About the Property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Our 1834 sqft 'Blue Coyote' townhouse is named after Keystone's infamous wolf-like Blue Coyote that roams the wetlands around the Snake River. It is a VERY short walk from your private door to the Mountain House Lifts, but best of all, when you're the most tired, it is ski-in to the road in front of the Ironwood complex. A 35-yard walk to our private single car garage through some evergreen trees gets you to a place to rest your tired feet.

If Little Red Riding Hood walks directly to the Mountain House base area she walks just 220 yards through a skier parking lot to the Peru and Argentine lifts. It is a walk that should take less than 5 minutes. Keystone provides red wagons to carry your kids and/or equipment to make that short trip extra easy. Keystone Ski School, rentals and dinning can all be found at the lower Mountain House Base area. The Mountain House Base ski lifts are far less crowded than the well-known River Run gondola and ski lifts. It is a wonderful secrete to keep quiet!


'What big eyes you have...the better to see you with, my dear.' Staying home in the Blue Coyote is a cozy joy with soaring windows and vaulted ceilings that overlook enchanting Snake River and Tenderfoot Mountain vistas. You are steps from the longest (3.5 miles) Green Run in North America called Schoolmarm. You are so near Schoolmarm that you can detour off between Sage Brush, click off your skis and walk across the street to Ironwood. In fact, you can gaze at the Schoolmarm lighted run from the master bed. If you are wearing a bright red hood, you can be seen skiing down the mountain from the Ironwood Townhouses complex!

'What big ears you have...the better to hear you with, my dear.'
The sounds of the Snake River rushing by can be heard from nearly every room. The Snake runs about 20 yards from our back deck. Ironwood is a 14-unit, quiet townhouse complex that feels delightfully secluded despite the fact it is so close to both the Mountain House and River Run amenities.

'What big Hands You Have...the better to rub together in front of the fire, my dear.' Blue Coyote's guests can sit fireside on nippy nights. Or, guests can choose to take a dip in the private 8 person-hot tub to warm up under the falling snow and glistening stars. On a clear night, guests sitting in the hot tub look up to see Ursula Minor (The Little Dipper). The private hot tub is located on the back deck overlooking the Snake River. The hot tub is extraordinarily secluded.

'What big teeth you have...the better to eat you with, my dear.' The Blue Coyote's kitchen is well-equipped with everything from Flour to a Fondue pot. A 5-burner gas range and an outdoor grill make cooking a delight. However, some may rather eat at the world-acclaimed Keystone restaurants, like Alpenglow Stube, The Ranch, Snake River Saloon, Der Fondue Chessel or The Ski Tip Lodge. Our favorite pizza joint is Pizza 101. Each restaurant is a special and memorable experience.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Our favorite activity is road biking...even better than skiing. WE LOVE KEYSTONE AND OUR BLUE COYOTE! We are two business professors that love the outdoors and particularly Colorado. Our puppies have made peace with the many animals in the forests and wetlands around Keystone. We have met the Blue Coyote on two memorable occasions. He is not just a storied beast...he is REAL. Sweet Pea, a 9-year old black Lab mix and Sullivan is a 2-year old crazy man. Our 16-year old a Golden Retriever mix, first met the Blue Coyote on "Granny's Trail," near our townhouse...very fitting.

Why the Owner Chose Keystone, CO, USA:
This property fits us perfectly mostly because it is big enough to live in year round without being crowded. Secondly, the convenience to the ski mountain is perfect. And, the Snake River and the bike path are right outside our door! It is our heaven.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Surprisingly, in the 14+ years of skiing in CO, we rarely venture out to ski Breck nor Vail because it's just too perfect to walk out our door to the lifts at Mountain House Base in Keystone. It's pretty great to come in for lunch and take a quick nap before skiing the afternoon away.
