About Shannon Gaydos-Hinkle

Growing up in the mid-west, I spent every spring break skiing Summit County. Before the boys were born, my husband and I continued to enjoy day trips up to Summit County. With small children, it became difficult to make the drive up I-70 for a day of skiing. We want our boys to appreciate skiing/boarding as much as we do, so our mountain condo allows our family to take mini-breaks up for skiing and enjoying all that the high country has to offer. We live outside Boulder, CO with our twin sons.

Shannon Gaydos-Hinkle purchased this condo in 2010

Why Shannon Gaydos-Hinkle chose Northwest

My husband and I are avid snow boarder/skiers, but with young children it was tough to make the drive up I-70 each day. After looking around Summit County, we knew this was the place for our family. It is close to everything (proximity to the gondola is key with children), and has a great family atmosphere.

What makes this condo unique

Steps away from the new high speed gondola and night skiing at Keystone. Vaulted ceilings, exposure on three sides, penthouse corner unit with fantastic ski-run views, all while maintaining the tranquility of a mountain escape. Our condo has enough space where everyone in the family can spread out.

Guestbook comments from the owner


The condo was great and very clean. It’s a corner unit (so plenty of windows and nice sun in the morning) with a large balcony and a fabulous view of the hills and river behind the unit. I loved sitting on the couch and looking at the view. It looks like the owners (which are new according to the listing) have been working on the place. The large flat screen TV in the living room, the towels in the bathrooms, and some of the kitchen items were all new. We watched A Bug’s Life on DVD that was provided. There is WiFi although my 3G AT&T coverage on my iPhone worked well in Keystone so didn’t really need it. We used the kitchen a lot and found it well stocked with everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and we slept soundly.

The complex provides a lot of amenities. After some tough days mountain biking, the adults-only hot tub (there is one for families as well) provided welcome relief. The pool is not large but well designed with rocks around it and has a water slide which actually was kind of fun. Even our 70 year old family friend had a go. There is also a large grill that anyone can use in the pool area. The lobby has a waterfall feature; there is a kid’s play room with lots of stuffed animals and a little house. There is a home theater type room with comfortable seats that had lots of DVDs, but we never used it. There is also a small gym which wasn’t bad although we didn’t use it either.


Mountain biking and biking in general around Keystone is great. Keystone has a mountain bike park where you can take the gondola or ride up a dirt road to the top of the 11600 ft. mountain. There were maps provided in the condo about the various trails down the mountain. My husband and I are new to mountain biking and I can assure you that the easier trails are NOT easy. It was a work out riding up the hill (2300 ft) and a bit anxiety filling riding down the trails. There were definitely hard core mountain bikers all around with the motorcycle helmets and body armor. For an easier time, we rode to Dillon one day along the paved bike path which starts just outside the condo and had a fabulous breakfast at Araphoe Café and Pub. We then road around Lake Dillon to Frisco (along another fabulous paved bike path) and went to a festival.

Overall we had a fabulous time and would definitely stay at this place again, maybe to try out skiing in Keystone.

Fabulous Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time! The condo is very close to the gondola which was helpful since we had kids. It was also a short walk over a beautiful bridge to get to the village. There is a view from every room but the best is from the living room/balcony. The pool is heated and there are two hot tubs. We had great communication with the owner. We will definitely be back!

Great Condo and Owner

  • 5 of 5

Excellent Communication from the owner, very clean and updated unit, very short 5 min walk to gondola or river run village! Stayed here Christmas week 2015. Beautiful views, windows on three sides of this unit! This building also has a heated garage! In Keystone River Run Village is the place to be- restaurants, shops, lifts all here. Keystone also has shuttles that will take you to other places around Keystone. The shuttles run about every 15-20 minutes. No need to drive anywhere. Definitely recommend this condo!!!

Perfect condo for our family vacation! The pool, hot tubs and steam room were so great after a day of skiing. The condo was so comfortable and clean. Perfect location, as it was just a short walk to the gondola, and the ski lockers and underground parking were a great added bonus. We would highly recommend this property and will definitely stay again when we are back in Keystone. The owner was great to work with. So close to shopping and restaurants, but our boys never wanted to leave the pool area. Had a wonderful time, thank you so much for sharing your condo with us!

What a Fabulous weekend!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a girls weekend and had the best time! The condo is amazing! Plenty of space, very well maintained, clean, and super comfortable. Awesome view of the mountain and you can walk just a short distance to the village which has shopping, coffee, restaurants, etc.. We were there in the summertime, but what a great place to stay in the winter. You can see the ski lift right from the balcony. You can probably pop your skiis on in the parking lot and you're good to go. I would highly recommend this for anyone wanting a "place like home" for their vacation.
