About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

You will feel on top of the world in our beautifully furnished Watch Hill condo in Wildernest. Large south-facing windows look over expansive views of Buffalo Mountain, the Ten-Mile Range, and Lake Dillon. Vaulted ceilings give a spacious feel to this two-story unit, and the view from the master bedroom is unsurpassed.

The condo is on the second floor-- but don't worry, there are only 12 steps to climb. Three bedrooms provide comfortable sleeping accomodations for 6 adults, with king bed, queen bed, and a new queen with a twin bunk on top for the kids. A twin airbed provides sleeping for an additional person. Each bedroom has its own flat screen cable TV and VCR/DVD.

The newly remodeled kitchen is fully equipped for gourmet cooking, and the living room contains an entertainment center with a large screen high definition cable TV, sound bar, DVD player, and High Speed Internet access for your laptop. A large collection of CDs, games, and books is provided for your entertainment, and you can hook your laptop directly to the TV to watch movies. Both bathrooms have been recently remodeled with travertine tile, clear glass doors, and updated fixtures. Free shuttle bus to all Summit County ski areas.

Wildernest is ideally situated within 15-30 minutes of all Summit County ski areas, and a shuttle bus provides free service to each area. After a day of skiing or hiking, enjoy watching the sun set over Buffalo Mountain, or relax in one of the three indoor and outdoor hot tubs, located just a short walk from our door.

About Sue Kinnamon

I live in the Front Range north of Denver. I use the 'Schussduck' as a vacation retreat-- a place to get away from it all. I love skiing, hiking, and fishing, all within easy reach of the condo.

Sue Kinnamon purchased this condo in 1991

Why Sue Kinnamon chose Silverthorne

I chose this condo because of its supurb view, its location in Wildernest, and the easy access to free public transportation to all Summit County ski areas.

What makes this condo unique

I love watching all the birds that come at our feeder on the balcony-- hummingbirds in the summer and blue jays in the winter. We even occasionally see a moose visiting the beaver pond just below our complex.

Excellent Accomodations

  • 4 of 5

The condo was perfect for our family. Comfortable, spacious and warm. Sue was so accommodating and kind. If we didn't bring it, it was provided on site. Only one minor critique: the free bus system from Copper Mountain took over 90 minutes one way including two transfer stations, so we chose to drop off and pick up our skiers every day. Not a big hassle, but also not what we hoped for. Otherwise, I recommend this place highly. Thank you.

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This condo is very spacious and is extremely comfortable. It is stocked will all the necessary amenities from kitchen utensils to, just about every game you can imagine. EVERYTHING seems to have been very well thought out.

The position of the condo offers an incredible view of three mountains. Great way to wake up in the morning!

We spent most of our time staying pretty active during the day and attended a concert at Red Rock. The condo is located within a reasonable distance to many of the attractions and activities we were interested in; not to mention, everything we needed was in Silverthorne, Dillon or Frisco. We had an absolutely wonderful time, and i cant think of anything i would change or do to improve our experience.

The owner was very courteous and responsive during the reservation and during our stay! I would love to have the opportunity to visit and stay here again!

Clean, spacious, conveniently located & well furnished

  • 3 of 5

Enjoyed the condo, glad for the washer/dryer, close hot tub, close parking, nearby grocery and restaurants, nice view from living room and upstairs bedroom, heat works well, lots of hot water, amenities left by previous renters came in handy, outdoor gas grill works great, kitchen fully furnished and very useful.

The master bed was very comfortable but the other two queens were not. I would suggest upgrading those mattresses.

Owner's Response: Sorry that you found the downstairs mattresses uncomfortable. The queen mattress in the bunk room is almost brand new, and another guest liked the other queen mattress the best of any in the condo! None of the mattresses are old-- it is a matter of whether you like firm mattresses (like the ones downstairs) or softer mattresses (like the king mattress upstairs.
