Mountain House, Tenderfoot Lodge condo description
Our 'Blue Coyote' condo is named after Keystone's infamous wolf-like Blue Coyote that roams the wetlands around the Snake River.
If Little Red Riding Hood stays strictly on the path, she can take just a short 400-step journey out our back porch, across the Snake River bridge and through some woods to Keystone's Mountain House lifts. It is a walk that should take (in ski boots) only about 5-6 minutes. Keystone Ski School, rentals and dinning can all be found at the Mountain House too.
'What big eyes you have...the better to see you with, my dear.' Staying home in the Blue Coyote is a cozy joy with windows in every room that overlook enchanting ski mountain vistas. You can see kids learning to ski at the Mountain House Ski School from our living room...if they are wearing their bright red hoods! The Blue Coyote is a rare, large, end/corner condo that is located on the ground floor.
'What big ears you have...the better to hear you with, my dear.'
All the sounds of the Snake River rushing by can be heard from every room. Tenderfoot Lodge is a very quiet neighborhood that feels more secluded than most despite the fact it is only 275 yards from all the Mountain House action.
'What big Hands You Have...the better to rub together in front of the fire, my dear.' Blue Coyote's guests can sit fireside on nippy nights. Or you can choose to walk 20 steps to the community hot tubs for a soak to warm up your hands.
'What big teeth you have...the better to eat you with, my dear.' The Blue Coyote's kitchen is well-equipped with everything from Flour to a Fondue pot. However, some may rather eat at the world-acclaimed Keystone restaurants, like Alpenglow Stube, The Ranch, Snake River Saloon, Der Fondue Chessel or The Ski Tip Lodge. Each is a special experience.

Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: Dek and I bought our Tenderfoot Lodge condo in the fall of 2003 and we can't imagine life without it now. We are lucky enough to be in professions that allow us to work from home 3 months in the summer and several weeks at Christmas. Our favorite thing to do is biking...even better than skiing. We race to Frisco for lunch daily...I almost always win. Our puppies have made peace with the many animals in the forest, but they still haven't figured out that some animals just don't want to play. We have met the Blue Coyote on two memorable occasions. He is not just a storied beast...he is REAL. Sweet Pea, a 7-year old black Lab mix and Fizzy, 15-year old a Golden Retriever mix, first met the Blue Coyote on Granny's Trail, near our condo...very fitting. They would have been eaten by him if I had not intervened. Fizzy likes to snuggle with porcupines...but just for a second! They love hiking Granny's trail to Keystone Gulch (despite the chance of running into Blue) and if they were allowed, they would chase the ducks at Keystone Lake as long as they didn't have to get into the water.
Why the Owner Chose Mountain House, Tenderfoot Lodge:
Mostly because it is big enough to live in year round without being crowded. Secondly, the convenience to the ski mountain is perfect. And, the Snake River and the bike path is right outside our door! It is our heaven.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Surprisingly, in the many years of skiing in CO since purchasing our condo, we rarely venture out to ski Breck nor Vail because it's just too perfect to walk out our back door to ski. Flying Dutchman is my run. I hope someday to own it. Don't worry, when I start charging people to ski it, I'll give free passes to our renters! LOL. It's pretty great to come in for lunch and take a quick nap before skiing the afternoon away.
