River Run, River Bank Lodge condo description
It's mid 'Christmas - New Years' week and there's much activity in Keystone. We're in Canada with our daughter and son-in-law for the holidays. Snow is flying and the ’13 – ’14 winter sports season is well underway. We’ve received many new inquiries these last few weeks and have booked many nights. There are many prime dates still available, so don’t delay making that inquiry any longer. Several January dates are 'sold out' in the River Bank Lodge inventory but we may still have your nights open. Check our calendar to confirm. We’ll ‘hold’ your dates as long as we possibly can while you firm up your family and travel plans. If you procrastinate the opportunity to book may be completely lost.
In July we completed a significant remodeling project and have just posted many new photos of our condo showing the results. The old wallpaper has been removed, and the walls have been painted & texturized. The ceiling has been painted throughout. The new carpet, is a “plush” commercial grade, looks great and adds to the warmth of the unit. The new Queen-sized bed and new Simmons Beauty Rest mattress set, night stand, table lamp, and floor lamp are a perfect upgrade for the bedroom. The new Cabela’s bedspread and pillow covers top off the entire bedroom remake to enhance the “Western Mountains” feeling and decor. We’ve got new drapes for the bedroom being installed soon and the new privacy curtain for the Jacuzzi shower matches the bedroom bedding. The woodwork throughout the condo has been re-stained and we’ve installed new drawer pulls in the kitchen. The new ‘dorm sized’ refrigerator has been installed. The sofa and the dining room table have exchanged places from those shown in old photos you may have seen. The fireplace mantle has been removed, and a new ceiling light fixture has been installed over the sofa. Other changes have also been completed, so please come check them out.
Keystone Resorts is busy planning events and activities for the coming winter months and holidays to enhance your stay. Other area activities are always being scheduled and I can't keep up with them all so we’ll leave most of that research up to you. Check out the Keystone 'links' for more information on those local events and activities. Make your plans early for your vacation lodging. You will find our availability dates on our 'AVAILABILITY CALENDAR' next to this introduction. Checking it will save everyone time and effort as you explore lodging options.
Be sure to view the gallery of photos of our condo and Dercum Mountain. Know that what you see is what you'll get. You're assured of a great view and amenities as shown, not something you're assigned at check-in from the available 'pool' of remaining units in a lodging inventory. We've seen fox, ducks, geese, crows, and trout (15+ inches) from our picture windows during our previous stays. We'll guess that you'll see wetlands wildlife as well. You'll want to consider the 'WOW Factor' when making your lodging choice. The photos and memories that you'll take home with you will last well beyond your departure and that's what we're doing on vacation, isn't it -- building memories?
Please call or write for additional details. If our unit is booked we can sometimes help with referrals to other Riverbank Lodge owners which might earn you the coveted 'Hero' status with your family.
If you are interested in booking and your dates are showing 'Available' contact us ASAP. I do my best to keep the calendar current for your convenience. Keystone frequently sells out of River Bank Lodge 1-BR units like ours. Contact us ASAP and we can probably 'hold' them for you while you firm up your plans. If you wait, that opportunity may be lost. We know you are 'shopping' for good deals. Please understand that while it's 'First Come -- First Served', we try to reply to all inquiries promptly. If your dates get reserved by another guest before we receive a positive response, there's little we can do. A response to our “Offer Email” is always much appreciated and may avoid a lost opportunity as inquiries often come in bunches for the same dates. It’s very helpful to know what to tell each inquiry as soon as possible.
Don't be fooled by other listings advertising really low rates. They may throw in extra fees (e.g., $100 cleaning fees, Key fee, etc.) or be a distance from the shops/activities/lifts & slopes requiring shuttle bus or auto travel. Our rates specify exactly what you're lodging expense will be. Nothing is hidden or added later.
My wife and I've installed two NEW 'Flat Panel' LCD HD TVs in our unit. The one in the living room is a 32 in. Panasonic, and the bedroom has a 24 in. Vizio. Our HD satellite signal provider is Dish Network. FREE, High Speed Wireless Internet service is also provided.
We purchased and installed a new glass dining room table and six chairs in the 'southwest' style in April 2010. The next July we added a rustic hutch for the kitchenette area, providing more storage and adding to our unit's 'southwest' theme. It has now been moved into the new ‘entry-way’ niche to make more room in the kitchen.
Our condo, Unit # 2906, is located in the River Bank Lodge, which is in the River Run Village area of Keystone. A short 5 – 8 minute, 400 yard walk will have you at the Keystone Gondola loading station. In less than half that distance you can be in the heart of Keystone's River Run Village shopping, restaurants, and night life. To make your stay a bit more enjoyable you won’t have to put up with a time consuming ‘check-in’ process. Our Property Management Company, “Book By Owner”, has installed a lock-box beside our condo door for access to the electronic swipe card key for entry. Additional cards are located inside, along with a parking Hang-Tag for your vehicle.
During the summer/fall of 2009, our Condo Association made a number of upgrades to the interior and exterior of the building to enhance your vacation experience. They include new carpet in the halls and stairways, a new enlarged deck on the rear of the building overlooking the wetlands, new paint on the exterior of the building, installed a new roof, and a new water heating system providing for nearly instantaneously available HOT Water, and re-sealed/stripped the parking lot. In April 2011 they opened our new workout area. More recently we’ve remodeled all ‘common area’ bathrooms. Parking is free, open-air, and off-street. There is one parking space for each unit for your car. Additional parking is available nearby, if needed.
My wife and I purchased this condo in the fall of 2005. We looked at many condos in the Keystone Resort area before deciding on the River Bank Lodge for the incredible view, the Jacuzzi, and the serenity. Unit #2906 is on the first floor and second from the center of the building to the right, when viewed from the parking lot. Several of the pictures you'll see on this site were taken from our 'wall of windows'. When you book with us, what you'll get is what you can see for yourself before you book. It's almost like owning our unit as your personal 'Time Share', without the tax, maintenance, and upkeep expenses.
The vista from our living room gives you the feeling that you are in the middle of the wilderness, yet you are but a 5-8 minute walk, less than 400 yards, from all the shops and the River Run gondola. The Village has several fine restaurants, coffee shops, and sports bars. For a truly remarkable dining experience, make a reservation at the 5 Star “Alpenglow Stube”. You’ll ride the gondola up Dercum Mt. and a second lift to the top of North Peak at 11,444’ above sea level where you’ll start your dining experience near a fireplace wearing warm slippers. After dinner and the gondola ride to the base, spend a romantic evening in our condo with its fireplace and Jacuzzi. You’ll have to provide the sparks!!!!!
One of the best kept secrets of the Rocky Mountains is Keystone in the summer. Keystone has two championship golf courses. For the more adventuresome guest, the gondola will take you and your mountain bike to the top of the mountain so that you can enjoy an easy ride down on groomed roads or, a thrill ride down via the bike trails. Check out all of the other activities in the surrounding area to enhance your summer vacation experience.
We'd like to extend an apology to any of our guest's whose inquiries during July and August, 2010, went unanswered. Our family experienced the tragic loss of our oldest daughter and we had family business which took precedence. We’d like to extend a special thanks to those who wrote expressing sympathy, consolation, and offers of assistance. Kandace will be missed, but will be forever in our hearts, as she was our “Santa Fe Connection”.

