Summit County is the center of Colorado recreation and Dillon is the center of Summit County. The county offers year-round vacation options of every type. The Lodge at Lake Dillon sits on a bluff overlooking the lake with Spectacular Views of the Lake, Marina, and Keystone all four seasons! Imagine ending your day on the Private Balcony, cooking on the Gas BBQ Grill, eating and looking across the lake at the lights of the homes on the opposite mountain and during ski season, the lighted runs at Keystone.
Winter in Summit County:
Summit County ski areas have worked all summer to improve snow-making equipment, lifts, and dining. Skiers will love the quick access to Keystone Ski Area, just 6 miles away, as well as the close proximity to Breckenridge Resort, Copper Mountain, Arapahoe Basin ski area (usually open until mid-June), and Vail/Beaver Creek. There are Dinner Sleigh Rides near Breckenridge and Frisco and Tubing hills at Copper Mountain and Keystone! Summit County has two Nordic Centers offering excellent cross-country skiing, as well as a Tubing Hill for kids of all ages.
Spring, Summer, and Fall in Summit County:
Dillon and the rest of Summit County is the place to be summers. Escape the heat of the city, plains, desert, or wherever else you're from. There are food festivals, concerts, golf tournaments, car rallies, etc. every weekend throughout the summer and early fall!
Visitors will enjoy the Alpine Slide at Breckenridge's Peak 8, water-sports (sailing, kayaking, fishing) on Lake Dillon, bicycling or hiking the many paved bike paths and old dirt mining roads throughout the mountains. There is great fly fishing on the many rivers and creeks throughout the county. The Lake Dillon Amphitheater, two blocks away features Sunday Morning Church Services, Free Summer Concerts, Farmer's Markets, and other events. If you like shopping, the Silverthorne Factory Outlets are 2 miles away. Frisco and Breckenridge have many fine Antique Shops and Art Galleries just minutes away.
Summit County has several challenging Golf Courses, including the Jack Nicholas-designed Breckenridge Golf Club, the Robert Trent Jones-designed Keystone Ranch Golf Course, and the Raven Golf Club at Three Peaks. There are few places more beautiful to golf in the world. The Vail/Beaver Creek golf courses are less than 45 minutes away as well.
Dillon is a quaint little town with a number of Shops and Restaurants. Everything in town is within easy walking distance, including the local Theater, Bowling Alley, Thrift Shops, and Post Office, and city park with basketball, softball, and bocce ball.
This is my personal getaway and I know you will love it as much as I do. I have nearly 100 positive reviews in my online Guest Book and dozens more in the guest book in the condo.
I've been coming to Dillon and Summit County since I was a child, before Lake Dillon was created. I never get tired of the wide variety of activities the county offers visitors year-round. Several of the older buildings in town were moved uphill to their current locations when the lake was being created. They provide an interesting glimpse into Colorado History. More can be learned at the History Museum a block from the condo.
Please, NO PETS and NO SMOKING allowed inside the condo OR on the balcony. These are Lodge at Lake Dillon Rules. I've also worked hard to keep it Hypoallergenic to avoid health issues for all our guests.
This 800 square foot (22.65 square meters) condo can easily accommodate four guests but occasionally someone will inquire about allowing additional guests. One additional child can sleep on the sofa, but it's not a pull-out and there isn't room for an inflatable bed on the floor. There is a small fee for an additional person and we need to know in advance so we can set out towels and bedding for them.
No cancellations within 30 days; if more than 30 days in advance, refunded only if re-booked. We urge guests to purchase travel insurance in case your travel plans change. I personally use it and highly recommend it to others. It has saved me when my travel plans have changed.

