Property description

Welcome to Dillon’s Best Nest! Our mountain retreat is filled with light and showcases spectacular views through more than 20 windows! This is a special place for family, friends, and children to gather. We have already created amazing memories and hope you will do the same. Enjoy floor-to-ceiling windows with views of Lake Dillon, Ten Mile Range and Gore Range, beautiful aspens, and endless sky-- all on a 1/2 acre of land. The family room has cathedral ceilings with a two-story stone wood-burning fireplace.

The open floor plan keeps loved ones and friends close for conversation between kitchen, dining and living areas, while two main floor bedrooms feature queen beds with fleece blankets, country quilts, black-out curtains, cozy chairs, and a wall of books. A spiral staircase leads to a third loft-style bedroom with two twin beds and lots of room to spread out. Free Wi-Fi, board games, use of our collection of guidebooks and movies, cable TV, and wood-burning stove make this a family-friendly place to call home after a big day out skiing, biking, sailing or hiking.

**If you need more space, we have a lock-off studio on site. The studio provides another queen bed, sitting room, bathroom and small kitchen. Please let us know if this is something you would like to learn more about. If you have more than 6 guests, multiple families or need more space, this might be a good option for you.**

Because this is a 'home away from home,' we've worked hard to make this a place where you feel completely comfortable. The pantry and kitchen are well stocked with spices for cooking, olive and vegetable oils, salt & pepper, flour, baking supplies, etc. There are plenty of plates and silverware, cooking utensils, glasses/mugs, toaster oven, coffee pot, and coffee grinder. There are place settings for eight people, plus extras. Bathrooms have been remodeled. Our home is professionally cleaned after every rental so you can be sure it will be clean and fresh for your stay!

We know it’s the personal touches that matter--we've developed our own guidebook of recommended restaurants, ski locations, hikes, festivals, bike trails, and other best of Summit County and Vail. We've explored this area for over 20 years and know it well. We want to share our knowledge with you to help make this a wonderful experience--where you come to know both the best tourist AND local spots!

Walk to the lake, marina, playground equipment, outdoor amphitheater and restaurants. There are amazing and high quality golf courses nearby. The huge deck on the front has a gas grill and patio table for outdoor dining and views. During the winter--snowshoe, cross country ski, ice skate, and sled—-all within 5 to 10 minutes of the house. If you’re here to ski, why commit to just one ski area when you can have easy access to five world-class resorts, all within a short drive:

Keystone: 5 minutes
Arapahoe Basin: 10 minutes
Copper Mountain: 15 minutes
Breckenridge: 20 minutes
Vail: 30 minutes

We hope you consider us for your stay, and make this a place where you want to come back to create your own special memories. Thanks for looking and please contact us with any questions.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are a fun-loving, welcoming and honest family who lives in Denver. We use this as a mountain retreat when we can get away. We live close enough to our property to provide the maintenance, love and care it needs. We often use VRBO for our own vacations and know the special touches and details needed to make a stay memorable. We've enjoyed staying at other people's homes, and want to offer ours out, too. It's a little piece of our own dream shared with others.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
We want to raise our family with a love of the outdoors, and in Colorado, there is no better location than Summit County for quick access from Denver to amazing scenery and activities. We know know there are rainy and snowy days where being outside isn’t in the plans. That’s why we love Dillon—everything is close, from the 8-screen cinema to bowling to live theater to an amazing recreation center complete with indoor pool, hot tubs and water slides, plus the 50+ shops at the nearby outlet mall. This truly is an amazing place to visit, to get out and about, and still come home for a browse at Borders, a movie or a dinner out. We can also walk to public tennis and basketball courts, playground equipment and outdoor concerts in the summer. You can have a complete vacation here-- rain, shine, any season. Dillon Town is charming, small and has everything a visitor can need. The area is not over-developed, has an amazing history, and the lake surrounded by mountains reminded us of backpacking trips to Switzerland. It's a down-to-earth place, and we feel so lucky to have found this amazing home in such an exceptional place.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Amazing, inspiring south-facing views Light, bright, and airy The incredible character and history of this particular home The open layout and soaring ceilings Cozy rooms, beds, books, movies and games Hot showers with great water pressure, great for post-skiing Wood-burning fireplace Huge deck with panoramic views Strolls to the lake and marina Convenience and accessibility New playground equipment and family-friendly amenities nearby Windows, windows and more windows!
