About Joe Kuchenbuch

The home is a 'family' home that has been in my wife's family for many years. We decided to start renting out the home as all of the kids got older and it became more difficult for everyone to get out for a ski vacation at the same time of the year. My wife, Tina, and I have two sons in college that ski. We live in Michigan and try to get out to Colorado a couple of times a year.

What makes this house unique

The view of Buffalo Mountain from the deck and hot tub are fantastic. If you're lucky you'll be there when the sun sets giving you the view like the picture on this website. It looks even better in person!

The home is spacious and comfortable as well as well insulated and warm. We've been in the mountains when it was -25 below with 90 MPH winds and watched the weather from a very comfy living room picture window.

Finally, the home is very conveniently located to allow for access to several different ski resorts. This isn't the place for people that are looking for ski in/ski out, but if you don't mind driving 5-10 minutes to ski, you can have your pick of several world class ski areas.

I love this close-to-Keystone cabin in Summit County!

I just returned from a wonderful visit to beautiful Dillon, CO. Dillon is a picturesque mountain town nestled on the shore of Dillon Reservoir, a Colorado gem well worth visiting. In the summer you can boat, fish, bicycle, hike and take in the many other activities in the area. In the winter you can ski, snowboard, snowmobile or snowshoe in the brisk winter air. This house is spacious, inviting with all of the amenities and a charming western flair in the furnishings. From the deck there is a gorgeous view of the mountains. It was a short walk to the lake where I fished for trout. I couldn't wait to get back to the house and fire up the gas grill to have fresh fish for supper. Yum! After dinner my fiends and I went downstairs and had a great time playing air hockey and foosball in the rec room. The next day we went shopping in the many stores in Dillon and took a stroll along the lakeside. There was even a free concert in the amphitheater along the lakeshore path. The owners were gracious and helpful, even calling the first night to make sure everything was in order and going well. I had a fabulous time at this property and look forward to going back again!

It was a clean home.

  • 3 of 5

It was a little more cramped than expected. Some light bulbs didn't work, some electrical outlets didn't work, basement bathroom fan didn't work and the hot tub didn't work upon arrival. Joe was very nice and was able to get the hot tub fixed a few days later. It was a clean home in a safe neighborhood and close to Keystone for skiing and Dillon for groceries.

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin, great location, awesome views. It was perfect for the group (8 adults and 2 kids). Joe was extremely helpful and answered questions in a timely manner. Hot tub was a huge plus after a long day on the slopes. I would absolutely rent this cabin again :)

Amazing cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was a great place for 12 of us to stay. The owner was super helpful through the whole process from the beginning. He gets back to you fast, and tries to help in any way he can. The cabin is in a great location with pretty views. Would definitely recommend this cabin, and would defintely stay there again if I go back.

Clean, cozy, great for big groups

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, and the owners very easy to work with and responsive. The house is clean, cozy and perfect for a big group. Its nice to have the garage and driveway, so plenty of room for multiple cars. The hot tub was a nice treat after a long day of skiing!

Our family really enjoyed this wonderful property. It is welcoming, roomy and clean. I loved the rustic mountain feel and the big fireplace. The basement game area was lots of fun and there is a beautiful view from the hot tub and deck. Joe was very helpful from the time we booked; he made sure that we had everything we needed. I would highly recommend this home and we hope to visit it again.

Nice Warm Home Suitable for families or groups

  • 4 of 5

Every year my friends and I fly into Colorado to ski. Last year we had 10 people total. This home was reasonably priced, had nice views of the mountains, and was conveniently located to Keystone. The home was a little out dated, very small television in living room and the upstairs bedrooms look like they need a bit of paint and TLC. The hot tub was a bonus, although be sure the water is clear. When we arrived the water was murky and there was a ton of nasty yellow foam going on, luckily we had a hot tub enthusiast with us that found the tub chems and fixed it up immediately. After the tub was treated the water was crystal clear, nice and hot, and the jets were nice and relaxing. Great end to every day on the slopes.

The owners are very professional and nice people. He always got back to me in a timely manner regarding any issue. He returned the deposit check in a timely fashion as well, which was nice.

All in all, for the price, location, and size this home in summit cove is great for anyone, Summer, Fall, Winter or Spring. We will consider coming back in the future.