VRBO Bear stayed here:
I cleverly planned my getaway to Dillon, CO when the fall colors were at their peak because I couldn’t miss another autumn in the Rocky Mountains! The drive up from Denver took about an hour, but I was already feeling more relaxed by the time I arrived at the Lodge at Lake Dillon. It was easy to find and the location couldn’t be more perfect. Surrounded by majestic mountains, it was nestled on a bluff over beautiful Lake Dillon and within walking distance of coffee shops, locally-owned restaurants and the grocery store.
It instantly felt like a private mountain lodge the minute I walked in the condo. I could tell that a lot of effort went into making this unit special and welcoming. After I took in the stunning view of the lake and mountains from both the living area and the second bedroom, I appreciated the condo’s other thoughtful touches. I loved the wooden stools, doors, and cabinets which gave the condo a cozy, rustic mountain feel. The wood flooring, bedroom carpeting, and the kitchen granite countertops were in excellent condition. The spacious tiled shower, fluffy towels and pretty candle sconces on the walls added to the overall comfort of this home.
The kitchen was stocked with every utensil a cook could ever need. Even the pantry covered the basics I had forgotten like coffee and olive oil. After a quick trip to the market, I was ready to make several home-cooked meals in the well-equipped kitchen.
I thoroughly enjoyed the brisk and colorful bike ride around Lake Dillon. I really fell in love with Dillon and the friendly people who smiled and waved as we passed each other on the family-friendly bike path. Before long, I was ready to head back to the condo and relax with a book in the comfy leather chair in front of a roaring fire. And when it was time to call it a night; I could have easily hibernated all winter in the bed’s luxuriously soft sheets!
Who says you have to drive hours west for a true mountain experience? My trip to Dillon was everything I could have asked for and more. Plus, I didn’t even use a whole tank of gas! We will definitely be visiting again soon. The snow was falling as we checked out and this bear can’t wait to pack a snowboard for his next visit to Dillon, CO!

We absolutely loved our 3 night stay at this beautiful condo. It snowed the entire weekend and the warmth inside and beauty outside made for a memorable stay and one we want to repeat . The unit had everything we needed and a fully appointed kitchen. The unit was very clean and the Lodge was a lovely retreat with friendly neighbors. We would highly recommend this condo but would prefer to keep it our secret! The restaurants in the area are wonderful when we weren't enjoying cooking in the beautiful kitchen.

My stay in this condo was very pleasant. I was delighted when I walked in the door to see a VRBO owner who put in much time and care to his property. This owner wants you to feel comfortable and at home in a truly "pet free", clean, updated environment. You really feel like a guest here. I was a woman traveling alone and I felt very safe in this condo. I was also pleasantly surprised at the building itself being so well maintained for its age. I loved the location. Walking the bike path, park, restaurants and taking the city bus to shopping areas was delightful. I was very happy with the administration/reservation aspect, all was done easily, and pleasantly. I would not hesitate to recommend this property and certainly would stay here again. My only hope is that it will be soon!

Shannon does a great job and we try hard to make it as simple as possible. I've been up getting ready for our holiday and winter guests. It's snowing right now in Denver so winter and skiing isn't far behind! Thanks again. Marvin
Great family condo
Great family condo
We stayed here with our two daughters over Labor Day weekend. The condo is great for families. The kitchen had everything we needed and my oldest loved the children's books. The view is great and it was nice to sit out on the patio. The location is also perfect. We were able to walk or bike along the path right below. It is within walking distance to a great park, the marina, and the amphitheater where we went to one of the free concerts. Only suggestion is to maybe add some darker curtains in the second bedroom. While the view is beautiful it was also very bright early in the morning when the some comes up. Overall great experience and hope to come back soon!

Owner response: Thanks so much for your review, Meghan. We're glad you liked the condo. Your comments about the curtains are not the first. I've had people say they love sleeping with the curtains open so they wake up and watch the sun come up over the mountains and lake and others that prefer sleeping in. However, I've been thinking about adding them so will measure and look at options my next trip up. Thanks again! We look forward to seeing you and your family again. Marvin
My husband and I wanted to rent a cabin on a lake for our Anniversary. We procrastinated and all the cabins were either booked or way too expensive. When we found this Lake Dillon Condo, we had hit the jackpot and didn't know it yet! I was so set on renting a cabin and not a condo. When we got to the condo it was just what we wanted and more! It was super clean and so ridiculously cozy! It felt like a log cabin in the mountains, the only thing was that it also has a breathtaking view of the lake. I woke up early the whole trip just to watch the sunrise from the bed. We are so glad we accidentally found this mountainy, cozy place. We will definitely come back! Nikki

Owner response: Thanks, Nikki! We're glad you accidentally found us and love the condo. I really like "ridiculously cozy"...that sums it up for us too. We work hard to keep it very clean and organized as well as fully stocked with amenities for guests. You are right, sitting on the patio watching the sun come up is amazing. Thanks again, we can't wait for you to come back up. Marvin
Great experience at this property!

The building is older, but this condo is newly renovated and very accommodating. We took our two young children and were pleasantly surprised by all the kids movies, books and games that were provided at the condo. It was immaculately organized and clean. We would recommend this property to anyone seeking a relaxing vacation spot.

