and tables to play games such as chess and checkers and a 75 inch LCD TV to watch the big game. The gathering areas are beautifully decorated and have ample seating on couches and living room style chairs for large groups.
PROXIMITY TO ACTIVITIES ***** (5 Stars) This condo is approximately 100 feet from the River Run village which features many fun activities including restaurants, shopping, bars, winter and summer sports rentals, and great people watching. It is also just steps away from the new high speed, eight passenger gondola. In your ski boots and carrying your skis, it will take about three minutes to get to the gondola.
DISCOUNTS YOU WILL USE!
All of our discounts are listed on our website at SCMOUNTAINRETREATS.COM. All discounts and services are provided by local independent businesses. No huge corporate markups!
1. 25% discount on all ski rentals and 1 FREE kids ski rental with an adult rental!

3. 35% discount on ground transportation from the airport
4. 10% discount on bike rentals and bike trips, white water rafting, zip lining, horseback riding, spa services and sleigh rides.

WATCH OUT FOR GIMMICKS!
The NUMBER ONE QUESTION we get is “Do you offer discounted lift tickets?” We do not and the reason is this: As long as you do not buy your ticket at the ticket window, ALL the discounts are the same. Do yourself a favor and stop at the kiosk at the grocery store or go to LIFTOPIA.COM and buy your tickets. We do not offer tickets because we cannot offer a better value than you can easily get using one of these options.
You might have heard of a gimmick called “Kids Ski Free” from the big corporate outfit. There are very few instances that this deal actually makes sense. Why pay twice as much for your accommodations and a $15 per day “amenities fee” to save $45 on a kids ski pass. Don’t take our word for it. Do the math and it will be obvious that “Kids Ski Free” is not a deal at all!
WHY RENT FROM US?
We are the personal property manager of the owner. We are a local family owned business.
Conventional wisdom says that you get a better deal if there is no manager involved. This is largely untrue in a high mountain environment like ours. Either the owner is using a management service on the side and ultimately building this cost into the rate or they are leaving everything to chance. Little problems are a BIG deal at 9,000 feet above sea level and in subzero temps. We are there if you lose your key. Being locked out of your condo in sub-zero temps is no fun. This is not a scare tactic. Every year we help several hundred guests with lock-out problems.
GUARANTEED BEST PRICE:
If you like to look for deals, then help us stay current with our deals. We will pay you to do your research. If you find a better deal on a comparable property, then provide us with clear evidence and we will beat the deal by 10%.
Our rates are as good as the best you will find. You are gaining peace of mind and losing nothing. Your vacation is meant to be enjoyed. We are here to make your experience hassle free.
FEES & TAXES
We are required by law to charge tax on your stay.
We want to be clear, taxes and cleaning fees are not included in the posted rates. We will send you a quote with the breakdown of all costs, so you can see EXACTLY what you are paying.
Many of our competitors build their fees into their rate. This means that YOU are PENALIZED every day you stay with them because you keep paying for the same service over and over again.
Please make an apples to apples comparison. If you present us with a legitimate and comparable quote from someone else, we will beat it by 10%.
THINGS TO DO IN KEYSTONE:
Keystone is the premier destination for various events, festivals and one-of-a-kind attractions. These include things such as Mardi Gras, Wine Festival, Beer and Blues Festival, Full Production Concerts, Discovery Days for kids, Art Shows, a real ice castle at the top of the mountain for kids and adults to explore, panning for gold, bungie jumping, and much more. Additionally, you can enjoy Mine Tours, Historical Bus Tours, ATV tours, Four-wheel drive tours, Snowmobiling, horseback riding and sleigh rides. Check out our website for more details on events taking place during your vacation.
Activities include championship golfing (2 courses in Keystone), Mountain biking (down, not up), Wild Life Tours, the best hiking in North America, White Water Rafting, Fly Fishing, and boating, just to name a few. There also Keystone festivals almost every weekend during the summer.

My husband and I had a great stay in Keystone, CO for our postponed honeymoon. The owner of Summit County Mountain Retreats was very accommodating and professional in arranging a perfect summer weekend in the mountains. Much thanks to William and his staff.

Great GetawayGuest comment entered by manager
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this condo. It's a very nice resort area in a very good location. I liked the fact that we were next to the gondola, shops and restaurants. There was so much we could do without using our car. We got a 2 bedroom so our son and his girlfriend could stay with us for a few nights. It had everything we needed and never felt cramped. I would recommend the condo; we would rent it again if we decided to return to the Keystone area another year.

Great top floor condo. We stayed during the off season and loved the peace and quiet. The views are spectacular and the condo is well appointed with stainless appliances, good furniture, and very comfy beds. Really we could not ask for anything more.

This condo has it all. There are beautiful ski slope views. The high ceilings on this top floor unit really make you feel like you are in a top notch place. The condo is packed to the gills with everything you would expect and more. The closest are completely filled with stuff you might need on your trip. This is especially good if you are coming with small children. There is a stroller, pack-in-play, air matress, lots of blankets and pillows, fans, humidifers and so much more. Flying back and forth was so much easier since we only had to bring cloths and not all the extra kids stuff.

Karen, Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay in Keystone. The condo was fantastic. Everything was great. We especially enjoyed the view of the mountain. Also, it was in a very convenient location. We will definately consider it again, as we are already talking about going back. Hope you enjoyed your visit in Carthage. Whenever you get back this way and have time look us up. We would enjoy meeting you. Thanks again, Cathy

Why River Run, Dakota Lodge:
Dakota Lodge has a year-round heated pool with spectacular views of the mountains. It also has two, eight-person hot tubs, a sauna, and a heated parking garage under the building. It is also located in River Run Village, the newest area of Keystone where there are many events and festivals in the winter and summer.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We have madethe condo child-friendly by placing outlet covers over the electrical outlets. We also purchased top of the line humidifiers because we come from a humid climate, and it is very dry in Colorado. If you are traveling with children, we also have a pack-n-play and a stroller in the condo, so you don't have to bring them with you. There is also a selection of DVDs in the condo for you to enjoy. In the winter, you will enjoy the boot warmer to dry your boots after a long day of skiing.
