UNIT SIZE AND QUALITY: *****(5 Stars). This condo is a large, corner unit and is one of the largest two bedroom condos in Dakota Lodge with approximately 1,050 square feet of space. Both bedrooms feature a BRAND NEW 5 star luxury hotel KING sized beds with luxurious bedding and cozy mattress toppers, cable TV, and a private balcony and bathroom. The second bedroom features a new king sized bed, new bedding, and a new flatscreen LCD TV as well. After a long day of skiing or biking, you can enjoy the gas fireplace while watching a movie in the living room. You will find a 42 inch flat screen HD TV and DVD player in the living room.

In the closets, you will find plenty of extra blankets, sheets for the sleeper sofa, pillows, humidifiers, fans, and iron/ironing board. This unit is very close to the elevator.
VIEWS **** (4 Stars) This condo features mountain views in the distance, as well as the ice skating rink and playground in front of Dakota Lodge. You can sit on the balcony and enjoy watching your children play at the playground or miniature golf course.
BUILDING QUALITY & AMENITIES ****(4 Stars) Dakota Lodge was completed in the late 90’s and 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. There is one 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. The gathering areas are beautifully decorated and have ample seating on couches and living room style chairs for large groups. If you are looking for a little more intimate hot tub experience, Buffalo has two smaller and secluded hot tubs for your enjoyment.
PROXIMITY TO ACTIVITIES ***** (5 Stars) This condo is approximately 100 feet from the River Run village which features many excellent businesses including restaurants, shopping, bars, winter and summer sports rentals and great people watching. It is also approximately 150 meters to 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!
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.

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.

Summer RetreatGuest comment entered by manager
SUMMER RETREAT...Because I live in AZ, I have been coming to Summit County for the past 6 years and spending the month of July or August. This area has more to offer than any other place I've found. I plan to return again in 2011.

"HOME" away from home
Thanks for all of your extra attention for us-Colorado was just perfect in every way--location, comfort, roomy, clean and "home" away from home. Condo is well appointed and we enjoyed pool, playground, village activities and just the Colorado fresh air!! Beds were comfortable and bedrooms and baths were roomy and living area was enough for 5 people to feel comfortable--thanks for a nice memory!

Keystone 2011Guest comment entered by manager
This was a great property with plenty of room for 6-8 guests. A short walk to the lifts made it very convenient for everyone to be on their own schedule. I would definitely stay on this property again.
