Other Silverthorne Properties condo description

Your very own, top-floor, Buffalo Ridge condo has fabulous mountain views! This spacious (1052 sq.ft.) three bedroom, two bath condo has spectacular views of the Continental Divide, Keystone ski slopes, the Ten Mile Range and Lake Dillon.

Five major ski areas are located within 10-15 miles of this beautiful condo. The Summit County Stage (free bus service) stops at the condo's entrance and provides totally free transportation to Breckenridge, Keystone, Copper Mountain and A-Basin. In addition, Vail/Beaver Creek is about 30 minutes west on I-70. This awesome alpine area is a skier's and hiker's dream come true!

Your lodge-like condo is surrounded by the beauty and wildlife of the Arapahoe National Forest and the Eagle's Nest Wilderness Area. Two hiking trailheads are 1/4 mile from the back doorstep! Imagine yourself rafting the Colorado River or going horseback riding among the beautiful pine and aspen forest.

This condo will accommodate eight people. The Master Suite is furnished with a queen bed. Bedroom #2 also has a queen bed. A spiral staircase leads to the loft (Bedroom #3) which features a queen bed and bunk beds. Please keep in mind that this is a no-smoking condo.

The fully-equipped kitchen is well stocked with all the basics to easily satisfy your cooking needs!

This home-away-from-home has privacy, views and that popular 'cabin feel'. The Colorado mountain decor features a large, woodburning fireplace, cathedral ceilings, and sliding doors opening onto a deck. A generous supply of firewood is provided. We just added a 37' flat screen TV for your enhanced entertainment!

We are happy to report that we can now offer our guests WiFi Internet connection at no extra charge.

Also, our guests really enjoy having the choice of three conveniently located clubhouses--all at no additional cost! The three clubhouses have a heated swimming pool, hot tub, sauna, pool table and game room. One clubhouse also features a racquetball court, and there is even a tennis court for the summer enthusiast.

Covered parking for your car and on-site laundry facilities will also help to make your vacation easier and more comfortable.

Your hosts are Lonni and Steve Bell, the condo's owners. We do want you to be aware that, since the condo is on the third floor, there are stairs to climb. However, a convenient back entrance cuts the climb in half for loading and unloading your car, and the top floor view is absolutely the best in Summit County!

RESERVATION INFORMATION: For your convenience, we now offer a choice of Visa, Mastercard or personal check. To confirm your reservation, we require a deposit for two night's lodging.
Payment of the balance is due 30 days prior to your planned arrival date. A fully refundable $200 security/damage deposit is also required; your refund will be issued within two weeks of your departure.

CANCELLATION POLICY: If you cancel your reservation 30 days or more before your arrival date, we will refund the entire amount you have paid us. If you cancel less than 30 days before your arrival date, we will refund the cleaning fee and damage deposit, but you may forfeit all or part of the rental fee unless we can re-book the dates you had reserved.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1997

                  About the owner: Even though we live in Missouri, we are big Colorado fans. Steve loves to camp and go exploring in these fantastic mountains, and Lonni loves the scenery and the wildlife. We both love the history of the area--the mountain men, the miners, the pioneers, the Native tribes and the fascination of the old West.

                  Why the Owner Chose Other Silverthorne Properties:
                  Our condo is truly our second home; when the temperature is 100 degrees in St. Louis, we like to be in Summit County with temperatures in the 70s! There is always something to do in any season. In the summer we enjoy Farmer's Markets, free concerts at the Dillon Ampitheatre and scenic drives. In the fall we have fun at Oktoberfest festivals in Vail or Breckenridge, along with drives to view the glorious fall foliage. Of course, winter offers the most awesome skiing and snowboarding anywhere!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Nevertheless, our favorite thing to do is sit by the fire in our condo with a cup of coffee or glass of wine and look out at our spectacular view. We often see the red fox trot by (usually early in the morning or around dusk), or maybe we'll catch a glimpse of the moose down below in the old beaver ponds. Whatever, or whenever, we love our condo, and we know you will, too!
