About Keith Brown
Our family has been coming to Summit County to vacation for years ... both winter and summer. We live in the Denver area, and truly look forward to our 'down' time and getting away to Summit County to unplugging from the rat race. Nothing has been as beneficial for coming together as a family than when we gather to enjoying all of the great things Summit County offers! The Unique Benefits of this Home... We really enjoy being able to walk to Lake Dillon, biking on the bike trail, hiking behind our home, sledding from our place, getting away from the crowds when it's time to relax ... the location is perfect for us! We enjoy hiking, biking, walking to Dillon Marina in the summer In the winter, of course, we set our sights on skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, snowmobiling & so on. One of our favorite things about our home is being able to spend some time before dinner, building a large fire, listening to our favorite tunes using the stereo and outdoor speakers. Dining out is always a joy with the numerous choice of great restaurants in Summit County! Then, after all of the activity of the day, it's great to get a good night's rest, thanks to the very comfortable bedding we've put into our home. When it's time to leave ... well, we just have to start planning our next visit!
Keith Brown purchased this House in 1994

Perfect Family Gathering with Magnificent Views!
This was our third ski trip where my brother’s, parents and our kids all met up for a week in the mountains and the house accommodated all 14 (ages 4-69) of easy very easily. Keith, the owner and manager, was extremely easy to work with and checked on us to make sure everything was to our liking as well as providing suggestions on things to do around Dillon. He even included instructions/labels on how to use the various electronics. Another nice touch in today’s electronic heavy world was all the charging stations stashed around the house.
The accommodations were very comfortable and clean with very nice bedding. The kitchen was well equipped with quality cooking utensils, sharp knives, good pans, etc. For our large group, we used the eating area in conjunction with the family room to seat everyone for meals. The views were absolutely breathtaking. The kids (ages 4-17) and the young at heart loved hanging out downstairs with the extensive movie collection and foosball. I would highly recommend staying here. We used it for the winter but would like to try a summer vacation where we could enjoy all the great outdoor space around the house as well.
Great Long weekend getaway.
We loved renting this house during the long Thanksgiving weekend. The weather was beautiful and there was wonderful outside space to enjoy with fabulous views! The house was well appointed, I think the furniture has been updated since the pictures. We had everything we needed, from dishes, tv's, extra linens, etc. There is a trail head right out the back, which was great for those in our group who don't ski. I would have loved to enjoy the views in a hot tub, but that wouldn't prevent me from coming back. The location is great, especially for skiing both Keystone and Breckenridge. I would definitely stay here with my family again.
Loved The Views, Decor, and Location
After our first vacation in Summit County, we were excited to go back this year. We had never rented a home there before, so this was our first experience...and what an amazing one it was. Eight of us, four adults and 4 children (ages 5-10), spent a week at this beautiful home with breathtaking views. The home is so nicely appointed and tastefully done it really added to our maintain getaway experience. There was plenty of room for everyone and it had all the necessary amenities. We cooked a fair amount at home but when we decide to go out it was easy and convenient to do so, too. As for skiing, we really enjoyed being able to ski in Keystone, Breck., Cooper Mt and Vail for this conveniently located home. We would definitely return and stay at this home. It is a wonderful property and a fabulous place for a familiy vacation.
Wonderful home, gorgeous views...
We brought 4 of our college age and older children for a great trip. Plenty of room for big family members, the house was clean and well appointed. Incredible views overlooking mountains. We used the kitchen and oven for meals. Easy access to grocery shopping, restaurants, very convenient to ski areas and snowshoeing out the back door. House had all the amenities one would expect from a high end property but felt like a home. We will be back!