Owner response: Major, it was our pleasure to offer our condo for your get-a-way with your wife and son. Welcome home. Thank you and your family for your service and sacrifice for all of us. Stay safe.
My son and I stayed 3 nights for a quick ski trip. The condo is in great shape, very clean, with recently updated decor. It has a great view of the slopes, looking across the frozen wetlands. It is very convenient to the River Run area of Keystone- an easy 5 minute walk to the gondola lift. We stored our skis at the rental shop so we did not have to carry them back and forth. The ski area also has wagons you can use to haul your equipment if you have too much to carry. The price seemed very reasonable for the location and great condition of the condo. The condo has some great features. The bed was very comfortable. There are flat screen tvs in the living room and the bedroom. The jacuzzi tub was great after skiing all day. The separate tub and sink and toilet and sink areas make it very convenient for multiple guests. We used the small kitchen to prepare breakfast and lunch. Everything worked perfectly. Gary was great to work with. He provided plenty of information and kept me informed along the way. I highly recommend this place.

Owner response: We appreciate your nice comments on our condo's appearance and amenities after our remodeling and upgrading this last July. It was our pleasure to host you and your son.
Convenience at it's best
Convenience at it's best
This little unit is all about the view and the convenience. Nothing beats sitting in front of the fire and having a wall of windows that look out to the mountain. No one is going to walk in front of the windows and you have complete privacy AND view. Who wants to look at another condo building or parking lot?? We saw a red fox walking across the frozen pond and within 20 feet of the condo - that was special. The unit is tastefully decorated with some new furniture, new carpeting, and very clean. It was plenty for two but might be a little tight for 4 adults. The location couldn't be any more convenient - it's a short walk to the village and the shuttle is right across the street. We took the Peru lift at Mountain Base to Montezuma every day and was in the middle of the action. At the end of the day, went back to Mountain Base were the crowds are much thinner. The owners are very easy to work with.

