Why Kelly Lloyd chose Northwest

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.

Worked well for our family

  • 4 of 5

This house is at the END of the road! Takes a good 5 -8 minutes to get to the highway. Elk House worked well for our family. We were missing 1 wife and 1 baby from our group, so we had just enough bedroom space. The little TV room was used for our "bachelor" dad. Each of the main bedrooms were spaced at the end of separate hallways; one was actually accessed from the outside porch, but worked fine for the "grandparents". The bunk room was great for our little ones - both for sleep and playtime. Lincoln Logs and Duplo blocks were a hit! There was not a table nearly big enough for our family (7 adults + 4 kids), but there was a high chair + 2 pack & plays. The one thing I would request would be some plastic cups and plates for kiddos. There is no TV in the main living area; TVs in the bedrooms + a larger one in the little TV room. If our whole family is able to make the "family ski trip" next year, we will need to find something larger - otherwise - we'd be back at Elk House!

Great rental for a girls getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful spacious home with all the amenities. With hiking just out your front door, a fully stocked kitchen and private hot tub, there was no reason to leave the property. The best part was working with Kelly, who has amazing customer service!

Lovely, well appointed home

  • 5 of 5

Two families shared this home. I believe we were all very happy during our stay. The spaces worked well for us. We cooked most nights and found plenty of pots/pans and utensils. The view was remarkable. Two features caused us a little issue. The outside room shower did not spray so we took advantage of the bathtub and showered in the bathroom off a tiny TV den. The den was small for our bowl game sports watching crowd. A hidden tv in the great room would have helped our crew.

The best help was a ski keystone parking pass to a nearby lot. We loved our ski vacation

Best view on the mountain!

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful home! There were 10 of us and we had plenty of sleep options! The floor plan and the decor are really nice. There is a mother in law type suite that you can access just outside the front door.

Just had a blizzard, so the view of the snow covered property and mountains out of the living room window was absolutely beautiful! You can see several unobstructed mountain ranges for miles.

We have stayed at many ski rentals, but never had a view this beautiful. The ski resort was a short 10-12 minute ride from the home.

Kelly, the manager of the property, was absolutely amazing and helped us with anything we needed throughout our stay!

Beautiful mountain location

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have had our annual family vacation at the Elk House. We love the one-floor plan and the large living room area where we can all gather. The location is perfect. It is the furthest house out Keystone Ranch Road. We can ride out the driveway and be on some of our favorite mountain biking trails. You also have use of the community pool about a half mile away. It sleeps 14 people which is exactly the size of our group. The views are incredible; you look out over the valley, golf course, lake and beautiful Rocky Mountain peaks. We definitely hope to return.
