About Michael Fox

I'm a financial services professional with the intentions of retiring in the mountains with my wife.

Michael Fox purchased this townhome in 2002

Why Michael Fox chose The Ponds at Blue River

My wife and I decided to purchase in The Ponds at Blue River while we were on a skiing vacation back in 2002. The mountains, summer, fall, and winter outdoor activities, and what we think is a perfect central location all contributed to a long term decision made easy. I hope you find the same qualities in our second home that is never used enough but can be shared with guests.

What makes this townhome unique

The complex is very quiet during the week and backs up to the Blue River and Williams Range to make for a great hot tub experience. The bike trail next to the river is new and will ultimately link up with the Summit co. network of trails. The river can be heard if the master windows are open. Great view of Buffalo Mtn. out front door.

Great place but could use a few improvements

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this condo. We liked how all of the bedrooms were upstairs and how each had its own bath! Also the new carpet was very soft and clean. The downstairs living area was nice, but sort of small and awkwardly laid out in terms of furniture. Also, with slate floors and high ceilings - it seems like the room could really be “cozied up” by adding a nice plush area rug, instead of the thin animal skin that was there. Also - the number of “knick knacks” that we’re out on tables, dressers and really every surface, seemed excessive and not the best scenario when children are present. We ended up moving vases and breakable items up high or in drawers to avoid any disasters. Maybe it’s just me - but I prefer clean, empty surfaces to cluttered areas in vacation rentals. The kitchen was lacking some important items - like aluminum foil, plastic wrap, tea kettle and decent knives! The toaster oven was also not functioning. Lastly, the water pressure in all of the showers (but especially the master was extremely low and disappointing! But we did thoroughly enjoy the hot tub! Overall a good experience staying here, but could be even better with the above improvements!

Perfect location, modern and well-sized

  • 5 of 5

Had a great experience staying here with 3 others. In addition to the bare essentials, it was the little stuff that made staying here a pleasure. The jacuzzi was awesome to have, and the house was well equipped with wifi, Netflix, silverware and dishes, cookware, laundry/dryer, etc. Great location super close to Keystone and about 30-40 minutes from Vail and Breck. Highly recommend!

Beautiful unit

  • 4 of 5

Very nice unit stocked with everything you need. 3 large comfortable bedrooms with in--suite full baths make it a perfect unit for 6 adults. Living room is a little small for the overall size of the unit but the house is very well appointed.

Nicely decorated and great location

  • 5 of 5

Nice rustic decor. House had everything we needed. The only small complaint I have is that the master bed probably needs to be replaced. It was saggy on one side. Other than that, we had a great time!

Owner's Response: Hi Linda, Thank you for your review. The master mattress is actual new as of September. We replaced a Tempurpedic with a Casper brand that is noticeably softer on the edges. Regards, Mike

Spectacular stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this property during our 4 day stay at this property. It was very quiet. The hot tub was great. There's also a great soaking tub in the master bathroom. The kitchen had everything that we needed as well. Mike was readily available to help answer any questions as well. We would definitely stay here again.

Lovely, upscale townhome

  • 5 of 5

The townhome looked just like the pictures. It was very comfortable for our family which has two adult children. The location was only about a 10-15 minute drive from most of the things that we wanted to do, which was perfect for us.

We especially liked that each bedroom had it’s own bathroom. And the townhome was very clean.

The only downside was that the living room area was a little small and the batteries for the garage door opener were dying so it was difficult to use.

Overall, it was lovely and we would definitely stay there again.