Owner response: Thanks for your kind comments about our condo and it's location, amenities, and view. It was our pleasure to host our friends from Michigan.
What a wonderful condo! The owners were very pleasant and prompt during the reservation process and everything was exactly as described when we got there. We LOVED the jacuzzi as well as the fantastic view of the pond and wildlife behind the building. It was perfect for the two of us.

Owner response: It was a pleasure to work with Jessica & Josh as they start their life together as a family. Thanks for thinking of us for your honeymoon stay.
This property was excellent. The location was great for skiing and the view can't be beat. The accommodations were exactly what we were looking for and the bathtub/ jacuzzi was great after a long day on the slopes! My young kids were thrilled about the ducks, geese and small beaver we watched from the window. We will rent again... Thank you!

The condo was super convenient to ski lift and village. Clean which is most important to me but showing its age. Enjoyed the views from living room and the hot tub conveniently located inside the condo so didn't have to leave again after full day of skiing. The only thing was the queen bed in master needs to be replaced, it was worn, hard and slanted so I had to sleep on pullout every night. Overall very happy with our choice. The owners is super easy to communicate with.

We loved everything about this condo, but the highlights were the view, the location, and the in-room jacuzzi. Additionally, the owner was an excellent communicator and was very accommodating. We will definitely return, often! Thank you!

Owner response: It was our pleasure to help with your needs during the recent blizzard event in order to make your stay enjoyable.
Overall, nice location. Rental experience would have been excellent but there were a few things that detracted. 1. blown light bulbs in bathroom, 2. broken upper pull-out basket in the dishwasher, 3. wall control did not control heat - only got high heat or nothing, 4. kitchen not represented accurately in advertisement - much smaller/less functional.

Recommended for: Sightseeing, romantic getaway.
Owner response: We were surprised by these guest comments. 1) Imagine, a light bulb burned out. Hopefully, the inventory of spares must have also been depleted to further the inconvenience. 2) The broken dishwasher basket comment will have to be evaluated, fixed, or replaced by a technician. It was previously unknown to us or our property manager. 3) The thermostat may have failed. We'll have a technician evaluate and repair as necessary. This item was also unknown to us or our property manager. 4) Here's the Kitchen advertisement as currently shown on our listing: "Kitchen & Dining: Refrigerator - Smaller sized unit, Dishwasher, Microwave, Cooking Utensils". Not stated, but soon to be added: "stove - electric cooktop, coffee maker, & toaster". The microwave is a "convection microwave" as stated in our advertisement on another lower line. Additional information about the kitchen was shared during email communications, therefore we feel that this comment was unfair and unwarranted. No call was made to our "on-site" Property Manager for assistance or supplies (light bulbs) during this guest stay, therefore our ability to rectify any of these comments at the time was non-existent. Evaluation/repairs are underway on the electric heat control and dishwasher "basket" issue. A timely, direct contact, on these items would have been appreciated by both our property manager and us. It would have been helpful to both us and our subsequent guests in order to improve on their lodging experience. We strive to make everything as convenient and functional as possible, within the limits of space in a 545 sq ft, 1-BR condominium.

About the owner: My wife, Bonita, and I have retired and moved to our new home in rural Kansas, south of Overland Park in 2007. We are both originally Nebraska Cornhuskers and had been living in Sparta, NJ for the last 25 years. I flew out of Newark as a Continental Airlines Capt during those years. Retired by the mandatory 'Age 60' rule, my wife, a Dental Hygienist, and I looked back west. We are enjoying the peaceful lifestyle in our Midwest home near our families and our new friends.
Why the Owner Chose River Run, River Bank Lodge:
We chose the River Bank Lodge, River Run Village, Keystone for several reasons, including the view from our picture window, which is spectacular. The peace and tranquility of the mountains in the distance with the Snake River wetlands and all of nature's wildlife on display at our wall-of-windows, make for a wonderfully relaxing vacation experience, no matter the season. The shopping and dining available in the 'Village' are but a five minute walk from our door.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The River Bank Lodge is ideally situated for year-round vacation enjoyment due to its LOCATION and proximity to Keystone Resorts facilities. The view from the heart shaped indoor Jacuzzi overlooking the wetlands & Dercum Mountain in the distance, is unique. Easily accommodating four adults, our unit is but a short walk to/from the ski slopes, lift, village activities, & night-life. Only a 1.5 hr drive from DIA, west on I-70, and you can be nestled in Colorado's High Country. The Keystone Conference Center is only 2 miles away, making it very handy for our corporate guests.