Owner response: Thanks, Melissa. We're glad you had a great time. We love having families visit so keep the condo well stocked with kid's videos and books, as well as special dishes and utensils for them. Yes, the building is older but that's how it commands the best view of Lake Dillon and Keystone Resort. It's also very quiet due to the solid concrete construction. Our manager keeps it very clean and in very good condition. Thanks again; we can't wait for you and your family to return. Marvin
We felt right at home in this well-equipped and well-cared for condo. You can tell the owner really cares about his place and the people he invites in. He has thought of everything! Every possible convenience and all the information that you would like to learn about the surrounding area, including restaurants, recreation, places to visit and what to do while you are there. Also, plenty of interesting books and DVDs if you feel like just hanging out. I would recommend this place to everyone!

This condo was really a very nice 2 bedroom unit. We feel like we got super value for the price. Nicely equipped with all you might want for the week. Close to grocery stores and to the ski resorts as well. Thanks for the great week notwithstanding road closure which kept us from the unit fri. and sat. that we arrived. Still would recommend staying again.

Cozy Lake Dillon Lodge Condo
Cozy Lake Dillon Lodge Condo
This 2 bed/ 2 bath is absolutely beautiful, immaculately clean, cozy and welcoming with a gorgeous view of Lake Dillon. It was evident the owner spared no expense with remodeling updates. Definitely a must and felt like home away from home. Other than some clothes and groceries everything else was supplied including an extensive video entertainment library for all ages, children's books and games! Our family has utilized vrbo extensively for several years and I can say this is the first where everything was perfectly labeled and organized to either find or put items away. This unit is a must for anyone considering a weekend getaway. We will not hesitate to stay here in the future. Thank you for providing us with such an enjoyable weekend in a lovely town with some great establishments!

This was my first experience to use VRBO.com and I was totally blown away with the professionalism of making the reservation to when we first entered the condo. I had no idea of what to expect but my expectation were far exceeded by this rental property. The condo was better stocked than my own home. I own timeshare weeks and had I know about VRBO.com before I purchased them, I would not have made that purchase. The view of the lake and the convenience to the Keystone Skii area was fantastic. The owner had assembled an extensive notebook about the facility as well as nearby attractions and restaurants - nothing was left unsaid and the expectations as far as checkout were very clear. I would highly recommend this property to anyone and I'm hopeful that we can visit again in the near future.

About the owner: I live in metro Denver, about 80 miles from Summit County. I've lived in Colorado much of my life and can't imagine living anywhere else full-time. The weather, scenery, activities, and sports combine to make it a wonderful place to live. I've been in the travel industry for most of my career with travel agencies and airlines and have managed reservation and frequent flier systems for several large domestic and international airlines. I've traveled to over 55 countries and am a big fan of vacation rentals. In addition to staying in mine, I've enjoyed VRBO homes in Beijing, Nicaragua, Panama, London, Paris, Hawaii, St Thomas, Barbados, Normandy,and others. I really enjoy meeting other owners that also have a passion for the industry. Feel free to contact me to get information about my Lodge at Lake Dillon Condo, local activities, or anything else pertaining to Summit County or Colorado travel and tourism.
Why the Owner Chose Lodge at Lake Dillon:
I've been visiting Summit County since I was a child, before Lake Dillon was created. My dad and I used to fish the Blue River, one of the three rivers that now flow into the lake. I had looked for a condo for two years and instantly fell in love with this unit when I walked through the front door. I love being able to get away from the city and into the mountains quickly. The Lodge at Lake Dillon has a great location overlooking the lake and Keystone Resort. Dillon has a small town feel and is centrally located to the many nearby activities. I spend a lot of time up there, making sure it's in top condition. I regularly change the quilts and other decorator items, as well as updating the video collection and books. I just added a new ceiling fan in the living room as well as a new padded living storage box which doubles as a large footrest.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
There's nothing like an early morning cup of coffee on the patio overlooking the lake. Many times I am able to watch hawks or eagles soaring or sitting in the trees below. Sometimes I hear coyotes on the mountains across the lake. I really enjoy walking two blocks down the street to the Arapahoe Cafe for breakfast - the best in the county. I ate there as a kid, before the building was moved to its present position from what is now the bottom of the lake. The Lodge is directly across the street from the Free Summit Stage stop which takes guests all over the county. It's also across the street from the weekly summer Farmers Market and many Summer Festivals are held. The Dillon Marina and Pug's Tiki Bar are steps away, down the bike path from the Lodge.
