Why Kelly Lloyd chose Keystone

The Keystone Resort skiing in the Winter was the original attraction, the addition of the golfing and hiking in the Summer made it the perfect family get away for us.

Loved it! Warm cozy and homey.

  • 5 of 5

The Elk house was very warm and cozy. Plenty of room for my family and myself. We had a group of nine and even then had plenty of space to relax and unwind. Waking up to the view of the mountains from the master bedroom was priceless. Makes you just wanna lay in bed all day. The cool mountain air was perfect for a nice warm breakfast out on the patio deck. The Elk house had everything you needed, very well kept and accommodating. Loved the location of the home. After several days of hiking, we could go to the nearby towns, which is rich of history and very nice people. We felt welcome everywhere we would stop by. Everyone in the Keystone resort was very friendly and would wave as we drove by. We were heart broken to leave this house. It was very peaceful. Family and I enjoyed it so much, and just want to say thank you for the opportunity to spend the week here and to build new memories with our family. For future guest, if you choose this home I promise you won’t be disappointed. The pictures on the website does not give this home justice. I was breathless when I arrived at the Elk house. Thank you again, we are very grateful.

The Alonzo family.

Amazing house, gorgeous view

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely be staying at the Elk house again!! This house was such a beautiful house architecturally, built into the side of the base of a mountain, with the most amazing views from pretty much every room in the house. I also liked that every room gives you privacy and aren't right next to each other. The house was clean and great for entertaining. Kelly was very responsive and very nice to work with. Lots of mountain biking / hiking trails pretty much in the back yard of this house. If you like golfing, the house overlooks a golf course, but better than that is a view of the mountains in three different directions.

We did not want to leave the house when it was time to go!!

Fantastic location, great layout, full of character

  • 4 of 5

We spent a wonderful week with our two kids at the Elk House this July. It was perfect to host our family reunion/cookout on the 4th of July. We enjoyed the beautiful sunset and the view of the mountains every night. Although the house is dated (specially the bathrooms and the queen size bed in master - it’s a kings size in the other bedrooms) we would still stay here again. Kitchen was well stocked. Kelly was a pleasure to work with.

Amazing ski house

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house for families who want proximity to skiing and privacy when you're off the slopes. The kids loved being in the bunk room, and we had three great other bedrooms with privacy for the adults.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Elk house was the perfect place to stay for our group while enjoying the nearby ski resorts. The home and property were beautiful, clean, and fully equipped with everything needed for a great trip. Hope to stay here again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying with us! We are happy you appreciated the special place that Elk House is. It is a gathering house for friends and families that always helps create special memories. The out-of-doors is so accessible from this home, be it a quick drive to the ski slopes, golf in the Summer, a walk or hike right out the front door, or simply gazing out the window at the beautiful mountain views from the great room! We look forward to helping you create your family memories here!

Nicer than home

  • 5 of 5

Every summer I send a group of attorneys to the mountains for a weekend getaway. We have used this house in the past and were excited to get to use it again. While I haven't been there myself, one of our partners told me after this last visit that it was "fancy". He said it was nicer than his home. We have used this house for gatherings since it has good parking and a nice, large outdoor area. Kelly is great to work with, although I don't think she checks VRBO every day. Give her a few days to respond if sending an initial inquiry. I highly recommend it.
