BUILDING QUALITY & AMENITIES *****(5 Stars) Dakota Lodge is one of the more exclusive and newest 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 the mountains 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 a 1 minute walk to 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.

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, 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.
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.

Great place, with a very nice kitchen. We were able to eat in the room the whole time we were there, including a full dinner. The location could not have been any better!

Perfect family ski vacation
Perfect family ski vacation
We loved our stay. The condo was very nicely decorated and stocked. My husband appreciated the high def tv's with on-demand movies available. The location was great, a short walk to the gondola, ski school and restaurants. It was my first time staying at Keystone and I was very pleasantly surprised at the effort to make it so fun in the village area. My kids (4 and 6) participated in the hay ride parade to the ice rink where s'mores and hot cider were served, they got a ride back to the condo from a penguin drawn sled, enjoyed a magic show, and the great ice sculptures all on the short commute from ski school to the condo. The outdoor pool and hot tubs were a big hit too. The view from the rooms was great, I think the best in the lodge. We just returned from a similar stay in Breckenridge and next time I'm going to try to go back to the Dakota. Also, the mountain is really great for young kids. The gondola goes to the top of the mountain and you can take a 3 mile green run to the bottom which was fantastic fun for my 6 year old son, so much better than repeating short runs at the bottom of the mountain.

Fantastic family ski retreat
Perfect unit, great views of the mountain and overlooking the really nice hot tubs and pool. It was really easy access to the gondola and just far enough away to avoid the crowds. Keystone mountain is absolutely perfect for young kids. There is a gondola all the way to the top and even little ones can get in a 3 mile run if desired. I was really impressed by Keystone's efforts, from performers and parades at the end of the day to an unexpected fireworks display. "Best vacation ever" declared by my 4 and 6 year old!
