About the property

You’ll love the stunning views and serenity of our spacious and comfortable Watch Hill condominium, nestled at the edge of the National Forest in Silverthorne’s Wildernest. Centrally located to all major ski resorts in the area, including Keystone, Breckenridge, Vail, Copper Mountain, and Arapahoe Basin, this three bedroom, three bathroom condo will accommodate eight people easily and ten in a pinch.

The Master Bedroom is furnished with a king bed and a private bathroom. Bedroom #2 has a queen bed and bathroom next door. A staircase leads to Bedroom #3 in the loft with another full bathroom. The loft includes a lounge area with additional TV and is furnished with a trundle bed which can be configured as two twin beds or one king size bed.

A pack-and-play crib and booster seat is also available for an infant or toddler.

The living room has a queen-size sleeper sofa that can accommodate two guests. It also features 20-foot windows with a soaring view of the Ten Mile Range, Buffalo Mountain and the National Forest. Amenities include gas fireplace, flat screen TV/DVD with cable and wireless high-speed internet.

An outdoor communal hot tub is just steps away from our front door, offering a great way to unwind after the day’s activities. Laundry facility available on premises (coin operated). The Salt Lick hiking trail is just below our balcony with two trail heads only 1/4 mile away. You will also want to visit the quaint, historic mountain towns of Dillon, Frisco and Breckenridge.

About William Himes

Bill and Linda Himes have been married for 18 years and live in Elmhurst, IL. Bill is a conductor and composer of instrumental and choral works and has over 170 publications to his credit. Bill and Linda are now both retired and plan to visit their mountain hideaway more often while leaving key holiday and spring break ski times available for rentals.

William Himes purchased this condo in 2007

Why William Himes chose Northwest

Bill and Linda have skied for years in Colorado's Summit County and bought their Silverthorne condo in 2007 in order to fully enjoy year-round the beautiful scenery and skiing and hiking in what must be one of God's favorite playgrounds. They chose this condo because of its quiet location and the supreme views of the National Forest, Breckenridge Peak 1 and Buffalo Mountain as well as the spacious and comfortable floor plan that can comfortably accommodate their extended family.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is very comfortable place in all seasons. Its central location to retail stores, restaurants, theaters, and all ski areas in the region is a major plus that we have grown to appreciate even more through numerous visits each year. One of our favorite pastimes is to spot wildlife from our balcony - including moose, fox, muledeer, and hummingbirds.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We held so many of my family in this place with 3 bed rooms and a pull out couch plus a kitchen that had everything for us as far as dishes and trash bags! The views from the living room were to die for! And the out door hot tub was an amazing point as well. Had an indoor one also but who is that un-adventurous... we skied keystone and Vail for 4 days and it was amazing! I'm in the navy so no weed for me but a weed shop is right down the road lol...

Good location, close to Keystone & Copper mountain. Very clean And comfortable. Hot tub wasn't working which was a downer. Was looking forward to that after long days on the mountain.

Great condo for group ski trip!

  • 5 of 5

Coming back to the site to write this review and seeing the photos made me want to go right back! We had a group of 8 and we all slept very comfortably, the views were beautiful and it was very conveniently located! There is a target right at the bottom of the hill as well as plenty of places to shop and eat or even rent skis! Some of our group rented from Virgin Islands ski rentals and got great deals. The Condo is within 15-20 minutes of more mountains than you could ski in a week! Copper mountian, Breck, A Basin, keystone, etc! We even saw foxes playing outside from the balcony a few times, I can't say enough great things about this place! Bill was very prompt in getting back to my many emails and was a pleasure to talk with.

Thanks again Bill and Linda!

First choice for a skiing vacation

  • 5 of 5

The condo is not just a rental property. It is Bill and Linda’s second home, which is reflected in the level of maintenance, cleanliness, decor and amenities, as well as the location, offering incredible views. Bring your own shampoo, everything else is provided, including a detailed information sheet about the condo and surrounding area. The home is very spacious, exceptionally comfortable and conveniently located as a base for both downhill and cross-country skiing. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a full scale supermarket a short drive away, so once we stocked up we didn’t have to spend time or money eating out unless we chose, leaving more time for skiing and the hot tub. All in all, a terrific value, and our first choice for any future ski trips.

Great place- Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a spectacular week of skiing with the family in Summit County and this place was the perfect base to operate from. We had 3 couples and a 2-year old and this unit was just right for what we needed. They even had a pack-and-play and booster seat for the little guy. The views were breathtaking, and the unit was clean and extremely well furnished. The kitchen was the best furnished of any place we have ever rented. The owners, Bill and Linda, we a pleasure to deal with, and very accommodating and responsive. And the price was right! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a nice place in Silverthorne.
