River Run, Buffalo Lodge condo description

Buffalo Lodge #8332
WHAT'S NEW: High-end sleeper sofa sectional, carpet, paint, beds, Large LCD and more!

INTERIOR QUALITY: *****(5 Stars) This spacious condo offers more room to stretch your legs after a long day of adventures – 33% more room than a typical 2 bedroom, in fact! Your entire family will rest easy with the sleeping accommodations, which includes a KING sized bed in the master, 2 twin beds in the second room and a high quality sleeper sofa in the living room. Have small children? No problem! You will find a pack ‘n’ play in the unit for your convenience. No need to spend a lot of money eating out, either; there is a fully equipped kitchen so that you can enjoy a home cooked meal in the comfort of your home-away-from-home! The dining table seats 4 people comfortably.
Is someone in your family feeling more like chilling out, maxin’ and relaxin’ all cool? No need for them to start making trouble in the neighborhood because we’re sure they will enjoy catching up on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air on the LCD TV, complete with a DVD player. That’s right; Johnny can kick back, make some popcorn, warm his feet by the fire and veg out to the television while you go climb that 14er! Climb on, Wayne.


VIEWS **** (5 Stars) With stunning views of the mountains from the living room, bedrooms, and balcony, you are sure to enjoy this beautiful condo. The balcony is a great spot to admire your kingdom, ‘cause you’re finally there. So sit back and take in that fresh mountain air.

AMENITIES *****(5 Stars) Buffalo Lodge is one of the more 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. Forget hauling all your stuff up the stairs – you’re on VACATION. There are two high speed elevators so give those legs a rest! Early birds do, in fact, get the worm and they certainly don’t waste time having to brush snow off their car (though opposable thumbs would make that easier). You’re no fool. You’re going to park your car in the underground heated parking garage, free of charge! Did Peter get marinara sauce all over his favorite shirt? No sweat off your back – there are laundry rooms on the second and fourth floor and it just so happens your condo is a mere 20 foot walk away. After a day of activities, come back to the exclusive BUFFALO CLUB located on the ground floor of Buffalo Lodge and enjoy the 2 private hot tubs, pool tables, or enjoy a good book in one of several sitting areas. Or people watch! Or sing quietly to yourself about how great of a vacation you’re having! Or just sit there and smile because you’re having such a good time! Are you less of a pool shark and more of a pool fish? Enjoy the outdoor heated swimming pool and sauna at the adjoining Dakota Lodge with 2 additional 16 person hot tubs. Don’t want to walk outside in your fancy bathing suit? Just walk through the underground heated parking garage to the Dakota Lodge elevator and whoop, there it is!

PROXIMITY TO ACTIVITIES ***** (5 Stars) A short walk or an even shorter skip-session allows for easy access to the new, high-speed, 8 person gondola. You are also steps from restaurants, shops, ski rental facilities, and a small grocery store. Everything you need is within a couple of minutes walking distance. But we recommend literally skipping to wherever you want to go. People will know it is because you got a rocking deal on an oversized condo and you’re loving life.


All of our discounts are listed on our website. 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!
2. 20% discount on Door to Door VIP ski rentals
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.
5. $10 off snowmobiling

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!

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.

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.

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%.

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.

                          Why River Run, Buffalo Lodge:
                          Buffalo Lodge is close to shopping, restaurants, ski school, childcare, and ski rentals. The new gondola is approximately 150 yards away. I don't have to drive anywhere unless I want to. In the summer, the miniature golf course and playground are right in front of the building.
