About the property

Lodge, 12 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 10+ Baths, (Sleeps 28-30)


The Lodge at Carolina in the Pines is a unique 8000-square-foot, luxury, mountain home offered by Mountain Clover Homes that is minutes from five major ski areas, but is the ultimate spot for summer activities. It is one of the many large homes offered by Mountain Clover Homes.

This lodge can be rented as the perfect private home for weddings, family reunions, corporate retreats, or the ultimate group vacation ~ the house was originally used as an upscale bed and breakfast so everything is beautifully maintained and all of the rooms are self contained allowing for privacy even when traveling with a large group. The Lodge is walking distance from breathtaking Lake Dillon and marina along the bike path just outside our front door.

There are breathtaking views from ten of the twelve individually decorated bedrooms; each offering a TV, private bath. Great rooms include a home theater with a selection of books, games, and CD/stereo. Hot tub, pool table, poker table, and commercial kitchen.

About The Owner

The Lodge was created by a lifelong dream to own and operate an upscale mountain bed and breakfast lodge. It was a wonderful experience. When my two boys were born, it was time to leave my bed and breakfast dreams behind and live my dream of being a mom. I opened up the two bedroom owners' quarters and have been able to offer the house with 12 master bedrooms. There are still telltale signs of the lodge's past life....breakfast in bed trays, fabulous beds with high quality linens, beautiful furnishings and spaces for large groups along with private nooks throughout, ensuite baths with each room, and my wonderful commercial-grade kitchen. The boys and I feel so blessed to be able to offer our home to large groups!

Why The Owner chose Dillon

Please note that the bed setup listed is a little misleading because it reflects the maximum number of each type of bed that the home has to offer. i.e. There can be as many as 5 King Beds or 10 Twin Beds. The listing below should clarify and please contact us with any questions.

The Lodge at Carolina in the Pines has 12 BR/12.5 Baths and sleeps up to 28 guests (as we like to say, "with heads on pillows resting in real beds"). We wouldn't ask you to sleep on pullout sofas, futons, or air mattresses behind the washing machine. :)

Wonderful! Spacious yet very cozy!

  • 5 of 5

This is what escaping to the mountains should always be like. A beautiful mountain property with all the modern conveniences. Within walking distance to restaurants and shopping, but tucked away very privately with gorgeous mountain views. I definitely would recommend this home to friends and would hope to be able to return myself!

Best beautiful house for a big family trip

  • 5 of 5

This is the best house for a big family. There are 12 beautiful bedrooms all with their own bathrooms so for the first time since we've started traveling together, everyone in the family was happy with the accommodations. The dining room was perfect with 3 tables so we could all eat together. The kitchen was great. We loved the hot tub and had the jukebox going every night. It was fun having three generations dancing. I recommend this house for big families, big groups, even corporate groups. For the price, this house is perfect.

One of the best places for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Every summer we have a large family reunion. This house was one of the best suited place for us. Carol, the owner was a pleasure to talk to every time. The house was fully stocked, large and well decorated house, and accommodated all of us comfortably.

She was accommodating and helpful. I loved reading the history behind the house.

I would definitely consider renting this house again for a future reunion.

wonderful home for family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Our family (27) gathered at the Carolina in the Pines last summer for a week. It was a wonderful stay! The home is beautiful, with a huge modern kitchen and a fantastic deck with mountain views. We especially like the privacy of the bedrooms, all with private bathrooms, in separate "wings" off of the main living/dining rooms. Excellent for those who wanted a go to bed a bit earlier than the other late night owls. We could not have been more happy with the home. After returning to our homes, within a few weeks, we decided it was so perfect we would book again for summer 2017. We are all excited about our return!

Great place to get friends and family together

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this property several times and have rented it for the March 2017 ski season. It is a great property for families and large groups. We usually have 6-7 families staying together (with 20+ staying in the house). The kids love being together and it is a great place to get together after a great day of skiing! Would highly recommend.
