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!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Jun 24, 2010

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!

Great place and an even better owner.

  • 5 of 5

We had a large family gathering at this house over a long weekend. Tons of room for everyone. We enjoyed grilling out on the deck and the hot tub was lots of fun. We enjoyed soaking while taking in the views and the stars at night were just incredible from the hot tub. The beds we all very comfortable, the space fit us well and we had a blast. The property is certainly not new and might not have the glitz that others have but the value for the price we thought was fantastic. Property = Great value!

Joe the owner = even greater! First of all he called me when we arrived just to make sure we arrived ok and found everything we needed, etc. Super nice guy. Unfortunately on our 2nd day we had an unexpected occurrence come up while staying here that was outside the owners immediate control and ours as well. The detail of the issue are not really important but what is worth sharing is Joe's response to us and the situation. Joe was very caring, very communicative and very responsive to our needs. He bent over backwards to make sure our needs were met and our stay was pleasant.

At the end of the day if you are looking for a place with a great location, large enough to house a crew of peeps, for a great value and if personal service and care from the owner is important to you as well....then I wholeheartedly recommend this property to you.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had two families stay for Spring break, with a couple extra kids. House has plenty of room, and everyone had a bed to sleep in. (11 of us) The house has everything you need to make it feel like home. From kitchen to game room, it has enough room for everyone to have some space. Joe made sure all your needs are met. The location in Dillon was perfect for skiing at A-Basin and Keystone.

Great location

The house was in a great location. The beds were comfortable and clean. Joe was great to work with. It was a little more cramped than expected and could use an update.

Close proximity to Keystone, Cozy cabin that fit 12 comfortably , and excellent management

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very affordable and only a 9 minute drive to Keystone. There were 12 of us staying in the cabin and we all fit very comfortably in the cabin. The hot tub worked great and we were able to utilize the boot dryer which came in handy.

The cabin did tend to get pretty hot even with the thermostat adjusted to 65 degrees. I would say this was the only downside of the cabin.

Joe was excellent. Had a friend who left his pillow behind and he was very accommodating to get it returned to him.

Overall a wonderful experience.

Great location, needs some updates

  • 3 of 5

Joe was great to work with and the house in Dillon was a perfect location for our trip. The house worked well except for a few areas. Some of the lights in the kitchen and bedrooms didn’t work. Also the beds were pretty worn in and definitely needed new mattresses. The water in the hot tub was green, couldn’t tell if it was from over chlorination or under. HVAC worked well as well as the appliances. Having a garage and a large driveway were a plus as well.
