Welcome to our condo: As you enter, there are two home made coat hangers for you to use. Drop your groceries on the kitchen table but don't bring too much: you are welcome to use what is in the pantry: sugar, spaghettis, cans, etc. We hope you like what you see when you look around: the long wooden skis belonged to my father who used them at his favorite place: Portillo. On the wall of the kid's room are our daughter's first skis and on the wall next to the fireplace hangs a picture of St. Anton, bought by my grandmother. Our son also fell in love with the West and offers his 2nd home on the western slope in Fruita for rent at VRBO 430103 Enjoy the gas fireplace when it is cold or the balcony with an expansive view of the lake, Keystone trails and the Colorado mountains beyond when it is warm. The gas grill is easy to use.
There is a TV in every room. The jetted hot tub in the guest bathroom is great to loosen sore muscles after a day of skiing or hiking. The building entrance is locked at night and on weekends for your safety. Please remember the combination and register your car at the little station next to the elevator..

In the Summer, Lake Dillon is a great sailing placet. There are bike trails to go everywhere and the Dillon Amphitheater offers free concerts every week end.
In Winter, world class ski areas are 10 to 30 min away by free shuttle or car.
The views out of the condo are always spectacular: in Summer the Lake is dotted with sails, in the Fall, the aspen trees surrounding the lake are shimmering gold, in Winter snow covers lake and mountains and in Spring it is beautiful to see green covering the mountains once again.
Year Purchased: 1973
About the owner: We are Kenneth and Inge Kirkland. Ken hails from Oklahoma and he wanted to live in Colorado ever since he was a little boy. Inge hails from Chile and never thought about moving to the USA until she met Ken skiing in Portillo!! We have used the condo to ski in Winter and have fun in the Summer with our four kids. Now we are empty nesters and want to share it with you, hoping our guests will enjoy their time in the mountains. We communicate in English-Spanish-German-Portuguese and are also available as knowledgeable mountain guides for a negotiable fee.
Why the Owner Chose Lodge at Lake Dillon: The Lodge is a well built place: stressed cement is safer in the mountains than wood! Also, the lobby of the building provides safety from uninvited visitors. The views are spectacular, sports and cultural activities to fill every need are plentiful and close by. Every season in the mountains has its own appeal: Winter attracts snow-sport enthusiasts, Spring brings back greenery and fishermen, in Summer flowers bloom everywhere and the Lake is full of little white sails you can watch lying by the outdoor heated pool and finally: Fall is quiet and saturated with warm sunshine spilling through the golden leaves of the Aspen trees. At each season, there is something worthwhile and unforgettable to do and enjoy.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Whether you want to be active or just come to relax: this place is for you. At every season you can choose to exert yourself outdoors or just stay put and watch TV, read, play games, enjoy the fireplace, the jetted tub, the swimming pool or just lie in the hammock on the balcony.
