River Run, Dakota Lodge condo description

Five Star Condo in Dakota Lodge, Unit #8498

Holy Canoli, this 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo in Dakota Lodge is what you would call 'amazing' or 'incredible' or some delightful word that Willy Wonka would use to describe something scrumpdiddlyumptious!

You want tons of natural lighting - you've got it! The many windows allow that gorgeous Colorado sunshine in.

You want more space to stretch out your legs? Or arms? Or, as in my case, brain? Just kidding on the brain part. Anyways, stay in this condo and you've got it! Some two bedrooms in Keystone are tiny, tiny, tiny. Close your eyes and think of the opposite of small. You should now have a mental picture of this condo in your mind. Seriously, this unit is over 1100 square feet! There is plenty of room for Sam 1 to dance around the living room while Sam 2 plays Risk at the dining room table and Sam 3 cooks a meal in the kitchen for all the remaining Sams!

When you first walk into the condo, you will notice the CUSTOM BUILT cubbies where you can store your gloves and hats and socks - whatever you wish to store, really. When you wake up for skiing in the morning, you can just grab...and go! This little contraption will help you avoid that annoying habit of leaving your goggles in the condo and not realizing it until you get to the top of the mountain.

The kitchen is quite large and has everything you need to cook a spectacular meal! Or, if you're like me and prefer to eat only Taco Bell, there are plates and forks and knives for you to eat that delicious taco with!

The living room features a brand spankin' new flat screen television, a large fireplace, and a balcony where the teenagers can go sulk if they get mad about how you embarrassed them on the slopes. While they reflect on how life is not fair, they will enjoy ski slope and village views! The sofa pulls out into a queen sized sleeper sofa so you can always make said teenager sleep there!

As you can see in the pictures, the dining room table will comfortably seat 6. If you need additional seating, there are four bar stools off the kitchen island where the others can enjoy their meal.

In both the living room and dining room, you will enjoy the many, many, many, many windows. You probably won't even need to use that darn electricity lighting thing until the evening because the natural sunlight will be a'plenty!

The master bedroom features a comfy king sized bed and a private entrance to the balcony - perfect for giving your loved one a scare if you wish. You also have your own private full bathroom, complete with a his and her sink!

The kiddos can share the guest bedroom, which features 2 twin beds. The second bathroom is right across from their room so they will not be far from the porcelain kingdom!

Dakota Lodge itself is pretty darn cool. You will have access to the outdoor heated pool and 2 hot tubs, where you will enjoy ski slope views whilst conducting your handstand contests. You will also have your own ski locker so don't worry about hauling your equipment all over the building. If you need to do laundry, I weep for you and you will find these facilities on the second and fourth floors. There is also a sauna on the first floor if you can stomach the heat! If you somehow, someway get bored, you have access to the game room in Buffalo Lodge, which is right next door! There you will find a pool table and a 75 inch LCD TV to watch the news! Ahhh, there's just nothing like watching the news on the big screen...

And hey, did I mention that you're literally a 2-4 minute walk to the gondola, depending on how fast your legs enjoy moving? Yep, Dakota Lodge is the place to be if you want to get in as much skiing or riding as possible. It's also ideal for those that enjoy the finer things in life...things like delicious slices of pizza for a reasonable price, or a hot coffee that you are NOT going to spill on yourself. That's because Dakota Lodge is right in the heart of River Run Village, where all the fun is!

Really, you should get here and get to tearing up that powder!

BEST TRANSPORTATION:
Taking the shuttle? Save BIG with Summit Express! 1 to 4 passengers $55, 4 to 8 $45 more than 8 $40. This is 20% to 30% less than the same service from the big boys! Go to our
website, click on the local attractions page. Nobody can come even close to this deal!!! We negotiated the best deal for you and ZERO kickback for us.

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:
WINTER
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, bungee 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.

SUMMER
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.
