River Run, Buffalo Lodge condo description

Buffalo Lodge, 8326

You've arrived and are ready to relax. This cozy, nicely furnished 1 bedroom unit is centrally located to all River Run has to offer. After a long day on the slopes or a summer bike ride, soak in 1 of the 2 hot tubs, then open a bottle of wine and enjoy the balcony with mountain views or warm up by the gas fireplace on a snowy day. There is a large flat screen TV for those that prefer to remain in the condo and watch their favorite program. If you are traveling with extra guests, there is a sleeper sofa for your convenience. We provide sheets and there are extra blankets in the closet. For the cook in the family, there is a fully stocked kitchen. If grilling is your thing, there is a common area BBQ grill managed by the HOA near the hot tubs. The bedroom features a brand new KING bed with luxurious bedding and cable TV. The bathroom is stocked with plenty of linens and an initial supply of soap, shampoo and toiletries to begin your stay. If you need to do laundry, there are coin operated washers and dryers in the building. Buffalo Lodge has free internet. There are ski lockers on the first floor and if pool is your game, there are 2 pool tables located in the lobby of the building. If you feel you need to spread out, there is a VERY large flat screen TV and couches in the lobby as well.

A short walk (150 yards) allows for easy access to the high-speed, 8 person gondola, You are also steps from restaurants, shops, ski rental facilities, and a small grocery store.

Buffalo 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 are two high speed elevators that service only 90 units. Enjoy no hassle parking in the heated parking garage under the building. Laundry facilities are located on both the first and fifth floor. After a day of activities, come back to the exclusive BUFFALO CLUB located on the ground floor of Buffalo Lodge and enjoy the hot tubs, pool tables, or enjoy a good book in one of several sitting areas. Our guests also have exclusive access to the heated swimming pool and sauna at the adjoining Dakota Lodge.

All of our discounts are listed on our website. 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.
5. $10 off snowmobiling

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!

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.

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.

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%.


Keystone is the premier destination for various events, festivals and one-of-a-kind attractions.
